The Bleaching of Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891
The Bleaching of Horses. A curious statement comes from Ar&ansss j concerning a gang of horse thieves, vtho had for their chief aeEietant a young woman — a j bleached blonde — with the nickname cf Sor- I rel Sue. She was given this name because ! she always appeared in public riding a sorrel horse. Her excellent fcortewomanship and her dashing msnner brought her many admirers. The shooting affair which forces her into notice was an ordinary case of plain jealousy. Ibo ot cer admirers, both ; members of the gang, fought for hc-r favor. One was kilUd, and tbe survivor was , Eeverely wounded. A eur^eon was sent for. j He mistook the cirec£icr- end waiksd into the i cabin occupied by *' Sorrel Sue.'

Bil[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891
Blister It is a common custom with most Veteri narians to purgo the hcrse before they blister its leg!. The intention is to remove any lurking irritability cut of the animal's system, but such irritability will moBt pro* bablv be nrovoked bv their coarse and potent blistering agents; therefore, a purgative, by increasing the'defcility^s only likely to render the quadruped more sensitive to outward impressions. A nice ' freshener' is embodied, to the eye of reason, in a drastic purgative, followed by an active irritant applied to a most sensitive part of the body I Whenever a blister is adopted, rather too little than too much oil should be need. Enough to permeate the hair and reach the skin is im perative ; but the action rather depends on the amount of friction which accompanies the agent than cn the quantity of the veBi oatory that may be employed. The friction should be regulated by tbe condition of the surface on which the oil bas to act, and all adjacent tender places, &am...

How to Live Long. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891

Strength and Income. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891
Strength and Income* There are women whose strength would only suffice for their own homes, and the demands in them, if a reserve is to be left for the future when the Btrength-producirig' powers are gone and physical life is pan perised, who give more strength outside than inside their homes. Men and women shrink from financial poverty in old age, bnt the wealth of nations cannot save from physical poverty if strength has not been administered wisely. Every man and woman has a right to a spiritual, a mental, life that will administer to the future. It is the reserve fund on whioh they must draw when the world for gets them on its forward march, when en feebled vision and halting step leave them at the roadside for tbe chariot of death. How many men and women who are busily hoard ing money for that future are hoarding the strength that will make it doubly rich ? It is appalling, tho rate at which we live, using | every day every ounce of strength we make and drawing on future Btreng...

PARLIAMENTARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891
Parliamentary. Parliament assem- J bled on Tuesday, but the opening proceedings were not of an interest ing nature. The Irovernor s speech gave a forecast of tbe proposed legis lation of tbe ensuing session, and then followed Mr Hancock with the Ad dress-in-Reply. The honor of mov ing the Address-in- Reply is always conferred upon a new member, and Mr Hancock accordingly delivered his maiden speech. Coming from a prominent member of tbe Trades' Hall his remarks are viewed with a certain amount of interest* Although Mr Hancock sits behind the Ministry his utterances were not such as to show that he was entirely in accord with the Government programme, and he lost no time in pointing out what he did not approve of. These were Federation, and the extension of tbe franchise to women. He was particularly rough regarding the Go vernment just ousted, which he re garded as the enemy of the trades unionists. The calling out of the militia at the late strike kas-eTidtsrrfcly— imbued Air Hanco...
