CSesicral Gordon. (By B: ciiai'le'3, in the Goulburn Herald.)'

Bismarck's Mode of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 21 February 1885
Bismarck's Modcof LiSfci : Prince- Bismarck,' according' tier the' Tm'es' correspondent,- leads a very methodical life,' ^ and in the' country, as in- the town,-no event ' is; allowed to interfere with; its- regularity. ; His grand dinners are abundant, with math ematical sufficiency, without stint or' waste. His daily meals' are those of a good family , burgher. And the servants are methodical, : attentive,- and silent. None of his house hold ever commits the mistake,' at table,- of speaking before th'e master of the house has, so1 to speak, tacitly given them leave. AH wait to see if the Prince is in- a conversa tional mood, and when he is pleased to speak ; all- are hushed, nob to lose one of his words.

One of the Prince's charac teristics is his love for some large dog, ;which he makes hi...

Preserved Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 21 February 1885
Preserved Eggs. Mr. W. B. Tegetmeier writes in the FieU •with regard to the display of preserved p£f'n's at the recent Dairy Show, as fol lows ;—■ The practical inferences to be deduced from this very interesting and useful com petition may be soon stated. The test must be regarded as one of a most severe charac ter.- A very considerable proportion of the ejur^:i must have been laid in June, and, &a they were n°t examined by me until about the middle of October, they were nearly four months old. Any process which will en able eggs to be kept for winter use for so long a time njust be regarded as valuable. The three most successful plans are those of packing in salt, which is almost without expense or trouble, as the salt, after drying, may be used over and over againoiling or buttering the shell as soon as the eggs are laid ; and placing them'iii lime water, made by pdvring some cold water on a quantity of quick-lime (this also is practically without cost)!
