Laundering a Silk Jumper [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
Lauidering a Silk Jumper With very little effort, and atten tion to a few details, the most beauti ful knitted jumpers or dresses can re laundered at home -'ith the expendi ture of a few pence only. This method is both su:itable for real silk or artif! cial silk that is prepared from woo-i pulp; both wash equally well. but ar tificial silk improves after washing. Provide sufficient warm water in a bath or large basin to allow easy movement of the whole dress or jum per; a small basin does not allow rcom for the water to move freely through the garment, Very hot water might loosen the colour, and water that is tco cold cannot move the ,rease. The water should be just comfortably hot. Have ready soma soap jelly made from pure yellow primrose soap; on no account use household or strong cleaning soap or soap powders. Pure soan flakes could be used, which quickly dissolve, or a piece of yellow soap could be put into a wire soap-saver and boiling water poured en to it. Soap jelly is made ...
Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1924 [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1924 The first issue of the Advocate was not brought out without ex periencing the usual difficulties. The usual mistakes in typography and the usual omissions all had a place in the initial publication. Nevertheless the little paper was heartily welcomed by the local people and many commendatory remarks have reached the pro prietary. It was a feat to bring an issue out at all in the circum stances as neither plant nor build ings were completed. The car penters, the painters and glaziers the electricians and-general mach inists were all in the way with unfinished work. The news re porter who is expected to chron Icle all the doings of the town and the outside world had not assumed his duties, the proof reader and paragraphists had not come on and the editor was faced with things approaching the chaotic. Still the issue was brought out" and the folks appear to be fairly satisfied. Shortly a reporting rGundsman will be on deck and the various commi...

HIS REMINDER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
HIS REMINDEIR, "Now, children," said the visiting mninister who had been asked to ques. tion the Sunday school, "with what did Samson arm himself to fight agai.st the Philistines?" None of the children could tell him. "Oh, yes, you know!" he said, and to help them he tapped his jaw with one finger. "What is this ?" he asked. This jogged their memories, and the class crier in chorus: "The jawbone of an ass,'

TRUGANINA NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
TRUGANINA NEWS An excellent concert was given by the Jovial Entertainers of As cot Vale, in aid of the funds of the Truganina Hall. A crowdeid house thoroughly enjoyed the items, particularly the humourous ones. At the close of the pro gramme the Progress Associa tion's president (Mr. Harrison) and Cr. Maher suitably thanked the company for their generosity in providing the entertainment. After supper the hall was cleared, and dancing was indulged in until the early hours.

FOOTBALL. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the Suti shiine I' oonhall Club was held in the Shire Hall on Monday, Febru ary 4. '1 he preside't (Mr. G. Coulter) was in the chair. There was a good attendance of mem bers. despite the warnmth of the evening. The president, in his opening address, referred to the past sea son's performance, and regretted that lie was not in a position to congratulate the team on being remiiers. They had, however, done well, and managed to secure a place in the final four. H-e hoped that the coming season would be niore successful than the last, an I he urged on those members wh,, accepted positions as office-bearers to put their whole energy into th:: work. It was only by the co-ope ration of all concerned that they would hope for success.

CRAZY IMPULSES [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
CRAZY IMPULSES A famous wit once confessed to a secret ambition to throw an egg into an electric fan. Very likely he will go through life with this wish ungratified, al though gratification is easily within his means. Another man, equally great in his line, was once seized at a large dinner party with the im pulse to throw a stuffed tomato at the gleaming shirt-front of the gentleman opposite. The more he thought about it the more the idea fascinated him. Perfectly aware that all standard books on etiquette are opposed to such quaint conceits, he nevertheless acted upon the im pulge, greatly to the surprise of the gentleman opposite, who, however, responded in kind. Soon all the guests were like wise engaged, and so continued throughout the salad course. Very few people would have had the courage to act upon such.an impulse, although nearly everyone has at times been tempted by other impulses just as bizarre. Who has not been almost irre sistibly beguiled - when the minister inquire...
SERVED HIM RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
SE:RVED HIM RIGHT. The fat old lady struggled valiantly to mount the high step of the waiting omnibus. 'fCome along, ma!" urged the con ductor. "They ought to 'a' given you more yeast when yer was a gal; then you'd be able to rise better." "Yes, young man." retorted the old dame, as at last she hoisted herself triumphantly up. "Ar.d if they'd given you a bit more yeast you'd be better bred." The other clay Jones heard a pretty good conundrum and decided to try it on his wife. "Do you know why I am like a mule?" he asked her when he went home. The wife did not even stop to think. "No,"' she replied promptly. "I kndw you are, but I don't know why you are."
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
POULTRY iOTES. By "Tight Feather." The cause of many failures in poultry keeping is that a beginner 1 must be qualified to run a bu;i - ness on his or her own-and h, many have this qualification I 1 maj:rity o.f people arc worker very fewic rn succe.-sful bu nesses. Most beginners must fr l,,w. other people's methods a: advice, and if they are fortunate enough to have' plenty of common sense it is a valuable asset.

Another School Required [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 March 1924
Another School Required Residents of Sunshine, west of Anderson's road, have been com plaining lately of the distance their children have to travel to reach the State school. It is also eery dangerous, as the children mu:s't cross the railway line t) reach their destination.
