Farm and Garden. Must Have [?] Butter. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891

[?] :-- , 'Mnsi3tl*0e -?»££ '£iit(0rsf: ;^ The jmhVa is becoming inora £nd more *xsclin£ as to the quality of butter. The consumers palate has been «?ucatcd to demand something better than that which formerly satisfied it. Eatcryrising people are living better than they t--ed to live, and every day adds to the l^nks of the better livers. Very poor butter is no longer wanted on the table, and the old ; idea that poor butter would answer for j cookisg purposes, if for nethxeg else, is \ giving way rapidly to the very proper eo- j iion that poor butter is a poor article a i any time anywhere. There is little demanc i for butter that is not at leaet of fair quality, and every yeer brioga with it a greattr necessity for raising the standard of our dairy product?. It would seem as if everybody would recognise this fact, and we think everybody does. The difficulty in the way of increasing the supply of firet-clftSB butter, is cot that ail butter-makers do not realise that the consumer want...

At last it struck him that be could not any longer sit like & mummy, abstracted sod speech less, and, baring nothing to do, he got o.it his pipe and dropped down on the door-step, stretched his long limbs almost at her feet, and looked op at her. ' Not tired of ycurEecIusion, yet, Miss Mildred?' he asked. She looked down at him with a little slow smile. * Not in the very least. I am quite content.' QJaite content I He nodded, and. sighed. ' That's a great thing to say. Bat you look it : you look quite happy.' 'lam very happy,' she assented, in a low voice. ?Yes, you look-it, he said, thoughtfully, un consciously gazing at her sweet face, with its soft lepostf ill lips and downcast eyes.

A Startling Abduction. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891

A Startling Abduction. ? ?-??»— ? Dick Broughton, at tha age of fourteen, was as bright a looking English youngster as a mother's eye could desire to rent apon j but— alas for Richard ! — he had only a step mother, and she an unloving one. Hie father, Sir Francis Broughton, s - diploma t?st by profession and training, was at present in Constantinople, and ere long Diok and the present Lady Broughton were to join his Excellency there, This prospective voyage np the Medi terranean was very pleasing to the lad, for his one great desire was again to go to sea. MaBter Dick was thinking of this as he lay awake one morning, just as day was breaking, in bis father's bouse in Msyfair. Little did he then dream that in a few hours he was to find himself afloat, and that much against his will. That day, however, was to alter the complexion of affairs in a manner that neither he nor anyone connected with him oould ever have anticipated. Diok, as a rule, was an early riser, and often enough when ...

The Camel. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891

The Camel. A writer who is giving a very interesting series of Utlcia from Africa, has this to say of tbe disagreeable traits of tbe indispensib:c camel. They bad arrived at the banks of a river near Alcazar, and he had a chance to see how they engineered a camel down a steep bank and forced him to cross the Birnttrn He ears : The victim was brought to the hank and Bteered round until he pointed in the right direction, after which as many stout fellows aB could find room oaught him by the tail, while every one else picktd up whatever was nearest and pounded the beast for all they were worth. If the camel felt like it, he braced his feet and slid down the tank like a woman when she tries to play man and slides on the ice, while the men hanging on to the camel's tail put on tbe brakes and held back until he was safely landed in ths water; after which he w&s driven aoroBs, growling and crumbling -*.U the vcf. » jl ooauj tnimU had been offered, instead of his being helped to mak...

Science Light from the Stars. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891

Science Light from tie Stars It has been fonnd by photometric experi ments n tbe light emitted by the etaTS of different orders cf magnitude that the light of a star of the sixth magnitude amounts to only 100th part of the light of & star of the first magnitude. Hence we conclude (always supposing the star to be ot equal magnitude and splendour) that a star of the sixth mag nitude is more remote than a star of the first . magnitude. Now the bright star Alpha Gen tauri may be considered as typical of a star of the firet magnitude. Combine our know ledge of the relative distances of Alpha Cen tauri and the stars of the sixth magnitude with the conclusions above arrived at, and it follows that if Alpha Centanti were trans ported to 750 times its actual distance, it would still be visible in Herecbel's 20 foot reflector, and consequently there might be perceptible in such an instrument a 'star, the distance of which is 750 time? greater than the actual distance of Alpha Centauri...

Aimost everything under the san has re* -ceived ihe Ww«^^I^ci6rltifi8 sliSay ana~Te«~ 'searches, and now babies are to be taken in bund and a great improvement is to be c-ffected.

A horticulturist of the su burbs of Versailles, in studying the physi olegy of the vegetable kingdom, conceived that the smallness of certain plants— tht violet for example — was owing to an atmos pherio pressure too great for their d' lioate organs.

Preparations for Sealskins. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891

Preparations for Sealskins* There is a popular notion that the seal ?kin as we see it at the furrier's is just as it was taken off the animal. Nothing, however, could be more contrary to fact. Few skins are less attractive than this at first, as the fur is completely covered and hidden by the dull grey-brown and grizzled over-hair. This mask has then to be removed, and this is an operation requiring a very great amount of patience and skill, with a eonBcquent in crease in price. The nnhairing ia effected by warmth and moisture, which softens the roots ot the over-hair and enables it to be polled out, or by shaving the innerside very thin, which cuts tff fee roots of the hair, whioh penetrate deeply, and leaves nntouehed1* those of the fur, which nare very euperfioJBl, Whichever method ia employed, the hair must be taken off uniformly or the fur will never lie smoothly, but always have a rumpled look, which oan never be corrected by any subsequent treatment.
