A GLUT OF SOVEREIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

A GLUT OF SOVEREIGNS. It is not often in modern times, that any nation has bo much gold on hand as to pro duce a glut in the market, especially among a pcoplo professedly civiliBcd. Five years ago, Mr. G. E. Parkinson (accompanied by Dr. Steadman and Mr. T. T. O. King) left Liverpool on board the Lagos, having in his charge 20,000 sovoreignB, being the payment which an English company had undertaken to make to the Republican Government of Liberia for the Bole right of exporting india rubber from that country. On the vessel's arrival off the coaat of IVtonravia, her Majcsty'B gunboat Magician was waiting to render aaBiBtunce if nocessary, in the land ing of the spocie. The monoy was conveycd in ten boxes, each containing 2,000 sovereigns, all the boxes being roped together, with buoyB at tached to them, so that in the ovent of tho boat being capsized in the heavy surf, tho whereabouts of tho packets might bo ascer tained.

PUSSY AND RAVISHING MELODY [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

PUSSY AND RAVISHING MELODY Gretry, tlio French composer, was pre sented by tho Marquis do Giiebriant with n favourite cat named Lucifer. Tho cat seemed very fond of music, and when Gretry was at the harpsichord always listened with intorest to his playing. Ho was too well bred to purr or miauw whilo it lasted. Perched on a pile of manuscript minuets and sonatas, ho looked for all the world like one of Egypt's ancient gods. Gretry occupicd in 179S a modeHt apart ment in the Hue Pas do la Mule. Here he received his intimate frionds, Philidor, the groat chess-player, Garat, tho " Incroyable," tho musician Ellevion, and Desormeaux, tho array contractor, a fast friend and favourite of tho first Napoleon. Gretry, whoso lino was comiu opora, wished to try his hand at higher work, and after finishing his well-known " Essay on Music," began a grand opera, " Anacrcon and Poly cratea." It was completed, all but tho finale, and this ho could not arrange to his satis faction. During this, his mo...

SHOWERS OF FROGS AND FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

SHOWERS OF FROGS AND FISH. Parisians have been favoured by the Tunis correspondent of the " Journal des Debata " with the news that " ail abundant shower of frogs has fallen at Bizerta after a Btorin." It ia added that tho largest were the size of a man's thumb. Unfortunately that ia all the information vouchsafed. We are left to conjccturo what the Arabs thought of tho Btrange visitation. It may be they are anticipating all sorts of mischief as a result of this manifestation of the mysterious forces of nature. FrogB have often been mentioned as falling from the clouds with rain. It is not safe, however, to rely implicitly on all tho state ments, for it is safe to assume that in most cases, if not in all, the innocent batrachians did not come down in tho ruin. In " Plot's j History of Staffordshire " it is asserted that I frogs frequently foil on Lord Ashton's bow ling-green in showors of rain, so that in that locality " frog rains " ought not to bo | thought supernatural.

DANGERS OF SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

DANGERS OF SCIENCE. In 1864 Tyndall performed the experiment of separating light from heat. In tho course of the investigations which enabled him to do this he made a most daring experiment. Knowing that a layer of iodine placed before the eye intercepted the light, he determined to place his own eye in the focus of Btrong invisible rays. He know that if in doing so tho dark rays were absorbed in a high degree by the humours of the eye, the albu men of the humours might coagulate ; and on the other hand, if tliero was no high ab sorption, the rays might strike upon the retina with a force sufficient to destroy it. When he first brought his eye, undefended, near the dark focus, the heat on the parts surrounding the pupil was too intense to be endured. He therefore made an aperture in the plate of metal, aud, plaeing his eye be hind this aperture, he gradually approached the point of convergence in the invisiblo rays. First the pupil and then the retina were placed in the focus withou...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

GENERAL NEWS. A crop of wheat uses sixty tons of water an acre a month. Sweden, France, Germany, and Fin laud have a census once in five years. The normal ear should hear a whisper at a distance of twelve feet. The German Empire registers more than a thousand marriages a day. About one-sixth of the paper output of the world is converted into books. It takes £35 a year to keep a railway carriage in working order. Some of the Russian battleships. are lined with asbestos, as a protection against fire. A tax of ten per cent, on all theatre tickets sold in France ia used to main tain the paupers of that country. Over one-third of the manufactured goods made in France are the products of female labour. In the whole of Europe there are sixteen births and twelve deaths a minute. « If London streets were pat end to end they would reach to St. Peters* berg.

CONVENIENT ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

CONVENIENT ROOM. An Irish doctor, after spending many years in Australia, and amassing a large fortune, returned to Dublin. There he hunted up an old acquaint ance, and found him living in a single room in an attic. There was a great revival between them of old memories, and many a hearty laugh they had. At length the doctor remarked, look ing round the small and ill-furnished apartment: 'I'm afraid you find it very incon venient living in a single room like this V ' Inconvanientl' exclaimed the other, cheerfully. ' Why, my dear fellow, it's the most convanient plaoe I was ever in in my life. When I want to go to my drawing-room, or my smoking-room, or my dining-room, or my bedroom, why, I have nothing to do but just sit where I am.'

