Just previously the College of Physicians had published an ediot requiring ali the fellows, candidates, and licentiates to give gratuitous advice to the neighbouring poor. The Oily aldermen raised the ques- tion to whom the appellation of the poor should be extended, and the college decided to accept a testimonial from tho clergyman officiating in tho parish -where the patient resided. After a few years' experience the physicians-found their charity frustrated by tho high prices charged for physio. They, therefore, deoided to set apart a room of their own for the preparation uf medicino.

O.] [Owing to an error in the numbering of the manuscript of the above, we have to request our readers to continue this contribution from the words " all-transforming agency'' in our last issue, which will rectify the mistake.-ED.] .Late at night found me knocking at the door of a farm-house near Faversham in Kent-the county of my father and grand- father, where I had vowed to eat my Christ- mas dinner. "Can you give a traveller board and lodging for a week 1" I asked of a rosy,. elderly dame who opened the door. After running the light of a candle all over me, she said "No, sir." "Look here," I persisted, " I am from Australia, my father was reared hereabouts and Í want to make some enquiries within the next few days about my relatives." She now asked me into a large living room, and, bidding me take a seat, she went in search of her hus- band. Well, to be brief: "The gentleman from furrin parts" became a " paying guest,"...

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 1898. LOCAL AND GENERAL. MR. J. H. Marsden, solicitor, has estab- lished an office in town, adjoining Mrs. Hat- ton's boot and shoe warehouse, where he may- be consulted any evening between the hours of 6.30 and 8 o'clock. CONSTABLE Harrison has succeeded Cons- table Boyd, who was recently transferred to Parramatta. THE Rev. D. W. Macfie's many friends will be pleased to learn that his condition has slightly improved during the past week. During the rev. gentleman's illness the pul- pit of the Presbyterian Church will be filled by metropolitan clergymen. " SAM the Jew," a well-known dealer, while on one of his periodical visits to the town on Tuesday last, created a mild sensa- tion by driving, up and down Macquarie street at a furious rate. His caper, however, was brought to an abrupt termination by Constable McLean, who took charge of the horse, cart and contents and lodged the delinquent in the lock-up. He was brought before t...

ENTERTAINMENT AT THE LIVERPOOL ASYLUM. ON Monday evening last, a number of the inmates of the Asylum, assisted by Misses Brooke, Rowe and Stanley, Mr. C. Rowe and Master Brooke, gave an entertainment at the above institution. The large dining-hall, in which a neat temporary stage, with attractive scenery, was erected, was used for the occasion. Mr. Lake presided and there was a large and thoroughly appreciative audience, including a few of the townspeople. The programme, which comprised vocal and instrumental items, opened with an overture by Messrs. Wilson (piano) and Pigott (violin), which was well executed. Mr. Jackson fol- lowed with " Paradise Alley," which he sang very nicely. Mr. Semple's voice was heard to advant- age in " Beautiful isle of the sea," while Mr. Ingram's comic song, " Brickfield Hill" was well received. The duet, " Larboard Watch," by Messrs. Rowe and Scotland, was nicely rendered, and Miss Brooke's admirable rendition of the song, " Tell her I love her so," w...
SKETCHER. CAN YOU DO THESE TRICKS? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 March 1898
:-.OAN YOU DO THESE TRICKS? ~ rOf course,' said the performing sword swallower, ' it would be absolutely impos- sible- for tho ordinary individual to swallow things as I dp. The real secret lies in a peculiarly-shaped throat; but apart from that, I hw ve had to train iny«elf carefully, as you mny imagine. * At first, I swallowed small objects fast- ened to pieces of cord which I could pull up fairly easilj . Thia I followed by swallow- ing wooden paper-V uives, and finally, when Ifounrt I could do that with comparative ease, I tried swallowing dull-edged swords. Now, however, I can swallow not only ono Bword with sharp edges, but soverai at the same time ; and one of my feats, as you may have seen, is to swallow a small electric lamp, «nd switch on the current whilst it ia inside my stomach. " ' Once, however, I injured myself inter- nally, and thought 1 should have to give up my profession. Then I tried fire eaÜtt*» , but I found that that needed an entirely different system of tra...
NATURALIST. DECOY FOR HUNTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
-9 DECOY FOR HUNTERS. As deceptive- and dangerous as the pro- verbial wolf in aheep's clothing is a patent cow just brought out by an inventive genius. Tho devioe presents tho perfect outward semblance of a most peaceable and amiable cow, but the fore lega and tho hind legs are in fact the logs of two mon. These men are armed with guns, and have a splendid supply of ammunition. 'Ibo device has a flexible outer shell of canvas or other suitable material, deooiated externally to represent the animal ia imita- tion of which the decoy is constructed, and the said sholl is adapted to bo supported or held in a distended position through the medium of a collapsible metal framework, whioh allows the oovoring and framework of the decoy to bo folded into a small space for transportation. In the sides of the frames at suitable points are windows or openings, proteoted by outward swinging flap blinds, and through these windows the sportsman in tho rear may disohurgo Li« fowling-piece . when the...
SCIENCE. STAGE DEATHS ARE WRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
-v STAGE DEATHS ARE WRONG. j With the majority of wounded men, the bullet merely passes straight through the part struok, leaving a tiny blueish-black hole at eaoh end, resembling a magnified leeoh bite wound of about three days* standing. In moat cases it is impossible to tell by the appearance of the wound, whioh is the. hole of entry and whioh is that of exit ; the patient himself oan rarely say, and it is only by ascertaining his position when struok that this can bo determined. Nevertheless, nearly every wounded man, howpver slight the wound, excepting perhaps grazes and hand wounds, is knocked over when struok. When hit, the victim experiences the sensa- tion of a sudden heavy blow. If wounded in the head, trunk, or lower limbs, he does not fall forward as one sees on the stage, but collapses and sinks to the ground, turns pale, sweats, and often vomits. All this may be due to the mental shook, or to the consciousness that he has at last suooumbed.

