UNIQUE CHRISTMAS PUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 April 1914

UNIQUE CHRISTMAS PUDDING. Oho of the most remarkable Christ mas , pud dings on record was tho one made by the late Lord Wolseiey and a brother officer to celebrate the Christ mas spent in tho Crimea. These are tho details: A box of figs did for fruit. Suofc was unobtainable, so they used rancid grease. There was no flour to bo had, so they made some by ponud iug up ship's biscuit with a pestlo and mortar. The lattor articles wero also improvised—a lluSBian round shot and a picce of an exploded shall. When the moss was properly mixed it was tied in a towel and placed to boil. An order to hurry to the trenches cut short this operation, however, and tho fate of tho pudding hutig for a moment in doubt. Hither it had to be wasted or eaten . half cooked, it was eaton, and Wols- ' eley had to rotire stfme time later from tile trenches under doctor's orders.

WOMAN CONDEMNS SMOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 April 1914

WOMAN CONDEMNS SMOKING. "I haven't much patience with'thc people who object .to smoking, because it is 'unladylike,' " (says a London writer.) "Cycling for women wa3 'unladylike' not very long ago; so was tho wearing of tailorinade coats and sltil'ts! I'tir a good juany years, tho 'nice girl' never waltzed. She only danced polka.-., ipiadiilles, and so on, and left waltzing to the kind of peo ple who di<l bunny hugs and turkey trots u season or two back. What you call 'unladylike' really depends very much on the year in which you were born.'' The writer then goes on to state, her real reason i'or disliking smoking, because when strong men wish' to get into the pink of condition—boxers, foot ballers, anil forth—they nearly always give up smoking. "Well, 1 think they ought to know what they arc doing. I thiiik that a habit whiclii', confessely, doesn't help to build up the organism of a football champion is more than likely to do downright harm to tho infinitely more j deli...

PERFUMES NO LONGER CONDEMNED. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 April 1914

PERFUMES NO LONGER CONDEMNED. A Hume authority states that pet fumes are uu longer considered con demned as effeminate. Bath crystals are among the more popular forms of perfume, as they are refreshing and also sol'teu the water. l'ublic taste now shows a strong ten dency towards the mysterious scent, so that the old simple scents like, violet, rose, and lily of the valley are giving way to perfumes composed of perhaps as many as fifty dill'erent ingredients —perfumes, for instanco, like Shem-ol Nossim. There is as much harmony and discord in porfumcry a3 i" music, Harmony in the toilet can only be achieved by the use of the same per fume throughout, while, in tho mak ing of composite perfumes, tho smallest grain too much or too little of any ingredient will cause as much discord as when a pianist plays a wrong note. O," ivhat were skies without tho stars O, what were earth without the flow ers? Aiid what were life without tho love of friends? ~Weatherley. I

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 April 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A (.-me fur ants of all kinds, cock roache*, and any other pests that iu vade the parity, is green walnuts. J'Jace in the clu>cta, cupboards, or any place where they are likely to be. The cure is effectual and the remedy clean. When you clean the ebony brushes on your toilet table, rub a little vase line* over the backs before you wash the bristles, as this prevents the soda or ammonia in the water from injuring the ebony. The vaseline should after wards be removed by polishing the backs with a dry cloth. -To clean much-soiled hands do not go to work roughly with brush and soda water, but loosen the dirt by rubbing the hands well with s-.veGt oil, or even lard or dripping. /Then wipe off the grease as much as po.—ible with a piece of *oit paper or old rag, and wash the hands with warm water and so:ip.
