SANDOW AND SAMSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
SANUOW AND SAMSON. SAIWX W AT w IE .AT The most remarkable thinr about San dow (writes the "Now York Herald") is that he is growing tronger every day. It would appear from some of his performances that he is strong enough already. He is sufficiently provided with muscle to go through life with cut fear of being abused or down trodden by his fellow creatures. That this is s-ois proved by a little incident that occurred while the strong man was in Paris. He was -topping at one of thebi bhotelsthere,andafter dinnerstrelled into the billiard room for a smoke. A certain Frenchman, who took dandow for an ordinary man, having been in trodu:ed, began to at in an overbearding snanuer,'andfinallystruck him in the face. handow took this good naturedly for a while, "but at last his human nature asserted itself, and after the manhad struck him repeatedly, he got mad. Be didn't strike his perseentor,for such a proceeding might have beenfollowed by grave results, and Sandow was sensible YEIV:lT ON...

Electrocution. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
Electrocution. ,o 2he following particulars of the bungled, execution by electricity in July last, duly re ported in recent cables are furnished by the " Westminster Gazette:" A horrible scene to'k place in Auburn Prison, New York, at the electrocution of a man named Taylor. After the prisoner had been tied in the special chair used for execution byelectricity and the current lad been turned on, the footrest of the chair sud denly broke. This caused the dynamo to rive out, and, consequently, a second current could not be applied. Taylor began to breathe heavily, and was carried out into the corridor groaning, whilst his pulse continued to grow stronger. The doctors in attendance express the opinion that he was unconscious afterthe first contact, which was of 1700 volts strengtn and that afterwards his condition was anal agous to that of a man suftering from apoplexy. About an hour after th:a unsuccessful attempt, Taylor was given a dose of morphine, and was again placed on the chair...
HISTORICAL ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
HISTORICAL ERRORS. Thereis no historic authority for the state. ment that little George Washington cut down the cherry tree. The Pharaoh of the Exodus was not drowned in the Ifed Sea. His mummy has been found, the scull split by a battle Ca?sar did not say " E:t to, Brute." Eye witnesses to the assassination deposed that "he died fighting, but silent, like a wolf." Wel!ington, at Waterloo, did not say, "Up, guards, and at them." The words were put into his mouth by a lively English writer. Richard III. was not a hunchback, but a soldier of fine form, some pretension to good looks, and great personal strength and courage. General Cambronne did not say, "The guard dies, but does not surrender." The words were the invention of a Paris journalist and attributed to him. C.e?ar did not cross the Rubicon; it lay on the opposite side of the Italian peninsula from the point where he left his own posses sions and entered Italy. Pocahontas did not save the life of John Smith. It has been ascer...
AN AFRICAN ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
AN AFRICAN ROMAHCE. England deals with international difficul ties chiefly by two metals, lead and gold. In cidentally there are two other metals. used in complications, cold steel and cold silver. As a general thing where gold will purchase the way out of the difficulty, Eng. land prefers to use it quietly. The ,ifli culty aisappearo, and none but those in the swim know just how things came about. But in most cases there is the clink of gold in the background. Henry Lecgett was a young Englishman who hoped to make his fortune in one African expedition, but in reality made it in another, and the gold he won, although it came out of Africa, had its source in England. He accompanied a great African travel ler in an expedition through the savage continent. He left England with high hopes, and returned a somewhat broken and disappointed man. He had no chance of accumulating gold, and he soon found that if anything notable were done by any member of the expedition except the head of it, ...
Greek Lullabies. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
Greek Lullabies. The Greek lullabies are charming, although they do not very readily lend themselves to translation into English. There is some thing very wholesome and very pretty about this - Oh, slumber; washed on Saturday, On Sunday dressed in clean array, On Monday morn to school away, As sweet as apple, bright and gay, Steep the mighty all has flown. To Alexandria she has gone: Nani, thou canary bright. Who my brain bewilders quite.

EMPEROR WILLIAM AND HIS TROOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
EMPEROR WILLIAM APD HIS TROOPS. Our cables duly reported the varying fortunes of the Emperor William'ejyachtn the recent regatta at Cowes. I have taken the opportunity (writes a correspondent of " The Westminster Gazette") to interview at Cowes some of the German "tars" who paraded the streets while onshore, and I havereceived the following details in regard to the German Emperor's life afloat. His Majesty associates with the gentlemen of his suite " as if they all were his equals." When on board his yacht he often takes the arm of one of his attendants, and walks about with him in pleasant conversa tion. He never appears to be haugthy, and does not like his friends when speak ing to him to take off their hats. He is in many respects the type of a German corps-student. He likes merry surroundings andharmlesspleasure. Whilst on a yachting tour in the north he often went with his suite to some lonely spot on the shore, rend then the seagulls could witness the re markable spectacle tha...
A Nationalised Liquor Traffic. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
A Nationalised Liquor Traffic. Whatever else may be said about it, State Socialism can undoubtedly be made to pay. We know this from the experience of our own Post Office. Another instance is the alcohol monopolyin S witzerland, about which Mr Joseph King gives -ome interesting in. formation in the current number of the "Economic Review." In 1S01 the Swiss Confederation made a profit of neerlv 1.250,000 out of its nationalisation of spirits. The profit goes back as a "ranut in aid" to the Cantons, which, however, are re quired to devote one-tenth of the grants in "combating aloholism." Great latitude of interpretation the Cantons allow them selves in their combat against spirits the erection of training colleges for elementary teachers being among the methods adopted! Meanwhile, the financial success of the monopoly has, it seems, given a greatimpetus to Socialistic ideas in Switzer land; and among objects which are being suggested for nationalisation, Mr King mentions petroleum, wa...
The Rupee's Value. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
The Rupee's Value. Ir L. C. I'robyn, a good authority, says in the "Times," apropos of M1r Palgrave's suggestion that the rupee should be worked up to is lld: "Before the closure of the mints the vale of uncurrent silver an India was probably not less than Iix. I00,000,000. It has been estimateddat a higher figure by such competent authorities as Mr lt. B. Cihapman and Mr F. C. IHarrisn. The bulk of this had been accumulated since l835, in consequence of silver having been the monetary standard, and of the people having been led to believe that it would remain so. At:4d an ounce this silver is now worth, in goid sixteen-penny rupees, about Rx. ;17,000,000. There has thus been a fall in its value, as measured in the current coin of the country, of I:x. (i;,000,000. Should, however, the rupee be forced up from 1id to 23d, the value of this silver, measured in rupees, will ,be (still assumt tno the price of :34d aln ounce) only lix. 164,2886,000--that is to say, if the nominal value of...
