The Wrong Eye. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
The Wrong Eye. It was from an old engineer that the writer learned this bit of wisdom: Biding on the engine of the fast express, I caught a cinder that gave me the mo.t exerutiating pain. I began to rub the eye with both hands. "Let your eye alone and rub the other eye," said the engineer. I thought he was challing me bnd so worked the harder. "I know you doctors think you know it all, but if you will let that eye alone and rub the other the cinder will be out in two minutes," persisted - heengineer. I began to rub the other one and soon I felt the cinder down near the inner enbthuo, and made ready to takeit out. '"Let it alone and keep at the well eye," shouted the doctorp ro fem. I did so for a minute longer, and, looking in a small glass be gave me, I found the offender on my oheek. Since then I have tried it many times and have advised others, and I have sever known It to fail in one instance (unless it was sharp as ,pieee of steel, or something that out into the ball and requir...

Boring for Gas. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
Boring for Gas. --++-- Boring for gas is exactly like boring for oil, in all its workings ; but the after opera tions of pumping and packing, as in the case of some oil wells to raise the oil, are not necessary in gas wells. [I the gas is there, it will come up of its own free will and accaord, and come with a rush, blowing tools and everything else out of the well before it. In deed, gas men would often be as glad to keep their treasure down as oil men are to get theirs up. Toe great pressure at which it is confined in the earth, and the corresponding force with which it escapes from the well, make it somewhat hard to manage or control. This pressure is enormous, as high as live hundred pounds to the square inch in some cases where it has been gauged. In the great McGugin well, which was not gauged, the pressure is estimated to have reached eight hundred pounds to the equare inch. Any attempt to confine the gas in this well. for the purpose of measuring it would doubtless have resu...
Miscellaneous. Men Who Eat Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
f)f)ece[laneoue. MeA WhVo Eat Fire. she earliest mention of fire enters in Eng. land is to be found in Sir Henry Walton'. correspondence under date of June 8, 1633. Ile says; 8 "There is a strange thing to be seen in London fo:: a couple of pence which I know not whether I should call a piece of art or nature. It is an Englishman, like socle where he had learned to eat fire as familiarly as ever I saw any eat oaken, even whole glow. ing brands, which he will crash with his teeth and swallow. I believe he hath been hard famished in the Terra del ucgo, on thebs south of the M igellen Strait." Evelyn. in his diary, under date of Oct. 8, :1622, gives a graphic account of the remark able fents of another fire-eater, who created a great sensation in his day: I tooke leave of my Lo?y Sunderland, who was going to Paris to my lord, now ambassador there. She made me stay to dinner at Leicester ouseo, and afterwards sent for Rtichardson, the famous fire-eater. lHe devoured brimstone on glowing...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
CRICKET. Qnite a number of Freemasons journeyed from here on Sunday last, to the special service held in the Temperance Hall, Echuca; and a most enjoyable time was spent, but, unfortunately on the drive home, a pelting rain vas en countered, and late at night the various parties arrived well drenched with the storm. The service was an unqualified success. The Timmering Cricket Club tried conclusions with our boys on Saturday last in Kyabram, and a very good game resulted. The home captain (DMr Edis) winning the toss sent his opponents to the wicket, and although the fielding of the home team was scarcely up to the mark, the total of the Timmering team only reached 48. The Kyabram team was unfortunate in losing such men as Adams and Clements for ducks, and John and Jas. Allan for 3 and 6 respec tively ; but the obstinate stand made by P. Guinan, who played sterling cricket, DoBoos and R. Haslem (although the former of these two should have been dismissed by an easy catch lost by Lowr...
TATURA RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
TATURA RACES. Our wish, expressed last, week, that our race cluib might be favoured with a clear sky above and good turf beneath, was carried out to the full on Saturday last. A heavy shower during the pre ceding night made oeie or two feel anxious for the morrow, but their fears were soon dispelled. Never, perhaps, has our little course been in better order. The rain had laid the dust, for the day at least, antd the ground was in that firm springy condition which horses as well as those who have to foot it revel in. Taken altogether, the meeting was as successful as tlhe day was auspicious. Our racing officials are about as hard working a body of gentlemen as one could wish for, and much of the success of the meetiig wais due to the efforts of the secretary ( Mr. Vaughan), the judge (Mr Minter), the starter (Mr Iogan), the time-keeper (Mr Cussen), and the stewards (Messrs Hloganl, Ryan, Curts, Morrissey, and Murray.) Of course it woulld have been -atu improvemtlent had there been a...

Milk as a Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
Milk acrs a . (ootd. " It is a mistake,"ezys the London IIospi. tal, " to look upon milk as a beverage. It is a liq tid food, and though it qaeonabe thirst t tihe moment, it makes it more in. tuseo after it has been some time in the s t otnr an.l its diestiJn has commeneod. IHealthy infants who receive a sufiaienoy of milk olflen ary for long psriods, to the be. wilderment and distress of the mothoers and nurses, simply bicnuse they are thirsty, and in many cases w'hre inligestion is eaused by weelkneos or inlulicieney of the gantrio juice, the child would be greatly bonefited by a drink of water."
A Question Of Etiquette. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
A Question Of Etiquette. At Ahmedabab it is the custom that when native government officers have to present themelves boefore their European superiors they remove their country shoes butoru entering the house or ollice. If they, how ever, have a pair of English boots on they can approach without being put to any trouble. Itecently some Hindoo omllials, to avoid the indignity of presenting themselves in their bare feet, bought a pair of English boots, and each wore the boots in turn as ha went up to be presented to the governor at a levee. There was great fun oaused by the officials running hither and thither to take their turn with the pair of boots, and often they put on the right and left boots indisori minately.
Japanese Industrial Art. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
Japanese Industrial Art. By W. Blackburn Harto. The eyes of the world are upon Japan. No other nation in the world is at preLcnt attracting anch general atlention. Tuo fact is, of coulse, not that the Japanese have Paldenlygnmade great and unprecedented strides in every department of art and life- i though their progress of recent years in tle march of clvillsation has been remarkable- I but that western nations have suddenly ] awnakened to the fact of their existnce. Japanese art and customs have remained un changed for centuries, but they were hedged in by conservatism and autocracy and little was known of them. Of recent years the people have begun to assert themselves; the I national pulse has quickened into amazing activity, and under judicious government commerce has been encouraged and directed into now channels; Ohristianity and modern civilisation have been tacitly ad. initted into the kingdom, and Japan has talen a prominent position among the natious of the earth.

The Fool Who Makes a Fortune. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
The Fool Who Makes a Fortune. Every day we meet men who, while seem. ing hopekssly dull and stupid, having none of the kn.wloJge which is considered indis. per.nable to intelkctual life, are yet succees loul in business. It is evi.;nt that, whatever else they lack, torla is the abil.ty to do jJat what circutmsuanced demand of theut.
