PHYSIOLOGY. PHYSIOLOGY formed the subject of a very in teresting and instructive lecture, given by Mr. D. T. Wiley, at the Public School, 6n Wednesday evening. The lecture was in tended for children, though a number of adults, aware of Mr. Wiley's previous efforts being so satisfactory, took advantage of open doors and attended. The subject is one of the greatest im portance. and forms a study in whioh not | only children should be well versod, but in whioli their parents and others should take equal interest, for as lias been remarked by | one of fame, " The proper study of man kind is man." Mr. Wiley's remarks occupied about an hour and a half, and were splendidly illus trated by tho oxycalcium lantern. He com menced by showing on the canvas a skele ton, from which he described the principal bones of the human body, and their relative workings. He then proceeded to illustrate and explain tho internal organs which was certainly the most interesting, as well as in structive portion ...

SHOCKING RAILWAY CASUALTY. ONE MAN KILLED AND OTHERS INJURED. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 19 May 1883

SHOCKING RAILWAY CASUALTY. ONE MAN KILLED AND OTHERS INJURED. A FATAL railway accident occurred on Wed nesday night, between the Bottom Points of Lithgow Zig Zag, and Eskbank railway station ; resulting in the death of a young man named Daly, and the injury of several otherswho were in connection with the trains. The following particulars came to hand early on Wednesday morning:-It appears that a goods train timed to leavo Eskbank at 7 55 p.m., was running late, and iafc 10 o'clock had reached the watering place at the Bottom Points whore the en gine was taking supplies. The train was composed of a mixed freight, among which was a quantity of live stock. Another goods train, timed to leave Eskbank at 0 40 p.m., started to time, and was on its way up the steep incline at which point there is on average grade of one foot in forty. It ap pears that while the first train was standing at the Bottom Points, the screw coupling broke, no doubt from the.great strain of a heavy load in the re...

THE ZIG ZAG ACCIDENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEPEAN TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 19 May 1883

THE ZIG ZACT ACCIDENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEPEAN TIMES. Sin,-From my small stock of knowledge in connection with railway matters, I gather that the staff system of running trains, if worked properly could never admit of such a calamity as occurred, near Lithgow Zig Zag on Wednesday night, and there is in that branch evidently a screw loose with regard to systematic procedure. I think the system provides that one train should pass the next station, or staff place, before another should be allowed to proceed, and if such were enforced it is evident that that accident would not have occurred as it did. No doubt when the frail coupling broke an accident at some point was inevitable, though that is not the point alluded to. It is to bo hoped that tho system will bo re vised and thus save future sacrifico of valu able lives. There are other points whero blame is attachable, but I will not now occupy your space in referring to them. I am Yours &c., OAS.
