Accidents and Emergencies. ACCIDENTS BY POISON. POISONS AND THIER ANTIDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

amUents anti emergencies. ACCIDENTS BY POISON. POISONS AND THIER ANTIDOTES. CLASS I.-CORROSIVE POISONS.-These de- stroy the texture of the organ or part to which they are applied, and when this organ performs functions necessary for the preserva- tion of the entire animal machine, pr is a vital organ, death generally ensues. When a person who is in good health is suddenly seized with violent pain and the sensation of heat in the stomach and bowels, with a drawing together or constriction of mouth and throat, vomitings-particularly of blood -hiccough, fotor of the breath, convulsions, and either intense heat or a cold clammy moisture of the skin, if no other cause of these symptoms can be assigned, it may be suspected that a poison of this class has been swallowed. In such a ease, the nature of the poison being unknown, the most beneficial step to be taken, until professional aid eau be procured, is either to empty the stomach by means of the stomach-pump, if it can be procured, or t...

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

i APPLE MARMALADE.-Peel and cut thirty apples in slices, takiug out the cores, and, if for preserving, to every pound of fruit put three-quarters of a pound of broken sugar (but, if for iinmerliate use, half a pound would be quite sufficient) ; place the whole into a large preserving pan, with half a spoonful of powdered cinnamon and the rind of a lemon chopped very fine ; set the pan over a sharp fire, stirring it occasionally until boiling, when keep stirring until becoming rather thick-it is then done. If for imme- diate use, a smaller quantity would be - suffi- cient, which put by in a basin until cold ; but, if to keep any time, put iu jars, which cover over with paper, and tie down until wanted. RULES FOR A SICK ROOM.'-1. A sick room should be kept very sweet and airy : there should never be a close smell in it ; if the weather is warm enough, let the door or window be open ; if cold, let there be a small fire ; the chimney should never be stopped up. 2. It should be made rath...

RUST AND SMUT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

RUST AND SMUT. IT was long an undecided question whether these dire diseases, rust and smut, were in- sects or fungus. Some doubt yet, but the weight of evideoce is on the side, if not alto- gether, of the vegetable. The experiments so carefully made, and so successful, in proof of the assertions founded from the deductions of the many scientific and eminent men who for years have devoted their time and talents to the subject, and who of late have been so materially assisted in carrying through their investigations into the most minute and delicate primary organization, by the won- derful powers of the modern microscope, stamp it a fungus. Taking it in this light, and knowing the mode of its propagation by seed, and its parasitical mode of living, we may, in our humble opinion, with a unity of action in the farming interests, get rid of it, as the scab has been eradicated from our flocks. Scab was rampant among the flocks of the colony until the dressing and cleaning was made compul...

Scientific Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

ârtentfffr 3ottfng& How TiiE USE OE CHLOROFORM IN SUR- GERY WAS DISCOVERED.-The Daily News says that Mr. Waldie, who gave the late Sir James Simpsou the hint about chloroform which he turned to such noble account, was a chemist and bookseller afc Linlithgow. He had one day some of the liquid in a saucer, when a gentleman entered the shop with a little clog. The chloroform was placed upon the ground to be out of the way, and pre- sently the dog was discovered lying by the side of the saucer unconscious, and apparently dead. After a time, however, while the stranger was mourning the loss of his pet, the dog moved his limbs, and gradually re- gained consciousness. Mr. Waldie began to think he had made an important discovery, and after having administered chloroform to a number of cats with the same result, was confirmed in his belief. He went to Edin- burgh to relate his story to some medical man, and, at the suggestion of a friend, called upon Professor Simpson. After that int...

FINE ART IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

FINE ART IN SYDNEY. ON passing Cole's stationery shop, at the corner of George and King streets, we ob- served a crowd of people, whom we found were looking at an oil painting of some cattle. It appeared to afford great satisfac- tion, and we, after closer view, must say it fully deserved all the enconiums bestowed upon it. We are pleased to be enabled to state that this clever production emanates from the pencil of-as this picture alone stamps him-the clever artist Montagu Scott. The grouping of the animals is perfect, the tone in keeping ; the colouring soft, delicate, and faithful, and in true harmony with the subject. We congratulate the breeders of high class stock on being able to command, in Sydney, such a high order of skill and talent in an animal painter as Mr. Montagu Scott possesses, to so truthfully paint and bring out so faithfully on the canvas, all the various fine points of their animals, pre- serving the very expression of their different characteristics. Dr. Jenki...

