A WONDERFUL WOUND. A young quarryman, about 20 year« of age, had been tamping the powder in a quarry hole preparatory to a blast, when a premature explosion took place, ejecting the crowbar used for the - tamping to a great height. On its descent it struck: the man on the top of = . the head, penetrating the skull, passing downwards through the brain, and ceming out of the bead afc the angle of the lower jawi Under the circumstances tbe-doetor, who was soon in attendance, decided , that the man's wounds were fatal, and that recovery was an impossibility.-So The Pierced BSstíSL the man wa« taken into the house had laid on a bed, after receiving a ba<-tf bath by sympathetic neighbors of his family.

A SIMPLE WRENCH OF NOVEL FORM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 August 1902

A SIMPLE WREKCH FORM. OF m\ The subject of the illustration is an ingenious wrench, in which the jaws san be quickly adjusted and locked ?rith the use of but one hand. The inventor <?f the wrench is Phineas R. Coleman, of 164 William-street, Newark, N.J. The wrench consiste primarily of throe parts-two jaws pivoted together at their ends, and a transverse adjusting and locking mern ber. Tbs jaws, it urül be observed, aie formed with divergent slot«, re- ceiving tongues on the upper and lower plates of which the locking-bar is composed. The plates are connected and made closely to hog the slotted jaws by means of a set-screw. When the set-screw is loosened and the ad- justing member is drawn inwardly or outwardly, the jaws are respectively drawn together or forced apart to receive the nut or other object which is to be turned. After adjustment the jaws can be rigidly locked in place by means of the set screw. Simplicity of design, cheapness of manufacture, ; and durability...

TESTINC PRECIOUS STONES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 August 1902

TESTINC PRECIOUS STOHESj The United States Consul-General I at Frankfort, in his last report, calls attention to a lecture on precious stones, recently delivered before the Industrial Association of Berlin by Tir, Immanuel Friedlaender, ia which it was stated that, the testing of día monas is -comparatively simple. The common test for hardness suffices. If the stone resists strong attacks it is certain to be genuine ; if it does not, the damage is insignificant* as only an imitation bas been destroyed. The test, however, is doubtful with rubies. ! If a ruby can be affected by a steel file or by quartz it is not genuine, but such a test with a topaz is likely to in- jure a valuable stone. The test for hardness is of No Avail with Emerald«, as the stones are not much harder than quartz, and in addition possess the quality of cracking easily. For exa- mining rubies and emeralds the optical test is the best. A glass magnifying one hurdred times suffices. Almost all precious-stones have,...

HINTS ON THE HORSE. BY PROFESSOR M'GILLIVRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 August 1902

HINTS ON THE HORSE. BY PROFSSOR M'GILLIVRAY.     Never think your horse cannot jump, be- cause any horse can be taught to jump. Bever say "whoa* to a horse unless he is moving and you want him to stop. Never think when a colt is first yarded     that he knows anything but fear. Never forgot that a horse has five senses   the same as human beings, viz., smelling, tasting, seeing, hearing and feeling.     When educating the horse do not forget to educate each and every one of his senses separately. Never think that mares can be thoroughly     depended upon, for they cannot, although they can be made very useful both in saddle and harness. Never think your horse is too old to learn, because he is' never too old to learn anything, nor a man either. When you are approaching a horse if he does not see you let him know you are coming by saying "I am coming, Bob, Tom or Bess,...
