FATAL ACCIDENT ON THE KERANG LINE. A PYRAMID RESIDENT KILLED. PYRAMID, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 19 November 1889
FATAL ACCIDENT ON THE KERANG LINE. A PYRAMID RESIDENT KILLED. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) &nbsp; PYRAMID, MONDAY. On Saturday night a fatal accident hap- pened on the railway about 11 miles north of Pyramid. A young man named P.H. &nbsp; Buckley, son of Mr. Michael Buckley, of this town, started from Mincha to walk into Pyramid along the line. He was seen at the gate house two miles north of Pyramid about 8 p.m., and after the 9 p.m. train for Kerang had passed this gate, the driver stopped his train and informed the gatekeeper, Mr. Roach, that there was something wrong with the line about a quarter of a mile back. Roach took his lamp and walked down the line, when he came across the dead body of Buckley lying between the rails. Constable French was informed of the sad occurrence, and immediately repaired to the scene of the accident, accompanied by Mr. Roach. On a close examination of the line they found the deceased had been dragged 35 yds., the body being terrib...
THE SHADES OF NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 22 November 1889
THE SHADES OF NIGHT. SLtowL unfurl the shades of night, Slowly the mints, a grayish white, With clammy touch and ghostly tread, Rising, over the valley spread. Floating,-they fill the meadosw dim, Even thecchurchyardl, lone and glint, Nestling thereon tlG-riwertbrink. . The tall, lean gravestones rise and sink Like spectre fingers, bhare and white, Pointing into tile silent night. Over the river, black and cool, Down by a lonely, misty pool, Is heard the nightinggle's silvern eon, Rtising so pure, and clear, and ion, There in the church- ard shrubbery. The tall church spires rises high Into the cold-specked, tremnbling sky, Awhile the mists, slowly settling down, Deep in the river sink and drown ; As the moon appears in the sky above All unbid, like the go olof love, A n old man sits by a grave alone, I With his gray head hboe.l on a masy stone The nightingale singeth softlv and low t As the wavering shadlows conic and go I There in the church-var. shrubbeger The old man sleeps, and...

BARDS OF PASSION10 AND OF MIRTH. BAnos of passion and of mirth, Ye have left your souls on earth ! Have ye souls in heaven, too. Double-lived in regions newt .. Thus ye live on high, and then On the earth ye live again ; And the souls ye left behind you Teach us here the way to find you Where your other souls are josing, Never slumberol, never cloying. Here your earth-born souls will speak To mortals, of their little wee k; Of their sorrows and delight., Of their passions and their spites. Of their glory and theirshame, What doth strengthen and vbat maim. Thus ye teach on, everyday, Wiedom, though fled far away. Bards of psasion and of mirth. Ye have left your souls on earth ! Ye have souls in heaven, too, Double-lived in regions new. IC?Ar. No one in anger is fit to estimate an offence or redress a wrong; ansod he who attempts it is sure to have cause for regret, if not for bitter repentance.
CRICKET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 22 November 1889
CRICKET NOTES. [By AN ExnTIIUSIuST.] i As the cricket season of 1889.S00 has now fairly counnenced, I think it will not be out of place to take a look at Ilthose who are acting the part of " knights of the willow." I notico that, besides the ol( Kerang Oltub a new club hal s been started in the town. I refer to the Trades men's Club. In my opinion this is a good thing for the cricket-loving portion of the communnity, as it ought to create a friendly spirit of rivalry, and thus frequently fur nish a good afternoon's sport during the season. First of all I will review the players of the Kerang Club. To continence with, there still remain in the ranks those old veterans at the game, Messrs. Stranger, Crawford, Truman, Sabine, M'Carthy, Stott, and Tregear, and, if they come up to their usual form, should be a thorn in the side of some of their opponents. I also observe that some of the old mlemlbers of the now defitnet Jntiors have taken up the cudgels on behalf of the same club, and I ...

WHY TEETH DECAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 22 November 1889
WHY TEETII DECAIY. DECAr of the teeth (coris) is exceedingly common, especially anongcivilised people. The lack of power to resist this dise.ase may be due to the depression of vital vigoi r through over taxing the nervous s.ysem or through sedentary babits and luxurious livig. In this, as in other matters, there are itherited tcndtncies, and the children of these whose teeth decay , early tbemselves suffer the snmo -evil. Biut what is the ititmediate cauce of dental'decayl The solution is found in the germ theory, wlhich has already settled the origin of so many infec tions diseases. T~lhe miscroscopie germ, which are called bacteria, the -smallest of rganoised beings, so small that it takes 100,00) of themo placed lengthwise to measure an incl?, belong to the plant family. They multiply both by division and by the formation of spores.' The Epores, which correspond to seeds, have great vitality, and are unaffected by the temperature that would destroy the perent plant.

THE RAILWAY COMMISSIONERS SALARIES. The debate on the proposed increase of the salaries of the l.Railway Cotnuissioners in the Lcgislative Assembly on Tuesday was long an:md tedious. In the Appropria tion Bill in item appe wed to give the chairmllan of the Con1llissioners an extra £1000 a year, making his sa'ary -i4000, and to give the olher two Comnuissioners .0500 each, imaking a total of £2000 each. There was somne hope thant the decision of the previous 'Thursday might be reversed, because there were lre ore mellmbers present. On that day a Parliamientiry trip took place to Caimperdown, and the members who took part in it asserted that they had been kidnapped on that day by Messrs. Anderson and Uren, who took them away, knowing that the proposed increase of the salaries was t:; come on t'at date. Those two members laughed at the joke. Tlhey were :unised that anyone should consider thlem to be so crafty. However, the op. ponelllts of the increase were not success fil in their opp...

WHAT IS LOVE? LT CARLTJO HUGHES. "Now what is love' I must confecss J wonder as I dare to guess. Perhaps a substance light as air, Perhaps a vision sweetly fair, Perhaps a dream, perhaps a fact, Perhaps a thought, perhaps an act Perhaps a fruit w earn to eat; Perhaps a somethign far from sweet. It blinds the eyesto every ill, It captures judlmeint, fetters will; It throws a glaimourovcr all; And'deafens'ears to feason's call. It bends us totyeranic rule, And serves alike the sage and fool It weaver anet llihearts about, And Ioigis'Rihen they eannot get ont. 'Tins grandly brlliant to the young, It gleams in eyes, it drops from tongue, Its volume may no te so much, But yet he felt in gesttlet touch. It thrills ybu'as electrie shock, It melts the ice, it retds the.rock, It throws o0er all m~stic spell, Then what is lore I -caiiot tell.

RUST IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 22 November 1889
RUST IN WHEAT. 'fito following description of the fungoid disease known as "rLst," taken frnom the Miilrlar, Cullibtlor, gives the life history of the parasite with accuracy. The pest ha:s manifested itself in many parts of South Australia, and lightly at Mlildura, antI as sulphur is an antidote to, or pre. ventative of, all attacks of low fungoid growths, the season should not be allowed to pass over without its being tried ex hauustively : " Wheat rust is due to the attacks of several species of minute fungi, and is developed in its elementary stages upon weeds. This rust belongs to a division whiclh is capable of developing several distinct forlms in the course of ai year: andl at least oneo form appears on a plant very different from that lupon which its first for in develops. The transfer of this disease from one host plant to another is accoimplisihed by means of unn lllloros smalll spores fromll the preceding growth. The life history of these plants may heo divided into three...
