THE BATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 21 January 1884

THE BATHS. It willbe erecollected that an accident occurred at the baths some time since, through a man falling or.diving 'off the springboard- and injuring his :. spine.. We hear that this is likely to be made the - subject of an a?ion 'for damages on behalf of the+ . widow,. but from what we know of the circum stances it is not likely that such action will. be successful as .against the.

It would;be premature to say more.'now, but as the matter becomes developed we will report the result to our readers.: In the meantime we understand that Mr. Harweod. has the matter in . hand f.or. the Council.

bitntiEtf & '1[fo. JuTE.-From Professor S. Waterhouse's Report to the American department of-Agri culture concerning the cultivation of jute, we learn a great deal concerning that useful material. The value of the fibre. was first \ recognised at Dundee more than fifty years ago, and since that time the cultivation of the plant has increased not only in India, but in the United States. Jute can be com bined with cotton, linen, or silk, to imitate more expensive fabrics, and can be dyed a variety of tints. It is also largely used by paper.makers-and is extensively employed to make rough canvas which covers bales of cotton and other goods. The yield in India is from two to three. thousand pounds per acre; but the American grower, by replac. ing the rude tillage of India by. perfect machinery, is. able to do better than this, and at..the same: time to produce plante giving better fire.

G -A s i 'The Council have agreed with Mr. Stephed Hutchison, C.E., late of New Zealand for the establishment of Gasworks at Queenscliff. The main features of the arrangement are that Mr Hutchison is to have the exclusive use of the streets for lighting, purposes for twentv.one years, for which concession he will erect the works and supply the gas at his own risk and cost. A con- tract form has been submitted for approval, and revised by the Council's solicitor, Mr. Harwood.     Gas will be supplied at 15s. per 1000 cubic feet, in the first instance, to be reduced by 2s., 6d. on prompt payment every month, and by another 2s. 6d. when the consumption reaches 75,000 cubic feet every 24 hours. Gas will be a great boon to Qucenscliff in many respects; the lighting will be cheaper, safer, and.. more expeditious, andin' the larger houses it will p. no doubt be also used for cooking purposes. .The::: residual products will be used in completing our pathways and st...

One day the great novelist had to pay a draft of 5000 frs, If he could not pay it, the doors of the prison at Clichy were open for him. Walk ing along the Boulevards and meditating on his position, he came,across one of his fellow workers, as yet unknown,' who had only a few days before been admitted into the So. ciety of Dramatic Authors. His clothes were shabby, his hat of advanced age, he himself. was long and thin, with flat feet, and a walking stick in his hand. " I am saved," thought Dumas, and to the man he said, "Do you " want money?" " '; Of' cours.'" " Come along, then, and do as I bid yonu" They took a cab and drove to Scribe's, where Dumas instructed his companion to walk up and down the pavement while he went into the house.
