ELECTRICITY IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
eleu;r-city in the home.. One of the pioneers of the science of doing housework electrically was a French engineer, M. Knapp, and partr iy as a pastime, partly to show what really could be done by elec iricity, he built a house ior himself i»j the town of Troyes, in which he ?!zbausted his ingenuity in making :bat servant do as much as possible -?? the work of the ordinary dorr.ss ic. He was one of the first people to have his boots cleaned by electri 'ity, his clothes brushed, his shaving and bath water heated, and his food cooked by electricity; and he also made e^ctricity his footman and his butler.

A FAULTY TRAP LANDLADY AS AMATEUR DETECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
A FAULTY TRAP LANDLADY AS AMATEUR DETECTIVE. How a woman attempted to play the part of amateur detective, but failed to trap her quarry, was recently told at Tower Bridge Police Court, London. Frederick Arthur Tounger was charged with stealing £2, the money of Mrs. Emily Clark, from a bedroom at tlie same address. Mrs. Clark said Tounger was a lodger. For some time she had missed money from a purse which she secreted in her bed when she left tbe house. In the hope that the thief inijrht be betrayed by footprints, Mio strewed the spot inside her door with soot and later found foot-marks leading to her bed, and jailed the po lice. Sheadmitted she missed no money that day, because she inadvertently took her purse with her. DetectiveSer geant Terry said he found Tounger's iieel marks corresponded exactly with i those in the bedroom. Mr. Tassell ' said he could not conviet on the heel marks alone, as nothing had been stolen on the day they were found -so Tounger was discharged.
PRICES PAID FOR PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
PRICES PAID FOR PETS. It is true that one half of the world has no knowledge of how the other half exists. Many people make nice little sums from peculiar trades, and one of the strangest of these perhaps is the animal mart. Here numberless wild beasts are tamed, and soli to subscribers at prices hitherto undreamed of. Like all produce brought from across tbe seas, animals are costly owing to the high freightage. I bad occasion recently to be down in the vicinity of the docks on bus iness, and in an unpretentiouslook ing street, in a certainly unprepos sessing neighbourhood, shops of this kind abound. I popped into one of these dingy establishments, curious to know the price of some of the strange animals on view in the windows. The result of my search was surprising, and dis tinctly humorous. Profiteering has dealt hardly with the animal trade. Baptista from Italy now pays three times as much as formerly for his barrel-organ fa vourite — sixty silver shillings being the price deman...

MOTOR CARS BIG INCREASE IN N.S.W. Still the number of motor vehicles increases. On 30th June there were 209,659 in Xew South Wales, writes the Sydney corespondent .of the Melbourne ' ' Age. ' ' Some people must havo more than their share, for there are quite a lot of people who have one who cannot .afford the upkeep. The petrol bill for the Stale runs into about £7,(K»n,-J00 a year. It is getting almost as big as the drink bill, and if the good oil is not struck soon politicians, are sure to find in this expenditure . ?either grounds for a sumptuary law or a means of extorting excise. Already , serious questions are being asked con cerning the cstafclislimrnt of service stations, which are taking the place «f hotels oa the chief corners of thn ! suburbs.- They glow with talking lights, and seem never to sleep. Some people arc seeking to bring them under tlie oarly-elosing act ,for some reason i»V-t known to themselves. They want to know how it is that if hotels close at 6 o'clock, w...

Leoation despatches from Hankow in dieate the growth there of en explosive situation, somewhat like the jeme with which the British were faced in 1927.

The Chinese are demanding the witu drawal of the Japanese naval forces, and the return of the concession t*r China.

In the ornamental gardens.' built in- these last five years by Italian engineers, the Af ghan military band plays one tune, over and over again. The fountains fling water high in tae air, catching the last rays of the sub. as it sinks behind the grim bills, and the strollers, in the gar den lounge contentedly amid the myriad delights of this strip of civilisation in the middle of one of the world's most uncivilised countries.
