TRAPPED BY BUSHRANGERS. AN EPISODE IN THE CAREER OF [?]NED KELLY. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894

TRAI'PED BY BUSIIIANUGEIS.' AN EPI'ODE IN TIIE CAREER OF: NED KELLY. CHAPTER I. HE town of Jalowdrie, inu' New South S Wales, depends for its existence upon the sheep stations by which it is surrounded. Although the settled population of the town, at the period when the incidents of this story took place, only averaged about a couple of hundred people, yet it contained at least six large hotels, and they all seemed to do a thriving business. This was owing to the t large amount of traffic passing to and fro, for I Jalowdrie was on the coach road to Denili quin, which was the terminus of the railway line to both Mlelbourne and Sydney. Tihe distance between the two towns was about sixty miles, so that those whose busi. neos took them to any of the stations in the vicinity of the former place, generally required bed and board, and fodder for their a cattle, for a night or two. The nearest stationl was at least fifteen miles away, so a that the squatters' proverbial, hospitality I did n...

The bush- t ranger dreaded the vengeance of his P companions should any of themn escape, sl for if they were certain of his treachery they would follow him to the ends of " the earth to have revenge.

CATCHING A COLONEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894

CATChlING A C)OLONEL: rHP ....onel of the Red Hussare was :,, S Irishman, who was as proud of hii nationality as it is possible for an Irioshman to be, and that is not saying a little by any meaus. He carried his patriotism so for as to aver that not only were the Irish the finest, the most courageous, the most gifted of the four nationalities, but that nearly all the really great Englishmen were really Iri'h me. le justilled this Hibfernianism by a mode of rcasoning wlhicl was highly original, but not wholly convincing. It would have provoked shouts of laughter in the mes0 if it had proceeded from the lips of a subaltern, but the colonel was an altogether different porro;t todeal with. It would be dangerous to quarrel with him, and he was as peppery as a Lon don fog, oran old maid who has been jilted by the curate. It was considered tar nmore advisable " to give hint his head,' and let him exhaust himself by the o'ulence of his own effcrto. Whbol lie launolod out on his favourite t...

SCIENCE. Removing Needles from the Body. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 29 June 1894

SCIENCE. Eomoving Needles from the Body. Dr. Littlewood describes in Tl/e Lautre a method by which he has in seven oares sue. oeesfully removed needles from the body. The part supposed to contain the oeedle is thoroughly rubbed over with an electro magnet so as to magnetise the metal if pro Pent. A delicately balanced magnetic needle in held over the part. If the needle is present its position can be ascertained by the attrao. tion or repulsion of the poles of the magnetia needle. Uaving neoertained the preseneon of the needle, and rendered the part bloodleess and painless, an incision is made over the needle; the electro magnet is then inserted in the wound, and the needle felt for and withdrawn. If the needle in lirmly imbedded the positive pole of a galvanic battery in placed on the surface of the body of the. patient, and the negative pole in contact with the needle, which becomes loosened by electroloeis, and can then be easily removed by the electro magnet.

Colds. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 29 June 1894

Colds. It it eurprising, says a family phycician, how certainly a cold may be broken up by ai timely dose of quinine. When flrat eymptoms make their appearance, when a little languor, slight hoaraaenes and ominous tightening of the nasal membranes follow exposure to draughts or sudden chill by wvet, five grains of this useful alkaloid are seflioieut in many cases to end the trouble. But it must be done promptly. If the golden moment paseos, nothing esuliaee to stop the weary sneezing, handkerchief using, red nose and woo begone looking periods that certainly follow. By means of a recent invention, electri. city Is applied to the welding of metals. The. old and slow processes of welding iron and' steel on a forgo or anvil, which has long been familiar, will probably be superoeded. By the new process not only wrought iron and; steel can be welded,-but also other metals which have been considered poor subjects for the welding process; sueh as oast iron, breses German silver, copper, ni...

We hardly dare to speak of 10,000, of 20,000 years. But oven if we should admit 100 000 years as the ago of our species so slowly progressive, what would that be at the side of the apparently fabulous accumulation of centuries which have pre ceded us in the history of the planet? Al lowing but 100,000 .ears to the quaternary age (the existing age), we ee that the testiary period must have lasted 300,000 years, the secondary 1,200.000 years, the primary nearly 3000,000, and the ...
