"If we never v.*ent anywhere else the re ception given us at* Sydney would be suffi cient recompense for the long journey," said Mr John M'Craw, "and the way the Aus tralians play baseball surprises me." .

MOVE THE CARPET [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

MOVE THE CARPET Every now and then, instead of al lowing the stair carpet to remain iri. exactly the same position as first placed, the tread of the carpet should be moved a couple of inches or so either up or down. This has the effect of keeping "the pile of thfe carpet in a uniform condition, and, besides retain ing the fresh appearance of the carpet, it helps it to last much longer than it would if left exactly as laid. It costs nothing to do this, but saves much. "Many housewives dislike to cleaning carpets. This discovery may make it easier. Get one ounce of wormwood salt from the druggist, put it into a pail of warm water, then wash your, carpet as you would a floor, or -if very dirty scrub it. You will find when finished all the dirt and grease spots- have disappeared and the carpet looks equal to new.
