Of all the pictures of domestic life which abouiip in the pages of the poet Cowper, none is more truthful than that described in the ' Winter livening,' whire thecijuipage of the tea-table occupies a prominent posi tion. As we read we cau realize the scene, but to complete the picture of quiet enjoy ment it is necessary that wo should he certain that the beverage tilling the cups is of that unequalled mid delicious character obtained by using the Packet Teas of the Oriental Tea Company. — Adv.

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. Mr. Hurley, the member for Hartley, seeking tlie approbation of bis con stituents for liis action with reference to the position of the railway station, called a meeting at Lithgow on Satur dn.v. nt which the feelintr was so stronc I against Mr. Hurley tliat a show of I hands was not called for.

DINING IN THE GERMAN CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

DINING IN THE GERMAN CAPITAL. The Bei'linese are scarcely of a hospit able turn, and most certainly are not a dinner-giving people. Tliey regret, perhaps, the old simple sociability of bygone times, at which intellectual intercourse was the main contribution, although wafer bread and butter played its part. Prior to the Bor.se ' crash ' the Berlin haute finance distinguished itself by giving luxurious banquets, bnt since that time the financial horizen has remained more or less clouded, and these grand dinners and suppers are little known now. Even the well introduced stranger, oil arriving at Berlin, has to depend for his experience of the native cuisine oil the restaurants, and the hotel tables d'hote, at which lie will not unfrequently dine in company with tho sort of men who with vis would dine at their clubs. On entering a first class Berlin restaurant about 2 o'clock the chances are that von will find your self in company with well-dressed ladies, superior officers, and even p...

An Irishman wanted to know if the hero of Greece, ' Mark O'Bozzaris,' wasn't a sou of the old sod. A well-known dramatist can say rude things. Someone said to him, ' You want a new hat.' ' That's quite true,' he replied, ' but why say sny it? I never told you you wanted a new head.' Climatic influences are fertile sources of disease. Malaria is a sure, swift destroyer of human life. But if the system is fortified, it is as a bulwark of defence against the assaults of atmos pheric poison. To strengthen the system is to touify the parts, and stimulate healthy action of the functions, Udolpho Wolfe's Schiedam Aroniaiic Schnapps produces these effects. It diffuses a gentle glow that permeates the very substance of the cellular tissues, builds up the organic structure, and thus throws out defiance to zymotic operations. — A»r. '

POINTS IN A SADDLE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

POINTS IN A SADDLE HORSE. Thk most desirable points in a saddle horse arc what are known as the saddle gaits, and of these the most important is the walk. This is the most important, because the easiest one for both hrrsc mill Tt ic n -rnif l.tr =, ! 1 horses, but few of tlieni can be denomi nated good walkers. The average rate of speed at which horses walk, either under saddle or in harness, is not over three miles ail hour, while a good walker can make five miles with ease ; and we have known some that would walk nearly if not quite six miles per hour under the saddle. Such horses will make wonderful journeys with great ease to themselves as well as to their riders. Next to this as a desirable saddle gait comes what is usually called the foxtrot. Nearly all horses will take a few steps in this gait when going from an ordinary walk into a trot, or when changing from the trot to a walk ; but very few horses will take this gait and keep it unless they have been trained to it It is sl...

THE FRENCH EXPEDITION IN EQUATORIAL AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

THE FRENCH EXPEDITION IN EQUATORIAL AFRICA. The French Geographical Society will shortly hold a special meeting at the Sarbonne to welcome Lieutenant Sa vorgnan de Brazza and Dr. Bellay, who have just returned to France from their three years' expedition in equa torial Africa. The expedition was undertaken for the purpose of tracing the coui'se of the River Ogowai in the French settlement of Gaboon ; and at tne enrt ot lieutenant savorgnan de Brazza and Dr. Bellay landed upon the west coast, accompanied by M.

