"If I [?] Rich." [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

'It I Wnz Kicli.' Two ragged little children were stand ing on the kerbstone watching the car riages aB they drove up and stopped to let out their occupants. The street waifs were dirty and rag ged and mo doubt hungry, for the basket they carried between them was empty, and the face of the younger of the two was tear-stained. ' They must be awful rich,' he said to the girl at his side. 'Jimmy,' she answered, 'dye know wot I'd do if I wuz rich— as mud, like them ? I'd Jes set up straight In my carriage, an* If the folks didn't get out o' the way I'd run over 'em, bo I wud.' 'I wouldn't,' said Jimmy slowly and solemnly.. 'If I wuz rich I wouldn't, want no carrldge, nor bosses, nor no thin'. I'd go Jest as fast as ever I cud to heven, an' bring me mudder back agen.' He finished with a sob, and the girl looked at him with an air of superior disdain. 'You're a silly,' she said, but her voice was soft, and sbe took his hand in hers as they moved away.

The Sketcher. Plano—Playing. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

The Sketcher. t'iaiio-pmyfitfj. By PADBltE^YSKI, in the ' Weekly Sun.' Young girls who have learned to strum a little ou Uie pianoforte, being obliged to do something for their own support, turn their attention to niuuic teaching as the easiest; means of gain ing a livelihood, without any reference whatever . to their ability or qualities tions. They can tell where tbe notes come on the staff and also on the key board, and they can play a few little waltzes, schotiiscues, and a few trifling compositions called 'pieces,' to wbicli tbe composer has given some fancy name such as a ' nocturne,' or a ' reverie,' or a ' maiden's prayer,' or some similar title, which has no real reference what ever to the nature of tlie work. Such teachers begin at. tin; wrong end. Their one idea seems to bo to tench their pupils ' tunes' or ' piei-es.' They teach them the notes on the staff and ou tbe keyboard, aud then set about drum ming into them some utterly valueless '? piece.' To teach or to learn t...

Short Story. A Case of Conscience.

Oaunan's winsome daughter, Dorothy. Miss Canuau sat at the piano, while Tom, under pretext of turning over her music, stood close beside her, all plea sautry and courtesy. Tom-Hall aud well-huilt— showed at his best that evening— 1 noted it with gall in my heart ; and his jovial fare was alteaui with smiles. His diltgeut atiuudaiiue on Dorothy Oaniuin had heeu decidedl3' more pro iiouuced of late, lending colour to the rumour then current to the effect that he and slie were to make a match of it. From my seat -in the embrasure of the window, with bitterness and envy rank- ' blip in my breast, I watched them. ...

Mantel Border and Curtains. One of the easiest things to make, and one of the most effective wheu made, is n mantel border and curtaius. The chief difficulty is to arrange, the mantel border so that it shall hang properly, not puck --rinsr .it. the corners or draniuir ungrace fully iu the centre. But this difficulty is easily overcome. First, however, for the mantel-board. Decide on the size you will want, and then get a deal board an inch thick-^flot thinner, or the he.-it will warp it — cut to your incasuranicut. At each end you can have a clip lived to fa.sten the board to the nianlel-sh«;lf, this being a far better and simpler plan than nailing the board to the wall.

To Clean Doeskin Riding Gloves. First wasii iu soap and water to re move the dirt ; then pull into shape. Be careful'not to wring the gloves, us that spoils aud shrinks them. Then lay the gloves on a 1able mid rub them with colouring matter made into a- paste with lnw i\v vhu»ET!iv. The luntwisil tft he employed for this purpose will depend on the colour of the gloves. If white, pipeclay should be used ; light yellow gloves require yellow ochre to be mixed with the pipeclay ; bul'if bright yellow, yellow ochre alone should be employed. When thu gloves are dark-coloured, uso jj mixture of fuller's earth aud rotten stone. When flTis has been done, the gloves should be dried gradually, other wise they are very apt to shrink. When the gloves are half-dried, they require to be well rubbed and stretched ; if this is not done, iustea'd of being soft aud pli able, they will be stiff and likely to tear when put on the hands.
