Three things combine to make it so-the high aid even quality of the competitors, the large field that it Tcems likely will Inee Ar VWatson,-and the obstaclcs trainers now manage to put in the way of sporting touts arriving at the condition of their charge.. It is only by careful analysis of the wci: iti and performances and the condition of the various candidates that one can venture upon forming an opinion of the result of the race. To those who may hive the in clination to come and see this Cup, and invest their money on the event, some in formation respecting the chances of the respective horses may be gathered from the following: THE ADMIRAL, 9.9, is top weight. Mr Cook seems to think that he is unfavorao;y treated. However, he got an exc ,lent f iurth last year with 9.1, beating all the top. weights-a great perfo...

THE CORRUPTION OF THE o PRESS. a al - tes OHAPTER II. of an The ethics of journalism, like all other dii ethics, are regulated by the circuim- th stances of the environment. Between 1e those of the town and the country the ac only difference that I can perceive is ,e that the country pressman is servile iu set order to live, while his lordly c tvyth; brother is sycophantic, in order that he pa lmay rule. It is clear that the latter is firs the greatest sinner of the two, and to the make things worse he hides his hypcrisy ,o under the mask of virtue. Both are ad, equally accessible to the buying over int process, but the man of the country is car not generally offered a bribe. However, rig the Press, little or big, is the engine of apl freedom and universal enlightenment. the We live in an age of real progress, bui nevertheless the degeneracy of the Press qtr is one of those facts too ni,torious t , el escape the observation of men capable of seeing and thinking for themselves.

HOW ORANGES ARE SIZED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 28 October 1893

lO1 ORANGES ARE SIZED. There are hundreds of orange groves in Florida, each producing many thousand boxes every season. The oranges are shipped and sold according to size, and there are asually four grades, known as number one, two, three, four. To sirt all these millions of oranges would be a very long and telious job if it were done by haqd, and they woul. ne imperfectly sorted, too, for one could not judge by the eye alone exactly what the size of the orange is, and mary would go into the wrong boges. T't to overcome all this diffiulty the orange growers use a simple device called an orange sorter, One newspaper describes it as merely a long inclinedt trough, with different sized holes cut in the bottom. Under the holes are placed boxes. A basket of oranges is brought in and dumped into the upper end of the trough, wnich is just wide enough to allow them to roll down in single file, one after another. As they run by the first hole, which is very small, all the little ones drop th...
