MISCELLANEOUS. An Exceedingly Married Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 20 March 1879

UnSCEIiliAKEOUS. I An Exceedingly Married Man. Uneasy lies tlio head that wears a crown applies particularly, ono might think, to the King of Siam, who has, or had, 600 com missioned wives and 2400 wives by brevat, all of them living in one yo^t palace at Bang kok. Most men wou]td::rather, Relinquish all power and royal authority than he quite so ? much married ; ? hut, we presume, the poly gamous sovereign has got accustomed to his super-abundant connuhiality. Ho is said to he an amiable and enlightened Prince, and to be sufficiently advanced not to grieve over the recent death of the -vyhite elephant, a sacred beast among the iBuflhists. He pro bably thinks his 3000 wives, elephant enough for him without concerning himself about the actual quadruped. He must be amiablo, surely, to get on smootlily, as ho is said to do, with 3000 women, all of whom are reputed to esteem and like him. We wonder how he manages. There must bo somo subtle secret in it which the Western world has never ...

The S. III. Herald and the Bishop of Sydney.

Hard Times in England and Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 20 March 1879

Hard Times in England and Scot land. Sandy M'Danden, the Scottish correspond . ent of the Loeds (Eng.) ' National Inde pendent and People's Advocate' writes as follows of tho times in Scotland : — There is no improvement in the condition of trade throughout Scotland. Indeed, every day only sees matters in a worse state, and if there is not a crisis soon one is apt to believe that something serious will happen. No less than 1500 masons are on strike just now in Glasgow ; and the joiners of that city have had their wages reduced from 8d. to 7d. an hour, and work only under protest. In many other Scottish towns, minors, masons, joiners, and othor tradesmen have had their pays reduced, and work under protest in hope of better times. If anyono wishes to see the results of trade depression let him go to Glasgow. During last week thousands of unemployed in that city have hold meetings in order to discover how to find a means of .subsistance. I felt ever so sad to witness numbers of these m...

"Heat is Life—Cold is Death." [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 20 March 1879

'Heat is iiife— Cold is Death.' j There is no groater fallacy than the opinion of many, particularly tho young and strong and vigorous, that winter — especially a sharp frosty one, with plenty of snow, — is the most healthy season of the year. Yory few persons seem to roaliso that cold is tho con dition of death, and that in botli warm and cold climates it is our unconscious effort to maintain our bodily heat at a temperature of ninoty-oight degrees that wears us out. To this temporaturo, called 'blood-hoat,' every cubic inch of oxygen that sorves to vitaliso our blood must be raised by our own bodily heat, or life ceases. Since in cold weather the maintenance of a sufficiently elevated bodily temperature becomes very often a difficulty too great for our strongth, the advent of a severe winter is really more to be dreaded than a visitation of a pestilence. The saying, 'Heat is life, cold is death,' has a striking illustration and confirmation in the reports now regularly submitted b...
