Because people simply will not realise how much ill-health originates in constipated bowels, there are Co-Ionics in every walk of life.

They are ignorant of the two most important functions of Nature— digestion of food and elimination of waste matter.

Everything eaten goes

through certain digestive processes in the stomach. It then passes to the small intestines, where the process is completed and all blood forming, tissue building constituents are absorbed into the blood. What is left is refuse matter, which passes into the colon (or large bowel) for complete elimination.

Like all refuse matter this decays rapidly and unless expelled from the bowels within 24 hours, becomes a source of infection to the whole system. At the end of that period, toxic poisons are generated

in this refuse and increase hour by hour. Absorbed by the blood they are carried to every nook and corner of the system and a Co-Ionic condition soon develops.

Chamberlain’s Tablets will prevent these troubles, as constipation can be avoided by taking them occasionally.

When constipation hasbeen allowed to become established and a Co-Ionic condition exists, Chamberlain’s Tablets will prove most valuable and effective in relieving this condition. They will clear out the congested colon and

produce a free movement of the bowels. They will rid the system of these destroying poisons and leave a con sc ious-ness of healthy, internal cleanliness.

Once the system is cleansed of impurities, most people find an occasional dose of Chamberlain’s Tablets all that is necessary to prevent a recurrence of the trouble and keep them in perfect health.

Chamberlain’s Tablets

wonderful in the relief they bring from indigestion, biliousness, sick headache, constipation and similar disorders of the. stomach and bowels.

. They are suitable for young and old, and can be taken regularly without fear of creating “a medicine habit.'’

They strengthen the stomach and bowels and help establish regular and complete elimination.

Preventing Food from Burning.—

Punch a number of holes in a tin pie plate from the inside. 'This leaves all the roughness of the punched holes on the underside, which is placed on the bottom of the saucepan. There will be no danger of scorching or burning food when this plate is put in the pan, because it is impossible to force all the waterfrom under it on account of the numerous holes. This will be found as effective as any factory made article.

Non-Slip Clothes Line Prop.-Saw

nailed in the crotch. This provides two tegs for the pole, and although it allows the clothes line to swing back and forth, there is no lateral sliding and it cannot be dislodged easily.

Windows and Mirrors can be cleaned effectively with a thin cold starch, and wiping off with a soft cloth after being allowed to dry thoroughly. Furniture Polish must not be applied to soiled furniture, or it will never look bright; wring a cloth out of warm, soapy water, wipe the furniture carefully, then polish as usual, ^ when quite dry,

Mother! Always check a cough. Never mind if it is only a slight cough—check it at once. A cough shows a chill has been contracted and that a cold or some bronchial affection is developing.

Bronchitis results from a chill and starts with a cough. Croup’s first warning is hoarseness and a persistent cough. In its first stages, Influenza resembles a cold and is generally accompanied by an irritating cough. The most common form of Pneumonia follows a cold and often heralds itself by a persistent cough.

So before a cough develops into a cold and extends to the danger zone, get right on to it with Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy. You will be surprised how quickly the cold will disappear. Even th.e most obstinate, deep-seated cold or cough will respond to Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy.

Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy is unequalled for the treatment of croup at any stage. In every part of the world mothers of young children rely on this medicine to help them through croup, bronchitis and other bronchial affections to which children are liable.

It so loosens the tough mucus which is a feature of whooping cough, that there are seldom any bad after effects from that disease when Chamberlain’s Cough

Influenza can be avoided in the beginning by the free use of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy. Even if the attack has been allowed to get well established, Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy will prove of the greatest benefit in reducing the fever, relieving the pains in the body and the dry, irritating cough.

With Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy on hand, every mother is prepared to check a cold at any time and avoid complications such as pneumonia. If the cold is checked in the first place it will not get down to the chest.

Cough medicines containing narcotics are injurious to children and a d d 11 s.

They have a constipating effect which is most serious for young children and elderly people.

For that reason, mothers the world over rely on Ch amberlain’s Cough Remedy. It contains only helpful ingredients and is absolutely free from narcotics in any form.

Lubricating Window».—To lubricate the frames of tight fitting windows, shave as much‘paraffin into some turpentine as possible and allow it to stand for a few days. Then apply two or three coats to the window frames with a brush. The turpentine evaporates, leaving a colourless film of paraffin on the frames and the* windows will slide freely. For metal frame windows, melt the paraffin and while hot stir in powdered graphite. Upon cooling, the mixture solidifies, and the cake thus formed is used to rub the frames.

