A considerable amount of well-deserved1 sympathy was expressed for the owner when' it became known that the Hereward bad become n total wreck a few hours after being successfully floated. Great sympathy was also expressed with Miss Ada Richards, of Karabar street. North Auburn, near Sydney, during her long illness.

The Office Boy's Joke. In tho counting-houso of a city office, usually closed at six o'clock, tho office boy — not a new one, eithor — has boon known, like others of that fraternity, to occasionally forgot to do those things which lio ought to havo done, and the manager has at last had to impress upon him tho advisability of making a nolo of anything important on a memo, form, and keeping it in a conspicuous place as a reminder. The other day a piece of paper was noticed pinned to the wall in front of the lad's desk, and, upon examination, was found to bear the following : ' Memorandum. Leave at six.

Speaking Clocks. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 20 January 1899
Speaking Clocks. In Switzerland they have commenced making phonographic clocks and watches which, it appears, leave anything here tofore accomplished far in the shade. By merely pressing the button of the new timepiece it pronounces the hour dis tinctly. Tho alarms call to tho slcoper, ' It's six o'clock ; got up.' There are some wmcn even add tne words, ' JN ow, don't go to sleep again.' Tho form can bo changed to suit. tho buyer, and make ihe warning more or less emphatic. This application of the phonographic principle is due to a French watchmaker settled at Geneva. He introduces into clocks and watches little slabs of vulcanized rubber, on which the desired words are traced in grooves corresponding to the hourB and fractions of hours.
The Evils of Mouth-Breathing. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 20 January 1899
Tho Evils nf Mouth-Breathing. The subject or mouth breathing has never received the attention that its great importance deserves. Mouth breathing iB not always a habit ; it may be oaused by some malformation or foreign growth in the nose or in the nasopharynx. Parents are most culpable and cruel to allow their children to grow up exposed to all the evils of mouth breathing when an operation of the simplest kind will often correct the trouble, which otherwise may lead to loss of hearing, deformaties of face and chest and other inconveniences. Nature' intended the nose as a-preparatory com partment to respiration. Inspired air is free from dust and germs, receives its - proper amount of moisture, and is raised or lowered to the proper temperature by passing through the nose. If there is any obstruction in the nasal cavities the musoles of the growing child become distorted by constantly keeping the mouth open day and night. The action of theBe distorted muscles upon : the soft and yie...
The Loudest Noise Ever Heard. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 20 January 1899
The Loudest Noise Ever Heard. The loudest noise ever heard was that which issued from the throat of the great volcano in Krakatoa, an islet lying in the Straits of Sunda, between Sumatra and Java, at ten o'clock on Monday morning, August 27th, 1883. As that dreadful night wore on, the noises increased in intensity ana frequency. The explosions succeeded each other so' rapidly that a continuous roar Beemed to issue from the island. The critical ; moment was now approaching, and the i people of Batavia did not sleep that 1 night. Their windows quivered with the thunders from Krakatoa, which re sounded like the discharge of artillery in their streets. Finally, at ten o'clock on Monday morning, a stupendous convulsion took place which far transcended any of the shocks which had preceded it. This huge effort it was which raised the mightiest noise ever heard on this globe. Batavia ib ninety-four miles distant from Krakatoa. At Garimon, Java, 355 miles away, reports were heard on that Sun...
What Our Governors are Paid. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 20 January 1899
What Our Governors are Paid. The Viceroyalty of India, which has just' fallen to the lot of tho Right Hon. George Ourzon, is the most valuable appointment in the gift of the Grown. The salary is £25,000 a year (Rs. 20,833 per monsum), with £12,000 as allow ance. Uut as this sum is paid in rupous the real value fluctuates with the price of silver, so that it is probably little, if any, butter than the £20,000 a year which tho Lord Lieutenant of Ireland receives. Of our other colonies Oanada is the most lucrative. Tho Govornor-General of tho Dominion receives £10,000 a year, and the High Commissioner of Oape Oolony gets £2,000 a year Iosb. The Governors of Now South Walos and Victoria receive £7,000 por annum, and of South and West Australia £4,000. But hia Excellency of Jamaica goes two better with £6,000, and tho GovornorB of Queensland and New Zoaland both get £5,000. Tho lowest salary paid to any uncrowned King in British employ ment is the £500 a year which the Governor of St. He...

A Miraculous Stone Which Cures. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 20 January 1899
A Miraculous Stone Which Curos. There is a wonderful stono known as the ' Madstone,' which lma performed moat miraculous cures for over seventy five years. It belongs to the daughter of a minister in Memphis, whose father had received it as a gift from an old German woman in his parish. Only twice has it ever been known to fail in its mission of 'healing, and in both cases the persons treated did not allow it to be used sufficiently. People come from all parts to be healed by it, and no oharge is ever made by its owner. Hydrophobia has been cured many limes by its application, and oven mad dogs have been subject to its mystio powers with effect. It is put beforo use in hot water, and then placed on the wound as hotly as it can be endured, and this is done every hour for twelve hours. The atono is porous, and looks like coral. A. horse can draw on the worst kind of oarth road about four times as much as he can carry on his back. On a good macadamised road he can pull ten times as muo...

'Has there been u break-down on the road, I wonder, or has some forlorn maiden, detecting signs , of bachelorhood, carried him off by force? Mother, is it true that he has remained a bachelor all his life for love of you ?' ' I really cant't tell you, Lee. He says' so now, as you know ; but I never heard of it in my youth. He used to be a great deal at our house, and was excessively fond of your poor uncle Philip. I think it is more for his sake than mine that he comes here so very often.'
