A Wonderful Story of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898
A Wonderful Story of the Sea. A lad was found bogging in Fly mouth tome years ngo, who told a most wonderful tale of woe. Aeoord ins: to his statement, given with a straight face and an apparently clear conscience, lip had been a cabin-hny on a steamship. For sonic misbehaviour, as a temporary punishment he was headed up in an empty waiercask, and left to reflect upon his wickedness. with only the bunghole of the cask to breathe through. On the following night a terrible storm c«mc up and the vessel went down with all on hoard, excepting himself, ih«( eask bavins; rol led over into the 6oa at the first lunch of the sinking ship. Fortunately for its unhappy occupant, the cask floated with the bunghole free from the water, and in the course of a day or so was cast upon the coatt, where the lad, after making numerous vain attempts to release himself, settled back to die. Borne cows, however, he said, camp strolling along the leach, and ono of them, while switching its tail about, accid...
Outburst of Springs in Time of Drought. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898
Outburst off Springs in Time of Drought. By W. E. Abbott, Wincen. The outbnist of springs, aud, as a consequence, the increased flow of water in creeks and rivers without ap rareut cause, just at the climax of a long continued and widespread drouRht, bus occasioned a good deal of interest in New SSuth Wales ; and many theories have been offered in explanation through the press. As the phenomena were verv prouounced ? on my own property at Wineen in , may, up to winch time tlnre bad been a rainfall of only about four inches, I carefully noted what was taking place, with the object of arriving at the im- I mediate cause of the outburst, hopiug | by this rmsns to be in a position to say whether it is or ie not an indic ation of the termination of drought conditions iu the area affected. I do not propose to deal with all the theo ries offered in explanation, but will en deavour to clear the grouud by getting rid of those which, from the position of the men by whom they have been put for...
Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898
Our Sydney Letter. [From our Svdney Contributob.] Christmas bas come and gone, and really 1 don't think anyone is very sorry that the festival is over. It 1ms not been a very prosperous time for business people by all accouuts, and although tbe number of people visiting S.yiney from the oountry lias been slightly larger than last year, they do not seem to have had quite so much money to spend as on oilier similar occasions. Il may be tliat tho rain at the commencement of the week, put folks a bit 'ff oolour, for it is a sin gular fact that wet days in Christmas week never pnll themselves up again by extra takings on other days. The natural inference is that if people do not spnnd money on one day they will on another, but such is said by shop keepers, uot to be the case. Whatever may be the purcba&iug power of the public, however, they al ways find money for amusement, and the quantity of caBh which these holi days has swelled the treasuries of the various theatres and other...

Speaking of Lung Ago. To day. afi I pen tbese. lines, one picture, from tlie long-vnnisbeii p»st rises in my me mory as clen-ly us though it hung . n a wall before my very eyes. It is of a boy fourteen years old. propped up in ft great arm-chair with pillows and bed-clothes, and (razing through a window.

It ouglvi to be' freshly drawn every, time, and drifiik as soon as it is cool. If taken lukewarm it will not raise ilie temperature, and it is then more soothing than when cold.

Dyspepsia and Bad Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
Dyspepsia aud Bad Teeth. I have often given hints In this column concerning the care of the teeth, and also abuuL indigestion, yet few except iiR-iJic;il mei: know how intimately bad teeth mid dyspepsia are connected. Mas tication is tile lirst process of digestion, and if it be not properly performed the whole system wiJ) suffer. A word in the wise, thin : On the very lirst indica tion ut' leeih decay have them seen iu, for you may believe me when I say that dyspepsia, or failure in digestion, as one gets up iu yeans, means the beginning ol the eod. Goad teeth and longevity gij hand in hand.
Household Hints. Spots Cleaned by Chalk. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
Household Hints Snots Cleaned bv Chalk. French chalk, tooth chalk, chalk pen cil—any chalk — is an agent for cleansing in an 'endless variety of ways. Rub it into grease spots on dresses, wall pa per, anything ; it may be rubbed into food spots, say molasses, with excellent effect It disintegrates the dirt, so that it can be scratched or brushed out. liven on wash dresses this easy remedy is well worth applying. Not only spots but the hand-rulibed soiled parts may some limes be restored, or, at least, improved. Rub on the chalk and hang the garment away over night, or for days, to be brushed clean when used again.
Cleaning Carpets. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
Cleaning Carpets. Oxgall for cleaning carpets will not be a success unless the carpet has lwen thoroughly beaten free of dust tlrst. liven then it must not be soaked in, as so many housekeepers mistakenly try to do. Put two gills of oxsall tr« one ordi nary-sized pail of water ; use a soft brush, and apply the mixture lightly an«i evenly; a lather will be produced which iuust be rinsed off at once, and briskly, by a second operator, with cold, soft «ater, which must be changed very often so as to keep it quite clear, uuaersianu ing U:at it is uut real washing that is needed, and mat there must be no splashing ami no soaking, lience the use of the soft brush, which will not splutter. Of couiriu liipidity is a great point, as the cnrpe-l will Ih.'ii ili-y more, evenly. For this reason a hot day should be chosen, or, in winter, one in which the room has Ijwii tlRiiou«liiy well jieat^d. Unforiu natvly, ilie oxgall Jias a most unpleasant smell.

A Useful Hint [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
A Useful Hint Here is a hint which Is recommended to committees of Institutions in low watfcr. It is said that a Brooklyn Ro man Catholic priest has evolved a method of paying off his church debt, which amounted to $110,000, by a some what novel but effective method. He selected eleven of his parishioners, and had their, lives insured fnr $10,000 each. Th-? premiums were paid out of the church collections. Whenever one of the insured died the amount of the policy was applied on the church debt. Up to recently the clergyman had cancelled j J40.000 of the debt by reason of the death - o£ four of his parishioners. The Idea is said by an insurance paper not to be original with the Brooklyn priest. Tbe same sort of thing has been tried with success elsewhere.
