THE DANGERS OF TELEGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 March 1885

THE DANGERS OF TELEGKAPHY. !The following passage is taken from .the 1 .Edinburgh Daily Express:—" Medical men say there is in telegraphing much that leads, to brain-mischief, and one case may be quoted here, that of a large Scotch office, where three cases of lunacy occurred in as many years—a phenomenal state of affairs, of course. An American publication, devo ted to telegraph matters, mentions ;two re - cent cases of operators dying at their posts. ' Ned' Cummins, employed in an office in Virginia, was engaged in 'receiving' a,press 1 .report, when he signalled to the operator at the other end, ' Been spitting blood; take it easy.' Directly afterwards the poor fellow dropped from his chair dead, but—if it be not brutal to say so—there was no great de lay to the'press report, for very shortly after wards another hand was secured, who wired to the ' sending' clerk these words : ' Cum mins just died; I'm his substitute; go ahead after ' address," this being the last word written by...

M. EDMOND ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 March 1885

M. EDMOND ABOUT. Eight addresses were, delivered at the grave, of M. About. The first was by M. Caro, who expressed regret at About's diver sion from literature to politics, for which he was not fitted, and which brought him only dissensions and disappointments. After mentioning About's pride in his humble origin, M. Caro sketched his brilliant colle giate career, his sudden rise to fame by his " Grece Contemporine," and his rapid suc cession of novels, and praised his trans parent style. He concluded by saying " About loved France with passionate ten derness. Twice in 1870 and 1872, in Al sace, of which lie could not realise the loss, he was near paying dearly for the impru dence of his patriotism. Quite recently, one of the last things which he wrote in his beloved journal, with a faltering hand, was a short, energetic, sober, and charming speech—a greeting which he sent, after a vote in the Chamber, to our brave soldiers in Touquin, to show them that, in spite of discussions,'-Fr...
