An Aerial Torpedo Thrower. A new aerial torpedo thrower has heen invented, this time by a Manchester (Eng land) man. The inventor is J. E. Bott, ait ?rngiiMer.

The shell is said to have, a rure. chamber filler! with compressed nir at n. wtiii pressure, it iif u |nui;rci hi uk? lireerh-loading, sinooth-liored gun which is used, a pin in the breech of the weapon is operated so as to force Iwick or cut awiy a retaining valve or plug of tliu projectile, and the compressed air, being released, impinges on (he breech, causing the shell to Im ejected.

A Clerical Innkeeper. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 26 September 1891

A Clerical Innkeeper. , Ministers of the Gospel are, forWie most part, the sworn enemies of publicans (says an English contemporary). It is, therefore, not a little surprising when we learn that a clergyman in a South of England parish combines with his clerical functions tlioso of an innkeeper. And it would seem that he understands this latter business well — better, in uicu muii a great many puniicans :. ior lie not only supplies his customers with thn purest ales, but, strange as it may scoin, also transforms -hem into sober, peaceful folk.

Farmers should Keep Books. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 26 September 1891

Farmers should Seep Bsoks. Farmer, if you don't know how to keep n set of single ci^ry books, or n book which you can register all expenses and ail sales, learn how at once. The merchant who couldn't keep an account of profits atid losses, wouldn't expect anything else, than failure. Why should you ! A farming journal says ; - ' How many know what it costs to put in a crop of wheat, and when they get it cut and threshed know how much it has cost tn raise it t A great many fanners say this don't pay, and what don't pay, who don't really know whether it pays or not. How many farmers know that their expenses were last year, and what their income was? We think that if farmers will pny closer attention to business, do more work and less grumbling, they will get along better. In conclusion, say that I am a farmer, live on a rented f&rni and make farming pay ; and satisfied with my occupation, feel thankful that times are as good as they are, and thank God that I was born under the...

The Value of Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 26 September 1891

TWTTalue of Sleep. ' Ode American girls lay too little Istnest upon the value of 'sleep, as the- best^ and ropst wonderful tonic to the human system. It is no uncommon thing for them to be up until midnight and later, and yet arise in time to breakfast with the family at the usual hour, 8 o'clook in' the morning. The parents are somewhat to blame in this matter. Many of them hare still the old fashioned idea that lying in bed in the morning is -a form of idle ness that should not be indulged in ; the fathers, particularly, are most apt to feel that their daughters are inattentive if they are not on hand to brighten the breakfast hour, and give them a good-morning kiss. And it is a hardship, but a necessary^ie, if we would have our daughters ret^Bbheir health and beauty.
