THE ART OF DRIVING A NAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
THE ART OF DRIVING A NAIL, -4~---r The driving of a nail is deemed so simple a matter, that inability to do the job is often spoken of as though typifying entire lack of me chanical ability ; yet it may be that some skilled mechanics have some thing to learn in regard to this elementary operation. It usually takes a woodworker's apprentice a year or more to learn that he doesn't know how. A fledgeling mechanic who spoke sneeringly of a man whom he heard using several blows of the hammer to drive a single nail, was some what crestfallen when told that' the nail would hold better when driven "home" by several light taps, than when driven by one heavy one. "Why ?" he asked in surprise. "Because," said the other, "when you drive a nail home with a heavy blow, it is apt to rebound a trifle, loosening the grip of the wood fibres on it. Drive it almost down, if you will, with as hard blows as you wish, but linish the job with several light blows." One who thinks that the driving of a nail ...
INTERESTING HISTORICAL EVENTS. Colonel Wade forces the Khyber Pass. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
INTERESTING HISTORICAL EVENTS. ---+---- Colonel Wade forces the Khyber Pass. By Friday, July, 26, 1839, during the first of the numerous wars be tween the English and the Afghans, Colonel Sir Claude Martine Wade had succeeded in getting his troops through the Khyber Pass, a narrow entry from the North-West of India into that country. It would be only about ten miles long if straight, but twists so much as to lengthen the distance to about thirty-three miles. The slate cliffs which form its sides rise perpendicularly to a height of from 600ft. up to 1,970ft., while the passage varies in width from 450ft. down to as narrow as 10ft. The official despatch sent to Eng land by the Earl of Auckland, then Governor-General of India, states that "it was not upon record that the celebrated Khanibar Pass had e.er previously been forced." The occasion of the invasion was a dis pute as to possession of the Af ghan throne, as a consequence of %h;ch Dost Mohammed Khan lost it, and Suya Shah gained ...
AMAZING STEEL MAKING. NEW PROCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
AMAZING STEEL MAKIING. NEW PROCESS. It is rumoured that Messrs. Vickers Son and Maxim are negotiating for the British rights of a newly dis covered process of converting finish ed iron into steel. As an instance of what can be done by this process, the inventor can take a heavy chain and give one end of it a thin coating of steel, thin as an eggshell. To the other end he can give a coat of half an inch in thickness, while the centre will be converted into solid steel. He can also work up a line razor blade out of iron, shap ing and grinding it to the required form, and after this is done he puts the blade through his steeling pro cess and converts it into the hard est kind. 'Steel blades produced in this way are, it is claimed, equal in every respect to the finest Shef field makes. "I firmly believe," says the inno vator, "our process will revolution ise the whole steel business. Big furnace methods will be entirely superseded. I have tested the met hod in every posihble way, and no...
MY JUMP. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
MY JUMP. ---+-- From the Prison-House to Freedom. It was at Cambridge that I found out what a fool I was teaching my self to be. From 1881 to 1884 (which was my' third year) it had been gra dually da.'ning upon me, I sup pose, though it came with a rush at the end. I don't know just how or why I found out what I had to do, if I was to justify myself to mnyself. One morning, anyhow, I woke iup out raged by the ceiling of my room, shocked at the four walls of it. I seemed to be strangling, I thought that they were closing in upon me. I chucked everything. I walked out, I disappeared. I walked, as a matter of fact, to King's Lynn, and got there lateish. I found a solemn lookiing buster in an inn-yard rumi nating over an ostler at his horse, and jingling half-crowns in his breeches' pockets. That was the rhythm of his life-"Property, pro perty, property ;" but le was better than he seemed-had a kink in him somewhere which saved him. We got talking. He was a good sort, with a Lumorous tw...
HOUSE-CLEANING WITH A BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
HOUSE-CLEANINU WIT A BALLOON. In the centre of the Pittaburg gaol there is a dome one hundred and eleven feet high, inaccessible except by balloon or high scaffold. Round the inside of the dome are several strong barred wondows, and they, like the balance of the dome's in terior, are absolutely black, show in, in strong contrast with the white wall4 below. How to clean the dome has been a puzzle that every official about the building, including the judges of the court, have endeavoured to solve. The county commissioners suggested a scaffolding, but the cost was con sidcred too much for simple clean ing of windows and a couple of co ts of whitewash on the dome. Block an I tackle and other schemes ha e been suggested, but all were discarded as impracticable but one. 'Jhat oie is an idea of the war den's which may Le put into erecu tion, unless a better one is present ed.

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. THE SUEZ CANAL. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
WORLD-WIDE NOTES. TILE SUEZ CANAl,. T'rh jubilee of the Suez Canal, work on which commenced in 1859, took place on the 25th of April. The canall was opened for traf!lc in 1809, and at that date the depth of water wa~ 26 feet. 'rhe present de,:th is abo:t 323 feet, and Im provements are now going on which will bring it to 34 feet. 'rhe origi nal width was 71 feet on the hot tom, and this has been gradually in creased, until at present the bottom width is 97; feet. In 1870 there passed through the canal 486 ships, whlose gross tonnage was 654,914. Last year 3,795 ships used the ca nil, and their total tonnage was over 19,000,000 tons.
COLD-WATER COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
OOLD-WATER COFFEE. Dr. I. Amory commends the use of coffee prepared by cold water in stead of the usual fusion with oill ing water. It may be prepared by passing the cold water thrcigh fine ly ground coffee in a porcelain or china Ipercolator. This extracts only one-ninth of the caffein and one-fifth of the tannin contained in the bean, and it preserves the aroma of all the volatile oils in the bean. Consequently the wakefulness, excita billty, .and digestive disturbances are much less with the cold water coffee. The doctor has found from personkl experience that coffee thus prepared may be carried for two or three weeks without any loss of col our, aroma, or strength if it is kept in a cool place, carefully corked. This infusion is made strong, and when it is wanted for use hot water or milk is added. This sets free toe volatile oils and fragrant coffee results.-" Popular Science Siftin s."

