THE HOUSEHOLD. WOMEN AND WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

S.-'-THE. HOUSEHOiri-L i WOMEN AND W.ORK: ."lHave you -.ever n6ticed.,Athat the' ave rage housewife ages more rapidly'and loses her rood looks earlier ' in life :thin: the business woman?" asked the Social.Philo sopher. "Thera is 'reasofable explanation, for this," she continued.. 'The housewife dobs not look upon her occupation as a protes sion in which she should -.become proficient.. In many cases she considers her work- 'a bore and hardship. The blusiness woman is constantly becoming trained in efficiency. She learns the value of conserved forces. She wastes neither strength nor brain ef-' fort. Every move, every . step, .every thought must count. When housekeepers take up the study of scientific .management and practical economy of labor, they'll have more time for the pastime of keep ing yo0mg."

THE NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

THE NURSERY. Many children at the bad teething time-that is, just about a year old-suffer from constipra. tion. An excellelit way of dealing withh this dliflculty withotr recsurse to medicine is to put a des-crt spoonful of prune juice into the early morning milk. The combined effects of fruit juice and sugar form an ideal laxative for a yourig child. Usct Ialf a pound of best French plums, add two tablespoonfuls of Demaamma sugai-, and gently stew for a 'coupleof hours in an'earthenware jar with just enough water to cover. SThis makes sufficienlt syrup for several days. It 'must, of. course, be'stfained through muslin, and ,has the best effect when taken wanr. If baby is tiresome . about drinking plain milk--and many children are when first taken off the bottle-the syrup can be added to bread and inilk or groats, but in this case a little more will be. needed. - WAS"1' ? This is not only.nice, but economical, as it uses up stale bread. Grate enough stale pieces to make a big braok ...

HE L :H K?0TES. THE CARE OF THE EYES. These days of numerous oculists, and of the ever. present glasses, speak for themselves. Thev porit to the fact that in times gone by the care of the eyesight has heein 'smost criminally neglected, and this genieracion is paying the price, Why, there is scarcely a family in the land where one or more children are not obliged to wear glasses. This is-bad, for itseemts ouit of Nature'6 plan. But far.?norse than: this:is the knowledge that crowds of youthful- fellow .:creatures who ought to be wearing thdse' artificial tblids to their over-used: or neglected' sight are, either from the ignorance, thoughtlessness or culpable carelessness of their parents, not doing so. Fortunately, due- to Government medical in spectioin, the. eyesight of school children is now being professionally oonidered, and stifferers are skilfully treated.

DRAMATIC NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

: DRAMATIC NOTES. The Fofty Thieves at Her Majesty's is doing well, and -the pantomime season may now be considered as in full swing. . -So popular is the pantomime extrava ganza that the King's Theatre has not been able to hold all who desired to see the enitertainment. The Land of Nod is played with a finish and swing, and the numerbus musical numbers never fail to get encores. Several novelties have been added, and have been appreciated by the large audiences. Many people who have seen The Land iof-Nbd at the King's 'Theatre are puzzled by a little green eletric l:ght which swings in . front of the conductor, Mr. Don Mathews. One gentleman approached Mr. 'Anderson the other day, and asked what the object Was in having a light there ? The' explanation is that the light 'forms the point of the conductor's baton. Mr. Matliews -has two batons, and the illumin at6d one is not used until well on in the first act, or perhaps not until the second' It is an interesting novelty, and one th...

LIVERISHNESS. THE JOY-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

THIE JO Y-KIiLLER. Liverishness is a joy-killer, a smil2 banisher. When a nman has a "liver," ihe feels niore like hitting the other fellow in the eye, rather than slapping him on the back and shouting, "How are you, old boy'?" As has been.well said, liverishness distils bad temper as surely as the sun dispels the morning mist. It is so! A few doses of a time-proved stomabh and liver corrective and tonic such as Mother Seigcl's Syrup is generally all tha is needed to ensure thle regularand even flow of bile so necessary to the perfect digestion of food and- the regular daily action of the bowels. It is a simple matter to talke thirty drops of Mother Seigel's Syrup in a little watei whenever you feel the tendency to liverish ness or have partaken heartily of food that is liable to disagree with you; yet thou sands of people avoid the conseqlences of biliousness and indigestion in Just this simple way. smlr. . ce, of MIakerston-street, Bris bane, Queenland, writing on 5th April, 1913,...

Nowithstanding these disadvantages, and also the fact that the paddock was very rough when the seed was sown, I do nof think one grain of the seed has missed; it is astonishing to me.

FARM BOOKKEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

FARM BOOXKEEPINC. Farmers, as a very genera, rule, make no attempt at systematiia bookkeeping. While they know in a general sort of way what has :been the total income and ex penditure of the farm, t;here is a strange 'want of knowledge as to important details. For this reason there are many anomalies noticeable in our rural distrticts. One comes across fanms in -'which a relatively small area provides the great proportion of ·the annual revenue. A proper system of accountancy wcould at' once suggest the wisdom of disposing of the areas ~that do not pay, and of Concerentrating improve ments on the pnrtions :which are income earning. Ini a 2naority of instances mnixed farming is practised, and generally speak ing there is no more profitable form of ag riculture. While the stock and the crops are to som? degree complementary of one another, it is not a difficult matter to differentiate the financial obenefits of each.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914

ACRIULTURAL OTES. The official summary .of weather condi tions for the week shows a very rapid translation of the pressure systems affect ing the southern parts of the continent. The symmetrical "high" which lay over the Bight has suffered considerable loss of energy, and, moving easbward has become degraded to an irregular relatively high area, with centres of maximum pressure over Gippsland and Eyre's Peninsula. The Antarctic "low" has moved from the east -coast to southern New Zealand and its passage has caused a northward contrac tion of the "high" lying off the Queensland coast. In tropical regions the monsoonal low area 'contracted, but it extended further southward later. The tropical dip whicli brought some rain in the. Kim, berleys has moved down the north-west coast, and further rain, associated with thundler, fell over the central and southern gold fields. Similarly, precipitation was recorded between the Darlings Downs, Queensland, and Neeicastle, N.S.W. The tempIerature...
