APPLE JAMES GRIEVE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
APPLE JAMES GRIEVE. This ie a new apple. It was introduced a> few years ago by Messrs. Dicksons and Oo. jy nurserymen, Edinburgh. It is'named in!' compliment to ono of thoir late managers.'' I hare grown several trees of it, and they1 have done so well that I havo come to/ther conclusion that it is one of the beBt and most useful of all our apples. It possesses very many good points. It is compact and healthy, but not an exceedingly' strong' grower. This is a stamp of growth to be1 desired, as medium sized wood always fruits' best. It is enormously prolific The fruit are above medium sizo, of a beautiful form',: very olfian, mainly yellow in oolour, tender, in the flesh, juicy, and high-flavoured. It is a certain fruiter, and tho young trees are' quite a pioture.-J. BBOWN. F
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To oura feathers first mix a pound of quicklime with a gallon of watter. When the lime has sunk to the bottom, the feathers, having been first carefully pioked over, munt be put into a large tub, and the clear lime water poured over them. They must then be well stirred about until they sink, wh*>n they must remain until four days are over. They can then be drained off and washed in fresh water and left on a sieve to drain. When this is done they must be dried on nets, not very fino-meshed, so that tho feathers oan fall through when shaken abont. When quite dry the whole must be gathered together, and well beaten and shaken, when they will bo ready for use. j lt some pipe-olay and water be made into a Hoft paste, and placed over freshly-stained wall papers, suoh as marks whore a person's hoad may have rested, left on all uight, and then brushed over with a stiff whisk broom, very Uttio traoo will be found left on the paper.

SCIENCE. THE CARE OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
THE CARE OF CHILDREN. If a baby bo born in winter or; early in spring, it is best for the first fortnight of i cs little lúe to seleot two rooms whioh adjoin each other, so that change of air can be afforded without the risk of draughts of an ordinary staircase. A pillow on whioh to carry it or, what is considered by many doc- tors still better, a well-wadded oblong basket, ÍB preferable to the most loving and tender of arms. At the end of the time above named it can be taken about tbe house, buta flannel should be placed over its head when leaving any room. After tho first month, not before-these remarks apply, of course, to wintry and ohilly months-baby can go out, the first time for not more than a quarter of an hour, then for twenty minutes, and so on by degrees, the warmest and sun- niest time being always chosen ; but during the winter the period should never be a long one. TTntil two months old a baby should not be kept out more than an hour, morning ! and afternoon ; when a ...
ENGLISH LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
ENGLISH LETTER. The ohange in the temperature makes tis fancy we are in the middle of Ootober instead of only a few days in September, and those of us who possess furs -and who does not nowadays P-will be wearing them a month earlier than usual. We all know that the places to obtain really good furs are numer- ous, and I hear that firms have prepared some charming novelties for the autumn and winter, which will delight the feminine heart. I hope shortly to avail myself of the invitation to view the show-rooms and work-rooms and I shall not fail to report the result of my visit. n. Thus far of furs. For the present it is rain, rain, rain. Is this bad weather a fore ? runner to a long cold winter and the final break-up of summer ? One thing it posit- ively does mean,' that it is absolutely neces- sary to possess onoself of a mackintosh immediately, unless one contemplates staying indoors indefinitely.

HOUSEKEEPER. A FAVOURITE LOLLIPOP. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
A FAVOUÄITE LOLLIPOP. Nearly all little folks are fond of sweet things, but many mothers are inclined to look with suspioion at the highly ooloured confectionery in whioh the young people are wont to invest their pennies, more with an eye to quantity than quality ; and they con- sequently prefer to oater for the sweet tooth by administering judicious quantities of toffee and butter-scotch of home manufacture. By way of variety, the home oonfeotioner may like to try the following reoipe for a delicacy known as date-cream candy, the ap - pearanoe of whioh is always hailed with de- light in our own family :-Remove the Btones from half a pound of good dates, and place these in rows, with a space between eaoh, ou a buttered tin. Now boil two oups of sugar with one cup of water until the mixture threads ; remove from the stove and, when lukewarm, add a pinch of oream of tarter and a little vanilla extraot, and stir with a spoon until it is a thick oream.

