THE PIANO'S NEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 14 November 1902

J.THE PIANO'S NEEDS. Al few -simple rules on the subjeot of the piano may be of interest and value:-' 7 lBe enreful to have the piano tuned once every three months. 'Never, if it can be prevented, keep a piano in adamp atmosphere,as serious damage may be done to the delicate mechanism;n and rust will acumulate on the strings and other ~etal, portions, thereby canning a dull and, nonesonorous tone. ,Do not load the top of the instrument with lrie-a-brae, nor ,plaee the back too near thea wall; both these faults result in a diminished and weakened tone. " Never light' a big' fire in a room where a piano is plaiced, as the sudden beat generated drives the surface damp inwards, thereby causing many annoyances, suchas the stick ing of notes; a far better plan in to heat the room very gradually. ". It is a curibus fact that one rarely finds a piano up' to standard pitch," except it be a new one.

BOOT JELLY AND SHIRT COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 21 November 1902

BOOT JELLY AND SHIRT COFFEE. Some time ngoa London scientist actually regaled his fricnds with both of the above delicacIes, and all of them pronounced the repast excellent. It sounds incredible,but is notso realy.The jelly was made by first cleaning the boots and then boiling them with soda under a pressure of two atmospheres. The tannic acid of the leather combined with salt, made tan nate of soda, and the gelatine rose to the top, whence it was removed and dried. From this gelatine, with suitable flavouring material, the jelly was readily concocted. Next as to the coffee: thi was snot only made of old shirts, but sweetened with the same material. Thb linen, after thorough washing, was treated with nitric acid, which acting on the lignite (woody subsltmucc) con tained in the fibre, prodluce glucose, or grape sugar. This, roasted, made e.xcellcnt imi-. tatitn coffee, which some of the unroaslted gluco.e nicely sweetencd.

WHERE, INDEED! Many years ago i worthy minister of Con necticut, while on a journey, was passing the' house of a former parishioner. Remember-' ing that the gentleman had recently died, he thought he would stop and condole with the: widow. She met him with a cheerful countenance, and they chatted pleasantly until he, t'hink ing of his purpose in calling, remarked " Madam, it is a painful subject, but you have recently met with a severe loss." Instantly applying her apron to her eyes; uhe said "Oh, yes. doctor, there's no telling how I. feel." " It is indeed a great bereavement you have suffered." " Yes, doctor, very great indeed." " I hope you bear it with submission ?" "I try to ; but oh, doctor, I sometimes feel in my heart, ' Goosey, goosey, gander, whereehall I wandeor I" Doubtless the reverend gentleman kept his face in becoming repose while in the widow's presence, but when he resumed his journey his old horse must have wondered at his master's loud laughter.
