Available from:

Smuggler's Devices (The Strand, 1891)
From banknotes hidden in pencils to tobacco baked in bread, smugglers have found dozens of devious ways to outwit customs officials!
The Last of the Smugglers: An Interview (CFM, 1895)
Reminiscences of an old Cornish smuggler, who blames the telegraph for killing "honest trade."
A Lady's Experience in the "Intermediate" (CFM, 1889)
On voyaging to Canada in "intermediate" class - and how to prepare for the experience.
Bills of Fare for Thanksgiving Dinner (Demorest, 1880)
From a dinner for twelve to a "plain sanitary dinner" ("one that almost any person could eat, that can eat a dinner at all, without the least disturbance of mind or body"), with a host of luscious recipes.
Remarkable Accidents (The Strand, 1895)
The case of the flying boiler; the water pot that started a fire; the ghostly gravedigger; the man who shot himself whilst sleeping; and other quirks of fate.
Model Menu for November (GOP, 1893)
What to offer for this month's dinner party.
Recipes for the Month (GOP, 1897)
Seasonal recipes include pigeon pie, vanilla ice cream, spice cakes, dressings for salads, and a jelly made of Icelandic moss.
Art Needlework (GOP, 1888)
Beautiful embroidery patterns that work just as well today as they did more than 100 years ago.
Animal Courtesies (CFM, 1893)
Some lovely anecdotes of the "true courtesies" shown by animals to one another, both within and between species.
Clocks of All Times (The Strand, 1893)
Pictorial feature of clocks throughout antiquity, including some rather odd contrivances!
November Lore (ILA, 1846)
Country lore, customs and feast days.
Fiction: The Discourager of Hesitancy (Century Magazine, 1885)
If you've ever read the classic story, "The Lady, or the Tiger?" you'll understand the host of letters the author received demanding to know the "answer." (If you haven't read it, I suggest hastening to do so - it's availbale online.) In response, the author wrote this frustrating followup!
Odds and Ends (GOP, 1896)
A fascinating round-up of news, notes and trivia from around the Victorian world.
At Harvest
The Turkey with the Toothache
A Thanksgiving Song
