Shifts and Contribances AVAILABLE IN WILD COUNTRIES. BIVO UAC.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

&hittis ann Cfmtrtbancfsi AVAILABLE IN WILD COUNTRIES. BY FRANCIS GALTON, F.B..G.S. BIVO UAC.-Continued. Burying oneself in sand, snow, (kc. - À European can live through a bitter hight, on a perfectly dry sandy plain, without any clothes besides what he has on, if he buries his body pretty deeply in the sand, keeping only his head above ground. It is a usual habit of the naked natives in Australia to do so, and not an unfrequent one of the Hotten- tots of South Africa, Mr. Moffat records with grateful surprise how he passed anight, of which he had gloomy forebodings, in real comfort, even luxury, by adopting this method. In snow, it appears that - people may do even more : they may bury them- selves entirely, and want neither air nor warmth. I have never tried it ; but the instances are numerous of people falling into snow-drifts, and not being extricated for many days, and when at length they were taken out, they never seem to have complained of cold, or any other sufferin...

FOOD ADULTERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

FOOD ADULTERATION. . AN Act of Parliament has been passed enact- ing that any tradesman convicted of selling, knowingly, adulterated articles shall pay a penalty not exceeding fifty pounds for the first offence, and for the second offence shall be imprisoned. The "Act also provides that each parish shall be provided with an analyst, who shall he employed to detect these adulterations. It would be impossible for us, in our limited space, to convey a ready and popular method of detecting adulterations in most kinds of food ; but, where possible, we intend to give some easily applied tests. When the testing is too intricate, or requires special knowledge, the articles can be taken to the vestry-hall, and, by a payment not exceeding half a ' guinea, will be fully reported on. In the majority of cases it is absolutely necessary to have and to use a microscope. If we begin with the breakfast-table, taking first the beverages with which we quench our thirst, we shall find coffee stand- ing...

Types of Colonial Life. THE COLONIAL EXPERIENCE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

Types of Colonial Life. THE COLONIAL EXPERIENCE MAN.   BY GEORGE E. LOYAU.   THE Colonial Experience man is a well- known character throughout Australia. You meet him wherever cattle or sheep are lo- cated, and, although invariably considered, by old hands, as a nuisance, or encroacher on their rights, they invariably bear with his peculiarities for the fun he affords them. He has generally sprung from good stock in the Home Country—father, or uncle, maybe, was "first cousin to Lord Blunder, and the     best whip in the country," consequently, after such an admission on his part, it will be known he has good blood in his pedigree, and is a step above commoners—quite op- posite, indeed, to some he is daily thrown in contact with. For iustance, Jack Bowers, the cook, whose father was a "pickpocket," his   mother nobody knows who, and he an "or-   phant at seven years of age." Of course, the colonial experien...

EXAMPLES III. AND IV.—THE VINDICTIVE CREDITOR—THE TIMOROUS DEBTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

EXAMPLES III. AND IV.-THE VINDICTIVE CREDITOR-THE TIMOROUS DEBTOR. Skrunch has an ogre-like appetite for bodies. Shylock would have been contented with a pound of flesh ; but Skrunch hungers for bodies. * I verily believe he prefers bodies to cash. Skrunch (to his timid debtor)-" Come, Mr. Peek, are you going to pay that eight pounds seven ? " Peek (humbly)-"I am very sorry, Sir Skrunch (sharply)-"Your sorrow won't pay me." Peek (plaintively)-" I have been out of work thèse ten weeks, and my wife is very Skrunch-" What have I to do with your wife?" Peek (submissively)-"Nothing, Sir." Skrunch (morally dodging him)-" What is your wife to me I ask ? " Peek (confused)-" An anatomy, Sir." Skrunch-"An anatomy?" Peek-" Did I say anatomy Sir ? Excuse me, Mr. Skrunch, I meant to say an atom an insignificant atom. " Skrunch (pinning him)-"You did say anatomy." Peek-"Very likely I did, Sir-very likely. After all she is an anatomy-nothing but skin and bones, Sir ; she's been a long time ill." S...

BY ONE OP THEM. I know a tine old specimen of the vindic- tive school of creditors-a Mr. Skrunch. (Skrunch is not his real name, which I am afraid to give, as he is quite capable of buying up my tailor's or butcher's bills for the pleasure of suing me should I displease him. I take the' opportunity in this paren- thesis of saying that, in the fear of libel, none of the names in this veracious chronicle are real.)

