PERTINENT PARS. A snapper-up of unconsidered trifles. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 31 December 1898
PERTINENT, PARS. [BY HAWK-EYE.] A snapper-up of unconsidered trifles. To-day the present year expireth I How quickly have the cumbersome wheels of the world's machinery re volutioned that we once again " wel come the coming, and speed the de parting." And how have we sowed during the past year 1 I fear it would take me the X Rays to discover. Speaking for myself, the :harvest is poor, and unless something turns up during the coming year, I shall have to lead a different life. Some can get along from year to year without doing a tap of work, others cannot get along no matter how they toil. Therein comes the difference, but whence comes the solution 1 I have tried in vain to supply the missing link, but so far I have been unable to do so I have been told that you must have brains to live in such a way, and therefore I have concluded that some mystery attaches to those who knock out an existence in this manner. To all my readers, and more especially those whom I have referred to in my ...

THE LARGEST DYNAMIO IN TIE WORLD. THE largest and most powerful dynamo in the world is in process of erection at the station of the Brooklyn Edison Illuminating Company at Bay Ridge. Its total height from crown to hase will hbe sixty feet,; and it will produce electricity at a pressure three times as .great as that of the famous generators as Niagara Falls, the current being sufficient to supply 18,000 incandescent lamps. On the rim of the wheel, which is fifty feet in diameter, are placed forty rectangular magnetic poles, around which insulated-copper wire is wound. The guard which-surrounds-the rim of this enormous wheel hears on its inner surface the armature in forty triple segments. -Copper conductors, which touch copper rings on the axle of; the wheel, distribute the current by insul ated wires to each of the forty poles.
NOT NEGOTIABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 31 December 1898
NOT NEGOTIABLE. An incident which occurred recently illustrates forcibly the effect of these words on a cheque. A tradesman went to a leading city firm with a cheque drawn by. them for £5, and asked if the signature was theirs. On being told that it was he.went away. Shortly after a person called and stated that he had lost the cheque, and, the city firm thereupon stopped payment of it. Next day the tradesman caine to the- firm, and excitedly explained that on being assured that the cheque was a geruilneone,. le had taken it in payment of 2s.. 61. worth. of goods, and had given £4.17s. 6d. change. Now comes the point:--If the cheque had not been inarked " Not Negoti able," the tradesmian would have been a holder for value, and could have re covered the aniount from the drawers. As it is, he imuist bea the loss... As it should be explained, .the effect of the. words "Not Negotiable' is to carry on. any difect of title. ..

With to-day's. paper we present our readers with a calenm dar for the coming year. Christmas-tide passed off very quietly in Healeeville, though on Saturday even ing last Nicholson-street presented a very gay and animated appearance. Local resi dents assembled en masse in the principal thoroughfare, and coupled with thie largo number of visitors, the town was trans formed into a scene of bustle, excitement, and conviviality. 'Numerous business places were bedecked with shrubs and greenery, and adroit fingers had been busily engaged in lettering the season's greetings. Services were rendered in the local churches in accord with the occasion on Sunday, when large congregations at tended and listened attentively to the erpoundings of the reverend g...
CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 6 January 1899
CYCLING NOTES. The use of bicycles by the London Fire Brigade is significant of the general opinion that for promptitude and speed the bicycle is unrivalled. The first to make use of this means of locomotion in this connection is Com mander Wells, the successor of the famous Captain Shaw. The untiring object of the commander's life is to still further increase the efficiency of his men, and it is not to be wondered at that they have quickly followed suit, and now they :all keep a bicycle handy to bring them to the station when called upon without the loss of a moment. A story of the holidays goes to show how useful a bicycle is, even where horses are in constant use. The scene a country house party and the Christ mas dinner had been successfully over come, when it was suggested that a drive to a neighbouring point of picturesque interest would be as good a way as any of combating the effects of a heavy dinner on a very hot day. This course of action was unanimously agreed upon, and ...
A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 6 January 1899
A VO2ALJALEI JDISCOVERY. Scientists tell us that in this nine teenth century of ours, about the greatest strides made in the discovery world have been in nmedicine. We have to record a discovery by an American medical man of a certain vegetable substance that has the eff:ct in the di gestion organs of Nature's own animal bile. This discovery is revolutionising all the present methods of treatment for digestIve ailments. The old theory of pepsin, bismuth, starving, purging, &c., &c., is to be done away with. This great vegetable substance is com pounded with other ingredients to facilitate the working, and to-day this remedy can be purchased the world over and in Australia under the name :of Bile Beans for Biliousness. This great remedy possesses the peculiar properties of acting on the bowels without purging or otherwise weaken ing the patient. This is because the; substance that relaxes the bowels has about the same action as the natural bile. Bile Beans are purely ...
HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 6 January 1899
HUMOR. A schoolmaster was very partial to one of his pupils, and very severe to another. One clay they both were tardy. He called them up on the floor .--" James, my boys" said he to the favorite, regretfully, but kindly, " why were you late 1 " You see, sir," replied Janres, " I was asleep, sir, and dreamed I was going to California, and thourght the school bell was the bell of the steamboat. " That will do, my boy," said the teacher, glad of an excuse to shield him ; "always tell the truth, my boy." " And now, sir," said he to the other, sternly " where were you i" "You see, sir, said the urchin candidly, "I was waiting to see Jim off !" Dean Stanley used to say that until his marriage he had never really lived. A Lancashire man says that until his marriage he lived like a fighting- ock. His wife overheard him make this re mark one day, and after that he lived more like a lighting-cock than ever, "Englishman (to Scotch girl on her way to church with her hoots and stockings in her ...

CRICKET, IIE.ALSVILL, V. WILLIAMSTOWN RAMBLERS. On Saturday afternoon last, on the local ground, a match took place be I ween Healesvillh and a mixed team, styled the \Villiamstown Ramblers, the latter being composed of a number of visitors. There were several regular playing members of the local club ab. sent, but their places were filled by men from Coranderrk, and a pleasant game resu'ted, more especially so to Lite home team, as the result ended rost satisfactorily from their point of view. Ifealesville were the first to go to the wickets, and made the fairly respectable score of 120, though it has to be remembered that three batsmen, namely, E. M. Baird, Hancock, and Pepper retired. These three players contributed 7S l:etween them, with scores of 34, 32, and 12 respectively. Dixon 16, and Gibbs 15, were the other double figure scorers. The visi tors were lamentably weak in bowling, and it is quite on the cards that the local players could have kept their opponents in the field ...

This, perhaps, might 'be ac counted for by the unfavorable weather conditions which prevailed during the early part of the day, as the morning broke very unpropitiously.
