A RACE FOR LIFE. AN UNLUCKY ADVENTURER. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

A RACE FOR LIFE. AN UNLUCKY ADVENTURER. Being out of employment three years ago, writes a correspondent, and seeing no prospect o' better times. I decided to go to Brazil, where I had a brother. We arrived in Rio de Janeiro on Christmas morning. The next day I left for San Paulo, and reached there about midnight. Moving on again to San Carlos, a town of I,510 in habitants, I immediately inquired after my brother. I went up every street and asked everywhere and of everybody I met with out being able to find trace of him. Then I sent a letter to my brother at his former address, with inst, uctions to forward it wherever it should be, and eight days after I received a reply. Where was he ? Well, I was thunderstruck-he was only half ai day's trip from where I was so impatiently waiting for him. I immediately set out and met him halfway. Then he explained to me that he was not living at Oliveiras, but had a friend there who sent his mail to him in Rio Grande, where he had his plan tation...

SPIDERS IN BATTLE. A FIGHT TO A FINISH. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

SPIDERS IN BATTLE. A FIGHT TO A FINISH. In the quiet laboratory of a chemist the other day there was enacted a little tragedy which afforded a demonstrated lesson in the etiquette of duelism as it is conducted among the spiders. Few realise the in telligence these inconspicuous little crea tures often display, and, in fact, few people besides scientists go to the trouble of spending an hour or so watching them. The doctor espied a spider in the corner of the laboratory window sill. He procured a wide-mouthed jar, and with a stick en deavoured to push the spider into it. The insect turned savagely on it, and darted quickly up the stick toward his hand Stick and spider were dropped immediately on to the sill, from which in another instant the creature was scooped into the jar. He lay sullen and bunched up at the bottom. His body was fully three-quarters of an inch long, the thorax mottled black and green, the abdomen pursy, round and marked with well-defined stripes of black and yello...

A FIREPROOF TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

A FIREPROOF TREE. A Government report from Colombia contains' a description of a tree known as the chaparro, which is said to possess the quality of being fireproof. It grows on the vast plains of Columbia and the north of South America, called savannas, extensive districts which are parched with heat except during the rainy season. It has long been the cus tom to clear the ground for the new vegeta tion which springs up so luxuriantly on these plains after the rainy season by means of fires-and such fires, miles in extent, kindled by the herdsmen, destroy everything in the shape of.vegetation except the chaparoo tree, which survives to afford a welcome shade to an almost treeless region. It is a small tree, seldom growing to more than twenty feet in height, with a girth of three feet, and it owes its protection from fire to the nature of its hard. thick balk. The bark lies on the trunk in lose layers, which do not readily conduct heat to the more delicate parts of the struc ture. I...

A GIANT LOCOMOTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

A GIANT LOCOMOTIVE. The heaviest locomotive in the world was made at Providence, Rhode Island, and is in daily operation on the most difficult and mountainous section of the lMexican Central Railroad. It weighs 260.000 lbs. or 130 tons and is especially designed for mountain climbing. The railroad men call it a Siamese, because it is, in fact, two loco motives permanently united. It is used for the purpose of freight trains, and is unique in the mechanical world. The locomotive was designed by F. WV. John. ston, and his professional rivals said that it was, impracticable. The same was said of the first railroad locomotive, and of the pioneer steamboat. The locomotive is double in all its parts, with a single cab in the centre. One single stiff frame carries the two boilers and driving mechanism, each machine resting on three rollers, which are placed close together. The difficulty of running this colossal engine on compara tively short curves is met by so arranging the fore and rear...

NO WONDER HE OBJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

NO WONDER HE OBJECTED. A certain learned professor in New York has a wife and family, but, professor-like, his t.hoghts are always with his books. One evening, his wife, who had been out for some hours, returned to find the house remarkably quiet. She had left the children playing about,but now they were nowhere to be seen. She demanded to be told what had become of them, and the professor explained that as they had made a good deal of noise he had put them to bbd without waiting for her or calling a maid. " I hope they gave you no trouble," she said. " No." replied the professor, " with the exception of the one in the cot here. He objected a good deal to my undressing him an.d putting.htm to be:t." The wife went to inspect the cot. " Why." she exclaimed, " that's little Johnny Green from next door."

A QUEER RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

A QUEER RELIGION. The students of St. George's Hospital, London, were recently given the oppor tunity of witnessing one of the most extra ordinary anatomical specimens the world has yet seen. The individual in question, who is named Bava Luckmann Dars, is a high caste Brahmin, of 45 years, a disciple of the Yoga creed, who has cultivated the doctrine to an unheard of extent. This creed develops the notion that the union of the individual soul with the Supreme Spirit may be aided by penances, such as peculiar modes of breathing, particular posture, protracted fasting and the like. such self-constitutec tortures are believed to constitute a short cut to heaven, and, in consequence, theyare very frequently prac tised by the high-caste -Brahmin. The parents of this particular Brahmin started him on his career of penance when he was five years of age, and he has practised the art with an uninterrupted perseverance ever since.To such a degree has he carried his contortions that he can now...

