RANDOM SHOTS. By a Biiorecs Mfarksntam. Our imp Faetosus returned the other day from a prolonged trip to Mars. ie accnoute for the length of his abseunce from this planet (and of his effusions to these colulaus) to the fact that the " nectar of the gods"' com, monly consumed in Mars has latterly been of a very inferior quality. In fact, said he, I became quite ill. Perhaps, good master, youdon't believe in spirits becomieg sick. Ah, well, wait until you get there yourself, and then you will see. Spirits can eat, too, good Smaster, continued he Gorgonlos sits abominable and wan, Like n fat squuab upon a Cbinese fan.

A BANK CLERK'S MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 24 October 1902
A BANK CLERK'S MISTAKE. --+--. The other day'a bank clerk made a singular and what might have proved a serious mistake in the or dinary; course of his business. A tradesman sent an assistant to the bank for £2 worth of coppers. aInd the clerk handed over to him package containing, as he supposed the requisite amount of copper change. Later in the day, however. the clerk was horrified to discover that packages containing £100 In gold were missing. He at once sur mised that the lost gold packages Ilmust have been among those given for the .coppers to the shop assist ant. - lie went round post-haste, to. the tradesman and inquired if the cop pers had been found all right, and was told that it was supposed they were. But on his asking that the packages should be examined it was found that the missing £100 was there, and the money was restored much to the clerks relief. The tradesman, had not opened the pack ages on receiving them but had slim ply put them away in his safe.
THUNDER-SOURED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 24 October 1902
THUNDER-SOURED MILK. ---+- It somletimoes happens, not always, that mtilk will tu'n sour during a thunderstorm. It t'nlot always the light that. causes it, for the heat before the storm is often great enough to mako thu I milk fermont. But lightning can, and gomltlhnes does, snako milk sour by its action on the air. Air as overybody knows, is corn posed of two gases-oxygen and ni trogen : but theso ugases are mixed togother, not comlinlted. Lightning, however, makes the gasets coml?inO with the air through which it passes and this combination produces nit ric acid, soml of which mixes with the milk and turns it sour. P'erhaps it may Ie well to explain the chelliical dIlflorencl betweenl mix Ilg andI combining. When differllnt ingredients are put together without undergoing any chemllical chango they aru inixod; its, tor exuample, grains of adllt of variolIs colours may bo tmixod in a bottle, 130l when the churacterlstilc of eacll in gredllent are altered by thu union, theorn Is t co...
TRAPPING RABBITS FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 24 October 1902
TRAPPING RABBITS FOR EXPORT. The extraordinary increase lit tle number or rabbits in Australia has led to a very prolitable export trade with England. This trade was cont tlenced about twenty years ago. when t wo or three factories were es tablished, wheru the rabbits were cooked and tinned. This trade in creased steadily, but it was not of very great Implortance. Then, less tllan ten years ago. the systell of lrccziig the rabbits and sending thell houie like muttonl was intro dtulcd. T'his proved so prolitablle that It a very short tine the trade jumped ulp into anl important posl tion.. Now hunldreds of thousands of rabbits are sent hlome! frozen froui Australia and New Zealand every year, and all connected with the In dustry are doing well. Tlhe rabbits are caught IIn tile country districts, most of thell lie ing trapped, while others are dug out o tlhe burrows. Rabbits that have been shot or caught by dogs are useless owing to tile bruises. Tlie rabbits are sent il crates to thl...

PAINT MADE FROM DEAD BODIES. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 24 October 1902
PAINT MADE FROM DEAD BODIES, -+. Hamlet reflected curiously upon, the fact that the body of a great ruler might yet be used to " stop a hole to keep the wind away," but mod ern ingenuity has discovered more useful, if not more honourable uses for the bodies of departed emperors. Manufacturers of artists' colours now often use mummies in making their colours, and it is almost cer tain that a small percentage of some ancient' Egyptian rulers went to compose so'onl of the colours ntIdd by various R. A.'s in painting their protraits for this year's Academy. }Mummies are usually reserved for the bitumen of the best pitch and this blended with the bone of the Iltllumy gives a peculiarly beauti ful tint, especially in brown or dark blue. '1'he export of tumnUaiea is now forbidden, but one will last a mItan uftcturer .for years. The colour so inttde is principally used by puor trait painters.
