TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AT DEER PARK. ? A terrible explosion occurred on 4th April at the works of tho Australian Explosives and Chemical Company, at Deer Park, about 3 miles beyond the village of Braybrook. Two men were killed in a- horrible manner, and others sustained such serious injuries that in two' cases it was necessary ' to remove the sutforers to the Melbourne Hospital, whero one has since died, and the other lies in a precarious condition. ' It appears that just as tho operatives were ceasing work, at about 5 o'clock, four moii were oooupied in a shed set apart for' the purposes of cartridge making, in' ' using up the last ' mixing ' of the day in the preparation of 2-ounco powder cases for use in blasting operations. In tho' manufacture of these cart ridges a filling machine is employed, and three of the operatives alluded to were attending to the machine, whilst the fourth was seated ac a table some, little distance away parcelling up the cartridges as they were, handed to h...

THE LAST HAUNTS OF THE MOA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

THIS LAST HAUNTS OF THE MOA. [uv s. e.' buookks.] It has been with a feeling of pleasure that J have perused Sir George Grey's work, Poly nesian Mytholoyy, also Colenso's contributions to the Transactions of the Aeiv Zealand In stitute, with the many other, contributions to these volumes relative to. the Maori race, and the debates that have followed, adding a zest to the suine. The colony may well be proud of having two such scholars in the early. days. These — 1 tuko it — hold opposite views regarding the moa, the former that the extinction of this bird is comparatively of recent date ; and the latter that it was extinct before the arrival of the Maories of New Zealand. Amongst the later contributors upon this sub ject is Colonel M'Dounell relative to a native named Wuirouui Paipai, who assisted in hunt-, ing the 'Moa' in his youcn on the Waimate l'iains, Taranaki. This the native related when Sir George Grey was intent on searching thu ancient pah of liaugatapu, at the mouth of t...

THE DISCOVERIES AT THE CHATHAM ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

THE DISCOVERIES AT THE CHATHAM ISLANDS. Many important discoveries have-been made by scientific men in New Zealand and its outly ing' islands, but none more important than that recounted by Mr. H. O. Forbes,- tho director of tho Canterbury Museum. Tho rail, several of \vlio.-o bones Mr. Forbes has found in the Chat ham Islands, is identical with a bird hitherto found only in the Mauritius, and extinct even there, having disappeared within the last 200 years. It is possible that the two are not 'of exactly the samespecies. Ontnatpoint Mr. Forbes suspends judgment. But they are undoubtedly iden tioal in genus. The proved existence of these birds, observes the Canterbury Weekly JPrcss, in . two such far distant and isolated islands as those of Mauritius and Chatham is in itself most interesting, and still more so in that which' it tells us concerning the history of this part of the world's surface. For Mr. Forbes's disoovery is a fact that bears closely on the question of tho probabie ...

In this variable weather, which has lately rendered it a difficult matter to know how to dress, hoavy fait hats and fur adorned headgear often seem quite out of place. Our accom panying models show stylos which are very suitable for bright days at this time of the year. The first model is of a black satin hat, the roso pink bows on which are covered with black lace; the hat is finished with black tips at the back. It mi^ht also be carriod out in fine black straw, the bows of some of tho wide fanoy ribbons so much in vogue just now, piimrosos brocaded on an olivo satin gro'ind being a very pretty design, heliotrope and olivo green form ing another attractive combination. Tho shape of the hat will probably be one of the moBt favored of tin; many variations of tho plateau in the coming season. Our second illustration is of a vioux rose chip hat, ornamented with twists of black velvet, black quills and a jewelled buckle in tho front. It would also loo...
