BILLIARDS EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
BILLIARDS EXTRAORDINARY. After seven days' play (says the SPORTING LIFE) the extraordinary match between W. Mitchell and W. J. Peal (10,000 up, for £100) which has been progressing at Mr. A. Baker's fine saloon adjoining the Manor House, Finsbury Park, N., since Aug. 15th last, was brought to a conclusion next day. We say extraordinary advisedly, for it has proved so in more senses than one. Never before in our recollection, since he was known as " Bradley's Boy " has Mitchell played such an unimportant part in a match of this magnitude ; whilst, on the contrary, Peall has never previously maintained such a brilliant form. During the course of the match Peall compiled 20 seperate breaks of over 100, numbering 8032, points, the chief of which were-1211 (the largest on record for a prize), 1085 (unfinished), 828, 665, ,552; 530, 501, 329, 266, 253, 269, 221, 205, and 199, while Mitchell's best were 813 566, and 317. It will thus be seen that Peall made all his points, with the excepti...
FISTICUFFING THE EGYPTIANS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
FISTICUFFING THE EGYPTIANS. The passengers and crew of an English steamer, which has just arrived in the Thames (says an English paper) were eye-witnesses, whilst at Port Said, of an extraordinary fracas between some English sailors and a number of Egyptian troops and sailors. The mail steamer had occasion to wait at Port Said for a short time, but had barely come to her moorings when her passengers noticed a boat leave the side of the British war vessel Alexandra, which was stationed there. The boat contained four sailors and one marine, and appeared to have left the vessel surreptitiously. It had got some distance from the Alexandra before the flight was discovered, and immediately signals were passed to the Egyptian vessel which was near them to stop the fugitives. A boat was lowered from the Egyptian vessel and manned by nine sail- ors and an officer. When the English j sailors saw that they were followed they : waited until their pursuers caine up to ' them, when with extraordi...

Cheap Gas for every Country Town. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
Cheap Gas for every Country Town. There is no doubting the -feiet that science has completely mastered the work of producing gas without the 'use bf coals. And it produces gas . brighter, cleaner,' and for inland towns, cheaper and safer than the ordinary coal gas, so that the value of this practical disooyery to country people is very great; The new patent, which has been strongly and unanimously recommended, is the Needles Patent, which can be applied so as to meet the requirements of only a small house, or enlarged to meet the wants of a town. For the introduction of this splendid invention, the Australian public are indebted' to Messrs. H. T. Smith and Co., 43 Sussex-street,' Sydney.

Lounging and Health. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
Lounging and Health. .' A .writer od health Terr justly condemns loung ? mg, in which a large number of persons indulge, as injurious to health. He says: "An erect bodily . attitude is of vastly more important to health - than is generally imagined. Crooked bodily positions, maintained for any length of time, are always injurious, whether in a sitting, standing or lying posture, whether sleeping or walking. To sit' with the body leaning forward on the stomach or to one side, with the heels elevated to a level with the head, is not only in bad taste, but exceedingly detrimental to health. It cramps the stomach, "presses the vital organs, interrupts the free motion, of the chest, and enfeebles the functions of the abdominal and théorie organs, and, in fact, un- balances the ' whole muscular system. Many children become slightly h amp-backed or severely round-shouldered by sleeping with the head raised on a high pillow. Wheo any person finds it easier to sit or stand, or walk or sleep ...
Beer Drinking and Heart Disease. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
Beer -Drinking and Heart V1 Disease. ".. The habitual consumption of beer in excessive quantities ' tends to hypertrophy by the . direct action of alcohol upon the heart, by the enormous amount of fluid introduced into tne body, and by the easily assimilated nutritive, constituents of the beer itself. Futher more such habits are. often associated with great bodily activity and at least relatively luxuriou* manner of life. The average weight of the normal heart in men is relatively greater, in Munich than elsewhere, a fact, without doubt, dependent upon the excessive consumption of beer in that city. The characteristic changes in the. for m of hypertrophy under consideration consist in the participation of both sides of the heart, and in an enormous increase in .the volume of the primitive muscular elements, with en- largement of the nuclei. Whether or not actual numerical increase in the muscular fibres takes pjûra cannot be known. Many individuals addicted to such excesses attain a...

Captain Harvey Temple, of the steamboat Connecticut, reporto that on'álate trip to Albang, in tbe uigbt, while in tbe vicinity of Percy's Beach, they were attacked by a swarm of beetles. The insects filled every part of the boat, so that the men were driven from their rooms. There was eo much excitement that thc engine was stopped.

Mexico's Wbmsai Bandit. \T; , La Çaramboda, the woman brigand, long a terror to. travellers in Mexico, is Ldead at last,' with a bullet in her. heart. -:Her operations extended over a number pf years, and were of the most daring descrip- tion. . For a long time the authorities found . it very difficult to trace or even to explain the crimes which she committed, for no one suspected that a woman was the guilty per-! son.. No two of her robberies were com-! mitted in the same manner. . Sometimes she was a passenger, and at other times she . -;.tfas with the bandits, and took part in the shooting if any was to be done. À woman of some personal charms when appropri- ately dressed, she was a fiend when about her business of murder and pillage, whom ' very few cared to encounter. Her male, assistants were many, and devoted. One of "her schemes,: it has ' been learned, was to bide her time in some town until she found one oi two men of means who were going .by the diligence to some distant...

The Cross and the Sword. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
The Cross and the Sword. In the Chapel of the Virgin the stone of the floor in the Holy Sepulchre is so worn that it is neces- sary to replace it, and there is a furious diBpnte be- tween the clergy of the Catholic and the Greek Churches as to which shall daim the honour of re- moving it and replacing it with a new one. Mean- while the Mahommedan soldiery have had to be called ont to keep order around the holy spot, and the French and Bussian Governments are pestered to interfere in the matter. Was there ever such a spectacle ? And need anybody wonder that millions of nineteenth century men, trained from childhood in the tenets of peace and goodwill of which that sepulchre is supposed to be a sacred reminder, looking upon a ring of grinning pagans with swords drawn to keep order in such place, turn away sick, and Bay a plague on all your churches. Does it not strike one that the time is about ripe once more for the lash of thongs to clear the temple of these blas- pheming money-chan...
