The Petersburg Times, ORROROO CHRONICLE AND HORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, AUG, 17, 1888. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

<£{« ^ttmbntQ CINUS, ORROROO CHRONICLE ANQHORTHERK ADVERTISER. FRIDAY; AUG, 17, 1888. I Yongala has been for fire months without a resident Justice of the Peace, and although from time to time urgent representations have been made to the Government, nothing has been done to afford the required convenience of a local magistrate. Memorials have been forwarded to the Attorney-General. Members of parliment have interviewed that gentleman, and the premier also, with a view to an appointment, and the Hon. J. V, O'Loghlin has brought the matter under the notice of the Legis lative Council, and yet nothing has been done beyond promises of remedial action. If there exists any private reason-which attaches itself to either of the representatives of this district in the House-for thisi procrastination, no language of a condemnatory character would be too strong to give expression to disapproval of the adoption of such a wrongful course by a Minister of the Crown. If such is the case...

VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

vm. When the Judge and the doctor went into the boys' room they jumpsd up in fright from their sleep. I3ut they were hardly awake before Kern had reached behind the looking-glass over Hark'a bed us mentioned by Margret, and seized hold of the candle that was there. It was a piece of efcearine candle about six inches long. Many grains of yellow sand were sticking to the candle stick, especially round the bottom rin.j where it had apparently rested on the sand, and large reddish marks, looking like the impress of a man's fingers, could be noticed on the side of the candle. The two men now went into King's room, the gendarmes following them closely. The apprentice appeared to be fast asleep. It will be remembered that he had said several times during the evening that he was very tired. 4 The scoundrel's acting is as audacious as the deed itself,' whispered lvern; and added aloud - 4 we will now carefully search the room and examine Kiug's clothes.' There was a sudden movement in the be...

Will 1888 Be a Year of War? [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

Will 1888 Be a Year of War The present year is the fifth year of modern times in which, the aggregate of the figures is twenty-five, and there will be but five years in which such a combination is possible prior to the year 2098. Probably but few have ever heard of the old prophecyj which runs as follows: In every future year of our Lord When the sum of the figures is twenty five. Some warlike kingdom will draw the sword, But peaceful nations in peace shall thrive. Students of modern history will readily recall how faithfully this prophecy has been fulfilled in the four previous years to which it applied. In 1699 Russia, Denmark and Poland formed the coalition against Sweden, which inaugurated the great war that ended in the disastrous defeat of Charles XII at Pultowa, The yeai 1789 will ever be memorable on account of the breaking out of the French Revolution. The year 179S witnessed the campaign of Bonaparte in Egypt and the formation of the second European coalition against Franc...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

VARIETIES. Railways are said to consume more than half the world's production of iron, the car wheels required in the United States alone taking more than 2,000,000 tons. In a London lawsuit, the cost on one side hag already amounted to $100,000. General Henry Ronald Mclver, the kind of man you read about-in 4 A Soldier of Fortune under Fourteen Flags, ' of which he is the hero-is living in New York. He is said to have fought eight duels, not to speak of more than that many love affairs. The flags he served under, according to the narrations, were those of the East India Company in the Sepoy Rebellion, Garibaldi, Southern Con federacy, Maxamilian, Brazil, Argentine Re public, Crete, Cuba, Egypt, France, Don Carlos, Herzegovina, Servia and Greece. In closing his recent volume of Reminis cences, T. Adolphus Trollope says: 1 My Toung friends,don't pay overmuch attention to what the Psalmist says about 'the years of man.'

It is nearly four months since he wai inthe district, bat of course he still takes a. great interest in the rabbis question. Mr "Bglinfrin though as anxious as any one to seethe rodents exterminated, says the circumstances of the people in the Hun dred of Wonna are really not half so bad as some people assert. The rabbits have been dying off in thousands, and are not nearly so numerous ds they have been in years past.. This decimation has not begun recently, but has been going on for months.

Curiosities of Heredity [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

Curiosities of Heredity Tnat the law of inheritance should bo con stant in it-i operation, however variable in its effects, is not a matter for surprise. Sir Henry Holland truly observes that the real subject for surprise is not that any peculiarity should be inherited, but that any should fail to be inherited; and Darwin, remarks thit the most correct way of viewing the whole subject would be to look at the inheritance of every character as the rule, and noninherit ance as the anomaly. It is obvious that instances of inheritance are most likely to be noticed and recorded .when the inherited peculiarity is striking and abnormal. Cases are on record of families whose members were characterized by the possession of a supernumerary digit on the hands and feet, and this remarkable pecu liarity has been transmitted through five i generations, showing how Btrong is the force of inheritance even in such a minor detail of structure. A still more singular instance is tnat of Lambert, the wel...

