BRITISH AND FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

BRITISH m FOBEIGM. It has been calculated that the fishing lines used in Scotland in 1893 would, if tied together, nearly encircle the world twice. About 47,000,000 hooka have to 'be baited, each with two mussels, every 'time all the lines are set. The museum of stuffed fish which adorns the Piscatorial Society's Holborn clubroom has just been enriched by what SB probably the largest trout on record, scaling 321b., taken by Lieutenant-colonel Andrew Haggard (brother of Eider Hag gard, the novelist) in Lake Nepigoo, ?Canada, and presented. by him to the society. Two giraffes that Mr. Rowland Ward 'has just stuffed are, curiously enough, going out to Bechuanaland, having been prepared to the order of Khama, who is apparently going to start a museum in .connection with his Kraal. With them will go out a fox-hunting trophy, the re sult of Khama' s first ride to hounds. This, even more than the giraffe, will be an object of interest to the Bamangwato ? tribe. , With the return of the duk...

VICTORIA. Yielding to the solicitations of the Minister of Defence, the Premier gave his consent to the holding of a military en campment at Easter. The troops will go into camp at Laugwarrin. The contract for building the new Viticultural College at Rutherglen, from deBi'gns prepared by the Public Works Department, has been let to Mr. F. Henningsen, of Melbourne, at ££640. Edward Johnson, aged 23 years, living at Carey's Gully, was turning a windlass at a well when the handle slipped, flew back and struck him a terrible blow on the forehead. He died shortly after wards from concussion of the brain. He leavoB a wife and family. A report from Birchip states that the only water now available between Lakos Tyrrel and Buloke is in the tanks about Birchip, the Kaueira railway tank, and the Green Swamp. Cattle are dying in many parts from want of wafer. In the Nullawil district the drought has duven some settlers to the Murray, and others have turned their stock on the roads to shift for ...

LADIES' GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

LADIES' COSSIP. Lidy Herberton has been writing to the Dxily News to discuss the ' actual anatomical proportion in the e:z) of the human waist.' This is how Bhe discusses it : — ' The true pro portion is a difference of lOln. between the circumference of the bust and that of the waist. Thus a woman whose bust measures 36in, would hava a waist measuring 26in. Bast 40in., waist 30in., and so on. Very few corsets are made in this proportion, acd if they were still fewer people would buy them, 68 fashion decrees that the waist should mea sure from 12in. to I5lc. leas than the bust.' A woman sculptor, Miss Margaret Giles, has g sined the premium of £150 offered by the Art Union of London for the best statuette. Sir Frederick Liighton, president of the Royal Academy, who acted as iudge, awarded the priza to Miss Giles's statuette, representing Hero, the young prk-ete33, for love of whom Lsaudcr used to swiia the HellaEpont.

THE METAL PLATINUM: [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

THE METAL PLATINUM'. ? ^ ? The curious and useful metal platinum was probably known to the natives of South America many centuries ago. Travellers and workers in metals report that at the end of the seventeenth century it was already generally spoken ot as patina, which in Spanish means 'little silver,' pure eilvor being called platd. It was meant by this that platinum was a less valuablo metal than Bilver ; it wa3 not so white, did not. take so fine a polish, ould not be worked so easily, and it was also far Ies3 abundant. In the year 1736, a Spaniard, named Anteuio d'TJlloa, a great traveller, mathe matician and meteorologist, who had a special gift for observation, found this metal in the gold-bearing Bauds and gravels of South America, and drew the attention of scientific men to it in 1748. But, proviouB to this, Charles Wood, an Eugliah chemist, who was assay- master iu Jamaica, had seen the metal about the year 1741, or perhaps rather earlier, and gave specimens of it to Dr. B...

LITERATURE. CHINESE JUGGLERS AND THEIR MARVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

LITERATURE. CHINESE JUGGLERS AND THEIR MARVELS. ? «. ? Going through the Chinese quarter of the British settlement of Hong Kong one day, and noticing a large assembly of natives gathered in a park, generally used for a fair ground, I thought I would spend a little of my spare time ana' ascertain the attraction that was as yet unknown to me. This ground, or park, is always nearly filled with Chinese, who come here to drink their tea, buy their fruit, have their letters written, and consult the fortune-tellers, who they believe can foresee the rise or fall of the Mexican dollar on the morrow, and whether their clients will gain money in their next business undertaking. In India, where every wandering dervish is able to perform tricks little short of the marvellous, one gets accustomed to seeing trees and ropes rising from the ground before one's eyes, and little boys disappear ing at the other end of the same, &c, but in China these tricks are not often to be seen, and what fe...

No doubt Japanese manufacturers and merchants will direct their attention to these colonies-, and in the absence of protection colonial industry would simply be extinguished except in a few departments. Japaa is nnw sanding large quantities of carpets to the Uaited S sates, and her matches have already reached the Victorisu market, the protective duty notwithstanding.
