How far away are the Stars? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

How far away are the Stars? Of the hundred million or more stars which are visible with astronomical instruments, the distances from the earth of only a very few have been meas ured with even an approximation to accuracy. Most of the stars appear to be so far away that the change in their apparent place caused by viewing them from opposite sides of the earth's orbit — and that orbit is about one hundred and eighty-six million miles across — is so slight that it escapes certain detection. Only about fifty stars have thus far yielded definite results in the attempt to measure their distances, and even those results are too often exceedingly conflicting and uncertain. The nearest star thus discovered is one of the first magnitude, not visible from the United States or Eu:ope. It is the star called Alpha in the constellation of the Centaur in the southern hemisphere of the heavens. The distance of this star appears to be something like twenty trillions of miles, or about two hundred and...

An M.P.'s Diet. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

An M.P.'s Diet. Sir Isaac Holden, who is one oE the oldest members of the Hoase of Commons, some time ago gave an interviewer particulars as to his diet. Foods which contain lime, says Sir Isaac, are necessary to the system when it is under the process of building up — when the bone iB still being formed ; but when maturity has been attained, then it should be studied how best the blocking up of tbe arteries can be prevented. Lime foods should be eliminated from the daily menu, and foods that resist classification should be substituted. It has been pointed out by many scientific men in recent time — and I have myself realised tbe truth of the teaching — that fruit is the most beneficial food for man after be has reached maturity. I do not mean fruit alone, for I am not tv vegetarian, but as the principal item of every meal. Flesh meat I consider for renewing waste of muscle, if you take exercise or perform physical labour j but as one advances in years lea's meat is. ad visible. I t...

A Long Swim. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

A Long Swim. Dr. J udsou Daland, who has been investi gating tbe cholera epidemic in Italy and'Sicily for the Health Officer of the port, writes the following to Dr. Jenkins' secretary : — ' Whi le in Messina searching for cholera in order to keep our Health Officer well informed of tbe sanitary condition of Sicily, I read o£ ine rorriuiy airoug current una wnirlpool ia the Strait of Messina, more especially at the point between Scylla and Cbarybdis.

HUNTER RIVER AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL EXHIBITION. FIRST DAY, WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

' Eira m nmu m iiiiu otibi* IF 2 B ST DAY, WEDNESDAY. It it were only possible to find u man who had not been at n, show since that eventful May morn ing in 1841, when Maitland displayed its treasures in agriculture, equities, and bovines, in the back yard of tho old Albion Inn in High-street, and convey the modern Kip Van Winkle to the spacious ground of the Hunter Itivcr Agricultural and Horticultural Association on Wednesday, it is safe to assume that the veteran would gasp with astonish ment and stare until his eyes took up a prominent position on his cheeks. The growth of tho Society has been astounding, indeed well nigh, marvellous; and we can well pardon the gentleman who strenuously persisted in bestowing upon the Society's present bid for public patronage the altogether grandiloquent, if somewhat misleading, designation of 'the Jubilee Exhibition,' Certainly it ia fifty years ago since a show was held in West Maitland, but the knowledge ' whether ouv present institution is ...

The country around looks well, prospects of wicter bein' very good. - p The late rains have played havoc with our roads and streets ; the drains have become choked and waterways silted up.

Cousens, J'a.P., John Merchant was charged with using threatening language towards James Phillips on the Dungog road. The evidence for prosecution being taken, the magistrates dismissed the case, remarking that such petty matter should not have been brought into court — John Meehan was charged with throw ing stones on the house of James Phillips. The offender pleaded guilty, and na? lined 5s, and 5s Gd costs of court ; or, in default thereof, forty-eight To-day is a public holiday here, in honour of the Maitland Show.

DISTRICT NEWS. BRANXTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [From Our Correspondents ] 5 BRANXTON. Ea i l wa v Management. — It will be remembered that some weeks ago a large and influential meeting was held in the School of Arts for the purpose of urging upon the Eailway Commissioners the desira bility of allowing mail trains to and from Sydney to stop at Branxton station for the convenience of people in this district. It was pointed out that such an arrangement, while not unnecessarily delaying trains, would be a great boon and would be largely availed of by tbe travelling public. A respectably-worded petition to this effect was drawn up and numerously signed, while Mr. J. Bercini, sen., was entrusted with its presentation, and proceeded to Sydney for that purpose. He, however, failed to succeed in his mission, the railway authorities having curtly refused to grantithis slight concession , urging as a reason that the returns show the passenger traffic of Greta to be greater than that of Branxton, apparently quite oblivious o...

UNCLE SIM'S CLAIRVOYANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

UNCLE SIM'S CLAIRVOYANCE. Uncle Sim Wiley had followed the sea from boy hood, and like a true 6ailor had always kept his mind free from worry about any possessions beyond those contained in his 'chist.' His voyages of thirty or forty months had frequently brought him barely enough for his outfit. When he arrived at a 'mate's lay' he had a sickly wife, and now and then a child that came and stayed only long enough to swell the doctor's bill. So Sim on landing usually found himself with little enough to square hi3 accounts ; or if there was anything left, he threw it into his wife's lap, told her to draw upon the agent, and went serenely ' back to the sea again with a Bingle eye to the one 6 duty of returning to Nantucket in three or four * years with enough to pay the bills again. r At length, on returning from a voyage, he found awaiting him not only the familiar bills, but some i for the last requirements of mortals. There was no one left to contract debts for him to pay. * The old...

The Jubilee and National Exhibition. THIRD DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

The Jubilee and National Exhibition. THIED DAY.

The sun shone out brightly and rather warmly, which during the day had a good effect upon the ground. The line of | route outside the cricket circle and in the vicinity of the booths, in fact where traffic wa3 thickest the previous day was thick with mud, which as it was worked up had an unpleasant odour, plainly showing that the flood deposit of last year was being worked up. The President, Treasurer, and other officials were busy from the time the gates opened at ten a.m. Some loads of ashes and sawdust were obtained, and by noon people were able to get about more comfortably, by means of the footways made.

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [By Zara.] The production of ' The Second Mrs. Tanqueray' is far and away the most exciting event of the week. Everyone who has the courage of his or her opinions goes to see it, and afterwards upholds its moral in forcible language. But the ' prurient prude' condemns without mercy. There has been enough said and written about tho play and its object to fill volumes ; time only will tell how much of good will accrue from Rup.h diKapntion oF flip morals of the day. This, however, one can safely say in spite of all realism, when spades are called by their name and little is left for the imagination : the true woman pays little attention to the mere words, but her heart aches at the sight of Paula's unhappiness and rebels at the dire injustice of Jife where a woman must bear all the blame and en dure all the suffering because ' a man must live a man's life.' The house was crowded from floor | to ceiling on Saturday night. Most of us were anxious to see how Mr. Pi...
