An Elephant's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

An Elephant's Revenge. The entrance of the great Interna tional Menagerie .In procession Into the town of VImoutier, near Alencon, was recently the occasion of an amusing Inci dent. The procession was headed by a large elephant, to whom the spectators were giving crusts of bread, &c. A cafe-keeper, named Anne, showed a tempting piece of bread to the animal, and then put it into- his pocket. The in telligent brute tried with his trunk to get possession of it, but «very time he put his trunk near the pocket Anne gava him a hard tap with his hand. To re venge itself the elephant twisted its trunk round 11. Anne's waist, and hoisted him into the air, opening his mouth as If he were about to gobble him up. OI course, all the women and children began to scream and run away. But on a sign from the keeper the ele phant placed M. Anne quietly on the ground, and released his hold. It is said M. Anne was so frightened that he soon overtook the women and children in their flight. The be...

Two SUiges in Love Making. He was barely 21. His moustache was merely a delicate hint. ( He had been to two stylish balls, had a bowing ac quaintance with three third-rate ac tresses, and no one could ever tell him anything that he dldn'-t1 know. ' He admired a woman whose age was a stationary 29, whose hair was adjust able, and whose tense was past. He passed his hand wearily over his uiMviiimjeu uiutv miu jjuiu ins wuu in the following unimpassloned terms : — ' My cliild. I have only the remains of a wasted life to offer to you. I am tired of everything. Everything bores me. Society has been my ruin ! But If you like to take pity on a. man who has drunk the cup of pleasure to its bitter dregs, and frittered away a noble career, I am willing to devote the poor remnant of my life to you entirely.' But the wonian shook her head, and turned aside to hide a smile, saying to herself : ' Why, he is even younger than I thought !' Twenty years later he was naturally 43. He now preferred th...

Infectiousness of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

Infcctiousncss of Milk. We have heard much lately as to the liability o£ contagion from milk ; and if the analysts and bacteriologists are to be relied .upon, the use of that article of diet is certainly not free from danger. Several pathologists of the United States have undertaken a careful and exhaus tive examination of milk chiefly with a view to determine whether milk from a tuberculosis udder is infectious. One hundred and twenty-one microscopical examinations of milk and cream were made of specimens from 36 different ani mals, and bacilli were found in the milk of twelve animals These animals were all infected with tuberculosis ; but their udders were free from disease. Milk feeding experiments were made upon rabbits, pigs, and calves, with the result that about 4 per cent of the rabbits, 50 per cent of the pigs, and 33 per cent of the calves became infected. Out of 33 samples of the general milk supply of Boston, taken from various sources, tubercle bacilli was found in 1 in...

Eating in Olden Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

Eating in Olden Times. Few references can be found as to the manner in which a meal was served and eaten during the Dark Ages. As near as we can learn, the soup was put In a big bowl with ears, called a ' porringer.' There was seldom a spoon for each per son. Those who had spoons dipped them into the porringer, aud the liquid was carried directly to «ach mouth. Those who were without snoous ilrank the soup from the porringer, holding It by one of the ears, or else borrowed a spoon of their neighbour. The meats were placed In a large vessel in the corner of the table. Each person pre sent at the meal picked out with his fingers such bits as he desired. One or two knives answered for half-a-dozen guests. Those who were without knives borrowed from those wub had one. As a rule, the guests at table used their own knives. There is no evidence that nap kins were supplied to guests at this period. In short, people ate like beasts, nnd the method still obtains in some circles. . ' What's th...

Curious Currency. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

Curious Currency. Norway even now uses corn for coin. The skins of animals were the earliest forms of money. In India cakes of tea pass 'as currency, and in China pieces of silk. Sheep and oxen among the old Romans took the place of money. Oxen form the circulating medium among the Zulus and Kaffirs. Tin to-day forms the standard of value at the great fairs of Nlshnl Novgorod. In the retired districts of New Guinea female slaves form the standard of value. Among some of the native Australians greenstone (Jade) and red ochre form the currency. Chocolate is still used in the interior ot South America for currency, as are cocoa nuts and eggs. Iron spikes, knives, spear heads, and brass rods are employed in certain parts of Central Africa. According to Adam Smith, It was not so very long ago that nails were used as a subsidiary coin in Scotland. Whales' teeth are used by the Fijians, red feathers by some of the South Sea Islanders, and salt in Abyssinia. The old Chinese gold coins were ...

