Squire as a noteo story teller, and whenever he appears in a public place is surrounded by a group of acquaiutaoos.. content on listening to him.

NOVELTIES IN FANCY-WORK. In these days ofexcessive activity (says a writer lin "The Queen") and never-ceasing novelty, one lives and learns co rapidly that the wonder is: that one does not forget more ~quekly. In ftayneedlework-asin every. thing else-how the fashion changes. What h all the rage one year at bazaars and in drawing-rooms is quite out.o .date the next, or, at the most, the year after that. Much la done in the name of:oharity,.and great goed is wrought by the sale of novel and pretty things, so that all credlt Is due t. inventiveo:-genius, clever ..fingers, and rapid i manipulation.

ORANGES [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 21 July 1888
ORANGES OntrAoY MAR?IALDE -A very good, easy, and! economical way of making orAnge marmalado is to allow a pound of Seville oranges to one pound and a half of sugar and, one pint of water. Out the oranges into the thinnest possible slices, removing the pipe and slicing rind and pulp together. It is best to remove as mochl as possible of' the white skin of the rind, as this makes the marmalade clearer. Boil the oranges for an hoor and. a half before adding the sugar. After the sugar is added, the marma lades is boiled till it jellies, which may be from one hour to one hour and a half. ANOTIHEn YAY.-A more elaborate way of making orange marmalade is to take a dozen and a half medium-sized Seville oranges and three lemons, quarter them, take out the pulp, and cut the peal very thinly. Scrape. away'the juicy part of the pulp; and put it sam?e with the peel. Pot the white skin and pipe into abasin apart.
