AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

* AGRIOULTURAL NOTES. , A welcome rain has been experienced throughout the whole of Victoria. In every district more or less hbs fallen, and, although coming rather late,- set there is still a few weeks' warm weather before the cold of winter seta in, and the young crops and the grass will get a good start. Water is becoming rather scarce in the northern districts, and i another heavy downfall is required in order to fill the tanks and dame. Our country corre. epondents this week all peak encouragingly of the Improvement in the pastoral and agri cultural outlook generally since the downfall. The drought has not yet broken up in New South Wales. Towards .the close of last week rain fell in several localities in the interior, but the fall was not sufficient to moistenthe soil below the surface. Extreme cold and heavy frosts have since followed, doing much damoae to the pastures. Writing on the drought, the Government astronomer .of New South Wales makes the following interesting remar...

CHILDREN S FARE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

CHILDREN S FARE. While insisting on the regularity of nursery fare, says a writerin " The Queen,' let me protest emphatically against mono tony. Nowhere is the objection to toojoure pordrix greater than with the children. For breakfast, for instance, you can ring the changes on porridge, broad and milk, biscuil sops, and well-made gruel from whole grits. Porridge is more honoured theoreti. cally in England than practically, chiefly, I fancy, from the fact' that few English cooks realise the length of time oatmeal requires to boil, Still, porridge will not always agree, at all events for long together, but the choice is ample. Biscuit sops are so good. so easily made, and euch favouritles where they are known, I wonder they are not oftener seen. This is the process: Take a handful of water biscults, break them down roughly, lay them in a bowl, sprinkle them with sugar to taste, pour a little boiling water on them, and cover the bowl with a plate to keep in the stbam. When the water i...

WINTER DRESS MATERIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

WINTER DRESS MATERIALS. The Parisian likiqg for moire has again made its vogue general, and for the ensuing season it is shown in a variety of colours. These are divided between moize Frangaise, which shows a moire stripe on a corded silk background, and the veritable moire antique as our fore-mothers knew it. The shades of red in fashion are numerous, a genuine flamingo, a deep red, and a burning brick tone being the favourites. All.red costumes are frequently seen,' moire being combined with cashmere of the same tone, and the use of red moire with brown, grey, and dark green suiting is obtaining. Moire is never'made up without a con. trast in fabric, preference being given to cashmere, veloutine, and poplin. Veloutine seems the ideal material. It is a mixture of t silk and wool, -woven like corded silk, and drapes as softly as nun's veiling, while possessing all the elegance of the glossy fabric. It is shown in all the shades mentioned for moire, and also in evening tints, pale he...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. TOWN AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

THE' LADIES' COLUMN. Br VIVA. TOWN AND COUNTRY. " God made the oountry, and man made tse town, What wonder, then, that health and virtue-gills That can alone make sweet the bitter draught That life holds cut to all-ahould most abound, And least be threatened in the fields and groves " These lines of Cowper contain sentiments that the majority of us consider correct, however great may be our regard for the town life, of which the poet evidently thinks so little. We hear and read of the charms and delights of the country, and though we have, many of us, a sneaking fondness for the bustle and excitement of the life of the " shop and the mart," we are apt to con sider this a sign that we are hardened and spoilt by city influences, and consider that if we could become once more healthy. minded we should take delight in nothing so much as in country sights and sounds. But, putting all the intellectual advantages of town life over that of the country en tirely out of the question, I doubt ...

And so, seeing that i there was no other company in the hotel at Morlaix than that of a morose young' Eng lishman who sat scowling at one end of the table while I sat smiling at the other, I a retired to my room and sent for the waiter and the wood. The waiter plumped himself on his heels in his linen jacket, blowing at the green elm.boughs, and as the blaze was long coming we had time to talk. From some slight indications (foreigners are very quick) he discovered I was English and a Londoner; and soon he was sighing over his small chances of ever seeing our great and beloved country, and, above all, of ever see...

