HINTS TO REMEMBER. Restoring Colors Taken Out by. Acids.-Mfany people consider a garmen useless when the colors have been taken out by acids, but these colors may be restored by sal volatile or hartshorn.

FOURTH DAY'S PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
FOtIRTlH DAY'S PLAY'. A, few light showers fell in the morning, but the .thirsty pitch mopped up the mois ture as if it were blotting paper. The gal lant stand by _Park and Armstrong had attracted quite a record attendance for an off day, with the temperature veering about 100 deg. It was recognised that Vic toria had a chance if the pair could .oily add another hundred for the partnership, and in the 90 minutes before lunch they almost realised the desideratum by putting together 094 by splendid cricket. Park was dismissed immediately after lunch, after paving the way to a splendid win, but the real merit of the magnificent victory must, in common fairness be as cribed to. the winderful: all-round -ability of Warwick Armstrorig, who resembles the great W.". G. Grace ~nore than : George Giffen ever did, both in physique, style and safety of play, and in the additional like ness of both being leg break bowlers.

The wicket being unimpaired, the Victorians started well by dismissing two of the opposing batsmen for only four runs, but when Don Steele and Kirkwood put on over a hundred for. he eighth wicket, the scales went down with a bump -against Victoria. A middling success after lunch left the home .team 352 runs to get, and the South Australians were almost secured of success. The Victorians opened only fairly well, but a stolid, determined inn ings by young Park and an almost equally praiseworthy effort by that "near side poler," Armstrong, 'brought victory with in measirable distance. The play for the day was again without remarkable incident, but the attendance of nearly 6000 persons ...

THE CRAZE FOR AMUSEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
THE CRAZE FOR AMUSEMENT. "Life does not amuse people so much as it did." Many a true saying is met with in a story book. This is one from a novel of to-day. It sets one thinking. "LIfe does not amuse people as much as it d'd. In time fthe only things that will amuse people will be amusements." W'hat a sad state of things! It is cer tanly a confession df failure. How does it come about? The uestion is not a very easy one to answer, .but the proofs of it are as obvious as daylight; tihey are a matter of every day experience. We have only to look at the hundreds and thousands of pe6ple° who leave their homes every, night in search of amusement. They go to exhibitione, cinematograiph shows, theatres, concerts, musio halls, anywhere, everywhere, in search of amiusment. And aIl" day it is much the same.

MODERN ENTERTAINMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
! MODERN ENTERTAINMENTS. :.Society entertainments are curiously like stocks and shares, inasmuch as they rise and fall in value at different tinies, and for no very definite reason. Afternoon parties are a case in point. " They were for some time voted dull and dowdy, but are now considered smart and amusing. Tango teas are a fancy of the moment, and bridge teas are frequent. Good music is often given in the afterinoon, and sodm hostesses go in for fortune telling and other occult mysteries. Such parties as these are ar ranged without beat of drum, and in a free and informal manner. Invitations take the form of visiting cards, witn toe name of the guest and the hour written on them, or else they are given verbally or by tele phone. In some large houses tables are set in the second drawingroom, instead of in the diningrooin, and in this way the guests are kept more together. The tea itself has become more solid thai of yore, and one often finds such dishes as ham' toast, poached eggs...

The discusison was'inaugurated by Miss' Goldstein reading an article pub lished in July, 1911, over the signature o: Emmaline P. Lawrence, a suffragette, it Great Britain. Mrs. Lawrence set out by saying that many of the customs and laws of Great Britain were founded upon the popular conception that a married woman was supported by her wage-earning husband. She declared this theory to be "one of the grossest economic fallacies ever ut `tered." -The economic system of Greal Britain and.other civilised countries was said to be built up on the unpaid and grossly exploited labor of married women, who effect, as a matter of actual fact, a gigantic saving of the wealth both of the employer and of the State.

BY A MERE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
BY A MERE MAN. It is an irritating amusement which the ladies of -the W.P.A. have provided the benedicts of 'Melbourne in denying that our married women are supported by their husbands. Their main proposition is as follows:-"The wage-earning man works a limited number of hours and receives a cash return for his labor. The wife of the wage-earning man works an unlimited num ber of hours and receives no cash 'return from anybody." Ergo, the wife of the wage-earning man (most men are wage earners) is an early Christian martyr; and the wage-earning man is a heartless slave driver and a monster of iniquity. "There is no wife on earth," said one of the speak ers, "who did not more than earn her liv ing." Another said, "The husbands are lacking in honor. No man dare say he keeps his wife. He does. nothing of: the kind. He may keep an establishment." Gee! but these female orators know how to dress facts. Women are saints, men are devils. Humph! We men, it seems, are parasites living on the ...
