Ocean Fliers. STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 21 August 1914
Ocean Fliers. STORY OF TUB CHINA CLIPPERS Jn the "Times" Literary Supple ment is an extremely interesting ar ticle reviewing Mr. Basil Lubbock's book on "The. China Clippers." It is no accident (says the writer of tlie review) that the ocean clipper owed its very origin to tho compe tition for fortunes in the illicit opium trade to Chinn, in the thir ties and forties ot Inst century ? a business which was nothing less than the armed olid piratical smug e'ing of a noxious drug into a country whose rulers forbade, but were too weak to resist, its intro duction. The coolio traffic, too was a disreputable business. It is only when we come to tho gold rush to 'Frisco and the clean trade of the fifties and sixties tnat.fascination at the brilliant qualities and nehievements of the clipper overcomes disgust at the' iniquities associated with the name. Then indeed tho story bccomes en ra ing. At first tho Americans were supreme, their designers, 'Hall, tvebb, and the famous Donald Mae koy, ...

"And your arms, I guess you would n't take 10,000 dol. for them, would you?" "No, sir." "And your voice. They tell me you sing quite well, and I know you talk a little bit. You wouldn't part with that for 10,000 dol., would you?" "No, sir." "Your hearing and your sense of taste are better than 50,000 at the very least; don't you think so?" "Yes, »ir." "Your eyes, now.

L. S. D. OF AVIATION. I '« The day when tho well-to-do City man will use an neroplnno on his daily journeys between his home and his oflice, and £150 will purchase an efficient machine, is foreshadowed by Mr. Gustav Uamel and Mr. Charles C. Turner in their inter esting: book, "Flying-Sams Practi cal Experiences." Even now flying is not prohibi tively expensive, apart from tho original expeifce of £400 to £1,500 for the acroplano itself. Tho cost of flying, according to the authors, is made up of the "capital expen diture upon the machine, the cost or rental of a shod, repairs and roncwnl of parts, fuel, and tho wages of one or more mechanics. The price of a machine may be any thing from £400 to £1,500. Tak ing the engine most generally in use at the time of writing-name ly, the Gnome-tho aviator may buy a fcingle'Bcater machine with a 50 horse-power motor for about £700, or a two-seater machine with an SO-horsc-power motor for £1,000.

VERY SMALL. On one of the American railways, in a sleeping-car, one night after everybody had turned in, and tho lights were low, a loud voice called from one of the berths : "Porter, have you got a cork screw ?" The porter came hurrying up. "Boss," lie said, in a scandalised tone, "we don't allow no drinking in the berths ; it's against the rules. "Oh, it ain't that, porter," the voice answered, "I just want to dig out u pillow that's sort of worked into my ear." Many a mail has more religion in him than he is ready to admit.
