ECONOMY IN DRESS. A RENOVATING SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

ECONOMY IN DRESS. A RENOVATING SCHEME. To the woman required by cir- j cumstances to strictly economise in: matters or dress, hints 01 renovation j and alterations calculated to bring j a last season frock again into ser vice proye invaluable. Many dresses in good condition and in fashionable color may have been put aside because an increase ! in waist or hip measurement renders! ! them no longer wearable. The new j i modes for winter and earlv spring ; will allow schemes delightfully trans ; forming the general effect and per mitting, too, comfort and conveni-j . ence. j Pleats, inlets, and shaped dde! pieces direct to but a few of the I many means successfully employed in ! the achievement of success. A matron's frock deemed too short for the present mode may be simply lengthened by a straight all-around band in material in a darker shade than that of the frock or in subdued color to contrast. The addition of a flounce, diagonally arranged, willj no less satisfactorily effect the ...

Backyard Green Crop. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

Backyard Green Crop. ! ' ? If you dig up a small portion of an earth run, say, 9ft. long :by 3ft. wide; sow it with oats or barley 5 then protect it with a . frame made of 9in. boards, with a division every 3ft. to. make it firm, and cover it with 2in.l mesh wire-netting — a large number! of fowls can help themselves to the ' green feed when it grows tall enough; without being able to scratch up the plants before they are grown. i 1 ? — j Fowls can be cured of broodiness, according to the late Oscar Smart, by giving them quinine or aconite. A dosage of l grain quinine twice daily, and 1 drop aconite in every hour and a half would be suitable.

BOOK REVIEWS A POET'S FIRST NOVEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

BOOK REVIEWS A POET'S FIRST NOVEL. By R. S. Pippett. It is an old, old story which Rich ard Church has chosen for his first [novel, 'Oliver's Daughter' (Dent). But in the telling it takes on a vivid and enduring strangeness, like sonne familiar house seen suddenly trans-1 figured in the twilight that precedes i a storm. j Jess, the child of a villae-e shon-! i keeper, ivins a scholarship, leaves thome, falls in loVe with a composer of genius, learns, after a year of happy unhappiness, that she has made a terrible mistake, and goes back to her work behind the counter.1 And there, although her father and her child are dead, she slowly loses, the sense of bitterness and waste, of! 'a beautiful material cut to the wrong shape.' Mr. Church, who needs no intro duction to our readers, has written a quiet, live, compelling book. It' arches the gloomy sky like a rain-j cow ; its lamt colors taKe on a deeper glow against the dark. The dialogue] may sometimes be naive, the situa-: tions someti...

A qOick remedy. Pioric acid and tannic acid are both good for burns, but as these are not always avail able when an accident happens, I thought 1 would pass on this hint. Just plunge the affecr ted part into cold water and hold it there until the sting has gone, then wrap it up to ex clude the air. A few minutes will suffice for a slight burn, as in the case cf a child touch ing a stove or upsetting the teapot. If the scald is extensive it may take a little while for the sting to go out after this treatment. There will be no pain and no blister or scar. j

THE ETERNAL HAIR QUESTION. LONG HAIR A FAILURE, SAYS PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

THE ETERNAL HAIR QUESTION. LONG HAIR A FAILURE, SAYS PARIS. Just when we had Tiegc: to grow . more hair again to be more suit ed to the more feminine type of clothes, comes word from Paris that the Vogue for long hair is a failure. Parisians, it is said, are once more submitting to the hair dresser's'- scissor, mainly because ' the very *mall .hats being worn will permit of no coils of hair ! beneath 6'iem. I ?Always it would seem there will be a controversy over the length of Eve's hairi arid the fashionable length is, iti a way, a question that is never directly answered. As a matter of fact the only time when we could all feel ' certain _ that we were wearing our hair the jfash ionable length was whe» th«s bob held sway. When the shingle put the bob in the shad a many women began grow ing their hair and knotting it -low upon the head. Although, be is known, the majority failed to get the hair long enough to knot suffi ciently low to give a graceful and pleasing effect. At that pe...

IS NIGHTMARCH A TRUE STAYER ? HIS GREAT PACE HELPED IN MELBOURNE CUP. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

IS NIGHTMARCH A TRUE STAYER ? HIS GREAT PACE HELPED IN MELBOURNE CUP. It is unusual to hear it contended that the winner of a Melbourne Clip and a Randwick Cup and a Randwick Plate has not proved himself a true stayer, but doubt has been expressed; concerning Nightmarch. I Nor is the idea quite as absurd as at first might be thought. Night march was beaten by Loquacious in; the Metropolitan after appearing a winner, But, with his big weight. I failure was excusable. He ran a great race with much more weight than any fourryear-old had previously carried into a place in that race. In the Randwick. Plate, however. Reed certainly rode him for speed, waiting until the final half-mile, and then settling the opposition with a sharp dash. The first mile of the Melbourne ^ Cup was so slowly run that Night march was able to *triavel at his' ^ase, and that enabled him to turn his proved great pace to full advantage in the last mile. Over the concluding furlong 'he lost his opponents, and, as s...
