Home-made Soap. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Home-made Soap. A capital soap for house-cleaning and clothes-washing purposes is made in the fol towing way:-Procure a half-pound tin of 98 per cent caustic seda (which may be ob tained from *a wholesale manufacturing chemist), which will cost about 6d., and put it in a large basin or other earthenware vessel containing 1 quart of cold water. By stirring it will instantly get very hot. Let it stand till cool. This is called the "soda-lye." In a larger ear.henware vessel melt three pounds of any kind of fat (with out salt); and for this purpose I alway' save all refuse fat, or grease of any kind from the table, melted, and the pure fat strained off. Allow it to cool down until it just begins to set, and pour the soda-lye !-to it in a conttnuous stream, stirring : i it becomes like honey. Then pour the mixture into a wooden box. capable of hold ing 61b. of soa~p. The box shoutd pre viously be lined with a piece of damp calico. Well cover it up with a piece of old blanket, and let it ...
To Avert Ill-luck. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
To Avert ill-luck. A curious custom is said to exist in South= ern India smong some of the more primitlve non-Aryan tribes. This consists in' wedding a girl to a plant, a tree, an animal,' or even to an inanimate object;, the notion 'being that any ill-luck which may follow an iatual mnarriage will be averted by a union of this kind. The first`" husband" acts as a isdcpegoat for the second. The supersti tion which forbids the younger sisters to be married before the 'older ones is set aside by the eldest daughter 'marrying the branch of a tree, after which sister number two may safely enter into the bonds of natrimony.
Life of a Siberlan Exile. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Life of a Siberian Exile. The Siberian exile, when conveyed to the place in which-he is ordered to live, is for bidden to keep a shop of any kind, or to be come a. printer;, a pliotographer, or a school master. He' is, however (writes a traveller); allowed by Government 12s. per month, and 6s. each. for his wife and children ; though whether he gets this money or not is: an entirely different matter. One Russian gentleman whom I knew was living in a wretched hut of loose boards (nails. cost five kopecks each) in the dreary. province of Kirensk. Every month a police man would come to the river bank on the other side, and bawl out that it was pay day. If the exile could get across, well and good; but it frequently happened that the ferry boat had been taken down the stream for miles by some tramp. In that case the poor fellow` had to wait until the next month' for his wretched' pittance. The post probably comes three times' a year, and, as the postman carries his sup plies of wet fish...
His Chances Good. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
His Chances Good. I was sitting one day a few years ago in fronit of the hotel' in a little town in Southern California, when news came that the overland train from the East had met with an accident near the out skirts of the village, 'resulting m the thorough shaking-up of the passengers, the killing of a tramp who was stealing a ride, and fatal injury-to the young firemin of fhe'locomotive, who, standing at his post;- had saved the trai from utter wreck. Almost simultaneously with the news came the sight of a small procession of trainmen, carrying upon an improvised litter their injured comrade. They brought him at once to the little tavern, where a room was quickly made ready, and a physician and two sisters of charity, who were almost instantly upon the spot, did everything in their power to relieve his awful sufferings. To their question as to whether they should send for a priest, the poor fellow gasped out that his mother was an Episcopalian, and he knew she'd want him to see...
No Perfect Watch Made. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
No Perfect Watch Made. Although no watch has ever received at Kew the 100 marks that signify perfec tion, the test it must pass is no mean one, and the passing argues at least some ability on 'the part of the watch'to keep time. At Kew a watch .is tested in every position, and its rate measured and recorded by the hour. It is hung-by its liendant, hung up side down, hung from each side, placed dial "down and `back down, and at' any number of _angles, and to finish is baked in an oven, and frozen `in a pail of ice. ' When it is considered that 18,000 vibrations an 'hour occur in a watch, and it must not' vary a second a week, while a quarter-turn of its two tine screws, meaning the millionth of an inch, will make a difference' of twenty seconds a'day, it is' easy .to see why no watch' bha ever 'been potft.
Short Story. The Woman Between Them. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Short Story. The Woman Between Them. Jess!e Fair swished through the luxuriant grass that fringed the per manent way of the East Anglian main line to the north. She carried her pink .sun-bonnet by the strings, making vici ous dashes at the fair white marguerites that rose from the grassy tangle. A young fellow walked moodily be hind her. " Will you listen 'to me, Jessie ?" he began. "Listen! If you talked from now till next year I would not believe you. Don't I keep on telling you that I saw you walking to the sign-al-box alongside Lena Morris. You can't explain that away, Jack Armns-trong.". " We were talking about her brother in London, I tell you.". " Brother, indeed ! Perhaps it was her brother that squeezed her hand in the lancers at our, club dance ? Oh, I saw you! Brother! What a fool you must think me !" ",What I do think is that we had better break it all off, 'Jessie. I love every square inch of. you, but I'd be doing wrong both to you and to myself if I kept on courting y...
GENERAL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
CENERAL INFORMIATION. There is a man in Berlin who earii i:: liv,'lihood by breeding rats for vivisec purp-es. . It a well could be dug to a depth 6bi. forty niles, the air at the bottom would be as dense as quicksilver. -It is expectced that in a short time a machl tno will be placed before scientists by which air can be photographed. If we moved our.legs proportionately as fast as an ant. it is calculated we could travel nearly 800 miles an hour. The offensive weapon of the ostrich is his leg. He can kick as hard as a mule, and it is a remarkable feect that that his kick is forward, never backward. It is said that flies confined in a glass case with cigarettes will die in less than five minutes, so deadly is the atmosphere in the case. The summer coat of the polar fx is dark, almost black. In winter it is so white that the animal can hardly be seen as it runs over the snow. On every shilling turned out the British Mint makes a profit of nearly threepence. On every ton of penny pie...
Lost and Won. CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Lot and Won. CHAPTER XV. It was a bright October afternoon. The light of the day was dying, and the soft grey shades of night were slowly creeping on. It was a custom with all of us to spend some time in the conservatory before the dressing bell rang. Some of the ladies liked to choose their own flowers, and it was a rendezvous for conversation and flirtation. At the end of the conserva tory rose a great dome of stained glass, I beneath which one could sit and enjoy the sweet odour of the flowers. - Easy- I chairs, couches, tables, and books had t been placed there, and it was one of the most attractive nooks at Sutton. f On this day, when it seemed to me that my despair reached its height, I stood alone in this pleasant place. I had been reading the story of a girl I and her false-hearted lover, and, as Ir dwelt on it, all the sweetness and sad ness of the love-story present with me, I raised my"eyes. Quite at the other I end, where luxuriant ivy and cree'ersI almost hid them from ...

