The importance of the Convention from the Government point of view, i¡j¡^m fleeted in the attendance of all available Ministers of the Crown, including the Pre- mier. Mr. Theodore is perfectly well aware that the Emu Park decisions may make his uphill fight, with the numbers against liim, still more difficult at the General elec- tion which looms right ahead of him. From now unttl that appeal Mr. Theodore will be immersed in the serious occupation of wooing the country vote and placating the City voters.

My Lady's Toilet. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 16 March 1923

My Lady's Toilet I In the elegant days of the 18 th Century, my lady's toilet was a lengthy affair. This was chiefly due to the elaborate coiffures then in vogue. Sut the beauties of that period were famous for their sbrilliant complexions and graceful figures, and the following simple recipes, some old-fash- ioned, some modern, may not come amiss to my lady of the-20th Century. THE ETERNATj FEMININE. Host women will suiter anything in order to improve their looks. In order to keep her complexion in Its pristine freshness, rhe 18th Century "belle" subjected herself to a most painful "skimming" process, whereby the old skin was peeled off with carbolic, leaving the new skin underneath exposed.
