KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 16 November 1917

KITCHEN WRINKLES. If paint on glass is washed with hot vinegar it will come off. If when mending kid gloves you draw the' tear or rip together with a button-hole stitch it makes a much nicer flinish and is not so noticeable. To prevent mould from forming on top of the liquid in which pickles are kept, put in a few pieces of horse radish root. The peel of a lemon or an orange, dried thoroughly and placed in the tea caddy, will greatly improve the taste and aroma of the tea. When the steel fittings on a stove have become brown from the heat, rub them with a rag dipped in vine guar before cleaning in the usual way. Suet puddings are lighter and morq digestible if made of half flour and half broad-crumbs. It is a good way of using up stale bread, and reduces the flour bill. When marking linen with indelible ink, first write the name with a lead pencil, then write over the pencil with the marking ink. The pencil pre vents the ink from spreading. .If when making soup or beef-tea for an in...

LILYDALE OR LILLYDALE. -o-. TO THRW DITOR OP TaE AIeVRTICeR. Sir,-A difference of opinion has existed: for years as to the proper spelling of the name of this town. It is noticeable that. one leading Melbourne paper spells it non way and the other paper persistently adiheres. to its own way. t'hose who favour" Lily. dale" say that the town was called after Lily, the wife of Hubert or Paul de Castella, who was one of the first to pro duce wine there. But a?r J, G Santon, of the Crown Law Department, says. in hi,. book, " Place Names of Victoria," that the township was named by John Ilarie, who surveyed the township, Lillydale. from a. song which was all the rago at that time, called " Lilly Dale." composed by Henry Claywork. Some o'cldal Government docu ments spell it Lillydale. yet the Railway Station is called Lilydaloe. Which is. correct ? J. C. IIARVIE. Christmas Hills, Nov., 1917.
