TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

TO THE EDITOE. Dear Sir,— In a recent issue of a paper printed in these parts I noticed a paragraph devoted to supposed doings at a Chinese celebration. That the writer's brain was in a whirl when he penned such is evident, as the ac count is purely mythical — evidently the result of a nightmare. Why should Chinese be made a laughing stock of — especially by men who ? are supported by this class of people? They are as moral, honest and truth ful as men of any other race, and be cause, through theit thriftinesB and sobriety, they get along in tho world, they are envied by others who are lrtckadaisioal in their methods. Per haps no belter champion of this class of people is there than the Bulletin con tributor, J. A. Philp, who, in luBt issue of that journal, replies to another writer (Von Kotze) as follows: — ' Von Kotze says that the relationship between Chinese exslusion and the in creased price of vegetables is a capital argument for his contention — that the exclusion of the Chin...

PUBLIC PATINGS. [We do not in any way identify ourselves with the opinions expressed in this column.—Ed. G.I.] TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

PUBLIC PATINGS. ™[We do not in any way identify ourselves with the opinions expressed in this column. — Ed. G.I.'] ? TO THE EDITOE. Sir, — It is somewhat surprising that the Chinese trading class, the gravest and best conducted cluss of the community, should so easily awaken tho risible faoultie* of feather brained journalists. There is really noihincr ridiculous about; thn niiinn_ 'man ; he ia the embodiment of all that is solid, sober and conservative, and he has done a great deal of the work of development in the buck country districts of Australia. There i9 not a more benevolent class on earth than the Chinese, and their benefac tions are not limited by country or creed, and no matter how much we may feel that restrictive legislation against them is needed, we. should not forget their many excellent qualities, and should treat them with the con sideration which their conduct de serves. ABECEDARIAN.

AN EXTRAORDINARY CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

AN EXTRAORDINARY CASE. .Perhaps some of our readers will remember tho case of a shearer nkraed Bowen (who is not unknown to a few Gundagai persons) who was convicted a few years ag6 in Queensland for the murder of one Michael Oallaghan, in one of the western shearing sheds. Bowen Is now serving a life sentence at St. Helena prison. Graat excite ment was caused in Bananaland last week when the murdered man turned up safe and sound, after an absence of 10 years. Michael Callaghan, the supposed victim, left Brisbane some nine or ten years ago for Melbourne, where he had some friends ; thence he went to Hobart, thence to New Zea land, (henco to San Francisoo, back to Now ZeaJaDd, and only went to Bris bane last iveek, fully unconscious that a man was confined in St. Helena for his murder. Nor did he ever hear of tho supposed crime until his arrival in Brisbane. That a man was killed by Bowen' hitting him with a bottle there, is. no room for doubt, but the supposition now is that it was ...

Middle, ton, gx, 55, 13 acres, county Clarin don, parish North Gundagai. . The reef at the Mons Meg Mine, Kiandra, is said to be fully 6ft. wido, and some of the stone therefrom, re cently treated at Adelong, went over 2oz. to the ton. Several miners from Captain's Flat arrived in Gundagai last week, and they give a doleful account of the present outlook at the Flat. However, they aie of opinion that the place will boom again. Dale's reef, which is situated near' the Prince of Wales Mine, is looking well, so a local resident informs us. A number of miners, working for the Giandarra Company, Kiandra, sued that Company Ia9t week for wages due, and each obtained judg ment for amount claimed, which ranged from £8 to £15.

A Woman Hater. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

? n ? ,.; A Woman Hater. Probably, the most confirmed misogy nist who ever lived was a wealthy old bachelor who recently died In Vienna. After his death a, '.-bundle of documents was discovered among .his belongings, labelled : ' Attempts by my family to put me under the yoke of matrimony.' In this packet were sixty-two letters, the dates ranging from 1845 to 1893, a suffi cient proof of the tenacity of 'his rela tions. So afraid was this strage man of even sitting near a woman that when ever, he went to the theatre he booked three seats in order that die might have one on either side of him empty. When travelling- in a .railway carriage Jio was always careful to smoke a large, foul-smelling pipe to keep away Intru ders of the fema.le sex. In his will he said : ' I beg that my executors will see that I am buried where there is no woman Interred, either to the right or loft of- me. Should' this not be prac ticable In the ordinary course of tilings, I direct that they purchase three g...

