Coonong Siding. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

Coonong* Sitlins1. W ednesday. A rather unsatisfactory — some say a one sided inquiry was held on Friday last, at the Siding, into a case where the caretaker of the goods shed was alleged to have struck a young girl for looking over her sister's shoulder, while the latter was signing for a parcel. The reason the woman alleged was, uiui. Ilia gui UIU it iu piuvune nei. i uc inquiry was apparently without result, as the aggrieved took out a summons, which was heard in Urana on Wednesday last, when the defendant was fined 10s and costs o£ court. Matters here are just now pretty lively, as we shall either have to get police protection or else import Larry Foley or some other '? pug ' to give lessons to the fair sex in the noble art. A contract has been taken to cart, break, and spread metal on the road between the Sidiug and Uratia, so as to put it in order for tbe coming winter. A nasty and painful accident happened to Mr. Wm.

The Things He ' Likit.' A promising young minister was recently appointed to a parish in Ayrshire. One of the elders who had zealously supported him, having been asked on what ground he had done so, replied, ' Weel, I had several reasons. First of a , when he cam' up to the kirk in the mornin', ma neebour elder an' me was stannin' at the* plate, an' he said in a frank way, ' Good mornin', gentlemen.' I likit that. Then, after I gaed into the kirk, I noticed that in giein' out the psalm he named it twice. I likit that. Then, again, when he was preachin', some o' them in the kirk were coughing rather much ; he just stoppit till they were dune, and then gaed on again.

Tomato Pests. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

Tomato Pests. To protect tomato-plants from insect ravages, I find Paris green safe and effectual if properly used (says Professor J. S. Robinson, of Mary land, in the ' Government Gazette.') The tomato crop is being seriously damaged all over t}ie country by a j blight which attacks the foliage of the plants. To protect them against this, as well as to save them from insect depredations, it is best to use a com bined spray of Bordeaux mixture and Paris green, using j{lb. of Paris green to forty gallons of the Bordeaux.

The Fly Pest. How They Originate. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

The Fly Pest, How They Originate. From the Agricultural Gazette of 'N.8. W. \ Flies need no introduction. They get on familiar terms with you at once, and you can neither spray them with a fire-hose or kill them with a stick. But everything has its day, and people who are compelled to spend summer in a halo of dangling cork, or are compelled to take a chequered glimpse of existence through , the hazy meshes of a veil will be pleased to learn that in America they have marked the arch-tormentor with a spot. Mr. Reve Bache, in the ' Pro vidence Journal,' says : — ' There is no need there should be any fly time, however, if the Govern ment scientists are to be believed. The annoyance is entirely preventable, and only human carelessness is ac countable for the existence of the swarms of these insects, which do so much to make life a hardship in summer. Recently the Bureau of Entomology has been investigating the question, and it declares that a few simple precautions would practically ex...

Club Manners. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

Club Manners. William K. Mahoney is noted for his nerve. William owes money. Collectors are after William. Seated at a lonely breakfast in his club the other morning, one of them broke in through the drowsi ness of the porter at the door, and presented his bill. ' Sir, said William, glaring at him, ' is thiB all you know of the usages of decent sooiety ? To present a bill to a man breakfasting, sir? Do you know that you are an intruder in this club, sir? Do you know I could call tho servants ana have you thrown out, sir ? If you wish to talk business, go outside and send in your card like a gentleman, and not like a wretched ragamuffin, sir.' The collector went out and sent in his card. William picked it up between thumb and forefinger, adjusted his monocle, and read it. ' Tell tho gentleman,' he said, sweetly, ' that I am not in.' Au inquiry in Franco into the cause of certain strange symptoms in aickneea shown by seamstresses has brought into prominence a triok of the silk thread ...

A Pearl of Great Price. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

1 Pearl of Great Price. -v On6 hundred and twenty thousand pounds was tho price paid for the great Tavernier pearl. It was originally owned at Catifa. in Arabia, and M. Tavernier made the trip from Paris to tho desert city of Arabia for the express purpose of purchasing the pearl about which so much had been said and written. Ho went prepared to pay any price from £1,000 to £1,000,000. It was thought that he might succeed in closing the bargain for £ 30,000, but this proved to be a great mistake. The sum first offered was - £10,000, but the deal remained open for some days even after that offer had been increased to £60,000. ' Finally the bargain was closed for £120,000. Pearl connoisseurs de clare that it is not only the largest, but also the most perfeot gem of its kind known, being exactly two inches in length, oval, and of spotless lustre. Among tho crown jewels of England there is a pearl .over an inch long, and egg-shaped, which cost the Government not less than £100,000.

A Lancashire Superstition.

