SKYSCRAPER MADE OF GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 3 September 1914

SKYSCRAPER MADE OF GLASS. The latest wonder in New York is a sealed skyscraper which, when com pleted, will be 78 per cent, glass, yet in the building there will be no win dows that may be opened. The en tire, twelve storeys will he tight as a drum, the glass walls being set in steel framework. There will be plenty of ventilation, however, and abun dance of fresh air the year round sup piled at an even temperature by a new ventilating system. In ..cold -weather the fresh atmos phere sucked in from without will be heated; when the summer comes !t will be cooled. At all seasons of the year it will be free from disease breeding germs, being carefully puri fied. The ventilating system is unique in its thoroughness. Air is sucked in through a special duct on the second floor, because air at this altitude fcas been found to be less impure than at greater heights. The air passes through "shower" chambers, whero the impurities are washed out of it after the manner of a rain-shower. At each ...

HOW TO-BE POPULAR. Bo a good listener. Always be ready, to lend a hand; Never monopolise the conversation. Take a genuine'interest in other people. Tke pains to remember names and faces. Look for the good in others, not for their faults. Forgive and forget injuries, but never forget benefits.. Rejoice as genuinely in another's success as in your own. Have a kind word ami a cheery, en couraging smile for every one. I.earn to control yourself under the most trying circumstances. Don't get into the habit of doing lit tle duties that should he done by other people. It isn't quite fair to the'.n. In this life everyone ought to do their own work if they'are to arrow as they should. li is a poor sort of lovcjjmd courtesy thai showers itself on outsiders arid has none left for the home people.

BEAUTY FOR ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 3 September 1914

BEAUTY FOR ALL. Ladies, this is a special article for you. Of course you wish to be pretty —you would not be a woman if you did not. But it may be you object to the use of cosmetics. All men don't like the taste of face-powder, and many prefer to see these aids to beauty confined to the ladies of the stage. Besides, to use cosmetics.pro perly is an art, and you may hot un derstand how to apply that delicate make-up which adds so much to the appearance of the woman who is past j the first bloom of youth. Nevertheless, we thinlc you will 'be interested in the latest beauty hint, which introduces a principle in cos metics which you may have never tried; for there is a way to use rouge which is warranted to be free from all objections, and Is given on the au thority of a medical journal of re pute. First go to any respectable drug gist or chemist, and ask for rouge of good quality. It need nqjt be ex pensive—jusc good rouge, applied, not with a. bit of chamois or rag, 'but with a rabbit...

WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 3 September 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. Xo moment in a woman's life is quite so difficult, as that in which she moots her .son's future wife for the first time. Perhaps the moment is nl mo t as difficult for the fiancee, but she possesses the glorious soK-f.onii iienec of wnitii, ami cannot quite grasp (lie view-point of the woman who knows that, the marriage of her son means her loss, but his gain. A moth er rarely loses the love and friendship of a daughter who marries, but when ■i son weds she instinctively commits one or two possible grave errors—site 'ri'ate:; her daughter-in-law by medd ling in the affairs of the new little house, or. in her anxiety not to seem interfering, she stands aloof and ap •ie:ir.i indifferent. file tore" of convention makes it part i-• n 1 ;• rly difficult for a woman to play successfully her role of mother in-law.

THE CIGAR CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 3 September 1914

THE CIGAR CHAMPION. What is believed to be a world re cord has just been set up at a congress of South German smokers, held at Frankfort. A :■ pecial trophy, consisting of a sil ver eagle on a red and white ribbon, was offered to the smoker who took the longest time to turn a Mexican t-ip■'!r into srey-wliite ash without let-' timv it once go out. The competition K't-'-nn at eleven o'clock, and very near ly L'fiO people contested for the award: I'.y twelve o'clock only twenty compe titors were in (he running—the rest had reinetfully finished their "weeds" or had laid them at rest in the ash tray for too Ion The rhals dropped out rapidly, and by one o'clock only one smoker was | Iefl - Hen- lien/., a Sachsenbam-en business man, who actually p.iffed away in peace until lie perforce had to throw his diminutive cigar-stump away --two hours forty-six minutes and se venteen seconds after he had set lii-'ht to it.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 3 September 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. If when frying, fish of any kind a little salt is sprinkled on the bottom of the pan when It is hot and tho fat boiling, the fish can be easily turned without breaking in the least. Cut flowers will remain fresh long er. if the stems are cut with a sharp knife instead of a pair of scissors. The latter compresses the stems and pre vents the water from reaching the top. . , Before frying bacon it is a good plan to put the rashers into boiling water for two-'or three minutes. They plump out to twice their ordinary thickness, and all chance is removed of their being too salt. Stains on white flannel can some-] times be removed by rubbing them with glycerine and yolk of egg mixed in' equal quantities. Spread on the stain, leave for half an hour, then wash the garment as usual. Two drops of camphor on your toothbrush will give your mouth the freshest, cleanest feeling imaginable, and will make your gums rosy and ab solutely prevent anything , like cold sores or affection...

SEEING FOR TWO HUNDRED MILES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 3 September 1914

SEEING r0R TWO HUNDRED MILES. Contrary to the funeral bo'ief that t'10 heliograph is an instrument for UnalliiiK short distances, it has been 'i.sfd .successful!.- over a d:stan e as '.Teat, as seventy niilen. Du: this ne cessarily was on an exceptionally -li rir day with an intense sunlight. This instrument, which for more than half a century lias been found of benefit in Army tactics, is destined fi) pass in the near future to oblivion, ■is the result of the 'invasion of the wireless telegraph. The heliograph is nothing more than a mirror, 011 which the sun's rays arc caught and by which they are re jected. The flashes can be thrown in any desired direction, and the tele graphic Morse code generally is used. The distance at which flashes from the heliograph and other objects can he discerned by the eye depends upon two things—the height and the clear ness of the air. The most conspicuous object in the British Isles is Mount Snowdon, in Wales, which on a clear day can be distinctly...
