It was only a little stream, swollen by last night's rain, that went laughing and murmuring along, winding here and thore through tho grassy fields, singing a low, sweot melody that it would seem could not but turn tho thoughts of tho passers-by to puro and holy themes. As it flowed from out the leafy wood and through the fresh grasses, it was freo from Bfcain — olear as orystal, and puro as the enowflake whon it first falls from its oloudland homo. But only a few Btops onward and it was joined by a muddy, turbulent flood, that hnd gathered all .the filth and dirt from the roadside.

Science. THE ATTENUATION OF VIRUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 16 February 1882

-.. :MtntL ? THE ATTENUATION OF VIRUS. So long as vaccination stood alone, the alleged prevention of a malignant disease by the voluntary production of a mild disease of a similar type being a fact unique nnd unexplained, the anti-vaccinationists had a shadowy ground to stand on. How is it possible, they asked, to protect life and health by inviting disease P And when they boldly disputed statistics and pro nounced the theory of vaccination a delu sion, not a few intelligent people were con founded and prejudiced against a practice whioh haB reduced to comparative feeble ness one of the worst of the plagues of for mer days. The discoveries made laBt year vby Pro fessor Pasteur in connection with chicken cholera, made vaccination a foot no longer unique, and gave a most promising clue to the rationale of its operation in making the system less vulnerable to Bmall-pox. That distinguished investigator of microscopic life demonstrated the living virus of chiokon cholera, and proved tbat...

Somotimos this pcouliar phase of expression takes another form, converse ns to its application, but precisely tho sama in effect — that is, a ridiculous diminution or understatement of magnitude.

For once again she is yonng and fair, And twining roses in her hair. Once again, blithe as tbe lark above, She is only a girl, and a girl in lovo 1 .The years drop from her their weary pain'; She is olaspod in her lover's arms again 1 The last faint glimmers of daylight die ; Stars tremble oat of tbe purple sky Ere Dora flits up the garden path, Badly afraid ol grandma's wrath.
