Trepical Quesnaland. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 9 January 1875

Tropical Quesnsland. I Toe experience gained by the pioneers of inter-tropical Queensland goes to ttfute die assumption that the northern portions^pf this continent ace unsuited to die JEuropean constitution. Years ago, SExUnmntna, which lies lust JT ? within the tropical Due, was regarded as the mltima Thde of settlement; and CRn now it is often pronounced by casual visitors 'to be too hot for anyone but a blackfe&ow to lire in.' Vet people who have resided here since 1857 may- be stffl found in the enjoyment of esceBeat health, and on occasionally returning to their old hahiraK: in the southern cnlrmir*;, compare sot unfavourably, in point of physical health, with the friends and acquaintances they left behind them. It is perfectly true that in former years die mortality in this district was v*ir great, bat the cause was not the Hinwf Privation, exposure, wtat of proper food and clothing, small, unwholesome, and badly ventilated dwelling, and, too often, intemperate habits...

A Benevolent Doctor. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 9 January 1875

A Benevolent Doctor. There dwells at Conndlsville, Fayette County. Pennsylvania — such at least is the address he gives — a most benevolent man, whose name ought to be better known all over the world. His goodness is almost overpowering. It is true that j it alvrays takes a particular form : but | Fate seems to-be so kind to him that he j has always exactly the very- thing he wants upon which to expend his charity. The victims of his kindness bear a like ness to each other, which is so striking that it is cjuite impossible to believe that it is mere chance which brings them in his way. The benevolent American in question is by name William Paiker, by profession he is a doctor. The marvel is that his services are being constantly required for a young Englishman who has come to ConneUsville, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, sick and desti tute. Another remarkable circumstance is that Dr. Parker's prescience enables him to see at a glance that his patient's case is hopeless. The doctor si...

Death from Snake-bite. INFORMATION was received yesterday morning, from Mr. J. C.

It appears that the unfortunate man had been working on the Island for a Sydney company, who are engaged in getting stone for the completion of St Mary's Cathedral, and, determining to visit Sydney, he crossed over to Toorilla with one of his mates, named John Leonard, and was on his way to Rockhamp- ton when the accident occurred. Leonard went back to the station for assistance, and Mr. Collins, with his brother, returned to the wounded man, and treated him with ammonia, but in consequence of not having a syringe to direct an injection into the wound, circulation could not be effected. He was then put on horseback, and conveyed ...
