WHY LOW PRICES IN TIN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
WHY LOW PRICES IN TIN MARKET. Following is a copy of a letter re ceived from Mr. T. H. Kelly, of Sydney, in reference to the tin market:— "Two or three circumstances seem to have delayed the restoration of business in tin. In the first place, i gather that the requirements of the American market, and perhaps those of other countries, have been well sup plied by tin purchased some time ago by the Inter-Allied Tin Executive. In the second place, it is very difficult to get space for the shipment of tin to Great Britain, and the uncertainty of actually obtaining the freight which has been provided has, 110 doubt, had something to do with making British buyers indisposed to buy Australian tin for the time being. I also gather that perhaps buyers of all raw materi als are at present doubtful as to what industrial conditions will prevail after the signing of peace, and for this rea son there is a tendency to abstain from buying until the future is more as surcri.''— ' Inverell Argus.

Of Interest to Women. Rough Hair. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 7 February 1919
Interest to Women, By Mother o' Pearl "3* Rough Hair. Soine hair refuses to be smooth and glossy, no matter what care is bestowed upon it. The result is an unkempt head, fcjvery effort should be made to fight the condition. Systematic treatment is the best re medy; if that is out of the question, do one's best at home, with regular brush ing allied to tonic massages. As hair is usually rough because of lack of natural oil, seek to supply it. Each night before retiring rub into tile scalp a few drops of almond oil. This must not be spread on the long hair, as it makes it greasy and a dust collector. Apply oil with finger-tips, then rub in well by lightly pinching the scalp with thumb and first finger of each hand. Spread the fingers several inches apart and gradually draw them together. Keep this up all over head in different directions. When the oil is well worked in, brush the hair thoroughly. The best brush for this purpose is one with stiff pig bristles that reach into the scalp ...
