HOW TO TEST CANNED GOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 29 May 1889
HOW TO TEST CANNED GOODS. -4- If vegetables and fruits are put in glass it is easy to see whethler they nre working, but in the caseoof the cianned goods of the shops, it is more diileult to distinguish the good from tbhe bad. A few rules given by a physician for testing canned goods may prove valuable to many. Ex amine every cap of the tin cans to see that there are not two holes soldered instead of one. If a second hole be found in the can it means that the contents have begun to spoil and the can has been punctured, the gas let out, and the con scaled up again. Secondly, examine the head of the can to see if a line of resin is seen around the solder, as at the side of the can. If this line is not seen rcjccttho can. It has been sosded up with a poisonous amalgam made of muriate of zinc instead of ordinary solder and resin. Thlirdly, press the bottom of the can to see if it can be pressed up like the bottom of a sewing machine oiler; if so, the contents contain decomposing gasses....
A DISSATISFIED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 29 May 1889
A DISSATISFIED MAN. Never give way to discontent, no matter what your status in life may he. Not surer or more certain dosn oxygen eat away iron than will discon tent weaken the mental and physical forces, often causing premature death. Boe cheerful avlways~ If in misery and pain, remember that it is a long lano that has no turning, and that when you do get to that turn you will be out of your trouble. When the car of Time is carrying you along smoothly over the road of life, don't borrow trouble. It don't pay the interest on the investment. On the contrary, the interest you pay is exorbitant, and may consume you before you can take up your note. It is astonishing how much fat an even, sunny.tempered man will put on his skeleton in the course of a life time. A discontented man is shunned by all, while a contented one becomes a magnet of attraction, around which everything that has life in it gathers, just for the fun of hearing him laugh and borrowing a little of his sunshine. A dis...
ROYALTY AT THE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 29 May 1889
ROYALTY AT THE THEATRE. The Prince and Princess of Wales went to the Princess' Theatre a month or two ago, and it may be of interest to learn how these visitations are managed. First, notice is given to the manager, who prepares the best box-if nicessary, knocking a couple of boxes into one--for the usa of the Royalties, while another is prepared for the people in attendaneoe. If the boxes should happen to bhe taken, notice is sent to those who have taken thems to the effect that thpey are wanted for the Royal Family, and the money is returned. About half a dozen pro grammloes are printed on coloured satin by the regular printors; several large bouquets are purchased for presenta tion to the' Princesses; a large stock of scarlet cloth is used for decorative purposes; a elmpet is laid down at the entrance; the visitors are received by the manager, and conducted to their box, or, in the case of the new then tres, to the Royal apartment; the rising of the curtain is delayed till their ...

STRAY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 29 May 1889
STRAY NOTES. The devil speaks for a man in a passion. Love may live an ago if you do not marry it. The fire of jealousy burns with very little fuel. A husband's name is a far bigger shield than a father's. On what strange solitudes every separate soul dwells. It takes two to toll a lie-one to speak and one to listen. Truth can be outraged "by silence quite as cruelly as by speech. To the spider the web is as large as to tile whale the whole wide sea. Woman is never too angry to be without a mouthful of sweet words. When girls are old enough for a lover they are a match for any grey head. A man that getse the , woman he wants very seldom gets any otlher good thing. A daughter is a little whlite lamb in the household to teach men to be gentlemen. . The Marquis of Bute has presented 130 acres of land to the town of Cardiff for a public park. All these inconveniences are incid. ent to love: reproaches, jealousies, quarrels, reconcilements, war, and then peace. Never fear to bring the su...

IT DOES NOT FOLLOW. That a young lady who tirps up stairs houhld be clumsy on her feet. That the man who cats hin wones should be hungry at the time. That the lady who throws you a i kiss ehould be fit to tieldlong-leg. That the geutleman who "outruns the constable" shouli be able to win a mile That the boy who bolted the apple should be broughlt up as a jailor. That the girl who overlshot the mark should be particularly strong. That the man who reaped the whirlwind aO a clever farmer.

WORTH BEARING IN MIND. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 29 May 1889
WORTH BEARING IN MIND. IOIRTUNES IN P'ISTERtS' INK. Don't expect nit advertisemeat to bear fruit in one night. oBr~? is the stlff of humano life, and advertising is the ltaff of basie?-s. A thing worth doing is worthi doing well. A tlhing worth advertising is worth advertising well. Quitting advertioiug in dull tioeo is like tearing out adam be aue water is low. Eitlher pln will prevent good times from coming. The enterprising advertiser proves thot he uolerstands how to buy, becau.Co ih ad verti.ing he klloons low to sell, Trying to do butilooso rithout adverti.tng is like winking at a pretty girl through a pair of green goggles. You nmy know what you aro loing, but no one else does. lntrprising Ipeople are beginning to Icrn the virtue of adverti.iog the ycnr round. The persistency of those who are not iotimidoted by the cry of "dull timeo, but keep their names ever before the publir will surely place them on the right side in the cnl.
