WTE have had several letters asking for information on the treatment of poultry; beut we were unable, through want of space, to deal'with the questioni; and,?s "we are' now in a position' and have made arrange' ments with " Glen:Iris" for his first chap ter on "Poultry Farming," we'feel:cosfi dent that it ivill ,be read ' with interest by our amateur breeders.

Ibunwr. Personal Preaching--'." Sir," said a lady, une fine Sunday, to a clergymap,just? (after: the irorning service was concluded, I "sir I hope that you will not preach that sermon again." " Why not, madam ?" "It was very personal." "Indeed? What part of it ?' "Oh, that part about worldly-mindedness and covetousness." "But how could that be personal-the re marks were general enough ?" " You may not have intended to apply it personally, but the congregation will." "To whom, madam ?" " Why, to me." The lady and clergyman parted, but iiot very cordially, as she could not extort from him a promise never to preach against worldly-mindedness any more. A wetk passed, and on the Sunday following the same clergyman preached on the subject f "providing all things honest," etc.; 'his text occurring in the service of the day, which generally guided him in the selection of sub jecter In this sermon-thought he-there is surely nothing to arouse the feelings of the lady who complained of the for...

LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 10 September 1887

LOCAL ITEMS. WE again remind those intending to take part in the deputation to the Rail way Commissioners, with a view to secure a siding for goods traffic at Elsternwick, now so urgently needed, that the hour appointed is noon on Wednesday next. From all we can gather there is every likelihood of the request being complied with. We trust, therefore, a good case will not be spoilt by any apathy being shown on the occasion. A good muster should put in an appearance punctually to time. The importance of this matter isour excuse forsagain alluding to it. TuE Sunday School children of the Church of Christ in Cheltenham held their usual tea to celebrate the anniver sary of the school in the Mechanics' In stitute 'on Monday evening last.

ROASTED! [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 10 September 1887

ROASTED ! TlE horrible and sickening spectacle just witnessed in England of persons being roasted alive should not be be lost on us in Victoria; but, un happily, such tragic and ghastly scenes are too often merely a nine days' wonder. The burning of the Opera Comique seems to have struck the volatile and gaily loving Parisian mind hard; but in the opinion of a leading French journal the lesson was wholly lost on John Bull. Now, however, by the sacrifice of 150 lives in the Theatre Royal, Exeter,. the danger ef being suddenly "cremated" in the midst of some side-splitting stage piece, has painfully forced it self on the public mind in England. Secretary Matthews has promised to do something to place English theatres on a better footing as regards the safety of their frequenters. Cer tainly there is room for it, and the zeal in this direction will be more praiseworthy than when spending it self in attempts to blacken the characters of the daughters of the Commisioners of England.

Parting the Hair. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 10 September 1887

'(arti5gf thie hlair. It is, truly, a strange fact that among people' in the remotest antiquity the "middle" or " woman's part" should have been so univer sal in both sexes, and in both the high and low walks of life. Mayhap nature taught man this simple trick of style, inasmuch as straight hair has a natural tendency to divide itself evenly on each side of the head. This is true of that ancient people the Egyptians, who. though they were wont to shave their heads through motives of cleanliness, yet in the making of their huge periwigs, displayed the middle parting. Of this custom the Greeks and Romans were borrowers. No vestige of the side parting is met with in the classio days. This deviation from the general custom was not destined to make its appear ance till many centuries later, and very like it is that it took its rise under some circum. staness which called for distinctive hair part. ings for the two sexes. Among the ancients, maid and matron divided their tresses in this m...

bealth. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 10 September 1887

tcalt . I Atmospheric Humidity;-The amount of aqueous vapor atat tue atmosphere is cap" able of-holding varies- with its -temperature; being greater when the air is warm, greater. in Summer than in Winter and greater in'a warm thana cold climate. The relative humidity exercises a powerful influence upon. animal and vegetable life. It is a well-known fact that the inhabitants of a dry climate are as a rule, thin and sallow, while those living in a moist insular country have well developed figures and fresh, ruddy complexions. It is to the greater dryness of this country that we owe the peeoliar phisique of our people, which is so different from that ofour English Ancestors. Schagintweit, a German, who travelled extensively in this country, notes this peculiarity, asserting that we are very proud of the leanness of our women: " Ac cording to Pettenkofer and Volt, the human body exhales from the lungs and skin twenty eight. ounces in twenty-four hours and of this a little over seventee...

Jennie June's Opinions.-" Than journalism Iheie are few ihtier things that a girl can try, il instead of onftining- herself to occasional fashion notes and gossip oorre spondmene, she takes a place on the regular -staff of a paper and shoulders some of the serious work of journalism. For the five years that I was on the weekly and Sunday Times the staff -ever exceeded three, and for the moat part included only two persons. That was in war t mes, too, when people ex pected a good deal of life and fire from their papers. Between u we wrote the whole sheet except the weekly s'ort story. "I was the exchange editor, the dramatic critic, the musical critic and the book reviewer. I never turned in less than two colOmns, broad columns they were too, of editorials and another column and a-half of minion editoriAl sketches of politicians and generals. With- all this I kept up a column and a half of my special department, parlor and sidewalk gossip,' and attended to pretty much all the mail an...

Coleridge and Pigopetta.-And do yr u know that * Tne Tale u t te Ancient Mi. riner" was born down yonder on the` rther side of this great sea-the Pacific? Ma eellan, or rather Fernando Magellano, the Portugese navigator, under the flag of Spain, took with him a historian, Pigopetta by name, who cave the world one of the greatest books that has ever been forgotten I I doubt if it has ever been translated into English, though it may be. But I found it in the library in Mexioe city; and its pages fairly glowed. Yes, I know that we are told that this weird and wonderful story of the " Ancient Mariner" is purely imaginary, opium eating and all that. But Coleridge was a ravenous reader. Lamb says he would utterly devour a library, even to the catalogue. And surely when reading up to found his colony in America, he must have fallen in with Pigo petta's account of the very first voyage around the circle of the globe. But of course, it is no disparagement to the great poet that I say this. I...

Then while the fingers idly stray In dalliance o'er the lyre, Sing to me love, some rare old song That gushed from heart of fire Song such as Grecian phalanx hymned, When freedom's field was won, And Persia's glory, with the light, Faded at Marathon.
