Miscellaneous. Texan Torments. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 19 February 1887

(Iieccllancous. Texan Tormentt. A writer speaking of some of the thcings which he discovered that are troub!lemso to strangers in Texas, says : Then we have the fog-whistle locust. He is about seven times as large as a grcss.hop per, and makes nine times the noise of a planing-mill. During the lay he hides, pro bably to oil up his machinery, but at dusk he gets in a tree overhead and lets loose with a suddenness and violence to make your teeth chatter. If you have been on at togboat New Year's eve, you will know the elffect produced by this pleasing insect when he tunes upand breaks into song. After hearing him once you will think a saw-tiline machine a music box. He sings steadily for five hours, and at midnight precisely bhe lets off an extra whoop to let you know he is through, and instantly becomes silent, and probably goes to bed with the proud consciousness of L?ar ing cone his duty. In the meantime, you have found It impossible to close your eyes. but now you teum a Te Deum a...

MUlnOr. A Shrowd Tramp. - Out at Marslnhf-. 31issouri,onu bittercld night the past winter a party of drummers were sented about the lire in a hotel, awaiting the night train. The wind whistled and howled outside, while the frost wrought itself in fantastic pic turcs In tle window-panes. , Well. boys," said one of the party, "it most be done. We most catch the train or freeze in the attempt." ", Whew--what a night I " said another, opening the door and peepingout. " Hello I he added, " what's this ? " As he spoke he opened the door and ul mitted a man of wretched appearance. Ilis ragged, thread-bare coat was fastened with a rusty tenpenny nail, which washoary with frost. On his head was an old piece of cloth that might have at one time been termed a hat. On his feet were apologies for shoes, through which crept his sockless toes. " Only a tramp," said a Chicago drum mr.True," replied the wretch, in a husky voice: "onlya tramp. I wasrichonce. No, don't offiler mne your money or whisky...

The Size of the Spider's Thread. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 26 February 1887

The Size of the Spider's Thread. I have loftea compared the size of the thread spun bh full grown spiders with a hair of my beard. For this purpose I placed the thickest Iart of the hair befolre the mi croscope, andi from the most accurate judge. ment I could fsrm, more than a hundred of such threads placed side by side could not equal the diameter of one such hair. If, then, we suppose such a hair to be of a round form, it follows that ten thousand of the threads span by the full grown spider. when taken together, will not equal in substance to the size of a tingle hair. To this if we add that four hundred yooun spilers, at the time when they begin to spin their webs, are not larger than a full grown one, and that each of these minute spiders possesses the same organs as the larger ones, it follows that the exceedingly small threads spun by these little creatures must be still four hundred times slenderer, and conse quontly that four millions of these minute spiders' threads aunnot...

A Willing Substitute. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 26 February 1887

A Willing Substitute.-A boy was once apprenticed to the captain of a Scottish coasting vessrd. It was mnore than a hundred years ago, and at that time the olficers of the king of England used to go about to get re cruits for both the army and navy. They boarded any vessel that they thought likely to have strong men. and obliged them to join the king's navy. The vessel in which young Campbell was sailing was one day boarded by a kine's officer, and every person was car ried off to serve in the wars w?ith the excep tion of the captain and his young apprentice. Among the unwilling prisoners was the mate of the vessel, who ihaul a wife and children, and who so disliked the idea of going off to fight that he cried like a child. No one eared mouch for his erief bat young Carelpbell, who was so sorry for him that he hegeed the olli cer to take him as a recruit, and let the mate remain with the captain. " Ay, my lad, that I will," was the ready answer. "For I would much rather have a a boy ...

Topics of the I)Dy.

The malady attains its greatest virnlence ih, the months of January, Feiruary, March, and April, and although its existence has been known for some time it has been found impossible to discover its origin or cure. The popular belief' is that the disease results from the presence of parasites in tihe intcstines but so far as is yet known no post mortem examination has been madn for the purpose of ascertaining the truth or otherwise of that nss...

Shying Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 26 February 1887

Shyiang orse. Zl~his trick or vice is generally the effet of Nervous timidity, resulting from an excitable teramrent. It is aggravated by improper handling. To punish a horseforshyingintro. duces a new cause of fear. The horne will be more alarmed and show more tokens of fear at the prospect of a whipping than at the imaginary object of danger in the road. Hence one bad habit is confirmed by the introduction of another. It is impossible to whip terror out of a horse or pound courage into one. Kindness and gentle persuasion tre the best weapons to correct the pernicious habit of shying. The less fear exhibited by the driver, and the less notice taken of the shying by using harsh means, the sooner it will be given up. A careful, experienced horseman can generally detect an object likely to cause a nervous horse to shy, and by wvort or touch rill enconrage him to pass it unnoticed. When this fails, give him time to look at the object of fear: pat him and coax him up to it, then take hi...
