The Household. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884

The Household. A TOWEL folded several times and dipped in hot water and quickly wrung, and then applied over the seat of the pain in toothache or neuralgia, will generally afford prompt relief. Headaches almost always yield to the simultaneous applica- tion of hot water to the feet and the back of the neck. Common baking soda is the best of all remedies in case of scalds and burns. It may be used on the surface of the burned place dry or wet. When applied promptly, the sense of relief is magical. It seems to withdraw the heat and with it the pain, and the healing process soon commences. It is the best application for eruptions, caused by poisonous ivy and other poisonous plants, as also for bites and stings of insects. Here is a splendid remedy for eonghs or colds :-Put into a good-sized basin two perfectly fresh eggs, in their unbroken shells (see that the shells are clean), squeeze over them the juice of two large, or three small lemons, first removing the rind, then slice the pul...

The Execution of J. Cordini. HE DIES PROTESTTNG HIS INNOCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884

The Execution of J. Cordini. HE DIES PBOTESTTNG HIS INNOCENCE.   The N.S.W. executioner commonly known in Sydney as "Nosey Bob," from the fact that he has no   nose, carried out the death sentence at Deniliquin in the case of Joseph Cordini, alias Joseph Gordon, for the murder of the hawker, George Mizon, on the Hay-road, on October 10 last. During the 14 days respite the condemmed man was very submissive and quiet, and paid great attention to the ministra- tions of the Rev. Father Hanley, who attended him. He, however, all along denied his guilt, and in his last moments strongly protested his innocence of the crime; but it is not known, and will, perhaps,   never be known, whether he made any confession to the priest of the Roman Catholic Church to which Cordini belonged. At the hour appointed, the con- demmed man emerged from his cell, accompanied by his spiritual adviser, who read the prayers of the church in a solemn and impressive manner. ...

OPEN COLUMN. "CHILDREN OF THE SOIL." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884

OPEN COLUMN. LETTERS to tho Editor must he conched 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.] "CHILDREN OP THE SOIL." To THE EDITOR. DEAR SIR,-I- noticed an article in Saturday's TIMES, which, though no doubt intended to convey a few import- ant suggestions upon the matter of allowing natives to wander about town I in a state of semi-nudity, has, by some means best known to the writer, been worked up solely into a combination of cruel denunciations of the people whose former home wc now occupy, and who, previous to our coining among them, were some of the happiest mortals under the sun. The moral to be derived from the reproachful computation of this philanthropical scribe is that if the natives are allowed to continue in their present state of dress simplicity the sensitive organs of our Christian in- habitants will be entirely shocked. The suggestio...

Wit & Humour. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 12 September 1884

Wit & Humour. A soldier .always goes to war with his Kit. Thieves are religious , people-being all shakers. The Brisbane Parliament meets in the middle of Ju-lie. The Giraffee has a tongue 17 inches long. What a splendid curtain lecturer. It was while John Davies was a black- smith, that he considered himself a man of metal. We've all seen a Kent hop, but you should see colonial beer trying to make a man walk. Gum-arabic comes from the Soudan. - We can all now anderstand why the Mahdi sticks to his project. A burglar who, towards midnight, em- braced the opportunity for a raid, found himself hugged by a policeman. A Melbourne undertaker is insolvent. This is a- dead failure. It's a fishmonger who's generally alive to his own interests. At Normanton, the other day, a boy got a heavy sentence for stealing a suit of clothes. It's something to lose a suit at Normanton. They may in England call our frozen beef "Kangaroo," but if you do buy a quarter of Australian, you don't get f...

DARING RAILWAY ROBBERY [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

DARING BALLWAY BOBBEBY Dr. Albert Mayermoss, of Minneapolis, Minn., has been in New York on a business trip. He carried £700 abont his person and stopped at the Astor House. On June 17, he put £60 in his fob pocket, and the rest in an inside vest pocket, and pinned it in, and started for the West Shore train. On the ferry-boat from New York, he saw two men who were in the hotel when he arranged his money. The men also took West Shore train. When the train neared Kingston, a man wearing a flannel shirt squeezed into the Beat occupied by the doctor, and forced a conversation with him. Then a man a few seats back asked the fellow occupying the seat with the doctor, what time it was, and he said that he had no watch. Mr. Mayermoss told him the hour. Then the man in the back seat announced that he and his father wer cattle-buyers, and that they had been out the night before in New York seeing the sights and that "the old man" had been fleeced out of £60 by the funnist trick ever seen.

