A Skeleton Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

A Skeleton Factory* The Monde dc lo Scierne describes a grue some factory which, is said to be flourishing at St Denis. Within its walls human skeletons are being 'made' in the following manner. The largest room of the building is filled with enormous kettles in which the bones ot the corpses are boiled until all the flesh is sepa rated. from them. The skulls are prepared separately and in the most careful manner. One way of preparing the skulls of children and young people is to fill the hollow where the brains were situated with peas and then let the latter swell in water, which causes even the most delicately jointed bones te separate without being injured. After all the bones have been carefully washed they are bleached either by chloral or exposure to the sun, 'and are then-joined in. another de partment of the factory, and made flexible by means of brass wires. It appears that a thorough knowledge of osteology as well as an artbriic eye are required for the construc tion of a ...

Treatment for Exhausted Nerves. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

Treatment for fixhaasteAlVmeg. ^ LOf fourteen pases that I- have completely secluded as a method of treatment in nerve exhustiou, not one has done "Well. I have found it better to plan a series of amuse ments and a course of passive exercise, together -with frequent feeding. My busi ness men lake two hours daily -with the health lift, where the exercise, together with mas sage and jolly company proves strong enough .to call them away from their regular occupa tions every day. They drink a tumbler of ?lilk at a dairy or a bowl of bouillion at a pharmacy every two hours. In these days of extracts of beef, mutton, > chicken, clam, etc.', there is no need for anyone who can pay for them to go hungry. Even sightseeing, -thatmost exhausting of labours-may [be rendered less fatiguing by feeding every two hours, if it be only with a tumbler of milk. Plenty of digestible food, and two hours stolen from the middle of a busy day, are the best remedies for nervous exhaustion, Dr. Jr. F. Hutc...

Yongala Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

Tongala Jottiiigg. (BY A CORRESPONDENT.J Having undertaken the office of re-, cordtr of the waggings of this little local community, I must in all earnestness beg your readers to be more kind than critical during the perusal of my men tions of passing events; and when opin ions and ideas of the writer are given that do not coincide with theirs, I must ask them to bear in mind that but few people observe from the same stand point ; that whilst our views are diversfied our friendships may remain, intact. I shall not affect originality, for the weeds or flowers of a present spring are tut copies of those produced by seasons which have come and gone. I shall endeavour to be a true and fear less scribe, and beyond that-nothing. The enlargments of the limits of the operations ofDistrictCouncils and the in creased powers and functions accorcledio them by the new Act,is bearing fruit in the shape of increased interests in matters pertaining to local government.

The Doom of the Guillotine. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

The Doom of the Guillotine. It ia probable that the next European country to abolish the penally of capital punishment will be France. For some years past French public opinion has been moving1 in the direction of this abolition. Although the frequency -with which M. Grevy used his prerogative of mercy with regard to con demned criminals was somewhat ridiculed, he had popular feeling on his side. The French, who have probably executed more people than all the other European nations together, have lost BO much of their old faith in the. usefulness of the guillotine, that it will be no matter for surprise if the result of the debate that is soon to take place in the Chamber of Deputies on this question of capital punishment were found to be very encouraging to those who wish to substitute imprisonment for life for the penalty of death. Among these in France are men to whom the term of sentimentalists can hardly be, applied. M. Jules Simon, for instance, is an advocate for the abolitio...

Paris Green Spray. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 July 1888

Paris Green Spray. A correspondent of the S. F. CJtrotaeU writes for information as to the proportion of paris green to be used in making a spray , for the destruction of the codlin moth. After a series of experiments extending over many years, Professor Forbes, State Eutomold^isfc of Illinois, gives as the result of his trials" that the spray should be made by the mixture of three-fourths of an ounce of paris green by weight, of a strength to contain 15.4 pa. cent of arsenical poison, stirred in two and. a half gallons of water. A hand forcepttmp. is used with a spray nozzle, and the liquid is applied until the leaves begin to drip. By one or two applications ia early spring there has been a saving effected of folly Taper cent of the apples. The trees should be sprayed in May and early in Jane. It is of little use to apply the remedy later than this, as the poison takes effect only when it reaches the surface of the apple between the lobes of the calyx, and this it can only do when...

FARM AND GARDEN. Pure Olive Oil. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 July 1888

FARM AND GARDEN. Pure Olive OIL Cotton-seed oil has become quite important as an article cf food. It is shipped from the United States in -vast quantities to Spain and Italy, whence it returns to America labelled "Pure Olive Oil." For adulterating pur poses it enters largely into all fatty sub stances for domestic comsumplion, such as lard, butter, cheese, &c.; and there is quite: an extensive demand for it in the Northern States for the manufacture of " Pure French Sardines" out ®f a small local herring. The labouring classes in towns such as Mar seilles have taken to consuming this oil as an article of food in place of olive oil, because of its cheapness. Pure olive oil is getting more scarce-or rather more difficult to pro cure-every year, as the practice of mixing the produce of the Riviera with inferior oils from Sicily and Tunis, and also with cotton and sesame oils, is all but universal now among the large dealers.

Forty Drunken Snakes. Colonel Irvine, who lives on the outskirts of Richmond, Kentucky, had three barrels of Anderson county -whisky fourteen years old in. his cellar, says a Lexington paper. He left the bungholes open to age it faster and mate It mellow. Judge of his surprise when he went to show it to some visiting friends one morning to find that it was nearly all gone, and in one of the barrels only about two gallons were left. In this barrel over forty* large black snakes were discovered, all in a beastly state of intoxication, while in the dark corners of the cellars groups of rattlesnakes were coiled, -some sobeiing up while others : were in various stages of intoxication. They . had. . all gone in through, a hole " in the basement door, and, as Colonel Irvine was away with his family for about three months, it is supposed the snakes, not being disturbed, stayed with the whisky, and did not draw a sober breath during ail that time. Patrick Cunniigham was called-in, and he suc...

Uses of the Lemon. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 July 1888

Uses of the Lemon. Lemonade from juice ot the lemon is one of 1 the best and safest drinks for any person, : whether in health or not. It is suitable for all! stomach diseases, gravel, liver complaint, inflammation nf the bowels and lever. It is a specific against worms and skin c ^mplaints. Lemon juice is the best antiscorbutic remedy known. It not only cures this disease but prevents it. Sailors make daily use of it for this purpose. I advise every one to rub their gums with lemon juice to keep them in good condition. The hands and nails are kept clean, white, soft -and supple by the daily use of lemon instead of soap. It also prevents chilblains. Lemon is used in intermittent fever, mixed with strong, hot, black coffee, without sugar. Neuralgia may be cnred by rubbing the part affected with cut lemon. It is valuable, also, to cure warts «nd to destroy dandruff on the head, by rubbing the roots of the hair with it. It will allevi&e and finally cure coughs and ! colds and h...
