' But 1 never see a fly iu your house.' said her friend. *' How do you manage it V I'or my part, I must confess that screens or no screens, my summer weans to me olio long battle with the little pests.' ' My remedy is a very simple one,' said the good housekeeper, ' tiud 1 learned it years ago from iny grand mother, when 1 used to wateh her put ting bunches of lavender flowers around us to keep the flies away. My method is simpler. I buy five cents' worth of oil of lavender at the drug store aud mix il with the same quantity of water.

French Kid Gloves. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899
French Kid Cloves. A paragraph from au American paper makes a very explicit, charge respecting the manufacture of Kreueh kid gloves. We. are told that to make the kid m- fine aud pliant it is necessary to skin the kids before killing them. 'Old hands in the tradu alHrin that even if the skm is taken oft immediately after death it. never attains the softness which the best, kid gloves have. The kids are said, however, to be spared as much pain as possible during tile operation, being first stupified with au opiate. A gentle man of extensive experience in tlu- breeding and treatment of goats iu this country remarks upon the above state ment' that he hiis heard it denied by several persons iu the glove trade, bui himself is ouly disposed to doubt that portion of it whieb says that the kids are first stupified with an opiate.

Didn't Want Leeches. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899
Didn't Want Lcedies. ' 'What's good for a black eye ?' asked a tough-looking young man of a druggist the other evening. ' Leeches arc considered first-rate,' re plied the druggist, ' but where is the black eye ?' ' It'll come later on — In about an hour from now. I'm hunting a feller down lo lick him, and I thought I'd have things all fixed if I got a black eye. I'll probably drop in about 10 o'clock.' ' All right — come any time.' At 30.30 the young man returned, and after a glance at him the druggist said : ' So you didn't find your man ?' ' YeB, Idid;' was the reply. 'But youdldn'tliave a fight ?' ' Yes, I did.' ' Wjell, he didn't black your eye, any how ?' ' No, he didn't black my eye, but look here !' He held out five teeth which had bean knocked out of his mouth and his whole face ?wore a look of dlsguBt as he pawed them over with his finger and continued : ' ?

Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE NARROMINE NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899
Open Column. To thi Editor or tuk Nieeouine N*w« Dear Editor, — ' Where there is a will there's a way,' is one of those useful moral expressions which are greatly applauded, but one very rarely hears of its practical application to any extent. For instance, I hap pened to hear some remarks dropped by one of the Trustees of our Recrea tion Park (if such it can be called) that divers stuns of monies had been gran ted for improvements of same, and been expended by one or two members of that august body as they thought fit, without calling a Committee meet ing or giving any intimation that such was their intention. If the will was there, Mr. Editor, also was the. way, and with a little energy displayed by that individual, no doubt all meetings and expenditure of monies could have been arranged satisfactorily to the whole of the com mittee and to the public generally. But, Dear Editor, what is the public feeling, or is all sense of the desecra tion of God's acre devoid in1 the resi dents...
Hot Water and the Complexion. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899
Hot Water and the Complexion. Many ladies believe in hot water as a beautifier of ,the complexion. Some ac tually steam' their faces.' Such treat ment destroys the- firmness of the mus cular tissue, though Its effects, for a short time, ' seem all that is desirable. Tt Koftous the skin, and in the end pro duces wrinkles. Women who continue the practiceipra long time beget for thetnselves races that are soddened lookiug aiid. ffipial muscles that hang loosely 'about -flic cheeks, like those of au old giu-9rluker. If they would be really Ifeautiful; they must not be afraid of sunshine rand fresh air. Another beautifier is morning dew.

Death in the Lamp. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899
Death In the Lamp. Yes, death hides in the ordinary para iiin lamp securely enough (says Dr. Gor don Stables, iu the ' Scotsman'), and us ually quite unsuspected till in a moment, when least suspected, it springs forth aud claims its victim, or sets lire to house or mansion. Hardly a week passes that we do not read of some man, wo man, or child being burned to death in the most fearful way, yet Government has as yet made no step to lessen the sale of either dangerous lamps or dan gerous oil. I think it is the lamp itself that is to blame in nine cases out of teu. A glass lamp should never be used ; it is as thin as a sixpenny piece, so that the slightest tap or touch given acci dentally while lifting anything past it does the mischief, tb.fi oil flows out, aud ignites, then woe be to all within its reach ! But the top may not be screwed well home, and the flame may. reach the oil. This often happens when the lamp is old. Again, when a reflector is used, the oil in the glass lamp get...

Coffee and Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899
Coffee and Sleep. Nothing that can be said in any way calculated to lead to the rational treat ment of one of the most common mental ailments of the age is said in vain. Therefore when newspapers take to con demning good coffee, under the false notion that it tends to sleeplessness, it is time for medical men to bring them up with a round turn. There are many forms of insomnia iu which coffee does excellent service. A cup of this bever oge, if well made and of the best quality, has a marvellously soothing effect ou thesystein. It seems to remove congestion of the brain, aud. therefore, positively tends to healthful sleep. There is no neces sity to become a coffee drunkard, though I don't think ten cups a day would hurt one ; and a' doctor iu France, who still attends his patients, although 303 years old, used to drink forty cups a day. In the Arctic regions my messniates aud I myself drank coffee all day long. A huge urn was constantly simmering over the stove. It calnied aud warmed...
