At Mock Auction. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 16 February 1887

Airlock Auction. By introducing a mock auction, a hostess can provide an evening's pleasant enter tainment for her guests. II must bo un derstood that no money is culled for, .tlio hostess providing each gyiest with from lifty to ono hundred white beans, which arosupposed to represent a shilling, alid all the bidding is done with them. It will bo necessary to provide beforehand tliu arti cles to bo sold, which Bhould each bo wrapped in paper, or so disguised that no one may know what llo is bidding for. Tho auction is much moro interesting and tho bidding moro spirited if each package is found to contain ono little thing of tri .11 ing value, although some should bo of an amusing charactor. I attended ono a short timo ago, wliero the daughter of our hostess was quito ail artist; a numbor of tho parcels wero found to contain trifling sketches mado by hor. So tho bidding be came quito exciting, each ono hoping to got some speeimon of hor handiwork. A sign might bo displayed in somo pr...

A Woman's Opinion. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 16 February 1887

A Woman's Opinion-' For my part, I ndniiro tho man who 'wears a carefully cultivated mustache. Of course, thero nro noodlo-hcada- who4 arc prouder of their mustaches than a peacock is of its now feathers, but they are not the ones I endorse, and thoy really do bring tho mustacho into disrepute. Thero aro few faces which nro not improved by n carefully-cultivated mustache, and 1 think whon a mustache signifies anything at all it is something creditable. Of course, there aro mustaches which aro as void of expres sion as tho moss on a dead log, and I don't mean that every mustacho is an advocate for its wearor, but most aro. Somo men's faces remind mo of a royal Bengal tiger, and all such aro very wise to wear a nnis- . tacho, which they usually can do. Tho stiff, brusque, military mustacho always adds dignity to its possessor, and tho man who can wcaran iron-gray mustacho should bo, I think, an object of envy to his sex. The mustacho brushed back nnd up, I don't liko. Itniakesamanlook...

A black, bitter winter night, the hoar-frost of which stood white and thick on the beards of tho soldiers who enme tramping in from their cold night-watch, stamping their half frozen feet, and striking their benumbed hands hard against each other. War was raging in every part of England, King Charles and his nobles battling with the Parliament and the people. Among the other places that, were being fought for was tho old town of Leicester, and it teemed now as if a few days more must decidc which party wns to have it. Tho cutting wind that bad been blowing fiercely all day had lulled about nightfall, and all was deadly still ; but ever and anoli a red flash broke through tho darkness, and the deep boom of a gun told that the enemy was on the watch. Those in the guard-room were hardy and practised soldiers from tho picked men of Cromwell's army— all except one. That one was a tail, brown haired, rather . ...

To the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 16 February 1887

To the Ladies. The importance of physical culture can scarcely be over rated. The hair, the tooth, the eyes aud tho skin, arc subject to the in fluences of digestion, and is not the latter to be almost controlled by diet, bathing and fresh airf People go all the year With the pores of their skiu clogged, and they rave over the benefit to bo obtained at the water cure, simply because they do there what they neglect at home— bathe regularly, systemat ically and particularly. It is, of course, absurd to prescribe ccrtain baths as infallible cure-nils. What will do for a robust person will kill n frail one ; but tho general rule of frequent nnd judicious bathing may be laid down. Thon comes fresh air. The windows of a house should be numerous and opposite, nnd there should be patches of God's sun light on the floor instead of the rosthetic gloom so depressing to the young, who are to be carefully trained. Tho writer would urge gymnastic cxcroises first, ahead of Greek aud Latin, and a r...

Health. Health foods. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 16 February 1887

Tbealtb. Health Poods. - * The day is cold and dark nnd dreary indeed when one docs not find in an exchange a fresh theory upon the proper kind of food for human consumption, together with authori tative directions for its proper preparation. The amount of unadulterated ignorance dis played by some of tlicso writers would be more startling to tho careful -reader wero he competent to pronounce judgment with certainty, but the fact is that the world moves so slowly in the matters of diet and medicine that there is to-day not one authority on cither whose words are believed by a very largo constituency. One crank will tell you that bread mnde from white flour is like lead in tho stomach, and should j be discarded entirely, the coarse meals— rye, corn and oat— being used instead of it. Another will enlarge on the value of musli ? gruel and porridge from oatmeal, rye or corn meal, and will prove to his own satisfaction that mush is tho only fit food, in connection with fresh fruit, for t...

Science* Ono oftho most in tercsting fncts observed by rro[c'8Sor Noidenskjiild in the Arctic re gions was the absence of any geological evi dence that glncicrs covered Greenland or Spitzbergen in former ages. ' Wo have never seen,' he writes, ' in Spitsbergen or in Green land any boulders even as large as a child's head. There is not the smallest probability that strata of any considerable extent, con taining boulders, nrc to bo found previous to the middle of the. Tertiary period.' Com montingon tbesc statements, Mr. James Croll, the author of tho well-known work on the re lations between climate and time, remarks : ' That Professor Nordenskjold may not have scon in strata boulders larger than a child's head may bo perfectly true, but that there actually aro none is a thing utterly in credible.'

A laine one nnmigthem attracted the attention of the sailors, who made a pet'of it, and by degrees it came to have tho liberty of the ship.

When they were talking together it would wake up, with Hint movement of hnnd nnd neck ncculiar to I he goose family, place itself between them, look from one to . nother as if studying their meaning, interject a 'Qua, qua' here and there, and till up tl'e pauses with agibberish which wns irresistibly funny, and was always received with shouts of laughter.
