" Melbourne Letters :o: [?y OUR OWN CORRESPONDOSERT. TeE annual report of Mp. David Yilson, the Government dairy expert, on the dairying industry of Yictoria, has just been published. Without doubt it is the most important document that has ever been issued by the Iepartment of 4gri culture.

A Prince's Marriage and Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
A Prince's Marriage and Wealth, .It is probable that only the Queen and the Dowager Duchesses of Buccleugh and Aber. corn can thoroughly recollect all the circum stances attending the marriage of the late Prince Nicholas Esterhary and Lady Sarah Villiers in 1842. The Prince's father had been for a great number of years the Austrian Ambassador in London, and for some time he rented Chandos House from the Duke of Buckingham. Prince Esterhazy was famous for his jewelled uniform, which he were on all State occasions, and which was adorned with diamonds valued at L100,000. lie had a considerable quickness in conversaaion, and when a well known peer boasted of his flock of 4000 sheep the Prince retorted: "And I, my lord, have 4000 shepherds." Princess Eaterhazy was a heauty and as great a favorite of George IV. asthe Princess Lieven. The Prince and Princess did not approve of the engagement of their son to Lady Sarah Villiers, as not only was she a !Protestant, but there was what the nart...
Widow and Widower. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
Widow and Widower. The lady wae a widow, and rich-very rich as the French novelist says, richissime. The gentleman was a widcwer; past sixty; extremely, even ridiculously, poor; and the las of a most noble and most historical House. History is fallof the achievements othis people. Froiseart mentions their exploits in every other page; they were always taking this side or the other, for the King and against the King. When they tbok a side they meant it; cut they marched, they and theirs, in foil armour. Whicheverside they took, it always ended in theirbeing captured and decapitated for high treason, orelse killedin battle. From father to son, from generation to genera tion, for long centuries, none of them ever went out of the world from an inglorious feather bed; it was always from the grassy field of honor or from a scaffold. A grey beard was unknown in that house, nor had any of them ever experienced the tender emotions of a grandfather. The lady, besides being a widow and richis....
Athens in Darkness. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
Athens in Darkness, What fate is this that has overtaken the city that Byron loved! Athens has seen some of the most marvellous changes of fortune that the world has known; Athens, famed alike in war,in statescraft, in poetry and in prose; Athens, the somEwhile mother of freedom and the home of tyranny; Athens, the classic,. the beautitul, the great, the degenerate. It is now Athens the dark. A pesky French company has suoplied the city with gas. For the miserably sordid reason that its blessed bill is not paid, the supply has been cut off, and the city plunged into gloom. Was there ever such meanness? N'ow had we the imagination of a certain mcrning contemporary, out of the dark ness of Athens would we make to rise a brand new warclond. Presently we should have movements of troops on thefrontiers, and all manner of goings-on indicative of the determination of Athens to get into the light again or die in the attempt. But, alas for our stunted imagination, really we can see nothing i...

EKpansive Forces of the Chief Explosives. The power of the various explosives now in use has been calculated to be equivalent to the following pressures, the figures giving tons per sauare inch :--Emmensite, a new explosive, for which important advantages are claimed in addition to its great destructive power.

Blating gunpowder is a long way behind the most destructive, having a force of only 23 tons to the square inch.
Why Does Water Simmer Before it Boils? [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
Why Does Water Simmer Before it Boils ? The heat being applied to the bottom of the vessel, the lowest layer of the water becomes hot first, and after a time some of it is converted into steam, forming a bubble, which rises into the upper part of the liquid. This upper part is still below the boiling point, and so the bubble collapses with a sharp, rattling noise called aemmering. When, however, the upper part has become sufficiently hot, the bubbles do not collapse, but escape at the surface. The water is then in the state called boiling.

