FARM AND STATION. AGRICULTURAL BREVITIES. COMPILED BY PLOUGHSHARE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

FARM AND STATION. AG ICUIJTUIJ{RAL BREVITIES. COMPILED BY PLOIGHI-ISIARE. Farmers, election time is drawing near. What are you going to do-Let things rip or be up and doing? If you are going to adopt the former course re-elect a lot of your old "apathetics;" if the latter, then start to organise your forces. Branch boards, now is your time to be up and doing. These institutions should be the organising centres, and when a suitable man has been selected then support him all you know, I see Mr. Bovill has uttered a "wail" in, the columns of the "Examiner'" lately because farmers did not support him, Now, Mr. Bovill is, I have no doubt.. a well meaning man, and if he would learn to listen and not talk too much I believe he would not make a bad mnembear. I doubt very much,, however, if he would over get the support of any par ticular body. I have heard his chances discussed in the Devonuport district, and personally with. anything but the. weakest opposition against him, I would never b...

MUSIC & THE DRAMA, DRAMATIC AND VARIETY ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

MUSIC & THE DRAMdlA BY TOUCHSTONE. DRAMATIC AND VARIETY ITEMS. The 1M'Adoo Minstrels, also the Val dares, did well in Launceston during the Christmas holidays. Efforts are being out forth to induce "The Muffs" to journey to Hobart and give two entertainments in aid of the patriotic fund. The Dampier Dramatic Company will play a season in Launceston, start ing on the 17th inst. and concluding on the 23rd. The repertoire will consist of "Briton and Boer," "The Three Mus keteers," and "Robbery Under Arms." Referring to the production of "Bri ton and Boer" at the Hobart Theatre Royal, the "Mercury" says:-"In the second act, where the threats of Kruger to drive the British into the sea were effectively introduced, there was much hooting-a very opposite state of feel ing to that displayed when our Rifles formed up to the enemy to the lively lilt of 'Tommy Atkins.' This was al together too much for the gallery, who gave a tremendous outburst of cheer ing. The mounting is little sho...

MUSTARD AS A REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

MUSTARD AS A REMEDY. Mustard is a valuable remedy. Two or three teaspoonfuls of ground mus tard stirred into half a pint of water will act very. promptly as an emetic, milder and easier to take than salt and water. Equal parts of ground mus tard and flour or meal made into a paste with warm water and spread on a thin piece of muslin, with another piece of muslin laid over it, forms the indispensable mustard plaster. It is almost a specific for colic when ap plied for a few minutes oer the "pit of the stomach." For all internal pains and congestions there is no remedy of such general utility. It acts as a counter-irritant by drawing the blood to the surface; hence in severe cases of croup a small mustard plaster should he applied to the back of the child's neck. The same treatment will relieve almost any case of headache. A mustard plaster should be moved about over the spot to be acted upon, for if left in one place it is liable to blister. A mustard plaster acts as well when at a d...

ELECTRIC SHOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

ELECTRIC SHOCKS. "It is a singular fact," said an elec trician, "that the human body is cap able of becoming more or less inured to shocks from live wires. The employees of a big electric light works, for in stance, are continially receiving shocks .that would disable an ordinary man, but are apparently none the worse for the experience. I remember some time ago a couple of young fellows came in contact accidentally with a live wire, and both received exactly the same cur rent. One of them was an assistant, and had met with mishaps before. He was knocked off his feet and momen tarily stunned, but recovered in less than two minutes. The other man, who was a stranger, fell over as if struck by lightning, and it was fully half an hour before he showed the least signs of returning consciousness. He was laid up for several days, and, oddly enough, was much the more powerful, physically, of the pair. I have known several cases of practically the same sort. The enginesdrivers of the Lon do...

GALVANIC CURRENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

GALVANIC CURRENTS. An unusual and interesting case of galvanic action exerted at a distance is reported from an Italian source. The captain of the port of Leghorn brought an action against the owners of certain wooden yachts with copper bottoms to compel them to remove their vessels from the neighbourhood of a number of new warships and other vessels with iron or steel hulls lying in the same part of the harbour. The London en gineer is authority for the statement that the iron vessels were damaged by galvanic currents set up from the cop per bottoms of the yachts. The fact of damage to steel and iron ships hav ing taken place, and of its being due to this cause, was clearly established, and as a consequence the captain's order foi the removal of the copper-bottomed wooden yachts from the Darsena har bour of Leghorn was supported by the decree of the court. The article pro ceeded to explain that the galvanic contact in this case was established by the ropes, which were made fast to ...

WHAT TO DO WITH STALE BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

BREAD. The amount of stale bread that is thrown into the swill bucket by some housekeepers is appalling,and it is done without a thought of the many shil lings thrown away in the course of a year. To the eyes of an economist the bread and other things that are reck lessly dumped into the waste bucket seem sufliciently good to be used in preparing delicacies that would be ap petising. Slices of bread, no matter how stale, make good toast if held for a minute over glowing coals. Pile them neatly on a plate and send to the table hot, or dip each slice quickly in a dish of boiling water, to which has been added a large lump of butter and a little salt. This is called water toast, and should be served in a heated cover dish. If milk toast is preferred, pile these dipped slices in a deep dish; boil a p[int of milk, stir in a teaspoonful of corn starch moistened with cold' milk or water, a large lump of butter, and a little salt. Stir all together until it begins to thicken, then pour over...

SCIENCE AND HEALTH. SUBSTITUTE FOR GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

SCIENCE AND HEALTH. --- SUBSTITUTE FOR GOLD. An invention for producing gold-like alloy from copper and antimony, pa tented in Germany, covers a metallic alloy to take the place of gold, which, even-if exposed for some time to the ac tion of ammoniacal and acid vapouis, does not oxidise or lose its gold colou:. It can be rolled and worked like gold. The alloy consists of copper and anti mony in the approximate ratio of 110 to 6, and is produced by adding to mal ten copper, as soon as it has reached a certain degree of heat, the said percen tage of antimony. When the antimony has likewise melted and entered into intimate union with the copper, some charcoal ashes, magnesium and lime spar are added to the mass when the latter is still in the crucible.
