SKETCHER. THE VOX HUMANA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

^THE VOX HUMANA. . When Hopkins was organist at St. Abed T f liego's Oliuroh, ho gave a concert for the benefit of the Sunday School. Hopkins ?would fib pometimea, and he had told some of his brother organists that he had a vox humana stop in his organ, which, as a mat- ter of tact, ho had not. As several of them were coming round to the concert-, Hopkins determined to prevent the'ir detecting the deception ; so he engaged a friend of his who sang tenor down at the negro minstrels to come up and get into the organ euee and sing. Tt was arranged that Hopkins was to give a certain signal and that th« minstrel was to tune up and warble an air while Hopkins went through the motions of the keys. When the concert came off, the scheme worked splendidly. Everybody exolaimed, * How beautiful !' 'Sounds exactly like a human voice.' Then there was an encore, and another air was sung* Ri ir ht in the middle of it the vox bumana stopped sud- denly. Then it was heard using the most dreadful langu...

CHINESE FORTUNE JUGGLER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

CHINESE FORTUNE JUGGLER. In every Chinese oommunity there will be found one or moro soothsayers, or fortune tellers, who, in return for a small ooin, will send a fate-seeking Chinaman away oithor happy or miserable. The Chinese quarter , in New York supports three of these fortune , . jugglers, who manage to make a fairly good living out of their patrons. In that country the soothsayer is not so important a person- . age among Chinamen as he is in China, for j the influence of the 'Melican' man has af footed even stolid John. Many of them boast of their indifference to the auguries of the 'luck' stioks. In China the lower olasses , \ never take any step of importance without consulting their favourite soothsayer, so that he exercises considerable influenoe among his onstomeis. The Chinese festival on their New Year's Day is the great day to take a peep into the future, and the Chinese como into New York from all the neighbour ing towns whioh are not strong enough in Chinamen to supp...

HOUSEKEEPER. TO GLAZE AND STIFFEN SHIRT FRONTS, COLLARS, AND CUFFS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

-? TO GLAZE AND STIFFEN SHIRT FBONTS, COLLARS, AND CUTTS. Perhaps the following is the most sioiple, aa well as the moat certain, method in its results for beginners to try their hands upon. The amono r of Btarch must, of course, depend on the amount of work you have got to do. Fut the starch into a spotlessly olean pan or basin, ponr on a little water, and mix into a smooth paste with a flat piece of wood. There must be no lamps left. Then dtir in the remainder of the cold water till you get it to what will make the staroh of proper conuistenoy, stirring well all the time. Having mixed it, put the Btarch on the fire, and let it boil for about 15 minutes. Then for tho glaze, stir the boiling staroh with a paraffin candle-do not overdo the paraffin and you may add a little blue water to correct the rather yellow hue. Strain the staroh after boiling. For collars, cuffs, and shirt fronts you will need a good thick, but not too thiok, staroh. Rub the staroh thor- oughly into the shirt f...

GABDENIKTG. Manure vacant grouud dorins: frosty weather when tho surt'tice.soil is hard enough to uphold a wheelbarrow. By this means the work is done with less labour, oleaner, and expeditiously.

Those who purchase manure will also do well to arrange for its delivery during similar frosty weather, especially in instances where the material has to bo wheeled in from roads through front gardens, &o.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. 1 Tho simplest method of sharpening a razor is to pat it for half an how: in water, to whioh has been added some mnriatio or sui« fihurio aoid, then lightly wipe it off, after a ew hours well strop it. The aoid supplies the plaoo of a whetstone by corroding the whole surface uniformly, so that nothing further than a smooth surface is necessary. Tho proonsa never injures good blades, and frequently much improves ono that has been badly hardened. Tho samo mode of sharpen- ing would be found oepooially advantageous for sicklos and soythos In furnishing it is best to ohoose the paper bofore the paper is laid on the walls or the carpet soleoted. Wall-colouring has moro to do with tho appearance of a home than ia usually imagined.

DISSATISFACTION AMONG WOOD-CARTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

DISSATISFACTION AMONG WOOD-CARTERS. For some time considerable dissatisfaction has prevailed among the wood-carters of the district, whose wood is consigned from Liverpool railway station to Sydney for sale, owing to shortage in the return weights, and on Monday evening a meeting (convened by the Mayor at their request) was held in the Council Chambers, when the question was fully discussed. Mr. Clark pointed out that the Mayor had been re- quested to convene the meeting with a view to placing before the Railway Commissioners the serious and continuous losses suffered by wood-carters through shortage of weight of trucks of wood sent to Sydney for sale. The Mayor said it would be necessary to place the complaints in some definite form. Several cases were then instanced by those present and Alderman C. A. Scrivener sug- gested that a few of them be selected and placed before the Commissioners. The follow- ing instances were then selected: By Mr. Clark:-Truck 6951, consigned to Little ...
