On Sunday night there were occasional light showers, but on Monday forenoon the darkening clouds, the flashes of lightning, and claps of thunder betokened that any outdoor sport would be almost impossible. Al though rain was badly required it was a pity in one respect that the elements did not postpone their ' watering operations until Tuesday. Had the day been fine the picnic would have been an unqualified success, for a very large attendance was expected, whilst the arrangements made by the committee in the way oc sports, &...

Our Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

Our Melbourne Letter . (From Our Own. Correspondent.) ^ The patrons to tlie Princess Theatre have rarely seen such an astounding j spectacle as they were favored with last Thursday. Upon that night the ! ' ?warehousemen' of the city had ^en-.j gaged the amphitheatre, and thronged : it. Evidently they had appointed a decorative committee. Strange die- j vices were hung over the balcony, more or less expressive of the fact that trade and employment at pre sent in the soft-goods line are about I as dull as ditch water. A coffin was suspended in the clear, about half way down the left hand side of the dress circle, labelled on -u one side il Rises,' and on the other ' Bonuses,'' plainly showing ' that- these induce ments to honest emulation are very, very dead. Rude banners and streamers, which were shown, stated that salaries had been reduced, even amongst the better-paid men to £2 10s per week, and a ruder device was hung out above the Governor's box. Viewed from below, it appeared to...

For fifteen long years Hartleigh Hall had held its doors shut to friends and strangers alike ; lor fifteen long years a shadow had hovered over it, and the gloom of a dead 'past had filled it. Tho silence of a buried life had brooded there, and the people had learned to shun it. And now, of a sudden, the doors had been thrown open, and life and gaiety, beauty and fashion thronged its erstwhile cloomy chambers. lrveiy window gleamed joyously wiili the warm blaze, and soft, melting strains of music mingled with the hum of sweet voices and the rustle of silks aud satins ; and white shoulders gleamed, and bright eyes flashed with Cupid's artillery, and hearts were lost and won. And the lawns and drives were gay with many coloured lamps, and alive with liveried servants ; and tho pebbled driveway crunched under springing hoofs and grinding^wheel8.

Strychnine in Snake Bite. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

Strychnine in Snake Bite. The ' Autralasian Medical Gazette ' of the last month again contains . numerous reports of the successful treatment of snake-bite by strychnine injections. These are so much more valuable as most of the cases were | death adder bites, recovery from which by any other treatment is very j rare. ..They also prove, conclusively, that the poison of vipers is not a blood poison, as has been contended by the Indian authorities on the sub ject, but a nerve poison, like that of tlie ordinary colubrine order. The following case is reported from Tasmania in the ' Launceston Daily Telegraph,' of the 14th ultimo : — ' ' Mrs Fraser, who was bitten by a snake at St. Leonard's on Wednes day last, is now in a convalescent con dition owing to the skilful treatment of Dr Holmes, of Launceston, who ^ ^ . i-Acon.iYiG..thfi remfidy discovered and recommended by Dr. Mueller, of Yackandandah, Victoria, for curing snake-bite, and which has frequently been alluded to in these column...
