The Sultan and His Subjects. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

The Sultan and His Subjects, The Ottoman Committee of " Young Turkey" have issued a pamphlet in which they complain bitterly of the treatment meted out by the Sultan to his subjects. The eriters state that they do not desire to minimise the actual state of terror which prevails in Armenia to-day, but they wish to point out that "the tyranny which is reigning to-day in the pro. vineesis not limited to the Christian popula tion but affects every sort of unfortunate subject of the Sultan." Respecting the late persecution, the pamphlet says: Had Professor Theomaiane and 1Mr Kayayan, who were bath condemned to death by that mock Turkish tribunal, been 'larks, mnstead of being Armenians, they would surely have been despatched to some other planet in order to join the unfortunate Midhat; but being Armenians, the Sultan bestowed on them his Imperaul clemency, of which he is so food of boasting, but the intelli gent observer knows well that the so-called clemency only appeared after her Mlaj...

Ladies' Gossip [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

Ladies' Gossip Madame Patti is at present busily engaged in rehearsing a new one-act opera, entitled "Gabriella,' for production in the provinces during her forthcoming tour. Signor Pizzi, the composer of the opera, is a guest at Craig y-nos Castle during the rehearsals. The Queen has presented the Maharajahof i Bhownugger with a mnniature of herself set in diamonds, and accompanied by an auto. graph letter. The Queen's gift was not pre sented in England. but was a pleasant uar prise which the Maharajah found awaiting him on his arrival at Bombay. Her Majesty a long time ago expressed a wish that Signor Tosti should write twosmall operettas, to be performed by her daughters and ladies of the Court at Windsor and Os borne. One of these works will be ready for productionby Christmas. There died last week, at the "mother house" of her order in Brittany, the foundress of the "LittleSisters of the l'oor."

A Steam Quadricycle. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

A Steam Quadricycle. Imagine two safety bicycles, the wheels about the size of ordinaries, joined catamaran fashion, with a small boiler and engine and a complicated rigging of machinery hanging between the rear wheels, a seat for two persons up in front, with a steering wheel for the driver to grasp instead of reins, and the carriage is revealed. Ten miles and more an hour is the speed expected, and hill climbing will be as easy as rolling off a log. The little boiler will stand more than 100 lb. of steam, generated from a three jet naphtha flame, the fuel being carried in a tube bent around over the boiler like a stove-pipe with elbow joints. It holds four gallons — enough for a seven hours' run. A ten-gallon tank of water is also packed away in the works. The engine is vertical, 2 x 4 cylinder, four- inch stroke, working on a crank shaft to which is attached a balance wheel, and a chain wheel, from which the power is com- municated to the rear drivers. The throttle valve, steam w...

Little Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893

Little Things. A good.bye kiss is a little thing, With your hand on the door to go, But it takes the venomout of the sting Of a thoughtless word or a cruel fling That you made an hour ago. A kiss of greeting is sweet and rare After the toils of the day, Bat it smoothes the furrows out of the care, And lines on the forehead you once called fair, In the years th'at have flown away. 'Tie a little thing to say, " You are kind, I love you, my dear," each night, But it sends a thrill through the heart, I find, For love is tender, as love is blind, As we climb life's rugged height. We starve each other for love's caress We take, but do not give; It seems so easy some soul to bless, Bat we dole love grudgingly, less and less, Till 'tis hitter and hard to live. -J.MI. in the "Weekly Budget." Don'T !-"Life is tull of ups and downs," said the man who is airy ead affable under all circumstances. "So I have heard." "Well, I am at present in the full enjoyment of one of the ups." "I congratulate ...

Still he maintained a dignified silence, and laid down the cup with a sigh. " Come, my dear," said his wife, referring to a slip of paper in her hand. " Never mind the coff...

IV.-ThFcFnDOLTo OF THE Franee. "Williams," whispered Jessica, as she and her friend took their places at dinner, "do you seedt the far end of the table a bald man with his mother? That is John." " How do you know ? asked Flora, cautiously adjusiting herspy.glass. "I am sure of it. The lay wears black, and the man is of papa's generation, and is exactly my idea of John." "But, my dear Talbot, that man is not only of your father's generation but of your father's age; and, to be plain with you, it is not my idea of John at all." * "I don't mind betting half-a.crown it is he." "Done!" said Flora. At this mament the vacant chair beside Joeica became occupied by the young officer I who had danced attendance on aoe Cobbe. The latter, after the manner of strongminded 'ladies, had boon gay enough during the rough passag, but bad fallen sick upon landing, and now was not at table. The gentleman slipped into his chair, and began his coup with out looking at his neighbors. But the father of a l...

