Hints for Housewives. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Hints for Housewives. WaBh grained wood work in cold tea. Wash rusty gilt frames in spirits of wine. After peeling onions, muBtard water will free the hands from all od*ur. Always begin grating at the flower end of the nutmeg instead of the stem. Wipe flat-irons on a web cloth with kerosene and they will not sjorch the clothing. Copperas mixed with whitewash, used for store rooms, etc., will keep insect life away. To clean brass gas fixtures rub them with cut lemons and then wash them off in hot water. Fresh meat after beginming to sour will sweeten if placed out of doors in the cool over night. In straining jelly through a bag, let the juice drip as long as it will, but never squeeze the bag. A raw egg, if swallowed immediately, will effec tually detach a fish bone that has stuck in the throat. When about to scald milk, wet the saucepan with cool water to prevent the milk from scorching. Bits of camphor laid about closets where mice are wont to frequent will draw their visits to a ...

A Dog Fiend. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

A Dog Fiend. In ' The Story of My Dogs from Year to Year,' in ' The Dog Owners' Annual for 1891,' Dr. Gordon StableB tells a tale of the ferocity developed by a young mastiff through teasing. He says : — About ten years ago I took down with me to RamBgate a month-old puppy, to present to a friend of mine, the widow of an army officer. He was a ehampion bred mastiff puppy and brindled. Shortly after thiB the lady went to reside in Boulogne, and the dog in time grew up into a splendid fellow. But woe is me! the school children had teased bim till he had become a perfect Bavage, per mitting no one to tonch him except his mis tress and her maid. She was fined time nfter time, and finally had an order to either destroy or, banish him from the country. She chose the latter alternative, and begged me to accept the dbg. Now I flatter myself I can tauae almost any dog, but Captain was undoubtedly the devil in ' form canine. He was placed in a barred cell in the forepart of the ship, and star...

HARRISON, JONES, AND DEVLIN'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

nARRISON. JONES, AND DEVLIN' S REPORT. Wool. — The fortnightly Bales were resumed to day, and our catalogue for the occasion contained 5G5 bales,, almost all of which were scoured. The Queanbeyan Wool Company again supplied the most attractive parcel in the catalogue, and_ al though the sample was hardly so good as previous lots, owing to the wool itself being somewhat irregular, prices offered reached 13Jd, being the highest quotation of the sale, and quite equal, comparatively speaking, to rates of a fortnight ago. An attractive line of scoured fleece from the works of Messrs. Swinbourne and Stephen, of beautiful color and scoured in first-class style, reached 12Jd, at which figure it was held over. A station scoured clip marked 5VG from Eulo, Queensland, rather dull in color and showing signs of a hard season, the staple being tender and mushy in places, was sold at ll$d per lb. Other lots were irregular and faulty, and met with a fair demand. In greasy sorts no standard lots wer...

Another View of the Meat Export Trade. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Another View of tlie Meat Export Trade. A writer in Eairplay, a London trade journal, on February 9,' says : — Tbe report and balance-sheet of Nelson Bros,, Limited, which iB published in this number of Fairplay , throws rather a sombre light on the New Zea land frozen-meat trade. The Company, as the report states, has done badly, and it may well be hoped that the causeB of its disasters are of a temporary nature and likely to pass away. Of that part of the business, however, I nm not in n position to speak with confi dence ; what seems clear iB that the net earn' inga of the year 1893 were insufficient to pay the debenture interest by something like £1,000. In 1892 the net earnings were £35738 against £6,239 in 1893. Now what is the cause of this unnatural and, as it appears to me to be, unnecessary state of affairs? Here is a great frozen-meat company, by far the largest in the colony, and controlling con siderably more than half the mutton grown there, carrying on its business pr...

A Vigilant Police. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

A Vigilant Police. The reign of Napoleon III. in France was characterised by many arbitrary arrests, made on mere suspicion, by a police which had no respect for individual rights. A public man of the time, GrammontCade rouase by name, took advantage of his acquaintance with the prefect of the police to protest against this state or attairs. lie de clared that matters had come to such a point that no citizen, however innocent, wa's sure of being able to reach his home at night without being arrested. The prefect denied that this was true. ' Will you wager a thousand francs, Grammont-Caderousse asked, ' that I shall not be arrested to-morrow without having oommitted one unlawful act or having said one word ?' ' Certainly I will,' answered the prefect. ' Very well. The wager is made.' It seemed to Grammont-Caderousse that, in the interest of public safety, he waB justi fied in the course which he proposed to take. The next day he dressed in poor and shabby clothes, went to a boulevard...

