SOMNAMBULISM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

SOMhNAMBULIS?M "Night is the time for sleep," sings the poet, and assuredly with truth. The hush of darkness lures Us to repose,,as naturally as the morning sun impresseson us the necessity to be up and' about our labours. Nor is this state of things con fined to the human system. At close of day quiet settles on all things, and a ces astion of activity and motion is to be obh served in creation. Action is succeeded by listlessness, energy by languor, and the desire of exertion by the inclination iir repose. But it is not by mere repose from action that our wasted power can be r'cruited or our nervous energy restored. Oblivion of feeling and imagination is essential to sleep, and in a great measure a constituent part of slumber. The sen. sorial power must cease to be in an active condition; and it is only when the ner vous system gets exhausted, that the sen sibility and energy displayed by this power decline, and fall at last into a state ,~f torpor or sleep. But while this is so, ...

* Fashions in women are changing as regu larly as in dresses.' The black-haired, small. mouthed girl is now, going out of date,' and her red.headed sister with a big mouth is coming to the front. Tuo BaisncouTA.--The Barraconta, says an English writer, is perhaps the most vorn cious and fierce fish that exists. I have heard of it growing to eight feet in length, but never baw one out of the water above three or four feet. I am nota skilled ichthyologist, and never saw much expression. in a fish's eye, but that of the barraecouta is the cmbodi. ment of cold cruelty. The shape of the fish is almost. exactly like that of. a pike; the teeth are, however ditferent-very sharp, lancet-looking thins. When lying at the island of Annabon, on the west coast of Africa, we were anchored in about fifteen fathoms water. The water was sod eautifnlly clear that we could see the bottom. , Ve nearly always saw one or more barracoutas lying fathoms down perfectly motionlesa, while shoals of a small mac...

SOMNAMBULISM. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 6 October 1881

SOMNAMBUIUSM, (Continued.) Morrison, in his Medicine no .Ilystery, speaks of a clergyman who used to get up in the night, light his candle, write sermons, correct them with interlineations, and retire to bed again; bein_ all the time fast asleep. A similar story, which the writer has every reason to believe authentic, is told of one of the most popular Dissenting preachers of the present day. He had been perplexed and blffled for some days in the treatment of a sublject which he had chosen for his discourse on the following Sunday ; and on Saturday night, still dissatisfied, he mentioned to his wife, on retiring to rest, the difficulty be had experienced. She advised hli to clear his mind of it for that night, and go to sleep. In the course of the night his wife ws awakened by her husband sitting up in bed and preparing himself as if to preach ; which he accordlingly proceeded to do, taking for his subject the text which had hitherto so perplexed him. When done, he lay down and slep...

A GHOST IN AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 6 October 1881

A GHOST IN AFRICA. On the fifth day of our march from Iendwa I was, as usual, considerablyin front of my men, who with their loads were not able to walk as fast as myself. The sky threatened astorm, which made me hasten to reach Pam lilo. On approaching the village nobody was to be seen, the natives being either out in the field or in their houses out of the rain. The stockade presenited a rather uninviting ap pearance, being ornamented with a few hun dred human skulls in all conditions, from the freshly stuck-up head to the bleached cra. nium, and all apparently snapping their jaws at the thought of a new companion as the wind wheeled them backward and forward. However, the rain was falling fast, and there was no use of being squeamish. So into the village I marched unnoticed, and, finding out a hut with a broad, overhanging cave, I took refuge out of sight, waiting till my men came forward, in order that I might appear with appropriate pomp. I had been thus ensconced nearly ten mi...

ADVENTURE WITH A VENOMOUS SERPENT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 6 October 1881

ADVENTURE WITH A VENOMOUS SERPENT. The ier.deflance (Triganocephalns lanceos latus) is closely allied to the rattlesnake, and is, perhaps, one of the most deadly serpents in creation. Its poison apparatus is immense. The'name is derived, no doubt, from the elongated triangular shape of the head, fiat and almost black on the upper surface, thicker and lighter below, The jaws are of enormous thickness. It varies from dull sandy-grey to dusky-brown in colour, very difficult to distinguish from the ground on with it lies, with irregular, indistinct, dlia. mond-shaped markings of a faded purpli-h hue about the sides; the scales are strongly imbricate, and "keeled" or sharply ridged along the back, while in. length it measures from 2ft. to 8ft. or 10ft. Its great peculiar. ity, however, is the claw or horny nail at the end of the tail; this is, like our finger nails, an appendage of the skin and may be consid ered the rattle of the true Crotalus in a rudi mentary condition. Mr. Arthur Str...
