Family Medical Guide. (Concluded.) RULES OF HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

áfamílg jWefctcal tëuttie* ( Concluded. ) RULES OF HEALTH. 1. Pure atmospheric air is composed of nit- rogen, oxygen, and a very small proportion I of carbonic acid gas. Air once breathed has I lost the chief part of its oxygen, and acquired I a proportionate increase of carbonic acid gas j therefore, health requires that we breathe the same air only once. 2. The solid parts of our bodies are con- tinually wasting away, and require to be re- paired by fresh substances ; therefore, food, which is to repair the loss, should be taken with due reference to exercise and the waste of. body. 3. The fluid part of our bodies also wastes constantly ; there is but one fluid in animals, which is water ; therefore, water only is necessary, and no artifice can produce a bet- ter drink. 4. The fluid of our bodies is to the solid in proportion as nine to one ; therefore, a like proportion should prevail in the total am mount of food taken. . 5. Light exercises an important influence upon the growth...

Accidents and Emergencies ACCIDENTS BY POISON. POISONS AND THEIR ANTIDOTES.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

sutúrente aitö (ßmergeitrftö ACCIDENTS BY POISON. POISONS AND THEIR ANTIDOTES.-Continued. CLASS TI -ACRID POISONS.-These are substances which have a more or less caustic taste, aud which, on being applied to the skin, excite inflammation, terminating some- times in vesication, and at other times in suppuration, and the destruction of the cuticle. When taken into the stomach, they operate nearly in the same manner as the corrosive poisons. The substances arranged in this class belong chiefly to the vegetable kingdom ; and this is an important fact ; for, knowing that uone of the corrosive poisons are vegetables, when the symptoms of poisoning similar to those caused by the corrosive poisons occur, and it is found that these have been excited by a vegetable sub- stance, it may be immediately concluded that it belongs to this class of poisons. If the poison be unknown, first open the stomach by copious draughts of mucilaginous diluents, or by the stomach-pump ; after which vinegar or l...

Origins and Inbentions. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

Originó anü $nbentton& ' FIBST BOOK PRINTED.-It is a remarkable and most interesting fact, that the very first use to which the discovery of printing was applied was the production of the Bible. This was accomplished at Mentz, between I the years 1440 and 1445. Gutenberg was the inventor of the art, and Faust, a gold- smith, furnished the necessary funds. Had it been a single page, or an entire sheet, which was then produced, there might have been less occasion to have noticed it ; but there was something in the whole character of the affair, which, if not unprecedented, rendered it singular in the usual current of human events. The Bible was in two folio volumes, which have been justly praised for the strength and beauty of the paper, the exactness of its register, and the lustre o£ the ink. The work contained twelve hun- dred and eighty-two pages, and being the first ever printed, of course involved a long, period of time, and an immense amount of mental and mechanical lab...

Srientific [?]ottings. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

Stimmt Sottmgs. ONE GRAIN OF WHEAT.-Mr. Login, one of the Indian Civil Service, recently for- warded to the editor of Nature a photograph of the produce of a grain of wheat, grown in India on the Egyptian system.. One hun- dred and sixty shoots sprang from the grain, of which one hundred and five became ears of corn. The broad-cast system of planting, in general use in India, shows seven ears of wheat as an average yield from one grain. A, NEW DRINK.-^-The Lancet calls atten- tion to the enormous manufacture of the new sedative drug, chloral. It states that it is sold by tons a week, and quotes a letter from Baron Liebig, affirming that one Ger- man chemist manufactures and sells half a ton every week. Of course, no such quan- tity is used in medicine, and the Lancet seems half afraid that it gets into beer ; but there is a simpler explanation, as it will find on inquiry. Taking chloral is the new and popular vice,' particularly among women, and is doing at least as much harm as alc...

