The Geeat Alpine Remedy. — No sensible medical man questions the propriety of giving a stimulant in cases where the stomach is torpid, the nerves relaxed, the circulation languid, or there is general deficiency of vital power in the system. The grand object under such circumstances is to select a remedy which will not only impart activity to the sluggish animal functions, but per manent tone, vigour, and regularity to the organs which perform tliem. The celebrated Swiss cordial, known as the 'Dew of the Alps,' lias,- for nearly five hundred years, fulfilled this object in the mountain region from which it derives its name ; and we are glad to see that through the instrumentality of Messrs. M. Moss and Co. it ha-s been placed in this market. In no part of the world is such a preparation more required. Although medicinal in its effects, it iB in flavour onie of the most delicate of aromatic liqueurs. — Adv.

IMPORTED AGRICULTURAL WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

IMPORTED AGRICULTURAL WEALTH. California has gained vastly by agri cultural contributions from other States. The early miners wrote home that the country was good for nothing for agriculture. A few years later the production of her cultivated fields ex ceeded in value the entire gold aud silver product of the State. This year the agricultural products of California are worth at least ninety million dol lars, or as much as the entire product of gold and silver in all the country. The agricultur.il wealth has been greatly augmented by tlie importation of live stock, seeds, plants, shrubs, and so on. Some of tlie best seedwheat lias beeu brought from Chile. The alfalfa, now so famous, is only the lucerne of England acclimatized in Chile, and from thence was transferred to Cali fornia. In England it had the advan tages of a very humid climate ; in Chile the disadvantages of a very dry one. But when it had been made to I thrive there it was just the grass for the dry climate of Californi...

TABLE FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

TABLE FOWLS. There is considerable difference in the merits of the different breeds of fowls for the table, although taste has much to do in determining which are the best; and, while breed has something to do with it, the age has a great claim, for some are better at certain ages than at Ouiers. J- lie yuung limuaune ami oiuw growing Brahma, for instance, is not desirable until it has nearly gained its growth, aud even then it is far belter when a year old when fattened up quickly. And, in fact, a year-old bird of any breed we prefer to chicken, no matter how it is cooked, though many have a weakness for broilers in the shape of young chicks. Young Leg horns, which feather up more quickly that do the A slates, and mature more ranidlv. make the best broilers, and many a nice one we have helped to dissect after it had come from the hands of a skilful cook. Although but few persons seem to know it, much of the table merits of a fowl or chick depends upon the way it is fattened, and 01...

THE NORTHERN LIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

THE NORTHERN LIGHTS. Some of us have seen, even in these latitudes, on certain rare occasions beautiful arches of light stretching across the heavens, rapidly changing in form j and colour, with now and again 'bright rays flashing out perpendicularly from them. To observe these phenonema, 1 however, in all their beauty, we must pav a visit to higher latitudes, where they are seen much more frequently, and in far greater splendour. These appearances are most generally known as the Northern Lights, the Merry Dancers, or the Aurora Borealis, owing to the fact -that the high northern latitudes have been much more visited than the southern. Tiie same pheno mena, however, are to be seen as we go snnt.bw.irds. Mil '1 so iliev are sometimes spoken of under the name of the Aurora Australis. Perhaps the most appropriate title that has been applied to them is that of Aurora Polaris. Let us imagine ourselves for a brief season to be upon the deck of a vessel fav away in the north — let us say i...

AUTOGRAPHIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

AUTOGRAPHIC TELEGRAPH. Autookajtuc telegraphy, or the process of transmitting messages iu the actual handwriting of the sender (says the Times), has occasionally during the past 30 years constituted the special study of scientific uiiuds. So long siuceas 1850 Mr. F. C. Bakewell invented a copy ing telegraph by means of which auwgrapu utiugrapu was euecieu, ana this was probably the first time it was effectually accomplished. In this in stance the message was written by the sender with a gummy ink or varnish on metallic paper or tin foil, and this writing was by the aid of mechanism used to actuate electric currents iu such a way as to produce a record at the distant station by the chemical decom position of a solution with which the receiving paper was damped. Both the written message and the paper were fixed round cylinders of similar form and dimensions, one being placed iu the transmitting and the other iu the record ing instrument, and the cylinders were caused to revolve with c...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