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
CYCLING NOTES. -o - J. Chamberlain, and English racing cyclist with a fair amateur record, has arrived in Melbourne. Although Chamberlain has entered for the Austral Wheel Race, he is an un likely starter, as he has no time to get into form In answer to numerous inquiries the Dunlop Tyre Co. state that their artis tic Austral souvenior, which will be obtainable gratis from any of the Company's depots, will this year con tain photos of R. Walne (Q.), J. Green (Eng.), '. Beauchamp (Tas.), S. Gor don (Vic.), and J. Lawson (America). Copies will be obtainable early in Decem her.

CORRESP4ONDENCE. (WIe do not necessuril!t endorse, nor hold ourselves responsible for, the ojpiions of our correspondents. ) THE SHIRE COUNCIL & THE DUTIES OF ITS MEMBERS. TO TIlE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. SIR,-When I addressed you on the above subject, I had not the slightest intention of conveying any impression that I was referring to the proceedings of the council at its October meeting, i.e., when Cr. Sloss was chairman. I did not think it worth while to refer to him, seeing he was only in the chair for the day, probably. What I was anxious about was that the public should understand the gross misuse of power the late president had been guilty of, in the hope that new aspirants for the position would try and qualify themselves by studying the provisions of the Local Govern ment Act, and so avoid making an ex hibition of their ignorance. Or. Sloss, in a very chivalrous manner, " has drawn a red herring across the track " in the interests of the late president, and seeing t...
A Real Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
A ?eal Iarriaate. Marriage is the most important contract that human beings can make, says a writer who had been asked to define marriage. No matter whether it is called a contract or a saerament, it remains the same. A true marriage is a natural concord of agreement of souls-a harmony in which discord is not even imagined. It is a mingling so perfect that only one seems to oexit. All other considerations are lost. The present seems eternal. In this su preme moment there is no shadow, or the shadow is as luminous as light. When two beingsthus love, thus uptto this is the true marriage of soul and soul. The Idea of contract is lost. Duty and obligation are instantly changed into desire, aend joy, and two lives, like uniting streams, ;flow on as one. This is real marriage. At the annual exhibition of the Aus tralasian Axemren's Association, which was colmmenced at Ulverston,, Tas mania, on Wednesday, the champion ship was won by Thomas Pettit, being closely pushed by A. Bryan, of Il;,...

The Sketcher. The Great Cow Question. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
The Sketeher. The Great Cow Question. --0- There would be no apter quotation wherewith to begin the story than " What great events from little causes spring," if it were not impossible to the narrowest mind, to the most contracted imagination, to think of her-I allude to ithe lady, not to 'the cow-as little. For one of 'them was clearly the fons et origo mali, and I am convinced that it was 1 she-I again refer not to the cow, but to the lady. It is true that Jobson him self alleges that it was the cow, but it is a matter of notoriety that she-the lamentable deficiency of pronouns in our language compels once more the "explanation that I allude to the lady, 'not to the cow-was wooed by Jobson and Bloxam alike. For a long time it was uncertain which of the two suitors 'the lady would favour, and the 'subject caused the liveliest` speculation in the parish, the local bookmanker offer ing Odts on Jobson; While the rector's wife, who .deals with -him, on credit, openly expressed her.pref...

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Honisehold Hints. Salt .rubbed on the hands when wet will quickly iremove the estains ?? f potatoes or fruit. Bleaskes and furs :sprinkled with borax and put :up airtight will keep free from mnots. Brass kettles, &c., may be cleaned quickly with a cut lemsnn, polishing after with a soft cloth. Buttons should be firmily sewed on new gloves before wearing, and .if the hand is plump it is well 'to clip small pieces of kid from old gloves and sew them under the buttons of the new pair. This holds the buttons fast, and prevents the kid from tearing. When bedclothing is not sufficiently warm two or three newspapers spread between the ' blankets will secure "a 'comfortable night. This is a hint worth remembering by those who travel much, and who do not carry about a supply of rugs. A dusty-looking carpet may be made quite presentable if, after sweeping, a cloth Is wrung out of hot water with a little am monia in it ; the carpet should be briskly rubbed, and the colours will return ...
