LATEST IN BATHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898
LATEST IN BATHS. Take a wine bath, is the gist of a circular whioh has just been issued in one of the French departments, A sojourn of twenty minutes in a tub into which a hundred litres of Mal voisle have been poured is described as the most invigorating process that can be imagined, it being added that the operation can be repeated with the same wine 100 times. ''You empty the whole hectolitre on each occasion into the bath, and when you have had your dip you put the wine back into the cask.1' So the same Malvoisie does duty over and over again, a fact which ought to weigh with persons who are not of an ex travagant turn of mind. But this is not all. The wine is not lost even now. It oan be drunk. '3Tor' con cludes the circular, ' after the 100 baths tho Malvoisie is distilled, and the result is a delicious brandy,' whioh, it ia to be devoutly hoped, is at least to be kept by the patient for his own personal consumption. These wine baths, if they become fashion able, open suoh a v...

A Clever Conjurer. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898
A Clever Conjurer. A wag once gave a description of a conjuring entertainment given by Signor Laballo, in Berlin. After having enumerated a number of marvellous tricks, there came one headed ' the sneezing. ' A number of haudker chiefs wore borrowed from the compuny, and no sooner was this done than the lenders wore visited by a violent fit of sneezing and Rubsequent inconvenience for the wantof the handkerchiefs, which, in the meantime^ had been burnt. Be hold, presto ! they were all returned to the londera nicely washed, folded, and perfumod. Similarly, several £5 notes wero borrowed to light a spirit lamp beneath a cauldron, and on opening the lid, lo 1 a pigeon made its appearance, with the notes also doubled (not in value, but folded) in its beak. The most astounding of all the trioks, howover, was this.

The Management of Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898
The Management of Pigs. — ♦-♦-« — From the Agricultural Gazette of N.8. W. Mn. J. Ri'ley, of Indiana, writes in the American Agriculturist : — ' I have been breeding Berkshires for thirty years. During that time I have tried several other-breeds in comparative tosts. The wideawake farmer endeavours to send as little of the fertility of his soil as possible to market. The crops of his farm are disposed of a finished product of the highest possible type, so as to command the best market price. For this purpose I found that the Berkshire- excelled all other breeds. Thene hogs have been improved for a century along the line of converting a mixed diet of slops, grass, and coarse vegetables into the very finest quality of pork. They are admirably adapted to follow ing cattle and gathering up the scattering grain and vegetables on the farm, thus making them the general purpose hog. My method of feeding is to take the sow at lenst five weeks before farrowing time, put her into a large roomy...
How Long is a Thought? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898
How Long is a Thought? How long does it take a man to think P Professor Richet, at the recent meeting of the British Association, gave the re sults of his investigations into this sub ject. He found that by mentally running up the notes of the musical scale for one or more octaves, and then dividing the total time by the total number of notes thought of, the time taken for each note was .one-eleventh of a second. If the skin be touched repeatedly with light blows from a small hammer, a person may, according to Professor Richet, distinguish the fact that the blows are separate, and not continuous pressure when they follow one another as frequently aa 1,000 a second. The smallest intervals of sound can be much better distinguished with one ear than with both. Thus the Beparateness of the clicks of a revolving-toothed, wheel was noted by one observer when they did not exceed sixty to the second, but using both ears he could not distinguish them when they occurred oftener than fifteen t...
The Table. Hints for the Cook. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898
The Talble. / Hints for tho Cook. j When washing potatoes before cook ing, employ a small scrubbing-brush, and you will find the prooess perfectly easy. When boiling a haddock, fasten the head fo the tajl, add only Just sufficient water to cover, and boil slowly till cooked. When beating eggs for a cake, be sure that the whisk is perfectly clean; any grease on It will prevent the eggs from frothing properly. Left over pastry should be rolled out thinly, stamped into rounds the size of a five-shilling- piece, baked till crisp, and placed In a tin till required as a garnish, or for a foundation for a savoury. Never clear soup the day before It Is wanted. The stock may be made two days before required in cold weather, but If not very freshly clarified It will have a cloudy appearance. — 'Home Notes.'
