Domestic Hints and Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
Domestic Hints and Recipes. Try turpentine for grease on velvet or cloth. The stewpan that boils much wastes the flavour. Remove ink from boards with muriatic acid, afterwards washing with water. A house is no house unless it contains food and fire for the inind as well as the body. ' Try one ounce of borax, two ounces of, shellac, one pint of boiling -water, for a glue or cement. Cucumber is said to be efficacious in destroying cockroaches. Pieces should be laid about the floor and shelves. A little alcohol will do wonders in brightening glass. Turpentine is excellent for -washing sinks which have become dull and dirty. Remove marking ink from linen with a solution of cyanuret of potassium, applied with a camel's hair brush, and rfaeed m cold water.
"The Wealth and Progress of New South Wales." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
'The Wealth and Progress of New South Wales.' From the office of the Government Statistician we have received a copy of the seventh issue of Tho Wealth and Progress of New South Wales. In hia preface Mr. Coghlnn pays the matter contained in former issues has been enlarged. The figures, except in special cases, have been limited to the ne.riod covered by ten years. ' Considerable atten tion,' writes Mr. Coghlau, ' has been bestowed upon the chapter devoted to the history of in dustrial progress, as, without a knowledge of past industrial conditions no right understanding can be arrived at of those now existing. Much space has also been given to the important question of land alienation ; the history of agrarian legislation has been traced from the foundation of the colony, and the present condition of settlement minutely described. The particulars furnished with regard to public finance will be found entirely recast, and divested as far a3 possible of tho technicalities. To the secti...
Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
Federation. The Minister of Works states that on Saturday morning Dr. Quick called on him and had a chat about federation, and left a copy of his bill for Mr. Lyne to read. On the first blush of the thing Mr. Lyne says— according to the Herald— he thinks the outlines of Dr. Quick's proposal are good, but he does not like to say anything very definite till he has read the bill. But it seems to him that before anything oan be done there are two or three difficulties to be faced, but they can be overcome. In regard to electing repre sentatives, Mr. Lyne thinks the best way would be to bunch a certain number of electorates together, each buuch to return one representative. Then again, the cost of a general election is about .£15,000, and a considerable sum of money would, therefore, have to be voted before Dr. Quick's pro posal could be carried out, though it might nofc cost each colonv quite as much as .£15.000. There is one thing to be remembered, Mr. Lyne says, and that is that we ha...
GOULBURN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
GOULBUAN RIVER. On Friday last we had a splendid storm, which gave us 119 points of rain. It was very much wanted, as fruit and corn were ripening to:- fast under tho intense heat we have lately experienced. We heard a lady from the north of Queensland assert that it was far hotter about Christmas time hero than she ever experienced it there. During last year we had 32-56in. of rain. The vineyards, where not damaged by recent mnderstorms, are reported to look very well, and the return of wine is expected to bo large. Notwithstanding the ruinous prices obtainable, fat stock keep moving to market. We saw a fine mob of fat cattle and crossbred wethers yesterday from Mrs. Simpson's Emu Vale estate, for Maitland markets. Though there is no sign of an election for months to come, candidates keep announcing themselves, and speaking in the various centres of population ; but we hope the electors have too much sense to promise their support to anyone coming forward now._ It is more than prob...

LATEST CABLISEAIS. [Bt Telegraph from the Press Telegraph Association.] London. Mondav. A murder mystery is reported from Paris. The )ody of a gentleman which had been recognised as that of a traveller by the Lyons express train, was found on the railway line with marks of violence on 'the body, clearly showing that murder had been committed, and that the object was robbery. The crime must have been perpetrated in a railway carriage, and the body thrown out of the doorway. The police are investigating the mystery. At a Papal Consistory to be held late in February next, Bishops Jacobini Satolli, late Papal Envoy to America, Nocella Fausti Steinheuber, and Salvati will be created Cardinals. The attacks made in the columns of the Investors' Review by Mr. A. J. Wilson, on the way the Bank of England conducts its affairs, have called forth a reply from the Times.

MERRIWA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
MERRIWA. We have experienced intense heat for the past Pew weeks whicn was showing its influence upon the country around, grass and herbage becoming parched up. Oa Friday we were favoured by a thunderstorm which was accompanied by some welcome rain, one inch being registered. The weather since that time being very changeable, with much promise of a further downpour which will be very acceptable as a refresher to the grass and herbage, which would grow vigorously with necessary moisture at this time of year. The live stock continues in good condition, although feed had become very dry. The maize crop requires showers occasionally and will be benefited by the passing showers. The wheat crop has given a good return, the quality of the grain being much better than the previous crop and all harvested without loS3 or damage. The Merriwa Company's new roller mill has proved a great boon to the farmers as well as a benefit to consumers. The machinery being of latest improved roller system t...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. The miners at the War&tah pit yesterday morn ing went to the pit, and on hearing the decision of the management not to pay more than 23 lOd per ton, at once descended and biought up their tools. The district around the pit is already in a state o£ destitution, and what it will be_ like after a period of idleness can better be imagined than described. One miner who is known as a thoroughly good man informs us that he has had scarcely two days a week on which he has worked during the year, and if he had not had some bush work he must have done as many others, viz., gone to the wall. He assures us that the pit is the most difficult of any he yet worked in. Altogether the prospects of the Charlestown district are not bright. The dairies around the city came in for a deal of handling at the meeting of the City Council yester day, and they are to fill up their wells and get water from some other source. The discussion at times became very animated, and many of the alder...

Here's a State of Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 10 January 1894
Here's a State of Things. Science has diminished hope, knowledge has destroyed onr illusions, and experience has deprived us of interest. Here, then, is the authorized dic tionary of discontent : What is creation? Afailnre. What is life ? A bore. What is man ? A fraud. What is woman ? Both a fraud and a bore. What is beauty ? A deception. What is love ? A disease. What is marriage ? A mistake. What is a wife ? A trial. What is a child ? A nuisance. What is the devil ? A fable. What is good ? Hypocrisy. What is evil ? Detection. What is wisdom ? Selfishness. What is happiness ? A delusion. What is friendship ? Humbug. What is generosity ? Imbecility. What is mpney ? Everything. And what is everything ? Nothing. Were we, perhaps, not happier when we were monkeys ?
The Terror of Compositors. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 10 January 1894
The Terror of Compositors. Talking of the handwriting of men of genius and famous authors, many celebrities have written vile hands, and there are notable men to-day whose caligraphy is almost illegible. That same Joaguin Miller, whose 'Sengs of the Sunland' made a text recently for cigarette paper, scrawls in the most haphazard kind of fashion. I have before me a bit of his manuscript, and it is in a sort of sense un canny to think that this ill-formed, rambling, knock-kneed kind of scribble is really poetry ; see it in type you can hardly believe that the well turned rhyme and the happy thought have been disguised in that blotted, scrubby patch of some thing that looks like writing. Carlyle's manuscript was cramped and crabby. ' What, have you got that man here ?' exclaimed a Scotch compositor, who had obtained a situation in London and found his first ' take' of ' copy' was a page of Carlyle. 'Why I just fled from Scotland to get away from him. Francis Jeffrey wrote a miserable h...
