After Death—What? [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 10 August 1899
After Death— What ? Man occupies in view oE death a situa tion that is peculiar; for ho is probably the only being that knows he has to die. . Tho battle against death spurs an immense num ber of men to study and think ; and all the great intellectual and moral creations in art, religion, aud science have been produced under the influence of the feelings excited by the certainty of that event. Man ia'not, however, always .haunted with the thought of death. While he is in full.vigour of health and strength he is not afraid of it and takes little heed of it. The idea that ho will hove to die some day rarely enters his mind, aud when it does present itself it is so vaguo aud rulateB to an event ao uncertain as to the' time when it will occur that no distress is produced by it. This forgetfulness of death in the strong man follows from the important agency ex ercised by hia psychical condition. TLa - ? ; ? ? iL ? luo jfuuug auu viguruus uuuuuru luuia* ?elves' very little about death, al...

? An Exciting Chase. ' ' ' Well,' said the red-faced man, * the ] most' exciting chase lever had happened a few years ago in Russia.

Finally, there , was only one wolf left', yet on it came;' with 'its fierce eyes glaring in anticipation of a good hot Bupper.' Here the man who had been sitting quietly in the corner burst forth into a fit of laughter. .

A Cradle Incubator. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 10 August 1899
A Cradle Incubator. The idea of the cradle applied to the in cubator is indisputably a happy one, because it dispels every idea of an ' apparatus'' from the. agitated minds of young mothers, does not wound their very legitimate Belt-respect,- and makes them unhesitatingly accept a- process of treatment, that, unfortunately, has hitherto, often been refused under the pre text that incubatore are of. funereal .aspect and resemble coffins or the show cases' of anatomical museums. The new aDnaratus. consists ofah ordinary cradle of tinned copper, closed above by a movable plate of glass,' and heated beneath through a reservoir of ' water which a kerosene lamp keeps continually and very regularly at the temperature fixed by1 the physicician. In it we remark three essen- , tial partB: The incubation chamber,, the boiler, and the lamp. The chaimber, which is all in one piece, contains a* movable -bed formed of wire gauze, a bowl containing a sponge for moistening the air, and a ther momete...

RED POLLED CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 10 August 1899
RED POLLED CATTLE. This might) be described as an im proved breed of ' English stock, and though.the great antiquity claimed for it by its ablest admirers promises to remain for ever aymatter of donbt, it ;can now rank aidfon^ the best of our British breeds as being a hardy, thrifty, general-purpose cow, capable of high development both in milk and beef. The polled cattle of Norfolk and Suffolk have. always been spoken of as very heavy milkers, and their angular lean forms and large stomachs, denoting the true- dairy cow, were often a subject of ridicule by writers who favoured the beef breed. While some authorities claim that the Red Polls came to England with the Danes, having been descended from the Hungarian breed of a similar nature, others, among them being Youatt, are of opinion that they got their hornless characteristic from the Polled Galloway. It seems hardly necessary to go to the Galloway for the hornless characteristic, when we consider that centuries ago England had i...

' I should call .it a miraole,' he said.

A Visitor from Another World.

' This is ? the ...' Bruce meteorite/-!: f a.; monster. stranger ;trom we sines wnicn .weigns very nearly-four tons. , Where .it came from, of course, ho man knows, but it 'is known that it fell at Murrangeng, South Australia; . It chanced upon the property 1 of a farmer who did not happen to have any use for meteorites weighing fouT tons, and so he sold his unlooked-for and decidedly awkward acquisition to a Mr. Bruce; for £2. Mr. Bruce, who now lives in Scotland, bought it for the purpose of presenting it to the British Museum. -' The Government of Victoria interested itself in trying to retain the curiosity, and offered Mr. Bruce £1,000 for his rights, but the Scotsman replied that 'money would not buy it,' so the article is now on its way over. It is composed of almost pu...
Funny Facts About Food. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 10 August 1899
Fanny Facts About Food. The saying that 'what is one man's meat is another man's poison ' still holds good; and its equivalent is. met with in other languages besides our own. We are all of us glad to avail ourselves of: the fruits and vegetables of distant COUUiries, ttxiu uuuvt, uiauucsi auj hesitation in 'tasting.' those we know aro eaten by others.. Bt|t it is curious that we cannot witlieuj^difficulty bring ourselves. to eat their-.jqaeat — any niore than in many cases t^py can be induced to eat ours. There is no real reason; for instance, why a 'puppy properly bred 'and ' fed should not be as good as a - rabbit what Englishman would 'eat a little doggie ? It is not merely ' sentimental prejudice, for it required the terrible starvation of besieged Paris to induce Europeans to eat rats and mice, which the ordinary Chinaman regards, as dainties. It is said that since the siege of Paris the taste of the Parisian for such strange meats as horse and donkey flesh, has been developed...
An Oyster's Age. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 10 August 1899
. in Oyster's Age. ? ? ? .. He who wishes may' find out the exact age of an oyster,' though he has not the tell-tale evidence in teeth. The lines in the groove of the hinge of the shell tell the whole story, each lino representing a year. .'. . - An ovster is of aire, at four vears— that is, he is old enough to vote, take care of a family, ail d go to market. Going to market is a disastrous under taking, for !a four-year-old oyster is particularly palatable.. . By this it must not be supposed, thatfafter an oyster has passed the four-layer period, and has five, six, or even- teh! jvrinkles, he is a back number. . Indeed, .there are records of oysters being eaten just after cele brating their thirtieth birthday, and in most caseB they formed a delicate meal. Thirty is an unusual age for an oyster to attain, because - few are given an opportunity to live so- long. ; If left to enjoy life in his own way, it is quite probable that the oyster would become an octogenarian, or even a cente...
