The Newspaper Reference. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

The Newspaper Reference.   EVERY recipient of a newspaper should "cut out and paste" in a book, no matter how homely or made of what material―even brown paper, every 'hint' that strikes him as being useful or     recommending itself to his intelligence. It is   astonishing at the end of a year―much more so two or three―what a highly useful book of of reference his regularity―for the trouble is not to be spoken of, will have secured him―not only of reference but always of pleasant reading. It is one of the aims of an intelligent editor, to glean from every source of information whatever can be useful, instructive, or specially amusing to his readers, having special reference to his   own district its capabilities, industries and climate. For this purpose he reads a variety of   pamphlets, newspapers essays &c., and makes select extracts; so that his readers are supplied   with the cream...

THVE "NORTHERN STAR." L[?]MORE, MAY 13, 1876. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

THE "NORTHERN STAR." LISMORE, MAY 13, 1876.       OURSELVES. No doubt many of the residents of the Rich- mond River district, on looking over the new venture we have taken the liberty of placing before them will fell inclined to paraphrase the words of an old writer, and say― Twinkle, twinkle little "Star,"   How I wonder who you are?   and as Pressmen on occasions like the present   are generally accorded the privilege of speaking of themselves, we take this opportunity of saying a few words upon a well-worn topic.     It must have been patent to many persons, for some time past, that owing to the rapidly in- creas[ink-blot]nd future prospects of the [blot] various [blot] surely//offers [blot]ves for new industries and ideas, and having been offered inducements by the residents of Lismore and its vicinity to start a small newspaper, we acceeded to their request, and the result is...

Extraordinary Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

Extraordinary Cricket. IN watching the progress of English cricket from season to season, we find many-occasions upon which extraordinary incidents of the game are found worthy of special notice. In this colony curiosities of cricket seldom occur, but the Marl- borough Cricket Club recently secured the distinc- tion of proving what our knights of the willow can accomplish in this direction. A short time since some reference was made to the fact of eleven in New Zealand having been disposed of for a total of 7' made up entirely of byes; but to dismiss a team   for a grand total of 0 is a performance worthy to be marked in red letters, as occurring only at intervals of years. It seems that on Saturday, the 8th April, the Undaunted and Marlborough Clubs met in competition on the Alliance Ground, when every representative of the latter was disposed of without scoring, being either caught or bowled. Even the not out man had no runs to his credit, nor did sun- dries contribut...

Privileges of Leap Year. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

Privileges of Leap Year. "YOUNG ladies have the privilege of saying anything they please during leap-year," she said, eyeing him out of the corners of her eyes with a sweet look.       His heart gave a great bound, and, while he wondered if she was going to ask the question which he had so long desired and feared to do so, he answered "Yes." "And the young men must not refuse," said       she.     "No, no. How could they," sighed he.     "Well, then," said she, "will you――"   He fell on his knees and said, "Anything,   anything you ask, darling."         "Wait till I get through. Will you take a     walk, and not hang around our house so much?" And he walked.―"Oil City Derrick."

A Dry Season. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

A Dry Season. AN honest old farmer from the country gave his recollections of the hot spell as follows:―"It     was so dry that every time the wind blew it flew around like so much ashes. There wasn't a tear shed at a funeral for a month. The sun dried up all the cattle, and burnt off all the hair till they looked like poodle puppies, they sh[blot] up so. We had to soak all our hogs to [make?] 'em hold swill; and if any cattle were killed in the morning, they'd be dried beef at dark. The weeds dried up so that the farmers chopped seasoned timber all through August, and there ain't a match through all the country―in fact, no wedding since the widow Glenn married old   Baker, three months ago. What few grass- hoppers are left are all skin and legs, [blot] I didn't hear the tea-kettle sing for six weeks. We eat our potatoes baked, they being all ready, and we couldn't spare any water then to   boil 'em. All the red-haired girls were a...

Select Poetry. JOHN'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

      Select Poetry. JOHN'S WIFE.     A YOUNG wife stood with her head on her broom, And looked around the little room;   "Nothing but toil forever,'' she said.   "From early morn till the light hath fled.   If you only were a merchant now, We need not live by the sweat of our brow,"   Pegging away, spoke shoemaker John―   "We ne'er see well what we're standing on."   A lady stood by her husband's chair,     And quietly passed her hand o'er his hair. "You never have time for me now," she said, And a teardrop fell on the low bent head,   "If we were only rich, my dear,   With nothing to do from year to year, But amuse each other―0, dear me!     What a happy woman I should be."     Looking up from his ledger spoke merchant John― "We ne'er see...

