The Chiltern Hundreds. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
The Chiltern Hundreds. 0 . The Stewardship of the Chiltern Hundreds being manifestly destined to disappear ere long from the list of convenient Parlia mentary fictions, it is satisfactory to observe that this ancient office has found an historianin a contributor to the new number of "The Quarterly." He traces it from the days when it was an. active and honorable appointment, beetowed by the autocratic willof the reigning sovereign upon county magnates or Court favorites, till it had dwindled down, towards the middle of the last century, to an empty title, afd shows how ithas since come to be claimed as an indisputable right by membersdesiring by that wayto vacate aseat. Originally the grant was stated to be made because the Chancellor of the Exche. quer" reposed especial trust and confidence in the care and fidelity" of the recipient, but the soandal occasioned by the fact that the notorious Mr Edwin James, Q.C., in 1861, fled the country for pressing personal reasons, immediately a...
THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
THE- WIDE WORLD. a-ý As we happen to know, more than one attempt has been made to interview " the Father of the Home;" to the "Daily Chronicle" belongs the credit of snccess. In the course of an interesting review of contemporaries, Disraeli came up. "I was on very friendly terms years and years with Disraeli," said Mr Villiers. S"Wre you in the House when he made that early and historic speech of his-half threat, half defiance P" "The one closing with the bold threat that the day would come when theHouse would hear him? Oh, yes, Iheard that speech. Roebuck had attacked him; he got up, and there was great curiosity to hear and see what Benjamin would do. The speech was not specially successful; it was halting and faltering. lHe did not speak at all well on that occasion, and the House was not disposed to listen to him, Then it washe exclaimed that, though they would not hear him, the day would come whenthey would be obliged to do so. All the scene comes back to me vividly-a House so...

The M.haraja of Patiala. The Maharaja of Patiala, who tos about to visit England for a sojourn of eight months, will bring with him his wife Florence, known as the Queen of Patiala, who is an English, or rather Irish, lady, and sister of Bir Charles Bryan, a gentleman well known in Indian racing circles as" Mr Doris." The eManaraja, who will make on this occa sion his first visit to Europe, belongs, accord. ing to Sir Robert Lethbridge's Golden Book of India, to the renowned Sidhu.Jat Clan of Sikhs. The title of Maharaja was bestowed on the Patiala Chief in 1810 by the Emperor Akhbar on the recommendation of General Achterlony. During the Nepal War he assisted the English Government, and at its close was rewarded with the addition of the territories ol parts of the Kheonthaland Baghat States. In the Sutlej campaigns of 1815.6 he rendered good service. Daring the Mutiny the present Maharajah's grandfather sent an auxilary force to Delhi, and afforded other aid, in recognition of whic...
A New Fertiliser. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
A New Fertiliser. -0- In tallow-melting establishment+-and there are ascore of them i the city of New York-a large amount of refuse, so called "tank water," is thrown away. It contains a valuable element-gelatine. A patent has lately been granted to Michael A. Golseieff, of this city, for a method of utillaing the above waste product. It consists in partially evaporating the tank water andtheneomhioiag it with quicklime Ia the proportion of one and onethalf parts of lime to each part of water remaining in the refuse after the evaporation. The mixture is then allowed to expand and dry, when it Is redluoed to a powdered state, and is useful as a l,.r.ilizer, containing, as the patentee claims, from 7 to 12 per cent. of ammonia and from 4') to 10 per cent. of lime. If the new process should be found practicable for adoption by the various tallow-melting manufactories, then a waste refuse of today will be mode uaeful, and what is now a nuisance to public health will be abated.-" Scienti...

A Notable Yield of Milk. On the Dirmingham Sewage Farm, Inogltud the herd of 200 dairy cows form a most lins porttnt source of income, notwithstanding the comparatively low price received for the milk in Birmingham.

Manures for Swedes. -o- As the season for sowing turnips and swedes is nois at hand it will be worth while to note some experiments with manures that have been tried in North Wales, Great Britain.

