THE FEDERAL PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
THE FEDERAL PARTY. THE Daily Telegraph and its allies are doing their utmost to split the Federal party by frightening Freetraders into the belief that that party is allied with the Protectionists in a discreditable conspiracy to alter the fiscal policy of New South Wales hy a side wind. They want to confuse the Federal issue with the fiscal issue, in order that many of the enemies of Federation, who hold seats in the expiring Parliament by virtue of their opinions on the now forgotten question of the provincial tariff, may climb back by the same ladder and continue to thwart the will of the people as to Federation, on the ground that their "mandate" is not Federal, but fiscal and provincial. In this attempt they practically accuse Mr. Barton and his party of using Federatiou as a stalking-horse . for provincial Protection. This accusation is completely answered by the emphatio pledges of Mr. Barton that he sinks the fiscal issue absolutely and will not be a party to attempt ab alte...
NOVEL. A Question of Courage CHAPTER I.—(CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
NOVEL. A Question of Courage By FRANCIS LYNDE. CHAPTER I.-(CONTHTOBD.) 'Tom,' said Mrs Ludlow, impressively. 4 please put that paper down and tell me all about it. . 1 want to know whom he is going to Bee.' Ludlow dropped tho newspaper and looked up in ludicrous alarm : * Whom who's going to see ?-what did I say just now P* She repeated his answer word for word. * Oh, .Lord 1 I have let the cat out of the bag, after all, and I promised him I wouldn't !' he exclaimed. ' But then I told him you would get it out of me. Full up your chair, and I will tell you all I know. I might as well do it firet as last.' Mrs Ludlow listened eagerly while her husband recounted the meagre facts of Ring brand's sudden infatuation, the color doming and going in her cheeks and her eyes spark- ling with the keenest appreciation. When he had finished, tshe olasped her hands over his knee and looked up at him in rapt ecstasy : * Oh, Tom ! isn't that perfeotly splendid ? Juett to think of it !-and after X ha...
MR. REID'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
MR. REID'S SPEECH. MR. Reid's speech on Monday night last was just what might have been expected from " the same old George Houston Reid,"-a sorry exhibition of personal abuse and political emptiness. If Mr. Reid has no better case to make out for himself than the one he presented the country with on that occasion, there ought not to be much doubt as to the country's verdict on him and all his works. What the people of this country want from Mr. Reid is not a vulgar . and abusive tirade against the men who are doing their best to consummate the union of these colonies, but some evidence that he is sincere in his own Federal professions. That evidence he has never given yet, and if his past performances go for anything, it is not very likely to be forthcoming. There is, we are forced to admit, one great advantage in being on the side of Mr. Reid. It is that if one stays there long enough, he is sure to get what he wants, whatever his Federal creed may be. If he wants equal representa...

TRAVELLER. NO SUCH LUCK YET. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
«AVIUIB. NO SUCH IiUOK YET. Here ia a little story from Klondike that has the merit of being absolutely true. The native Indians in that part of the country have an intense partiality for the . fire water* of the pale faces, and all sorts of strict regulations are in foroe to prevent those on the Government reservations being supplied with it. At one place lives an old settler whose wife is a native Indian woman, and his farm being on the bauk of the river, two young fellows from an English establishment over there are in the habit of staying with the old man now and agaán, in order to have a few days' shooting and fishing. In return for such accommodation, they now and again make their host a present, whioh usually takes the form of grog or tobacco. One day when they waited upon him with two bottles of choice whisky, they found that ho was out. They could not leave the whisky with his wife, beoause they knew very well that she would consume the whole of it directly the door was shu...

ALL WOOL FLANNELS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
ALL WOOL FLANNELS. An authority says, ' Uee lukewarm water.' "Why not hot water; whioh ia BO oleanBlng F Olothea that can neither be boiled nor scalded need everything else that oan possibly sweeten them. What causes shrinkage P Simply tho multitud o of tiny fibers that when wet become interlaced ; and if dried in this condition, the garaient grows smaller, as a I matter ol course. Stretching, pulling and shaking to separate these fibers is one of thc essentials ; a garment may be washed with the utmost care, bat without this, the worh will be a total failure. Let me tell you my method, a plain sen- sible every day method. Use water as hot as you can bear your hands in comfortably. (Hotter would be apt to sot the sweat stains.) j&ake a strong suds of good soap, and allow tho garments to soak for 10 or 15 minutes. If the weather is very cold and the water should cool off, add enough hot water to make the suds of the original temperature, then rub out the garments as quiokly a...

