Ivery Billiard Balls Stained With Blood. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
Ivory Billiard Balls Stained With Blood. The globe of ivory which is knocked about a table in a game of billiards costs, if of good quality, at least $10. This rep resents its cost in money. There is, however, a far more important and for midable element in the price which has been paid for it. The billiard ball of pure ivory represents as it lies white and glistening upon the cloth an expend iture of human lifeblood as well as of money. Elephants' tusks are brought down to the African coasts by caravans general ly in charge of Arabs, which have been trading in theinterior. Very often they have picked up slaves as well as ivory. But this phase of the matter may be left out of the account. It is estimated that every large caravan bringing ivory to the coast has cost more than 160 human lives through fights and murders in the course of the expedition. Thirty more men are likely to have suc cumbed to fevers or other diseases and the fatigues of the march. The hunting of the elephants a...
FRIGHTENED TO DEATH. There are several well authenticated [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
FRIGHTENED TO DEATH. There are several well authenticated orawled while he was niaii asleep. he was sure that a cobra had bitten him, and it was too much for his nerves and he died. Frederick I. of Prussia was killed by fear. His wife was insane, and one day she escaped from her keeper and, 4abbling her clothes with blood, rushed upon her hus band while he was dLzing in his chair. King Frederic imagined her to be the white lady whose ghost was believed to invariably appear whenever the death of a member of the royal family was to occur, and he was thrown into a fever and died in six weeks. But perhaps the most remarkable death from fear ývas that of the Dutch painter, Pentman, who lived in the seventeenth century. Qne day lie went into a room full of anatomical subjects to sketch some teath heads and skelet ns for a picture he in tended to paint. The weather was very sultry, and while sketching he fell asleep. He was aroused by bones dancing around him, and the skeletons, suspended ...
Punishment In Persia. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
Punishment In Persia. Among the Persians the usual mode of punishmentisthe ba indoi-from ?v-whic? men-of the highest rank are not exempt. It is inflicted with very great severity, frequently so as to render the sufferer almost a cripple for life. The victim is thrown upon his face, each foot is passed through a loop of strong cord attached to a pole, which is raised horizontally by men, who, twisting it round, tighten the ropes and render the feet immovable. Two executioners then strike the sole al ternately with switches of the pomegran ite tree well steeped in water to render them supple. A store of these switches is generally ready for use in the pond which adjoins the courtyards of the houses of the great. The punishment frequently lasts for an hour or until the unfortunate victim faints from pain. Philadelphia Ledger.

A Grease Filter For Boilers. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
A Grease Filter For Boilers. A filter for removing grease, which often passes into boilers with the feed water, consists of a metallio chamber or filter box in which are a series of gratings, and between these gratings are placed layers of wire gauze and flannel of a sp o.al exture, which forms the filtering me ium. '-The tfe~ weter from the donkey pump enters the filter box fTou? one side@ paves upward through he ilter plj.g?. and thence out to the boiler, the sean pasing away through another o?tlet. y this means it is found that all grease and greasy matter, as well as other im purities, are arrested by the filter cloths, whioh can be readly taken out for clean oing ceno al. The filter is equally ap pioabIr. oI land 'an mradlr boilers. WwYork Telegram.
THE LADIES' COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
THE LADIES': COLUMN The small v6tements that are being turned out just now -are very pretty. A novel phlerine is made with three flounces of black silk muslin of equal depth, each one bordered with a band of white silk muslin a little over two inches wide, veiled with fine black lace of the same width. A new material, and one that has every indication of lasting popularity, is called silk homespun. It is made of pure silk thrown up conspicuously upon a woollen ground. It makes a rather rough-surfaced fabric of great strength and durability. Redingote. dresses are increasing in vogue, the heavy satins and brocades being mostly used. Large square pockets, gaunt letcuiffs, Directorie revers,and tremendous sleeves are the features of the redingote gown, which is in reality a princess, open ing in front over a petticoat of a contrast ing colour. Black duchesse satin with a petticoat of gold overlaid with black lace or heliotrope with white, are the combina tions just now in favour with P...
JEWISH WIT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
JEWISH WIT. A striking commentary was recently made by a Russian Jew on the judicial corruption which stains his country. He passed the law courts in one of the cities of the empire, and noticed a fine statue placed in front of the building. " Whom does this statue represent P" he enquired of a passer-by. ' WLy, Justice, of cour e 1' " How sad," exclaims the Jew, heaving a profound sigh, " that Justice should be relegated to the outside of the e 'ifice and be 'ltogether excluded from ad mission within !" " Death is the best physician," said a witling to his medical attendLnt, who had been somewhat too assiduous in his pro fe'sional visits. "Why so ?" asked the doctor.

UNHAPPY MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
UNHAPPY MARRIAGES. If doctors were consulted more, and ministers less, there would not be so many unhappy marriages. Although health is the greatest factor in dumestic happiness and comfort, we fear it is very rarely taken into account to the extent it shou.d be. If young women were more careful in satifying themselves as to the health of the man they propose accepting as their hus band there would not be so much silently endured misery as there is. ow many unhappy marriages are not heard of, be cause " for the sake of the children " they are got spoken of! If girls were taught more carefully how to take care of them selves, if mere science is given them, and if doctors will be more honest--more candid, that is--in dealing with them both before and after marriage, unhappy mar riages may not be entirely obviated, but they will be greatly reduced in fnmber.

