The Growing Malady of the Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894

The Growing Malady of the Day. Dr William Erb, the famous psychologist of the University of Heidelberg, has just delivered, on the occasion of the anniversary of that institution, a lecture dealing with the question wby growing nervousness is one of the features of our century. According to a report given by the "Daily News," Proeessor Erbsaid: "As the nervoussystemrepresents the basis of the whole vital energy, it is natural that all the events of life must affect it, and the great revolutions in political and economical, in social and religious life, and in scientifio and artistic aims, could not fail to have a strong influence on the mind and brain of man. The most intense and common forms of nervousness are hysterics-which is also increasing among the male sex-hypo chondrie, and, above all, neurasthenia. No organic or anatomic change in the nervouns system has been proved by those diseases. They only represent abnormal conditions of the mind and brain. Neurasthenia is a disease ...

The Bathing Question in Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894

The Bathing Question in Wales. A Welsh correspondent writes to St. James' Budget": The "bathing question" at the North Wales seaside resorts is assuming sorious proportions, and the question of the dises. tablishment of the man-bather has quite superseded that of the diseetablishment of the Welsh Church. No longer do people ask if the sexes should bathe together, but whether men should be allowed to bathe at all. There have arisen in this part of the country some new lady prophets, who apparently have discovered that the waters of the seas were crested especially for woman. These prophets have brought charges against the inferior sex that the men's bathing vans almost monopolise the sands, that when in the water men encroach on the limited space allotted to the other sex, that when not bathing they hover in crowds on the narrow strip of beach grudgingly conceded to the ladies' machines, and that while disporting himself in the ocean the male bather is allowed to encumber him. self w...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. The many Australian friends of Mef . W. Anson will learn with interest that he was to appear in his eminently succeasful character of Eccles, in Caste, before aLondon audienoe on 5th February. Mr Hare had, according to papers to hand, determined to revive MNr Roberiec's suncessful comedy at the Garrick Theatre on the date mentioned. In London Mr Anson will have to face comparisons with the late Mr George Honey, who played Ecclee when Caste was iret produed by the Bancrofts, and aleowith thelate Mr David James, who succeeded to the part in 1880, when the piece was revived by Mr Hare. Mr Honey is credited with having invented all the business of the part, and it sneed tobe a frequent boast of his how he held the attention of the audience for over three minetes, whilst he was engaged in the simple operation of filling and lighting his pipe. Should aIr Anson be as successful with Eccles-of which we here have little doubt as with hir part in Mr Hare's recent prode. tio...

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894

GENERAL EXTRACTS, The Matabeleland despatches state that Colonel-Goold Adams has captured and shot a notorious witch-doctor. The witch-doctor had visited the kraals in the vicinity of Shiloh, and carried off many, women and children. In one instance a woman who fell into his hands was mur dered in the most horrib!e manner. Her hands and feet were first bound together, and the doctor then picked out her eves with needles. She was afterwards thrown into the Khami River, where she was torn to pieces by crocodiles. On the hearing of this atrocity. Colonel Goold Adams ordered the arrest of the witch doctor and the victim's husband, and they were both tried for murder, and con demned to be shot. The other women and children seized by the witch-doctor were set at liberty. An American critic thus describes the effect of Patti's singing:--" Patti was singing 'Home, Sweet Home.' There was a breathless silence throughout that vast audience as those sweet. pure, liquid tones floated through the...

Dreamt He Was Pope. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894

Dreamt He Was Pope. The story of Dean Stanley's dream of being elected Pope is told briefly in MrProthero's "Life," but it is repeated at greater length by "A.K.H.B." in "Longman's Mesga zine." The writer has heard Dean Stanley tell it in this form: " When I learned that I had been elected Pope, I was in great perplexity. Not at all whether I should accept or not-I had no dif1iculty about that-but what name I abhould take. I thought of several, but I could not please myself. Hugh Pearson could not help me. So I thought I would go down to the Athen:eum and consult Jacobson, Bishop of Cheater. Do any of yon know Jacobson? Well, if you do, you would now that he is the man that every. body goes to in perplexity: the most courteous of men. ie said, ' I should take it as a great compliment if you would take my name, William.' Why not? Somehow it would not do. So I thought I should go away to Rome, and see about things there: Forthwith, with the rapidity of a dream, I found myself drawing ...

