FIVE HUNDRED SHELLS TO KILL ONE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
FIVE HUNDRED SHELLS TO KILL ONE MAN. A shell thrown from a 24-ton quiok-firing gun rushes through the ' air at the velocity of 4,900ft per second, striking its object with a foroe equal to that of 11,230 tons falling one foot. And yet, comparatively «peaking, they are very harmlos«. Thus, during th« one-day bombardment of Alexandria by the British fleet of twelve ships, lasting from 7 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., no less than 3,165 shells were thrown into the town, and yet not more than 800 Egyptians weze killed-that is, it took, roughly speak- ing, six shells to kill one man. ; Again, during the Franco«German War, the Germans threw 300,000 shells into Bel fort, only killing sixty Frenohmen, or 500 shells to kill one man. At Strasburg, in the same war, it took eighteen shells to kill every man. And at the Siege of Paris 110,000 shells only killed 107 and wounded 209.

-? The Queen has outlived all the sovereigns reigning in the countries of Europe at the date of her aoeession, and in several of these countries the sceptre has changed hands--' thrice during her reign. The following is the latest story about President Kruger. When some of his young relatives applied to him for office he con- sidered a little while and then replied : 'I. oan do nothing. The truth is that the high, offices of the State are in firm hands, and : for little clerkships you aro too stupid.' Dr. H. S. Purdon thinks that the skin. disease known as urticaria (nettle rash) is prevalent among infants beoause their bottle . milk is sweetened with cane sugar. He suggests, as the result of praotice, sub- stituting sugar of milk. Why not do so, wo ask, in all cases where children are don cerned? . Beethoven had booome so deaf when his * ' Ohoral' symphony was produced, that his . friends had to turn him round so that he > might appreciate the strength of the applause the Bound ...
180 THOUGHTS A MINUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
180 THOUGHTS A MINUTE. It is computed by leading physiologists, that, sino9 one-third of a second, suffices to produce an im pression on the brain, a man who bas lived to be 100 years old mußt have collected upon the folds of his brain-matter at least 9,467,280,000 impressions. Or, again, take off one* third for sleep, and we still find not lesa than 6,311,520,000 in- dentations-memory's finger-marks-on and in the brain. This would give 3,155,760,000 separate waking impressions to the man who lives to be but fifty years old. Allowing an average weight of four pounds to the brain, deduct one-fourth for blood and other vessels and attachments, and an- other fourth for external integument and we still find that each separate grain of brain matter contains 205,542 traces or impressions of ideas.
READY MADE MEDICINES YOU KNOW NOTHING OF. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
KEA.DY MADE MEDIOINES YOU KNOW NOTHING OF. Thejmoney a man-especially a family man -spends on bottles of nasty medioines in a lifetime would take him on a »holiday trip once or twico round the world, or start one of his children in life. And all" 'the time be has Nature's own simple remedies, better than any ohemist's concoctions outside his door. * In the lily-of-the-valley, for inatenoe, he has one of the best cures known for dropsy. Most often dropsy results from a weak heart, and the medicinal properties of lily-of-the valley brace up this organ to a pitoh of the highest efficiency. In the odorous coltzfot we have another splendid remedy. Nothing oan beat hr in oaring a oough, and even oonsumpcion sometimes yields to it. The Germana-who know more of medicine than any other people on earth-say that a pipeful of ooltsfoot smoked occasionally will inevitably kill the consumption bacillus.

QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
QUESTIONS. Why is wine usually stooked in bottles of opaque or tinted glass ?' Without imputing the vioe of wine-bibbing to any one of your readers, I may faWy as- sume that all of them have been impressed many times with the universality (as it would soeui) of the practice of using non-trans- parent bottles for the preservation of those delicately aromatic beverages, the ripened produots of the grape. And this popular onstom of bottling wine in opaque vessels, based as it may seem on unreasoning oustom, is yet, like many others of our traditional usages, founded upon tho diotates of aotual experience-now lose to mind. Stimulated with the thought thal, although no wine merchant could enlighten me upon the point, there must be such a reason for the prooedure that your querist oities, I mado, myself, oruoial experiments and found the explana- tion of the matter to be this : Wine is, in its essence, a living complex of vegetable organisms-obsoure yeasts.

