In looking at some papers I noticed the road tax for a property here next door for 1923 was 65 cents. Taxes have changed considerably, along with wages and everything else.

Household Hint: Talcum powder substitute. Cornstarch is a very good substitute for talcum powder. It’s cheap and odorless. This is good for those whose skin gets irritated by perfumes in beauty care products.

Yogurt is a good pick-meup especially when you are hot and tired. Just rub plain yogurt on your face and leave it on 20 minutes then rinse with cool water.
