A Nation of Suicides. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
4 N'ation of Suicides. DESPrIE our triumphs is medicine and sani tation it would appear from even a superficial study of the morality tables that we are nothing more than a nation of suicides and nothing less. We make, as a nation, elaborate preparations for the conservation of the national health. We constantly increase the bulk of sanitary legislation, and threaten the menace to hea.th with painful penalties, and all the tirte we are a nation of suicides. And with what weapon do we kill ourselvers ? With the weapon of imprudence and neglect. Every dyspeptio may have incipient Bright's disease of the kidneys, and yet how many thousand dyspeptics are there who make no attempt to treat their dyspepsia. "Bright's disease," says the celebrated Prof. Frederick Roberts, M.D., of London, England, "has no symptoms of its own." It begins oftentimes as an exceedingly chronic process, and may exist even for months or years without any symptoms occurring which direct attention to the kidneys. ...
Pollination of Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
Pollination of Flowers. -o It is proper to inquire how this is doze. botanists have aruranged and classified some thing like 120,000 plants. The show an tunfl nite variety and structure, aunwe would na turally expect that flowering plants should show diverl8ed arrangements to secure cross. pollination.. A few terms should be defined. Older writers of crosee-.fertilisation implying croes.pollinetiou. F'ertilisation can only occur after thepolh eufa reached the stigma and refers to the impregna tion of the ovule, or that proess by which pollen causes the embryo to develop. Polli nation is the conveyance of the pollen to the lany horticulturists use the word pollenisa lion, which ts incorrect, besides being a loege word. Itia justa easye to write correctly it i to use the poorly formed word. Plants are close pollinated when the pollen comes from the same flower, crosspollinated from another flower. Of course the gap is wider, asys Palmer in "Colman's IMral World," and it in more advant...
Tape Worms in Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
Tape Worms in Sheep. M----o The outlay formedicine for single sheep is in significant, but the cost for drugs for a large flock,tosay nothing of the time occupied no drenching, is a considerable item-an addi tional reason for thoroughne's, and a deter mination to dea'roy every specimen possible, in order to prevent animals becoming infested in future. The best, the cheapest, an well as the most common remedy, is turpentine, but this may with advantage be cor iued with other vermi. fuge agents, of which the liquid extract of the male shield fern is an example. A useful mixture is eual part of spirit of turpentine, extract of male fern, tincture of asaluoutia and linreed oil. Tho dose should vary with the breed, size and age of the animals, but half a fluid ounce is an average dose, and it should be given in a small quantity of gruel, milk or more linseed oil, as avehicld. Another formula in good xepute is :-Tur. peutine, 3oz.; tincture of asafetida, lIoz.; oil t of cloves, II drachm ...
A Cheap Rustic Anvil [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
A Cheap Rustic Anvil As anvils are so expensive, a contributor to the-'American Cultivator" says he once ema ploged a hard granite bowlder as a convenient tlbetitute for an anvil. A large and strong barrel was sawed in two equal paris by separticg it at the bilge, thus making two trong hal.barrel tubs, one of which washooped with strong iron hoops. It was then filled about two.thirds of the distance to the top with large gravel stones, after which a pailful ortwo of thin cement mortar was poured into the tub: then the bowlder which was to serve the purpose of an anvil was placed in the tub wtth a broad and smooth aide up. Thebowlder would weigh about t01wb.; and it rested on the upper ends of some of the staves of the tub, and in part on the cuarsa gravel in the tub. After the bowlder was placed in position, emall cobble stones were thrust into the mortar to scotch up the bowlder on every aide. After the expiration of a few months the cement mortar had become so hard that the rastie...
Remarkable Facts in Natural History. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
Remarkable Facts in Natural History. An adder was found alive in the centre of a block of marble 7Oit. in diameter in June, 1772. It was folded nine times round in a spiral line; it was in culable of supporting air, and died a few minutes after. Upon examining the stone, not the smallest trace was to be found by which it could have glided in. Miseon, in his travels through Italy, men. lions a cray-fish that was found alive in the midst of a mas of marble in the environs of Tivols. The kinge's physician at Guadalonpe, having ordered a pit to be dog at the back of his house, was told by the workmen that live frogs were found by them in beds of petrifac tion. Suspecting some deceit he descended into the pit, dug the bed of rock and leetrefae. tions, and drew out geen frogs, which were alive and exactly similar to what we see erery dav. serpents are said to obey the voice of their master. The trumpet-bird of America follows its owner like a spaniel, and the Jacana acts as a guide and gu...
The Habits of Centenarians. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
The Habits of Centenarians. Sir George Humphry has investigated the life histories of centenarians in England, with the view of ascertaining the causes and circum stances of longevity. The report was pub lished by the Collective Investigation Com mittee of the Britieh Medicel Association in S1S7. As one reads of the habits and life of these men and women who attained to the age of 100 years and more, one is struck by the fact thatthey were almost invariably lean people, of spare habit, one of great moderation Seatingand drinking. Of thirty-seven, thres took no animal food, four took very little, twenty alittle, ten a moderateamount, and only one acknowledged taking much meat. With regard to alcohol, the returns sia much the same, and abstemiousness is found to bh the ruleof life of these centenarians. Fifteen had been total abstainers, either during the wholeor part of their lives; two took very little alcohol, twenty-two a little, and ten a moderate amount. Sir Grorge Humnbry's int...
Plants as Barometers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
Plants as Barometers. A French observer, named bM. Cana, has been for some time past closely observing the action of several common plants when the barometer indicated a change of weather. He found that if the heads of clover and other leg?minous plants stand upright there will be rain. If the leaves cf the sorrel turn up, it is a sure sign of storm, which is also foretold by the leaves of willow gras slowly turning up. The closing of the flowers of convolvulus indicates ramn, which, as is so generally believed, maybe said of the flowers of the pimpernel, and also the hibiscus flowers. When the floeres of the sorrel opea, it is said to be a sure sign of fine weather, but if they close it will rain, if the flowers of the carline thistle close, there will be a storm. The expanding flowers of cinquefoil suggest rain, but their closing means fine weather. The African marigold flowers close boefoe rain; while the scales of the teasel, pressing close together, pretty surely mean rain.--" ...
AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
ACRICULTURAL COLUMN. Butter coloring makes summer butter look nice, but after all do we really require to usel~ In England many are averse to -using either butter orcheese that hae been artficialyeoored, and their prejudice in this threction cannot be overcome. It is an unjust prejudice, however, o far as affectineg quality is concerned, as pre-o. pratrtions of annatto are of vegetable origin and re pronounced harmlesse. The vegetable dyets so powerful in coloring effect also that but an inllnitesimal amount is contained in a pound of butter or cheese. If the filth that often goes Into butter and cheese through slack methods of straining milk could be eliminated and placed before the con. eumer's eyes, he would have cause for alarm and disgust. Personal choice, however, in this matter should alwvos be respected as what is not pleaeng to the eye is generally distastefut to the palate.

