DARNUM. A most enjoyable progressive euchre party and dance was held at the Mechanics' Institute on Monday evening. The hall was tastefully dec orated. and furnished for the occasion and no pains were spared to make the entertainment a success. Miss Knott won the lady's prize, and Mr H. Elliot the gentleman's prize. The booby prizes were awarded to Miss G. Keeble and Mir Goller respectively amidst much merriment. The thanks of the committee of the insti tute are certainly due to Mr J. Streit berg for so enjoyable and successful an entertainment.

SHIP AFIRE IN MID OCEAN. SUPERB COURAGE SHOWN. HEROES AND HEROINES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
SHIP AilRE IN MID OCEAN. SUPERB COURAGE SHOWN. IIEROES AND IHEROINES. The following gives some details of a mid-ocean catastrophe:- . The American wooden steamship Del aware, 1279 tons net, of Philadelphia, belonging to Messrs W. P. Clyde and Co. was recently destroyed by fire when off the port. As soon as the outbreak was discovered, and it was seen to be impossible to subdue it, Captain Ingram formed the sailors in a double line, and passed the women and children to the boats, each being given a blanket on entering the boats. Captai.n Ingram stood at the bhed of the line and threatened to shoot 1he first person who started a panic. As a result of his coolness and the discip line he maintained, all the passengers were safely l:lnced in the o:ats, anld after this duty had been performed, Captain Inglramn :mud the crew took to the ship's rafts. Many of the passelli gers were only in their night clothes, so quickly were they hurried front their nalin:s to ihe deck. The lire started ab...
A MARVELLOUS GUN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
A MARVELLOUS GUN. A Tyneside engineer, 2Mr James Judge, managing partner of the WValker En gineering and Galvanising Company, says the "Engineer and Iron Trades Ad vertiser," has patented a gun which he believes, when perfected, will discharge the enormous number of 30,000 bullets per minute. The gun discharges its mis siles by centrifugal force, being, in fact, a wonderful development of the ancient sling. Mr Judge has a disc working within a case at 15,000 revolutions per minute, a speed which has already been obtained In practice. From the circumference of. thie disc project two hands. The bullets are poured into the case from a hopper, and as they fall are caught by the hands. which, in coming round, rain them out in a continuous stream through an orifice. They are guided into a sieve, which may be elevated or depressed and sighted like the muzzle of a rifle. A great velocity may be obtained by the use of hand-power, but the inven tor's idea is to use his guns upon an ar mored m...
NATIVE WEAPONS FROM THE PHILIPPINES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
NATIVE WEAPONS FROiM THE PHILIPPINES. National interest just now is largely centred in the Philippines. In the Unit versity of Pennsylvania are- curios which are closely allied with the ear lier periods of the islands. They con sist of a number of specimens of pri mitive weapons, and are the only ex amples of the kind in the country. The collection, meagre as it is, has already attracted considerable attention, and the many visitors attest to the deep in terest the people feel in all that pertains to the new territory. The curios are five in number, and were obtained at the Rastrow (rag fair) at Madrid, and deposited in the Univer sity Museum. From the saw of the swordfish single and two-edged swords were construct ed. In the case of the former the teeth were carefullysharpened on one side,and the larger end cut down for a handle. It presents a formidable appearing impl- ment of carnage. With the other the two-edged sides were preserved. In the hands of a muscular native these crude...
WAR MORTALITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
WAR MORTfALITYL The conditions of warfare differ so greatly that no exact inferelnce can ne cessarily be drawn from past statistics as to the mortality likely to prevail in any particular campaign (says tle "Daily News"). The climate of the sphere of operations; the period, of the year over which the campaign extends; the composition, equipment and resour ces of the forces engaged on either side; the available organis?ation for the medi cal treatment of the sick and wounded; the nature of the operations, whether military, naval, or both, and the tactics pursued by the commanding officers, are but a few of the elements which must vary in every case, and which must serl ously affect the general result. The whole science of war has, moreover, been so completely revolutionised in recent years that the mortality from battle which will he experienced in the war in which Spain and America are engaged may be widely different from that of any war the statistics of which are available to us, ...
ROTHSCHILD AND VICTORIAN BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
ROTHSCHILD AND VICTORIAN BIRDS. It may be of interest to naturalists to know the fauna of our country is still attracting strong attention in Europe. The hon. Walter Rothschild has this week instructed Mr Robert Hlall, an ac tive member of the Field Naturalists' Club, to consign to him a large series of oceanic birds for his museum in London. These will help to complete the known life histories of an order of birds that has had the special attention of the di rector of Rothschild's mus~euih (Mr Ernst Harbert) for many years. This museum is worked on a grand system, partly by means of collectors with a special knowledge in all parts of the world. and the Avi fauna of many coun tt'es thousands of miles away is repre sented at a higher stage of perfection than in the countries themselves. 'Isn't it strange? Minnie just des pises aIr Wilkins, while her mother thinks he is the greatest person in the world." "'That's easily accounted for. The first time he met them together he took them f...
BICYCLING AND OVER-EXERTION [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
BICYCLING AND CVER-EXERTION Several well known cyclists have lately, it is said. been rejected as unfit for military service by reason of hyper trophy and other diseases of. the heart. MIedical men will be rather surprised that the numbers are so small. There must be few of us who have not seen the ill-effects of over-exertion on a bicycle. The comnonest is palpitation. and temnporary dilation; but even this is sometimes very difficult to cure. In a; case which occurredl recently a lady; ordered for a fortnight's change of air after influenza, chose to spend it in bicycling about lifty miles a day. As a; result, she has had, ever since that time -now nine months ago-a pulse which; on the least exertion rises to 120, though; she has not ridden again. That tem porary dilatation occurs is enough to show the great strain put upon the heart, and it is an added danger that the sense of fatigue in the limbs Is so slight. The rider is thus robbed of the warning which he is accustomed to at ...
