DR. D'UNGAR'S REMEDY FOR DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

DR. D' UNGAR'S REMEDY FOR DRUNKENNESS. About a month ago we published the text of Dr. D'Ungar's cure for drunk enness; we now append an extract from the Lancet on the subject. The experienced gained was not from a trial of the red bark, but with the ordinary Extract of Quinine ; it was proved most unmistakably that although the remedy may not be an entire cure or preventative of recurring attack., yet the value of quinine as a remedy in at tacks of dipsomania can hardly be over estimated, if, as stated by Surgeon-Major Adams, it can cure delirium tremens in from two to four days:- On the value of tincture of cinchona as a remedy for drunkenness, Surgeon Major Adams, writing from Lanark, N.B., to the Lancet, says :-The fol lowing approximation to the treatment for the cure of drunkenness, as advo cated by Dr. Robert D'Ungar, of Chi cago, and successfully carried out by him in about 2000 cases, is my single experience; but as it throws some feeble light upon the subject of in quiry, I...

NORTHCOTE OMNIBUSSES TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

NORTHCOTE OBANIBUSSES TO THE EDIrTO OF THE MERCURY. Sia,-The Omnibus Company have since the 1st July increased the fare from the 3rd mile post at the 'bus stables, Clifton-hill, to the 4th mile post just past the Wesleyan Church, Northcote, to 3d. From Melbourne to Clifton-hill, distance of three miles, the fare is threepence, but from Clifton-hill to Northcote, one mile, the same charge is made. Is this just or reasonable? The Company received .£300 from the residents of Northcote to run a line, and that opened up the profitable extension to Clifton-hill; but now, Northcote is to be left in the cold. Every particular train run does net pay the state, but the general average and the general profit is taken into account. The same with the Omnibusses, if the public give proper support at the busy times of the day, the company must be content to supply accommodation in the middle of the day or evening, although that particular trip or that particular extenso'l may not directly show a p...

TO THE LIBERAL ELECTORS OF FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

TO THE LIBERAL ELECTORS OF FITZROY. Faoa THE NATIONAL EEPoaR AND Pao TrTcnoN LEAGUE. Gentlemen-Now that the election is over, and you have leisure to consider the circumstances which surrounded the contest, we are of opinion that you have a right to know what action we, as the Central organization of the party, took in the matter. We are further of opinion that it is due to ourselves and to the interests of the organization, which we are honored to serve, that a true and faithful statement of the facts of the case, so far as we are concerned, should be placed before you. We are induced to take this, step because we know from experience that, in election contests, where personal aims, feelings, and prejudices, come sharply into collision, as they did in this instance, garbled, exagger ated, and one-sided, statements of facts, to say nothing of pure fictions, are circn lated, and gain more or less of credence. That such has been the case in relation to our connection with, and proceed...

THE GREEN-EYED MONSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

TfE GREEN.EYED JIONSTER. Mr. Kroeger was tranquilly eating his brakfast, amorning or so ago, when his boyj ibroke his silence by asking him for twqnty-five cents to go to the minstrels with that night. Mr. Kroeger promptly refied, on the ground of hard times. Mr. Kroeger's boy is more than a boy, and -phen he sets his heart on having anything, he" generally succeeds in getting it; so, when his father refused to comply with his request, he moved' over by his mother, and said: "I guess I'll tell ma what the cook said to you last night." Mrs. Kroeger's eyes flashed like two balls of fire. "You're a nice man," she said sarcastically, "to come home: and pet me and kiss me, and call me your dew gemmed tulip, and then go and receive the caresses of the cook. You miserable frog-eyed runt, for two pins I'd go over there and rake your eyes out." "I, ah," stammered the lord of the manor, when his wife broke in "i Oh, yes, I'll ah you I " and turning suddenly to the boy she demanded an explanat...

HURLING. COLLINGWOOD V. KYNETON. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

HTRELIYG. COLLINUGw , D U 1YJNETON. THE above match took placn on the Kyneton racecourse, on Saturday afternoon, and as this was the first game that the Collingwood players journeyed out of town to play this season, some little interest was manifested in it. This was the third time these clubs had met in friendly rivalry, the first at Kyneton, where Collingwooi suffered defeat, while the second game, played at Colling wood, resulted in a decisive victory for the flatites. Consequently a good d:eal of in terest was centered in the result of the third contest. The Collingwood players mustered at Spencer-street to proceed by the 12-15 train, and a rather sorry figure they presented for, of the twenty seven certainties that were on the card, only seventeen put in an appearance. This was to be regretted. as it was known that Kyneton never had a stroner team to getherthantheon that awaited Collingwood boys on this occasion, nevertheless t:e Col lingwool were determined to do their very be...

She'snatched the bauble from' his hands,: broke the string with a sudden tug, threw the beads at her lover's head, stamped her pretty foot savagely on the ground, bu;rst forth into.a 'raging storm of scornful abuse, and then suddenly stooped down and picked up a huge fragment of granite, evidently, for use as a missile.

PROGRESS AND STABILITY OF SAVINGS BANKS Concluded. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

PROGRESS AND STABILITY. Bry ABACUs. .7 Concluded. It must be interesting at this time of depression and failure of some of our local banks, to inquire a little more closely into the progress and stability of the Savings' Banks in this Colony. We find there are two systems here, as in England working side by side, which had between them at the date of 'their last respective returns, a total 'of £1,592,244 invested to the- credit .of 74.790 depositors, an amount-and num ber that has since been considerably increased. The first system established which, for the sake of distinction, we will call the old Savings' Bank has with eleven branches, 30,429 depositors and £940,156. The Post Office Sav ings' Bank has 166 branches, 44,361, depositors, £652,088. The: latter system from the fact of its business heibg carried on in Post-offices already occupied, and post-masters already salaried, can establish branches in thinly populated districts where the old Savings' Banks, by reason of the expe...

TYRANNICAL HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 July 1879

TYRANNICAL HUSBANDS. (From the Liberal Review.) There are men who look upon their wives as so many nonentities. Possibly, they ate fond of their partners after a fashion, but, unfortunately, their fashion is a very peculiar one. They appar ently labour under the idea that so long as they provide the poor ladies with lodging, good food, and a suffici ency of raiment, they do all that can be reasonably required from them. It does not app-ar to enter their heads that the ill-a~sd women have op nions of theirowvn, or that;they should beourdeked with such thing'. They seem to im agine, indeed, that their ladies should be so many reflectors of the talents and the tastes of their lords and masters. Consequently, they do snot 'deem it necessary to ask the snubbed crea tures where they would like to live, and how they would like to live, and what they would like to live on. They say. "IMy dear, this will be good for you, and that will be good for you, and the other will be good for you, and ...

HOMIEOPATHIG MEDICINES Will be found to GIVE GREAT RELIEF In the COMPLAINTS PREVAILAING At this part ofthe year. In Coughs and Colds a little Aconit given in conjunction with the strong tincture of Bryonia is the best treatment to commence with, if, after a fair trial it should not care, use Ant. Tart, Ipecacuanha should be borne in mind, For Influenza, Arsenicum and Euphasia are specific. In Croup, Aconit, given in alternation with Spongia will in most cases cure, shonld they fail give Ant.
