TURKISH INFATUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
TURKISH INFATUATION, An, exceedingly strange story was brought in the other day. Strange though it is, I can vouch for its accuracy. Near 'Gusinje lived a wealthy Turk, who owned 2000 sheep. He was also blessed with a dog of such faithfulness and sagacity that, although the country is broken in the ex treme, for twenty years he never lost a sheep. Some week's ago this noble animal died, full of years and honours. His master was at first inconsolable, but finally he went to the mollab, set forth the marvellous skill and singular fidelity of the deceased animal, and ended by re questing for it burial according to all tlhe rites .of the Churcle. The Hodja was astounded, as well he might be. However, he assented, "But," said 'he, "you must give me seventy pounds" (Turkish). "I will give you a thousand," replied the sorrowing Turk, "if you will only bury him like a man." 'Well, this extraordinary ceremonywasperformed. The mollahs went through all the ceremony, the mourners wept, and the ...

MR. SERVICE AT CASTLE MAINE. (FR?OM OU OWN CORnESPONDENT.) MELBOURNE, Thes DAT. The Premier delivered a lengthy and exhaustive address at Castlemaine last; night. He said he was compelled to go home in consequence of failing health. He thought Mr. Gillies the best loade* for an intserim Ministry to carry oe business until the country had pronounced upon it. He thought that Government by Coalition should be maintained, Mr. Gillies and Mr. Deakin leading their re spective parties, and said that an attempt wus made to revive the former party cries and voices, they would 'only be the ghosts of their former selves. The putrid corpses of the old pasties and the old cries were offensive to the sight, smell, and touch of the whole people of Victoria.

MY RUSSIAN MATE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
MY RUSSIAN MATE. Bv OTA URTr. It is now more than thirty years since the events I am going to narrate occurred; yet, after the lapse of considerably more than a quarter of a century-a time during which I1 have received my lot of care and trouble, my share of misery and happiness-as I look back, I recall all the facts as though they had happened 'but a short time previously. They are pictured before my mind's eye with a vividness osuch as greatly surprises even myself, events of a subsequent date being in some cases almost forgotten. The im pression which the incidents stamped upon my mind at the time, and the inte rest and pity which I felt for the unfortsu nate person who at tshat time appeared to mne to have more than a fair share of this world's tribulations, doubtless accounts for thietenacity which in this case charac terises my memory. We take a pen, and on paper, by the aid of ink, we represent something; withaleadpencilwe go through theosame performance. After alapseoftime, ...

DRAMATIC NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
DRAMATIC NOTES. Mdme. Bernhardt swooned twice on the stage one night recently, during the per formance of Thiodora" at the Porto St. Martin. She became unwell during the fourth act, and almost immediately fainted away before the footlights. She was at once taken behind the scenes, and M. IMarais, who plays the part of Justinian, formally announced her illness to the pub lic. Shortly afterwards, however, Mdme. Bernhardt, thinking she had completely recovered from her indisposition, resolved to continue the performance. But the exertion was too much for her sorely-tried strength, as she again lost conscionuness and fell at the feet of Marcellus justas she was about to stab him to the heart with her golden hairpin. The performance was accordingly suspended. . Mr. Conway will be the Faust, Miss Ellen Terry the Margaret, and Mr. Irving, of course, Mephistopheles, in the new pro duction of "Faust," at the Lyceum.

HOUSEKEEPERS' ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
HOUSEKEEPERS' ROOM. A Brazilian physican, Dr. Ramos, states that refrigeration of the lobe of the ear will stop hiccough, whatever its cause may be. Very slight refrigeration will answer, the application of cold water being suffi cient. Any gold jewellery that an immersion in water will not injure, can be beautifully cleaned by shaking it well in a bottle nearly full of warm soap-suds, to which a little prepared chalk has been added, and afterwards rinsing it in clear, cold water, and wiping it dry. Crape may be renovated by thordughly brushing all dustfromn the material, sprink ling with alcohol, and rolling in newspaper, commencing with the paper and crape to gether, so that the paper may be bdtween every portion of the material. Allow it to remain so until dry. A teaspoonful of borax put in the last Water in which clothes are rinsed will whiten them wonderfully. Pound the borax so that it will dissolve easily. This is especially good to remove the yellow that time gives to white ...

AUSTRALIAN WINES. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 15 January 1886
AUSTRALIAN WINES. (To the Editor of the Globe.) Sm,--Having read your article on Aus tralian wines which appeared in your issue of 11th instant, and whilst rejoicing with you that the English ports are open to our wines at a reduced rate of duty, it is a mis take to imagino that all Australian wines are strong and full bodied, as they vary in strengthl according to soil and climate. Wines are produced in the Hunter River districts (notably the Paterson and Williams) of the most light and delicate description, and would compare favour ably with some of the Rhino wines, there fore I dee no reason why we should not be able to compete with France and Germany as well as Spain in years to come. On the other hand wines produced in Albury and other districts arc very strong and full bodied,in some instances resembleliqueurs; these wines are most valuable for blending purposes.-I am, yours, &e.
