Everyone we meet is sounding the praises of the beautiful rain which ha's i~t last given us a prolonged visit; and hias done an immense amount of good.

BRITISH OFFICERS AND THEIR WEAPONS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 19 March 1898
BRITISH OFFICERS AND THEIR V-WEAPONS. -4---- Time was when to be an expert swords man was looked upon as one of the most essential qualilications an officer could posseSs, and several of the most celebrat ed soldiers at the commencement of the century were remarkable as much for their personal prowess with the sword as for any of the larger gifts which go to form a great commiander. Sir William Napier could run or jnmup with any one of the gallant memlnbers of his regiment, and re cords how, in the race for the rocks at La Ithune, he was not a /ot behind the most active of them. And he could hold his own with the foils, tilh single-sticks, or the hayonet,as well as in more bodily activity. Marshal Beresford, too, was a man of mag nificent phl;sique, and owed his life to his thews and sinlews wheit he found himself engaged in a rough and tumble that would have shocked V'oln lonltke, with the Pol ish Lancers at Albuera. Lord Anglesey was also a typical beau sabrcur, and even when he h...

How Artists' Models Are Paid. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
ITow Artists' Models Are Paid. The regular rate in the art schools is 33)3 cents an hour, or $10 a week for six days' work of four hours each. If no coihnl:iiuts are made by the art student or class monitor, the model gets a 25 per cent premium. "Good days" are few and far apart, for the poses are 25 minut:s long, with onl.y five minutes' rest, and in difficultpositions more than human nature can endure. To get off the pose an instant or to keep it in a lazy manner provokes complaint, and although the croaker may be the veriest bungler it counts against the poor mod el, who may be trying to earn an honest livelihood.

There was a good attendance and all the ev,,)!s were well contested. Special. attention was given to the High Jump in which the winner was scratch man, and can ceded the second man 7 inches,. For a man that is off the grass, 5ft. 4ins. is really a good jump.

Christian Endeavour Corner. "For Christ and the Church." [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
Christian Endeavour Corner. "For Christ and the Church." The weekly meeting was held on Friday evening. There was a good attendance, and Miss Ma'Callum offi ciated as leader. The subject was "How to study the Bible." The majority of the members present took part, and a number of.practical sug gestions were offered. It was agreed that in order to obtain the most help from God's Word, it is necessary that it be read prayerfully, diligently, fre quently and systematically. Want of some system, it was pointed out, is very often the reason" why so many Christians fail to receive any benefit from Bible study. Dr. Harper's scheme was advocated as one worthy of the at tention of Endeavourers. An interest ing and sterling paper, written by, Mr. Geo. Allen, was read, and was much enjoyed. A paper by Miss Johnson, of Northcote, had also been received, but, owing to the lateness of the hour, was deferred till next 'meeting. The proceedings closed with prayer.

How to Boil Halibut. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
uow to Boil Halibut. Tie it nicely in a linen cloth, put it in a kettle of cold water, enough to cov er it, and add a tablespoonful of vinegar and a little salt, and after the water begins to boil let it boil from 15 to 20 minutes, and the fish is done.

Pour this sauce over the fish and gar nish with sprigs of parsley, and it is ready to serve. The potatoes should be peeled, and if not small enough cut as small as walnuts, boiled or steamed, and rolled in melted butter and chopped parsley before serving.
