Only Recently Abolished. ."y, » Dolttware has punished thioveg, highwnymen, assailants of women, and pick-pockets by pillory and wlilp ping--po.it since 1717, when tho first court sentence to tha pillory was recordod. Delaware having no penitentiary, punishments .are inflicted in coun ty gaols. In each of the county sent gnols at Wilmington, Dover, and Salisbury stood tho Inst relics of tho pillory in the United States. They have been used for punishing many forms of crime, principally wife-beating and petty thieving. In the Wilmington Gaol the pil lowy was on a platform, erected above the wliiping-post, making a two-storey affair. There are aper tures for two prisoners, so that they may keep company in their misery. It has been named "Susan." Sentences havo been imposed fre quently requiring both pillory and whipping. In such cases the pri soner wns made to stand one hour J with neck nnd hands held fast in the vice, and then taken out, for the whipping.

Weather Made to Order. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914

Weather Made to Order.. Is it possible to make weather to order ? In the opinion of Hint.emi nent scientist, Sir Oliver Lodge, it is by 110 monns beyond the powers of man, and he advances the sug gestion that exploration of the up per, regions would result in dis coveries which-would enable tis_ to control the weather. The latter, he contends, is merely a matter of electrical conditions, and tho ingredients necessary for fino weather are an upper atmosphere charged with positivo electricity and a negative charge upon tho earth's surface. Much, ho says, could be done by placing a coppor rod round tho earth parallel to the Equator and discharging millions of amperes (units) from this rod. Sir Oliver Lodge points out that wo have spent millions on building rail ways, and why not invest capital in controlling tho weather by this means? Meantime, while we nre thinking about the copper rod, much might bo done by electricians. Sir oiiver Lodge suggrsts that they rhould as cend a high mount...

An Oft-Told Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914

An Oft-Told Tale. The taio of the loss of the Birken head has often been related, but can never be too often told. Tho troop transport loft Simon's Bay on February 26, 1852, bound for I'ort Elizabeth, Seven hours after leaving Capetown sho struck a rock, and twenty-five minutes later all that was visible was her masts, crowded with despairing survivors. Among the troops on board (drafts sont out to tho Kaffir War, thon raging), who gave a still unfor gotten example of calm discipline and unflinching courage under such terrible circumstances, were somo of tho Twelfth Lancers under Captain Bond-Sheldon, a veteran who still survives. Ordered to get tho horses over board, the captain succeeded in do ing so, his own charger among tho rest. Some swam landwards, somo out to sea; but most doubt less became tho prey of the sharks, which, hovering around the doomed vessel, added a new terror to the situation. Then an ellort was made- to got out .the boats, filled with women and children. Befo...

Indian Heraldics. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914

Indian Heraldics. Alert Boy, nil old Indian village on Vancouver Island, Alaska, pos sesses the most complete collection of totem poles to be found any where on the Pacific const. They represent the family heral dics of the Siwash or Const In dians, and every house has its own totem pole, consisting of figures of birds and animals and other monstrosities rudely carved in wood and quaintly coloured. The top figure represents the crest of the j owner of the house, the one beneath it that of his wife, and the re maining ones those of lus wife's relatives. As a rule, there are only three or four figures carved on a totem, and only the totems of the greatest chiefs have six figures car ved on them. This custom seems to have origi nated in the transmigratory idea of the souls of men passing into the forms of birds and animals, and is j interesting as showing that the In i dians had some faint idea of a supernatural power.

Trams on Holy Ground. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914

Trams on Holy Ground. ? ' J, The statement that Jerusalem and its vicinity are to be modernised by the laying dou'n of un electric lighting plant and the construction 'of a water supply _ from WadyForuh, and a tramway between the city and Bethlehem, causes little dis quiet . in quarters where nny vandalism in Jerusalem would be resented most keenly. " Heally, I think the tramway to Bethlehem will bo quite n good thing," says a prominent member of the Palestine Exploration l-'und Committee. ' "it will be well outside the city walls, and there is nothing of interest that needs to be jealously preserved on the four or fivo miles of country road between Jerusalem and Ueth lehem. For the electric light pro ject, too, there is much to be said, and tho water supply is certainly ur gently needed." Up- to the pre sent, Jerusalem, so far as tho city within tho old walls is concerned, .has suffered singularly littlo from its contucl. with twentieth-century civilisation.
