SIX MILES A MINUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898
SIX MILES A MINUTE. An Araerioan inventor has just succeeded in completing the model of a submarine boat, which, it is claimed, will travel under water at the rate of six miles a minute, or about 360 miles in an hour. In other words, he will be able to have an early breakfast in Ne» York.-and lunch in London. In the time it takes an Atlantic liner to make one passage he will bo able to cross and rccross sixteen times. Tho inventor, who, by-the-way, has done other thiugs of the kind before, some of which are not altogether unknown to the Russian Govern ment, has been working for months upon his latest idea. His boat is constructed on a mechanical theory, which, when made known, will astonish the whole world. It is to be kept a secret, howrver, until his patents are secured.
DRAWING THE CIDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898
DRAWING sTHE CIDER. To draw the cider wo were sent. We two on mirth aud mischief bent, She bore the candle flaring high : The old blue-figured pitcher I. What shaduws o'er the cellar wall Tossed, huge and shapeless, dim and tall : What e- rie sounds from rack lo bin, Aud casks that pent real spirits in ! The spigot turned, both heads bent low To rvatch the amber current flow, The candle-light llared strangely dim, The pilchtr must not over-b.i.i. So close, so clovi our faces drew. Our lips had touched beforo we knew ; And ere they parted -rogues disgraced, Sis quarts of cider went to waste.

WONDERFUL APPETITES. One hundred years ugo gluttons were pitted against each other in eating competition!, and the revolting speetuolo was anxiously witmssed by the respective supporters. From St. Simon's description of LouiB XlY.'s appetite, the Grand Monarquo would have made a vory creditable figure hi suy entiug contest ; and some persons can certainly cousumu (and possibly actually ? ,,;»\ rimiMu tin, amount of food which is needed by more abstemious neighbours. There is a story of a Norfolk labourer who would readily eat a couple of quartern lou ves at one sitting— when he could obtain them, which was not always possible. In the early days ot the 16th century Kent boasted a champion gormau diBer named Nicholas Wood, whose feats in tl.e eating line seemed almost incredible, in view ot our modern degenerate powers of digestion. ' A. whole sheep, and that raw,' ' thirty dozen pigeons,' ' a wholu hog and a peck of damsons,' ' 8+ rabbits,' are mentioned as forming some of bis ' sing...

'LOG-ROLLING.' The Legislative Assembly has by a majority of 36 votes, Jl . confirmed the purchase of the - tramline from Broken Hill to Tarrawingee, for the sum of £15,000.

A FATAL ESCAPE. A correspondent sends the following to a Cal cutta paper : — Just now the weather is very hot and still, and the seu is calm, so there has been a good deal of touring about the islands. When visiting the North Sentinel Island on March 30, an event, which should act as a. wur'oiug to convicts intending to escape, happened. The Elphinstone anchored off the south end of the island, where there is a break in the surf, and a good landing can be effeoted at about noon, and soon afterwards a party of men from the Suffolk Regiment landed to explore thn jungle. They were warned that the island was peopled by a tribe of Andamanese, who, though few in number, were very hostile to all comers ; but ' Tommy ' did not put himself out on account of ' they Andamauese,' aud was inclined to laugh at warnings. The remainder of the party waited till the evening to land. One of the first sights to meet the eyes of the soldiers was the corpse of a Hindoo on the edge of the water, pierced w...

The Minister some time ngo refused his request for penny po^tage within a 15-mile radius, giv ing as his reason for so doing that Gundagai P.O. did not return the necessary £2,500 per annum in reve nue.
