FEMININE AFFAIRS REVIEWED THE FASHIONS OF THE MOMENT (All Communications must be Addressed: "'Pomona,' 'Tn« Weekly Times' Office, Melbourne.") gjgEii=- -—prira^gini: New Figiu'o To attain the waistless waistlihe women are wearing a soft kind -of hip "belt, which offers no support above the waist. l&lt;ast season importers could not induce shopkeepers to stock these supports, which in France are known as maillots. Now many of them have lost faith in their judgment. Women are clamoring' for the corset less corset, it appears that the cri ticism which was hurled at our de fenceless heads recently by a visiting" journalist wa^j well merited. She as serted that Melbourne women were out of date so far as their figures were-con cerned, and that modish women in other countries had long" ago recognised the beauty of the classic figure. Illus trations in the French Journals show corsets of elastic, with a large opening in front, so that the abdomen is not compressed. ; A few years ago...
SHOPLAND BUSY LARGE CHRISTMAS TRADE. PUBLIC SPENDS FREELY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
LARGE CHRISTMAS TRADE. PUBLIC SPENDS FREELY. •V !the experiences of cit?; '^hop-keepers who . stocked-'- attractive : "goods for Christmas selling, the public was in kindly mood and bought freely. Only in rare instances did it even count the cost. Surely ^there could hot be a truer indication of prosperous times. "The buying capacity of the com munity has been increasing each, year/' /was an opinion expressed by the manager at one large establish ment; "but it is -many years since; money was circulated so freely. Five, or six years ago it, was only people of Independent means who made a spe ciality of present-giving. Now the custom has become general. - "The self-supporting woman with command of her own purse has made a notable difference. She buys freely. When daughters remained at home, satisfied with board, lodging, clothes, and a few shillings for pocket money they adopted the attitude that it wjis more blessed to receive than give. Now the situation has changed." Jjosing" Favor...

TO MARK SCALLOPS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
TO MARK SCAJjl/OFS xou can very successfully mark scal lops by making- a cardboard guide. Shape a thin piece of cardboard at one end, using- a reel the size you wish the scallop to be to secure a well-shap ed scallop;, then cut in from each edge of the scallop, leaving a long oblong in the centre, so that the carclboard guide can readily be received. Mark one scallop at a time by follow ing the cardboard edge with a pencil. Move the cardboard scallop along the goods until the edge is marked, tben cut the cardboard to fit the wider edge, and mark as before by following the edge with a pencil. In this way you can make any size scallop you wish, and by using a circle as a guide a round edge can be marked without any difficulty.
SEASONABLE HINTS HOT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
SEASONABLE HINTS HOT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS J-anseed boiled for two or three hours to a jelly, and then mixed with soft food, cannot be beaten for growing chicks, whatever age. It promotes good plumage and healthy growth. A hana | fuJ of linseed between 50 chicks or a j dozen fully grown should be given say twice weekly. Drinking water is often a source of great danger. 'Many people think that as long as the birds' troughs are full of water all is well. It would'be almost better if the birds had none at all! Sun-heated water is bad for adult stock j and fatal for young birds. Water pans must be placed in the shade, and if this cannot be obtained naturally, then artificial shade must be arranged. Never add fresh water to stale; what is left from the previous watering must be emptied out. It means more work, but the results will amply justify the extra labor. During a spell of dry weather the usual watering places are apt to be come stagnant or-run out. Your fowls must have pure water, e...
INTERSTATE MATCHES Victoria' v. South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
INTERSTATE MATCHES Victoria' v. South Australia. In order that Sydney cricketers might spend Christmas at home, the South Aus tralians were invited to play Victoria on Boxing Day. This change breaks the historic chain of games—a chain of which the first link was forged in 1865. Since'that distant time the players of Victoria and New South Wales have met at Melbourne December 26. This season they will take the New Year date hitherto givn. to the South Ausralians. Interest in&lt; the Doxing Day game was dis tinctly quickened "by the- South, Australian's victory in Sydney. Our visitors v included many promising colts, with a '"substantial foundation of proved masters. Victoria; wa3 represented by the State's first choice, all the selected players being, able to turn out. This game is the fifty-fifth of the series played'by these two States.. The tally gave Victoria 31 victories and South Australia 23. Ten years ago-the record stood; very greatly in our, favor, with .23 wins to ...

