BOOK REVIEWS THRILLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

BOOK REVIEWS — . ! THRILLERS. j ? i J. S. Fletcher is in capital form inj I'll Venture All For Thee (Jar rold's). He has resurrected the Jaco-| bite refugee and made a capital his-j torical novel, not. the usual synthetic affair no many w^ers mako of the '45 and its aftermath. J ne suiges nis piot in nis own De loved North: York, Searborough and Bridlington are the principal' scenes. His villain, Parson Hood, is a very proper villain who really should per ish. 'There are heads on Micklegate Bar,' said Parson Hood, ominously to Als^n, the hero, and Alan does not want his head to decorate this his toric edifice. _ That is the main plot. Freda comes along and puts spokes in the parson's machinery. ? A -4-..,.,. A '..t ? .J, /»' /' ? ' . _1 U ? r ucwve .tt.u vi y s uaspara nauier Gollancz), is disappointing.

THE ADORNMENT CRAZE. REACTION TO PRIMITIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

THE ADORNMENT CRAZE.; REACTION TO PRIMITIVE. { ? i I Humans wore ornaments before' they wore clothes. There are savage j tribes to-day who wear nothing you; could call a gax-ment, but you couldn't find a man or woman anywhere, how-j ever primitive, who didn't wear a | necklace o a nose ring, a headdress or ' some other sort of adornment. 'Hat; :1'1 rt fnu/1 f onf + uiiiiiiuug uidj uu aaiu tu onvcuotv hats by thousands of years in the, history of most races. And babies notice the bits of ribbon on their j little dresses long before they take any conscious interest in dress itself. This goes to show that elaborate dress is really more primitive than simple dress and in the present ten dency toward more ingeniously, trimmed dresses and -hats we are real ly getting oacK to norma:. OUR SAVAGE ANCESTORS. '? It shows also, that the woman who is sometimes tempted beyond the point of resistance to don jewellery is only answering a primitive and ur gent desire — that of adorning her self. Per...

IMPORTANCE OF NECK LINE. TURN-OVER MUSLIN COLLARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

IMPORTANCE OF NECK LINE.^ TURN-OVER MUSLIN COLLARS. | The varied and intricate treatment ' of the neck-line constitutes a conspi-' cuous feature in ensembles of the! most up-to-date order. j Schemes, greatly approved, include' innovations in colorful, or heavilv stitched form; silk in self-tone, or to-, contrast being employed in the con ferring of a quite Parisian note. ; The tendency is towards the closed neck in frocks for autumn and win ter wear. The higher waist line and the side dipping, or all-around lengthened skirt hem, were inevitably destined j to influence in such direction. j Since the appearance of these two! latter effects, treatment not only of the neck line, but of the entire bo-! dice, has undergone decided change.' That supreme simplicity for which the neck line of frocks was for long! remarkable, has fortunately disap peared. To very few types did thej plain untrimmed low round neckl prove becoming. Beauty gains by the newer mode. The back neck, at the moment the...

USEFUL HINTS PROTECT YOUR AXE [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

USEFUL HINTS PROTECT YOUR AXE The handle of an axe always wears : first on the front edge, close to the blade, as tlrs is the part which bears \ the brunt of all the mis-hits. The 1 handle may be protected with a wire guard at this point, greatly prolong-' ing its usefulness. Place a piece of heavy fencing wire, about six inches' in length, along the front edge, and hinH if tn fhe Yi^yiHIp ivifVi pnit'.nov wi-rn of about 20 gauge. This will rein force the handle for the whole lencth' that is subjected to knocks and splin-' tering. MORE PLANING HINTS. Some morfths ago in this column several hints were given on planing. Here are some others which will be found valuable. Always use the longest plane that will do the work in hand satisfactorily.

TATTERSALLS AT VICTORIA PARK Double To Gawler Trainer BIG DIVIDEND IN WELTER Tattersalls Club was unfortunate that it struck such a hot day for its March Meeting at Victoria Park on Saturday. Atten dance and totalisator figures were undoubtedly affected by the weather. features ot the racing were the dual success of the Gawler trainer, J. Doyle, with Kirrkie and Aurie Anton, and the big : dividend returned by Balisand for his success in the Welter. One of the last batch of Pistols in ICidston triumphed in the Juvenile Handicap.

A WONDERFUL TOTE RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

A WONDERFUL TOTE RETURN. The subject of big totalisator divi dends caused Mr. P. C. Brown, manager of the machines operated by the Western India Turf Club at Bombay and Poona, to write to the London 'Times' as follows: — 'I paid out Rs. 17,409 (slightly over £1,305) for a win ticket at one of the extra meetings of the Poona season, and I believe this to be the highest dividend ever paid. There were two tickets on the horse ; but five minutes before the start of the race a woman asked me to exchange her ticket. I did so, and this left one ticket, held by a Parsee, which scoop ed the pool.' Presumably it was a Rs.10 ticket — equal to 15/.

SOUTH BROKEN HILL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

SOUTH BROKEN HILL RACES. (From Our Local Correspondent.) The South Broken Hill races on Saturday last were held in hot wear ther, and the attendance was small. The fields under the circumstances were good, and the racing with one exception (the Plate) was clean and interesting. The well-known Peterboroughj owner - trainer, Jack Moloney, won the hurdles very easily with his good country performer, Oorallaw, not withstanding that he only' arrived a short time before the race started, having left Peterborough the pre-: vious evening, a distance of 180 miles, he started a warm favorite, and was ridden by his usual pilot, J. V. Casey. Royal Quality, the Novice winner,! is a locally bred mare by the Comedy j King horse, Semada, and has rani consistently for about 12 months without having previously caught the judge's eye first. The principal event, the Newmar ket Handicap, provided a stirring, 'iirsh, and was won by another dis trict-bred mare in Filicitas, by. Wishing Cap, and was follow...

MAD TAURUS. HIS TRICKS BEFORE THE NEWMARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 7 March 1930

MAD TAURUS. HIS TRICKS BEFORE THE NEWMARKET. I j When Taurus, the favorite, was ; be»ng led out for the Newmai'ket he | got up to his usual pranks. He goes mad when it is time to be taken out for a race, and as was the case in his two races at Caulfield, became in furiated and unmanageable. He threw his boy, bolted up the uaiiuu aucv vva^ w iiclc liic uuiccs parade out to the course, and . then fell and got rid of his bridle. Woods, the clei'k of the course, an amateur broncho buster apparently, and at any rate a natural-born horse master, leapt from his horse, grabbed Taurus by the ear, and quickly got him under control. When he rose Woods . snatched a 'leg, and, holding it up off the ground thus kept him in order, while some body put his bridle on. Remounted, Woods* led him out, but he objected to his being on the near side, so he got round on the off, and after being led down the effoirrVit fnv q /lAiinln r\t f nvl amo-c ct settled down quietly and cantered off on his own peacefu...