PUSSY'S PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
PUSSY'S PALA.OB. A New York lady and her daughter re- cently opened u hotel for oats, and it seems to have turned out a paying oouoern, for they receive a largo number of both winter and summer boarders. The oats' hotel is situated close to tho river Hudson and re- joices in the name of 37auraah.ua Farm. For twelve shillings a oat is boarded for a mouth, and there are no extras.
PAPER BOTTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
PAPER BOTTLES. Ä German paper- maker has recently ob táined letters patent on bottles made of 'paper, for use on board of ships particalarly. In bad weather much damage has been done by the breaking of bottles of wine and other liquors in the storeroom* of vessels, in ppite ot every precaution. The new bottles are vinade of a composition whioh, with tho solution in which they are made water-tight, ila still the inventor's secret. After being impregnated with this fluid the paper bottles are slowly dried in gas stoves, this prooo-s of drying being watched carefully, otherwiee the bottles would remain porous and allow the fluid contents to leak out. These bottles can be handled very roughly without the least apprehension of damage or destruction.
MADE OF WOOD PULP. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
MADE OF WOOD PULP. Ordinary floors »re condemned by eoientiflo men because they contain dust, in which -dangerous germs are fostered. Cement floors .are safer but much less agreeable to the feet. A well- known hygienist recommends wood* pulp floors, which have no cracks, are soft to the feet and are bad condnctors of boat and sound, while their cost is considerably lees than that of ordiuary flooring. It is believed that Buch floors will prove very durable. The dried pulp, mixed with a little cement to add resistance to the floor, is transported ia powder, and after being made into a fchitinous mass is passed between rollers, he floors are painted to imitate oak or ?other woods.

, ITBMÖ. ; Tho beat way to koop insects from your bird'« cage ia to haag a bag of, sulphur in- side. It has the additional merit of being beneficial to the bird's health. In a domestio state squirrels are fed with hazel nute or, indeed, any kind of nuts, with an occasional feast of bread and milk, j Monkeys in confinement should be fed j upon bread and fruit, with oooasionally a j bone to pick. Meat is bad for them. The greatest gold-fish fanciers in the I world, the Chinese, say that small balls of paste form tho beat food for these delicate creatures. Fresh river water should, when possible, be given in preference to any other. Oats should never bo overfed ; they should also be fed regularly. A little brimstone in their milk occasionally is a good preventative of the various ailments to which they aro aubjeot. Parrots thrive beat when fed upon soaked bread and biscuit, mashed potatoes, nuts and rape seed, or packets of parrot heeds ready prepared by some good seedsman. Give your p...
HEDGEHOG HUNTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
HEDGEHOG- HUNTERS. In the first few weeks of October, as soon as the leaves begin to fall, a sprinkling of poverty stricken townspeople begin to strike better times. They derive quite a com- fortable sum per week from the innooent hedgehog. A townsman who knows his business will tramp about twenty miles oat of town with a terrier and a sack, to spend a couple of days in routing out hedgehogs. He searches the coppines and meadows by day, his terrier working in the thiokets, and he seldom fails to find at least a dozen before dusk sets in. As soon as the sun sinks, however, he takes up a position near the corner of a thick hftdge, and lies down to watch. He has but a little time to wait before the spiny little beast crawls cut to hunt for worms. He sends his terrier forward, and the hedgehog rolls up comfortably at sight of the dog, and allows itself to be carried away. The hunter proceeds a little farther and repeats the dodge. With a saokful of hedgehops he returns to town, and eith...
SOMETHING ABOUT HAM. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
SOMETHING ABOUT HAM. The fresh ham of a small pig, weighing not more than s«ven or eight pounds, with its bone removed and the place thereof pressed full of highly seasoned breadcrumbs, should have its rind scraped and cross-gashed to make small checks, and then rubbed all over with salt, pepper, and mixed herbs, dredged with flour, and baked upon a raok sot in a pan in a well heated oven, a full half hour being allowed for eaoh pound of meat, and eaten sparingly hot. When cold, this ham provides a luxury whioh haB few rivals, whether eaten with lettuce or with some other plainly dressed salad, and this meat is fully equal to capon for a mayonnaise salad. If there are pre- judices against it, the hostess need not disclose its origin to the guests. Thinly slioed and trimmed tiaoon is best cooked orisp by being-dropped into a very hot boiling fat until browu (say about two minutes), just as if it were a croquette or a smelt, then dried upon brown paper.

A HANDSOME DINNER GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898
A HANDSOME DINNER GOWN. Picture to yourself a reception or home dinner gown of pale grey voile, with bodice of grey aoaoroion ohiffon. Toile, £ may mention en paseant, is a charmingly light and graceful material, something between a light canvas and grenadine.

A short grey velvet zouave, embroidered with turquoise and silver sequins, and edged with bands of tuiquoise velvet, is one of the most fascina ting features of this gown.
A DORMANT PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 9 July 1898

It weighed about seven atone when the aooident happened, and had waited to about thirty pounds.
