The Sketcher. How I was Manicured. "Manicure and Pedicure on the First Floor." [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 February 1899

Ihe Sketcher. How i was Manicured. 'Manicure nnd Pedicure on the First Floor.' These were the words which kept staring me in the face whilst. I was being shaved one morning iu a shop not. a hundred miles away from Kegent-streel. At first I took no notice of them, and it Wi only because they ' caught iuv eye' whenever 1 looked up thnt their meaning was at last Impressed upon me. Of course, I had a hazy idea of what manicuring and pedicuring were, but I had never personally undergone the processes. Suddenly It occurred to me, Why shouldn't 1 V I was not due in tfluut streut till midday, and 1 might obtain some of (hat must desirable commodity — ' copy'— out of the interview , I would. And so when the shaving was completed 1, upon going out of the .shop into the M.rcet, instead of hailing a hansom, or climbing ou the top of a 'bus, turned slwrply to the right, aud vang a bell at a side door. It was speedily opened by a lady, who invited me to come upstairs ; and who, Iu my surprise, ev...

Serum Inoculation. Serum inoculation, or as It Is colled In Prance 'swotheruplo,' continues to be held In favour, and its application to cases of diphtheria may now be regarded as an accepted fact. A report of MM. Herlc.ourt and Ch. Illchet to the Aca demic des Sciences mentions three cases o£ an even more remarkable cure, that of cancel', as due to this system. The original virus was obtained by soaking an excised sarcoma of the leg-bone in water. With this three animals were Inoculated, but fulled to show any mark ed reaction. The Ferum of the animals was used, however, In two persistent cases of external tumour, being: Injected round the spot, and hi one case of In ternal tumour. In ,all three cases, after about forty days' treatment, the tumour begnn to shrink, an-! finally disappeared, leaving: a ompHratively harmless In duration.

AN EARL'S BRAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 February 1899

AN EARL'S BRAVKUY. A story is told of an earl of Alsatia, sur oamed, on account of his great strength, Linn, who was a favourite with Edward 111. of England, and much envied, as favourites are always sure to be, by the rest of the courtiers. «jn one occasion, wnen me King wasao sent, some noblemen maliciously instigated the queen to wake trial of the noblu blood of the favourite, by causing a lion to be let I006C upon him,saying,aecorUingto the popu lar belief, that if the earl was truly noble, the lion wonld not touch him. It being customary with the earl to rise at break of day, before any other person in (he palace was stirring,:* lion was let loose during the night and turned into the lower court. When the earl came down in the morning, with nothing more than a dressing-gown on, hi: was met by the lion, bristling his hair,and growling destruction between his teeth. Tho earl, not in the least daunted, called out, with a strong voice, ' Stand, you dog !' At these words tlie lion c...

THE HIGH SHERIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 February 1899

THE HIGH SHERIFF. TheJudge is met by theHigh Sheriff of the county, whose pleasing duty it is to provide my lord with a carriage' an i other luxuricB at hie expense. How highly this privilege is valued may be estimated by the extraordin ary number of illnesses and other disabilities which, by some strange coincidence, beem to fall on persons nominated to this high oftice — in fact, this functionary is well worthy of attention. He is a very self-sacrificing pur son indeed. Like the prisoner, he gets absolutely nothing out of it all, except the honour and glory.' For this he looks after the Judge's lodgings, for this he conducts him to and from Court, and sits with him there, striving, as lie watches the proceed; ings, to show his indifference to the stuffiness of the air: and for the same consideration he undertakes to see the sentences of the law carried out, to attend executions, and if, haply, he cannot (ind a substitute, to do the hanging himself. It is true (hat time and custum ...

A TERROR FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 February 1899

A TERROR FOR WOMEN. Tho minister of GroBsmichael, about the middle of the eighteenth century, iB said to have thus delivered himself:—' I see a man aneath that laft wi' his hat on. I'm sure ye're clear of the sough o' the door. Keep aft ysr banuat, Thamas, and if yer bare nnw hn nnnld. v*- matin fret*, n irrp.v i-mr-ait. wig like msel'.' The women, on the oilier hand, seem to have rendered themselves liable to rebuke from the pulpit for ' keip ing their pleydiB about their heids '—the Kirk Session of Dundonald suggesting that this was done as ' a cleuck to their ulnip ing in tyino of sermon.' The threats of fine and imprisonment not proving elticacious, the Kirk Session of Monitieth, in 1643, iB recorded to have given the ' bedall 5s. to buy ane pynt of tir to put upon the women that held the plaid above their head in ttie church.' ?

TRADES OF THE BLIND. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 February 1899

TRADES OF THE BLIND. The principal tradeB followed by tbe blind are basket-making, mat-inaldng, brush making, and upholstery. At basket-making, with tbe best of work, the average earnings are Dot more than 15s. per week. That ib the highest possible figure at which they can be placed. Mat-making is hopeless; it is impossible to make anything like a ' living wage ' at it. In some parts of the country brush-making is fairly good. When 1 was in Scotland, says Mr. Purse, of Manchester, the average earnings of the blind workers engaged at it were about 17s. per week. In Bradford, I believe, the average wages are only a little lower— 16s, per week. As for upholstery, if women were constantly em ployed at it — which they generally are got — they could earn about 10s. per week. Ethel: Hike this dress very much. It is so delightfully light. But where aro the pockets, i Dressmaker (handing her two small silken nags): Here they are. You'll have to carry them in your hands. There's not room in ...

NOT TO BE PUT OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 February 1899

NOT TO BE PUT OCT. The late George Dawson, the celebrated preacher of Birmingham, hated to be inter rupted by a baby, or to see before him the old lady who persisted in fumbling over her Bible during tbe first minutes of the ser mon, pottering over the text; or i lie young gentleman who always dr«)i»B-3 his cane with a clatter before entering his pew. But his special aversion was a late comer. His favourite mode of welcoming the sinner was to stop short and look at his victim until he reached his place and blushed, or until he hung his head. Once, at a lecture, however, be met his match. A solicitor of the town was the offender, and Dawson turned on Bilence and the eyes, as usual Unluckily, the wretch was wearing creak ing boots, George's Bpeuial avcision, and this made him more severe than ever. To make the matter worse, 'our hero ' made for a seat near the platform, and he was provok ingly at his leisure. On reaching hie seat, instead of dropping into it dead still, he fussed abou...
