A PUBLIC NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 17 April 1875

A PUBLIC NUISANCE. At the Fitzroy Police Court, on Thursday last, the Inspector of Nuisances for the Shire Council of Jika Jika proceeded against several parties for having created a nuisance, by depositing nightsoil in the neighbourhood of a populous locality.

ACETOPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 24 April 1875

ACETOPATHY.   A very extraordinaryi pamphlet was. published on January 1st, 1874, by F. Coutts & Co., of 34 Mecklenburgh Square, London. The title of this book refers to the spinal systeem of treatment through "Acetopathy", or the theory and mode of application of acetic acid to fever's, 'acute 'and chronic diseases and 76 letters, containing, the signatures, dates, and addresses of the writers, certify to the efficacy .of this new sytem for treating a variety of complaints. We should not have adverted to this subject, were it not for the favorable notice that has been accorded to it by the English press, and also for the numerous cures that have been effected by adoption of the treatment. Pope has told us that 'God never made his work for man to mend but his remark was directed against the physicians of QUEEN ANNE'S reign: and for ourselves, we are perfectly content to allow apothecaries to swallow their own drugs, chemists to practise their ingenuity in compou...
