MISCELLANEOUS. HOW TO TEMPER STEEL. All Parts Must Be Heated and The[?] Cooled Simultaneously. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 9 August 1898
MISCELLANEOUS. HOW TO TEMPER STEEL All Party Mlnst Be Heated antd Then Cool ed Slmultstneously. To harden a long, thin piece of steel, such as a small French clock pinion, without getting it out of shape is a very difficult and hazardous operation, but may lo done. The first necessity, if an open fire is used, is to have a uni form heat, though it is preferable to heat the steel in a brass tube filled with charcoal. The tube must have the per foration not much larger than the object to be hardened and must be of consider able solidity, as the charcoal without a good body of metal would be a poor con ductor of heat. The fluid to be used in the process of hardening should be lin seed, cottonseed, or, best of all, castor oil mixed with kerosene in proportion of one-half each. It has been observed that small steel objects spring more in hard ening by hcing plunged into a thin quickly cooling Iluid, such as water, eta By the use of castor oil we have a thick, slow cooling fluid, while th...
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 9 August 1898
HERE AND THERE. The great election fight in Sydney is over, and in taking a retrospective look at the doings of the past couple of weeks I am constrained to admit that life is made up of small things There is a spicy flavor about some of the incidents connected with the election addresses which. deserve a place in history. Fancy the grotesque figure of the portly George Houston Reid, "standing with his face and waistcoat smothered in flour," I wonder if the ubiquitous "phiz" taker happened to be present, and if he secur ed a snapshot of this wondrous .sight. According to accounts George must have been indeed a "white man" at the close of the-to him-memorable meeting ear ly in the week. Eggs are delicacies to which ,I confess a weakness but would rather, as I am certain nmost people would, not have them literally "chuck ed" at me, more particularly if I hap pened:to have just donned a spotlessly white shirt, which my esteemed laun dress had taken infinite pains to polish. I don't pre...

S'e were in a country (Japan) which we had looked forward to cycling in ever since leaving London. We felt the fascin ation of this far-eastern land steal over ris. There was a. fairy-book quaintness about the people. The villages were like little pictures out of an artist's book. -And the cycling, how exhilarating scudding like' the very wind-how mag nicent! WVe were in the wheelman's paradise. Our first evening we ran into a town Scalled Takeo. There was a dapper little person, like, a Parisian gendarme, in - tight jacket, tight trousers, a jaunty cap, with a number of brass buttons about him, and a lung sword dangling at his side. We spoke to him. That is, we said one of the two Japanese words we then knew, "'yadoya," which means inn. and then we pointed to our mouths and s- aid the second word we knew, i"tabe mona," which means food. He bowed atiflly and offic!a...

CARLOTTA, A CUBAN GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 9 August 1898
CARLOTTA, A GUBAN GIRL. By Elizabeth Hartnan. Tile sun bltizetl down pitilessly on the glaring sea and on the sandy beach. The palms whic-h towered high above the Senorita Carlotta Delgado's white cottage looked dried by the lhet, but within the cottage there was an almost mysterious coolness, so strikingly in contrast was it. with the outside air. Thie Shutters were closed; a bowl of roses on a polished table in the drawing room breathed forth aL delicate, refresh ing fragranece. Seated near the table, in a high lacked. elablorately carved chair, was tile Senorita Carlotta. She was small, but her slight figure was erect, the poise of her head so perfect, that she looked a proud young queen. HIer black eyes stared fixedly s: raight before that they might not see the Spanish officer, Captain de Seguera. who stood at the other side of the table.. "Your little home Is as cool as a grot to," said the captain. "It seems like a heaven here." "Not to me," said Carlotta, with a meaning glan...

THE PRESIDENT'S DINNER. LARGE AND REPRESENTATIVE GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 9 August 1898
THE PRESIDENT'S DINNER. LARGE AND REPRESENTATIVE GATHERING. The dinner at which the President of the Warragul Shire-Councillor J. L. Parkes - entertained his fellow councillors shire officials, and many other representative and leading men of the town and surrounding districts, at the Orient Hotel on Wednesday evening last, was one of the largest and most representative of the kind that has assembled in Warragul since it ceased to constitute a portion of the Buln Buln municipality. The occa sion was the revival of a custom that has in recent years fallen into abey ance and under which the President of the Shire invited his confreres and prominent public men to celebrate his accession to the Presidential Chair in the manner customary to the Brit isher in all parts of the world. The non-observance of this hospitable practice during the past few years is partially due to the ruthless way in which the President's allowance has been curtailed and partially to the private economy that has...
THE RAINBOW FEATHER; OR A TERRIBLE PROPHECY. CHAPTER XIV.—(Continued). [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 9 August 1898
THE RAINBOW FEATHER; OFI A TERRIBLE PROPHECY. EY FERGUS tHUME, 'Author of "The Mystery of a Hansom Cab," Ets., Etc. CHAPTER =IV.-(Continued). He hurried away,- and Paul stood looking after him, wondering hoew the discovery of a dyed feather could affect the case. Had some bloodthirsty per son come down from London especially to murder Milly, and had the rainbow feather been left as the sign manual of the work, after the fashion of a secret society? Paul smiled at the fantasy of the idea. HIlly did:not know anyone in London--or, rather, had not known, since the poor girl must now be spoken of in the past tense-and- the fame of her beauty could not have spread be yond the environs of ,arnstead and Marborough. The tragedy of her death had given her a fame much wider. .After meditation Paul found himself unable to explain Herne's conversation; and for the time being he put the mat ter of the squire's departure to London out of his mind. His attention was fur ther distracted by the appro...
