Three Cornish Stories. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
Three Cornish Stories. X. ' There edn' no Blob, thing as ghost«,' said Mrs. Tonkin ; ' but we do be'old the sperrita ol the dead just when the breath do leave the body, before they are gone total and complete, bat when they do be gone they don't never come baok; they can't, or else they don't want to.' 4 Sperrita of the living/ added Mrs Tro wltoheti, 4 is different. Sf you see the sperrlt of a live man wen the days do lengthen, the man will live long ; bat el you seen ot whoa tho days do shorten, he will die soon. 'Twas August month when Vaylor Dick saw his wifo's «perrit, and she died on Michaelmas day. Diok oome into our house ono night to toiioh a pipe with the maister. Et was a bad night, with wind and flaw. The lamp was lit, but the blind WM'up, and Dick was setting by tho window.

The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 9, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 9, 1898. MR. Barton in all his addresses during the Referendum campaign assured his hearers that although the Convention considered it politic to leave the question of the site of the Federal Capital to the Federal Parliament for selection, he had no doubt whatever that the leading public men in the other colonies were pretty well unanimous that some portion of New South Wales would be proclaimed Federal territory. Mr. Carruthers endorsed Mr. Barton's declaration. The only point the delegates insisted upon was that the capital should not be in Sydney. Many votes were cast against the Bill through fear of some site in Victoria being selected. It was impossible for Mr. Barton and other cham- pions of the Bill to destroy these fears. Mr. Barton intends, therefore, if entrusted by the electors at the general elections, to secure the consent of a conference of represent- ative public men from the various colonies to a proposition that the ...

LADIES' COLUMN. WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
WORKERS. According to reoent statistical retaras, the total number of women over the ago of 18 employed in faotorios and workshops in the British Islands ie a little over 1,000,000, of which about 11 per cent belong to trades nnions. Most of these have a membership in common with the men, but there are some separate women's unions, organized, officered and conducted exclusively by female mem- bers. Among theBe are the Felt Hat Trimmers' and Wool Formers' Association, with 2486 members ; the Female Cigar makers' Protective Union, with a member- ship of over 1000, and a few other associa- tions with a still smaller list of members. The great bulk of the women workera are ' included in the mixed unions, showing a disposition to work out her industries, like her other problems, in company with the men, rather than separate from them-a token that the working British female is endowed with sound und discriminating judgment and knows perfectly well on whioh side her bread is buttered.
THE SAFEST PART OF A TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
THE SAPEST PART OP A TRAIN. Whioh Ia the safest and most comfortable position in the train ? In an express, to- wards the rear ; for we are more likely to run into something- than that a goods or slow should overtake no, and in the case of the former ovont happening, tho for*) part of the train would oome to the most grief. Then, as to position in tho compartment. With your back to the engine the draught is reduced to a minimum ; and further, ia case there should be a sudden stop, there is no danger of being thrown to the opposite side of the carriage. Again, tho heavy lug- gage on the rack abovo is not so likely to fall from the side. The corner seat nearest tho platform is the safest, for tho reason, that should we pass another train whioh hau got out of gear or brckon down, and is in any way like to col« lide with our own, we shall be farthest from it, if sitting at tho neal side.
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
; POULTRY NOTES. / Do not try io raise chickens and lice at the same time, it has not yet proved a success.,; If hens fed on fish and onions will taint the flavor of the eggs what oan we expect from hens kept on manure piles. ' Uso every possible means to rid the premises ol rats before the early ohioks and ducklings hatch. The poultry keeper has no worse enemy. A good mating is four duoks to one drake, and about twenty in a pen. About the lase of May one drake can be removed from each pen. A lot of neglected, crowded fowls will never return the food they oouBume. Bo cause your twenty hens last year brought you a profit of £10 you cannot put one hundred in the Bama enclosure and reap a not gain of £50. M. Zola spares no pains to study realism at first hand.

WHAT BECOMES OF A SHIP WHEN SUNK? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
WHAT BECOMES OF~A SHIP WHEN SUNK P What beoomes of the ship that sinks in mid-ocean P If it is of wood, it takes, in the first place, oonaiderable time for it to roach. the" bottom. In one hundred or moró fathoms of water a quarter of an hoar will elapse before tho ship reaohes bottom.1 It sink* slowly« and when the bottom isreaohed it falls gently into the soft, oozy bed, with no orash or breaking. Of oourse, if it is laden with pig-iron or corresponding substance, or if it is an iron ship, it sinks rapidly, and sometimes strikes the ' bottom with such force as to smash itt pieoes. Onoo sunken, a - ship beoomes the prey of the oouufclesa inhabitants of the ocean. They swann over and throu¡rh the great bout, and muhe it their home. Besides th's, they cover every inch of the boat with a thiok layer of limo.

SOFT HANDS AND HOUSEWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
SOFT HANDS AND HOUSEWORK. Housewives who value the dainty appear- ance of their hands should keep in the kitohen, always ready for use, one of the liquids which counteract the action of the alkalis of strong Boda on sensitive skin. Perhaps the best preparation of this kind consists of equal parts of citric aoid and glycerine. When the duties of the dish pan have been accomplished, wash the hands carefully in a little clear warm water, dry them, then rub them oarefully with a little of the oitrio aoid and glycerine, and wipe dry with a soft towel. The most sensitive hands may be kept white and soft by this means.

Probably moro than half an hour had passed, during which no man moved, the sergeant and his three remaining soldiers ?seemed afraid to breathe, then we heard the step of the general himself on the Btoir. I feared that this would give the needed impetus to the sand in the glass, but when Trelawny entered the stains quo remained. The general stood looking at the suspended «and, without speaking.

COMPLIMENTARY SOCIAL AND PRESENTATION TO MR. J. P. WALKER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
COMPLIMENTARY SOCIAL AND PRESENTATION TO MR. J. P. WALKER. I SINCE the death of the late lamented minis- ter of the local Presbyterian Church, the Rev. D. W. Macfie, Mr. J. P. Walker (Sydney) has ministered to the spiritual wants of the congregation and although only a few weeks have elasped he has during that time, gby his kindly demeanour and truly Christian character endeared himself to all with whom his ministrations have brought him in contact, so much so that they 'unanimously decided to fittingly mark their appreciation of his services, their desire being promptly carried into effect by a strong com- mittee (with Messrs Lavender and Shaw as secretaries), on Wednesday evening last, when he was tendered a complimentary social, at which he was presented with a beautiful silver tea and coffee service, suitably in- scribed, in the presence of a large and repre- sentative gathering of the Presbyterian body. Mr. J. Rowe presided, and, after referring to Mr. Walker's sterling worth a...

ENGLISH NURSES IN BOMBAY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
ENGLISH NURSES IN BOMBAY. To-day, for the first time in his memory, the Englishman in Bombay, in taking his morning ride, meets English ladies on their way home from a night's nursing duty, ' under tho escort of an armed guard. We are sure that we shall have many with us when we say that on the day on whioh an Englishwoman who has come out to nurse the poor of Bombay has to pass through the streets behind a loaded rifle her mission should be brought to an abrupt end. Now that the violence of the people w.hom they have come to tend and to oare for has ooma in as a supplement to the risks of pestilence, and the strain of labor and night watching, it seems to us that the time has come to tell the poor of Bombay that Eatrlish nurses will no longer thrust themselves upon their indulgence.
