CATS ARE TOO CLEVER. Amazing True Stories About Other People's Pets— And a Rather "Fishy" Tale. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
Cats are too clever.! i Amazing True Stories About Other People's Pets— And a Rather 'Fishy' Tale. . Everyone who visits ttie circus, comes away with one main im pression — admiration For the I cleverness of the performing animals. And we no longer feel ! afraid thai cruelty has played . j any part in their training — ; the j animals show too clearly, that V they enjoy doing their tricks. j But why should we reel surprised at the cleverness of the circus ani-j / nrals? Why - should . we exclaim:i 'You'd almost believe that they, could think?' If we paid even the. slightest attention to our own pets;1 7 or. other people's, we would realise, that animals do think. I Most dog-lovers will tell stories of ; their dogs in support of this idea, but, as a general rule, cats are more clever than dog's. Officials at . cat shows know this to their cost, be-] cause cats resent these functions, i and one 01* two oi them always man- j age to escape, 'Home, Sweet Home.' j This happened last month ...

WORTH KNOWING. Repair for Broken Kettle. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
WORTH KNOWING. Repair for Broken Kettle. A contribulor writes: — 'Some time ago there was a request from a correspondent for directions for re pairing a broken kettle. I had a cast iron kettle which was cracked from the bottom to the shoulder, around the junction of the spout. I put a heated hoopiron band around the j kettle, top and bottom, and filled the crack with iron cement obtained irom a hardward store. I have since had many years' service from the' kettle; it has been recemented more than once.' — Flatiron Rest. Select a smooth piece of board an inch thick and at-out 10 in. square. Bevel the edges with a plane and mark into halves. Over one half stretch a piece of fine sandpaper on which to rub the foot of the iron, and over the other fasten a piepe of tin. Tack both down smoothly, and if they extend over the edges of the board they may be secured by nar row laths tacked around the edges for a finish. This makes a useful , rest for the ordinary flat iron. Sand paper should n...
USEFUL HINTS BOTTLE HYGIENE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
USEFUL HINTS £ BOTTLE HYGIENE. V A mother cannot be too. careful in protecting ! ba^v's bot4'e and milk these hot days. I always make up the required quantity of milk for tHfc whale day, and when boiled put straight aw^V i-fn a coH snace. Then after I feed baby eadti time, I boil his bottle and all utensils required in preparing it, for at least 10 minutes. In readiness I have a covered bowl, full i-f water (which has been boiled) with a little carb soda in it, into which I pop everything, and they are well, covered and free from all germs. I do this after every feed. I have seen some mothers just take up the bottle and utensils from M nearby table cr shelf and scald them, thinking that everything is quite safe; but if a germ, especially frqm flies, happens. to come in contact with his bottle it would take at least 10 min* utes' boiling before that germ would be killed. FOR DRY HAIR. I feel I should send this hint along, as my r'dest girl's hair and scalp was very dry. The m-r» 1 hr...

TUCK-IN BLOUSES. VERY POPULAR IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
TUCK-IN BLOUSES. I VERY POPULAR IN PARIS. Tuck-ln blouses are expected to figure largely in the wardrobes this coming season. No longer do they merely complement a costume. In fact, with the new dress styles they are often the leading item. Three models are expected to have a vague, one for wear with the separate skirt, another to go with the cardigan tvpe of suit, and the third the regular. suit blouse, which is much on the order! of a dress. The middle types ofi course, are still with us, with new details, that lend a more feminine! note and yet do not sacrifice practi-l cality. New Collar. A blouse for wear with saparate skirts or simple two-piece suits comes with a new collar, which is about 4 inches wide and rolls over. The ends are cut straight, and, where they would ordinarily meet there is a space that is filled with a perky bow tie of the material. The opening is in front, made with a box pleat with' ipearl buttons. The edges of the pleat are left unstitched, giving a soft ...
Amateur Poultrymen. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
Amateur Poultrymen. i We all have to pass through the novice stage, and whether this is long or short depends on our capa bilities and opportunities. Experi ence bought first-hand is probably the best teacher. There is no royal road to success. Even experienced poultry farmers have setbacks. One of the first essentials is a dogged de sire to go on, in spite of losses, and to profit by failures.
RECOGNISED COLOR STANDARDS MARKINGS OF BROWN LEGHORNS [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
RECOGNISED COLOR STANDARDS MARKINGS OF BROWN LEGHORNS Quite a lot has been said and done' lately by different clubs, both in Queensland and New South Wales,! in regard to the Ixing of the correct, colors and markings of the Brown j Leghorn (says 'Brownie' in a great j issue of 'Poultry'). He agrees thati al should try to breed to a uniform! color in both males and females, but: then the fun starts. How many of T onVinrn illdtvPR Would take any notice of what this club or that club has done in regard to thej fixing of .a color standard? They have their own ideas and idea's, and it is a safe bet to say that 57 per cent, would never budge from the old ideas, no matter what what was said or done. j Swayed by Judge. \ i I ^ 'Recently a well-known, respected I judge (both States seek his services | yearly) gave first- — and eventually j it got champion of show — to a dark, i brick-red cockerel, like the Yankee | style, totally unlike the recognised coloi*, but still that judge's ideal.

