RAILWAY FREIGHT ON GRAVEL. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1883

RAILWAY FREIGHT ON GRAVEL, A DEPUTATION consisting of Mr. T. R. Smith. M.L.A.,and Messrs. J. T. Ryan, A. Turnbulli F. Leeds, F. Macintosh, and others, waited upon the Minister for Works on Friday, to aBlc for a reduction iu the rate charged by the Railway Department on gravel and metal between Emu Plains and Sydney. Mr. Smith said in support of the request that the quantity of gravel and metal carried on the railway between Emu Plains and Sydney during 1882 was G7,000 tons. The freight paid on the quantity was £11,542, and the cost to the Department was £8127. This left a profit to the railway of £8415, a sum equal to 81 per cent, on the working expenses; and he thought this was sufficient justifica tion for asking that a reduction in the freight should bo made. Mr. Copeland, in reply, said he could not see his way clear to grant the reduction, He had looked into this matter, and he thought it would be found that Mr. Smith's calculation was an erroneous one. Mr. Smith had in, calcul...

EXPERIMENTS IN HANGING. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1883

EXPERIMENTS IN HANGING. THE editor of tho American Medical Ledger lias devotod a long article to the Bubject of 'the sensations experienced by one on whom the capital sentence is inflicted by hanging. No man has, of course, returned from the ' dead; so that of such sensations we have till now Jmown littlo or nothing. But this is 110 longer the case. Doath by hanging is, we are assured, not at all unpleasant, but rather tlio contrary. If the neck is broken death is instantaneous. If the vertebral column is unbroken, death comes to the culprit in a state of coma. Tho conclusion is not imaginary, but derived from experi ments. A notorious character named " Ouss " Judsonhas been sentenced to doath on three different occasions ; but each time the hangman failed, cither from want of ability or for some peculiarity in the make of ; tho patient's neck, to carry out the sent ience, and tho man got off. It was evident his experience would form a supplement to Victor Hugo's " La Derni6re Nuit ...

MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1883

MARRIAGE. MABRIAGK, truly: and rightly considered, may doubtless be productive of great' happiness greater than it is; possible to obtain under any other, circumstances ; but it makes 'one shudder to think of the end of so many of the beautiful imaginings of the yoiuig and happy heart. I look round,the world, and grieve over tlio holiest tie that can exist; on earth, and this because people do not con tract it from motives sufficiently high. . It is or should bp, a bond to exist through eter nity, tliat complete union of souls so boautir fully typified in the Arabian belief that after death the married pair melt' into one angel. It is, on the contrai'y, frequently debased by a merely sensual union, or one of con venience or of gain. A gentleman marries becauso he is in want of a lady to rule his household,, to receive his friends, and in fact, be v a superior housekeeper. A. lady' leaves the cherished home and the love of her kindred, and all that lias been most doar to her, simply ...

THE MISSING LINK. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 March 1883

THE MISSING LINK. THE Home News gives tlio following inter esting account of a curious specimen of the human species recently brought to England by a Mr. Bock, and whose exhibition will most likely give rise to discussion on the Darwinian theory:-" This representative of the hairy people is of the female sex, be tween BIX and seven years of age, and is called Krao. It is assorted that she is one of a family captured in a jungle of Laos, the father having died of cholera in captivity, while the chief of the district in which the capture took place refused to allow the mother to leave the country. In addition to her hairy covering, the peculiarities that distinguish Krao from an ordinary human being are a double set of teeth in the upper jaw, the asserted presence in a rudimentary state of the gorilla tusk, the absence of cer tain muscles in the arms, and of the upper cartilage in the ear. The presumed exist ence of an extra rib and an additional joint in the vertebra) are. also held ...

It must bo so, for surely ho would not say what ho knew to bo false. I know that Aid. Cross has had the motions for Henry street before the Council and carricd them. One for aligning, and one for clearing, stumping, and forming; and one for 800 yards of gravel completed. Bo, therefore, it was by his motions that it was commenced and finished.
