A WOMAN'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
, A WOMAN'S LETTER. My dear Elizabeth,—Last week I promised you an account of my trip round the sales, and a description of the wonderful bargains I secured. I will be quite candid, and tell you I did not find any bargains, though many things seem very cheap. The thing I have seen this week that I liked the most was a very wide thisk China matting, well covered in a pattern of dark green. It was so strong and pretty, I could not help thinking what a nice sitting room floor covering it would make. It was fair ly cheap, too, 1/11 a yard. In two rooms I know of, a matting has been down for nearly two years, the rooms are constantly used, and get remarkably hard wear, but the matting 1s still going strong and look ing very well, there is not a crack in it, neither hag it faded. It was only a cheap one, as I got it at one of the midwinter sales for 6d a yard. Many people have a great objection to mattiug, thinking it is so hard to keep clean, but really It is not. The hardest thing about...
SWEATING AT MUDGEE HOSPITAL [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
SWEATING AT MUDGEE HOSPITAL Mudgee hospital takes the whole confectionery shop for trouble. At the present moment several members are moving in the matter of an increase of wages paid to the matron and staff. They say that Ihe system of wage pay ing savors very much of sweating. A notice of motion has been lodged to give more remuneration to each em ployee, and will receive consideration at the next meeting. The action on the part of the committeemen responsible is a very laudable one, and to 1 commended, as there Is no one more worthy of her litre than the nurse, whose hours are long and tedious, and I who receives no pay for overtime, but stoically and heroically performs her arduous duties without complaint from year's end to year's end. And it is only right and fair that her services should he valued at a fair rate of wage over that of the ordinary domes tic.
