FOOD AND HAPPINESS. (NATIONAL FOOD AND FUEL REFORMER.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 28 August 1875

FOOD AND HAPPINESS. (NlATONAL FOOD AND F?? ItmifFOMEB? .) IT'S a dull world we'are making of it, 'and veriily the. once merry :English people are being turned into a solemn, sight-seeing, dyspeptic and grumbling nation, saddled'With the nightmare of "money-making." Dame Fortune has played us an ugly trick, she has for our perdition given us commercial prosperity, and we are pretty well riding our steed to death. Selling, selling, selling, is the constant cry of the nation. We should sell the land we live on if it brought a bag full of money big enough to console us for being loft high and dry on some solitary rock. Those mad commerclal tondoncies have warped the nation's judgment, and much that was grand and good in it has given way to superficial finery, which we can but characterize as modernized vulgarity. Every lady wants to be smart in dress, smart in appearance, stylish in living, disdaining the dear old homo cares of seeing how the broad and butter tasted, and how the ale was...

CHURCH DISCIPDINE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 4 September 1875

CHURCH DISCIPDINE. ON the occasion of a dejeuner to the Bishop of, Ballarat in the hall of the. Athenmum at Melbourne, on Saturday, August 28th, his lordship conciudedd a speech by saying'that-" The 'peculiar difficulty under Which ;the .church struggled in Victoria' was because of the .very large " districts, and small stipends, but still this difficulty must be' met." When 'Bishop Perry was in this colony' his lordship. occasionially gave utterance to a' precisely similar' opinion; and it is certainly; matter of surprise that such sentiments should be entertained' and enunciated by Primates of the Church of England. It is quite pdosible dthat' tthe' scattered nature of proindal disticts, throughout' a terri toral area comprising .86,83 square miles ,equivalent to .55,571,840 acres, may, present some' formidable geological obsticles, to the success,: of missionary labor; i~iasmuch'thdt the: comparative isolftioh, of 'th, 'iopulated localities, requres a; considerably larger number ...

THE NICOBARESE. . ("BU~SDA'Y MAAZINU,") LIKs the non-Aryan races of India, the whole religion of the'Nicobarese sdems to' consist in a fight with tho"demons.. ThelIlwi. , as' they are called in Nicobar land, are not so much the devils, of. the forest as the spirits of the deceased wh9 have, passed into that other life in which the Nicobarese ,believe. The Iwi has to be propitintod, or' oxrocised, and hence there is a class of manloene, or priests, who practise ventriloquism and cure the sick, by pretending to take fiom their bodies a -Atone, or pig's tooth, or some other substance, which has caused the malady. In order to ledar the details, one of the ,Moravian Brethren records how he* submitted to the experiment, and Mr. de Roepstorff tells 'us that the tooth pressed out of his chest, by a manloene is now in the Ethnographical Museum at Copes-: 'hagen. But in' both cases the priests' felt that they had been found out, and the experimenters lost, their influence 'with them. The cont...