TYPHOID FEVER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
TYPHOID FEVER. . . ? , . _ - I In this concluding article I propose to take a general view of the precautions we should take for the purpose of preventing the attack of this fever, which, as I write, is devasta- ting Lynn, is still present at Maidstone, and is also assuming unenviable proportions near Belfast. Truly the year 1897 will be remem- bered in the annals of sanitary soienoe as a typhoid year, and it will be a remarkable thing indeed if, with all our sanitary know- ledge, we are unable or unwilling to lay to heart and to praotice, the leesons hygiene is teaching us through the bitter experiences of fhe last few months. First and foremost, let ns bear in mind that we know exactly what spreads this fever. It oan never come to us save we swallow in germs, and we can never get its germs save from another and preceding case of the fever. . Therefore, the first thing to be done is to separate each oase of fever as it oeours, to recognise it early, and to disinfect thoroughly all ...
TRICKS AND GAMES IN SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
TRICKS AND GAMES IN SWIMMING. Plain, swimming, with it« attendant div- ing, treading water, floating and rolling in the warm sand, is quite good enough sport for most young people. But there are a number of tricks and games iu swimming which will help to make the sport more fascinating than it is. Few people realise how very nearly the human body comes to floating. Drop your arm loosely in the water. If it were not for the weight of tho head in proportion to the weight of the body a mon would swim as easy and naturally as a ho'so or dog. With those facts in mind, the good swimmer or floater keeps as much of his body under tho surface as he can. On the same principle a swimmer may keep him- self afloat by holding a very small piece of wood in each hand, provided he allows him- self to sink deep into the water, lt merely requires a little confidence in letting the body go deep into the water. I A SWEDE'S METHOD. A big Swede named Stromberg, who made himself famous several years ago as...
SKETCHER. THE FRENCH LANGUAGE. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
h THE FRENCH LANGUAGE. r;:Fórnierly French was the lunguage ot all Continental Courts, juar as-np to 1870-it . remained the language of diplomacy. But dftfrrrig the war Bismarck rebelled against tfcfs custom, and perhaps this was as bitter a blow to the French themselvea as the loss of a b ade. Once when negotiating with M'. Thiers ut Versailles about the conditions of poa co, thc Gerinuu Oiiancollor, offended By eotuo expression used by the statesman hifttorian, suddenly ro&lt;-;e, said that his know- ledge of Frenoh (which was perfect) was not equal to his comprehension of M. Tniers* meaning, and that if he wished to continue the conversation, ho would do so in German. Thereafter, Bismarck laid it down as a rule that if any non-French diplomatist at Berlin addressed the Foreign Ornoo in Frenoh he was to be replied to in the same tongue ; but that if he wrote in nis own lunguage he was to be responded to in German. n. Thus the German replies to Frenoh com innnioutions are a...
NATURALIST. THE IBEX. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
-&lt;*? THE IBEX. The Caucasian ibex is of a uniform brown- | ish colour, slightly darker on its under parts, and the male animal is furnished with a short, Btubby beard und large knotted horns, growing spirally outwards and back- wards, tho point» oí them inclining towards each other. The female possesses only short and, slender horn a. Its habitat is on the Asiatio side of tho Cauonsus, where it is found in tho highest and most rugged parts of the mountain nm ge. It is generally met with in small herds, but solitary individuals are sometimes come across. The natnro of its haunts make this goat difficult of approaoh, and, hoing also very shy and wary, it is an animal not easy to stalk. It is, no doubt, owing to the difficulty in oapturing specimens, and, when caught, of their impatience cf captivity, that this goat is so eoldoin seen in zoological collections.

FEEDING AND HOUSING RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
T FEED IK G AND HOUSING RABBITS. Tho question of feeding and housing our pots is one that invariably provokes a good deal of disoussion. "Whatever the particular hobby may be, opinions differ -widely on thesa points, oven among the most Buocesaful breeders. Rabbits are certainly no exoption. Tho question of fluid-whether any water Ol milk is to form part of the dietary-was one \ most decidedly negatived by tho old breeders» j But this has been almost entirely carried againßt them, and there aro now few rabbit rieg in which both water and milk are not freely used. There is little doubt that does about to kindle, or with young ones, are much assisted by an allowance of milk. Moreover, tho revolting practice on the part of the doe of cannibalism has been less ire quontly heard of tinco either milk or water has been given. Rabbits must have moisture in some shape or other, and when green food is scarce, or difficult to prooure good, a supply of clean, cold water is considered necessary ...
