Swift and His Servants. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898

Swift aud liis Servants. Swift had some whimsical contrivances to punish his servants for disobedience of orders. The hiring of his maid ser vants he left to his housekeeper, and that form being over, he acquainted them that he had but two commands to give them — one, to shut the door whenever they came into a room ; the other, to shut the door whenever they went out of a room. One of these maid servants requested permission of the -lean to go to her sister's wedding, which was to take place about ten miles distance from Dublin. Swift not only consented, but ienz me servant one or ms. iiorses, and directed that a man servant should ride before her. The maid. In her Joy at this favour, forgot to shut the door when she , left the dean's room. About a quarter of an hour after she had left the house Swift ordered a servant to saddle another horse to overtake the maid and her escort and oblige them to return Im mediately. This was done, and the' girl went into the dean's presence with th...

Some Hardy Animals. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 22 January 1898

Some Hardy Animals. A Canadian trapper found not long ago (says a French professor) that one of his traps had disappeared. A month afterwards some people ninety miles' distant from the place where the trap had been set killed a wolf with that very trap attached to his leg. The aninial was' reduced almost to a skeJe-.. jvu. J.11O.L uv Biiuuiu uate ucen awe to '^rag tie trap about for a month through a hundred miles of forest shows how: hard it is to kill a wolf. Going down lower in the brute creation, the power of clinging life seems to increase. . IJveryone knows how hard it is to kill a snake, and the old superstition about the pieces living till sunset seems to have been quite justified. Other rep rtiles show even more wonderful powers. It is sometimes very hard to kill a common tortoise. A writer tells of one that lived six months after its brain was taken out moving its limbs and ?walking as before. Another lived twenty-three days after its head was cut off, and the head itself ...

The Home. Nursery Accidents. When ahythinjc; gets into tlie eye the eye should be widely opened by the finger and thumb of the left hand of the operator, while the Httie object can then be removed on the corner of a handkerchief by the right hand.

If there is anything in the eye the lid should be kept closed, and Hie affected eye should not be rubbed ; but some times it is a good plan to rub the oilier eye, causing an increased liow of tears, by which means the object may be got rid of ; aud blowing the nose will also sometimes draw the tears that way and help Its removal. Cold water or cold tea may then be applied to subdue any inflammation. . Lime, mortar, or plaster in the eye are very daa...

The Hurricane Before Sebastopol. In General Sir Daniel Lyson's work, ' The Crimean War from First to Last.' thoro is the following description of the hurricane before. Sevastopol :— ' At about 2 o'cloek in the morning there came down a deluge of rain with a heavy wind. Water literally poured through our tents : it did not drop, but givat coat ovpr uiy head and remained : quiet hoping for some time it would | stop : liut at dawn the wind rose, i and tho taut began to flap and roar like : thunder.

Ostrich Farming in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 22 January 1898

Ostrich Farming in England. A. new and most interesting experi ment, which may develop into a pros perous and paying industry, providing considerable employment at home, is now to be -witnessed at the ostrich farm temporarily established in the grounds of the Crystal Palace Company. The farm consists of twenty-three birds— rvviilYrn fnmtilnc unft piwnn vnalps of tbf- Nubian aud Cape breeds. Though the primary object of bringing this interesting group to England is un doubtedly a speculative one, the result of the enterprise in the interests of agri culture may be far-reaching, and possi bly do much towards resuscitating tlie 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 Groat Britain. In spite of much travelling both ...

A Fijian Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 22 January 1898

A Fijian Beauty. There is nothing isays ' St Paul's') in the ordinary appearance or de meanour of the softer sex in Fiji iu any way suggestive of its members belong ing to a race which, for many genera tions, had made itself dreadpd among the coral islands of the Western Pacific by the systematic practice of cannibal ism as an esseutial portion of its reli gious ceremonial. In bygone, niau eatlug days, the Fijian woman was re- | garded by the sterner sex as a kind of inferior being— a plaything during the years of maidenhood, and a slave in after life. She was not allowed, except under certain special circumstances, to partake of human flesh, or be present at any of the hideous cannibal orgies.. Their skins are usually of a bright dark brown, smooth and glossy as polished marble, and many, while young, possess handsome features and most symmetri cal forms : butt unfortunately, their natural grace speedily disappears after^ marriage— at least, among tlie common people, who have no at...
