Scientific Items. HANDRAILING. The first person who printed any directions concerning the mode of forming a wreath rail, was Mr. Francis Price, surveyor to the Cathe-&lt;*> dral Church of Salisbury. In the first half of the last century he published a work entitle^ "The British Carpenter," in which the wreath, rail was mentioned. This work' was deotieatlpd":* to the Earl of Hertford, and the titlepage bore the following certificate:—"Having perused this treatise of carpentry, compiled by Mr.""^ Francis Prioe, we think it a very useful and in* structive piece, and as such recommend it 0' every one concerned in works of that kind.— V, &lt;£ Hawksmoor, John James, James Gibbs." Notwithstanding the approval of these Celebris ties, Mr. Prioe's work was superseded in the \ public esteem by that of Mr. Peter Nicholson, '*, who, in "The Carpenter's New Guide," laid down a plan by which wreathed handrail* round circular and elliptic well-holes could be squared upon geometr...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER X. POOR ETHEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866
The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER X. POOR ETHEL. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. THE day that followed the return of Mr. Basset and Hawk shaw from the perilous exploration of Acton Chine was one of dreadful suffering for poor Ethel. Kind old Nance Folgate had forced the girls to retire to bed as dawn was breaking; but no sleep closed tbo eyes of Ethel Basset. Morning came, a bright May morning, and still no word of Morley; for she could not realize M yet the idea, the dread conviction, of hit* death, that he had indeed perished so miserably Oh! was this the world of yesterday ? Her Bister, Bose, weary with watching over night, was now asleep. Happy Rose, who could gain oblivion in slumber! Ethel quitted her restless bed, opened the window, and looked forth into the sunny morning. There was still the garden, with its trees, and flowers, the first rays of the sun shining through the conservatory; a distant glimpse of the village church through a long vista of oaks, and the blue sea beyond....
