SLIPCOTE CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 4 February 1915
SLIPCOTE CHEESE. One of the simplest of soft cheeses to make is the old-fashion slipcote I'heese, which is produced in Rutland shire (England) and occasionally also in tlie surrounding districts. It lias only quite local importance. The mo Oiod of its manufacture is briefly as follows:—A small quantity of milk is coagulated by adding; a little renuet, llii! curd thru lining drained either in a strainer or ebcesc-clotli until siillici eutly dry to be moulded. The moulding may lie done i" a dessert-plate, or alternately in a small square wooden form, about 4 in. by 8 in., aud 2 in. deep. Here the rest - of the whey drains off. When of firm consistency, the cheeses arc taken out aud removed to a cool place, being placed on a shelf and left, to ripen for from three days lo a week—according to the wea ther. The warmer it is, the more quickly do they ripen and bocomo ready for consumption. Formerly it was customary to put them between cabbage leaves while put by until (it. to eat, but thi...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 4 February 1915
FOR WOMEN (tiy "Ambroain«.'') Delightful lingerie dresses are seen on nil sides. Somo express the tunic, and some as regards skirt lines "ro plain. A dress of the latter type is figured crepe, high waist, drapy blouse with "V" to waist, with net inset. The. "V" is bordered with insertion, which repeats 011 cuff and lower pnrt of skirt. Charm is given the blouse section by the shoulder yoke sleeve. Dresses of this kind should have an early Victorian air, when tiie dainty dresser always looked as though she had stepped out of a picture /nunc. A couple of roses at the end of "V" give life to the gown, and a black vel vet ribbon is employed for a girdle., once round, then looped to front hip, with catch and streamers. 'Jbc all white dress is ever popular. Here, then we see what excellent results are attained with working flounces—foot of skirt, and two tunic flounces. The blouse will have a yoke and upper part will be of same, the other of the plain and drapy. A cross-over blouse is sur...

No More Fat People. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915
No More Fat People. Most fat people seem to think that tho only way to take oft' fat is to use dangerous drugs, follow a starvation diet or to take strenuous exercise. But all this is nonsense, and, thanks to the recont discovery of an eminent scientist, thousands of men and wom en are taking off several pounds of useless fat a A'eek, by simply rubbing on to the iat part—hips, arms, chin, or abdomen—a simple lotion made by pouring a cup of hot water over a dram of quassia chips; let it stand for a minute, then strain through a cloth and add 3 ounces of Cirola 1'ark Ex tract. Pour the mixture into a bottle ami apply night anil morning, rub bing it in with the hands for about 10 minutes, using a circular motion, and the fat will almost seem io melt away before your very eyes. The in gredients, which are inexpensive, may be had of any chomist, and the re sults to be obtained are really re markable.
