A NOVEL WATER-CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 3 August 1894
A NOVEL WATER-CURE. A parish priest of W6rishofen, Ba tavia, named Fathir Sebastian Kneipp, is attracting attention to himself by his success in the practice of the system of healing known as hydropathy and herbalism. He undertakes, by a com hination of faith, water and herbs, to ab solutely cure every form of disease, imaginary or real, and it is said that a considerable measure of success has at tended his methods. The special features of the Kneipp cure are short baths in cold water, putting on the clothing immediately and without dry ing the skin, with coarse homespun linen for clothing, walkins in the early morn ing barefoot among dewy grass, walk ing in sandals or barefoot in cold water, and wearing regularly a coarse linen shirt next the skin. He also uses a few preparations from the simplest herbs. His theory is that local maladies must be treated through the strengthening of the general organism and in the rectifi cation of the circulation of the blood. He has practised his...
HOW ANTS RECOGNISE EACH OTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 3 August 1894
HOW ANTS RECOGNISE EACO OTHliER, The most extraordinary thing about ants is that all individuals of the same community, which may number half a million, or of the same .confederation, which always has a population of many mil lions, constantly recognise each other. A stranger will at once be known and dragged out of the nest or the territory. It is supposed that on meeting together they exchange some signs or passwords, and thus recognise their fellow country people; and Sir John Lubbock made an interesting experiment to see if it is really so. He rendered a number ,of ants insensible and uuable to exchange any signs. This was, it must be said, a rather diffiicult task, as chloroform was fatal to them, and they obstinately refused to be intoxicated by whisky. " However," he says, "I got over the difficulty by putting them into whisky. for a few moments. I took 50 speci mnens, 25 from one nest and 25 from another, made them dead drunk, mnerked each with a spot of paint, and put thehi...

The Guardian. PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1894. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 3 August 1894
PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. FRID4 Y, AUGUST 3,1894. THE.Treasurer's Budget proposals will not be received in either town..or country with unmixed satisfaction. Whatever else may be said :about his' financial statement it cannot be :pro nounced a master-piece- off,:-finane; Some needful reductions have been made in several directions, not so much in'favor of free trade as to increase the revenue, and of these nct a great many people will complain, though there may be some who will think that the revenue would fare still better if the cutting down process had been carried a little further. One of the proposals will, however, shock-a good many and cause a feeling of surprise and regret in the breasts of almost every one. This is the introduction of the "drag net" system, which 'is adapted to catch all the little fishes, and a good many large ones as well. ' It is estimated that about £100,000 can be raised in this way, and when the matter is looked into it will be found that the bulk of...

[corr.] Grand Hotel, 28th July, 1894. Sec. Healeaville Shire Council, Dear Sir,-We are in receipt of your favor of the l7th inst,, wherein you inform us your Council has instructed you to apply to us for a further sum of £2 12s. Qd. on account of the drain fronting our premises. We are somewhat at a loss how to take the matter. Sqrely this is aqother of those historical jokes for which our Council is becoming quite famous ; or are we to take it as a direct ijsuit-a spasmodic effort to over-ride the willing horse ? However, whether the demand is due to any idiosyn crasy from which the Council may sutffer, or whether they are trying to establish a precedent for their future guidance, we beg you to inform them that we decline in toto to @qtertain them on the subject. We are, sir, yours truly, 18eRT & COLES.
(To the Editor of the Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 10 August 1894
(To the Editor of the Guardian.) SiR,-The general impression derived from the remarks of several of the coun cillors at their last meeting, as reported in your last issue, together with the so-called " be not received" vote, in reference to our reply to their unjust demand for money, is that they and not us are the aggrieved, parties, and further that our communica tion must have been of a most unwar rantable nature. I should like that you would publish the unreceived letter, which I enclose herewith, and thereby remove this erroneous impression. We generously contributed £5 towards the cost of the drain fronting our premises, and in "doing so removed a time-honored nuisance and an eyesore to the township. It was dis tinctly understood by all parties that this. amount should be our first and final con-. tribution. What, then, do the Council mean by the demand ? This problem, we notice; they do not attempt to solve. Apologising for trespass on your space, we can only say in conclusio...
