The Art of Dressing. It Is a Gift of Nature Possessed by But Few Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 December 1891
Th6 Art of Dressing. It Is a Gift of Naturee Poseesed by DIt Few Women. Dressing, lib kbissing, goes by favor. The art of dressinggwell is a gift of nature. The persons who are well dressed simply cannot help dressing well. It is not a question of cost at all, or d.thought, particularly. Give them the mostinexpenesive fabrics and least amount of time, and they will appear as ex. quisiteiy dressed as if they had been on. limited as to both, On the other hand, the veriestdowdy that ever appeared may have lavished time and thought and money on a tout ensemable that makes the beholder want cew-nc.e.TA....i.. ,rpll in not in the, bead, itis in the fingers.

Digestibility of Nuts. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 December 1891
S Digestibility of Nuts. N'ate are commonly ranked among articles very difficult of digestion,;bot that they are so is due. rather to the manner and the time which they are eaten than to the nuts` them: selves. The texture of the'meats is firm; and unless great careis taken' in mastication, they are apt to go into the stomach in little hard chunks not easily soluble by the gastric juice. To secure proper mastication, it is an excellent plan to eat them with a hit of hard bread or a cracker. The oil of nots is ih the form ýo an emulsion, similar to cream. They are' a very hearty, nutritious food. which should be taken at meal time and not just before going to bed as is often done. -They' make a very, good dinner dessert. • The popular notion that salt taken, with nuts is an aid to their digestion is a fallacy. Salt is I an antieeptio and its presence iq the stomach naturally retards the digestion: of. food, esp.cially if takenin liberal allowance..

An Electric Marvel. Edison's Latest Triumph with the Phonograph. The old phonograph, ,Edison's first attempt at anything of the kind, was made about 187;4, and exhiblted throughouu America more as a curiosity and toy than as a commercial or practical machine. For twelve years the inventor has occupied him. tell with the electric light, but the phone. graph has always bobbed, so to speak, in his mind, and nine months ago he hit upon a new idea. WVthin two months he so per fected it, that the mere making of the first expotimental machine was coauoaratively a simple matter. His present phonograph occupies leas space than a type.writer, and can be manufactured for sale at about £12. As a motor he uses a simple form of an electric motor, reqliring only four cellh of a simple-battery; it works without noise, and requires so little power that the battrries will run for a month without change, and will run the motor four or five hours a day.

The body was found by Peter Bidstrup and Frank Jones lying in the shallow part of the stream, face downwards; the poor fellow's hat and one shoulder alone protruding from the water. There is something slightly mysterious about the sad event, but the facts so far as known at present appear to be these: On the previous night Jack spent a portion of the even. ing, as was his wont, in the bar of Bidstrup's hotel, and appears to have been under influence the of drink.
