!o ':LThe Parson's.Leap:'' In the year,18503 at a point where two large o'ershadowing spurs of the Great Divid. ,.. ing Range meet, there once stood the camp of The Miners' Rest, with itslittle cluster of tents aiid huts nestling at the mountain's base, while the thifncolumns of.smoke which arose here and there on the mountain side, each betokened the presence of a miier's dwelling. Down this mountain a little rivu let, fed by numerous springs, made its way from cliffto "cliff, and, passing through the camp with many a winding turn, was lost to sight in the rocky hills that rose beyond. .. Tihe campncontained-but one shanty,; a low square building made of logs, and bearing upon its front the somewhat strange title of " Paradise," a name given it by Jim Boyd, the authority on all such matters in the ---camp. ,· n support-of this-title-he"had stated' that "if six nobblers of Sandy's whiskey didn't put a man in paradise, they put him as neaeto it as he' would ever get to be o.n this ea...

Scientific Notes [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 July 1887

Whale extract is recommended as an eco .nomical substitute' for, beef extract. A whale weigliiig'200 tons yields 5000 pounds of extract. Every pound of extract means 100 pints of soup. It has not the slightest oily of fishy taste. The lowest temperature that Mr. Wroblew ski has produced, by allowing liquified hy drogen to escape, is 211 deg. 0., or rbout 380 deg. F. At this temperature, he adds, neither gases nor liquids exist, but everything is solidified. The metals lose their electric resistance, and the current passes through matter without developing heat in it. The use of the gall of rattlesnakes is warmly urged by M. Koskicky, of Austria, as an antidote for snake bites. Mr. Kos kicky, who became acquainted with the antidote in Venezuela, declares it both in -expensive and effective, as well as instant aneous in its operation, cows and dogs in the last stage of the poison recovering im. mediately on the remedy being administered to them. The river thyme, which has been gener a...

A Fair Patient. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 July 1887

A.Fair Patient. BY M. GRANT. It was% a bitterly cold night in June, and the rain was dashin'g down in torrents. For'two drys this had been going on, and, from the as Spect of the weather, it looked like as if it.was going to keep the same for another two weeks. Congra-ulating myself for once that I was yet unknown to fame in the medical world, I took down my latest work on medicine, and, piling .a siovelful of coal on the fire, sat down to en joy the contents therein. I hadnot gotthrough the first page, however when the bell-rope was furiously attacked. With an unparliamentary ejeculation, I went into the hall, where I'met my mother struggling to close the door against the wind. "What is it ?"l -ask, placing my ample proportions against the oak. "I do not know; a little ragged urchin left this card, saying it was immediatp, and that somebody's arm was broken; but of course you will not think-of going, Donald?" she asked anxiously. "Hem I I rather think I'l have to," I say, reading t...
