SIGNALLING IN BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

SICNALUNG IN BATTLE. In a naval battle, the success or failure of a fleet may depend on keeping open com munication between the different vessels of tbe squadron engaged. Owing to tbe fact that the surface of the sea would often be obscured by the smoke of battle, the difficulty of tfcre isapparenVand natal expertB havebeen kept busy devising some method by which the flagship can communicate with the other vessels of n squadron at all times and under all conditions. So far, nothing lias, been put in general service which meets this demand, but it is understood thnt there has lately been in vented a telephone, which it is claimed can be used -without wirer, and that signals can be projected by a vibrator on one vesBel against a receiver on another. The United States Navy Department is keeping the details of this new system carefully to itself, as it desires to have the invention for the exclusive use of their own Bhips in battle. The present method of communication is by the use of f...

A YOUNG FORTUNE HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

A YOUNG FORTUNE HUNTER. Nathaniel Hawthorne was a kind-hearted man as well us a great novelist. While he was consul at Liverpool a young Yankee walked into hiB office. The boy had left borne to seek his fortune, but evidently had not found it yet, although ho had crossed the sea in search. Homesick, friendless, nearly penni less, he wanted a passage home. The clerk said Mr. Hawthorne could not be seen, and intimated that the boy was not an'Ajnerican, but was trying Bteal a passage. ' The boy stuck to his point, and the clerk at last went to the little, room and said to Mr. Hawthorne: ,r . „ ,v ' Here's a boy who insists upon seeing you. He nays he's an American,' buWknow he isn't.' y- ,i . / Hawthorne came out, of tho;. room, and looked keenly at the eager, ruddy Jace of the boy. ' ?'?' '?'? ' You want a passage to^America?

A CURIOUS FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

A DUBIOUS FISH. The gobie, besides exhibiting an exagger ated case of swelled head and a deBire to perform brave feats of running and leaping, is content to live out of water for many days. The gobie is not a beautiful fish. It has an unprononneablcnarie, and lives a life of ease on cither land or water. Its real name is PeriphthalmuB Kaelreuten, but (he poor finny thing has other troubles, such as a. pair of eyeB which threaten to drop off at the slightest provocation, apda pair of fins which Nature evidently intended for feet, but, being culled away before her task was completed, left the fish with only two stumps decorated with a couple of peifectly useless fins. Pro fessor Holden, the well-known naturalist, writing of this queer creature in the ' Scien tific American,' bays it skips along the mud flats like a toad. It is so active that it is diilicult to catch.

WHEN CHIMES FIRST RANG. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

WHEN CHIMES FIJtST HANG. In Europe, at least, such a thing as a chime of bells was quite unknown until the fifth century, und in Britain it was at Croy land Abbey, in the year 960, a peal first was neuratrom the Jotty steeple. Not for cen turies afterwards were chiming bells any thing but an expensive and curious luxury. In the Cathedral of Antwerp there is to day a peal of no Jess than 90 bells. Elaborate chimes are rung upon them every half-hour. To ring the complete changes on a peul of twelve bells at the rate of two sounds a Bee ond would take ninety-one years. Pa, what 1b patrimony ? - It is that which ib inherited from the father my sod. Oh, and I suppose matrimony is inherited from the mother. — -

HUMOURS OF DONEGAL. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

HUMOURS OF DONEGAL. A Wolli of a boy inuBt be JamcB Mac manus (' Mac '), the author of ' The Humours of Donegal,' published a few days ago by Mt. 1'. Fiiilwr Unwin. He hius a rare faculty of diverting story-writing, a gift of unstrained humour, and a thorough know ledge and svaxpalhetic grasp^of Irish life and character, which makes his taleB most de lightful reading. ' Mac ' has already won wide-spread encomiums for his 'IMiroll Don egal ' and other stories, and even in Ireland it has been Baid of him that he should be as great a favourite with Irishmen as Crockett and Barrie are with Scotchmen. The pre sent volume contains seven lively stories which will certainly enhance hiB position as an exponent of Irish humour. One of the but is ' How Paddy M'Garrity did not get to thegauger,' but ' Coruey Higarty's in terview with the Devil ' runs it very close, and eo does the stury of ' Terry M'Gowan and Father Luke.' Here is a taste of the author's quality from the last-named. Teny has a ...

MATCH MAKING IN THE FAR EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

MATCH MAKING IN THE FAR EAST. The above heading,of course, bears no sort , of relation to marriage preliminaries — bear- '? ing io mind the terrible penalties enacted in j ' Xlie Miliado ' for love-making which has not an absolutely serious and bona-tide pur pose — but refers to making what are popu . larly styled 'lucifers,' in far Japan. A writer in ' Enffineerine ' savs: — It is onlv about twenty years since match-making in I foreign style was introduced into Japan, j and for some years the progress wbjch was made was very remarkable, and the profits great. At present Japan not only supplies her own wants, but also has a very large ' Burplus for exportation. Still the competi- . tion has become so keen that few of the fac tories pay a dividend on their capital. lu 1884 tbe export was only 9,000 gross of boxes, to-day twenty million gross would be nearer the mark. Of late there lias been an over-production, and the Matchmakers' Union have agreed to limit their output in order to k...

THE HOME OF AN EXTINCT BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899

THE HOME OF AN EXTINCT BIRD. There iB a little rocky island off the coast of Newfoundland which is called Funk iBland, and is interesting as being tlio spot where that curious bird, the Great Auk, was finally exterminated. The poor silly birds used to sit in rows upon the rocks, unable to fly, and too tame tu worry themselves about tbe approach of cneiniea. So absurdly tame were they that, like the fur seals on the Frebyloff Islands, they were simply driven like sheep to where evcr their slayers wished, and tfacro killed. : It is recorded that on one occasion thrpe were driven up a plank on to a boat, und carried quietly off to h ship without attempt ing to escape. Bodies of the Great Auk ore still occasionally, dug up from the guano on l''unk Island in a mummified condition.

An order has just been placed by a noted German firm of pencil makers with » California lumber company for a large quantity of sequoia wood, which is found lo be tlie best wood now available for pencils. The sequoia is tlie Me tree of California. It. sci-nis too bad that tin- grand old giants should be sacrificed, and especially that their end should be lead pencil shavings.

TEETH MUTILATION. ft is curious to wliat an extent the mutila tion of teeth goes on among savage nations. On the west coast of Africa u large propor tion of the teeth are deliberately broken when children reach a certain iige. In Peru, on the Congo; and among the Hottentots, the custom exists of extracting the two front teeth of domestic servants. On the Upper Nile many negroes have all thuir best teeth extracted in order to destroy their value as slaves, thus making it not worth while for the slave traders to cony them off. Among the Malaya teeth are stained various colours. A bright red nnd a bright blue are nut un common, and even u bright green is pro duced with the aid of arsenic and lemon juice. ,.-. ?

Ab warm weather draws near face powder becomes almost a necessity, fur a shiny, greasy complexion will spoil the fi-ishen and prettiest toilet imaginable, says an American journal. ^ Few women are aware of the value of soft tissue paper, such as men use when shaving, if nsed to remove moisture and ' shine ' from the skin before powder is npplied. Soap and warm water, with a thorough rinsing in clear, warm water, must, of course, be used once a day; after that the paper should be applied whenever the face needs cleaning. The case for holding this paper should be very liKe the shriving paper oases we have been making for years for brothers and cousins and uncles, but just double the size, so that each sheet may be as large as a full sized handkerchief.
