USEFUL HINTS [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 5 February 1914
USEFUL HINTS -4t-- Specl(s on .the back of thle glass of an overmantel are most frequently caused by Plight damlness in tile wall. When lix ine overmantel take an ordinary cork, about !tin., or esightly larger, in diameter, and cut into four slices about tin thick. Tack these with one small tack each to the four corners of the back of the over muantel, when they will keep the glass just far enough away from the wall to unsure a passage of air and so prevent the damp from causing specks. When mixing beeswax and turpentine to clean furniture or polish floors add one small piece of ?tnlphor to half a pint of turpentine. This cleanses the dirt from tIle article and produces a brilliant polish with little labour. Furniture polish has little or no effect upon bamboo, but if tlhe dirt is well cleaned off with a damp cloth, and when thoroughly dry a coating of perfectly clear varllishl is given, tihe result will be found su rlprisltg.

STEEL-FRAMED HOUSE AT ESSENDON. &nbsp; A house built with a jointed steel frame is the last ingenious invention in the building trade. The idea em- anates from the firm of J. and T. Muir, engineers, of North Melbourne, and they have formed the Steelcrete Build- ing Company, which is proceeding in a practical manner to carry out its scheme by erecting a house at Pascoe Crescent, Essendon. The building has been planned by Mr. L. M. Perrott, architect, of 271 Collins street, who is supervising the construction. The steel studs and stanchions are bedded securely upon the concrete foundations, and are braced by holed crossbars which are dropped into position over the studs. The templates are locked on by means of mortised ends as seen in iron bed rails. The window sashes and door frames are fitted by the same device. One of the principal features is that the whole structure is erected without screws or bolts. When the frame is complete timber concrete moulds are employed to cover...
