Profeesor Brown.Srquard has recntly been making experiments to determine whether the human breath was capable of producing any poisonous effeots. From the condensed watery vapour of the expired air he obtained a poisonous liquid, which, when injected into the skin of the rabbits, producinelg almost Immediate death. He ascertained that this was an alkaloid, and not a microbe. The rabbits thuo injected died withoutoonvolsione, the heart and large blood vessl being engorged with blood.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. INDEPENDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 16 June 1888
THlE LADIES' COLUMN. SB VivA. iJ"r '~' INDEPENDENCE. Inidpendence is at once one of the most useful and faeoioatinog of virtues, and one most liable to abuse. It is the fashion nowadays to admire independent women, and, like all fsbhions, It is apt to be carried to excess. "Aidestoi et Dieu t'aidora" is doubtless an admirable motto to take as one's guiding star through lifo; but an ex esse of independence in a charactor is suae to make it a hard, sharp, and unlovable one. " To blow a trumpet of defiance before us, to condemn observances to conventionalities that are irksome to us, and to scoff at etiquette, to which we fail to con form,does not constitute independence,. says a writer on this subject. "It is only its shadow, and proves nothing but an uncer tain footing on society's ladder. Real inde pendenoe is more modest, and bears a truer ring of sincerity and truth." "It is love that makes the world go round," says the old I song, and the woman whose idea of independence is to tr...

IN THE HOLLOW OF AN OAK. (CHAMBERS'S JOURNAL) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 16 June 1888
IN THB HOLLOW OF AN OAK. (oamanas's oumexAL.) Some woodcutters in the forest of Drommliong made a strange discovery: They began to fell a venerable oak, which they coon found to be quite hollow. Being balf decayed, it speedily came to the ground with a crash, disclosing a skeleton in excellent preservation ; even the boots, which came above tho knees, were perfect, By his tide was a powder horn, a porcelain pipe bowl, and a silver watch. The teeth were perfect. It would seem to be the skeleton of a man betwe, n thirty and forty years of age. It is connjeted that whilst engaged in huntine he climbed the tree for some purpose ann slipped into the hollow tunlr, from which there was no release, and he probably died of starvation.

Formerly in Pruseal, so sook as the King wee dead, all the Ministers fi' the Crown, foreign Ministers, and the Coort. generally, repaired in full dress to the palaca.?