HOW TO KEEP HOUSE. SELECTION OF PAPER HANGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

HOW TO KEEP HOUSE. SELECTION OE PAPER HANGINGS. OUR housekeeping, readers cannot fail to be interested in the following simple' rules, on which the cheerfulness of home so much depends. According to the taste or judg- ment with which the pattern is chosen, so will the appearance of the room, when pre- pared, be agreeable. or displeasing. Large patterns should, of course, be only used in large rooms. Dark-tinted papers are most suitable for light rooms, and light papers for dark room3-many a dingy or gloomy apart- ment may be made to wear a cheerful aspect by attention to this particular. Stripes, whether on a lady's dress, or on the walls of a roora, always give the effect of height ; consequently a low room is improved by be- ing hung with a striped paper. The effect is produced by a wavy stripe as well as a straight one, arid, as curved lines are the most graceful, they should generally be pre- ferred. Any pattern with lines crosssd so as to form a square, is unsuitable for a low ...

FRUIT. DIRECTIONS FOR PRESERVING, DRYING, &C. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

FRUIT. DIRECTIONS FOR PRESERVING, DRYING, &a PRESERVED fruit should be kept in a dry, cool place. Care should be taken in select- ing the sugar with which they are prepared, or all efforts to keep them from fermenting will be in vain ; powdered white sugar is so adulterated with foreign substances, that it will not keep at all ; sugar which has a strong, slightly acid taste, will be sure to ferment. It is safest to carefully clarify even the purest-looking sugar. Fruit dried, with sugar, about a quartet of á pound to a pound of fruit, sprinkled on while drying, is really better, as well aa healthier, than preserves. It should be packed away in jars, or hung away in paper bags. PEATES, PRESERVED.-These may be pre- served whole, pared with the stems on, or in halves, cored. Make a thin syrup, and boil them tender. If boiled too fast, they will break. They will be sufficiently cooked in half an hour. If you wish them nice, let them lie in the syrup, in a jar or tureen, two days...

THE COSTUME CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

THE COSTUME CRICKET MATCH. EVERY year the members of the dramatic profession in Melbourne are in the habit of playing a costume cricket match in aid of the funds of the Dramatic and Musical Asso- ciation. This time the proceeds were specially devoted towards completing No. 2 cottage. It took place on Monday, the 30th December last, on the Melbourne cricket ground which was kindly lent for the occasion. The weather and everything else was pro- pitious, and in consequence a large concourse of visitors (between three and four thousand) assembled on the ground to witness a sight which always affords a very large amount of amusement. Our engraving is taken from a sketch made on the spot by our special artist. Tragedy and Comedy for the nonce opposed each other, Tragedy being represented by Messrs. Humphreys (Zannetto), Grist (Masaniello), Goulding (first gravedigger), Appleton (Mr. Winkle), F. Coppin (a peasant), Pincott (Cassio), Warde (Jacob M'Olosky), Gardiner (second gravedigger), Ir...

MURDER OF MR. JAMES ROSS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

MURDER OF MR. JAMES ROSS. A fouL murder has been committed by a Tokalau native on board the schooner Kate Grant, while lying off Drummond Island, one of the Gilbert group in the South Pacific Ocean, and is supposed to have been prompted as retaliation, in a small degree, for the atrocities committed by the notorious Murray and the crew of the brig Carl. It appears that on the evening of 5th Novem- ber, when the Kate Grant was lying at anchor, surrounded by a fleet of canoes, she was boarded by three natives, one of whom, after being on board for some time, suddenly drew a knife and fatally stabbed Mr. James ROSB, causing almost instant death. Another tried to stab Mr. E. M'Dougall, but failed, and assistance being at hand, two of them were secured. The murderer of Ross jumped overboard and escaped. It is said that the three men were relations of natives killed by the Carl's crew, and that the above acts were done in revenge. The crew of the schooner, fearing to be attacked by the ca...

THE PERILS OF PEARL FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

THE PERILS OF PEARL FISHING. A TALE of woe comes to us from the north- western coast of Western Australia, in con- nection with the pearl fisheries, now so much in vogue in that portion of the Australian continent. Captain Noon, of the cutter Gem, has lately returned from Freemantle, and from his statement we are enabled to lay be- fore our readers a tale, the telling of which should blanch the cheek of the proud beauty for whose adornment, brave men risk their lives, and women and children are left desolate. It appears that "the schooner Waterlilly, a vessel now be- longing to Freemantle, but for many years hailing from and sailing out of Melbourne, was engaged fishing for pearl shell, and was carry- ing on her usual avocation last month on the north-west coast, when several Malays, employed as divers, rose as one man, it is surmised by a preconcerted signal, and commenced tomahawking the crew, brutally murder- ing all with the exception of the captain, who, after a desperate resis...

