The Spirit World. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
The Spirit World. MuasFlorence Marryat lectured lately at Ardwick on "The Spirit World." In her illustrations of table-rapping, she told her audience that an Elizabethan monk, with whom she had frequent conversations, told her the exact whereabouts of a dog whi:h she had lost. Hisdirectionsoninvestigation turned out to be perfectly accurate, and the dog was found at the fishmongers', as he had indi ?ated. The same spirit, a constant fre quenter of Miss Marryat't table, was fond of listening to singing, but objected by very rapid knocks of the table to a song called Champagne Charley. He demanded some thing serious, and was not eatisfied even with Ye Banks and Braes. One of the mostinteresting anec?otes was that of an old lady who was "leviated," The lady, who was in a separate room from the witnesses of the ocsarrence, was known to be in conversa tion with one or more spirit. Suddenly a voice was heard in tones of remonstrance, and the old lady was wafted into the room some height a...

PRISON TRAFFICKING. TALES OF THE EARLY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
PRISON TRAFFICKING. TALES OF THE EARLY DAYS. The recent punishment of a prisoner at Pentridgo for an attempt to secrete goods I manufactured in the stockade, apparently t with the object of sendioc them outside the prison walls, revives the question of whether trafficking is yet rife in the gaols of the colony. There is every reason to believe, however, that Pentridge, although the largest penal establishment in I the colony, and the place where the long- a sentenced and most notorious of cri minals are immured, is comparatively' 1 if not wholly, free from the neo farious trading between warders and prisoners, which did so much to in terfere with the proper maintenance of discipline in the early days. The prompt punishment of offenders detected has done much to sweep away the evil, and no time in its eventful history has the stockade been moreably controlled than under the present management cf the governor, Colonel Bull, and the inspector-general, Captain Evans. At various periods ...
The Elephant says "Please." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
The Elephant says "Please." Dr Pringle writes to the " Times "-While visiting the Zoo some time ago, I took my children to see the elephant, and to give themn a ride. Alter the ride I ,anted to give the elephant a bun, and. to make him soy "I'lease," said "Salaam kuro-i.e., make a salaam. The animal looked at me hard for some time with the bun in my hand; at last memory came to his help. and up went his trunk, and he made a r:ost correct " salaam." The keeper seemed very moch surprised, and asked me what it meant. I told him it was a point of good manners for an elephant to raise his trunk up to his forehead if any one was going to feed him, and that ire quently elephants will ask in this polite manner tor something when they see any one pass by who is likely to feed then'. The keeper assured me he had never seen the elephant do this before, and, if I remember rightly, he had been in charge of the animal since it arrived from India, and that it was one of those which took part in li...

Hollow Spars. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
Hollow Spars. The use of hollow spars for boats de signed to attain great speed has intro duced a new and novel industry requir ing workmanship of the finest charac ter. The stick for this purpose is re qunired to be of exceptionally fine and straight grain, and after being roughly sEhaped is split longitudinally from end to end; the center of each of the halves is then hollowed out, and a greater or less anlount is removed, according to the intended location of the spar. the upper spars being much the lighter. These hollows run nearly the length of the spar. great care being essential to have them follow the taper of the out sido of the spar exactly, to insure uni form thickness at every point--o course when this has been done :nd the two halves of the spar replaced in their original position, a circular hole is left in the renter of the spar, running near ly the whole length, and following its taper from end to end. After this the two halves are fastened in place again by means of...

So of the Highlands, which ate already being gnawed over by in satiable commercial demands. It is the out side world chiefly that enjoys them. All these natural beauties ought to be protected and preserved by law. Is it, however, necessary to buy them? The beauty of nature we affirm to be a public use. The navigable river is a highway, and its enjoyment a common right, not only for logs and ice, but also for human beings with eyes and souls. What damage would itbe to the Palisades and the Highlands to take the easement of beauty by prohibiting the marring of it? Whatever damagein caused should be paid on principles of eminent domain. Thus pri vate right and public enjoyment would be reconciled, at the least possible expense` to the States con...

A Great Musician. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
A Great Musician. One of Rubinastein's little jokes was to keep his birthday on the wrong date, the origin of which, he used to explain, was a lapse of memory on the part of his mother. He was born on 16th November, 1829, but fell into the way of celebrating the anniversary on 18th November. He first came to London in 1S42, being, as he says, "graciously received by the young and handsome Queen Victoria, and although but a boy of twelve, I felt no shyness or timidity in thepresence of those great lords and ladies." Indeed. bashfulness in the presence of Royalty was never a fault of iia, and it is told of him that on one of his later visits to London, when he was presented to the Princess of Wales, he shocked the bystanders and considerably amused her Royal Highness by remarking that he was delighted to see her, because she was looking lovely. On his first visit to London, Moscheles spoke of him as "a Russian boy whose fingers are as light as feathers and yet as strong as a man's." O...

Snow on Mars. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
Snow on Mars. Among the most interesting observations of Mars during the recent opposition were those relating to the gradual disappearance of the snow cap surrounding its southern pole. The disappearance was due, of course, to the fact that it was summer in the southern hemi sphere of Mars, and the polar enows melted more and more rapidly as the sun rose higher upon them. Yet, although the reason was plain, and because is was plain, one could not watch the process without experiencing a strange feeling that amounted almost to awe. It is quite easy to think dispassionately of the possibility that some things may go on in other worlds just as they do in this one as long asyour eyes have not confirmed what is in your mind; but when, peering through a telescope, you actually behold such occurrences the effect is startling. 0
Collie and Snow-buried Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
Collie and Snow-buried Sheep. Among tales told by old shepherds some interesting anecdotes are given by way of illustrating the marvellous performancea of the Scotch collie in "marking" sheep buried under the snow. During the great snowstorm long remembered in Cumberland whole flocks were in many places drifted over the great depths in the mountain hollows. On one property all hands were at work probing with Enow poles, and a few sheep were resoued after much laborious exertion. Three or four old trained dogs were with the shepherds, but took very little part in the search. The most eager curiosity, however, was displayed by a young dog, not quite a year old, w frisking about at first, soon began to ponder the proceedins of the shepherds, peep into the holes bored, snuff at the poles when they were withdrawn from the snow, and then evidently set to work on the case. Aiter the men had gone to some distance he remained intently looking into one of the holes they had loft, when suddenl...

Artificial Cotton. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
Artificial Cotton. An artificial cotton, said to be much cheaper than the natural, is reported from France. It is made from the wood of the pine, spruce, or larch, which is defibrated and then disintegrated and bleached with a hot solution of bi-solphide of sods and chlorideof lime. The resulting pure cellu lose is treated with chloride of zinc, castor oil and gelatine, and the paste is passed through a perforated plate. This gives a thread, which is afterwards woven into a strong and very presentable fabric. 0--
