Seasickness. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 1 May 1914

Seasickness. That the crews of trading steamers „ Should be prostrated by sickness—some fiimes to such an extent that the vesse't - have to return, to port—is a fact ' which has grim luimor in it, but the ne cessity in itself is 110 more humorous j .than-the custom, to -which some people j supposed Mr. Plimsoll's agitation had , put an end, of sending ships to sea inad ' equately manned. A deputation from the National Seamen's and Firemen's Union lately mnde a very striking state dent on this subject to the president of: the board of trade, in which it was BUggested that many of the collisions that are now so frequent were caused by the shipping of incompetent and under manned crews. We believe that these practices.are carried 011 to a far greater extent than is commonly supposed, and we know of a case in which a huge trad ing vessel was recently sent on a voyage to Australia abort bv several men and „ - one officer of her full complement. -St, Janm' Gazette.

The Great Advance in Locomotion. Towards the close of the seventeenth 'Vsentury a great advance was made in locomotion. The trip to Bath from Lon "don, which was made by stage conch at the rate of twenty miles a day, was sud denly expedited:.by reducing the length of the "voyage" to three days, or about thirty miles a day. The enterprising concern which made this important in crease in speed called its coaches "fly ing machines," and the Londoners gazed at them in open-mouthed wonder There is a vast difference between this rate of stage coach speed and that made by the overland route, which for many .years put its stages through mi a hun dred miles a day schedule between Mis souri'river points and California.