A USE FOR SURPLUS CAPITAL OF MULTI-MILLIONAIRES. ----+--- Engineers have probed the earth only to a depth of about 6500 feet below the surface, and M1. Camille Flammarion, the famous astronomer' and geologist, has just renewed his old suggestion that a great explora tion shaft should be sunk to the ut most possible depth in a thorough investigation of the crust of our planet. This pit should be 200 or 300 yards in diameter, cased with a massive iron ring. The heat in creases at an average rate of one Centigrade degree for every 108 feet, and the temperature of boiling water might be expected at a little less than two miles, but the boring should t? much deeper. The land in France, as well as certain plains of Belgium, Hfolland, and Roumania, should have favourable spots for ex cavation.

MEN WHO WALKED ON ALL FOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
MSlN WHO WALKED ON AILL FOURS. In the kingdom of Poland there was formerly a law according to whichfany person fomnd guilty of slondJe was compelled to walk on all fours through the streets of the town where he lived accompanied ly the bidle, as a sign that he was disgraed and unworthy of the name of man. At the next public festival the deenquent was forced to appear crawling upon hands and knees un derneb the banqueting table and barki like a dog. Every guest was liberty to give him as mhny kicks ' he chose, and he who had been Anatered must towards the end of th banquet throw a picked bone at t culprit, who, picking it up with is mouth, would leave the room on all fours. Fe People have the least idea of the er of the press in Germany.

CHAPTER XXIX. MADAME GOES HOME. The new nurse had come, and ma dame was waiting to say good bye to Lady Dalrymple when the doctor and her ladyship entered the dining room at the Holles. "He is conscious. He opened his eyes just before/the nurse came into the room. and I gave him a sooth ing draught which has sent him to sleep. I hope he will do now, but there is much to thank you for, ma dame," said Dr. Bowers. "Did he know you, Lady Dal rymple ?

SCRAPS IN BRIEF, 4------ Cucumbers were originally tropical vegetables. A Russian is not of age until he is twenty-six. Insanity is quite as prevalent among animals as among human be ings. Slips of mulberry biark serve for money in some of the interior towns of China. The smallest salary paid to the head of a civillsed Government is £3 a year to the President of the Repub lic of Andorra, in the Pyrenees.

Never Satisfied. A gentleman in Dublin, speaking of the Trish, said that nothing ever s:atisled them, and that he was will Inz to prove his words' on a wager that if he should go to the door and call a calb, no matter what fee he would give, the driver would ask for more. The wager was taken for ten pounds sterling. The gentleman called n cab, drove about a quarter of a mile, stepped out, and handed the driver half a sovereign, the legal fee being one shilling. Cabby drove oil. The gentleman who had taken the waoer was exulting in his tri umph, when suddenly the cabby re turned, and, touching his liat, said : "Plea-e, sir, have ye a, durty thre'penny bit about ye ?

Veiled Ladies. The Church of Corinth understood the Apostle to intcnd that all wo men,, young or old, should wear veils during worrhip, and observed thlis a tho u.n'-e. So did certain other churches in Greece and the bar barian districts adjoining Greece. Other churches held that the Apostle had Ind no command upon girls, and left the matter to the discretion of parents. But towards the end of the recond century, owing to the strong movement towards Asceti cism, an effort had been made to bind the rule upon gifjs also.

Getting Lost in the Tropical Forests. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
Getting Lost in the Tropical Forests. The trackless land is as difficult to travel without a compass as the trackless sea. The Chief Engineer of the Honduras National Railway cautions engineers to take special precautions against being lost, as in the tropical forest one speedily be comesa bewildered, and without a cornlass there is absolutely no way of determining direction.- The csn is always invisible, except possibly when directly overhead. There is no moss on the trees to serve as a !guide, and any neighbouring eleva Itions are hidden by the density of the foliage. It is further. pointed out that there are sunny plains where also the compass 'is much ne ded. On the treeless Ilanos of South America, with no hills in sight, the sun indicates ; direction when it is near rising and setting, but at mid-day it gives no clue, as it is directly overhead, so that a man coters his own shadow. Go into any public school in any American city, and you will find the boys and girls assembled i...
IN OTHER LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
IN OTHER LANDS. -4---- The seditious movement both at home and in India may be said to have reached its culminating point in the murder of Sir Curzon Wyl lie at the Imperial Institute, which has I.roucht to light, it ts said, an association of Indians in London called "The Sons of Sivi." This name is an equivalent to murderers, for every deed of blood in Intia is done to the greater honour and glory either of the god Siva or the goddess Kali, both of whom typify destruc tion. From time immemorial mur darers in India have mingled religion with slaying; their weapons are gen erally dedicated to the god of de struction, and if robbery is part of their crime, a portion of their spoil is offered at the shrine. The images of Siva have a most terrifying ap pearance. He has five heads, each with three eyes, and in his four hands he carries a bow, a sword, an arrow, and. a club. Round his hair and wrists cobras are coiled, and his necklace is of human skulls. "I should not be' at all surpris...
