STRAY NOTES. HOSPITAL SURGEONS. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 10 April 1889
STRAY NOTES. -? Iíi. HOSPITAL SURGEONS. . ;.; YESÏM&DAY I made some reference :tp the action of the-hospital committee in re- questing three applicants for the position of house surgeon to forward their j respective photographs. Although, pre- sumably, this request reached them about a fortnight agOj"-I* learn on'pretty good authority that not one photograph has yet. been received ; in fact,-they have BO far not taken the trouble to forward repliefl. Thia will not surprise the many who are not possessed of the idionsyncraäy which apparently prevails in the committee ; and the latter jffill only have to thank them- selves if through their extraordinary and ridiculous request they lose the services of an excellent man.

The Cornwell Smelter. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 10 April 1889
The Cornwell Smelter. . TH^ sudden-j stoppage of the Cornwell smelter which, has been erected by private enterprise on the South mine is by no means serious enough to war- rant any fall in the price of Barrier stocks. It will doubtless be a serious disappointment to the proprietors of tho furnace ; .but beyonds that'and the necessary supension of operations for a few days, there is nothing at all.note- worthy in the, occurrence. A's was very natural, those in charge attempted to show\tbe vast ; superiority, of \the,^ap- pliance, the more so since not a few derisive epithets have been bestowed upon the apparently frail structure. And it is more than, possible; that. ;they too soon pfter the furnace was blown in endeavored to do too much. There is a limit to the capabilities of all things; and the mistake which has been made in this instance' would seem to be that that limit was not clearly defined to those in charge. It is: customary for all"machinery to^'be allowed atrial of a few d...
