Essay on Political Economy. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 8 June 1894

JbJssay on Political Boon- j omy. , {Continual.) Money to ho of uao must bo used or got rid of. This ia not only applicable to an individual, but also to a com munity. Hero money is merely a plain article of merchandise. In small acts of exchange m'ney is necessary to bring buyer and seller together; but intercolonial money or trade is carried on chiefly by barter : goods are ex changed for goods. A community theretoro, nover keeps more money than it is necossary to do, and it is al oxpedient to got rid of all money, in excess 'fits wants. It sells its surplus money just the same as its sells any article of merchandise. Ar.y common object of use or valuocou tains collected in itself a myriad of dif ferent industries and agencies, each of whom constitute something to|t be result. When the product is brought to mar ket it has its valuo or price.

Plague in Hongkong. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 8 June 1894

Plague in Hongkong. The ravages of the plague in Hongkong are apparently ex tending The Board of Health has received a cable message from the authorities there to the effect that the epidemic is what is known as the bubonic plague. The period of incuba tion is eight days, and since May 10th 569 deaths have oc curred amongst the Chinese and coolies, but only five Euro peans, and,- those engaged in sanitary work, have been affec ted. From this it is evident that the visitation is becoming more severe, as in a cable mes sage to the Victorian Govern ment on Thursday it was an nounced that to that date 477 deaths had occurred, so that on Friday and Saturday 92 deaths, or 46 a day, were re corded. Since May 10th, a period of 23 days, the average death rate has been 25 a day. The bubonic plague is a pesti lential and very painful . lorm of buboes, and was not unknown in Europe in the middle ages.

The Cure for Lockjaw. WONDERFUL SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 12 June 1894

The Cure for Lockjaw. '' Wonderful Scientific Dis covery. Good Words describes the success which has attended ex periments conductec^witl^^flj soil, but often found in stable refuse'and river mud.' The evil is wrought by the bacillus en tering by accident into a scratch or open wound. There is also justification for believing that the poisoned arrows of certain anvnrto frihpc nrnnrtror] Iw J1.1 lowing the mud from swamps to drain on them, in reality owe their virulence to the presence of this microbe. The bacillus was first found in Professor Koch's laboratory by Kitasato, a Japanese student. The clue to the remedy was discovered during some experiments by Kitasato and Behring, who found that if some of the serum (the water of the blood) was iakfin from n. hnrsfi . which had been artificially rendered im mune to tetanus by inoculation) and introduced into the bodies of other animals which were suffering from the disease, they recovered, whilst animals which had not .undergone treatm...
