USEFUL HINTS Cheap Floor Stains. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
USEFUL HINTS Cheap Floor Stains. j Floors pan be satisfactorily stained by the amateur at much less than 1 / ijjer room. Oil stains or water stains ;i?iay be chosen. The oil stain is per manent, whereas the water staih hap to be removed from time to time. Creosote is a satisfactory oil stain. But- before, applying it to the floor, i - see that the boards are quite clean. All .traces of paint and plaster should be . removed. If a varnish ;stain; has been used previously, ' it must : be removed with strong hot fcoda water to allow the wood to ap TSoriij the creosote. Apply the creo sote freely, but handle the brush iarefully to avoid splashing. One coat as enough, but it will take several -jjiay4;So dry properly.

IF BEAUTY IS SKIN DEEP. COMPLEXIONS SHOULD BE KEPT BLEMISH FREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
IF BEAUTY IS SKIN DEEP. COMPLEXIONS SHOULD BE KEPTj BLEMISH FREE. ] i If beauty is only skin deep, a good .skin is one -of its first essentials. j ' However regular a girl's features niay be, she loses most of her attrac.-' tiveness if her complexion is not all it should be; the possessor of lovely, skin will always be admired. j Good health'', is Hie roundation for skin beauty. More bid complexions are the '^result of indigestion than most people imagine. -! While some lucky people can eat almost anything with no bad effects,] others quickly fall victims to the ' beauty-killing malady. j It is hard to have to deny your-i self those delicious, creamy, rich pastries, but if their consumption is reflected on yur face by a shiny, reddened nose or other skin blem ishes it is worth your while to es-'i chew theqi. A dull, muddy skin indicates the need for something to purify- the blood. An excellent remedy will be found in a cup of camomile tea taken! every mora i ng i ef ore breakfast. I...
AND THE HAT CAME BACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
AND THE HAT CAME BACK. Since modern industrial chemistry has turned its attention to. the 'top- per' and the 'c£dy,' it's a wise than who knows his own hat. Once was a time When a liat was a hat throughout its career. It was a hat from the moment the hatter ut tered his historic .line, -'Very becom ing, sir; you only think it lo6ks odd because you .haven't been; wearing this style,' to the moment the 'lady uttered her .historic line, 'I shall -not go out with you if you insist oh wear ing that old thing.'. It continued to be a hat when it reached' the city dump where its. career ended, still a hat. ? . But now the hat has taken on some of the attributes of the cat.- It £on I tinues to come back, yea, even .unto , | the ninth generation. That old ?

SMART STYLES CONTINUE VOGUE IN1WCATE WAIST AND HEM TREATMENT. more fanciful, elaborated form, the jumper will, this season, be displaced in general favor by tbe quite new, yet very old, tuck in at the waist blouse. The jumper, however, will continue in vogue, but will be remark able; for an extreme severity by no means lacking in charm and at ' traction. Many women will refuse to transfer allegiance from the iumoer to .the blouse on up-to-date lines, for the simple reason that the blouse, . semi-fitted and with shor t waist, too clearly reveals the con tour of . the figure lacking youthful slenderness and grace. ^ The abrupt . breaking of the It ne necessitated by a blouse caught closely at the normal waist proves decidedly unbecoming if hip measurements are large; a charge which may not be brought against an expertly cut, straight jumper slightly bloused above a wide hem band, finished at the high, left side hip.

ONE CAUSE OF FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
ONE CAUSE OF FAILURE. The cause of many failures in poultry farming . is that the beginner must conduct the busintess without guidance, and* many people have not got this qualification. The 'majority! of the people -in the world are ivork-j ers, very few run successful busi nesses. - i Most beginners must follow othej peoples methods and therefore, if they are fortunate enough to have plenty of common sense it-is' a valuable asset. Success .takes time, but common sense, combined with a love of outdoor life, some knowledge of how fowls should be cared ''for; and a good, but not necessarily ex pensive plant, should enable a be ginner to keep poultry profitably.
GLOVES—GREEN AND RED. STRIKING AND NOVEL TONINGS [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
GLOVES-GREEN AND RED. STRIKING AND NOVEL TONINGSi ! ? i Gloves are destined to becomc a ] very expressive item of the toil -ette if the more daring of Pari sian designers are to have tbeir way. Some few of us will admit remembering the time when a glove was a glove, and little else. Not then had it taken to itself fanciful, trimmings in co lors intricately intermingled in floral, cube, and similar forms. When these appeared on the backs and turn-over cuffs of gloves of all( descriptions, it was generally sup posed by those who gave the matter a thought that the limit in- the matter of elaboration was reached. Not so, however! j Gloves, more audacious yet singu-' larly attractive in general effect, will be launched in the early autumn or late winter. In exquisitely soft sup ple kid, in saturated all-over one tone, gloves, red, emerald, green, and in the new shade known as dahlia, not to mention the innumerable tonings in between, will be offered for the approbation of those women who...

THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
THE BOOK LOVER j The' exhibition at the First Edi tion Club of a collection of Cruik shaftk illustrations made by Mr. 'A. M. Cohn, a Londoii solicitor, has aroused much interest. Cruikshank's first book illustration was done in 1806, and his best work was done be fore 1847. the vear in which he he came a teetotaller, and from that time, according to Mr. A. J. Symes. the secretary of the club, his work began to deteriorate. Ths collet-.tion includes an autograph letter, without address and dated October 11, 1839, to Harrison Ainsworth, with whom' Cruikshank was cpllaborating at the' time with illustrations for 'The1 Tower of London.' In the same! way the artist claimed that the whole j idea of 'Oliver Twist' was his. Thisi claim is regarded by the best autho rities as absurd, but Mr. Symons says' there is probably a substratum of truth in it. 'No doubt Cruikshank had for years been thinking about writing a book on the Tower of. London,' he said, 'and while he col laborated with Dicke...

SIMPLE REMEDIES. PALLIATIVE FOR TOOTHACHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
SIMPLE REMEDIES. PALLIATIVE FOR TOOTHACHE. — ? ?! 3 Although temporary relief of J toothache whfen^ 'the -.dentist is not : available may b4 sec ired by simple remedies, it is essential to apply the palliative with due heed to, the na ture of the pain. If the pain is intensely agonising, i sharp and shooting, it is due to in^ flahim^tion of the pulp of the. tooth a fleshy substance containing both' blood vessel's and nerve fibres. It forms the innermost core of a tooth* j and when iexposed through decay of ' the outer enamel and dentine it be- j comes inflamed. j The pain usually begins suddenly,; and just as suddenly stops. 1 It often: returns at meals when a piece' of fo.od is jammed into, the tooth cavity, li It is. the kind of pain that ensues] when the enamel of a tooth has been'' worn through by the hook support of a denture. To aleviate this kind of toochache' the cavity should be plugged with a piece of cotton wool., dipiped in pure i oil of cloves. A different kind of tooth...
BOOK REVIEW AN EXPLOSION. The God Who Didn't Laugh, by Gieb Botkin, Gollancz. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
BOOK REVIEW ' AN EXPLOSION. The God. Who Didn't Laugh, by Glebl Botkin-. Gollancz. j I Although the publishers do not seem to know it, the statements they ! print on the dust-covers of books, particularly novels, often do more to prejudice than invite the reader. I They aren as a rule, either summaries | of the story that turn but to be in accurate. or estimations that prove to be unjustified. ) But in; the present case the pub I lishers i^j^et -the demand for informa ition about the author, and this in | formation made me determined to t read the book at all costs. A Russian i who - writes in English, whose father I was attached to the household of i the Tsar and who died with Tiim at j -2katerinberg, who joined the White j Guards, 'fought in several campaigns ! against the Revolution, arid who emi ! grated to the United States on the ' final collapse of the civil war in Russia. 1 Here, at last, I thought, I shall get an insight into the mind of a convinced reactionary. The man ; c...
DAYTIME REST. ESSENTIAL FOR ALL CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 February 1930
DAYTIME REST. ESSENTIAL FOR ALL CHILDREN Your child's night rest depends, largely upon how he has spent the day. An exciting day, without a nap, may leave a child ^literally, too tired to sleep. Especially should the end of the day be frea from excite ment. The half-hour before bedtime should be devoted to quiet pleasures, . without romping, exciting games or stories, o ranv activities that are sti mulating- t Proper rest in the daytime helps to give the child a good night sleep. The young baby gets plenty oi day and night sleep. As he grows older his^. waking hours are . longer, and the T another should see that his main sleep.„r fs at night ,and that he gets also two r daytime naps, a long one in the mov ing and a short one in the early af- # temoofi. As a rule by the seenndv year only one nap need be taken in the daytime — a long one, at what- *C ever time of the day is most conven- %? ient for the mother, such as 10 or ^ 11 in the morning or after the mid- fr day meal. In winter...
