SCIENCE UTILISES ALL THE OX. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 9 April 1898
SCIENCE UTILISES ALL THE OX. In an article on tlie ' Wondt-re of the World's Waste,' William George Jordan, ?in the- 'Jjadies' Home Journal ' (U.S.), details how science at the present day utilises the ox. ' Not many years ago,' he says, ' when an ox was slaughtered forty per cent, of the animal was wasted ; . at the present time ' nothing is lost but its dying breath.' As but one-third of the weight of the animal consists of pro ducts thnt can be eaten, the question of utilising the waste is a serious one. The hlnnri in impd til rpfinincr nilitnr anri in sizing paper, or manufactured into door knobs or buttons. The hide goes to the tanner ; horns and hoofs are transformed into combs and buttons ; thigh bones, worth eighty dollars per ton in America, are cut into handles for clothes-brushes ; fore-leg bones sell for thirty dollars per ton for collar buttons, parasol handles, and jewellery ; the water in which bones are boiled is reduced to glue ; the dust from sawing the bones is fo...
HARKINS LEARNT A LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 9 April 1898
HARK1NS LEARNT A LESSON. Harkms is one of those genial souls who like to be polite to everybody, and the other day, when he sat down by a gentlemanly-looking old man in the tram car, Hark ins said : ' Pleasant day, isn't it ?' ' Hey V responded the old man with his hand to his ear. ' I said it was a pleasant day.' ? What say ?' ' I simply said it was a pleasant day.' ' fiea.se speak a ieetle louder ; lot a trifle 'ard of hearin'.' ' Pleasant day I' roared the red-faced HarkinB, annoyed by the giggles of some girls opposite him. ' These confounded trams make such a noise I can hardly hear at all. If you'll be so kind as to speak a Ieetle louder — ' ' It's of no consequence,' screeched HarkinB. 'Hey?' ' Nothing — nothing at al), sir !' ' What is it ? What did you ask for ? ? 'Oh, nothing much of anything,' howled HarkinB, whereupon the old man took a couple of coppers from his pocket, and, offering them to HarkinB, said: * Well, I don't often give, an!, it looks to me as if a well-dre...

Rings. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 9 April 1898
Rings. Rings in the middle ages were some times so designed as to inflict, injury. In Bavaria up to the beginning of the last century the peasants wore rings of brass, on the octagonal bezel of which stood out five steel points, half-an-inch high. Worn on the middle finger of the hand, a blow from a- burly fist, thus armed, would have left a lasting mark on an opponent, xne novels wiiu uie ring and the Incidents arising from tlie golden circlet are innumerable. In tlie old stories of Teutonic and Scandinavian origin it Is constant. In the ' Faereyinga Saga' there Is one of Earl Hakon,7 who, falling In love with a statue, prays; that she will give him her golden flnger-rlng, and she does. When Slgmund, his rival, tries to take tlie ring from Earl Hakon Sigmund perishes. There are dozens of similar stories.' ? . . . .;i '_ ? ?. ?? .. .. ? ' ? -=-. -?- ??

Gas Without Coal. A New Illuminarvt. After reccDt events in Sydney the public are likely tu io .k askance at inventions claiming to develop a hig'i standard of Huraination at a very moderate coat (nays Friday's Melbourne Age). Bat a represen tative of the Age yusterJiiy 1ml an oppor tunity of witnessing tho trial of a new patent gas, which promts s to revolutionise mod ra eyateme of lighting. The inventor is Mr. A. A. S-ephenson, and hU system has been in duly use tor iigmiDg lie town ui Fiauttaiuu since November last. Its superiority to coal gas has been amply demonstrated in these practical trials, and its cheapness may be gathered from tbe fact that the co*t of manufacture does not exceed Is per 1O00 cubic feet.

Passing by tue scene o£ operations later on, the manager was astonished to see his employee seated on the ground sur rounded by black g-ins, while three other ' What is the meaning of all this ?' naturally asked the manager. ' Oh,' replied the aboriginal with a grandilo quent wave of the hand, ' me let 'im con tract to these fellows for three bob.'
Forbidden to Smoke. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 9 April 1898
Forbidden to Smoke. I hear from Russia (says the corre spondent of an English paper) that the young Czarina is so excessively averse to ladies smoking cigarettes that, not content with steadily refusing to smoke herself, hoping the hint would not be lost upon her people, but finding they still clung to the cigarette, the Empress has now peremptorily forbidden the use 01 tobacco to any female, laay or other wise, in the Palace. Here she will doubtless succeed ; but the habit has taken too firm a hold upon foreign femi nine taste for even a Czarina to abolish.
