When Australia was a Penal Colony. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 July 1888

When Australia was a Penal Colony. The only object aimed at by the British Government in settling Australia was to get rid of the convicts. One can scarcely believe even that it was expected the convicts should do more than drag out a brief and miserable existence tinder the rigours of a role designed rather to hasten than prolong their end. The fiTxa-ptreraent under which Governor Phillip a patched did not contain a single of permanence. Not the least startling part in connection with this point is, that of the total number of 1,030 persons who landed from the vessels of the expedi tion only 135 were women. The other "livestock" consisted of five horses, eleven cows, one boll and twelve sheep, while the expedition was so badly provisioned that from the very moment of landing starvation began to stare the settlers in the face. ( Te redress the balance of the sexes, the British Government, in a dispatch, of which a copy may be seen to this day in the Record Office, authorised tbe Gov...

TALE. My Lady Primrose. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

TALE. Mf Lady Primrose. There was a sound of distant bugling in the air-a melancholy, discordant kind of bugling. Now and then the soil seemed to quake beneath the tread of seme military detachment marching along- with measured tramp. The voice of the Drill Sergeant could be heard in the land, together with the rattle of arms from eora*i regiment on parade, and now and then a burst of military music"* while penetrating these mingled sounds might be heard the warbling of skylarks from on high, or the thrilling note of a cuckoo in some far-distant plantation. All these sounds heard Sophie Gerard as she opened the window to let in the crisp morn ing air and the cheerful voice of spring. Breakfast was all ready, and Sophie was waiting with the eager appetite of youth, for her rather, Qolcnel Gerard, has not yet come home from his morning ride. In a general way the Colonel was & model of military punctuality, and Sophie, getting impatient, went out into the porch to see if he wer...

How to Dekorn Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

How to Dekorn*?attle To secure the head of a steer before de horning, X used touse a stanchion, but I now use a chute, and my nd^v «jewel.' On one side of the chute a plank runs out parallel with the animal's necfe^ and the neck is lashed to the plank by this ' jewel,' so that the operator can stand in front of the beast and cut at the right spot to prevent bleeding and also prevent a stab hoin from growing again. It would take columns to explain in detail how, "Why and wihere to cut. Properly dehorned, no bandages are to be used, nor ointment of any kind. As to after treatment, keep away rough boys and dogs, give plenty to eat and drink and provide good warm sheds. There are good reasons for not using a stiff-back sajv, principally because it may do the work sb that a stub horn would grow again, which is simply making a fed job of the whole business. A. saw must not be used on a calf's'head, nor a jack-knife, unless it is expected to lose from the operation. My discovery consisted ...

FARM LAND GARDEN. !A Codlin Moth Trap. ' Come with me, and see how I am getting the best of theco&lin moth/ saidfa prominent citizen to a Herald man to-aay. The reporter went. The gentleman referred to has eighty four trees planted about his lot, fifty-three of which are bearing fruit. Many of them are apple and pear trees. In the past this gen , tleman has been much annoyed by the codlin moth, and he has been tryitig forsQjmg time to discover a method for its exteransiation. Being in the habit of studying ojit the cause of things, he decided that the moth was at tracted to the blo.ssom or blossom end of the apple by the peculiar odour or perfume it exhales. Here there was a basis upon which; to work. Something must be found which-, would give oat a similar odovtr and also be destructive to the moth. This object was attained by mining two parts molasses with one part of vinegar. This mixture smells almost exactly like an apple-^Lossom, and an experiment of ten days' duration...

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

ODDS AND ENDS. i . *. . - Hope of ill-gain is the beginning of loss. -Democritus. More men have the coinage of their delu sions than of their convictions. A brain might as well be staffed with saw , dust as with nnused knowledge. It is no disgrace to be poor, bat the richer you grow the lighter will be your step. Our lives should be like the day-more beautiful toward the evening. Knowledge is like moDej--the more it is circulated the more people get the benefit of it. When a man has no good reason fur doing a thing, he has one good reason for letting it alone. There is only one thing that is more terrible than to say a mean thing, and that is to do one.-Sir William Sarcourt. No school is more necessary to children than, patience, because (says Riehter) either the will must be broken in childhood, or the heart in old age. According to the Detroit Free Press, a Chicago burglar read in a newspaper that he had overlooked eighty dollars in a bureau drawer. He returned the next night and ...