Cleverly Managed. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Cleverly Managed. It iB often difficult for a portrait-painter to obtain a man's best, or at least his most natural, expression. On one occasion, when an artiot was painting Paganini's portrait, he found tbe musician strangely destitute of animation, and realised that he mast find some method or roneins bim. He began humming the tune of a little motivo in one of Pa ganini'a concertos. The musician looked up, alert. ' You have been in Strasburg ?' asked he. ' Never.' ' Then how did you bear that air ?' ' I heard you play it.' ' No, if you have not been in Strasburg !' ' STea, in London.' 'That concerto I composed for my first appearance in Strasburg, and I never played it in London.' ' Its was the night you played an oibligato , accompaniment to PaBta.' ' Ah, Pasta !' be exclaimed, and his beauti ful eyes brightened at the remembrance of tbe pight. He seemed to glow at the recol lection of the memorable occasion when two such artists stood together, and were mutually inspired by each...

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Br the Vagrant.] | In the races decided on the flat in England dur ing the past season — omitting races for hunters — a larger number of horses have taken part than in any previous season — 2602, the nearest approach to this record being the 2569 chronicled in 1870, the next on tho list being 2559 in 1892. The increase of the past season over that or 1870 is almost entirely in two-year-olds, as will be seen by the appended table, and it is painful to note that whereas as many as Gil horses of five years old and upwards ran 23 years ago, the number was reduced to as few as 381 in 1893 : — 2-year 3-year 4-year 5 years Tear olds olds olds and up Total 1870 ... 807 ... 709 ... 412 ... 611 ... 2569 1893 ... 1106 ... 720 .... 395 ... 381 ... 2G02 The races over different distances in which the 2602 horses of last season took part show, as usual the great preponderance of scurries, and I may remark that races over mile courses have increased by 156 during the p...

But she hardly seemed to take any notice of what he had said. ' I'm very sorry, just as sorry as you can be, about that advertisement,' she went on, hurriedly ' And I m going right away now. I hope I haven't put you to much trouble.' ' But it isn't time for the stage for at least two hours !' exclaimed Tom. ' I thought I would walk a little ways,' she answered. She did not say, what was true, that lier last money was spent for her passage to Boltby. ' But wait !' cried Tom, almost stammering now in lii3 eagerness to Epeak before she really disap- 1 peared through the open door into the yard.

SOW VETCHES WITH BARLEY FOR FEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

SOW VETCHES WITH BABIiET FOB PEED. We (Sural Australian ) some years since re eommonded tbe growing of vetches with barley as a feed crop. The combination has been adopted somewhat generally, and various ap plications have been made concerning the crop from dairymen and others, who see that winter and early spring feeding has become a necessity of modern dairying. April is a good time for growing both parley and vetches. Tho method of combining the two found to 1 suit in this country is to sow from u bushel to a bushel and a half ot vetches per acre, and harrow the seed in. Then sow from 40lb. to 501). of barley per acre over the vetcheB, and harrow, or roll if the weather is dry The barley springs first, and makes a proper support for the vetches, the two growing in a solid muss from 4ft Gin to 5»t in heiyht, and making excellent feed, either green or for eusilii»e. Such a crop requires clean, rich, well-farmed land, of course.

Farm and Garden. AUSTRALIAN WINE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Farm and Garden. AUSTBALIA5T WINE MAKING. In an article read at a recent meeting of the Royal Society, Brisbane, tbe writer (Dr. Luterer) says : — ' Much of the stuff sold here is not grape wine at all. Look at the quantity of wine made and sold by growers, and compare it with the tiny vineyards behind their houses. A hundred bunches of crapes must furnish four hogsheads of colostial wine ! and 5001b. of ths meanest sugar (for l&d per lb.) are used up in manufacturing the precious fluid. The fermentation does not take place through the influence of the vegetable plotoplasma contained in the grapes but through different species of bacilli, which change the sugar not only into alcohol but into other substances of an acrid and bitter taste and a ' nauseous smell. Other kinds of wine sold as colonial wine are really grape wine — that is to sdy, they are made after the method of the Frenchman Petiot. The grapes are crushed and the juice is separated from them. Water is then put o...
