Short Story. A Paying Guest. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
Short Story. A Paying Guest. . JOHN FOSTER FRASI5R, in Ibe j 'Weekly Sun.' ! It was either been nsa my iucouin was too small, or because our house was too large, or both, that Mni-y -nok it into her head we -ought to liave a lodger. Only Mary uevcr called the prospective1 bonruVr1 l-y liis proper name. She resented the thought of turning .our place into a lodging-house. She dis lil.-jifl lrulfrm-c Sim litwl on iilan f+lflt lodgers were hardly respectable people. I poiuted out to her that for seven years I lived in lodgings, but she got out of the difficulty by saying that in uiy case it was different When I asked her in what way, she told rue not to be stupid. Anyway, she said she was not going to have a strange man about, one who would take our breakfast-room and turn it into a sitting-room and fill it with smoke, who would put his feet on the chairs and let his cigar ash fall on the hearthrug, who would want everything set down in a book, and who would be so suspicious as to count...

A Deplorable Fashion. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
A Deplorable F.-isliion. In a pamphlet Issued by the Society for the Protection of Birds, it is stated that the month of May last was the culminat ing point of a deplorable fashion in London. Few bonnets and hats weiv to be seen without tlie adornment of a graceful spray of soft, fine plumes, with drooping or curly tips. These beautiful ' Bird : of .Paradise' feathers could be purchased in quantities at every milliner's shop, and the. assurance that they were real— which there is little reason to doubt ? ^uuiu^uautiiij' we cih-.ii.*cm» ihiacu in n.itr same spray, 'and forming- a contrast to these Soft ?plumes, might be seen the delieate..Osnrey tips, which have so long been In faslijon, and, in spile of .

Thr Mote and the Beam. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
Tlir Mote and tlie Beam. Much amusement has been created in Paris by the discovery that the Prefect of the Seine has Issued a circular to his '? subordinates begging them to be ex tremely careful with regard to their spelling, In which he misspells the word ' orthography' by leaving out the flrst ' h.' This has lea to a close scrutiny of the official utterances emanating from the Hotel de Ville. and poor M. Poir »ene is cnargeu wun Having committed other solecisms. Thus, in a report dated 2Sth February, 1S95, which was drawn up jy M. Cirebonval and signed by the Pre fect, it was represented that the tomb proposed to be erected for the burial of workmen accidentally killed while in the service of tlie Paris Municipality should be a sort -of ' semi-circle of rectangular form.' How a seml-circje can at tlie same time be a rectangle the report does not say. A French wag suggests that the confusion arose from the common use of the apparently opposite terms ' rond' (found) and ' carre' (s...

The Sketcher. Concerning a Whistle. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
Tlie Sketchier. : Concerning aA/Vhist!e. Why they had never thought of it be fore Dorothea could not imagine. Here was George, for the huudrcd-and-lirst tlnnv perhaps, standing on the door step iu 1 he rain, and wondering whether it was worth while to wait another ten niiuules on the chance of an empty cab crawling by, or whether it would be bettor to plunge at once into the thick of the discomfort and walk down to the rank, live miuutes distant. 'If we had a cab whistle this -wouldn't oc cur,' said Dorothea. George found this another instance of Dorothea's brilliant practicalness. So Dorothea, with that promptitude which characterises the woman of action, went, out after the rain had ceased to lind a shop that sold cab whistles. The Ironmonger had a large selection, aud performed with ear-splitting results u» several instruments. He seemed to en joy it, and insisted that Dorothea should hear his stock through. With a view to 1lio. remoteness of the cab-rank, she chose a peculiarly ...

The Home. How She Keeps Her Freshness [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
The Home. How She Keeps Her Freshness Until the phjviniugical principles which account for tlie phenomenon are under stood, it must remain a very puzzling fact that an actress's life Rhould be more favourable to the preservation of good looks, and even of girlish fresh ness, than the life led by women who occupy their natural sphere and who cultivate — as they think — all the physical and moral virtues. A successful actress must work ex tremely hard, generally by artificial light and In a gas-befouled atmosphere. Her hours for work, meals, and sleep are all utterly bad from the hygienic point of view, and not unfrequently she makes bad worse by falling into those Bohemian habits which are an immemo rial tradition of her class. Her secret, apart from the laws regulating the ex pression and nutrition of tlie race, con sists chiefly of avoidance of monotony and petty worries— those arch enemies of feminine good looks and good temper. Her work, if arduous, is generally per formed fcolh ...
Harking Linens by Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
Marking Linens by Electricity. An apparatus for marking linens in quantities, as for hotels, ships, &c, has been invented. It consists of a silver die, in relief, carrying the name it is desired to Impress. This is put Jn a press and forced down upon the linen, which is wetted. Under the linen is a carbon plate. The current from three or four Dechance batteries is- theh con nected to the apparatus for. two seconds, passing through the linen and the carbon pjate. This dissolves a minute portion of the metallic silver, and carries it into the pores of the linen. The current is then reversed for four seconds, ajid reduces the silver from the metallic state to oxide, which Is exactly tlie effect pro duced by passing- a hot iron over mark ing ink. Experiments show that the writing is indelible, and the operation very simple. A single die will make several thousand Impressions.—' Tlie Engineer,' 6th July.

Oysters and Mushrooms. There are very few artioleaof diet left to us to which some faddist or other will not point with a finger of horror, and tell us that it Is a fruitful source or disorder or disease. Oysters have lately been found to be dire offenders in this way, and the dainty mollusc must not be eaten miles first cooked, to kill the dis ease germs which it gathers from the mud. Another delicacy in the shape of mushrooms has more recently come un der the inauisitoriaJ hnn.
