HOUSEKEEPER. THE USES OF HOG FEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
HOUSEKEEPER THE USES OF HOG FEET. Hog foot jolly, though mnoh more elabor ate than that made of gelatine, is sufficiently nice to repay a housekeeper for going to a good deal «f trouble making it. Another point in its favor is that it is made of tome thinir produced on the farm, and country. people ourM to utilise some resources as lar as possible. In order to have vonr jolly stock nice you must bo very careful in your manujrement ol tho hogs' feet. These must bo well soabod for several days In -clear, fresh water which should be changed every twenty-four hours. Then the hoof should be oxt meted, and the feet should bo carefully scraped. Indeed, the scraping should be repeated feveral times, us tbe feet become whiter each time. Then put llifm on in a boiler of cold water and Int them boil until tender, when you may re moro them, celling aside the water in which they were boiled for the next ony, when yoa will find it a etiff mass, on top of which you wi'l fiud a deposit of fine grea...
Euchre Tournament. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
En cliro VoTumuneut* The euchre tournament in aid of the ' Australia' stall at the forth coming bazaar, was very largely attended on Wednesday evening. So successful was the innovation that the Oddfellows' Hall proved too small for the occasion, and the Protestant Hall had to be engaged by tie promoters. On the gents' side, Messrs T. Flanagan, G. Hayes and McCarron tied- with 8 wins each, and played off, Mr. |McCarrou securing the prize. Misses C. Bull, Loneragau, Moran, and Walsh tied, with 7 wins each, on the ladies' side. Flaying off, Misses Loneragan and Walsh defeated Misses Bull and Moran ; and Miss Walsh eventually proved a winner by dereating Miss Loneragan. The. prizes were trophies. Mr. Cooper secured the prize for the lowest number of points scored (a years' subscriptionto Thb Leader). There was also a trophy for the lowest number of points scored by a lady, but the winner did not reveal herself.

Road Tenders. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
Boad Tenders. Nearly every tenderer for road work in this district is on The Leader's subscribers' iist ; and the Government Printer's refusal to permit Government advts. to be in serted in The Leader (the most widely-circulated of the three local papers) means that men are penalised into purchasing papers which they do not want. The local Reform papers certainly owe Mr. Gullick a debt of gratitude.
Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
rire. On Wednesday morning, at Messrs Hayes and Russell's store, it was discovered that a quantity of phosphorus had ignited. The dis covery was fortunately made before any damage was done ; but the con templation of what might have haDneried had the outburst occurred on Wednesday afternoon when the establishment was closed is not a cheerful one. The firm's next free day would probably have had to be postponed.
SKETCHER THOUGHT BETTER OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
SK ETCHER THOUGHT BETTER OF IT. An American lady recently related an amusing experience of hers that happened shortly before she left the States. She said that the incident took place at a town in Ariiota, called Bunlder, and that they had not many ^mufioments or exoitementu in those days excepting shooting matches which the town people Boon became aocos tomed to.' So, when a Mrs. Somebody, who stated that she came from London, strewed the town with handbills stating that she wonld shortly giro a Fniritual seance in a hotel drawing room, everybody was excited about it. ' I was n very good pianist,' said the lady, 1 so « lien the medium offered me five dollars to (uraish tho muric for tho evening I jumped for joy, though I was rather nnrvous about the spirits. My parents gave their consent, and tickets sold rapidly. ' On tbe day of the seance I met a young Englishman who had emigrated from the old country and fettled in Arizona, where he gained a rrputaticn as a dead BhoL I asked him...
THE 18TH AND 19TH BRUMAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
THE 18nr AND J9ra BRUMAIEE. It was on tho 18th Brumaire, otherwise November Utb, 1703, thut Napoleon took his fire- decisive Btep toward the Luperial throne. I say decisive, because it is beyond dispute that, long beforo this, the gaunt and satnr uino artillery-man of Toulon had ohsriahed droams of eggrandiBomeut. His entire oon duct as commander-in-chicf in Italv. am lator in Egypt, goes to prove that Napoleon, if hs did not foresee the heights upon whioh he would stand, at least felt that he wonld distance all his competitors in tbe delirious race for power. The affair of the 18th Brumaire was picturesque and sigziinoant. Napoleon had but recently returned from Egypt. He had come without authority, yet bad appeared rather as a triumphant prinoe than as a citizen soldier. He was received with accla mations. His victories were trumpeted, his defeats whispered. He was the man of the hour, and he had no rival. Beside him all others were pigmies. Ban-as, worn and weary, had lost his re...
