ARE YOU FOND OF COOKING? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
ARE YOU FOND.OF COOKING? The housekeeper should bestow great care, in the first place, upon the taste and appear- ance of the prime materials of the dish before she expands any thought, material, nr labour upon croutons, crayfish, truffles, and all the useless so-called ornaments and trappings of an uneatable kind with whioh dishes are now so frequently overloaded. Garnishes have, however, many uses-that of increasing the nutritive value, or bulk, or suffioienoy for servioe of a dish whioh of itself would be insufficient ; thus, a chicken might not be sufficient for a oarver to serve six plates, but when stuffed and moderately garnished it would be quite enough. The advioe to use few, if any, external additions, with a well-cooked dish, and to never apply a garnish to merely impress the eye, is well worth considering.

Braid wears out stocking and shoes by the constant friotion. Velveteen on the bias may be bought, in all oolours, of most drapers.

THE TRUE WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
THE TRUE WOMAN. The woman who holds a man's heart in her hands Heod not be pretty nor possessed of rich lands. , She needn't wear olothes just teeming with . style ; She needn't possess the first worldly wile. Her eyes may be brown, her eyes may be . blue, To him she's a beauty away through and . 'through If she's true. It's her soul that ho oares for> her steadfast devotion- j Her love is unbounded, aa free an the ocean ; The touch of her hands, the glance of her eye, The swift rush of colour that comes when he's nigh ; ? The thousand and one little things she can do, Ttat show him so plainly right through and through ' That she's true. What does it matter if others are fairer P -She possesses a virtue that makes her far rarer ' t Than professional beauties, cold hearted and vain.

