AFTER SWIMMING. COMPLEXION TREATMENT. AFTER the skin has been 1 subjected to the effects of fierce suit, salt water, isea air, or any ?- other hot weather condition, it needs cl^knstnv anJ ntiurUliinff if it is to regain its former clear beauty. First, see to the pores. If they are enlarged, and if blackheads are dotted here and there,- cover the affected parts of the face with strips of soft flannel wrung out of hot olive oil, and leave on for as many minuter, as the oil remains warm. At the end of this time, gently press out the blackheads, wring a cloth in cold water, to which a few drops of spirits of camphor have been added, and sponge the face. This will remove any visible trace of the oil and close the pores again. Any discoloration 01 ine SKin 01 the f-.ce, neck, and arms should now be bleached out. For the face, take equal parts of olive oil and sour milk, and two drops of simple tinc ture of benzoin to each ounce of the liquid, ?nd blend thoroughly. Ap plied sparingly last...

Borers in Furniture. The presence of many holes in the timber of a piece of furniture is not necessarily an -indication that borers [are still in the interior, but the per-| iodical appearance of fresh holes, I from which white dust appears when] the wood is tapped, is a definite indi cation that these pests are present.'

The Age of Smoke. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
fte Age of Smoke. Tobacconists should be prosperous people. It was recently stated that the smokers of this' country disposed of 38,293,999,560' cigarettes last year. And -this year, if the present rate of increase is maintained, we snaii smoKe: over 8,000,000 lb. more tobacco than we did in 1928. Most of the increase is. of course, due to the growth of the ? cigarette - nabit among women. But there is no need to be alarmed at the amount of - our consumption. Last year's figure works out at less than three Per day -. per head of popu lation. And no one ever smokes the Whole of: a cigarette.

1HE PSYCHOLOGY OF LYING. I ; THE CHILDISH IMAGINATION. - Someone, once said that there were more people -who innocently told what was not . the truth than there were people, who deliberately con cocted malicious lies.

BEAUTIFUL HANDS.

THE TWO TONE SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
THE TWO-TONE SCHEME. Where the question of effective dressing, at not too considerable out-' lay, us concerned, acquaintance with] certain broad rules will prove of in-! valuable assistance in determining the- style of the toilette. j colour, ai tne moment, tnreatensj of overwhelm. Exotically beautiful as many of the new tonings are, dis-! crimination in the matter of employ ment is imperatively necessary. \ Ensembles, distinguished both in line and 'workmanship, may feature a gay one-tone fabric and meet with universal admiration; but the toilette evolved in material in sombre shade allied with fabric designed to en liven ouite frequently succeeds in depressing an artistic spirit, ft is not that fault may be found with either one of t'-e two tones em ployed. The method of arrangement is to blame. Instead of utilising colour boldly, daringly, in one single form against a background to con trast. a patchwork effect results, from an all-over disposal of small inlets, pipings, and band...

; SCIENCE SCORES AGAIN. One by, One the 'Killing' Diseases, are being Conquered. The Latest ' Latest to Lose its Terrors is Pernicious Anaemia, which has been Forced to Yield to a Very Simple Remedy. A few years ago I dined in London with a distant relative. ' He looked well, but 1 was horri- ' j fied- to- hear from him that he had: suffered, six -months before, ',! from an attack of 'pernicious- ij anaemia.' j He pronounced the words quite j cheerfully, as one might have ; ? 1 ? „t ? ? i:.- ? r i i , : a^un.^ii U1 d V.UJIU1 LlUn or DIUUQ lessness.

THE SKULL A True Incident* of 45 Years Ago, by South Australia's Grand* Old Man of the Labor Movement A. A. ARNOLD. Forty-five years .since iti was decided ,to form a branch- of an - important Order in the North. It was needful for initiations' that a skull and cross- bones should be procured, .but : none of ' the prospective members' could learn where they could be- ob* tained, when it was privately j had been burled in . the scrub long before the township was made, and if the matter was worked properly a skull might - i be obtained. [ Five stalwart men bound them selves together by secret 'bond to take part in the adventure. A num ber of meetings were held, when each member spoke of his wonderful courage and bravery in time of trial. It was decided that' the first week in November, when , the moon was at its quarter, was the time for action. Later they found that another per son had obtained private information of the matter; so they had to take him; but not before they told him h...
THE LINOLEUMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 February 1930
THE LINOLEUMS. As floor coveiings, .linoleums are more attractive than ever. The newer patterns are large and rathe* bizarre looking. Colour combina tions are good. There are many futuristic des.erns. like the crazy patchwork ' patterns grandmother used to make in bed quilts. Many patterns imitate stone Sagging, and some are like tiled, floors, brick floors or mosaics. They resemble less wall paper designs and look more like something to walk on. Lacquered linoleums are some thing new. .They ate finished with a hard, jrlossy. varnish, and are easy to keep clean. Inlaid linoleums are the more expensive. The pattern goes clear through, and there is no printing to ' wear off ? in ? spots. A heavy piece of inlaid linoleum shou.d stand hard usage for years, and look well as long as it is doing it. It has a waxed surface, arid shows the -dirt ? more easily than the varnished lino leums, and it requires rewaxing from time to time, but it is a good looking, and durable linoleum. i Do not us...
