Kerang Times. Published Tuesdays and Fridays, WITH WEEKLY SUPPLEMENT. TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 14 January 1890
Puhlished Tuesdays and Fridays, WITH WEEKLY SUPPLEM1E T. TrESD.I1', I.A1 NItl Y 14, 1500. Iv is, perhaps, natural " 1 1 eonough that during the holiday seasons of the year there should be an abnormal record of petty crime and accident in and around the metropolis. It is to Melbourne and its neighborhood that holiday makers at such times chiefly resort, and, business having been entirely laid aside for pleasure or its pursuit, the thief and larrikin are thereby afforded an enlarged field for the display of their peculiar talents, while the risk of accident to individuals or crowds is largely increased. During the last three weeks the metropolitan journals have fairly bristled with reports of disasters, criminal and accidental. 1)Day by day our attention has been drawn to cases of assault and theft, to fires and railway collisions, to deatlhs by drowning or gunshot wounds, and generally to a variety of accidents which have either caused loss of life or limb, or which have been miracn ...

SACCHARINE IN DIABETES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890
iSACCHARINE `IN DIABETES. Aa receint meeting of the French Aca deiy of Medicine, this subject came up for discussion. M. Dujardin-Beaumetz loolked at the matter in the same light as M.Worms; he thought all theories should be abandoned, and paurely clinical attitude adopted. The flcts cited by M. Worms did not seem to him to lead to the conclusions adopted by that gentleman. Thus a continual thirst was certainly a common symptom of dia betes, as also was polyuria. Bunt this must be qualified by the fact that the analysis of urine was useless for ascertaining the varia tion in the quantity of sugar it contains, and the degree of dryness of the mouth has likewise to be considered. Polyphagia was also common, and it was always a bad sis for a diabetic not to be a good enter. ie agreed with regard to the long duration of diabetes, but remarked that sufferers from that complaint were not more menaced by maladies or disorders than were persons in good health. if. Dujardin-Beaumetz classes ...
CHINESE MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890
CHINESE MAXIMS. Tats following selections of maxims, moral, political, and philosophical, from the popular work of the Chinese, show that the people of that country are not altogether the stupi dullards which they are generally represented to be. The well pointed morals and acute observations these maxims con tainnotonly bear testimony to the character of the Chinese mind, but forcibly exhibit that which is true and that which is good -whether in morality, philosophy, or natural policy-are alike adapted to all nations andl to all people: The loftiest building arises from small aceretions. The straightest trees are the first.felled. The people are the roots of the State; if tihe roots are flourishing the State will endure. Life is a joumrney, and death a return home. It is better to suffer an injury than to commit one. . Causeless anger resembles waves without wind. Tile wisest must in a thousand times be once mistaken; the most foolish in a thousand times be once right. Forbearance ...
ANECDOTE OF PETER THE GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890
ANECDOTE OF PETEn TUIE G1USAT.-A hboyard, with whom the Czar Peter was once crossing a river in a boat, ventured to contradict him in conversation. The Czar seized him by the collar, and pre pared to throw him overboard. "You ma'y drown me," said the boyard, "but your doing so will not embellish your history." Peter was struck with this re mark, shook hands with the boyard, and ever after distinguished him with his esteem and friendship. ONE of the chief roots from which sym pathy springs is a power of imagination. We may know something about ourselves; but we are left to imagine whatever we can about other people. Now, if any one were utterly destitute of imagination, lie woulh likewise be utterly destitute of sympathy. iHe could form no idea of the condition of others, their thoughts or feelings, tempta lions or needs, sorrowsor joys. How coill hie feel with or for them if lie could form no picture in his mind of what they felt? Happily no one is left in so forlorn a state.

WHEN GOING ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 17 January 1890
WHEN GOING ABROAD. Tnes question of the wardrobe suitable for the sea voyage is always more or less perplexing, and until two or three voyages teach one theway by experience little com fort is to be had. On the first voyage one is apt to take far too many things; on the second, perhaps, not enough impediments are brought along, and neither extreme is desirablenor pirasant. First should be borne in mind that woollen clothing is far more wholesome and also more comfortable than any other material for night and day wear. Plenty of under flannels will be needed as well as outer wrappings of thick texture. Soft, warm angora wear is best. The thick, warm wrapper of soft wool is an indispen sable article. Jersey flannel is better for this gown than blanket cloth, because it is lighter, and takes up less space in the steamer trunk. A sealskin jacket is, per haps, the most convenient of wraps on slhip= board, although a fur-lined garment is a very desirable wrap also. Ieugs in plenty and Him...
