THE FOOD OF PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 26 July 1889

THE FOOD OF PLANTS. By Dn. AxnnEr WISoex. Axoso the curiosities of the plant world are to be ranked some very common members of the vegetable kingdom.. Sir John .Lubbock has long been enforcing upon us the duty of knowing truly and well the living things by which we are surrounded in our every-day life. Truth to tell, science has much to learn regarding even the most comnon of animals and plants, and some of the most perplexing problems of life and mind arise when we attempt to study familiar objects in an exlet fashion. But even if we go outside the more technical phases of botanical science, we may discovier in the history of common plants much to interest us and much to admire. Take for instance, the common mushroom, the toadstool, the yellow fungi that grow on trees, or any other member of the iongus tribe. Weo see a marked difference ire tween these organisms and the ordinary plants of the roadside and field, in that the fiungi are not green. They may be variously eoloured inde...

To be gli sure it sally lacked a new coat of -paint, and in the window blinds, creaking loosely upon their sp rusty hinges, were faded, and broken in places.

A LOST TAIL. Is a corner of the pantry, In Mr. Jerry's house, There lived a quiet family With dear old Mother Mouse.

OUR WEAR AND TEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 26 July 1889

OUR WEAR AND TEAR. Be Dlt. A\nDEW WeISOy. Ix a recent article the question of food in re. lation to the work of the body was duly dis cussed. We then noted that the reason why food was required at all by the living animal (or plant) was found in tie fact that all life implies work, while all work, in turn, implies waste. This waste demands repair, and, as a consequence, in our food we find the materials wherewith our franecs are renewed from day to day. It is necesosary, however, that we should regard the question of bodily wear and tear a little more closely. Of what does the waste materials of the frame consist --taking the case of man as e rlnha pthe most illustrative and most interest. ing of all examples. The waste materials of the body comprise such substlances as water, car bonic acid gas, ammonia, minerals, organic particles (the worn-out " cells " of the tissues), and a nitrogenous substance-urec. To this list we may add the iemtt of heat, seeing that as much heat is perpet...

FOREBODING DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 26 July 1889

FOREBODING DREAnMS. There are some queer statements on record connected with foreboding dreams. Lord Littleton, it is said, was warned of his death by a dream. Brand, in his "Popular Anti quities," tells of a seaman who suffered much from superstitious fears. When on the nlight watch, he would see sights and hear noises in the rigging and the deep-which kept hint in a perpetual fever of alarmt. One day the poor fellow imagined the Evil One visited him, and told him that he had only three days to live. His messnmtes all laughed at him. The next day he told them the areh fiend had paid him a second visit, announcing s repetition of the melancholy tidin?s. Ilia friends expostn lated with him, but it was no use. Now, the morning of the fatal day happened to be stormy, andl the dreamer, with others, was sent aloft Beforn he ascended lie bade his messmoates fare well, telling them he had received a third warning, and ihe was eonfident he should be dead before night. lie ascended into the ...

A YANKEE VIEW OF VENICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 26 July 1889

A YANKEE YIEW OF ENICE. IT is quite natural for travellers in foreign lands to compare objects seen there with similar ones at home, though, in fact, these comparisons are. sometimes amusing, as in the following anecdote: An American traveller, while in Venice, chanced to meet a fellow-countryman, and en tered into conversation. The stronger was from the Mlisisssipi river bottoms. " What do you think of Venice l" asked our American friend. "Well, I don't reckon I oughter express my opinion now, for I didn't git there till after the overflow, an' hain't had a chance to see the town; but, as the water 'pears to be on the stand-still, I reckon it'll begin to go down pretty soon ; but I 'low that when she starts, she'll go down right smart." "My gracious, man, this is not an over flow! " "Then it's about as lively a freshet as ever I seed. In our country, when we have to paddle round the streets in canoes, we call it a pretty good overflow." "You don't understand. This is Venice and the...

FUNNY TRANSLATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 26 July 1889

FUNNY TRANSLATIONS. OsF account of the late Germea Emperor's funeral, writes David Ker in Ilarper'o Weekly, stated thatthe sermon was preached on a text taken from " the Book of Jacob "-a hitherto unknowni portion of Holy Writ-the real words being the "Epistle of James" (Jakob). An English translation of a German novel rendered Ich babe cinen Gast bekommen (1 have got a guest) by "I have become a ghost." Another trans formed " food for reptiles" into "the Diet of Worms." In a French version of "Guy Man nering," the phrase "a stickit minister" (unsuccessful preacher) figured as un ministre assassind. Nor are the titles of books a less fruitful field of mistranslation than their con tents. A Vienna translation of George Eliot's " Felix Holt, the Radical," was entitled "Felix; Hold the Rascal Il" The play of "Love's Last Shift " was reproduced in Paris s "La Demniure Chemise de l'Amour." Rob Roy still figures in Russia as Bob the King, "eoy " having been confused with " Roi." A similar...
