TRADE TROUBLES IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

TRADE TROUBLES IN ENGLAND. In the Bradford (ironworks) district the operatives have been very demonstrative, but the position of affairs has remained much the same. About 4,000 men are now on strike, and there is a disposition still to refuse to work until the whole of the em- ployers give way. The employers, on their side, seem equally determined not to sub- mit to the men's demands. Trade in the shipyards of both the Glyde and the Tyne and Wear districts is at the very lowest ebb and on all sides notices of reduction in wages and stoppage of works are seen. To add to the gloomy recital, some of the iron works are closing atu* the furnaces being blown out. The strike which was recently alluded to as imminent has now taken place in the East Worcestershire and South Staffordshire coal districts. About 16,000 colliers are employed throughout the dis- trict, and it is feared that all the hands will turn out. Already a large number have done so. The men are disatisfied with the arbitrat...

A New American Firm. SPLENDID NEW LINES OF AMERICAN MERCHANDISE. The running of the mail service between Sydney and San Francisco cannot he said to he irithout sub- stantial benefits to the colonies. During the last fewiyears the advent of American business men has lent a distinct impetmCto many branches of trade in Australia, and this fresh enterprise, having Unes of business specially adapted to colonial requirements, as they were under exactly similar circumstances' in the (States, have won, andi aro still winning, un- doubted successes right through the country.

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 19. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

FltlDATEArENINGyiSEPTEMBEE 19. Ouït telegrams this week have a spice of particular and peculiar interest at- tached to them which should ag once commend them to thc thoughtful con- sideration of our readers. We do not refer to the telegrams as a whole, hut to «that portiôntof th^m.in which reference is made to the ^business 'bf-^'tfie^Sleform Association's meeting held on Monday evening last. It was at our suggestion that our telegraphic correspondent wired back the gist of a telegram sent to one of the Adelaide dailies by Mr. Pater's j friends, and our reason for doing this is given in the fact of certain rumours having reached our eal's which sounded as though the Pater party had no par- ticular desire to keep to facts. With a keen desire to cany the point aimed at by them, whether by fair means or foul, they, having been defeated in a honest fight, cannot accept the situation in humility, but must have recourse to such a peculiar mode of procedure as send- ing telegrams to the me...

Two New and Important Lines. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Two New and Important Lines. During the last few months two very important lines of trade hare been opened in Sydney, with the most satisfactory results. The house throngh whose medium the lines referred to have been introduced to the Australian public, is that of Mr. J. J. Carran, Brickfield-hill, one of the oldest importers in Sydney. An opening has undoubtedly existed for another discription of tobacco, which would combine the very best material with the most competent manufacture. The brand of Gem tobacco which Mr. Cnrran has now placed before the public is Hidden Treasure, and for the time it has been before the Australian public there is no brand that has met with greater appreciation. Its popula- rity is based only on excellency ; no inferior leaf whatever is used in Hts manufacture, so that thc aroma is that of the genuine Virginian. The Aus- tralian public are likewise indebted to Mr. Curran for the importation on a large scalo of the Shanghai Company's teas, which are foun...

Important Line for Farmers and others. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Important Line for Farmers and others. There is, probably, no city in the world which suffered so long as Sydney for what may be described as a genuine, certain, and ready emporium for dairy and farm produce. And the loss was two-fold. The produce found in a big city with an enormous population, a most uncertain and unpayable market, and the consumer could never make sure of a reliable source of supply of fresh and good farming and dairy produce. The direct result of this has been a serious retarding, if not the crippling of inland development-the true source of national stability. After lengthy discussions in the presB, and while all serta of impracticable schemes were proposed, a number of practical minded men in the business set to work and formed a company, and the Sonth Coast and West Camden Co-operative Co. (Ld.), resulted. This company, which transacts its business ut the Commercial Stores, Sussex-street, Sydney, is the great medium of disposal between the farmer and the cons...

The palate, the nostrils, the windpipe and throat, Are all of them lined with this inner coat, Which through every part is made to extend Xungs, liver, and bowels, from end to end.

While it goes well with the outside skin, Ton may feel pretty snre all's right within ; For if anything nuts the inner skin ont Of order, it troubles the skin without.

HARD FACTS ABOUT THE DEAD, [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

HARD FACTS ABOUT THE DEAD, :Thete, vas a conference of scientists in London recently, to discuss the subject "of the' best means of disposing of the dead." There ; were two papers read. The first was by Mr. A. Wynter Blyth on "The Disposal of the Dead," and the second, by Mr. W. Eassie, C.E" on " Cremation." In the former paper, Mr. Blyth alluded to the various forms of dealing with human re- mains. Alluding to earth burial, he said : that if that plan was to be continued, he would suggest that one body should be buried in a grave at a minimum depth of six feet, that the use of vaults should be abolished, that no irremovable headstones or monuments ßhould be allowed, and that at the end of a certain number of years the land should revert to agricultural purposes. He concluded by suggesting that funerals should: take place between 4 and 8 a.m. Mr. Eassie, CE., the chairman of the Cremation Society, then read his paper on .. Cremation," in which he answered the objections which had be...

