Water at Meals. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 23 January 1894

Water at Meals. 1 Opinions differ as to tho free ingestion oi water at meal times, but tbo view most generally reocirol is probably that it dilutes tho gastria juico and bo retards digestion. Apart from tha faot that a moderate delay in tho procoss is by no mo&ns n disadvantage, as Sir William Ilobcrts has shown in his ex planation ot flic popularity of tea and coffee, it ia more than doubtful whether such e-ffjofc is iu reaiivy prooucca.. yvnen ingested (luring meals, water may do good by waging out tba digested food and by exposing the undi gested part more thoroughly to tho action of the digestivo formonts. Pepsin is a caialyptio body, and a given quantity will work almost indefinitely, provided pepstones aro removed as they are formed. Tho good offsets of water, drunk frcoly before meals, has, how ever, another bcneQoial result — it washes away tho mucus whloh is secreted by the mucous membrane during Ibe intervals of repose, and favours peristalis of the whole alimentar...

How Soil Was Made [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 23 January 1894

How Soil Was Made Prof. Agassiz saya that all the matt rials on which agriculture depends are decomposed rocks, not so muob rocks that underlie the soil, but tboEe on the surface and brought from considerable distance, and ground to powder by the rasp of glaziers. The penetra tion of water into the rooks, frost, running water and baking suns havo done something, but ice vastly more. In a former ago tho whole of the United States was covered with ica several inouBana lect ttiicK, and this ice moving from north to Eouth by the attraction of tropical warmth, or pressing weight of ico or snow behind, ground tha rocks over which it pnsafd into the paste we call the Boil, Thescmasses of ico can be tracked, as surely bb the game is tracked by the hunter, imong the Alps, glaciers are Btill in pro gress. Tho atones and rocks ground and polishad by tho glaciers can easily be dis tinguished from those soratcbcd by running water, Tho angular boulders found in tho meadows and terraces ol our riv...

The Counsel of a Loving Friend. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 23 January 1894

The Counsel of a Loving Friend. Whilo we cannot too strongly prize the quality of self-reliance, which is bo highly valued to-day, we lose a great deal when wo allow it to crowd out tha faithful counsel of a loving friend. This counsel ia the one part of friendship that we imagine we can most easily dispense with. We prize our friend's affiotion,' sympathy and good fellowship, ar.d ato often eager for his help in various ways ; but when he otters oounsel,. however much we IUUJT unit it., no ny. »u louujr luai uo «3 assuming a superiority of judgment, or intruding upon our affairs, and we either openly resent or silently disregard it. The aunscquenco is that our friends shrink from offering what iB eo highly esteemed, and modern friendship is thus bereft of ono of its most. valuable results. It is true, that advice ot a certain kind is plentiful and cheap ; it is often given without wisdom, discretion or tact, and it is deserving of no better recep tion than it receives. But tho coun...

Is Mrs Maybrick Innocent? [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 26 January 1894

Is Mrs Maybrick Inno . cent? In t,hb trial of Mrs Maybrick in England for niurdur it trans pired that, arsenic was dis covered in food preparations in the house, notably by glycerine used by the patient. Mr Bird, head of the wholesale chemical works of Messrs Bird and Sons, of Birmingham, recently stated that a short time prior to the death of .Tames Maybrick a lot , of glycerine was offered to his firm by a German manufac turer. Nothing is purchased for Messrs Bird and Sons' business without being analysed ? by an analyst in the employ of the firm, so tlio sample of gly cerine was sent to the labora tory, where, to Mr Bird's sur f)rise, it was found to contain a arge proportion of arsenic, and of course was rejected. It was more than a probability that a large proportion of the gly cerine rejected hy Mr Bird was sold in Birmingham, Manches ter, Liverpool, and other large towns in the Midlands to chemists who would neither have the time nor the applian ces ncccssary to test the gly ...

Mining on Private Property. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 26 January 1894

Mining on Private Pro perty. At an important meeting held under tho auspices of the Mining on /Private Prop rty League, Sydney, recently, which was crowded, Mr It. Atkinson Prire moved the first resolution, which was as follows : — ' That in the opiuion of this meeting the Mining on Private Lands Bill- (being a. non-party mea sure) should be passed into law 'imme- diately upon the reassembling of Parliament, so ns to provide employ ment for the people and advance the mining industry.' He said that the emphatic voice of such a meeting as bad gathered in that hall that night would teach a lesson to trimming and truckling politicians. (Cheers.) It also gave the lio to the slander that had been repoated that honest men could not get a fair hearing from a public meeting in Sydney. Tho sym pathy with which tbey had listened to the remaiks of tbe chairman showed that when men were advocating an honosfc policy of legislation they had the sympathy of a Sydney-audience, As showing tbe importa...

Parliamentary Contentiousness. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 26 January 1894

Parliamentary Oonten- | tiousness. The only way in which it seems pos sible to describe tho present stato of Parliamentary' parties, is that they aro thoroughly contentious and ' demoral ised, and it seems hopeless to expect from them any exhibition of disinter ested patriotism, or personal sacrifice of party feeling, or political grudges, for the Bako of the general good. 'We have not much to say in defence of the action of the Government. They have been undecided and indecisive. But on the other hand, the various ir regular parties which make up the sum total of tho Opposition, have shown an amount of what the Americans call pure 'cuBsednoss' in regard to the general welfare of the colony, which is by no means creditable to them. If they honestly wished to ouBt the pre sent Government, why was it not done' months ago. Thoy have been' strong enough all through if united. But, without any serious intention of throwing qut Sir George Dibbs and his Government, a system of party warfar...

The Show Season. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 26 January 1894

The Show Season. Two great and very important seasons are about to commence. One is tbe parliamentary, the other the agricultural show business. Both of these aro likely to be valued by the services which thev render. We can not say to wbat extent- the parliamen tary sessions will reach, but we have Dot ore us tue tact tnac between this date and the etM of April there are to be held 43 agricultural shows. Each show should give a fair reflection of its district's condition. When stripped of its pleasurable surroundings such as the meeting of old friends, the op portunities tor social intercourse, and various picnic characteristics, the show appears as nothing more important than the ordinary school audit. It is expected to give some indication of the progress which is ' being made. W e have on several occasions advocated the service of reporting committees to prepare papers on the most important sections of each show, so that such papers could give subjects for discus sions at the or...
