Current Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The North Queensland Register — 10 August 1892

Current Notes. [BY JUVENIS]. I HAD fully intended to inflict my readers   this week, with a note on a most unsavory subject viz. — the various smells of Charters Towers, but the Council have held their monthly meeting, and I rejoice that all ne- cessity for such a note has been removed, for does not the Inspector of Nuisances report "matters generally to be as satisfactory as   possible, from a sanitary point of view." This is most pleasing intelligence, and noth- ing more is to be said on the subject, as our worthy city fathers have placed their official imprimatur on the report, by adopting it.   I have carefully committed this part of the report to memory, and now, as I hurry past certain warm corners in our modern Athens, with my breath held, I repeat the words of our Inspector: — " as satisfactory as pos- sible from a sanitary point of view," and feel moderately happy, though sometimes the words of the old rhyme will occur to me:— " It may...

"AUGUST FLOWER." There is a gentleman. Dyspepsia* at Maiden - on - the Hndson, K Y., named Captain A. G. Pareis, who has written us a letter in which it is evident that he has made up his mind concerning some things, and this is what he says: "I have used yonr preparation . called August Flower in my family for seven or eight years. It is con stantly in my house, and we consider it the best remedy for Indigestion, and Constipation we Indigestion, have ever used or known. My wife is troubled with Dyspepsia, and at times suffers very much after eating. The August Flower, however, relieves the difficulty. My wife frequently says to me when I am going to town, * We are oat of of August Constipation Flower, and 1 think yon had better get another bottle.' I am also troubled with Indigestion, and whenever I am, I take one or two teaspoofuls before eating, for a day or two, and all trouble is removed."

Peat Export Company, Ltd. : . (Brisbane Courier}. A little over two months ago there was delivered to the refigerating stores at Port Said of Messrs. Wills and Co., Limited, the first consignments of frozen meat ever received from Australia. The experiment of sending frozen meat to the land of the Pharoahs was inaugurated by Messrs. Wills and Co., of London and Liverpool, assisted by Messrs M'llwraith, M'Eacham, and Co., of London and Melbourne, and the meat was supplid by Messrs. Nelson and Sons, Limited, of New South Wales. From private advices received in Brisbane it is now clearly demonstrated that a new market ' or the sale of our surplus stock has ben opened up, and we may hope fully look f irward to the establishment in a short time of a direct trade with the Medi terranean ports, the central depot being at Port Said. There is a great dearth of animal food in Evgpt, and a large population which is gradually increasing in number and its standard of living, together with a dema...

It was a very pretty sigh*, and there must have been fully 200 juveniles on the floor, of which fully 100 appeared in fancy costumes. Our leading ladies provided the eatables and drinkables, and there was no stint of either. Ooe of the features of the evening was the arrival during the thick of the dancing of Father Christmas." This character was excellently sustained by a leading gentleman of the town. His make up was faultless, and when he arrived in the midst of the children the effect was beyond description. He carried a large bag well stocked with good things, which he distributed with a lavish hand. The most noticeable characters were: Misses Norma McGroarfcv, " Daisy Queen;" Emily Downey, " Erin;" Ida Fogg, "Gitana;" Maud Fogg, " Maritana;" Buby Kenny,...
