At the annual meeting of the American society of Civil Engineers, held the other day in New York, a number of scientific men from all partB of the United States were present, and a report by a commitee of the society in favour of reforming tho or dinary system in reckoning time was strongly supported. The committee were of opinion that it was expedient to abandon tho division of the day into halves or 12 hours each, and to adopt a single series of hours numbered consecutively from one to twenty four. A resolution to this effect was ortried all but unanimously. A cold damp Lou so will sometimos give [i person a soro throat; but nothing will jive an opera-singer a sore throat quicker than a light houso.

Select Poetry. THE AGED OUTCAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 5 April 1884

Select TEE AGED OUTCAST. The light is not within her eyes; But 011 her tatter'd hair The (lemon of blind misery lies In iufinito despnir; She has no home, she has no frieud, She has no hope on earth ; The weary years in vain extend From that which gave her birth. Thrust her beneath some mossy stone, And not within a jail; There she will lie with God alone, In hope that may not fail; Broad has she not, nor raiment, such As Woman fallen low, As bitterest misery deigns to touch, E'en in its abject woe* Is there no law by which we may, In very charity, Take out the suppliant wretch and say, Never leave her thus to die ? As inoh by inch the years creep on, Midst wants, and groans, and fears, A greater mercy would be done To slay her in her tears. God ! if Thou rul'st this whirling hell Of heartless humau-kind; Say, is it like thy Christ, or well, That she no friend should find ? Filth-clad, and fed on aconite, Has she no prayers to raise ? No thanks to give to Thee, despite The anguish o...

A MOTHER-IN-LAW. NOT THE EVERY-DAY KIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 5 April 1884

A MOTHER-IN-LAW\ not the eveuy-day kind. I married one evening in autumn, A rosy-cheeked, rollicking girl; Her eyes were as bright as midsummer, Her teeth were like pebbles of pearl. The presents were early presented, As handsome as ever I saw, But donors quite frequently whispered, " Beware of your mother-in-law." I rented a one-stoty cottage, Just out of the noise of the town, And happy as orioles mated, We settled contentedly down. And somehow it presently happened That bundles and dainties I saw Pass into the door of our kitchen— Sweet gifts from my mother-in-law. Sometimes when my labour was heavy, And wages exceedingly low, I sank on my pillow discouraged, Bewailing ray trials and woe ; But trouble was suddenly lifted, And icy ill-humour would thaw, When round rolling dollars would jingle— From the hand of my mother-in-law. But once on a cold winter morning. When snow mantled valley and hill, The wife I had cherished so fondly, Lay silent and spheechless and still; And I with ...

So much has been spoken, writtou, and sung about a " freo press " that people have come to accept the term in a sense almost too literal.

Ho gets the few words, but he never gets ready to advertiso. Two tickets admitting lady and gent to-.,the • " G.B.M.X.T.'s grand ball" are expected, to produce a six line local, and a quarter of a column description of tho ladies' toilets after the bail is over.