ERRORS OF THE EDUCATED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

ERRORS OF THE EDUCATED. To expose the mistakes of contented igno- rance is hopeless. There is no cure for these but a general improvement in education. There are, however, errors which well-in- structed persons sometimes fall into from mere habit or thoughtlessness. Such errors, like the " fears of the brave and follies of the wise," have only to be brought home to the consciousness of those who commit them to be discarded at once. A very common mistake, even with good writers and speakers, is the substitution of had for would before the adverbs rather, sooner, better, lief, and some others. " I had rather stay than go," instead of "I would rather." " I had as lief take one as the other," instead of "I would as lief." The origin of the error is evident enough. The two words had and woidd have the same contracted form when combined with a pro- noun. "I'd rather" may be a contraction of either " I would rather," or "I had rather. " This contracted form is that which we almost always u...

THE RED INDIAN TRIBES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

THE RED INDIAN TRIBES. THE Delawares have been driven from the Susquehannah, where their noble ancestors made the treaty with William Penn. So long as we have known the Delawares, they have been a mild sort of savages ; the Five Nations styled them Squaws ; but, thanks to their close connection with the Pale-faces, they have now become formidable to their wild brethren in the West. Not liking to settle down, they wander through the prairies, and push their way above the Rocky Mountains ; not so much as hunters of buffalo, as in the guise of trappers, guides, and dealers. Armed with good revolvers and sharp bowie-knives, they laugh at the tomahawk and the poisoned arrow ; and, with the confidence felt by white men, they never hesitate to dash at any number of enemies, however great. This interesting tribe is slowly, but surely, dying out. Among other tribes are the Pawnees, whom the French call Wolves ; men far inferior in the scale to Shawnees and Delawares. t They are true Western ...

A YOUNG MAN'S CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

A YOUNG MAN'S CAPITAL. THEKE are many young men who are in the hahit of excusing their idleness and in effiiciency with a plea that they can do nothing without capital. The lack of means is the ready reply they make to every appeal to action ; they imagine they possess within themselves all the pre-requisites to success, hut capital ; if they had only that, in addition to their other imagined virtues, they would do great things in the world ; they would astonish the natives with the boldness and brilliancy of their enterprises ; they would grow immensely rich, and then lay the world under perpetual obligations of gratitude by the magnificence of their benefactions. This is the way they think, and talk, and they roll the vainglorious idea over in their idle minds, until they come to imagine that the world is an immense loser by their poverty. These persons forget one important fact-that all capital is the product of .labour ; that most of the rich men in this country who are not nobl...

DIFFICULTIES OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 16 April 1873

DIFFICULTIES OF LIFE. A THDNDER cloud looks dark and terrific at a distance, but when it approaches near, it. assumes a lighter appearance and passes off, leaving the heavens calm and delightful. Thus it is with the difficulties of life. Seen at a distance, they are large and formidable. It seems impossible to surmount them. With faith and courage we press on, with a steady eye and a strong heart, and what appeared like mountains before, have dwindled into mole-hills.-Now prosperity attends our steps, and everything looks bright and in- viting before us. There are those who are for ever looking for and expecting some lion or other obstacle in their paths, and when they fail to discover the monstrous, black, hideous thing, their disordered imaginations are not slow to manufacture something ter- rible. Such characters you will find groping their way in darkness and sorrow, scarcely doing enough daily to keep the breath of life in their bodies. Ask them why they don't go ahead, and do ...

A FISHER-BOY IN TERRIBLE PERIL. REMARKABLE INSTANCE OF COURAGE AND SEAMANLIKE SKILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

A FISHER-BOY IN TERRIBLE PERIL. REMARKABLE INSTANCE OP COURAGE AND SEAMANLIKE SKILL. A VERY interesting story comes from the De- vonshire coast. Frederick Perriam, aged fourteen, was out in his father's boat at Ex- mouth, doing such odd jobs as a fisher-lad might be sent \ipon-getting in lines or drop- ping them ; catching or preparing bait ; set- ting crab-pots or perhaps night hooks for conger. The morning was wet and windy, and at the mouth of the Exe it was blowing "great guns" from the north side. Our small hero had miscalculated the strength of his fourteen years : he got his crab-pots or conger-lines properly settled, but when he headed for home his boyish muscles could not possibly make way against wind and tide. He had " lost his lee," and was very rapidly drifting out into the open water, carried far- ther and farther into the wild sea. with a boat only meant for harbour work. Let landsmen and ladies try to realise the posi- tion. Home and safety going hopelessly astern, f...

