CROSS-EXAMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

CROSS-EXAMINATION. The abuse of the liberty of cross examination ought to be prevented, provided it can be done without inter ference with the beneficial freedom of the advocate. We do not hesitate to say that the prevailing licence of cross examination has become a means of extortion and for screening the wrong doer. We do not blame the profession. True the honourable lawyer will seek for victory per fas only, and not pa ne/as, but what, the law allows he is bound to do for his client. When the litigant tells his solicitor how the testi mony of this or that witness can lie discredited, the solicitor is not free to say, ' I object on moral grounds to damage the hostile witness in the way you suggest.' The. solicitor is under a professional obligation to do all that is lawful for his client, though that does not exclude .in attempt to mislead the Court The counsel must act on the instructions of his brief, except so far as he is of opinion that he should dis regard them iu the intere...

The Great Acclimating Cordial. — The fifth division of the globe, as this island is sometimes called, embraces all the climates of the earth, except that ofjthe -frigid zone ; and, therefore, a preparation which will fortify the system against all changes of the atmos pheric conditions, and protect it against all the effects of malaria and the dis turbances caused by the varieties of water, will necessarily be of inestimable value in Australia. The famous Euro pean cordial, 'Dew of the Alps,' possesses these protective aud preven tive properties, and is besides a complete ? specific for indigestion, nervous debility, lack of vital energy, lrypocboudria, and all complaints of the digestive organs and the nerves. Although but recently introduced here {through the agency of Messis.fM. Moss and Co., the represen tives of the Swiss proprietors) it is greatly esteemed as an invaluable re storative and most delicious liqueur.— Adv.

They too have, how ever, some white feathers ; but these cannot be depended upon, as they are often streaked with grey, and are never so valuable as those of the male birds. Their large eyes have a curious film, which they can bring over them and retract at pleasure.

General Distress in Great Britain.

The failures will be ircUUJ/ I1VU I'JlUMSaiiU IllUlC lllilLl liUl year. Not only have wages been re duced, and many thousands of artisans thrown out of employment, but many thousands of those above the artisan class are either in. actual want, or on the confines of it. The increasing numbers who are driven to contract bills of sale of their effects is one sig nificant proof of what is going on in the ranks of the lower and middle class.'

REACTION OF THE SEXES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

REACTION OF THE SEXES. The kitchen is woman's kingdom. Here she works her will — baking, boil ing, stewing, fryiug, mopping, washing, ironing ; emphatically ruling the roast. For ages she has reigned and wrought unassisted and unquestioned, save bv cadaverous, bran and water-eating Graham. Naturally hating innovation, she has been content to do everything 'just as my mother used to.' It is only within a generation or two that science and invention have secured a placfon the hearth-stone; but uo sooner there than the hearth-stone is abolished, the fire-place walled up, and the fire enclosed in an iron box. Clumsy and awkward as boxes doubtless were at first, it would liave been long before women, if left to themselves, would have ventured to improve the pattern ; yet the secret liistory of the patent ranges, patent ovens, and the thousand-and-one neat contrivances that adorn the kitchen of to-day, would show that women's wit, not less than man's wisdom, lies at the bottom of the chan...

SUNDAY IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 February 1879

SUNDAY IN GERMANY. A hymx is sung, iii which all join at the top of their voices ; a long prayer is read for all the royalties, the army,' magistrates, burgermeister of the vil lage, &c, ifcc. The Lord's prayer is repeated every Sunday, and the Creed occasionally, by the clergyman alone, no one taking any part in the service. JUie gospel and epistle (mostly the same as ours) are read, and then comes the sermon. As reading the sermon is strictly prohibited, the preacher com mits his discourse to memory, and de livers it without uny help. I found quo tations from the hymn-book far more frequent than quotations from the Bible. The last verse of the hymn is sung at the end of the sermon, and the morning service is over. A second service is held between one and two ; at this the schoolmaster usually officiates, as our clergyman is also the pastor of the next village. The close of the after ilijuil nci nuc in iji« signal ioi me com mencement of the Sunday revels. On ordinary Sunda...