How Mrs. Lanprtry Preserves Her Bloom. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

How Mrs. Lanprtry Preserves Her JHoom. This remarkable story is from the New York World-. Some time ago Mrs. I/angtryy found, to her great regret, when Bhe decided to take np her residence in this country, that the American climate was far more trying to the complexion than the even temperature and moist atmosphere of England. The sudden changes of heat and cold, the furnace heated rooms, and intense frigidity of the winter air dry ap the skin and lay the ground work for wrinkles. Then the keen, dry atmosphere keeps the nerves at a high tension all the while, and the pressure of the active life of this country increases the impulse toward nervousness. Before long she was horrified an4 disgusted to find that the smooth silliness of her skin was becoming dry and shrivelling into slight wrinkles about the. eyes and month. She sat down promptly and wept, and after the due and natural overflow of feminine distress, dried her eyes and began to search for some unguent, some mollifying crea...

A Remedy for Obesity. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

A Remedy for Obesity. One of the handsomest men in toiqp, a prominent officer of the Louisville and Nashville railroad, told a reporter of a remedy for reducing flesh, which, he says, is really wonderful. It is the same that Bismarck, the German Chancellor, has subjected himself to, and from which his avoirdupois was decreased some sixty pounds. The first thing one must do upon arising in the morning, my friend says, is to drink a gobletful of cool, not cold, water. In a quarter of an hour repeat it, and just before breakfast drink the third glass. Wli.n you first try this you will fed. as if a whole watermelon had been disposed, but after a morning or two this ' swelled' feeling will have disappeared. Continue this water course for several weeks and yout surplus flesh will be gone and the fear of bursting vest buttons over. I am sure it is a great remedy, and recommend it to my friends who are afflicted with obesity. The effect that this stomach bath has had on my informant is surp...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. The eolitaire diamond ring worn by Mrs. W. H. Vanderbilt cost §48,000. The Princess of "Wales and her associates are setting the fashion of wearing as much jewellery as possible. Green in all shades, f from apple to olive , is a favorite hue for the trimming of black straw or Neapolitan hats. Turkey-red cotton has been used for a bonnet in London, and a fair Parisian has dared to wear a. hat lined "witn pink flannel. . The latest London fad is to wear about ^the neck a lace scarf so long that the ends barely miss being trodden on when the wearer walks. Black toilettes still lead all others, and for for evening gold-embroidered black silk, combined with gofi. colored moir&, is the acme of elegance. Pretty gowns for misses are of white camel's hair, striped with gold galloon, or of white cashmere striped with, velvet in' bine, brown or scarlet. Good form now requires loose gloves for women as well as men. By consequence fashionable ladies have gone up at least ...

ART & LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

ART & LITERATURE. Mr. SaJa's autobiography, long since an nounced, is now definitely promised for pub lication. in September. Julian Hawthorne says in.4 -America,' that he never saw his father in the act of compo sition-no one ever did. * Tank' plays are not new, as a tank was used in 1805, in a play called ' Life on the Ocean Wave,' in which a dog rescued a 'rag' baby from a tank foil of water on the stage. In the new number of the usually correct Orientalische Bibliographie, Rider Haggard's ' King Solomon's Mines' is entered under the head of Old Testament Literature. Zola says that he receives twenty thousand dollars on an average for each of his novels but that his dramatic pieces, with the ex ception of ' L'Assommoir,' have hardly paid his copying expenses and cab fares. An old and battered oil-painting of Robert Barns, bought in an obscure junk shop in Toronto for a few dollars, has touted out to be the work of Raeburn, the Scotch portrait painter, and worth £2,000.

Coffee and Tea. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Coffee and Tea. We are indebted to an interesting article in Popular Science News, by Maurice D. Clarke, M. D., for the substance of this paragraph: The essential principle of coffiee is the alkaloid caffeine, but there is also developed during the roasting a volatile oil-caffeone. The effects of the two on the drinker are different in time and character. Caffeone is speedier and more transient than caffeine. It reduces the arterial tension, and thus allows a freer flow of blood and a more rapid action of the heart. Hence it stinulates the brain, renders the mind clear, and promotes wakefulness. Gaffeine, on the other hand, slows the heart, aiicL expends its main force on the spinal cord. To this fact is due the"shaking band of th<j| inveterate coffee-drinker-to which we may add the marked tremor which, alter a few hours, sometimes follows a copious draught - when the stomach is empty. But there is t another effect of the caffeine; it cheeks £the too rapid consumption of ...
