TO CLEAN A STRAW HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 12 August 1901

TO CLEAN A STRAW HAT. _ 1. Wash well with soap and water, rinse in clear water, and dry in the air. Then wash it well over with the white of egg well beaten. 2. Use oxalic acid and water for Dunstable straw bonnets, which, no doubt, would answer equally as well for any other kind, provided they arc not of too fragile a texture to bear the brushing necessary for cleaning them properly. An ounce of oxalic acid, dissolved in a quart of water, is the proper pro portion, but if the straw be very dirty, add a little more acid. It is applied with a nail-brush; the bonnet may be left to dry, when it will be found to have regained all its former stiffness, and freshness too, if not too much sunburnt to begin with. 3. Wash it first with soap and water. When dry wash again with a solution of gum arabic or with the white of an egg, well beaten up. Or you can wash it with a solution of oxalic acid. Before washing, any wire hat band, etc., should be removed.

MAKING BEER WITH MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 12 August 1901

MAKING BEER WITH MILK. A certain Mr. J. H. Hooker, of Buckingham, has, we learn from the ' Mineral Water Trades' Review,' opened up a new possibility altogether in connection with the brewing of beer. Instead of wafer he uses milk, which has either been peptonised or which is undergoing peptonization. The wort is prepared from the malt by treating it with this warm milk in the usual way in the brewing practice, The wort thus prepared is then separated from the spent grain in the usual manner, and boiled, either with or without hops, after which it is fermented, racked, fined, barrelled and bottled. 1 Mrs. Langtry's youthful daughter Jean is to " come out" this season. J The girl is a second edition of her mother, but rather taller. A well known Academician his juq.t pjjinte^ her portrait, which ■will be a cfinjbicu* ous item in tbg fotthcoAihg

EFFECT OF TEA ON BODV AND BRAIN, Hochand E. Kraepelin liavc re cently Investigated the physiological action of Chinese tea. The authors made experiments on the action of the principal constituents of the tea— caffeine and the essential oils—upon the nerves and brain. \iy means of the ergograph they have determined that the administration of caffeine increases the capacity of muscular action, while that of the essential oils of tea has a contrary effect. The latter, however, Increase the cerebral activity. Tea, therefore, is not only a nerve stimulant, but a brain-stimulant, effectuating a mental as well as a bodily activity; but the stimulus ex ercised upon the mind by the essential oils it greater than that exercised upon the body by the caffeine.

A MONKEY HAS THE MEASLES. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 12 August 1901

A MONKEY HAS THE MEASLES. Dr. Chaligriy, an army surgeon, lias communicated to the Academie de Medecine an interesting note on two cases of measles which occurrcd at Constantino; simultaneously; one patient was a Zouave, and the other a monkey. The monkey, according to his report, was tended and caressed by the Zouave, who had been ailing for six days. He was admitted to the military hospital, and next morn ing unmistakable symptoms of measles appeared. Measles were prevalent at Constantine, but the exact origin of the illness could not be established. The keeper of the monkey who re placed the Zouave observed that the animal was depressed and ailing; this condition was followed by an eruption identical with that of measles. The illness followed the usual course, and the animal recovered.

A PUZZLER. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 12 August 1901

A PUZZLER. In many ports of South Africa rail ways arc comparatively a new depar ture, and, in consequence, a large proportion of the farmers are wholly ignorant of the way engines work on the lines. One stalwart colonist who thought himself cleverer than his companions was standing on the platform at Bloomfontein, the capitul of the Orange Free State, during shunting operations. He had been explaining the principles of steam motive power to an amused crowd, when suddenly the engine began to move backwards, pushing a 6tring of trucks. His jaw dropped, and he gasped out: 1 " I can understand how the engine pulls the truckii but I'm blessed if I know how the truck* pull the engine back again." | Then the crowd yelled.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT UP-TO-DATE. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 12 August 1901

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT UP-TO DATE. The French are talking of ab oblishlng the guillotine. Electrocution has been spoken of as a substitute, but ordinary illuminating gas promises to be the successful candidate for the favour of Monsieur de Paris, as the French Jack Ketch is styled. M. Berthelot says: There is no scientific objection to the use of illuminating gas for this purpose. Dogs are regularly asphyxiated in Paris by means of gas. The animals are placed in a box, which is connected with a gas pipe, and they are stifled very soon after the gas is turned on. As for criminals who might be asphyxiated in this fas hion, it is probable that they would suffer, at least for gome seconds) death would not be instantaneous. 'There would be contractions, spasms, and, in consequence, a momentary struggle against asphyxia, the result of which would, of course( be a certain amount of suffering,

SCIENTIFIC & USEFUL. APROPOS TO THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 12 August 1901

SCIENTIFIC^ USEFUL APROPOS TO THB SEASON. Among spring ailments a bad cold is not the least trying. "Only a cold," is the usual way of speaking of one of the most thoroughly uncom fortable and unpleasant "ills that flesh is heir to." And there is at all times the danger of its developing— if neglected—into some far more serious malady. As soon as a sensation of cold is felt, take„means to check further ad vance. As a remedy that usually proves eflectual in the first stage of a cold, take the juice of a lemon, six' lumps of loaf sugar, a teaspoonful of sal volatile, or the same quantity of brandy; then fill the glass with boil ing water, and drink as hot as pos-1 sible; by sipping out of a spoon, the fluid can be taken at greater heat than when the lips are applied to the glass. The same remedy may be taken once or twice a day.
