THE ARDOURS OF PURSUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 24 February 1898

THE ARDOURS OF PURSUIT. Everybody has heard of the man who followed the'trail of a "grundy" for several days, and had nearly overtaken the game, when he suddenly gave up further pursuit because " the trial waa getting too thundering fresh." - Last autumn a party of amateur sports- men went on a bear-hunt They found a i trail, and, after a hard day's work, were re ' warded for their labour by hearing a low growl in a thicket a few rods ahead, when one of the party suddenly commenced a very hasty retreat, remarking that " he haden't lost any bear and he'd he shot if he wah going to (mut for one any lougor."

WELL-KNOWN BREAD-MAKER FINED. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 24 February 1898

WELL-KNOWN BREAD-MAKER FINED. Richard Nevill, the well-known bread manufacturer and proprietor of " Nevill's bread," of the Prior)', Acton was summoned by Inspector Tyler, of the Middlesex Country Council, under the food and drugs Act, for having sold bread other- wise than by weight. Asked by the Clerk if he pleaded guilty or not guilty, «the Défendent said that he would rather hear the evidence first. Inspector Tyler proved stopping the defendant's servant after he had served a small shop-keeper with six loaves, without weighing them, in Stanley road, Acton, on November 8. Witness weighed the loaves, They were supposed to weigh iib, each.

EYELESS, BUT THEY SEE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 24 February 1898

EYELESS, BUT THEY SEE. Eyes are popularly considered to be quite necessary to sight, but this is an error, if we are to believe a recent experimenter. Many crearures with- out eyes can see, at least they can distinguish perfectly well between light and darkness and even between different degrees of light. This is the lowest degree of seeing, to be sure, but still it is really sight, and deffering scarcely from the vision of some insects that possess yees than this does from our own clear sight, Creatures that see without eyes see by means of their skins. All skins are potential eyes ; that is, they are sensi- tive to light. In animals that have eyes the sensitiveness has been highly localised and greatly increased-so that man for instance, has a'etina very sensitive to light, and an expanse of ordinary skin which possesses a sensitiveness to light so slight* that it is hardly conscious of it. But in many eyeless creatures the lack of eyes is in part made up by increased sensitivenes...

Doing Two Things At Once. Ax inspector was examining a school in a country district some distance from a railway station. He was afraid of losing his train, so, hurrying with his work, he tried to do two things at once, standing in the doorway, he gave out dictation to standard II. in.the main room,'' and at the same time dictated a sum to stand- ard V. in the classroom, jerking out a few words alternately. The sum was: " If a couple of fat ducks cost 19s., how many can be got course the poor children heard both, and got a bit mixed. One little girl's dictation began . " Now a couple of fat ducks prowling about in search of a lion who had lost 19s." While a Standard V. lad was scratching-his head over the following sum : " If 7* couples of fat lions cost 19s., how much prowling could be got for £71 18s. 9d?"'

PORT DOUGLAS HARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 24 February 1898

PORT DOUGLAS HARBOR. If there is one thing more than another 'that a Poit Douglasite will not allow a stranger to insult with impunity it is the Port Douglas Harbor and when someone recently tried to "poke borak" at the splendid port, the local paper man thus carne down on him :-"It is amusing to note how spiteful some people grow when their little attempts to make an honest penny by foisting some ancient .or worth- less article on their fellowman are frustrated. They will take a lot of trouble, and even go so far as to pain- fully string together words enough to choke up two columns of a newspaper, in order to vent their spleen against those who «ere too cute to be "taken in." The Cairns ".Advocate" of the 9th instant must have been very short of "copy" when it found space for a lengthy "con- tribution," written by an individual who brought an old and pr.tctieally useleis boat to this port with the intention of selling her to some local "innocent," but he was unable to catch a "fla...
