Household Tips. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Household Tips. To clean bedroom ware and marble-topped washhand stands, rub well with a rag dipped in turpentine. Tliis method is particularly useful in a sickroom, M'here milk, medicine, &c., is apt to be dropped, and requires to be quickly cleaned up at least once daily. Cabbage is made more wholesome and nutritious by being boiled in two waters. It contains an essential oil which is apt to pro duce a bad effect upon people who have weak digestions; boiling iu_two successive waters corrects this. When cooking vegetables, keep the lid off, and boil fast. Cabbages and turnips should be boiled in slightly salted water, and taken up immediately they are cooked, or they will cause a disagreeable odour to pervade the house. Roast meat that should be juicy and tender often comes to table hard and dry as a board. The reason of this is that the oven was not hot enough when the joint was first put in to harden the outer surface, and to keep the juices of the meat imprisoned within....

"FOR'ARD."

New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

New Australia. [Letter received by Mr. T. W. Cleary, Goodwood, from Mr. Nat Riches, Para euav: dated 22ud August. 1 Dear Old Friend—I received your letter I dated June 24 quite safe, and pleased, oi I coarse, to hear from you, and I also felt , very grateful for the interest you take in my welfare, in offering to forward the money for ine to get back, but this affair is too good to leave after making so great a sacri fice in time and money and loss of house, as I expect the wife could get very little for it; she has never said liow much in any of her letters. We are going on first rate since Lane left, all working together preparing the land for crops. We have a large quan tity of sugar-cane planted, and coming on well; also five or six acres of maize, also wheat, and we are going to put in about thirty acres of ramee, a vegetable silk, now coming greatly into use, and there is a party in Villa Rica—an Englishman, named Smith —who has supplied us with seed, and will instruct us in p...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Notes. [Bt Phillibttstee.] It's very funny, and sometimes even pathetic, to notice how the gent who bosses the Country newspaper oc casionally lets himself out. With nothing particular to go for in the columns of our paper, he manufactures something—a kind of Guy Fawkes filled with straw— and then proceeds to blow that some thing up. The old story of the wolf and the lamb. " You are stirring the mud up, and making the water thick for me." " That is impossible," quoth the lamb, " the stream is running from you to me." "Ah, well, anyhow your dam annoys me"—sufficient excuse for making a meal off the lamb. And so with our genial contemporary. He applies a little paragraph from our paper the wrong side up about empty debaters, <fcc., and by a course of reason ing only understood by himself makes the Parliamentary Liberals out to be frothy and reprobate, and by-the-bye the Country would hardly call Ward a Liberal surely. Then, again, the Country naively asks—" Are the labor me...

Christianity and Bags of Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Christianity and Bags of Wheat. A day or two ago my attention was drawn to this subject by a practical mail, a steve dore, and from him I gleaned the following facts :—" The bags of wheat were usually so heavy tliat none but very strong men could work at wheat lumping, aud these liad generally to give in after about two seasons ; all the medium aud lighter men had to con tent themselves without work; occasionally they ventured to overtax their powers for an odd day, just to keep the wolf from the door. I understand there is a movement being made to induce legislative action ; but cannot all Christian farmers take the matter up in the cause of humanity, and never put more than from 200 to 224 lbs. in a bag ? At present some men can earn during the wheat season more than sufficient for their families, aud with the surplus some get drunk, while other men have to staud by and look on. This is a state of things which Christian fanners can do a lot to alter.*'

On the Wing. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

On the Wing. Hark i I hear the cannon booming, Whywhat is that you said It is to show to us who live, The Czar of Russia's dead. Why have this fuss about the dead, 'Tis needless waste indeed, For many round us sadly want, And others really need Bread, to sustain their little ones Depending on their care. Yes, some around us die of waut Or live on coarsest fare. Then let us leave to God the Great Who'll judge the righteous dead, And let us think of those who live In need of daily bread. One thing the workmen of the present day must learn, and that is to control their grosser appetites. They cannot afford to sink their earnings in the beersliop or the gambling saloon. Sincerity is the virtue which we lack 111 all our actions. If we could only be sincere for twelve months the work which we should have to show at the end of the year would surprise us. Wrecks and railway accidents briug to the surface plenty of the sympa thising and feeling side of -humanity; pity it does not stay long e...

