SYDNEY ITEMS. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

The heavy rain which fell a few days ago has hampered training operations just when   they were beginning to get interesting.   Sequence is not forward enough to threaten   danger at the A.J.C. Spring meeting. Caravel is in great heart, and so is Warrior II., who has come on faster than was ex- pected, and with a couple of suburban races to sharpen him up he will be dangerous in the big handicaps. Old Blue Metal never looked better. Ibex has a splendid appear- ance, and if his legs stand the stiff winding- up gallops he must make a great show in the Epsom Handicap. R. Phillip's pair, Felici- tous and the Derby colt Abundance, are coming along nicely. Other horses well forward are Juindo, Abington, and Khaki. The Persian, after his victory at Warwick Farm was eased for a few days owing to a cold, but it was nothing serious. Purser is   much fancied for the Epsom, but has not been able to work for a few days owing to bruised heels. B...

BAKER'S HILL BRUTES. BARLEE ON THE BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

BAKER'S HILL BRUTES.   BARLEE ON THE BENCH.   Early in July a report reached Perth that the Kimberley family, who are noted for their brutality to their horses, had worked a draught horse in the shafts of a dray without giving the animal any food. The result was that on the 12th of July the poor brute fell down in the drain at the Baker's Hill station yard, where it was left lying.   After lying in the drain throughout the cold night, it was pulled out by some willing hands on the 13th, and then allowed to re-   main in a dying state until 11 a.m. on the 15th, when it was dispatched, as an act of kindness, by Mr. Ross, the manager of the vineyard adjoining the station. As a conse- quence of the horse being compelled to lie   only on one side for three days and nights on the hard stones, it had rubbed large sores on its side. It looked a horrible object, for, in addition to its appearance due to starvation, the sores ma...

SEA-SERPENT STREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

SEA-SERPENT STREAK. Our readers will remember the fuss that was made when Sir John Forrest opened that road at Claremont, when after a sort of Coronation festival and oratory fit for Athens, and champagne ad libitum, the Roads Board at Claremont felt delightfully elated at the benefits they had conferred not upon the citizens nor upon the travelling public, but among the elite property-holders of the district — all friends or relatives of the genial Jarrah Jack. The road is supposed to to find people an outlet to the sea and is called the Sea-road, but it is rather an inlet than an outlet, for whatever gets on it sinks in it. It is about six months since it was opened with all the local eclat chronicled at the time. But out of that six months it has been closed on and off for four months for repairs.  It was constructed, we are in-   formed, by a Subiaco contractor who has the merit of having   Learned His Trade after a fashiom in Gippsland, Victoria. He ha...

HOW TO IMPROVE THE FIGURE. HINTS TO OLD AND YOUNG LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

HOW TO IMPROVE THE FIGURE.   HINTS TO OLD AND YOUNG LADIES. No doubt the answer will be to go in for a course of physical exer-   cise, gymnastics, and so forth. Yes, but they cost money, and many   of us have none to spare for such   matters. In the "Ladies' Magazine" for May Margaret Heriot Hallam writes very delightfully on the subject, Walking Upstairs with the Hands   on the Hips will Improve Hips that are too slight.   telling how much can be done at home at no expense, and giving photographs of the exercises. She says:— Women will do for vanity what they will not do for health, and there is scarcely a society woman of to-day who   does no undergo long and expensive courses of massage and manicure, and, in addition, attends classes for physical development.   Bot the ordinary work-a-day woman Skipping Backwards is one of the Finest Exercises. either lives too far from town o...

THE WORLD'S LARGEST SHEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

THE WORLD'S LARGEST SHEERS. The sketch shows the new 100-ton sheers which have been erected at Portsmouth Dockyard for the purpose of lifting heavy machinery, guns, etc., aboard his Majesty's ships of war. These sheers are one of the most modern pieces of plant in the Royal dockyards, and are the biggest sheers in the world. Although not used for lifting more than 100 tons at a time, the structure is capable of safely tran- sporting a much greater weight. The sheers are of British construction, for in building these huge cranes Great Britain still leads. Owing to the   enormous weight of guns, armor, and other fittings carried in modern battleships lifting appliances of great power have to be constructed. The cost of these is heavy. These sheers, for in- stance, cost many thousands of pounds, for they are some 180ft. high, and built of steel. The ship lying beneath them is the armored cruiser Good Hope, presented to the navy by the Cape Government. She is to be com- mis...

A DINING TABLE WATER WHEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

A DINING TABLE WATER WHEEL. For the performance of this experi- ment we need a straw, a walnut, and two hazel nuts. Part of the broad end of the walnut is cut off and the contents removed. Near the pointed end two holes are bored of the diameter of the straw. In each of the two hazel nuts two holes are bored, as shown in illustration, and the contents of the nuts carefully removed with the help of a nut-picker. Both hazel nuts are connected with the walnut by two pieces of straw of even lengths (about 3in.), as shown in illustration. In the side holes of the hazel nuts two pieces   of straw 1in. in length are stuck. Placed the walnut with its pointed end on the cork of a bottle, whereby the whole system will be balanced. Pour a thin stream of water in the walnut. The water will run through the long pieces of straw and the hazel nuts, coming out of the two small pieces of straw. Hereby the whole apparatus will come to a turning motion, as the water exercises a pres- sure...

