WHAT TEARS ARK MADE OF. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 21 January 1898
WHAT TEARS ARE MADE OP. It is said that people sometimes weep for joy as well as for sorrow, but such cases are rare. The principle element in the composition of a tear, however shed, is water. The other elements are salt, soda, phosphate of lime, phos phate of soda, and mucus, each in small proportions. A dried tear, seen through a microscope of good average power, presents a peculiar appearance. The water, after evaporation, leaves behind it the saline ingredients, which amalgamate and form themselves into lengthened cross-lines, and look like a number of minute fish-bones. The tears are secreted in what is called the ' lachrymal glands,' situated over the eyeball and underneath the lid. The contents of these glands are carried along and under the inner surface of the eyelids by means of six or seven very fine channels, and are discharged a little above the cartillage supporting the lid. The discharge of tears from the lachrymal glands is not occasional and accidental, as is commo...
KISSING. A RHAPSODY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 21 January 1898
KISSING. A RHAPSODY. Like many other things in this mun dane sphere of ours, the noble and ancient art of kissing has become shorn of much of its pristine loveliness and delicacy ; and to-day half the kissing one sees or hears done is very bucolic in delivery and receipt, the actual osculation reminding one very much of the crash into a drafting-yard of a lot of wild cattle and the attitude of the performers giving one the impres sion that they fear an earthquake. Adam and Eve, no doubt through eating the forbidden fruit, were not long in discovering this beautiful and pleasurable act, and availed themselves muchly of it. But history is silent on this important matter. We can there fore but regret the misfortune, and make the best of it, by practising the little deed in a becoming manner. There are many kinds of kisses. There is that of a fond parent to a loved child about to set out on a journey, perhaps the first from home. This kind of kiss is sincere and holy, and in giving it t...

TALES OF OUTLAWS. [CoFTnianT.] VIVID AND REALISTIC PICTURES tSpk PAST. ? «-.».-» ? Selected from the Diary and the Correspondence of an Old Colonist. THE GRIM CAPE OUT LAWS. PART VII. For more than six months after this the fugitives remained in their wild and gloomy retreat, and several times each day they ascended the cliffs to see if a friendly sail might be in sight. On three occasions' they saw vessels pass either to the south or the north, but they were always too far distant to have attention attracted. One wild morning in the latter end of July Ayers had climbed the high cliff to take the usual observation, when looking below on the beach — or a small portion of sand which ran be tween the rocks — he was astonished to see a man apparently looking for shell fish. His appearance, even as seen from the cliff, was miserable in the ex treme. A few tattered rags of clothing and the remnant of a kangaroo skin covered ins snivenng oody, ana trie bitter sleet which was sweeping aroun...
