Science. In a Conning Tower. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
In a Conning Tower. A writer in Murray's haigazine says: Hero in this spot is ooncentrat:d the whole power of the tremendous machine which we call an ironclad ship. Such power v as never, rince the world began, concentrated under the direction of man, and all that power, the judgment to direct it, the knowledge to utilise it, is placed in the hands of one man, and one only. What is this power Talk of Jove with his thunderbolts, cf Nasmyth with his hammerI the fables of mythology and the facts of latter day sosence I wherm has there ever been anything to compore to it? Here in the conning tower stands the cap tain of thoship, and beneath his feet lie hid den powers which the mind can scarcely grasp, but which one and all are made sub servient to his will, and his will alone. Pio ture him as he stands at his post before the battle begins; all is quiet enough, there is ecaroely a sound save the lapping of the water against the smooth sides of the iron. clad, and no outward sign of forc...

Current Reading. The Word[?] are Use. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
Cunrent Rearbn4. The Wf! ord,' anr VTS. At at educational meeting held in this SNtto a few years ago the conductor, a noted professor, made the following statement : "The best educated person in this room will not use more than 1100 or 700 words." He assigned a smaller slating that an ignor. ant man would not use nullmber to perons of limited edt?cation, more than 200 to 300 words. I had before seen statements of similar import in public print, and to test their correctness I began an investigation of the matter. The subject was brought anew to my mind by observing an article in the Chautauquan sonime months ago, in which Prof. Bancroft remarked : "It has been estimated that an English farm hand has a vocabulary limited to 300 words. An American working-man who irea:ns the lneIpapeIurs may command 700 to 1000 words. Five thousand is alarge number,. even for all educated reader or speaker." This asse tion is much nearer the truth than thato! the institute conductor mentioned. For tho...

The Care of Lamps. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
The Care of LaDnps. The disagreeable flickering of a student lamp is sometimes caused by tiny particles of tih wick dropping into the inside tube of the c) Ildiler surrounding the wick, thus prevent. ing the =oil flowing freely from the barrel. B-Dftre r serting .a new wick remore the oil barrel And empty.thbo amp entirely of oil, pour into the opening, down the wick cylln. der and wherever fluid will touch Inside, holling water to which has been added a snoonful of spirits of ammonia. Lamps are now so univcrsally used that the care of them has become one of the daily and most important of domestic duties, not only of the country but of the luxurious city home. If not attended to every day, the perforations of the burners be. come clogged with carbon and dust in a snort time, refuse to move easily, the light is dimmed, and a m?st unpleasant odor en If occasionally our duties exceed the limits of our time, antd we find the wick well-nigh consumed, a strip of old soft cotton may be pi...
Ladies' Column. A Vain [?] [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
SaLnbe's Q~oain. I We started one morn, my love and Io On a journey brave and bold ; 'Twas to find the end of the rainbow, And the buried bag of gold, But the clouds rolled by from the summer sky, And the radiant bow grew dire, And we lost the way wbers the treasure lay, Near the sunset's golden rim. The twilight fell likea curtain Pinned with the evening star, And we saw in the shining heavens The new moon's golden car. And we said, as our hands clasped fondly; " What though %#e found no gold t Our love is a richer treasure Than the rainbow's sack can hold." And years. with their joys and sorrows, Have p;ssed since we lost the way To the beautiful buried treasure At the end of the rainbow's ray; BOut love has been true and tender, And life has been rich and sweet, And we still clasp hands with the olden joy That madeour day complete. -D. M. JORDAN.

MAIDS OF HONOUR AND THEIR DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
MAIDS OF HONOU R AND THEIR DUTIES. A "Comical Circumstance" at Leicester lHouse, thln the residence of Frederick, Prince of Wales, in the year 1743, greatly tickled Horace Walpole's peculiar sense of humour. " One of the Prine's cuoachmn, who used to drive tih Maids of Honour," wriles the pinch beck philosopher to Sir Iloracu Monn, " was so sick of them that he has left his sou £300 upon condition that he never marries a Maid of IHonour." The " guid conceit " of toe Iman was truly allzillg; but we mnust not forget that history says little that is creditable of such lodlies. What (Grammont has recorded of those of hi tinme-that they disguised themselves as orango girlisand gaily sallied out at night-is but a detail, as also is the fact that Elizabeth was obliged to lock up her iMaids of Honour. Swift, too, probably only echoed eighteenth century opinion when he dubbed the contem porary ladies in question ias " silly." Maids of IIlonour were, in flue, from their institution to the beg...

Male Versus Female Brains. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 16 March 1894
Male Versus Female Brains. Leaving the physical aide, let us now com. pare the mental aslibre of the two sexes. The first argument always brought out by the medical profession is the a priori one derived from brain weight. A wuman's brain weighs less than a man's brain; therefore, it is argued, she must be inferior to him in mental power. In the first place, however, it is yet by no means certain that a large brain is superior to all smaller brains. Brain power depends,'authorities tell us, first upon quality; secondly, upon activity; thirdly, upon size. The man who possessed the heaviest brain yet weighed was an American blacksmith, who does net sceel to have been otherwise remarkable, even for the excellence of his iron work. loevent, -dmitting that if tile quality and activity be equal, a large brain is superior to a small one, it is still uncertain whether or not ousmen possess smaller brains than men in proportion to their size. When we consider how much of the brain is occu pi...
