VARIETIES. GLASS EYES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 5 May 1905
VARIETIES GLASS EYES. Aitchison, iho greatest manufacturer and dealrr in (riaas oyca in Europo, vae recently interviewed, lie eays tbat Eugland alone consumes Fome 50,000 glass cyce annually. A good Ent'lith glass eyo will last about a vear and cosls£l. Glass eyes of French and German make are cheaper, but will sot stnnd wrar as long as tbe English. The greatest doBtroyer of tho glass eye is the salt in tbe tears; it* caustic action upon the glass has ud Io this timo baffled all human inventiou. Ho says Uiijt liwe aro some peoplo who wear ttvo glass eyes— but not in order to spo - at the Interviewer inadvertently asked— but to keep the lids in place and iu good condition and particularly in order to look more at tractive.
NATURALIST. TIGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 5 May 1905
JSrATUrtAL.IST; TIGKRS. To tbe average mind, lucre prrfent them selves but twu methods of pursuing and slnrinp the striped monarch of tho Eastern jungles— namely, the ordinary buttue by eloynants, on tbe most doughty and best tfuaed of which tho sp)rl«men mount, and ensconce themselves in thu traditional 'how dah,' Trhence, with comparative ease and security, they mark out and shoot down their gome; and the infinitely more perilous and exciting plan of tracking tbe cunning and ferocious 'animal to his lair, and facing him in open combat. Tho iormer is the most usually indulged in, even ladies taking part iu the chase ; tbe latter is only adopted by men wbo can thoroughly depend upon their nerves and accuracy of aim, and it often productive of those fatal accidents which strike us with hurror on their occur rence. But there are miny other and varied practices adopted to take or annihilate this destructive quadrupod, which nay be un known to our readers, and which, therefore, we shall...
RAILWAY TRAVELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 5 May 1905
RAILWAY TRAVELLERS. Anew system of lighting railway carriages by electricity has been adopted by the London, Tilbury, aud Southcnd Company, and was publiclv tented by an oxperimenta run from Fenchurcb-strwt to drays and back. Tbe novelty uf the plan consists in providing each carriage with a small dynamo, placed beneath it and worked directly by a belt passing over tlio axle. AVhen in motion the carriage supplies sufficient power to drive the dynamo und at the same timo to storo electric eLerjry io no accumulator ready to supply t-gU irheii the train is standing. Naturally it iwiid seem tbat at a rapid sperd a stronger r.nrrcr;t than waa needed might be produced, while the opposite result would follow wbeu the train was going slowly. Tbii difficulty has be°n overcome by an in genious arrangement which seenres a practi cally uniform velocity for thu dytamo at whatever rate the carriage may be drawn. The trial M'sj quite tuccertful. Every -»m- partment wai fitted with two glow lampa, ...
IS A DOG A 'PACKAGE' [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 5 May 1905
is a nna a ?packagt.p The Berlin courts bare just divided an interesting question relating to the status of dogs. A cabman baviou: demanded 2-5 pfennigs from onn of his ' faros,' who waa accompanied by bis dog. on thu ffround that mat was He customary unarms for a pacKago, the indignant ' fare ' naturally resented such an insult to bis compauiou, paid under pro teet, and bruugbt an action against the driver in the law courts. The first court took the cabby's view of the canine species, but the plaintiff carried the case to a higher tribunal. Again the decisiou went against him, and again bo appealed.

THE AUTOCAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 5 May 1905
THE AUT00AR. An autocar that has already-made the in credible record in speed of a mile in two tecocdt under the nilnate is announced— of oourte, from America. It goes by kerosene oil adroitly inserted in the houow tubes of tho machine, with a reservoir aomowhere close to the front wheel. The idea of conveying the oil through tbe tubes, and so utilising tbat vacant apace, is rather original and a cycle so constituted would bear some resemblance to tho human body, with tho blood that supplies its motivo power cour aing through veins and arteries instead of steel pipes. But has tbe ohronicler of this story realised what it wonld mean to tear through the air, with no protection against wind, at sixty miles an hour ulnu^r a road r We tremble also to think vliat wuulil happen if a stone were encountered, or the tyre gave way.

By last mail received from the Fiji Islsnds the Governor of French Oceania had sent one more expedition lo the Island, and suppressed J7 natives.
