Alleged New Cancer Cure. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Alleged New Cancer Cure, There is unusual interest felt on that unpleasant subject, cancer, at the pro sent moment; an interest due, in part, to the death of Mr Campbell from this pain ful disease, but dun also to the unpleasant fact that cancer is decidedly spreading fast under Australian skies. Whether the Mattei system, or the Broswn-Sequard remedy, will really cure cancer we do not venture to say; but a now cancer cure, with some pre tossons to scientific authority, has made its appearance in America. The physicians attached to the New York Cancer Hospital officially report (says the "Lonibon Standard ") that the inocula tion of erysipelas streptococcus into malignant tumors hba nroved curative in 25 per cent. of the cases of carcinoma which have been tried, and in 10 per cent. of the cases of sarcoma, and that it is especially applicable to cases in which operations cannot take place, but is generally useful. Caution is advised in the resort to these remedies pending further cl...

JOHN RUSKIN'S ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

JOHN RUSKIN'S ROMANCE. John Ruskin did a strangely wayward thing when he consented to get married. Hie did a most erratic and, to the public, a most inexplicable thing when he arranged for hie. divorce. lie had acoepted some of the loftiest traditions about womanhood that men some times read and talk about, and helooked for his idcal companion. One nieht he met her in the drawingroom of a London friend, who, without knowing it, had brought the young lady to meet theeves of the great writer. It was a June night : he was 35, and she looked like a G reek goddess. He was dazzled. She was a tall, graceful girl of 19, with a face and figure as faultless as one of the statues of old. No one ever expected Ruskin to fall in love, and he did not. She was pocr, needed a home and its comforts, and so they were married. Their wedded life, says a writer in the New York "Advertiser," was peaceful, friendly, kindly to the highest degree, but there was not a spark of affection to en lighten their ex...

South Africa and Its Gold Mines. --o H. W. Bayliss. of London, one of the lead. ingmarnufacturersof railroad iron and general supplies in the world, who has recently been on a visit to South Africa, has just filled the largest contract ever made with any railroad -that of furuishiong an enormous quantity of supplies for the Cape Town Railroad, of which some 3000 miles are now in operation. He says South Africa as a whole reminds him much of America, and parts of that country are very similar to California. Cape Town is, as regards its keen, bracing ocean breeze, much like San Francisco, while Natal is in its surroundings and climate very similar to Santa Barbara. Iort Elizabeth is the Liverpool of Scuth Africa. It is a pushing, wide-awake country. The Dutch are very industrious and are wonderful money-makers, but they are not very well mtormed and they live poorly. "The gold mines," he sail, " are un. doubtedly very great, the richest gold mines are not at Johannesburg, but off fart...

Sensorial Illusions. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Sensorial Illusions. What are we to believe a supernatural ap. pearance It is a most difficult point to decide. Nicolai, the bookseller of Berlin, was for months troubled by spectral appear ances of all shades, shapes, and almost colors: some the likenesses of dead and some of living friends; others strangers to him. From being frightened, he became used to them, and, in fact, rather lonely without them. There were horse, dogs, cats, men and women. The latter presently began to talk to each other and to him. They even suited their voices-to his ear-in the cos vereations of his real friends. Nicolai, who was apparently in gooe health, was escorted in this way from New Year's Day till 20th April, 1701. ??e doctors, who were convinced that the ghosts were the result of a disordered system, treated him vainly. Surely here was a case beyond even the peradventure of a doubt. But presto I comes an unbelieving medico, and with fiendish ingenuity bethinks him of leeches. They were applied, a...

Hair-dressers in Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Hair-dressers in Parliament. A hair-dresser in Parliament is no new thing to the colony of Victoria. West Melbourne was, at one time-before Dr. Maloney was heard of-represented by a professor of the tonsorial art. The new French Chamber in:!ndes a hair dresser. Says the "Westminster Gazette" : One of the most interesting of the new French deputies is M. Chauvin who has been returned at St. Penis. He was at one time the e wigaker of the Comedie Franeaise, and some of the actors and actresses of that theatre even now will not allow themselves to be "made up" by any one else. He is about 30 years of age, and has done somne useful work in estab lishing early closing among hairdressers In Paris and in founding various trade societies, as well as an international training school for hairdressers. He has expressed his intention of not giving up his business for politics. He will attend to his customers in the morning, he says, and the Palais Bourbon in the afternoon. In the even ing he wil...