HOW FASHIONS ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
HOW FASHIONS ABE MA.DE. There are many people who aro interested in the kaleidoscopic changes of fashion whioh take place almoat weekly in dress, manners, etiquette, and bo forth, but few people know who first sets or inaugurates a new fashion. The subject is a peculiarly fascinating one. Although it ia generally supposed Royalty and well-known society people are often responsible for new modes, by for the larger number are the result of aocidents, or ideas suggested by something altogether ulterior. 4 The Pbinoess's Handshake.* Some of these incidents have been very peoub'ar, not to say interesting. For in stanoe, (he present mode of shakings hands in mid« air arose from an episode in whioh H..B.H. tho Princea8 of Wales played the loading part. Somo timo ago she was bid- ding adieu to a friend, well known as a sooieiy leader, on the steps of Sandringham House. While this lady was holding the Prinoess's hand she slipped down a step, and so'the final motion of the greeting was necess...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
NOTES. Soup should bo omitted at dinner by those who Buffer from any kind of ache, for it ia- &lt; apt rather to congest the faoe and soinorease the trouble. All fermented boveragos must, of course, be left striotly alono. Overwork, especially brain work, and too little sleep are very often answerable for these eruptions on the skin ; it ia for thia reason that early hours are so strongly .nsisted upon for those who wish to hAvefs. thoroughly hoalthy skin. \ t ~
RINGING THE CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
" RINGING THE CHANGES. SJOne often hears of swindlers who obtain money by 'ringing the changes,' but exaotly how it is done is not known to every one. A barmaid, at Newcastle, who was victim- ised in this way, describes what took place, as follows :-'On Thursday afternoon, at a quarter to five, the prisoner oame up to her counter, and asked for a 2d. cigar. He ten- dered her Is., and she gave him the oigar and lud. change. He now picked up the chango, and then said, ' By the by, miss, you might give me that shilling back, as I have §ot Bome coppera.' She gave him baok tho lilliug, but to her surprise he handed her 2d. (Witness said, ' Here, you have done me out of 10.' The man replied, ' No, no, miss ; just give me 2s. piece for two shillings, will you, and then we will get on.* She did bo, but again reminded him that he had still got her lOd. . Have I ?' he said, ' here, put that 2s. piece on the ocunter again, we are getting mixed.' Witnesss put the florin on the counter, and the ...
SKETCHER. A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
. * nfc M ?-,1 A NARKO W E30APE. A Gordon Highlander writes home an account of his narrow escape from death : He writes :-I had orders to go up into a house to look for grain, and had been there for about half an hour, when I heard shout-. ing. Looking ont of the house, I found I was surrounded by the enemy. I askod the Lord to deliver me ; thou I made for down- stairs, until I got to the yard. I saw one of the enemy just iu front of me. I fired and knocked him down, and then turned and ran as fast as I could, and suoh a volley came after me, and never a scratch. I had to turn and fire twice. 1 then saw the rest of our party, and made for them aa fast as I could run, until I could run no further, and hud to walk. But they wero not to get me af^er all, for Lieutenant Wingate rushed out with his pistol, and shot three oí them down and pulled me out of danger. I got down behind a bank exhausted, and stopped there till I got my breath. I and Lieutenant Wingate got cut off from the other...
CARE OF CHILDREN'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
CARE OF CHILDREN'S EYES. , ¡Weak and sore eyes aro not infrequent j with young ohildren, and it will be found a j good plan to pour some tea, whioh is ali but oold, into a saucer (kept for this purpose), and use this to bathe the eyes. If both eyea are bad, one should be finished and dabbed dry before the other is touched ; and for the sooond one another rag should be used, the tea thrown away, and a fresh supply taken. The rag should be thrown on the fire direotly it is done with. AU old white . handkerchiefs ought to ba kopt, and nut where the hand can bo readily plaoed idpon them in case of emergencies, as they are fine and soft. Sponges are not nice to use again and again for bad eyes or sores of any description.
SCIENCE. TO PREVENT CHAPPED HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
' ; 'Senos. TO PREVENT CHAPPED HANDS. Insufficient drying is the oause of most ohapped hands. It .io an excellent idea to keep on one's dressing-table a box of almond meal with a perforated oover. When the hands are dried with the towel, a little almond meal dusted over them will oomplete the work of absorbing tho moisture, and tho hands will not ohap.
COLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
COLDS. '" Carelessness in winter with regard to wrapping up properly most frequently results in coughs and oolds, and these, even if they do not prove very bad at the time, I nearly always leave the BufForer therefrom in a more or less weakened condition. Espec- ially is this thocaBe as the Spring approaches, for it is in this pleasant Beason of the year that any weakness which may bo hovering about the system will make itself felt, some- times in one way and sometimes in another, very often in the form of spots and pimples upon the face, and in the falling off of the bair ; so if nothing else will make my young friends careful-and it is usually the young who aro moB* careless in the matter of wraps-perhaps this consideration will ; for what is suoh a drawback to good looks as a spotty face P The first essential, therefore, is to guard against cold, and this can be done, not by having heavy garments, but by always wearing flannel next the skin, also by having tolerably thick soles t...
DANGERS OF POULTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
DANGERS OF POULTICES. A medical man calla our attention to the abuse of poultioes, and says he has seen many oases where the application of a poultice has done irreparable damage. He has known several instances where poultioes were applied to abrasions, contusions, sprains, simple and compound fractures, until the skin and underlying tiasuos were water soaked. The ordinary poultice has no longer a place among the reaouroes of the asoeptio surgeon or the practitioner who has any knowledge of bacteriology. The poultice ia a hot-bod for baotoria, and, suoh being the case, should not be nsed, especially when *he circulation or tissu en have been destroyed, as in an injury of any kind. As a general rule uninjured epidermis is impervious to organ- isms, but when wa poften it, as with a poultice, we open the sweat duots and give the micro-organisms easy access to the tissued* beneath.
HIGHER EDUCATION FOR GERMAN GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
HIGHER EDUCATION FOR GERMAN GIRLS. The Woman's Rights Movement has scored a sucoess "in the Kaiserland, and a notable one. , On April 1st the first gymnasium (Govern- ment High Sohool), wa j opened, not in the oapital of the empire, it is true, but at Breslau, whioh ranks next to it in impor- tance. , As the need for such institutions is very g'enerally felt, Breslau's example will soon be followed far and wide. The first girl«' gymnasium is being established, not by the State, but by the city, but in such matters nothing oan be done without the as- sent of the State, and having been sanctioned by the Minister of Eduoation, the movement has been well started. Another question is now advanoed a step nearer solution-that of the entrance of women students to the German Universities. Up to the present time this has been im- possible for two reasons-from lack of the prescribed preparation at a gymnasium, and I on aooonnt of the refusal of the majority of university professors to admit wo...
TRAVELLER. PREHISTORIC SUFFOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 14 May 1898
XBATOHIBL -? PREHISTORIC SUFFOLK. A relio of olden days has been found in a field in .the parish of St. Miohael's, South Elmham, in the form of a pierced stone hammer. The weapon, or tool, of whioh this was the head, would be a formidable i implement in the hands of a strong, active warrior. It measured 5f in long by nearly 4£in wide, and is lfin thick, while the weight of this is 37¿oe. It is a piece of very hard quartzite stone, similar to many which occur plentifully in the road material of Suf- folk, but whioh the road-menders find so stubborn to deal with that instead of run- ning the risk of breaking their hammer in attempting to oraok them they usually throw them into the deop ruts or into the hedge bottom. The broad end of this ancient 'celt' is considerably abraded with nee.

A CONSUL'S ADVENTURE. Mr. J. V. Faber, Danish Consul for New- castle, England, had an exciting experience on Saturday night, Maroh 6, haying travelled on the footboard of the express train from Xiondon to Peterborough. Ho described his adventure as follows : * I was anxious to oatoh the 6.45 train from King's Cross to Newcastle, so hurried up and managed just to get into the Newcastle compartment -with all my luggage as the train moved off the the platform. When wo got to Finsbury Park I took my top coat off and jumped out, telling the guard that I was g°ing up to the dining car. He shouted to me to hurry up as the train was lonsr, and we only stopped a few seconds. As I walked rapidly along the platform I saw the train begin to move. I then ran on, and when I got level with the kitohen'oar Bomehow or other I lost my bearings, because I passod the entranoe at the baok of the dining oar, ran forward, and jumped on to the top at the door leading to the platform in front of the dining ...
