The Gladstone Family. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Tbc Gladstone Family. I think that very few persons indeed can now bo living who remember the father of Sir. Gladstone.. I have a vivid' refcollecUon. of him as a kind ao tiou towards myself was the cause of a visit he paid to my mother, with whom I was when ho came into the room. I was sitting on a low seat iu a corner of the room, and, having shaken hands with my mother, he came up to me and gave .me the letter witji a few kind words. I raised my eyes to him as I took it. and saw a tall, quiet-looking man, simple though dignified iu manner, with somewhat heavy .features, which, according to my recollection. bore no resem blance to the striking countenance of liis distinguished sou. ... I re ceived, however, groat kindness from a much nearer relation of Mr. Gladstone's —his only sister. She was a, good many years older thau myself, aud had often had mo witli her as a child in her own home ; but after I grew up I met her again in Warwickshire, aud was then her almost dally companion...
Pretty, and Always Useful. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Pretty, and Always Useful. A convenient necktie case for fourin hands requires only a half-yard of heavy satin, padded, perfumed, edged with a heavy silk cord, and doubled over to form a long envelope to enclose the ties. A pretty decoration is a spray of Christ mas holly done In water-colour or em broidered in Roman floss for bolder ef fects. For a razor-case, here is a brand-new idea. The real particular man always has two razors,, and tries to keep them apart, so as to use them in turn and preserve the edge. Cut from chamois skin, or double-faced Canton flannel, two strips four inches wide and seven and a-half inches Jong. Fold lengthwise, bind the edges with inch-wide satin rib bon, closing one end and the sides of each case, finally sewing them firmly together. Tie the open end with a bow of ribbon, so arranged that the case may be bung up If desired. Get the quaintest ' Brownie' pin you can find to stick in the case in which Is the razor used last.

The Baby's Nap. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
The Baby's Nap. When a baby is well and dressed com fortably it should spend fully three fourths of its time in slumber. When a child is wakeful and restless it is an indication that something is wrong, p'ther over-feeding or uncomfortable clothing. On laying the baby down, see that the wrinkles are straightened out of its clothing. The little one cannot be comfortable. upon a mass of wrinkled llannels and linens. After it has slept for about an hour, turn it on the other side. It will not waken the lightest sleeper if properly done. The change of positions prevents its limbs becoming cramped, and it will sleep much longer. Kesort should never be had to opiates without the advice of a physician. I have heard of a single drop proving fatal. The brain of the infant is very susceptible to the influence of these drugs, and the gravest disorders are produced through their use. The habit of rocking a child to sleep should never be formed, although it is sometimes a great comfort to both m...
Indigestion. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Indigestion. The great thing to restore tln» dyspep tic to health is the choice of a proper diet. Individual idiosyncrasies here play such an Important part that it is impossible to lay down any hardand 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', withi Vichy or soda water, or by adding fivje 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 tbat with the cream. . Buttermilk is useful for a chang-e. Indeed it is much lauded by German physicians in the treatment o£ 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 than they do of sweet milk, however, and It is rarely that one will consent to use it for Jong...
Household Hints. The Way to Spice Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Household Hints* . The Way to Spice' Food. No other nation uses condiments to the sameextentas the Chinese. Compared with the Englishmen, Chinese, in this particular, are far ? more advanced In refinement and have higher knowledge. An Englishman uses a liberal supply of 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, but also from that of therapeutic efficiency, as Is shown In the liberal use of. ginger, saffron, and other roots of medicinal virtue. He 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 lish with boiled lemon peel. Vegetable gelatine is procured from the leaves of the water-Illy. This is used not only for its intrin...
A Predicament. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
A I'redicainent, Boon after the outbreak ot the Cuban insurrection an ..American newspaper determined to send a special correspon dent to the seat ot war. The journal in question -had been getting Home smart reports from its regular correspondent at a point in Florida, snd the special correspondent was ordered to stop at this point and take the Floridian. to Cuba -with him.' ;}n a day or two the tele graph editor received the following jjiessagre from the special : — ' Our corre spondent here seems very much disin clined to go to Cuba with me.' The editor was determined not to have his plans balked, and rent this: — 'Our Florida correspondent must obey orders and go to Cuba with you. Offer any reasonable inducements.' Not long afterwards the following reply was re ceived :— ' Our corres;-niK)f.t)t 5]en? re fuses point blank to go to Cuba with me except upon one condition, and that is that I marry her.

The Emperor's Knife and Fork. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Tlic Emperor's Knife and Fork. The German Emperor was staying some time ago in one of the cities on the shores of the Mediterranean, and. as be holds the rank of Admiral in our navy, he was invited to dinner by the Commander of the British squadron, then cruising near at hand. But when the lime for the banquet arrived, it was discovered that an important implement was missing. Where was the Kaiser's knife and fork ? For, though the .Emperor can wield sceptre, sword, and pen, be cannot use an ordinary knife and fork. His left arm is practically useless, and ho employs an ingenious contrivance which combines Jiotji knife and fork, and dues very well with it This Imperial implement had not been placed bc-side the Imperial plate, and it could not be found. Not even the Em peror's attendants knew where it was. A* picked cipw was sent ashore/ in haste, but. though the Kaiser's quarters were searched, no knife and fork could be dis covered. All this time the elaborate dinner was spoiling. ...
Curious Mistakes. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Curious Mistakes. Rather an uncommon obituary notice has just appeared in tlie Paris ' Gaz ette des Tiibunaux.' It announced that M. Candelle Bayle, President of the Appeal Court at Bastia, in Corsica, had died quite suddenly of apoplexy, and the following words were added :— ' This decision is nnal, and cannot be altered.' Evidently the last sentence was intended for another part of the paper, where the legal news is given. In France, as in England, the mistakes of the printing press often produce a comical effect, (says the ' Daily News'). One which is well remembered appeared during the second Empire In the ' Mont teur.' It bad reference to the last ill ness of Jerome, ex-King of Westphalia. A paragraph appeared giving the latest news of the patient's health, and to this was added that ' Le vleux persiste,' which might be freely translated : — 'The old man still hangs out.' The effect of such an announcement in the Emperor's own official organ may be easily imagined. The passage ...