Teachers With Itching Ears. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Teachers With Itching Ears. The Editor of the Country spreads himself out on religious topics tliusly :—" The Bible has entwined itself round the heart and taken captive the intellect of the nation. . . . We were early taught to revere that book. . . . We were never allowed to put it to casual use, as is often one's wont with other books, as, for instance, to raise a seat a little higher, or to keep a door from shutting, or as a paper weight, or even if broken up to light a fire. ... But once the minister leaves the pulpit and descends to the platform his protection and his calling are gone. He is no better than anybody else. And, indeed, if he be a proper minister, he is necessarily rather worse—that is, as a platform guide he is much worse. . . . On that platform the ministers meet these men and use the holy names and Scripture texts as freely, as in differently, and as vulgarly as the atheists aud agnostics do. There can be but one result. Either Adam Smith and Voltaire will be r...

News Condensed. The Tantanoola Tiger is still at his old game. Thank goodness; we were afraid the critter had at last quitted. Hairdressers of Melbourne are agitating for a municipal by-law which will close their shops at certain hours. Ye Country editor trying to befool his readers by distorting and manipulating extracts from our paper. The Governor goes on January 17—and isn't he glad. Lascars are good for the service of ship owners, but if Lascars are to be employed on board our ships, kanakas on our plantations, Chinese iu our laundries and gardens, black fellows on our stations, what the dickens is to become of white servants ? Bicycle exporters and Customs at vari ance. The Sick Poor Fund is being largely drawn upon. Invest a shilling or two per week in Starr-Bowkett Societies, and get vour own houses.

Socialism, Orthodox and Heterodox. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Socialism, Orthodox and Heterodox. ■ Aii authority of some uote once defined heterodoxy and orthodoxy as fallows: — Orthodoxy, my creed ; and heterodoxy, your creed. So to-day, notwithstand the apparent warmth with which socialism is attacked by individualists and opportunists, there is an orthodox socialism which they give no little support to. For instance, as pointed out so ably by Rev. Platts last Sunday from the pulpit, the movement to force Bible reading in State schools on the people, regardless of the dissent of a strong minority, and at the expense of the taxpayers, is socialism. And even as the interference of the State in connection with proposed land and other like reforms is regarded as socialism, so must the interference of the State in dis putes between men and masters, cases of eviction of Irish teuants, and Scotcli-crofters be considered, because after all the community as a whole have to pay the cost. Notably in the case of Irish evictions has this kind of orthodox...

Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Current Topics. Where can you equal this for humour :— Labor member Sleath, of N.S.W., sent a wire to Dr. O'Hara, of Melbourne, who thumped lawyer Purves—" When next you hit the animal, hit liiin anywhere bat on the head to hurt him." The joke lies in the fact that this was the wire sent by Purves himself to bank manager Cotton, when the latter struck Sleath with a ruler at Broken Hill, at the time of the big strike at that place. Everything comes to him who waits. Pa December 1 the first labor daily in Australia promises to be an accomplished fact. It is to be called the Daily Post, and will be issued from Sydney. Delivered with anything like a fair sample of labor journalism and bright radical writing, it should be taken by every man and woman in sympathy and in touch with the labor movement. —Sydney Worker. Says a capitalistic contemporary :—" It was a matter of general talk along the river some days before the event that the Rodney would be attacked, and the Hon. J. L. Par sons,...

