HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 February 1923

HOUSElIOLD HINTS. To make over-salted soup palatable add one lump of sugar to every pine. Always turn a steak by passing a knife under it. Never put a fork in to it. Clothes 1rgs will last longer if they are boiled for ten minutes when new. 'The lightness of batter puddings will be improved if two teaspoonfuls of ground rice are added to the flour before mixing. Sandpaper the soles. of children's new shoes before they are worn. This prevents them from slipping oni poll ished floors. A quarter 'of an ounce of Epsom salts added to a quart of water makes an excellent rinsing mixture for coloured blouses and washing dresses. A copper will not rust if it is coat-. ed with soft, soap after the water is emptied. The soap makes the next lot of water "soft and ready for use. Strains are caused by stretching the muscles or tendons inl severe ex ertion. Apply hot fomentations as soon as possible. Absolute rest is necessary if a speedy cure is desired. "A use for over-boiled potatoes is to plac...

WINGED VETERANS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 February 1923

WIfIGED VETERANS. • sparrows have been known to live for forty years, so no wonder some of eur sparrows -are knowing little (i?tlhvs, because they are guite ?*grown up." ,, A horse does inot' live much more than twenty-seven years, and if hard worked would probably not live as long as that. Tike tortoise is supposed to live to be anything between 300 and 400 years old. Some people say toads can live for ever, but, of course, that has not been proved, though certainly they live to-a great age. Both an eagle and a crow have been known to live to be 100, but the poor -little 'ren- nld" ; ' liWves ablout three years. An elephant's lifetime lasts about 100 years, and he isn't considered grown up until .he is about twenty fi years old.

Cricket. ELFHAM DISTRICT ICRICKET ASSOCIATION. Eltham v.. Montmorency. Montmorency, althoug presumably the weakest team in the competition,. played havoc with the Eltham bowling on Satur day. They have several hard hitters, and they :went for the bowling. Eltham were unfortunate in losing Bircliall and Fitz simons, who both ient out to deliveries that did not -rise. It was clearly Eltham's unlucky day. The home team, with 64 runs to make and five wickets to fall, have a big task in front of them. Watson's 48 not out was a great innings, and full of hard hitting.

HURSTBRIDGDE PROGRESS ASSOCIAT'ioN. SC (Tor the Editor.)nnce. ''Sir,-Your leading article, "Hurst bridge's Civic Pride," deserves .to be read, marked and inwardly digested by every resident of Hurstbridge. Our village is undoubtedly progressing, but you've proved that it also has many drawbacks, and as a man who'has travelled oter a large part of Victoria, I say Hurstbridge is not :progressing as- it should. Districts in which there is a live progrees association, with an energetic committee, and not the'half dead-and-alive aipologies for .progress associations which meet about twice a year, confirm the minutes of the pre vious meeting, pass a few half-hearted motions that only mean their burial in a dust-covered, cob-webbed minute book, and then scamper for home. Progress associations such as the former earn the respect and approval of district residents, andgrow and flourish, and districts where sui' asso ciations exist progress more quickly, and 'to a far greater extent than dis ...

FINNY MONSTERS. America claims to have caught the largest fish on record-an enormous ray harpooned off New Jersey, weigh, ing four tons, and needing six oxen and twenty-two men to ~ drag it .ashore. The battle with the fish lasted nine hours, and it lashed up spray to a height of over 30ft. Allowance must be made for some eiaggeration, but there are on record other cases wjtere gigantic- rays, or devil-fish, have been harpooned. One takeni off Jamaica was'so big that it took forty men to drag it along the beach. Even rays caught in British- -watera are sometimes of gr iia . sio;e, li?e o~ei ti?t was sold in sl?e -fish market at Cambridge. It veighed .2241b., and when cooked and served at.
