Pro fessor John Milne,. chief of the seismo logy Institution at Shide, in the Isle of Wight. Amongst many other things it is told how a great commotion was once caused by a most remarkable re cord of "earthqultaes" the locale of which could not be fixed, although the seismograms were published and puzzled over by no end of wise men. What was the ex planation ?, Simply that a rcllick ing spider had introduced himself into Professor Milne's sanctuary and deve loped a particular interest in the swinging of the boom which is ad justed to register the sighs and throb blngs of poor troubled Mother Earth. It was. at night that the giddy creature disported himself, and this Is how he behaved: Hie would catch the end of the boom with his feelers and tug it over to one side as far as ever he could. Then he would anchor himself there and hold on like grim death until the b...

THRILLING FLOOD INCIDENTS Several dramatic incidents, Bays an American journal. were reported In con nection with the flood at Shawneetown. Ill.. on the 3rd ult.. but none possess more interest than the heroic attempts that were made by the telephone com pany's employes to give the alarm and summon relief. Cypress junction, which is five miles from the scene of the flood, was the first place to hear the news. The bulletin came by long-distance tele phone. It was of dramatic and horrible brevity. '"The levee has broken! The water Is rushing in from the bend a mile and a half up the river. .Already 210 people are drowned in the lower peart of the town, and-" At this point the operator sending the message ceased speaking, the wires went down, and all efforts to regain con nection with Cypress Junction failed.

A LITTLE SERMON ON HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

A LITTLE SERMON ON HABIT. This is what a minister has to say about habit etymologically: "lHabit is hard to remove. If you take away the first letter, "a bit" is left. If you take off another letter, you still have a "bit" left. While if you take off another, the whole of "it" remains. If you remove another it is not "t" totally used up. All of which goes to show that if you wish to get rid of;a bad hab!t you must shake it oil altogether."

AT MANILA AFTER THE BATTLE [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

AT MANILA AFTER THE BATTLE "The Times" special correspondent from Manila arrived :it Houng Kong on 12th May, and sent some interesting further details respecting the battle of Cavite. He states that the American commanders congratulated Admiral Montojo on the gallant, manner in which he fought. The admiral attributes his defeat. to the Madrid Government. He had applied for efficient.ships, but, had only. obsolete vessels, and no torpedoes except such as he couldmnake for him self. The correspondent says that the rebels looted Cavite immediately after the bombardment, the Spaniards fleeing to Manila. The Spaniards are not ex pected to capitulate. Rear-Admiral Dewey has Manila at his mercy, but it would be useless to bombard the city without sufficient troops to hold it. Renter's agent at IIong Kong says: The Linnet reports that the rebels are everywhere uncontrollable, and that anarchy now 'prevails throughout the whole of the Philippines. Admiral De wey is unwilling to bombard the c...

ABOUT FLYING. MAN'S UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

ABOUT FLYING:. 3MAN'S UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS-. Among the vain crowd of humas aspirations the most comically pathetic is perhaps that after flying. The de sire, analytically considered, is ob vlously a -particular form of that great general desire wherewith mankind is plagued, the desire to be other than we are. Regarding the henlhiness of this endeavor after flight there may be twr opinions. Granted that flying is Imn- possible, then this desire, according to the Greek adage, must be a sickness of the soul. But granted that flying tnmay yet be compassed by man, the aspiration cannot be termed altogether unwhole some, for its realisation would un doubtedly be a gain to the useful arts, and would make for the conveniene and well-being of mankind. Not only as a means but as an end in itself, flying was recommended to athletes by{ the ill-fated enthusiast, Otto Lillen thal, who accounted his own fairly suc cessful method "an exhilirating pas time." On the other hand, supposing the proble...

THE INVASION OF CUBA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

THE INVASION OF CUBA. One of the two United States Commis sloners in Cuba quotes General Gomez, the insurgent leader, as saying (a "Standard" telegram reports): - "The Spaniards are fools;. but they are cruel and brave, and it will take you Ameri cans six months. at least, to drive them off this island. Blockading is all right, but does not go far enough. I do not believe it will ever make Spain let go her grip of the island., After blockad ing for six months the Americans will be tired, and make terms to end their trouble. We do not want American sol diers. If Americans will only take the seaports, the Cubans caan take care of the rest provided they have the neces-? sary arms and ammunition. That is what we want from the UTited States ammunition, not men. -We want artil lery; we want rifles: we want cart ridges. There will soon be a union of my forces with.those of farcia. We expect to,have some pieched battles with the Spaniards. As it is at present, American soldiers would die of...

OLD AND YOUNG, She sat intent upon he-r hook With such a serious air; A charming young folks' magazine, Profuse with pictures rare. "How do you like it, Bessie dear?" I asked this maid of eight, Who looked mature beyond her years, And wore a look sedate. "I like it very much," she said, "It's nice as it can be; But,"-with a self-complacent air "It's 'most too young for me." Good Grandma Gay's a happy dame Who lives upon our street; She has a bright and genial face, And so serene and sweet. I saw her read this magazine, She sat and smiled and smiled At some quaint fairy-stories there, As pleased as any child. "It's such a pleasant book," she said. "And always bright and smart. How many of their clever rhymes I've learned to say by heart! "But then, in all this s~eding fine, There's surely bound to be Some things, you know, among the rest, Almost too old for me!"

THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

THE ORCHARD. If not already done, strawberry plants should be relieved of all dead leaves and the soil hoed between the rows; then aulched. Whatever material is used for the purpose (of course, stable manure is the best), it should be evenly spread be tween the rows and worked close around the collars, but avoid covering the crowns. The strawberry Is natu rally inclined to thrust Itself out of the ground, and the older the plantation the more marked does this become. When .mulched or top dressed as advised, the ill etfects of this are to a great extent neutralised, and the plants show their appreciation of this attention by emit ting a number of roots from the gollars. F'or young plants set out early a dusting of soot or wood ashes between the rows -will suffice. Where the planting of strawberries has been deferred it -should be .done as soon as the ground can be had in a favorable condition, that 3s assuming the ground has been - pre pared as previously advised.
