THE HISTORY OF A SCAR.. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

TIIE HISTORY OF A SCAR.. On the back of my right hand — just about tho middle of it — there is a small soar, half as big as a threepenny piece, perhaps. You would never notice it unless I showed it to you, and oven then you would have to look sharp to see it. But it's there, all the same, and will bo until the hand is returned to dust. it dates back -torty years, that scar does. Going home from school one day another boy and I quarrelled and fought. Strange to say, it wasn't about a girl either. Anyway, he drow his jack-knifo and stabbod me in the baok of the right hand. Tlie wound, I ro member, was slow to heal. It was sore and inflamed for months, and hardly a day but something hit it, or I knocked it against some thing, and so made it worse. My whole avail able body appeared to be concentrated iu that sore. You know how such things are. They are like boils, and if there is any comfortable spot to have a boil thero ^re loads of money waiting for the fellow who disoovers it. Lately...

THE EMPEROR OF CHINA'S HAREM. A Man of Large Heart. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

THE EMPEROR OF CHINA'S HAREM. A Man of Large Heart. When the present Emperor of China reached a marriageable state the Empress Dowager picked out for him his No. 1 wife, whom he married, and with whom, it is said, he has lived ever since in great happiness. The next thing to be done was to select tor him his secondary wives, or whom he is said to possess about six hundred. An imperial ' secondary wife ' take3 the place in Chinese etiquette of gentlemen and ladies in waiting, lords of the bod-chamber, lords of the robe, lackeys, and, to a certain extent, even1 servants. For this reason it is necessary to keep a regiment of them, to. be prepared for any contingency which may arise. The applicant must be young, between thirteen and sixteen years of age. She must not be too short nor too tall, neithor too thin nor too stout. Her skin must be smooth, soft, and free from blemishes, eruptions, or birthmarks.

CHARACTER IN FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

.CHARACTER IN FEET. I am delighted (says a correspondent) to make known the interesting information that 'if a woman wishes to read the lines in her own pretty feet ' it is important to remember that ' a full well-rounded heel denotes good breeding, and a straight one just the opposite;' also, that when ' the heel forms a kind of arch with the instep it is a sure sign of blue blood, and if . it shouia extend Denina to any marked degree, you can make sure that great force of character goes with it. The arched and high instep,' continues my pedal authority,' acts aB an unfailing indication of a long lifte of ancestors, together with tho refinement of a temperament, innate delicacy of feeling, and true gentleness of character.' So look yo that you possess an arched and high instep of the character described, or of a surety complete happi ness will not be yours.

SAILING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

SAILING NOTES. 1 1 (By ' Weather-Eye.') The Brisbane boats carry what is known as tho dagger oentre-board, which, I believe, owes its origin to tho old country. It is similar , in shape to tho board used by the Sydney boats, but is fastened in the fore part of the box at the ba90, and is lowered length wise by means of a tackle with that whioh, in our orait, would db ttie neaa, or top, aown wards. The members of the Prinoo Alfred Yacht Club are to bo congratulated upon tho active interest they are taking in the Intercolonial 22-footor racing.

WATERCRESS AND TYPHOID PEYER. A Startling Statement. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

WATERCRESS AiND TYPHOID FEVER. A Startling Statement. Dr. W. Veedon, the medical officer of health for Lambeth, on November 21 (says the St. James' Gazette), made a startling report to the Sanitary and Public Health Committee of the parish, the facts of which, he said, were of widespread impor tance in view of the large consumption of watercress in the metropolis. While in vestigating the source of infection in several outbreaks of typhoid, the doctor's' suspicion fell upon watercress as the in fecting agent, and through the courtesy of the tradesman who sold this edible he was able to trace it to its place of growth! on the outskirts of South London. A general survey of the large sewage farm in which the watercress beds were situated could not fail to impress the ordinary observer of the magnitude of tho demands on the breakfast-tables of London for watercress. Through all the sectional beds, however, a gentle current of water was maintained, and analysis demonstrated that this wat...

THE BALMAIN FERRY SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

THE BALMAIN FERRY SERVICE. As was first announced in the columns of the Sunday Times, the Balmain Ferry Company has found it necessary to discontinue opera tions, and will shortly cease to compete for the ferry traffic of the district. For this result it is but too evident that the com pany has only to blame its stiff-necked policy in refusing to listen to the reason able demands of its patrons, with the result that a co-operative company was established, to which tho public trans ferred their patronage. There can hardly be a doubt that this result will have a salutary effect in other cases where a similar state of things may pre vail, and should serve to show the folly of adhering to the policy of high fares and big profits. In this case the old company had a monopoly which they pro bably thought 'could not be successfully assailed, but in setting public opinion at defiance and arbitrarily refusing to reduce their rates, they made a fatal mistake. Equally gratifying is tho success ...

FRUIT FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

FRUIT FACTS. j Hebe is a double-edged fact for fruit growers and fruit consumers to ponder over. In the Fruit Exchange on Thursday grapes were unsaleable at one penny half penny a pound, and, according to an evening paper's report, large quantities were thrown away. On the same day grapes of exactly similar quality were offering in the Sydney shops at sixpence a pound— no less than four times tho whole Bale price. Comment would be superfluous.

ROSE'S RUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895

ROSE'S ItUSE. i Thebe is one man in Melbourne who has I been kicking himself all the week. This is Mr. F. W. Eose, a tobacconist, of Fitzroy who displayed in his window a card ' smuggled Cavitas for sale.' The Customs officers proceeded to the shop, and seized 970 Cavitas. Jttose explained that the an nouncement was only a ruse, but anyway, he is in the sonp., If his explanation is correct, ho makes himself liable to have tho goods forfeited, aud to pay a penalty of £2i. On the othei- hand, if no duty has been paid the goods die liable to forfeiture, with a penalty of ;S100. There are a few people going about Sydney with rolls of ' ship's Barge' and boxes of cigars which they give you to understand have never paid duty, but which are really inferior goods, which have passed tho Customs in due course. There are numbers of people stupid enough to believe these stories, and to purchase the- articles at a price equal to twice their value. The Melbourne example might be applied, with, ad...
