IMPERIAL MILITARISM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

IMPERIAL MILITARISM. The Emperor of Germany is said to be ' pipeclay all over,' to use a soldier's phrase; and his palace resembles a military museum rather than a royal residence. Every room in it lias pictures of battles, portraits, busts, and statues of princes in uniform. In the eutrance-vestilmie figure two large ivimfmnc nrl.^1. 1,,'c \T.. charging the revolutionary rabble in 1848, when he whs prince, and just before that rabble compelled him to fly to London, disguised as a coachman, under the name of Muller. In the re ception-saloon, where stands a bronze statue of Frederick the Great, there are a number of shelves, some of which are covered with miniature models of cannon, rifles, and shells, and others with wooden statuettes, clad in the uniforms of almost every country in the world. It is in this suggestive chamber that his Majesty receives ambassadors and ministers. From the reception-chamber one passes into the flag-room, so called because the Prussian Guards have the p...

CELERY AS A CURE FOR RHEUMATISM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

CELERY AS A CURE FOR RHEUMATISM. Celery cooked is a very fine dish, both as nutriment and as a purifier of the blood. I will not enumerate the marvellous cures I have made with celery, for fear the medical men should attempt to worry me. Let me fear lessly say that rheumatism is impossible on such diet, and yet our medical men allowed rheumatism to kill in 1876 30,640 human beings — every case as unnecessary as a dirty face. Worse still, of the 30,481 registered as dying from heart disease, at least two-thirds of these are due, directly, more or less, to rheumatism and its ally, gout. What a trifle is smallpox, with its 2401 deaths, alongside au immense slayer of 20,000 human beings ; yet rheumatism, may be put aside for ever by simply obeying Nature's laws iu diet. Plainly, let me say, cold or damp never produces rheu matism, but simple developes it. The acid blood is tbe primary cause and the sustaining power of evil. While the blood is alkaline there can be no rheu matism, and eq...

MATCH-MAKING BUSYBODIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

MATCH-MAKING BUSYBODIES. The ^travelled Chinese philosopher who, by dint of travelling, became Gold smith's citizen of the world was fain to avow that ?ndthiiig - gave him sufch ? pleasure the wide world over as to see two young persons wno were uiiuxiciy enamoured of each other married. ?' Nature has, in some measure, formed me for a watch-maker. for it had given him a soul to sympathise with every mode of human happiness. This is tbe fair side of the match-making disposition. But there is another side, on which that disposition shows to less advantage ; for your match-maker is Bometimes a mere busybody, heedless of results, and intent only on the means — what Ilamlet called the fussy lord chamberlain, 'a rash intruding fool ' — one of the pack of fools who rush in where the, wiser fear to tread — a pack of officious meddlers, imperti nentf thick-skinned, and irrepressible. Often, it may be, this officiousness is too ridiculous to warrant grave invec tive. ? 'Quite, as often, perha...

ON THE NERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

ON THE NERVES. An interesting book might be. made out of the curiosities of nervousness from a contemporary standpoint. The elder Disraeli has somewhere a chapter on the subject ; but if our memory serves us correctly, his instances trench rather upon the hysterical conditions, the monomanias, the wild fanciful delusions of the disordered imagination, thau upon the prosaic feature of the dis temper. He instances men who could not bear the sight of old women, and fainted dead away if a grandmother showed herself : others who, if they heard a rat in the wall, took it for a ghost and got up and prayed fervently ; and such things. The present age furnishes more rational imaginings, born of the daily papei-s, emphasised by indigestion, and riveted by the surpris ing eloquence of the diurnal quidnuncs. For instance, there are plenty of people living at this moment who would warmly refuse to get into bed before looking under it to see that no man lay there. There are others who pass the ni...

EXTRAORDINARY EXHUMATION OF A CORPSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

EXTRAORDINARY EXHUMA TION OF A CORPSE. A strange affair happened at Linkin horne, Cornwall. A man named William Seymour, a miner, was found dead in Phoenix Mine. It was supposed he had died in a fit, and a verdict to that effect was returned at the coroner's inquest, j He was interred at tlie burial ground or Daney Uhapel. A neighbour or tlie deceased the next night dreamed that a gentleman in a carriage and pair had driven up to the house of the mother of the deceased said her son was not dead, but had been buried alive. This dream being noised abroad, the next night seven or eight men went to the graveyard, dug up the coffin, and carried it to a chapel. They unscrewed the coffin-lid, and there was the body of their comrade apparently still living and breathing. So convinced were they of this that they sat him up, and while some attempted to revive him by stimu lants and friction, others ran off to the nearest surgeon, two miles distant. The surgeon, Mr. Newsam, soon arrived, and e...

A MISSING WILL [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

A MISSING WILL. ' Lost, Stolen, or Strayed, the last Will and Testament of a deceased ? Royal Prince, late heir-presumptive to a Euro pean throne.' Such (says the Daily ?Telegraph) is the strange purport of in numerable paragraphs in Continental newspapers, rife with ingenious specula tiuu xeajjeuiiiug wie late ui a uocuuienTi alleged to have existed down to (he very day of Prince Henry of Orange's death, and to have contained the testa mentary dispositions of that august personage, who was one of the wealthiest gentlemen in Christendom. We can discover no ' 'trustworthy authority for the statement that such a will was ever drawn and signed ; but a story respect ing it is certainly current abroad, of 'wliich we reproduce only the Version obtaining most 'general credence. It is alleged that before leaving the Hague for Berlin in order to be married last autumn to the' Princess Marie von Hohenzollern Prince Henry of Orange made his will— a' likely enough act for a . mail. in his 58th ...

NARANDERA. - (From our Correspondent.) The races to be held on the Queen's Birth day, the programme of which haB already appeared, promise to be a complete success. The bill of fare has given general satisfaction, aud a number of owners have signified their intention of entering their steeds for the various events. Iu a sport-loving community like this thre is sure to be a large atnend ance of spectators. It seems certain that the efforts of tlie cnternrisinc nromoter. Mr. D. M. Piiuco, of the lliverina Hotel, will be well rewarded. Some scoundrel has, duriug the last couple of days, displayed his natural characteristics by laying a large number of poisoned baits on the Btreets of the town, the consequence being that several dogs have been destroyed. Mr. Buffrey, butcher, lost a splendid cattle dog on Tuesday, for which he had refused £30, and Mr. Essex, of Essex and Davis, butchers, had also a valuable cattle dog poisoned. Several collies aud canine pets are numbered with the dead,...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 17 May 1879

In Queensland things arc rather mixed as regards finances, and the Government seems to have got itself into a pretty considerable muddle. That, however, little concerns us, for we have our own troubles to bear, and mistakes to rectify. But :;s reference has been made to this coUiny in the proposed dealing of an important subject, we may be allowed to take for our topic the deficit in the Queensland revenue. This subject, however, we shall only view so far as it concerns ourselves. Telegrams have already informed our readers that there is a deficiency in the revenue of Queensland, which must be made up by vigorous retrenchment in expenditure aud increased taxation. . The difficulty is, as regards the first necessity, where to apply the pruninc knife, and to what extent ; and as to increasing the taxes, in what mode is it to be done ? There are two modes open to the financier for obtaining the revenue, The first is to resort to indirect taxation iu its mildest form, or else gratify th...
