An afternoon's shopping iu Itegent-sireet or Hond-street would lie to her enuni, but when she can pick up something choice iu the wav -uf pumas, .something eccentric in the mon key line, or something really out of the way iu lions, she is happy. She has al ready no mean zoological collection in Paris as it is, but this week she has made a striking addition to her list of pets.

BRIEF MENTION. ? » Fire ! Rain ! Dust and Wind ! How true it is that we know not what an hour may bring forth. Up till midnight on Saturday the Arcade was like a bee-hive — full of business activity. Three hours later its inhabitants had fled for their lives, and the whole block was a heap of ruins. The Narromine Brass Band acquitted itself admirably at the social on Friday nigbt last, and in the street on Saturday night.

FIRE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; FIRST BIG BLAZE IN NARRO MINE. ELEVEN BUSINESS PLACES AND RESIDENCES TOTALLY DESTROYED. THE ARCADE IN RUINS GREAT LOSS OF PROPERTY. DAMAGE ESTIMATED AT £5,000. Narromine up to last Sunday morn ing possessed au unique record Sin its immunity from fire, not a single case of the kind beiug on record since its inception, and this is the more remark able when it is remembered that most, if not all, the buildings are construc- ted of wood, and that wood perhaps the most inflamable of any colonial timber, tor pine seems to fairly reek with resin ; a log of it, even though small, being very hard to quench when once fairly well lit. Another source of danger, which up to the time men- tioned above, it must be admitted, we have escaped more by luck than good management, was the very objection- able practice of lighting open fires in back yards for rubbish burning pur- poses. Nothing could be more proba- ble than for the wind to b...
OUR ELASTIC EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899
OUR ELASTIC EARTH. We very rarely realise how easily the crust of this seemingly solid earth bends and curves under the strains it is constantly sub- jected to. For instance, how many realise that there are earth tides? similar, only of course, on a smaller scale, to ocean tides. Small earthquakes, or rather earth tremors, take place without our noticing them. A pair of pendulums, says a well known scientist, placed on two tall buildings on opposite sides of a city street, will show that when a heavy vehicle, a traction engine for instance passes down the road, its weight will pull the houses over towards one an- other quite out of the perpendicular.
