LARDNER. CHURCH ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894
LARDNER. CHURCH ANNIVERSARY. The anniversary of the Lardner Presbyterian Church was celebrated by a, public tea meeting in the Mechanics' Institute, on Wednesday evening. The date was rather an unfortunate one, residents of the district being in the midst of harvest ing operations, and the weather of late being of an uncertain nature, the farmers have no choice but to forego any little diversion until their crop is safely housed, consequently, the crowded attendance of previous years was not repeated. The trables were presided over by the Misses Johnson, Currie, Hamilton and Hardie, and the good things were abundant and varied, and what was equally noticeable the visitors were made to feel at ease by the friendly and hearty welcome extended to them with a sincerity that could not be questioned. The after-meeting was presided over by Mr. R. M'Naughton, of Warragul, the attendance having been con siderably augmented in the meantime. The first item on the liberal pro gramme was a vocal...

They are called (1) the elementary or lowest type, (2) the knotty or philosophic, (3) the spatulate, (4) the square, (3) the pointed. (6) the psychic, and (7) the mixed. The elementary or lowest type of hand is one familiar to everybody, perhaps be cause it is so common. It is a broad hand, witL short, thick, stubby, awkward fingers, heavy palm and a thumb reechine generally to the root of the first finger. This hand merely indicates animal life,' such as is found in the low caste Hindoo, and the lower order of all hu. manity.

BE CHEERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 23 January 1894
BE CIIEERFUL. Don't sit in a corner and mope'because things are not going just as you would like. A disagreeable face will not alter a disagreeable fact. Try to extract some gain of comfort out of your adversities. Neverdispair. Under whatever circum. stances. be cheerful and hope on. There is nothing so philosophical as a smile. A merry heart is the height of wisdom. The greater part of our grief will dis appear when viewed through the lenses of cheerfulness. Let the dark past sink out of sight. Look toward the sunrise, Shout with merriment as if you saw the dawn kissing the hills. Fill your soul with the visions of the morning and the song of the lark. Then all will become suffused with daylight-all the gloomy places will pulse with sunshine, and the clamuny rocks will glisten with dew. Would you like to know the key to unlock the doorway a happy life ? It is cheerfulness. Mr. D. M'Alpine, one of the exports of the Agricultural department, has furnished to the Minister a report on...
RENOVATING CRAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 23 January 1894
RENOVATING CRAPE. rHow many of you know how to dress crspe the millineris way? Tack on an old table the ordinary thickness of iron ing blanket with muslin cover, larger than the (veil, folded down the centre right side out. Pin firmly all round, but thrust the pin point down into' the blanket. Don't stretch it but let it be natural. Get a piece of glazed cambric the length and width of veil ; wring out of water rather dry; secureothe corners and pass a moderately I hot iron over, but never let it sink on the veil, as it crushes it. This will make a steam and cause the veil to assume its original crink and stiffness. You may have, to repeat the process several times to gain the desired result. Hat or.dress crape trimming can be renovated the same. way without the pinning process. .The shiny side of cambric should be put next goods as it requires the glaze to give it. stiffen. ing.
AMMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 23 January 1894
A•IMOMNA. There is nothing like ammonia fo cleaning earthen or marble basins in bath. ) ooms. specially when used with pulverised chalk. Hair brushes and combs may be kept perfectly sweet by using a few drops in the water in which they are cleansed. Nothing. so quickly restores tone to exhausted nerves and strength to a weary body as a bath containing an ounce of aqua ammonia to each pailful of water. It makes the flesh firm and smooth and renders she body pure and free from unpleasant odours.
INSOMNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 23 January 1894
Insomnia comes to be a habit, often, especially with the elderly, very hard to cure or break up. Anodynes all. lose their effect . ifter a while. Sometimes sleeplessnessmay be overcome by drinking a glass a milk just before retiring-hot or cold, as is most agreeable. Sometimes a "good square meal" at the same hour will have a good effect for. it draws the blood from the brain by giving the stomach something to do. Dipping the feet in cold water several times, and then rubbing them briskly till warm with a coarse towl will sometimes have the desired effect. So as will laying a wet compress under the back of the neck.. Sleep can often be induced, too, by partak ing liberally of common celery. We all know the marked power of celery in quiet ening the nerves. The same may be said ot lettuce also. Eating a generous amount of white onion will also produce sleep; but the unwelcome flavbr would, with many, more than outweigh the benefits. .
