HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
HEALTH HINTS. The mnedicine-glass should always be kept scrupulously clean. Any nasty taste left in the mouth by medicine may be taken away by eating a lump of sugar, a spoonful of preserve, or by sucking a slice of lemon. The teeth should be cleaned after tak ing medicines containing iron or any drug which is likely to injure or discolor the enamel. The diet must be regulated according to the medicine. Rest is one of the best medicines for an over-tired woman.
A JUDGE ON WOMEN'S DRESS [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
A JUDGE ON WOIIMEN'S DRESS Last month the last sitting of the Bloomsbury County Court prior to the Long Vacation was chiefly devoted to the settlement of disputes with refer ence to ladies' dresses. In the first case a stylishly dressed defendant assured the judge that she was practically without the means of subsistence. All she had to keep herself, husband, and a child, was 13s a week, out ofa which she had to pay 5s a week rent. Judge Bacon: But you can't buy violet satin dresses out of that, ygu know. Defendant: Your honor, jthis dress is eighteen years old, and wasgiv'en to me by a lady friend. Judge Bacon: Then your dress has worn very well, madam. (Laughter.) The next plaintiff sued for the value of two shirts belouglng to her husband,. which had beau sent to a laundry and not returned. Judge Bacon. Why is your husband not here? These are not your shirts, you don't wear them, they are your hus band's garments: If I allowed you to sue, being a in;mrried woman, -there would be ...
USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
USEFUL HINTS. To remove stains from the hands after peeling potatoes, apples, or pears, first wash the hands without using soap, then, while still wet, rub them with pumice stone, and afterwards wash them with soap and water. W~Tcmen who value their complexions should be careful always to sleep in a plr?erly ventilated bedroom. Heavy hangings round the bed, and heavy co verings on the -body, should be avoided. No girl can expect to come down in the morning with a complexion of lilies and roses who has spent the night in a stuffy, impure atmosphere. Light colored evening gloves can be dry cleaned easily at home in a very short time. The gloves must be put on the hands, or on wooden dummy hands, then rubbed all over with fine Fuller's earth, and next with a dry flannel, and finally shaken to get rid of the powder. Mix a little French chalk with sifted bran, and rub the gloves with this after the former process. Care of Furs.-As this is the time when furs must be relegated to their sum...
CARVING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
CARVING. In a former issue I gave some hints on carving poultry. Says a contemporary on carving joints: Next in importance, perhaps, is the carving of a rib roast of beef. This on being removed from the oven is placed on a hot dish with the ribs downward. If the roast has formed a hard crust on the top of the meat pass the blade of the knife under and cut it away, so as to per mit easy cutting into slices. Stick in the fo:rk lengthwise on top of the roast, near the edge, hold it firmly in the left hand, and with the large, sharp knife in the right hand, cut carefully straight down the rib bone, in even slices about a quar ter of an inch thick. Hold up all of the slices together, and cut .gently under neath, separating them from one another; arrange nicely in the dish, and serve. In carving a leg of lamb or mutton, about two-thirds of the meat will be found on one side of the main bone. This part of the meat, if properly cooked, should always be good and tender. Close to the bone-cut...
HIS EIGHTH BRIDE. A GIRL OF FIFTEEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
HIS EIGHTH BRIDE. A GIRL OF FIFTEEN. One of the most interesting per soutlities we (Melbourne "Herald" have heard of for many a day is Mr Alexander Gregg Belleville, a citizen of the United States. Gladstone, Bisnumrek, Gordon. such men are all very well in their way, as also are Sandow. Brigham Young, Plugger Bill, and James Corbett in theirs; but what are they when we men tion Belleville? The man had married and buried seven wives in regular suc cession when the latest of our files of New York papers were shipped, and, behold, the bridegroom cometh;'he was on the point of marrying an eighth! Itd is true that Judge Haughton, of St. Louis, refused to perform the ceremony on the flimsy ground that a man of fifty-seven ought not to be mated to a girl of lifteen, albeit that her mother gave consent. Mr Belleville promptly determined to make a trip into an ad joining State in the hope of there lind ilg a nmore acreeable official. Therefore the clhnees are that by this time the selptenar...
