Rhoda stood quite still, and lifted her face towards the millions of stars that spangled the firmament above. It was a still, ftosty, October night, with a frozen fragrance of dead leaves in the air, and the gibbone moon hung low on the edges of the horizon, shedding a spectral light on the bleak land scape. Mr. Gordon had come bome late from the market that night, jingling the money in his pockets. He had walked into the little winged room, where a log or two burned on the hearth, and a dip candle only made darkness visible.

According to the evidence given by plaintiff it appeared that on the evening of the 2nd inst. defendant returned home in an intoxicated con- dition and began to accuse his wife of having been to the hotel to send him home during his absence. He then commenced beating her, struck her   several times, and dragging her into the bedroom, kicked her.

Ambergris. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 October 1890

Asasbergris. The word ambergris is French, and signi fies gray amber; but by whom or when first applied to this marine phenomenon we have not been able to disc ,ver. The scientific explanation of the nature of ambergris is that it is the product of some disease in the sperm whale analogous to gall stones. It is found sometimes in the intes tines of the creature, but more frequently is found, after expulsion, floating on the sur. face of tropical seas. It floats in masses which have a speckled gray appearance, and mixed with which are generally found some remnants of the known food of whales. Tie be-t quality of ambergris is soft and waxy, but it is said to be uniform in color. The streaky or marked spcimens are pre ferred. It is opaque and inflammable, re markably light as to specific gravity, as may be understood from its always keeping the surface, and is rugged to the touch. Most of what comes into the market is found near the Bahama Islands, but it is also found at the Molucoas ...
