usEFiix mrrra. Clean picture glasses with a piece of rag dipped in methylated spirits. Polish them -with a wash-leather. To wash varnished paper, use tepid water and any good soap. It will stand the treatment usually applied to paint. Soapsuds are useful in the garden, where they serve as manure for plants, and are especially good for rose trees. They are also good for house plants, but should not be poured on the leaves. A simple barometer is secured by get ting a largo glass jam jar and an old oil flask. Fill the former three parts full of water, and after cleaning the flask put it neck downwards into tho jar. Tho finer tho weather the higher tho water will rise in the flask. This is a very useful barometer, but it is not a smart-looking .one, so its best place Is the kitchen. An elder-down quilt may bo washed at homo in a lather made with bolted soap and warm water. Do not rub tho quilt, but squeezo it about in the suds with the hands. Rinse carefully, add ing a little borax to t...

Free the fish carefully from skin and bone , and break up into flakes. I Arrange these neatly In the centra of a fire-proof dish, or shallow pie-dish. Take I the potatoes, mash woll, If not already | | done, mix with the beaten egg, the but ter and seasoning. Heap all this roughly round the fish.

Three men named Bailey, Brown, and Macdonald were covered a thousand feet deep from, the surface, but the broken roof timbers formed a shelter, and protected them from being crushed. Rescue parties, boring for In dications of ttto result of tho accident, struck this cavity, and heard sounds In dicating that the men were alive. For six weeks they were fed through a water-pipe communicating with the sur face, and wore able to talk to the res cuers.

SEEDLESS LEMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

SEEDLESS LEMONS. The arrival of the seedless lemons in "London from California attracted con siderable attention. The fruits wera rapidly disposed of at fancy values. Nevertheless (writes the , "Standard")! the seedless lemony did not attract crowds, as did the arrival of the famous Spencer seedless apples, which reached London a few years ago, and the repre sentatives of the Italian and Spanish lemon shippers and others interested in the sale of lemons of the old type are not afraid of the competition. Though the new fruits are' pre'jty, juicy, and of fine flavor yet they arq higher priced than the ordinary lemons, and will probably always- continue so, on account of the long journoy they have to make before reaching the Brit« ish markets. Further, the advantage of seedlessness does not apply in tho case of the Jemon as it does in the apple because most lemons sold are not eaten whole as apples are. the juice chiefly be ing expressed for culinary and drinking purposes. Still it Is ...

Sunday Reading. M[?] [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

I Sunday Reading. (BY JA/.AH.) We are all idealists to some ex tent and in some direction-and it is well to have ail ideal, provided it be one of the right soit. For that which a man considers the most desirable he naturally gives direction to his actions, forming those habits which tend to make up his charac ter. Since therefore an upright and noble character is essential for a man's well-being and usefulness, it behoves him to aspire to the highest ideals. No man who is true to him self will be satisfied with a low standard of life and conduct. His aspirations will be towards that which will elevate and enrich his manhood. His. tendencies will be directed to that which is true, beautiful, and of good report-to that which is best, or, in other words, to all that makes for righteousness. But ideals, no mat te/" how lofty they limy be in them selves, if they remain nothing more than ideals, are-to all interests and purposes useless-To be of . any practical service they ought to be in...

DISCOURAGING IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 3 April 1908

DISCOURAGING IMMIGRA TION. IT has long been evident that a num ber of persons in this State, many of them endeayouring to poso as friends of immigration, are bent upon spread ing unfavourable reports in regard to the conditions and prospects of their own country. It is difficult- to under stand the motives that actuate all these traducers of the State, but there can be no doubt as to the damage that tliey do. An instance has just come under the notice of the Intelligence Department, in which a family in England who had been nominated for assisted passages, their fares being paid by a relative in New South Wales, ana who had made all arrange ments to come out, have written out to their nominator that in conse quence of the unfavourable reports that havo reached them regarding Australia, they do not consider it advisable to break up their home in England for the uncertainties of this country. The nomination has therefore been withdrawn, and Now South Weles has lost a family of very de...
