MENDING PICTURES. Wonderful Operation which give to Dying" Old Masters a New Lease of Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

MENDING PICTURES. Wonderful Operation which give to 'Dying' Old Masters a New Lease of Life. Pictures, like 'pearls, die if not properly cared for. Too much heat, too great cold, the direct rays- of the sun, or ? worse than all— -damp will ruin any. paint * - ? s. iAg. J 4 - ' - - Even a picture that is properly hung and cared for goes off. The colors used by tlie old artists were not always permanent, and the yel lows grow dull, while the orange often changes to brown. The sul phur in coal smoke or fog is very destructive to any painting, and in the case of a picture that is hoi pro tected by glass dirt accumulates and] p-raduallv darkens the colors. i From all these causes the damage done 'to old and valuable paintings riins to an enormoUs sum yearly, and it is no wonder that a! large number of picture restorers are kept con stantly busy; Lifting the Pain:. There are two sorts of picture restorers. The first will wash a pic ture very much as if it were a door, then slap on a new c...

SLIPS OF THE PEN. They Are Due to Want of Care, Rather than to Lack of Knowledge. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

SUPS OF THE PEN. They Are Due to Want of Care, Rather than to Lack of Knowledge. I think I must abandon teaching aS a profession, and -adopt some other and more useful means of earning a c living! Why? Well, th-q other day I 're «, ceived a letter from a boy 'vyho left school a few years ago'.

We look at one another and, between you' and I, she has a idea -I would like to speak, but neither she or me like to speak first. Hoping to soon hear from you ...'

WHAT DOES SPENDING COST? How much does it cost you to spend £100? The answer is £100 down, and -at least S.1 per annum for the rest of your life. Yet V/hat 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 that might otherwise have earned interest at 4 r'f- indefinitely. Every pound you spend has attached to it an invisible string of pennies which you spend with it. i KEEP YOUR MONEY IN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT AND EARN, NOT I SPEND, 4 To INTEREST PER ANNUM j #nuwea(tb$avmg$ JBanfc of itorclia GUARANTEED BY THE COMMONWEALTH GOVERNMENT ri Pj (j i t

STONE AGE OF HORSE RACING. THE PALIO CONTEST. PICTURESQUE RACE OF OLD TUSCAN TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

STONE AGE OF HORSE - RACING. ! THE PALIO CONTEST. PICTURESQUE RACE OF OLD TUSCAN TOWN. ? i The visitor to Siena, that delight-1 ful Tuscan hill town, is amazed to be told, on crossing the stone-paved piazza — a sort of market-square, anything but square in shape — that in suuimer-time it is used as a horse racecourse. He recalls the comment of the Dig-jl ger who observed, when told that the j Germans had stabled their horses inl Belgian ^cathedrals, 'Well, I always]1 heard -they were cruel to animals — | but think of putting a good horse onj, those cold stone floors!' i' I The Sienese festival is known as j the Palio, and is contested in July i and August by the various wards of ( the town, creating the most intense; civic - rivalry which it is possible tol imagine. ? It is more a running- battle than! a horse race as Australians under- j stand it, and the course, with its in-I equalities of surface, its stone pave-] 'misfit, and its awkward slopes away i from the centre at the' ang...

VETERAN WHO RODE IN TEN-MILE RACE. CONTEST OF 60 YEARS AGO RECALLED. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

VETERAN WHO RODE IN TEN-MILE RACE. CONTEST OF 60 YEARS AGO RECALLED. Sam McLauchlan, who rode in the famous 10-mile race at Wagga ! on November 20, 18G8, has been on a visit to relatives in Melbourne. At the age of 80 McLauchlan en joys remarkably good health and lias an excellent memory. His brother, the late Charley McLauchlan, used to field at meetings in Sydney and Melbourne, and raced horses in the Murrumbidgee river district, his trainer at one period being Joe Hay ward, now located at Cauilield. ! JLf-r-nvf1iinn- in Clam 1W/«T .onr-Vilfln the idea of a 10-mile race originated with station owners in the neighbor hood, one of whom was Rawdon Greene. Conditions provided jfor welter weight-for-age being earned, the prize being a £'i sweepstakes, with. £300 added. Wagga newspapers applauded local enterprise for staging so novel an event, but it aroused a storm of condemnation among horselovers throughout Australia. One Mel bourne writer referred to 'Trojlus dying from over exertio...

RICE AS A FOWL FEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

RICE AS A FOWL FEED. 'I am a user of boiled rice for chicks, but I counsel care with its use in the unhusked state' (writes a correspondent). To reduce cost of the grain ration I gave it a trial and am still using it in moderation, mixed with wheat and cracked corn, I think I used it a little too freely at the start, when only a little should be added to the ration, never exceeding sav one-fourth of ricc- to other grains. The tough husk is the trou ble. I noticed many cases of blood in the droppings, and a good many cases of sour crop. The latter cas^s were obstinate, not responding to usual treatment, and on emptying i the crops the undigested ' rice grains were nearly always in evidence. I consider that the harsh husk is apt to irritate the internal organs. Stead ily introducing the feeding of it may overcome the difficulty as the fowls eat it as readily as wheat, so my trouble may have arisen through eagerness to utilise a cheaper grain. Egg production is in no way affected by ri...
