THE FIFE PEERAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
THE FIFE PEERAGE. The announcement that the Dukedom of Fife may follow in the female line is another proof of the luck that has attended the family of Duff. Tho rise of the Duffs is one of the most wonderful stories in the Peeraee. desnite the fnnt that the genealogists have mado merry over their origin. The latest edition of Burke strictly follows the discoveries of the experts by beginning with plain Adsm Duff, who was a small farmer at Clanybeg, Morayshire. This good man's grandson was created JEarl of Fife, a title which Mr. G. E. Cokayna, the accomplished Clarenceux King of Armn, in hia wonderful Peerage, sarcas tically declares was assumed to suggest that Duff was descended from the old MacduflB, tho Thaues of Fife. As a matter of fact, the Duko of Fife's family never owned a rood of land in the county of Fife. The pretentions to a loneer uedieree whioh som« of din nro. decessors concocted in the most un blushing way were mercilossly exposed by Dr. William Cramond, the accom p...
A RAPID FIRE PISTOL. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
A RAPID FIRE PISTOL. Tho latest and most formidable small arm is the pistolet. Available either as a revolver or magazine rifle, it has been pronounced a success after the severest tests. Remarkable- as has been the development of firearms within tbo last half of the century just eloBed, it has been due throughout to the application of a single principle in mechanics. Tho secret of tho rapid-fire guns of the navy, army, and of the new small arm is identical. After the first discharge, tho ball having passed out of tho bore, a small quantity of the_ gas escapes into a cylinder containing a piston. This is forced baok by the pressure, putting in motion a mechanism which again loadB and discharges tho gun, and the process is repeated until the magazine is emptied of ammunition. The pistolet is in reality a pocket Mauser, the magazine holding a belt of twenty four cartridges. The power of penetration is muoh higher than in ordinary service revolvers. 3ighted for five hundred yards, it c...
THE BOGAMILDI EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
THE BOGAMILDI EXCHANGE. Thn liogamildi land exchange— a proposal to surrender an exchange- of 51,000 acres of land on Bnguniilrii ? has been engaging the attention of the local Land Board during the past four days.

Mr. Boughton. of Pullamalla wa, representing the Farmers and Settlers Association, attended' with a petition numerously signed in favour of the exchange, but the Board declined to admit the petitioners' evidenoe in view of the recent Land Appeal Court decisions, and it has been sent on to the Minister for Lands. The public generally are favourable to the exoliange. as it will open up for settlement a large area' of val...
"SHANTY" CIDER. What it is Made From. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
'SHANTY' CIDER. What it is Made From. Mr. W. S. Campbell writos to tho ' Agricultural Gazotto' of Now South Wales:— Some littlo timo ago when I was travelling by buggy along n dry and dusty road, in one of tho warm parts of New South Wales, one of tho horses knocked up, fo tho drivor thought wo had hotter rest awhilo at tho next place we camo to. This turned out to bo a sort of acconimodation wino «hop, tho sign ovor which informed thirsty travol lcrs ' Colonial wino and cider sold here.' Visions of delicious sparkling cidor rose up before me, and I teemed to become morn and moro thirsty until the horses woro turned out, when tho driver and I sped to tho small bar pre sided over by a rough-haired Hebo. The driver nroferrfld thn Blrnnir sweet Isabella E'apo wino common to tho district to the cool refreshing cidor which I had ordered. Hebo went somowhere to the back of tho building for my cider, aDd I had to romain fuming for a considerable time until at last sho appeared with an over...
The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
The Passing Show. At the present moment great excitement prevail* in the capitals of the several State6 over the tariff. Mr. Barton and his Col leagues have at last yielded up all that was in them in this respeot. The cat is out of tho bag and the opponents of the polioy of protection to Native industries are wild very wild— so wild, in faot, that they have started to raiso the dust in several directions. It's atrocious they say to saddle thn people of this young country with suoh duties, and the organs which proteRj to champion their causo are shrieking %yitb them. They havo not heen long in raising the old ory that tho tariff is one whioh taxes everything the poor man uses and let* the rioh go free— that all tho necessaries of life will ba dearer, whilst tho luxuries will nol bo taxed. Was there a tariff ever introduced bv which it was proposed to levy dnlieB without a statement similar to this being made. It is one of t^e moit popular ories tho freetraders havo, It never fails to...
BEARS AND TELEGRAPH-WIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
BEARS AUD TELEGRAPH-WIRES. In their search for food in certain districts of Norway, bears are said to be frequently cheated in a peculiar manner. These animals are, as is well known, extremely fond of honey : and their vicinity to a store of it is usually discovered by the humming sounds which the honey-makers emit. The sound of the telegraphic wires is not unlike the sound of a swarm of bees ; and when the sound reaches his ears, the bear at once begins to look out for business. Following the delusive sound, be finds that at the foot of the telegraph-post it becomes louder than ever ; and as he does not find the expected beehive, he very naturally thinks it must be under the heaD of stones which- are sometimes used to support the, post. These stones he at once begins to scatter about in all directions ; but though the humming is as distinct as ever, there is no trace of the honey-store to be found, and the hungry bear has only his labour for his pains. At first, this scattering of ...

