MEDICINE SIX THOUSAND YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904

MEDICINE SIX T?$OUSAID YEARS AGO. A fascinating story was told at the Royal College of Physicians by Dr. Richard Caton, F.R.C.P., in the Harveian Oration of the year. It seems that Harvey was almost anticipated 0,000 years ago by the priest. doctors of Egypt in his momentous dis covery of the ciroulation of the blood. As far back as 4,000 B.C. Egypt had works on medicine and anatomy, and one brilliant genius-forgotten nowadays, and omitted from the oyolopcedias-I-em-hotep, priest of the sun-god Ra, and physician to King Torosothros, became so eminent that he was revered as a demi-god after death; a temple was built over his tomb, and in his honour hospitals were raised in Memphis and other cities. Here the priest-physicians treated the sick and embalmed the bodies of men and sacred animals. They were probably, Dr. Caton thinks, the first of mankind to acquire a rudimentary know ledge of the mbvemont of the blood. Their papyri contain intelligent references to the heart, the blood ve...

Great battles are really won before they are actually fought. To control our pap sions, we must govern our habits, and keep watch over ourselves in the small details of ovo:yday life.- Sir John Lubbock. The real use of all knowledge is this: that we should dedicate the reason which was'given us by God to the use and advan tago of nman.-Lord Bacon. The purest and grandest beauty (fhr beyond that of -the fairest flower, and high above Nature's noblest work) is of the mind and soul, that labour to enlarge our humble course; by no defiance or heroism, or even conscious teaching. but by patience cheerfulness and modo~ty, truth, sim plicity and loving-kindness.-R.

Subsidies to Agricultural Societies [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904

Subsidies to Agricultural Societies Tmza Department of Agriculture has forwardeJ the following communiction to the seoretaries of the various agricultural societies' in the state : " Sir-I am directed to inform you that the estimates for the current financial year provided for payment of subsidies to Agrcloultural, Heorti cltnralt,. and: astoral Sooleties_.i at the .rte of 7/6 in the Z. " .: '";;a:, " It may, be explained that the amoqut voted on last year's estimates was at the rate of 5. in the £, but as payments continued to be made at the rate of 101 in the £, the amount voted was necessarily quite inadequate, and a great many claims had to:be held over. To meet acocumu lated claims to the end of the last financial year (30th June, 190t), no less a sum than £10,000 is provided in this year's estimates, in consequence of which, and in view of the state of the finances, it is regrette4 that the vote proper for the year has to be limited to a subsidy of 7s 6d in the £, and not to e...

Tirs t Sydney morning daillrs pitilessly pep pered the See-O'Sullivan-Waddell party and 'eacdessfnlly.incited the electors to destroy it. No sooner did Mr. Carruthers announnce his colleagues than the praess began to prick him. Mr. Carruthers, a Democrat at heart, shaped his programme according to his bent, and thereby offended the delicate capitalistic feel.' ings of the Sydney Morning Herald and Daily Telegraph These journals made Mr. Carruthers with enthusiasm. They are now determined to unmake him with cordiality. If Mr. Carruthers were a Tory of the Bent or Irvine type the morning press would extol his statesmanship and trumpet his triumphs. As however he propo-es to amalgamate the Savings Banks he is more than suspected of being a prograssive and any new ideas are heresy in the eyes of the press of privilege and profits. So a deid ...

To Be Depended On. BECAUSE IT IS THE EXPERIENCE OF A QUEANBEYAN CITIZEN AND CAN READILY BE INVESTIGATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904

To Be Depended On. BECAUSE IT IS THE IEXPERIENCE OF .A QUEANBEYAN CITIZEN AND CAN READILY BE INVESTIGATED. A STraINaa lost in a large city would place far more dependence on the directions given him by a local resident than on the guidance of another stranger like himself. This is a natural consel quence of experience. It's like a ship in a strange port-a trusty pilot familiar with the lharbour is always called on to bring her safely to her moorings. So it is with endorsement; we doubt the sayings of people living at distant points because we can't investigate, but public expression of local citizens can be depended on, for 'tis an easy matter to prove it. Evidence like the following is beyond dispute. Mr. J. J. Cane, Harrison's Hotel, Queen; beyan, says :-" For seven years I suffered with. a terrible backache. Nothing seemed tobe'able to give me relief, until, ori'the advice of a friend1 I procured Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. The fact that my friend had used this remedy with grea...

