MENDING HOUSE LINEN. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
MENDING HOUSE LINEN. When tile middle portion of a sheet is qluite worn out? the sides. which are tucked in, are generally still whole. If tile strips are wide enough they may be stitched together down the selvages to lmakeo sheets for cots or single beds; or if this cannot be done, use them for making pillow-slips. Eaclh strip will make one slip and the half of another. Pillow-slips are rarely worth mending: like the famous one horse shay," they go to pieces all at once. Counterpanes take a good deal of mend ilug. and if lined with muslin andt ndatly darned will outlive their first freshness for ulanly nonths..

A TAKE DOWN 10 YARDS OF SILK FOR 2s 6d. A FRAUDULENT ADVERTISEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
A TAKE DOWN 10 YARDS OF SILK FOR 2s 6d. A FRAUDULENT ADVERTISE * MENT. Several weeks ago this paper so ceived an advertisement from Sydney, offering to sell 10 yards of silk for 2s 6d, carriage paid. The money was to be sent to the Ceylon Silk Comn pany, Central Chambers, 173 Pitt-st., Sydney. With a view of testing the genu:neness of the transaction we "ap plied the acid" by writing requiring that the advertisement be prepaid. This usually sorts out a fraud-either upon the Press or Public. It did so in this case, as we received no reply; and, needless to say did not insert the advertisement. We therefore protected our numerous readers from being imposed upon. We notice that the advertisement has appeared in several of our contemporaries. The following' summary of the case from "The border Morning Mail," fairly sets out the position:
