£500 WORTH OF 'SMASH.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

£500 WORTH OF * SMASH.' . Yes, I suppose you can hardly believe it, yet it is true. Our little account for break- ages amounts to something like £500 a year, and that is for crockery alone. Think of the enormous number of plates and dishes, and cups and saucers, you can buy for that sum, and you have some idea of the number of breakages made by careless waitresses.' It was the head manager of one of the great London restaurant syndicates, whose places of refreshment are dotted in every corner of the city, who made this speech. . Of course,' hecontinued, * in many in-   stances the girls are responsible, and they have to replace the crockery broken through their direct negligence, or at least are fined to the extent of its value. The £500 repre- sents the accidents that are nobody's fault. If people only developed the habit of eating from plates and drinking from cups made of some other material, such as porcelain lined tin, then a big item in our profit and loss account...

LADIES' COLUMN. BE BEAUTIFUL IF YOU 'CHEWS.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

-"- , BE BEAUTIFUL IF YOU ' CHEWS.'   . The famous society beauty laughed a rip- pling laugh as a newspaper man asked her for a recipe for loveliness. '   'No,' she observed, ' I never use paint or powder for my complexion. Rouge is no good to colour the cheek. Healthy blood is the only beautifier. Exercise, walking, cycling, or horse- riding, is admirable. But, for people who can't get exercise of this sort, here is a little hint which may be useful in regard to a good complexion : . Take a nice, clean piece of india-rubber, and place it between the teefo. Then chew it for a quarter of an hour, twice a day. The exercise of the facial muscles will créate a good circulation of the blood, and a clear and healthy complexion will be the conse- quence. Of course, the same purpose would be served if people would only take the trouble to properly masticate their food. But they won't, hence the india-rubber is necessary. Tell your girl readers to try it.'

KID GLOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

KID GLOVES. , No one should -wear white or light,- ' ooloured gloves till they become very dirty'; it is bad economy. To clean soiled gloves, draw them on to your clean and quite dry hands, and if they have any stains needing special treatment have a little powdered Castile or other good powdered soap, and a piece of clean, fine flannel. Barely damp the flannel in warm water, then dip it in the   powdered soap and rub it on the stains, All stains must be treated in this way. before you commence to remove the general soil. For this have some finely-powdered pre- pared and sifted chalk, and a piece of soft new flannel, or, as some prefer, a pad of stale bread crumb, and gently rub the chalk over the gloves and you can make them look as good as new with care. If the white kid gloves are . very dirty,' have a little fresh milk in ono saucer and a piece of either brown Windsor, castilla , or glycerine soap in another saucer. Spread out the gloves smoothly on a clean towel, f...

LONDON FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

LONDON FASHIONS. London has brightened up again wonder- fully lately, and the sombre black has given way to rich-toned violets of various shades, and to brilliant scarlet, while the blaok dresses are relieved with the most wonderful applique work as well as with coloured trimmings. A black cashmere zibiline gown, for in- stance, displays for the adornment of its skirt-shaded purple lilies embroidered in silk, with white stalks and tendrils oî an exaggerated length. These were so inter- twined as to make a trimming of effeot and importance round the hem. In smaller design it was again to be seen on the sleeves, and on the revers of the loose fronts, these allowing of a very festive mauve spangled net waistcoat relieved with a pretty bow and fall of lace. Then another costume of note, which kept the above company, was a purple repp with the key pattern in ribbon-velvet trim- ming the skirt round the hips, and again across the back and down the side of tho pouch bodioe, which was attra...

A NOVEL PINCUSHION. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

A NOVEL PINCUSHION. , A friend, of mine, who is of an original turn of mind, has been exercising her in* genuity upon that trivial but absolutely in- dispensable article-a pin-cushion. As I had never seen anything like this partioular pincushion before, I took a good look at it, and discovered it to bo nothing more nor less than a common tea-strainer, glorified with gold paint and yellow satin ! The effect was really very pretty; and as I thought the pincushion would form a dainty accestory to the bright bedroom we were speaking of recently, I made a note of the details for your benefit. The tea-strainer was completely gilded over, a ball covered   with white net over yellow satin, and stuffed, I believe, with coffee-grounds, filling up the hollow. This ball was tacked in place     close to the frame of the strainer, the. rough part being, presumably, inside The handle 'was decorated with a bow of yellow satin     &...

SCIENCE. CORRODED WATER PIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

CORRODED WATER PIPES. if pipes'are not galvanised or otherwise protected from rustling,' they sometimes become corroded inside, the waterway being reduced by iron rust. In that case, the   pipes should be renewed, as it is very diffi- cult to clean off the rust. If obbtruction arises from something foreign which has gained access to the pipes, and cannot be removed by means of a plumber's forco pump, the pipes should be'disconnected, and a cable or wire passed through. A 8-in. rose above the end of the pipe would keep out floating matters, but the proper thing is to fix á cover to the cistern for keeping out anything objectionable, especially when the water is used for culinary purposes.

A VINDICATOR OF VEGETARIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

A VINDICATOR OF VEGETARIANISM:. A correspondent writes Apropos your recent comments 'concerning vegetarians, an acquaintance of mine, who lives entirely on fruit, even going without bread, has during the past thirty days also denied himself liquid in any form. Once aggressive he has become a quiet docile man, and in appearance thin, aged and infirm. He is rapidly becoming bald, and the finger on which he wears a ring is quite void of life, owing to lack of blood. He complains bitterly.'of the cold and walks with his head bowed down. He eats plenty and his fruit is varied. In spite of the apparent disadvantage pf his way of living, he says he would not rèturn to a meat diet.

