In a year he had made £20,000, and two years later he was worth a million dollars. He built a £50,000 mansion, and surrounded him self with all the luxuries of life. Then he went to New York and entered Wall strect, where he lost his million almost as quickly as he had made it. He then returned to Chicago a fluancia! and physical wreck, and now he is in his grave.

ETHICS OF BARGAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
ETHICS OF BARGAINING. A bargain is a trade in which each party outwits the other and each thinks he has got the best of it. A good bargain is when we get the better of the other party.and a bad bargain is when be gets tbe better of us. To bargain iB to bicker for the advantage, trying to get the other party off guard, that you may secure bis wares without giving him their equivalent. To get a bargain iB to buy what you do not want at a few cents less than you might have to pay if you ever sbould want it. A good bargain often turns out a poor one. The time, energy, and money spent in securing a good bargain will usually prove a bad investment.

An authority divides cannibalism Into five different classes— cannibalism of necessity, cannibalism of desire, cauui ballsui of theology, cauufbulisui of dis cipline and education, and cauulbalisui of revenge. Aud although it is doubt less Interesting to the student to classify and seek out causes, what a matter of supreme Indilfcreuce It must be to the individual sacrlliced whether he it* being on leu because there is no other food handy, or because ho has excited the anger of his enemies ! The deplorable fact that lie is being eaten is quite sulli cient for him. The natives of the I'iJI Islands are notorious cannibals, although missionary work among them has done much towards lessening the practice. Human flesh is looked upon as a great delicacy by the KlJIiius ; it i* considered even superior to purk, aud a special fork is used to eat It with.

He made a pretty picture as he lay curled up on the lounge, with his silken tresses of the fashionable Titian shade, his dainty spiing wautand thecliiffon bloomers which r,:u'hed to his slender ankles. One two, three, four, five, six, chimed the ormolu clock upon the mantel-piece. The eound awakened the young husband. 'Good erncious! ': he exclaimed. 'Six o'clock already, and Susan will be home in half-an-hour. I mustn't keep her waiting for dinner again. I shall never forget tho ? dreadful language Bhe used the last time it occurred.' Springing to his feet, he fetched his wife's slippers from the bedroom and placed them upon the electric radiator to warm. Then he hurried into the kitchen and buBied him self with masliing potatoes, pounding tbe beefsteak to make it tender, and with vnrious other little preparations for tbe evening meal.

WASHING WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
WASHING WAYS. The hardest worked washerwomen in the world are the Koreans. They have to vvatUi about a dozen dresses for their busbauds, and,inasmuch as every man wears pantalouns so baggy that they come up to his neck like those of a clown, they have plenty to do. The washing is usually done in cold water, aud often in ruDning streams. The clothes are pounded with paddles until they shine like a shirt- front fresh from a Chinese laundry. The Japanese rip their garments apart for every washing, and they iron their clothes by spreading tbem on a flat board and lean ing this up against tbe house to dry. The sun takes the wrinkics out of the clothes, and Borne of them have quite a lustre. The Japanese woman does Jicr washing aut of doors. Her wash -tub iti not more than 6in. high, and is about as big round as tbe aver ago dish-pan. She gets the dirt out of the clothes by rubbing them between her hands. She sometimes uses Japanese soap, which is full of grease, and woiks away with her b...