EXAMPLE V.—THE DASHING DEBTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

EXAMPLE V.-THE DASHING DEBTOR. Mr. Skrunch. once had to do with quite a different customer-a debtor of the Don Cosar de Bazan stamp-a Mr. Osbaldiston de Courcy Slack (descended from the ancient family of the Slaque, of Toulouse). Skrunch had obtained judgment against him in the Local Court, but the bailiffs found nothing available for seizure. Skrunch encountered him in the street thus-"What's the mean- ing of this, Mr. Slack? The bailiff has endorsed the execution warrant against you nulla bona." Slack (languidly caressing his florid whiskers)-" Ton word, don't know. Not up in classics, Skrunch ; but suppose it's Greek for ' nothing to bone.' " Skrunch (savagely)-"What's become of your piano?" Slack-" Piano ! Oh, I ate that. " Skrunch-"Ate it?" Slack-"Yes, my dear fellah. I've had nothing to live upon but that piano ever since your commenced those beastly proceed- ings-you know. " Skrunch-"And your gold watch, have you ate that too ?" Slack-"No; I drank that at the races. I spouted...

S K E T C HES I N T A H I T I. THE PROMENADE OP SWELLS. NATIVES FISHING OFF MATAUTU. THE ISLAND OE TAHITI. The island of Tahiti, to which our illus- trations refer, is divided by nature into two parts-the main island, and a pear-shaped penisuala, connected with the former by an isthmus about two miles wide. The in- habited parts are on the seashore, or extend a short distance into the valleys, which all radiate from the centre of the island. The leeward side of the island is the most popu- lated and fertile, as rain falls there oftener than on the other side. The eastern or windward side is more rugged, with precipitous rocks washed at their base by the unbroken flow of the ocean. The following description of Tahiti is given in South Sea Bubbles by the Earl and the Doctor :-" G-reat mountains of every shade of blue, pink, grey, and purple, torn and broken into every conceivable fantastic shape, with deep dark mysterious gorges, showing almost black by contrast with the surrounding b...

Literature. A DAY WITH THE QUEEN'S HOUNDS. "Her Majesty's, Friday, Nov. 25, The Hall, Bushey, near Watford." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

literature* A DAY WITH THE QUEEN'S HOUNDS. "Her Majesty's, Friday, Nov. 25, The Hall, Bushey, near Watford." SINCE the rise in tallow, consequent on the Russian difficulty, our Governor has been uncommon pleasant ; and when I asked for a day's outing, I got it without a word, ex- cept, "I 'ope, Mr. Jenkins, you'll enjoy your- self. Something in the sporting line, I'll be bound." Now, sir, I don't mind saying that, in our establishment, I am considered quite a sporting gent, and that's something, for we've all a turn that way. Smith keeps a ratting dog, Spicer shoots a good deal-at Christmas time near Brighton,-Mivens rides in Rotten Row on' Sundays, when he can afford a horse ; and Johnson has a cousin keeps a gig of his own. I talk a good deal about hounds and hunting ; and though I was never out in my life before last Friday, they all think I have, lots of times, and look up to me according. Bushey Hall is not a Royal fixture in regu- lar course, but the owner, who subscribes thou...

Original Poetry. THE FIRST TEMPLE. AN EASTERN TRADITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

(Original yottrp»' THE FIRST TEMPLE. AN EASTERN TRADITION. IN Eden, when no sin was there, "Was seen a temple, pure and holy, Composed of jewels rich and rare, And built by hands of angels solely. It stood in Eden's sweetest dell, And was its greatest pride and treasure j Its aspect, so traditions tell, Was vast and gorgeous without measure. Its diamond columns-slender, tall Gave its aisles a marvellous lightness ; The ruby and the emerald wall Shed round its courts refulgent brightness. Its sapphire domes and opal floors, With topaz, amethyst, garnet, bordered, Its beryl and carbuncle doors, In beauteous contrast all were ordered. Its courts contained four fountains vast Of gems, with gorgeous flowers surrounded ; The waters, which were heavenward cast, Four rivers formed which Eden bounded. And hither came, at morn and eve, That earliest, sinless, pair of lovers The noble A.dam, beauteous Eve And over each an angel hovers. They reached this temple through the shade Of palm and fig...

A DRIFT FOR LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 29 August 1873

A DRIFT FOR LIFE. THE great Central Pacific Railway, just ' opened across the wholecontinentof America, from sea to sea, runs in the neighbourhood of some of the wildest territories now left to explorers. There is, particularly, one dis- trict beyond the Rocky Mountains, marked on the map as belouging partly to the State of Utah, and partly to that of Colorado, which has scarcely ever been approached until the last two years, and which contains some of the straugest scenery in the world, lt consists of a series of high table-lands in steps, one behiud the other, seamed with gulfs or chasms thousands of feet deep, at the bottom of which run the rivers. It is Completely barren, as every drop of water drains off at once from the surface above : an arid desert, with no vegetation beyond a prickly scrub, or a distorted cactus. "Whethei these extraordinary fissures called canons, are volcanic rents in the earth, or have beet produced by the action of the rivers them- selves, or by both to...
