THE AULD SMIDDY END. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE AUJ7D SMIDDY END. Oil ! the auld emiddy end, where, in youth's happy day, A merry band o' bairnies wad gather at their play ; I mind the happy faces, and the hours we wad spend, Wi' the bools aud the peeries, at the auld smiddy end. Against the battered gable were mony or a' thines — I Auld ploughs that wanted couters, new wheels that wanted rings, A pair o' broken harrows that for years had lain to mend. There was ineikle claething riven at the auld smiddy end. Oil ! the fun and frolio, and the mischief that we wrought ; There was lums to set alow, there was battles to be fought, Aud jury courts to baud when some coward laddie hen'd And gat his buttons scarted at the auld smiddy end. We never thought o' pairtin' at the hour o' gloainin' grey ; The fun was aye beginnin' when the daylight was away. When hedin' time cam' roun', ilka inither brawly kenn'd She wad find her truant laddie at the auld smiddy cud. And in winter we wad gather roun' the bleezin' smiddy hearth, While block...

THE ACTIVE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE ACTIVE MAN. The active man is about forty years of age. He is round rather than stout, full coloured rather than pale, wears beard and moustaches of dark brown hair, and has a remarkably white and shiny forehead. His face is radiant, his clothes are radiant, his snecch is radiant, his legs are dazzling. Yon can no inore be conscious of his presence and insensible of his legs than yon can shut up your attention from tlis cornet in a band of three'instruments. As he stands at the corner talking to a friend, his legs seem to be 011 the point of running away from his body, and dash- 1 ing down the four ways at once. These legs are never for a moment still. He poises 011 his toes, thrusts the heel of the right foot into tlie hollow of the left, and then the heed of the left into the hollow of the right. He waggles liis knees, juts his hips, turns his toes in, turns his toes out, bends both legs to tlie left, bends both legs to tlie right, pats the ground with the ball of the right fo...

THE FIFTH JUDGE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

The Fifth Judge Bill. Of the arguments that have been urged in the Legislative Council against the clause added in the Assembly to the Fifth Judge Bill, there is force in two. In the first place, it is true that the, question of making attorneys Judges is connected with the wider question of the amalgamation of the two branches of the profession, or rather of their nan- 1 separation by law. This is a point on which there has long been much differ ence of opinion both inside the pro fession and out of it. It is a question that deserves a fair consideration, and wherever it is decided against the legal separation, the argument against ap pointing attorneys as Judges fails, because attorneys are or may in that case be pleaders in court. As a matter of fact, in those colonics like New Zealand and South Australia, where the branches of the profession are not legally separated, they tend to become so in practice ; for of two partners in the same firm one attends wholly, or chiefly, to the...

DOMESTIC DESPOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

DOMESTIC DESPOTS. The paternal autocrat of the household supplies the grit in the wheels of the domestic machinery. The tempestuous outbreaks and gusty impulses of an imperious head of the house move one to marvel by what strange law of nature the sunny side of the cloth is so often reserved for the special edification of the home circle. Hegel parried the proverb that no man is a hero to his own vdlet-dc-chambrc, with the answer that it was because the valet was a valet, not because the hero was not a hero. But the fierce light of home criticism is apt to discover the clay leet which sup port the apparently gilded idol. Break the crust of social formalism and you will, in no few cases, find that a sweet reasonableness is assumed only to meet the uncompromising necessities of pro fessional claims or fashionable inter course. The Bayard of the park or bank-parlour is the Bismarck of his home. Something has gone wrong iu the day's duties ; doting Themis lias ridi culed his juridical l...

THE LATE OUTRAGE ON MR. MONK. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

The Late Outrage on Mr. Monk. The recent bloodthirsty and daring attempt to murder Mr. Monk, of the Wombat sawmills, will surely arouse the Government to some practical effort to vindicate the law, and to protect life and jiroperty in the north-eastern dis trict. This last outrage has aroused the righteous anger of the public not alone against the ruffians who show such a vicious sjmipatby with the out laws, but against the authorities who permit the sympathisers to be at large. Only on the 16th inst. the acting-head of the Government refused to liberate any of the men then in the Beechwortli gaol. His action was approved of by the acquiescence of the community, yet within a week of that promise the whole of the accused are set free. For the action of the stipendary bench neither the Government nor the police are responsible ; but ' both are res ponsible for the men (or at least some of them) not being at once re-arrested. As for Mr. Foster, the police magistrate, his conduct was in...

THE "PIOUS" HUMBUG. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE 'PIOUS' HUMBUG. Theue are few of us who have not noticed that meek individual who is to be constantly seen prowling about the streets of London, in suburban neigh bourhoods, iu the country, ifcc. He appears to be always dressed in the sane garments, which consist of a soiled black frock coat, seedy trousers, and slovenly boots. His hat is a tall one, with a decided appearance of having been ' ironed' a few dozen times. He disdains the ordinary collar, such as most mortals wear, and, instead, dons the clergyman's cravat with all the ordinary impudence imaginable. He is clean shaved, for, according to his idea, a clean shave makes his appearance more impressive. Watch him as he plods slowly along, bis eyes fixed, ap parently, on nothing in particular. His thoughts are of a religious — we beg pardon! — his thoughts are as to his next move. You cannot fail to see him now and again in an omnibus or a train, where he will take extraordi nary pains to impress upon the occu pants of the...

