No case of death by accident or neglect has ever occurred in a Canard ship. Mr. Stuart's speech on the Civil Service Bill is one of the best he ever delivered. Plain, comprehensive, and unadorned facts and principles. Now if O'Connor bad had this opportunity-but then, we can't always have sculptured sentences, even from Dan.

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. Babbits and Disease. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. . ? Babbits and; Disease. A Melbourne telegram states that rabbits have been caught at Woodend-which show signs of tuberculosis. It is not pro- bable that everybody knows what that means. We certainly are not alarmed about the sufferings bf the rabbit, and should be very glad to leam they were stricken by leprosy if they would only dis- appear. But this is the point. Babbit catch- ing is now the regular pursuit of hundreds of trappers, and week by week thousands of these animals are carted into Melbourne and used for food. The diseases of animals and how they are communicated is but little understood, but there are known in- stances of where the most virulent diseases have been traced to the consumption of de- cayed fish, and diseased pork. Each ani- mal is peculiarly hable to have its own parasite. These enter the human stomach and find their way into the tissues from which no medicine can dislodge them. We don't profess to say what peculiarity there may be in tc...

Legal Reform. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884
Legal Beform. Some people are jubilant over the establishment of a third court which may deal with the vast ar- rears of civil cases that have accumulated-mad- dening litigants and terrifying the judges. We Bee nothing to be thankful for in the adoption of one of the simplest and most obvious provisions conceiv- able. The first purpose of Government is to secure the rapid and certain administration of justice, and instead of being thankful for this paltry concession to public wants, there is much more grounds for exasperation that something has not been done be- fore. In every large private establishment arrears of work are disposed of instantly by increasing the staff. In governmental business, however, we have had for years a sort of slovenly a dawdling, see one Chancery business on a small scale. Already the " law's delays," have cost us in time and annoyance a hundred times more than would the appointment of an extra judge or two. But there will never be a radical law reform unt...
Cricket and Cash. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884
CricketandCash. An English paper is very rough on the Australian Cricketers, for sticking oat for gate money. The Fhüadelphian Cricketers they say are the gentle, manly men, and play for nothing, while our boys play for the cash. It strikes us it does not lie in the months of English or Americans , to complain of our turning sport into a money-making game. We have had samples of " gentlemanly "^sporting here from both countries before to-day, and for down- right hungry avarice, they certainly take the pre- cedence over boys. They are none of them wealthy men, and most of them poor and depen- dent on moderate salaries for their livelihood. Why should they travel half over the world and afford millions of people an exhibition of skill in a gaine intensely popular, and not be paid for it ? As well complain of Irving not packing a house for the love of Shakespeare, instead of for money. The labourer is worthy of his hire, and if the public patronise the sport, it is because they think t...

Hints to Bathers. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884
Hints to Bathers. 1. Do not take a bath immediately after a meal; from two to three hours are necessary for diges- tion. If from mental or physical labour you feel exhausted, rest before going into the water. 2. "Cooling off" while undressed is contrary to all good sense. Cool off before undressing. Never leave the skin unprotected. If the action of the heart and the respiration have* become normal, after exercise, a warm or even a moist skin need not prevent you from plunging into the bath; but, on the contrary, it enables you to enjoy your bath all the more. 3. Do not stand still in the water to talk, nor leave it to rest. Keep moving after you have entered the water, and if you feel tired- from; swimming, go and dress yourself immediately. Ladies, particularly, should remove their wet clothes promptly. 4. Time-More bathers are, perhaps, injured by remaining in the water too long than by any other cause. By overtaxing the physical energies reaction ÍB rendered slow and imperfect. ...

The Beauties of the Nepean. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884
The Beauties of the Nepean. It cannot bo too often noted in the Press that tho pick of the land subdivided on the Parramatta Biver during the last four or five years has been timely purchased by investors from the country dis- tricts, and those investments have, one and all, turned out in a first-class way, the average rise in price being not less than between 25 and 3D per cent. And now that public attention has been directed to that most picturesque and never failing river, the beautiful Nepean, investors, both in the metropolis andtheconntry districts,areawakening to the advantages of the splendid soil, situation and climate of the district. As a consequence the in- vestments in building sites, during the last few months have been extremely large, and hundreds of business.people in the metropolis are buying and building in that direction to such an extent that the district in the course of a year must be the residential suburb of Sydney. Thanks to the enterprise of a well known S...
