Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 5 January 1894
Tobacco. The use of tobacco, either to smoke in pipts or cigars, to chew or take as snuff, appears to be a purely American practice in its origin. Columboe observed it on hu first voyage, and it extended from the far north to the tropical parts of South America. Cabral in 1515 noticed the Indians of Brazl chewing tobacce ; and snuff mortars, carved like the pipes of the mound-builders of the Ohio into the shape of animals are common in 'eru and Chili. Be search has shown that tobacco was a sacred herb with the red men, and its use was in some sense areligiousrite. OrigiJally the pipe was only employed by the medicine man or aoererr, to whom it was a means of communication with the unseen spirits which animated all nature, and also of curing disease, which all savages regard as the work of evil spirits. - -- - -
Feeding Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 5 January 1894
Feeding Horses. Ilorses in Norway have a very sensible way of taking their food, which mightb beneficially followed here. They have a bucket of water put down beside their allowance of hay. It is iateresting to see with what relish they take a sip of the one and a mouthful of the other alter nately, sometimes only moistening their months as a rational being would, while eating their dinner of such dry food. A broken-winded horse is scarcely ever seen in Noeway, and the nuestion is if the mode of feeding has not some thing to do withthe preservation of the animal's respiratory organs.

POPULAR SCIENCE. Perfume in Flowers, Ihe following eonolusions are the reu.It of the researches of Mr E. Meeanad upon the mode of production of. the perfume in floweres:-l. The essential il is generally found localised in the epidermic cell of the upper surface of the petal or sepals. It may exist npon both surfaces,especially if the floral parts are completely concealed in the bud. The lower eurface generally contains tannin or pigments derivel therefrom. 2. The chlorophyl seems in all ase to give rise to the essential oil. 3. The di engagement of the perfume of the flower makes itself per ceptible only when the essential oii is sufciently disengaged from the intermcdiate a products that have giren rise to it, and is found, in a manner, in a ratio inverse to the production of tannin and pigments in the flower. This, eaeys r leenard, will explain (a) why flowere with green petals have no odor, (b) why white or rose-coored flowers are most often odoriferous, (c) why the com posit.e, ...

Soft Boiled. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 5 January 1894
Soft Boiled. "In a country hotel wherel had stoppid for supper," said a traveller, " Isaw on the table some boiled eggs. As I reached for them the waitress said: "'Do you like them hard or soft boled!' "Soft," I said. "' The soft boiled are in the other dish,' said the waitress. "Then, as I looked the other way on the table, I saw another dish of eggs. But they looked precisely like those in the first dish, and I wondered how anybody could tell them apart if they should ever get mixed up. As long as they were kept at the ends of the table where they were first placed it would be very slmple, but suppose some polite guest should say to his neighbor : "' W ill you have the eggs ?' "And suppose the man should say ' es, thank you,' and take them, and suppose one dish should in this way work along the table untl it was alongside the other ; or, for that matter, suppose the dishes should chanre places, as they might easily do, who could tell then which was hard and which soft t I found my...
