COLD MAKES THE HAIR GROW. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914
COLD MAKES THE HAIR GROW, It is a curious fact that a low tenm peraturo is tho best possible tonic for theo hair. No explorer has over come home from thile A;ctio or Antaretio without a thick thatch. Sir Ernest Shackleton has drawn public attention to the fact that several of the men who accompanied him to the South startedl with thin and scanty hair andi returned like testimonials of patent hair tonics. He attributed the result to the lack of germs in frozen regions, a lack which also explains why explorers in the Arc tio or Antarctio do not catch colds. Precisely the same effect has been no ticed among men whoso work lies in cold storage rooms. The air they work in is always below freezing point, and a di rector of a cold-storago firm recently announced that, from what he has seeoon among his employes, it would scarcely be an exaggoration to say that a freez ing temperature will make an egg sprout like a shaving brush. Men af flicted with early baldness grow a nor mal crop of hair...

To the Editor. Sir,-Councillors who voted against the proposed St. George's road trams are to be codmmnnended on saving the ratepayors the burden of a white ele phant, We hear about asking certain coun. cillors to resign, having lost the confid ence of the ratepayors. No doubt they have gained moro confidence than lost, as this is not a ward question, as the whole town would be alfected, It is a good thing to see we have gentlemen in the council with backbone enough to withstand pressure.-Yours, &e., JoHN BULSIEH,
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. A cut lemon rubbed on the forehead will cure a severe hoeadauche, If you mix a little commaon baking suda with the bathbrick you will find the knives will clchh much easier. If a lamp wick is getting short, sew a pieco of flannel to the end of it. This will be found to be as good as a new wick. To remove the mark of a scorch, weot whatever is scorched with cold water and place it in the sun, When dry, the mark will have disappeared. VWhen buying apples pick the heavi. cat also test the fruit by seeing if, when pressed with the thumib, it yields a slight cracking sound. Brown boots and shoaes should be rub bed over with a slice of raw potato be fore the polish is applied. Tluis cleans and removes the stains quite easily. Films on %tarch can be avoided by making the starch in the usual way, add ing half a teaspoonful of salt. and ceoring with a thick cloth to pre v'ont s~eamn from escaping. When steaming potatoes put a cloth over them before putting the lid on. They ...

OBOE PLAYERS GET CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914
OBOE PLAYERS GET CONSUMPTION, Although of harmless appearance, the oboo is the most deadly musical instru. menat in the world, fos it literally kills thoso who play upon it. To play an oboo perfectly a musician must place the reed mouthpiece far back in his mouth until it reaches the gullet, and playing in this fashion is most harmful to the lungs. After two years of oboo-playing nine out of ten musicians give up their in strument and learn to play another. If they do not they are practically certain to develop consumlntion -with fatal re sults. Olbqo players command high sal aries, as few of them care to run so great a risk.
PRESTON MUNICIPAL QUARRY. WHICH POWER SHALL DRIVE IT. COUNCIL GO FOR STEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914
PRESTON MUNICIPAL QUARRY. N WiHICHI POWER SIIAIL DRIVE IT. COUNCIL GO FOR STEAM. At tlhe meeting of the Preston coun- P iil on Monday evening Cr, Braithwaite v said he thought it was time the council tl definitely made up its 'mind as to the ( power to be used to drive the quarry t machinery. Iie regretted they had not c been guided in the first instance by Mr. Wilding, who had recommended the spending of £500 on a steam plant, pointing out that it could be sold at very slight loss in case they afterwards decl- t ded to go in for electricity. It looked t as if the getting of electric power into the municipality was still some months off, and they must have some power to drive the crusher without delay. If they waited for electricity another win ter would be past, He might also say I that from enquiries made electricity 1 would be much more costly, Person ally he was tired of this dilatory policy 1 of always evading coming to the point. lie (Cr. Braithwaite) thought they should erect...