HELPING MATTERS ALONG. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
HELPING MAT 'ERS ALONG. The young man had been courting the small boy's sister for a long time, but could get no defiaite answers to his pro posals, and the small boy thought it was high time f 'r matters to come to a clime x One evening the young man had urged his suit more ardently than ever, and had again been discouraged. The small boy, hiding behind the screen, could tand it no longer, and as the lover asked for the hundredth time, " Mary, dear, will you marry me ?" the boy called out in exact imitation of his sister's voice : " Yes, I will." The sister started and stared in great perplexity, and It was all over. The young man had improved his opp .rtunity, sealed his pro p sal, and Mary could get no chance to object. A chuckle caused them to turn dismayed, and there stood the small boy enjoying the scene. "There," said he, "that might have been done long ago," and then he discreetly vanished.

DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
DIET. As a universal rule in health, and, with very rare exceptions, in disease, that food is best which the appetite craves or the taste relishes. Persons rarely err in the quality of food eaten. Nature's instincts are the wisest regulators in this respect. The great sources of mischief from eating are three :--quantity, frequency, rapidity; and from these come the horrible d.spep sias which make of human life a burden, a torture, a living death. By eating fast, the stomach, like a bottle being filled through a funnel, is full and overflowing before we know it. But the most unportant reason is, the food is swallowed before time has been allowed to divide it in sufficiently small pieces with the teeth; for, like ice in a tumbler of water, the smaller the bits are the sooner are they dissolved. It has been seen with the naked eye that if solid food is cut up in pieces small as half a pea, it digests almost as soon without being chawed at all as if it had been well masticated. it requ...
FRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
FRYING. Badly-fried food is not only very un inviting, but it is decidedly unwholesome, and productive of indigestion. Nothing is easier than to fry well if these two rules are observed, viz.: Have the fat hot enough, and have plenty of it. In experienced cooks are apt to think it is ready as soon as it bubbles, but this is a mistake. It should be smoking hot. 1 degree less of heat will cause your potatoes to wilt, and brown only on one side and fish to be only flecked with brown, whil, the skin will be gelatinous and the flesh greasy. A. good test whether the fat is hot enough is to drop a small square of bread into it. If the bread crisps and browns at once, put in your fish or cutlets, but if it does not brown in a minute or two, it is not hot enough. Let the article to be fried be wiped perfectly dry, and have enough fat to cover it well. For breaded cutlets, chop?, etc., have a mixture of two beaten eggs, a dessert spoon of oil, and one of water. HIve ready some finely-grated b...
MY DEAR OLD FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
MY DEAR OLD FR iENDii I had just come out of the postoffice, when I caught sight of a face that I seemed familiar to me. It was that, of a man of about my own age, with a bronzed features and a somewhat attenu ated figure. As I was trying to recall when and a where I had seen him before our eyes t met, I immediately perceived that our v recognition had been mutual, for he came toward me with a frank expression of pleasure and held out his hand, say- f ing " Halloa, old fellow, who'd havel thought of seeing you here ?" . I don't know why he said this, and of course I don't attempt to defend it ; f but it is a style of address affected by I some men who are as profoundly t astounded if they meet you in a res- B taurant as if they had run across you in 9 the mines of Siberia. I felt a little a annoyed at his want of originality ;. however, I smiled pleasantly, and said, as I shook hands- " Well, if you come to that, old fel- C low, who'd have thought of seeing you here ?" We stood oppo...
ENTIRELY DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
ENTIRELY DIFFERENT. Charles Frederick Dillingham had a cheque which he wished to exchange for its face value in legal tender. He tripped gayly with the precious paper to the Un imited Trust and Deposit Company's bank. Mr Dillingham had never dealt with this bank, but he was sure he knew the cashier well enough to get the money without the slightest trouble, as he had enjoyed a very agreeable interview with himless than forty-eight hours before. So he walked up to the window, said " Good. morning " pleasantly to the owner of the head which appeared at the opening, and handed in his cheque with the utmost con fidence and said- "I'd like cash for that, Mr Munn. Let ze have it in fives, please:" Mr lMann took the paper, read it care fuily, saw that the indorsement on the back corresponded to the name of the payee on the front, examined it upside down and right side up, scrutinized the edges and held it up to the light to see the water-mark. Then he handed it back with the observation " ...
A NEW NOVEL. "The Story of Andrew Fairfax." [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893
A NEW NOVEL. " The Story of Andrew Fairfax." BY JOSEPH HOCKING. This romance of English rural life has now appeared in book form, and may be obtained through the local book sellers from Messrs Ward, Locke and Bowden, Mel bourne. The book is one of peculiar interest to country readers, because its hero is a country youth who, having received a good education in a university town, returns to the place of his birth, and while working as a farm servant, devotes himself to im proving the condition of the farm laborer, whose life is a struggle for bread, and his old age too often a miserable ending in the loveless poorhouse. The task is mane more difficult by the social position of Andrew, whose moral and intellectual status, so unlike those of his class, are a continual puzzle to those above him. The estate of Ashwater, upon one of whose farms he is working, has recently been purchased by a wealthy young lady (MLisa Mavis Lezant) of London, who leaves the entire management to her land st...
