THE PERMANENT ARTILLERY BAND. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE " SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

THE PERMANENT ARTILLERY ? BAND. (to the editor of inn ' sukdat times.') 1 Sir;— Inybur issue of last Sunday you publish a letter from Mr. de Groen complaining of members of the above band accepting engage ments at rates below those of professional musicians. Now, in justice to a body of men who, as military musicians, cannot defend themselvos through your valuable journal,, allow me, as one who has known this band, and who has also been thrown into contact with its members for years, to offer a fow remarks under this head. In tho first plfi.ee, it is a well-known fact that no member of the above band would for one momont think of accepting an engagement under price, and during tho past year engagement after engagement has been turnod away because the money offerod has been thought to be detrimental to the outside musician's. What has been the oonsequonce? A sort of freo fight amongst the so-called professional musicians, and the acceptance of the engagement at figuros very seldom me...

THE SERVICE. DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

THE SERVICE. i DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION. (Br the 'Sukdat Times' Commissioner. ) The State school system is now an accepted institution, and very few can be found who would bo prepared ;o advocate hand ing over the instruction of the rising generation wholly to private hands, or a reversion to the old unsatisfactory method of subsidising private educational estab lishments from State funds, which was open to so many glaring abuses. The public school has come to stay, and, on the whole, has proved its right to stay as a settled national institution by its admirable results ; yet, if the most ardent and enthusiastic advocates of State educa tion in early days had been told that the time would come when a million of people would have to contribute in taxation the annual sum, £763,257 16s 9d, under tho head of public instruction, they would havo resented the statement as a gross exaggera tion. We have now reached a point when the warmest friends of our public school Bystem might ...

INOCULATION FOR SNAKE-BITE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

INOCULATION FOR SNAKE-BlTE. A recent case of shake-bite in. the city possesses some features of interest which appear to suggest one direction in which the search for antidotes should proceed. A man named George Clifford, who, it seems, h'afe been more than once previously bitten by venomous snakes, was again bitten \vhilst handling one of these creatures oa Wednesday last, and although he did not obtain medical aid until the following day, is still living, and apparently suffering no other inconvenience than a swollen hand. Dr. Milford, who ultimately attended the man, expresses tho opinion that he owes his immunity from the power of the snake's venom to the fact of his having been previously inoculated with the venom of snakes, and thus, as it were, rendered practically snake-proof. If this theory is correct, does it not suggest the possibility of rendering the human body incapable of receiving fatal injury by snake-bites by the injection of attenuated virus, thus following out th...

LADIES "ON THE NOD." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

LADIES ' ON THE NOD.' It appears that some ladies still travel 'on the nod' on N.S.W. railways^ not withstanding the recent exposure. The following is part of a paragraph appearing in the weekly railway notice issued to employes of the Service : — ' Visitor's pass lost. — Visitor's pass No. 90 (endorsed for sleeping berth), issued by the Secretary for Railways in favor of- Miss Thynne, available between all stations, from February 22 to March 22, has been lost.' The notice goes on to request a sharp look out for the pass. What we would like to kuow is, how many more ladies are there travelling ' on the nod ' on our railways ? Nothing would have been known of this case had not the information leaked out through the loss of the pass. The corres pondent who furnished us with the in formation writes: — 'Who is this Miss Tiiynne ? I suppose she is someone with heaps of money? This is a wonderful country ! If one has plenty of money one can be carted all over the country free on railways,...

THE NOTE AND THE BEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

THE MOTE AND THE BEAM. Satan rebuking sin has rarely met with an apter illustration than the episode of the Premier of Victoria lecturing the Govern ment of South Australia in regard to the action of the latter in entering into an exclusive reciprocity treaty with Now Zealand as being contrary to the interests of Intercolonial'Federation. Mr. Kingston, t.hn South Australian Prntnior flonn nnf fail to take advantage of the splendid opening thus afforded him for giving the Victorian Government and people a piece of his mind, which he does in this very candid fashion : — ' Assuming for a moment that Federation would not be advanced by the modicum of Freotrade secured by this treaty between New Zealand and this colony, I respectfully invite you to con sider how far Victoria is justified in com plaining. It is impossible to forget that Victoria has never considered the neigh boring colonies in her commercial policy. She is directly responsible for the existence of many of the barriers to...

A NOVEL PAPER RAILWAY In Work at the " Sunday Times" Office. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

A NOVEL PAPER RAILWAY In Work at the ' Sunday Times ' Office. There is now at work in the Sunday Times Office a novel and useful invention designed and made by Mr. George Tathiun, the engineer connected with the establishment. 'For the purposo of conveying tho papers from the machine to the publishing room, he has con structed an elevator which is nothing more nor less than a miniature railway. The rails are of 5-8in iron, and two iron trucks attached to a steel rope worked by one of the pulleys of the ordinary service are capable of carrying the papers at the rato of 30,000 an hour. Owing to a necessity to save space the double line runs into one at tho machine end, and this rendered it requisite that the 'points' of the line should be altered. ' To do SO ft, Very clever but simple and effective idea is intro duced by which the truck on one side, by mean3 of a trip-motion, alters in its passage the line for the truck on tho other.

There was only a fair attendance at the Complimentary Meeting to Lord Hopetoun at Caulfield to-day. Owing to tho death of Sir Eobert Duff, Lord Hopetoun was not present. The afternoon was showery. Tho running of Menangle in the Hurdle Eace was very peculiar, but the stewards did not think it necessary to hold an enquiry. Ialanthus won the Hopetoun Handicap rather handily, young Stevenson riding a very nice race on him. The stewards were asked by the owner of Hova to hold an enquiry into that horse's running in the Hopetoun Handicap, _ but they refused to do so. The light-weight jockey, J. Stevenson, had another great day, riding tho winners of three races. The machine went wrong again. At tho start of one of tho races a horse got his head in the ropes of the machine, and it could not go up on one side. Malolo was, iu conse quence, left at t...
