CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. Hugh left Dover ou his yacht, the Christabel, upon the evening of a glorious day of Juno; he was off Lis bon three days afterwards, and Mat Michel was trying to tell him that this was the finest harbor in the world with the exception of a dozen or moro upon the coast of Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious days. : Though he knew as well as any man what failure would mean to Hugh Don- 1 aid, he would never let the word pass his lips. Always cheerful, with a jest j at every turn, lie became a veritable terror to the Archdeacon, who, de spite the call of Devonshire and arch diaconal functions, insisted upon ac-1 companying his "poor young friend," ! and of doing ample justice to the ef forts of the Christabel's masterly cook. George Hedges was not a pessi mist in practice, though in precept lie frequently touched lightly upon the nether regions. "A man who flung roses into hell," as Mat said" with the breezy candor...

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal I ley, who worked up to the end of his I long life, tils works were many, but the most notable was his''great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid head pestilence and war," and, iii'leed, they were commonly sTuiposed to presage a terrible war, at leJst. One of them appeared in the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but this did not affect the comet, which re appearerd seventy-fiv > years later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles V., Emperor of Ger many aiid King of Spain, to resign both crowns^ But it came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, and Evelyn accused it of "wo...

UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. - . A marine engineer tells of an un pleasant piece of work he <5nce had to do during the trial trip of a magnlfl cent'boat that a large firm of contrac tors had turned out for one of the big ocean-going steamship companies. The engines were to run at so many knots an hour, and the big steamer left her moorings and put out to sea for her trial cruise that was to de cide whether she would be accepted by the steamship company. He writes:—After we had been out to sea but a little time, the chief engin eer discovered that one of the piston rods had a slight defect in it—a tiling not infrequent in a large mass of ma chinery—and that in passing to and fro the unwonted friction caused by this defect would in the course of a very little time make the piston and all around It red hot. The conse quence of this would 'be very serious, and would mean a breakdown in the machinery. To allow it to occur would be madness; to stop me machinery to remedy the de...

BORUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

BORUNG. (From Our Own Correspondent) The annual meeting of the Borung Football Club was held on Saturday evening and was very well attended. In review ing the previous season, the retiring president, Mr Jas Latta, congratulated last year's players on the excellent showing they made despite serious _ losses through accidents and sickness. He deplored the fact, however, that there had existed a certain amount of laxity amongst the officials of the association, as, on the only occasion that the field umpire had reported a man, the association had failed to investi gate the complaint. This was utterly ignoring the umpire, and certainly was not conductive to the suppression of rough play for which umpires were frequently blamed. Tne secretary, Mr H. Wills, read a balance sheet show ing a credit of £1 13s. It was resolved to re-form the club and the following officers were elec ted:—President, Mr J. Latta: vice-presidents, Messre W. Perry man, Thos. Smith and W. Geary ; secretary and trea...

PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. One of the greatest prejudices with which electric lightiug has lind to contend Is the assertion that.it is In jurious to the eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of :the tungsten lamp areMiarmful. The mere sound of the word "ultra-violet" ,seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to some people, who, perhaps, conjure up visions of mysterious mal ,adies analogous to those which at tacked the early experimenters with ithe X-rays. All tiiis alarm is, fortun-, ately, unfounded, for the , emission of ^ultra-violet rays by some of the latest types of metal filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a Bource of illumination. The pow erful new* lamps, however, can be in jurious to the eyesight, in tlio same .way as any other illuminant, by caus ing strain owing to glare. More than ever nowadays the science and art of illumination require to be carefully observed. In the days of' the candle and the early gas burners the s...
