WITH THE FIREMEN AT WARRNAMBOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
WITH THE FIREMEN AT WARR NAMBOOL. [BY ONE OF THEt.] In the midst of his duties in coping with fires, there is.one bright spot in the life of a fireman, and that is his outing to attend the annual demonstration of the Country Fire Brigades' of Victoria. A few years ago these affairs were of an intercolonial character, and the colonies were, for the nonce at any rate, federated. Then the Government of the mother colony objected to pay the fares of the cabbage-gardeners, and the inter colonial business was stopped Then came the Fire Brigades' Act, with the result that the multitudinous metro politan brigades were abolished, and the gathering became one of a purely up country character, managed and carried out by the Country Fire Brigades' Board. That the change hat been one for the better is amply proved by a re ference to the programme, which now embraces only events of practical utility; and at the same time, the regulations prevent a town being left entirely with out a sufficiency o...
TATURA RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
TATURA RACES. -o: At a meeting of the committee of the above race club held last evening in the Mechanics' Inistitute, Dr M'Carthy (president) in the chair, and about 20 members were present. The secretary reported that everything was going on satisfactorily. As there appeared to be a misunder standing with regard to the Ladies' Bracelet race, whether it was to be a Welter Handicap or weight-for-ago race, a long discussion took place, and after a long conversation it was decided, on the motion of Mr Curtis, seconded by Mr Colliver, to make the race a Welter Handicap. This was carried by a sub stantial majority. It was resolved to collect fees from bookmakers on the ground. The committee decided to collect sub scriptions on the ground towards the expenses of the meeting. It was decided that the settling should take place the same evening at Mr Jno. M'Elgunn's. NOMINATIONS AND ACCEPTANCES. The following are the names of accepted horses, with their weights : TRIAL STAKES. P. Hogan's Er...

Pearl Diving in the Gulf of California. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
Fearl DivInt? in the Gulf of California. At the present time the pearl-diving ex. peditions are fitted out with complete diving apparatus. The divers descend clothed in helmet and diving suit, their feet heavily weighted to counterpoise the weight of armor. They fish in much deeper water than the ancient busoes, can stay an indefinite period beneath the surface, and have thus been enabled to explore new and productive banks; but in former times, the diver descended naked, armed only with a pointed stick, and equipped with a sack in which to gather the shells. Six fathoms was the average depth of their fiAhing ground. The nude body of the diver had no protection from the ravenous man-eating sharks, which abounded; yet the daring fellows, eonfdent in the protection of the Virgin, whom they had not failed to propitiate to encounter the hungry tiger of the deep, but coolly awaiting the moment when it turned with open mouth to coine them, would thrubt the double. pointed stick between th...

Iodine for An[?] Stings. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
Iodiao for An% Stings. A eorrespondent wites :-" Only those who have been stung know iow to appreciace the misery of the ' barefoot boy with cheek of tan ' who has steppod'on a red ant. Little children will rometimes ary for three hours from a single sting. I hasv tried camphor, liniments without number, ammonia, soda, alcohol (externally use'), and everything else that the fertile imagination of numer ous friends coulld suggest, without obtaining the slightest relief. Happening one day to rub a drop of iodine on a fresh sting, I was surprised to find that the pain at once ceased. Since then numerous trials have shown that it is a good thing. Six-penny worth of iodine from the nearest chemist's shop will save two pounds worth of pain in a very short time. If the stains of the iodine are objected to, the discolored variety may be obtained."

Uncle sp 1 laughed and said: " Very well; I will tell of an incident of a lono-ago war that was brought to my mind to day by reading an account of a new sub-marine torpedo. Of course you all know that that is a machine so constructeI as to explode upon coming in contact with a vessel's bottom?" '" Yes," said Miss D:ue, 'simply, to show that she understood perfectly; " I had a whole box of torpedoes last year." Her uncle only laughed, pulled her ear, and proceeded with his story.

Tlhey were on their we:lding tour. Julia Van Siankins, the beautiful heiress, who had met the dlii. tinguished foreign nobleman,Count do Tier. garmut, while on a visit to her friends, had yielded to the impulsive ardor with which the count pressed his suit, and after a brief cooutship the two were married. Life looked blissful and romantic to the ecstatic young couple, and a future foil of rose.embowered victas, ondless moonlight reveries and the dreamy ?,lrcfhr einlte of far away tropical Edens, whose existence was guessed by both but unspoken by either, rose before their rapturous vision.

