Dwarf Meadow Grass ia common to every quarter of tho globe where perpetual cold does not prevent it. It flowers and seeds most rapidly, growing- in almost any soil and situation.

TRAVELLER. FURTHER INFORMATION REQUIRED [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
TRAVEDDER. _____________ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; FURTHER INFORMATION REQUIRED In the village churchyard at Trim, county Meath, a tombstone is to be seen which bears the following words (supposed to be uttered by the gentleman reposing under) : ' Oh, passer-by ! whoe'er you be, Prepare full soon to follow me." The people of the neighbourhood were shocked when they found that some wag had written under this- ' To follow you I'm not content, Unless you tell the road you went
IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
IN EGYPT. When Napoleon's Army was in Egypt, the presence of the learned mathematicians and arohaelogists, who accompanied it, often hampered its progress. On one expedition into the desert, a swarm of Mamelukes sud- denly came on the scene, preparing to attack the troops, and the French General who was greatly hindered in his movements by the beasts of burdon, had hardly time to pro- nounce the following word of command : ' Form square ! The asses and the professors in the middle !' The general hilarity occasioned by those words caused a loud burst of laughter from the soldiers, which so astonished and puzzled the Arabs that they turned tail and fled. &nbsp; &nbsp;
CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
CUSTOMS. An eminent Oriental was invited some years ago to spend a few days at the country seat of an eminent statesman. In the morning he was duly brought a can of hot water, the exact meaning of which he was at a loss to fathom. But, with the courtesy that invariably characterises his race, he felt bound to testify his appreciation of the attention in some practical form. He accordingly drank the entire contents. Even more trying, however, was the experience of another Eastern gentleman, who was offered some boiled shrimps. He imagined them to be sweetmeats, and popped one into his mouth in the expectation that it would melt. After several minutes of anxious expectation he realised the blunder, and exclaimed ex- citedly, ' Detestable insect !'
THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. CHRISTMAS EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. &nbsp; &nbsp; CHRISTMAS EVE. Christmas of 1807 was ushered in very quietly locally, old Santa Claus even failing to pay the town a visit as in former years at the request of Mr. Hugh Murphy-and justly &nbsp; so, too, for the public did not fully appreciate him on the occasion of his last visit. Prior to &nbsp; Christmas Eve there was really nothing to denote the approach of the festive season, if we except the fact that the windows of the various stores had been dressed "in their best" for about a fortnight. On that night, however, the town presented a very animated appearance, Macquarie-street, in particular, being thronged with people, amongst whom we noticed many former residents, who ap- parently had come to spend their holidays in the old town. The various stores and hotels (many of the latter displaying Chinese lanterns, bunting and other decorations), appeared to be doing good business, and the Liverpool Band paraded the...
HOXTON PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
HOXTON PARK. Steps are being taken by several of the resid- ents to erect a hall for the eastern half of the estate, Messrs. Miller, Mackellar, McClure, Robertson, Gregg, Reay and others have the matter well under-way, the land having been &nbsp; given by one of the gentlemen named (Mr. Gregg). Subscription lists are being opened with the view of raising portion of the funds, and with the requisite amount of energy the " Hoxton Park Hall" should he an accom- plished fact before many weeks have sped. Among the objects for which the building is to be used are Sunday-school, Literary and Debating Society, Improvement Society, Glee Club and kindred institutions, having for their object the advancement of the young people of the Park. A hall, we might state, is greatly needed in this portion of the district and will prove an important factor in its advancement. We heartily wish the movement every success and hope shortly to have the pleasure of step- ping into the " Hoxton Park H...
CANLEY VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
CANLEY VALE. Since my last report, re municipal elections for West Ward, I have to state that Mr. George Gordon, whom I mentioned, has now decided not to contest a seat, owing to his contemplated early departure from the district ; nor will Mr. Geo. Hoycard enter the contest. Quite recently a numerously-signed requisition from the ratepayers of West Ward was presented to ex-Alderman T. B. Linley, asking him to re-enter the municipal area. That gentleman has decided to accede, to the request and will therefore seek election. Ex-Aldernian B. Stevens will contest the other vacant seat. Both gentlemen are sure of good support-their conduct in previous municipal matters being of the straightforward and honourable kind.
BENEFITS OF GARGLING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
BENEFITS OF GARGLING. A doctor says: " If people would wash out &nbsp; their mouths two or three times a day with au antiseptic solution there would not be so much sickuess. In the last ten years I have never had a cold, sore throat, or fever, and I ascribe this immunity sorely to the fact that I follow this plan rigidly. There are any number of antiseptics. One of the best is carbolic acid. A very weak solution of this gargled and held in the mouth two or three times a day will work wonders. Immediately after using, one will find the mouth much cleaner. I believe that a majority of the common throat and lung troubles come from the lodgment of disease microbes within the mucous membrane of the mouth. The free use of antiseptics will kill the germs."
CAVE CREEK SNAKE YARN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
CAVE CREEK SNAKE YARN. A short time back (says a correspondent of the " Molong Argus") a Chinaman here had a very unpleasant experience with a large brown snake, one of the largest yet killed in these parts. It appears he was scrub-cutting for Mr. H. Livingstone, of Cave Creek, and while engaged in cutting a small bush was at- tacked by the monster mentioned. The snake caught him by the trousers and got fastened by its fangs, and being unable to free himself like lightning coiled around the terri- fied Mongolian's leg in successive coils to his thigh. Joe kicked, bounded in the air like a wounded wallaby, chattered in Chinese, here and there punctured with unsavoury English, and became almost frantic with fear. But recovering to a certain extent and finding his enemy could not thus be shaken off, he resol- ved to try different tactics. To chop it with an axe was very dangerous ; to attempt to kill it with a stick was equally as risky. " Me go housey kitchem cissor." His camp was abo...

