Science Applied to Health. A NEW IMPORTATION BY MESSES. DAVID JONES & CO., SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

Science Applied to Health. A NEW IMPOETATION BS" MESSES. DAVID JONES ft CO., SYDNEY. There cnn je no doubt that the world owes mach to the researches o! tho German scientists. It is only a few weeks ago thit one of the greatest axioms universally recognised hy modern medical philosophy was rudely exploded by tte investigations of a Teutonic Medico. 'For the last half century it has been held an indisputable fact, that consumption was hereditary and constitutional, but the broadheadtd German Scientist demonstrates that it is an infectious complaint, and that the disease really con- sists of millions of the'most minute bacteria or insects, which can be transplanted and propagated with absolute certainty in the healthiest constitution. This is the re- sult with regard to one special form of complaint, but there are facts of no less importance concerning the general heil th, which ought long since have been noted by the British householder. Lairitz, one of the ablest writers of the time...

THE WORLD'S FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

THE WORLD'S FACTS. Thirty-three persons were killed, and 83 injured last year, in England, by boiler explosions. Just now more money is being drawn out of the French Savings' Banks than is being de- posited. A bad omen! In a London Court, recently, a doctor received £500 damages from a wealthy farmer for the abduction of his (the doctor's) daughter, aged 19. The farmer's SOB, aged 23, married the young lady, and the pair were living happily-yet the jury awarded the above. New York is a great city. It has the assessed value of personal property and real estate is £600,000,000. The State spends £2,400,000 on education. In the 115 active saving banks there are a million depositors, having an aggregate deposit of £84,166,200. In the 84 State Banka there are I deposits of £22,800,000. The total increase of I deposits at the banks last year was £10,000,000. The Fire and Life and other Insurance Com- panies have assets amounting to £129,200,000. The National Guard numbers 12,000 men. The p...

Aiding Thrifty People to Build. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

Aiding Thrifty People to Build. There cannot be the slightest doubt about the matter that the Australian Mutual Investment and Building Company of Sydney have led the way in pntting an easy, fair, and attractive plan before the whole Australian public, for investments in Metropolitan lands and the building of residences. One of the localités in which these attractive terms operate, is that magnificent indus trial centre Granville, at the junction of the Great Southern and (Western Railway lines, and the locale al- ready of some of the largest factories in Australia, notably, Hudson Brothers, Lacey's Locomotive Works, ic. This suburb has been fitly described as the future Birmingham of Australasia, and certainly, its wonderful growth in residences, business places, and industrial enterprise, in every way justify the prediction. It is iii the very centre of this thriving beehive that the land of the Australian Mutual Investment and Building Company is situated, and there can be no dou...

COLLISION—130 LIVES LOST. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

COLLISION-180 LIVES LOST. The following particulars of the loss of the State of Florida have reached her owners at Glasgow. It appears that the name of the barque with which the Florida collided was the Pomona. The catastrophe occured about midnight on April the 18th. The night was clear, but there was no moon at the time of the collision. Both vessels sank. The survivors were picked up by the Norwegian barque, Theresa, bound for Quebec, on the 20th, and twenty-four of their number were transferred on the 22nd to the barque Louisa, for Quebec, and were taken on board the steamship Titania on May 5. Mr. Allen, third officer of the State of Florida, reports that the survivors were thirty-five hours in the boats without food or water. The sea at the time of the collision was smooth* Of eight boats carried^ by the State of Florida, four were lowered, two having been previously smashed by the collision. Soon after the boats were lowered the State of Florida heeled to port and sank, stern...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

MISCELLANEOUS. The captain and eight seamen of a German barque, were recently washed overboard and drowned in the English channel. The French Campaign in Tonquin opens the whole Southern frontier of China to trade, and gives them a commercial hold on upwards of 50,000,000 of new people. A fearful scene recently occurred outside London, Grimalt's Circus having taken fire. The elephants broke loose, and the greatest difficulty was experienced in securing the hons and tigers which made fearful efforts to escape. Several performing horses were burnt. An extraordinary revelation was made on May 9, concerning the dynamite discovered in Birmingham, which throws a new light on the mystery of how the explosive materai used by the dynamitards is conveyed to that country. The bottle in which the nitro- glycerine was found at Egan's house is a flat flask, the inside being of thick brown glass. Experts who have examined it are strongly of opinion that the bottle was not made in England. It is ge...

