FIGHTING AT BANQUETS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
FIGHTING AT BANQUETS. In Anslo-Sixon times when fightiag at banquete was as common as drinking, it wat customary for the one who rose to drink from the great cup, which passed from hand to hand, to ask someone to be come his pledge, that he should not be stabhed while both hands were raised. The 'pledge' rose, often with sword drawn, and «tood by the side of the drinker to protect h»ta from treachery. ' Willir : ' Are yon the nearest relative I've got, mamma P' ilotfj-r ?.

Nettie was ready to babble on like the brook that goes on for ever, bat the ready flow of her ohatter was somewhat chocked by the entire unresponeiveness of her listeners.

Personalities. THE ONLY JEW IN THE PORTUGUESE ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
Personalities -♦ — THE ONLY JEW IN THE POSrU GUESE AB.MY. jflfT^N incident forcibly illustrating the JjjVIa intense antipathy to Jews is re Jfflc Port^ in the Portuguese array, the ranks of whioh only include a eingle Jew, named Athias. So long as lie remained in cne rancs tms man escaped notice, but some few months ago he had the ill luck to be reoommended for a commission. The whole body of officers at once petitioned against the presence of a Jew, and ever since have made Athias's life so miserable that he himself has had to take tha initiative in obtaining permission to remain in the non-crmmiseioned grade, to be transferred to another corps. The curions rarity of Jews in the Portuguese army is attributed to the eabatitute system, of which Jews wholly avail themselves.
Sketcher. FISHING ON THE GRAND BANKS [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 29 August 1902
SMcher, PISHING ON THE GEAND BANKS if-ifSJHE dorio3 radiate from the schooner jj.j'jlb like spokes from the hub of a Sai5 wheel. The fishing gear consists of trawls — ropes several hundred feet long, to which, at intervals of a yard, hooks are attached by smaller Hues about two feet long. The trawl is submerged by anchors almost to the bottom, and there buoyed, the hooks having been pre viously baited with the smaller fishes which the greedy cod or voracious hali but, nuzzling for food in the sandy bottoms, will promptly bolt. The trawls aie set in the afternoon and remain un disturbed all night. Once begun, the toil is incessant, and when the fishing is good the men rarely ever sleep. Awakened at 2 a.m. to fill their bait 'kits' or tubs, they start at daybreak to lift, these trawls and remove the over-night catch, rebaitiag hooks again. There are about 3,000 hooka to handle, and this often occupies until eventide, wh^n the boats row back. After unloading, the deck is plied high wit...
Science [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 5 September 1902
Science, BY LIGHT OF SUN. jjliv MACHTNE has been recently ajMa) built which has had some success in haraesBing the rays of the sun and making them work a steam engine. A huge 'sun motor' has been built which puDipB up water for irriga tion purposes. Tho sun motor looks like an inverted umbrella, consisting of a reflector 33 ft. Gin. across the top, lined with rowB of small mirrors. These re flect the Bunlieht. concentrating it upon a small boiler in the centre, in which steam is generated. This, after all, is only a modification of the huge Bun motor built by Ericeson and set up many years ago, the boiler in that case being a long tube running longi tudinally with the mirror. Whether the heat from the Bun can compete with the heat from coal, from an economical stand point, is, however, doubtful. Ou a cloudy day the sun motor would have to go out of business altogether.
