HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

HOUSEHOLD. Flying Glassware-— Glass is frequently said by servants to ' fly of itself.' It never flies from the thin to the thick part, but the reverse invariably. We once knew a servant girl who said a richly cut sugar bowl of a flanged shape had flown, and she found the pieces inside it, so that by her experience class not only flies but jumps. Sudden change of temperature causes flyage. For example, glass kept in a cold frosty pantry will fly when brought into a hot room, so a glass from a warm place will ; fly when ice is put into it. Thick ice plates i in glass should never be used, nor should ice plates be touched by a warm hand when in use. It is best to put them upon a china plate. ! China dishes, or even the common earthen ware, should never be put into the oven or ?upon the hot plate. Warm water, not hot, will make them sufficiently heated for use. Glass dishes should never have hot things placed upon them ; flyage is greatly pre vented if the dishes be warmed gradually. I...

The total population of the colony as on April 5 is sriven as l,138,84fi persons, Whom 594,080 were males and 539.766 females. These figures show an increase of more than a quarter of a million persons since the the census of 1881, the exact number on that occasion being 452,083 males, and 410, 263 females, or a total of 862.346.

Rifle Shooting, STANLEY v. YACKANDANDAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 May 1891

llifle Shooting. STANLEY v. YACKANDANDAH. An interesting match took place at the local butts on Saturday last, be tween the Stanley and Yackandandah clubs. The weather was fine, but the day being rather bright, causing a mirage from the creek, the shooting was not as good generally as could be desired. There were no very great scores, 60 not being reached by any man on either side. The Yackan dandah team did very even shooting there being only one man below forty. The Stanley team had three or four men who collapsed. The local club had 55 points to spare, and this being their first match they feel elated at scoring a win. The best of feeling prevailed on both sides during the match, and not the slightest hitch occurred. The date of the return match will be decided upon at an early date. The following are the scores : — Y ACKA WD AND AH . 400 500 Tl. Capt. EL DunEtan. ... 31 24 — 55 J. Molyneux ... ... 24 13 — 37 J. Priestly ... ... 27 20 — 47 H. Feddersen ... ... 28 22 — 50 R.

Longer if y. ? j Nine hundred and ninety persons in s ] thousand would say that a baby In the j cradle woald be likely to live ioncer than a j man of G5. but statistics prove indisputably j that 500 in every 1000 infants die before tbe \ age of 5 years is recorded, while oat of 1000 healthy men aged 55 more than 500 of them will be alive In five, aye In ten years, or even a longer time. So it will be seen that a man of 65 may be considered younger than an infant as far as his chances of future life are concerned. When are we rid ? Prof. Faraday holds that the duration of life in man aud animal is five times the period of growth; man's growth requires twenty years : he she-aid. therefore, under ordinary circumstances, live to be 100 : infancy extending to the 20th year: yoath to the 50th, when the cissaes become firm : virility to 75, and old age from 75 to 100. ?
