MR. GLADSTONE ON HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

MR. GLADSTONE ON HEROES. Mu. Gladstone in his lecture on Dr. Hook gave an admirable definition of' true moral heroism — only unfortunately the heroes whom human beings take. up and fondle in their rather 'capricious and sometimes very idolatrous fancies, -are but seldom moral hemes, and hardly ever heroes to us only. because they are moral heroes — and so it happens that very few of the favourite heroes of man kind would be co vo red by his definition. He says, with as much depth as truth, if he were speaking solely as a moralist, ' A hero is a man who must have ends beyond himself,' ends which 'cast him, a-s it were, out of himself,' and ' must pursue these ends by means which are honourable, the lawful means, otherwise he may degoneiate into a wild en thusiast. He must do this without distortion of disturbance of his nature as a man — because there are cases of men w ho. are heroes in great part, but who are so excessively given to certain ideas and objects of their own, that they...

A CINGALESE LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

A CINGALESE LEGEND. In many religious stories of the far, far East, great and startling resemblances are found to those of classic Greece and Rome, aud in not a few cases there occurs in Aryan tales a great similitude to some of our best known biblical anecdotes. Some of the coincidences deserve quoting as evidences in support of the position taken up bv some writers, who maintain that from the East came most of the stories that people in the West are acquainted with. Other tales that occur in the religious books of the Orientals arc worthy of deep study, if for only the sake, of com paring tlieni with some of the best known biblical narratives, for in tracing marks of resemblance or dissimilarity, one is enabled to determine whether their source is identical with that of sonic Hebrew tales which we find re corded in the Old Testament, or whether the similarity in plot and language of both is nothing more than a coin cidence. Among the Aryan tales that resemble in plot, style, and s...

Superstition pins much of its faith on charms. From time immemorial omulets have been supposed to foil evil spirits, and ward of pernicious iu fluences. The idea is as hollow and. groundless as that which attaches belief to witchcraft and sorcery. There is 110 real. talisman ip anything that .SsV.not : tangible and material. - Miracles - still exist, ,more in the wonders worked, than in the marvel itself, and in this category strictly belongs Wolfe's Schiedam Aro matic Schnapps. —Adv. ?

OPIUM AND ITS ABUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

OPIUM AND ITS ABUSES. Ik all ages men. have sought to alle viate or allay the pains of the body, or mental distress, by resorting to some drug possessing carminative or sedative properties. To some of the prepara tions that have been employed the name of stimulants liave been applied ; but it is hard to determine whether they do exert their qualities rather in exciting than soothing the physical and mental organisation, and therefore the term sedative ought to be used rather than that of stimulant when speaking of these preparations. Be this as it may, from the most ancient times the use of alcohol has been known, aud its aid in voked in refreshing the energies of the jaded mind and restoring a transient vigour to the tired body. In many forms has it beeu employed as a medi cine, and the same fatal results that accrued from the indulgent or ex cessive use of other powerful stimu lants have flown from the abuse of alcohol which is comprehended in the term vinous intoxication. Alcohol...

MILK AS A DISEASE CONDUCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

MILK AS A DISEASE CON DUCTOR, The Imperial Government have recently felt it necessary to take steps to guard against the spread of epidemics by the agency of tainted or impure milk. There is, perhaps, 110 article of diet by which disease can be so easily distri buted. Housekeeper know to their cost that it is extremely difficult to keep it pure and sweet, and scientific investigations have traced to this agency the origin of outbreaks of typhoid and other fevers. The coui-so pursued by the Imperial Government shows that the evil effects of the distribution of bad milk are definitely aud conclusively recognised. Hence we have taken oc casion to urge upon our local sanitary authorities the importance of guarding against the distribution of bad milk in Adelaide. Reference has only been made, however, to the consequences of the consumption of milk which has been infected through the want of cleanliness of tlie vendors, or by contact with persons suffering from disease. A report recently...

THE ZULU ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE ZULU ARMY. The Zulu army, which may be estimated | at from 40,000 to 50,000 men, is coin posed of the entire nation capable of bearing arms. The method employed in recruiting its ranks is as follows : — At short inter vals varying from two to five years, all the young men who have during that time attained the age of 14 or 15 years are formed into a regiment, which, after a year's probation, during which they are supposed to pass from boyhood and its duties to manhood, is placed at a military kraal or head-quarters. In some cases they are sent to an already existing kraal, which is the head quarters of a corps or regiment, of which they then become part ; in others, especially when the young regiment is numerous, they build a new military kraal. As the regiment grows old it generally has one or more regiments embodied with it, so that the young men may have the benefit of their elders' experience, and, when the latter gradually die out, may take their place aud keep up the name ...

THE PYRAMIDS AND AMERICAN RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 3 May 1879

THE PYRAMIDS AND AMERI CAN RAILWAY. A New York paper makes rather a ] surprising contrast between the Pyra- 1 mids of ancient Egypt and the railways of modern times. It will be observed that it leaves out of the comparison the lasting character of the work done. The Pyramids have existed for ? thous ands of years, and they still present a perfectness of masonry and durability, apart from the magnitude of construc tion, truly marvellous. Whether Ameri can or English railways will, at the lapse of say a thousand years, present a respectable appearance as to durability is a question, we will not decide, but we think they won't, we can easily judge for ourselves. The paper referred to speaks boast ingly as to tlie marvels of the Great Western Railway and other erections in the States, and after comparing them advantageously with similar structures in the old world, it makes a comparison between the architectural aud engineer ing marvels of ancient times and those of onr time, and decide...

When people have made up their minds to try a certain article they usually ask the tradesman they have been dealing with for it. Should he not have it in stock, they too often fail to push their enquiries further, and iu this way people use for years, inferior and comparatively dear articles, simply because their storekeeper for one reason or another keeps only such in stock. It will be found to everyone's interest to use the Oriental Tea Company's Packet Teas only, and not to be put off with bulk teas or inferior packet imitations. — Adv.
