DUKE OF KENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

DUKE OF KENT. Your interesting note6 about the ir regular or morganatic alliances of PrinceB of the Blood in recent times remind me (writes Modern S ,-ciety) of a curiouB and little-known chapter in the history of the King's grandfather, the Duke of Kent, on which an interesting light has been thrown by a recent discovery in Canada. It re lates to an amiable and accomplished lady known as Madame de St. Laurent, Baroness de Fortisson, who presided aver tho Duke's household, for more than, a quarter of a century, accompanied him to Canada from Malta in 1791, and only left him to retire into a convent when . State reasons— viz., the fear of the failure of the English Brjyal line — practically compelled him t) marry the mother of the future Queen Victoria. A little piece of evidence haB come to light, in the shape of a baptismal entry in a church near Quebec, which g~ea far to dem nstrate that Madame de St. Laurent was without dmbt the Duke's wedded wife, although uiiuer Lue jsoyai ju.t...

Naturalist. A LION HUNTER'S TALE. | &JJIJ5RTHUB SAENCER, tho famous fofjM animal trainer, who for many years was connected with Carl Hagenbeck, the noted showman, has had some thrilling experiences, but none more exciting than one down in South Africa while on a lion hunting trip.

He writes as follows : ' Early one spring our stock of lions having become exhausted by reason of an unusually large demand fcr them the preceding winter, we decided to at once set out upon a lion hunt. One afternoon, about 6 o'clock, we left the stockade with the intention ef proceeding to the nearest Kaffir village, some fifteen miles away, there to engage guides and beaters and to leave the village early on the following morning for the jungle.

Traveller. CHURCH HEWN IN ROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

Traveller. CHURCH HEWN IN ROCK. | ^J5jV)F many curious old buildings in Q%m Cappadocia one is a church, re markable for the reason that it is formed out of a rock. Still, it is by no means a crude edifice, Bince it possesses many characteristics of the Byzantine style of architecture, and is in thp interior with numerous frescos, now more or less faded. That it waB built during the early Christian era is evideDt, bnt the exact time of its construction is not known. The only notable testimony as to its age is the fact that on its walls are pictures of several Greek saints. In old days many caverns were trans formed into edifices iu Cappadocia, and it has been estimated that a single workman could construct a very comfortable and durable homo for himself and his family in one month. Even to-day, in some parte of the country, dwellings are being Fashioned out of rocks, and travellers who have examined soma of them say that they are quite commodious and pleasant

SMUT IN SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

SMUT IN SEED WHEAT. SmutB in all farm crops are caused by parasitic plants. The life stages of these smuts are two — the mycelial, or growing, and the reproductive or spore stages. The mycelium consists of minute white threads, filled with protoplasm, and are invisible to the naked eye. The plant grows also by means of slender, elongated cells, which increase in length, dividing and keeping pace with the growth 'of the plant on which it lives. In the first stage of growth the smut does not visibly show itself in tbe way of swollen or discoloured tissue. The spore stage is caused by the collection of innumerable mycellium threads at one point, usually where the blossom or seed of the host plant is situated. There they are changed into microscopic, round, spiny, dark oporea filled with protoplasm. These are the Beed of the smut. In the looBe smut of wheat these microscopic spores are de tached by the wind before the unaffected grain iB yet mature, and in flying about lodge in the glum...

Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES. FARM SEPARATOR CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES. FARM SEPARATOR CREAM. JK3EARM separators have been mtro df&Jp duced faster than the spread of MreM knowledge concerning the require ments to run them properly, and yet it is the easiest of all farm machines to manage when one knows how to re gulato them; and any bright farmer boy can soon learn. But he must first learn, | either from one who knows, or by experi ence, and the latter alone sometimes costs I too much. When a private dairyman buys a separator the result is generally satisfactory, but many that are sold to : creamery patrons result in dissatisfaction to both patrons and factory owners alike. The farmer complains chiefly about the test of his cream. He cannot understand why a test one week or one day is reported but two-thirds as much as the previous time. There are several causeB for variation of the tec.t Tha spaed of turn ing affocts the richness of the cream. The faster it is run the greater the centrifugal force and the pres...

PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

PAPER. In the matter of making and using papsr we are not in line with the Chinese and other Asiatics, who no not only make the finest paper in the world, but apply it to all sorts of uses, mating window panes, fans, umbrellas, sandals, and even cloaks and other garments of it. The art of making paper from mulberry bast is said to have been invented in China in the second century B. C. Afturward bamboo shoots, Btra.r, grasB and ether materials were also used. The manu facture spread to the adjacent countries. The Arabs learned it in Samarcand, and their learned men carefully kept secret the process by which they made paper foi their own ttso. The crusades made Europe acquainted with tbe art, and the first paper mill in Germany dates from the twelfth century. To this day the process of paper-making in the east is simple and apparently crude, the fibres being torn apart with the fingers and the pulp pressed in a primitive contrivance.

DUK-DUKS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

DUK-DUKS. Existing in the islands of the Bismarck Archipelago, near Papua, is a peculiar institution called the Duk-Duk'. It is a secret society, which holds its meetings in the heart of the forest, and at certain timeB sends forth troops of strangely cos tumed dancers to impress and terrify non-members. They are supposed to re present evil spirits and have to be pro pitiated with gifts. The well-known German traveller, Hesse-Wartegg, has been exploring the archipelago and other German Pacific colonies. He Baw a dance of four Duk-Duk maskers, whose appear ance was unearthly enough to justify the panic into which they threw the native women. Of their bodieB nothing was visible but their bare black legs and thighs. Trunk, head, and arms were concealed by a voluminous arrangement of palm and padanus leaves, something like a ballet dancer's skirts, surmounted by an immense, conical wooden helmet, with lineB drawn on it to represent human features. Some of there headpieces were six feet ...

WHERE WASHINGTON SPURNED A CROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

WHERE WASHINGTON SPURNED A CROWN. Pcrcbei upon the brow of a hill, about two miles southeast of Newburg, N. Y., stands a plain, unpretentious rubble monument, erected by the Historical Society of Newburg Bay, which marks this ete of a building within whose walls occurred one of the most dramatic events ' of American history. In 1782-83 a large part of the revolu tionary army were encamped in the fields around this hill, under tbe command of Gen Washington, who had his head, quarters for a time in the Ellison House, in New Windsor, and later on in the Hasbrouck House, at Newburg. The building whose site is now worked by a monument was a sort of msetinsr hall, or public building, for the use of the officers and soldiers, called the Temple. In 1782, owing to lack of pay, etc., discontent with their lot, distrust of a republican form of government had gained a formidable foothold among the rank and file of the army. Matters had reached such a pass, indeed, that a secret meeting was call...

tA BREAKFAST ROBE. The comfort and convenience of having by one a dainty breakfast robe or dressing gown, or a loose robe such as one can slip, into on returning from a dusty excursion, or fatiguing day's work, is largely appre-' ciated by the busy woman. Tha Bug ires ion given in tne ruu-ienecn ssercn this weeks showB a graceful robe that might be carried out in flannel, cashmere, nun's veiling or crepoliae. It should be [ pet into a small yoke, concealed beneath a fichu of esprit net and lace— if the robe is of crepoline or some such fabric ; if of flannel, the fichu should be replaced by a falling collar of flannel, frilled with laoe.' The robe is bordered with guipure in sertion, into which also the sleeves are gathered. The front might be mounted without any fulness into the yoke, or be eased in, aa sketched.