Cleaning the Sink.—Half-fill the sink with water and lay a 1 inch board, as large as is possible, on the water. Stand aside to avoid being splashed and strike the board a few hard taps with a hammer. The result is that the pipe is cleared by the transmission of the shock through the water, which dislodges the obstruction, provided it is not too large to be forced through the pipe.

Ink on the Carpet.—When ink is accidentally spilt on a carpet, table salt should be instantly applied to the spot. The ink is quickly absorbed by,the salt and when the latter is removed by a vacuum cleaner, the spot will be scarcely visible.

Upholstered Chair-Arm Ash Trays.—

Take a piece of silk velvet about 2 inches wide by 1 foot long, and weight the ends by hemming over small strips of lead or iron, heavy enough to balance the tray. Punch two small holes in the bottom of an ash tray and sew it to the velvet.

Dirty Hands.—A useful solvent for cleaning greasy and inky hands can be made by pulverising a cake of sand soap and mixing it with a cup of hot lard. Stir well, and when partly cool, pour into a container. This is an ideal soap for printers, blacksmiths and motor mechanics.

Cleaning Light Silks. — Georgette, crepes, crepe de Chine and other (Continued on next page,)


For the Home. (Continued.)

light silk fabrics that will not stand washing, can be cleaned without injury, by the following method:— Wash the garment in benzine as usual, then rinse in clean benzine, and without wringing, dip two or three times in a pail of clear, soft water, to which has been added 3 or4ozs. of vinegar. Remove quickly, shake out the surplus water and hang the garment where it will dry in a short time—outside in the wind for preference. Do not allow heavy folds to form in the fabric, as the moisture will be retained in these too long. This method will remove sugar and ice cream spots, which benzine alone will not do.

A Simple Insecticide for destroying bed-bugs and similar vermin. Mix half-pint each of kerosene, turpentine and laundry ammonia. Pour into a quart bottle anashake well, then spray or brush on the surfaces where the bugs have been noticed. Two applications are usually sufficient.

Roiling Cover for Outdoor Tables.

To protect the linen tablecloth used on an outdoor table, fasten a piece of

| oilcloth to a spring-blind roller of the ordinary kind and attach it to one side of the table; this can be : pulled across when the table is used. | and tne linen cloth spread over it. The free end of the oilcloth is hemmed over a steel rod, so that the j wind cannot blow it off.

A Clock that won’t work can be used in the sickroom to indicate the next time medicine is to be given, by setting the hands at the proper position.

Muffling the Alarm Clock. —To

awaken the sleeper without disturbing those in adjacent rooms, snap a stout rubber band around the clock and over the bell. Whether the bell is located on top or on the back, it muffles the sound most effectively.

Shellac for Floors.- A good and durable varnish for floors, stairways and other surfaces that are subject to heavy wear is obtained by applying a coat of shellac over the filler coat before using the reg ular varnish. The shellac should not be mixed with the varnish, and if any reducer is required, alcohol should be used. The (Continued aft page 8.)

A New Use for a Well-known


There are few people who do not know Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy as the safest and most reliable remedy for intestinal disorders, such as diarrhoea and dysentery, but women have found a new and helpful use for this product. .

are giving publicity to this new use for Chamberlain’s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy.

All who suffer in this way should obtain a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic and ÌDiarrhoea Remedy to-day. A few drops taken in sweetened water when an approaching attack is felt, will insure you against thè usual suffering, discomfort and loss of poise.

Since it contains no opium, morphia or other narcotic, it can be taken with perfect safety by even young girls.

The risks incurred through neglect of simple injuries are such that no home should be without a preparation which will cleanse a wound, protect it from germs and promote quick healing.

EVEN a pin scratch may become infected by germs and cause untold suffering.

By promptly applying Chamberlain’s Pain Balm to any flesh wound you promote rapid healing.

This liniment cleanses the wound, helps check the bleeding and forms a protective film which prevents the entry of germs.

It stands alone for the rapidity with which it relieves the

pain of burns or scalds and prevents inflammation. If applied immediately the injury is received it will prevent : a blister forming.

When promptly applied to bruises it will prevent swelling, soreness and discolouration.

Sprains and strains and all muscular aches and pains are quickly relieved by Chamberlain’s Pain Balm.

wear-resisting qualities of shellac will offer a pleasant surprise to anyone who has to varnish floors often, and the gloss obtained has a long life.

Clothes Pegs with the heads dipped in white or red paint, are easy to find when dropped in the grass.

