CHEMICAL DISHORNING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

!CHEMICAL DISHORNINC. Dr II. H. Lamson, of the New Hamp shire Experiment Station, gives the fo1 lowing directions for this operation: Hlorns ,c-nsist of two parts, of diffe rent origin: the outer horny asill is a growth derived from Ihe skin; the inner part of pith! consists of bone and i~s in outgrowth of the skull. At birth, each of these parts only exists as a lpo-sibility, but they at once begin to grow, and in a short linec the young horn can Ibe felt as a slight ele vatiou. T'he horn tissue develops from the skill just as do hoofs and claws in the lower animals :and nails in human beings. There is a zone of the skin :bout the base of the horn known as the miatrix, from which new horn cells are constantly formled, the older parts Ieiug pushed on. If we destroy the tieriostoluni. from which the bony part of the" horn is forlied. anld the matrix, froml which the hornly part is formted, we prevent the development of the horn. In rtonloving horns already developed, as in i.'shornin...

Gaulin, of Paris. comprises three essential portions-a closing de vice, a tight joint, and a safety or seal ing device, for the prevention of fraud.

MORE ABOUT SNAI'ES. STOTRIE SAND SUPERSTITIIONS SNA.K.ES AND ORIIGINAL SIN. Dr. Stradling was the first to establish the theory of immunity by means of in oculation. He has been bitten three hundred and fifty times by various sna kes, having previously.prepared .and treated himself for the ordeal by careful. ly graduated inoculations of snlake venoin. His arms are scarred from shlvoulder to' wrist with snake 'bites-the w,,unds caused by fangs of varying size and kind standing out clear and defined after a lapse of riany years. For he no longer exposes his limbs to venomous attack-in the cause of science. 'When I gave up bachelordom and settled down to general practice." he explains. "I had to give up personal experiments in mnake bite. But the theory of compara tive immunity after venom inoculation was fairly.established by personal test. proof and demonstration on the. present corpus, twenty years and more before Calmette, Fraser, Giogli, and others claimed the credit attaching the...

THE HAVANESE. A SIEASONABLEl SKETCH OF AN INTERESTING( PEOIL'LE. The Havanese shops are plentifully supplied with European andl. native goods; but as in almost all tropical countries, very few of them have win dows. and the waries are exposed in the open, :as in an Eastern bazaar. Only a few years ago, the jewellers' and gold smiths' shops 'were renowned througllh uitr the Western world, but now. tin fortun:ltely. they are entirely runino. Even in ]878. when the shoe first beganin to pinch in Cuba. many line jewels, and cinte )eauntiful specimens of old Spain ish? silver.

The special representative of the "Northern Scot," describing a pilgrim age to the battlefield of Culloden, makes a good many allusions to a once well known Melbourne figure. W'e extract as follows: The morning of the eventful day dawned bright and clear, and old Sol looked down upon the mundane sphere lwith a sunny, smiling face, for well I weea he was pleased to see the husband men so busy putting in the seedlings so that his summer rays might not shine in vain. The sowers were happy, too., for I heard them whistle sprightly airs as I swiftly rolled over the roadway,and the skylark overhead twittered his peer. of praise for a bright and beautiful morning. I was not aware at what hour the celebration ceremony was fixed for, :und as I sped I ast -the Cumberland bulder, I thought I was to be the first pilgrim on the scene; but as I drew nearer I noticed through th,: trees fa...

OUT OF HIS RECKONING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

OUT OF HIS RECKONING. The following account of an interview with the Spanish Premier, by a ":Central -News" correspondent, en i5th May, shows that Senor Sagasta was a trifle over-sanguine regarding the situation at Santiago de Cuba: . I have this evening had a conversation with Senor Sagasta with reference to the position of affairs at Santiago de Cuba. The Premier declared that, as matters stood at present, a naval en counter in the water of Cuba was ex tremely improbable, and would probably be indefinitely postponed. All the cur rent rumors of fighting were unfounded. The squadron under Admirall Cervera was safe in the harbor of Santiago, and would remain there whilst the ships coaled and were cleaned and got into thorough trinm. This wou!d be carried on leisurely, in pursuance of a well-de fined plan agreed upon by the naval an thorities. - "There will be no fight at Santiago." continued Senor Sagasta. "unless Ad miral Cerera desires a conflict. The American squadron will find Sa...

CROSSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

CROSSOVER. Coming along in the Neerim train the other day I heard an innocent looking individual making inquiries about the large heaps of .tand at Cross over station. I could not make out what he meant, but suddenly it dawned on me that he must have mis taken the sugar beet refuse for the product of the sea shore. It is some what the same color seen from a distance, and if you keep it on hand too long it is likely to remind you of the Yarra banks ! Mr Gunn, sawmiller, has been giving the beet refuse a trial lately, and his bullocks have consumed about 50 tons of it to date. Mr Gunn is of opinion that the refuse mixed with chaff is good feed, but it does not do to be used by itself. The New Perseverance is working steadily on, and many. people hitherto rather inclined to be sceptical, not to say "scoffy," are rapidly altering their opinion, and are now thinking that a few shares would not be amiss after all. It will be a real good thing for this district if the claim turns out well,...

FARMING INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898

FARMING INTERESTS. Over the whole of the northern districts of the colony a remarkable and most gratifying improvement in regard to crop prospects has taken place, The effect of the splendid June rains has been to cause a rapid growth of all kinds of vegetation. Fields that were a month ago as bare and brown as a swept road, are now covered with a mantle of green. The cereal crops are coming on so rapidly that even farm ers are satisfied, and where the sowing was concluded in fairly good time there is to say the least of it, a strong probability of the returns being above the meanz average of the colony for the last 10 years. In many of the coast districts the rains have not been nearly so copious as north or the Dividing Range, and more moistuId would1 bevwelcome. Potato dig ging is now piacticallyj ,wuchluded i?t e late localities, and fairly good crops has?eI , been obtained in some places, but, gener ally speaking, the yields were light, From all the other colonies good reports ...
