A MISTAKEN MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 April 1887

A MISTAKEN MARRIAGE. Some time ago a gentleman, well known among com mercial travellers, stopped at a boarding house noted for old time silver ware and deep dishes. The house was jperated by a widow, with whom Juckles, the traveller, fell very much in love, that is commercially in love, for Juckles has a wide open eye for business. ' What a fine house this would be,' he mused. ' The widow is very handsome and hasn't any particular education, but hanged if it don't stand a man in hand to make the best shift he can. I'll marry this woman and have a home.'1 Next evening he requested a business interview with the woman,- and while they were seated in the parlour, Juckles, who can be very tender, said : 44 Mrs. Hotsel, during my very short stay in this house I tinxra honnma trorir miinh a.t.t.aftliPfl trt Will ' Lor, Mr. Juckles.' 'Yes, my dear Mrs. Hotsel, lam a peculiar man'and my love is inexplicable,' and he looked at the furniture. ' I have never been in love before.' ' Lor, Mr. Juc...

HELEN'S BABIES. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 June 1887

HELEN'S BABIES. [continued. ] All tots was lucid and disgusting, but utterly unproductive of button-hooks, and meanwhile the breakfast was growing cold. I succeeded in buttoning Toddle's ehoes with my fingers, splitting most of my nails in the operation. I had been too busily engaged with Toddie to pay any attention to LJudge, whom 1 now found about half dressed and trying to catch flies on the window-pane. Snatching Toddio, I started for the dining-room, when Budge remarked reprovingly : — ** Uncle Harry, you wasn't dressed when the bell rang, and you oughtn't to have any breakfast.' True enough — I was minus collar, cravat, and coat. Hurrying these on, and starting again, I was once more arrested : — 'Uncle Harry, must I brush my teeth this morning ?' *? No — hurry up — come down without doing anything more, if you like, but come — it'll be dinner time before we get breakfast.' Then that imp was moved, for the first time that morning, to something like gooi-nature, and he exclaime...

HOW TO EXTRACT HONEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 June 1887

HOW TO EXTRACT HONEY. When any of the combs havebeen sealed over they are ready for extracting, and the honey they contain will be found to be beautifully pure and clear. Sometimes, however, there is a sudden flow of honey, and the bees will rush into the hives in great quantities, and will appropriate 'every empty cell they find', encroaching upon the brood chamber and hindering the queen in her important avocation of egg laying, which means, of course, a speedy diminution in the strength of the colony, and must not be permitted. The houey must be at once removed, and empty combs or frames, filled with comb foundation, placed in the centre of the hive. But this honey will not be sealed over ; it is not ripe, and requires to be submitted to the steady temperature of the hive (about 90 degrees) for some days before the bees will seal it up ; it is thin and watery, and must not be allowed to mix with that which is ripe. Attention to this constitutes the great point of superiority of e...
