A Spider's Clever Hinge. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

A Spider's Clever Hinge. The artistic work of spiders has at all times attracted the interest of naturalists and laymen alike. One of the moot striking aocomplishments in this lineie the neat of a spider which lived in Spain and Southern France-the Cteniza fodiens. This spider bores a tube-li e hole about lin. or sm. in the ground, which it lines with a fine weft, soft as. velvet. Over the " top the little insect builds a lid of earth which fits exactly over the somewhat slant ing aperture. The under side ofth*cever is aleso padded with the downy weft: in such a way that one side of it is hinged to the lower tube. The hinge is strong enough to hold the two together. The upper side of the lid is not covered with the web, but looks like the earth which surrounds this artistic domicile, which makes it very difficult to discover the presence of the spider. Theinner side of the lid is pro ided .with small holes, from which the animal hangs suspended when inside its house, with the lid cl...

The First Physicians. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

The First Physicians: Writers generally agree that medicine first became a profession among the Egyp. tians. Its origin, however, is involved m fabulone and impenetrable obscurity. In Egypt and in most of the earlier nations the priests were th practitioners of the healing art by means of magical incantations, which, of course, produced their good or bad im pressions through the medium of the imag ination, the ellicacy of their prescriptions bearing a pretty exact ratio to the supersti tion and credulity of their patients. The medical practice of the Assyrian priests consisted mainly of magical arts, while the actual learning they possessed was carefully concealed in a mystical technic ality. Among the early Jews, the priests, who were the physicians also, treated leprosy and other diseases with various ceremonies to affect the imagination, at the same time en forcing judicious regulations to avoid the sources of contarion and promote personal cleanliness. In Greece, the genius of H...

Has He Two Brains? [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

Has He Two Brains ? MI. Jacques Inaudi, after puzzling the eavants of the French Institute to ac count for' his peculiar skill in solving arathmetical and mathematical problems, has come to London in the hope of finding some one who will be able to unravel to him the myster?ofhis eistence. The mannerin which he manpulateseextilions, quadrillions, billions and millions is enough to make a chancellor of the exchequer envious, while for cube roots and square roots his appetite is simply roracious. In fact X. Inandi seems to live on figures. For example, he performed the addition of six lines of six figures, a sum in sub. traction beginning with sextillions and descending to units, the multiplicatiou of six figures by six figures, the division of six figures by five figures and the extraction of the square and cube roots of five figures all at once, and repeated from beginning to end, without looking at them, all the figures on the blackboard representing these involved loreover, he doe...

Here is an extract from a letter of ope of the Border Police, republished 26th October by the "Cape Times," a paper favorable to the Company.. It runsas follows:-"'As you know, I am in, the Border.

We get no pay alter having crusised the border, but we fight under these conditions: supposing we come out with a clean 'skin each nmn gets a' 3000 morgeli farm in m atabole land, fifteen claims, and 'five alluvial claims, with a share in the loot.

BULGARIAN ATROCITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

BULGARIAN ATROCITIES. It was on 7th May, 1876, that Achmet Aga andhis warriors appeared before Datak. iHe summoned the inhabitants to give up their arms, bat, mistrusting him, they refused to do so and defended themselves for two days, until it became evident that the Pomaks were getting the beet of the fight. Then came a parley; Achmet Aga swore a solemn oath that if the villagers would.deliver up their arms not a hair of their heads should be touched. lThey did so, and next came a de mand for all the money in the place. This, of course, was given up. Then the Pomake entered the vilage, and put all the thabi.b tents to the sword without distinction of age or sex. The houses were burned, and nothing was left of Batak save A PILS OF S31oOrLM, auN; ASJIFr AND CORP?Y . When all was still, and the work was done, Achmet and his mountaineers returned to their villages. We were accompanied to the church by the kmet, or mayor, a well-spoken, good-looking man of about thirty years of age. It...

TRAVELLED ON CHEEK. Orlando Bogga wanted to go around the world, and be had nothing on earth to go with bat time and cheek. It has been said that time is money, but for some reason Mr Doggs found it impossible to convert his time into any collateral for bread and meat and steamboat fare and railroad riding and other necessaree incident to living or travelling. In taking stock of his resources one day, it esddenly occurred to Boggs that Lis cheek might be more available, and he put himaslf into a deep thinking trance. Results fol lowed and Orlando Boggs went abroad ; In fact, he went all round the world; and yet he left home without the ghost of a penny The ooean steamship Orpheus was adver tised to sail on Saturday night at 1-T o'clock.

THE LAW OF HOMICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

THE LAW OF HOMICIDE. A good deal of public interest has been manifested reently in the vexed question as to how a man is justified, under given cir oumstancea. in taking the life of another. The late fatal shooting case at 3oones I'ond intensified the gene.al curiosity felt upon the subject, therefore the following article from "Chambe:s's Journal" will prove of special interest : " The Common Law of England holds him guiltless who has taken another's life in such circumstances as show justifiable homicide, excusable homicidd, homicide by misadventure, or homicide by chance. medley; and the statute declares, affirming it, That no punishment shall be incurred by any person who shall kill another by misfor. tune or in his own defence or in anyother man neor without felony; in either of the cases given the so-called Right of Self-defencemay arise. That right of self-defence, although recognised by statute, is not absolute; it is a concession which, if used for retaliative or revengeful...