Popular Science Notes. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Populär Science Notes. IT is said that wheat kept sealed in an air-tight receptacle for some length of time will not germinate. The Lancet informs a correspondent that "the possibility, nay, the certainty, in many cases, of flies being a medium of infection, especially in warm climates, bas been repeatedly pointed oat, though perhaps the fact is not sufficiently borne in mind." According to the Journal de Medicine, of Brus- sels, if the normal temperature of mankind were 1000, that of a moderate smoker would be repre- sented by 1008, and the normal pulse under like circumstances would increase to 1180. The heart is overworked to just the extent represented by the latter figures. It is now known to medical science that diseases of the eyes and ears are frequently induced by decaying teeth. A serióos case of this kind, in which a partial loss of sight from cataract was traced to a diseased condition of the teeth, has just been reported to the Harveian Society of London. A French anato...

A cattle roundup camp on Frenchman creek Neb,'just over the Colorado line, was entirely Destroyed on Wednesday, May 28, by a . flood,' and eleven cowboys, belonging. in Colorado and Nebraska, were drowned.

Felton, William Carson, Ferguson, Lon Withèrbee, John Smith Patrick Lynch, Robert Fowler, Robert Reddy, J. Lindsen, with a roundup camp outfit, from Roundup District No. 10, of Colorado, arrived at Frenchman creek, Wednesday. Meeting other parties they joined forces and camped near " Cooper Camp."

Insurance for Squatters and Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Insurance for Squatters and Farmers. Ono of tue features of the very large business which tho Commercial Union Assurance Company is now conduct- ing is that of offering increased facilities for the insurance of colonial produce, either awaiting removal or in process of transmission from thc sheep's back to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, or London. For a considerable period of time a great deal of difficulty has been experienced by graziers in insuring their clip, except nt ridiculously high rates ; and it is a well-known fact that this mort reliable and in- fluential section of thc community have been treated with as much harshness or snspicion as the travelling huxstcr of of novelties located for a month or moro in the city. The Commercial Union Assurance Company, whose splendid new premises, at thc comor of Pitt and Bridge-streets, have just been completed, havo, however, ft branch specially devoted to the pastoral work, and insurances on our great staple product are now effected at...

Revolution in Medicine. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Revolution in Medicine. There's a revolution going forward in the medical profes- sion, and that is not the only profession which is beginning to feel the advancement of the general intelligence. The law, which as a profession, has been protected by a huge wall of doubtfully acquired rights, is daily losing its exclusiveness, and there are many lending men of the time who say our present form of administration will be charged to national courts of arbitration, where success or failure in a suit will not mean hopeless ruin. With regard to medicine, the very general support given by the public to quack doctors, has been all along an indication that a radical change was wanted in the medical profession. That the results of this dealing with quacks hos been pernicious to thc general welfare, is an undoubted fact; but the fact remains that the public required to be served in a way they were not being served. Medicine, as the general experience goes, has been a fearful tax on the human fa...

Country Money for City Lands. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Country Money for City Lands. In the coarse ot a few weeks the railway line, which con- necta Sydney with the wealthiest agricultural and miserai district in Australia, will be opened. That line is the one known far and wide as the Illawarra railway. It is a fact within the general knowledge that during the past ten years nearly £6,000,000 of good, solid money hos been in Tested in land and buildings on the old railway suburbs of Sydney. Huge areas of splendid land, which for years hod lain idle, have been divided and subdivided, and built upon, till now the metropolis of Sydney may be said to be joined right through her populóos suburbs to Faaramatta. Along the line there is a continuous growth of at least ten miles, and there is scarcely a foot between Homebush and Parra- matta that hos not been sold for building purposes, and which, in ten years more, will be a succession of thriving townships. And it can safely bc said with regard to these huge investments that there is hardly o...

The Best Wife of all. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Best Wife of all. THREE travellers mot in the Brander pass, By the bubbling Brander spring They shared their cake and their venison, And they talked of many a thing Of brooks, and song, and foreign lands, Of strange and wandering lives, And by and by, in softer tones. They spoke of their homes and wives. "I married the Linly o' Iiogan Brae," Said one with a lof ty air ; " There isna in a* the North conntree A honre wi' a better share Of gold and gear, and hill and loch. Of honses and farms to rent ; There's many a man has envied ma. And I'm mair than wed content." "Dream of a woman as bright as day," The second traveller said ; " Dream of a form of perfect grace, Of a noble face and head, Of eyes that are as bine os heaven. Of flowing nut-brown hair ; That is ray wife, and though not rich. Oh, she is wondrous fair." The third one said : " I havo a wife ; She is neither rich nor fair ; She has not gold, nor gear, nor land, Nor a wealth of nut-brown hair ; But oh! she loves me! an...
