USES OF THE TELEGRAPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
USES OP THE TELEGRAPHONE. The employment of tbe tolegraphone is of conrse a question of tho future, which cannot be answered with certainty before tl*e instrument has left the laboratory and has worked in practice. Some applica tions however, are so evident that their practical realization is very probable. Thus tbe telpgraphone may be employed as a phonograph for the reproduction of abort or 1 ng epEeoheF, songs, musical pieces; etc. ; it may be connected to a telephone instrument for the purpose of giving or receiving information in the absence of the owner ; aB a ' telephone newspaper ' it may bs employed for giving tho same information to peveral sub Bcribars simultaneously ; enable them, in tbeir bomeB, to follow concerts or thiatrical performances, receive the latest uewB from telegram agencies, etc. The principle of the telegraphone is at variance with the hitherto accepted view of t' e behaviour of magnetism in the magnetic metals.

Ways of Living A TWENTIETH-CENTURY CHAPERON. SKKOW the life of a chaper n is at no hKA'IP time a bed of roses, even when 'JikjIl ^er ^'^i68 devolvo naturaUy upon her through the launching of a daughter ia eooiety. But it is not of thcee natural and legitimate chaperona that this article treats, but of that curicui outcsme of modern life the professional ehapsron, who is, be it well understood, as dittinct from the ' sheep-dog,' scoffingly alluded to by Becky Sharp,' as the ' mountebank ' of the early Victorian era is f fin the fashionable actor of to-day. One of the primary necessities for the woman who wishes not only to cover her expenses during an expensive London ec&eoD, but til-o to leave a small margin of prolit, its a good social position ; but tbe advantages of this are almost useless without a good appearance and, above all things, popularity. Perhaps it may for a moment appear to be unnecessary that a chaperon should be popular, but aB one of the most paying duties...

Yarieiies. ELECTEIC POWEE HOUSES. MLECTRLC power houses containing several steam engines, each of which has a capacity of from 6,000 to 10,000 horse-power, will soon cease to be a novelty.

THREE-HORNED GIRAFFE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
THEEE-HOENED GIRA.FFE. Old as is the saying that there is nothing new under the sun, it does not hold good to remote East Africa, bir Harry Johnson, the special commissioner of the Unganda country, has just re turned to London, and has brought with him numbers of new animals never before known to exist. One of tbe remarkable creatures dis covered is a three-horned giraffe. Aside from the extra horn, this type of giraffe differs from tho ordinary by having greater height and a difference in colour ing; large black spots, instead of tbe customary brown and chestnut, adorn the skin. A herd of these creatures was come upon by Sir Harry's caravan. He reports them to be extremely tame, and on account of their additional horn and un usual peculiarities the game regulations of the country were .broken and Beveral were killrcL A male and a female Bpociuien have been presented to tbe London Zoological Society and the British Museum.

J3fP?T the season when woollen articles EjMli) and furs are put away for a sum j£jj£ mar's rest a few words on how to circumvent the mischievous moth, whose appetite is so mnch larger than itself, may not be oat of place. Many people don't know the moth miller when they see it, bat mistake other and mote harmless moths for it. Th« true moth miller is one of the smallest of the family; its body is but little longer than the Bpread of one fully expanded mug — only little more in length - than the diameter of a lead pencil. It. remains in seclusion during ths day ac£ flies about in the evening. _J^U ,.-49?^6 '*Ifr..^£USl3--w e-gs it dies. The tiny eggs hatch in about two weeks. The young larvae hatoh and at once begin their mischief. The larvae are torpid during' the winter, and in lata winter change into a crysalis, from which emerges a winged moth. The cycle of moth existence is thus complete. It is easy to sse that if we prevent the moth from laying its eggs ...

MILLINERY NOTIONS. The smartest fad in connection with ? millinery is to line the brims of hats and .' toques with whifc or coloured tulle, som 1 tirnes two colours being mixed. Butter cups, small roses and hydrangeas are also pressed into the service of linings.

Plainly, it was the waves she was speak ing to. They were washing up to and over a firm strip of sand, and did look very inviting this hot summer day.

TWO SMART COATS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
TWO SMAET COATS. I have already in theie columns alluded to the modiBh little coats of black glace that are important features 0! the season's fashions, and this week I am supplement ing previous remarks by giving a couple of sketches denoting in the one casua black glace Eton coat, and in the other a pouched or blouse coat of glaoe.- These two coats, differing: in style, may be taken as typical modes of the moment, and are most useful asd dressy little garments. The Eton coat is of plain glace, stitched all round with a band and tabs of its own material, and finished with a handsome collar of guipure lace studded with jet cabochcBB -here aud there. The bow, which furnishes a pretty ornament to the front of the Eton, and beneath whioh the coat is fastened with a hook and eye, might be of black or cream coloured chiffon, or of pale bine, the end of the scarf having gUt tags. The second coat - 5b tucked aU over in a diagonal direction, the tucks giving much firmness to the material an...
VERNET. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
VEENET. There is a 'little Willie story about Joseph Vernet, the greatest landscape and marine painter of his day, now lost amid the dust of oblivion alone with E P. Roe and Martin Farquhar Tnpper. The story told by his wiggling, jiggling biographer, is tbis : Vernet was crossing the bay mm Leghorn to France id a small packet schooner, when a terrible storm arose. The winds howled through the creaking cordage, the wild waves leaped mountain-high and threatened to engulf the ship with her precious crew. The lightnings glared — the thunder roared. Each moment the ravenous waves leaped higher still, and came chas ing each other like charging cavalry across the green waste of troubled waters. Tho captain had given up all hope, and bid the passengers to prepare for the worst. All were sure that every moment wonld be their last Finally the captain, looking out abaft the mizzen, saw Joseph Vernet, lashed to the mast, with brush and palette in hand, calmly painting the storm— rapt in contem...
THE KING OF DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
TBE KING OF DENMARK. King Christian of Denmark, the father of Queen Alexandra, is in the habit of taking morning walks in Copenhagen entirely unattended by military aioorts, detectives, and the usual encumbrances of crowned heads in other European countries. He was recently accosted with great reEDect bv a beuear who recognised Mb Majesty, and expressed a great d«aire to receive the King's image from hia ewn venerable hand. Astonished and gratified, King Chris tian graoionely presented the man with a dainty little medal which he happened ta possess. Then the beggar looked surprises, and blandly suggested that the Boyal image came out with a more life-like clearness on the coinage of the realm. The King laughingly handed over a two-crown piece.
