SLEEPING POWDERS AND NARCOTICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
SLEEPING POWDERS AND NARCOTICS. It is hard to lie awake night after night, counting the hours, but avoid the uso of sleeping powders, unlcas, indeetd, your physician absolutely orders them. The narcotic, however inanocont, the sedative, however subtle, is in its way a crutch, and the iuse of a crutch is always the ncknow ledgment of inlirmity. Furthermore, a crutch is liable to lnmp, or to slip, or to iprove untrltworthy when most needed. In this wholo lmatter of insomnia, the wisest way is to light the wakeful fiend by lying calmly slill with eyes shub, and hands and feet stirless, if you can. To be genuinely tired by exerciso in the open air, to deotrac the blobd froni a too active brain by a light relomst before going to bed, and, above all, not to fret and worry are better remedies than the whole range of the apothecary's shop affords. An insidious and dangerous habit is sometimes formed by those who are a little run down and have become nervous and li.Lless ; they fancy they ne...

JEROME K. JEROME ON. GIVING PRESENTS. Oe afternoon, as I sat sipping tea in on ailrated bread shop, I overheard female oince behind me. "1 suppose we shall bave to 'yle hr sonacthh?ine." aid tono first voice. - O, Is san't," retorted the other, more cheerfully, "I shall write her a letter." I know that letter. It will bubble over with generous sentiments. It will enumerato thirty-seven boneautiful and expen rive things that the writer " thought of " giving, and seventy-two reasons why she Ilidn't. It will imply that fiomr one end of London to the other there was to be found nothing ' nice enough " to be bestowed upon no well-beloved a person as the rceipt crt of the letter; but will suggest that in other places and happier times some gift worthy to express the writcr's feelings may perhalps be lighted upon ; and it will conclude with, " And so, dear, you must take the will for the dectd, and, with ' fodest' love, &c., &c."

Health. The Sightseer's Headache. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
1healtlt. The Sightseer's Headache. Or the lighter penpllies which pleasure en. tails, none probably is more widely known or persistently endured than the sightscor's headasho. It is nature's tax on the comfort of that great body of busy idlers to which we belong at some time or the other. Is ei on demic amongst the frequenters of museums, picture gallericr and xhbibitions. The very general prevalence of this description of headache, and its independence in many in stances of any vitiation of atmosphere, teach us to look for its cxplanation in other causes. The tfJirt of mind implied in long.continued observation, even though this does not in volve the strain of study, has probably an appreciable, though a very secondary, iunlu ence. Fatigue certainly has an important share in its production ; but it is with most persons rather fatiguesof muscle gtan of brain. The maintenance of the upright posture during several hours of languid locomotion, the varied and frequent movements of the ...

ARE WOMEN BRAVE? [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
ARE WOMEN BRAVE? TIrE question has times out of number been raised, whether the palm for the higher degree of courage should be awarded to tile male or to thie femalo sex. This is a qulestion whicllh cannot be answered off lhand ; for if we take a number of instances in which courage has been shown, we find on anialysis that they differ widely in the r attributes. Blroadlly speaking. we find two: distinct types of courage-physical and moral : which are, however, frequently blended in varying I oportlons. By the former is meltt the courage of a lion, whose natural instinct loads him to rush upon his foes ; by the latter, that of a person oho fully realises the risks he will run, or t the trouble h will bring upon him. self (the word is uscd generically, and applies eumally to woment), and yet per. forms tie cnt. One who is conslantly exposed to risks leading an active out.door life, has naturally more presence of mind and decision than one who has lead a home life, and never before s...

EARLY ATLANTIC STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
EARLY ATLANTIC STEAMERS. IT was in 1839 that the success attending Wilcox and Anderson'snow entertpriseo to the Pleninsula led the admiralty to seek for e tenders for carrying the mails across the Atlantic. The circular fell into the hands t of Samutel Cunard, then the East India" a Company's agent at Halifax, whosinco 1815 t had been carrying the mails at his own risk between B'oston, Newfoundland, and Ber. muda. This new transatlantic mail-carrying Y was but a development of his old business, and to enter on it ho wanted calital, and so he came to Lon'don. Melvill, the secretary oa f the East India Company, sent him to a RobertNapier, theClyde engineer, whohad built many a good? craft for John Company, and Napier introduced him to George Burns, who in time introduced him to his partner, David MacIver, of Liverpool, who was anything but a sanguine man. 1 That the way of the world is a way of surprises was never better shown than in the story of the Cunard Line.

RODNEY IRRIGATION AND WATER SUPPLY TRUST. -4-- THE PARISH OF MURCHISON. A deputation from the residents of the parish of Murchison was introduced t- o the Minister of Water Supply on Tuesday last by Mr Sternberg, M.L.C., and Mr Webb, Mr T. Murphy, and Mr O'Neil, M.L.A.'s. It asked that some relief should he granted to the land owners in that parish from the rating of the Rodney Irrigation and Water Sup ply Trust, owing to the parish having been included in the area of the trust against their wishes. When it was proposed to form that trust the resi dents objected to their inclusion on the ground that the water channels would be too low to be availed of for irrigation purposes, and that they would' be of little service to them for a domestic and stock supply. Mr Deakin, who was then Minister of Water Supply, how ever, included them tentatively, believing that he had power to excise thenm from the trust should they still object to their inclusion. They persisted in their opposition to ...