THE CROWN IN HISTORY AND THE ROYAL CROWNS OF ENGLAND. BY E. CURRIE AND ATHOL FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

THE CROWN IN HISTORY AND THE ROYAL CROWNS OF ENGLAND. BY CURRIE AND ATHOL FORBES           THERE must be marvellous fitness     in the outward symbols which ex-   press the nature and place of royalty, that in these days of boastful democracy   they should live on for love and honor. In divine right this nation, at least, no longer believes officially. The modern enthusiasm for the Crown and the dynasty is made less of devotion towards the institution and to heredi- tary right than of strong personal affection and admiration for the gifted woman who so long and so illustriously I. CROWN WORN BY WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR.     represented our ancient monorchy. But the Coronation has become less of a rite and more of a pageant—the decoration, not the conferring of royalty. The splendor is the thing, not the grace; and therefore there is adopted a le...

VALUABLES PICKED UP IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

VALUABLES PICKED UP IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS.   "Found, a bank note," is the pocket stirring legend which for a week figured upon the entrance to the House of Gommons from its inner lobby. To use a phrase from the betting ring, the note has, so far, found "no takers." During a session a good deal of money is picked np in the House. It is found with other valuables, almost everywhere, and frequently by other members. Cheque books, cheques for   large sums "to bearer," gold watches, diamond rings, shares in public com- panies, certificates for Consols, and   once a patent of nobility, may be men- tioned among the precious dere- licts of this wonderful Chamber. Unrecovered money goes to the ever-ready Chancellor of the Ex- chequer "for the reduction of the National Debt" Sometimes bank notes are found in the waste- paper baskets. Rich men go to the House of Commons benevolently inclined towards their constituents, and with a pocket-book full of ope...

FAIR WOMAN UPHELD HERE IS A WRITER WHO LIKES TO TELL THE TRUTH. Wife Bought Her Husband a Box of Cigars as a Birthday Gift. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

FAIR WOMAN UPHELD HERE IS A WRITER WHO LIKES TO TELL THE TRUTH. Wife Bought Her Husband a Box of Cigars as a Birthday Gift. There was a foxy sparkle in her eye   when her husband got home from the office the other afternoon. "John," she said, as she helped him off with his overcoat, "what date is to- day?" "Let's see," said he, in the tone of a man thinking about something else. "Why, it's November 7." "Um—yes," said she, gazing smil- ingly into his face. "Well?"   "Well?" "Can't you think of anything re-   markable that happened on November 7, such a long, long time ago?   He emerged from his thinking-of-   something-else trance then, and for   the first time her idea percolated   through his mind.   "November the 7th, such a long, long time ago, hey?" said he, reflect-   ively. "Why, sure enough, it's my birthday—I clean forgot all about it. And you call that such a...

IGNORANT ARMY OFFICERS SCATHING OFFICIAL REPORT. APPEAL FOR HONEST ADMINISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

IGNORANT ARMY OFFICERS SCATHING OFFICIAL REPORT. APPEAL FOR HONEST ADMINISTRA- TION. A "Blue Book" was issued recently containing the report of the committee on military education. The committee state that economy appears to have   been sought without regard to efficiency and that whereas the sum set apart for     technical military education has shown a decided tendency to shrink, that pro- vided for elementary education of a general character in the army schools has shown a tendency to increase, and   it is probable that more advantage     might be taken on the State-supported   elementary schools for providing edu- cational facilities for soldiers' children,   thus enabling larger sums to be spent   on technical military education with- out unduly inflating the Estimates. Ignorant Officers.   The committee are impressed by the widespread dissatisfactio...

W.A. IN THE SIXTIES. THE LASH ANO LEG-IRONS. WHY TRANSPORTATION CEASED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

W.A. IN THE SIXTIES. THE LASH ANO LEG-IRONS. WHY TRANSPORTATION CEASED. From 1861 the colony was kept well supplied with convicts. The closing of other doors to them, and the evident desire of local colonists to welcome them, warranted the de- spatch of as many shipments as were available. The ships arrived in the following order from 1861 to January 1868, when transportation ceased:— Date. | Ship. | Convicts February, 1861 | Palmerston | 296 January, 1862 | Lincelles | 306   June, 1862 | Norwood (1) | 390 January, 1883 | York | 300   February, 1863 | Merchantman (1) | 192 May, 1863 | Clyde | 320 December, 1863 | Dalhouse | 270 April, 1864 | Clara (2) | 301 September, 1864 | Merchantman (2) 260 August, 1865 | Racehorse | 280 December, 1865 | Vimeira | 280 July, 1866 | Belgravia | 277 December, 1866 | Corona | 306 July, 1867 | Norwood (2) | 254 January, 1868 | Hougoumont | 280 Total ... 4212 Previous arrivals ... 5509     &n...

MORALS IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

MORALS IN GERMANY. The Berlin Church Synod has again caused great sensation by openly dis- cussing the growing depravity of the Berlin youth of both sexes. It seems that although churches are being mul- tiplied in the capital, the church is fast losing its influence on the people, and especially on the rising generation —a fact which the delegates at the synod prefer to ascribe primarily to extraneous influences. The Socialists are blamed for educating their children to disdain authority and piety, and mothers are taken to task for being in- different to the dangers run by their daughters. The Roman Catholic clergy are described as keeping   a very sharp look-out on children   of mixed marriages. The universal practice is condemned of parents keep- ing their children out late at night in restaurants. Finally, the startling statement is made that one marriage out of every twelve contracted in Berlin is followed by divorce. The synod ultimately passed a serie...