Ducks and Lights. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
Ducks and Lights. Ducks are very nervous of lights, either on car, sulky, or carried by hand, passing by their runs. So, if possible, build the duck yards right away from a road and never go into their yards at night carrying a lan tern. It is worth while to have a hur ricane lamp hung up alight all nightf in the yards if there are many ducks, j
When Hens are Sterile, [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
i When Hens are Sterile, Sometimes all the eggs produced by a certain hen are sterile or infer tile, and this is probably owing to one of two reasons; an inflammation of the oviduct, causing acid reactions fatal to the spermatozoa; a dislike taken by the male to the particular hen. If the latter is noticed the hen should be removed at once from the breeding pen.
BOOK REVIEW A QUEER TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
BOOK REVIEW ? J A QUEER TALE. In the Shadow (Elfein Mathews and Marrot) is the third of Tod Rob-j bins' queer books to be published in' this couiitry, the others beins: Who Wants a Green Bottle? and The Un holy Three. The last of these gave its American author a certain mea sure of fame during the war, and Lon Chaney, inciden billy, his first chance when it was filmed. It is a striking affair,! grotesque and fantastic, which1 perhaps scarcely received its due when republished here last year by Victor Gollancz, though for all I know it has one of those slow, steady sales usually the lot of books not of the purely ephemeral order. I hope so, at any! rate, for Tod Robbins, although not; first-rate, is distinctly a novelist who) counts. | Above .all, he is not stereotyped, j Each novel is individual, different) from any other. This quality is es-j pecially pronounced in the book un-i der review, which may come asj something of a surprise to those whoi have read only The Unholy Three. | ...
THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
THE BOOK LOVER A strange publishing institution was the three-volume novel, seldom seen nowadays even in old collec tions. Usually it was much 'padded' in writing and printing. A London book delver recalls that three-volume romances survived till 1894. Jt is claimed that the publisher, William Heinemann and the novelist Hall Caine were pioneers in the movement to abolish the 'three-decker.' Books I bv Caine were published by Heine Imann in one volume at 16/, instead of in three volumes at 10/6 each. Many other authors and publishers followed the example, and soon the 'three-decker' was no more. 'John o' London's Weeklv,' with jthe publishers' tacit consent, says ithat 'Private 19022,' the anonym ious author of 'Her Privates We,' ! described as the sanest and truest ! war book yet published, is Mr. Fre iderick Manning, who was born in | Sydney. Mr. Manning has had to live in the mountains near Vienna for his health's' sake since the war. 1 1 .. ? ? ± 4.;. r1 .-1 ? ? I .. i 4' w in t ...

MODERN CHEMIST CONTEMPTUOUS. CONTENDS DANTE'S INFERNO [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930
MODERN CHEMIST CONTEMPTUOUS. CONTENDS DANTE'S INFERNO I From certain standpoints the modern chemist is highly con temptuous of Dante's Inferno. Professor Martin Meyer, of New York, declares that early writers who wished to depict a horrible Hades, and thus frighten the common herd into better morals, would doubtless have used with avidity the modern scientist s ! knowledge of heat and cold. - Until recently very little has been popularly known about chemistry. Despite the dramatic horrors of the World War and later widely adver-. tir.ed discoveries of tremendous busi-' ness importance, the word 'chenrist'i still evokes mental images of the owner of the corner drug store. A1-; though the realm of chemistry is one! of the most fascinating and absorb-! ing fields of human thought, one can as a rule obtain little general atten-j tion to it. It has had, so to speaK, no 'sex appeal.' Within the last thirty years che mical knowledge has grown like a snowball rolling downhill, until the che...

FILMLAND. '?? The most interesting picture wai'd lfpbe of Gloria Swanson's career, a career in which gorgeous clothes have played an important part tra-l ditionally, was assembled by thej producer-star for 'The Trespasser,'] her new United Artists' talking and ! singing picture. Favored with a role' wnich offers exceptional dramatic possibilities, and an opportunity to: appear again- in 'Fine Feathers,'] Miss Swanson has given the matter j of clothes particular attention.