TRAVELLER. BEFORE THE GRILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

BEFORE THE GRILLE. I was invited to pass a week in the Guest- house attached to the Abbey of the oldest but not- the strictest-of English-founded orders, where they pride themselves on keeping the same rules as were kept by the first community in the early part of the fifth century, and where they lead the same life with but few modifications-as was led by those cloistered maidens of Saxon days, lt was a sudden plunge from the whirl and turmoil of London dissipation to be shut in behind bars and chains, to spend hours in a stillness so intenso that it was broken but by one's own footfall, the solitude disturbed but by one s own shadow ; to be waited on by a soft-voiced, sweet-faced sister, robed in tho quaint garb of her order ; to be surroundod on all sides by mementoes of the end of humanity-death ; and to live in au atmos- phere unearthly in its cold calm peace . Of course, visitors are free to go in and out, at prescribed times ; but it is considered an act of courtesy in acce p...

CHAPTER III. A GREAT MAORI MEETING AND FEAST. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

, CHAPTER III. A GREAT MAORI MEETING AND FEAST   They had been a week on the farm and were dropping down to their respective places. Ambrose was almost a grown man, and felt equal to a man?s work. There were paddocks being cleared of the primeval forest, thick and dense in places, and some was open country covered with pig-fern, whioh made clearing comparatively easy, and the farm hands were slowly and steadily subordina- ting tho wilderness. Just at this time Campbell had instructions to get tenders for three or four miles of fencing-a considerable job ; and Ambrose, who had made the acquaintance of a young man who was their neighbor, had a talk with him over the mat ter, and decided if they could get the con- tract, he would, try his hand at fencing. They got the contract, and were told they wonld have to work hard to make wages. ' That was all right,' Brosy said, they would work hard, and pay something for the experience, perhaps. Charley Ward was the name of the son...

GOLD AND BLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

ran m ,nw.¡ai*<M»'>". --- ~ GOLD AND BLOOD. MANY years ago I know a man who expended great part of a large fortuno in . buying gold, in coin and in bars. This he melted, and with human blood and other unique ingredients, laboured secretly to prepare a mixture that should arrest all disease, renew vitality, and prolong life indefinitely. I need hardly say that he failed Not only did he fail, but one day an explosion took place in his laboratory which destroyed the fruits of his toil and left him senseless and badly wounded amid the wreck. The rest of his days were past in an asylum. Yet he was not the first man who tried that same experiment, not by thousands. To find the elixir of life was ono of the main purposes of the science of alchemy, the barbaric ancestor of the modern science of "chemistry. But all that is now discredited. No doctor or student of healing even pretends to possess or to seek an essence of life. What is undertaken, however, and successfully is to ...

THE HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

THE HAIR.   Respecting the hair, there is nearly always ' some fresh advice to be given, so ,that the subject can never be called an exhausted one. People are constantly writing to me asking what, simple remedy they can use to hide the appearance of grey hairs, whioh will show themselves at an earlier period of life than is to be desired. When those grey hairs do put in an ap pearanoe earlier than they should, there is   usually some active cause, suh as neuralgia, the nerves being in a bad state, or, perhaps a good deal of worry and mental anxiety ; therefore, the best remedy is to get at the root of the matter, and find a cure for the impaired state of the health. This is the surest way of checking their appearance, should they be occasioned by either of the things above mentionted. II. To find a harmless dye or restorer is not such an easy matter, and what will suit one person's hair is not at all likely to suit an- other's. One of the simplest things, b...

SHORT STORY A CONVERT OF THE MISSION. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

A. CONVERT OF THE MISSION. í> ' i. ; ' THE largest tent of tho Tanajaesa Camp .meeting was crowded to ifs utmost extont. The excitement of that dense mass was at its highest pitch. The Roverend Stephen Mas- terton, tho single erect, passionate figure of that confused medley of kneeling wor shippprs, had reached the culminating pitch of his irresistible exhortatory power. Sighs .and groans were beginning to respond to his appeals, when the reverend brother was seen to lurch heavily forward and fall to the ground. At firtt the effect was that of a part of his performance ; the groans redoubled, and twenty or thirty brethren throw themselves prostrate in humble imitation of the preacher. But Sister Deborah Stokes, perhaps through some special revelation of femine intuition, grasped the fallen man, tore lose his black Silk necktie, and dragged him free of the struggling, frantic crowd, whose paroxysms he had just evoked. How bei t he was pale and unconscious and unable to continue th...

MANY persons are under the impression that their elector's rights expired on December 31, 1896, but this is not so, as by an amendment act which became law in 1896, all rights issued before or since the passing thereof, unless con- celled in the prescribed manner, stand good until the end of the year 1900. Electors who have moved to a district other than that for which their right was issued should apply for a transfer of same after one month's residence in the new district.

CHAT WITH A FAMOUS BOXER. HIS BIGGEST BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

CHAT WITH A FAMOUS BOXER. | , HIS BIGGEST BATTLE. ^During the last few years, I have met many exponents of the fistic art, and only the other day it was my good fortune to .come across Mr. Beattie, whose ring experiences have been freely chronicled ii . the press. So said a representative of the Balmain Observer, who had called on the gentleman at his residence, 32 Brougham Street. Glebe, Sydney, to get some special information. " You must know, remarked Mr. Beattie ''that I have held the amateur lightweight championship, and, in my time, have fought most of the best men in the colony. When training for the lightweight championship| of the colony I broke down, of course through overtraining1. The very thought of a boxing glove or a punching-bag made me feel sick I abandoned all hope of the championship, and took a complete rest. My arms and legs had given way, as it were, and I felt it was about as much as I could do to walk up as far-as the park (close by), and sit down, I got into...
