Some Dental Reminiscences. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 April 1892

Some Dental Remini scences. I have been dabbling a little in dentistry for the past, few days, r.nd as far as I have gore I can't say that I hanker after it as a means of rest and relaxation. I had much rather sit in a barber's chair, and have him pour bay rum down my neck and ask me if I didn't want a sea foam or a scalp eradicator. As cunpleasant and annoying to the ee:oEitivo soul es that is, it is a Itethoven syelphony alongside of a rest in a dentist's chair. It almost makes a man wish he had been born without teeth, when be comes to hbaing them fii!ed. I mentioned this little b-,: etc to my dentist but he only grunted and told me cnt to spit on the carpet. There iseomething so discoureging to conversation in the regular course of dentistry that one hates to hare the life knocked out of a little pleasantry by a mereinary minded tooth doctor. A :man can think cf a good many things while a man's fist and a set of boring apparatus is operating itride his jaws, but he can scarcely ...

SA Spiicr--iinl l:g Wasp. Not lIng E'neC, whilc I was enjoying a siesta On the porch, my attention was sruddenly attracted Ly seeing a large spider running up the body of a tree about ten feet away. The spider seemed to be very much excited, and, after he had run up the body of the tree about six feet, he ran out on n side iimb, and after he had gone about eight feet on this limb, he dropped off to the ground. No sconer had he struck the ground thanlie commenced a headlong flight through the grass of the lawn.

Underground Waters in Rock Transformation. [Translated from the French.] [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 April 1892

Underground Waters inL Rock Transformation. [Translated from the French.] Prof. G. A. Daubree upon the effect of water in rock transformat'on says : We shall now consider how the founds. mental facts of metamorphism imply the t necessary action of eubterrancan waters. The mineralogical modifications peculiar to the phenomena have incontestably taken place at a higher temperature than now prevails on the eurface of the globe. We base this conclusion upon the anologies of these beds with the eruptive rocks, and especially upon the presence of numerous t anhydrous silicates, which form one of their f most reo arkable featnreo. The proper heat of the globe decreasing from the deeper parts i towards the surface, the sadiments deposited in the ocean, at the relatively low tempera. c ture that reigns there, shold, when they t have been covered by other strata, acquire a f higher temperature by reason of their t greater distance from the radiating esrface.

Evening in tier: i1ll1s. -4-- EY SEITCIE E. B5 H. Up where the hills ore in glory steeped, And the glowing west ell crimson heaped, The hush nod calm of the dying day Broods over all on the mountain way. The deep ravines are filled with gloom, Or a dim. mysterioun, purple bloom ; From the darkening wood where the shadows fall, Comes the mourning dove's low, plaintive call. The fresh, cool breath from the western sea, Makes rippling murmurs in each oak tree t It faints away, in a tremulous sigh, 'Mid the tallest pints where the sunbeams die. The sky in the west grown poal and dead, As a lovely face when the spirit's fled A night bird trills in the evening eta:, And the day has gone to lands afar.

CHAPTER XVI. LOVES TETT. tShe did not weep But o'er her blight eyes came a happy mist Like that which keept the heart of Eden green, Before the useful trouble of the rain. In moat colonists' lives there comes an Australian spring. Ere tlat trip to Europe, Alton Lyndisurst's favourite complaint was that Ihe had lived his life ; that dreams, and desires, and even am bition, had comlle to an end for him ; that he had no expectation of ever doing better work, or winning wider renown, or being in any wise better, or happier for the passaco of cominig years. Yet, to-night lie feels the soft, gentle frag rant spring withint and without his whole being, as if a new world opened its por tals to him. In a word, he is in love, in love with a good woman, in whose faithl and constancy he has no shadow of doubt. Within a month of his return to Noew Zealand the young novelist renews his ac quaintance with the Carlingtons, who had already arrived with their kinsman. and had taken up their abode at ...

With his removal the town and neighborhood loses one of the most popular of its public men, and the religious causes a very lstrcnuous supporter. Mr. Higgin did not confine himself to the pulpit, but en. deavored to actively identify himself with every social movement that had an elevating tendency, He tiled to demonstrate Christian ity was a benifeient humanising spilit rather than a formal empty creed. He will be greatly missed at the meetings of the Literary and Debating Society of which he was the President, for there can be no question but that the success of its last winter's meetings was in a large degree the result of his foster ing care.
