HOUSEHOLD. Flying Glassware. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
HO USl'iTOLD. FlUying- Glsseware. In frosty weather o4: nightcap of spirits should be made by pttting in the spirits first, then the hot water directly into the spirits and not down tie sides of the goblet, while the blue ribbon adrocate should be careful not to put his !:ed lemonade into a glass brought from a warm cupboard, or a glass which has been i the sun. Your glass mustard pat, often a thick one, must never be soaked in hot or even moderately warm water. Your decanters and water bottles should be cleaned inside without hot water; there are a dozen recipes in every household book for this without using hot water. A little consideration will tell the thought. mind that expansion and contraction of metals-and glass is a teetal--should not be sudden, but gradual and regular, in all parts alike. Very thin glass does not fly from hot water often, it being so thin that heat ex-. pands it all at once; consequently it does not burst from a part' only expanding, or from the thick and ...

Short Sketches. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
Short Sketches. Blades of Pocketknives.-The blades of the very cheap pdcketknives are punched in dies from sheet steel., ba those for first class pocket cutlery are hand forged, a good workman being able to forge from twenty five to thirty large blades per hour, and about forty pen blades per hour. There is a pattern and gauge furnished the forger for each sort of blade, but the experienced workman rarely refers to either, his accuracy of eye and skill of hand being sufficient guides to exactness. The blades come from the hand of the smith perfect in form, ex cept the bevel of the back intended to guide engaging blades, this bevel being formed byf grinding. The steel used in these fine blades is Wardlow's (English), or the best American mate. As they come from the forges the blades are " choiled," or filed, to make a nick between the blade and the tang. Then the blades are tempered, having received the trade mark stamp on the tang under a press. The hardening is done in a an ordinar...
Orchid Hunting. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
Orchid Hunting. Orchid hunting appears to be a fine advens turons sport-not so exciting, perhaps, a Waterton's snaring of the ca mans with baited books in the great rivers of Brazil, but getting on that way. Unfortunately, tLh most prized of ourorchids are reported to be rapidly disappearing from their native plsces. According, to the "' Journal des Orehidees," in the environs of Pacho (Ecuidor), where hundreds of thousands of specimens of the Odontopgossum Alerandrer have been collected only a few, plants are now left. In other places where it once flourished it has entirely vanished.' Though not in the true sesa, of the word a parasite, this beatiful plant perfers to grow upon the trunks of trees, - which the natives dread to limb on acoouo - of . e, naticoupion ea stolging ants. Henar the practice is to fell the huge tree, with Ith frequent result that no orchid is found. The hunters, it is stated, separate into parties of live or ten, and disappear for a fortnight in the dense S...

Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
Spring alile3. - :o: [FROM OUR OWS CoRRESPONDENT.] Great interest is just now excited in this and neighbouring localities through the alleged discovery a short time ago Iof a payable gold bearing lode at a place near what I may describe as the top end of King Parrot Creek. It would seem that the discove~, has r,,at as ie1ts that promise good yields. So far however, the operations are chiefly di rected to finding the exact direction and thickness of the seam and a large area has already been pegged out, but its extent swill not be ascertainable until more progress is imade. The neigh. bourhood is not without its reputation for gold deposits and a claim was worked a short distance away some time ago, but which, in spite of en couraging prospects of mineral had to be relinguished owing to the large in flux of water,
A Grim Jest. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
A Grim Jest. When the Emperor Maximilian, whom the French, English, and Anetrians had put upon the throne of Mexico, had baen deserted by his European allies on account of the unfriendliness of the United States to his enterprise, he was overcome by the military forree of the revolted Mexican people, and condemned to death for his asur. pation. He was shot at Queretaro, June 19, 18e7, and with him the Mexican prime mini. ater, Miramon, who was condemned for teea. son to the republic. Before they were exe. cuted, Maximilian and Miramon were allowed to walk in a garden, attended by guards. As they were breathing with relief the fresh ait outside their prison, the bell nn a neighboring church began to toll rather dismally. "Is that our death.knellf" Maximilian asked of Miramon. "1 cannot tell you sire," said Miramon; "I am not acqoainted with the way they go about it, because this is the first time in my life that 1 have ever been executed I" Maximilian laughed heartily at his com. pas...
A Demon Exercised. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
A Demon Exorcised. ---4..., -- BY E. A. BOYDEN. It was a face that, once seen, was never to bs forgotten. It was as rare as the Budda. mya ruby, and any attempt to describe in detail the lines and ehades and the changes in expression ao this human loveliness would be as futile as to try to convey to another the impressions, or rather the reason for the impressions, of delight caused by the soft, in. deecribable beauty of that wondrously charm ing ptocious stone. In looking upon the perfect face for the first time, one w?s etruct by the uniqueness of the beauty outlined there,and by the gentle power it possessed to hold one captive and epell-bound. And when one could summon suffi?ient resolution to quit gazing at the face for a moment, the eyes naturally wandered to the figure that belonged to it. Nor was the:e any disappointment in continuing this study. It was msrvellously symmetrical and racrefeul Madeline Raymond was, of course, con scioua of her rich personal endowments, and she...