STRANGE MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
STRANGE MARRIAGES. In all the records of strange marrliaes none can possibly exceed that which has recently taken place at St. Louis. U.S. The bride and bridegromwere originally man and wife who had been divorced. This in itself would not make the cas3 unique, for such marriages have bIen known to occur before, but the bride groom had been married four times and yet has had only two wives, for wife number two was married after wlfe mum ber one was divorced, wife number on' remarried as wife number three, and hie wife number two mrarried again after number three a dRrorced ha~.
HEARTHS AND HOMES. TAKING CARE OF THE PIANO. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
HFARTHS AND HOM!ES. '1'AKIN C'ARE OF TI]E PIANO. Those who love their piano (and what trite mnlsiialn does not?), feel real re ,ret at notic.ing how often in these dalys the instrument is made into :a kind of table by placing china and oither small ornaments up)0on the topT of it. The chin:! cases a. rattling lnoise, most antagonistic to the "sweet soundls" that should only be heard when the instru ment is played, whilst books and paper!s dealen its tone. W, lhen I see the top of a piano so ill-used. I know ilie measure of the "love" felt for it by its owner.
USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
USEFUL HINTS. It takes a healthy man four months to cat his own weight in food. Caterpillars are great eaters, the dif ferent species consuming from five to twenty-five times their own weight of food each day. A fat animal of any kind suffers in hot weather. Keep all in a good, thrifty condition, so that they can be fattened to good advantage later on. Endeavor to increase your production of grain, hay, and root crops by better cultivation, rather than by planting more acres. WVe must diminish the cost of production by improved methods. Fowl manure is very rich and concen trated. Its most Important constituent being nitrogen; it is twice as rich as sheep manure; more than twice as rich as that of horses, and nearly live times as rich as that of cows. Nature evidently intended that the pig should eat little at a time and often, and its stomach was fashioned accordingly. The most successful feeder is the one who recognises this fact, and governs his feeding operations accordingly. The...
WHAT IT IS WELL TO KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
WH~AT IT IS WEL;L TO KIiNOlW. Accidents of :t slight kind are so fre qucntl, where there are children that it is well to know what to do on such oc casions. Bruises should be at once bathed with very hot water. and then (if the skin be not broken) with a weak solution of arnica and water, but in re gard to this latter remedy it should al ways be remembered that if there be the least irritation of the skin it must never be used. Where such has been done to places where the skin was broken, erysipelas has been known to occur. It is a good plan, after the bathing, to gently rub some unsalted butter over the brtised place, or if that be not obtainable, a piece of brown paper soaked in one-third of brandy and two-thirds of water. The paper should be renewed as it becomes dry. For bruises that are broken, my authority deenms it best to lay a !Weire of soft, fine handkerchief over them, antd paint that with flexible collodion., mnd. as this will cause the handkerchitef to adhere to the ski...

BISMARCK'S DEATH BED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
BIS MA-CK'S DEATH ' BEDE Professor Lenbach, the painter, s'ho has been at. Friedrichruhe, has given some of his impressions of the house of mourning. He says:--. "I had travelled to Friedrichruh with the sole object of kissing for the last time the hand of Prince Bismarck.When I arrived, at one o'clock, I' found the family and the household in a condition not only of deepest mourning, as was nataral, but of confusion bordering on helpik'sne-?tss. The ladiles were weeping, Princ Herbert Bismarek was greatly indispo??d. and at the time of my arival was still' in bed, and even Count Rant z:au looked pale and nervous. The Prince's last days of suffering tried the family fearfully. The most collected of all appeared to be Count Bill, but he left all the arrangements to his elder bro ther. It was quite impossible to make any arrangemeent at all for the solemn and imposing ceremony which, would have been worthy of the great dead. The old Chancellor was not notoriously lack ing in all sense...
A PARIS ROMANCE. AN AGED COMPOSER AND HIS YOUNG BRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
A PARIS ROMANCE. AN AGED COMPOSER AND HtIS YOUNG BRIDE. All Paris (according; to a London con temporary) Is talking about the young b-ide of the aged composer RPeyer. Her name is Andree Picard. She h?-s; had a picturesque career. Although still young. she has been in the artistic world of Paris for more than 10 years. Her an cestry is obscure. Her mother was one, of those persons who gain their liveli hood at the entral vegetable market of Paris-they are known usually as "dames des halles." The work of selling vege tables in the small hours of the morning did not appeal to her. Andree had the Parisians precocious knowledge of the uses of beauty. She soon obtained em ployment In the studios. Then she at tracted the attention of some of the greater artists, among them Gerome. As she grew older her beauty of form grew toward perfection. Gerome used her continually as a model in his paint ings and sculptures. Then he produced his "Tanagra." This reveals THE ZENITH OF HER BEAUTY. Andree ...
