The channel at the placc waa not mOTe than twenty feet wide, nnd the men on tho bank called loudly to thorfo in the boat to watch for th3 ropes S and save their lives. j Their calls roused Trenoweth and Grey to ? | a full sense of their situation, but old iJurgess seemed to be completely oblivioasof danger. ?' We are poing to certain death, Burgess, Wt ua try to Bave ourselves,' Edward said to him. ' Tut, lad I' the old man replied ; ' I am .going through. If you are afraid try for the rope.'

ON WHAT INCOME CAN PEOPLE MARRY? [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 13 February 1894
ON WHAT INCOME CAN PEOPLE MARRY? Tuts is a question of rather vital import ance in tho minds of many young people, who aro anxious to sot up housekeeping together, ahd yet are not quito suro whether they aro justified in making tho osneriment. Ib i.*, of course, somowhab difficult to answer ib definitely. So much depends on the petition in lifo of both parlies, their powcl* of economy, and their futuro pro3* pcct.a. It may not bo rash to marry on £'J u week, when one is pure of that sum what ever happens; and can count on tho certainty of a futuro incroaso, and ib would bo madness to embark on making £1,000 a year, which might como to an aorupt end to-morrow. As a hard and fast rule, it may bo said that gentiepeople can hardly attempt to marry on less than £%JOOa year. Of course, even a lower ineoruo is ofLeu considered sufiicienb by our subaltern* and curate*, but whon tho suppo;t of both dopends entirely on tho husband's lifo and strength, tho dangers nro too greab to mako 6uch ma...

A Judge on Racecourse Gambling. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 16 February 1894
A Judge on Racecourse Gambling. In sentencing a young man named Cbieholui (who, after a course of race course plunging, madua-.vny with about £700 of his employers' money) at the Purramattn Quarter Sessions, Judge Murray ma !e some strong comments on the pr. -valence and evil of race course gamming 111 tlie colony, lie said the insane idea of making money in the foolish, absurd way of gambling was a curso to the cou'.try. In no country in the world was racecourse gam' ling so prevalent as in New South' Wales, and the men who made their living at it wore the giealest curse the vountry could groan under, and it would be a good thing, iF thoy could not bo got rid of by any other means, fer them to be driven out of it by force This kind of men wero better out of life than in it. . They spent a luzy life by trading on the weakness of those who first squandered all their own hard earned money, and then embezzled the moneys of their employers.

Particulars are to hand frottfEio of the serious collision with an ice island of the ship Wellington, houtid from New Zealand to London with a freight of frozen mutton. When the Well ington had rounded Capo Horn she met with very stormy weather, and during a heavy gale the captain and chief mate were washed off the poop both receiving severe injuries which in capacitated them from carrying out their duties, the mate having, a leg broken aud being cut severely about the head, while the captain fared al most as badly. The command of the vessel then deyolved on the second mate, 'with the boatswain under him, and- everything went well for about a week. One morning, just as the watch was being called, the ship came in contact with an iceberg, which she struck nearly end on. The bowsprit and jib-boom were broken in, and the starboard bow, from the Btem to the fore-rigging, was ripped outof the ship. The watch getting ready t...

A one innings- match botweon tho abovo clubs came ofF on Saturday last, ori the ground of tho latt'-r, and re sulted in a win for Bandon Grovo by 59 runs. As the Gresfol'd team have been making some h. avy scores dur-: ing the season, it was thought that the Grovitos were 111 for a dru bn.g, but the sequel confirms the old adage, that a game is never lost until it is won. ' For the local team, the ? owling of A If. Bignell, W. Fislior, and -T. Moore was very effective, whilst the hatting of Jupp, A. Fislior, and Joe Bignell was first-claas. Fur tho visitors, G.

Prevention of Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 16 February 1894
Prevention of Cholera. Some months ago (says the Mel bourne Argus ) an international con vention was held at Dresden to con sider the outbreak of cholera in Europe, and an agreement was arrived at allowing persons to be landed from infected vessels, provided they were ?not suffering from the disease, and were for some days under the observa tion of the sanitary authority of the town. A clause was inserted in the agreement allowing any of tho British colonies to become parties to it if they so desired. Lord llipon, the ' Secre tary of State for the Colonies, recently wrote to the Governments of those colonies inquiring if they desired to en ter tho convc-ntion, and the Board of Health, at the instance of tho Premier, considered the matter. It came to the conclusion that the Australian Go vernrnent should act in concert in any action taken, but at the same time ex pressed the opinion that it would not be advisable to enter the convention. It was pointed out that Australia had been hit...

The Human Animal. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 16 February 1894
The Human Animal. Man, as we all know, is tendering slowly but inevitably to' a toothless and hairless condition. He is also (says the Qlohe), if .we are to place credence in the statements of a paper recently read at the French Academy of Sciences, gradually undergoing other serious modifications. His little toe is disappearing; its average size has decreased materially in the last two ceuturieB, while tho nerves ai.d joints controlling it are slowly bocoin ing useless. What we should like to know, however, is this — are our feet aB well as our little toes becoming smaller? The seriousness of this question may be estimated from tho fact that our bodies— judged by tbo unanswerable test of medieval armour — are undoubtedly bigger than those of our remote forefathers. And if, while our bodies grow big»er our feet grow smaller, pedestrianism in the dim future will obviously become a diffi cult matter, and the need for wings will be enhanced by the altered rela^ tion between the parts o...
