BRAIN WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 28 September 1901
— 1 BRAIN WORK, Without this how comparatively valueless would be the labour of the baud ? Men would still be toiling in the rude fashion of primitive bar barism, nor would the comforts and refinements of life have increased since then. Britain would be a land of savages still. It is the mind which is at work along with the putting forth 01 Doany strengtn wnicn gives even manual labour its chief value. And there is no description of toil which has not been facilitated by men who have never actually shared it them selves. Greater results «re achieved when some devote themselves wholly to the thinking process — inventing, arranging, superintending— than if all engaged alike in manual toil. It is a true proverb that a master's eye does more work than both his hands; and how often has a great thonght — as, for example, that which led to the inven tion of printing, or to construction of the steam-engine— effected more than if the thinker of that thought had laboured with his hands a mill...

He loft school with credit and entered the service, but before he had even tried on his uniform he threw up his com mission to go into the Academy of Fine Arts. There he became a great favourite with his teachers. One of his sketches gained him a a silver medal and the approbation of the authorities; but this did not hinder Verestchagin from rushing abroad before his training was ended. In Palis, at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, he studied under Gerome. Then followed several years of travel. After this the young painter turned soldier once more, and, attached to the suite of Gover...

The Colour of British Warships. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 28 September 1901
The Colour of British Warships. For many years it has been an open.. question which was -the most suitable, color for .warships, the main object being to decide on some means to reduce to a minimum the visibility of .^easels in - war timn. The grBat difficulty has been to effect this object so that vessels may be - rendered : as little liable to discernment by day. as well as night. As far baok as the Russian scare, in 1886, it was decided' that reddish grey — then officially1 termed a neutral::tint — was- the most suitab'e color,-' and so- confident were the admiralty officials that this color would have the desired effect that evory ship then likely to get into close quarters with a possible, foe was corored with the- neutral tint, Bat the effect was far. from -satisfactory,, as the British fleet was robbed of uni formity of appearance, owing to tbe many distinot tints ? of grey which wera mixed by the various naval painters, and it was not an uncommon occurnnce to see three ships...
