AN UNWITTING DELILAH. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
AN UNWITTING DELILAH, Br S.O.U. It was in the far-north of Queensland, and night's mantle, as black as the natural covering of Pluto's treble-headed canine palace-keeper, had descended upon the enuriferous gullies and ill-defined highways of Red (um. The close and heavy air Shung like a pall of lead over the heated underworld; beyond the precincts of the camp a few idle roysterers had lit a Christ mas bonfire to celebrate the anniversary of something or other-they scarcely knew what; it flared with an uncertainty, por chance begotten of the speculative char. aoter of Its surroundings; flickering iii wierd, ghoul-like laps, that at intervals, with a clarity only excelled by the blaze of nature's greatest of boeacons, lit up the adjacent gullies and mounds, and threw the figures and features of its red-shirted brigand-like creators into intense relief, while their statuesque immobility, so distinctly disproportionate to the alter nating lengths and breadths of their varying shadows, a...

NORTHERN MINING FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
j;NORTHERN MINING FIELDS. The advent of Charters Towers into the history of Queensland is of more import ance to the colony than the " Birth of a King;" indeed it has proved the real "Saviour of Queensland." It is important to the colony in mord waysthan one.W The date of its birth was opportune as it oc curred just exactly when it was most re quired, as at the time the Colonial Treasury was very empty, and sadly needed the support which a new gold field can always afford. Another reason of the importance of this field is the great influx at the comlmencement of the right claso of pioneers, so as a matter of fact, Charters Towers is the parent of the great mineral discoveries which followed immediately. It was the sturdy . sons of. toil--by the extension of their operations-that discovered first the "Palmer," next the " Hodgkinson," followed up by" Woolgar," "Herberton," and other smaller mining fields. Butfromall its offspring Charters Towers, stands pre-eminent as a parent ought. ...

When Sir Arthur mounted the conductor's box he. was cheered to the echo by the occupants of the two first rows of the' stalls, and be noticed that these were all men, ill-favoured looking fellows, who wore pea jackets, and carried knobby sticks, and had short hair. As the opera progressed their appreciation of all the conductor did was most emphatic, and, at the conclusion of the performance one of their number stepncd forward and asked the author of " Pinafore" to come. ...

MWELBOURNE TRADE NEWS. Mr. W. Perrier, the secretary of the :Stonemasons' Society, has received the fol lowing letter from Mr. Amos Yewdall, the representative of the Melbourne Stone masons' Society in the Trades Hall Coun cil of that city: " Sir.--Pursuant to your letter and tele gram, I at once advertised the strike at Manly Beach in both Age and Herald. As I was unable to attend to it regularly, I requested the secretary and treasurer of the Society to. continue the ad '.rertisement, which they continue to do. I am sorry to see from a telegram that appeared in the Argus of last week that Mr. Jennings still holds out, but there is nothing like fighting him with his own weapons, you being determined on gaining your point. I do not think he will have any success in obtaining men from Melbourne, as trade is very good at present. For all that, we have had a large influx of masons from Adelaide. There are very few men left over there now, as trade has been in.afrightful state, and the ...

Strong Children.-A clergyman says it is curious to note how many people attend a pantomime " only because they want to please their children; but still more curious to observe that in many instances it takes two or three able-bodied men, with as many women, to look after one, little boy of girl." 1Professor Marsh, the distinguished American palaeontologist (than whom no man alive is more fitted to speak on the subject) says that the mammals of the early tertiary period had very small brains; in the next, or misocene period, the mammalian brain had increased in size; in the pliocene period it had still further developed. Moreover, this increase was due to the growths of the cerebrnum, or higher parts of the brain. Indeed, from the oolitic period to our own-in reptiles, birds, and mammals-tlho same general law of growth and development of brain holds good.
