ARABS AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 30 November 1901
ARABS AND ELECTRICITY. — 0 — During the time he was engaged in laying the Red Sea cable to India, Professor Siemens made an ascent of the Great Pyramid, when ho startled the Arabs of the parly by some electrical experiments. This caused a general stampede which Siemens thu3 describes : — 1 At a signal every one of my com panions was laid hold of, to be forcibly transported down again, by the three men who had brought him there. I was standing just on the highest point of the pyramid, a large stone cube in the centre of the flattened summit, when the sheik of the tribe appioached and communi cated to me through our interpreter that the tribe hud resolved we should immediately leave the pyramid. On being asked ihe reason why, he re plied that we manifestly practised magic, and that might injure the source of their livelihood, the pyra* mid. When I refused to comply with his request, he made a dash at my left hand, whilst I held the right with the well-coated bottle — in a manifestly c...
HOW TIN FISH CAME. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 30 November 1901
HOW TIN FISH CAME. The evolution of certain types of toys is very interesting. Everyone must at some time or other have possessed a box of tin aquatic animals with bits, of steel in their noses, that can be drawn round and round a basin of water with a' magnet. The original of these were made of wood without any magnet appliance, very crudely fashioned, and rarely swam the right way up. A German toy maker studied the question, and solved it by bringing out the floating animals as we know them of tin, and coated with a special enamel that contact with the. water only made more bright. Needless to say, the enterprising toy-maker made his fortune by a little attention to what is, after all, only a comparatively small detail— tho substitution of tin for wood, and the magnetic pro perties. Teacher : ' Now, Tommie, look at this ; is that the way to spell window — w — i — d — 0 — w ?' ? . . Tommie : ' No, sir.' Teacher: 'What is the difference between window and widow ?' Tommie : ' You can...
GERMAN ARMY REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 30 November 1901
GERMAN ARMY REGULATIONS. It may not be generally known that it is considered a serious offence for a German soldier, no matter what may be his rank, to appear in public ex cept in uniform, even though he be on furlough. The arniy'''fegulations strictly enjoin that he must always wear his uniform. A certain Lieutenant Schmidt, who was engaged in some lively adventure or other, dressed up as a civilian, and was having altogether an enjoyable time until, on turning a corner, he unexpectedly met his colonel. The lieutenant did not, however, lose his presence of mind. He pre tended that he had never seen his colonel before, and, in a changed voice, asked : ' Can you tell me, sir, where Lieutenant Schmidt lives ? I am his brother from the country, and am pay ing him a. little visit, but I happen iust now to have lost mv wav.F The colonel quietly gave the desired information, und Lieutenant Schmidt, congratulating himself on his lucky escape, hurried home, and put on his uniform with all p...
WORDS COINED FROM PROPER NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 30 November 1901
WORDS COINED FROM PROPER NAMES. The following are a few of the words, now generally accepted as part and parcel of the English language, which have been derived from proper names. ' To bant ' has for its origin the method advocated by William Banting, a London undertaker, to prevent obesity j ' to bowdlerise ' — that is, to expurgate anything^ con sidered offensive or indelicate — owes its existence to Dr. Thomas Bowdler, who published an edition of Shakes peare in which certain words and passages were omitted ; ' to boycott,1 as most people know, is derived from the fact that Captain Boycott, an un popular Irish landlord, was, to use an older phrase having a similar mean ing, ' sent to Coventry ;' ' to burke ' (i.e., to strangle or get rid of a ques tion by unfair means) comes from Burke, the notorious murderer by suffocation ; ' to daguerretype,1 from Louis James Mande Daguerre, who invented a process of photography ; ' to diddle,' from Jeremy Diddler the protagonist in a once fav...

THE CHARMS OF WINE [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 30 November 1901
THE CHARMS. OE. HUE . A worthy professor was invited to dine at the house of a lady of high rank. The d- ; was hot, tho wine cool, the professors thirst great, and the fair neighbour, with whom the professor was engaged in a lively conversation, filled his glass as often as it was emptied. When the company rose from the table, the professor noticed, to his great consternation, that he was un steady on his feet. In his anxiety to save appearances, he repaired to the drawing-room, where the lady of the house yielded to the wishes ol her friends, and ordered the nurse to bring in the baby twins. The pair were lying together on a pillow, and the nurse presented them for inspection to the person nearest the door, who happened to be the professor. The latter gazed intently at them for awhile, as if deciding whether or not there were two or one, and then said, somewhat huskily : 1 Really, what a bonny little child it is !' All present burst out in a merry peal of laughter, but the professo...

11 Bobs' as a Horseman. Lord Roberts has had few equals in the handling of sword and lance, snys a writer in the ' New Penny Magnzina1 for May. He was always especially fond of tent-pepging, and -o excelled in ths difflouU dlvanioa that ho wwi nil' thu lirst prize, at tho Indian tourna ment from the whole Indian army when he was already past hits sixtieth year. The love of free, rapid move rucnt soon made him an accomplished cyclist, and he did much of his work in Ireland, especially at manoeuvres, ' on the wheel.' He so buliuvod in his bicycle thut he induced his staff to follow his example, although all were not equally well equipped for riding it, Ihere wero many occasions ? at the Currogh when Lord Roberts led them a fine dance, and distanced ovorybody. He has preserved to advanced age the small, spare, wiry figure which has made him almost impervious to fatigue. In youth no doubt he was of delicate constitution, and the tradition survives that when at school ho was liable to he...
