Whisky Superseding Champagne [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 16 April 1898

Whisky Superseding Champagne. During .1S95 the sale ot: champagne iu ?the United -States, fell off -10 per cent,, and the sales so far in IS!)(j indicate «i: greater falling-en'. Of course there is a re.-iisou for jtliif. The dealers iu cham pagne say that it is the hard times. They are unable to point, though, to a falliug-off in tlie sale of 'other luxuries. They are selling quite -as many high grade cigars 'and' fancy* groceries as ever. The' true reason for the fjilling off in the sale of champagne is Hint so ciety h;is taken to drinking Scotch whis ky aud ekHJa where, fornierly1, it never thought of drinking anything .hut cham pagne.

The Madmen of Rotten Row.

One day. while he and his wife were to gether iu the How, the latter look ad vantage of Ihe crowd to slip away from him, and probably elope .with some other man. The disconsolate aud de mented husband, however, merely sup posed that the lady had lost Jiini. and for many years he haunted the Itow with thi- 'hope that he might find her. His special delusion- was that his wife would only be able to recognise him by the patleii «-f his trousers, so he partly covered those with the bandana hand kerchief to prevent the colour fading by exposure. l-\)r...

As a general rule, people are not nearly particular enough about tills, and per haps a few hints may not be quite use Jess. It is quite impossible to make the in door air as pure as that which you breathe outside whatever you may do ; but it is possible to secure very much purer air in your rooms than that very often breathed, although you may about other matters l-e most careful and par ticular to have cleanliness at any cost. ? Bronchitis and consumption are often caused by breathing bad air.