TALE. The Herald of Fate. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

The Herald of Fate. On a certain winter morning, a few years since, Mr. Clark Sogers, who was the ' Co.' in the firm of Harkness, Lyon & Co., in San some Street, appeared at the offiee with a very unusual expression on his face. Hark ness, who was an affable, kindly man, noticed it, and asked whether he was not i feeling very much out of sorts that morning. It did not escape Lyon, the practical manag ing head of the firm, who ventured the remark that Rogers evidently had something on his mind. The book-keepers, who were accustomed to work under Mr. Rogers's direction, commented upon it at noon to one another, and decided that something very queer most have happened to affect him so deeply. The something very queer whichhad upset the matter-of-fact intellect of Clark Rogers, and had brought the strained, bewildered look upon his face, was a letter which the postman had delivered at his bachelor apart ments that morning. With the reading of that letter a complete revolution ha...

Harried in Spite of Themselves. Some years ago, when, free-love notions were running' arcund loose in New England, a Boston man and woman who had imbibed of those doctrines until they affected to des pise all the common conventionalities of life came to the conclusion that they would lire together without going through the cere mony of marriage. They had both moved in good society and made no secret of their intention. In fact, they announced it to every one they met. Staid old Boston's aristocracy was shaken to the depths. * * * The man was prevailed upon to give a dinner party, to which were invited promin ent society people, including the Governor of the State. When dessert was put upon the table the talk became general, and soon turned upon the perverse couple. The man and woman answered every question put to them with the most perfect equanimity. Finally the Governor took a hand in the con versation. After asking a few questions and commenting on the answer thereto, in a calm, ...

ODDS AND ENDS. OZONE TREATMENT FOR COMSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

ODDS AND ENDS. 1 FOB COMSOTMPHOM'. In some experiments with ozone as a cura tive agent an English lady, so far advanced in consumption that her case appeared hope less, has been treated with inhalations of this gas with results described as marvelous. After a month's treatment the appetite was re gained, the sleep calm and refreshing, and there was a good prospect of recovery. The ozone was prepared by passing a stream of oxygen through the current of an induction coil and was administered with atmospheric air in the proportion of one in five. The experimenter has reached the con clusion that the ozone treatment is specially applicable to all germ diseases.-London Public Opinion. Soldiers in the Russian Army are said to be cured of intemperance by curious and heroic method. The inebriate is locked up and only given food boiled in his favourite wretched spirit and water.

STEPHEN, vn. | It seems clear to me now,' said the Judge finishing his remarks to the .Doctor ' Bahring committed the murder from jealousy, to j revenge himself on his fortunate rival and on his unfaithful sweetheart. Eat he was evidently from the first determined to frus trate justice by suicide. Therefore he ilid! not consider the danger ef leaving behind i the blood-stained handkerchief or the evidence of the torn letters. For, of course, he made sure of reaching' his house in safety, before any discovery was made. Cleansing his hands was merely from the natural horror a man would have on shedding the blood of a fellow creature. He locked all the doors before his escape, so as to prevent the chance of his being discovered and followed . before he gained the street and his house. He must have had a false hey made for the front door, which he probably hid on his way ho...

Some say it is pleasure to -wander at night, With a dear little maid on your old coat sleeve, And to whisper soft things 'neath the pale inooa_ light, In a delicate ear that is prone to believe. Some say it is pleasure to hold in your arm, A dear breathing* form, be she dark, be she fair; To feel the soft breath on. your cheek, sweet and warm, And to smooth from the brow, the rich clustering hair. Some say it is pleasure, all joking apart. To fed the quick pulse in a soft heaving breast, When happiness reigns in an answering heart, That dose to your own finds its haven of rest. Some say it is pleasure, the red lips to press, To taste the soft bloom of a fresh rosy cheek, To gaze in the depths of those eyes, that confess, '* I love you, I love, your love 'tis, I seek!" Some say it it pleasure, all say it, who know, That all pleasure's enhanced by the pressure of love, And if you love wisely on earth here below ...
