MUSKETS TEN FEET LONG. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
MUSKET3 TEN FEET LONG. Gen. F, C. Ainswortb, chief of the record and pension division of the U. S. A. army, is in receipt of several interesting relics from friends in the Philippines and China, comprising a collection of arms of different varieties, modern and archaic, used by the Chinese. In the collection are two jlnials, which look a good deal like overgrown muskets. They are too heavy for soldiers to carry about the field; and are usually rested upon a parapet. One of these weapons is more than ten feet long, with an iron barrel of one-inch calibre. Both guus are in good working order, and Gen. Ainswortb has had them burmsh*d and added t- the ornaments of his office in the war department.

DYED COFFEE BEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
DTED COFFEE BEAJJS. In Germany it is permissible to adul terate coffae. A wholesale grocer was recently tried in Himburg, the charge against him being that be had adulterated a large quantity of Brazilian coffee.; with the object of selling ic as Porto Biuo coffee. His counsel admitted that be had caaugeu tne original colour oi in« oouee, but pointed out that he had made the change before the coffee was roasted, and and as the experts who had been sum moned expressed tbe opinion tbat it was perfectly lawful to adulterate beans, though entirely unlawful to adulterate roasted coffee, the court promptly ordered a verdict of not guilty. In this case the adulteration consisted in making the beans of a greenish blue colour, and in pressing finq flour between the clefts. The roey hue which char acterizes Brazilian coffee was thus ob literated. Acoording to experts, beans of coffee have been artificially coloured in Ham burg for the last 40 yearB, and if the practice it to be stopped, thoug...

C2rgo. (Brom Our Correspondent.) On Friday last a ball was held in Mr! BulkeW's Assembly Hull in aid of the local Roman CMholie Church, aud with out doubt was a huge success. About 7 o couples attended, aud as a consequence tho tloor space was severely tased. Messrs Logan mid Frize acted as Ms.C. and experienced much ditUeulty in ar ranging tho dancers to, ns far as possible, minimise the chanccs of collision. Some of the neighboring towns woro well icpresented, especially Canowindra. Messrs. Tobin, Clarke, Cialvin, Murray, and Graham, of tlie Canowindra Brass Band Supplied the musi :, and acquitted themselves most -creditably. A sump-j tuous supper was provided by (ha ladies of (lie town and district, and too iiiuoh ?credit cannot bo given tho ladies who waited on the tables for the ablo manner in which they managed and atten ded to the requirements of the large gathering. I am told that the church will benefit to the extent of £18, aud the only fault your correspondent has to find...
Domestic Life. HOW TO MAKE A MAN HAPPY [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
Domestic Life. HOW TO MAKE A. MAN HAPPY jfljKHBElE are ineix who are born This is not tbeir fault ; they can't help it — although they know how much they irritate their wives by following them about the house with a duster i n one hand end a broom In the oth-;r. But tho average healthy normal man is a comrortaoie eniiueas, un tidy eoul, whose ideas .of a tidy room end where those of a woman begin. So it happens that what in apple pie order to the eye of a man repre sents a heart-broakiDg chaos to the eye of a woman — a etate of things which is apt to cause a deal of small trouble in the home, more especially to the man. No woman (except she be the de voted mother of a large family pt boys) can gaze with equanimity upon the traces of mankind in her rooms. sne is apt to oecome lrncaoie when, entering a room which she may have tidied up ten minutes be fore, she finds a cap carelessly thrown in the armchair, a pipe spilling its ashes on the table-cover, whilst traces of tobacco-ash in h...

