* IMPURITY Of the Blood leads to the worst and most dangerous disorders - known to medical science. Impure blood is the cause of nearly every serious disease in existence, and one of the most painful of these is Rheumatism, which is also caused from the same thing. Rheumatism Is Easily Cured if it is taken in time, by drinking, daily, W^MFJE'S Not long since a well-known professional gentleman in Sydney was cured of Rheumatism by this means, after being in bed for OVER ESI ME YE&KS. This is a remarkable case, and only goes to show that if people suffering from Rheumatism would only try this simple, inexpensive, and efficacious remedy they would soon find relief and permanent cure. The same may be said of Neuralgia & Nervous Debility. If people, instead of applying to Quack Doctors in such cases, would only drink, say, 2 doses a day of WOlLiFE'S SCHMAPPS, they would soon find their nerves braced and their whole system purified and invigorated. The Physician's Cure iTn...

Cardinal Manning and His Portraits. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Cardinal Manning and His Portraits. Legros, in his etching, and Watts, in his oil-painting, well illustrated two of the Car dinal's characteristic* — simplicity and auster ity. These qualities give an interest and a distinction to works which as portraits are otherwise leBs than successes. The clear sur faces in the face rendered by Legros are a ▼acant representation of the furrowed face o£ the Cardinal ; and altogether it is the French abbe of high breeding, and of d placidly Catholic existence from the cradle thnt is shown to us, and not an English leader o£ religious thought at a time when religious thought was in the throes of a revolution. Ia W&tts's portrait there are the Bame conspicu ous absences. One of the leading critics said of it : ' ' Cardinal,' in his red cape and bir etta, his strangely emaciated features loaded with thought, is intensely powerful and path etic, but by no means one of the most agree able of Mr, Watts'B portraits.' The Cardinal cut out the pas...

HOW AND WHEN TO BING-BARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

HOW AND WHEN TO BINS-BABE. Mr. John Hanlon ia Rural Australian says : — There are four different ways of ring barking timber, which I have tried. No. 1 is by makiug a ring round the tree by driving an axe in and pressing the axe downwards without taking out the chip, and is called ring-barking. No. 2 iB called chip-ringing. This is done by taking the cbipB out all round. No. 3 is what is called saD-rinains. This is done by cutting through the sap-wood into the red. No. 4 ii what we call bark ringing : and is done taking a strip of bark of various depths from the tree, and I find from 15in.to 18in. the best. I have all four of these plans used upon my land, and I find that No. 1 is the beBt and cheapest for large timber and No. 4 for small trees, as the trees throw up 'e-s suckers than Nos. 2 and 3 ; but if the country is not bad for throwing up suckers, and you want to kill quickly so as to allow the grass to grow after the first year, then No. 3 is the best, ae it takeB at least th...

The Farm and Garden. BEE QUESTIONS ANSWERED [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

The Farm and Garden. BEE QUESTIONS ANSWERED He is a close observer who understands the habits of the busy little bee to such an extent as to be able to manage bim in harmony with his nature and the laws which he must obey. Bees often perish when tbey might be_ saved by a little knowledge and skill in caring for them. A well-known writer on bees replies to some questions in Gleanings as follows ' What is the best course to pursue with brood-combs that are buckled or bent, bo that some of the cells are not deep enough for breeding ? Is there any way of bringing them straight? The foundation became bent before the bees built up the comb.' . There was neglect on the part of some one in having the foundation bent when it was given to the be6s, or in giving it at such times that the bees did not commence woik on it_at once, before it hod a chr.nce to warp or twist about in tbe hive. It is best to give brood foundation to bees only at Buch times as they are wanting more combs, for unless t...

Out of the hundreds of thousands of Smiths in this country, there are some who are illus trious, antj many who never are, and never j will be, heard of.

A Story of a Penny Stamp. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Story of a Penny Stamp. It was a letter my wife had given me to post earlier in the day, I had put it into my pocket with the best of intentions, explaining that I would get stamps as I went along. And now I took that letter out of my pocket and looked at it. Where was I to buy a stamp at 11 30 p.m. ? True, there was a public-house just opposite. I hate going into public-houses ; but it was so late, and I wasn't likely to meet anyone I knew, so I went in. I had always understood that Ipublic houaes usually keep stamps for the convenience of carclesB correspondents. I ordered a little some thing, and then I said to the lady behind tho bar that I supposed she could sell me a postage stamp The lady said she was awfully sorry ; she had just sold the last one. I smiled drearily, and said it didn't matter. This was not true. That letter was addressed to a lady who should have received it that night.
