How Diet Affects Obesity. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 5 October 1898
How Diet Affects Obesity. The life of Arthur Orton, the Tich- borne claimant, affords an interesting lesson. He varied in bulk at different periods of his life in a most astonishing manner. In 1866, when, being about thirty-one years of age, and living at Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, he was slim, and weighed only 10st. 8lbs. During his stay of a few months at Sydney, he rapidly increased to 18st. ; and when, in January, 1867, Lady Tichborne 'recognised 'him in Paris as the missing Sir Roger, he weighed 21st. During the stormy years of his two trials he grew, but at a slower rate, and at the time of his conviction on February 28th, 1874, he scaled no less than 25st. At the end of 1884, after ten years and eight months' imprisonment, his weight had been reduced to lOst. 6lb., or 2lb. less than his weight at Wagga Wagga in 1866. When he whs liberated, his weight again increased, and at the time of his death he is said to have weighed 18st. If these data are correct, the 'British Medic...

LADIES' COLUMN. CHATTY NOTES ' FROM SYDNEY. (By ' Lady Blarney.') Eighi-houes Day passed over in its usual way. The prosession was just the same as of former years, but the holiday makers in the early morning thought that the day would turn out an unfavourable one. However, the sun shone out, and a delightful holi day was the result. ' With few exceptions the dancing season ? is over, and picnics are the order of the aay. The days are de lightful for such outings, and the children are tho benofitera thereof. Have I remarked to you before tho pretty way in which the design on dresses are marked out in true lovers' knots. Not only is the fashion ia wedding dresses, which are, I suppose, symbolical o^j^J-he happiness of connu' ?^^^^?Bff'in race dreflses and those n^^BHBpry social function.

LAND LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 8 October 1898
LAND LEGISLATION. a . . : ? Whatever mistakes Mr. Car ruthers may have made during his occupancy of the Lands portfolio, he must certainly be given credit f or: his efforts to .place the land laws of the colony upon a workable basis, and also to promote bona fide settlement. The Bill which ?he succeeded in getting passed into law in '95, although far and away ahead of previous enactments, did not afford to settlers - su/eh measure of relief as was [anticipated. The homestead selection clauses were voted .by authorities as a panacea for the disadvant ages under which struggled those who '?? were endeavoring to make homes, for themselves. Such a contention proved quite fallacious! as it was found that ; when the ... pre cept was put into prac tice the result was diametri , cally opposite to what was ' intended.. So:jt will be in the case ot some of the proposed amendments* included in the new Land Bill introduced into the Assembly last week by Mr. Carruthers. One clause provides that;...

WITH THE 'BOYS.' LEISURE HOURS TALK. A stillness that /was almost un earthly was reigning in the divan last meeting night, when there was wafted through a broken window pane sounds of music, soft and low. Patsy Bolivar told us tho causeof such was our Town Band. There was evidently musio in the air, tor a voice close by commenced to pipe in a Bhrill treble something about 'In a Tucker Van with Bread.' Bullswool appeared to be getting sentimental, as he propped himself up in the corner for several minutes, and when the dulcet murmuringB had ceased he gutturally whispered, ' Muaic, it harms and moves the sav age beast !' ' ?The barber, who said ho knew something of geography, told Bulls wool that he had given the quotation incorrectly, and proceeded to correct him. . This led up to a general diseussion on matters musical, and Jack Swaller puddin wanted to know how the mem bers of the Opposition Band were progroKsing. He thought in oalling the liand the ' Premier, the players had made ...
