A fool once more. " For ten years my wife was confined to ,her bed with such a complication of all minets that that no doctor could tell what was the matter or cure her, and I used up a small fortune in humbuging staff.. Six menths ago I saw a U. S flag, with Dr. Soule's American Hop hitters on it, and I thought I would be a fool once more. I tried it, but my folly proved to be wisdom.

The instrument is 14jin. long, 7 in. wide, din. high, and weighs i81b. It can 1m placed uponll n ordinary table.

CHASING SLAVE DHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

CHASING SLAVE DHOWS. Letters received recently from Aden contain particulars of an exciting chase after slave dhows which occurred a few weeks since on the East Indies station. On the 15th of last month, while on a cruise, Her Majesty's ship Osprey sighted Mocha,. and boarded a small dhow that had been sent from Assab Bay by the Italians to Mocha for fruit. She then stood up the coast to the north until about nine o clock at night, when she turned round and came down slowly at a distance of about 'eight miles from the land. At day. break on the following (Sunday) morning the Osprey sighted three dhows ahead, and im mediately went in pursuit of them. On getting within range a gun was fired from the sloop as a signal to the dhows to stop and submit to examination. No notice, however, was taken of this; but the dhows, instead, crowded on more sail, and endeavoured to escape. A well aimed shot at the must of the largest of the three dhows speedily brought her up, but by this time the ot...

PRIMITIVE AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

PRIMITIVE AGRICULTURE. In a recent report on the agriculture of the Mexican Stato of Vera Cruz, the British Consul describes the primitive manner in which maize is cultivated in the Minatitean district, where three crops are raised annually, but never on the same land. No ploughing is done; one oman makes with ia pointed stick a series of lines of holes about two feet apart; another man follows, dropping two or three grains into each hole, and the rain is left to till the holes in. The harvest is calculated at a hundred times the weight of the need, and is gathered in 16 weeks after the planting. No manuring is done, except when the land is first cleared, and then the Oahes of the burnt under wood, rank grass, and stumpslaro nsed aI fer tilizers.

REFRESHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

REFPRESHMENTS. All receptions, large andsmall (says a writer in The Queen) are designated nowadays " at homes." A sandwich supper is really quite sufficient for a "small At Home; especmally for those people who are in the habit o receiving their friends pretty frequently. But thou the sandwiches ought to be many and good. As regards quantity, an average of four per head, and a few over, is a safe plan ; but there is a good deal to be said on the score of quality. The first consideration is the bread. A tin loaf (double size) is the best of ordinary bread; but some bakers make a Vienna sandwich soaf, which is close, firm, and yet moist. Of course, it must be used stale. Thena sandwich ought to be neither too small nor too big; neither coarsely large nor ridiculously small. A triangle of 21in. is a nice size. Butter the bread carefully with the best fresh butter, if in cold weather slightly warming it. Press the sand wich well together with the hand before divid ing it. When all are r...

Rider Haggard. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

P.ider Haggard. Some interesting facts respecting the author of " King Solomon's Mines" are published in a recent review. In 1882 Mr. Rider Haggard wrote " Cetowayo and his White Neighbours," over which he lost £60. The sight of a fair face. in a church at Norwood gave, him, he says, an inspiration for "Dawn." The pub. lishers regarded his first novel with disfavour, undthe rewriting it against time very nearly cost him his [eyesight. It was produced at last,, and his profits amounted to ten pounds.. Encouraged. by a very favourable review in the imes, he set to.work on the " Witch's Head," and this time' he realised no less than fifty pounds. In 1885 he was called to the bar, commenced his legal career in the Probate and Divorce Court, and wrote "King Solomon's Mines" in the leisure evenings of bis first term. He woke up one morning to find himself famous, and this time he very fortunately retained a royalty of 10 per cent. "She," "Jess," and "Allan Quatermain" . were each phenomen...

'They have no appreciation of that class of English women whose influence is far more important and beneficial to society than is the corresponding class in France. But there is a social factor in. English politics, unattainable by any other:nation, and possibly ony under just such a form of government, and with such a ruler as Queen Victoria has proved herself to be.

TOM KING. (DAILY. NEWS.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

TOM -IING. (DAILYr cEaws.) The death of the, puigilistic, ex-champion, Tom King, will recall to the minds of many the curious revival of interest in the prize ring which burst upon us to the extent of a public scandal rather more than a quarter of a century ago. Happily the excitement which resulted. in the disgraceful scenes at London Bridge railway station while the special train, in the dark small hours of a December morning in 1863, was preparing to start for its secreti destination, were the last of their kind;.at all events, no subse quent struggle for the championship has rwn Cabinet Ministers, imperfectly.dis guised .in mufflers and high-collared top coats, into-'contact .with the _scum a:.nd ruffilanism of London, or witnessed so open and shameless a connivance on the partof the police in thoe reparations for an unlawful assembly.

CURIOSITIES OF AUCTION SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

COURIOSITIES OF AUCTAION SALES. In a large room of dingy appearance and stuffy atmosphere is a strangely mixed assembly. ` eat?d round ai horseshoe table are men and women, whose keen glance and rapid fingering of goods,, no less than their rusty black, bespeak the.regular at tendants at auctions. Behind them stand others of the same - class - brokers, dealers in second-hand articles, and small shopkeepers. On the fringe of this business crowd hang a few well-dressed people, '.who have dropped in .out of curiosity, or with a desire to purchase some thing that has" attracted their attention in the catalogue. In theirimmediate neigh bourhood hover those ubiquitous and obtru sive individuals called commission agents, the terror of unprotected ladies. They are, for the most part, Jews. Several of them meet you at the door and hold out catalogues for your acceptance. In'your innocence you take one, and'thank the donor, who, to your surprise, follows and stationis himself at your ,olbow. ...

MAJOR BARTTLELOT. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

MAJOR BARTTLELOT. In the course of an interview which the Paris correspondent of the Daily ncws has had with M. do Brazza, the Governor of the French Congo, he said:-" I don't think that the very sweeping statements of that interpreter Assas Farran will ever tell in the least against the character of either Major Barttolot or Mr. Jeuneson. I don't know this Assail Farran personall-, but he is a Syrian and of a class in whom place the slenderest confidence. They are, as at rule, an arrogant, offensive lot, with very little breeding, and even less probity. It is one of our misfortunes to have to employ a certain class of Syrian interpreo tors; as they give themselves out to be, for want of more respectable and intelligent men. Now about Major Burttelot's bodyguard. The men who accompanied him on his gallant venture to relieve Stuledcy are the most treacherous, faithless creatures in the whole country, utterly devoid of manly feeling and courage.
