THE WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

THE WORK TABLE. Netted Curtains.-These are gener- ally preferred when made of square nett- ing. To begin you most work as for a square and oblong netting which, it is presumed, you already know. The size of cotton will, of course, rule the size of the mesh and the quantity of cotton re- quired. Evans's Boar's Head cotton about O000 will make a nice curtain. Work quite plainly and edge with a fancy border in netting or a row of full fringe. For a coarser curtain use Smith's Knitting Cotton Ko. IO mesh, knitting pin No 10 (Walker's belt guage.) A curtain about three yards and a lialf long would require 350 stitches. This can be worked with rows of plain netting and fancy strips Venetian r'oiNX Lace.-The tracing is eaßüy done upon linen by the use of copying-paper, which can be got from any stationer. Place the paper upon the linen and the design over it and mark over every part of the design with a stiletto or some other rather »lust point, the tracing will remain upon the linen when ...

The Drinks of our Forefathers. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

The Drinks of our Forefathers. The beverages most prized by our stal- wart forefathers were ale and mead. Of the ale with which they were acquainted we have records of three kinds-clear ale, Welsh ale, and lithes of mild ale. Doubtless this ale was potent stuff, though the SaxonB drank no stinted draughts, any more than their Scan- dinavian forefathers had done from time immemorial, and died in the faith that they should still do bo in an eternity of bliss in Valhalla. To our debased senses, though we hive lost the keen relish for such joys as beer and stewed pork, world without end, the distinction between the three kinds of beer is not difficult to comprehend notwithstanding. Perhaps we may have improved on the wisdom of our forefathers, and increased the number of the varieties of malt beverage to somewhat more than the mystic three. If this be bo, it íb a Bad reflection upon us who are so ready to cry out upon the Bins of our fathers. Let ub claim to ' be Romans, who never becam...

BRIDGETOWN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

BRIDGETOWN NOTES. -«. Our annual races came off last Thura day. The weather was highly favourable» neither too warm nor too cold and the evening was beautifully cool for dancing. The meeting on the whole was a success although neither the races nor the atten- dance wes anything like former years. Indeed, I rather fear that a mistake was made in not having the Kaces at the time of the Show, when the one wonld have helped the other. This I hope to see done next year. Arnon« the visitors present were Mr. and Mrs Venn, Messrs. Walters and D. B.Ord and Dr.O'Meelian.Therac inn was was not at all lirst class, and the much talked of horse "Sir Victor "proved \ a duffer. He was recently brought from York by young Mr. Blechynden and is, I believe, by "Tarragon.*' He does not. look much and is not a horse to improve the breed hi this district. Mr. C. F. Robert's horse "First King" carried off. the big event and as Mr. Roberts has vanquished all the south, it is his inten- tion to give his hors...

OUR BUNBURY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

OUR BUNBURY LETTER. The annual meeting of The Wellington Turf Club was held on Wednesday, 3rd ; March. The attendance of visitors was very sparse, and little interest had been manifested by the public in the meeting prior to the day on which it was held. The horses competing for the various events were, with one or two exceptions, anything but what might be termed " Race horses', and not a single animal appeared in the contests that could be construed by the most imaginative as a horse that would tend to improve the breed of the general run of hoise stock in this district. On account of the. limited number of horses that were in training the entries for the three principal races were, after they closed, fouud to be not sufficient to make up a race, with two exceptions, viz., for the Ladies Purse and the Wellington Cup (the Queen's Plate of the South.) The stewards allowed further time for entries for these races, with the result that the Cup was made up, and the Ladies Purse thrown ...

