"distant. Then he clambers nimbly up to its top, chooses his. direction,, and launches forth again, (piito possibly to the same tree from which he started. Ilis flight is simply a, sailing downward at sul angle of a,bout -J5deg., with a graceful sweep upward at the last to enable him to alight easily.

The Nose and Character. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

The Nose and Character. You will rarely see a very small or insignificant nose on the l'nce of it man of marked individuality. We may not perhaps go so far as to say that " the nose is a signpost that points to cliarac-' 'ter" ; but we may say that a great in dividuality very seldom lias an insigui ceut nose. Napoleon used "to say, "Give me a mau with a good abundance of nose, when I want a hard-working man." Certainly, a small, short nose upon a full-grown man's face always gives an expression of weakness, and a sort of childish look. General Sommer, commanding the Aus trian brigade in Bosnia, lias been ex perimenting , successfully with dogs for war purposes. A hundred and fifty dogs have been taught to carry the malls in the mountains to distances that occupy them two or three hours.

Household Hints. The Way to Spice Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

'Household Hints The Way to Spice Food. No other nation uses condiments to the same extent as the Chinese. Compared with the Englishmen, Chinese, in this particular, aro far more advanced in refinement and have higher knowledge. An Englishman uses a liberal supply or mustard and pepper, and corrodes his stomach with violent acids, whereas the Chinaman chooses his condiments not only from the point of view of deli cacy of. flavour, hut also from that of therapeutic efficiency, as is shown in the liberal use of ginger, saffron, and other roots of medicinal virtue. lie always boils horse radish, black and red pepper, and mustard, thus removing nine-tenths of their fiery properties,-and' reducing them to a delicately pungent paste, suitable for all sorts of meat. They cook tomatoes with orange juice! and stewed lemon peel, and improve the; flavour of insipid fish with boiled lemon, peel. Vegetable gelatine is procured from the leaves of the water-lily. This is used not only for its intr...

Indigestion. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

Indigestion. Tiie great tiling to restore the dyspep tic to health is the choice oil a proper diet.. Individual idiosyncrasies liere play such an important part that it YIs impossible to lay down any liard-a.ndr fast rules whereby diet may be regu lated. Obstinate cases of indigestion may demand a rigid adherence to a milk diet. This often means a hard struggle ; but, by diluting the milk one-third with Vichy or soda water, or by adding five to ten gains of bicarbonate of soda, or a pinch of salt to each tumblerful, the difficulties will be moderated. In many cases skimmed milk is better borne than that with the cream. Buttermilk Is useful for a change. Indeed it is much lauded by German physicians in the treatment of dyspepsia, one of whom says: "When the patient is hungry,' let him eat buttermilk : when he is thirsty, let him drink, buttermilk." Pa tients tire of buttermilk , more readily tlian they do of sweet' milk, however, and it is rarely that one will consent to. use; it for...

When Cigars Were First Smoked. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

When Cigars Were First Smoked. According to a French authority who has been making investigations in this subject^ tobacco in the shape of cigars was not introduced into France till the return of the French army from Spain in 1823. This fact is on the authority of Hip polyte Auger, the dramatic author, who records frequently meeting on his way back to Paris with officers returning from Spain; who had generally cigars In their mouths. Another document, however, carries back the use of the cigar to a slightly earlier period. The " Hermit of the Chaussee d'Antln" (1SX3), going to see his nephew, a young officer at Paris,; finds him at his hotel in morning costume and smoking a Havana. The taste for cigars seems at this time to have been suHlciently extended to make them a common article in the stock of every grocer who was careful to cater to the wants of hifj customers. " Why was the bee selected as a model of industry V" ivsUed Tillinghast. " Be cause business with him is always hum ...

The Soldiers Tricked, v : During a shooting1 exhibition by some English soldiers in the presence of an Afghan chief, the latter noticed, to his astonishment, that birds, .were the' favourite butt of the marksmen, who but seldom missed their aim. Whereupon he declared that it was far more difficult, to hit an egg. : . One of the English officers laughed at .the supposition, but the chief stood his ground; and the matter was put to the test. An, egg was suspended from a wall and the soldiers fired at it, but, strange to say, riot one of them hit the; mark. '• The officers .kept their countenances,: arid'excused the non-success of the firing party on the ground of the difficulty of the tiling. At last a soldier, fired over the egg, and cut .the thread to which the egg wasjCastened, and it fell to the ground withouFSreaklng. ■ '•■■The mystery was solved.
