Love and Gold. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Love and Gold. Gretta Thome's undo had diod and loft her 70,000 dols., and, regarding the lessons she had learned in the past with a sort of bitter hatred, Gretta plunged into magnificence with a feeling of despair. But at church the truthful eyes of Mr. Clayton, the young pastor, seemed to haunt her with their reproachful glances, and she tried not to see him, or notice his look, but it followed her home, and all the week she could think of nothing else. Every Sunday it was much tbe same, and once when Lizzie Grey very kindly begged leave to introduce Mr. Clayton, Gretta lifted her brows in a haughty stare and said : ' No, thank you. I have lectures enough already. ' Dear Gretta, I wish you wouldn t talk so. I am sure Mr. Clayton would not lecture you, '{Lizzie said sweetly. ' Wouldn't he ? Don't he give .us.'most scathing lectures every Sunday morning ?' As Gretta turned she saw the subject of their conversation at her side, with a pale face and reproachful eyes. She knew that he ...

Her studies must be interrupted upon no account at this time ?' ?? Not even by her father's death asked Atkins. ' Sir Harold mentioned to me his desire to have her at home — ' ' I believe, by the terms of tho will, that I am mistress here during Neva's minority. Let me tell you, Mr. Atkins, that I am my step-daughter's sole personal guardian, and that I will submit to no dictation whatever in my treatment of the girl.

Does Human Nature Alter? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Does Human Nature Alter? [Br Andiiew Lang.] The first of modern historians, Thucydides, remarks that his study of events in Greece will illustrate human nature ' as long as the nature of man is the same.' It is tolerably clear that, in his opinion, human nature will always be the same, and everyone who re flects at all must often ask himself, Was Thacydides right ? The great political and social changes of the world do not disprove his theory. Men revered the chief or the king, wera loyal to the clan or the nation. Now the clan, 'as an ideal, is dead, the nation is dying ; it is to the trades union and the clasB leader that the majority are loyal. But this shows no change in human nature ; it only shows a change in men's views of their own interest ; n chsnge in organisation. Again, nothing is more common, or appa rently more just, than tho assertion that we must judg-* the people of the paat by the current morality and practice of their age. It is added that morals and practice hav...

The Perils of Kissing. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

The Perils of Kissing. I Bacteriologists have added many i terrors to life but perhaps the most serious of all is that which has recently been proclaimed by Professor Miller ot Berlin. The practice of kissing, according to this savant, is a dangerous one, leading to' tho propagation of various kinds of disease, such as pneumonia, tonsilitis, diphtheria, catarrh, consump tion, inflammation of the mouth aud throat, and various others. All these maladies, we are told have their origin in certain bacteria tvliich develop in the mouth, and are transferred from ono mouth , j ''iu ''so oy inhaling the breath. For some years past Professor Miller has been collecting and isolating such germs as livo in the mouth, throat, and aasal cavities, and nameB twenty-two, all distinct and all injurious. Though he does not go to the extent of asserting that disease is mvariably spread in the way sug gested, lie aops say, and cites numerous cases as proot, that it is very often communicated by the act o...

' The paper waa based ! on a study of the advertisement columns of the Western Daily Press, and it was of much interest. We give an extract. After a happy allusion to the variety of things ' wanted,' the paper proceeded :— And then there is the kind of man and woman that wants a situation, or is wanted to fill a situa tion. One advertisement says ' they must be tall, reliable, | strong, good tempered, not drink beer, early risers, and have no followers.' One adver tisement struck me very much, and I thought there would be a rush of applicants. The advertiser wanted 'a confident young man.' A man with so very much confidence in himself that nobody else had any confidence in him ! One asked for a man who could ' push' — push oil. ' Aye !' thought I, ' that's a ? pusher' that's wanted.

Dumas and his Economical Son. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Dumas and his Economical Son. .aiexauaer uumas.cne great Jb'rench story writer, was fond and proud of his son Alexander, who also became a famous author. Hia regard for him was increased apparently by the fact that the son had a very good appreciation of the value of money— a quality which the father did not possess in the slightest degree. A recent writer of recollections relates that he once visited Dumaa at St. Germain. He had just been bitten in the hand by his doc and was unable to write, but was dictating a novel. His son went out as the visitor came in. ' Alex ander has just left me,' said the father. ' What a good fellow that boy is 1 Just fancy, this morn ing I received six hundred and fifty francs. He said to me, ' I'll take fifty francs of it.' I didn't hear and thought he was going to leave me fifty So I called out, ' Hold on 1 Let me have one hund red at least 1' ' But I tell ycu I'm only going to take fifty!' he called out.

Advice to an Engaged Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Advice to an Engaged Man. I If you think a woman is any weaker minded than a man, stop where you are. If you intend to treat yourself any better than you treat; your wife, don't take one. If you suppose that running the house consists in paying the bills, don't undertake it. If you have an idea that you are too good for a picked up dinner, remain a bacholor. If you have found it a hard task to be happy yourself, don't try to make any one elso happy. If you have choren a pretty woman without regard to her other qualities, halt; you are on tho wrong road. It is said that the practice of the wife assuming the husband's name at marriage originated from a Roman custom and became the common custom after the Roman occupation. Thus Julia and Octavia, married Pompey and Cicero, were called by the Romans Julia of Pompey and Octavia of Cicero, and in later times married women in most European countries signed their names in the same manner, but omitted the of.' Against this view may be mention...

CLEANING THE POULTRY-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

CLEANING THE POTTKTBYHOTrSE. b. writer says : wnn some, cue matter ot cleaning out the poultry-house is not an im portant duty. Once a week, twice a month, or as often as it becomeB foul is the rule, but . it is not always easy to determine when the . work Bhould be done by observation. Much depends on the manner of cleaning, the absorbents used, and the number of birds in the house. Then again, the weather should be consulted. If the air is cold and dry, there will sometimes be no odour arising from the droppings, and the birds will not then be very uncomfortable when the droppingB are allowed to remain, but nothing more conduces to dampness and disease than a floor covered with filth. Unless Bome absorbent be used, the work of cleaning the poultry house will be difficult. The object should be to prevent the droppings from adhering £o the floor, which should be of boards, and tight, as a wooden floor is warm in winter, can be swept ?with a- broom, and is therefore more easily clean...

LARGE RETURNS FROM DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

i K . liAEG-E BETUBNS FB05I. DAIEX COWS. In- Scotland returns are expected from ,. cows in milk that few English dairy farmers would think of obtaining. At a meeting of . farmers that was held in Glasgow one of the speakers, who is an experienced dairy farmer, gave it as his deliberate opinion that a well fed and well-selected cow should give a return of £35 per annum. He estimated an average production ot nearly 1,000 gallons of milk per cow per annum. Probably he was speak- . ing of Ayrshires, but even with the moat libe ral system of feeding and the most careful management I doubt if there be many amongst tbe best dairy cattle of Lancashire or Cheshire that would reach this high standard. With regard to feeding for milk it was re commended to give 51b. bean meal per cow, scalded before being mixed with other food. This as a daily ration when the animals are on grass, and in addition all the scalded beewers' grains the cowb would eat. In the autumn the ration should be changed by ...
