Sick Doss in Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Sick Doss In Hospital. AX INTERVIEW "WITH THEIB HOUSE SURGEON. A minute's -walk from West Brompton there is a curious, interesting place. Seen from the road it is only a little yard, which leads to a blacksmith's workshop. Sat close as the workshop stands to the gates, it is by no means easy to get across to it, for the Vulcans round the smithy fire are guarded by a host of mighty protectors. No sooner does a stranger set foot across the entrance than oat jamp, on the right and on the left, before and behind, a roaring army of every imaginable breed of dogs, from the great blood-eyed retriever down to the tiniest terriers. They are, however, each and all safely chained up, and their bark is no doubt worse than their bite would be, since they are all convalescent patients at Mr. Bignold's Dog and Horse Tnfirmaiy, which have been brought out to take the air and amuse them selves as best they can. 'Have you many out-patients, Mr. Big nold ?' asked our representative of the experienced ...

Barrel-Making. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Barrel-Making. Barrels are now being made of hard and soft wood, each alternative stave being' of the soft variety and slightly thicker than the hard wood stave. The edges of the staves aie cut square, and when placed together to form the barrel, the outsidea are even, and there is a Y-shaped crack between each stave from top to bottom. In this arrangment the operation of driving the hoops forces the edges of the hard staves into the soft ones until the cracks are closed, and the extra, thickness of the latter causes its inner edges to lay over those of the hard wood staves, thus ma.Tring the joint doubly secure.

Teetulpa, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Teetnlpa, FBOM " PENCIL IN THE " KAPUNDA HEKALD." | What generally happens in connection with * I gold digging in Sonth Australia is happen ing now at Toetulpa, lor the discovery of which two prospectors were handsomely re warded. Ill the latter end of.1886 the field was rushed by thousands of men. For several months people thought there was to be another Bsndigo or California in oar North-East. Villages-churches-grogshops sprang up in the district, telegraph and poBt offices were established, and a newspaper office and a bank were opened. South Australia's Teetulpa was talked of all over the Southern Hemisphere. "Now a friend writes, "now Teetulpa is as good as dead, at the hearts of the workers have been dead for some time. Oce cause is the profitable work at the silverfielda and the Barrier; another is a bad example set by the numerous mining companies who started to do wonders in the gold reefs, but who now, just when they are beginning tc try the ground, have stopped work becau...

Foreign Languages. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Foreign Languages. There lingers m my memory a page in a delightful book wherein the author says that to learn a new language is to have a new life opened up to us; it is to know new people, to recognise new modes of thought, new attitudes of mind, new phases of character; it is to see things with larger, ' other eyes,' and to look at men and facts from another standpoint, to be, as it were, translated into another phase of being, and to learn many things hitherto undreamed of in our narrower philosophy. Upon the principle that half a loaf is better than no bread, we may be very grateful for transla tors ; but translators can by no means produce the same effect upon the mind as though we read the classics in the original. While acknowledging the large debt of gratitude we owe to the painstaking labor and love of translators, we have only to take some fami liar passage from one of our own poets, and turn it into the Tery best prose of which we are capable, in order to appreciate how ...

VARIETIES. Electricity. ITS APPLICATION IN THE ART OF HEALING— THE ACTION OF THE ELECTRIC CURRENT UPON THE BODY—How IT CAN BE MADE TO ALLEVIATE PAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

VARIETIES. Electricity. ITS APPLICATION IN TTTW ABT OP HEAUNO THE ACTION OP NRA ELECTEIC CTTBBENT UPON TTTP: BODY-How IT CAN BE MADE TO ALLEVIATE PAIN. The large assembly-room of the Lane Medical college was crowded to hear Dr. J. O- HircMelder lecture upon " Electricity in Medicine." The speaker began his discourse by referring to the oft-repeated assertion that there has been no real advancement in medi cal science since the days of Hippocrates, and that with all our vaunted progress we are no better able to combat disease than our fore fathers were. The doctor regarded this charge as absurd, and referred to the subject of the evening's discourse as the best answer that could be made. Electricity, in its application to tbe cure of disease, is a discovery of the last few years. The mysterious power was appreciated by the ancient Romans, who would plunge their feet into tubs of water containing elec tric eels to cure the gout. The first step in the direction of frictional electricit...

SKETCHES. SOSLEH SLATE GIRLS. THEIE LIVES AND THEIE CHABACIBBISIIC®. SOXTDANI AND CIBCASSIANS JS EGYPTIAN HOUSE HOIiDS-HOW THEY HDD 'I'HK LOOKED FOB VBXSCE CHASUXNO. NOTWITHSTANDING {he best-meant efforts of philanthropists at home, and of the exeeutive on the spot, slavery still flourishes in the Bast with much the same vigor that it did 100 years ago, says a recent LondoD news paper. The public slave marts are closed, and a dhow or two now and again falls into the hands of a cruiser, but the villages of the equator continue to be depopulated, the harems have their full complement of unpaid menials, and the traders grow rich at the same, if not at a quicker, rate than formerly. And no one with any knowledge of the models of life of the Modem can doubt that as long as the creed of Islam exists, so long will slavery be perpetuated in spite of Christianity. Manumission is by no means an unmixed blessing, and the slave homes and refuges so called are useless, if not worse. A compari so...