THE MATCHMAKING DUCHESS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

THE iATCHMAKING DUCHESS. Perhaps the most successful matchmaker of her time,and assuredly one of the greatest of her kind the world has known, was Jane, Duchess of Gordcn, an ancestress of the pre sent Duke of Richmond. In other ways also was " 1Matchmnakin' Jeannie," as she was nicknamed, remarkable; for to her ability as a recruiter England owes that fine rcgiment, the Gordon Highlanders. " Matchmakin' Jeannie ' was born at Moureith, in Wigtown, the daughter of a country laird named Maxwell, of long des cent but scanty patrimony; and shortly after her birth, in 1750, her mother and father separated,the former se-ttling down in rather poor lodgings off tihe High-street of Edin burgh. Edinburgh life was somewhat primi tive'in those days, and the tradition still obtains that Jeannie Maxwell, the future duchess, was' wont to gallop up and down the High-street on the back of a fat pig, to the great delight of her neighbours. Deftly did Jeannie Maxwell cast the matri monial net,an:l ric...

THE RING AND ITS MEANING. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

TNE' RINC AND ITS" MEANINHC. At this season of the year the thoughts of the maids and youths turn chiefly to one piece of jewellery-namely, the ring. Inut few know how much the ring means, nor how it has been used, both for love and warfare, since the earliest ages. From the king to the peasant it is used as an emblem of faith. The king's signet is as important as his crown, for with it he is wedded to his kingdom. It not only was an embliem of bethrotal and marriage, but it was placed upon the finger of her who became the bride of the (h irch,and on the finger of the widow who was " espoused to God." The gladia tor's ring was a huge affair, made of iron or carved out of stone. It was not a beautiful piece of workmanship, and on the hand of a .man fighting for his life it became a formid able weapon. The " knocker-ring " was quaint and was generally made of brass or iron. It was used to knock on the house doors for admittance before electric bells were ever dreamt of. The ring of ce...

NOT THE ONLY CASE OF THE KIND. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

NOT THE ONLY CASE OF THE KIND. Deacon Ironside (after the service): Elder, I got in a little late this morning, but 1 don't think you had any right to take it out of me in your sermon. Elder Kcepalong: Take it out of you ? How ? " Get hback at me. Ain't that what you did ? I hsdn't hardly got inside the door when I heard you say, ' And now comes the worst of them all, the chief rebel against the government of heaven.'

You didn't mention no names, but I knew who you were driving at, and I must say, elder, that I don't like this way of- " -" But my dear Deacon Ironsides, you totally miscapprehertd.

A COUNTRY OF THE LITTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 28 April 1899

A COUNTRY OF THE LITTLE. Japan is a country of the little. The men here are from 5ft. to 5ft. 5in. high, and the women are smaller. Notwithstanding the fact that-they raise themselves 3in. from the ground on their wooden sandals, a fair-sized English girl towers above them like an Amazon. Japanese trees are dwarfed, and, in fact, all Nature seems to be made in miniature. The chickens are nearly all ban tams, and the cats, with their bobtails, look like kittens compared with ours, and the horses are ponies. The houses of the poorer people have but one storey, and the rooms look like thoseof dolls' houses. The country, though big enough, is pretty rather than grand, and you have beautiful bits rather than sublime landscapes. It is the same with everything. A cup of tea at a little wayside tea house is handed to one in a little piece of shell-like china no bigger than an egg-cup, and the little Japanese beauty goes down on her knees when she brings it.

(From our correspondent.) The marriage which :was lately cele brated here between Ili~ C. Barton, second eldest unniarrield laughter of our I ite president, Mr. T. .arton, and Mr. J. Clingan, is one that has been on the tapis for some time. As has been before stated, the ceremony was performed by our local spiritual ad viser, Rev. Mr. Chase, in a very ini pressive manner. The bride was a dream of loveliness, and the happy bridegroom was envied by the unmar ried portion, especially as he intended taking the bride away from the district where she has lived all her life and where she was such an acquisition ; assisting at those ceremonies dedicated to the Diety as well as the minor ones dedicated to the exercise of the Terpsi chorean art. It will be some time be fore her place can be tilled to the satis faction of all parties clerical and laity combined.

THE HOUSE .BY THE NILE.: HE midday sun shines hot and fiery over the town of Khar toum, the waters in the ditch sur. rounding it beirng many feet in depth, run ning swift and strong, for the Nile is rising and about to overflow. The roof of the only large building of the town, the Hakumdarich, looks dazzling and glowing in the fierce burning rays of the Arabian sun There is an unusual commotion and wild uproar in the streets, crowds hurrying hither and thither ; dark-visaged Bedouins and Nubians, with scowling visages and flaming eyes, conversing upon the one en grossing topic, the base and cruel murder of a veteran British soldier a few hours before. A sturdy gallant warrior, General Charles Gordon, leftto his fate by a vacilla ting Government, had perished at the hands of assassins. There wasa loud buzz and noise of tramp ing feet as the excited concourse hurried through the streets, the sounds of tumult almost unheard, however, in a distant quar ter of the town adjacent to the Wh...
