Old Time Amusements. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 21 January 1891

Old Time Amusements. Those who are acquainted with the customs of old Spanish towns in California know what cascarones are, and are probably fa miliar with the ways of using them and the additional'enjoynmeat they lend to all dances where they are used. To such of our readers who are not well posted in the matter we will attempt to give a few words of explana tion. The origin of the custom of cascarone breaking is prohably surrounded with 's im. penetrable mystery as the identity of the Man in the Iron Mask." It was brought to California by the'early Spanish families from Mexico, and up to within a few years past it was an attractive feature of every dance given tluriung certain portion of the year. Cas. carone season begins, according to e, atom, at 12 o'clock Christmas night nud lasts till Ash Wednesday, and any one of the old chizens can tell of the grand times tcascaroue balls in the Ilush days when the custom was at its height. . Dances were of almost nightly oc ceirrencethen, ...

Science of Hypnotism. What the Treatment Is and How. It Is Worked. APsondo-SIlopInto Whicha. Patient With an Aptitude for It CamaBo Made to Fall-Somnambulism tho Last Stage of the Trance. The histcry of hypnotism forms part of the history of the marvellous in human exhitence, writes Dr. J. Luys in a contem porary. In reality it is found under different names at all periods of history, from the in cantations of the ancient Egyptian magicians down to the fascinations of leemer, and the investigations of Braid, to whom modern hypnotism owes its name and its appear ance in the realm of science. Braid mastered all the leading characteristics of the several hypnotic stages and had a profound convic tion of its utility as a remedial agent in all diseases in which th nerves play a more or less visible part. IIypnotism is an experimental extra physiological condition of the nervous eys tem, a pseudo-sleep into which a patient with an aptitude for it can be made to fall, and during which he l...

Palpitation of the Heart. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 21 January 1891

'alpitatlioRn of the IIcart. Dr. Nebo (inuJer:ral ,ic .Sravrc) says that an excessivo palpitation of the heart can al. ways be arrested by bending double, with the head downward and the hands pendent, so as to produce a temporary congestion of the upper part of the body. In almost all cases of nervous or anemic palpitation, the heart immediately reEumee its natural function. If the respiratory movements be suspended during this action, the effect is only the more rapid. Eveno man lives for others as well ashim self ; and, while the tenor of his life should be that of cheerful industry in his calling, he should keep open every avenue to com passion, and liberality. The business of such a man is habitual, and includes no unreasonable cares; his benevolence is uni. form, and finds opportunities for exercise. He lives reputably, and is beloved by his contemporaries. In this way he secures a fair share of happiness. Tno best inelacce of true politeness is when a bald-headed man lifts his...

At one instant its head was elevated, and a cloud of fume issued from its organs of respiration ; it then raised its mountain-back, bristling with the goad. ing harpoon, which it triad to displace by various contortions of its body; finally throw ing itself into a perpendicular posture, with its head downward, and its monstrous tail lifted to a tremendous height, it made ths lobes crack by the effort with which they whirled'in either direction, and dashed them upon the surface with a violence that could not have failed to annihilate whatever had opposed its force.
