Strychnine and Snake Bite. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 February 1891

Strychnine and Snake Site. ? ~:u: The following sub-leader appeared in the ' Argus ' of the 27th ultimo, and which we referred to m our last issue. Dr Mueller's reply thereto has not yet appeared, and cannot, therefore, be published in this issue : — An acceptable Australian con- j tribution to the medical world would be a cure for snake poison. Just now we are receiving occasional telegrams and narratives from New South. Wales, announcing the success of the strychnine treatment, the last — an apparently strong case — appear- ing in our Saturday's issae, but so far no systematic effort has been made to subject the remedy to crucial tests. Its discoverer, a medical practitioner resident in aud well known in Victoria, is enthusiastic himself about his cure, aud he is obtaining a certain amount of honour from the sister states which is not so freely accorded him here. It may be claimed that he has now done sufficient to entitle him to a hearing and a trial, that is to say a scientific ...

CARE OF THE HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 February 1891

clip Of: THE hair. Sydney Smith wrote : 4(Wbatever you j have, have beauty.'. We Barely all agree j with this statement, particularly if he in-; j dudes beauty of character as well as that | of *' the human form divine.' Indeed, it would be difficult to separate the two and J have a truly beautiful face, so much does beauty of nature depend upon the quality, .and temperament of its owner. But if we j cannot possess both, let it always be the j beauty of heart, intellect and sruij, rather | than mere nhvsical charm, which has but a little day, 'after all. But beauty is power, and it is only natural and right that woman should covet it as one of ber proper possessions. Socrates denominated beauty as a tyranny Tbeophrastus thought it was capable of im position even without speech, and termed it a silent fraud. The old Romans so thoroughly felt and understood its influence that they sometimes used, instead of the word beautiful, one which meant strength. So if a woman is looked upon, in...

Mining Nuggets. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 February 1891

mining Nuggets. A Cooktown telegram states that a miner named O'Donnell has just re turned from New Guinea, where he has been prospecting single-handed for five or six months. He claims to have discovered gold equal to any thing found in Victoria. His state ment is not believed, and is un authenticated. Messrs. Stone and Chambeyron crashed at Mr. Wilberforce's ' Lady Mary Mill' 12 1 tons of stone from the Caledonian Reef, for 34oz. 4dwts. %rs A Melbourne syndicate ar^ negoti ating with the Homeward Bound and Bon Accord proprietors. It is their intention to place these claims on the London market. Our Albnry correspondent tele graphed on Monday a report that a rich reef had been discovered 25 miles from Albary, in a locality hitherto not supposed to be auriferous. The stone is said to contain a proportion of 4oz. to 1 ton, and the reef is wide and well defined, and to be traced for a considerable distance.
