MR. HILL AND THE BRISBANE BOTANICAL GARDENS. The following remarks on a valuable and hard working public servant are taken, from the Courier:— .. " ; •- " Mr. Hill has'been. and! still is, "a very useful' man in his generation. He has watched over oUr infant development in. horticulture and agriculture. There is no oil Of probably, who has a better practical-acquaintance with our flora., n he is not fl scientific man himself, in the sense of Baron Von Mueller aud Dr. Scliomberg, he has for many years enjoyed the confidence, as a horticulturist and arboriculturist, of eminent men unquestionably scientific. He has at least not been wanting in evincing an active sympathy and interest in the pursuits1 connected with botany which have had an economic and com mercial value.

It commenced in the hay, and in an incredibly short time enveloped th< whole building. A valuable draught horse, flit property of Mr. Thompson, was in the stabl< next the hay at the time, and, although teverj effort was made to get the animal out, it was useless, as he would not move, thus the pool brute was literally roasted to death.. A 'breeze was blowing from the westward towards the kit chen at the back of the hotel, but "blankets were damped and placed on the shingled roof,- and every precaution taken to prevent the fire jspread Li*. ajjoctin-n wb3.-e~gome pigsties and other out-buildings adjoining the burning stablea were pulled down, and thus the fire was com pletely isolated. .

Consistent with security, the higher the bridge the better, but there.xuay be a doubt as to whether a bridge of .that plan.could be - con structed for anything like the sum available ; if it could not', why <jould not a bridge of one span be built from -the lower banks ?

THE MEASLES. (From Dr. Fullerton's Family Medical Guide.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 31 July 1875

THE MEASLES. (From Dr. FvZlertorCs Family Medical Guide.) This is an . infectious fever, aflecting the skin and also the mucous membrane, especi ally that of the eyes, nostrils, throat, and air-tubes. This disease is met with chiefly in youth, but it may occur in advanced age. It is one of those diseases to which, as a rule, we are subject once only during life;, but to this exceptions occur occasionally, and we meet with patients having measles who are re ported to have suffered from it before. But as the first attack had not been seen by me in any of these cases I allude to, and as they were said to be very mild, without cough or weakness of the eyes, it seemed possible that the special fever was also absent; and that the former disease had been more, allied to: rose-rash than measles. The fever does not set in immediately after the person is exposed to contagion. The poi son generally remains latent in the system from ten to fifteen days, which period is called the term of " incu...
