Tnsomnia, the technical name for sleeplessness, one of tlie aiost distressing conditions to which tlie human system can be subjected, dragging along in its train, as natural sequences, a combina tion of equally painful symptoms, each of a destructive character, can only be eradicated by such remedies as operate as a gentle anodyne, soothing the nerves, calming the mind, and quieting tlie combative causes that produce it; of these Udolpho Wolfe's Schiedam Aro matic Schnapps stauds pre-eminent. — Adv.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 March 1879

The inhabitants of Wagga have now a gas project before tlieui, and it remains to be seen whether tlie town will main tuin its previous reputation as enter prising, or content itself with subsiding, as so many precocious children have done before, into dull inactivity. We would rather that the residents would look at the project in a inatter-of fact manner, than through the rose-coloured spectacles that ' a preliminary report ' frequently lends. Expenditure ofteuer exceeds the estimate than revenue in matters of this kind, while revenue, iu turn, often falls short of anticipation. An over-estimate of two or tliree thousand feet in the calculation of the producing pjwor of a ton of coal, makes a great deal of difference in the returns. But agaiust these objections which, at worst, are but trifling, there is arrayed a very battalion of advantages. The danger, inconvenience, and dirt attendant upon the use of kerosene, would be disposed of : there would be 110 more cleaning — i aud smas...

GOLDSBROUGH/S MONTHLY CIRCULAR. Melbocrxk, March 21, 1870. Wool.— At the date of our last month'* report the season was virtually over ; and since then the quantity offered lias been comparatively unimportant, the total catalogued at the sales held during the month being 3747 bales, of which 2890 bales have been sold. The lots offered have chiefly been in inferior to ordinary condition, aud consisting principally of small parcels, including a considerable proportion of cross-bred. There has been good competition ; but prices show :i decline, owing to the continued unfavourable to.leirvams from England. We quote: — Merino, £d to 1«I lower, and cross-bred, Id to 1^1, the latter reduction being in accordance with the fall in this class of wool at the London sales. The cablegrams irom England through out the month have been unsatisfactory, the February and March sales having opened and progressed at lower rates than were expected, considering the gener ullv irood class of wools offered,...

A FAIR EXILE'S FATE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

A FAIR EXILE'S FATE. A Boston correspondent of the Louis ville Courier- Journal says : — Tragedies and comedies far more striking than any that are put upon the boards of the stage are being enacted all around us every day, and if our eyes could but be opened to see them through their outer covering of cold conventionality, we should be in danger of falling out of the ranks of active life and assuming the role of mere lookers-on at the great drama. So it is fortunate for us, as well as for those who would faiu con ceal their bosom secrets of pain or of joy from tlie public gaze, that our eyes are mercifully scaled. Until very re cently there was an old, bent, and wrinkled woman to be seen any day 011 one of our principal thoroughfares ' down town,' curled up behind a meagre, dyspeptic little band-organ, patiently grinding out the most dismal and doleful sounds that ever this demo cratic instrument was made to yield, and looking wistfully at the little tin cup which was usually desti...

MARRYING FOR RANK. Marriages are made in heaven ; matches are arranged in Muyfair. Such are the two opposite phases of matrimony. That of celestial origin is brought about by the operation of tlie greatest of Christian virtues, charity. i.e., unselfish love. That, on the con trary, which is of the earth earthy is entirely a matter of weights and lueaBiueH — auu avoiiuupois equation. She has beauty, yet lacks endowment. He has congenitally the fatal gift of ugliness, but his acres are brand, and his balance at the banker's never falls below four figures. Or, again, she corporeally might be lovelier. Indeed, her Strephon might veritably sing of her : — ' She was not fair to outward view. As many maidens be ; Her loveliness I never knew Until she smiled ou me.' Especially as her smile was accompanied by substantial consideration, He, poor fellow, was attractive and debonnaii'e, yet his resources were ignobly below liis currant rate of expenditure.
