The Most Ancient Ruins. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

The Most Ancient Ruins. The oldest architectural rainse in the world are believed to be the reek-cut teemples at Ipsambul, on the left bank of the Nile, in Nubia. The largest of these ancient temples contains fourteen apartments hewn out of pol:d stone. The largest single stone used in this work is one which forms a verandah-like projection along one side of the main temple. It i- .*it. lone, .ift. broad, and 17 ~one accoa.t sacs o!) feet thicl. This eolossal stone is suppar:cd by :xo rows of massive square pillars, four in each row, and eatch ,Oft. high. To each of these pillars is s attached a colossal figure of a human being, reaching from floor to roof. In front of the main temple are seated still ot!er colossi, four in number, the two largest being each ?ift. high. The only hint we have as to the actual ege of these architectural relies is from Smith, c the British Egyptologist, who says : 'The p colossi attached to the columns which support p the large stone mentioned are each...

POPULAR SCIENCE. The Speed of Cannon Balls. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

POPULAR SCIENCE. The Speed of Cannon Balls. * The speed-of every sort of projectile can be measured now to the fraction of an inch per second, and by calculating the resistance o of the air it canbe determined to the smallest fraction of a second just how long it will take a missi!e to reach a desired mark," said an engineer at the Brooklyn Navy Yard e I to a correspondent of the " Cincinnati Gazette." t "How? It is extremely simple. So e simple ttat itaccurse cannot be questioned. t We have what you might call a 20OOft. rule, and the time required by the shot to pass i over the fra' .0lft. from the mouth of the gun is mey o red by it to give the initial velocity of the ball or shell. "A line 200It. lung is marked from tte 9 mouth of the quu. At the li00ft. mark a fineo t wire ceevn is set, through which the ball u must pass.

Strath Creek Athletic Club. ANNUAL SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Strath Creek Athletic Club. ANNUAL SPORTS, The Strath Creek: Athletic Club are singularly fcrtunate in the matter of weather, and one is almost constrained   to believe they are in league with the clerk thereof. For three years in   succession, the day on which they fixed   their sports has broken fine and con tinued fine throughout; and this, at   the present season of the year, and during a period of storm, such as was   experienced last week, is noteworthy. 11 The sports held on last Friday passed off   successfully. 'There was a fair attendance   of spectators; a large number of     competitors and good racing; but in face , of this, we venture to believe, that had the affair been more extensively     advertised, the meeting would have been   eminently more successful.

Sin,--As a good deal has been said, and as a good deal has been left unsaid, respecting the above, will you please allow me to touch on the subject. Some years ago-I cannot exactly say hor many-there was an effort made at Reedy creek to provide the Anglican church with an organ and at another time with a Sunday school library. The wherewithal to purchase these things was subscribed locally-that is to say, for the most part, Reedy Creek, Strath Creek and Flowerdale-aud not alone did the adherents of the Church of England sui'scrihe. Many persons of other denominations and a number of Roman Catholics assisted. The Anglican church being thus handsomely provided was availed of for the holding of services very often and all went on smoothly. Time rolled by and the population of Reedy Creek-with the decrease in the gold...

Farm and Dairy. ih CALvls should not see the cow after p the third day. They should have 10 to 1libs of full milk per day, given a three times per day for two weeks. At the end of two weeks gradually add skim mill until the end of three or four weeks. Then give from 18S to 24 lbs of skins milk. All milk should be h blood warm. 99 or 100 degrees. At the end of each feeding slip a little grain into the mouth till it lilkes the taste, and then feed it out of ah x with some warm meal and hay.

The [?]torming of Bangkok. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

The - torming of Bangkok. Rather late in the day, but none the less interesting for that,the " Chronicle" publishes an eye-witness's account of how the French warships ascended the Menasm to Bangkok. At G p.m. on the night of the 13th ulE., the French cruiser L'Inconstant, accompanied by the gunboat Comete, steamed over the bar. As they passed the bar they were met, as M. Pavie had been warned, by a broadsibe from the Siamese vessels, echoed by a fusilade from the fort. The Frenchmen replied with vigor, and for fullyhalf-an-hour, as they ran the gauntlet, an incessant cannonade was kept up. But singularly little damage was done. Just in the gloaming they appeared round the bend of the river below i'aknam. As L'Inconstant approached, eheeommenced to shell the battery, which, like the other, and the Siamese gunboats, wascommanded by skilled danish officers, and at the same time poured in a steady fire from the tops. In five minutes they had prae. ticallysilenced the battery. The men-s...

To the Editor of the Broadford Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

To the Editor 4, the ih oaorud Coraier. SIR,-It was with feelings of amazement, mixed with scorn, and contempt, that I read an effusion re the above in your last week's issue. That a clergyman should waste valuable time in writing such a double-dis tilled extract of silly nonsense, for an intelli gent reading public is beyond my compre hension. The effusion, to my mind, contains neither ryhme, sense, nor reason, but through the whole, one can imagine that a considerat'- amount of gossip is disguised, which no doubt in the shape of retail scandal must have been eminently interest ing to the gossip-loving. Truly it is pitiable that a clergyman so far forgot hi dignity, as to make such ungentlemanly remarks in a public newspaper. It brings to my mind. the following lines from Shakespere: " But man, proud man, Drest in a little brief authority, Plays such fantastic tricks befo 7 Hleaven, As make the angels weep." To the pitiful wail " Please to pity my blindness etc " in the first palt ...

DRURY LANE THEATRE. In connection with the possible disappear anoe of Drury Lane Theatre, it may be in teresting to note that Alfred Bunn, one of the managers of that histosie house, writing in 1840, said: - The management of the national theatres having proved a failirein the hands of those who had hitherto undertaken it, there must have been come latent cause, which the speculators have not inquired into, r the commentators dilated upon. Since the rebuilding of Drury Lane Theatre in 1812, it has been under the direction of a sub-commit tee, of Messrs F.lliston, Price, Lee, Polhill and myself; while Covent Garden, since its opening in 1809, has been under the superintendence of Messrs Harris, C. Kemble, Laporte, Osbaldiston, Macready and myself. In speaking of thie earlier management of Drury Lane Theatre, under the snb.committee, Lord Byron, who was then a member of it, in a letter to Mr Moore, date 12th June, 181, gives the following humorous description of his colleagues and the...
