THE BLOCK SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

THE BLOCK SYSTEM. . Now that railway travelling has become so essential a condition of every-day life, and trains are run so frequently, every thing that tends to remove the element of danger, and ensure that speed shall not be purchased at the. expense of safety, will be hailed with great satisfaction by the travelling public. Many plans have beeu em ployed with a view to prevent the possibility of collision, among which tbe best known are the 'time .system/' the 'line clear ' plan, and the 'stall' and ticket' arrangement. The first of these systems provide that a certain space of time shall elapse between the departure of the several trains, so that ill theory, trains are never within a certain number of minutes distance from each other. This plan, if it could be worked without the risk of accidents, would answer very well, but in practice it might happen that train number one, for instance, broke down, say in a tunnel or just round a sharp curve. The. driver of the succeeding tra...

PERSONAL ATTRACTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

PERSONAL ATTRACTIONS. Although it is not vouchsafed to many to be interesting, there are hun dreds who would be far less uninterest ing if they could layaside the assumption and artificiality, which are the bane of social intercourse. To be really and fully natural, we must have some gifts. The finest men and women — they may be, and probably are, without fame or distinction — are always the most natural, while ordinary undeveloped mortals who claim to be particularly natural are apt to be totally unnatural, from lack of fair inheritance, from false education — worse than none — from ancestral sins, from repression of instincts. To be natural is one thing, to be a dolt or bigot or barbarian is another. Nature must have a fair chance at us before we can in any way represent her. We must not avoid, combat, counteract her, we must not be conceited, priggish, or selfish, if we hope to be her disciples, or even to be on speaking terms with her. If not steadily thwarted she will give us l...

Aunt Mary : ' Who first conquered Euglang, Felix?' Felix: 'The Aus tralian cricketers, Aunt' Not a Miraculous Panacea. — Wc are glad to see that Switzerland's famous cordial and tonic, the oldest preparation of the class in Europe, is every day becoming more popular in this country. Neither Breslin, Bis chofl and Co. of Geneva, the proprietors aud manufacturers, nor the agents for Australia, Moss and Co., claim that it is au infallible remedy for every human ailmeut. They are above such quackery, — what they do say is this, that it is a preventive of all diseases arising from atmospheric causes, a fine appetizer, an admirable stomachic, a positive cure for indigestion, a remedy for physical weakness aud mental depression and a most delicious liqueur. For centuries these virtues have beeu ascribed to it by the Swiss, and not without good aud sufficient reason. — Adv. Hollowav's Ointment and Pills. ?

FROST BITTEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

FKOST BITT]5NT. Wk were riding lioiue from the Carroll's bull, Nellv Sansargent and I. you know : Tbe white flakes fluttered about our lamps, Aud our wheels rolled silently through the suow. We'd dauced together the evening through, For Bernstein's viols had ' played their best ; Her fair head drooped, her lids were low, | Aud her dreamy eyes were full of rest. j Her white arms nestled along her lap, | Her hands half holding, with weary grace, Her faded violets ; passing sweet Was the far-off look 011 her fair young face. I watched her, speaking never a word, For 1 would not waken those dreaming eyes ; But the breath of the violets lilled the air, And my thoughts were many and far from wise. At last I said to her, bending near : ' Ah, Nelly Sansargent, sweet 'twould be j To ride together our whole lives long, ! Alone with the violets, you and me. ' ! l?er fair face flushed and her sweet eyes fell ; | Low as the murmur of meadow rills ! Her au9wcr came to nie : ' Yes, perhaps ; j But...

EMPLOYMENT OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

EMPLOYMENT OF WOMEN. Moke boys are bom than girls in the United Kingdom, bnt there are more women than men living among us. These statements are believed to he demonstrated by the figures of t-lie Registrar-General, which admit of no appeal. It is a mere matter of counting, and the result is that there arc nearly a million more females than males in Great Britain and Ireland. This shows a singular disproportion, and it is obvious that the excess must be 1 datively greater among adults. Up to the age of ten the numbers living of the two sexes are probably not unequal, and it is (hen that the balance, which originally lay 011 the side of the males, shifts to the other sox. It must not be concluded that the change is entirely due to an excess of mortality among the mules. It is no doubt true that the active lives of men expose theni to more chances of accident, and peril than the sedentary lives of women. K is probably (rue, also, that men bring their lives to a premature conclusion by...

MURDER OF EX-PRESIDENT OF PERU. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

MURDER OF EX-PRESIDENT OF PERU. A communication from Panama, dated the 30th November, to the Tribune, New York, says : — It appears from the details of the murder of ex-president Pardo, of Peru, at Lima, that on November 18, at 2 o'clock in the .after noon, a hired carriage stopped before the door of the Senate, from which des cended Don Manuel Pardo, Drs. Manuel Maria Rivas and Adan Melgar. The guard, which were of the Pichinca Battalion, were drawn up in line on the west side of the court-yard of the Senate, the captain at the head, that is to say in the porch, and the sergeant at the opposite end of the file, two or three paces distant from the entrance of the passage leading to the inner court-yard. On Senor Pardo descend ing from his coach the guard presented anus, and the bugler played, as is customary, Senores Pardo aud Rivas entering through the doorway side by side. On passing before the commander of the guard the former made a sign to him with his hand for the salute to ce...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

