TO TAKE OUT MILK AND COFFEE STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 21 September 1882
TO TAKi: OUI1 JIILK AND COltUC STAINS. . Tm:sp stains are veiy dillicnlt to lemovc, esijecially from light coloured and, finely finished goods. From woollen and mixed fabrics they nre taken out by moistening them with a mixture of ono part glycoiine, nine paits water, and one-half part aqua ammonia. This mixtuie is applied to the goods by means of a biush, and allowed to lemain for twelve houis (occasionally lenewing the moistening). After this time the stained pieces are pressed between cloth, and then lubbed with n clean lag. Drying, and, if possible, a little steam ing, is generally sufllciont to thoroughly remove the 'stains. Stains on silk gar ments which .are dyed with delicate colours, or 'finely finished, are moro difficult to ichiovc. In this case, five paits glycoiino are mixed with five parts water, and one quarter part of ammonia added. Before using this iriixturc it should be tried on some part of the garments whore it . cannot bo noticed, in order to see if tho mixture...

THE RACE BETWEEN VESTS AND SCARVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 21 September 1882
THIS HACK IIETW1SKN VKSTS AND KCAUVKH. Tin: giadual disappearance of men's nock wear is one of the most singulm circum stances of modern times. Not many years ago some philosopher discovered that tho piactico among men of putting from tlneo to seven shiits a week into the wash was loduoing multitudes to beggary, and keeping otheis in comparative indigence, and started a much needed movement. toward economy in this 10 spoct by inventing the ' flat seaif.' This aiticlc was at first about ten inche? in length, by six in width, and comfortably filled up tho space left open by. oven the lowost cut vests. Appreciating tho fact that the purchase of such piodigious structures inflicted quifo as onerous a burden upon necessitous young men as tho rapacity of washerwomen had afoictimedonc, tho humane inventor began to reduce the size of them, the result being, that tho human vest, following a familiar law of naliiie, be gan to add more buttons to itself, and to leave, year by year, less space ...

If wo aro to honour gray hairs, in it unreasonable to ask that ago shall mako itself to bo honoured? If porsonal prefor anccs must at all times be subordinated to tho claims of age, may wo not insist that ago shall at least so conduct itself as to entitle it to our respectful consideration? Much pity is asked of us for those burdened with Hie in firmities pf years, and it is represented as our duty to patiently hoar with thequoiulousncis, tho complainings and unreasonableness of those advanced in life. But wh) is it that tho old are for tho most part a compound of physical ill-being and mental decay? Of how many of tho aged can it be truly said that they are in no wise to blam...

Science. CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 28 September 1882
Science. CONSUMPTION. By Pitor. Tyndaltj. On the 21th March, 1882, an address of very sorious public import was delivered by Dr. Koch before tho Physiological Society of Berlin. It touches a question in which wo aro all at present interested — that of experimental physiology—and I may, therefore, be permit ted to give some account of it in the Times. The address, a copy of which has been cour teously sent to me liy its author, is entitled, ' The Jitiology of Tubercular Disease.' Koch iirst made himself known by tho pene tration, skill, and thoroughness of his re searches on the contagium of splenic fover. By a process of inoculation and infection, ho traced this terrible pnrasito through all its stages of development, and through its various modes of action. This masterly investigation caused the young physician to be transferred from a modest country practice, in the neigh bourhood of Brcslau, to the post of Govern ment adviser in the Imperial Health Depart ment of Berlin.

I'AIUSIAN LIAHS. Galignani's Messenger says : During tho early part of the campaign in Mexico, a French corps was encamped for somo time near a wood swarming with parrots. Every morning at daybreak the bugles sounded the notes of tho air to wliich havo boon set the well-known words : * , As-lu-vu ' ' ? La casqucite, la casquctto ? As-tu-vu La casquetto du per Bugcaiid ? ' and the parrots soon made their leafy resort resound with a perfect imitation of the tune. It has been handed down from father to son, and wo learn that some French travellers who recently passed through the forest ' wero greatly, and very naturally, astounded by hearing tho air — As-tu-vu ?

HIDING AN ALLIGATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 28 September 1882
ltlDINd AN ALLIGATOK. On last Saturday morning a sceno took place at Lake Lockloosa Station on the Peninsula Railroad, Florida, whioh for genuine excite ment and sensation will completely lay in the shade the best Spanish bull-light on record. A party of men on tho wharf saw a large alligator about a hundred yards out in the pleasant breeze was making. Some of the party got into a boat, carrying with them a small harpoon hook, and rowed out to tho alligator. ? When in convenient distance tho harpoon was thrown, and with unerring shot made its way into tho beast just behind the. right foro leg. No sooner than this was done, and while the alligator was raging in the' waters in its most powerful efforts to release itself, ono of the party, a Mr. Posey, a man probably 50 years of ago, leaped into the lake, swam to the rearing and surging monster, got upon its back, grabbed it around the neck and rode it to land, amid the shouts of thoso who wero fortunate enough to witness tho exciting ...

Miscellaneous. INCONGRUOUS FANCIES IN DREAMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 28 September 1882
flDiscellaneous. rNCONGRUOHS FANCIES IN DREAMING. In a work published by Dr. Symonds, of Eng land, tho author tells us that, in sleep — with the muscles relaxed, the senses at rest, thought and voluntary motion in repose — the work of the organic functions goes on, tho blood cir culates, is purified by respiration, and, for the timo'being, the body lives tho life of a vege table. But there are varied degrees of sleep. Some of our senses may bo comparatively waiietui, wnnst outers are in sound repose. In this state one organ may receive impres sions that will excite activity of association in others more or loss wakeful. It is this in complete state of sleep, this semi-repose of tho faculties, which produces dreams. Dr. Macnish, ' happening to sleep in damp sheets, dreamed he was dragged through a stream.' Dr. Symonds witnessed in his sleep what he thought was a prolonged storm of thunder, which he was afterward able to trace to tho light of acandlo brought suddenly into the dark roo...
Sketcher. SHOPPING IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 28 September 1882
Sftetcbey, SHOPPING IN MELBOURNE. Thinking that tho fair portion of the colony would like to know what one of their sex — lately arrived from tho centres of fashion in Paris and London— thinks of shops and shop ping in Melbourne, we have been permitted to publish tho following oxtracts from a letter sent homo recently by a well-known now arri val j who is making a tour through tho colonies, to a relative who intends coming out Hero to settle, on account of delicacy of constitu tion : — ' Deau F., — In my first letter, written as soon as I had got off my sea legs, as Bertie calls feeling that you are not rolling about, I gave you my first impressions of this town as regards tho buildings and people wo saw during a drive round tho place.

MOUNTAIN REGULATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 28 September 1882
MOUNTAIN REGULATORS. I1Y COL. OliOHOB W. BYMONDS. My iirst introduction to the Regulators was romantic, and decidedly dime novelish. Although I had had considerable oxporionco in mountain work, my acquaintances wore chiolly 'moonshiners.' I had hoard much about the strength of the now vigilante order, but gave littlo credence to the marvellous stories that wero told respecting tho solidity, respectability, and discipline of that famous mobocracy whioh has ruled mountain Ken tucky for tho past four years with an iron hand ; — which has committed many outrages, mado many mistakes, but, withal, rendered thq mountain counties safe to live in, and driven out tho desperadoes and outlaws. Tlio agent for my divison, early in tho month of June, 1878, sent me 011 a mission of invportance into one of tho rich blue grass counties, which county, by tho way, boasts of moro pretty women, fast horses, fat Dur hnms, and fine whiskey, than any spot of like size in tho world.
