Savage Races. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 8 December 1888

Savage Races. At a meeting of working menat the drill-hall, Bath, on the evening of. September 8, Sir John Lubbock spoke of the mental condition and ideas of savage races. He said our empire 2 contained represontatives of almost everyraco of men and every stage of human progress. To understand their want and ideas was not only an intellectual exercise, but a political pro blem of great national importance. If we often found it far from easy to understand savages, they naturally had much greater difficulty in understanding us. Our weapons, tools, animals, in fact all our be longings, were at first a source of great wonder. An Australian tribe, for instance, -when they first saw a wagon drawn by oxen, were much puzzled as to what the oxen could he. It after wards appeared. that someo.thought they were spirits, becaus they had spears on their heads ; while others mainitained that they were the wives of the whitomen, because they carried the burdens, which amongstAustrallausis the speci...

A GHOST STORY. HOME'S FIRST VISION. (' D. D. moME: eIS LIFE A`ND ISSION," IY - &ADA L DOUGOAS LHOE.) Home wass"hs usual, with his friend Edwin in the woods. The two boys wore both great readers, and when either. of them had found anything in a book that interested him, it was sure to be communicated to the other. On this occasion-it was in April, 1845 or 1846-Edwin was full of a ghost story that he.had ,just read. The event it related to is associatedwith the history of a noble English family; and I am told:that it furnished Sir Walter Scott with the groundwork-of one of his ballads. A lady and her lover had mutually agreed that, if there were a life beyond this, the one Who died first should appear to. the. survivor.

The punch diffused a pleasing glow through my frame, the tobacco was lulling, the heat of the fire very saoothing, the hearty meal I. had eaten had also marvellously invigorated me, so that I found my mind in a posture to justly and rationally consider my condition, and to reson. out such probabilities as seemed to 'be attached to it. - First of all I reflected that by the usual .operation of natural laws this vast seat of ' thrilling and thick-ribbed ice' in which the schooner lay bound was steadily travelling to the no...
