ARTIFICIAL ALBUMEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
ARTIFICIAL ALBUMEN. The Vienna correspondent of the "Chronicle" saw Dr. Lilienfeld. the in ventor of artificial or synthetic albu men, a few weeks ago, and he gave him more interesting information regarding his great scientific feat. Dr. Lilienfeld is a young man, being only twenty-nine years of age. He is an Austrian Pole, but took his degree at Berlin University, where he worked at the Physiological Institute, under Pro fessor Du Bois Reymond, the renowned German physiologist, four years ago. Then Dr. Lilienfeld was already en gaged with his synthesis, and obtaining some good results. He showed me Dr. Reymond's testimonial on the subject. in which the learned professor says: "Lilienfeld has sensibly approached the synthesis of albumen. He has undoubt edly broken a path to a new epoch in physiological chemistry, and secured an everlasting name in that science." But at that time the method of his syn thesis was tedious, and the production of albumen was practicable only with difficu...
COREA AND CHRISTIANITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
COREA AND CHRISTIANITY. A letter from the Rev. Andrew Andrew Adamson, the missionary main tained in Corea by the Presbyterian Fellowship Union of Victoria, which has been received by the last mail by Mr William Wiehart, vice-president of the Union, contains some interesting parti culars relative to affairs political in that country. Mr Adamson writes: "A new Prefect has just arrived from Fusan, and that he is favorably disposed towards Christianity and missionaries will be seen from the following. Dr Underwood, in a letter introducing him to me, says: 'At his request I am giving the new Kamul (Prefect) of Fusan a letter of introduction. IHe states that he desires to be on friendly 'and intimate terms with you, and to be at liberty to consult you at times concerning affairs in Iusan. He says that he knows Chris tianity is good, but that some people profess it for the sake of doing wrong. and would like your help in discrimina ting between the true and false.' " "Exceedingly happy rel...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE NEW ECONOMICS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
CORRESPONDENCE. THE NEW ECONOMICS. TO THE EDITOR As one of your numerous readers, I was much pleased to notice in your issue of the 4th inst. some remnarks anent the " Labor Exchange " system of carrying on trade and commerce, by means of receipts instead of money. I have already given some little attention to the subject, and find that it is one worthy of the most earnest consideration, affecting as it does in a very appreciable manner the welfare, not only of such as may ally them selves with tie movement, but also all other mnlembers of a community in which the " deposit banks " or exchange markets operate. In fact, although I at first began to study the matter without any other thought than that it was one of the many futile attempts of labor to cope with some of the intrinsic evils con nected with our human lot-and which I had ahlays regarded us inevitable and irremediable, and notablly amongst these evils the fact that tile producer and worker have always been preyed upon by m...

BALLARAT REVISITED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
BALLARAT REVISITED. Fair city, lovelier grace than thieae, Neath Austral skies who can divine Or hail more glorious birth; Deck'd with a noble coronet. And gemmed with beauty richly set, Majestic in thy worth. Brave records of a patriot race, From times remote thine archives trace, Giants of Titan mould Herculean tasks of might displayed, Turning the forest to a glade, Like alchemists, to gold. Their genius, cunning, and device Where offered whole in sacrifice, Both strength of heart and mind, That generations unborn yet tMight, from their past, example get, To lesson still mankind. Here crowded mart and calm retreat Harmonious blend-the busy street The moving throng invites. While flora, clad in colors rare, With perfume fills the laden air. And charms with her delights. Breaks on our souls a classic pride, As statued forms on every side, Gaze mutely-looking down, Though Sphinx-like, silent: memory speaks Of ancient faith, and honor seeks, And glory and renown. Visions of holy them...
BISHOP STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
BISHOP STORIES. A Bishop said the other day, "The two things of which I am most tired. are 'The Church's One Foundation' and' cold chicken. The hymn seems always to be chosen wherever I go, and kind hostesses with quite extraordinary unanimity provide cold chicken for luncheon." There was once a prelate who always liked to have the same dish. I ishop Baring would write to a country vicar. "I)on't prepare anything extra for me: cold beef will do." He used to carry his own bag, annl was sometimes called "Charles Baring Cold Beef Car pet Bag." The late Bishop Thorold held a confirmation on a Friday in a parish where the vicar only gave him a fast-day fare. On expressing a hope to the Bishop that he could do without meat he said, "I see a tapioca pudding; that is what I like best for lunchcon."

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
SHEEE AOND THEE There are few mnore genial and cour teous men in public life than the present •speaker. But even he can lose his tem per sometimes. Witness the recent little altercation between him and the Mayor of Melbourne. Both parties have been subjected to a considerable amount of chaff since the occiurrence, but on the "Masonic" head it hath fallen more like the "gentle dew" than it has upon him who "wears the keys of Melbourne at his belt." In fact our worthy chief magis irate has a touch of autocracy about bim. Like the thistle of his native heath it is a case of "nemo me impune lacessit." Rie likes his own way, and when thwarted is apt to chafe. It Is a pity, however, that these little chafes and tempers of public men cannot be held in check a little better than they are. "Birds in their little nests agree," except in the case of an Intrusive cuckoo. Even dogs can keep quiet when there is serious business on hand, unless a fox terrier happens to be among the crowd. The peac...
THE PHONOGRAPH. HOW IT WAS DISCOVERED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE PHONOGRAPH. HOW IT WAS DISCOVERED. Scientific men themselves, like Saul, 'who, when out searching for his father's asses and found something yet more precious, have failed - for the time, at all events - in finding what they Niought, and by lucky accident have :alighted on something quite as valuable as that which they sought. The wonderful instrument the phono graph was really discovered by acci dent, Edison being then engaged in per fecting the telephone. He found a greater reward than he sought - the reward of application and skill. This is how it was, as told by one of the as sistants then with him: "Many years ago now, when Edison was still at Minlo Park, and working night and day for fame, he devoted months to perfecting the telephone, and undoubtedly did more than any other inventor to make it practical by intro ducing the carbon plate into the trans mitter. While experimenting on dia 'phragms for the telephone, Edison had constructed a number of small sheep skin drumhead...
