A Common Cause of Dyspepsia. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 30 March 1887

A Common Cause of Dyspepsia. This habit has grown'lo bo common iu our large citics, where men live ntndistnncefroni their business places, nnd therefore lake a light lunch every day during the week. When Sunday comes they havo leisure for breakfast and a little exercise during tlielfore noon, then havo a royal dinner at two o'clock, aud perhaps lazy lounging and ' lying off,' as i t is called, during the nfternoon. They thus eat twice as much on Sunday ns they do othcrdnys. The appetite is just us good na it would be if they were engaged in their ordinary oc cupations, but the needs of the system aro not half so great when a person is idle as whon he is actively or laboriously engaged in ' business, nnd the result is that .Monday is a blue, day to very many. It is a day of head aches and ill feeling, and by Wednesday perhaps they get back into their normal track again, aud by Saturday arc ready for anotlierstiiHingon Sunday.

The Creole Housekeeper. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 30 March 1887

The Creole Housekeeper. The Creole mistress is not ashamed to own her familiarity with the small economics of housekeeping. The daily bill of fare passes under her supervision. She prepares her own mayonnaise, bisque, deviled crabs, ices, and sweets, and is most particular that coffee is strong nnd abundant enough. To come np to the required standard of strength it must dye the cup, but then a very small quantity is drunk. The instinct of economy is her birthright, handed down by mother nnd grandmother. With a few onions, a little lard, somo celery or parsley, pepper nnd salt, and a quart of water, she will brow you a most savory soup at a minimum, of cost, and it is one ot a large family of low-priced and toothsome broths. The crayfish, caught in sport by her children, will como to the table as bisque or fricassee. Few things aro with out possibilities in her hands.