NEW POST OFFICE, ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

NEW POST OFFICE. ADELAIDE. IN this issue we present our readers with an engraving of the central hall of the new Post Office, Adelaide. The two entrances to it -the one from King William street, and the other from Victoria square-are arched with pilasters on either side, and have deeply coffered ceilings. There are five steps of Mintaro slate, each in one length, leading from the pavement into a small lobby, and then access is gained by four steps into the public hall itself. This is ninety feet long by thirty-five feet wide, and runs the height of the two stories and a portion of the roof, being sixty-five feet from floor to ceiling. It is paved with Minion's encaustic tiles in simple patterns, and lighted by a half-dome roof, the sides of which are formed of glass, which being framed in light iron-work has a very pleasing effect, and gives abundance of light to the hall. The principals are of large boiler-plate girders, and the .ceiling is sunk and enriched with panels and centre-...

THE ALLIGATOR MUSEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

THE ALLIGATOR MUSEUM. To those who are interested in natural his- tory-in fact, to all who take a delight in viewing things curious-the Alligator Mu .seum recently opened in Pitt-street cannot fail to prove attractive. It is under the per- sonal superintendence of Mr. Wilson, who himself shot and prepared all the specimens now exhibited. The most noteworthy of these is undoubtedly '' Big Ben"-not simply because he is the most formidable of the collection, but because he has made for bini relf an illustrious name in the pages of Aus- tralian natural history. His very name has for many years proved a terror in the dis- trict which he chiefly honoured with his presence-the vicinity of Alligator Creek. After many depredations on human and other animal life, he was finally despatched by a rifle bullet, Mr. Wilson being the suc- cessful marksman. ' ' Big Ben " measures 22 ft. 3£ in. in length, and 9 ft. 5 in. in girth, and was shot in July, 1872, on the Fitzroy River, thirty-five miles ab...

A RABBITER'S CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

A RABBITER'S CAMP IN¡ this issue we give an engraving of what is known as a Rabbiter's Camp. The one we haye chosen to illustrate is situated on an out-station called Dreeit, a portion of the property of the late John Calvert. It lies about four miles north of the Warrion Hills, and the ground has undoubtedly been vol- canic at some previous period of its existence, and is peculiarly adapted for rabbits. The camp consists of a large tent, where the various men employed in hunting the rabbits take their meals, the smaller tent in front of it being the cook's sanctum. There are seven smaller tents, each of which forms the quar- ters pf three men ; the number of the latter being seventeen at present, exclusive of the "working boss,"* the cook, and the carter, but a short time since nearly tifty men were employed in killing and sending to market these well-known delicacies. The plan of operations may be shortly described as fol- lows :-Themen are divided into two parties, one called bur...

LATE FIRE IN GEORGE STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

LATE FIRE IN GEORGE STREET.   ONE of the largest and most destructive fires with which Sydney has been visited for many years, occurred early on the morning of Wednesday, 29th ultimo. It appears to have originated on the premises of Mr. Ellis, general storekeeper, 216 George-street, and   was discovered about twenty minutes past     two a. m. Although information was at once given to the various fire brigades, the   flames gained so rapidly, that they had ob-   tained a hold of several other buildings in   the same row before the arrival of the engines.   The superintendents of the different fire com-   panies speedily got their men into position - but the supply of water was totally inade-   quate. The buildings destroyed were among the oldest in the colony, and two of them were associated with the history of our colo- nial journalism-being the places wh...

KAMEHAMEHA V., LATE KING OF HAWAII. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

KAMEHAMEHA V., LATE KING OF HAWAII. WE present our readers with a portrait of the late King of Hawaii, Kamehameha V. The following account of the foundation of this dynasty will be acceptable to our readers. The Sandwich Islands were discovered by Captain Cook, in the beginning of 1778, and at that time Kamehameha, who subsequently became their sole ruler, was but chief of one part of the Island of Owhyhee. In 1793, he had, by war and diplomacy, become the undisputed sovereign of that island, and a few years afterwards, by the same means, the islands of Mo wee and Woahop also owned his sway. Be died in May, 1819. Liho-Liho succeeded to the sovereignty, and with his favourite wife (one of several) died in Lon- don in the year 1823. He died without issue, and his only brother, Kaukeaulii, ascended the throne under the title of Kamehameha III. On the 25th February, 1843, the islands were formally ceded to Great Britain, who a fewmonths afterwards restored Kamehameha III. to the throne,...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 15 February 1873

THE MONTH ABOUT the most noticeable Parliamentary feature of the month has been a trial of strength as to who would be able to sit the longest at a kind of political inquest. The matter which had to be decided by these " good men and true "-was, whether a sum of £900 should be paid to Mr. Rodd, the member, to reimburse him for costs incurred in an action for slander brought against him by Mr. Hassall. The particulars of this case have been so prominently brought before the public, that their recapitulation would prove excessively wearisome. We merely allude to the case, as being the cause that induced some score or two of obstinate mortals to ab- jure their civilised beds, and to choose instead the ache producing timbers of the Parliamentary benches. Phre- nologists affirm, that the human cranium possesses an organ which produces firmness-but, as good gifts are liable to abuse, this frequently degenerates into obsti- nacy. We should have liked a craniologist to examine the skulls of...
