humor. Stories of Lawyers. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 23 February 1887

Ibumov. Stories of Lawyers. Mr. — '? ? told a story about a lawyer tho ' other night which is a legal lunch classic, but which derived a great deal of novelty from a ' singularly humorous description of the hero. Ho said this lawyer was rather given to tho ' bottle, and, indeed, ho was in the habit oJ going on protracted sprees. A great many lawyers do. I know lawyers who go on a spree when they lose a case; nndl have known some to go on the spree every timo they 'got a fee, never knowing how long it might bo before thoy got another. But there is some- ? thing rather novel and original about the pro-' chvitics of Mr. ? 's hero. He never knew when he started on n spree where it would end. It always began in Sydney, but ho ? often sobered up in Melbourne, or Adelaide, otBrisbano, or somewhere miles from homo. - , He wa3 always prepared for it, however, and : whenever ho sobered up ho immediately hung ?' .- out his shingle nnd started practicing for enough money to take him back to Syd...

Boys' Column. A Trapper's Story. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 2 March 1887

'Boys' Column. A 'Fraypcr's Story. Years ago, while in St. Louis, I fell in with an old trapper by the name of Dick Samp son. Circumstances throw us much together and on one occasion he told me this story : Wo were awny off on tho Yellowstone one Fall, trapping beaver about as fast as we could pull thuir heads off, There were. throe of us— Tim Jones, Sam woodis nnd myself. Luck was with us tlmt time and no mistake. I never got off a pack so soon in all the years I've been on the plains. The boys declared that we should be rich men in a little while, unless our luck turned for tho worse, and Sam declared that if he was only as strong ns Sampson of old, ho would astonish tho boys when he -,''t back to the fort by the size of his pack. There wns but ono thing that worried us, and that was Injuns. We were so high up the river that we were at their mercy should they conio down upon us. But wo didn't let tho thought of them rob us of our sleep, or hinder us from piling up our jpack as fas...

Hereditary Diseases. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 2 March 1887

Hereditary diseases. A fallacious notion has somewhat orept in that an intellectual man must be below par physically, and that the one faculty is neces sarily cultivated at the expense of the other. The old proverb, vitins sana in corjiorc sano, has been flouted as an absurdity. So much, very briefly, for the first cause of race degene ration ; the second, and the one to which this paper would direct attention, is the in fluence of hereditary diseases. This factor has never received the attention it should have had at the hands of the writcra on social science. The races of which we have been speaking had little of this element to con tend with. The weaklings were either de liberately exposed and left to die, as in the case of tho Spartans, or if they attained maturity they were hold in such low esteem that they willingly kept in the background. Look for a moment at our modern civiliza tion and mark its diametrically opposite ten dency. K very day, hospitals are being erected to nur...

Look Out For Germs. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 2 March 1887

IjooIc Out For Germs. Those who have notnlrcady done eo, should immediately make a careful sanitary inspec tion of their premises. If there be n well it should be carefully examined. In the first place, see that its surroundings nre- perfectly wholesome. A ces3-pool or vault within twenty rods of the well is a source of greater danger than a powder magazine within the same distance. If either exists on the pre mises, remove it at once. Have the well cleaned out. It ia possible that somo rat or other small animal may have fallen into it accidentally and been drowned, and is now undergoingdecompositionandcontaminatins tho water. This is an accident which very often happens to frogs, toads, and earth worms. See that your well is so protected at the top that accidents of this sort will be impossible. The top of the well for several feet down should bo carefully bricked up, the bricks being well laid in cement; and tho whole should be covered over so-tightly as to prevent any accident of...
