Denmark Dairies. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Denmark Dairies. So carefully are germs avoided in the dairies of Denmark that the celebrated butter of the country, much of which is sent to England, is washed when neces sary in water that has been boiled. The butter is, however, ,rarely washed, but is first worked over • byT hand by girls who are scrupulously clean,, and. afterwards finished by -machinery. This butter, which is made, with the greatest" care, from milk that is strained through flan nel and,, afterward filtered through clean gravel, is white in colour, when finished, and is artificially coloured. It is very little salted when used at home, but niore or less salt is added when it is sent as far as England. . It is said to retain its fine quality when shipped better than any butter known.: As an incentive to fur nish only pure milk; the owners of the cows are. under contract to notify the buyers at once if there is any sickness .in: their herd.. The milk is then bought from them and paid for at the usual price, but i...

Brotherless Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Brotherless Women. " Tlie Sister of Four Brothers" writes to the •" Spectator" I was much in terested in your article in the " Specta tor" of the 11th May on " Brotherless Women," and thank you for it. My observation compels me to the belief that girls who have no brothers grow, up with such ignorance of young men's daily life and faults, failings, arid; weakv nesses, that .they idealise them,: believe all they say, and are in danger of accept-' ing the first, lover who makes advances. " No man is a hero to his valet de chambre."' I do not forget that Garlyle says it is/because the valet is incapable of .valuing and appreciatinga hero, but this I know—that a girl who is in the midst of a family of boys is not very likely to.be disillusioned after marriage. She is near enough to see the foibles and vanities of her brothers without the softening influences of perspective. Slie is now: and then snubbed,- some of her; conceit taken out of . her by brotherly candour, and in the main is m...
Curious mistakes. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Curious mistakes. Rather an uncommon obituary notice lias just appeared in' the Pails " Gaz ette ties Tribunaux." 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 final, and cannotbe altered." Evidently, the' last sentence; was intended, for another part of the paper, where the legal news is' given. In Prance, 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 " Moni teur." It had reference to the last ill ness of Jerome, ex-ICing of Westphalia. A paragraph appeared giving the latest news of tlie patient's health, and to this was added that " Le vieux perslste," which might bo freely translated :— " The old man still liangs out." The effect of such an announcement in "the Umpcror's own oflleial organ may be easily Imagined. T...
The Emperor's Knife and Fork. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
The Emperor's Knife and Fork. The German Emperor was staying some time ago in one of the cities on the shores of the Mediterranean, ant), as he holds the rank of Admiral in our navy, lie was invited to dinner by the Commander of the'British squadron, then cruising near at hand. But when the time for the banquet arrived, it was discovered that an important implement wag missing.: Where was' tlie Kaiser's knife and fork ? ' For, thoughthe Emperor can wield sceptre, sword, and pen, ;he cannot use an ordinary knife and fork. His left arm.' Is practically useless, and he employs an ingenious contrivance which combines both knife.' and fork, and does very well With it. . . This Imperial implement had .not been placed beside the Imperial plate, and'it could not bo found. Not ; even the Em peror's attendants know where' it was. A! picked crew"was sent ashore in haste, but, though; the Kaiser's quarters were searched, no knife and fork could be dis covered. ,. ... ■ ' All this1 time the elab...
Marriage by Registrars. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Marriage by Registrars. Something of a surpvise has been sprung on the public of New South Wales by a God fearing and moral judge in divorce, who drew attention to what is undoubtedly the state of the law as affecting marriage by a registrar. There can bo no question but that the law of New South Wales, which a good many people supposed only recognised mariinge as a civil contract, unquestionably rogards it in a different light, and only dispenses svith the religious ceremony as a matter of conscience in the case, of either, or both, of the parties enter ing upon the holy, or as the Divorce Court too often has shown, the unholy state of matrimony. While it isnbso lutely necessary that a clorgyman, licensed to perform the marriage cere mony, should recognise the civil side of the matter by forwarding particulars to the nearest registrar ; it seems to bo also a fact that the registrar, when asked to perform the legal marriage ceremony as binding without the element of religion, cnn on...
Piano v. Bike. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Piano v. Bike. . Cycling: among ladies has become so .fashionable in England tliat.—according to ani American trade journal—pianoforte: "makers are suffering in consequence. Either tlie ladies spend their money in purchasing safeties instead of cottages and grands, or, as the journal'in ques tion suggests, devote so much time to outdoor exercise that they have little /leisure to spare for music.; Inasmuch as a French savant gives it as :his opinion that the piano has been much overdone, , especially by young and 'nervous'"girls, •perhaps it::may not be: a loss if the young; women: of the coming generation do' give less time to it, and more to phy sical exercise in :the open ; though na turally instrument makers take a dif ferent view 'of the matter. There are IjCndon householders domiciled in dwell ings with- thin party walls who would be ready to subscribe to pi-ovldo some of , their over-musical neighbours with bicycles.
How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving ihe local paper your geheral printing; if you do not feelfableto run an advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, -dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper, man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free .no tices he gives yourand your town;; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, . nor brains in helping you to build up : your district. The time may come, when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from th'e subscriptions and advertisements, .but:, no ordinary newspaper in. any ordinary town- : can exist without auxiliary support\.derived from general printing. Therefore,if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town—give it all your printing.