PSYCHE AUX ENFERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

PSYCHE AUX ENFERS. THIS is the name of a picture presented early in the year 1872 to the trustees of the National Gallery by M. Gustave Curcier, of the firm of Messrs. Curcier and Adet, prior to that gentleman's departure from the colony. The picture is the work of Eugene Ernst Hillemacher, and represents Psyche being ferried across the Styx in Charon's boat. The story is that Psyche was ordered by Venus to carry to Proserpine a box con- taining some of the beautifying cosmétiques in favour with the ancient goddesses. Advice was given to Psyche to provide herself with money to fee the ferryman, and with cakes as a sop for the three-headed Cerberus. She is also told that, when midway across the Styx, an old man, "raising his rotting hands," will ask to be received into the. boat, and is warned to shut her heart to the dictates of piety. The incident is made use of by the artist. Frowning masonry surrounds the abode of Pluto-the black waters of the river reflect the gleam of the dista...

VICTORIAN AND TASMANIAN CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

VICTORIAN AND TASMANIAN CRICKET MATCH. A MATCH between the cricketers of Victoria and North Tasmania was lately played at Launceston, the sister colony having under- taken to bear the expenses attendant upon the visit of their opponents. Victoria was repre- sented by L. Goldsmith, J, Stewart, T. Hep- burn, 0. Williams, A. Loughman, D. Wilkie, E. W. Wardill, C. G. Ailee, H. Bishop, H. Jennings, and E. H. Butler, while the Tas- manian team consisted of G. Davis, G. Bailey, C. Butler, E. Freeman, J. Lord, J. Martin, W. Collins, W. H. Walker, T. Haymes and J. Walshe. The Tasmanians were the first to go to the wicket, and managed by good I play to secure 124 runs, Victoria scoring 150 ; and the islanders in their second innings made 136, thus leaving Victoria 111 to win -a feat which they accomplished with seven wickets to spare. On the Tasmanian side Haymes was the top scorer with 50 to his name, followed by W. H. Walker with 33.. Hepburn, for Victoria, made the brilliant score of 76, a...

The pano- rama, as issued by Mr. Rogers, can be ob- tained in a portable form-neatly folded in a suitable cover-and being very carefully printed, forms one of the best things of its kind yet issued. ' A novelty in gentlemen's dress is promised from Boston. The front of the shirt is to have a few bars of music printed upon it, in some cases with words. Gentlemen wearing these shirts will stand behind pianos to be sung and played from.

CHINESE GAMBLING HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 13 May 1873

CHINESE GAMBLING HOUSES. THE old-world spirit of gambling reigns strong within the breasts of the dwellers on the. continent of Australia, and opportunities are not wanting to enable them to plunge into the excitement to be found at the gaming- table. Melbourne does not possess the Kur sals that once formed the glory of Homburg and Baden-Baden, nor the princely saloons to be found at Monaco. No white-chokered satellites of an antipodean Le Blanc or Chabot stir the reluctant calculator of the odds with failes votre jeu, and trente et quarante and roulette have not become a public institution. The silver hells of Leicester-square are un- known, but still tnere are haunts where those who desire it can tempt fortune to the full. In Melbourne, sallo-faced and pig-tailed Mongolians perform the office of croupiers, and in the Chinese quarter, which is but another name for Little Bourke-street, are to be found the antipodean gambling houses, and in which dirt, squalor, and obscurity | usurp...