The Liability of Employers in Different Countries. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

The Liability of Employers in Different Countries. FRANCE. The question of the liability of employers to compensate workmen injured in their service being now before our Legislative Council, it may be of interest to our readers to briefly state the replies received by i«or<l Rosebery to a circular seeking information on tlus subject issued by liini on March JO, 18S0 to the various Consuls. The circular indicates that the following points are of par ticular importauc©: _ t j 1 Is the employer limited to any par- I ticular classes of employment; and if so, to wlw.t das^^t jQes t]je fa<;t that injury arose from the act of a fellow-workman relieve the employer from liability. 3 Does it make any diffetence if the fellow-workman was in authority over tlie workman injured, or in a position of autboi itv in the employer's bnsmess generally . 4. Is there any difference between the employer's responsibility for the condition of machinery, plant, and permanent ap pliances...

Working Men and Sunday Worship. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Working Men and Sunday Worship. Tlie Rev. A. C. Sutherland, of Port Ade laide, we understand, caunot believe that men are to be found who work so hard through the week that they become too tired to attend worship in Church on Sunday. We hold different opinions, for many men we know who toil six days of the week wel come the Sabbath, not as a day to waste time in adorning themselves and listening to dreary and dismal theological pulpit ad dresses, but as a day upon which the mind may soar out and expand in the freshness and purity of God's free air, and upon which they may rest. The social, industrial, and religious state of our time is to blame for this choice, not the men themselves. Why should they be expected to go where their sympathies are not. The Churches, or the majority of them, are for the well-to-do people, and fresh aiy and the day of rest for the working man, But we want to draw the attention of Mr, Sutherland and other ministers who w@ believe to be sincere, to the fac...

The London County Council as a Model Employer of Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

The London County Council as a Model Employer of Labor. In a recent number of the Contemporary Review Mr. Clem Edwards contributes an i interesting article on " The Policy of | Labor," in which special mention is made of the constantly increasing number of muni cipal and other pnblic bodies in Great Britain which are following in the footsteps of the Loudon County Council by establish ing works departments for the performance of their own work direct. As an instance of the manner in which the London County Council has carried out its functions of a model employer, Mr. Edwards says :—" The most conspicuous example of the public model employer is that of the London County Council. They have fixed for their own workmen a minimum wage of £1 4s. for a maximum working week of forty eight hours. Every workman is given the right of appeal, iu the event of any griev ance, direct to the committee under whose department be may be employed. In the case of the men employed by contractors the Cou...

COMING DOWN OFF THE FENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

COMING DO Wis OFF THE FENCE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir—Though the Kev. JNlr. Jetteris has coine down on the best grassed side of the fence, as was anticipated, it is much better that lie should do so than continue to make a pretence of not favouring any side, while balanced airily upon the rail. So he is going to convince the youth of this province of the " wickedness of socialism !"' He might as well say at once " of civilization," for where the:e is no social bond there can be no civilization. It strikes me that there is a vast deal of nonsense talked about " indivi dualism and socialism or collectivism," as though they were opposites instead of com plimentaries one of the other. The type of pure individualism is the wild man wholly cut off from his fellows, Avhose hand is against every man, and every man's hand against him. Even the despot and the mil lionaire are in some degree bound and influenced by social bonds. Socialism seems, therefore, a question of degree, which appears to me w...

Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Herald — 23 November 1894

Editorial Notes. Let us take a glance afc tilings as they are. The vrorld is in a state of in dustrial revolt, competition being- so keen, and machinery having superseded labor to such a degree that men and women are regarded as mere chattels. The lives of miners, seamen, factory operatives, &c., have in many countries become a regular burden to them, and men and women are rushing out of ex istence by means of their own hands in a way which suggests death to be a most happy release. In France and England, move especially, the suicidal mania is growing to alarming proportions. Again, as pointed out by Lady Dilke the other day, women of all ages in the great cities of Britain are being hounded into the winter fields to purchase food and raiment for those they love at the ex pense of their honor. Yet men read about these things, and forget them. Who, then, shall keep them green in the memory and seek to alter them if it be not socialists ? By united and co operative effort can ...
