Care of Kid Shoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

Care of Kid Shoes. Most of the shoe polishes which are sold, although imparting a brilliancy to our foot gear, are very destructive to.the leather, causing the material to crack in a surprising manner. I have, how ever, found in an old note-book an ex cellent recipe for shoe-dressing, which can be made at home at very little, cost, and still less trouble. If the quantities which I give are too large they, can be reduced, but the principle is the same Mix together two pints of vinegar, one pint of, rain water, four ounces.;of-,fine glue, eight ounces of logwood chips, two drachms; of 'powdered indigo, four, drachms of bichromate potass, - four drachms of gum-tragacanth, and four ounces of glycerine'. /Boil gently until all are thoroughly Incorporated, then strain and bottle for use.

A New Lamp Wick. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

A New Lamp Wick. There lias been invented a lamp wick of clay which it is claimed gives 25 per cc-nt more light than the ordinary wick of cotton. The wicks, which have al ready been tested by use in microscopi cal and laboratory work, and given per fect satisfaction, are made capillary by , incorporating with the clay while in a soft: .state filaments of unspun vegetable fibre, which is burned out in the process of making-. As described in the " Popu- j lar Science News," the object of the , inventor has been to provide an indes- j tructlble wick which shall possess all the advantages and qualities of an or dinary cotton or fibre wick, and which shall in addition burn an indefinite time without renewal or necessity of trim- ; ming or care. Owing to the perfect j combustion of the wick, the flame is perfectly white, without odour or smoke. ' The burning out of the fibre leaves ' capillary tubes through which the oil i from the lamp is raised to the flame.'

When smooth, pour over it eight cups of boiling water, j stirring rapidly, add a quarter-teaspoon borax, and boil about ten minutes.

A Novel Water Purifier. A native correspondent Rives what lie calls " quite a novel method of filtering; water by almonds." Take three almonds, peel their skin oft by placing them in tepid water l'or a abort time, and then pound them and dissolve them in a couple of spoonfuls of water. If this solution is poured into a jar full of tainted water it will cleanse it in a short time.

Origin of Sea-bathing. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

' ^r': Origin of'Scii-balliinff. It Is Interesting' to note, says "Science Siftings,"that. sea-bathing had its j origin in England before 1750, when i Dr. Riffflard Russell published his trea ! tise onj the' virtues 6f "sea-water. The healing'-virtues of-the sea bath were not understood, nor was the practice oC sea-batbiii'& ~ generally resorted to.

Ostrich Farming in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

©stricli Fanning in England. A new and most interesting experi ment, which may develop into a pros perous and paying industry, providing considerable employment 'sit home, is now to be witnessed at the ostrich farm temporarily established in tlio grounds of the Crystal Palace Company. The farm consists of twenty-three birds— Twelve females and eleven males of the Nubian and Cape breeds. Though the primary object of bringing this interesting group to England is un doubtedly a speculative one, tlic result of the enterprise in the interests of agri culture may bo far-reaching, and possi bly do much towards resuscitating the drooping spirits of the British farmer. Some seventeen or eighteen years ago this end was attained by the introduc tion of the ostrich at the Cape, and there is no reason, as far as the present experi ment has gone, why a similar result should not apply to the introduction of the bird—for commercial purposes—to Great Britain. In spile of much travelling both by sea ...

The Home. .Nursery Accidents. When anything gets into the eye the eye should be widely opened by the linger and thumb of the left lia.ml of the operator, while the little object can then bo removed on the corner of a handkerchief by the right hand. If it is inside the upper lid, however, a pen cil or darning-needle must be placed llat upon the upper eyelid about hall'-a.n-irich above the lashes, and the lashes are then drawn upwards, while the pencil is kept steadily pressed against; the eye ball, and the patient told to look down. If there is anything in the eye (lie lid should be kept closed, and the affected eye sliould not be rubbed ; but some times it is a good plan to rub the other eye, causing an increased liow of tears, by which means the object may be got rid of ; and blowing the nose will also sometimes draw the tears that; way and help its removal. Cold water or cold tea may then bo applied to subdue any inflammation. Lime, mortar, or plaster in the eye are very dangerous...