Household Hints. The Toilette. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

Household Hints* The Toilette. Hands that perspire profusely in hot weather or in a crowded room should be plunged into water wherein pow dered alum has been dissolved. Do this the last thing- before drawing on your gloves to go into society. If your hands are fat do not wear tight sleeves. . Glycerine, eau de Cologne, and soft water, mixed in equal proportions, form a very good application for the hands of women who have hard work to do. The ugliest nails can be improved by taking- the trouble daily to push back the hard skin that grows at the base of me nans, -j nis snouia ue done alter line hands have been washed in warm soap and water, and are still moist. A soft towel Is the best thing to use for the purpose, or an ivory or bone implement, such as is sold in manicure sets. A sharp-pointed instrument, such as a pin, should never be used to clean under the nail. It hardens the nails and renders them more liable to retain the dirt. A lemon is the best substitute for a nail-brush. ...

How to End the Story. ' He had never spoken to her of love. But her Influence was upon him ; it showed in his work. She was a clever girl, pretty as a pastelle and as fragile aud eager of praise. His writings be came tinged with a new beauty, 11 new air of fineness ; that was the effect of his Jove for her. ' Well, now, in the last chapter he is to propose to her. Advise me, will 3-011, whether she would accept him or not ? He is unable to offer her luxury, remem ber ; and she is so pretty, so fair, and so fond of the fair tilings in life, as to be, perhaps, somewhat eager for them al ways. Now— you are a woman— what should be the true ending, the artistic end V Of course, I can see that marriage bells would please the public ; but I'm not so anxious about the dear public. If they married they might become, both of them, horribly commonplace ; all the cleverness might go out of his work, and all the fairness out of her face.

Stambuloff Taking The Bull by the Horns. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

StanibiilofT Taking: the Bull by the Ilorns. 51. Rtambuloff's earlier, as well as his later, life, as the new volume of ' Public Men of To-day' tells us, was full of ex citing adventures, of plots and counter plots. The circumstances of M. Stani buloff's fall seem to have been as pecu liar as they were painful. He was in formed of a plan to force him, ' at the point of the sword and the muzzle of the revolver,' to tender his resignation. Again aud again he, was sent for to the Palace at untinielv* hours, but all to no purpose. ' Finally, however, he thought- It was time to put an end to such summonses, and went after his dinner.' Upon en tering, the Prince embraced him affec tionately, kissing him on both cheeks, and inquired after his health. After au hour or two spent iu discussing cur rent business. Stainbulon', fixing his ter rible eye upon liis master, said. ' Your Highness, 1 hear strange rumours in the town. They say that 1 am to be asked to report at night, as I have been as...

The Home. The Housewife's Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898

The Home. The Housewife's Holiday. The housewife' lias just as much need of a holiday as the breadwinner, and often more. The husband or brother wants to get away from ' the worries of mere drudgery of a profession or busi ness ; the lawyer wants to throw off the dust of the law courts and his cham bers, and to breathe the' purer air of golf links or Swiss mountains ; the mer chant is yearning for the too brief period during which he will be relieved from tlie monotonous journey to and from his office ; and the parson and the doc tor seek relief from the incessant care of sick souls and sick bodies. But what about the wives ? Many husbands are apt to forget that the wive's home worries are as great, or nearly so, as his own dally anxieties. In one respect they are greater ; in most eases be leaves liis troubles behind him at bis oflice, and In any case a man is more capable of throwing off his troubles than a woman. Her home is, so to speak, her ofltce ; so long as she is at home sh...

IVlien Doctors Disagree. Commissions on Lenrosv. . Wheu doctors differ, we all know that patients, die ; but what dire, results follow when two commissions differ ? A ; commission has been investigating leprosy in India, and has decisively stated as its opinion that leprosy is not a contagious disease. In India, there fore, lepers are treated on that basis. 1 Almost at the same time, however, a commission appointed by the Cape of Good Hope Government also made its report ; and the conclusion It. lias come TO IS IU111 Jt'|UOK,V IE, It UUUWljL^JOUS Ul sease.

Many people imagine tbat the breach of promise cases they read in the newspapers are all that occnr,' remarked a London solicitor to the writer, ' but they are mistaken By far the, greater number ot cases are settled privately.
