Thrush, also, ::c cording to thle editor of ''Baby," should be treated with a. mixture of borax and glycerine painted three or four times daily on the mouth. A canmel's hair brush should be used for the purplose, and the amount of borax as imuch of the powder as will dissolve iu the glycerine. The same authority recom mends that in severe cases a weak solu tion of permauganatc of potash should be employed for "swabbing-out"'' the mouth.:nd that all feeding bottles, tubes, etc., should be both well washed aid keplt in the same.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. YOU WILL FORGET. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE LADIES' COLUMN. YOU WILL FORGET. You will forget. The flowering tide of spring Stands still at flood; the blossoms overflow For gladness, and beside that tender glow Of life, you kiss me, yet I dumbly know You will forget. Tile sulumer colmes. Ah, sweetheart, love is sweet; The very breath of God lies on the land; You draw me close to you, but though my hand In faith seek yours, I dimly understand You will forget. The earth grows chill. The banner of the frost Flames gold and crimson in the wood. We. start As from a dream, and, wondering, stand apart Ah. what is this? Hush, hush, my beating heart You will forget. Can I forget? The harvest of my soul Lies winnowed at your door. The meadow rue Which binds it as of old Is not more true Than I, and yet I walk alone, while you You have forgot. -The "lookman."
THIS QUEER OLD WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THIS QUEER OLD WORLD. It is queer how things go by contraries here, 'Tis always too cold or too hot, And the prizes we miss, you know, always ap. pear To be better than those we've got: ; It is always too wet, or too dusty and dry, And the land is too rough or too flat. There's nothing that is perfect beneath the blue sky, -But- t It's a pretty good world for all that. If Some people are born but to dig in the soll, And sweat for the bread that they eat, While some never learn the hard meaning o" tail. And live on the things that are sweet; A few are too rich and a lot are too poor, And some are too lean or too fat Ah, the hardships are many that men most endure, -But It's a pretty good world for all that. The man who must think envies them that must be Ever pounding and digging for men, And the man with the pick would be happy tl he Might play with the brush or the pen! t All things go by contraries here upon earth, Life is empty and sterile and flat; Man begins to complain on the ...
A DOUBLED PLEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
A DOUBLED PLEASURE. Is not that a sweet thought my girl readers, that you can double any plea sure that may come to you? It seems so to me, and I want it to so appear to you also. Do you ask how such can be? It is very easy; only to give a little thought, a little love. a little sympathy to the world around you. If a com panion should be invited to the same house as yourself, and you notice her looking lonely and unheeded amidst the amusement going on, double your own pleasure by increasing hers. Put aside for a little time your own special en joyment, sit dlown beside her, give a few words of praise for something you can truly admire in her toilette, seek to draw her amongst those who will cause her to lose the dreary sense of being overlooked, do all you can to make her feel glad she is present, then return to your own amusement (whatever it may be), and see if your pleasure be not in deed "doubled" from the thought that some other heart is more joyful for your thoughtful care.

GREASE ON CARPETS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
GREASE ON CARPETS.. The unsightly appearance of grease spots on a carpet is an eyesore to any housekeeper, and my readers may be glad to learn that such will disappear if a paste be made of equal parts of magnesia and fuller's earth, mixed with perfectly boiling water, and laid whilst still very hot over the marks. It must be left on until dry, and then brushed off. In ordinary cases. one application is sufficient, but should the spots still re main visible, a second coating of paste can be applied.

A nice little conundrum cropped up at a local shire council meeting recently. A rate payer had impounded a bull, putting 10s damages on it. The owner declined to realease the animal, as he would not give the impounder the satisfaction of getting the 10s, and did not think the ownership could be proved. The bull was kept four weeks and then sold, resulting in a loss. The pound keeper appealed to the council to know who was liable for the deficit, the person impound ing or the owner of the animal. They gave it up and passed it on.

Toye, have been rehearsing their respective parts in the tableaux and concert, which took place in the Public Hall on Wednes day last. The performance was organised for the benefit of the Children's Convalescent Home and the Ragged Boys' Mission. Although the weather was boisterous and wet a very fair, and certainly very appreci ative, audience rewarded the pro moters and the performers, for the trouble they had taken in organising the concert. The Rev. C. H. Hunter presided, and referred in enlogistic terms to the splendid results achieved by the Ragged Boys' Mission. Many a lad of promise had been taken off the streets and rescued from a life of crime ultimately to develop into a useful and honored citizen.