Some Curious Timepieces. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

Some Curious Timepieces. Napoleon I. had a watch which wound itself by means of a weighted lever, which rose and fell at every step and, having a gathering click to it, wound up the rachet attached to the barrel. Pedometers were after wards made on the same principle. The Duke ot Wellington had a watch given to him by the King of Spain, from which the time could be told by the touch, the hours being marked by studs. In the back of the case was placed an index, which, when moved forward, would stop at the portion of the hour indicated by the watch, and then by means of the studs the time could be approximately computed in the dark. Catherine of Russia had a timepiece constructed by an ingenious peasant, which played a chant, and had within it tiny mechanical figures, which, moving about, were supposed to represent the resurrection of our Saviour.

Exterminating Fleas. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

Exterminating Fleas. The flea has not hitherto seemed to flourish in Central Africa. The larva must have a dry place for its develop ment. It is now said, however, that the flea is becoming established there fr- flio pvf-pnf nlmnsfnf a nlapne. Dr. R. A. Freeman relates a curious ex ample of the way in which the flea can multiply in Africa. During a visit to Bontuku the fleas rapidly increased in numbers, until, he writes, ' as I sat in the hut a dense cloud of black specks appeared on my white clothes, and steadily advanced upwards, so that I was compelled to brush them off every minute to prevent them from swarming , on my neck and face*' Remembering the flea's need of a dry place for its larval stage,' Dr. Freeman got rid of his enemies by keeping the floor of the mess hut and of his tent constantly flooded with water for a time. In a few days hardly a flea was to be seen. In this case the ' British Medical Journal ' thinks the flea was not Pulex irritans, the flea of man, but Pul...

Wonders of the Heart [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

Wonders of the Heart l'he heart and the lungs are two of the most active and important organs of the body. They are important from the fact that they are intimately connected with the purification of the blood and. its production — this blood once termed 'the life.' The human heart has ar. average of about five inches in length, by four in diameter, doing an immense amount of labour, for so small an organ. Though small, it does work equal to raising, one foot high, one hundred and twenty-two tons in each twenty four hours of life. During sixty years of human life, at that rate, its labours will be equal to that of raising two million six hundred and seventy-one thousand and eight hundred tons. This action of the heart commences before birth, continues day and night, during sleep and waking, varying according to attending conditions, the pulsations being more rapid dur- | ing the day than in the night. Fright j or other excitement will increase its 1 action. Females have a more rapid...

THE BLOWING UP OF THE ORIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 6 January 1899

THE BLOWING UP OF THE ORIENT. Writing io 4* Coruhill,' for. August, of the battlo of the Nile, Profssor J. K. Laughton gives the following account of the blowing up of tho Orient, which has been a fertile source of inspiration for poets and painters, The French ships, he says, towards the last individually fought bravely, but there was no attempt at collective action, aud they were singly over powered. The huge Orient was at first engaged by the Bellerophon alone, whioh, by a mischance, lay exposed to her tremendous broadside, and was speedily reduced to a wreck. She cut her cable and drifted out of the light, but her place was taken by the Alexander and I Swiftsure, which did uot come into notion- till | about eight o'clock, and anchored, one on the bow, the other on the quarter of the Orient. Even before this time it had been seen that the Orient was on fire between decks. This was apparently extinguished, but some little timo after she was again on fire under tbe poop. It was nev...

CHERUBINI AND THE MOB. The following curious incident ia the life of Cberubini is told in ' Famous Violinists and Fine Violins,' by Dr. T. L. Fhipson. Uberu bini was in Paris during the Revolution. Once, during an occasion of more than ordinary i .x- I citement he fell into the hands of a band of revolutionists who were seekinx for musioians to conduct their revolutionary bowlings. To them it was u special satisfnotion to compel men of talent who had formerly delighted royalty and nobility to administer now to their own gratification, On the great composer firmly refusing to lead them, a murmur ran through the orowri, and he was taunted by half-a-dozen voiaes as being a ' royalist.' Such a taunt bad only to be taken up by the remainder to signify speedy death. At this intensely critical moment one of Cherubini's friends,* musician who bad already been iorcibly enrolled by the ruffians, and hap pened to be standing uear bim, thrust a ' wrotohed violin ' into his unwilling bands, and ...

MEAT AND DRINK. The backwoodsman, when he stands more in need of winter meat than present brandy, will mix a bottle of ' tarantula juice '' — a some what potent species'of brandy or rye-wbisky, which is guaranteed to ' drop its man at 80 yards ' — with some molasses, and empty it into a hollow bough, whioh he leaves in the bear's usual track. Old Ephraim cannot resist it, aud having licked it up to the last drop, and mumbled the sodden wood into sawdust, turns to go on his own way. .A'strange elevation of s.ul shortly afterwards possesses him. He would troll a stave if be knew one. He beams genially upon the landscape. But he finds the path unusually uneven.
