WHAT DOES SPENDING COST? How much does it cost you to spend £100? The answer is £100 down, and at least is per annum for the rest of your life. Yet what man would knowingly spend £100 that put him under obligation - to pay £4 per year for life? ? None, perhaps, but niany do at unconsciously when they spend money might otherwise have earned interest at 4 -7c indefinitely. Every pound you spejid has attached to it an invisible string of pennies ?which you spend with it.

CHAMELEON WORDS. They Take on New Colors and Meanings is a New Generation. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

CHAMELEON WORDS. They Take on New Colors aad Meanings is a New Generation, The most ^misused word in our language 'to-day is 'dole,' -when applied, as it commonly ia, to the UBemployr-if.-i^t insurance pay drawn by an -v .v-r-f-.vork man ot woman. For a dole meant something given in charity to a beggar, and there is nothing whatever in the nature of charity in coneetion with unemployment pay; neither is its recipient a beggbr. The word 'flapper,' again, when applied to the newly enfranchised women voters, is a misnomer. There is no such thing as the oft-quoted 'flapper vote,' for the simple reason that there are no flapper voters. Flap jperdom ceases at the age of sixteen, or thereabouts But popular usage is always stron f-er than rules and definitions. In a ew years' time, perhaps, the dic tionary-makers will have surrenderd, and 'dole' will become unemploy ment pay and 'flapper' any woman under thirty. If that seems impos sible, think of the original meanings of some of the words ...

FLOWERS ARE SO DEAR [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

FASHION'S VOICE. HEARD FROM OVERSEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

FASHION'S VOICE. HEARD FROM OVERSEAS. There are three materials which matter most just now in Paris: Jer sey, in various fancy weaves foi morning wear; crepe de chine for afternoon; and satin for evening. The morning frock is usually made with a slender bodice in which the becoming cross-over style is intro duced, and a skirt that has wide, flat pleats all round. White jersey, zig zagged with blue and gold, looks very fresh on sunny mornings, worn with biscuit silk stockings and brown and white shoes. One suit seen was a two-piece in brilliant yellow The skirt was quite straight to the hips, but widened into very full godets below; flat, half-; moon shape incrustation of brick-red suede marked the beginning of this flare. The pockets on the straight, well-fitting jersey were also half moon shaped, and these and the nar row belt were likewise in brick-red suede. So many different 'little frocks' of crepe de chine there are that we cannot grow weary of them either! They are so beautif...

THE HANGING SWORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

THE HANGING SWORD. It came as a shock to Michael Fol litt to learn that Karl Roeschen was dead; the news that Ayris had killed him knocked him off his balance com pletely. Bill Ayris was the last man in the world to murder another in cold blood. Apart from that, he hap pened to be Follitt's best friend. Liong alter the dusky messenger had left Follitt leaned back in his long cane chair, inopking out, re filling, and lighting his pipe, at in tervals, trying to piece the thing together. It was three years and! more since he had thrown up a mag istrate's job to plant cocoanuts on! his own account, and yet the solving! of intricate crimes had not lost itsi fascination.

"KILL THE BABY!" The Film Producer Doesn't Always Mean Just Exactly What He Says. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

' KILL THE BABY!' The Film Producer Doesn't Always Mean Just Exactly What ! He Says. i ? ? 1 If you entered a iilm studio and heard someone bawl, 'Kill the baby,' you would doubtless be a little startled. But the electri cians would merely put out the lights. The films 'nave given birth to a new 'slanguage,' which is about the most striking and original ever coin ed. A 'lamp-post' is any piece of axpesive jewellery, while the com mand, 'Hey, baby, just hang- around those bright lights,' .means 'Will you please wear your diamond neck lace?' ? j 'Lady, knead the pudding' is an-! other way of telling an actress that her make-up needs attention. The term 'lap dissolve' means the over lapping of one piece of action 011 an other, double exposure or double printing on the same film. Mysteries of 'Slanguage.' Just as weird and mysterious as film slang is that of tramps. It is in' this 'slanguage' that the 'Abraham- man's News,' the tramps' newspaper, j ublished in Birmingham, is written. 'A...

REGAINING FRESHNESS. FIRST AID TO A LIFELESS COMPLEXION. For rapid results in regaining j lofct freshness and youthfulness of ekin there a*e few things equal the complexion mask. There are various kinds of com plexion masks to be had at any besiuty specialists for the asking and the paying, but the average woman is most interested in . simple masks she can prepare at ] home. I Most simple of any mask probably is the egg, benzoin and oatmeal. This is prepared by separating the whites of two eggs and beating the yolks until very thick. Then add five drops of simple tincture of tenzoin, still beating as the drops fall. Apply the mask thickly, then lie down and rest for 15 to 20 minutes, keeping the face as still as possible. Then remove the mask with towel wrun* out o? tepid water. This does not conclude the treat ment, however, for the next pro cedure is to apply a thick oatmeal paste made with nest meal and warm water. Let this remain on the skin five minutes, wash off with warm wate...

THE LISTENER-IN. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

THE LISTENER-IN. It was late at night, and in the , lonely little cottage on the moor's edge Joshua Bvar-d was seated beside a fading fire. Half an hour previous ly his wife had gone upstairs to bed, tired out, yet full of wonder. 'Don't you wait up long-,' she had instructed him. 'You've got to oe astir early in the morning-, and ifj jyou don't get your sleep, you can't do your work proper. j I And old Josliua had grinned at ; her and nodded, and- said: j 'That'li be ail right, Meg.

STARTING WITH DUCKS. SMALL FLOCKS BEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

STARTING WITH DUCKS. SMALL FLOCKS BEST. I It is better to start with about, six ducks, to master the manage ment and then increase the stock, than to start with 50 and try to ''learn the routine of duck management as you go. The feeding and manage ment of ducks cannot bear experi ments, as with hens. Ducks either lay extraordinarily well or badly: Flocks of not more than 30 ducks will give the best egg production; the laying of larger flocks is liable to be| reduced by their bustling each other] anrl getti^? frightened. | The general rule when mating , ducks for breeding purposes is one, drake to three ducks, and breeding stock should h?ve access to a water-! hole in which they can swim, to en-! sure fertility. The best age for stud ducks is two years old, and drakes 1 not younger than 18 months. When handling ducks do not catch them by 1 Vi«» legs or wings, but by the neck. This, however, does not apply to large Muscovy drakes; they are too powerful, and a blow from their I wings i...
