USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 4 May 1889
USEFUL HINTS. Buy your cheque-books with the stamps impressed. Never sign anything without looking first to see if it be properly stamped. Remember, the jirst person who executes any instrument is responsible for afflixing and cancelling the stamp. Do not forget that the date, as well as the initials or signature, must be written on the stamp. lHave all your printed receipts stamped ready for use. L-etlters cnowledging paymaent 'of any sum of £5 or over by draft or cheque must pay duty. Penalties may be recovered summarily before two justices, and the Minister may allow a portion of the amount to go to an informer. Look carefully at your deeds. One error may invalidate an important transaction. If several considemrtions are expressed in one .document, you must pay on each separately. Do not let bills run too long : keep them runder £5.

iVE think every ratepayer who has the welfare of Prahran at heart, will now freely admit that we acted a patriotic and righteous part in comnpelling Mr. Dixos, \M.L.A., to formulate into specific written charges the allegations that lie made oi the 27th Mrch, be fore the election, at the St. fMattliew's elhool-room, regarding the roll-stualling by, and gross partisanship of, the Pararan municipal ofllicials. We were certain at the time-as doubtless were hat large proportion of his audience, trho hissed him so vigorously when lie gave utterance to the accusations--that tlie charges could not be substantiated ly evidence or faets, and that they wvires apiece of meaningless election clap trap. The result of the investigation ly the officers committee proves us right in this conjecture; but for the credit of the city of Prahranl we in sisted, in every issue published sub sequent to the verbal attack by Mr. Dixox, that lie should either prove, or withdrawl and apologise for, the asser ti...

ONIONS AND BEEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 4 May 1889
ONIONS AND BEEF. What is the most strengthening food for a convalescent? Well, you know the beef-tea theory has been ex ploded. The most life.giving and digestible food that can be given to one just recovering from an illness is chopped beef. Just take a pound of raw beef, cut off all the fat, slice two onions, and add pepper and salt. Then chop the onions and meat toge ther, turning them over and over until both are reduced almost to a pulp ; then spread on rye bread and cat as sandwiches. People talk about celery being a nervine, but let me tell you there is nothing which quiets the nerves without bad results like onions. The use of them induces sleep, and much strength is obtained from them. -Exchange.