LADIES' COLUMN. ENGLISH LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
' J : - lÁBDS' JOOLinDi. : ' , ENGLISH LETTER. Both muslin and oambziu are fashioned into the most charming of all possible gowns* Cambric is an ideal enmmer fabrio, and it makes up admirably -with the lace and embroidery which can be bought every «vhore, and the cost of -which is not necessarily great. Quito plain zephyrs and self coloured lawns look better, I think, than patterr.t d goods do, combined with ribbons and embroidery. This opinion may not be shared by some of my readers. There are, however, any number of lovely priuted lawns for those who are partial to coloured designs. JFor example, there is a delicate dull green cambric, patterned allover with stiff-looking little bouquets of white flowers ; this gown might be trimmed handsomely with grass lawn and white and green ribbon. I cannot* say how the fashionable Kreons will resist the onslaught of the laundrymaid, but there is no doubt that the colour is restful to the eye and charming as restful. It gives a senpo of cooln...
SKETCHER. THE ART OF 'MAKING UP.' I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
~~~ BKETfiSKB. THE ART OF ' MAKING UP.' i. Unfortunately, the ingenious manipulator .f various sorta of 'graphs' have abandoned the easier course of represpntiog what aotually happens, and ha/e begun to create themselves the scene -which they wish to por- tray. Herein they remind us of those dis- honest photographers who combine many pictured, and turn out a scone which is, to put it n>ildly, misleading. For instance, who would believe that our well-beloved 'Mr. Gladstone waa seen coming out of a sus- picious looking 'public' in Seven Dials? But there is a photo of thiB very thing. It is undeniably a photo of Mr. Gladstone, and quite undeniably a photo of the pub. But how comes thia incredible juxtaposition ? Simply from the art of the photographer, rt. And in sometins? the same style, the pro- prietors of cinemacographs create a scene, and then reproduce it for the pleasure of i sensation-lovers thousands of miles away. 'But they carried it lather to an extreme the other day at ...

COURTSHIP IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
COURTSHIP IN JAPAN. In oertain districts in Japan, in houses wherein reside one or moro daughters of a marriageable age, an empty flowerpot, of an J ornamental charaoter, is encircled by a ring i and suspended from tho window or verandah I by three light chains. This is no mere common or garden flowerpot, but is used as ¡ an important symbol in matrimonial affairs. The Juliets of Japan are, of course, attrac- tive, and the Romeos as anxious as those of other lands. But instead of serenades by moonlight, and other delioate ways of matt- ing an impression, it is etiquette for tue Japanese lover to approach the dwelling of his lady bearing some choice plant in his hand, which he boldly, but let ns hope reverently; proceeds to plant in the empty vase. Thia takee place ut a time when he is fully assured that both mother and daughter are at home, neither of whom, of course, is at all conscious that the young man is taking suoh a liberty with tho flower- pot outside their window. Thia act ...