New South Wales v. New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
New South Wales v. New Zealand. At Sydney, on December 26, a game was commenced between the New Zealand players and a very powerful local team." Trumper was delayed and Bardsley tossed in his ab sence. The ground being somewhat heavy the visitors were sent to bat, and two wickets had fallen before a run was scored. One of the pioneers, Sneddon, held on. under de pressing circumstances, six of his comrades making only 15 runs between them. He ultimately put himself out by playing on, and retired with a highly meritorious 44 to credit. After lunch Sajadman and Robinson play sound cricket together, the first-named getting a half-century and three, and re maining unbeaten. Robinson gathered 31, the round producing 161. Kelleway did "the de structive bowling, seven wickets falling to him for 53 runs. Andrews got the last two batsmen at a cost of 6 runs. New South Wales began with Bardsley and Andrews, but the great left-hander was again unfortunate and withdrew for 7. Runs were then free...
SPECIALISING IN BREEDING LAYING TYPE IN LEGHORNS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
SPECIALISING IN BREEDING • LAYING TYPE TN In nothing- more than in poultry is the value shown of breeding to a de finite end, to some one form of produc tion. • The world is not satisfied with the general purpose Shorthorn, and it is right we should breed for beef or milk, just as required. The White Leg horn has (says Mr C. A. Palmer in an English paper) made a great name for itself as a layer in all quarters of the world. We hear much of the Austra lian, the Danish, the American Leg horns. The English-made can hold its own with the best, Mr Palmer con tinued. "I hope that some of our specialists will send birds to contest with . the Australians, and let us see what ours can do in that climate. All this is not because the White Leghorn is the only; STe^t layer; but that it conforms to a type which experience has proved to be. associated with egg production. | Really, all these great laying', strains ; are much alike. There are minor dif ferences, but none of them have great size. R...
Interstate Colta Match [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
Tntf»rsta.t«v Coifs At Sydney on December 31 a game was started between the Colts of New South Wales and Victoria. Warm weather aud a good wic ket made the toss worth winning, and fortune favored the local captain. He sent in Pratten jnd Rix. who opened the batting with mode rate success. The North Melbourne trundler, Hart, had both of them caught, and Lugton.. of Northcote, presently disposed of N. Call away. Up to this stage the visitors had done very well, but the next partnership proved a quite remarkable one. Taylor and the cap- 1 tain, 'Suckle, were the operating batsmen, As they settled down the Victorian bowling was repeatedly changed, but scoring continued until the total had been improved by 100 runs. Without fatigue, without even the ap pearance of effort, another hundred runs, and yet another went up, while the Victorian skipper, Willis, rang his bowling changes. ■It was not until" eight trun tilers had tried to break .the stand that N. Brown managed to bowl Bucklfe. Tog...
POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
By "UTILITY" This is a 'suitable time for reducing flocks. Laying- birds have begun to ease off, and those that have finished laying- may be weeded out. Some poultrymen argue that it is better to keep adult birds culled from the main flock until . after they have moulted and are in good sale able condition. But my experi ence is that when prices are - as high 'as at present, the time to sell has arrived. In December and January, •consumption is high, and the demand is good for hens in fair condition, and not too old. In the hands of compe tent cooks a second season fowl can ,be made into a toothsome dish as a boiler. By selling the culls at this time, over crowding is obviated, and the expense of feeding is cut down. Both of these points are important. Where a good number of early hatched pullets are available for egg-production during next season, the culling should be fairly extensive. A bird gives the biggest profit in her first season.. It is obvious, therefore, that freely cull...