Odds and Ends. Her Grammar. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

QMsli «?i^iilp^ Her Grammar. It is a pathetic eight to watch the meanderiugs of the childish mind through the intricacies of English grammar. Little Jane had repeatedly been reproved for doing violence to the moods and tenses of the verb " to be." She would Bay " I be," instead of " I am," and for a time it seemed as if no one conld prevent it. Finally Aunt Kate made a rule not to answer an incorrect question, bat to wait until it was corrected. One day the two bat together, Aunt Kate busy with embroidery, and little Jane over her dolls. Presently doll society became tedious, and the child's attention was directed to the embroidery frame. " Aunt Kate," said she, " please tell me what this is going to be ?" But Aunt Kate was couuting and did not answer. Fatal word-be. It was her old enemy, and to it alone could the child ascribe the silence that followed. " Aunt Kate,'' she persisted with au honest attempt to correct her mistake, " please tell me what that is going to am P" ¿till aun...

The Milk Thistle. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

The Milk Thistle. The Milk Thistle must have been a fav- orite flower with some one who introduced it into Australia, and it has beena favorite both in cid England and in America. Even in Australia, where Acts of Parliament have been fulminated against its existence, where District C »uncils, Corporations, and other public bodies have persecuted, prosecuted, and otherwise annoyed owners of property upon which the banned and accursed "Scotch Thistle" existed, there have been found numerous champions who stood up and proclaimed its virtues and its economic value. Notwithstanding all efforts the _ thistle held its own, and more than once or twice it has proved a valuable help to squat- ters upon the Murray, the Darlikg, and the Murrumbidgee, when the heavens have " been as molten brass " and the earth has been bare ol sustenance for the famished sheep, except where the Holy Thistle had found a corner in which it might grow un- molested. This thistle, however, is not the . Scotch thistl...

How the Prize Silage was Made. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

How the Prize Silage was Made. At the show of silage held in London last December the sample that obtained the prize in competition with 200 other samples was from grass, not made in a pit, but in a small stack. Such result oreated much astonish- ment, and it is likely to stimulate the making of silage in that manner and in the field. The winner of this prize, we learn from the Farmer, commenced to cut his crop on the 7th of September, and sixteen loads went into the stack within three days. Whilst building the stack the grass was well shaken and spread by three men, who trod it down evenly, the weather at the time being damp. The winner, who came up to the Smithfield Show, said the laugh wasloud from his neigh- bours and others who were making hay, at this experiment, and the 15 to 20 tons of grass was, by popular verdict, soon to take fire. However, the trial proceeded, and to give the stack a ship-shape appearance the sides were trimmed round with a hay-knife on the 11th Septembe...

DANGER OF COSMETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

I DANGER OF COSMETICS. A celebrated Parisian belle, who had acquired the habit of whitewashing her- self, so to speak, from the soles of her feet to the roots of lier hair, with chemi- cally prepared cosmetics, one day under- took a medicated batli ; and on emerging from, it she was horrified to find herself as black as an Ethiopian. The transforma- tion was complete ; not a vestige of the " supreme Caucasian race" was left. Her physician was sont for in alarm and liaste. On his arrival he laughed immoderately, and said-"Madame you are net ill; you are a chemical product. You are no lon- ger a woman, but a sulphide. It is not a question of medical treatment, but of simple chemical reaction. I shall subject you to a bath of sulphuric acid diluted with water. The acid will have the hon- our of combining with you ; it will take np the sclphur, the metal will produce a sulphate.and we shall have as a precipitate a very pretty woman." The good-natured physician went through his reaction,...

Farm and Station. Hints on Dairying. [Contributed to the Border Watch by Horace Walpole, Mount Gambier.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

temjM_®|^^| Hints on Dairying. [Contributed to the Border Watch by Horace Walpole, Mount Gambier.] , If the importance oí cheese and milk as the most simple and wholesome food had not been lost sight of, there can be no doubt that the milk industry would to-day rank at the head ©1 all other industries in aU those parts of the world which are covered with industrious husbandmen. Moreover, if people were edu- cated to milk and cheese as their principal articles of food, nobody can deny that the demoralizing plague of alcoholic drinking would Boon be driven into narrower bounds, ïhose who take the present low condition of the greater part of the "¡plebeity" to heart ought, therefore, to do all that is in their power to give the widest possible development to the milk industry in every part of the civilized world. At the same time those en- gaged in the milk industry ought to negleot nothing in order to produce the best possible articles of daily consumption. When Julius XJosar, in his ...