AMUSING BLUNDERS OF CLEVER PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
AMUSING BLUNDEIRS OF &nbsp; CLEVER PEOPLE. &nbsp; A hyper-critical reader has been totting up a few scientific blunders in works of fiction. Here they are :— The romances of Jules Verne are crammed &nbsp; with the most delicious scientific absurdli &nbsp; ties, which are introduced with a show of ponderous learning and a pretence of mathematical exactness that render them all the more enjoyable. As, how &nbsp; ever, these are not meant to be anything but &nbsp; absurdities, it woull be hardly fair to class them with the mistakes unconsciously made, &nbsp; the result either of ignorance or carelessness. Quite different, however, is the droll error made by the great romancer in " Round the World &nbsp; in Eighty Days," when he describes his hero as &nbsp; reaching his club just when the clocks were striking 9.50. This must have been an instance &nbsp; of momentary obliviousness, for clocks do not &...
Roses of Holigobalus. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
Roses of Holigobalus. When Alma Tadema and his wife were in Venice, a few years ago, they wore exceed ingly popular in Venetian society, and on leavilg, Mtrs Tadema was literally deluged aith bcquets of pink roses. In travelling, however, the flowere soon began to Ilde, and MIr Tadema amused herself by tossing the leaves about. Mr Tadema, like all good artists, is ever on the watch for " a bit of color" or a " fine scheme," and the falling rose leaves aroused his enthusiasm at once. " Why not paint them?" he thought. HIav ing chosen "The Feast of loses " for his subject, the next difliculty was to find the nose leaves. Imitation leaves were sent from Paris-some of paper, some of thin silk, but none seemed to produce the right efect. At last it was arranged that a largo box of real rosao should be sent from the south of France every week, an awning was placed on the balcony, and the artist's two daughters took turns in tossing the leaves. As a result of this care and patience, Mr Tad...
Evidence of Evolution. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
Evidence of Evolution. Southern negroes are gradually changing in appearance, and losing some of the birth markos peculiar to the African race. The now generation is showing the effects of a higher culture. Especially is this noticeable in the towna where contact with the whites shows its effect. The Ilat-nosed, kinky lheaded negro is passing away and becoming an unknown raco. All the colored children, no matter how dusky in hue, show the change. Among the females, long hair of that peculiar wooly appearance hangs in long braids or curls down their backs. Aquiline noses and smaller mouths with thinner lips are the rule. For years, and, in fact, ever sinac their freedom, the negresses have ecn deavored to do away with the short and kinky hair bestowed upon them by their an cestors. Much of their spare change is in vested in various hair tonics and invigoratoro and the long attention and eare bestowed uprn it is shown in their descendants. Tihe Stuth Georgia negro is an evidence of ev...

Ananias in 1888. A late dispateh recounts how, in a murder trial at Barkerville, Cariboo, a Chinaman was sworn the second time by cutting off a cook's head, and gave evidence unlike his former testimony. Being charged with this by the judge, the witness turned ashy pale, doubled up, fell insensible to the floor, and was so carried out. The Chicese claim that he will die in a month or eix weeks, as others have done who swore falsely when so sworn. Since the incident the witness has been gradually- sinking, anid his friensl expect him to die within the slotted time,
Miscellaneous. Mystery of the Comb. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
(flD|ceIlie eotto. Mystery of the Comb. IT would be ,urious to know what mystio meaning our Icrelathera attached to no simple an act as that of combing the hair. Yet wa learn from old church lhirttry that the hair of a priest or bichnp was thus combed scveral times during divine service by one of toe inferior clergy. Tho comb is mentioned as one of the essentials for urn during a high mess when sung by a bishop, and both in English and foreign cathedrals they were reckoned omongat the costly pos sessions of the church. Somo were made of ivofy, some wore carved, others gemmed with precious stones. Among the combs specially known to history are those of S,. Neot, St. Dunstan, and Malsohians That of St. Thomas, the martyr of Canterbury, is still to be eon in the Church of St. S-pulthro, at Thetford, and that of St. Cuthboet at Dur ham cathedral.
JEWISH WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 March 1894
JEWISHI WIT AND 1HUMOUlt. Tilts Chief Rabbi icecitly lectured to a crowde:l atudience at the London Institution on thle alove subject. Hie said that Renan, the great scholar, whose loss the world of culture and learning still deplores, made the tolnmwhat startling assertion that the Semitic tribes were lua6king in the faculty of .laughter. ,.A somewhat similar observa tion was made by Carlyle, who denied to the Jewish race the possession of humour. An ancient Talmudic adage told them that, if one person said, " thou hisass ns's ears, do not mind it. But if two repeat the assertion, then place a pack saddle upon thy back." It might indeed be imagined that if two such eminent authorities agreed in denying the faculty and tire power of evoking laughter there inust be some basis for the imputation. Ie thought, however, he would have no difficulty in disproving the charge. It was quite true tha:t several of tile nations of antiquity were singularly lack ing ill their perception of the lu...