My Only Love. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

My Only Love. My only love is always near, In country or in"town I see her twinkling feet, I hear The whisper of her gown. - She foots it ever fair and young, Her locks are tied in haste, And one is o'er her shoulder flung, And hangs below her waist. She ran before me in the meads ; And down this world:wom track She leads me on ; but while Bhe leads She never gazes back. And yet her voice is in my dreams, To witch me more and more ; That wooing voice ! Ah me, it seems Less near me than of yore. Lightly I sped when hope was high, And youth beguiled the chase, I follow, follow still ; but I Shall never see her face ! The Melbourne larrikins are being drafted to the provincial gaols, to be employed on borough works. This is hard on the noble Uurikin. Milk is one of the most active agencies in spreading diseases, such as typhoid, diptheria, &c. Badly drained yards and ill-ventilated stalls must be guarded against.

THINGS AND OTHERS. I PEU S.S. "Woosung on Monday last j another mob of horses arrived for team- ing purposes, the property of the Messrs. Fox. They number 27, and are a very good sample of workers ; but, owing to the rough weather experienced coming across the Gulf, they did not arrive in a very presentable- condition. Their land- ing was accomplished without accident. THE S.S. Timor sailed from Hongkong on the 31st for Port Darwin VIA Timor. THE s.s. Keening sailed from Sydney for Port Darwin on the 30th, and may bc expected here about thc 12th. THE steam yacht Cushie Doo arrived in harbour this morning. This vessel has. been expected here for some time, and fears were being entertained as to her safety. She is merely bound on a. ' yachting cruise.

Is most coses of vessels fixing on a time for sailing they are generally about two hours or more after before fairly getting away ; but in our case 8 o'clock a.m. was the nour fixed, and at a quarter after we were steaming round Fort Hill, having in tow thc smart lugger " Veronica," loaded with stores for Messrs. Fisher and Lyons' station on the above-named river. Thc tide was against us, but having a slashing breeze we made good heading to Point I Charles, when thc wind headed us, and a ; nasty westerly swell set in, making it tough work for the launch to get along towing the lugger. However, we gradually crawled along past Fish Reef (the scene of tho wreck of thc s.s. Brisbane), rounded Quail Island, and stood across for Point Brace, bringing np at 9 p.m. in Fog Bay in 9 fathoms of water. And, my word, what a night we had of it, for about midnight the tide turned and thc vessel shipped rollers over both sides, ever...

Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

Scientific. In the matter of music, the English and most other European nations are far behind the German. According to statistics recently published, there are 300 towns in the German Empire possess- ing orchestras and choral societies that give concerts in the season. The German navy now comprises thirteen ironclads, of which seven are frigates and six cor- vettes. There are thirty-one cruisers, of which twenty-one corvettes and ten gunboats, besides thirteen ironclad-gunboats and fifteen torpedo boats for coast defeuce. With regard to M. Von Burg's discovery, that copper is a preventative of cholera, a scientific writer says that Hahnemann announced this fact when Burg was in long clothes, and that had the latter read the works of Hahnemann, he would have saved himself thirty years' unnecessary search. It appears on statements by good author- ity, that while in England the hare breeds but once a year, and rarely has more than one leveret, in New South Wales it breeds twice a year...

