Preserv tion of Severed Digits. Within a year there have been published some calf dozen cases of digits eev.rul and afterward reuuitel. Tnat more have been some failures counts for nothing. Tlurne have certainly been no reports of any uno pleasant results following tihe attempt. The public, too, are beginning to rteliso that the useful little member is sometimes needlessly sacrificed. Another ease can be added to those already publisohed, which presents one unusual fen. taure-the long time that elapsed before the severed end was adjusted to tie stump. A boy, while splitting wood, out off part of his right thumb. It dropped-to the-groondT and he ran into the house. The mother hunted up the father, who came to the barn, harnessed the horse, wrapped the piece of thumb and the stump up mn a rag and drove nearly three miles to the doctor. Fully an hour and a half elapsed before I saw him. I removed the bandage and found the thumb lying loosely in the bandage, and covered with sand and di...

A Clever Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894

A Clever Act. An Indian road officer was asked what was the oleverest act he ever knew an elephant to perform; and he said that once, when unload. ing some steel tubing from a ship, it was the elephant's task to carry the pipes by means of his trunk from one part of the wharf to another. The pipes had been oiled to pre. vent their rusting, and when tbe elephant took up one it Elipped from his grasp. lie tried it again wits the same result, and at last seemed to comprehend what the reason of all this was, for he shortly afterward pushed the pipe with his foot to where there was a heap of sand, and rolled it backward and forward. The sand, owing to the oil, adhered to the tube, and the elephant then put his trunk around it and carried it with ease. He did the same with the re. mainder without aid or suggestion from his mahout. " Gimme a peony ter git a oupper tea withi ' pleaded a red-nosed man of a whole sale grocer yesterday.

A CRICKETING HUMBIUG I remember Fred Spicer well. With all his faults he was a good fellow at heart, generous, good-natured, the truest of friends, and to those who knew him well his irresistible propen sity for bragging afforded a never-failing source of entertainment. t We were travelling together in the States, and in the course of our wanderings we stopped a week at Blankville, an out-of-the-way town down South. On the night of our arrival, the i chief topic of conversation in the smoking-room of the hotel was cricket in general and a certain masterin particular, wlhich was to take place on the following day between an eleven of Blank. ville sand a team from the neighbouring town ship of Dashburg.

Mr. and Mrs. Bowser. Mr. Bowser's Trouble With Shirts. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894

Mr. and Mrs. Bowser. Dl MHas. 1OWaWEB. Mr. Bowsor'a Trouble With Shirts. Wnnr Mr Dowser was courting me I, girl like, never noticed whether his shirt-bosome were white or black, or whether his collars were turned down at the ends or stood stiffly under his care., 4I admired hie nose and hair and eyes, and was in love with the shape of hie head and that was all sufficient. I supposed he wore clothes, and I supposed he had ahirts and collars, but as to who made them, what they coast or how they set was a mystery I never sought to solve. Mother had her eye on that young man, however. After looking him over two or three times she said to me : "Sarah, it you marry him you'll have trouble." " Why, mother 7" "There's no why about it. Iio's too par. tioular with his shirts and collars. If they don't set just so, he's as uneasy as a fish out of water. I cured your father, and in ten years got him so that he would rido out on Sunday with me with one of my stookings on for a collar, but you ca...

The secretary (Mr Viinughan) reported that the prize list had been adopted and published, and that the entries for the handicaps were better than they had ever been before, and that the Local Handicap nominations were extended to the 28th March, aind it is to bli hoped that all in the town will give in their names so as to have Tatura well re presented by her citizens.

A very sharp shower of rain, com bilted with a dark night, has a deterrent effect upon many of our church-goers ; but, spite of the weather, tlhe attendance at the Tatura Presbyterian Church on Sunday evening last could scarcely be called a poor one. The pretty little brick building, with it lofty roof, and well lighted by neat chanltieliers in a state of scrupulous cleanliness, presented ia cheerful appearance, though the walls were asomewhat bare, and there was no attempt at t decoration. The bell, which is full in tone, and can be heard all over the town, had scarcely finished ringing when we entered, just as the Rev. A. Chambuners rose to tnnounce the first hymn in the customary phraseology, handed down for centuries back, and inuilortalised. in the " Cottar's Saturday Night." Evidently the choir was not at its usual strength, but those present did t hemselves justice, and joined heartily in the singing of " O Lord of Heaven and' Ear...

Fijian Etiquette. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894

Fijian Etiquette.

One old gentleman came pretty often; he was, I soppose,a great swell among the Fijians, as he brought a couple of servanta with him on every occasion. It so happened, one day when he was dining with us, we had champagne; our friend took to it kindly, imbibing glass after glass with a gusto that it did one's heart good to see. The result may be imagined; he got very much excited, volunteered a dance, ete., and finally, when a party of us who were going ashore landed him, he would her nothing but our accompanying irim ...