HORTICULTURAL. THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
HCRIICUL URAL. THE ORICHARD. Anthracnose, or Bl-ack Spot, proves very troublesome in the vineyard. It makes its appearance in the form of mi nute circular dots on stems, leaves and berries. The marks of this farmyard disease become lighter in color as it be comes older, and increases considerably; in size. Bordeaux mixture has been found one of the best remedies for com bating this disease. The first spray ing should be given when the buds be gin to swell, the second when the leaves are one-third grown, and a third when the vines are in full bloom. These sprayings should be continued at inter vals of about fourteen dPys. The fol lowing is the formula recommended byl Mr 1M'Alpine, the Government Patholo gist :-Put 4 Ibs. of freshly slaked quick lime, which has been cooled, and passed'. through a sieve into a wooden vessel holding 20 gallons. Take 41bs. of treacle, mixed with a: few pints of water, and lour over the lime, and mix well togd ther. Then make up to 18 gallobs'.with water,...
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. Plants of cyperus may be raised from seed in the hot bed. When the plants have been potted on from thumb pots coo. treatment may be given, as heat is thee unnecessary. These plants are useful fao cutting purposes; also prove effectivE when planted with ferns, etc., in hanging baskets. Where a young stock of gar denias were raised, according to previous directions, the plants should be growing freely, and will need 6 inch pots. The shoots of the young plants must be. pinched out to induce them to branchi freely. Give the plants plenty of lightO and a moist atmosphere, but do not give too much moisture at the roots, other wise the plants will become stunted. When well rooted a little chemical man ire may be given every fortnight;i sprinkle it lightly on the surface of the soil. Old plants that it is necessary to keep may be cut back and started into growth again; giving the plants a brislc heat. If bottom heat can be given so. much the better. Dracaena...
THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
THE FLOWER GARDEN. The warm weather of the past week has had a marked effect on the growth of herbaceous and other plants. AJera tums, lobelias, zinnias, asters, stocks~ phloxes, galliardias, and other plants raised from seed ought not long to be kept thickly in pans or boxes, for when once they become stunted they rarely re cover free growth. A sowing in open ground may be made of the showy nas turtiums. These often prove effective where many other plants fail from hOpt weather. French and African marigolds may be sown in their permanent quar ters, but should be kept some little dis tance back from the edge of the border, owing to their height. The Japanese maize is very effective in the flower bor der; its variegated foliage is also useful for decorative purposes. Roses that were budded last season and are making free growth should have their tops secured to a stake, otherwise they are liable to be blown out of the stock. Keep the foli age free from aphides and other pests; as the...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. THE PURITAN LOVERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
THE LADIES' COLUMN. THE PURITAN LOVERS. "You read my soul, you know my wish, Oh, grant me its fulfilling!" She answered low: "If heaven smiles, And if my father's willing." Her sober answer pleased the youth, Frank, clear, and gravely cheerful. He left her at her father's door, Too happy to be fearful. She looked on high with earnest plea, And heaven seemed bright above her; And when she shyly spoke his name, Her father praised her lover. And when that night she sought her couch, VWith headboard high and olden, Her prayer was praise, her pillow down, And all her dreams were golden. -Marion Douglas, in "Woman's Journal."

DANGER SIGNALS. AND WHAT THEY MEAN. NO FIRE WITHOUT A LITTLE SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898
DANGER SIGNALS. AND WHAT THEY MEAN. NO FIRE WITHOUT A LITTLE -SMOKE. When we are about to do a wrong thing, morally, our conscience warns us against it. If vou see a man about to fall into a hole, get run over, or walk deliberately off a precipice, you either shout at at him or try to pull hilm back. WhIen anythling is going wrong in the body we are always warned. If it is our lungs, it is by pain and cough. If it is our brain, it is by dullness and headache. If it is our heart. it is by faint spells or palpitation. If it is our nerves, it is l, neuralgia. Pains, cough, headache, palpitation, and neuralgia are not diseases. They are simply symnptons or signs that something is wrong, To stop these danger signals we must right the wrong that is causing them. We cannot do this by smother ing them under plasters or deadening them with opiates. Kidney disease has but few symp toms but those symptoms are of the utmost importance, and must not be neglected. A little headache, a little dizz...
