A Banking System for the People. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
A Banking System for the People. The' forum ' for September contains an instructive account of ' Scotch Banks ; Their Branches and their Cash Credits,' by Mr A. S. Michie, president of the Royal Bank of Scotland : — In no other country in the world (he says) are banking ? facilities so extensive, as they are in Scotland.' While in England there is a bank, or branch bank, to about every ten thousand of population, in Scotland there is. one to about every four thousand. . . . The banks . . . accept on interest deposits ot.sums as small as five pounds, and allow current accounts to be opened sometimes with trifling balan 't ces.. .. . . The depositors in Scotch banks who have not more than one hundred pounds to their credit, on deposit re ceipt or on current account, comprise about three-fourths of the whole number. The re sult is that the aggregate bank ing deposits of a comparatively poor country, with few sources of natural wealth, and with a pbpulation of little more than four mill...
Fifty Billions of Miles. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Fifty Billions of Miles. The parallax of what arc termed the fixed stars has long been an experimental determi nation in astronomy peculiarly delicate, A measurement which has any two points on the earth's surface for the base is of no service in ascertaining the distance of any celestial body outside the solar srstcm ; but tbe points of observation have an immense distance of line when the earth'B orbit is made use of, with an interval of six months' movement. A parallactic determi nation of this nature has just been mado of the star 61 in the constellation of tbe .Swan, by the Rev. Dr. Pritclmrd, of Oxford. By a Bkillful a-ljustment of apparatus the obser vations were' taken by means of photography, and the reBult is fotriid to be that the star in question varies its distance from four others to tbe extent of four-tenths of a second of arc. From this the calculation is made that the star is 50,000,000,000 of miles remote from us. And yet it appears one of our nearest neighbors. Fi...
Woman or Lady? [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Woman or Lady? The English Courts have just ruled that it is no libel to call a lady a woman. Tbat is tho deliberately re corded opinion of a fin de tieole judge and jury before whom a caB.e involving this novel point was recently tried. How it would have gone, however, had the question been presented conversely, is left unexplained. Tbe ruling is that although a woman may claim to be ' a lady,' all the requirements of law and equity are satisfied by putting her down as a woman. But suppose one who claimed to be a woman was . re ferred to as a lady P There are women towards who n that would be a distinct impertinence. Any female may be a lady, just as you could mint a sovereign out of any sort of metal, but as gold iB gold so woman is womon, and cannot be qualified without being lowered. Mr Labouchere, of London ' Truth,' says that while, iu America he beard the women of the Bible referred to by clergymen as 'ladies.% He does not mention that ' the woman of Samaria' was called the l...
Vegetable Pearls. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Vegetable JP earls. It has long been known that in some speci mens of bamboo a round stone is found at the joints of the oane, This called ' taba sheer,' and iB supposed to be deposited from the silicious juices of the cane. Another curiosity of the sort iB the ' cocoahutstone,' found in the endersnerm of the cocoanut in Java and other East Indian Islands. It is, according to Dr. ICimmins, a pure carbonate of lime, and the Bbnpe of tbe stone is some times rounds sometimes pear-shaped, while the appearance is that of a white pearl with out much lustre. Some of the stones are as large hb cherries, and as hard as felspar or opal. They are very rarely found, and are regarded as precious stones by Orientals, and charms against disease or evil spirits by the natives. Stones of the kind are also found in the pumegiaiiate and other East Indian fruits. Apatite has also been discovered in the midst of teak wenl.
Didn't Know his own Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Didn't Know his own i Wife. - ?? ' ? i . Many instances nre on record of men who through illness or accident have 'completely lost their .'identity. A young workman newly-married, was knocked down by a runaway team and wounded in the bead. He wna con veyed to a hospital^ and when ho re covered his past life was a blank to' him. He' could' not remember his name. He, drifted about, living upon charity, until able to work, when lie secured employment and by industry nnd economy acquired a snug littlo Bum of money. One day his wife met him and threw herself into his arms. He did not remember her, but seemed delighted to meet ono who knew and could tell him of his past life, went homo' with her, but did not realise tho relationship existing between them, and.aslted if she wns not his sister. He was perfectly sane, but could not recall a single instance in his life prior to the time when he was run down in the street. He accepted his wife, re sumed his name, nnd they are very happy togeth...