Anti-English Book in Paris. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Anti-English Book in Paris. The Fans correspondent of the Pilot recently gave some striking extracts from a late anti English book published in France, .which has attracted great attention. Mr. James Stephens, the ex-Head Centre, writes about it as follows to the JV. F. World: "A very remarkable book entitled'Les Malheurs de John Bull ' has been published by one of the well-known firms of Paris, and is creating some sensation in official and other circles, lt purports being a prophesy of John Bull's coming desola- tion. The nero of the volume is an enterprising Frenchman called Maxime Jean, who from being a pirate becomes emperor of the seas, and with the aid of a powerful fleet plays such havoc with England's forces on land and sea, that after a long and desperate struggle the flag that braved a thousand years thc battle and the breeze, meets with irreparable disaster, and Ireland and all the colonies are lost for ever to the British Empire. The volume is brimful of sarcasm at tbe ...

A Fierce Dog Fight. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

A Fierce Dog Fight. At Providence, E. I., on May 24, there was a desperate dog-fight, for JË100, between Snowball and Molly. Both weighed 221bs. Snowball got the first hold by the ear, and threw Molly the first fall, and had it her way for 7 min. or 8 min. Then Molly got on her feet, and began fighting in good earnest, while Snowball was fighting her off on the nose. The handler of Snowball caught up the bitch before she had made a fair turn, and was immediately ordered to put her down, which he did ; presently she made a tura, and her hand- ler caught her again. After sponging her he took her across to shove her, and on his return to his own corner he stopped midway of the pit, and when the timekeeper said make ready, instead of waiting for the words "let go," he delivered his bitch and followed her up, which would have lost him the battle if the referee had given it against him. Instead of giving the fight against bim, as he might have done, he ordered bim to take the next scratch...

Triumphs of Surgery. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Triumphs of Surgery. The gleam of light which has shed some radiancy over the gloominess of cancer comes from surgery. It may be said of the surgery of the present day that better results are obtained from the surgical treatment of cancer than was probably the case in any former age. Some operations are now being practised which hitherto were not considered justifiable, owing to the want of success which followed their performance. Others have lately been introduced, the practica- bility of which has proved the wisdom of their conception. Sufferers from cancer, who formerly would not have been relieved, are in the present day benefiting from the application of the prin- ciples of scientific surgery. Tears of life-some years at least-and the mitigation of much phy- sical and mental suffering fall to the lot of surgeons to confer. Even the stomach, which in the male after a certain age commonly becomes the seat of cancer, has been dealt with, and a portion of it removed which was dise...

DYNAMITE SCARE IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

DYNAMITE SCARE Di LONDON. Having been thwarted in their attempts to blow up railway stations, Ac., the heads of the dynamite party in Paris have projected a means of blowing up London with impunity. They have Recured the services of a thorough scientist and »ronaut, who has perfected a system whereby a number of daring adventurers will cross the Channel in balloons, sail over the city of London, and throw out huge packages of dynamite in every direction. That the scheme if decided on will not fail for vant of des- perate men need not be said. An Irishman, named George Johnson, otherwise Macdonnell, was remanded at Ely, on Monday, on his own confes- sion of being an accomplice in the dynamite out- rages in London. He applied at the Ely police station for a ticket to admit him to the workhouse for a nights lodging, and among the placards hang- ing up in the station was one offering £2000 reward for the apprehension of the persons concerned in the dynamite outrages at the London railwa...

DYNAMITING AN EMPEROR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

DYNAMITING AN EMPEROR. The German papers gives a very circumstantial account of a alleged plot to murder the Emperor during his stay at Wiesbaden. It is stated that a woman has been arrested at Elberfeld with a quantity of explosive substance in her possession. Some time ago, it appears, the police were warned of the starting from America of a person bringing to Germany four trunks Containing explosives. All the ports were watched, but nothing was discovered until the woman arrived last week at Bremen, travelling by rail to Elberfeld, where she was arrested. It is said that she intended to carry out the attempt at Wiesbaden, and that in consequence the Emperor will not go there this year. It is further reported from Berlin that extraordinary measures were taken for the German Emperor's safety on his recent journey to Ems, the railway authorities being ordered carefully to examine the baggage of all travellers, and have no luggage of any sort about their station while the imperial tr...

On Fri- day, at the magistrate's clerk's office, Uxbridge, Caroline Perry, 17, domestic servant, was charged on her own confession with wilfully murdering Lottie Marian Scott, aged one year and eleven months, daughter of Air.
