Advice during Thun[?] ning. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 September 1891

Advice during1 Thanfll^^^^^^H aing. ' ^^J0^H A person apprehensive of danger from liglit ning, happening during the time of thunder to be in a house not secured by conductors, would do well to avoid sitting near the chimney, near a looking-glass, or any gilt pictures or wainscot. The safest place is the middle of the room, so it be not under a metal lustre suspended by a chain, sitting in uiic uuuii, mm mj'iiig i.iiu iccb u|j til uiiuuiuj. It is still safer to bring two or three mattresses or beds into the middle of the room, and, folding tli-m up double, place the clrair upon them ; for, these not being so good conductors ns the walls, the lightning will not choose an interrupted course through the air of the room and tlie bedding when it can ro through a continued better conductor — | the wall. But, where it can be had, a I hammock or swinging bed, suspended iiy silk | cords equally distant from the wall on every side, and from the ceiling and floor above, and below, affords the s...

"Gentlemen." [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 September 1891

'Gentlemen.'

Most men, it may be supposed, desire to be such, and it is an honorable ambition. After being a good man, it is the next best thing, and is very nearly as diflicult. The two terms are, of course, at many points interchangeable. Good men. undoubtedly, make the best treiitle men, and the best gentlemen have all been good 'n«n.

Shipbuilding in C[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 September 1891

SWpTmiiding- ©ftadi/. ' . Wbiting 'from Halifax, Nova-* Scotia, to the London Economist, Mr. Peter Imrie predicts that Canada will eventually control %e ship building industry. ' It is now practically proved, he argues, that steel mixed with from three' to five per cent W nickel is double tie strength of ordinary steel, and that it doto not corrode of take on barnacles, so that ships constructed of it will never require scraping. Moreover, as ships of nickelated ?teel may safely be built lighter than ordi nary steel ships, their engine power and con-. BUIIlDtian of fVhftl ntov ha «uf«it.* faA.tnnA without diminution of speed. In short, nickelated steel seems bound*to supersede ordinary steel, and probably also all other materials in present use, in ship construction. Nickel has thus become a necessity, and the nation which is in a position to produce this material must necessarily control the ship |kiitdiug tradu. And, for the present, at Hut, there is no known supply of nickel Hjrt...

A Knot or Nautical Mile. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 September 1891

A Knot or Nautical Mile. IJow much is a knot t This question is asked, we believe, iu every sea passage by some passenger or other, and never meets with a clear reply. Sailors themselves do not describe it distinctly, and books of reference diS'er as to its dimensions. We purpose to answer the question here. A knot is one sixtieth of a mean degree of the earth's meri dian. This definition requires explanation and also numerical computation. The eaith's meridian is commonly described as any circle whose centre is the centre of the c&rlh, and whose circumference passes through the Poles. This is not exact, because the meri dian is not a true circle. Evidently, it would lie a true circle if the earth were a true sphere; but the earth is not a true sphere — it is a spheroid, its diameter measured on the axis being less than its diameter nt ? the equator. Hence the circumference of a sec tion of the earth by a plane passing through its centre aud the Poles, which circuinfetence i...

Young Man's Best Recommendation. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 September 1891

Young Man's Bast Bocommeaiatioa. The best recommendation a young man can have is a reputation for sobriety and economy, for the reason that expensive habits fre quently lead to peculations when opportunity occurs, and are always a temptation to live beyond one's income. As a general rule, honesty is as natural as good health to persons of frugal habits, and although there may be exceptions, such persons are usually trust worthy and reliable. On tho other hand, nine tenths of the many defalcations where confidence, has been betrayed were caused by dissolute habits, or where more than nn ordi nary income was required to keep within the swim of Ushiow.—EUikart (lnd.) Truth.