Cleaning White Woollens and Furs.—

After a white woollen or white fur has been cleaned in petrol, it should be wrung or shaken out thoroughly and placed in a deep pan. A pound or two of powdered magnesia should then be sifted over and rubbed into the article. Hang on the line to dry and when the magnesia is beaten out, the garment will be cleaner and whiter than is usual after cleaning. The magnesia sinks into the fur or fabric, absorbs the dirt and petrol that cannot be wrung or shaken out, and when beaten out, carries the dirt with it.

Prevent Pain and Suffering.

INTESTINAL disorders, such ! as diarrhoea, dysentery, colic, etc., come on very suddenly and always require prompt and careful treatment.

Chamberlain’s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy gives relief even in the worst cases.    j

One dose relieves pains in ; the stomach and it seldom takes more than a dose or two to stop a severe attack of diarrhoea. If taken at the j first unusual looseness of the !

bowels it will prevent an attack developing.

Those affected by change of diet or drinking water should always carry Chamberlain’s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy in their travelling bag.

In every household there should always be a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy on hand ready for emergencies. It has been the means of saving more pain and suffering than any other remedy known.


For the Home. (Continued.)

Scratches on Furniture can be removed by rubbing well with a solution of equal parts of salad oil and vinegar, using a soft rag. After the scratches have disappeared, polish can be applied.

Care of Iodine Bottle.—Frequent wetting with Iodine rots a cork in a short time, and before long it is too swollen to seal the bottle tightly and pops out. To prevent the bottle being upset and the cork wetted with Iodine, tie a cord round the neck of the bottle and hang itona nailinthe wall or in the door of the medicine chest. It is always in one place and can be easily reached. It is not necessary to take the bottle down to use it.' The cord allows it to be tipped.

Dry-cleaning at Home.—Fabrics can seldom be cleaned satisfactorily in damp or rainy weather. The moist ure in the atmosphere penetrating and partly saturating the fibres of the material, causes it to resist the cleansing action of benzine or other cleaning fluids. Although cotton goods gather more moisture than wrool silk or other material, it is advisable in damp west tier to dry all garments thoroughly before putting them into Cartexr benzine or other cleaning fluid, by hanging them over a warm radiator or near a hot stove.

Removing Glass Bottle Stoppers.

A tight ground-in stopper may be removed by cutting a slot in a strip of wood so it will fit over the top. Twist it backward and forward gently. After a few attempts the stopper will be loosened. If done carefully the glass handle will not be broken.

Keep the Salt Dry.—To prevent the absorption of moisture by the salt in salt shakers during damp weather, place a glass over each shaker when not in use.

Flexible Shellac. Shellac is valuable as a patcher, but has one disadvantage- it becomes brittle as it hardens. To avoid this, add 10 or 15 percent, castoroil to the shellac after it has been d issolved in alcohol. The shellac will then remain flexible after drying.



A New Up-to-date Preparation which takes the place of Mustard Plasters.


OT-O is an antiseptic rubi-facient which, by promoting heat, stimulates the circulation, thus absorbing toxic materials which cause congestion.

It takes the place of t he o 1 d-t i m e mustard plaster with its messiness and inconvenience. Can be applied at any time and there is no risk of taking cold its use.

Being put up in a tube, O-TO is always ready for use and can be carried in your bag or pocket.

OT-O acts like magic. Goes right to the affected parts and relieves the pain. Penetrates to the bone. Lubricates the joints.

Quickly reduces muscular swellings, inflammation, sprains and.strains. Neuralgia, sciatica, rheumatism, stiffness of the neck and joints —ail disappear before its penetrating and comforting heat.

OT-O relieves the congestion which attends colds, bronchitis, whooping cough and all bronchial affections. If used in conjunction with Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy the attack will be quickly conquered. When applied freely to the neck and chest during croup it helpsrelieve the congestion and restore normal breathing.

Replacing Watch Ribbons.—Fold a strip of paper about 2 inches long and the width of the slot, in the middle. Tuck the ribbon end inside the paper and pass the folded end of the paper through the slot. The ribbon will readily follow the paper, if pushed slightly.

A Useful Coat Hanger may be made from a newspaper, rolled up and suspended by a cord around its centre.

Fruit Juice Spilled on Table Linen

should be sprinkled at once with salt to prevent a permanent stain.

The Children’s Friend.

