CHOOSING A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 11 April 1877

CHOU'Ihti A WIFE. Mr. Jenkins eat out upon the porch enjoying his usual evening smoke.- The sedative effet of his favorite weed, and the tranquil aspect of the surround. ing objects, gave a placid expreession to the bronzed feature., whose hard outlines indicated the deter mined ard somewhat arbitrary bias of his character. This, however, changed to a look of disiatifsaction, as, on glaucing over to a small modest cottage, a few rods distant, he spied his son Robert leaning over the gate converoing with a young girl, who, if not "as beantiful :as poets' dreams," yet whose fair brow, soft blown eyes, and sunny Emile; made her face very pleasant to look uipon. The young man turned away with evident Irelnct ance, and .walking towards the house, soon reached the place where his father eat.

:HOSPITALS FOR CONTAGIOUS A meeting of the Central Board of Health was held on Friday, when, according to the Age, the following matter was dealt with : The circumstances connected with the sus pected case"of small-pox which was recently isolated in the Royal Park brought very markedly forward the danger to which the whole community is exposed through the absence of any place to which cases of such infectious or contagious. disease could be taken immediately on discovery. In the present'instance, although the local board of health" for the city acted with the most praiseworthy: promptitude. as' soon as the case came under their notice, much valuable time was unavoidably lost before the patient could be isolated through there being at the moment no building available for the pur pose. Fortuniately this delay did not in the present case lead to any spread of infection, and all danger of the spread of' the` disease from' tlhe Bangalore"mniay now be 'said to have passed ; but such loss ...
