American Items. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1882

A men o?i Items, From Late' American Papers. The latest hit 0r New York gossip concerning millionaires is, says tlie. Chicago Weekly Tribune, that young Mr. Astor, who ran for Congress and tailed to receive the Irish vote, after | having danced at a ball with a cigar J factory girl named Lizzie Lynch, owes his defeat to the money and exertions of Vanderbilt, this being I the latter's method ot revenging himself for- the non-admittance of I the Yanderbilt family to the social circles m which the Astors move. As ^the original Astor traded six bladed jack-knives to the Indians tor hirs, and the original Yanderbilt sculled people across the East Eiver tor five cents, the claims of both lamihes to a place among the aristo cracy of this country seem to \be ' equally slim. \ ^ As is now well-known, solitaire diamonds rings are not the fashion for engagement . rings. The. "utter style/' in New York and Paris is a rare sapphire between two diamonds. But the New York Sun tells of a new and un...

South Creek. ' From our own Correspondent, RAIN still keeps away, but the lieut is not so intense. If rain don't soon come wo will have no grass for the winter. As it is, stook owners have to get hay from Sydney to keep the poor animals from starving-. I As I mentioned in a previous issue about the Good Templars going ahead, any one going near their club room on meeting nights can fully endorse what I said, and I think the expressions, " What fun they must be having!" or, ^ They must be enjoying themselves! " wili soon pass their lips. I heard a member say the other day, that the meetings are getting more jovial every night, and I am glad to hear that such a good cause has taken such a strong hold of the young people of South Creek. This is what you may call " a step in the right direction." A meeting of the trustees of the public cemetery came off last night, Mr. Fleming in the chair. After the minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed, the chair man stated that the o...

The Daughter Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 31 March 1882

TIIQ Daughter Difficulty. "WHAT are we to do with our daughters ? " seems (says London Figaro) to be becoming the burning* question of the day. Men appear to be more and more determined not to marry. They will dance, visit, come to 5 o'clock teas, sing, duets, and ta'k on any subject that is interesting to the female mind j but beyond that they go not. In days not long gone by, India was a sure and certain market for the young British female of the upper class. Even plain girls were certain to go off after a very few months with their father, or uncle, or brother, resi dent in one or other of the presidencies) whilst good-looking young females were snapped up before they had been a couple of weeks in the country. [Make tliem domestic in their habits, good housekeepers, and don't over-educate - they will stand a better chance of getting married ; and if they do not, they have the option and the capacity ot earning a respectable livelihood in positions that are by some females most un...

Affection of the Ears in Children [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 31 March 1882

Affeotion of the Ears in Children THE following approximative results were obtained bj Dr. Weil, auricular physician at Stuttgart, after an inspection of 45000 school-children :-1. With a normal sharp ness of hearing- a whisper can be understood at a distance of 20 to 25 metres, when every thing rouu'l is quiet; 2. Defective hearing* is very common, 30 per cnnt. of children hearing' with one or both ears were found in national schools, the number of children with TabtwraiH Mi^ttri ng' "Being much" greater ; 57 The social condition has a certain influence, hh children of well-to-do people are less affli'ted than others. At St. Catherine's Institution there were only 10 per cent, of girls with defective hearing*. In most cases the troubles arose from accumulated and hardened wax in the ear. There were about thirteen per cent, suffering* from this cause. This fact, one of the most frequent causes of hard, hearing, is too often, followed by in flammation of the ear tubes, ac ompanied by...