SULPHUR AS A CURE FOR DIPHTHERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

SULPHUR AS A CURE FOR DIPHTHERIA. A simple cure for diphtheria is said to exist in the application of sulphur to the part affected by the disease. I11 Canada, and we believe also in Ceylon, the following simple remedy has been adopted with successful results ; and already tried on a small scale in Eng land. A teaspoonful of ' flour of brimstone,' in a wine-glassful of water, carefully mixed till it is completely amalgamated, may lie used as a gargle if the patient is strong enough to adopt this remedy. In extreme caser,, where the disease has extended too far to admit of the use of the gargle, the in halation of the fumes of burning brim stone, or holding the head in such a way as to allow tlieni to penetrate to the throat, is recommended. A Cana dian surgeon, indeed, has adopted the extreme course of talcing a small quan tity of the powdered sulphur in a quill and puffing it into the throat. The effect of the sulphur is to kill the fungus, which by spreading over the throat, would ...

ENCOUNTER WITH A LION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

ENCOUNTER WITH A HON. Some few years ago . (says the New York Tribune) a Zulu hunter, hearing a young British officer speak somewhat - lightly of native prowess, offered to give liim a specimen of it by killing single handed a huge lion which infested the neighbourhood. The challenge was accepted, aud the brave fellow set out upon his dangerous errand, the officer and several of his comrades following at a distance; Having drawn the beast from his lair, the hunter wounded him with a well -flung spear, and instantly fell flat 011 the ground beneath his huge shield or rhinoceros hide, which covered his whole body like the lid of a dish. The lion, having vainly expended his fury upon it, at length drew back a few paces. Instantly the shield rose again, a second lance struck him, and his furious rush encountered only the im penetrable buckler. Foiled again, the lion crouched close beside his ambushed enemy, as if meditating a siege ; but the wily savage raised the further end of the shi...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

South Australia. The Mount Ganibier and Rivoli Bay railway will be opened by the Governor on the 16th May. The Commissioner of Crown Lands, speaking to a deputation from Yorke's Peninsula on Wednesday, expressed himself as against the credit system in regard to selections. Monsieur Duperret, who has been keeping a small wine shop in Adelaide, and was formerly an officer in the French army, has come into a fortune of £300,000. At a meeting held on Saturday it was agreed to form a South Australian Land Mortgage Banking Company, and a committee was formed to Issue a pros pectus and make the necessary arrange ments to float the company. The Adelaide Register, in an article on the Ocean Mail Service on Saturday, says that in the light of the present disposition of the Victorian Govern ment, the true policy of South Aus tralia is to look to the P. aud O. Com pany alone. Mr. Booth ley, engineer, has brought an action for £1000 against the Glenelg Railway, for wrongful dismissal. The case i...

YOUNG RUSSIAN ARISTOCRATS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

YOUNG RUSSIAN ARISTO CRATS. The younger generation of Russian aristocrats presents a pitiful sight indaed. A cold-blooded, cynical materialism, scarcely varnished over with a super ficial education and elegauce of manners, treating honour, devotion to principles, and political convictions, as so many ' humbugs,' unworthy of a true child of the nineteenth century — such is the main feature of the present generation of Russian aristocrats. It is perfectly astonishing in what measure all moral feeling has died out among them. The worst slander and the highest praise seem to have lost all their .significance in the leading circles of Russian society. The social standing of each individual is determined by a series of petty charac teristics, his good breeding, his appear ance, his wealth, sometimes his way of tying his cravat or putting 011 his gloves — all these uudelinable nonentities which, put together, form the outward shape of a jcune homine comme il fuut. From such things as tbese...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. MR. BLACKMAN'S MEMORANDUM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. Mr. Blackman's Memorandum, Me. Blackman's memorandum in sup port of an application for an addi tional staff' of twenty-two clerks in the conditional sales branch of the Lands Department, affords a striking illustration of the complexity of the laud law. Before 1861, the complaint was that there was nothinu but delav and disappointment in the administra tion of the public estate;. Nobody who wanted land could get it without wait ing until his patience was exhausted, and with it, ill many cases, bis means of taking up land and working it to his own profit. Greater simplicity was demanded ; and free selection before survey was introduced as simplicity itself. What are the facts 1 Here is an officer who is probably as well able as anyone in the country to describe the working of the system ; and he shows that after years of experience, after various Ministers in succession have had charge of the law, after re peated efforts to overtake the business of the department...

The Swiss Elixir. — Tonics are generall y unpalatable, but tlie famous cordial with which the mountaineers of Switzerland have almost from time immemorial recruited their physical strength when exhausted by fatigue, exposure, or sickness, is an exception to the rule. The ' Dew of the Alps,' a pure vegetable stimulant and restora tive, which for several centuries has [ been the standard remedy of the Swiss for indegestion, nervous debility, loss of appetite, aud mental, despondency, is indisputably one of the most delicious and genial preparations that ever tickled the taste of an epicure. The importa tion of the article into this market — for which we are indepted to Messrs. M. Moss and Co., sole representatves of the Geneva manufactures in Aus tralia — has met with signal favour, and the ' Dew of the Alps ' is likely to take the place of all the nauseous and far less efficacious tonics liithirto iu use. — Adv.

A great outcry is being raised against the filthy grabage around Mel bourne on which the cows feed aud from which the principal milk supply of the city is obtained. It is now clearly demonstrated that the outbreak of typhoid fever is attributable to this cause. William Blanch, clerk in the Sand hurst Saving's Bank, has been arrested for embezzlement. Good gold is being obtained at the new rush at Whipstick. The steamship Northumberland ar rived in Melbourne on Tuesday from London, after a passage of i7\ days, the fastest she has yet made.
