THE MADRE DE ORO. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 24 August 1882

Tim Madiib ]-]'. Ono. A story about which thoro is a fasoination which it is impossible to resist whon you hoar men tell it, is that of tho ' Homo of tho Gold.' Somewhere in Southwestern Now Mexico, in the Sierra Madre, it is said that there is a wonderful valley. Small, inclosed by high rocky walls, and accessible only through a secret passage, which is known to but few, is this extraordinary place. It is about ton acres in extent, has running through it a stream which waters it thoroughly and makes it a perfect paradise, with its exquisite flowers mm uvuuuuui biui:a. 411 ju uiu tuuurxwiua ul birds of tho most brilliant plumage. Running across it is a lodge of pure gold, about thirty feet wide, which glistens in tho sunlight liko a golden belt.

COLOR-MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 24 August 1882

... coLon-Music. . '?-,. It is known that certain peoplo have the power of associating different colors with dif ferent musical notes, and the subject has been recently studied by two Swiss savants, Herren Bleuler and Lehman, of Zurich. Their re sults show that, as a rule, higher notes are accompanied by lighter colors, and lower notes by darker ones. Chords when struck are attended by corresponding color combina tions. For example, a skilled musician who was examined stated that he perceived a distinct color with each key — to wit for O major, grey ; G flat major, reddish-brown ; A major, blue; A minor, lead-color; F sharp major, yellow ; and so on. To many-personB, too, the same piece played by different in struments appears in different colors. Noises, again, are generally accompanied by colors of a grey or brown hue. The authors also found that some minds perceive colors on hearing consonants, vowels, diphthongs, words,' and sentences. Others perceive sounds, on seeing light and...

A GIANT PHOTOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 24 August 1882

A GIANT rUOTOQRAJPII. . : WpnouT doubt the largest photograph in existence is now being exhibited in the art gallery of the American Institute at New York. It covers an area of ten feet in length by eighteen inches in width, and was printed from seven different negatives forming tho parts, but these havo been so deftly joined that the picture seems to havo been taken in one viuw. -Liiu uuDjuub is u panorama 01 cue Centennial Exhibition at Philadelphia in 1870, and tho work is by. Mr. F. Giitekunst, of that city. Duplicates of the picture are selling at high prices, and one has been pre sented to Hor Majesty tho Queen. In this connection wo may note that an improved' means of exhibiting photographs on a screen'as dissolving views, or simple pictures, has been introduced by Mr. W. C. Hughes, of Hoxton, under the somewhat odd namo of the ' Pnrn phengos.' Tho chief novelty consists in adding power to tho light of tho projecting lantern by the uso of four wicks, giving a flame eight inch...

THE THEATRICAL CAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 24 August 1882

THE THEATRICAL OAT. One of tho most sensational scenes in Viotor Nesslers', opera, The Ratcatcher of HamcUn, is that representing tho exodua of rodents from Hamelin, brought about by tho tuneful spells of Singuf tho charmer. While this fantastio personage is singing his incantation thousands upon thousands of rats invade the stage, emerging from doors and windows of the houses composing the 'set,' from crevices in wans, ana irom holes in tho ground. In tho leading Opera Houses of Germany no pains or expense havo been, spared in order to im part a realistio oharacter to this rat opiBode. The mimic rodents are 'made up' as lifelike as map be; they scamper about tho stage as vivaoiously as though they wero really flesh and blood instead of. skin and stuffing. So excellently managed is this partioular ' effeot' at Iho Drosdon opora houso that a fow nights ago, ivpon tho occasion of tho ' Bntcatolior's' first porformancp in that theatre, tho property rats fairly took in tho worthy old ca...

OIL ON THE WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 24 August 1882

Oil. ON TI1E WAVES. It 13 well known that the amcent metaphor about ' pouring oil on troubled waters' to calm them is literally true ; and ships at sea have been saved from foundering by pouring barrels of oil upon the waves around. A striking ex periment of the kind was recently mado at Peterhead in Scotland, in order to allow a fleet of fishing-boats to enter the stormy harbour with their cargoes. By means of a reservoir and pipes leading to the harbour, a stream of oil was discharged upon the water, and spreading in a thin film over its surface, reduced the rough waves to a mere swell, and permitted tho boats to land. Tho ohief action of the oil is probably to diminish the friction between the wind and water, and thus pre vent the formation of waves, whilo tho exist ing motion of the water quickly subsides into a low heaving. Probably tho experiment, after, tho success at Peterhead will bo re peated elsewhere.

Ibousebolb. ? When the Kitchen Club met at Hillside, last week, nearly every member was' suffering from a, cold in some form or other. Sneezing was tho order of the day ; coughing was a frequent accompaniment to the conversation. I gave for the latter a recipe from Mrs. Hen derson's cook hook, that has proved of great use. It was elecampane, one ounce ; spike nard, once ounce ; comfrey root, one ounce ; hoarhouna tops, one ounce : add two qiinrts o£ water, and steep them five hours in a porcelain vessel, adding enough boiling water, as it boils away, to keep the vessel full as at first. At the end of this time, strain';, add a pound of loaf sngar, and boil till reduced to one quart. Give a dessert spoonful before each meal and beforo retiring. Keep in a cool placcy or add a little spirits to prevent spoiling.