What He Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
What He Wanted. __.Qý At the weekly prayer meeting in the Methodist Episcopal Church at Elwood, the other night, the third person to offer up his tribute was a stranger, who was seated near the door, an whose petition to the throne of grace nearly paralyzed the good people who were present. He prayedas follow: " Lord, Thou knowest I am a stranger here. Thou knoweat I do not live here, but reside in a neighboring town. Thou knowest I have relativej in another town who I am on my way to see. Lord, Thou knowest why I am here instead of there. Thouknowest why I can't be there. Lord, Thou knowest what I want. I want 40 cents. Amen." As the last words were ended, there was a commotion in the church. They all rose up and went down after their pooketbooks, and the man soon had his forty cents and several more. His name could not be learned, hut he lies atLynn, and was on his wayto Center. His funds gave out when he reached here, and so he went to prayer meet ing, and startled the Christian ...
Foundling Hospital in Monte Video. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Foundling Rospital in Monte Video. Apropos of Foundling Hospitals a resi dent of Hawthorn has forwarded an extract from a book published in Paris by aFrench gentleman whose attention was especially attracted by an institution of that nature in Monte Video, the capital of Uraguay, South America. The following is a translation of the extract:-" Among the public build ings I visited, the Foundling Hospital oespecially interested me. It is a very large and commodious establishment, and its management is irreproachable. In endowing a charitable institution of such a special character, the munici pality of this city must have been inspired by the desire to assure a refuge for the many vicumns of a giuilty neglect. the number of abandoned chil dren in Monte Video having pre viously reached a pitch positively terrifying. Outside the building I noticed a riche in which is hid den a carefully padded box. In this the mother. wishing to disen cumbers herself of her child, deposits it, and the i...
Attend to the Minor Branches. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Attend to the Minor Branches. .o- The minor branches of the farm are often of far greater importance than those items which are generally considered to be of moment. "Take care of the pence; the pounds will take care of themselves" is an an adage which em braces a deal of concrete wisdom. The by. products on a farm bring in a deal more money in the aggregate than is obtained Irom the crops of wheat or other grain. The money from butter, eggs, poultry, etc. is coming in all the year round, and every small article that can be produced adds to the pile. Every attention should be paid to means for expediting work, and making it easy to per form. Even in cutting up firewood, the axes and saws should be sharp, so that more than half the time and labor may be saved. The kitchen should be so arranged that no needless toil shall be expended in carrying up wood and water. No product is too trilling if it is pro. duced by the occupation of time that would otherwise be lost, and will serve a us...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. Functions and Composition of Manures. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
ACRICULTURAL COLUMN. PFnctions and Composition of Manures. - -- By DovousG A. Grarorare, in the "Farmer and Stock-breeder." Briefly stated, the following are the functions of manures: A. In many cases manress improve the physical and mechanical condition, and the texture of the soils to which they are applied. Thus, lime, when applied to sour land, deoom poses, and therefore renders harmless the sour organic acids, whose presence in the soil is the cause of the sour or acid condition of the land. When farmyard minure is ap.lied to land the texture and physical condition of the soil Is much improved by the organic matter of which this manure is largely composed. B. In many cases manure acts on plant food alread present in the soil and converts this plant food intosuch a condition that it can be absorbed by the roots of plants. The manorial value of lime is due princpall to the action of this manure on the food of plants already present in the soil C. The most important function of ma...
Sir Andrew Clarke on Hard Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Sir Andrew Clarke on Hard Work. It is well known that the late Sir Andrew Clark had a contemptfor the view that hard workhurtsaman. From the latest of the series of articles reproducing in "The Laneat' instructions given by him in clinical medi cine atthe London Hospital, we make the following interesting quotation, reviving, in his own words, a bit of autobiography, with the substance of which our readers are already familiar. "Labor is the life of life. And especially is it the life of life to the delicate. And when any organ is sick it is then truer than in health that even in sickness and delicacy itis better for the organ to do what work of its own it can, provided it can do it without injury. And I can say to you from a considerableexperience of tuberculous pul monary disease, Iean say with perfect con fidence, that those who have done the best have usually been those who have occupied themselves the most. I never knew my own parents. They both died of phthiols. At the age of ...
Hints on Crinkled Paper Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Hints on Crinkled Paper Work. Crinkled paper certainly makes ideal shades both for small table and the now fashionable standard lamps, and our first engraving shows a pretty but very simply made " luted " shade, suited to the former. To make this, nsepaper of two colors, say green and white. Make the white to do duty as a lining, laying it insidethe green. Cut a long strip of these two, measurig 7in. in width, and 8fft. in length. The portion cut off the length of the entire toll of paper will probably be sufficient for the ruche. Forthe Shade: Vandyke the lower edge of the paper and join it into a round by pasting the two short sides together. Now take apiece of white elastic about half an inch wide, and 61in. long; join the ends so as to makearing. Pleat the upper or straight edge of the paper into a series of small box-pleats, sewing them to the elastic. Arrange as few stitches as possible rather far apart so as not to interfere with the "stretch" ef the elastic. For the Ruche: C...
Useful Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Useful Hints. A small potato with one end sliced off is excellent to rub steel knives with, as the juice olthepotato exudes in just sufficient quantity to keep the bath brick damp and the steel moist during the etouriog process. Sprinkle places infected by an!s with borax, and you will soon be rid of them. For an excellent face lotion, take a fresh cocoanut, grate it and place it in a cloth, squeezing out the milk. Wash the face and hands with the liquid, rubbing the skin briskly, the longer the better, then wipe with a noft cloth. One of the best things to cleanse the scalp thoroughly is to dissolve one half teaspoonful of Californian borax in a quart of water and apply it, rubbinug it in well. Rinse thoroughly in clear water. A dampened cloth is better than a dry one for dusting furniture. A small toy broom is handier for cleaning up dirt around a stove than a large broom.

Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Ladies' Gossip, Some Scotchmen (sa3 s an English writer) are reported to be angry because their country is becoming merged in ,ngland. We no longer say " British;" we say English; we talk of the power of England, the glory of England, the strength of England, as if England was Great Britain. I think that the Scotch hare reason to be aggrieved. The Americans, even, who alwae used to say and write British, are now be.gining to say Englisk. As for me. I plead aty to earelessness in this respect. Is it too fate to arrest this fast epreading habit? What belongs to Eneland is English; whatbelongs to Scotland is Scottish; what belongs to our empire is British. We owe so much to Scotland and the Scts that we must not, even in thought lessness, ignore their share in all that we do. Nonateonal hatred has so completnly died out ans that of English and Soot. The fact might make us hopeful as regards the Irish; but then theScotch never set up a party of their own, bound to vote solid and united ...
A Hen Nursing Kittens. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
A Hen Nursing Kittens,. A mother cat took her three kittens, an hour or two after their birth, and placed them in charge of a certain hen of her acquaintance, which had already a nursery going two or three yards off, under the manger in. a cow shed. It was not stated how the cow ap proved of the new lodgers. "I saw," says the corresondent, " the cat and her progeny lying on the straw directly after their bhlrth, and noticed the hen on her nest. Returning an hour or two later, the cowman showed me kittens under the hen, wondering how they had got there, as nobody else had been in the ehed, and he had not touched them. Till the kittens grew too big, the hen never left them. The rat used to go away foraging, and come down every now and then and throw herself down alongside of the hen and nurse her youn ones, sometimee lying with her head under and her paws almost around the hen's neck. As the kittens got older, it was droll to see their foster.mother following them about and tryieg to ...