STOPAIN Toothache Gum j should be known as the “Children’s Friend,” for it brings immediate relief from toothache. It also helps preserve the tooth until dental aid can be sought.

And it is just as effective for grown-ups.

STOPAIN fills the cavity of the aching tooth. Excludes the air. Stops pain immediately^ Hardens quickly,

forming a serviceable filling which will last until a permanent filling is put in.

STOPAIN is easy to use. A child can apply it. Contains nothing injurious. Does not burn or blister. Try it the first time some member of your family has toothache. Once you put it to the test you will never be without a box in the house.

STOPAIN Toothache Gum is sold by most retailers at 1/- per box or three boxes for 2/6. But if yours hasn’t it in stock, it will be sent, postage paid, upon receipt of price, by SUNSET DRUG CO.. 528 Riley Street, Sydney, N.S.W.


For the Home. (Continued.)

Repairing: a Fountain Pen.—Coat the split barrel or cap with shellac ell the way around. While plastic, bind the coating with silk thread as uniformly and tightly as possible, smoothing the ends of the thread down well in the setting shellac. After the shellac is dry give the section another light coat, using the fingers in both cases to apply it. The part thus repaired will be absolutely leak.proof. The shellac used should have the consistency of flowing varnish. if too heavy, it will not make a neat job. and if too light, it will set before it can be wrapped.

Opening; Tin Cans.—Insert the point of the opener just below the beading of the top, with its heel against the vertical seam. It can be run round the tin much easier this way than through the top and with less force.

A tin opened this way can be emptied quiCKly and completely, while a top-opened tin usually leaves a jagged edge, making it difficult to empty.

To ProtectHat Bands.—When cleaning straw or panama hats, place two wide rubber bands around the hat, one to cover the upper edge of the ribbon and onethe lower; the cleaning can then be done without soiling the ribbon.

Jemmy-proof Lock.— An ordinary door lock can be made jemmy-proof by drillinga hole,about a x/\ inch ora little less, through the lock casing, the end of the bolt and the door casing, so that a nail or a pin can be pushed in. When the door is locked and the pin pushed into place, it will be a hard matter for anyone to jemmy the door from the outside.

DY-OUT - ao'82&\NO

Takes the colour out of materials. Makes it possible to re-dye

them any colour or shade.

DY-OUT is a preparation which strips the dye from coloured materials. It can be used on any fabric that hot water or boiling will not injure. Even woollens can be boiled in Dy-out, provided they are rinsed in hot water only.

Boiling in Dy-out makes yellowed or discoloured linen like new. it also removes perspiration and other stains.

Many articles from which it was thought impossible to remove the original colour, can be stripped with Dy-out and re-dyed. It will not injure even the finest fabric.

Those using dyes for cold water tinting will find Dy-out most helpful. It so completely strips tints that the material can be tinted again and again with colours alternating from the deepest to the lightest, even pastel shades.




Dy-out strips the dye so evenly from articles coloured by Shade Dyeing or Tied and Dyed method, that they may be dyed or tinted again with any combination of colours.

Material that has been stripped of colour with Dy-out can be re-dyed with any make of dye, but we recommend the use of Dy-o-la Dyes, as they give the brightest, fastest colours, and are the most economical to use.

Dy-out is 1/- per packet. Should you be unable to obtain locally, we will send it to you postage paid, on

receipt of price.

It is a boon to the woman of fashion. Helps her keep up with the quick changes in colour fashions, which are a feature of the day. A colour may be the rage for a month or so, then be out of fashion. Yet the material is good and the style of the dress may be still in vogue.

Here is where Dy-o-la comes to the fore. The original colour can be boiled out, and using Dy-o-la, the material then dyed or tinted in the new colour. Stockings and lingerie may be tinted to harmonise with the dress.

Faded coloured stockings can be made to look like new by rinsing them in cold water which has been coloured with Dy-o-la.

With Dy-o-la you can tint materials any of the smart and delicate shades by merely rinsing them in cold water coloured with Dy-o-la; it is

home and will dye any kind of material. Use it either as a cold water tint, or for dyeing to get pretty, fast colours. Curtains that are frequently washed can be just tinted. This enables you to change the colour of the curtains from time to time.

The most delightful effects can be produced with Dy-o-la Dyes, and they give every woman the opportunity of expressing her own individuality in her home.

Novelties in Dyeing.

Those wonderful mottled silk scarves, shawls, lamp shades, etc., can be made in the home with the aid of Dy-o-la. The effects are produced by what is called “Tie and Dye” dyeing.
