ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 30 April 1886

ATAMOSPIIEl C PRENS SURE. Independently of the tendency to rain orothorwiso, variablopressureof theatinos phero acts upon the sensatious. When op pression is felt from such a cause, the common notion is that thue air is heavier than usual. Tho fact is just thoe rovorso. When pressure is more than the average, it has the otfect of bracing up and com pressingthe nmuscuhir system, which causes an extra solidity, strength, and onergy with which we are all familiar in excop tionally bright, clear weather, when the pressuro is greatoat. On theo contrary, when the pressure is at its lowest, the " muscular system, having less support, be comes relaxed and deficinbt in strength and energy, and the .sonse of lassitudo is mistaken finrjoppression from supposod - xtra weight of the atmosphore, whlch is sthen lighter than usual.

An excellent wicket had beotn prepared, and as the visiting team had among them some exceellout bats, and the local toeam was strongthened by the inclusion of three new bowlers in Hard wieke, Hughes, and Craig, an exciting match was looled forward to.

PRINCE BISMARCK. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 30 April 1886

- FPRINCE BISMARGK. The German Ohancellor's recent utter ances in the Prussian House of Deputies -among the most important lie has made in recent years-have called forth in the German prose numerous estimates of his power as an orator. The H[amburger Correepondcna especially lhas seized the occasion for a thoughtful study of Prince Bismarck's rhetorical style. As a speaker, we are told, Prince Bismarck is happiest when he speaks unprepared. It is worse when, as he speaks, lie rum mages among diplomatle papers, though he can be not less tedious when he roads documents. He knows, however, when to break the tedium by a biting interpo lation, and in the drieststyleof documnnt to introduco a refreshing arabhsquo of his own. Bismarck's voice is not very flexible, comprising no great scale of tone; it does not exactly sound like wood, but at the same time the tone is not that of well-sounding metal. His mode of expression is radically different from that of the ordinary Parliamentary speak...

HENRY GEORGE ON TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 30 April 1886

HENRY GEORGE ON TA RIFF. ,·Having made it clear that tariffs do not advainco wages, he admits that free-trade cannot permanently advanco them. Wages tend downward. The degrada tion of labor in most countries is great. Why 'is this? "But what," it will bo asked, "would be .the gain to working men ? Will wages increasoe ?" For some time, in some occupations, and to some. extent, yes. For the spring of industrial energy consequent upon the removal of'. the dead weight of the tariff would for a time make .tihe demand for labor brisker and employment steadier, and in occupa tions where they can combibio working men would have better opportunity to somewhat ihcreaso their wages, as, since the abolition of the protective tariff iin England, many trades there have done. But eveirfrom the total abolition of pro tection, it is impossible honestly to pre dict any general and any permanent in crease of wages, or any general and per-'. ianent improvement in the condition, of the working classes....

A CRUEL DISAPPOINTNMENT. The other day a royal carriage, con- taining an elderly gentleman and three ladies, who intimated, that they had come to look over the establishment, drove up to the Telegraph newspaper office in Lon- don. The hour was early, and none of the chiefs were about. It was the period of the twenty-four hours when a news- paper enjoys as much repose as is per- mitted it. The person in charge rose to the occasion. Not knowing his guests, but realising that they were persons of the highest rank, he conducted them into the editorial rooms while arrangements were made for showing them the wonder- ful machinery and appliances which are the pride of this particular establishment. In due course the visitors were conducted over the different departments and defe- rentially instructed as to the meaning of the various objects and arrangements. Finally came the supreme moment when the visitors book was to be signed, and curiosity was to be satisfied whether the visitors were ...