SHORT STORY. Faithful Unto Death I. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904

SHORT STORY. Faithful Unto Death By LI\: ox C0.:Ew. I, T HE sun was sinking in a nulled red glow from the brassy sky, hauging over a waste of dry African scrub-an arid, treeless desert-as a small party of Engiich troopers, with a -ub-lieutenant in c om mand, came slowly along, showing by the drawn faces of the men and the tired droop of the horses' heads how much the) had suffered from the burning heat of the dov', which even now had only given way to a sultry, insupportable heavingc. They were still eight miles fromn their dest ination, a small military depot temprarily p!iwed there on account of one of our many little frontier disturbances. The younig cliteer had but lately -come from I'uilanud, and was, therefore, more affllected by the beat than his men, who were mostly acclimnaticed. He was a good specimen of the lEnglish soldier, who goes out in their thousands to water with their blood the soil of our va.st foreign possessions. To-night fatigue was telling on him, and he had ...

Farm and Garden. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. POULTRY FATTENING OR CRAMMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904

Farm and Garden. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. POULTRY FATTEIING OR CRAMMING. T?HE rapidly increasing interest that is being manifested in this branch of the poultry business is very gratifying. The profits to be made in poultry belong, first of all, to the farmer or producer, and it rests with him to say at what stage of the business he will turn them over to the next man. Ufiless he has filled the frame of the fowl, hog, steer or sheep with all the weight it can be made to carry, he is throwing away the very opportunity that assures him the highest price per bushel for his grain that it is possible to obtain. In no form of meat will the same amount of grain return as great a price as it will in poultry, especially when it is finished as it should be. In some parts buyers and sellers have fully awakened to the advan tages of the situation and are reaping their reward. There are a few facts that should be borne in mind :-It costs a few pence more per pound to put meat on chickens that are perm...

CHAPTER XXIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904

CHiAPTEIR XXII. Mrs Denbigh ])cne was one of those dear old ladies iwho obstinately refuse to grow, old. She was very close on seventy years of age; and affected quite a grandmotherly mode of dress. lier hair, too, was collected in rolls on either side of her smiling face, with quite a determined air of last-century primness in their .every curve. It was, however, all to no purpose. The voice came out with all the merry ring of a frolicsome fifty; the twink ling eye reTused to lose its forty-year old brightness; and the spirit Which underlay all had forgotten the lapse of time since she .was twenty years. old at thirty. It was no wonder that Mrs'Denbigh Donie was a popular hostess, and as nothing delighted her more than to see lively people happy all.round her, the various functions she -organised during her stay in ''L6ndon were always jolly and thor oughly. enjoyable. Her house was also one of those indefinite platforms at which one could 'never be. surprised. Mrs Den bigh Dene li...

CHAPTER XXII. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 25 October 1904

CHAPTER XXII. When it was fully arranged that Jack was to go to Africa, it seemed as if a great weight was removed from his mind. He wanted to do his very beat by Mabel in every respect. Accustomed all his life to a great deal of affection, having been made a great deal of both in society and at home, he could hardly understand that he had failed so completely to captivate Mabel. That he shouldn't care for her was only natural, when he compared her with some of the charming women in London, but it seemed rather strange to him that Mabel, who had seen no one, should not be in love with him in the least, and was only, as he s-id to himself over Sand over again, marrying him out of kind. ness. Now and again he would give a dry. laugh as he thought it really seemed rather funny, and then he half made up his mind to try to make the girl like him. She already said that she looked upon him as her bent friend ; surely it would be easy to develop this feeling into a warmer one, and yet was i...
