Kafir Women. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 13 January 1899

Kafir Women. Sir George Robertson, British political agent at Gllgit and Chitral, has. accord ing to -the 'Homeward Mail,' forwarded an. interesting: report on Kaflrlstan to the India Office. He gives an astonish ing- account of the benighted state of the women, and, indeed, of the natives gener ally:— The women In Kaflrlstan are in most respects, little better than household slaves, but in some ways they enjoy £ar too mucn liberty. A Kafir husband is only jealous when his wife's misbehavi our brings him no profit. A man who owns no cattle looks to his wife to help ?him In getting some. A trap will be laid tor some susceptible youth with wealthy parents; the husband will suddenly sur prise the erring couple; the neighbours will be summoned, and the raeh gallant will have to pay damages, besides being compelled to provide a feast for the com munity. If for any reason a Kafir desires to get Tld of Mb wife, he sells her, or, If lie cannot find a purchaser, he sends her away without cer...

HOW MANY MATCHES DO YOU USE ? [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 13 January 1899

HOW MANY MATCHES DO YOU USE ? It 1b rather curious to find that in Great liritain we use more matches than any other people. The average is eight a. hsad per day. Belguun comes next with seven a head, and America third with Bix, No wonder matches are cheap, for one pound of phosphorus is fcutticient to head 1,000,000 matches. One linn in Austria uses, ten tuns of phosphorus a year, and turns out 25,000,000,01)0 mutches. Another company, an English one, uses inn nnn nnxn^a r\F ui.lnliiti. *7nn ftftft foot nt choice white pine timber, and 150 tonB of strawljoard for their boxes in tbe same time. The latest fashionable match has a mixture of camphor and frankincense in the paste of which )l-p head in made, and gives such a dull cat e fragrance it is quite a pleasure to light it.