A Lion—Tamer Mangled. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
A Lion-Tamer Mangled. A terrible affair occurred on 13th February, at the wild animal show at the Midwinter Exhibition in 'Frisco. A lion tamer named Carl Thieman was going through his.performanco in the lions' cage, when the electric lights suddenly went out. Three of the lions immediately sprang upon Thieman, who was fearfully margled. He was rescued alve by the proprietor of the show, a man named Boone, who, as soon as the lights were restored, entered the cage with an iron bar, and drove the animals off from their prey. But meanwhile Thieman had received no less than forty-three wounds, which, it is feared, will prove fatal. The audience were terror-stricken by the oc curronce.
MODERN BILLIARDS. EXPONENTS OF THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
MODERN BILLIARDS. EXPONENTS Or TIIE GAME. Some of my readers may ask why I should call this article "Modiern" billiards, when the game has been known- for, many past generations. Bnt without going into the history of billiards, it is found that the game, as it is nowplayed, compared with the billiards of our forefathers 'f the last century, resembles a comparison of one of our present naval leviathans with the ancient Nosh's Ark. PSITION 01' TIlE HAbN SIIHWIN TIM BnwoE. Billiards, if not a science, is at any rate a scientific game; for unless a man has a certain gift for it, ill the prctice and all the study in the world will never make him an expert ; while, on the other hand, hoawever great may be his natural gifts, it is absolutely indispeneable that he studies the game. Some persons look upon billiards with great disgust; but I fail to see why this should be, beyond the fact that it is generally at the Club or Hotel where the game is played-for it is only the favored few that oa...

Viticulture in Napa Country Californias o- The cultivation of the vine in thisState was commenced by the Mission Fathers nearly a century ego, with a simple variety. "ie history of its origin is not known further than that it is identical with the Pica vine which was imported from Chili some few years ago. It is one of the oldest varieties in culti. vation there, and is the brandy grape of that country, as the Mission grape has become of this. It is a vigorous grower and a good hearer, containilng a highper cent. of sugar and a small degree of acid, and is well adapted for Sherry, Madeira and Angeli;a wines and for brandy. The laeissligh, White rineou anI Chasselas stand at the head of the list for dry, white wiones on account of their light ness, fineness and dellcacy of flavor. hack Burgundy, Zinfaudel and Charle. meau are our beet varieties for claret.

POPULAR SCIENCE. Some Cold Weather Rules. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE. Some Cold Weather Rules. Never lean with your back upon anything that is cold. Never be3in a journey until breakfast has been eaten. Never take warm drinks and then imme* diately go out into the cold. Keep the back, especially between the shoulder-blades, well covered; also the chest well protected. In sleeping in a coldroom, establish a habit of breathing through thenose, and never with the month open. Never go to bed with cold or damp feet. Never emit regular bathing; for, unless the skin is in active condition, the cold will close the pores and favor congestion and other diseases. After exercise of any kind, never ride in an open carriage or near the window of a car for a moment; it is dangerous to health or even life. When hoarse, speak as little as possible until the hoarseness is recovered from, elsethe voice may be permanently loot, or difliculties of the throat be produced. Merely warm the back by the fire, and never continue keeping the back exposed to the ...
Story of Mr Gladstone [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
Story of Mr Gladstone A correspondent sends to "St James's Budget "this story of Mr Gladstone :-Some twelve years ago, in the late autumn, Mr Gladstone paid a fleeting and unofficial visit to the Isle of Man. He was accompanied by the Rev. Stephen Gladatont, and they spent a couple of days at Port Erin, the romantin little bay at the south west of the island. Its surroundings were primitive enough at that time, yet ft could boast a very comfortable hotel, at which the two gentlemen stayed. Here they were joined on the latter of the evenings by the Governor of the island and the "Deemster" (Chief Justioce), who passed the night ander the same rot. The united party breakfasted early the next morning, the Governor and Deemster having toleave by the 9 o'clock train foroffioial duties, andMrGladstone walked to the station with them-not a furlong's distance-for a final handshake. Meanwhile Mr Stephen was doing a little exploration on his own account, and the native waitress, seeing the br...
TELEGRAPHING WITHOUT WIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
TELEGRAPHING WITHOUT WIRES, A cablegram a .few weeks ago in timated that an eminent electrical engineer had discovered a method of telegraphing without wires, which was capable of aemo remarkable developments. From the "Daily Chronicle" we extract the following on the subject : From time to time we have heard strange rumors of the experiments being carried out by Mr Preece, the eminent electrical engineer associated with her Majesty's P'os Office, with a view to transmitting electrical signals through space without the in tervention of wifts or indeed metal lie conductors of any kind what ever. Mr Preece told the Electrical Con. gress at Chicago last year something of his failures and successes, but the address which he gave at the Society of Arts recently may be taken to sum up the latest progress in this peculiar development of electrical science. The quickest way to arrive at a conception of the theory which is now being rapidly worked out is to consider for the moment that elect...
