SCIENTIFIC NOTFS. A x.TruRAi, B.TTEiH .--It 'has long been knowin that if two plates .:of different metals are buried in the ground and connected by a wire above the snurface, an earth battery is formed and 'a current' of electricit'v is found in the- wire. : A' 'curious :iatudral'in stance of the kind recently occured at Bridgewater, in Nova Scotia, whence a telephone line was run to a gold mniing district some thirty miles distant. A steady currenit was found to flow through the wire; and the ex planation is that the mindim l lodes in the neighborhood gave rise to it. There are gold, silver, copper, lead, and iron ores there, and it is supposed that the gold, silver, copper and lead, formed' the: negative part , of, the battery, whilst the iron formed the iositive, the moist, earth and rock completing the circuit with ,the wire.

TRUE GENTLEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 11 October 1890

I TRUE: GENTLE?MAN. True, courtesy is "the beauty of the heart." I-ow well it is that no one class has a monopoly' in this kind of beauty; that while favorable circumih stances undoubtedly do render good manners more common among persons moving in higher, rather than in lower sIpiheres, there should nevertheless be iio Iositive hindrance to the poorest classes having good inmanners.

The poor boy was astonished. He looked at her for a moment in surprise, and then, taking off about three-quarters of a cap, he made a low bow and said, while a broad, p...

The clause provided for the abolition of all' tolls except on ferries and floating bridges which requires the attention of some person is one which will be hailed with delight by all portions of the com mmunity.
