A Simple Remedy For Desperate Cases. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 13 March 1894

A Simple Remedy For Desperate Cases. A correspondent to an Ar midale contemporary, and \yho signs himself ' Old Colonist,' writes : — Having personally experienced the effects of cramp or lock-jaw, and the beneficial relief afforded by the following treatment recommended with great confidence by an Ameri can botanist of wide experience, I think it cannot be too widely known by the dwellers in the lonely bush or the isolated mines of New England, , as fol lows : — ' This most distressing disease is a contraction of all or any of the muscles, such as are produced by punctures or wounds, or from splinters of wood, broken glass, rusty nails, etc., particularly when these wounds are on the feet. When any of the internal organs, as the stomach, bowels, or heart are deranged and attacked with cramp, it is not only ex tremely painful, but will, if not soon relieved, produce direful consequences ; and to have the power to control this disease, and arrest its pain at pleasure, will be esteeme...

The Bacteriological Craze. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 13 March 1894

The Bacteriological Craze. This is the age of germ rabies, and stark madness has overtaken the hygienists and the public with reference to bacteric infection. Every ounce of water we drink and every cubic foot of air we breathe is supposed to scientifically assayed, and if more bacteria ... than the approved minimum are found we are threatened with terrible consequences. : The joke of the matter is that the people who are the victims of the craze do not seem able to see .further than their noses. ? They are in agonies- of appre hension lest their milkman may have diluted lus liquor with bacteria-laden water, and they ? excessively excite themselves it the cubic contents of their sleepirig-rooms is below ? the ' scientific minimum; but they pay no regard to the fact that, from morning to night, they are imbibing monstrous doses ot bacteria through other media. ..They never think of the danger of carrying about their person ? a banknote which has 'been ? bosomed for unlimited time by ...

Where are The Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 13 March 1894

Where are The Girls. Australia, according to Miss Shaw, the clever laay who lectured at the Royal Colonial Institution o n Wednesday, wants from the Old World something even more th a n men — to wit, women, it painea . Miss Shaw to see young men, up the country, scrubbing the kitchen table, scouring the saucepans, making the tea, and cooking the dinner. She thought it would be better if the young men could get nice girls to do these little things for them. Probably the young men think so, too ; but where are the girls ? Twelve thousand miles away, waiting for the husbands who are in sufficient by one million(vide census report) to go round, or becoming clerks, governesses type writers, and shop as sistants. Therefore Miss Shaw gives practical advise. When our boys go to the colonies let them take their sisters with them. The maiden will keep house for the lad, and help him to be 'steady' until somebody else's brother comes along and marries her, and somebody else's sister is quite r...

The Lady Mayor and Garrulty. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 13 March 1894

^The Lady Mayor and Garrulty. Mrs. Yates, the lady mayor of the now fatftous borough of Onehunga is evidently deter mined to put a stopper on the too garrulous tongue ot the average councillor. At an Onehunga Borough Council meeting the the other evening (says the New Zealand Star) Mrs. Yates arose with even more than her wonted dignity, and moved — 'That the time allowed for spe&kiSg to a motion be 5 min., and 3 min. for reply.' Councillor Jackson, who ev idently took the Mayor's motion as a direct reflection on the male councillors, maintained that the council had not the power to pass any such resolu tion, as it should be provided for in a by-law. It was pointed out that section 115 of the Municipal Corporation Act : gave power to make resolutions to regulate meetings of local bodies. The council however considered the matter too weighty a one to be disposed of in one night, and, as the hour was late, the debate was adjourned until the next fort nightly meeting of the cou...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 13 March 1894

Passing Notes. — r ? What a flood really means can only be 'vealised by people who liaye ex perienced it. £The news of bucIi a calamity as that which has visited a number of towns and districts on this coast of the colony calls up scenes of widespread destruction to crops, and fearful damage to houses, furniture, implements, and land. Fire may be fought, hut the rush of water oyer large areas is irresistible, and the only safety is in flight. In some dis tricts this lis the fifth successive year in which the crops have suffered from floods, and'the farmers who were only recovering from the last disaster, and with splendid crops of maize and other products, were anticipating a good harvest, will be great sufferers. It may be said that such seasons as we have had the last few years cannot continue ; but in the meantime what are the unfortunate farmers 'to do, who, year by- year, have seen these disastrous floods come down and des poil them of the fruitB of their indus try. ? » * The r...

Copeland. I (From our own Correspondent.) A new reef was opened last week by Harris & party near tho Hidden Trea sure Company's mill. Coarse gold can bo seen in quartz broken from the lode. Until further developments, little can be said concerning this new discovery. At the Hidden Treasure mine the water has been pumped out. After a truck road haB been laid from the surface of the main shaft to the tunnel, it is intended to sink the shaft. A large sum has been granted by tho Prospecting Board to assist in pros pecting the mine. . The heavy rains that have been fall ing for Beveral weeks past is swamping the mines. Later.

THE FLOODS. A most disastrous flood has takon place on the Barrington and Glouces ter Iiivers. 'Scarcely any of tho farmr ers have escaped without severe losses. The promising harvest of a few weeks ago has been completely carried away with fences and other property. It is difficult to estimate the exact loss. Several of tho settlers had to flee from their homes for safety. On some of the farms where a few days since stood beautiful crops of corn and tobacco, thero is now about six feet of gravel. Now the rain has ceased and the waters have subsided, the whole val ley bears a pitiful appearance. Near ly all tho m ineB are flooded. The names of the heaviest sufferers are not yet to band.

Monkerai. ( From our own Correspondent ) On Tuesday, tho Gth inst,,. .we wit nessed the highest and most destruc tive flood ever known in this locality, na well as most disastrous in its ef fects. As most of the residents are agriculturists residing on the low land situated near tho river, they have con sequently all suffered loss to a greater or Josser extent, not so much perhaps, as regards the crops, as in the destruc tion of fences, etc., for. although nearly all the farms were inundated the water did not remain sufficiently long to do very extensive damage to tho beautiful crops of mnizo, the principal product of the district. A ll day Tueiday, pumpkins, grammas, melons, etc., im mense trees, also cedar logs, were to be seen sweeping down the river. Two of the rnsidents were Hurtled out, one family having to fleo for safety late at night. The roar of the water, the pouriug rain, rolling thundor, crash of trees, landslips, and the thick dark ness will make Tuesday night a night ...