Ways of Living. SMUGGLING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
Ways of Living. SMUGGLING. V,N England, even under a system of 9^ free trade, tjero are etill plenty of TC people who think it worth while to liek pains and penalties by surrepti tious attempts to introduce contraband goods, says a writer in the London Express. How much greater then must the temptation be in France, where almost every necessity of life is liable to heavy duties, not only on entering the country, but even when passing from one commune to another. At the gates of every town and the approach of every hamlet you find a small guard house, labelled ' Octroi,' from which a posse of officials issues to scruti nise every one who passes in. The iormaunes are increasingly severe according to the apparent poverty of the p rson. A carriage or cab may go in almost unchallenged, while peasants' carts are ransacked. A load of sand or hay will be probed with a long steel staff ; and any individual who arouBes suspicion is liable to be searched. In spite of intense vigilance, however...
Traveller. LEGHORN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
Traveller. — LEGHORN. £T is as a sea-bathing plice that Leg as horn chiefly attracts the world The ag bathing at Leghorn is a veritable luxury. There are a number of bathing establishments built out into the sea, each forming a specie of many-armsd pier. The establishments are covered with spreading canvaa, affording cool shelter from the fiercest sun, while the flapping of the canvas in the breeze acts »s an unobtrusive punkah. The briehtlv dressed crowd begins to troop on to the Bathe at nine o'clock in the morning. There is no twopenny fee as on an Eng lish pier; admission is freo on all the Baths along the sea front; but it is wonderful to note with what good sense and good faEte the different classes of society confine themselves each to~its own particular establishment. The bathing is | done out of baraccas ; each baracca is a square-shaped canvas tent of g odly dimension?, built ont into the sea on a wooden frame- work. Inside the baracca ie a stone platform with chairs, a fi...
CARRAWAY BONES, THE UNDERTAKER [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
CAERAWAY BONES, THE UNDER TAKER Undertakers get very calle-u^ and matter-of-fact over their gloomy duti-e. Very rich (says ? The Leeds Saturday Journal ') iB the story told of the Udding ton man in the time of an epidemic which was causing a Urge mortality. ' Ie it not a very sad business this P' re marked the minister. ?Ay,' was the peculiarly professional repiy, - it is mar. I'm gey eair pitten* aboot. I'm rinnin' short o' wood.' Sorrowing relatives often make un expected remarks. A minister had onee conducted a service, and was standing at the dour with tho heartbroken widow while the coffin was being shouldered down the stair. There was considerable bumping on the way. and tae clergyman made a sympathising remark to the widow, whose feelings were being thus outraged by the' spectacle. Her reply was a surprise to him : — ' I declare to gaidnesp,' Ehe exclaimed, empnai icauy, 'Die inia is tne worst con structs hoose for carryin' oot a corp I | e 'er sa w.'

MONUMENTS TO MARTYRS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
MONUMENTS TO MARTYBS. No city in the world has so many statueH and monuments as PaHs, and. every day sees a new project for a new statue or bust. It is curious to note in this connection that a large proportion of the famous men honoured in this way came to their end by violence ia some | scaffold, and a stroll through the Paris streets may give ihe philosopher food for reflection on tbe mutability of human judgment. Danton and Lavoisier were guillotined, Jeanne d'Arc and Etienne Delet were burned at the stake, Hanry iV. was murdered. Etienne Marcel was also assassinated. Marshal Ney was shot, Condorcet committed suicide to escape the scaffold, and these are only a tithe of those that might be mentioned. A list of Paris statues reads much like tha New gate Calender.
LETTERS OUT OF LEATHER BAG. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
LETTERS OUT OF LEATHER BAG. Presuming the letters are painted upon he bag, the best plan will be to remove tbe paint with a solvent, such as turps or benzine; or chloroform will soften still quicker, and the paint may then be scraped off with a penknife or wbiped off wi-h a sponee. If tliese fluids are ob jected to, a strong solution of soda water will also remove the letters, but not quite bo quietly. The leather will not be the least affected, but if the bag is black or brown a coating of leather varnish of mther of these colours inuat be afterwards applied to hide the place where the letters were.

STOVE-REFRIGERATOR. Heat and cold in tho same apparatus is the design of a new device patented by a woman. It resembles a luncheon hamper and is ten by ten inches at tbe side and seven and one-half inches high. By use of unique fuel, burning without Samo, or smoke, food in the upper sections is kept warm, while the lower part of the arrangement acts as ;a refrigerator, it is claimed, and keeps drinkables cold.
QUINSY [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 22 August 1902
QUINSY Is a tiresome and painful complaint. The temperature is often , very high, and the pain and discomfort great, as an abscess forms on the tonsil. This, if left to itself in time bursts, when the tem perature falls and the pain iB relieved. Fomentations as hot as can be borno, changed every two hours, are of great Keep the child in bed, and feed with hot milk, beef-tea, beef-juice, 'and strong broth.
