- THE GERMaN DISLIKE FOR THEE. ENGLISH. (Par. Ma.oLaeoazsrr, 4a aarr.L) My Beriln correspondent writes :-"The new German Emperor Friedrich still lives, and, what ls more, promises to live for some lime yet. This is the crime which Sir Morell Mackenzie is aconsed of, and hino ilit lachrye min the German Conservative, I feudal. reactionary Press. But for the skill, he assidaity, and the great knowledge as well as tact of the English physician, the I present German Emperor Friedrich would not reside in Schlose Charlottenburg, but would rest in the Mausoleum of that place, a few yards only from where his father now lias on his cata falque. The German party, which for.the last ten months or longer had considered it a matter of absolute certainly that, when the old Emperor should close his eyes, his immediate successor would be 'Prinz Wilhelm, der deutsche Soldat,' and not the amiable, liberally-minded Crown Prince Freidrich Wilhelm, 'the Englishman,' as he ase then nicknamed-that small b...

The Caloriphone. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 19 May 1888
The Caloraphone. This name has been given to a very wonderful but not altogether novel-nor,~Ua yet, perfected-apparatus, devised by a young French soldier and licencides sciences, .. Leon de Pontois. According to "'The Electrie.l Engineer," the object is to obtain telephonic communications without the:aus of aconducting wire, the distance between the communicating stations being comparg. lively very great. The inventor, in fact, speaks of an apparatus, weighing 10'5 kilos, and coating from 80fr. to 100fr., which will comtoenicate through a distance of ten French leagues, The system by which this result-which for the present we are fain to accept with a grain of salt-may be obtained is summarlsed as follows :-The conversion into luminous undulations of the vibrations impressed by the voice to a telephone plate; the receptio0 of these undulations by an optical apparatus of great power; their conversion intO calorific undulations; and their reaction upon a eubstance, sucah as selenium,...

WHY THEY FOUGHT STANLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 19 May 1888
WHY THEY FOUGHT STANLEY. During Stanley's first great trip down the Congo, his little parry for hundreds of miles heard almost constantly the thunder of the big war drums. At many a bend of the river they saw the canoes of the natives pushing out from the shore filled with howling savages, bent on the destruction of the little band, who wished for nothing so much as to glide peacefully down stream to the sea. It is not always easy to fathom the exact motives that in pire the acts of unoivilised peoples, and now that the whites are well established on the Con o. some of them have inquired with great interest of toe natives what they thought of Stanley when he first appeared to them, and why they gave him such an unfriendly reception. A conversation that the Rev. Mr. Bentley had with a native at Bolobo on this subject a while ago gives an interesting insight into the worsinge of the savage mind. " Why did the Bayansi attack the white man !" Mr. Bentley asked. "Oh, we did not attack hi...

.FIVE. LIONS IN -THE-PATH. (GA~urOaNs rares) The California mountain Ikm, so called because he does not resemble a lion and is the boua coward of the oat trihe, is not " o dinarily a dangerous beast to enoonnter. a Unless he is very hungry, or in the bad ' temper peculiar to male animals in the I mating saetne, he will not attack openly a twelve.year-old child. At sight of a man i he will skulk into the brush and get away as 5 fast as he can. When several lions are inl company, however, their boldness is vasty I increased.

A PROPELLER FOR SAILING SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 19 May 1888
A PROPELLEK FOR SAIuING SHIPS. The " Engineer and Iron Trades Adver tiser" slates that there was exbiblted last wee? in the Royal Exchange, Glasgow, a ds of-a f a mr-m.nssd ..Oll a .ablp,.8l.d with apatent feathering propeller suitable for sailing abips. It is a well known fact amongst sailing-ship owners that much valuable time is lost by sailing vessels getting becalmed, when possibly a few miles' stesming would enable them to get clear of the "calm belts." Many attempts have been made to overcome this difficulty, but so far without much success. The arrangement of the propeller put forward by Captain Macgowan Is certainly a very ingenious one, and one which may deserve a trial. The machinery for driving the propeller has hitherto been an obstacle, as the space taken up is so valuable in a sailing ship, but it is stated that this will be solved.
What Became of a Lic. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 19 May 1888
What Bccamo of a Lio. First, somebody told it, Then tOe room wouldn't hold it So the busy tongues rolled it Till they got it outeide ; When the crowd came across it, And never onze lost it, But tossed it and tossed it Till it grew long ana wide. From a very small lie, sir, It grew deep and high, sir, Till it reached to the skyr sir, And frightened the moon; For she hid her sweet face, sir, In a veill of cloud.le, sir, At toe dreadful disgrace, sir, That had happened at noon. This lie brought forth others, Dark sisters and brothers,' And fathers and mothers- A terrible crew ; And while headlong they hurried The people they flurried, And troubled and worried, As lies always do. And so, evil-boded, This monstrous lie goaded. Till at last it exploded In smoke and in shame ; When from mad and from mire The pieces flt w higher, And hit the sad liar. And killed his roond name ! -Ms3 M. A. KIDDER.
