A New Wonder. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

A Kew Wrader. I A. l)alziel telegram from Ajaccio, dated i&thMaxch,sa^ i-" A grottohas been dis covered here which is said to exceed any ever known for magnificence and size. The site is a little over a mile bom the Ponte- ; Seccia Railway station. The grotto is en tered Trith difficulty owing to the small-' nesS of the aperture, but upon his «. trance the explorer finds himself inside a large and lofty hall, the sides of which are some twenty-five yards in height. From this there are several passages leading to an indefinite number of other chambers. A thorough investigation of the grotto has not been made. Tourists have attempted to explore its depths, but after six or eight hours' search have returned to the open air with their task uncompleted, but full of marvellous descriptions of the fairy-like beauty of the grotto, On one occasion a workman undertook to penetrate throughout the whole extent of the grotto. He was sup plied with provisions and torches of resinous wood....

Debtors and Creditors in China. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Debtors and Creditors iu China. A writer in the North China Herald of Shanghai, lately took for his theme the peculiar Cbiaere practice of settling debts just before New Year's Day, which has often been praised by "Western observers, bnt which he does not applaud so much. The custom has, he says, its roots in three causes-first -that everybody owes something; secondly, that a great necessity exists^ for short settlements ; and thirdly, that no one will pay a debt until he. is forced to do so. Tyrannical custom compels most people to live beyond their means. Marriages and funerals are the ruin of the people.' The farming classes are in perpetual difficulties, while the small traders work on such a narrow margin that frequent 1 accommoda tion' is essential. On the other hand, the balances in the hands of creditors are so small that no one can afford to leave his money out of call for more than a few months. In ninety-nine cases out of «' hun dred the creditor is compelled to * call ag...

The collector of the port came on board, and although the captain stated that he was freighted for Canton, and had nothing to do with Tunis, the col lector succeeded in proving to him that he must pay his harbour dues.

Diamond Cut Diamond. ALL IS NOT GREEN THAT LOOKS SO, AND IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Diamond Cut Diamond. AFX IS XOT GrREEN THAT LOOKS So, AJSTD IT'S JTETEE TOO LATE TO LEARHT. A rather green-lo akin g young fellow saun tered into a bat-room up town the other evening and looked around the walls and up at the ceiling and at the ornaments behind the bar in a way that betokened a stranger seeing the sights of the metropolis. He sat down atone of the little tables and ordered a drink, which he sipped in a lonely way. A keen-eyed, quietly-dressed elderly man had followed the stranger in, and now he sat down at the other aide of the same table. Hie, too, ordered a drink, but seemed to take no notice whatever of his neighbor. As he eat down his glass, however, he awkwardly knocked it over and a little of the dregs of the liquor it had contained ran across the table. Hastily apologising, the awkward man called the waiter to wipe off the table, and at the same time he expressed a hope that the accident had not annoyed anybody. This remark he addressed so pointedly to the man...

Lived Together and Died Together. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Lii ed Together and Died Together. Floating on the Seine near Clicliy have been found, tightly bound together, the corpses of an old couple who had been living for many years in a house at the Ternes end] of the long Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore. The man had been a com mercial traveller in his better days, and was upwards of 80 years of age when he per suaded his companion, Madame de Fischer who is said to have belonged to a wealthy Russian family, possessing large estates in the Caucasus-to die with him, as they were in a condition of the utmost destitution. Madame de Fischer, nee Markoff, is described as the widow of a personage who held the title of marshal of the nobility, and who expired about twenty years ago. She was 62, and she took up her residence here shortly after the death of her husband. Madame de Fischer seems to have lost the whole of her fortune - in speculations, and after 1875-in which year she became totally blind-her friends made a small allowance, which would h...

All Insane Bridegroom. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

A young man who lived at West Stanley went to Dur- ^ bam OH Monday morning with a young woman for the purpose of being married at the Register Office. Owing to some cause the wedding, it was found, could not take place that day, and it was put off till Wed nesday. The young couple went from the Begister Office into the Banks .on the side of the river, and sat down on a seat.

WHAT INVENTION HAS DONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

WHAT INVENTION HAS DONE. What has invention done ? Well, this will serve as an example merely." It used to tate by old methods, as compared with inventions now used, five times as much labor in boot maKing, four times as much in flour making, .three times as mu: li in coal mining, six times as much in mak» ^ tin cans, three times as much in carriage diking, and ten times as many looms can now be managed by one weaver. At a silver mine in Nevada a stream of water falling 46Gft is made to turn a water-wheel, and gives 200 horse-power. The same stream is carried down another 1680ft., and is caught on six water-wheels,: giving off 750 horse-power, which by means of electricity is conveyed to the surface, and rues a 60-stamp battery. It is by the same indentions-the water-wheel and'electricity that the great task of using Niagara is about to be effected. Only 4 per cent, of the water will be used; it will not be noticeable, but that quantity will supply 120,000 horse power, The power wil...

A New Shudder. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

A Sew Shudder. The French author, wlio was compli mented by Vietor Hugo as the inventor of "a new shadier," could hardly have con ceived anything more gruesome than what is set down with matter-of-fact plainness by Mr. Hume Uisbet, in an article on " The Papuan and his Master," in the current Fortnightly Review. The writer begins by confessing his inability to answer the ques tion whether, when so-called savage races are doomed to perish by contact with the white intruder, it is most merciful for the invader to stride on quickly, shooting them down wholesale, or to spread over them the ghastly mirage of his protection, and permit them to be gradually demoralised and filtered from the face of the earth. He liinfa plainly enough that the Germans on the north of Papua have practically decided for the plan of immediate ex termination. - At the outset the land of the tribes was given to their own settlers, who paid nothing to the nativeB. The Papuans regard as sacred the right of propert...
