SPORT FOR CONVICTS. | -4 ! Humanitarian motives havo led | the authorities in tho States to in stitute remarkable regulations in some of their penitentiaries. The convicts arc altowed to Bmoke,_play cards and various outdoor games, indulge in musical evenings, and en joy other privileges in order to re lieve tho tedium of their long sen tences. ) And still there is a cry for more humane treatment for prisoners, tho rosult of which has been tho . es tablishment of what is known as tho State "Honour Prison," at Great Meadow, in tho United States, a report concerning which has just been published. The prison is really a thousand acre fann, on which the men are employed, everything being done to make the prisoners contented and happy. That the authorities have been very successful in this direc tion may be gathered from tho fact, that, although no walls surround j the institution, only four men at tempted to escape last year, and so indignant were the other convicts at what they conside...

Ocean Fliers. STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914

Ocean Fliers. STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS In the "Times" Literary Supple ment is nn extremely interesting ar ticle reviewing Mr. Basil Lubbock's book on "The China Clippers." 3t is no nccidcnt; (says the writer of the review) that the ocean clipper owed its very origin to tho compe tition . for fortunes in the illicit opium trade to China, in tho thir ties and forties of last century ; a business which was nothing less than the armed and piratical smug gling of ^ noxious drug into a country whose rulers forbade, but were too weak to resist, its intro duction. Tho coolie traffic, too/ was a disreputable business. It is only when Wo come to the gold rush to 'Frisco and the clean trade of the fifties and sixties that fascination at tho brilliant qualities and achievements of tho clipper overcomes disgust at the iniquities associated with the name. Then indeed tho story becomes en thralling^ At first the Americans were supreme, their designers, Hall, Webb, nnd tlio famous Donald Mac kay...

L. S. 0. OF AVIATION. The dny when the well-to-do City man will use an ueroplano on his doily journeys between his home and his office, and £150 will purchase an efficient machine, is foreshadowed by Mr. Gustav Haxnel and Mr. Charles C. Turner in their inter esting hook, "Flying-Some Practi cal Experiences." s Even now flying is not prohibi tively expensive, apart from the original expense of £100 to £1,500 for the aeroplane itself. The cost of flying, according to the authors, is nmdo up of the "capital expen diture upon the machine, the cost or rental of a shed, repairs and renowal of parts, fuel, and tho wages of one or more mechanics. The price of a machine may be any thing from £400 to £1,500. Tak ing the engine most generally in use nt the time of writing-name ly, the Gnome-the aviator may buy u singlc-scatqr machine with a 50 horse-power motor for about £700, or a two-seater machine with an 80-horse-power motor for £1,000.

One in particular is of an old cap tain seeing the terror of the jun ior oflicer during that nervous or deal of treading the bridge for tho first time with.him.
