TUESDAY* MARCH 31. (Before Mr. "W. Cr. Kelly Cusack, P.M.) Mk- Milfosd made an application with respect to an order of tlie Supreme Court re the -insolvency of. George Hall and James Down, to tlie effect that they should come up for final examination before tlie Police Magistrate of Charters Towers on that day. He mentioned that Mr. Mowbzaj had stated that he did not see how he could act in the matter while he was not exercising the functions of Police Magistrate. He merely wished it to be recorded that he had com plied with the order of the Supreme Court, and that- the insolvents themselves were present in accordance therewith. Mr. Cusack did not consider that the tele- | gram he had received from the Mines De- 1 partment would justify him in taking the powers of the P.M. in the matter referred to. Although he had certain powers as a P.M., ] which he cofiild exercise anywhere in the colony, he thought it would be risky for him to deal with this matter, pending the settle ment of th...

I Horsing OfXIie British Army. Returns just made to the War Office show thai the greater efforts made recently to increase the supply of horses for riding and draught purposes have been to a large extent successful, there being not only more* animals in possession than there were at the end of last year, but the total number more nearly approaches the establishment allowed. In round numbers, the military services possess a thousand more mounts than they did. a year ago, there being for all the different branches in the army about 25,000 horses and mules, the proper establishment being a little^ over 26,000. The cavalry regiments natural lv absorb more of the animals "than any other service, having about 12,500 in the 31 regiments ; but the Royal Artillery also takes a large share, its total reaching to nearly 11,000* The number with the Army Service Corps is less than 15,000, and the Engineers, Infantry, Medical Staff Corps, and minor requirements use up the remainder.

The Divining Rod. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891
Tlie Divining Rod. ME. WILLIAM SPIERS, M.A., F.C.S., F.R.M,S., writes :-" Probably most of your readers have heard of the 'divining- rod,' and have concluded that it was either a myth or that its effects were the result of evil agency. The reports that by its means subter ranean water courses or buried minerals have been discovered are generally re jected as mere rumors, or as instances of self-deception or even fraud. I confess I have myself bepn quite a sceptic in regard to the matter, bat I have now what I consider good reasons for recanting. Being recently in the company of a few geologists on the Yorkshire Wolds,, it was stated that one of our company was able to discover hidden water or metals by means of the magic rod. Our Mend cut out of the hedgerow a fork haw thorn, shaped like a long V. Holding a prong in each hand, with the apex downwards, we soon had an oppor tunity of seeing that* there was some in it.' Here and there, as he slowly walked along, the apex of the branch ...

AN UNSORUPULOUS FOE. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 April 1891
Aisr umauupuLous FOE. Creeps upon us unawares like an assassin in the dark, and whose dangerous proximity we never suspect until it makes the lasjfc fatal clutch, on some vital organ. We are always warned in ample time of the impending danger, but with criminal carelessness neglect these warnings. That tired feeling, those aching limbs, and that grand feeling one day and seedy condition the next', the sour taste on waking in a morning, and the frequent sick and splitting headaches, all make their debut before serious illness sets in. All or any of these symptoms indicate the approach of disease, they are fatal signs that the liver and kidneys are not doing their duties, that the morbid and effete matter instead of being eliminated from the system, is being retained, and is positively poisoning and destroying the whole physical structure. Neglect in sueh cases is criminal, recourse to rational treatment should be had at once. CLEMENTS5 TON IC should be taken to strengthen the digesti...