Queensland. Favienc aud party, the Qucenslander explorers, left Port Darwin by the -steamer Ocean on Saturday. The leader £he expedition reporte that he has been completely successful in the objects ifeS! of the expedition. The proposed rail way, the route of which was surveyed, is easy of construction, and there is available pastoral country all the way. Port Darwin is a fine harbour, and the site for a city is unequalled. The Courier of Wednesday publishes a leader containing grave charges against the management of the London Missionary Socicty work in New Guinea. It states that the late mur ders of native teachers are properly chargable to the white missionaries, who placed the native teachers in a position of danger which they dared not themselves encounter. A message to the Commissioner of Police from Blackall reports that Sub inspectors Gougli and Kaye are believed to have perished in the bush from thirst. Sub.inspector Cheekes has gone in search.

A VOLUNTARY OLD MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

A VOLUNTARY OLD MAID. There is 110 sweeter and more interest ing character, whether in fiction or real life, than the spinster who has, for some good reason, refused a lover's proposal, and, being now past the flower of her youth, cheerfully accepts the part of an old inaid. The ordeal through which she has passed seems to have refined her feelings, and of itself insensibly draws to her the regards of all who know her bisto 'v. Such an one is eminently loveable and sym pathetic, forward in all good work, the warm friend of married men and women, the confidante of many a tender passion. Age does but mellow the beauty of her disposition. She never slanders, never retails ill-natured gossip; nor, 011 the other hand, though prompt to put in a seasonable word on a crisis, does she deem it her mission to set all the people round her right. She makes an admirable aunt, and is very necessary to the comfort of a large circle of cousins. Many a young fellow 011 the threshold of life bears a k...

LADIES' BOOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

LADIES' BOOTS. Among the multiplicity of articles in the British Museum are some well pre served examples of Egyptian sandals, made of palm leaves. I11 one of these, slices of palm leaves over-lapping each other form the sole ; these being bound securely together by a double band of twisted leaves round tlie edge. As a pad to the feet these sandals must have been exceedingly pleasant aud grateful in a hot climate. Ladies of rank in Egypt paid then, as now, great attention to the beauty of their sandals. In Western Asia, slippers left at the door of an apartment signify that the master or mistress, whoever may be therein, Is engaged, and no one thinks of intruding, not even a husband, though the apartment be his wife's. A writer, speaking of the termagants of Benares, says: — 'If domestic or other business calls off one of the combatants before the affair is settled, she coolly thrusts her shoe beneath her basket, and leaves both upon the spot, to signify that she is not satisfied.' ...

HINTS FOR VENTILATING ROOMS. Few people iu these days of enlighten ment aud higher education, with social science congresses and sanitary insti tutes, can remain in ignorance of the ?cause of this necessity — namely, that with each breath wo draw, a certain , amount of oxygen gas, which is j absolutely necessary to our existence, is consumed, and at the same time impure air, loaded with carbonic gas, which will in tin \viar- siirknnrf-. lifA* wliotlior of mn.n I ? ? ? ...W ? ? ~ ? or animal, is given out.

ELECTRICITY IN THE KITCHEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 29 March 1879

ELECTRICITY IN THE KITCHEN. It is not so much that there is nothing new under the sun which gives a vener able seal to the old proverb as the fact that we do not sufficiently regard what is venerable, and are often tardy in appreciating the days that have passed. Every week some so-called new inven tion comes to the front, over which the public, like Dominie aampsou, cries, ' Prodigious !' and yet that gentle public, if it would only take the trouble to inquire, would discover that as able, or even abler, men lived unknown before the present age. because, as in Hoiatiau tongue, they lacked their praises hymned by lofty bards to make all time their own ; and we are induced to make these somewhat grandiloquent remarks in consonance with the noble ideas enunciated and published by tlie dispersers of fogs and dispensers of the electric light. For, however grateful the chuckling gourmet may feel, as he wends homeward from a jolly little dinner in those delicious Temple chambers, to Mr. E...
