A PARADISE IN THE TROPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

A PARADISE IN THE TROPICS. Singapore, the Tropic island in the Straits Settlements, is a veritable Garden of Eden. It is a land of alternate sunshine and showers, for the average rain is about an hour a day. Tim climate is not a very hot one at any time, and it is never cold. If the thermometer rises above 85deg. at noon, the day is universelly de clared to be hot, and if at night the mercury drops below 75deg„ and the blanket; which lies folded at the bottom of every bed has to be pulled up, the weather is considered bitterly cold. Vegetation is profuse. The mangostine, pulled in the early morn ing from the tree and kept in the ice-, box till luncheon-time, is one of the most delicious fruits of creation. It tastes like a mixture of grape and peach and plum, and is so delicate that even the short voyage to Madras or Calcutta spoils it, except in very rare cases. The dorian is a fruit which many of the dwellers in Singa poie delight in, and which the China men especially give very l...

BOOT JELLY AND SHIRT COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

BOOT JELLY AND SHIRT COFFEE. Somo time ago a London scientist nctuully regaled liis friends with both of the above delieaeics, and all of them pronounced the repast excellent. IfBounds incredible, but is not so really.The jolly was made by first cleaning the boots and then boiling them with g"oda under a pressure*of two atmospheres. The tnniiicacid of the leather combined with salt, made tan nate of soda, and the gelatine rose to the top, wlionco it was removed and dried. From this gelatine, with suitable flavouring material, the jelly was readily concocted. Next as to the coffee: this was not only made of old shirts, but sweetened with the same material. The linen, after thorough washing, was treated with nitric acid, whioli acting on the lignite (woody substance) con tained in the tibre, produce glucose, or grape sugar. This, roasted, made excellent imi tation coffee, which some of the unroasted glucocso nicely sweetened.

THE STRENGTH OF SHELL FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

I THE STRENGTH OF SHELL FfSH. If a man possessed strength in proportiun to the torse required to open an oyster he could lift nearly three millions of pounds. If any one is at all sceptical about this, let , him attempt with his two unaided hands tc i pull the shell of an oyster apart. The Medi terranean cockle bos a pulling strength equal to 2,000 times its own weight. A limpel i when in the water will pull nearly 4,00( times its weight, and a flea will draw' nearlj , 1,500 times its weight. The strength of mar I seems puny indeed when compared with these small specimens of animal life.

A UNIQUE TOBACCO-BOX. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

A UNIQUE TOBACCO-BOX. An interested company of Colonial, American, ttiid other visitors accepted an invitation from the overseers of Westminster to inspect their famous Tobacco Box, which was on view at the Town Hall in Caxton street. Tho box is the property of the Past Overseers' Society of Westminster, and dates from tho year 1713, when Mr. H. Monck, an Overseer of the Poor, presented the Society with a horn tobacco-box (?in. by 5in.) of about three ounce capacity, and valued at a groat. In recognition of tho gift it was decorated with a silver rim, bearing tho donor's name. Tho Overseers for tho next year affixed a band of silver on the sides, and others in their turn added further plates, until tho box was completely covered. An outer eoso was then made, and covered witliengraved plates, all in silver. There aro now six boxes, the largest outside case being some 36in. high and 24in. across, tho whole weighing close upon a hundredweight.

QUEEN'S WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

QUEEN'S WEATHER. In England " Queen's weatlior " is a pro verb. In Italy it is a crccd. Ono year boforo the Queen went to Floronic, the crops wero Buffering, and the " contadini " were pray ing for rain. But they changed their form of prayer. *' They say it is no uso to ask the rain whilo the Queen is here; so they burned j candles on the Shrine of the Madonna that she may grant the Empress of India a quick departure and a safe journoy. The devout add, ' May the Mndonna sond her here again when wo have a wet season, and are praying for sunshine." . ' Tho general faith in " Queen's weather " in Florence is quite laughable. *' People make plans for picnics a week boforo the time, and if any ono says, * Suppose it Bhould rain?'another replies, ' No fear of it. The Queen of England is coming here.' A farmer will bemoan his corn turning yellow in the blade, and if ho 1b humorous, might say, ' It is no uso for us to want rain if the British Queen is coming.'

FILLING A BULLDOG'S TEETH. A powerful and ferocious bulldog, owned by Dr. Ward, of Scanton, Pa., enjoys tho distinction of having a big gold filling in ono of his inoisors, and many who have caught a gleam of tho gold in his mouth, wonder how the filling was done. The dog's name is Gem. Ho is ae ugly in appcar»nco as a prize winner in a dog show. His nose is a mass of wrinkles, and his eyos lmvo a wicked gleam for any ono but his master and Mrs. Ward. Ilis affection for thorn, howovor, knows no bounds. When Gem was discovered one day clasping his muzzle between his paws, rolling over and over on tho iloor, and moaning, his mouth was examined, and it was found tlmt thero was a big cavity in ono of tho incisors. It was docided that a dentist should bo con" suited. Tho dontist found that it would bo necessary to use a rubber dam, and he pro mised to fill tile cavity provided Gem was etherised.

FOR THE GOOD OF THE UMBRELLA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

FOR THE GOOD OF THE UMBRELLA. Tho right way to roll up your umbrella is to take holfl of the ends of the ribs and the stick with the samo hand, and hold them tightly enough to prevent their being twisted whilo the covering iB being twirled around with tho other hand. Then your umbrella will be as nicely dressed as when you bought it, and the.only wear and tear will be on the cloth. It is twiBting the ribs out of shape around the Btick and fasteningthem there that spoilt most of the umbrellas. Never hold the um brella by the handle alone when you roll it up, and you will tind it will last longer and cost Icbs for repairs.

However, the large concourse of spectators assembled on this .occasion to witness a further matrimonial function paid a high.tribute of respect to the par ties concerned.
