Small Bon Balls. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 March 1892

Small Bor. Balls. Recent experiments on the effoets in the human body of the new French balls (Lebel gun) have shown many interesting facts. The ball of the Lebel gun is a small one (8 millimeters diameter, instead of 11), which travels faster than those formerly used (570 meters per second, inetead of 450), and is clad in a dress of Germsn silver, which gives it a greater hardness. It produces much smaller wounde, and these are more lhmited than with other bhll; bonts are not so much shattered; ,nod the fact t??t the ball does not (iup to the distance of 1200 meters) remain in the body, renders the treatment mush easier. The Lebel boll may be cor eidered as a humanitarian and philanthropic iontrumant. in a lar measure...........

Sta,-I, for one, appreciate a man having sufficient confidence in his integrity and ability to stand up and express himself fear lessly at a public meeting. But when such is done without practically any sort of back. bone, that person should he content to be seen and not heard.

The Problem of Artificial Lighting. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 March 1892

The Problem of Artificial Lighting. In the course of a series of artioles setting forth the modern view of electricity, Pro fessor OliverJ. Lodge arriveoat theconclu Sion that "light is an electrical disturbacce, and that light waves are excited by electrical oscillations;" which conclusion he believes musteltimately havepractical import. Pro lessor Lodge remarks that our present systems of making light artificially are waste ful and ieffiective. We want, he says, a certain range of oscillation--between 7,000 and 4,000 billion vibrations per second; no other is useful to us, because no other has any effect uopn our retina. But we do non knowhow to produce vibrations at this rate. We can cause strings to vibrate one or two hundred or a thousand times per second, with the result of emitting a pure tone of definite pitch; but to get much faetor rates of vibration, we have to fall back upon atoms. Wr usOw ..oe new,,. vIrae oy0 woat we coll heating the substanca; but the vibrations are t...

AND Rrenv CREss Tires. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, MARCH II, £892. On the Hustings. TsouoH Mr Huar can hardly take. rank as an oratorical star of the first magnitude, he has marvellous capa bilities as a political diplomatist. His speech last Saturday night was in noth ing so interesting as the study it af forded of the art of separating the popular from the unpopular side in the perplexities of a momentous crisis. From beginning to end it strikes the reader as not inspired by loyal regard to great, abstract principles, but as de termined by a secret reference to those standards of thought and feeling which are calculated to weigh most with the commonest judgment. His attitude, both in his manner and in his ut- 1 terance, was thatjof the able strategist, who, eighteen yars ?apor;nnna hanre the hustings has made a consummate master of the springs of human con duct; and who with the calm self-pos session of a practiced musican, well ac. quaintel with the whole registers of men's p...