WHAT MAY HAPPEN. (IRON.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

WHAT MAY HAPPEN. (mo. .) Speculation is very rife as to what catsea' trophes may overtake this globe of ours; 'Some one has made a calculatioh of how. the earth may be completely submerged-thab. is to say, if only the terrestrial forces could' be directed in the way required to acconm pllsh such an end. The mean height of the land above sea level Is 2,250ft, and the mean depth of the ocean is 12,480ft. Only~ 2 per cent of the sea is included within a depth of 500 fathoms, while 77 per cent, lides between 500 and 3,000 fathoms. If, now the land were filled into the hollow of the sea the latter would roll over the earth's crust: to a uniform depth of two miles. Another curious speculation has been made concernl' ing'what would happen were the earth's rotation to cease. Tue equatorial diameter, being twenty-six miles more than the polar: diameter, the earth would present an. equatorial zone of solid ground miles high" above sea.level, the water all being drawn; to the poles.

"OLD CORONATION" AS A BATTLE HYMN. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

"OLD CORONATION" AS A BATTLB HYMN., It was Sunday. We were marching to our first battle. We waded through miles of sand and numberless streams., Overcome by the heat, men dropped from the ranks, and even horses fell out of the way. To nerve the heart and quicken the step we sang the stirring army songs. At last the cannon was heard in our front, and we krinw'the vidette3 were at work. We soon smelt powder and thought of home." The man were footweary and exhausted, and the power of song was exhausted too. Suddenly the colonel rode up to ns,.its company with the general, and exclaimed, "For heaven's sake give them something to cheer them on ! " Instantly that grand old conference hymn, "'Coronation," came to our minds: All hall tho power of Jesos' name, Lot aoguls prostrate faill, Brink f-rth the royal dialdem, And crown HIm Lord ql all. We sent it forth, and it flew up and down that extended column until the whole armn was inspired by the hymn. The boys sped onward to battle as if ch...

THE NEW EMPRESS OF GERMANY. (REVUE ILLUSTRE) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

THE NEW EMPRESS OF GERMANY. :(BEUE ILLUST-E) Splendid woman .nas she is in her womanly qualities, the Empress has never been popular in .Berlin, and she has had. to bear to a certain extent the iealodely.that Ger. mane, and especially Prussians, show 'to foreign birth and tendencies. She won the admiration of Germany during the Fjranco Prusian War, when she showed a spla.ndid example by her work for the Red Cross and the wounded. There is a story told of her which is worth repeating. O. one of her visits to the hos pital in Berlin a wounded soldier, not knowing her rank, asked her:. :.. . .... k Have you any relatives in the war ?' 'Yes,' she. replied, ' my father and. my bosband.' 'What are their names?' asked the soldier. , My father is called Wilhelm,' replied the Princess, ' but people call my husband I Unser Fritz.'

THE WAYS OF WOLVES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

THE WAYS OF WOLVES. t A recent number of :'Forest and Sbream" t (N Z.) contains another article on this sub-. 1 jeer, In which it is stated that, if treated h kindly, the young wolf will become as amiable in temper as any young dog, learning a name, and reepenoing to it as readily. " When a wolf is tamed you cannot drive him off you. 1 The wild wolves may howl never so lonely near him, but he simply seems to have a scorn of them and their ways." Heis a pic(e utre of treat cntentment. Nor does the writer think it would be difficult to tame the grown wolf. " The cowboys of Texas," he says, " sometimes ride them down and catch them with their lariats, and when they are not immediately killed by these rough riders, but kept a little while and a treated with some kindeess, they become ] quite docile, permattinA anyone to stroke them I gently about the head. Bat I have never known a serious effort to tame thefully grown wolf. I never knew but one tamed wolf to project the long bowl, and h...

HOW BEEF TEA SHOULD BE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

HOW BEEF-TEA SHOULD BE MADE. Beef-teas, as commonly made, are more of a snake and delusion than anythingelse. They often are given with the fatal notion that tbey are highly nutrituous, when they are nothing of the kind. They contain usually the soluble ingredients, some of the ex tractive, and are more scimulant than any thing else. It is supposed to be one office of meat to assist in the liberating of "etored up" force. This has been inferred from the immense energy the carnivorone beasts can all of a sudden set free. As beef-teaie ordinarily made, there is a considerable residue.which is thrown away. In that discarded portion the tisseae-forming principles of the meat are to be found, The other part is not to be despised, but it is not life-giving. Aesientific beef-tea should con tain all the nutrient and valuable constituents of the beef. The question, then, is: " How is the nutriment, ordinarily lost, to be re tained!" In this way: If 4uz. of finely-minced lean meat be added to...
