A Walking-Stick Telescope. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 27 September 1878

ft. Walking-Stick Telescope. A useful novelty has been brought out by Messrs. Bradford & Co., of Holborn, which should canmend itself to the Colonial stick and umbrella trade. Thjs is a Patent Galilean Walking Stick Telescope. Its object is to obviate the necessity for carrying heavy tele scopes with their impedimenta of cases and straps on long journeys. An ordin ary walking-stick has a small compass let into it, close by the handle or crook. A brass lid or cap covers this with a very small glass eye in it. An object ?glass is pressed on to the stick by a spring to the proper focus, and by this means a powerfid telescope is at once available, by which objects can l-e clearly discerned twenty or fiveand twenty miles distant. The object glass is easily carried in the waistcoat pocket. To the traveller at home or abroad, to whom every ounce of unnecessary weight is an object, it should be a great boon.

The astronomical deck in the cathedral at Strasburg. whose origin dates as far beck as 1352, was set up in its place under the euspicee ofBertholdde Bucket, then Bishoo of Strae. burg.

Under the Verandah. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 27 September 1878

Under the Verandah. "Whatever men do, or think, or seem,   our motley paper seizes for its theme." [from JUVENAL.] The Editor is again complaining. He   says now that my writing has too much local color and point, and that it does not express his view of affairs. But I   protest against being expected to behave   like the the old man described by Æsop   as travelling with his ass, and if Mr.   Editor objects to my writing, he has   only to say so and I will trouble him no more. The Rechabites favored the public with an enjoyable temperance demons- tration in connection with their "Annual Council," "Union of Tents"     or whatever title may be appropriate to such a gathering. The star of the even- ing was Mr. W. Williams of Barossa ; who, evidently vain of a head powdered with the snow of some seventy winters, exhibited himself as a fine specimen of humanity flourishin...

In the United States is being vigor ously harvested, and it is estimated that the yield will reach 400,000,000 bushels or ten bushels each for ever? man. woman, ana cnua in tue country, 11 me population be forty millions. The potato crop in most of the States will be of ' immense magnitude,' though it bas been damaged in some districts by excessive rains. The grass crop is the heaviest that has been known for many rears. The severe frosts that occurred during the setting of the fruit-buds were injurious, and so the crop of perches in California, this season will it is estimated; not be more than half the usual quantity, and the quality of the fruit also promises to be indifferent There will, however, it is calculated, be an abundance of all other kinds of fruit in this state, the strawberry crop being especially reported as abundant and ex eellent. «

Type Setting in Japan [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 4 October 1878

Type Selling In' Japan The advantage of alphabetic writing are well shown in a comparison between the work of an ordinary English' print ing office and one in China or Japan, where each word has a distinctcharacter. A full fount of Japanese type comprises 50,000 characters, of which 3,000 are in constant use, and for 2,000 more there are frequent calls. The type is disposed about the composing room on racks like those in a reading room, and the compositors wander np and down setting type and taking exercise at the same time. With so many characters it is needless to say the readers are men of great capacity and high scholarship.

An Eastern Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 4 October 1878

An Eastern Railway. In these days of railwray extension wonderful impetus is given to many districts by the introduction of cheap methods of reaching a market, where but a tew years ago no one ever thought there would be produce to send to any market, and aluiolfc no part of the colony but looks forward to the time when they too shall be linked to the seaboard by the Lyon road. The im mense advantage tf the railway over the macadamised ioad is apparent to all, for though the1 road does not cost anything like so much as the railway, yet its cost is jdl unproductive of revenue, and not the smallest fraction if even the interest on outlay is repaid, aor is maintenance provided for. On the other hand the railway (except in me or two cases where no line ought jver to have lieen laid) repays not onlv ihe cost of working, but also the cost jf maintenance, and a portion at least if the outlay in construction, and beside this promises to return a hand some profit in the future.
