"JUICE'S OFF." But the London Underground Never Sleeps—the Safety Staff are Getting Busy. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

' JOICE'S OFF.' But the London Underground j Never Sleeps — the Safety Staff are Getting Busy. j i Few of the 350,000,000 o-U yearly passengers of London's ! Underground railways have any j idea of the vast amount of work carried out for their especial comfort and .safety. Every night, when the average passen ger is asleep, over 300 men are overhauling the system from top to bottom in readiness for the morrow. Out of the daily staff of more than; 4,000 men, certain gTades will have] swept and cleared all passages, ap proaches, and platforms by about 11 p.m. It then remains for the 'sui- cide's trough' (the hollowed-out bed of the track at 'deep level' stations) to be swept when traffic ceases. The day's working and the sweep ing have left the atmosphere filled with germ-laden dust, but during the night it is thoroughly cleansed by a! blast of specially ozonised air pump ed through the ventilating shafts.! By morning, therefore, the air un-j lerground is as pure as, and some times pu...

HAIRDRESSING TODAY. ETON CROP AND PERMANENT WAVE DOOMED. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

HAIRDRESSING TODAY. i ETON CROP AND PERMANENT! WAVE DOOMED. I Women will be glad to hear that the lengthy process of perma nent waving is to be shortened in the near future. I wish I could say .that it is to be cheaper, too, but I fear this is not so. - j There will be no Eton crops. The smartest heads are those with hair chat is long enough to be dressed on the nape of the neck. Alas for the kiss-curl, but that has gone, .too. Hair will be worn straight against the cheeks and over the ears, althc-ugh just a few curls- will be per mitted on the forehead. SWEET DISORDER. i The poet who wrote about thq; 'sweet disorder' of a woman's dress' now has his words applied to their hair. According to London's smart est hairdresser, heads must look un even this winter. j i Qne side will be more curly than the other; one side will look orderly and the other ruffled. But the smart est coiffure of all is one that has a slierhtlv Russian air about it. . The hair is middle parted, brushed, straight...

WIDTH OF PERCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

WIDTH OF PERCHES. i The theory of the advocates of narrow perches is that a narrow perch fits the fowl's foot better — the width allowing the claws to grasp the perch better than on a wide perch as is natural when a bird sits on a perch. This characteristic, however, is more applicable to flying birds than fowla. Chicks generally begin to roost for preference on much wider surfaces than any roost provides; and a fowl when ro or ting supports her self by resting on her breastbone as well as on her leg--,. We believe 3in. wide to be a proper width for chicks and adult fowls;! it is approximately equal to the length of a chick's breastbone, when thev start to roost, and will not cause indentations in the soft bone that a one or two inch wide perch might, and it will give the hens the support already mentioned.

DAINTY LINGERIE. MADE FROM ODDS AND ENDS OF REMNANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

DAINTY LINGERIE. MADE FROM ODDS AND ENDS OF REMNANTS. The woman who makes her own lingerie and who must bo specially economical in her expenditure for materials can do wonders with rem nants. There is hardly an odd length of material too short to be of use in some sort of clever undergarment, negligee nightgown or ipyjama. a iavorite type ot combination with the younger girls consists of aj pair of shorts, trim at the hips and] slightly flaring to the hem weli above: the knees.

THE MEANING OF TYPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

THE MEANING OF TYPE. It can almost be said that type is the main character in the breed's re presentation. For instance, there is a vast difference between a fox ter rier and a bulldog; they are both dogs, they may both be white, but they cannot be mistaken. Their type, not their color, stamps them. Type indicates the breed and color the variety of the breed, hence type is most important.

LATEST FOR LADIES j REVOLUTIONARY AUTUMN FASHIONS AND MATERIALS NEW MODES ARE ESSENTIALLY FEMININE. It is doubtful whether a new season has ever been launched with quite as much eclat as this autumn season of .1930. For some time now, one' must admit, vague murmurings from overseas have reached these 'shores ? murmurings of im pending changes in the world of fashion! Only mere whisper ings, however, that one fondly hoped Would nevfer attain the full maturity of a shout. But in spite of hopes, in spite of wishes, these whispers have materialised aind at present Adelaide women engaged in watching mannequins parade in gowns and cloak' the very antithesis of those they have been used to for the past six or seven years. In almost every dVess-makino- establishment one may at pre sent see rows and rows of women watching the pageant of the new season's fashions unfold before their eyes. With .furrowed brows, they note the tragic changes between the clothes of last season in . comparison wit...

A NATURAL COMPLEXION. GOLDEN RULES WILL ENSURE SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

* NATURAL COMPLEXION. GOLDEN RULES WILL ENSURE SUCCESS. Few of us, are endowed with a Venus-like figure, or the loveli ness of Helen of Troy, but there is one thing that is within the reach' of every woman, and thai is a beautiful, natural complex ion. Nothing is so repellinc aa Sk rmiffll. klntrliv clrin. generally, is there any excuse for- it. The method of cultivat ing a lovely skin is simplicity itself. Though the face is rough as sand paper, do not despair; it can soon be made the envy and admiration of all your friends, if you adopt the fol fmxrivicr fvMh-iPnf ? ? The first golden rule which must fce strictly kept is to drink plenty of water — warm, first thing in the morning, and either warm or cold during the day. By atta-Jcing the skin from inside,, so to speak, the outward treatment is made easy. .USE OLIVE OIL. Procure some olive oil from your chemist or grocer, and make sure it is olive oil, as lots of 'olive oil' sold is made 'in factories where olives are an unknown qu...

TO RENEW EVENING TOILETTE. DELIFETFULLY COLORFUL SCHEMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

TO RENEW EVENING TOILETTE. DELIFHTFULLY COLORFUL SCHEMES. k Accessories designed to com plete the evening toilette have never before been so . charming . and so varied. Fluttering ribbons, silk, tulle, scarves, slender lengths of finely pleated colorful georgette — these di rect to the more simple means by which novelty and attraction may be irtroduced into frocks otherwise de void of .rimming. Slotted effects will be in high favor, and ' may make equally fash ionable appearance on either the front or back bodice. The enliven ing influence exerted upon the toil ette by pleated georgette iii any one of the smart shades of red, pink or primrose is very decided. The slotting of the bodice re quires no great skill. Failure to achieve success in the general scheme results only if methods are careless and the taking of measurements be neglected. Points calculated to accentuate this new, very delightful color- note should meet with careful considera tion. Study your frock on . I.he -figure...

EGG-EATING IS HABIT OF ALL FOWLS. BREAKERS ARE THE REAL CULPRITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

EGG-EATING IS HABIT OF ALLFOWLS. BREAKERS ARE THE REAL CULPRITS. Few things give more annoy- ] ance to a poultry' man than to discover that he has one or more egg-eaters in his flock. Gene rally speaking, egg-eating i» ope of the troubles of the flush lay ing season. Writing in a Sydney paper, Mr. James Hadlington remarks: It ia somewhat amusing to see the conr sternation of the average poultry-) keeper when he sees an egg being eaten by his hens. It is not much less amusing to read some of the re medies advocated for curing the hens of the so-called habit. The facts in I this connection are that any hen will eat an egg once it 'is broken. When an eggshell is broken from any cause ihe hens will rush to eat it. How ever, this is not the true cause of egg fating. If we designated the misdemeanor as 'egg-breaking' it would explain the trouble. ' When eggs . are being eaten, first find out if they are be ing accidentally broken or broken by a hen that has acquired the vicious habit. In ...
