* BRAHMA AND TIE BRAHMIN. A Hindoo died, a proper thing to do When fifty years united to a sbrew. His soul released from earth to Heaven files, Swift to the gates of Brahma's Paradise. ' Hast been .through. Purgatory ' Brahma said ; SIhave been married I' and he honghis head. ' Eter, now enter, right joyfully, my son, Marriage and Purgatory are as one.' He scarce had entered in the gardens fair, Another Hindoo craved admission there. The seli-same question Brahma asked again ' Host been thro' Purgatory ' 'No What then?' ' Thou canet not enter r did the god reply. 'He who went in was there no more than I.' 'True, true, my son, but he has married been, And so on earth aone penance for his sin I' ' Married !' quoth he, ' why, I've been married twice !' ' Begone.' said Brahma,' '.we have no fools in Paradise!' C.J IM
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 30 June 1888
AGRIOULTURAL NOTES. The weather generally continues very mild for the month of June, and there is etill a fair growth in the grass. The young crops look healthy and vigorous, no frosts of any consequenceo having yet occurrcd to check their growth. In most of the wheat growing districts the seed has nearly all been sown, portions of the Wimmera distrlot, perhaps, beirg the exception. There are complaints from one or two distriots regard. ing the startling increase of the rabhit?, while other eorrespondents again speak of this post as having been quite mastered. Heavy rains fell in parts of New South Wales last week, which has had the effoct of oausing the seasonable farming operations to be actively pushed forward in the agrloul tural distriots. In the pastoral diestieot more rain is wanted. The limited nqmber of stook travelling at present is caused by the deficiency of water and feed on several of the principal routes, which has made all movements of stook more or lees risky. Prepa...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. FASHION ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 30 June 1888
T?HE LADIES' 'COLUMN. Br VIvA. FASEION ITEMS, The day has passed when Fashion so far triumphed over good taste as to tolerate the loose-fitting, untidy-looking hat or bonnet that is always getting out of place and giving a alip-shod air to an elegant toilette. B3efore it is bought a hat is fitted, and unskilled, indeed, is the milliner who cannot secure a perfect fit. A Venus would look quite an ordinary woman in a hat too loose for her, and a very Grisolda would lose her patience if her bonnet slipped off. Notwithstanding the many colours that prevail in chapeaux as well as in costumes, it must be acknowledged that green, black and red are the smartest shades in vogue. Groone are in endless variety, and all unite so harmoniously with other colours, that it is not difficult to account for their popu. larity. They are shown in felt, velvet and cloth hats, in large and small shapes, now with elaborate trimmings, and again ohal.. longing admiration by their very simplicity. Exaggerated...

Sugar as an Agent for Preserving Meat. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 30 June 1888
Sugar as an Agent for Prsoo;rvng Meat. A :special report made tothe Frich B?liniter of Agriculture asserts, that sugar is an excellent agent for preserving meat, and posseee esolne advantages over salt. _:iIn faot, alt absorbs a portion of..the.nutritive cob stances and of,che,flavaur. of meat When tn anialysia isnmade ofa .eolu, ion of the. ealt dis.olved by -water contained in-meat, we find albumidoid bddie, extractive suastance, potasse, and phosphoric acid. Salt deprives meat of the subeances so much the more readily in proportion as it enters the tissues more deeply or0cts for a longer time. It then results that the meat when taken from the oelire solution has loot nutritive elements of genuine importance Powdered suga?r, on the contrary, being lebs soluble, produces lees liquid. It forma around 'he mee?t t solid crust, which removes very little wn'er from it, and does not alter is taoto. Thus pre eerv.d, it eudisce to immerse the. meat in water before using it. Although this t...
A NORTHERN POLITICIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 30 June 1888
A NOBTHERN POLITICIAN. Next to Victoria there is no colony in the Anstralasian group which is characterised by snoh "go.aheadnees' as Queensland. It may be eaid that this is in a large measure due to the fact that its natural resources are great. the territory is vast. and there is coceecuently ever9 encouragemeont for speculation. ThatBis. of course, true, but it should be remembered chat the vast resourcee of the northern colony would not have been so rapidly developed had it not been for the enterprise of its colonistse Wise legislation ban much, very muoh, to do with the progress of any colony, particularlyin its early e?Oe, when its population is emall. and its reveunue correepondingly limited.

TENEMENT HOUSES IN NEW YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 30 June 1888
TENEI!EN'T HOUSES IN NEW YORIE:.: Slumming in New York provides writers with pictures as sensational as any we are, acerustomed to at home. A lady, discuseiog in "The liorum" the tenement-house problem 'in New York, illusnetrates the overorowding. in these striking sentences :-" In some rooms you will in the daytime see mattresses piled up till they truoh the a~iling; at night, when the 'boarders' stream in from their day's work, 'these mattresses are token down and spread over the floor, touching each other. Forty five people sometimes sleep in one room." There are said to be 30,000 tenement houses in New York, and 2,000 of them are recognised in official slatistics to be " very bad."
DEATHS CAUSED BY WILD BEASTS. (ASIAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 30 June 1888
DEATHS CAUSED BY WILD BEASTS. (AsIArr.) On ja former occasion we showed cause for questioning wheth-r the 25,000rs. which the Government pays annually for killing poisnous snakes are judiciously expendod. This sum is only a fraction of the 1.89,005re. which the Government p id in 1886 for what it calls "the extermination of wild anima a and poisonous snakes," so that 1,64,64i5re remain to be accounted for. In 1885 the total amount expended was 2,24,126ra.,, so that there was a considerable reducoion in 1886; but when the average annual expendi ture amounts to shout two lakhs of rupeeest becomes a serious question whether the whole sum might nou be economised. It may be remembered that 20,142 persons -ere killed by snake-bite, and 25,360rs were paid for killing snakes. But only 2.707 persons were killed by wild beasts, and 1,64 645re were spent in rewards for th extermination of wild beasts. But are they really exterminated ? , course :tigers are the greatest offenders, but how is it...
