WHAT DOES SPENDING COST? How much does it cost you to spend £100? The answer is £100 down, and at least £4 per annum for the rest of your life. Yet what man would knowingly spend £100 that put him under Obligation ? to pay £4 per year for life? None, perhaps, but many do it unconsciously when they spend money 1 that might otherwise have earned interest at 4% indefinitely. Every pound you spend has attached to it an invisible string of pennies which, you spend with it. KEEP YOUR MONEY IN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT AND EARN, NOT SPEND, 4% INTEREST PER A1WUM GUARANTEED BY THE COMMONWEALTH GOVERNMENT

BLACKMAIL WITH VIOLENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930

BLACKMAIL WITH VIOLENCE. ? ? ' . j 'Racketeering' is America's latest, ?- crime. Really, it -is blackmail with violence. The racketeers started byi preying on other .criminals. They| went, for instance, to bootleggers andj demanded a sum of money not to i attack and destroy their next con-| :;ignment oi illegal liouor. j At first these threats were laughed! at, but the bootleggers soon found ] -hat it was cheaper to pay than toj lose shipment after shipment of their; .sto'-k-ir, -trade. j Now the 'racket' is spreading and j .effecting lawful concerns — milk! firms, cleaners and dyers, even j t'inemas and theatres. Although Americans describe vack-?t*e'ring as a new crime, it has been known in Europe for centuries. . The famous Sicilian secret society, the Mafia, made it a fine art, and1 y Ihat great Scottish 'hero,' Rob Roy! was a past-master at the game. I

WHAT IS SYNECDOCHE? Some Hints on the English Language that will Help You to Enjoy It. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930

WHAT IS SYNECDOCHE ? Some Hints on the English Language that will Help You to Enjoy It. ? t i Every orator of note, whether | on the platform or in the pulpit, makes' use of figures of speech, arad it is a pleasure, when read ing or listening to a fine speech I or sermon, to be able to recog- | nice and name them. j The difference between a meta phor and a simile is interesting, and few people recognise it. . If the j speaker declares that London is the hub of the universe, he s using a; metaphor. But if he says 'London is like the hub round which the wheel of the world turns,' he is em ploying a simile. So you see, a netaphor is much more forceful, al though often not so beautiful. A very common oratorical device for impressing an audience andj rousing their enthusiastc cheers is) the climax. It begins on a low note,! and gets higner and higher with every sentence. You will find many good examples in the Bible and in Shakespeare. Irony is Effective. Take 'Hamlet'- for instance. 'Wh...

THE STORY OF THE BATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930

THE STORY OF THE BATH. Much still remains to be written on the popularity of the bath in the fifteenth century, according to fur ther correspondence in the London 'Sunday Times.' Mr. G. R. Hayes reminds us that Mrs. Henry Cust, in her compilation 'Gentlemen Er rant, quotes tne poetess wara Hatzlerin to the effect that the bath takes precedence of all other plea sures, and adds (presumably on good authority) : — 'If a man had nothing better to do, he wouia order a hot bath and sit in it, perhaps for 24 hours, with his wife or a friend, emp tying a cask of wine.' There was certainly a German proverb in the fifteenth century. 'Do you wish to be merry? Then go to the bath.' I have also read somewhere that onf of the duties of the mediaeval page was to attend the ladies in their baths. There' is no mention of a bath in the elaborate description of the Palace of Apolidon, in the 'Fourth Book of Ariiadis of Gaul'; but this portion was probably written in the late fifteenth century. It has ...

COLORED LINENS. TINTED SHEETS POPULAR. - _ ?

Green and yellow bed linens liavel been in particular demand.

GETTING GOOD COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930

GETTING GOOD COLQR. Fine color in the plumage of fowls does not depend on breeding alone. ;Lice, sickness, and arrested develop ment all show their effect in the color of the adult feathers. An adult black fowl may have its feathers full of purple bars, instead of a green sheen, from being lousy while young. A buff fowl, which was crowded when a' chick,' will often have white in its wings and tail. Care cannot trans-, form a poorly bred chick into a prizewinner; but the lack of care will ruiii the finest chick ever bred.

A FASHION REVIVAL. PRINCESS BODICE AND SHORT SKIRT FOR AUTUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930

A FASHION REVIVAL. ? PRINCESS BODICE AND SHORT, SKIRT FOR AUTUMN. I There is a quaint irony in the . fact that bygone fashions, re 1 cently held up to general ridi cule, will, at the opening of the autumn season, again be imposed, no matter how strongly . women miiy protest. In all matters connected with dress' a revolution is occuring. I JIhe. chief point -of~ difference- is, the definitely . lengthened skirt hem.i With the semi-fitted or fitted bo-- dice designers insist that the short skirt, even though it may eonfomil to the requirements that it cover the' knees, is altogether inappropriate. 1 A conflict of opinions results. Itj is interesting, and not a little am us-1 ing, to learn from authorities abroad that so decided is the opposition of-' fered by Parisian dressmakers to the' ?long skirt that in many instances,1 while apparently assenting to orders.' they have secretly cut and snipped' until a skirt in length to just cover the knees results.

DYSPEPSIA FROM MENTAL CAUSES. ONLY ONE CURE. Many people suffer from diges tive troubles which no form of treatment seems ot cure. A spe cial diet does not relieve their pain. Tbey still have attacks of flatulence accompanied by acute discomfort and loss of appetite. / Their complaint is caused, by anx iety. They are suffering from mental dyspepsia. ; ! Ordinary indigestion is round when the digestive juices fail to assimi late your food, which cannot conse quently nourish yoyr tissues. 'Mental dyspepsia is caused by the presence of ideas which are incom patible with -the rest of your person ality,' writes a doctor. 'They act as an irritant and it- is difficult to digest them as -they form part of your emotional nature. These ideas often consist of unpleasant truths which repeat themselves con tinuously.
