Felling Trees by Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

Foiling Tews by Electricity. The London Times says : Hitherto mach ines for felling trees have been driven by steam power, but this is sometimes, incon venient, especially in thick woods, aud elect ric power has recently been adopteil in the (ialician forests. Usually in such machines the trunk is sawed, but in this it is drilled. When t'.ie wood is of a soft nature the drill has a sweeping motion, and cuts into the trunk by means of cutting edges on its sides, The drill is actuated by an electric motor mounted on a carriage, which is brought up close to the. tree and shackled to it. The motor is capable of turning round its vertical axis, and the drill is geared to it in such a manner that it can turn through an arc or a. circle ami make a sweepingcut into the trunk. The first cut made, the drill is advanced a few inches and another section of the wood re moved in the same way until the trunk is half severed. It is then stumped to keep the cut from closing, and the operation contin...

Public School Board [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

Public School Board The Miuistcr for Public Instcuction has inquired into the question of the functions and duties of Pub lic School Boards, and has come to the conclusion that the complaint which has beeu made, that the boards have not sufficient scope aud authority under provisions and regulations of the existing Act is not ho serious as to militate to any great extent against the boards reiuleriue active assistance to the de partment. Sonic of the hoards take umbrage at thuir recommendations not being carried out until they have been reported upon by the officers of the department ; but Mr. Carrutliui-s states that this arises from the fact that most of their recommenda tions involved the expenditure of money, aud the Act gives the boards no power to deal with such matters, their functions being chiefly confined to exercising supervision over the conduct of schools in order to secure the hest results from the teaching staff aud to attend to any matters affecting the health mid co...

The Famine in china. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

Tlic famine in Cliiuu. The North China Daily A'eicx says :— 'We have received f 10111 ;i correspondent at JJewcinvang a letter, which is too long to be printed at present in its entirety, giving an account of what he has seen himself in the course of .1 relief expedition with one of the missionaries who are devotiug tlienioelf to this arduous task, in 11 climate where the thermometer stands constantly below zero. The details are almost, too shocking to print. We read of families, their clothing and furni ture sold or burnt for fuel, living on a broth made of chopped willow trees, or the husks of millet. Many families have not even this, and lire patiently starving to death. The writer tells of one family of six — and this is only mie of hundreds of ca.ses — living in a dugout hole Hush with the ground, about as large as a good-sizel dog-kennel, 'eating .stewed willow leaves, and .seeming to enjoy them :' here the remark was made that now the New Year would come for them; meaning, I ...

Accident on the Bay Road. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

Accident ou the Buy Roud. Whilst Messrs. J. T. Murphy aud Thomas Mooney were travelling the Bay Road cu route to Nowra (the former driving his four-in-hand team) by some reason or other not yet satisfactorily ex nloineil the trap overturned, the occupants and luggage being thrown about- in the gi'eaiest con fusion. At the exact moment in which the acci deut occurred (says the Moki-va Times) au itiner ant photographer appears on the spot, and in stantaiieouslv secures a realistic represent ion of the scene. Fate, as if in anticipation of the photo gruplicr's prescuce aud design, quietly places Mr. Murphy's head comfortably ou a portmanteau, whilst his serene and placid face betokens not the slightest apprehension as to his perilous position. Mr. Mooney's attitude is most ludicrous, he ap pearing with one leg in mid-air, aud it speaks well for the rapid strides in the photographer's art when an operator in a moment of time could re produce the perilous position. Even the clever little...

I Russian Exiles and their Letters. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

Itussian Exiles and their Letters. One feature of administrative exile life, which exiisperates and embitters the politi cals almost as much as surveillance, is the supervision of their correspondence. An ex ile whose correspondence is ' under control' cannot send a letter to bis wife without pre viously submitting it to the ispraviuk for supervision and approval. The ispravnik may, in his discretion forwai'd it to its des tination, destroy it or send it to the Minister of the Interior. Letters for an exile re ceived at the local post ofttce are turned over to the same oilicial, who opens and reads them, crosses out anything that may seem to him ohjcutionubfc, and delivers them after such mutilation, at his leisure. ]f lie wishes to torture or punish «n exile who is person ally obnoxious to him, or who has been 'audaciously impudent,' he may withold swell exile's letters together, nml deprive him for months of all news from the wife mid children whom he has been forced to leave unca...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

The good effect of t!ie late rains in softening the ground and rendering it fit for ploughing is now rapidly disappearing. What fell, indeed, was not sufficient in most parts of the district for turning over new ground, and most of the ploughing which has been gone on with duriug the past fortnight or three weeks has been upon formerly culti vated land. Ploughing of any kind is now becoming almost impossible, however, with out another fall of rain. About Monga and Reidsdale, where the rainfall is so very much greater than it is around Braidwood or to the westward of the town, there were some nice showers yesterday morning and the night before. On Monday the weather was hot enough for the middle of summer, and hopes of rain were held out in conse sequen.ee of such a change of temperature, but yesterday it got out fine again, after a dull, cloudy morning. There is evidently a great change taking pkee in the order of the seasons, not alone in this hemisphere, but throughout the world. ...

A Robber Brotherhood in Bombay. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

A Robber Krotlu'i-Iiout! in Bom bay. There liave been complaints for years past of the luggage of passengers on IiuHau rail ways having been rifled during transit. The Bombay police have now discovered that the robberies were committed by a gang of 23 European guards on the Ore.it Indian Pen insular Kaihv.ty. There is n simplicity of genius in the organ isution of the ' Golden | Gan^'os tlie robber brotherhood was called. : Admission to the profitable privileges of the ) brotherhood was obtained under the .sanction - of au oath binding the neophyte to iAsolute : secrecy. Once an accepted brother .1 pro- : inise was exacted that he would on every j occasion steal what he could. A further i stipulation seems to have been that he would ! steal honestly ; that is to say, that he would : put his spoil into a common fund to be fairly divided. A directory of three — the Three i Fompeys — superintended the afi;iii-s of the ! brotherhood, and it is hinted that they, as was only reasonable, h...

Sidney Cup. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 27 April 1889

Sydney Cuu. A good etnrt was quickly affected, Amina's colors being the first to show in advauce, but when fairly going Lady Lyon rushed to the front and held ft commanding lead into the straight. This she main tained past the stand, where she had Aniiim, Plu* torch, and, and Loehicl for her nearest attendants, Melos bringing up the rear. Kxccpt that Lady Lyon began to drop back, no change took place in the leading division until six furlongs from home, where Lnclnel took second place, and the field closed up. A furlong further on Lochiel had taken the lead, attended by Plutarch aud Aheroorn, Carbine, at this poiut, being absolutely last. Lochiel was the first to sweep into the straight, closely followed by Honeydcw and Abercorn, but on reaching the distance the colors of Carbine began to show very promently in the van.
