The Earth's Interior. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
The Earth's Interiors A literally burning questiou among scientists is that of the earth's interior. A M. Letean has just made a communication on the subject to the French Academy of Sciences. He con siders that the phenomena of the earth's cruest are wellexplained by considering that the planet's interior is molten, and that a layer of gaseous matter separates it from the portion of the crusts forming the continents, whereas thesea bedssink. The gradual escape of the gases, imprisoned underhigh pressure, will in time ex ceel the production of new supplies, when the pressure will diminish and the continents fallin, giving rise to more or less crateriform confign. ration. This is the state in which the moon now appears. Assuming the crust to be 180 miles thick, the pressure of the gaes should be 650 atmospheres, their temperatures 900 deg. C., and their density nearly equal to that of water. M. Latelu thinks that his theory makes it clear why volkaunoe have successfully receded in la...

The Ardlamont Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
The Ardlamont Case. -- Widely different opinions have been exo preseed regarding the positions of Scott and feonson under Seotch law since the conclu sion of the Ardlamont case. There seems to have been as much confusion about the matter in the Old Country as there is here. The situation is thus stated by an Edinburgh correspondent: It may be explained that the former (Scott) is declared an outlaw from Scotland, but the sentence does not apply to England. Out lawry is a sentence pronounced in the Supreme Criminal Court of Scotland m the absence of theacoused at the calling of the diet, that is, the day on which he is summoned to appear and stand his trial. The effect of this sentence isa forfeitureof the accused'sperson inlaw, so that he cannot bear testimony on any occasion, nor act as a juryman, nor hold any place of trust, nor ever pursue or defend in any civil or criminal process, nor claim any benefit of the law. He can be imprisoned if found within the Kingdom of Scotland, but...

Purrier Monumental Fund. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
W?? are pleased to learn of the proposed erection of a headstone in the empty railed-off enclosure which surrounds the remains o(the late Dr Vincent Purrier; and also those of his wife and sister in our cemetery. He is swell remembered amongst a large circle of friends and acquaintances by his genial courtesy of manner, and sympathetic kindliness of heart; a ' fine old English gentleman " of a type, alas! fast dying out. He was both hospitable and generous to a fault; and his medical skill was ever at the service of the needy. The monument, of granite or marble slab, will bear his own, his wife, and sister's names, and also the inscription, " Erected by their friends." There must be many "friends" who would be glad to contribute, if even a mite, as a tribute to their memory, and we shall be glad to take charge of, and acknowledge any donationtts, however small. About 20 to 30 guineas in all is needed, and Mr. J. C. Davis, of Taatooke, Ihon. treasurer, has already received the sum of...
The Brain of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
The Brain of Woman. The " New Review" contains an article by Professor Ludwig Biehner on "The Brain of Woman," and proceeds to give foeo it the. followingextract: "If we consider that for thousands of years woman, by reason of her subordinate social position, has received a different education from her male partner, and that her training has lead her in quite another direction than his, that her horzion has been a more limited one, and. moreover, that every encouragement has been given to the play of her emotions at the expense of the activity of herintellect, and finally, that this state of affairs has lasted from generation to generation through mother to daughter, then I say that from a physiological standpoint there should be no cause fir surprise that, as a result, woman should differ from man, that her bra' shouldbe inferior to his, or, at any rate, shoul have developed on different lines, or, as w havebeen saying, that the fore part of he brain should be found to be propor ti...

Primitive Methodist Church. '!ite sittings of the Annual Assembly of the Primitive Methodist Churches of Victoria and Tasmania, took place at Geelong last week. Some seventy-six delenates attended, and wereentertained during their stay with much heartiness and good-will by the members and'ad herents of the Packington Street and Chilwell Churches. The business sess. sions, under the genial presidency of the Rev W\. Hunt, were characterised with harmony of feeling and kindliness of actioh.

POPULAR SCIENCE A Respirator Mask. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
POPULAR SOIENCE. A Respirator Mask. A respirator has been patontedtwe are in formed, which is advocated for usen collieries, gas works, chemical works, breweries, distill eries, in firebrigades, on board ship, or any wrherewere the atmosphere is impore, poison. o., or atherwise unfit for ohuman inhalation.

Telescopes of the Future. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Telescopes of the Future. The great telescopes of the future, in the opin ion of Mr. Alvan G..Clark, willbe refractors, as these are much less sensitive than reflectors to the influences of changes of temperature, of air currents, and of flexure. It seems to be possible now to get good glass discs, both crown and flint of any size, and thediameter of thelenses produ'ced may be limited only by the skill of the optician grinding them. Larger telescopes are desirable, for the most important visualdiscoveries have been made with the largest telescopes iu use at the time. Mr Clark's idea of the future great telescope is that its size will progressively increase, and that it will be mounted e~eatorially and will be provided with the most perfect driving clock to be devised, thatit should have a longer polar anie than is generally used in America, and that it should comprise two instruments, one for visual and one for photographic work, so hung on trun nions asto counterpoise one another. ...

Correspondence. We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. RAFFLES AT BAZAARS. To the Editor of the Broadford Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Correspondence. tWe do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. RAFFLES AT BAZAARS. To the Editor of the Broadford Courier. StnR.-Kindly grant me space for a few ines in your valuable journal to take ex ception to a few remarks made by the Rev. It. Braddock durinr his sermon of Sunday evening last at St. Matthew's Church. That gentleman, whilst discoursing on the subject of gambling, referred to raffles. &c., at bazaars, altogether condemning the game of chance. Mr. B's suggestion is, instead of raffling, to use some means where skill will be brought into practice, which, to my mind, is not nearly as fair as raffling; as in a raffle everyone has an equal chance, whereas if skill was brought into play the most skilful would win every time, and people do not like contesting a thing which they know at the outset they have not a possible chance of winning. Of course, some may argue that handicapping could be resorted to, but where is the man who w...

ACRICULTURAL COLUI?IT, Points of a Horse. A paper wae read at the last meeting of the East Sussex Farmers' Club on the "Point- ci a Horse" by Mr Sessions. The value cf :he horse at the present day, the lecturer po'i;:d out, dependad either one his heine able to aF:rd ,an a certain amount of pyhaica pleasure, c to render him pecuniary service. With regard to the latter calculation of value, it waoe to I- r e. membered that thehorae had now to col,:ete with forces that formerly were unknown, ?.h a eam re and electricity. He should !es?e the race-horse on one side, and deal only will, .oLe heorse kept for pecuniary services. Contiur ug, the lecturer showed fossil remains of te e:,!y tye of three-toed horse. Mr Sessions, hto - ever, was not able to show an example il the etill more ancient horse with five toes tully de vyleped. The small spliat.hbnes, as he i.oted out, are all that remain in the modern horse of three lost toes, which in process of cvoLiticn have been found unnecessary. ...
