OXIE HEW DEPABTUEE. At the beginning of a period in wbicb we ahall bo brought more intimately arid fre ? quently into association with our readers than hitherto has been the case, we may opportunely say a word about the functions '. and office of the journalist, in the light in which we see them. But first a little retrospect may be permitted. Pifty-one years ago this day, the first number of the Mercury appeared. It was then issued aa a small four page paper once-a-week, on Saturdays.

A Startling Incident. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 January 1894
A Startling Incident. A startling incident occurred the other day at the Lancashire and Yorkshire Hotel, Exchange Station, Liverpool. About eight o'clock in the morning paasers-by were horrified at seeing a gentleman, outside the balcony of a window on the fonrth floor. The gentleman who proved to be Captain Machell, the well-known sportsman, had olitnbed over the balcony and was crouching with his feet on the narrow ledge, his left arm being round the stone coping balustrade. Great excitement prevailed, and ultimately Captain Machell was rescured from his perilous position by a police sergeant and an hotel official. It trans pired that a man working in the building opposite the hotel had previously seen Captain Machell walk on' to the balcony and stand looking down, but before the workman could give an alarm he re entered the room and closed the window. He seems' however, to have returned to the balcony, and to have then climbed completely over. It is stated that he was persuaded t...
The Stomach of the House. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 January 1894
The Stomach of the House. 'When the time comes for the householders to take possession of their home it is helpful to bear in mind this paraphrase of an old saying: ' The kitchen is the stomach of the house ; the bed room the lungs, the sitting-room the heart, and the parlour the brain.' The first objective point then is the kitchen or seat of the physical well being of the household. The average woman com mences housekeeping without a maid, therefore, she should study the economy of time and labour as well as that of money. In this view of the case an oil cloth on- the kitchen floor becomes a justifiable expense. Few women are strong enough to keep a bare floor properly scrubbed, and a carpet ab sorb, ing the odours and greases of cooking is an abomi nation. It is a good plan to buy brown oilcloth foi this purpose, as it shows wear less readily than other colours and blends better with the woodwork. To be sure this seems like a little thing, but atten tion to details in an essentia...