An Indian Prince. ; If an expert in Indian .affairs were' asked to name: the most intelligent: and ?able of the ruling princes of India, of to-day, says a writer in ' St. Paul's,' he would 'have no 'hesitation in replying, ' the Gaikwar of Baroda,' who is ex pected to pay a fourth visit to this country shortly. . Although still a young Prince, v Tie has 'taken the first place amongst the feudatory chiefs under the_ British Raj In all matters of educational' and social policy, and he has fully es tablished .his reputation as an active ana rerormmg administrator in every department of his Government. The circumstances under Which he succeeded to power were unusual and sensational. His predecessor, Mulhar Rao, was de posed in 1875 for an alleged complicity in tlie attempted poisoning of the resi dent, Colonel Phayre, and as that Prince had no near relative whose claims seemed incontestable _a successor was_ sought for, and found 'in a distant sciion* of the Gaikwar family, Gopa Rao, , ...

Tea. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

Tea. The question of tea and its proper use is one of importance in the household. Tea is not a food, of course, but an ad junct to it. It supplies us with a plea sant stimulant, and so much of the necessary water the body requires. - The infusion should be as free from tannin — the bitter astringent of tea — as possible. There is no fixed rule as regards the time required for infusing tea. Bach tea has its own. peculiarity in this respect, and the clear duty of the housekeeper is really that of ascertaining by experience how long the particular tea she uses re quires to make an infusion ofliroper and hygienic kind. . ... .

A Curious Calculation. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

? Q. A. Curious Calculation. Mr. William Garrett, according to ' The Pittsburg Dispatch,' recently made the statement that wire nails' are. now sold so cheaply that if a carpenter drops a nail it is cheaper to let it lie; than to stop and pick it up ; and it is claimed that one keg out of five is never used, but goes to waste. A statistician', figuring this out, and assuming-that;.it: takes a carpenter ten seconds to: pick up' a nail, and that his time is worth 30 cents an hour, remarks that the recovery of the nail he has dropped would cost '?? 0.088 cent. The money value of an in dividual sixpenny nail is 0.0077 ; that is; it would not pay to pick up ten nails . if It took ten seconds of time worth 30 cents an hour. Ordinary men, who are not; very quick, can, however, pick up a nail;; on a moderately clean floor, in. five seconds. Assuming that this is a better! average th:in the ten seconds,: and that: we are paying the carpenter only 25 cents' an hour, it will still cost to, rec...

Sound. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

Sound. According to 'Cassell's Saturday Journal,' eighteen miles Is the longest distance on record at which a man's voice has been heard. This occurred in the grand canon of the Colorado, where, a man shouting the name of Bob at one end, his voice was plainly heard at the other end, which is eighteen miles away. Lieutenant Fos.ter, on Peary's third Arctic expedition, found that he could converse with a man across the harbour of Port Bowen, a distance of 669Gft., or about one mile and .a-quarter, and Sir John Franklin said he conversed with ease at a distance of more than a mile. Dr. Young records that at Gibraltar the human voice has been heard at a dis tance of ten miles. Sound has remark able force in water. Coliadon, by ex periments made in the Lake of Geneva, estimated that a bell submerged in the sea might be heard at a distance of more than sixty miles. Franklin says' that he heard the striking together of two stones in the water half-a-mile away. Over water or a surface of Ic...

The Old Joke. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898

'?' The Old Joke. Two Christy minstrels entered the' green room, supporting the trembling figure of a weather-beaten Joke. ' Oh, I'm here,' he whispered, looking pitifully up into the manager's face with a wan smile, ' ready to go on, even If it's for the last time. Never disap pointed the public,' he murmured. Then his eyes closed, and he lay still. The manager bent over and chafed his Ticn/ia -wMlo +-i» rttVinrR flnnllpd rpntnvfl ttves. ? ' ' ' I'm better now,' said the aged Gag as he sat up and gazed feebly round. ' Ah, there's my cue. I'm going on. Let me pass !' A second later we heard these words : .
