Two Engaged Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

Two Engaged tiirls. lt's as good as a circus to listen to tbe general conversation of two engaged girls. The interesting dialogue usually jogs along something like this : " We haven't decided yet just when we're to be married, but I think perhaps it'll be some time in-" " Mine is going to be a swell church wedding, with a tulle veil and flower girls and white ribbons strung up the aisle and-" " Dear me, I wouldn't be married in church for loads of money. I never could say * I will' before a crowd of people. A simple little home wed-" " Jack says he knows Td look sweet in a white satin gown, and white is so be coming to me. Jack says that I'll be the prettiest bride in the world. Of course, his ideas are a trifle biased, but-" " Oh, say, you ought to have seen Will when he proposed to me. He acted just like a lunatic, and I wanted to laugh so that I thought I'd die.

Matrimonial Complications. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

matrimonial Complication». TJp and down our Indian Empire cer tain matrimonial complications have been going: on, of which, though they began four years ago, and have got themselves-some of them, at any rate into a court of law, it would be quite un safe to say that they are at an end yet (says the " Pall Mall Gazette"). She was the lovely Alibat Bee Bee. She began the evil by marrying Chilling. She is, indeed, careful to explain that she did so " according to Mohammedan rites," and these would seem to possess so little binding force that the Woman Who Does might also do as much again. So it was that, at the end of a month, in the temporary absence of Chuling, the Advanced Alibat went through the same rites with Hossain Bux. But she had a mother, and so had Bux : and the mothers had words, and her mother spirited her away from Bux, and Nussoo came along. Nussoo emanci pated her from the maternal thrall, and with rites as before she married him. Meantime, Chuling had come home, had a...

Salt: Some of Its Uses. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

Salt: Some of Its Uses. Salt has a place in every household, Goodwives, and it is useful for other purposes than that of merely seasoning our food. A bag of hot salt applied to temples that ache and throb with neural gic pain will give relief to the sufferer speedily, and this remedy is the more to be commended that it is always procur able and costs little-even in the matter of trouble ! Salt and water is said to to be a good dentrifice also, and while it cleanses the teeth it hardens the gums. If yon drop a little salt amongst your starch, whether that be cold or hot, you will not be annoyed with sticking irons. The discolouration which appears at in tervals on our tea-cups and saucers can be removed by the application of damp ; salt. j

General News. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

General Neis. In this issue appears an article on " Tne Battle of Life," which we would recommend subscribers to peruse. China has begun the manufacture of smokeless powder. A spider can live ten months without food. There is only one sudden death among women to eight among men. At present the longest single sub marine cable is 2,700 miles. Smoked snow-water is a favourite tipple in Lapland. There are one hundred nerves in the human body. The word " its ' only occurs once in the whole of the Bible. A new rifle just introduced in the German Army fires from 25 to 30 shots a minute. The world produced in 1898 more gold than it produced both gold and silver in 1888. Lack of physical exercise has a ten dency to make school ohildren short sighted. Silk ÍB considered unclean by the Mohammedans, because it is the product of a worm. Australia ts the one place in the world where the towns are more beautiful than the country. Scientific men generally believe that the bed of the Pacific Ocean w...

The Sketcher. Coincidences. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

"1 The Sketcher. Coincidences. An article^ " Good Words," by tbe editor, Dr. (-K'^^d, contains a string of well-autherJH A coincidences.. These cannot but el mrage the novelist, who discovers thail o invention of his can be more improbóle than reality. Thus, a sailor idly curs his name on a piece of wood, on Spanish shores, and the waves carry it to his sister's feet, on the coast of Orkney. The Duke of Argyll startles a bird which is flying overhead, and it drops a pine cone at his feet, the vehicle of a vegetable substance almost un known to science. A lady loses a ring, and it is found next year by her servant in a potato which she is peeling. In the same way, a sportsman is said to have lost a ring on the moor. Next season he found it in a peat which he broke up and threw on the fire in a cottage. This looks like a "variant" of a fairy tale, but the potato anecdote, at least, is au thentic. The same may be said of the Roman bracelet, thrown overboard by its owner in crossing the...

The Battle of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

The Battle of Life. Thanks to that constant source of knowledge, the microscope, two dis coveries of more than asnal importance and interest have been made by scientists recently. In Paris, Dr. Bra has suc ceeded in isolating and rendering visible the microbe of that dreaded disease, cancer. While in India another physi cian, Dr. Ronald Ross, was able to watch a battle to the death, between a { burglarious microbe in the shape of the malaria microbe, and one of the police men of the human body, a white blood corpuscle. From those two interesting, bat to the lay mind unimportant, achievements, great things are predicted by bacterio logists. The discovery of the specific microbe of cancer, it ia declared, heralds the elaboration of. an anti-toxin which will cure that disease. Work has already been done along this line, and some measure of success has been attained. The result of this certainty is that future methods of treatment for all germ diseases, notably such as consumption and t...

CHAPTER XXXVII. THE STRANGE SCHOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

CHAPTER XXXVII. THE STRANGE SCHOONER. ' There is the schooner ! See !* - The cry fairly burst in a yell from the lips of a midshipman on board the United States vessel-of-war at anchor in the little harbour of an island in the West Indies. When the tempest had swept over, leaving wreck and destruction in its wake, and the pretty schooner was nowhere visible in the harbour, a feeling of deep sadness had fallen upon the officers and crew, for Lieutenant Rodney Randolph, next in rank to their captain, was a favorite j with all on board. i A handsome, dashing fellow, brave j as a lion, a skilful officer, and devoted ! to the interests oí his men, no man in ! the navy was more highly regarded, j and a gloom had come upon the ; cruiser's crew when it was believed j that he had, after being wrecked in the boat, gone down in the schooner, whose men had rescued him. But the eyes of all had been search ing the harbour shore and waters, and not until the midshipman glanced seaward and beheld t...

DISTRICT CRACKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

DISTRICT CRACKERS. Mrs. B. Eggleton, junr, of Cattai,   has been seriously ill for the past   fortnight. There was quite an influx of cyclists in town on Monday last from the metropolis. It is the intention of Mr. C. G. Hatte to have the trading boat Hatte beached at Wind or to undergo the necessary repairs after her recent accident. Lieutenants Greenwell and Fitz- gerald, of Windsor and Richmond respectively, have been successful in the military examinations held in Sydney last week. Fish are becoming very plentiful in the river at the present time, and last week several fishermen from the lower part of the Hawkesbury came into town with large numbers. Constable Rol. Marden paid a visit   to Windsor last week, and looked none the worse for the rough handling he received at the hands of some Sydney larrikins some time ago.   Several private picnics were held on South Creek and the river on Monday last. Everyone seemed to take ad- v...

An Interesting Group. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 October 1899

An Interesting Group. Outside one of the big Paris stores there were lately grouped a lady, a nuresmaid with a baby In her arms, and ' an inspector of police in the execution « of his duty (says the " Pall Mall Ga- 1 zette"). The lady had just been given ?< into custody on a charge of unlawful * sampling off the counters. She was pro testing her innocence in the most elo- j quent-and moving terms. The nurse maid was too far gone for words, but ' she sobbed in a highly effective manner ' upon the baby's shoulder. The great heart of the people that stood round was stirred, lt found voice, anon, in cries of a bas against that inspector. Abased, indeed, he might have been had he not : shrewdly and suddenly unwaterproofed > his prisoner. For, underneath, she was all over-proof-fluttering with fans and i fancy articles, festooned with lace and ribbons and fal-lals of sorts, hung round with natty boots and neat umbrellas. It was a sight to give the abasers pause. A 1 certain ...
