Marriage a la Mode in Belgium. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898
• Marriage a la Mode in Belgium. There is nothing new under the sun, and the New Worn fin and the New Era have long ago been anticipated in the neighbourhood of Ghent. Here, among the working classes, the triumph of woman has already taken place. Women take the lead in all tilings ; they are the protectors, not the protected, the pro posers, not the proposed to. The- crux lies in their financial independence.,. As h. rule, the women are richer than the men, for, although they do not earn so much, they make their money go further. They very rarely marry young, and they have a fancy for choosing husbands for themselves. Many a Belgian girl, who goes straight from school to a fac tory, has amassed quite a tidy little dot by the time she is 30. She then begins to look around her male acquaintances. She selects the one she thinks most suit able, and offers to rnarry him. He may refuse, but he rarely does so : for he has gon.erally been chosen on account of his youth and pliability. A gla...

The Rule of Islam. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898
T1W Itule of Islam. "What is .the result ?" asks a writer' In the " Quarterly Review," " Barbar 'i'siti, oppression, lawlessness, corruption, cruelty,'ignorance, decadence have set tled like an inexorable blight on all the lands of Islam. There is no exception ; not a single bright spot anywhere; no gr6en oasis in all that wilderness of sav age, desolation. And those lands.were once fert'ile,. populous, and nourishing ; homes o£ the arts, of'science, and of literature." Persia, Central Asia, Asia Minor, Ar menia, it is shown, were fruitful, pros perous, and civilised before they were overun by Islam. We know what they are now. " Under Islam," continues the ' writer, " there is no such thing as na tionality. The social and political bond is neither race nor language, nor country; it is religion. There is only one Mussul man State—Dar-al-Islam, or the Ma homedan World. Islam ignores all other distinctions. . . . The present Turkish Ambassador in London is a sub ject of the Sultan ; hu...

Infectiousness of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 8 January 1898
Infectiousness of Milk. • We have heard much lately as to the liability of contagion from milk ; and if the analysts and bacteriologists are to be-relied upon, the use of that article of diet is .certainly not free from danger. Several pathologists of the United States have undertaken a careful and exhaus tive examination of milk chiefly with a view,to determine whether milk from a tuberculosis udder is infectious. One hundred and twenty-one microscopical examinations of milk and cream were made of specimens from 36 different ani mals, and bacilli were found in the milk of twelve animals These animals were all infected with tuberculosis ; but their udders were free from disease. Milk feeding experiments were made upon rabbits, pigs, and calves, with the result that about 4 per cent of the rabbits, 50 per cent of the pigs, and 33 per cent of the calves became infected. Out, of 33 samples of the general milk supply of Boston, taken from various sources, tubercle bacilli was found in 1...
