LUCKY NIGHTS. It is Largely Accident That Has Made Gaslight What it is Today. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

LUCKY NIGHTS.. It is Largely Accident That Has I Made Gaslight What it j is Today. i When Murdoch, the pioneer and j inventor of gas for lighting, j first discovered the possibility I of using his new product to pro- j vide illumination he simply burnt it at the open end of a pipe. The result was a. flickering and smoky glimmer, which gave off an unpleasant odour. It was something like burning a piece of oily rope. When he wanted to turn off the light — gas taps had not been in- 1 vented in those days — he simply plugged the end of the pipe. One day, ~zl being able to find a plug, he picked up a thimble which, through incessant use, had worn into small holes at the top, and put it over| the end of the pipe. j The effect was starting, for the light at ouce became bright and j smokeless. From this accidental dis-j covery the now old fashioned flat-! flame burners developed, and up till1 fairly recent years remained the common means of using gas foi lighting. ?Mixinir It with Air.

AILING LATE CHICKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

AILING LATE CHICKS. \ Cases of illnes among late chicks frequently occur when they have to j occupy the same runs as the early j broods. Generally speaking, late' chicks are not so robust as those j hatched earlier; weather conditions; ar^ unreliable. A few warm days in succession deceive one into turning out the brooder lamp then comes the inevitable drop in temperature, and a chilly night, and a flock ot healthy chicks to-day will perhaps be very ill - to-morrow. Some pass out, and many of the survivors receive a check in growth. Absolute cleanliness is more essential now than earlier in the season. A few drops of chick health is a wonderful tonic and pre ventive iust now; or enough of Con-! jdy's crystal in the water to turn it1 pink, two or three times per week, [is . beneficial, A little raw onion l chopped fine is excellent; and keep ins- a dish of dry bran before them will keep the bowels functioning.

WHITE MAGIC. Men are Now at Work Again After injuries Once Supposed to be Fatal. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

WHITE MAGIC. Men are Now at Work Again After Injuries Once Supposed to be Fatal. The real wTiite magic of todaiy operates, not in a darkened room, in the midst of dusty folios and mysterious symbols, but .under electric light and in an atmosphere of disinfectants, Its practitioner is the surgeon. Perhaps one of the most marvel lous things about the modern sur- j geon is the way in which he has; taken a leaf out of the book of that1 master magician, the engineer. . Just as the engineer will provide spare parts for a motor car, the surgeon j has learned to provide spare parts' for men and women. | An interesting, case of this sort \v;m made public recently. A young girl came -into the ''surgeon's hands requiring- a new nose, and had one bulk up by means of a graft of frartiiage apd skin. When she went back to. school the change was so complete that her gymnasium mis tres:: failed to recognise her and asked who the new girl was. Miracles of Healing. - But the work of the surgeon does n...

BAGS OF OTHER DAYS. NOW IN MODERNISED EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

BAGS OF OTHER DAYS. NOW IN MODERNISED EFFECT.' ? i Quaint, indeed, are many of the old Yshions this season introduced -as new. Bags, in particular, are capturing a delightfully entertaining, most pic turesque air but recently supposed to belong -to those seen only on canvases depicting the costumes of smart ladies of the early Victorian period. 1 Indeed, through numberless aven ues of fashion, we are arriving at modes but recently regarded as too extravagant — in a double sense — ever to again appeal. 'Back to Georgian days' is a long, long way to travel, 'but, without doubt, de signers of the modes of the moment have already taken a great many steps on the journey. Terms and phrases applied to pre sent-day modes, must, in numberless ' case, prove decidedly bewildering to readers who have no acquaintance with any language, other than their own. A pochette, for instance, leaves them ouite uninformed as to tht shape featured. A handbag described as a pochette,] is really a bag in most...

I SUMMER ENSEMBLES COLORED SCHEMES IN STYLES TO CONTRAST i ? ? — — _ BLACK RELIEVED WITH WHITE GIVES STRIKING EFFECT The brilliantly colorful effect of summer toilettes in the fashion able printed chiffon, crepc de chine, or silk, is enhanced by the striking contrast afforded by ensembles all black, black and white, or the particularly chic combination of black and yellow. Dress in somewhat sombre scheme particularly appeals to the French Woman's taste. It is the Parisian who, each season, evidences her appreciation of the black or the exceedingly elegant and becoming black anJ white ensemble, and it is she wno insists tnat, no matter ho ar crowded the field may be with toilette in gay floral patterned fabrics, place must be yielded tp these strikingly distinctive, and more artistically restrained creations. Nor is the audacious note altogether excluded from designs thus evolved. Black and white possesses possibilities undreamed of save by that genius ...

