WOMEN IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894
WOMEN IN ITALY. A lecture on this subject was given re. cently by Signora Zampini Silazaro, an . Italian lady interested in improving the condition of the lives of her country women. The Signora said that women in her native country were still looked upon as the moral slaves of men, as was illustrated by the civil and penal cod', and a low opinion of them way very general Nothing was provided to ely rate their charecters, or to make them self-reliant or strong. Though lhrge sums of money were spent by the Government for national*nlture, few benefits were con ferred on women, notwithstanding the fact that women in Italy had in vast years held high positions and exercised a considerable influence in letters, science, and art. Besides the low state of educa tion, the social position of woman in Italy was much Vo be deplored. She had no word in her own love --ffars, and was married at an early age to a man, in many cases unrefined and beutal, who had the power at any time to deprive her...

THE TANNIN TREATMENT OF PHTHISIS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894
THE TANNIN TREATMENT OF PHTHISIS. Dr E. Honze, of the Hospital St. Jean, Brussels, after having tried the tannin treatment on all his phthisical patients for the last year and eight months, states as the result of his observations that it gives excellent redults in all stages of th: disease, and especially in the condition where cavities exist. Indeed he has n. hesitation in declaring that of all the different krinds of treatment for phthisis which he has tried this has given by far the most encouraging results. The dose he employs ordinarily is fifteen grains, which quantity is taken three times a day. it is, as a rule, well borne. Where this is not so, it is ordered to be taken with meals. After the first few days the expectoration and the -wests diminish, the cough decreases, and in many cases I the.anpetite undergoes a marked iosprove ment. .

The Farm. THE VALUE OF WOOD ASHES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
The F-rwm. TEE VALUE OF WOOD ASHEB. As a fettiliser wood ashes often have nr atual valne in excess of their theoretical' aine, and they have an even greater value as a medicine for farm animals, and as a necessary part in soap making on the farm. As a medicine for farm animals, the experience of years has very plainly shownme their value. I am certain that they are very efficient aids in preserving the health and increasing the thrift of farm animals As I h~ave now raised swine rather extensively for more than twenty years without chol1era, or swine plague, a-din that timehave not lost one per cent. of my hogs from disease, I think I am competent to speak of those things that make for the health of swine; and to wood ashes I attrach much value as a preventive of disease. I keep wood ashes, and charcoal mixed with salt, c-onstantly before my swine in a large covered box with holes two-by-six inchee near the bottom. The hogs will work the mixture out through these holes as fast as the...

THAT MUSICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
THAT MUSICAL PIG. Some years ago a clever player of that queer instrument the bassoon was upon a tour in Ireland with an operatic company, and after a successful season in Dubin, he had a few days of leisure before open ing at Cork. Our friend took advantage of the oppor tunity to go into the country, and took his quarters at a little wayside inu, near Skibbereen. Hes took his bassoon for the sake of practice, and in order notto annoy the inmates of the house, used occasion ally to run over a difmicult pasrage in a loft over the stable. One day during a pause after practico he heard voices outside. "Doubtless," thought the musician, "they are criticis ingemy performance" and he listeL d to the speakers. " Whisht! Patrick, did ye hear that now 1 Sure its the ould pig, takin' a les eon in muria.'' "oYe omadhaun l" cried his companion, " what music would ye get from a pig but a gruant?" At this moment the musician gave a flourish on the bassocn, and the unbeliever was convinced. " Bego...

"Oh," replied thebo Chancellor, "I have a very simple method. 3My wife know-s them pretty well, and, when she sees That they are with me, she generally contrives to come in and call me away upon some pre text or other." He had scarcely finished speaking when the Princess put her head in at the door and said; " Otto, you must come and take your medicine. You ought to have had it ten minutes ago."

No Title [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
IT is an ascknowledged fact that no country can be prosperous where tile wage of labor is on a low scale. All history proves this contention, and just at present we in Victoria are hay ing the fact brought home to us. It has come to light that the labor em ployed, for instance, under the Metro politan Board of Works is being paid at a rate that is usually a.soiated with Chinese, or Egyptian fellaheen. Artisahs have been worked ten hours a day for a remuneration of 2s. 6d., and even the most skilled tradesmen have been unable to earn more than 20s. a week. W"hen a great body like the Mfetropolitan Board tolerates such wages it is safe to assume that lesser institutions are not particular as to how their work is done. The various municipalities around Melbourne are getting contracts executed at a price that scarcely pays for horse feed, much ess fair wages. The result is very plain. Most of the municipalites are a semi-insolvent condition. Thcv cannot get in their rates because theis ...

THE ANT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
THEf ANT. ,, ,:- .-.-_ax T A '.. - .Thls rxsting from my labours I have often stndled the ant at his work andl have never -fond anything new about him-certainly nothing to change my opinion of him. It 'soms to me that in the matter of intellect, the ant is a strangely overrated bird. Dur ing many summers now I have warichedhim, when I might have been engaged in better i~busness, and I have not yet come across a livng at that seemed to have any more eoseo than a dead one. I refer to the .ddinsif ant, of course; I have had no ezhti'nc of those:wonderful Swiss and African ones which vote, kdep drilled armies, hold slavee and debate in Parliatment.

He goes out foraging, makes a capture, and then what does he d...