When youpay a visit toyour wife's sick room don't think it best to talk in a loud, high voice. It is commonly supposed to cheer an invalid, but it never does. 2. Don't wear your thickest and most creaking boots, or, if you do, don't walkabout the roomthe whole time. 3. Don't think it necessary to poke and stoke the fire every time you enter the sick room. The servant will see to it, and will not knock down the fireirons so often. 4. If your wife has bronchitis or a weak sheet, don't stand ten feet from 'the bedside while talking to her. 5. Don't ex amine every wardrobe door and window fastening toseeif they are sound, or beoin rattling and tapping them to see what is wrong. They will hold on for the present. 6. If you knock a chair down, don't "confound" it immoderately. It will stand up quite well without. 7. If your wife seems to have no appetite, don't sug...

ZIF reaOidfoir4d gouiVr , AND REEDY CR4F. TTSIES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 16Sg4 Gold Mining. GOLD-MINING seems to be coming more and more into prominence every day. We can hardly open the daily papers without noticing accounts of finds re corded. While some of the finds are reported to b'e of a payable nature, others are set down to be fabulously rich; and, it does appear as if the good old days, which the pioneers of gold-mining in these colonies experi enced, are coming again. From Wes tern Australia, South Australia, New South Wales, and Victoria the cry comes - Gold ! Gold ! The most pleasing ferture to Victorians is, that our colony. is to the fore in these dis coveries. A few years back gold mining, in fact all kinds of.mining was, in many places, almost at a standstill. But now we find unusual activity being displayed in order to develop our mineral resources. It is evident that during the land boom period a consi derable amount of money was diverted from mi...

Can Cows be Educated. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894

Can Cows be Educated. o- Is there such a thing as eucating cows to be rapid milkers? And can all cows be educated thus? When a boy the writer worked on a dairy farm, the proprietor of which had the reputation of being a very rapid milker. He broke in a number of heifers each jear, and alwars milked these himself. His claim was that it was this early training largely that made the difference in the time required for milking. His method was simply to begin milking us soon as seated, and continue rapidly and unin terruptedly until all the milk was drawn from the udder, and to do no stripping. The last part of the milk was sometimes drawn by press. intg from the upper p?art of the udder down ward, upon first oue side of the udder, and then the other with one hand, drawing the milk from the corresponding teats with the other. With some cows not even this was necessary. He claimed that the habit oif gisving down milk rapidly and completely with no retention of the strippiogl, was eadly fo...

The report recently to band remarks:-" When we stop to consider that one out of every seven persons dies of tuberculosis, and that perhaps the greatest source of infectionis the fleh and milk of tuberculosis cattle, the importance of an early diagnosis impreses itself upon us. Itisstatedby various uthrities that the majorit of the deaths of infants in the cities is causedby tuberculosis, as a result of being fed on tuberculous milk." The tuberculin test was applied to the entire herd of cattle, numbering it head, on the Station Farm.

A Historical Manuscript. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894

A Historical Manuscript. One of the most remarkable finds made by the Historical Manuscripts Commission, among the family papers of the Duke of Portland at Welbeck Abbey, is a series of letters from King Charles II., mostly written from St. Germsins in 1609, to varionus persons whose names are written in oipher, the key to which has not been discovered. They were found folded and packed together in a little leather box and by their appearance it would seem that they had been sent over for delivery, but had never been used. As the Comuessioners observe, they "are mostly of a kind to which the adhe. rents of the Stuarts must have been accustomed, and the promises contained in which were not always com. pletely performed." In brief, they present the young prince in the character of a begging-letter writer on a rather extensive scale. Some thirty correspondents seem to have been addressed by him in the month of August of that year alone. The following will serve as a sample: "1649, 31st...