GAS AS A TRACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

GAS AS A TRACTION. On the tramway between Blackpool and Lytham, which haB juat been com pleted, the motive power is gas. The Blackpool, St. Anne's; and Lytham Tramway Company is the first to adopt gas as a traction in the United Kingdom, though it has been used 011 the Contin ent. The cars will hold fifty-two passengers, and they are driven by a fifteeu-horse power gas engine oE the Otto principle. There is.nothing in the external view of the carB to give any idea of the motive power employed, and it is only by opening the doors let into the sides of the care that the motor can be found. The engine, 'which is con stantly running, even when the oar is at a standstill, is controlled by the driver from the front platform. A switch acting on the governors changes the speed from 80 to 260 revolutions per minute, and though the Board of Trade regulation restricts the Bpeed at eight miles an hour, the engine is oapable of going much faster.

SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

SOCIALISM. Circumstances are still much in the habit of altering cases. A Yorkshire Socialist, in explaining to a friend the principles of his belief made the statement, at the outset,' That all possessions should be divided equally.' ' If you had two horses,' said the friend, ' would you give me one ?' 1 Of course,1 said the Socialist. ' And if you had two cows, would you do the same ?' ' Of course I should.* ' Well, suppose now,' said his friend, slowly,'that you had two pigs; would you give me one of them ?' , Eh, lad, tha's getting too near home,' said the other, slilyv ' Tha knawa I've got two pigs.'

USE OF THE WORD "BELONG." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

USE OF THE WORD "BEIONC." Concerning the American use of the word * belong,' I observe a writer in the ' Critic ' who says that two things, no matter what, ' belong apart.' Now, observe, says Andrew Lang, these two things are not said to belong to anything else, they simply 'belong—apart.' Say the two things are scare-heads and psychical research. Here one might put it ' scare-heads and psychical research have nothing to do with each other' (though. they sound as if they had), 'have no connection with each other,' 'do not belong t<) the same field of science/ or what you please. But in America they ' belong-apart.' Belong to 'what,' in the name of Webster's Dictionary ? Manifestly ' belong' is becoming a new substantive verb. I appeal, on my knees, to the Editors of the 4 Critic, and to all the professors in America, ought' belong' to belong every where, so to speak ?

ALUMINIUM FROM AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

ALUMINIUM FROM AUSTRALIA. One of the most interesting mineral finds of recent years is that of bauxite in New South Wales. Bauxite is the mineral from which the greater part of the aluminium of commeroe is now manufactured. Previous to this dis covery th» only known deposits of commercial value were those located in Ireland, at Baux, in France, and in certain of the Southern United States, notably Georgia and Alabana. The deposits now found are of large size, and occur in several districts in New South Wales. It is probable that they will soon be utilised and that metallic aluminium will be manufactured in the State, us water power is near at hand. ThiB iB of great importance, as all of the aluminium of oommerce is now obtaiiied from bauxite by electrolytic methods, which demand some cheap and constant source of power for the development of the immense electric force required.

CANE SUGAR AS FOOD. Superior to Beet Sugar. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

CANE SUGAR AS FOOD. Superior to Beet Sugar. Cane sugar, h;i a correspondent of the 'Britiah Medical Journal,' ia un doubtedly anperior to beet sugar. The difference between them ia not • ohemi oal, bat • physiological one, a queation of taste and flavour. It ia a difference aimilar to that between wine and brandy, and faintly coloured and genuine Scotch whisky. In the West Indies the negroes get into good con dition in the crop time; not only do they sack the cane, but every labourer is allowed a certain quantity of ' liquor* or 'molasses' in addition to his pay. The little negro boys delight to gather round the hogahead of sugar on the quay and collect the mollases. Besides this, the impurities which rise to the surface when the liquor is heated, after treatment with lime, are skimmed off and given to the males and cattle ; this ' mud' contains a fair quantity of cane sugar, and it is astonishing how sleek and fat the mules beoome after feeding on it. It is the impurities of sweets...

LORD ROBERTS'S FAMOUS CHARGER. The Pretty Little "Yonolell." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902

[lord roberts's famous charger. The Pretty Little "Yonolell." Perhaps one of the moat popular horses in the world is ' Vonolell,' the pretty little Arab which was ridden by Field Marshal Lord Roberts in the famous march'from Cabul to Kandahar. The height of this little grey is four teen hands two, and although twenty three years of age is still wonderfully active and as playful as a three-year-old, for I remember (writes a contributor intimately acquainted with the horse) on one occasion, when required for his morning exercise, it took four men to catch htm while he performed all sorts of antics. Previous to his master pur chasing him from an Indian chief, the Arabs had cruelly broken his tail in two places, in order to obtain the graceful curve which is often seen in the Arab horses. If any of our readers were for tunate enough to see the equestrian statue of Lord Roberts, by Mr. Harry Bates, A.R.A., when it was temporarily erected in London, they had a good opportunity of seeing a...
