PICTURESQUE OAKLEIGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 3 December 1887

PICTURESQUE OAKLEIGH. A pretty township with a pretty name is Oakleigh. Picturesque is the scene commaudnd from the hill tsp just east of the township, embracing a scope of gently undulating rises clothed in rich verdure and handsomely timbered, the great metropolis (within whose suburbs Oak leigh is itself now included) being tnder complete view eight or nine miles away, and the waters of the bay glittering in t',e sunshine over in Ihe westward. Peace ful and dreamy is the scene, and it seems to have exercised its s.,lunolent influence upon the character which it surrounds. A veritahle sleepy hollow has Oakleigh been, and a sad lack of enterprise seems to have maiked its inhabitants It is in spite of their policy, i.ot because of it, that the place has made the wonderful progress of the last few years. For it is not- very many years since land in Oak leigh could have been purchased at a less price per acre than would now have to be paid fo- it p.r f or. And the increase in land val...

Science. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 3 December 1887

%cfence. Instantaneous Pictures.--It is a caus mon remark that instantaneous pictures very often fail to convey the idea of motion, although we know very well from the nature of the subject that the object must have been moving at the time it was photographed. Dr. Eugen Dreher, in Die Natur, has some very pertinent remarks on this point in an article on" The Appearance and Reality in pictures." Dr. Dreher maintains that "it is clearly im possible for an artist to give the exactappear ance of motion. He can only seize a given instant or stage, and so manage that it shall represent itself as the effect of the preceding stage and the cause of the following one. A sword-blow must be represented at a decisive point, not at a stage in the descent of the weapon, else the illusion will be destroyed; a pendulum in motion, not at the bottom of its course, where it would seem to be at rest. In painting a galloping horse, nostage of the exact motion is reproduced. The instan taneous photographs...

I eagerly accepted his kindness, and at 9 o'clock one beautiful evening we started for the rendezvous, a na tive house, grass thatched and walls of slen der cane-work. Arriving there we.entered a large room, on the floor of which a num ber of native spectators lay stretched on soft mats. Boom was made for us, and we had hardly taken our seats before a curtain, which was stretched at the far end of the room, was drawn and the entertainment commenced.

Sketch The Rothschilds. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 3 December 1887

" hoe Itothschilds. A work has recently been issued in London entitled, " The Rothschilds-the Financial Rulcrs of Nations." The author, Mr. John Reeves, gives an interesting account of the riseof the great family of financiers, whose ancestor was the humble Hebrew, Mayer Amschel Rothschild. From being dealers in old coin in an unpretending shop in the Judengasse, in Frankfort, the founder of the family and his sons rose within a quarter of a century, by their skill and financial abilities, to be the trusted friends and advisers of the reigning princes of Europe. The eternal want of the latter-moncy was the opportunity of these skilful manipu lators of loans. But Mayer Amschel was greatly trusted. lie was financial agent of the Landgrave William IX, of Hesse Cassel, and as such collected the dividends of the bulk of that prince's large fortune, which was invested in the English funds, as being at that time the only safe and trustworthy investment. To quote the author: The commission ...

Such patienti are excessively sensitive to cold, and cold baths are followed by great shock and depression. Violent massage and exercise of the muscles the author also strongly deprecates as followed by great shock and, weakness.

When in I8S2 the famous magician, Pro fessor IlHerrmann, arrived at Brussels on his way to the sea baths at Ostend, one of the queen's chamberlains called at his hotel and inquired if he was the same Professor Herr mann who had formerly givenslteight-of-hand performances at the palace of the queen's father, the Archduke Palatine of Austria. On ascertaining this to be a fact, he informed him that her majesty would be glad to re ceive him in private audience the next day. The queen received him?in-osi kindly, and after talking of old times, expressed a wish to learn sleight-of-hanid. " Professor Herr mann gladly consented to teach her his tricks, and during the following four weeks he spent daily several hours in initiating her as an adept of the black art. Of course these lessons took place with locked doors, the Professor having made a point of insisting that nobody else should be p...

Nature. The Ways of Bats. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 3 December 1887

1?Rlttre. The CJays of Bats. The habits of bats, whiile dimeicult to study, are most interesting. Generally one or two are produced at a birth, the young clinging to either male or female, and one at least being carried about in the air. There is good authority for believing that the female not only cares for its young; but is enabled to provide it with milk from its pectoral milk glands. The little rats cling to the parents in various ways. The male of Cheiromelos torquatus has a nursing pouch ifd which it holds them; so-rlieving the ,nothier and sometimes, while the mother folds the.young, the male places himself before her so that they are perfectly screened and protected. The largest of the bats are the so called flyingifoxes, specimens of which are often landed at San Francisco and shipped East. The face and head much resemble those of the fox, the eyes being large and lustrous. They are especially common in the Indian peninsula, and occasion so much damage in some of the islan...
