A CHINESE DWARF. (Ibid.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 26 June 1869
A CHINESE DWARF. flbitl. J Tue Cliinose have boon beforoll and with us in all our inventions-printing1, artillery, aerostation, chloroform. Only tho discovery, which in Europe at once takes life and birth, and becomes a prodigy and a wonder, remains a chry salis in China, aud is preserved in a death-like state. China is a museum of embryos. Since wo are in China, let us remain thore a moment to observe.,ft pecu liarity. In China,- from time, imme morial, they have, preserved a certain refinement of industry and art. It is tlio art of moulding a living man. Thoy take a child, two or three years old, put him in a porcelain vase, more or less grotesque, which is made with out top or bottom to allow egress, for tho head aud feet. During the day the vaso is set upright, and at night is laid down to allow tho child to sleep. . Thus the child thickens without grow ing taller, filling up with his com pressed flesh aud distorted bonos tho reliefs in tho vaso. This development in a bottlo con...

HUMAN PLAYTHINGS. (From Victor IIago1 s "Par Ordrcdn Ro'u) A CHILD destined to bo a plaything for mon-such a thing has oxislo.l ; snch. a thing exists even now. In simple and savage times such a thing consti tuted an especial ti'ade. The . 17th century, called the groat century, was of these times. It was a century very Byzantine in tone. It combined cor rupt simplicity with delicate ferocity ; a curious variety of civilisation. A tiger making pretty mowes. Madame do Sevigno minces on tho subject of the faggot and the wheel. This cen tury traded a good deal in children. Flattering historians have concealed the sore, but have divulged the remedy, Vincent do Paul. In order that a human toy should succeed, ho must be taken early. Tho dwarf must be fashioned when young. Wo play with childhood. But a woll formod child is not very amusing; a hunchback is bettor fun. Hence grew an art. Thero wore trainers who took a man and made him an abortion ; they took a faco and made a muzzle ; thoy s...

Aititi who have mado the ..long1 voyage from England to the sunny shores of Australia,; look back .to that period ?either as one of the happiestor the most miserable in their lives. To many it was tho most delightful of pleasnro trips, associated with brilliant hopes, fresh feelings and pleasures, and the first glimpse of a new world of wonders. To many more' it was a season of sorrow, of hardship and peril, associated with memoriosnot worth recalling, the sad introduction to a futuro more bitter oven than tho past. In cither caso the event remains marked indelibly upon tho memory, in colours bright or dark according to tho colour of the career in which it was the first irrevocable stop. It is impossible, therefore, not to feel some interest in tho stoi-y of those .who arc doing now what wo once did-who, in their turn, aro scoking in "fr...