Endorsed by an Entire Peoplk. — The remarkable Swiss preparation known as the ' Dew of the Alps,' is believed to be the only remedy in the whole world which has been endorsed by a whole nation for a period of nearly five hundred years. Since the time when the aromatic lie -b which forms the medicinal basis of the cordial was discovered in the canton of Glarus towards the close of the 15th century, there has never been any difference of opinion among the Swiss people as to its wonderful properties as a specific for disorders of the stomach aud nerves, aud as a preventive of disease. It is conceded by the most eminent physi cians, that when nothing else will rally a broken-down system and air impaired * constitution, a persistent daily use of of the ' Dew of the Alps' (Rosee des Alps) will accomplish that object. This : delicious and potent aromatic cordial is ' . / ' now for sale throughout the ^ustraliau ; colonies, — Messrs, Mo^s and C^.

THE "MISSING LINKS" OF A GRAND HOMEWARD RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

THE « MISSING- LINKS' OF A GRAND HOMEWARD RAIL ROAD. A journey from Perth, or Sydney, or Melbourne to London in a fortnight is an undertaking yet reserved for the people at the antipodes of Great Britain. All that is wanted for its accomplishment is the outlay of the comparatively trifling sum of thirty-six or forty millions sterling. A con tinuous line of about 8,000 miles of railroad from the Straits of Dover to Singapore, a direct steam line from Singapore to the nearest point 011 the west coast of Australia (North-West Capo) — the distance being about 1,500 miles more in length with the com pletion of the railways destined to join Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney — would be all that is required to establish this gigantic highway of nations. View ing the transcendental importance of such a route does not the sum of forty millions or even fifty millions sterling appear a mere bagatelle! Taking into account the several countries whose interests would be advanced by the construction ...

ARTISTIC ROME IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

ARTISTIC ROME IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY. In the eighteenth century, as in the sixteenth, Rome was sterile of arts and artists, but it was once more the market to which was brought the productions of other provinces. As the town of jLiaiy wiitae men 01 au nationalities naa most met, where every period of history had left the greatest trace, wliere every one found most to suit his taste — as the huge centre of eclecticism — Rome was at once unable to produce anything herself and able to absorb all that was produced elsewhere ; for great works of art are born of a single locality and a single period, are destined for the whole and all time. A hundred years ago Rome was a musical centre ; it alone had preserved the music of the sixteenth century as a sort of relic, aud the living music of the eighteenth was poured into it on all sides. The nobles, ignorant and pedantic, were as in fatuated for musicians as they had been forty years before for writers, with the addition that the former w...

JOHN KEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

JOHN KEATS. Chesnut curls cluster around a brow which rises up like a very temple of mind. The blue eyes are changeful, now soft, now fiery. The nose is well shaped. The lower part of the face does not correspond to the beauty of the upper ; it is narrow, and the lips are too full. Still, iu spite of this defect, it is a face that attracts and interests us, a face that has uncommon characters engraved upon it, a face that some how clings to the memory. His figure is tall and well proportioned, and liis broad chest and strong shoulders suggests not the faintest idea of pulmonary disease. He has a hatred of injustice and tyranny that prompts him, as he walks along, to stop and take the part of every little misused street boy. He has a passionate love for beauty, which makes his face as he passes through the country on a bright day seem a mirror of the fair world around him ; which draws from liini the words, ' Never have I known such true delight as in watching the growth of flowers.'...

TOO FAT BY HALF. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

TOO FAT BY HALF. There is much force in the assertion made by a recent writer in the Standard that there is a great mistake made in breeding cattle for fat instead of aiming at the nroihietiriii of lean uip.i.t. Tlie majority of meat consumers will prefer a moderately loan piece of meat to a mass of fat ; and in a hot climate like that of Australia fat meat is not so requisite for the support of heat and combustion as it is ill Lapland or Green land. The writer says : — ' Having been au extensive breeder and feeder of cattle and sheep upwards of forty years, and knowing the requirement of the times, I felt surprised to find from your issue of the 13th instant that one animal, probably a mass of obesity in the possession of some ptofessional ex hibitor, can win prizes in money and plate to the enormous amount of .£220, thus discouraging the production of lean wholesome flesh, so scarce at Christmas, yet much in demand. John Bull's appetite turned against fat during the unprecedented ...
