SAVED FROM MISERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
SAVED FROM MISERY, Mrs Fanny Dent, wife of a gentleman employed in the Lambton colleries, kindly allows us to publish the following facts of her* interesting case and wonderful recovery, which we gather from her correspondence: and which we will be glad to allow anyone to peruse who wishes to do so. Mrs Dent has been in a state of extreme debility for twelve years, frequently quite unable to do any work, the lightest kind causing great fatigue, with, severe pains in the limbs, back, and left side. So severe was the pain that she would have o sit or lie down frequently. Walking exer cise was very trying and she could only walk very slowly. She had long seen Clements* Tonic advertised, but like many more people, her husband was prejudiced against " patent medicines," but (now we use her own words) I knew someone who had tried Clement's Tonic, and I decided to get a bottle on the quiet and say nothing about it if it did me no good. The effect I thought something wonder ful. I felt bett...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
TO THE EDITOR. SiK,-I wish to draw your attention to a stafcd of affairs which lias existed for some considerable time. Hardly an evening passes over but, what crowds of drunken, unruly blackfellows can be seen fighting and wrang ling in Marion and Miner streets. They are a eource of considerable annoyance to persons located there. They fight right in front of your door, and if ordered off will not go, but swear at you, and raise their "waddy" to you. It is only the other day that a woman was walking along the road when a drunken blaekfellow ran out, and was just in the act. of striking Iter, when a neighbor came to her assistance and drove him away. They prowl ^ibout the houses all night, and on several occasions have deliberately walked into pri vate houses and demanded all manner of things, frightening the wits out of the women. The blacks seem to have no diffi culty in obtaining drink, as they can be seen with billy cans of beer any day. This should not be allowed. It was custom...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
TO THE EDITOE. SlB,-Your issue of the 5th wst. contains the acceptanceof an imaginary challenge, pur porting to having b£enissued by me to Charles l^agleson, to fight me ten rounds for either £5 or £10, &c. Now, sir, after read ing the acceptance of this phantomised chal lenge^' I suddenly becaine (to use an Ameri cahism) utterly *' flabbergasted." as I never issdedsuchto any person. Speaking, subse quently, with Aagleson re the matter, he m6st emphatically denies either having him self, or authorised any peace-disturber to do soon his behalf. Consequently, ail I can say in leply is, that I exceedingly regret I cannot sufficiently punish the aggressor as my i6tfenti6n directs, for having the unparalleled impude&fce to associate niy name ? with a class of animalcwla many fathoms beneath my "dignity. The pugnacious whelp whodliiso is nothing less than a mean, cowardly, intermeddling skunk, who did not possess sufficient co urage and manhood to append hisownname to the ...

A NEW MILK TESTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
I A NEW MILK TESTER. I AT a meeting ofthe institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders in Scotland recently, MK John Iiaidlaw showed n centrifugal- machine applied to eeparatiiig liquids of different' (tensities.. The machine, he said, afforded an efficacious and prompt remedy in»testing the quality of mill:, and .was a. most efficient separator. That afternoon lie had sentout" to two neighboring dairies for samples of5 milk. In the course of a few minutes he was able to ascertain tha&one sample had onljr two per cent, of fatty matter, which clearly showed adulteration, and other two samples were not much more than half, and certainly not two-thirds, what goad milk ought to be. A humbeb of gentlemen met at Mr. Brooks' hotel, Queenton, on Monday after f0®®1 *»y« to Mr> Ciisaek, the jPO|H|W -IKa^ifp of whejhas beeh"a3miiu8tM*Ing thedutaes of Warden and P.St' hfere for tiie pad; _six'weeks.

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
I THE POULTRY YARD When it is desired to raise fancy fowls for breeding purposes, a good plan is for three or four farmers to combine, each, raising a different variety, and allowing one to make the sales and attend to the business of sel ling and shipping. Maize will not provide the liens with egg material. We are aware that many readers will smile when we tell them that maize should not be fed to hens in the summer; but facte are stubborn, for maize is mostly starch, and if the hen is to derive the materials from maize for the production of eggs she will have to eat a quantity so large as to tax her fullest capacity, the result being that she is soon over-fat, and will then not lay at all. Maize is excellent in winter, because it then keeps the hen warm, but during the summer season it is unnecessary. Do not waste your maize by feeding it now. Kerosene and lard are as essential in the poultry-house as soap and water in the nurseiy, and I would as soon think of going without the. l...
Dutch Courtship. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
Dutch Courtship. THACKERAY explained the prejudice of ladies against tobacco as being due to the superior claims of the latter oil the affections of young men. Yet the great novelist could not but have known that in many countries tobacco plays a very important part as a pre liminary to courtship and the closer union of the sexes. In certain parts of Holland when a young ma w thinks hie has found his affinity, it is cus tomary for Mm to ask for a match to light Ms cigar at the door of Ms loved one's house. This little subterfuge is intended to arouse ?the parents of the girl to the fact that some thing is. in the iwind. , JOE l& second call/with a similar object is made soonafter, nodoubtis leftof the young man's intentions, and the parents proceed to investigate the young man's character and antecedents, with a view of ascertaining his eligibility as a member of the family. Wbsai lie calls the thud time, always for a match to light his cigar, they awe prepared to give him a...

An American Schoolma'am. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 16 May 1891
Ait American Sell ooi ma'siiUL. I was driring along a biglnray in Woods County, O., with a man who was selling farming machines to fanners, and about two o'clock in the afternoon we came along to a district echoolhouse. The school-ma'am and about twenty scholars stood under an elm tree, about forty feet high, near the house, and in the topmost branches of the tree was a boy about fourteen years old. , Anything wrong here ?* asked my friend, as we halted before the door. * Budd Hawkins says he won't and the teacher 6ays he must!' called a little girl. The teacher herself then came forward. She was a plain looking girl of about twenty, .with a mouth showing great firmness, and. with some embarrassment she exclaimed: * Its the terror of the school. He refused to mind, and I started to whip him. He broke away and ran out and climbed the tree. I've been up about twenty feet, but had to give it up and come down. * Yer can't conquer me!' shouted the boy. * Budd, I order you to come down!' ...