Mr James, whose real name was Itelasco, was born in 1839, and t commenced his theatrical career very early in t life under Chas. Kean'smanagement. When I some 30 years of age he made a success of the I character of Zekiel Homespun in The Heir at Law, and the reputation then gained of 1 being a finished comedian has never left him.

Mr. Gladstone's Eloquence. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Mr. Gladstone's Eloquence. Mr G. W. Smalley, though very strongly opposed to M.r Gladstone's present politics, admits in the ".New York Tribune," that Ils eloquence remains un impaired. He says :-Fr Mr r Gladstone's range of vision and elevation of tone are what they have ever been. His authority over the House is what it was-I mean not over his own party merely, but over the whlle House. Neitheropponentsnorfrtends can resist the spell lie lays upon thenw. Hie is often sophistical-perhaps always and srometimnes insincere, for how is it possible to take in such quick succession such a vast variety of views abso lutely irreconcilable ' Yet he advances sophistries with the air of St. Paul bent on converting the world, and his insinceri ties never seem such at the moment ; perhaps never to himself any more than to others. It must not be supposed, however, remarks " Westminster," that Mr Smalley is altogether pleased with the Prime Minister. On the contrary, he has discovered a ' great d...

Country Roads [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Country Roads I'm not a poet, by no means, I am only yeoman Black; But I am tired of country roads That almost break one's back; And I believe I'll state my mind In cobbling sort of verse My subject is so rough, you see, My poetry can't be worse. I live six miles or so from town, Upon a tidy farm. Miranda Jane, my wife, is smart, Possesses many a charm; We've rid together to and fro For years, to church and store, Though Christians, we've by roads been riled A thonsaud times or more. In rainy apring, through splashing mud Our horses have to poke; In summer time, when there's a drought, With dust we almost choke; When apples to the cider mill Must go, or grain be ground, To haul down fail, and drag up hill, Is weary work, I've found. I'm not afraid of honest toil, I've not one lazy streak; And wife's industrious, too; we read The paper every week; She profits by the recipes, And cooks, and sews and sings, And I have learned to till, enrich My land, and lotstof things. My crops, when ...

TORTURE IN HOLY RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

TORTURE IN HOLY RUSSIA. In the twelfth, and final chapter of his new book The Kingdom of God Within Us, Count Tolatoi tells that on 29th September of last year-the day on which he had written the last lines of his new work-he was travelling in one of the famine districts of RusEia, when he happened to notice the arrival at an inter mediate station of an express train carryings general and a small battalion of troops, on their way to Toula to punish some refractorypeasants who had dared to resist a flagrant invasion of their rights on the part of a young but influential landed pro prietor. The troops (Toletoi says) were drawn up before the door of the district court of justice; a body of policemen, with new red belts from which hung loaded revolvers, stood marshalled in order around the small band-of cuilty peasants awaiting the just punishment of their crime. At a little distance off was arranged a crowd of srlent spectators, some thousand men, women and children. On arriving at the...

GENERAL EXTRACTS. Prin:e Bismarck, who was suffering from a severe attack of rheumatic pains, made a speech to a company of about 1000 National Liberals from Frank fort - or. - the - Mnai'. In the course In of it (says " Westminster ") he th regretted that no law existed in the th lEmrpire dealine with the responsibility of tL Ministers.

Lilies of the Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Lilies of the Valley. All alone a woman workingr, Anxious, worn and fall of care, Toiling, bending o'er the fire, In the kitchen's heated air. For the daily work is pressing, And the mother's hands are full; Wearily the hea lis aching, Which she has not time to cool. Pattering comes her baby's footsteps, Light and soft as angel's wing, Fragrant lilies of the valley In her tiny hands she brings. " Look, mamma, dose valley lilies, Was 'eo first dat eber grew, Dear mamma, isn't day lovely ? And I got dem all for 'ou." Inot the o'er.wrought mother, answere- Harsh the words may seem to be- " Run away, child, do not worry, I am busy, don't you see 7" Laid her hand upon her shoulder, Hastily pushe!d her to the door, While the dear one's loving offerin Fell unheeded to the floor. Say not that her love was lacking, Of her fault with kindness speak; She was sorely tried, remember, And the human flesh is weak. One of those dread fell diseases Sweeping little ones away, In the town that time wa...

It is scaretly credible, however, thbt there should be such a difference in the yield from land p!oughed once only and the ratee land ploughed twice, as is shown by the resultof experiments made in this direction.
