TELEGRAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 3 August 1881

TELEGEAMS. It is commonly supposed that brevity is tho essence of a telegram, and that the shorter a message cau be, the better ; that if you have a thing to say in ten words, it is better to say it in seven ; if you have a thing to say in seven, it is better to say it in five. This appears to be tho creed of the general telegram- sendor. No doubt, if his sole object bo to swell the revenues of tho States his procedure is laudable ; but there are other considerations to be taken into account ; and if he wishes his telegrams to be rendered in such guise that they shall bo understood par qui Ac droit, he will strive rather to make tho working plain than laconic. Eedundancy is, of course, to be avoided, but too great brevity is equally ti be eschewed. Laconic writing, it is to be borne hi mind, tends to obscurity ; obscur ity makes it impossible for the telegraph operator to know when he is sending souse and when nonsense ; and if he has no guide as to what he is sending, the chances a...

THE HELIOGRAPH IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 3 August 1881

THE HELIOGEAPH IN WAE. Thr extensive uso of the heliograph by the British forces iu the Zulu. and Afghan cam paigns has given a wonderful impetus to the art o! signalling by means of flashes of light. The heliograph itself as now perfected, leavcs little to improve upon ; but it is of course only Applicable so long as the sun is above the horizon. Hence tho attention of inventors i.s chiefly concentrated upuu improvements iu lamps for signaling at nig-lit. As our readers are aware, the alphabet used is a combination of short and long flashes, corresponding to, but not exactly identical with, the dots aud dashes of the Morse telegraph system. The most obvious plan for signalling at night is to use a lamp with a movable diaphragm, which will shut off the light for loug or short periods as may be required. An English inventor some time since contrived a lamp iu which a jet of pyrotechnic inixj ture, consisting largely of powdered magnesium, was propelled into a spirit tiaine by means o...

WHAT HE SWORE OFF ON. It was just three o'clock in the afternoon— just the hour when old soakers put down their mid-watch dram. Seven or eight men were seated around the stove when one of them suddenly remarked : ' There comes Jim. Poor fellow, I feel sorry for him.' ' What's tho matter with JimJ' Jasked . two or three at once. ' He swore off on the first, and he scorns bound to stick to it.' ' Swore off, eh ?

ARE YOUR SEEDS GOOD? [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 3 August 1881

ARE YOUR SEEDS GOOD? It is discouraging to manure, plough, har row, and sow or plant, and after all this labour, have the crop fail from the lack of ?good seeds. In ordinary seasons and at the usual planting time, failures like these may be avoided by first testing the seeds, Over a large portion of the country the season has been most unusual, and in many cases the ploughing aud sowing has been delayed until even now. At this late day we can afford to run no risks ; the first planting must now be the last, as it ?will be altogether too late to repair failure from poor seed by resceding. While in all cases where there is the least doubt as to their vitality, it is proper that seeds should be (e-.k-l in advance; at this particular time-fciiis pre caution becomes imperative. By all means see that this source of. 'bad luck' is removed. It is an easy matter to test the 6eed and make sure that they arc right. A small quantity of the corn or other field seed, and even down to pockets of f...

"COMIN' THRO' THE EYE." [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 3 August 1881

'COittN1 THRO1 THE RYE.' A. New York pictorial published an illuBtra lion of ' Oottliu' Thro' the Rye,' nnd blundered into what we presume is the popular misconception of the ditty, giving a laddie and lassie meeting and kissing iu a field of grain. The lines ? - If a laddie meet a lassie Comin'thro' the we. and especially the other couplet A' the lads they smile on me ?When oomin' thro' the rj'c, seem to imply that traversing the rye was an habitual or common thing ; but what iu the name of the Royal Agricultural Society could be the object of trampling down a crop of grain in that style ? The song, per haps, suggests a harvest scence, where both sexes, as is the custom in Great Britain, are at work reaping, and where they would come and go through the fields, indeed, but not through the rye itself, 60 to meet and kiss in it. The truth is, the rye in this case is no more grain than Rye Beach is, it being the name of a small shallow stream, near Ayr, Scotland, which, having neither ...
