The Star of Bethlehem. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894

The Star of Bethlehem. ' The Star of Bethlehem, or the Pilgrim, as it is also called,' said the editor of a scien tific journal of New York, ' may appear at any moment-. It was due in 1880, and ought certainly to be here now -that is, assuming that it shows itself every 800 years. I be licvo it has been traced back as far as 320, and there is certainly no reason why it should forget to pay us a visit this time. One can never tell, however, what a variable star will do. Its appearance would strengthen the popular belief that it is the very same Btar that guided the wise men from the East to Jerusalem,' Baldness. — That women do not become bald so often as men is probably because thoy preserve the cushion of fat under the scalp longer than men do. Tliey do not wear their hats as ranch as men; nor are theBe so close-fitting, or ninde of such impermeable material. They also give more attention tn the hair, and do not wet the head so often. Mr W. A. Ashe, of Qnebee, reports that the Esqu...

The Management of Money. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894

The Management of Money. Various publications have from time to time agitated ths question of how the best living is to be obtained from a small income. It iB easy to theorise on paper ; but the plan adopted by Bomc housekeepers of dividing up in advance thesum yearly received for house hold expenses, is not a bad one. First lay aside the house rent, that 'is bcBt paid by chcque qarterly, or every month, if you pre fer. Then allow bo much a week for the table, for coal, lights, wages, dress, Bchool bills, pew rents, etc. Then for a contingency fund you hnve the difference botween these expenses and your income, upon which you must depend for paying doctors' bills, travel ing expeuses, flower garden, charities, etc. Having settloi! all these things in your mind, write all your figures down in your account book and on the first of every month, if you can arrange to do s--. draw one-twelfth of your income, then divide. Have a number of little muslin bags labeled house, fuel, dress, sun...

A Parisian Wedding Custom. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894

A Barislan Wedding Custom. Parisian brides and bridesmaids do not take with tbem to church the lovely bunch ' of white flowers which tradition requires the bridegroom and bis belt man to' supply; but it . is incumbent on the former to beap lovely blossomB in the carriage tbat sball convey bim and his newly, made wife back to tho house of ber narents after the ceremony. . This is a' very pretty custom and deserves to be kept up. Much more beautiful than the circular and formally arranged bouquets, that used to be presented by tbe gentleman , anxious to get into tbe good graces of bis lady, are the rustic baskets of reeds filled with growing flowers decorated with bows of ribbon carefully chosen as to colour. Long aftir tbe poor roses or what not, subjected to the process of wiring, have faded and gone, the plants flourish— a pleasant feast for the eyes and a charming decoration for tbe daawingroom. r, if

Who Discovered Gunpowder ? [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 9 January 1894

Who Discovered Gunpowder ? When it is considered what an important part gunpowder has played in the wars of the world, and in the arts in times of peace, it is not a little remarkable that the dis covery ia a matter of considerable uncer tainty. It has been the custom to ascribe its invention to Bertholdus or Michael Schwartz, r^'ordelier monk, of Goslar, south of Bfunswiea, in Germany, About theyear 1320. It uas been maintained by many writers, however, tbat gunpowder was known much earlier in various parts of the World. Roger Baeon, who was born in 1214, refers, about the year 1207, to an explosive mixture of the nature of gunpowder, as known pre. vious to bis day, as being employed for the purpose of diversion, and as producing a noise like thunder and flashes of light ning. It has beon maintained by some that the Chinese and Hindoos possessed it centuries even before Bacon's time. The following chronological statement shows tho controversy in reference to Schwarz, or Schwartzi t...
