Making Her Things Last. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 26 February 1887

Making Her Things Last. Every housekeeper knows how careful treatment keeps table linen and household furniture. Girls do not always know or re member that great care of their own little possessions will often enable them to dress nicely on very little money. A lady says: " When I was a girl there was one of my young friends who was distinguished for 'making her things last.' Ier dress. hats, gloves and ribbons were a marvel of dura bility. I used to wonder how she managed to make them lanst so without their looking shabby, but I ceased to do so after I had visited her at her own home. The reason why her clothes wore so long was that she took such good care of them. Her dresses were brushed and folded away carefully, and the slightest spot on them was removed as soon as it was discovered. Her bhat ss wrapped in an old pocket handkerchief and past away in n box as soon as done with, the strings and laces being straightened and rol. led out most symmetrically each time. lecr gloves we...

She is nearly 5 years of age, the 15th of net month being the first day of her 95th year. In speaking of the conflict with igfloot she states that her ftler's acceount of the fight differs from the aecount given by historians, who wrote that her father, Adam Poe, bad the encounter with Bigfoot, when she says that her father always told that his brother, Andrew Poe, had the hand.tohand fight with the Indian chief, while he, Adam, shot and killed the Indian.

Alchililin Ilncomipatible with an Accurate |Perieption of Facts. DB T. L. WttIGIIT, 00D. ELLEFONToAINfE, O. The accuracy of the mental apprehension of facts depends verymuch upon the more or leus comiplete consiousmtss of the mind when the fact, are under observation. la complete an:esthesia there is entire un ecnscibusness, becamue, there being no sen sibility. there can be no perceptions offered or received. In every suborlina:e degtree of onesthesia there must be a correspondieg degree of im perfection in the perceptive function. When the nervous system is in a condition of partral anteathesia, such as always super reles during the alehotic impression, the kcowledgte of faets is infallibly darkened, and in several ways : First, the insensibility of the nervous sys tem causes the facts to be presented in a clouded manner, Events are enve!oped in in a mental haze which renders all concep tion. of th-m undefined and often very in correct.

Stephenson said: So far as can at present be ascertained, the value of seperated milk for pie feeding varies ftrm lid. to 3d. per gallon, according to the -price of pork. Probably the average compu tation of reliable authorities would fix its value for this purpose atabout.2,1. per allon, lees or more, when there is an average market, although their npprars to lbe room for more extended and exact experiments in arriving at its proper valuc. A scientific American farmer, who favors tne with occesinnal commonications on dairy ing subjectsL, fund by careful experiments rcondutced by himself. that 10011,, skim milk made iflb. of pork, whichl at 3d1. per lb., wouldl lay l.71. per alloen, or if the price were 5d. per b. for pork. the skim milk would be paid for at the rate of 3.12d. per gallon.
