COLOUR BLINDNESS DEFINED AND EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

COLOUR BLINDNESS DEFINED AND EXPLAINED. Mu. William Pole, writing in Xaturc, thus explains the true limits and nature of colour-blindness. As few people have a clear understanding what colour blindness really means, I must ask leave to describe the defect as briefly as I can, referring to the ' Philosophical Transactions ' for fuller details and demonstration. In the first place we see white and black, and their inter mediate or compound grey (provided they are free from alloy with other colours), precisely as others do. Secondly, there are two colours properly so called, namely, yellow and blue, which also, if unalloyed, we see, so far as can be ascertained, in the normal manner. But these two are the only colours of which we ha ve any sensation . ; and hence the defect has been given by Sir John Herschel the scientific name of ' dichromic vision.' But now comes the difficulty of the explanation. . It may naturally be asked : Do we not see objects of other colours,' such as roses, ...

MR. MACLEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

Mr. Maclean. Mr. G. R. Maclean, who recently fell between the two stools of a police magistracy and the Parliamentary re presentation of the Lacblan, did not break his heart over that business, but has turned up again, irrepressible, irre sistible, and unintentionally humorous as ever. In a letter which sparkles with quotations from Shakspeare, aud similitudes gathered from all sources, he declaims his opinions upon the measure introduced by the Government into the Assembly, with a view to re stricting Chinese immigration. Tlie stylo of the criticisms is unique. It may not be generally known that Mr. Maclean is the possessor of considerable literary ability aud culture. To con found him with the vulgar hacks who supply the Hyde Park oratory would be to perpetrate a cruel injustice. For instance, what other unappreciated politician has such a copious vocabulary? Iu his letter to this morning's paper he unconsciously displays the wealth of his resources by calling a Chinaman a Mongoli...

SALMON-FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

SALMON-FISHING. The delights of salmon fishing, the hooking of the monster, the excited chase, and the capture, after, it may be, many a long mile of ' plav,' are known only to the initiated and the expert. But there are other scenes in tlie lite ot the salmon not uummgfed with the poetic, and which at present rise to our mental view. The scene is a long stretch of sandy shore ou the Frith of Forth ; the time is evening, with a setting sun fast disappearing be hind a bank of clouds, and throwing a fiery effulgence over land and sea There, seawards from the very door of the salmon-fisher's hut, runs a long line of nets supported on huge poles, and throwing itself here and there into huge pockets, in which the finny prey is en ticed, bewildered, and finally captured. The tide is receeding, and the salmou fishere. in huge jackboots, wade to the furtherest limits of the shore, and then as they merge into deeper water, push off for the nets in their fiat-bottomed 'cobble.'' Soon they rea...

THE LANDS DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

The Lands Department. Sir. Hoskins is evidently aware that his department is in a most unsatis factory state. Of the auction branch he said in his place in Parliament, ' He confessed he had not confidence in the auction branch, and in the way in which it had been conducted. He had re moved some of the ofticei-s in the branch, and perhaps he should remove some more.' The cases mentioned on Tues day night bv Mr. M'Elhone, and ad mitted by the Secretary for Lands, are quite sufficient to justify this and much stronger language. When gentlemen in positions of trust have made use of their knowledge to obtain large sums by either taking up land themselves or In putting their friends up to ' a good thing,' it is time that some officers were removed, indeed it would be well if they could be kicked out of the land office in the most ignominious manner. They are paid to serve the State, and if they take, the wages of the State and work chiellv for themselves or their friends thev are little b...

EARNESTNESS, OLD AND NEW. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

EARNESTNESS, OLD AND NEW. A good many words and phrases winch were once held in high honour iu the country have been turned into ridicule by the choicer religious spirits of our own time. Among these ' the sober piety ' of our ancestors has come in for its full share of laughter, and has been associated in people's miuds with square, high-backed pews, fiddles and bassoons in the galleiy, nasal responses jno nounced by the clerk alone, and a good deal of sleeping during the sermon. Yet it is doubtful if more solid fruits were not borne by this uninteresting tree than are produced either by the fervour of Ritualism or the. inspirations of ' Humanity.' Whether it is a fact or not that English work, for instance, has fallen off suice the eighteenth century in thoroughness and honest}' I do not undertake to say ; but the affirmative has been -widely maintained, without, as' far as I know, provoking any serious contradiction, and has been acknow ledged with regret by some of the warmest f...

