THE USES OF FERNS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

THE USES OF FERNS. Those who have been fairly inoculated with the love of ferns, will be interested to learn that many species of those beautiful plants are used not only for food and medicine, but for economic purposes. As food, they are chiefly useful to the aboriginal inhabitants of some foreign countries. In the larger of the exotic fems — the tree-like species — the inner part of the stem, stipes or rhizoma — corresponding to what would be the pith in other plants — and some times the whole of the tuberous rhizoma, is eaten generally after being boiled. In India, some of the natives boil the pods of one species of fern, and eat it with shrimp-curry. Amongst ourselves, two of the most beautiful species — the Bracken, and Male Fern — are said to have been sometimes used as ingredients in the manufacture of beer ; whilst one foreign species (Aspidium fragrans) is actually stated to have been used for tea. Maidenhair used at one time to furnish a principle ingredient for a syrup ca...

THE TROUBLE BETWEEN CHILI AND BOLIVIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

THE TROUBLE BETWEEN CHILI AND BOLIVIA. Despatches from New York to the Bulletin (S.F.) dated March 4th, state : — The intelligence that Chili is block ading the Bolivian nitvain ports and that the mines will be seized, is con firmed by the Chilian Consul here, who states that, though he has received no official information, private despatches lias been sent to him to the effect that there would be no immediate shipments of nitrate in consequence of war be tween the two countries. This gives Peru, which has almost monopolised this article, an opportunity to rise the price of the product to any point she may please. The Peruvian trade amounts to about £2,800,000 per annum, aud the Bolivian to £60,000,000.— Tlie latest dates from Lima are to the 26th February, and at that time ;iny change in the position of affairs between Chili nnd Bolivia was in favour of the former. Mejil loues, Caracoles, and Antofogasta are held by the Chilenos, and at Cobija, the only remaining port of Bolivia, a...

THE HEIRS OF BRIGHAM YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

THE HEIRS OF BRIGHAM YOUNG. The New York Times states that a con test is about to open in the law courts of Utah respecting the property of Brigham Young. The Times says: — Like many auother foolish man, Brig ham Young thought that he had a right during his lifetime to dispose of his property as he would. In other words, he believed that his last testament would express and represent his 'will.' Of course, this could not be true. It never is true when a man leaves to his heirs a great deal of property ; and Brigham was ' well fixed,' as they say in Utah. As prophet, seer, and reve lator, Brigham Young was more thoroughly an autocrat than any man who was his contemporary. During his lifetime his will was absolute law, whatever it may be now. So implicit was the confidence reposed in the prophet that the revenues of the Church and community over which he ruled were held by him as if they were his own. If there was any separation of his personal income from the income of the Church and...

WRECK OF THE BRITISH TROOPSHIP CLYDE [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

WRECK OF THE BRITISH TROOPSHIP CLYDE. This was one of the fine ships carrying troops and supplies to the scene of war in South Africa. She had reached Gape Town, and was proceeding to the Natal Coast, having on board forces consisting of 15 officers and 534 volunteers, being drafts from other regiments in England to make up the strength of the 24th Regiment, the whole under the com mand of Colonel Davis, of the Grena dier Guards. As she steamed out of docks, friendly parting cheers, given with English heartiness, passed between the soldiers and a large crowd of spec tators on the pier ; those who exchanged the farewell token little dreaming per haps that their ship was fated for anything like a -wreck, and that their tons upon tons of ammunition was destined, not for the breasts of the enemy, but for the quiet bottom of the ocean. After being jnst about 12 hours from port, as it appeared from the information brought to Simon's Town, h!k; was enveloped in a fqg, and, us the officer o...

THE PHILOSOPHY OF RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

THE PHILOSOPHY QF~RAGES. It is Btrauge (observes the Saturday Review) that nobody has yet inspired to write a book on the Philosophy of. Rages. Why should society be invaded at one season by an unconquerable desire to bo on \frlieal-fii' ' ultAXps ' ait . another to smite the croquet-bail1; now to flock to lectures of litejulurftlaowtj} give its mind to .concerted .cookery? Like most other socid 'phenomena, it is probable' that rages are the result of \ery complex causes acting., with different degrees of force on different people. There must always be o kernel of real enthusiasm, out of.. which the movement begins to' grow, and it must be supposed that even rinking and acrostic guessing were first invented l-y people w.ho. thoroughly believed in them. This enthusiasm is the fever which infects others predisposed in a hundred different ways — by idleness, by the ' immense ennui' of modem life, by the passion of emulation, or by that ex ceptionally modern invention, the desire of sim...

We have heard that the managers of one co operative association have resolved to carry the war into the enemy's country, and are organising an interesting expo sure of the favourite' system of business adopted by West End tradesmen, in the course of which it will be shown how ' tips ' to servants influence orders : how, with their connivance, accounts are cooked and inferior goods charged at the highest prices ; how for many 3'ears past the whole system has been a standing encouragement to waste, extra vagance, and dishonesty on the part of ...

A WHALE HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 24 May 1879

A WHALE HUNT. Anchored in the harbour of Jcretik, west of the entrance to the Bay of Koa, in Russian Lapland, lay Captain Foyn's steamer Spes and Fides, with a large blue whale and a sulphur Iwttoni (Balcenoptera sibbaldii) made fast to the side of the vessel. The whale, was killed on the previous evening (10th August), just outside the Bay of Eina, in the Gulf of Motka, on the south side of Kubatscliij (Fisher Island) ; and as it was the first whale I had ever seen shot, T sat me down, when all hands had turned in, to write this account of how it was killed. The celebi-ated whaler, Captain Svend Foyn, had kindly placed at my disposal the largest of his steamers, in order to examiue certain parts of the coast of Murman, giving me at the same time the right to take with me a full outfit for whaling, and to keep any captures for zoological purposes. We had left Karabella in the after noon in a stiff north-west breeze, with a high sea on. The rolling of the small craft made it very unp...

LORD DUFFERIN AND LORD AUGUSTUS LOFTUS.

On the same day Lord ' Augustus Loftus and his family quitted St. Petersburg. This change, it is generally believed liere, represented a desh'e on the part of the British Government for a correspond ing change in the relations between Great Britain and Russia — a. change from that active opposition which chiefly marked the time of Lord. A. Loftus to more mutual forbearance and consideration in harmony with 'what are supposed to be the personal charac teristics of our new Ambassador. Even the N-ovoe Vrcmya, one of the bitterest anti-English journals, , recognises the promising fact, though it still shows its teeth in asserting the motives for the change. It remarks ' that the recall of Lord A. Loftus and Sir Henry Lay ard and the appoiu...
