THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 December 1894
THE TEETH. Neglect of the teeth is very likely to re sult in debility of the nervous system. If our teeth were not of the vs:r'y greatest im portance indeed in the animal economy Providence would not have placed them in our months. Yet some people think that mastication is a matter of but little mo ment. Theyhurry over it and suffer as cordingly, wondering, *pr rbaps, what has or thrice.a day the teeth ought to be brushed, especially after food; and the paste or powder used, while containing no thing likely to injure the enamel, should be one that disinfects as well as cleanses; even charcoal itself, unsightly though it may appear, is better than some of the quack, prettily-got-up nostrums we see ad vertised.

THE OPIUM CURSE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 December 1894
THE OPIUM CURSE. In 1840 a dispute arose with -China about the trade in opium, a drug which the Chinese loveto smolke and chew, although hundreds die from its poisonous effeets. The Emperor, alarmed at the growth of the practice, forbade the importation of opium; but British merchants, who made great profits by the trade, still smuggled it into the country. The mandarins in authority seized and destroyed many cargoes of the forbidden drug. Captain Eliot (the Com missioner) and other British subjects were imprisoned. War was declared. British troops soon forced Canton to surrender; and in the north Sir Henry Pottinger, hav ing captured Amoy, marched to the very walls of Nankin. There a peace was con cluded, by which the island of Hong Kong was given up to Britain; and besides Can tono, the four ports of Amoy, Foo-Choo, Ning-po, and Shanghae were opened to foreign trade. -History of the BritishE?mpira.