FASHION'S WHIMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

FASHION'S WHIMS. Green and red are fashionable. It i is not green and red qualified and! reduced to faintly delicate shades,] but green ? and red barbarically ob trusive,' insistently dominating, and, it must be admitted, highly success ful. J A great French designer, eager to provide the greedily sought after j new effects, has unquestionably sue- 1 needed, even though experiments j perhaps have been limited to this single or combined expression of j color. Green, darkly olive, brilli antly emerald, will, so this master in the realm of dress declares, entirely displace multi-tones featured in fab ric of which jumper or blouse has hitherto been maue. And we had thought ourselves so gay, so daring! It is a Frenchman who considers we have been neither, and tells us that this spring and summer we may be both if we will consent to follow where he leads. For some inexplicable reason it is beige — not black or brown — but beige, which will serve as the main I support of bold ventures of t...

BUILT TO MEASURE. Are Your Proportions Right for Beauty ? Every Woman and Every Man Can Test This at Home by Making a Few [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

BUILT TO MEASURE. { Are Your Proportions Right for Beauty ? Every Woman and 1 Every Man Cm Test This at Home by Making a Few Simple Measurements. ? 1 In a bock on 'Beautiful Feet,' written by an Austrian profes sor, the author says that the per fect foot should be thrice as long as ils greatest breadth, and in length exactly one-seventh of its owner's height. So if your height is' five feet ten inches, your foot should bs exactly ten inches long. Very few of us realise that our bodies are built — so to speak — to measure, and that there are cer tain standards by which it is easy £or each of us to ascertain whether his or her body-is well-rpoportioned. ?„ ' We have mentioned the proportion between the foot and height; an otner stanoaro is mat, m tne races, the height should be seven j and a half times the length of the head. This, however, applies only toj white races. In the case of negroes,! the proportion is seven heads; while i in the yellow races, who a*'e all short-legged, the ...

THE SUMMER OUTFIT. THE COLOR QUESTION OF IMMENSE IMPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

THE SUMMER OUTFIT. I THE COLOR QUESTION OF I IMMENSE IMPORT. 1 Every season fashion presents us with a chart of the colors which have won her passing favor, and dressmakers and their clients r.ccept that chart with due so- i iemnity. Both fabrics and styles 1 co new and intriguing, the color | question is of immense import ance. In a month or so the charming, bright bu'oble will burst, and our much-pendered ' outfits will be shabby. But for the moment the choice that has to be made between Gobelin blue and stroller tan is ab ' sorbing a great many feminine thoughts. In matters of fashion the shewd est of us become as innocent as chil dren. If we were assured in the name of fashion that black was not! black this season we would hesitate [to deny it.

GIANT MEALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

GIANT MEALS. One of the bggest pots of soup ever] marie is a feature of a 'gipsy party' which takes place at Bildon, in York shire, soon. j Centuries ago there was an annual gathering of the gipsy tribes at Bail-j don. Later on the people of the dis trict cai ried on the custom by having! a gipsy camp of their own on the moor, preparing and eating a gipsy soup, and taking part in a number! of ceremonies. This custom is now being revived, and the soup is to contain, among other ingredients, 500 1 lb. of meat, 600 lb. of peas, 300 lb. \ of potatoes, and 900 lb. of other' vegetables. ! Yorkshire seems to take a special, delight in Gargantuan repasts of thisj kind. Denby Dale is famous for its: giant pies, une maae last year con tained the beef of four bullocks and 15 cwt. of potatoes. It was served to about 20,000 people, all of whom voted it excellent. Pieparing a giant dish, of this kind is a ticklish iob, but there was only one Denby Dale pie that was a fail ure. It was being baked ...

A GAY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

A GAY EFFECT. The summer jumper, in black, brown, or other color silk or satin, will be wbnderfully enlivened by a simple addition readily contrived by any girl capable with her needle. In determining success, the tone alliance is all important. Should the plain jumper be in black fabric, combine with it circles, in varied size, cut in white, red or burnt orange silk or satin. A length of ribbon, ottoman or in other style will de lightfully serve. The circles may range frojn the size of a shilling to a rrown piece. To ensure accuracy of outline, first draw the circle on cardboard, cut out the cardboard and place each circle in the different size against the folded fabric. To render neat,! the circles may be oversewn in silk, turned in or bound as preferred. ; , Arrange the larger circles against the extreme right side hem of the] jumper, then bring up in the decreas- ; ing size to a high point of the centre I front bodice.

HATS FOR SUMMER. Shallow crowns and long backs favored. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 10 January 1930

„ HATS FOR SUMMER. Shallow crowns and long BACKS FAVORED. Hats have changed very much this summer; not only in design i and. cut, but also and even more '^noticeably, in the way they are worn. Tliey are no longer drawn down to .fit 'closely and evenly . round the head a fraction of an inch above the eybrows; they arc made shallower in the crown . and they are worn well .off the 4 ' face, - an inch or more up ? the roreneaa. urten tuey are cwisiea slightly to one side in a slant- . ? ing, and as a rule very becom- j ing line. j v But only hats that have been spe- ( cially cut on this line should be thus' . worn ; a deep crowned hat which last feeason .you wore pressed down low on the head will only look ridiculous if it is pushed back off the face, and the consequent extra fulness in tne crown ineffectively camouflaged by a series of tucks or pleats. This ap-j plied ; particularly, of course, to the hats 'of felt, for even the most pliable , straw can hardly be treated in this way. I...
