Wonders of the Bacteria. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

Wonders of the Bacteria. The most interesting facts of science are Kometimes concealed under under hard and repellent names. Who would suppose, for instance, that snch wordB as ' pbototaxiB1' aud ' ch«mi'taxia ' really cover very fascinating discoveries, for the enjoyment of which no profound scientific knowledge whatever is re quired. Phototaxis means tho influence of light on the movements of the simplest living organisms. Tbe factB that it include* are as surprising as they are interesting. There is a kind of bacterium, shaped like a minute rod and of a purple colour, which ex exhibits thiB influence of light iu a beau tiful manner. Indeed, it has been named the light-measuring bacterium. If a drop of water containing these bacteria is placed under a microscope, and a narrow beam of light is thrown upon any part of the field of view, the organisms immediately flock to ths illuminated spot uctil by their great numbers they turn that part of the water to the colour of wine. Then, t...

More about Wyalong. [By W. B. M.] Notwithstanding al! the gruesfime prophecies o£ its fungus growth and its alike decease, 'Wyalong is steadily improving and settling down into some thing solid. Tho surveyed township is talcing the fancy of tbe new settlors, and I am very glad of Dais, as its position from a hygienic point is far before that of its older and bigger sister. Buildings keep sprouting up there liko young cabbages, betokening a fair future of enterprise for this hoy den city, still in short frocks and pinafores as it were. People are moving that way, and land there is now worth £2 per foot, and plenty of buyers at that. One man, I hear, has declined .£140 for bis allotment held only by miner's right. There has been great displeasure expressed at the way in which the mail service is carried on. You know, or at least I should tell you, that the post office was removed from Wyalong to tho main camp, which everybody acknowledges as having been a big mistake, as the township ...

HINTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

HINTON. It is so seldom our little village is mentioned in your columns that I send you a few lines.to show we are yet in existence. Our late constable, Mr. Charles Stevens, who has been stationed here for the last three years and a half, ha3 been promoted as gaoler at Port Macquarie. Before he left a few of his friends met at Host Sharp's, and agreed to invite Mr. Stevens to a social, which came off with eclat and was a great success. Good wishes, health, and prosperity to himself, Mrs. Stevens, and their amiable family was carried with acclamation, which must have made the slates rattle on the roof. A handsome silver-mounted pipe was then presented to Mr. Stevens as a token of esteem and as a re minder of the friends he left behind him. Mr. Stevens is an efficient officer, and we hope to hear of hiB being a super, at no distant date. Harmony then prevailed for the rest of the evening, and a' very pleasant evening was passed. Host Sharp is a host to be proud of ; he is a host in hi...

STEWART'S BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

STEWART'S BROOK. Our weather programme, which we were begin ning to hope was drawn out for the season, has been most suddenly altered, and altered in a telling way too. From delightful warm, almost spring-like days, we are plunged into cold, bleak winter, with but a few hours' notice. Not just what we have ordered, but still just what we have often experienced, so are not alarmed. Yesterday (Sunday) it commenced to ram about S a.m., and continued on and off through most of the day, Towards mid-dny some very small hail fell, but not sufficient to do any damage. We can, again report another highly payable crushing, though the parcel waa small. One ton from Messrs. Well's claim yielded 12oz. retorted gold. The reef still :promises well, so we hope the yield will keep up its good mark. Another parcel of five tons from the Teddy Morgan gave the miserable return of 7dwts. per ton. The carting C03t 10s per ton, and -the crushing 15s, leaving the unfortunate party 'the receipt only for thei...

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

Sporting Motes and Notions. [By the Vagrant.] The meetiug of the Northern Jockey Club whicii ?concluded on Saturday lasfcmay beset down asfairly ?successful, although I am sorry to say many more profitable reuniona have been held at Eutherford. The attendance on the second day waa very poor smaller indeed than on Friday, when the weather was unfavourable: and this is aimply nnexplainable. The existence of so much town betting about New castle, where people oan heavily back their fancieB in the streets, probably served to keep many sports -*en of the coaly city at home. As has already been said, the conduct of the gathering was excellent, albeit the committee had to ?assert themaelvea on two or three occasions. Thirty-six of tho forty-three horses handicapped by Mr. Quinton, carried silk on Friday, aud he was equally successful on Saturday. Mr. Markwell handled the red flag in all races except the Members' Handicap— in which he had a mount— in very good style, but in this especial ev...
