CURRENT TOPICS. THE BRIDGE ACROSS THE FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 30 January 1875

| CURRENT TOPtCS. THE BBIDGE ACROSS THE FITZBOY. The re-opening of the bridge question has occurred opportunely- There are possibly those among us who differ with the north-side people in their ''wif of proceeding, but there is, we believe, no one in Rockhampton who does not , sympathise with the object sought to be j attained. II on its own merits, the : bridge can be secured without imposing Ian additional burden upon the public i revenue, and without jeopardising river improvement and railway extension, we 'are sure there is not one intelligent ! person in the district who will oppose 1 its construction- On the contrary, it is ' j not too much to assert that the project, 1 under such circumstances, would have 1 miivexssi support. j The probabilities are, however, that the : private guarantee project will tall through, i Those who have been concerned in i giving bonds tell us that there is an important difference between talking; k- about and «^T''*i'g such documents- ?

TORRES STRAIT MAIL BEE VICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 30 January 1875

TOEBES STRAIT HUH, SERVICE. The arrival in Keppel Bay of the fine steamship Brisbane, 4oar days earlier than her appointed rime, is a fortunate circumstance. Just now, when New Zealand is negociating to take advantage of the Torres Strait service, tardiness on me Company's part would be fatal to the proposal; while, on the other hand, the practical demonstration that the Company's boats can save firar days tell strongly in their favour. As is well known, the present contract is for a a nine-knot service, and the New Zealand people contemplate arranging for an eleven-knot service, which would at once mnl»» tne route valuable to all the colonies for mail conveyance, and a favourite one for passengers. But mere would be another advantage in the pro posed rearrangement Direct steam communication between Queensland and New Zealand would be opened up, and that would be followed by the establishment of bade re lations conferring reciprocal benefits.

A Balloon Wedding. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 30 January 1875

A Balloon Wedding. (Hem Tori Tima). If thai errjxaently veracious historian, M. Jnles Veme, had oeen in the oJy of Cincinnati, Ohio, at -five o'clock on the afternoon of October 19, [874, be might have obtained materials for a new and thrilling romance. He wonid hare found himself in a throng of fifty thousand persons, each of whom was intently gazing skyward at a receding balloon, which bore -within its basket a bride groom and bride, who proposed to be wedded above the douds. These eccentric people had doubtless ranged in imagination over all the fields of previous queer and unusual wedding trips. They had probably heard of Jhe strange couple whn scaled the Righi, there to seal their vows of afiectioa, and of ihat adventurous pair wbo ? datmuessly ascended the mightiest of the Pyramids, and there, with Heaven knows how many centuries looking down, and wiLu myriads of Arabs looking up and howling for ' backshish,' bound themselves in holy bands.

Dr. TjndaSl on the Origin of Typhoid Ferer. itbrndeOa- Xmmur, Nor. 10.1 Professor Tyndaix takes advantage of awakened public attention to the ravages rjcodnced by epidemic diseases to *&**** his views on the origin of typhoid fever. The importance of the subiectheremarks, is shown by the feet that this pest sends ' 15,000 of the inhabitants of these islands yearly to the grave, and causes 150,000 to pass through its protracted miseries. The nn^n1*'^! controversy turns on the question: Can typhoid fever be generated anew? Is it produced by the decom nostion and putrefaction of animal and vegetable substances, or most the fflatt»»r producing it have had previous contact with any infected body? In adopting die bitter view, Professor Tyndall declares that he has been won over by 'the dear and powerful writings of William Sudd, joined to those of Che *-&fbntfil Pasteur.' Xt was, in feet, Dr. Budd's treatise on 'Typhoid Fever,' which excited the Professor's tnfyrpgfr in ri...

These cases have been tried mainly in cases of consumption, but one or two where mere had been serious loss of blood by hemorrhage. The operations have been performed by Drs. Proegler, F. C. Hotz, and T. WSde, all Genaan physicians, and are die first made in die country, though die remedy is not new. It has been resorted to at various periods in Europe daring a century or two. The process is described as follows by a writer in the InterOcam, who was present at one of me operations : — ' A ham-shaped board is obtained, the surface of which is so constructed as to receive, plate-like, the limbs and body of die lamb.
