Eating in Olden Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

Eating in Olden Times. Few references can be found as to the manner in which a meal was served and eaten during the Dark Ages. As near as we can learn, the soup was put in a big bowl with ears, called a " porringer." There was seldom a spoon for each per- son. Those who had spoons dipped   them into the porringer, and the liquid was carried directly to each mouth. Those who were without spoons drank the soup from the porringer, holding it by one of the ears,, or else borrowed a spoon of their neighbour. The meats were placed in a large vessel in the corner of the table. Each person pre- sent at the meal picked out with his fingers such bits as he desired. One or two knives answered for half-a-dozen guests. Those who were without knives borrowed from those who had one. As a rule, the guests, at table used their own knives. There is no evidence that nap- kins were supplied to guests at this period. In short, people ate like beasts, and the method still obtains in some cir...

A Composer's Despair. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

A Composer's Despair. A well-known composer, who is busily engaged on the score of an opera for a West End theatre in London, has been obliged, during the recent hot weather, to work with the windows of his study open. This fact was taken advantage of by his neighbour—a lady, an accom- plished musician with a very quick and retentive ear—to play upon him a harm- less practical joke. One morning he completed and tried over a new march, and the lady on the same afternoon seated herself at her grand piano, opened her windows, and rolled forth the air fortissimo. The composer rushed dis- tractedly into his garden to find his wife, and, tearing his hair in anguish, cried out : " My dear, I give it up. I thought I had composed an original tune, but it must be a delusion, for my ' Grand March'—my chef d'oeuvre, as I thought it-—is only a reminiscence, and is already the property of some music publisher."

When Doctors Disagree. Commissions on Leprosy. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

When Doctors Disagree. Commissions on Leprosy. When doctors differ, we all know that   patients die ; but what dire results follow when two commissions differ ? A commission has been investigating leprosy in India, and has decisively stated as its opinion that leprosy is not a contagious disease. In India, there- fore, lepers are treated 0n that basis. Almost at the same time, however, a commission appointed by the Cape of   Good Hope Government also made its report ; and the conclusion it has come to is that leprosy is a contagious di- sease. In South Africa, therefore, lepers are treated accordingly, and segregation is resorted to as far as possible. It will be strange if it should be left, to Japan to settle the point upon which British experts are so much at variance.. Dr. Kitasato, who is not only one of the ablest scientists of Japan but is one who can hold his position against all competitors, n0 matter what nation they belong to is at present engage...

Famine at Klondyke. Official Information of the Danger. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

Famine at Klondyke. Official Information of the Danger. OFFICIAL information of the danger of starvation at Dawson, in the Klonkyke, reached San Francisco on December 1. It came in a letter from Captain Han- sen, manager of the Alaska Commer- cial Company on the Yukon (says the New York Herald). The letter was dated October 16, after the unexpected arrival of the steamers Weare and Bella at Dawson, and his most startling, statement was that the Weare had only 68 tons of supplies on board,, instead of 180 tons as had been stated, and that the Bella carried only 78 tons. Cap- tain Hansen refrains from predictions,   but his statements concerning the food supply on hand, the number of persons dependent thereon, the very scant ad- ditions received by the two last steam- ers, and the exodus of people to places where food may be obtained, all point to famine during: the winter His state ment is accepted as the most trust- worthy that has come from Dawson, and confirms the new...

The Secret of England's Greatness. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

The Secret of England's Greatness. So many myths (says the Loverpool   Mercury) have been ruthlessly des- troyed by the scientific historian that   when a story it discovered which has an authentic basis it deserves to be treasured, and the evidence of its truth kept in remembrance. An in- stance in point is the anecdote which tells how the Queen presented a bible to an African chief, with the remark that it was "the secret of England's greatness." This incident has done yeoman's service in many a pulpit, and on scores of platforms. Most of us have seen on cottage walls pictures (usually made in Germany) in which   a dusky savage receives with glisten-   ing eyes the sacred volume from the   hands of Her Majesty. It is a com- fort to find that we have not all been deceived. The story is not absolutely truo in its popular form, or as repre- sented by the pictures. The Queen did not take a Bible from a table and hand it ...

Some Statistics. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

Some Statistics. The New South Wales "Statistical Register for 1986 and previous years,     compiled from official returns by Mr.s T. A. Coghlan, Government Statisti- cian, has been published in book form, and it contains a vast amount of infor- mation, a great proportion of it being of especial interest to the commercial community. In part VI, dealing with manufactories and works, it is stated       that the statistical returns for the year 1896 had been compiled on a new basis, in order to secure uniformity with Victoria. Formerly, an establishment   where no machinery is used was in-     cluded in the returns if at least five hands were employed therein ; but the minimum number of hands accepted in such factories has now been reduced to four. Also milliners, dressmakers, and tailors, not hitherto enumerated, are now included ; but all blacksmiths not coming under any specific h...

News by the American Mail. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

News by the American Mail. Pittsburg, December 1.—The big- gest combination of river coal interests ever attempted promises to be effected before the new year. The scheme pro- poses the organisation of one company   with a capitalisation of 11,000,000dol.   It is to be a trust, controlling the river coal interests from Lock No. 5 on   the Monongahelr River to New Or-   leans.

Labouohere and Hess. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898

Labouchere and Hess. The duel between Mr. Henry Hess, of the African Critic, and Mr. La-   bouchere, M.P., is, writing on No- vember 20th, being fought out with great bitterness on both sides. Mr. Labouchere made in Truth a general, although not very specific, denial of the charges against him, it appeared as if the matter was likely to drop without any very serious damage being done by of to either of the combatants. The next move on the part of Mr.     Labouchere, who published a letter written by Hess which contained some remarkable admissions Mr. Hess com- menced proceedings against Mr. La bouchere, for libel, and stated that the letter published by him had formed the basis of a criminal trial at Johan- nesburgh, which resulted in Hess be- ing triumphantly acquitted. Subse-     quently he announced that he had obtained possession of a number of   letters written by Mr. Labouchere, to   the...

Fitz-Gerald Trophy Competition. 2nd Muswellbkook .y. Muscle Cheek The first match of the season be tween 2nd Muswellbrook and Muscle and Sandy Creeks combined was played at Muscle Creek .on Saturday afterqoon, and resulted in a win for the combined team on the first in nings by 39 runs. The Muswellbrook men, some of whom were a bit late in arriving on the ground, went first to the wickets; but; failed—(whether due to funk, or to the excellence of the baling, deponent sayeth not)—to make any stand, und the total at the fall of the 10th wicket was only 3.1. The countrymen then took a turn with the bat, and some good cleon hitting was done by Harrison, whilsi Smith played steadily; but the others did not give much trouble, the innings closing for a tqtal of 70 runs.