THEN DON'T WATCH THE POT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
THEN DON'T WATCH THE POT. A watched pot never boils, and a watched clock never goes. Nothing is quick enough for im- patience. Minutes, hours, and days are mere words after all. We are happy- a day is but an hour. We are miserable- an hour is a day. From the summer of 1890 to the autumn of 1892 wasn't long to contented and busy people ; but to Mrs. Annie Dutton it seemed like one of those tremendous geologic periods that the learned men talk about. For it was measured by weary heart-beats and foot-steps taken in pain. Her trouble began as it begins with an uncounted multitude of women- the tired and languid feel- ing, the disgust with food, the grinding pain at the pit of the stomach, the nausea and vomiting of acid fluids, &c.- a dreary list. Writing of her experience recently, she says : " After a time I had so much distress and I never wanted anything to eat ; the very look of it made me sick. Night after night came, bringing sleep to others, but not to me. I was low, mis...
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "GENTRY?" [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "GENTRY?" An American paper gives the following anecdote : - At a little dinner party one of the guests, the youngest brother of an English noble- man, expressed with commendable freedom his opinion of America and its people. " I do not altogether like the country," said the young gentleman, " for one reason -because you have no gentry there." " What do you mean by ' gentry' ?" asked another of the company. &nbsp; " Well, you know," replied the Englishman. -" Well- oh, gentry are those who never do any work themselves, and whose fathers before them never did any." " Ah!" exclaimed his interlocutor, " then we have plenty of gentry in America. But we don't call them gentry ; we call them tramps !" A laugh went round the table, and the man turned the conversation into another channel. &nbsp;
TO BAKERS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
TO BAKERS AND OTHERS. The metropolitan inspector of weights and measures, Mr. J. W. Evans (with the ap- proval of the Minister for Justice), has issued a notice to the baking trade and others interested, that bread of all denominations must in future be made full standard weight. Bread of every description being other than the legal weight will be liable to seizure, and the baker or seller thereof to prosecu tion. The concession allowed (without pre- judice) by circular, dated June 26, 1800, having reference to twist loaves and long rolls, is now revoked.
PAT AND THE POSTMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
PAT AND THE POSTMAN. The following collequy actually took place in a country post office : - Pat : " Oi say, Mr. Postmaster, is there a litther for me ?" " Who are you, my good sir ?" "Oi'm meself, that's who Oi am." &nbsp; " Well, what's you name ?" " An' wot do ye be waitin' wid me name? Isn't on the litther ?" " So that I can find the letter, if there is one ?" " Will, Pat Byrne thin if ye must have it?" " No, sir, there are none for Pat Byrne." " Is there no way to git in thar but through this pane of glass ?" " No, sir." " It's well for ye there isn't. Oi'd teach ye bitther manners thin to insist on a gentle- &nbsp; man's name ; but ye didn't get it afther all &nbsp; - so Oi'm even wid ya. Divii the bit is me name Byrne !"

MUSHROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
MUSHROOMS. &nbsp; Mushroom beds made up in warm sheds &nbsp; and cellars produce the much-valued winter &nbsp; crops. To succeed thoroughly well it is de- sirable to have a moderate amount of arti- ficial heat at command when low winter temperatures occur. The horse droppings &nbsp; and dry stable sweepings collected as sug- gested, thrown together under cover, should &nbsp; be in excellent order for bed making. They must not, however, be too wet, or so wet as to cause them to ferment unduly or not too quickly ; nor so dry as to preclude their fer- menting slightly. Indeed a slight heat in them when made into beds and subsequently alone causes the inserted spawn to run or grow, but it must not exceed 60 degrees Fah- renheit. If the collected materials are too wet, therefore, throw them very lightly up into a conical heap, so that they ferment and become drier, making up the bed or beds from the heap whon in that condition. On the other hand, i...
TONGUES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
TONGUES. A much-travelled friend of mine says that the tongues of some animals are very dangerous weapons. A lion could readily kill a man by licking him with his tongue. The tongues of ali the members of the cat &nbsp; family are covered with curious recurving spines, formed of tough cartilage. In the common domestic cat these spines are very small; but are sufficiently well developed to give the tongue a feeling of roughness. In the fiercest animals-such as the lion or tiger-he has found that these spines are frequently found projecting up for an eighth of an inch or more, with very sharp points, or edges. While the mouth is relaxed the tongue is soft and smooth, but when the animal is excited to the fighting pitch the spines beoome rigid.
