FEARFUL FLIGHTS THROUGH SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
FEARFUL FLIGHTS THROUGH SPACE. The prevailing idea that a lengthy fall through space is invariably fatal to human life is a pal pable fallacy, as the following authentic ex amples to the contrary will amply demonstrate. In the ipriug of 1890, a young lady, suffering from a disappointment in love, flung herself headloug from the Clifton Suspension Bridge into the river below, a distance of 2S0 feet. The fall occupied about six seconds, and as there was a brisk brreze blowing at the time, her dress, becoming inflated, somewhat lessened tbe force of the fall. She was retoued from her perilous position and taken to the hospital, ivhere she soon recovered. Her sole injuries were a few body bruises And a slight shock to the system. In January, 1892, a young man at Rochdale, through the slipping of a ladder on which he was working, was precipitated through the »ir for a distance of 85 fret, and incredible though it may seem, actually alighted on his shoulder in a big bank of soft mud, and ...

But Little Compton offered few opportunities especially to girls, and presently Miss Lolia— 1 everybody calld her that— extended the horizon of inquiry to the world outside. There were only her mother and herself at home, so natur ally her first thought went to those sections of thn world which coutaiued her brothers and sisters. Tom, the oldest, was the mate of a .

STRANGE INDEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
STRANCE_INDEED. Some time ago a Northern town was the scene of several riots. Owing to the construction of a new line of railways large number of navvies were lodging in the town. Among them was a man who went by the name of Charlie Smith. He was known to be a ringleader in these riots, and, of coarse, was ' wanted.' He was suppoied to be lurking in a house in one of the back streets of the town, und a po*so of huH-n-dozon constables was sent to the locality in order to effect his arrest. Before the police could realise tho position, Smith bolted, and, bitting out right and left with remarkable dexterity, be floorei fire out of the aix constables. The last policeman, however, was ready for his man, and brought down his truncheon viilh full force on the navvy's head. Before the latter fell he shouted out, ' Oh, Jaok !' and then tumbled senseless to the ground. In a moment the policeman recognised in the prisoner his own brother, whom he had not seen for years The navvy wus taken to t...

Light-Eyed People at a Disconnt. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
Light-Eyed People at a Discount. A writer in one of. the home papers states that in many . parts of South Amerioa the Indians are suspicious and never trust a man ' with eyes like a cat. ' ,A man with light eyeB is, in fact, never safe, and the Indians are apt to kill such a man at sight. If no present oppor tunity should oiler itself of gratifying this prejudice, they will often hang around for dayB for the chance of dis posing of the intruder. It is related that not long ago a. French trader was sitting quietly among some Goajira Indians, discussing business, when a party of the same tribe, who had been filling up with ' mescal ' came along, and the cry was raised, 'A man with eyes like a cat I Let us kill him now.' There was a scramble and a daring reacue, for the trader's companions reached his side only just in time.
New Paint for Artists. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
New Paint for Artists. People who keep their eyes open and ingeniously apply what they see are apt to make great discoveries. A Scotch artist haB discovered that a pigment of great beauty of colour and fastness can be made from the smut of the oat. The colour is a deep, rich amber shade, sometimes approaching to sepia in tone. J.MO ainut is a lungom growtn, wnicn is often seen in the shape of deep brown or sepia-coloured Bpore dust on oats and other cereals. Specimens of the pig ment painted on paper as a water colour have withstood the exposure to direct sunlight for many monthB, and shown little change in strength of colour when subsequently compared with unexpoaed duplicate specimens. When dilated with water or Chinese white the new colour jb said to give pleasing tints of a flat brown, of the pheasant-egg cast.
Rinderpest. IN FOUR PARTS. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
Rinderpest. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.W.S ? ¥+t ? . ' IN FOUR PARTS.' PART I. It is now from six to eight years Binoe this terrible bovine disease first began its most recent and fearful campaign upon the herds of the world. In the years 1889 and 1890 it began to make its presence felt amongst tho oattle of Somaliland, in the region of the Oulf of Aden, where it killed off large numbers of animala. From here the plague passed on to Hasailand, and by the middle of 1892 it had reached Kavelli and the Luupula. The next year it was reported in the neighbourhood of Lakes Victoria and Nyassa, and throughout the districts lying between them and the ooast. In February, 1896, the disease made its appearance in Rhodesia, and travel ling southward at the rate of twenty miles per day, it had, by the end of that month, reached the borders of Oape Oolony. Since then it has penetrated the southern oolony, almost to the gates of Oape Town, ravaging portions of the country from no,rth to so...
Plea for the Potato. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
Plea for the Potato. The potato has the following com position in parts per 100 : Water, 75-77. Albuminoids, 1'79. Fat. -16. Carbo hydrates, 21-31. SaltB, '97. Here the nutriment may be looked upon as about 23 per cent. ; but it should be noted that the albuminous matter surrounds the akin of the potato, and if the skin is pared oQ one cannot help but remove this albuminous matter at the same time ; therefore, potatoes should be boiled in their skins, which makes it possible to remove them without the albuminous layer underneath. More ovor, the skin acts as a membrane resist ing the soaking out of the valuable salts. If potatoes are peeled they should 'not be allowed to soak in water before boiling, as thin helps to dissolve out the soluble saltB. The dissolving out of the salts is reduced to a minimum by baking or Btcaming the potatoes.
The Cure for Dipsomania. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898
The Cure for Dipsomania. Intemperance may bo remedied by moral education. It can never be banished by legislation or force. There ia plenty of evidence. Ether drinking, which was so prevalent in certain parts of Ireland a few years ago, was attributed by some to the success of Father Mathew s crusade against alcohol. We learn from the ' British Medical Jour nal ' that Dr. Sohn, a medical official of Enst Prussia, has stated that men, women, and children in that province indulge so freely in ether drinking, that tho roads and markets reek with the mawkish fumes of the drug, juBt as the railway carriages on the lines of some market towns in the North of Ireland used to do on fair days. He attributes the sproad of tho practioe to the imposi tion in 1887 of a duty on corn-brandy which coBtB abont Is. 6d. per quart, whereas other, being antaxed, oan be purchased for sixpence.

THE MACLFAY CONTEST. Widespread condemnation is ex pressed at the action o£ the Minister for Works. The Opposition is de orminedthat Mr. Young shall leave the Ministry, but there is considerable difference of opinion as regards the mode, of attack. The Macleay contest ib still in creasing in interest and excitement. Mr. Barton telegraphed yesterday to the Crown Solicitor, that in conse quence of the gross aspersions made against him by: the Minister for Works he declined to receive fees as arbitrator in :tho McSharry case. Unbiassed onlookers think the re sult of the contest very uncertain.
