I Passing Dotes. 1 * ? 3 ?-? ?)? '[- ?»*? I* By 'OTUS.' When the members of the Chamber of Commerce pro tested to the Prime Minister against the inconvenience caused by the cessation of a regular weekly mail service, Mr. M1 Arthur said that al though the business commun ity was, generally speaking, in favor of economy in public matters, there was such a thing as false economy. Certainly 1 The only kind of economy Mr. M' Arthur believes in is that which touches the pockets of the laboring classes. All economy that works to save the State from being fleeced by wealthy syndicates is ' false ' economy. * * * Mr. Reid's reply to the Chamber of Commerce mag nates is amusing and pathetic at the same time. Mr. Reid doesn't believe in the White Australia fetish, and would pre fer to wipe out the prohibition against black slave labor( that's what it really is) on the mail boats. 'But the Government would meet with no sympathy in Parliament.' So, in order to retain office, Mr. Reid prefers to ...

For the most nurt. however, these garments are put in .1 tub and wanhed very much like the week's washing. Where soap and water oan be UBed, the soap is of th« variety known as palm oil. A bit of goods is always experimented with beforehand and if this is not salisV factory they are dipped ia a vat oj benzine or naphtha, II not too soiled or too complex in make they are laid on a slab and scrubbed with either jialm oil suds or benzinu. Many gar ments supposed to have been restored to their natural colors are really dyed over. Fast colors iu wool and silk ore waBhed in soap bark. The secret of tbe use of this material, is to have it strong. Two tablespoonf ids . are used to two quarts of Svoter which is then boiled Down to one-half, strained and added to a pailful of warm water.

FRUIT GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 March 1905

FRUIT GARDEN. Manuring fruit trees ought to be attended to, so tbat time is allowed for suuh rains as occur to wash the goodness from the manures down to the vicinity of the roots. All hardy fruit trees are benefited immensely by suck assistance (excepting young ones from four to six yearn old, which, not having yet fruited much, are too vigorous), old standard trees in parti culiar, more especially such as bore very heavy crops of fruit last year. Besides old decayed, or other manures, mulchings of ashes, lime (where chalk subsoils do not' exist), road scrapings, &c, assist such trees os peciully such as grow on grass hinds, more than is generally imagined.

REAL LIFE IN ARMENIA. I want to tell you a little about the way the people get their living. Turkey is practically a free trade country, about everything being im uorted from Europe. Ten or fifteen rears ago a man could earu a scanty living. Now he is left almost to starve. !-et him work as hard as he can, he is unable to make tbe poorest kind of a living; as there is no machinery to compete with foreign market?. The Turks are opposed to any kind of machinery, regarding all machines as ' Satans,' as Dr. Hamlin tells oh in hie book entitled ' Among the Turks.'1 I will tell you an inci dent that happened a short time ago. In the town of Messin there was a thread mill to which the owners thought best to add a cotton factory, but it was impossible to get a permit to build it. After along, hard strug gle the Turkish Government told them that the goods were imported from Europe and brought the Government in a fair revenue, and that if they manufactured them that revenue would be lost to T...

THE FIRST RAILWAY IN CHINA. It eeemA that a syndicate of mer ohants and others - interested in de veloping the trade of China were moved to build a railway from Shanghai to Woosung, a distance of a little over nine miles. The land was bought from 237 different proprietors, all of whom wanted additional boun* ties for tho disturbance of ancestral graves. One proprietor claimed to have buried ou bis plot no less than five mothers-in-law, for whom he must be paid. Satisfying him naturally led to a marvellous multiplication of dead mothers-in-law, who soon became the chief item in the cost of the land. Xext, the sellers of tbe land claimed the privilege of supplying the labour aud pocketing the wages each on his own just-mid section. Tbc claim wns satisfactorily ad justed. Tho road was built, supplied with rolling etocl., and iu fifteen months carried somo 750,000 pasaea ? irers. But tine brilliant success met with a sudden blow.