THE MORPHIA-CRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

THE MORPHIA-CRAVE* The author of this little monograph gives as his excuse for writing it that, in Germany at least, the use of morphia injections is becoming too common among his professional brethren, and ita indifinriminnfp Mimlnvnipnt. — leading to the clouding of symptoms, instead of the cure of disease — Is likely to bring the art of medicine into general disrepute. He also complains that, owing to the performance of it being too often left in the hands of patients, many of them are becoming addicted to the abuse of it. We think tliat the translator has done well in presenting the work to English i-eadei-s, but we feel inclined to quarrel with liiin for not having, iu a note or appendix, drawn attention to the fact that this vice is becoming established among certain classes of our own fellow countrymen and countrywomen. When medical leaders, such as Richardson, Sir Henry Thompson, and others, are by precept and example trying to stem the tide of dram-drinking, tether, and chl...

THE ENGLISH AND GERMAN MILITARY SYSTEMS COMPARED. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

THE ENGLISH AND GERMAN MILITARY SYSTEMS COM PARED. With a population of about forty-two millions, Germany keeps a peace army of 401,6-59 men, more than double the strength of ours, inclusive of the imperial force serving in India. In Germany about 440,000 young men yearly attain the age of liability, and (under the three years' system) about 130,000 are annually called up to the ranks. There are six causes for exemption, besides physical aud moral disability, aud the lists are weeded until none but .the most efficient, tlie very thews and sinews of the Fatherland, are called up to the ranks. Take the case of Great Britain and Ireland. Our joint population amounts to thirty-three millions, the requirements of our army to about 1 80,000 men. The proportion therefore of young men actually required for the ranks would be very much smaller than is the case in German)'. To what scheming, shuffling, favouritism, and jobbing would this give rise, and with what feeling would the selected few...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. UP-COUNTRY MUNICIPALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

SPIRIT OP THE PRESS. U r-CouxTRY Municipalities. We have previously pointed out in ! these columns, times without number, the giant evils of centralization, which are fast arriving at an unbearable pitch iu this colony. Results are invariably produced by causes, and the causes of the evils we are commenting on have not very long to be looked for. The chief of these causes is undoubtedly the fact that country districts are so largely represented by residents in the metro polis. We have agaiu aud again, as have also several other country journals pointed out the necessity for country constituencies to return local represen- j tatives, and until this necessity is seen j and acted on by the residents in the interior, we can see but littlo probability of country constituencies receiving jus tice, or an end being put to the evils of centralization. Of all the injurious effects resultiug from the unfortunate antagonism at present existing between squatters vud free-selectors, we know of no...

ACCIDENTS TO SUBMARINE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

ACCIDENTS TO SUBMARINE CABLES. A curious submarine accident occurred a few years ago to the Persian Gulf cable. The cable suddenely broke down faulty. The position of the fault was localised by shore-tests, and a ship despatched to raise the cable and repair it. It was duly grapnelled ; and after a great deal of labour, caused by the extraordinaiy weight of the cable in hauling up, they succeeded in raising it to the surface, when they found, much to their anmsemeut as well as surprise, that they had ' caught a whale.' The body of a dead whale was found entangled in the coils of the cable, where the animal had netted and strangled itself The majority of break ages result from the fouling of ships' anchors. Nor do the shippers of these j defaulting ships in every case furnish reports of what they liave accidentallv done, although it would be of great service to the company which owns the cable. Everyone in the telegraph world has heard the story of Mr. Hockiu, one of the most emiuent...

One of Holloway's Pills taken about noon and followed at bed-time by a dose sufficiently large to act aperieutly will speedily recruit the fqulty functions, and restore order throughout the whole system.

FEMALE NAMES [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 February 1879

? -FEMALE NAMES. '' ?li The oft-quoted remark of Shakespeare's recurs to our mind in connection with names. ' Wliat's in a name ?' he asks, or rather makes Juliet ask ; and the world has over and over again answered the question that there is a great deal in it. bhakespeare himself would seem to have considered there was something, to judge from the pretty-sounding names of his favourite characters. But it is difficult to say whether sound or association has most to do with our opinions of names. Associa tion must do much, to judge from the various changes in fashion. Elizabeth, Mary, and Anne were once cousidered to be queeu:like names, and have been borne by queens.regnant and queens consort of England. But ill these days we should not hesitate to call our domestic servants by such appellatives, though we should scarcely address our housemaid as Sybil, or our cook as Mabel ; names which are much in fashion just now. Whether Sybil or Mabel, and many other such names as are in vogue...
