LIBRARY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927
... _ _ _ _ _ _ _ LIBRARY NOTES. The first meeting of the Library Committee in thc new year was marked by the keenness of members generally to make the ensuing year a more successful one than last. To begin with, a plain and fancy dress ball, is to be held at the Causeway Hall on the 11th of March next in aid of the funds. The Com mittee does not make a point of hoarding funds, but every available penny resulting from subscriptions, donations, or entertain ments, is voted for the purchasing of reading matter. It is pleasing to note that one hundred and twenty (120) additional works will be added this month, and, as usual, they consist of an assortment providing reading for all classes. It is hoped to be able to purchase poetical works of the Celebrities, a few at a time, as funds permit. Up till now it has been more advantageous to purchase novels, and since the Library is becoming well stocked it is con sidered that the time is opportune to obtain some poetical works. Members who h...

Mortlock, D.M.E., Robertson, D.D.M., and W. M. Hawkins, District Secretary. Bro. Hiland, as N.G., introduced and welcomed the District Officers to Canberra. In replying to the welcome, Bro. Mortlock, D.M., said it was not his first visit to Can berra, and he trusted it would not be his last. He likened the Order to a tree which sent out branches in every direction, and said that a seed dropped in the Federal Territory was now bearing fruit in the shape of this Lodge. Bro. Robertson replied very briefly, thank ing the members for the warmth and cordiality with which he and his Brother Officers had been received. Bro. Hawkins, District Secretary, thought that he had more to say than the previous speakers. As Secretary of the Goulburn Dis trict Council it was necessary for him to have a full knowledge of the standing of t...
HEALTH NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927
HEALTH NOTES. (By "Sister.") The subject of the previous "Health Notes'' was the relief of pain and inflammation by cold local applications. When treating acute inflammation our object in the earliest stage, i.e., that of congestion, is to try and lessen the progress of thc inflam mation. We are more likely to do this by cold than by hot applications, owing to the effect which cold has in lessening the supply of blood to the affected part. That is why iced compresses and evaporating lotions are so good in the early treatment of sprains. In the second stage the inflammation has already begun and we want to bring it to a finish as quickly as possible, to prevent pus forming. This is the time when either hot or cold applications may be used, for, while cold lessens the supply of blood to the injured part, heat dilates the blood vessels, brings more blood to the injury, and brings with that in creased blood supply antibodies, which are the enemies of germs, and help to kill them off. Th...

BAND NOTES. EXCELLENT PRÔGBESS MADE. The Band has started the New Year with a strong combination of both players and execu tive officers. Under the baton of itl new conductor, L|f L.

HOTEL AINSLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927
HOTEL AINSLIE. The close of the Foundation Day holiday was marked at the Hotel Ainslie by a scene of revelry. A party of very young men arrived in sec tions from the Bachelor's Quarters. The event being well stage-managed from the start-an effective display of lighting from the porch brightened proceedings from 8 p.m. until the fashionable hour for arrival was at hand.

Dance items were contributed by Mrs. New man, and Mr. Copeland a waltz or two, and both acted as accompanists. Some games were introduced, one in particular being entered into with great zest by both young men and maidens! Thanks due to Mr. Edison's records were overlooked in the M.C.'s graceful acknow ledgments.

HOME NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 February 1927
HOME NOTES. By "Mona," Sandwiches are always a dainty addition to the afternoon tea, and during the hot weather nothing is more tempting than dainty fresh sandwiches. If the butter is hard it can very easily be creamed by adding a spoonful of very hot water, about one. tablespoon of hot water to every quarter lb. of butter, and mixing with the blade of a knife until it is smooth and easily spread. If the sandwiches are not to be used for some time, allow them to stand in a pile and wrap lettuce leaves around them, or a piece of clean cheese cloth or butter muslin, wrung tightly out of hot water, may be used instead. The following are some dainty recipes for sandwich fillings and may be used with either brown or white bread: EGG AND MAYONNAISE FILLINÇL Chop the whites of hard-boiled eggs finely and mash up the yolks finely with a fork; mix together, season with salt and pepper and moisten with a rich salad dressing. SARDINE AND EGG FILLING.-Remove skin and bones from sardines and mas...

OUR LETTER BAG. # - THE MAY FESTIVITIES.-SOME SUGGESTIONS. (To the Editor.) Sir,-As I understand that the Commis sioners are overworked in trying to devise " a proper initiatory for the reception of His Grace the Duke of York and his Dukess, and the proper carrying out of the programme en trusted to them, I hasten to offer my services to relieve them of their arduous task, and I feel sure when I have placed al their disposal the wide experience I have hid in dealing with Royalty, they will join the Optimists' Club, Of course I 'rn naturally modest, but it hi patent to all who look at me that I have always been used to dealing with Royalty. I will recall some of my earlier experiences with royal lines, ©ne of the first kings I met was descended from such a long line of ancestors that his genealogical tree was lost in the mists of antiquityw-or a bush fire. Anyway, his name was Yargueecoacocaine-quite a regal sound about that-and his throne at the date of which I write was an ornament...
