"Bearing" the Market [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

." Bearing " the Market IT is becoming clear, says the " Farm and Home," that the " bears " are at work in their endeavors to control butter values, both here and in London. Who the " bears " are it is dillicult to hazard an opinion, but withal their tracks are plainly visible. Regarding the appoint ing ot that committee in London to weekly fix the value of Australian butter, does it not seem strange that those muost interested-viz: the Australian pro ducers-lave haid no voice in the election of that committee? The committee that fixes the weekly value of Danish butter represents the producing interest ex clusively, while in our case the London butter Itrerchants form themselves into a committee, apparently for the purpose of fixing the values at a price that will leave a'grood martin of profit for 'themselves. A commnittee of agents would'b -far lir,. ferable to a committee of merchants. It is to the interest of firms acting only as agents to obtain the highest possible price; but ...

Origin of Shot Towers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

Origin of Shot Towers. Before Watts, the discoverer of the present mode of making shot ha$d-is notable dream, induced by over indulg ' din stimulants, the manufacture in question was a slow, labori ons and, consequently, costly process. Great bare of lead had to be pounded into sheets of a thickness nearly equal to the diameter of the shots desired. These sheets had then to be out into little cubes, placed in a revolving barrel and there rolled round until, by the constant friction, the edges wore off from the little cubes and they became spheroids. Watts had often racked his brain trying to discover some better and less costly scheme, but in vain. Finally, after spending an evening with some boon companions at the ale-house, he went to bed and soon fell asleep. His slumbers, how ever, were disturbed by unwel come dreams, in one of which he was again out with "the boys" and as they were stumbling home it began to rain shot-beau tiful globules of polished, shining lead-in such number...

Women Cyclists. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 12 January 1894

Women Cyclists. Opinions are still divided among feminine cyclists as to whether they should follow the example set by their French sisters, and adopt what is called rational costume, that is to say, a knickerbocker suit of clothing that only differs from that of the men inasmuch as the tunic is made a few inches longer. At Ditton, a great resort of cyclists on the road to Ripley, no fewer than six ladies in the new costume were seen by a writer in "Bicycling News"on a recent occasion. One of these ladies on being asked whether her zeal for innovation led to her being annoyed in any way in the streets, said that many more remarks were made to her when she first took to a bicycle than she had encountered on the first occasion when she donned the rational drews. Another lady declared that in riding against the wind she was able to go two miles an hour faster in rational dress than she could in a skirt, and then, as she added, the new style is safer. Miss Reynolds, who recently accompl...

Education of British Officers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894

SEducation of British Officers. The report of the Board of Visitore on the IRoyal Military College, Sandhurst, which was issued as a Parliamentary paper, con lained some chrious information with regard to what is called the education of British officers of the Line. While others are £xing their minds on an eight hours' day as on somoe"golden vision," the Sandhurst boys already enjoy a four hours' r.ay! "At present the cadets study for only four hours and 00 minutes daily in summer, and ". hours i minutes in winter, of which a very large proportion is in the open air, requiring little mental effort. As a con. seoouence, there is a very large amount of time at their disposal, for which they must find occupation in some way or another, and hence the provision for entertainments, which otherwise would not be required." These "entertainments" appear to be nnmerous and diversified, as, in addition to facilities afforded for cricket, football, lawn tennis, rackets, golf and rowing, polo is...

A GIGANTIC UNDERTAKING. o--- The cables have announced the arrival at Manchester of the first cargo steamer taken through the newly com pleted ship canal. In view of that fact the following particulars of the great work, culled from the" Daily News," will be read with interest: The Manchester Ship Canal is intended to bringthelarger shipe of commerce to the city of Manchester : and although the Irwel and the :Mersey will be absorbed at the upper end, this great work cannot like the Clyde, be exactly called the canalisation of these rivers, because the excavation does not keep to the line of their beds, but is a distinct work all the way from the docks at Manchester to the exit into the estuary of the Mersey at East ham. Some details of other great canals may be here stated for the purpose of comparison. The North Sea Canal atAmsterdam is about 14 miles in length, with a depth of "23 feet, and 88 feet wide at the bottom. The St. I'etersburg and Cronstadt Canal is about IS miles long,...

Labouchere on the Naval Question [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894

Labouchere on the Naval Question I have never been an opponent of a strong navy, although I have questionedthe wisdom of Lord George Hamilton's dictum that our navy mustbe as strong as thatof any other two naval powers, for this seemed an invitation to these Powers to en gage in a beggar-myenea game of building sips. But this I should like to know: If we were engaged in war withsome geat Power-say with France should we seek to remain masters in the Mediterranean! On a straight strategical questeon like this, the fullest consideration prowould be needed. Without neuncing one way or the other, I cannot help seeing that, were we at war with some strong IMediterranean Power, the difference of the inesranoe between British and neutral bottoms would transfer to neutrals all the carrying trade now under the British flag in the Mediterranean, for under snuh a mare olausum the risk of isolated steamers cap turing our ships would remain, even if we were to vanquish the enemy's ships of war in...