And as the music softly fell, It seemed to weave some magic spell Of mightypower o'er our thourht, A peace and beauty with it brc.ight, And castles wonderful and fair, We built neon the empty air.

And she then, glancing overhead, Where waving leaves and branches spread, Whispered so tenderly and low; "Is not that plant the mistletoe I" 'Twas not, it might as well have been, 'Twas Christmas Ere-we were unseen. -"Puck."

A SCIENTISTS STRANGE EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
A SCIENTISTS STRANCE EXPERIENCE, The subjoined story, from the San Fran. isaco "Chronicle," will be of particular interest to the newly-formed Society for Psychical Research: It Is not necessary to go to the length of asserting that the following extraordinary incident in the early life of Sir Richard Owen, the English scientist, who died 1Sth December, 1592, was the sole reason that the "Newton of Natural Science" held viewa on the subject of theimmortality of the soul diametrically opposed to those of Spencer, Darwin or Huley. That it was a factor in modifying his opinion on the matter there can be little doubt. There is his word for it that the story as here related is absolutely true. Sheen Lodge, the reesidence in the royal park at Richmond, given to the pro. fessor by Queen Victoria, was built by the famous Adelphi Brothers ti one of the cast-off mistresses of George IV.

A Small Philosopher. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 December 1893
A Small Phiosopher. She was a sturdy little woman of eight years or thereabouts, comfortably butporly dressed, and carrying a big market basket on her little arm. Her face was pressed close to a window pane, inside of which were Christmas dolls in their holiday finery. A lady who was noticing thelittle one inquired "Would you like to have one of those dolls to play with" "No'm," answered the child, after a mo: ment's consideration. ",Whynot?" SShouldn't have time to play with it." "What can a little girl like you have to do?" "I takes care of the baby and does the marketin' for the family." " Thenyou wouldn't care for a doll?" "Na'm. It can't qunrril an' make up like areal baby. I like to look at 'et in there best." The unconscious bit of wisdom in the child's answer had been voiced by a greater philoso pher who, when he looked into the shop win dows. accustomed himself to say "How many things there are that I do not want"
