Small-pox has ceased at Border- town. Several cases have been re- ported at the Orient Hotel, Sydney, and the honse has been strictly quarantined, though at present there is a difference of opinion existing as to the true nature of the disease.

OPEN COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884
OPEN COLUMN. LETTERS to the Editor must be couched in respectful and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case the writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a ".. guarantee of good, faith.] ; : ' DEAR SIR.-Byjaddressing you publicly in the columns of your journal on the above subject, I hope to attract the serious attention of the Government Resident, the heads of the Police Department, and all others whom it may concern, to a most iniquitous state of things existing up country. _ I allude to the now recognised systematic process of theiving that is being carried on continuously and success fully by the Chinese in almost every camp in the country. No single habitation in the mining districts is safe from the depreda- tions of these vilains ; and teamsters and travellers are sufferers to a considerable extent as well. The Police, are, seemingly, there does not seem to be the slightest attempt made by them or their superiors to meet the questio...
The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 29. "NUMBER ONE" AND COUNTRY POLTCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884
'he ^forlh j^nsfraliíiti. FMDAY EVENING, AUGUST 29. NUMBER ONE" AND COUNTRY POLTCE. A LETTER signed " Number One " in another column calls forth a few re- marks from ourselves. The writer using the well-known alias apparently takes a deep interest in placing his grievance in as showy a light as possible; but, in this instance, we thing a shade less peremptoriness might have been exer- cised. We have on various occasions previously had cause to grumble at the inconsistencies of members of the Police Department in the Northern Territory, but, nevertheless, do not consider the Department the butt for such abuse os "Number One'' throws in its face. That it is not a body of angelic clever- ness we^do not dispute. We aré com- pelled to admit that the country folks do suffer to an alarming extent through these pilfering devils ; and we are will- ing to echo the writer's sentiments with regard to the capture of thieves of this class, viz., that, although the thefts are in the knowledge of t...

THE REVISED OLD TESTAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884
THE EE VISED OLD TESTAMENT. The American and English committees: have almost finished then? labours in the Old Testament (says thc pErHorr FBER PBESS). It is expected that the revision will be published in tho. course of a few months. The revision is said to. have beea made with the sole purpose of placing the Bible in a position in which the people may understand every word as the- scholars understand thom, as the text stands in the original. To do this many of the beauties of expression have been sacrificed in order to give the true meaning of the original. The poetical forms and the archaisms will be retained to a larger extent than they were the New Testament. That fabulous beast the " unicorn, " will give place to the wild ox. "The River of Egypt " will be " the brook of Egypt. " "Thc Book of Jasper " will be the " Book of Upright." " The plain of Morah " will be " the rock of Morah." The children of Isarel did not borrow of the Egyptains what they never intended to return, out...

The Household. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 29 August 1884
The Household. Pallets will lay eggs through the winter if kept in a warm boase, and provided with crashed shells and good feed. Chopped cabbage and other green food is relished by fowls along with the grain Avoid crowding the poultry, and keep the nests, walls, etc., free from vermin. Save the spout tea-leaves for a ew days, then steep thom in a tin pail or pan for half an hour ; strain through a sieve, and use the tea for all varnised paints. It requires little elbow polish, as the tea acts as a strong detergent, cleansing the paint from all imparities and making it equal to new. It cleans windows and sashes and oilcloths ; indeed, any varnish surface is improved by its application. It washes window-panes and mirrows mach better than water and looking-glass frames. It will not do to wash unvarnished paints with it. A Very Fine Omelet-Stir a tablespoon- ful of flour into one-quarter tumbler of milk to a paste, and mix this with three-quarters of a tumbler- ful of boiling milk, addi...
