An Escaped Lion. n-_ A lion, belonging to Bostwiok's Australian Circus, New York, recently broke from his cage in a barn at the corner of Eighteenth street. Everyone (says the London " Stan dard") fled from the building in terror, and the keeper fastened up the doors. As soon ns the furious animal broke loose he tore a horse -fortunately the only one in the stabie-to pieces. tinging with fury, the blood of the mangled horse dripping from his paws, the lion kept poessesion of the stable for hours. His roars were heard through several blo.ks, and the streets in the vicinity of the stable were filled with people. A squad of police, armed with rarolvers, arrived early on the scene, and several men were soon busy barricading the doors to prevent the animal breaking into the street. The keeper, a man named Dustock, accompanied by his wife and son, had, it is stated, arrived for the purpose of transfer. ring the lion to a wa~;go, to convey him to the Central Park.

A Deserter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893
A Deserter. -0- An event which has caused considerable talk in Woolwich garrison has been reported. A deserter named Thomas Roberts, an artilleryman, had been committed by one of the London mingistratesto lHolloway Gaol to awaitan escort.

Protection of Infant Life. LADY INSPECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893
Protection of Infant Life. LADYINSPEOCORS. By RITA. In feminine circles-amongst those who propose to be inspectors, also amongst those who expect to be inspected-there is much talk over the innovations in the working of the Infant Life Protection Act. We all know what these Innovations are. Ilriefy, a number of ladies will supervise the houses registered under the Act and keep a watchful eye on the nurses and infants. Ve all know that this step has not been taken before eickening disclosures have shown that it is a necessity unless we are willing to leave the plying of their villainous business as easy as possible for the baby farmer. We may regret the necessity of this innovation, but the matter has to be faced and met. So long as the harvestis plentitul,andthe harest in Melbourne is always plentiful, the laborers inthis particular sphere willnotrequire stimn .ltion if they can carry on their work without letting their right hand know what their left hand does.

POPULAR SCIENCE The Age of the Alphabet, [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893
POPULAR. SOlENOE The Age of the Alphabet, The source of the English alphabet may be found in the writing of a people who lived in the hills of Northern India some 3,000 years ago. As time went on, these people were ecattered from their native abodes, and many of them tcok' up their residence in Syria, the people of which country adopted their method of writing. A thousand years later the merchants of l'hsnicia oxtended their business operations to orv pct of theo'then ltil?lm lruold, bht findineg that trade could not be carried on to any very great extent without a method of communication, they searched for some suitable charactero for writing, and those used by the Syrians being the best obtainable were adopted. The Phenicians carried their newly-found alphabet to the Greeks, from whom it was adopted by the Romans. We now uee the Roman alphabet with slight modihoation. In passing through the hands of so many nation=, the alphabet had undergone a great change. When it left the India...
The Drink. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893
The Drink. There was a capital sketch in London "Punch" some time ago, illustrating in its own way the hold which the drinr ;question has taken on the minds and the naginings of people. A Bishop of socially-levelling principles is travelling third class on one of the underground railways. An honest workingman, seeing the clerical garb, ventures to askl the dignitary whether he is a curate. The Bishop, bland and gracious, but still having a certain senao o lioinl granilour, 5.ogine by saying gravely, " I was once a curate, my good friend, but "-and he is cut off in his explanation by the sympathetic working man, who sadly says, "' Ah, yes, that cursed drink !" Poor man, he naturally associated all theills of life with that cursed drink. He never thought of anyone comins down in the world unless by that evil influence.
Sunlight as a Microbe Killer. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893
Sunlight as a Microbe Killer. Dr Andrew Wilson, in " Health," thus discourses on the virtues of sunlight :-" I have alluded before to the effect of light on the developmentof germ-life, andhavesbown that wherever plenty of light is allowed access to microbic growths these living particles fail remarkably in their develop. ment. Light is, therefore, a natural enemy of germ-light, and this fact should be kept in mind by everybody. Certain re.searches have of late confirmed the destructive influ ences of light on the vitality of microbes. Thus, various kinds of disease.germs were placed in water, both of eterilised and non sterilisedkind. The germs, it may be added, were such as flourish naturally in water-to wit,thetyphoidbacillus,tho cholera-spirillium of Koch and others. The vessels containing water were divided into two series; one vessel in each experiment was freely exposed to light, the other (similar in every respect as to its contents and conditions) was en veloped in blackene...
THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893
THE WIDE WORLD. ---o There recently died in the Bjellerue Hos. pital, how York, an Indian who was described as a pathological giant. The man had been reported to be 8ft in height and to weigh 3.01b (or 25st), but the actual height was found to be Oft 7in, and the weight three hundred pounds (or a little more than twenty.two stones). Dr Charles L. Dana, who reports the ease, says that death took place suddenly, the imme. diate cause not being known. The brain was a little above the aver age else, weighing fifty-three ounces. There was great enlargement of the pituitarygland. This fact was one of great interest in view of the disease from which the man wassauffering-namely, acroieraly. In acromegaly it is usual to find the pituitary gland enlarged, as recorded cases have shown. Most of the overgrowth which hadgainedfor the man his reputation as a "giant " was due to the disease, and Dr Dana states thatit is probable that many cases which are now beingexhibited throughout the country a...
