AN EXPENSIVE ESTABLISHMENT. SOKE returns lately prepared by the Italian Ministry of War are interesting, since they bIIOW how enormous the supplies of weaponb and munitions of war are which even a sccond ratc military Power now considers it neces sary to be provided with.

FlRE-ARMS V. THE POLICE FOR PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 15 November 1879
FlRE-AllMS V. THE POLICE FOR PROTECTION. Tiie practice of carrying revolver* is be coming far too common in America. Speak ing of the "pistol mania" in tlio United States, tlic A'ation observes Hint, vvliat with carrying pwtols and keeping piHloln ami thinking of pistols, that reliance on the police which occupies or ought to occupy, eo large a place in civilised life has been with a large number even of the most rcspcctablc people seriously diminished. One of the most strik ing and most barbarous features of Southern life is the fact that wlieu a man hears Uiat somebody else is looking for him to kill him, far from going for a warrant and hav ing him nrrcstad and bound over to keep the pcacc, lie gets a pistol or a knife and lies in wait, and than the two stab or sboot each other. This sort of ineidant rarely occurs in New York; but larger numbers than is generally supposed of peaceable well-behaved citizcns carry pistols in tlieir pockets on the theory that they may be engaged in ...
DISSEMINATING GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 15 November 1879
DISSEMINATING GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION. GEOGBA.PUT (says on English paper) is n weak point with Uic French nation. The Germans, when they invaded France, were found to know the countiy better, and to possess better maps of it than Uic natives themselves. Culture in France, indeed, seems to be in the possession of the few, and that probably iB one cause of the dangerous instability of the Government. The men in power appear to have discovered thin, and are evidently doing all they can, despite priestly opposition and intrigue, to strengthen themselves and the country by educating the masses. One of the expedient* adoptod for popularising science in the army partakes of the ludicrous, suggesting as it docs the " moral pocket-liandkcrclier'1 fur the elevation of the little niggers whom Dickens has made fiunouF. The French soldiers, we arc told, have for sonic time had pockcl-handkcrchicfs Fcrved out tn them, on ciich of which in printed a mnp of Frame and iti. principal uk'uiu-, and no...
The Western Champion. Vita sinc literis mors est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, NOV. 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 15 November 1879
$Itc &lt;|lmmpi(in. Vita vine litfri* mortt wt* BLACKALL, SATURDAY, NOV. 15. WE hare no desire to raise any impedi ment in the way of carrying out the Divisional Boards Act, as it is our fixed opinion that local taxation is the best and most impartial way of providing funds for carrying on the minor public works of the colony. If the divisions had been arranged so that the head quarters of each might have been fixed ip some central town, with an area of country over which it would have been possible for . Board to exercise proper supervision, the people all over the colony would have readily fallen in with the views of the Government. But a glance at the boundaries as given in our telegrams this week, will show that the local divisions are so arranged that it will be utterly impossible for any Board to cany out a system of local govern ment. We cannot conceive what could have possibly actuated the Government to divide the western country into such enormous divisions. If a co...
OVERSTONE V. ROTHSCHILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 15 November 1879
OVEB9TONE V. ROTHSCHILD. OKDEU ttic Leading "A Banker's Unfile," the Boett gives the fallowing anecdote, in wlilch the two greatest (pecuniary) poten tates of the age were concerned, on what it regards as good authority At the time of the last great commercial crisis, when the money market was just beginning to show signs of "tightness," Messrs. Bothschild lodged a large sura (£800,000, we believe) in Lord Ovcretone's hank (then Jones, Lloyd & Co.). This seemed so strange a procedure that it aroused the noble Lord's suspicions, and he bid liis cashier pat the money away in a parcel by itself and await further orders, which was accordingly done. Meanwhile money grew more and more in demand, and just when the pressure was at its height Messrs. Bothschild drew a cheque for the £300,000, hoping, 110 doubt, thereby to embarrass their puissant rival. So far from that, Lord Orcntone had the exquisite satis faction of returning the parcel of money pre cisely in the state in which li...

RESUSCITATING THE DROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 15 November 1879
RESUSCITATING THE DROWNED. A Fbenchman lias tlic credit of inventing an apparatus for niding in the resuscitation of persons apparently drowned, or who from any other causc have been temporarily deprived of animation. It consists of tt cylinder of slicct-iron large enough to contain tlie body of an adult person. It is closed nt one end, and the inanimate individual is inserted, feet foremost, in the receptacle as far as the iicck, round which then: is placed a padded diaphragm, fastened to (lie cylinder so as to be air-tight. An air-pump, attached to an opening in the tube, creates a partial vacuum, and then the outer atmosphere, by its own pressure, forces its way into the lungs by the mouth and nostrils, which arc left exposed. By a reversed action of the pump the air is allowed to re-enter the cylinder, and respiration is thereby re-estab lished. A glass plate inserted in the iron casing enables the operator to watch the movements of the chest, which rises and falls as in life wi...