New Zealand. A burglar, named Furnace, alias Brown, said to belong to a Sydney gang, was sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment at Wellington. The warrant for the execution of Walsh, for wife murder, at Invercargill, is signed. In consequence of the bad weather the attempt to tow the Hyderabad to Wellington was suspended till Satur day. When a steamer was towing her off, the signal was given to let go, as they could not keep the water down. It was decided to send her as high up oil the beach as possible, discbarge cargo, and ascertain the cause of the leakage. Some pure Lincoln rams were sold at Napier for from 9 to 57 guineas. Pure merinoes (Sir S. Wilson's of Victoria, flock) were sold at from fourteen to nineteen guineas. A showman travelling with a panor ama of scenes from the Bible met a Yankee, and on learning that he could play a piano, engaged him to play appropriate selections after each picture at his show that night.

POLICE! [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

POLICE! Thk pnliceful mind is one which requires a deal of watching before it cau be properly understood or appreciated at its full value. Not only are constables given to a stiange alternation between neglect of duty and over-officious zeal, but sergeants, inspectors, and occasion ally superintendents, are, strange as it may appear, found to be either wanting when weighed in the scale, or going down with the bump of extra weight and the other extreme. As if to show that after all humanity is at the bottom of most earthly affairs, no matter how organised, drilled, and developed, the superior minds of those whom it is the fashion to call police magistrates are generally discovered running on all fours with the ideas of those who are merely the hands and not the heads of our civil law. Statements like this are neither remarkably new nor startlingly original. Since the formation of the police force ample opportunity has been given the curious in such matters to study what is and what i...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

i Victoria. i Mr. Turnbul), father of the children recently killed by burning, and the sixth victim of the Colac fire, lias died. The Victoria has beeu dispatched to the wreck of the Kerangie. The wreck of that vessel took place when the second officer was on watch, but the captain was on the bridge at tiie tune. The land was obscured by a dense smoke. The City Council, after some opposi tion, agreed to an address to Sir George Bowen prior to his departure from the colony. Several of the councillors left the chamber rather than vote, and only eleven in all voted on the question. A deputation of farmers from Ecliuca and Rochester interviewed the Minister of Lands pn Monday, and asked that the rents of selectors might be allowed to stand over 12 months, owing to the failure of the crops. It was pointed out that the selectors could not carry on unless this extension were granted to them, as the past three seasons had been unfavourable. In reply, Mr. Longmore said the Act of Parliament ...

THE COUNTRY LADY IN TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

THE COUNTRY LADY IN TOWN. They arc a source of great amusement, to London relatives, who laugh at them — good-naturedly enough — while they admire their naivete and freshness, and in some sense, even their bi-usquerie. But laugh we must Who could !-s!p it 1 Despite railways, newspaper:,, and the various methods of rapid and easy transmission of metropolitan ideas to the country, it is suprising how primi tive thoroughbred country people still remain. Take the ordinary specimen of the provincial lady, the wife or daughter of clergyman, solicitor, or surgeon in a village or small town (and the latter definition will include places which the provincials consider large towns), and transport her to London, and she is as completely at sea as a Whitechapel counter] umper in a river boat. She has read about London, often enough, and probably has her ' best clothes' from a mercer's in the West End ; and her sons or brothers, as the case may be, tramp about the country side in 'wear-resisting...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. At the Land Court of Inquiry held on Tuesday before Mr. Commissioner Rose, one selector claimed an allowance of bank interest on his expenditure for improvements.

ON SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 February 1879

ON SUPPERS. Suppers, which were so popular with our ancestors, are gradual!}' disappear ing before the late dinners of modern days. In the olden times supper was a most important affair, and was served with state aud ceremony. It was really nothing less than a second dinner ; the members of the family partook of it together ; and it was not unusual for a parting cup to be handed round the table just before the company separated. It would be a mistake, however, to suppose that supper was always a late meal. The Romans, we are told, supped at 3 o'clock iu the afternoon, and the gentry of Elizabeth's time used to dine at 11, and sup between 5 andC. No argument, therefore, in favour of late suppers can be drawn from the customs of our forefathers. There are many people who are very decided in their adherence to the evening meal, declaring that, taken as it 'is iu quiet ness and rest, when the business and worry of the dav are over, it is the most enjoyable of repasts. Medical men are, a...

ILLUSTRATIONS AND REALITIES. The London illustrated papers have come out this mail, all over Afghan pictures. There are views of . Ali Musjid aud of the Khyber Pass both in the Graphic and the Illustrated London News. The rival pictures do not correspond, but they are not so unlike each other as all are unlike the places they represent. Ihe Jibyber Pass introduced to Londoners is some thing like the gorge at Pfeffers, in Switzerland — an awful ravine with granite mountains rising in sheer walls on eacli side, for many thousand feet below a chaos of rocks and boulders, a ' straight path ' in which a thousand might well be stopped by three, even more conveniently than at the Tiber Bridge. The three who are iu waiting to stop the British army, group them selves, iu the picture, on massive rocks in a manner which would secure their instant engagement as operatic brigands with a special view to performances of Fra Diavolo if they would only offer themselves at Coveut Garden.