SCIENCE. TURNING BIG LINERS INTO MEN-OF-WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
TURNING BIG LINERS INTO MEN OF-WAR. J To tarn suoh véasela as the ' Teutonic ' and ' Majestic,' tonnage 9,984, into naval emilers costs £30,000 ; to build them £200,000. The British Admiralty has some thirty of the subsidised liners at its disposal, and the necessary fittings required for the change are stored at every naval dockyard and coaling Btation. It would take about a week to get them into fighting trim. They have some advantages over the .proper' naval cruisers. They have more storage room for arms, and oan earry enough coal to steam 3,000 miles at nineteen knots an hour. They oarry two nine-inch 22-ton gun« as how and stern ohasers, with a number of quick-firing guns and six torpedo-tubes.

I saw Mrs Poacook looking at them-and no wondor. He really does neglect them shamefully.' Mrs James Forsyth made this complaint to her lord as they eat together by their sitting-room fire one evening.

A SINCERE TRIBUTE. ItEV. W. H. II. AVERY, D.D., MAKES A PUBLIC STATEMENT. There aro few of our readers who will not fully appreciate the statement; made here by the Rev. W. H. H. Avery, p¿istsr of the First Baptist Church, of St. Albans, Vt. Mr. Avery has received a great benefit and does not hesitate to make it public. Such endorsement stamps the article with merit and places it beyond the dispute of the most sceptical doubter. We use Mr. Avery's own words. He says, "It gives me much pleas- ure to testify to the efficacy of Doan's Oint- ment in the case, of itching piles. I had suffered from that trouble for some ten years. In vain had I tried doctors' prescriptions, several advertised remedies, and used differ- ent washes, etc., but I got no relief until using your Dean's Ointment. One day when in the drug store I met your representative, who supplied me with a box, with expressions of confidence that it would give me entire relief.

? HARD WORK AND EASY WOKK. Thebb was a time very lately when Mr. Donato Arnoldi found it laird t.» keep u¡3 with íiis wojK. Not that there was more to be done than usual, but he didn't feel like woiking at all. Ile was dull. He had no edge. If he could have afforded it he' would have knocked off altogether. But there's where it is. Those of us who must work when we aro sharp, must keep on working when we ure,dull. Necessity obliges. ¿Expenses keep on, and so we must keep on. Dear, dear, what a thing it would be if wo were always right up to the mark-eating, sleeping, and working with a relish. We might not have money to burn even then,' but wo should have some to save. Well, let's hear Mr. Arnoldi. ' " At Easter, I8Ü3," he says, " I began to feel as if a cloud had come over me. I was weak, low and tired.

T. R. BAVIN; B.A., L.L.B., National Federal Candidate for CantURDU«y. "Youth íh no crime" exclaimed the great Pitt on an historic occasion in the British llonseof Com- mons. And when youth is found allied with high integrity, anrl distinguished ability, and paUiotic sentiment instead of being a subject for. complaint or depreciation, it is one of which its possessor .may well rejoice. The subject .of our sketch is probably one of the youngest candidates for Parliamentary honors selected by the New South Wales Federal Association to champion the cause of Föderation in the present contest. But those who thus, selected Mr. Bavin know their mun and what they were about, anil with the hearty co-operation of the Federalists of Canter- bury 'we predict for him the place of honor at the poll*. Mr. T. IÎ. Bavin, B.A., L.L.B., is a son of the distinguished Wesloyun Methodist minister, the Uev. B. Bavin, and," having been horn in New Zealand in 1874, is now twenty-four years old.