POPULAR SCIENCE. Destroying a Dyke. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893

POPULAR SCIENCE. Destroying a Dyke. A very remarkable blating operation at .Lanberis is pcturesquely described in the London Telegraph." For many years (asys the correspondent of that journal) a huge mass of rock, technically known as a dyke," a legacy from previous workers, has frowned over one of the Great Dinorwse Quarriee, the property of Mr Asseton Smith, and has been a growing menace to the safety of the men employed in the "galleries" below, which, in a senes of " terraces," rise almost from the edge of the lake far up the steep breast of the mountain. The hon. W. W. Vivian, who manages the quarries for Mr Assheton Smith, decided to remove the dyke, and during the last three months the prepora. tions for its destruction have been in active progress. From three longitudinal tunnels an the solid rock ten chambers, each llf by 4ft, were made and charged with gelatine dynamite. Each bag of the explosive was placed in position by Mr Vivian himself. Everything having been satisfact...

The Age of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893

The Age of the Earth, Amonthe wider problems of naturai scienlce toward the solution of which con tributions have been made recently, the moststtriking is that of the age of the earth. Mlr Clarence King, the well known Amelican geologist and explorer, claims to have advanced Lord Kelvin's method ef determining the enrth'a age to a further order of importance. lIe drs cusses the experimeatal inrvcstigations of Dr Carl Barus on the effect of heat and pressure on certain rocks, and par ticularly selects the case of dia. base, which has a specific gravity approximately equal to the average specific gravity of the earth's crust. In the light of the rew facts he then recorn siders the probable rate of cooling of the earth, rendering more precise the con clusions of Lord Kelvin. As the result of the detailed discussion, Mr King con cludes that the earth's age probably does not exceed twenty-four millions of years in fact, that the estimate of the physicists is approximately correct, while ...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893

ACGRICULTURAL COLUMIL The word "economy" is a very com mon one; the compulsory practice o whiohis, by far, too common to be pleasant; t and yet it Ih one, the meaning ol which is ve' e often misinterpreted by those who feelt them-" a solvees byfar too familiar with it. When we a look in the dictionary, we find the meaning a given tobe thrifty management, frugality, ar , reangement, regulation system. But when we look about us, we find the evidently underetood meaning to be save, pinch, spre, starve, elight, and we find hundreds practicing the lest-defned economy, who are total strangers to the former. For instance, we find one man who, to save the price of the feed, will allow hishoreta to run P down, till they can only do a half day's work in a day. Another, to save the expense of a tool or an implement, will spend more than its price in the course of a year borrowing it from a neighbor. And another. to save the expense of good seed, will sow dirty or inferior seed. Another, to sav...

Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893

Ladies' Gossip. Much trouble is taken with petticoals, which are shaped exactly on the form of the skirts, and occasionally are as much as five yards round. They are distended at the feet. Women have never had so much cause to be in love with the fashions as at the present moment. The variety in the materials is endless, and there is hardly one that is not pleasingto the eye and softto the tnuch The0oloringe are not only bright in them. eelves, but are mingled in the most vivid contrast. The trimmings are magnificent, and luxury in details characterises the scheme af coming dress. Evening dresses still have ruches at the hem, but it is the sleeves which cannot fail to attract attention. They are gigantic, with paffs which are shaped to the elbow in a manner that is attogether inexplicable. Many dinner gowns have bodices formed of puflings of chiffon, divided by hori zontal bands of gold, singularly light and graceful. In one bodice thereis frequently a mixture of breohe satin and ve...

Spring Valley. CI'RO- ot OWN' CORRE*PJNDE P THE present season 's one of the most favorable for farmers and graziers that has ever been known here. Grass is ahu::dant but the crops are not quite up to expecta tions, probably owing to so much wet weather. On Sunday afternoon and evening very heavy rain fell. and flooded the creeks, the King Parrot being over its banks. Mr. W. Capewell, of Happy Va!ley, has built a fine bridge over the King Parrot Creek. The bridge isgo feet long and 13 fe et wide, and the decking is 15 feet above the ordinary level of the creek. Mr. Joseph Evans has Einished filling his ensi'age pit. Ile has put'in some four or five acres of peas, and three acres of grass, or in all about 20 tons of fodder. Mir. Evans purposes feeding his milking cows on easilage during the summer months. I hear from several parties, of some fine hauls of fish that have been taken from the King Parrot Creek.
