LIVERPOOL GRAND NATIONAL FIELD SMALLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

LIVERPOOL GRAND NATIONAL FIELD SMALLER. Last year there were 66 runners for the Liverpool Grand National, snd only nine finished. The field was too unwieldy, and various schemes were suggested with a view to keep ing, it down to reasonable size. These were all rejected, and the only alteration was the increase of the entry fee from £5 to £10. There seemed little possibility of this having much effect, but it did. Eighty-four entries were received against 121 a year ago, and the odds are against more than 40 acceptors.

Make no mistake! Kidney troubles are often mis understood, and much needless pain and discomfort is endured as a consequence. The work of the kidneys is to filter the blood, and if they fail to do so, uric acid and other poisonous impurities upset the entire system. That is why it is so dangerous to neglect back ache, urinary disorder,* bladdel weakness, rheumatic twinges, head aches, dizziness and nervousness. alt is unusual for all of thesfl symptoms to be present at one time, but if you are in doubt about yourself, you will do well to use Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. t)on't risk the development of rheumatism, sciatica, lumbago, dropsy, gravel, stone, and other results of kidney disorder. Middle aged people, especially, should take j an occasional course of Doan's to keep the kidneys thoroughly active. | Sold by all Chemists and Stores.)

HINTS FOR BREEDERS AND OTHERS. FACTS IN A NUTSHELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

HINTS FOR BREEDERS AND OTHERS. FACTS IN A. NUTSHELL. Failures in poultry farming are generally due to either lack of ex perience, capital, health or aptitude. * * * * Capons, unlike cockerels, are al ways tender and well fleshed at any age. * * * ♦ Fowls are very susceptible to per sonal influence, and at this time . of the year, when both young arid old stock require judicious management to keep them growing and laying, a change of feed or management may throw them off. * * * * Fluids pass along the fowl's ali mentary canal much more rapidly than solids, and a portion will reach the intestines almost immediately after being swallowed. ? » * » Experience, mixed freely with commonsense and zeal for the job, is the lever which turns poultry farming from failure to success. Dirty nests result in dirty eggs, and the same can be said of dirty runs. A hen that comes in from a muddy yard and steps directly into a nest with eggs already in it will stain the lot* » * * * It is not usually po...

I put in nine months there, with only moderate success. But I had a very enjoyable time.

CONSIDER THE IMPORTANCE OF ACCESSORIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 14 March 1930

CONSIDER THE IMPORTANCE OF ACCESSORIES. It v-as Chanel, the well-known feminine ; dress designer, who first stressed the importance of accessories. Only then did we begin to consider them and to realise not only that they are fashion, but that they make it. The knack of associating the cor rect accessories with an ensemble is not easily achieved. It is a simple matter, provided the purse is sufficiently long to put one self into the. hands of an expert who has studied the art and say, 'I want a suit and all the coiTect accessories to accompany it.' But to have to select one's own accessories and to find, more often than not, coveted things priced be vond one's means, and so to have to. be content with next best, is another story. j Yet the woman w:io selects her own accessories under no matter j what, difl^culties,,.. finds: a keener de-i light in the wearing of them than if! would be possible to find if these! thirgs were selected for her. j The woman who would become ac cessory. w...
