PUZZLING THE IRISHMAN. Toole tells a goad story of an adventure he met with in Pitti Gallery at Florence. He says: ' Billingtoa was with me at tbe time] We had benn looking at pictures all day. I was just going to tell Billingtoa that I had had enough, when an Irish voice expressed the same idea, but more eloquently than 1 sbould have done. ' No, my darlint, I'll not go in there ; I'm thundering tired av the whole thing.1 'We turned round, and there was a typical Hibernian gentleman talking to his wife. 'No. darlint.I'll sit here 'til ye come. Go and see the thing ; I'm sick of the whole show !' He was very hot, mopped hiB face with a handkerchief, and composed himself quietly on a bench at the entrance to one of the side gallariea. * Here's a chance,' I said to Bil lington. I had a catologue in my hand, so up I went to the Irishman, and in the best bogus Italian I could invent, 1 pretended to draw his attention to the objects of art he was neglecting.

A [?] Home. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
A Mnsiu ftcr.nl Howe . The Leiter home (Mrs. George Cur zou's) in Washington deties description. Each guest-chamber in the house has a bath-room attached to it, aud not ouly this, a charmingly-furnished sitting room. As to the Leiter cuisine it is irre nroachable. The American cuisine (the ' Gentlewoman' says) undoubtedly sur passes the Knglish in tiistiuess and variety. Before every meal blue poiuts are served on crushed ice. To every person at table are placed six or seven little finger-shaped white china dishes, containing distracting boumw bouchos such as olives, pistachio nuts, crisped valuuts, anchovies, dressed tomatoes, gherkins, &c. As you talk, you nibble pleasantries between the courses. The American women drink much less wine than Ihe English do nt meals, though they are not above calling aloud for whisky code-tails at promiscuous hours of the day.

Aluminium Properties. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
AUuiiiuiuin Properties. Herr Charles Margot, of the Univer sity of Geneva, has recently made a curious discovery concerning aluminium, lie has found that if glass be rubbed with a piece of this metal very brilliant markings will be obtained that no uuiuuiil ui wiisuiug win cause to ais appoar, and this is especially manifested when the rubbed surface Is wet with water or simply covered with a stratum of aqueous vapour, Herr Margot has constructed a small aluminium wheel which revolves very rapidly, and with it he wakes designs upon glass after the nmnuer of .ordinary engravers. The designs arc metallic and brilliant, and hys burnishing with^a steel tool they may be even made to have the appear ance of metallic' inlaid work, and their adhesion is absolute. This property of aluminium Is also an Immediate dlstin gulsher of the diamond from ' paste,' Whilst aluminium leaves a very appar eiit trace upon crystals of the latter, it has no action whatever upon the true diamond.

An Arab Courtship. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
An Arub Couriatttp. Dashful lovers are almost an unknown curiosity in Arabia, for Ai-ali ' court- ship' is unceremonious, to say ihe least of it. A young man sees a girl whom he would like to marry iu another tribe. He rides up at night, liuds out where she is sleeping, dashes up to her tent, snatches her up in his aims, puts her be fore him on bis horse, aud sweeps uway like the wind, if he happens to be ca.ught he is shot ; if he is not, the tribe from which be has stolen the girl nays them a visit iu a lew days. A priest -.-f the tribe joins the bauds of the young man mid girl, and both tribes join iu the festivities. Most of the brave nwu steal their wives, but there are some few peace-loving youths who do not. On a calm moonlight night you may see one of these latter sitting before the tent of his lady-love singing a sous of his own com position aud playing a stringed instru ment something like our baujo. This is his courtship.

He draws a salary of £5000 a year, enJoj-B the use of a palace, gets a liberal al lowance for entertaining, and a peerage on the resignation from oilicts.

A Verbal Test. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
A Verbal Test. The test is the word 'asparagus.' Your be-diamonded new acquaintance may have every elegance of. apparel and manner. She may even be apparently well educated, and have successfully stood the tests of ' tomato' and ' posi tive' and 'bouquet.' But when it conies to ' asparagus' and she puts an 'r' in the last syliaoie or mat succu lent vegetable's name, it is too much, and, as Artemus 'Ward would say, it Is because of the muchness that you de cline to grapple her to your soul with hooks of steel, or any like evidence of affection and esteem. ' Asparagrraes,' for 'asparagus' is more common than one might at first blush suspect. Per sons who are invulnerable on many other important verbal points are open to this charge. It is especially signifi cant as showing the home Influence. High and haughty college graduate in tellects that have worsted all the ' olo gles,' and have come out on top In many . a battle lor a degree, have been known to say aspara-grass. It's one of tho...
The Sketcher. The Art of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
Thejfoetcher. *ne Ait m Living. When one stops to analyse the real meaning of duty it becomes plain that our ideas about it are exceedingly eon- i ?fused. One of my acquaintances, full of her inheritance of conscientiousness, was drilling into the ears of an objecting cuiiu cerium maxims. ' Don't you know,' protested the child, ' that every word you say makes it harder for uiu to do it V .' That makes no difference,' replied the mother. ' It's my duty to tell you.' She was wroug. It whs her. duly to produce the best possible efiect ou her child, but the menus !-j Ijc used were not specilied ; it was her busiiii'ss to see that they wore wine aud ufiica cious. Our duties in this world are very wide and -leei- ; our methods, as a rule, both scant and shallow. You say to a person who is making a very lioor thing of life: 'Why do you not do so aud so V' The reply comes weari ly : ' Oh, I never look ahead. 1 just live by the day.' They do. Also they die by the day, and leave nothing behin...

"Hello!" in England. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 10 March 1899
'Hello!' in Enfflniid. It Is much More Ceremonious Than in the United States. The man had just come back from a year's sojourn in England and had used the telephone to announce to a friend his presence in town. ' My, but that's different irom tne ser vice we get across the pond.' said he. ' Over there it is something like this : ' You ring and say : ' Are you there ?' ' ' Are you there ? is the answer. ' After assuring the young woman that you are there, she asks you what number you want. You tell her. Then you ring off and go out and transact some business. The same morning, if you are lucky, there comes a ring and then : ' ' Are you there V ' You assure .the young woman, on honour, that you are really there ; she thanks you. and then says : ' ' There you are.' *' ' Are you there ?' This time it is the man you want to talk to. ' 'Are you there ?' This time you are answering him, for no self-respecting Briton will talk over the line unless all the ceremonious details have been care ...

The lady, however, did Hot reciprocate tin; granting, find when she released heivelf. from the loviug embrace the gentleman was fairly staggered at. the discovery that ho bad made a mistake and Icissi-d the .wrong hidy. The latter was naturally much astonished at the warmth of her reception, and all she could ejaculate was, 'Well, I was never so much taken aback before.' Tlio gentleman, of course, was profuse in his apologies, which were good-naturedly accepted, and then, see ing...
