These were the words : ''Brunswick experts are now working on an idea which threatens to revolutionise all previous standards of reproduction.' 'Impossible' we said, recalling many instances where the Brunswick won patronage in side-by-side tests tfith other instruments in dozens of Brisbane homes. Recall ? inay also, countless occasions where customers came back to the ^ninswick to buy after listening to every com petitive' instrument in the City.

He also laid down the primary principles of hydromechanics, and made many dis coveries in pure mathematics. His 'Treatise on Motion' appeared about 1611.