ART & LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

ART & LITERATURE. R. D. Blackmore, author of " Lorna Doone,' varies his literary work by running about the biggest market garden in England. Mr. Walter Besant is off to Italy for a veil earned rest. No man in .London works harder than the famous novelist. He is at work at eight, and sticks close to his desk until lunch. TTm Palestine exploration work brings him down to town in the afternoons, and after dinner he would take another trick at the wheel. Mr. Besant, like Anthony Trollope, is no believer in waits for inspiration. He turns out his 'copy' with marvellous re gularity. Macaulay's ' Lays of Ancient Rome' were presented to Messrs. Longman on the mere condition that they would be brought out-so little did the author think of them. A small edition was printed which was bought up eagerly, and finding how popular they were likely to be the firm gave them back to Macaulay, then Mr. Macaulay. Longmans have published themever since byarrangement; Lord Macaulay and his heirs m...

POPULAR SCIENCE. Notes on Pearls and Mother of Pearl Shell. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

POPULAR SCIENCE. Notes on Pearls and Mother of Pearl Sbell. [BY MOEWE.] Pearls, one of the rarest and most valuable products oi the sea, the real secret of whose formation was for so great a length, of time merely a matter of conjecture, are produced within the shells of many bivalves, and more especially in those of the Pearl Mussel, be - longing to the family of Mollusca, and popularly called the Pearl Oyster. Pliny has given expression to the ancient belief con cerning them, which was, that they were drops cf rain or dew, which, falling into the shell of the mussel, were converted by some peculiar power of the animal into a substance similar to that of which it forms its shell. How the drop of rain or dew could traverse the depths of the ocean and finally obtain a lodgment in the shell of the oyster is more than we can understand, and more than the ancients condescended to explain. The Pearl Mussel (Aviceula Margaritiferm), has a soft body contained in an integument termed the 'm...

Emerson and Carlyle. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Emerson and Carlyle. Mr. Edward Emereon, of Concord, only son of the late R. W. Emerson, recently read (says the Athmasum) to an invited com pany at his mother's residence a lengthy paper ' On the Domestic Life of Ralph Waldo Emerson.* It has been read to some friends at the house of his cousin, Dr. Emerson, in New York, and it is regarded by some of the philosopher's intimate friends as the finest account yet given of him. It will probably be printed for private circulation. Mr. Edward Emerson says that when his father was near his end he pointed to a portrait of Carlyle, and said with fervour, " That is my man !"

Mrs. Brown Potter. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Mrs. Brown Potter. Of Mrs. Brown Potter, the American pro fessional beauty who recently following in the stepB of her English rival, Mrs. Langtry, adopted the stage as. a profession, the S. Argonaut says:-Her beauty is undisputed, She is a woman's beauty rather than a man's, being of that pure, delicate, fragile type which appeals to women most strongly. Her hair is a crown of glory, as no less a person than St. Paul has said a woman's hair should be. It is that rich, -vital, live hair, -warm of colour, and every individual hair seems to leap out from her head and assert itself. She has accomplished that artful looseness of knot which conceals the strength of its pinning, that is the study of Hie many, but learned by few. If Hie word * stylish' had not been debased to utter uselessness it would be the word to apply to Mrs. Potter. But one must skirmish around it now, and say that she is original, characteristic, unique perhaps, and modish. All of which the obnoxious word meant in it...

Football Moles. BT " SPHEROID." The first match of the season was played at Petersburg on {Saturday, 17th uut, be tween a team representing Petersburg and the Dawson Club. The weather was all that could be desired with the exception of a strong breeze blowing from the North West. The scene of the contest was a piece of vacant land lying in the West end of the town. The Petersburg captain won the toss and elected to kick with the wind towards South goal, and play was started shortly be fore three o'clock with the wind at tiieir backs. The yellow and blacks soon had the Dawsonions in difficulties and daring the greater part of the first quarter the ball re mained in the vicinity of the Southern goal. The play of the red and whites was however at this period of the game as good as their opponents' although the latter succeeded in securing two goals. At the ringing of the bell the teams changed ends bnt even with the favoring zephyrs the visitors could not kick goals, although they had ...

A Visit to Port Pirie. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Visit to Port Pirie. FROM THE BROKEN HIIX " AEGUS. Just now Port Pirie is an object of interest to the merchants of Sydney, the inhabitants of Broken HiU, and the Barrier generally and of some disquietude to the chaml>er of Com merce, Adelaide, and the' patriotic gentle men who hold with them in their rather one Bided ideas of national justice. Therefore, it may not be without some interest to many of Gur readers, to note the impressions of a recent visit to what some local optimist has termed the front gate of the Barrier. After Petersburg has been passed on thesea ward journey, the country opens out into wide stretching wheat-fields, clothed just now in tender green, but evidently in wantVof what farmers call a two-inch fall of rain. These continue through the ample Northern Areas and with little intermission until the pleasant town of Gladstone is passed. Next comes Crystal Brook, which would probably not belie its name, if there were any water to look crystal in it. But just ...

YATINA, June 19. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

YATINA, Jane 19. The Tains we are having are timely and welcome. An entertainment was held here last night in the P.M. chapel,. Mr E. Rudland, from Petersburg, gave an exhibition of his skill as a ventriloquist. Owing to the inclemency of the weather the attendance was very meagre, but despite this the audience ft as appreciative and frequently greeted the performer with applause. Mr Rudland, who comes before the pnblic as an amateur, evidently has a special aptitude for this class of entertainment' Excitable and disturbed railway passaogers, the troubles of a school board beadle, and the irrepressible dolls, were well represented by means of a flexible voice, and with little facial disturbance, Excepting a little hesitancy in makinghis introductory remarks due from nervousness, Mr Rudland's per formance ran smoothly enough. I think he should easily, and with success, extend his area of operations. The visitors from Petersburg. Mr and Miss Ingiis, contributed largely to the evening'...

He stated that he had large experience of the hospitals of £iurope, and said that the best regulated hospitals in settled communities, were nothing more or less than hotbed* of disease, and he for one would crawl out to a ditch and lie down and take his chance before he would enter an hospital as a patient.
