There is a saying that open confession is good for the soul, if it is I have boen a fool many times in my life and it is vory consoling to think of, but then, of course, lam an excoption to tho balanco of tho human race But my friends tho Rifleman and Bird Fancier, have omittod giving their names.

A School of Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 19 May 1877
A School ol* Agriculture. THE following valuable letter, which we think is of interest to tho residents in all the country districts, appeared in a late number of the " Glen Innes Guardian " : ; Sir-Being a farmer, and having the interest of that body at heart, I will, with your kind permission, throw out a few hints that may be useful in the consideration of the present unsettled question-a Model Farm. .There is no doubt the idea of a Model Farm is a good ono, but I think that a far more useful one could be got up, at very little more expense to the district, namely a School of Agriculture. We are certainly a very young community to entertain such high notions; butas we have had £1000 Handi caps and successful Shows, I see no just reason why we should not form and carry out such au institution as the one which I have mentioned. A Prize Model Farm would be well to look at, but, I ask those who have a knowledge of agricultural pursuits, what material benefit would it« be to the count...

Household Items. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 19 May 1877
Household Items. Tlic following suggestions aro, of course, intended for thc masculine heads of families j but thc Many unfortunate women who find that on their shoulders rests threcfourths of tho cares of the household, can, in case of need, easily put them into use, as time rather than strength is required. Never allow a door to croak for want of oil, or to shut so hard as to require slamming to make it latch. For this purpose pass round once a week at some regular time, say Saturday evening or Monday morning, with a drop of oil on a feather, or on' the tip 6f thc finger, and give every rubbing part, latch, hinge, &c, a touch. Scissors, which di'e inclined to work hard, can also bc greatly improved in this way. Ventilation w'ould be more easily accomplished and more certainly performed, and rooms kept with purer and healthier air, if windows vvcr made to slide easily. If not hung by' pulleys and. weights, let a carpenter add good freely ' working catches. Nevor permit á br...

Thc Human Hair. « HALL'S Journal of Health ' has an excellent article on that generally interesting subject,' .the human hair, in ibo course of which it .condemns in its usual unequivocal way the - numberless hair restoratives ; and as a simple .remedy for boldness it proposes the following wash :-Pour three pints of hot water on four handfuls of tho stems and leaves- of the :garden " box," boil it for fifteen minutes in a closed vessel, then pour it into an 'earthera jar, and let it stand ten hours ; next strain the liquid and add three . tablespoons of .cologne water ; wash the head with this .every morning ; it is cleansing and tonic ; ?.and if the root bulbs of the hair are not .destroyed (which is the case where the' scalp looks smooth and shiny, and then there is no remedy), the hair will begin to grow with vigour. If this wash fuila after a few weeks perseverance, the baldness . may be considered incurable because the structure of hair growth is destroyed. But a more certain ...

Origin of Vaccination. ! Ala, honor to the name of the immortal Jenner, who sleeps in his quiet grave on the green cliffs of Folkestone. What a glorious morning " for England, home, and beanty " was that of the 14th of May, 1796, the birthday of vaccination 1 On that day, matter was taken from the hand of Sarah Nelmes, who had been infected while milking her master's cows, and this matter was inserted by two superficial incisions into the arm of James Phipps, a healthy boy of about eight years of ago, He went tlirough the disease in a regular -and satisfactory manner ; but the most agitating part of the trial still remained to be performed. &lt;-It was needful to ascertain whether he was free from the contagion of small-pox. This point, so full . of anxiety to Dr. Jenner, was fairly put to issue on the 1st of the following July. Small-pox matter, taken immediately and directly from a small-pox pustule, was care fully inserted by several incisions, but no ?disease followed. N...

Tales of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 19 May 1877
Talcs of thc Sea. THE history of a. ship " from her cradle to lier grave " muat necessarily be of a chequered and, to a certain extent, of a romantic nature. Sea tales of a more of less startling hair-on end character have thrilled most of us during tho adolescent period,'and the wash of the breaking wave and the moan of the gathering storm at night have made us wrap closer in our beds, and dose in the self-satisfied knowledge that we aré safe on dry land. But the stories to be told hy the muttering wind, as it comes over the sea, of the crack of cordage and wail of drowning men', never reach the shore, and as the tide comes in with the morning no trace is apparent of tho lives and treasures engulphed in tho hungry deep. Sometimes wo who stay at home are allowed to share in learning something of the wonders seen and experienced by those " who go down to the sea in ships." During the jmst week, for instance, the newspapers have beon reproducing, for the bonefit of a wonder stricken p...
