TEST OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
TEST OF DEATH. THE Queenslander publishes the follow- ing :-The Academy .of Sciences of Paris, in 1870, offered a prize of 20,000 francs for some simple and positive sign of death which any non-pro- fessional person could understand and ap- ply. The most prac- tical and satisfactory one given, says the British Medical Press and Circular, is men- tioned in a late num- ber of Airchow's "Archives." It de- pends upon the fact , that, no matter how profound the syn- cope, or how death- like the person may appeal-, if the circula ation continues, how- ever feebly, the per- son is not dead. All that is necessary is, therefore, to tie a string firmly round the huger of the sup- posed corpse ; if the blood circulates in the least, the whole fin- ger, from the string to , / \\ the tip, will swell/'^V^ .and generally turrj^A"^/ bluish red. This yffc/ &lt;. / ' is exceedingly sinrofe/ I; ¿ and conclusive. ! (i, ^
Temperance Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
temperance Scraps* BEFORE temperance societies came into fashion, a person who had a very red face . was one day rebuking his son for playing with gunpowder. " Gunpowder !"» said he, "I .will set my face against it." "Oh, father, do not, for the world !" answered hia son ; "if you do, we shall all he blown up." CAPTURING MONKEYS.-We find the fol- lowing in an exchange, in reference to the capture of monkeys in Africa, and cannot vouch for its truthfulness. Admitting the monkey's taste for strong drink, it provea them to be more nearly allied to humanity than we have previously supposed. Mon- keys are pretty common ; yet, as all the family are pretty cunning, has it ever oc- curred to the reader how they are taken ? Pitfalls will take a lion, and the famished monarch of the forest will, after a few days' starvation, dart into a cage containing food, and thus be secured. But how are monkeys caught ? The ape family resembles man. Their vices are human. They love liquor, and fall. In Da...

Interesting Statistics. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
ïntettstmg â>tattettc& A LEIPSIC bookseller calculates that 361,000,000 copies of Luther's translation of the Bible have been printed from the beginning to the present. The resident population of the United Kingdom, in the middle of 1872, was esti- mated at 31,858,933 ; that of England and Wales amounting to 23,074,600 ; of Scotland, to 3,39^,625 ; and of Ireland, to 5,3S6,708. THE PRINCIPAL EUROPEAN LANGUAGES.-A recent calculation relative to the principal European languages shows that English is spoken by 90 millions of persons inhabiting Great Britain and Ireland, North America, and the Colonies ; German by 55 millions in their own country, Switzerland, Hungary, Austria, Russia, North and South America, La Plata, Australia, and the East Indies ; Spanish by 55 millions in Spain, Cuba, Mexico, the Republics of South America, Manila, &c. ; and French by 45 millions in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, Cayenne, and North America.

WHAT IS A HORSE-POWER? [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
WHAT IS A HORSE-POWER? FEELING assured that, ere long, steam-power I will come into almost general use in all agri- I cultural work, we shall endeavour to prepare the road for its introduction among our farm- ing friends hy a few articles explanatory of its relative power, assistance, and cost. Thc first question to he decided is-What is a horse-power ? And how is it estimated ? This is an undecided question, even in England, as this extract from a very late number of the Gardeners' Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette proves : The theoretical horse-power, as all engineers and all readers of the Journal of the Society know, is 33,000 lb. raised one foot high in a minute, or the equivalent of this, i. e., such a number of pounds as will give, when multi- plied by the feet moved through, the sum of 33,000 as the result. It is not the settlement of this horse-power, then, which has occupied the Society from time to time, but the settle- ment of how many such theoretical horse- powers an ...
HOLE AND CORNER LIEE IN SYDNEY.—No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
HOLE AND CORNER LIEE IN SYDNEY.—No. 1. IN a recent issue we gave some pen and pencil illustrations of Hole and Corner Life in Melbourne, and it is our intention in this and some succeeding numbers of the NEWS to give some idea of the &nbsp; same sort of existence in Sydney. " Can there be any kind of life in this fair city that can aptly be classed as ' Hole and Corner ? '— somebody exclaims. Certainly, dear reader. Wherever you go you find the same distinctions of class and circumstance : the rich and the poor, the pure and the vicious brush through their three score years and ten in singular proximity to each other. In almost every city block you find the wearers of " purple and fine linen " and eaters of sumptuous fare forced to lift their dainty skirts from contamination by the passing beggar, who crawls daily from his contiguous hole- and-corner abode. How many different forms of animalculœ swarm on the stem of a single plant ! how many forms of hideous life are reveale...
SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
SPENCER'S ROYAL POLYTECHNIC. A large collection of amusing and instructive exhibits awaits the visitor at Spencer's. The lover of the curious in mechanical art will find plenty with which to satisfy his want. Ingenious models of all kinds of machinery ; large plates, illustrative of manufacturing processes, practical glass-blowing, working models, and automata of every description, wax-work figures, large and small, and music and dancing by the Spencer Family, are surely sufficient to draw an audience. Then there is a powerful galvanic battery with which to try the strength of your nerves, and a " Spirometer" to guage the capacity of your lungs, so that, altogether, the visitor to Spencer's must be hard to please if he goes away dissatisfied.
MESSRS. LOCKREY AND BOON'S BEDDING MANUFACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
MESSRS. LOCKREY AND BOON'S BED DING MANUFACTORY. WE lately had an opportunity of inspecting the processes carried.on at this extensive fac- tory by the above enterprising firm. The establishment is situated in Kent street, South, on the premises formerly known as Hollingshed's Mills, and the work consists in the making of paliasses, mat- tresses, and every other kind of bedding. One of the firm previously held the position of foreman at Reason's well-known mattress making establishment in Bridge-street, but, Bince October, 1872, the present business has been conducted by Messrs. Lockrey and Boon, as sole proprietors. The principal pe- culiarity of their trade is the reduction of the outside covering, or husk of the cocoa- nut into a fine springy fibre for stuffing beds and other kinds of upholstered work. The husks are purchased in large quantities, principally from some of the wholesale fruit- erers of the city-and the enormous col- lection we were shewn shows a surprising consumpt...

GOURLAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
GOURLAY'S VARIETY EXHIBITION. THE presence of the circus has militated con- siderably against the success of every other amusement in Sydney, but now that the ex- citing feats in the "ring" are to be with- drawn, the desire for recreation will be again directed to the exhibitions from which it has been withdrawn for a time. The great variety offered by such entertainments as Gourlay's is a principal attraction. After a short time devoted to the natural curiosities, with which the rooms abound, the mummy, the alligators, the South Sea Island museum, &c, the visitor can inspect.the mechanical wonders, and from these he can turn with satisfaction to the waxen effigies which bring to mind so many historical events. Runuing through the whole comes the pleasant music, the simple ballad, the concerted piece, and the comic scena. With such variety as this who could not enjoy a two hours ramble through the rooms ?

STEAM COMMUNICATION, [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
STEAM COMMUNICATION, Happily for mankind, is rapidly equalising .prices for all transportable articles over the world. The prices of our cereals will, for the future, command a much higher minimum than formerly ; for this minimum will be fixed, not by our colonial demand, lout by the margin of profit on the markets of Europe, and so will these distant markets, in a very short time, rule the value of our live stock, horses, cattle, and sheep. Now the farmer and grazier can unite their occu- pations with profit and confidence, and pro- duce grain and animal food that will meet Tvith a profitable and certain market, which .a few years ago was unapproachable, and even undreamt of. We feel assured that the whole manage- ment of our pastoral pursuits will meet with a radical change, and that farming will be discovered to be the most profitable invest- ment of time, capital, and energy, of any ?of the colonial occupations. There is no theory in this. South Australia bas practi- cally prove...
GEORGICS—BOOK H.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
GEORGICSPBoofc' Then did the'new eAà^iW first ß0&xf Nor other was the tcWmVf the yertf^yf When laughing heavxppjnïk^e^-eaôijirtli attend, And eastern winds thcH*'vintryh&lt;eath suBpond : Then slieep first saw theNw^jartpen fields ; And savage beasts were sent to stock the wilds ; And golden stars flew up to light the skies ; And man's relentless race from stony quarries rise. Nor could the tender new creation bear The excessive heats or coldness of the year, But, chill'd by winter, or by summer fir'd, The middle temper of the spring requir'd, When warmth and moisture did at once abound, And heav'n's indulgence brooded on the ground. For what remains, in depth of earth secure Thy cover'd plants ; and dung with hot manure ; And shells and gravel in the ground enclose; Forthrough their hollow chinks the water flows, Which thus imbib'd, returns in misty dews, And, steaming up, the rising plant renews. Some husbandmen of late have found the way, A hilly heap of stones ab...
CAULIFLOWER AND CABBAGE GROWING Versus GOLD GRUBBING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1873
CAULIFLOWER AND CABBAGE GROWING Versus GOLD GRUBBING. CAULIFLOWERS are selling in Sydney at from ninepence to one shilling each, and cabbages from twopence to sixpence retail. At these rates, allow the producers threepence each for the cauliflower and one penny for his cabbage. 4S40 will, with super-abundance of space, grow on an acre. The cabbages will produce £20 3s. 4d. the crop ; the cáuli flowers, £60 10s. Say, three crops of cabbages can be produced in two years on this acre of ground, this will make £221 16s. Sd. ; allowing for rent, manure, labour, &c, the odd £69 16s. Sd. there is then a return of 200 per cent, per annum, mind ; and the property improving the more, as the labour bestowed upon it is increased, not as in mining, where the labour is totally lost on the single event. Farming won't pay is the cry-if true, how have the many independent fortunes been made from it ? how the many many happy handsome homes established? and how are the many families supported ...

STEEDMAN'S SOOTHING POWDERS, FOR CHILDREN CUTTING TEETH. CAUTION TO PURCHASERS. Tho value of this well known Family Medicine has been largely tested in all parts of the world, and by all grades of society, for upwards of FIFTY YEARS. Its well-earned extensive salo has induced SP JRIOUS IMITATIONS, Borne of which in OUTWARD AP- PEARANCE so closely resemble tho original as to have deceived many purchasers. The proprietor, therefore, feels it due to the public to give a special caution against the use of SUCH IMITATIONS.