Revenue Returns. A SUEPLUS OF £16,000 ON THE YEAR. THE PREMIER'S NEW TEAR'S GIFT. - Sir George Dibbs was seen by a representative of the T he Daily Tele graph en Saturday night, when he made®i±he following statement: — 'The revenue returns for 1893. were com pleted at the Treasury this evening with the result that the anticipated, deficit foreshadowed when the .Budget speech was made on Uctober 19 or £?201,239 4s 6d has been wiped out, and in lieu thereof an actual surplus of about £16,000 has been obtained. This sum may possibly be increased to a small extent when the vouchers are received at the Treasury for money paid into the Government account in various parts of the colony during the day.' ' When the Budget speech was made,' continued Sir George, ' I stated that the income for the year 1893, actual and estimated, would be £9,521,992, or a decrease on. the revenue for the previous year of £986,000. ? Now, the actual revenue received., up to date is £9,738,525 19s 3d, or £216,53...
Marvel of Photography. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Marvel of Photography. It is a curious fact, perhaps not known to tho general reader, that the exposure of a photographic plate makes no appreciable change inits appearance. It is a creamy white, semi-transparent piece of glass when it goes int£ tho-eamera. It presents precisely the same appearance after the sun has stamped the picture upon it. I Ihe most powerful mieroHcone would not detect anv chance. Tbe most expert photographer in the world would be unable to decide whether or no a plate has been exposed. Yet the picture is there.' It only requires 'development' to bring it out. And that !b what this ' dark room ' ia for. The least ray of natural light would Bpoil the plate. But light Btrained through ruby or yellow colored screens' of translucent paper or glass iB deprived of those rays which are so essen tial and at the same time so fatal to photo graphic success. The operator places his plate in one of the ' developing pans,' pours over it a certain combination of chemicals, ...
Debts of Honor in China. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Debts of Honor in China. The Department of State nt Wash ington bivs issued a series of reports fr.im American consuls abroad on debts of honor, or debts tho payment of which cannot be legally enforced Tn most countries : the samo gqneral principles of law prevail, as are ap plicable to this country.:, Tho chief ex ception is China, whero thero is a system which, the consul at Amoy says,- though at- utter variance with the siystems of other countries, posse'ssos great wisdom and practical . morit. All Chinese law is customary, and .'all litigation is regardod as an evil. There are nolawyersj no costs, no fees. A magistrate hears and settles a case very much as a father determines a dis pute between two of his children, or as' an arbitrator botween. two friendly merchauts. Litigation being an evil, public policy has increased largely the number of obligations which havo no binding nature except the honor of the debtor. Amongst these are moneys advanced by friends or relatives to star...

Dungog Races. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 January 1894
Dungog Races. Tho Annual Race Moi-ting hold under tho auspices of tho Dungog Jocltoy Club, took place on Cameron's course on Monday and Tuesday last. On . tho fust day tho wouthor was fine, hnt tho attendance was not so largo as might liftvo been expected, but tbis was doubtlesj owing to counter attrac tions in the shape of a cricket match and steamer excurfion to Notvcastle. The racing throughout was fairly good, although soma of tho finishus wore rather tame, and it tvns evident that Mr Ouinton held too high an opinion of Mr Lilly man's pair, and Amber Queen. The big money on tho second day, was the cause of some excite ment. It was looked upon as a ' good thing ' for Alethe or Lyoness, and it appearod as if tho latter was to win, but thoy reckoned without their host, for Caugon made the pace too fast for them from the start, and was lan ded a winner by a length, much to tho disgust of many local puntora.
