WIMMERA- MALLEE WATER SUPPLY. Report by Commission. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 December 1915

WIMMERA - MALLEE WATER SUPPLY. Report by Commission. The tenth annual report of the State Rivers and Water Supp'.y Commission contains the following : The severe drought conditions which prevailed during the whole of the year strained the water resources very heavily generally throughout the State, but very much less in the Wimmera-Mallee areas than in many other parts, chiefly on account of the extensive and valuable local storages, which had been provided by the Commission at all the district centres to meet such an emergency. Consequently, most Wimmera and Malice towns had ample supplies for all purposes during last summer. Works of "ill kinds were vigorously pushed on, a sum of ,£85,000 hav ing been spent upon them during the year. These works, while ne cessary in themselves, did much to provide employment for settlers suf fering from the effectsof the drought. The main supply channel system is now so well advanced that it should be completed early in the coming year. Particular...

News of Feminine Interest. How Woman may Become Graceful. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 December 1915

News of Feminine Interest. How Woman may Bocomo Gracoful. Aside from all questions of clean liness, everyone should bathe from top to toe every dly for the sake of health and tne beautifying effect upon the skin. You cannot be really line in appearance without the daily tubbing, and its effects are not upon the body only, but upon the mind, lor it improves one's spirits and adds to self-appreciation. The tepiil or warm bath is best, to be followed by a dash of cold, but in cold weather the cold dash should be omitted. llxtreme hot or cold water is not helpful to the com plexion, but the lavished use ot tempered water is absolutely essen tial. Brushes, sponges, bath bays, and home-mixed toilet waters are good anil very pleasant, but splen did results can be obtained with pure soap, water, and your own lily white hands. Keep the hands very busy ; massage the body during tin bath and after drying, particularly if you arc inclined to get flesh. Take a dav and exercise afterwards and you...

Ladies' Column. Summer Millinery. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 December 1915

Ladies' Column. Summer Millinery. (By Rosaland). One little bowl shape was par ticularly attractive. It was cor nered with violet suede, and the trimming consisted of picat ribbon iu the same shade of violet. One of these bows was placed directly in front of the toque, the other at the back. Another smart model was cornered with white chamoisS and trimmed with white taffetas bows which were bordered with white porcelain heads. The foliage cap is another favorite at present and exceedingly smart was the little shape I noted. It was just a shapelj mass of glossy green leaves and here and there were dull pink-shaded roses. And among all the small brimless hats, toques, ca;ts and sailor shapes there were several picture hats for midsummer wear. One was a really lovely picture hat. The brim was semi-transparent and covered with shell-pink inousseline de soie and silk of the same shade. The soft crown was made entirely of pink silk and for trimming there was an exquisite silk and velvet r...
