Little Treasures. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894

Little Treasures. BD M. B. D. Labor-.aving mnohines are introduced into almost all households nowadays. Women welcome them with rapture, lind they can use th'm ",riht ofcwithoe/ut ein" tau,'ht," and in a few mouths decide that thoy are "little tormente," always out of order, and never doing their work well. Women who have such experience with domestic labor-saving machines resolve that the testimony in their favor was false, that they are "nothing but humbugs," and consign them, with a groan, to that infirm ary for disused articles which exists in every household, and which is largely inhabited by labor.saving machinery which has worn out the patience of the female part of the family. Women of ability, in other respects, are often without any mechanical genius what ever. They simply cannot " understand a machine," however simple it may be. Don't be offended, my dears. Listen to your sister idiot -the very worst of all, only she has bent her knee and humbly taken counsel of those who...

THE HOME. The Oilcloth. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894

THE HOME, The Oilcloth. A good serviceable oilcloth im the best kind of covering for the kitchben floor, and it can, with but little effort and strength, be kept in excellent condition, and it can also be na easily destroyed with improper Clre. A few bad washings will do more harm than can ever be remedied, therefore it is cs. pe.cially important that the oilcloth be weabhe pr opcrly. If you would have your oiloloth looking olepn and bright, never use a mop when we ing it, as this inssure to leave it grimy and streaky. Have a pail of clean, luke warm water or milk and water, and use two clean flannoc cloths, one for a wash cloth and one to wipo with. Go over the whole eurface of the oilcloth, washing a small span o at a time, and drying i, thoroughly. When dried well, warm some linseed oil and with a soft cloth rub it over the oil cloth, using a very little oil and rubbing it in well. This will improve the appearance of the carpet wonderfully. If linseed oil is not convenient, keros...

Reading Without Eyes. W. IT. Murray, a Colporteur of the Na. tional Bible society of Scotland, has devised a system of raised obaracters by which the blind are enabled to read. Says the lti?sion. ary .Yerald: We have recently received from Miss O. F. Gordon Cumming, the well-known traveller,an interesting account of this effort to reach a large and suffering class in China. Mniss Oumming reports that Mr. Murray be. gan life as a working sawmiller in the south: of Scotland; but, having by an accident lost one arm, he became a colporteur in Glasgow, and subsequently went to Pekin. His pity having been aroused by the innumerable blind whom he has met. everywhere, he has given every spare moment for eight years to the study of a system by which they might, be enabled to read. In place of the folur thousand characters in ordinary use among the Chinese, he uses embossed dots rc. representing some four hundred and twenty sounds; and his first experiment with ablind beggar from the streets,...

SHORT STORY. The Big New Zealand Bird. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894

SHORT STORY. The Big New Zealand Bird. •.---@ •• .t--- Some time ago, writing from New Zea. land, says a correspondent of the New York Titesr, I gave an account of some peculiarities in the animal life of Austral. asia, and alluded briefly to certain facts con erning tihe umoa, the extinct giant bird, or dinornie, of New Zealand. On looking over my note books of observations in the sonth seas I find some further items on the subject which may be of interest to Australia readers. I was oitting in my room at the hotel in Dunedin, just before leaving New Zealand, when the cards of two gentlemen were brought up, and were ,ptedily followed by the gentlemen themselves. Their ap pearance was not friendly. One of them carried in his hand a heavy club about three feet long, curiously and comfortably knotted at both oend, and the other had a bag, in which, as he shook it, was heard the rattling of stones that were evidently of considerable size. It soon appeared, however, that their intention...

If the insect clouegler its threads, its in a sign of fine, calm weather, the duration of which may be judged of by the length to which the threade are let out If the spider remains inactive, it is a sign of rain; but if, on the contrary, it keeps at work during a rain, the latter will not last long, and will be followed by fine weather.

Under the Chin. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894

Unleler the Chin. The Frenchman of the middle class, who is the most practical of mortals, and thrifty as well, Stuffs one corner of his napkin inside his shirt collar, and spreads it fully over the front of his person from the chin down to his knees. As by this method of procedure he keeps his clothing free from spot or stain, there is nothing ridiculous in the practice. There is reason, and an excellent reason, for so spreading the napkin, and if I were dining at home, or alone at a restaurant or club, and had on my spotless shirt and open waistcoat and claw-hammer coat, all ready to go to the opera, I should certainly spread my napkin over my manly and snowy bosom, just as the Frenchman does, and so I should dine at my ease, serenely and without ares, knowing that I had thus insured the immaoulateness of my linen. However, let it to remembered that company manners in all countries re quire you simply to spread your napkin loosely over your knees, and to eat slowly and carefully.<...

The solution of chloride of tin moost not contain too great an excues of acid,other. wise it will attack the iron itself.

The currens flowing out of a lamp is exactly she same in quantity as that going into it; the name is true of motors and of generators, chowing! that eleciricity of itself is neither consumed! while doing work nor is it gencrated.

She muses in mathetio pose, On pictures languid gazes, And paints the lily and the rosa On tambourines and vases. My Fancy's an athletic girl In flannel skirt and jacket, Who makes the white ball skin and whirl Before her tennis racket; She sits divinely on her cob, She dances in the german And in the surf; she's fit to bob About with any merman. Shall it be she who paints on tiles And ribbons the decanter, Or she who romps about and smiles Beneath a Tam O'Shanter? Or shall I woo the pensive maid Who's languid and siathetio, Or shall my heart and hands be laid Before the maid athletic. LrcER. My heart soon eeased to toss and whirl, For when the Summer tarried, The languid rethetlic girl, My Ideal, I married.