Chinese in California. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

Chinese in California. A CORRESPONDENT of the S. M. Herald writes:―   The Californians are having more of the   "Chinese" than they calculated upon. Whole blocks of buildings, and whole streets are mono- polised by Chinese. While passing through the places in the evening, one might easily suppose himself in a Chinese city. To say the Celestials swarm does not sufficiently express what is really the case. I am told that there are 50,000 Chinese in San Francisco. To me there seemed as many mere[torn] 50,000 human beings, packed as these[torn]mselves; huddled in [torn]ps of from [torn] n small rooms, work- [torn] shoema[torn] washers of clothes,                           [torn]s, wat[torn] change [torn] bakers, [torn]ers perhaps,[torn]ers of ever[torn] [torn]kind.

Bathing at Ostend. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

Bathing at Ostend. THE ladies seem not to have invented anything peculiarly striking or hasarde this year for their acquatic exercises. Their "full suits" are       mostly in stripes―red and white, violet and white, blue and bluff―or plain black-edged with       scarlet which is becoming to blondes, and a good deal more discreet than the lighter materials. Oilskin bonnets and great flapping hats are a good deal worn a l'eau. The ''distribution of costumes" is a humerous sort of lottery, in which people of both sexes who are troubled with physical peculiarities draw the queerest sort of prizes for their tickets. A lean and willowy damsel receives a costume which would comfortably fit a Hottentot Venus, and the effect of which, when moist, is simply screaming. A gentleman, to apprise weight at eighteen stone would be to pay him a subtle and grace- ful compliment, is seen painfully tripping down &nbsp...

A New Arcadia. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

A New Arcadia.   MR. RUSKIN'S hope of regenerating the world by   means of taste, tidiness, and truisms bids fair to   have a successful trial. He has pitched the site,   of his first model village, his "Arcadia," in the neighbourhood of Sheffield, and already an-     nounces that the subscriptions towards its   support amount to L8000. With this sum he   hopes to buy land enough to build a number of cottages upon aesthetic principles, and to estab- lish a museum, not after the debasing pattern of those too frequently to be found in large manufacturing centres. The photographs by means of which the eye and taste of the inhabit- ants of Arcadia are to be trained are already chosen, and they must be purchased at certain shops, under pain of lesser or greater excommu- nication of the infallible Mr. Ruskin.

THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 13 May 1876

THE FARM.       FEEDING FOWLS.―"Agricola," in the New   York Tribune, says that "as hens, turkeys,   geese, and ducks are not provided wfth incisor canine, nor molar teeth, it is folly to feed bones to them unless the hard substances are first re- duced to small fragments. Fresh bones are   valuable feed for poultry of any sort, provided   the fragments are so small that the birds can swallow them. Once in the crop of a fowl, bits of bone will soon be changed into soft. and   palatable food. Our own practice is to have a dish in the kitchen specially to receive the bones   that are purchased with the beefsteak, mutton, and other meat. Then every day these pieces   are taken to a chopping-block, and with an old axe, having a sharp cutting edge, they are crushed with the head of the axe and cut into   pieces not larger than kernels of Indian co...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. (From the Australian Associated Press.) SYDNEY. Friday, May 12th. The Legislative Assembly have passed the Estimates of the Mines and Land Department   with: very little alteration. A disorderly discussion ensued last night on a motion for adjournment in reference to the conduct of the Minister for Lands in being in- strumental in counting out the House on the Hastings Electoral Bill. Several disorderly scenes occurred.   Messrs. Meyers and Co., grocers, have sus- pended payment; their liabilities are said to   amount to L27,000. Another house in the same line of business is said to be in difficulties. The members of the Bar have entertained Sir William Manning at a dinner.   The continued interruptions to the English Cable are causing considerable inconvenience to business people.   Hewitt has issued another challenge to run Dalton one hundred yards for L500 a side.

About Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 20 May 1876

About Advertising. i You can't eat enough in a week to last you a I year, and you can't advertise on that plan either. People that advertise only once in three months forget that most folk cannot remember anything longer than about seven days. No bell' can ring so loudly as a good advertisement. People will believe what they see rather than what they hear. Quitting advertising in dull times is fike tearing out a dam because the water is low ; either plan will prevent good times! eyer coming. An Indian tried the softness of feathers by laying on a rock, and stretching himself upon it. There are some who try the virtue of advertising on the same plan. It is true.of advertising as of anything else in life that if it is. worth doing at all, it is worth doing well. Bread is the staff of human life, anti advertising is the staff of life in trade. Wo don't recommend advertising as the best way to get a good wife, but we can recommend it as thc best way to get a good -trade. Small advertise...
