W. Dowdeu occupied the chair. The lecturer, in intro ducing his subjeet, said that the object of the humorist was not merely to raise a laugh but also to excite our admiration and sympathy for worthy objects, and our contempt for unworthy.

Owing to the subject selected being so comprehensive, he could give only a short time to each, but he employed the time alloted to him in such a manner as to hold the attention of his audience throughout, as their frequent laughter ?nd applause testified. Several selections of music were rendered during the evening by Messrs and Miss Kennedy, which were well ...

Legislative Council Elections. CANDIDATES' ADDRESSES AT PETERSBURG. On Monday evening last, March 5, Messrs Gell, Addison, Aitchison, and Wornum, candidates in the coining election for the Northern District of the legislative Conn til, expounded their views before a goodly number of electors in the Petersburg Institute Hall, the chair being occupied by the Mayor, Mr W. Threadgold. MB Ggll said that although a stranger to most of his audience he hoped that he might say something that would fall in with their ideas and cause them to remember him kindly when the day of election arrived. The first question he proposed to speak on was the alteration in the status of the upper house. For some time past it had been a matter of surprise to him that the Upper House representatives should be elected for a term of nine years, while those of the House of Assembly were only returned for three. The members of the Legislative Council were the representatives of wealth and capital and .those of the...

Max O'Rell on Scotchmen. [PALL MALL GAZETTE.] [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 March 1888
Ilax O'Rell on Scotch men. [PALL MALL GAZETTE.] Max O'Rell agrees with Dean Ramsay in denying the truth of Sydney Smith's dictum about the surgical . operation. He even, goes so far as to pronounce the, Scotch "the most .witty" of all the inhabitants of the " more or less United Kingdom." And he not only says it, but he proves it-in an amusingly naive fashion. The Scotch have ap preciated Max O'Rell's lectures -better than the English. They know a'witty thing, that is to say, when they hear it:-Q.E.D. Next to their wit, what seems to have pleased him most about *tke Scotch is their democratic spirit. " In Scotland," he says " even the beggars have none of those abject manners . that denote their class .elsewhere/' and he illustrates his point by rathera nicestory:-. , " I remember one in Edin burg who stopped me politely, yet without touching his cap, and said-i-"You .look as if you had had a good dinner, sir; wont you give me something tk) buy a meal with?" I took him to a cook-sho...

The Use of Water at Meals. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 March 1888
Tlic Use of Water at Sleai*. Opinions diner es to the effect of the free ingestion of water at meal times, bat the view most generally received is probably that it dilutee the gastric juice and so retards digestion. Apart from the fact that a moderate delay In the process is by no means a disadvantage as Sir -William Roberts has shown in his explanation of the popularity of tea and coffee, it is more than doubtful whether any such effect is in reality produced. "When ingested during meals water may do good by washing out the digested food and exposing the undigested part more thoroughly to the action of the digestive ferments. Pep sin is a catalyptie body, and a given quantity will work almost indefinitely provided the pepstones are removed as they are formed. TUG good effects of water, drunk freely be foro meals, has, however, another beneficial result-it washeB away the mucus which is secreted by the mueus membrane during the intervals of repose, and favours peristalsis of the who...
POPULAR SCSENCE [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 March 1888
POPULAR SCSENCE, -- Rutgers is to have a .school of electricity and an improved Scientific Department. The college has received £15,000 by a recent Act. of Congress for experimental stations. Chemists have just determined by careful experiment that a man can barely taste 3-l,OOOths of a grm. of sugar, l-l,000tha of a grm. of salt and 5-10,000,OOOths of a grm. of strychnine. A Dr. Freund of Vienna proposes to core cancerous patients by reducing the quantity ef eugar in their blood, his theory being that cancer is caused by the presence of an abnormal quantity of sugar. A physician lecturing upon physical ex erciee declared that if only twenty minutes a day should be Fpent in physical exercise as an adjunct to mental education, we might lire to be seventy without a day's illness, and perhaps prolong our lives to ens hundred years.

THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 March 1888
THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-I noticed in a recent issue of your paper a lecture by Mr A. Dungey of Port Pirie, and 1 feel glad to notice that the sub ject in question is being dealt with in our country towns as well, as in our cities. Notwithstanding the fact that a few humbugs -representatives, BO called-of the S. A. Farmers' Association have thought fit to meet in Adelaide of late and carry motions in favor of the sale of Crown Lands, and Property taxes, etc., I firmly believe that should the sale of Crown Lands continue the ones now advocating it will, if they live a few years longer, bite their fingers in anguish. But why should these few be allowed to decide any such question as per the farmers of the colony, when half the farmers know nothing at all as to what their, so-called, representatives are doing. Before the toilers of South Australia will ever get their rights Landlordism must be put a stop to and the only method to bring this about is to carry out ths sugge...