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

Woman Items. Figures can't lie. You should however, see a fashionable beauty without her improver. The Hon. Victoria Bailie, one of the Maids-in-Waiting, was recently married, and as is the custom, the Queen made her a bridal present of £1000. The Queen, while on her recent visit to Darmstadt, stayed at the splendid mansion erected at a cost of £25,000, from her private purse, for|the late Princess Alice and her husband. The Queen gave £5000 as a marriage gift to her granddaughter, Victoria of Hesse, re- cently married, and also paid the little bi'l of the wedding festivities. The parents of the young Prince have agreed to allow him £2000 a year, to be increased to £3000 at their death. The French and English consuls have made strong representations to the Emperor of Morocco, with regard to the fearful floggings of women in that country. The unfortunate creatures are placed in a basket, to avoid exposure, and are then flogged across the back and shoulders, as many as eighty stripes ...

Personal. Sir Michael Costa, the great music com- poser,- died worth £30,000. .. He exchanged notes for gold. Henry Irving made £25,000 solid money by his American tour. Why, had he been in Par- liament, he could not have succeeded better. Mr. William King, the wealthy picture and curiosity dealer, who at his death recently, left £100,000 to St. George's Hospital, London, began life in the city a penniless lad. Herbert Spencer is now reported as having abandoned his projected trip to Australia. The EVENING NEWS says, his American lecturing tour distressed him. It more likely ruined him. Dr. Harman Tarrant, one of the cleverest medical men in the colonies, has been elected head of the New South Wales Masons. As a scientist, Dr. Tarrant is a success, but he is quite out of his element in politics.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAY. A few days ago, a Frencli transport, the Duprey de Dorme arrived at Melbourne, en route to Noumea, with 64 female convicts from Paris. This is the inauguration of an extraordinary, scheme decided upon hy the French Government, for the ameliora- tion of the condition of their criminal popu- lation. The female convicts leave French prisons for Noumea of their own free will, with the understanding that they are to select a husband from among the well-be- haved exiles in New Caledonia. The re ligious orders and officials are to arrange interviews between the parties with the view to matrimony, and every assistance is to be given to that end, but no compulsion whatever is to he used. This policy flies straight in the face of scientific teach- ings and the world's prejudices. But it may be that the French view is the correct one. It first of all recognises the prison population as human beings, and to such of these people as show signs of reformait opens the way to the ...

MR. GLADSTONE AND IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 1 August 1884

ME. GLADSTONE AND IRELAND. Once again (says a London Liberal writer) ! the House of Commons has been called upon to express its opinion on the question of justice to Ireland. The crowning act in the career of the great Liberal leader, has been to say that, once for all, Ireland shall be, not in name, but in every deed, a true portion of the United Islands. True to its antipathy to the people, and especially to the people of { Ireland the Tory ass gives one dying kick at the friends of popular liberty and justice-. The effort was assigned to Mr. Chaplin, the member for Mid-Lincolnshire-properly so assigned, for who so competent as an authority on the rights of the people, as a gentleman whose chief glories have benn .von on the turf and in the betting ring ! Mr. Chaplin first proposed that Ireland should be excluded from the Franchise Bill. Then, like a coward, seeing that all the supporters of the Government had assembled to vote against hun, he withdrew his motion. But he did not e...

A SHAM HEKO-SHAMEFUL FKAUD. Samuel Green, thirty, having the appear- ance of a seaman, was brought up for final examination in London May, 8, charged with obtaining money, food, and lodging from about thirty or forty hard-working people in the metropolis and other parts of the country by representing himself as Mr. Harding, the seaman who threw the Uve sheU overboard at Alexandria, and that he had been in the Naval Brigade at Tel-el Kebir, and was shot in the left leg. He had also represented himself as the long-lost son of a widow saved from the Eurydice, and made other false statements. Lydia Banks, Uving with her husband at 2, Eaton street, Lambeth, said that John Jones, a lodger, had a son in the navy, in Egypt. On the 22nd of March the prisoner caUed at her house dressed in Naval uniform with four ribbons on his breast, and very lame. He told her he had just come from Haslar Hospital, where he had left Jones. Witness exclaimed, "Is he dead? Do teU me aU about it " He replied he...
