poetry. The Night Wind. " What does the night wind say to thee.'" I asked a maiden fair to see. " It whispers of sunny banks and braes, Waere my love and I pass happy days ; Liden with sweats hom the soented flowers, It wafts me a breath bom those blissful hours, When smiling love looked into my eyes, 'Neath the blue arch of the sommer skies. It murmura again his dear words so sweet, 1 Heaven is here as I He at thy feet, Its sunbeams glint in thy golden hair, Thy lips are its pei fumed flow'rets rare, Earth, with its careB, its vague alarms, Ia all forgot in thy tender arms, While birda and all things near rejoice, In the witching mueio of thy voice.' " " ind what to thee does the night wind eay?" I asked of a woman old and gray. " At the sound of its yoioe I shake with fears, For there oomea a thought of tho other years, When my lover brave left me and home, In foreign lands for gold to roam, Left me to mouin with anxious heart, That love from lova for gold maet part.

Hints to Housekeepers. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890

Hints to Housekeepers Spirits oí ammonia ÍH the best thing to clean hair-brushes with, as it docs not soften tbs bristles like soap or soda. If a teaspoon- ful of ammonia is mixed with s quart of water, the brush need only be dipped in the solution for a moment and ali grease is re- moved. The bru.h shcu'd then be rinsed in cold water, shaktn well und dried in the air. but not in the sun. The ordinary method of scraping or bum- ing off old paint ia hardly expeditious enough for general purposes, and ia also laborious. Soda and quick-lime arc far more thorough. The solution of half of each is thus made : DÍBSOIVO the soda in water, and then add the lime and apply with a brush to the old paint, which can thus be removed in a few minutes. A bad breath ie certainly repulsive, and very properly BO, not only because it is un- pleasant in itself, but because it can always be remedied with proper care. If it proceeds from decayed teeth a dentist should bc con- sulted ; if from a disordered ...

Frogs. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890

Frogs. Strange as it may seem, frogs bear another name when they are young, for they are then called tadpoles, and are as different in their appearance as in name, for tadpoles have no legs and the body tapers to a point, which forms a tail. When they grow older they have four legs, the hind legs being much longer than the fore legs, and four toes on the fore feet, live on the hind feet. When the frog is changing from one state to the other, the hind legs first begin to grow, then the fore legs appear, and the tail is lost. The tadpole lives in the water ; the frog, while loving to live near the water, visits it only occasionally, but makes his home on the shady, moist banks of ponds or streams. The males have on either side of their necks a membrane, which becomes inflated with air when they croak, and while the voice of the male is powerful, that of the female is comparatively weak. It is   amusing to hear, in the warm Summer nights, the different notes and sounds whi...
