Prince of Wales TO VISIT BUNBURY, It- has been announced that the Prince of Wales will visit Australia in 'May, 1920.

Another Amalgamation. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
Another imalgamation. We have recently been advised of an amalgamation in the city of Perth of the two old established legal prac tices of Messrs Stone & Burt and Messrs* Leake, Tames, and Co, and we have to announce a similar hap pening in the country. The practic es of Messrs Stanely Money & Bath and that of Mr KM Eastman will be amalgamated on the 1st September 1919, and will in future be carried on under the name of 'Money, Bath and Eastman'. The experience of mod ern commercial undertakings has been that amalgamation tends to greater efficiency and improved organisation. With these aims in view, the two well known firms have been consolidated. The practice now carried on by Messrs Stanley Money and Bath has been in exist ence for upwards of thirty years, and Mr Eastman has been practising. in Bunbury for the last twenty two years. The members of the new firm are very well known throughout the whole of the South West district, and, as Mr Money's time is consid er...

The Care of the Hair. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
The Care of the Hair. Nothing repays a little care and trouble so much as hair, and nothing resents neglect more quickly. One might almost say, 'Take care of your hair and your looks will take care of themselves.' Glossy, -well-kept hair is so attractive that it makes one forget any minor deficiencies, and it is worth any trouble to have such hair. If you are already the possessor of luxuriant beautiful hair, don't imagine it* will always bo like that unless you take the trouble to keep it so. On the other hand if your hair is weak and lustreless, don't despair, for if you adopt natural me thods, you will improve' it almost be yond recognition. What Scalp Massage Does. Personally, I have the firmest faith in massaging the hair, not only to keep healthy hair in good condition, but to stop hair falling out, and to -give it back its colour if it has that 'lifeless' look. Massage your hair every day for just three -#inutes (no longer). Never message it at night or when you are feeling t...
HOME-MADE COUGH DROPS. A Recipe Mothers Should Keep. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
HOME-MADE CpUGH DROPS. A Recipe Mothers Should Keep. Cough drops suitable for both child r.en stnd adults can easily and quickly be prepared at home by pouring a few drops of bitrate of tar on a lump of sugar. Let~this dissolve slowly in the mouth, and as it dissolves so the healing and soothing virtues of the pine tar will penetrate to every part of the throat, chest, and lungs. Bitrate of tar is useful in many different ailments, and it is no won der chemists are experiencing diffi culty in meeting the demand. Half a teaspoonful poured into a bowl of boiling water produces a healing vapour which, when inhaled, gives relief in cases of cold in the head, bronchitis, asthma, /etc., while it is well known that 2dz. of bitrate of tar, 8oz. of sugar, and half-pint of hot water produce nearly a pint of cough syrup superior to the read-made mix tures composed of harmful drugs, and at less cost. Make a . syrup by dis solving the sugar in the hot water, and then add the bitrate of tar. Stir...
DANGEROUS TOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
DANGEBOUS TOYS. 3 A well-known doctor warns parents against toys covered with hair or wool for, babies. He says: 'Infants have often been severely injured by swallow ing what they have pulled off from their small tov animals.' Never give painted toys to very little children. They often suck the paint off. And celluloid toys . are very dan gerous, as, if used near a fire or light, they easily blaze up. Very small toys — such as tiny tea sets— are dangerous for very little child ren, who often put them into their mouths. Beads, buttons, etc., have the same risk, as they inay be pushed into ears or up little noses. Toys with very sharp corners are always risky playthings; so are whips and. sticks. '
SCRUB AND OTHER BULLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
SCRUB AND OTHER BULLS. Wisconsin is the foremost dairy State of U.S.A., a position it has largely obtained by the encouragement of ag ricultural education and the practical application of the knowledge thus dif fused among its people. Dr. Alexan der, Director of the Wisconsin De partment of Agriculture, has taken the trouble to condense a deal of know ledge, acquired in the right school of theory and practice, into a few, 'points' regarding scrub and other'' bulls. Dr. Alexander evidently be lieves that the bull is nine-tenths of the herd. Here is his classification of the various types of bull: — The Scrub Bull. Brand him 'N.6.' Sire of scrubs. Notorious cause of puny creamery cheques. ? Supplier of filling for the worst bullwurst. Furnisher of the canner's 'sinews of war.' Trade mark of ignorance and profitless stock breeding. Let him be spurloss ver senkt! The Grade Bull. Brand him ' . . ? ' Sire of mongrels. Inheritor of skin-deep beauty from his pure-bred sire. Powerless to tra...
TEACHING THE YOUNG IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
TEACHING THE YOUNG IDEA. Mildura has adopted in its schools an , excellent American idea. The scholars who desire it are given courses in horticulture and viticulture. In the high school, attended by over 200 pupils, is a large .plot of vines of different varieties for the practical in struction in grape growing for the pro duction of dried fruit. ? In every State school, too, the child ren are taught the growing and drying of'' fruits. The head master of the Lake school, who possesses an exten: sive knowledge of grape culture and drying, teaches his pupils the whole process in a most thorough manner. The children have planted an acre block with different varieties of raisin grapes, which last season they harvest ed and dried ready for the picking shed, having attended ' to the vines throughout, pruning ' and so forth. This season they hope to produce over a ton of dried fruit. They also grow and preserve peaches, apricots and quinces. Ask anyone, of the -boys what he's going to be ...