Useless Hoarding. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Useless Hoarding. The temptation to hoard is not con fined to that class of beings picturesquely described as misers ; it assails women at every turn of their lives, and in cer tain/directions finds easy victims among men. Who does not know the emotion with; which during periods devoted to house-cleaning, when storerooms, attics, and top shelves render up their hidden treasures, we discover garments laid aside, 'old boxes, parcels carefully tied Iri-'a-,-.prehistoric era, bundles of paper and pamphlets yellowed and dust-grimed, betters written by people who have passed out of their lives, the flotsam and jetsam of years, which belong to the category of articles too good to bo destroyed, yet of no use to any one on earth ? ; The familiar and well-known :proverb,Keep a thing for seven years 'and you will', find a use for it," is re sponsible; for much of our stupid hoard ing; ; for the lumber and rubbish which cumber . our shelves afford admirable lurking places for gormsofl disease a...

CHAPTER XVI. THE PRODIGAL CHILD. Maurice could not have been '•quic'kQr, liartl he oven possessed wings/,-The-streets wore crowded, but Maurice ^Bnly remark ed the crowd as it retarded liis courso. It was said everywhere that the conven tion was sitting: tluit the majesty of the people was offfended through the repre sentatives, whom they prevented'from coming out; pud of this there seemed some probability, as the tinkling of the tocsin wa,s heard, and the thunder of the tannon sounding an alarm. But what, at this moment, to Maurice, mattered eit(!er tho tocsin or the ennnon? What cared ho whether tho deputies wore or were not able to come out, when the prohibi tion did not extend to him ? So lie quick ened liis pace—that was nil. While run ning, lie pictured to himself Genevipve waiting at the little window overlooking tho garden, in order to see liiin, and that who would perceive him far off; and then her smile, more than ever charm ing, would welcome him back again. Dix mer was a...

CHAPTER XVII. THE MINERS. At the moment tliey loft the table, Dix mer was told that his notary awaited him in liis study. He excused himself to Maurice, besides, he was accustomed to i leave him thus, ftnd proceeded to attend i hio man of business. Ho was negotiat ing for the purchase ot a house in tlio Hue de la Corderie, facing the garden of the temple. It was rather, as to the rest, a ruin than a house that Dixmer was purchasing, for the actual basemeuti was in a state of dilapidation, but it • was his intention to rebufild it. The bar gain had not been delayed with the pro prietor; that same morning the notary had seen him and agreed to pay nineteen thousand five hundred livres. He there fore brought the agreement l'or signature, and came to receive the requisite money for the purehn.se, n« the proprietor woulfi : that day clear out the building, that the workmen might commence operations on the morrow.
