LYDDITE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
The explosive force of the lyddite shell is extraordinary. Whilst the ex pert already mentioned was in England a series of experiments were carried out, showing that a 451b. shell would carry and act at 1000 yards in all di rections from the point of impact and explosion. Large pieces of shell were found 1000 yards behind the point of explosion. From, these experiments it resulted' that lyddite could not be em ployed except at ranges considerably beyond. 1000 yards, as at a less dis tance it would be as dangerous to the firers as to the enemy. An explana tion was also given by the expert of the news 'that Boers had been killed whilst standing upright from the mere shock of the explosion. There is, it appears, no truth in the report that was current some time ago that the fumes of lyddite were deadly, but the shock of the explosion is stated to be so terrible that its effect would be to literally "break the hearts" of any per sons who might be in the vicinity of the point of impact. ...

AMen in association, as Galileo said, are like.chariot horses whose harness has given way; they damage each other by the mere fact of their connection. Human emotions iniensify in direct ratio to the number of persons sharing them at the same time and place; so that courage, cruelty, admiration, all multiply and acquire sttraordinary momentum, forming, by the potency of numbers, a veritable psychological up. heaval, in which the elements of hered itary passions, stifled and suppressed by education, start up from the depths to the su...

THE GEORGE TOWN IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
THE GEORGE TOWN IMPROVE MENT ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Through your influence allow me to suggest to the above not to give too much attention to laying down dusty gravel pathways, but to use their energies in maintaining the grassy carpet-like bordaers by the road sides. The softest and best portions are small feathery fronds patches. To tread these is quite one of the pleasures after our hard city paths. And above all do. not destroy any more of the ti-trecs, but rather do extra planting of shady trees round about the township.-Yours, etc., S. SICKLEMORE.
