As to nmanIulring the weapons, lie says that a 110-ton gun can be fired nearly as q(mekly as a 35-ton gun. lie makes. no refereference to the comparative durability of the guns, because, probaliy,' that is ass point which has yet to be determined, and as reliable Ilata are. not .obtainable it may.be, as well to assume that the guns are oil an eqiiality.'"It is salid that the lifei of large weallois is short, and it is comnionly. believed that a 110-ton gun...

FOOTBALL. Hastings v. Marlybone. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 31 May 1890
FOOTBALL. Hastings v. 31arlyhone. The above teams met for the first time this year on the Hastings ground. It will he remembered that this teaun who hail from South Melbourne were defeated, by the Hastings team at the tail end of -last season,-and being a holiday on' Saturday they again visited the scene of their former defeat with a much stronger team than before, lint they had again to lower their colors, as the local boys totted tip,' : goals :3 behinds to 2 goals (i iehinds. The visitors had hard luck in hitting the post three times. Both teams played short of the 20 and it was not much to the creditof some of the Hastings boys, to watch the game instead of lending a helping hanud. The success of the team is ina measure due to the rattling play of Green, Ham and Oakley, who undouhtedly played the best game on the field. The next match IHast ings have is with Frankstou at Hastings on the 7th, next Saturday.

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE FRANKSTON FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 31 May 1890
ORIG1N~lL PO.ETRY. TIHE FRANKSTON FIRE BRIGADE. A meeting was held in the hall tihe other night, And the crowd some of whom had a traule, Discussed the advisableness (yes that's the word,) Of forming a smart fire brigade. The first of the crowd to expound his ideas Was a man tall and well made, And who sometimes is jolly but never theless, Said he'd vote for a si!tart tire brigade. He reviewed at great length our leading town incts, Which only for those towns are made, And was sure that our Government aid we shall ask, To provide for a snmrt fire brigade. Ventilating his views in a Iroad sort of way He considered that men shouhi be paid, Who hut an hours rest in a twelve month or so, For the fame of the smart fire brigade. The next of the crowd who then up did rise, Of the thing knew not much I'm afraid, Declared only one thing was good for this town - And that was a smart fire brigade. The third of the crowd on the subject then spoke, Who'd experience, although not. in Frankston, G...
A STRANGE PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 31 May 1890
La Nfature is resnonsiblc for the following :--"Theire has been dis covered in the forests of .India a, strange plant, which possesses to a high degree astonishing magnetic power. The hand which breaks a leaf front it receives immediately a shock equal-to that which is produced by the conductor of an induction coil. At a distance of (; metres (6(P yards) a magnetic needle is affected sby it, and it will be quite deranged if brought near. The elier'y of t6iii- singular influence varies with the hour of the day. All powerful about 2 o'clock in" the afternoon, it is absolutely annulled during the night. At the times of storm its intensity ugments to striking proportions. During tile rain the plant seems to succumb and bends its heald during a thunder shower; it remauins there without force or virtue, even if one should shelter it with an umbrella. No shock is felt all that time in breaking the leaves, and the needle is unaffected beside it. One never by chance secs a bird or an inscct ...
