A TIGER'S SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

I A TIGERS SPRING. The strength of m tiger ia its dying straggle is seid to be almost fabulous, writes Hiss Marrystt in a letter from India, and she goes on to describe a very distressing occurrence which took place in the Bandypoor jangle, by which Captain H.-, aide-de-camp to the Governor of Madras, lost Ids life. Captain H-, whilst staying at the banga low, on a journey to or from the hills, beard that a large tiger which had done great mischief in the neighbourhood was still larking io tile surrounding jangle.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

BUCKINGHAM PALACE. The grounds of Buckingham Palace, says the " Boston Berala," are bat little known to the public ; yet directly in the heart of the great city there is a carden beautifully laid out and baring a lake of fire acres. A bread terrace runs along the back of the palace, loo kl og orer 1 tiie gardens, with their variety ot fcr-ea and grassy lawas. Ia rame parts the scene is quite sylvan, the trees having been planted with a view to exclude the sight of builaings ss mach as possible. Yet above all this rer cal solitude is beard the rush and roar that never cease to remind the Beyal occupants that London is around them. The Queen, it is said, cannot rest in Buckingham Palace, and like many of her sen ii ti re subjects has an attack ef insomnia whenever she strikes the town. But Backing ham Palace, with all ita art treasures, is rather too splendid a place to te a mere pied-a-terre. It deserres to be lived in or to bs thrown open to the nation, at a museum of curiosities an...

Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

Philosophy. Philosophy is a code of reasons In vented to make a poor man glad he Ls poor and to keep a rich man from being discouraged just because he is rich. Philosophy is a nice thing to read in the parlour after business hours, when you have on your slippers and are en joying a fine cigar, but it is out of place in the mind of a man who has to meet a sight draft iu two days or be closed out under the hammer. Philosophy teaches us that the only enjoyments are those of the vaind. Enjoyments of the mind are well and good, but rüM" _ ? mà walking over * snowdrifts for ten cow 1 hours would say that enjoyments fl of the mind were not " in it" compared ?-_fl with buckwheat cakes and~friéd~chickeh ~1 when be got home. An eminent gentle- ^fl man named Emerson, who is dead now, and who was somewhat given to the use of long words, used to sit in au arbor of Concord grapes and write philo sophy, which is now printed in red books that sell quite readily to college students and young ministe...

Until the last few years   the deceased was almost unknown to those       outside the district, but since that time she has, on account of her great age been spoken of and written of in newspapers all over the colony. She was born at Cornwallis, near     Windsor, on December 26th (Boxing Day)       in the year 1806, being at the time of her death 93 years and 9 months old.

A New Kind of Album Something Thal «ri* Wnlíe Ven »it lp 'and Get Up The familiar alarum is no longer good enough to get the transatlantic sluggard -If such a one there be-out of bed in the morning (says the "Pall Mall Ga zette"). Alarums are always the same thing, and you get used to them, and they take no rise out of you. The telephone is different. You subscribe, the tele phone is laid on to your ear, as near as may be, and you hear that o' mornings which is warranted to make you sit up and get up. Besides, you get a different form of summons every day, and this thing never palls upon you. For a small extra charge you can have a phonograph attachment which can be turned on to say your prayers for you.

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

! Household Hints ! Chloroform will remove grease or paint marks from a carpet. When a material has been stained, and ammonia is used to clean it, the colour sometimes appears destroyed. The application of chloro form will restore this. Bread destroys the smell of onions, and if water with a piece of bread in it be bolled in a pan smelling of onions, lt will thoroughly clean lt. The water should be allowed to boil for about an hour, then be emptied out, and the pan well dried. When buying wicks for lamps, choose those that are soft and loosely woven. They will burn better than any other kind. When buying lamp-chimneys choose those with a ground glass-edge at the top. Ground glass allows more room for , expansion than plain glass, and the ! chimneys are, therefore, less likely to j break. J To destroy mice fill a bucket with water, and scatter oats over the top so that the ; water is quite bidden. Then put the (bucket near a table or chair, from which the mice can jump into it. They ...

Marriage in Algeria. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

Marriage In A'gr ri a. Marrying a wife is expensive in this land. Besides paying for her, the hus band is expected to present her with a panier de la nancee, consisting of seven ty different essences, medicines, and cos metics. At the preliminary meetings neither bride nor bridegroom are pre sent. Nor are they present at the mar riage ceremony. Before pronouncing the absent couple man and wife, the ma rabout, in the presence of the family and friends* reads the following en lightened words from the Ko ran :-Men are superior to wo men, because the qualities whicn God has given them elevate them above women, and because they use their money for the marriage dowry of women. Virtuous women are obedient and subdued." The advice is given to a man about to enter the matrimonial j state-to reprimand his wife if he fears disobedience on her part, to beat her if she disobeys, but from the moment ! that she obeys to cease quarrelling with j her. At her entrance on married life the Kabyle woman...

FARM AND DAIRY. ! Caterpillars have been very de structive around Warren and other parts of the colony. Broom millet is selling at £29 per ton. Some of our farmers should try a small crop. The occasional showers that hare fallen during the past week or two, have greatly improved the growth of the young potato and maize crops. The orchards around Agnes Banks, both citrus and stone fruit are looking splendid, and with any j thing like a favourable season there should be an abundance of fruit. i The estimated total produce of j wheat grown in Great Britain in 1898 was 9,129,000 quarters, a greater quantity than has beep re turned in any year since 1890, when the acreage under - this crop was 284,000 larger than the 2,102,000 acres under this cereal in 1898.
