WHITE ANTS METHOD OF ERADICATION. THE FUMIGATING SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
METHOD OF ERADICATION. THE FUMIGATING SYSTEM. "White ants are often troublesome iii orchards and gardens. They may be effectively eradicated (states an authority)' by fumigating their haunts with hydrocyanic acid gas. Insects of the family Termitidae, the . family to which the "white ants" belong, feed on wood and dead vegetable matter, and live socially in mixed colonies of sterile and fertile'individuals. The term "white ants," by which these in sects are known, is entirely inappro priate, insofar as it appears to indi cate relationship with the true ants. They are not ants, but belong to the order Isoptera, being closely allied to the book-lice. The popular acquaint ance with the termite is derived from seeing it on its nuptial flight when the small, brown winged insects emerge from crevices in buildings and ground. These are the colonising forms, and not tne forms that actu ally do the damage, for the depreda tors are the soft-oodied, large-headed, milky white soldiers and worke...

The Coiffure [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
The Coiffure Notwithstanding the fact that in all illustrations of the latest modes, mod els favor the pompadour sts'le of coif fure, hairdressers here shake their heads and declare that the time is not yet ripe. - Tlie Melbourne woman at the pres ent time is too enamored of the clas sical knot, and the hair waved softly over the brow, to desert it for a dres sing which for success depends on a certain refin-s-nent of :eat iro, ■ an-1 an unfurrowed forehead. The butterfly type of women who wear frilly clothes and fluffy hair scorn the mere sugges tion of the innovation, but she who favors the intellectual cult is viewing the advent of the pompadour dressing with eyes gladsome and expectant. Regarding another new coiffure a JParisienne gives this description:—"It i shows the hair waved and drawn back from the forehead, and well up froiti ! : the nape of the neck, the only loose coils or curls being those which hang j In front of the eais. It owes its inspir ation to pictures of ladie...

CONSERVATORY AND POT FLiANTS Hardy ferns can scarcely be watered too heavily if the drainage is good. Fuchsias and heliotropes can also make use of large quantities of water. The only thing to fear is. stagnation of water in the soil. Free drainage will prevent it. Maidenhair ferns must be watered sparingly, and at regular' in tervals. Basket plants should he im mersed in a barrel of water for a few minutes once a fortnight in very hot weather. That is necessary to ensure a thorough soaking of the whole ball of earth.

Those who' have not sown the seeds ■ of cineraria, calceolaria, and primula should do so immediately.

About the temples or in the parting is the favorite place for the "setting. The fashion for powdering the hair is also on the increase, so women .need no longer sigh and lament on dis covering the first grey hair, Madame Lucile, whose frocks are' always described as "creations," is en deavoring to maintain the idea that the hair should accord with the color scheme of the dress. To achieve this, she has secured purple, blue, and even! green wigs to harmonise with the color tints of some of her special gowns..

The j doctor made me wean my child as he i said that I had abscesses on my liver j and that I would have to have them j cut out. I was in the hospital at the i time. The doctor told me to take my baby home and come back again. I j had about IS miles to travel by coach, ; and some kind woman in the coach j told me of Warner's Safe Cure.