ASTONISHING DISCOVERIES ABOUT THE EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
ASTONISHING DISCOVERIES ABOUT THE EYES. A series of most curiously interest ing investigations into the working of the human eyes have lately been com pleted by Professor Raymond Dodge, ol the Wesleyan University at Middle town, ? Connecticut, the results of which seem to overthrow many of the existing theories relating to sight. Mankind has been reading either written or printed characters for a good many years, for there are in scriptions in Egypt at least 7,000 years old, and yet it has remained for a scientist of the twentieth century to tell us for the first time how we read and what our eyes do as we scan the printed lines. Most people who have read the foregoing lines, (or instance, probably think that their eyes passed straight along the lines, reading the typo while their eyes moved. As a matter of fact, Professor Dodge has established the new axiom that the human eye is absolutely in capable of seeing anything whatever as long as the eye is moving, i.e., our eyes have to b...

THE OTHER ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
THE OTHER ONE. Br H. Thubston. Sweet little maid with winsomo eyes That laugh all day through the tangled hair ; Gazing with baby looks so wise Over the arm of the oaken chair, Dearer than you is none to me, Dearer than you thoro can bo none, Since in your laughing face I neo ? Eyes that tell of another one. Here, where the Brelight softlj glows, Sheltorcd and safe and snug and warm, What to you is tho wind that blows, Driving the sleet of the winter storm ? Round your head the ruddy light Glints on the gold from jour troBscs spun, But deep is the drifting snow to night Over the head of the other one. Hold me close as you sagely stand Watching tho dying embers shine ; Then shall I feel another hand That nestled once in this hand of mine ; Poor little hand, so cold and chill, Shut from the light of stars and sun, Clasping the withered roses still That hide the face of the sleeping one.

THE FEDERAL TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 12 October 1901
THE FEDERAL TARIFF. Thb topio'of the hour is, of eourao, the Federal Tariff which waa submitted to thn House of Representatives by the Treasurer, Sir George Turner on Tues day. It will be the topic of topics for Boom little time to come. At the present moment the opinion! of thn leading commercial men of the several States of the Union are being closely canvassed regarding it, and as usual in auoh cast's, strong differences of opinion seem to be held on the subject. There is one general opinion respecting it, however, and that is that it is a pro teotinnist tariff, and we fail to see why thn freetrado — more properly called foreign trade — organs should shriek so loudly as thoy are doing over that faofc. Surely it pn'y follows in the natural aours of things, that a Govern ment, Federal or otherwise, oomposed of members holding strong protectionist convictions would submit a protection ist tariff. Did Mr. Reid, the Leader of the Opposition, really think that Mr. Barton was being coer...
