How it was Done. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 25 December 1880

How it was Done. Burlington Hawkeye. PROFESSOR PROCTOR explains away the Lot's wife miracle by proving that she was only buried under a meteoric shower of sodium. How this simplifies it. This brings it out of the fanciful realm of tho supernatural, nnd places it within tho credible sphere of evcry-day events. Wo always had very grave doubts about tlio pillar of salt business, but when scienco kindly explains that the poor woman was simply buried nnder a meti.-orii! fall of sodium, then wo can readily accept it. 'llu-ro is nothing singular, remarkable, or unusual about that. Very few people are there indeed, who do not know of hundreds of instance's i.i which their friends and ecnuaintancea Imvo been cnuglit out in n'shower of sodium'and buriod. . It is wonderful, indeed, how science" simplifies! the ' wiraclo?!

Juggernaut Disqualified. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 25 December 1880

Juggernaut Disqualified. THE Times of India states that the car of Juggemant, one of the most noted symbols of heathenism, was not dragged through the streets of Pu[?] this year, as usual, on the fjfch of July. The cause of this omission seoms to be involved in some mystery, but the natives represent it ns "an net.'of unpardonable negli gence on tho part of meddling Govern ment officials." The omission is tho more prominent, because, according to tlio religions'law or custom, if tlio car he not drawn to tho Goachidi Mhndir on the ninth day of the car festival, twclvo years must again elapse before it is again used. We may hope thnt beforo the' twelve years shall have passed, the eyes of tho peoplo will be sufficiently opened to this senseless act of idolatry to sup press th? custom for over.

Dunolly and other Land Sales Thebe is much ground for satisfaction' at the result of the esalea held by Mr. Jaino? Hutchison, at the. Bbyol Hotel on Wednesday, last. The attendance wae very good, and the indefatigability of the auctioner, kept up for'honrs, was crowned with signal success. Pew townspeople anticipated such a result as the following ? details disclose. It is plain that good agricaltural arid grazing land near the town is valuable, - and the result of this sale may perhaps lead other largo proprietors to sell out likewise.

Important to Free Selectors. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 25 December 1880

Important to Free Selectors. IN reply to a letter from Mr. George Martyr, land agent, Goulburn, to the Department of Lands, the following im- portant answer has )says the Southern Argus) been returned from the condi- tional sales branch. The reply is impor- tant inasmuch as its purport will save selectors many long rides at inconvenient times. Up to the present time selectors making additional selections had to apply personally, and as only one selection could   be made each land-day, selectors had often to ride 100 miles each way to make four or five selections. The reply per the Lands Department will obviate this-:—" If a conditional purchaser has taken up a selection under the Act of 1875, under the 13th clause, he need not attend when making additional purchases, because he is presumed to have been 16 years old when making the original purchase, and   it is to ascertain this fact that he in re- quired to attend in the first instancy but may make an addi...
