RECITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 29 July 1887
REO[TATLOt. If the claim of age is allowedto go f a.. thing, recitation can hold up iu heed wiLh the finest of the fins airs, for as far back s the times of Homer we find men who madeit their business to travel about from place to place recising to each audiences as ther could, attract the earliest of the Grecian poetry. As yet the stage was not, and this was the nearest approach to it known in those fs, distant days. Botthe art seems sebseqaestly to have gone out of fashion, as other methods of conveying ideas to an audience came int1 vogue, and it is only, perhaps, in comoa-r tively recent times that it has been revirve and atrained to srything like its old glory an.l even now there are nnly a limited number of men who can eoffioiently inspire shela audience with the subject ol their deliveriesto compensate for the dtaadvartages of attending recitations which foro the sole feature in am entertainment.

THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 5 August 1887
THE HOUSEHOLD. Pocx COaL.-One pound of salt pork ohoppedflne, one pint of boiling water, two ours of sugar, one cup of molasses, two tea spoonfuls of baking powder, spice to taste, one-half cop each of oltron, currants, and raising shopped fine. OLD O cssE AND DuCos,-Mature geese and ducks are considered delicaoies when properly cooked. They should be fat and firm of flesh, the excess of oil and inflexi. billiy of fibre being made aooeptable by oooking. These old birds must first be boiled a long time, and then roasted. the boiling not only bursts the fatty capsules and releases the oil, but improves the flavour and makes them more acceptable to most tastes than goslings and ducklings. To boil a goose or duck, roll It in several layers of cloth, tie carefully with cords, and drop into boiling water. Let it simmer, at least two hours. It should never boil violently. When cold, unroll it, season inside and out with salt and pepper, and stuff it as usual. Rub soft butter over it, dredg...

A ? Daily Telegraph " Shark Story. The Paris corrospondent of the " Daily Telegraph" tells at ti ,es wonderful tales. A shark story, which is published in one of his letters, may fairly be expoectod to carry oft the palm for some time to come. A diver named Quintree, he writes, had a remark able fight with a formidable fish called the boultous or bondrn, a kind of shark which infests the Breton coast at Donar nene. the other day.

THE LADIES' COLUMN FASHION ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 5 August 1887
THE LADIES' COLU"MN. Br Vrva. rAPHIO- ITEMS. Tashion Is beooming ratlonal in the matter of tournures. The ridiculous tour toree, enormously protruding, which vexed ariously ionclined spirits for the last few eae, are now almost forgotten. They have been transformed into a modest uashion, ecarcely apparent, which offers a support.to the skirt, marking the bend of the wList. Tonrnuree being less voluminoun is the upper part, skirts have more suapport in the lower. A steel circle is let in a few inches from the edge of the skirt. This ic far more graceful than having a great balloon just under the waist, and loose, limp skirts sellapesig in the lower part. Shobs and boots with stilt-like heels have long been exchanged for rational obhnesares with low, sq areheele. and the absurd peaI by which they terminated hurt so many pretty feet that it has been found quite neressary to change it for a rational shape, neither square nor pointed, hut something between the two, whiho looks graceful w...

The Mad Marquis. (CHRISTIAN UNION.) [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 5 August 1887
The Mad Margqul. (OHRISTIAN UNXON.) Once when in London he was returning home at night in a cab, and when he came to pay for his drive he imagined that the cabby overcharged him. Now, this has sometimes happened to mortals not born to be marquises, and they have by angry expos; tulation done what they. could to modify such unreasonable demands. So common place a proceeding, however, was all too tame for the fiery spirit and humorouse fancy of Lord Sandford. Raemembering that he was for the moment the guest of his uncle, the Right Reverend Archbishop of Ar. magh, Primate of Ireland. he exclaimed, " Wait a minute, you scoundrel ; I'll soon settle you. I11 send out the Primate to you I". And swiftly his lordship vanished through the hall door. There upon the rack hung the arehbiahop's right reverend shovel hat, and there, too, was his asbleohued and most clerical coat. In a moment, the marquis had invested himself with these solema episcopal garments, and then he sallied forth to confr...
