Boy Life on the Prairie. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 18 May 1894
BoyLifo on the Prairie. Some days were always spent in stacking the oate in the barn-yard, where the straw could be banked up for winter use, and thlse were the pleasantest of all the harvest days, for it was near the house where the girl ' could come out and chat occasionally and show their pretty calico gowns. The kitcheo was so handy that we could smell the doughnuts frying, and hear the plates being laid for dinner. Attracted by the ewarms of crickets and grasshoppers fal ling out of the grain, the chickens and turkeys came crowding noisily about the stack, singing joyously in their harsh,etrange fIsashion, as it giving thanks for their unez pected lenat. Neighbore passing by on their way to town stopped to '-gas" in tile Western fashion. "say, Adams 9" "llello I" "Y'r stack's turnin' over." "Oh, get out." " You bet it is. You'll slide off in another minute. Say " "Say it y'raelf; y've got y'r mouth open." " Go'n' to have a shindig t' wind up on?" " Mtbbe." " Wal I don't leave m...

Variety in Serving. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 18 May 1894
Vairiety ill Servilng. Much is said regarding the bill of fare to be found on the table of farmers. It is charged that it is too monotonous, that too much meat and not enough vegetables and fruit are used. This is probably true to some extent, yet an ecuao may be found in the fact that the farmer has not that wide range from which to choose as is oltered in tle city market. IHe has vegetables, it is true, if he has a garden, but he can have each vegetable only in its season. During the winter, however, there is not this variety procurable and unless a eupply of canned vegetables has been secuied, the choice must neoessarily be somewhat re stricted: Yet there are one or two diroctions in which an improvement might be mrade. The city resident, rsteeming a fresh egg no a great luxury, goes to the country, rprcting thie) will form a large portion of his diet. To his surprios, it is seldom they appear on the table.

How0 Ladies Bathe in Turkey. When a refined Turkish lady bithes, her attire is first removed. An attendant taken a glove-every day it is a now glove-of un dresecd silk. With her disengaged hand she pours over her mistress basin after basin of warm water. Thenby means of gentle frio. tion of the glove, she slowly removes the salts and impurities that are deposited on the skin. This finished, the attendant covers the lady from head to foot, by means of a mop of downy silk, with a lather made of a par. tienlar emolliment soap. Upon this soap, which is a kind believed to be peculiar to Turkey,depends much of the pencil-like soft. nese and snowy whiteneas of the skin, for which refined Eastern women are so remark able; it has the reputation of removing staine, spots and freckles that are not deeply marked into the cuticle. This part of the matter having been carefully performed, the lady is again deluged in water, heated to about one hundred degrees, end poured over her person from a bas...

He went to Mr Dow's lecture last Saturday wveek, and, in trying to follow the thread of the argument, evidently got some of the machinery of his brain out of place. All the week his conduct has been alarming. On the Monday le got us all together, and, borrowing one-and sixpence each from the comps., and threepence-halfpenny and a button from the office-boy, he said lie was going to start a Foncier System of his own; and, as he was to be the mortgagee, lie would use the money in the meantime. This appeared to us' all a sonuiwhat strange method of conducting business, nor were we in any the better humour when we saw a bottle of 'Wolfe's Aromatic" on his desk, evidently pur chased ...
