SUGGESTIONS FOR THE HOME COOL HOUSES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

COOL HOUSES ^ Australian housewives . are always ■: glad to hear of any device that will - enable them to keep the house cool in • summer. One woman rWho has ;liyed iii the Ea-st many years finds an effectual method of cooling the inner atmosphere is. to use a window screen, fashioned '; on the same lines as an Indian "Uittie." ; Make frames as if- they -were-wanted for a window screen. Tack on these enough narrow ' tapes to support a thick bed of grass. Cover with long grass, securing it to the frame by sewing it with t\vine.' Place the frame in a window ..." and keep wet. A "garden syringe is best - for the spraying. These screens are not - ornamental, but if three or four open ' windows are fitted in this manner it will do much toward keeping the house fresh and cool. In South America, to keep rooms cool old sheets or pieces of muslin are kepi wet and hung in doorways that face the breeze. A simpler screen than the "tattie" may be made by using coarse flannel instead of grass, bu...

A TOY SPONGE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

A TOY SPONGE Most babies love their bath: still there are some who never behave well in water. No one has ever discovered the reason why some children (v -t frequently boys) object to being bathed, rue toy sponge illustrated would ""pro bably create a diversion. The celluloid Ioil's head is sunk in the sponge, and l:he string which ties it. on is covered by a frill. The toy cannot fail to please; the good baby deserves it, the naughty one needs it as a good ex ample in the water.

FOR AN EASTER FAIR [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

FOR .AN EASTER FAIK The present holidays ^rill no sooner end than busy workers will be on the look out for novelties for bazaars for fairs at Easter time. A good idea which hails from America is to have a stall arranged for kitchen goods. A large banner covers the top of the front of the stall, upon which "kitchen" is written boldly in knives and forks. Bone handled and strong they must be. They must be firmly sewn to the ban ner. The attendants wear cooking aprons and caps. Once the id^a is established for a kitchen stall work can be planned for execution in the cooler weather. Aprons, dusters, tea towe's. ond clothes bags, cookery book covers and dresser scarves are articles to dis play later, on a clothes line at. the back of the kitchen stall.

HOMELY FARE UTILISING THE PLUM [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

■ HOMEEY FAKE By "HOUSEWIFE." UTILISING THE PLUM The larger sweeter varieties of plum may be eaten safely in their natural state, and the flavor of some of them at least is delicious. For most people, however, the plum, is a fruit greatly improved by cooking. Even then the. tough skin in most cases should be rejected. No fruit makes a richer or more en joyable preserve, and the sweet pickled plums gratify most tastes. In the winter when the shops are almost bare of fruit, the plum preserves are a famous stand-by. Plum sauce adds a flavor to many meat dishes. Plum mould pleases the young folk immensely. Plum mar malade and plum jam are both as popular and as well known as plum jelly. With all that is to be said in its favor, it should be remembered that the plum is to be enjoyed in modera tion and this caution applies even to the rich-flavored old-fashioned dam Bon. There are more reasons than one for giving the recipes included in this week's series." In the 'first place they are ve...
