REMARKS ON TYPHOID AND SCARLET FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 10 May 1878
REMARKS ON TYPHOID AND SCARLET FEVER Typhoid and scarlet fever having existed for some time in Kerang and the surrounding district, I beg to offer some observations with reference to their causes and laws .of infection. Much diversity of opinion on the sub ject prevails among medical men res pecting the former, viz. typhoid. Some believe it to be caused by the effluxion fromn putrid animal matter, and from drinking. water contaminated by sew age, others again attributing the dis ease to a specific poison, and denying that it may be spontaneously generated by putrid animal matter. ' My own be lief is that whatever lowers the vital powers will in some houses wlhen the epidemicprevails induce the disease,and the causes may be one or several viz. a. -Exposure to prolonged and in tense heat. 2. Mental shock. 3. De bility from previous disease. 4. In sufficient and unwholesome food.. 5. Working in wetclothes, and exhalation from putrescent .animal matter..,.. 7. Watertaintedbysewage. S. E...

WELL SINKING. COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 17 May 1878
WELL SINKING. COMMUNICATED. In a former issue we made suggestions upon dam making.- Acco ding to promis, our next subject is well sinking. As ihis will hare to be resorted, to ore or less according to the nature of our seasons, and although it is the most expensive mode where a largo number of stock have to he watered, yet there have been times when it has proved the salvation of the district, in many places where cattle and stock would have to be driven long distances to permanent water. In well sinkin5 the great. difficulty is to keep back the sand drifts where the water lies, and yet at the same time to allow the water to flow into the shaft.

LoNDox, March 2S. The French press praises England's attitude, and the leading German papers counsel Russia to give way, as in the event of war England would be certain to obtain allies, whilst no power would join Russia against England. Telegrams from Constantinople state thatthe Russian troops are very anxious to return home without further war. The Grand Duke Nicholas arranged to embark a portion of the.army at Bujuk dere, and the Russian troops approached that locality, whereupon Mr Layard intim ated that the British fleet would enter the Bosphorus if the Russians occupied Bujuk dere. Fifty thousand Turks accordingly concentrated there, and the Russians abondoned the idea. They assert that they cannot at present embark, as San Stefano is an exposed port, and allege that England's action has delayed...
