Alleged Miraculous Transformas tion. Great excitement has been caused in Lem berg during the past few days by a report that a certain picture of the tMadonna had suddenly undergone a miraculous transforms lion. The picture had been purchased many years ago from a Jewish dealer by a lady named Anna BIndek. It was old then and has since suffered very much from damp ness and dust. According to Anna, she was performing herdevotions before it one even ingrecently, when the picture was suddenly surrounded with light. It then besamo gradually rejuvenated before her eyes, and finally regained all its original splendour. Ever since, it has exercised "a most over powering influence," of a nature which is not quite clear. On the news of the wonderful occurrence spreading, large crowds flocked to the house in the hope of seeing the picture. The traffic was so much impeded that the police and ecclesiastical authorities decided to re move the canvas to the neighboring church of theMegdalone,previ...

Taxing the Ties AN IMPOST ON MATRIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 June 1895

Taxsing the Ties AN IMPOST ON MATRIMONY. In these days of depression the voices of lamentation are heard everywhere in the land, and with very good reason. Landlords complain of falling rents, and many of the stately homes, where they have been in the habit of practising hereditarty hospitalhty, are in the market. Investing speou !atora have burned their fingers in America, Australia and Argentina; the interest. on sound securities dwindles from year to year; commercial men are as clamorous in their complaints as the landed interest. In short, we are all more or less hard up: and it seems to be no time at anyrate or the imposition or aggravation of unnecessary social taxes. Yet the struggle in society is as severe as ever, though so many of tile strugglers must be heavily handscapped ; for the exigencies of a fashion, if unreasonable, are irresistible. There was a time when parents with marri ageable daughters made their comfortable settlement a personal affair. If they brought the ...

THE FAIR ROSAMUND. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 June 1895

THE FABR ROSAMiiU!UD. The sixth century, in which she lived, was an age of notable women ; for many years the Roman world had been ruled by two of them-the shameless Theodorae and the equally shamelesa Antoninas. through their uxorious husbands, the EmperorJus tinian and the hero Beliearius. And now, outside the limits of the Roman world, arose another just as shameless as they, Rosamund, Princese of the Gepid:e, Queen of the Lom. bard. Her path in life crossed that of Alboin, and destiny began to weave its dark toils about them while she was yet a child. All her life long at the Court of her grand father, Turlaund, King of the Gepidm, she must have heard mon speak, and heard her maidens sine, of the rivalry in deeds of war between her nation and the neighboring people of the Lombards, and she must have heard the women's songs turn to wailing when the news came one day that Alboin, the young Prince of the Lombards, had overeeme and slain in single combat her uncle, the King's son, t...

Useful Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 June 1895

Useful Hints. A simple remedy for foot sprains is to slide the fingers under the foot, pressing the thumbs over the painful parts for about a quarter of an hour. Never approach a drowning person from the front, but take him from behind by the hair, and never allow him to grasp any part of your body. To restore the apparently drowned person, the points to be observed are, first, the restora tion of breathing; second, the promotion of warmth and circulation. A good remedy for damp hands is 4oz. of Cologne to aoz. of tincture of belladonna, the hands to be rubbed in this several times a day. d arts may be destroyed by being rubbed with alum or touched with caustic or acetic acid. Ink stains can be removed from the hands by dipping them in warm water and then rubbing on a small portion of ozalic acid powder and cream of tartar, mixed together in equal quantities. Fosl ConaY.-Ingredients-The fish, a cocoanut, one onion, two pieces of garlic, 2oz. of butter, 24 cloves, a tablespoonful of ...

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 June 1895

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP, He being young, and, therefore, wise, de clared his disbelief in platonic friendships. She being-so she supposed-a "' New Woman," decided that Cupid's work had been shelved, and that friendships were glorious blessings. "It's absurd," ste assumed, with prettiest dignity. " O course, men and women can be friends. Surely if two sane individuals cannot be comrades without tumblice into love's whirlpool, I think it's about time for the grandl finale of worldly .:flairs to arrive." "Oh, you poor, little thing," was his answer. " Don't you know that we don't court love? It comes unhailed and un heralded, and, when it once tightens its sharp fingers around your heart,.thereis absolutely no getting away ?" "No. I don't know." " And if a man and woman are constantly near one another they are bound, in course of time, to fall in love." .',You're silly l"sberasped with scorn.

THE HORTICULTURIST. The Orchard and Fruit Garden. A complete system of drainage should be at tended to at this time of the year, as fruit trees of any kind will not flourish where there is an excess of water. In many instances it has been observed that apple, pear, apricot and other trees standing where the soil is kept thoroughly charged with water the whole winter, and for at least a couple of months during the spring, are so seriously injured that they cannot re cover during the summer. When the pores of the soil are all filled with water for months at a time, instead of warm air a frnit tree cannot thrive well, nor yield satisfactory crops of fruit until the land has been underdrained. In the management of old trees, however, under cer tain circumstances, it is folly and labor lost to attempt to rejuvenatethem. There is a limit to the duration of our apple and pear trees as well as to human life, so that after a tree has been dropping a branch hero and there for several years, a...

Do you think that mama', pretty fingers That sparkle and dance on the keys While themusia is rippling below tlem, Were ever as clumsy as these ?

Brindle; or, Ina's Pet Cow. To look at her now, you would never think that Brindle was the poor little calf you saw lying under a tree three months ago. "Just skin and bone !" you say. Yes, it was "just skin and bone!" but Ina Frost would not let it be so. Her soft heart opened to the poor little creature without any mother. So she took it up to the house and got Maria, (the nurse) to give it some warm gruel and milk, and soon it revived, and now Ina is quite proud of her pet. Ina is fond of her pets and has a good many of them. She does not go to school but her mamma teaches her, and she has plenty of time to feed and attend to them. Brindle is now a cow. Shoe as a calf which is called Flo after Inn's sister. Ina takes care of Flo for her sister, who is too little to do so herself.
