Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 18 April 1905
Mining. Mr. J. Shepherd, of Bywong ' Reefs, is still raising rich stone. I hear he is crushing about 502 a week in his small bat tery. Recently , he had the misfortune to break part of his engine, which necessitated his taking the part to Sydney 'to get it repaired. Messrs. Walker ana U;Hara, I believe, have found a new reef which looks very well. It is a great pity the mining authorities would not take more interest in the. welfare of small fields like these. For instance, if they would erect small batteries in some central place on the fields and .crush for say from^s to 10s per ton, there would be a lot- of inen making good livings on them. I myself know where there are Aree or four good reef® that would go half an ounce to the ton, butjit is out, of the :C[ues tion to think of working Jhem; under ' the exisdag ^circum stances, for ' the carting and5 enisling eats i£ ail up ; cdnse I quently the gold' stops in the groundL

[From the Daily TEI.Kr.RAi'ii.] It is from the family of ' maca roni,' or duram wheats that Mr. Farrer hopes to breed va rieties which will be suitable for the very dry zones of New Sputh Wales and probably of Australia.

ASTRONOMICAL ECCENTRICITIES. I From a popular standpoint, probably the moat memorable event relative to the light of the variable stani occurred in 1572, whan the brfllisaey of a star fa the conatellatiop of Catoiopeia -ao increaaed as to eoUpee foi^B time all Us stellar companions, surpassing Sirios, Vega, the planet Jupiter, ana equal ling Venus whan lit her bngbiest, so that it became visible wt noonday. This was the star so attentively observed for a period of seventeen months by the Danish astrono mer, Tycho Brahe ; and few events in the story of the heavens have created greater excitement than its advent- shortly after the horrors of the St. Bartholomew massacre, amid general consternation, superstitions of the populace, fear of comets ana dread of the worm, announced as imminent bv the astrologers of that time ; and, despite the oft proved gronndleaaneas of the supposition, many people regarded it as a reappearance of the famous star of Bethlehem and looked I for the second c...

Essayist. AN EXPERIMENT WITH CONVICTS. An experiment in the treatment of con victs is abont to be inaugurated in the state 1 prison of Massachusetts, at Oharlestown, I whioh may, as expected, be of much praotiosl benefit in behalf of prison reform. It ia something like a return to the system of solitary confinement, although in this case the prisoner will be allowed to decide for him - self if he desires that mode of li*e during the period of his incarceration. A convict aoiofr i thft will see no one but his keeper, but will be given plenty of exeroisc and go^dj whole some food, provided with Work and be kept in a oomiortable ceu. xne evu atter euects 01 the present gmgarious method of keeping convicts will, It is believed, be prevented by the new system.
