An Extraordinary Story. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
An Extraordinary Story. "WE take tho following singular statement of an accident and subsequent suffering from tlie 'Hamilton Spectator:'-We are- not in the habit of giving two reports about an accident, but the particulars not having been made known at the 'time, owing to the unconsciousne ss of the sufferer, are worth recording. It will be remembered that some ten months ago. we published ari account of Mr. Birnie, of this town, having been found, with a. fractured collar-bone and a ruptured blood-vessel in the head, on Messrs. M'Pher son, Brothers' station, where he was employed. The information then given was necessarily very : scant, and Mr. Birnie's account of the affair may therefore be deemed interesting. He was returning to the station from Penola on the 24th April when, in jumping a wire 1 fence, he was thrown from his horse, and received the injuries doscribed. For seven days and six nights he was lying close to tho fence without so much as a drink of water to wet his par...
How to Obtain Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
How to Obtain Sleep; THOUS ANDS (says the . ' Medical Examiner ') stiffer from wakefulness who are otherwise in good ' health. To some of thom this becomes a habit, and too often a growing one. Some resort to soporific drugs, and this is "how the opium crave is often initiated. Others find wino or spirits occasionally effectual, and are thus induced to take alcohol every ''. night, and not . a few,:it is to be feared, have in this way laid the founda-' tion of intemperance. There have, however, nevor been wanting .people who have-found a way of going to sleep without resort to such measures. The mesmerists at one time were I popular,, and from them a host of people ! learned that looting at any. .fiiôJ point steadily! -would often succeed in. inducing I aloep, In tho dark, however, this Li not sp i easy but this . difficulty,. was -.riot'. felt in ; Braidlsm, which consisted mexvrlr'in' closing ¡ the eves- and trying to think they were ! watching attentively . the . stream pf air j ...
The Treatment of Fevers. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
The Treatment q£ Fevers. TBS word fever has a terrible significance to the mother in the bush who finds her child hot, dry, and peevish ; and to the' bushman who 'finds his mate laid low or unable to proceed. Fevers are as numerous as the fanciful and very often meaningless names given to the diseases of this kind ; and all brought on by ' some irregularity of the system-the result of exposure, unwhole- some food or air-in many cases the result of cold. The symptoms aré quick pulse, furred tongue, languor, inability to make exertion, shivering,, thirst, loss of appetite. Cold-dlothus bring relief '. when tho patient is hot, hot .applications when he is cold. Gentle purgatives are good in all cases, carbonate of soda and tartaric acid, in the form of effervescing drinks, being amongst the best. Moisten the lips and tongue frequently. Á. "fever' patient requires but little food, and that'little should be easy of digestion, ns the powers of the stomach are at a standstill . for the ' t...

Water Fleas [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
Water Fleas A PAPER of considerable interest to water drinkers "on the presence of water, fleas in potable waters " waa read at the meeting of the Edinburgh Naturalists' Field Club last week by Mr. Ivison Macadam. - Water fleas proper are, it seems, of. two kinds-the daphnia and the cyclops, aud are to bo fouud in every reservoir, impounded water, and notural lock in Scotland. The daphnia has its feeping grounds in the shallow waters, and the cyclops in the deep ; but as they cannot be effectually filtered, they .are discovered abundantly in all the cisterns in Edinburgh. A single cyclops can reproduce in a year no fewer than 4,442,189,120 of its species, and the difficulty of providing for these largo -families would no doubt tax the energies of the parental cyclopses to the ut- most, hut that fortunately they and their children are the favourite and principal food of the ordinary gnat and water beetle. Curiously euough, the cyclops, although so small as to be almost invisible to t...
Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
DEATH. — We regret to have to record the rather sudden death of Miss Josephine Girard, which took place at the Lismore Station, on Sunday morning last, after a short illness of five days. Those who had the pleasure of Miss Girard's acquaintance bear testimony of her kindness of disposition and amiability of character, and her death following so closely upon that of the late Mrs. Girard, has inflicted a severe shock upon the surviving members of the family. The deceased lady was conveyed to her last resting place by the steamer Lismore on Monday last, and all the business places in town being closed, a large number of persons attended the funeral.
New Fruits. THE JAAK FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
New Fruits. THE JAAK FRUIT. THE jack-fruit, or entire-fruit tree, is a native, of tue Indian and Malayan archipelagos, and flourishes especially- in ;the .M-'IKSCÄS* It is extensively cultivated in Ceylon and many parts of tropical Asia, and has long since been introduced into tho Wc3t Indies, whore it .is completely naturalized. This tree .attains a good size, in the Weat Indies rerohing a height of about thirty feet, with a 'trunk three feet in cii-cumferenee ; but, .according'to "Roxburgh, in its native locality in thc Malayan Islands it is to be found with a trunk measuring sometimes from eight to twelve feet round, which is covered with a tough, dark-coloured, deeply-cracked 'bark. .Every part of the .tree yields a copious, viscid, '.?milky juice, when wounded, from which, in the East Indies, excellent bird-lime is made. The branches are numerous and spreading in every direction, and BO completely clothed with leaves that* they form an ample pro- tection ifrora the rays of the ...
The Blacks at Cooktown. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 17 March 1877
The Blacks at Cooktown. Tufe late frightful murder of the Macquarie brothers, by the blacks, is thus referred to by tile Cooktown correspondent of the 'Tele- graph :'-There is no doubt now as to the fate of the two Macquaries. Pooi' fellows, their dentil must have been a prolonged agony,, judging by the report brought back by the party of police sent out from here, and who returned on Wednesday last, having traced out the tragedy to its termin- ation. It appears that from the place where the dead horse was found on the road the searchers followed the tracks U2> a small creek, and in a short distance found the remains of a pack-horse, a broken-up saddle, a letter, some papers, and other fragments belonging to the dead mon. Further ' bn wis another dead horse, and beyond it a tall Crowned straw hat. Frem this point the poor men must have ' run for their lives. The tracks Went from tho creek up a ridge. At some . distance, the first of the. brothers must have met his fate. Confused ...
