FADS OF COMPOSERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 May 1899
Fads of Composebs. Genius- has a queer way of. doing things, Haydn, when in the humour for composition, always puts on his best suit and made his toilet as if go ing to a court ball. Another of his fads woe to write hia music on the finest paper that could bo procured. Gluck had liii piano carried out in the meadow, and,— with a -bottle of champagne on each side of him, went nt his work like a- wild man. Paisiello composod the whole of his operas, 'Tho Barber of Seville' and 'La Molinara,' while in bed. - Sacchini could do nothing without having his two favourite cats on his shoulders. Cimarosa always wanted a crowd of j friends about him when he composed his music, while Snrti always with* drow to a lonely chamber lighted dimly by- a.single lamp.

(To the Editor of the Bombala Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 May 1899
(To the Editor of the JBomlab Times. J Sir, — Will you kindly permit me a short space in your valuable paper to call attention to a regulation ill the Lands Act which is a danger and a menace to the best interest of the small settler, and permits large land holders to esohange portions of thoir holdings (mostly infarlor portions) for Grown lands, It bohovea the residents of every district where such exchanges are proposed, to be up pnd do ing, and. keep a watohful eye upon the small portion of good Crown Linds still available for settlement. No doubt the large land owners of N.S.W. are very philanthropic, and offer exchange land very muoh better than that they wish to acquire. Nevertheless, suoh exchanges are generally found to be more to the interest of tha land owner than the Crown.''' - At any rats', the proposal usually comes from the land owner, . and one would naturally suppose he expects^some mater ial advantage, else why not keep his own land ? A brief review of the working ...

"Wireless Telegraphy." [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 May 1899
'' Wireless Telee-raph^-' This is not a happy name for tho new Marconi system. The communic ation is by electric waves ; some wires are essential at the.„.sending station and the receiving ; but no wire is wanted to connect the stations. Other names suggested are 'Hertz wave felegraphy,' in honor of the. late .scientist, Heinrich Hertz, who, in 1887, was able to generate electric waves, and to measure their velocity througn apace ; this ho placed at 184,000 miles per second, or about the same journey speed aa light. Other names are ' spark telegraphy,' ' sp.tce tele graphy.' Twenty-five years ago, an Englishman, Clerk Maxwell, taught that light was an olectro-magnetic phonomenon. So light, heat, electric ity are family connections. Summed up, the modus operandi is as follows': ' — The sender is provided with a Hertz oscillator, two brass balls or . spheres and a powerful battery and induction coil. With this he causes sparks to jump between the balls, and from the spark gap radiate ...

Constitution Bill. ADDRESS BY MR. W. H. WOOD, M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 May 1899
Constitution Bill ADDRESS BY Mr, W. ; - WOOD, M. P. .' Mr. Wood, tho member for Elen Bombala, addressed a crowded house in the School of Arts on Tuesday night, taking for his subject the Federal Consti tution Bill. Mr.- H. M. Joseph (Mayor) ocoupied tho ohair, and in a low appropriate words introduced the speaker. Mr, Wood, who on rising was received with annlause, said : — It was always gratifying to a speaker to be confronted with a big audience, and more particularly was it so with him to-night, bocauso_ the audience was not moved by the sometimes strong passiimsand feelings which brought audiences togother in local elections when party feeling was running high, but they came impelled by a true national spirit to take an interest in the great question of Federation. The objoct of his address was to explain tho Federal Bill from his standpoint, and he was not going to oc cupy time by long introductory remarks. His position there that night was entirely apart from his capacity of t...
Agricultural Judges Decisions. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 May 1899
Agricultural Judges Decisions. To the ordinary man in pnrsuit ot knowledge at an agricultural show the reuson why ono animal or ono article is rpgardod os superior to another is often a profound mystery. Of course, the judges and experts can see the I difference at a glance ; but, unless the layman is fortunate enough to button hole some one.of undoubted authority on tne suojoct, or iias tne patienco to grope after the truth by oomparing, according to standards he does not feel certain of, tho points at issue, he derives but little instruction from the competition ; and it is the same with competitors themselves. The adop tion of a scale of points, framed in ac cordance with objects aimed at, and with due ? regard to local conditions, for every class adjudicated upon, has often been suggested as the right wav to make ' agricultural competitions as educational as they should bo. That thero are some obstacles in the way of the genoral introduction of such a principle is admitted by al...

Two of a Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 May 1899
Two of a Trade. That two of a trado seldom agree is a common saying. Its weakness, however, resides in the faot that it. is a cavilling, sneering snying. The idea sought to be conveyed is that the disagreement is the outcome of reciprocal jealousy. While that is likely, it is not a necessary, or even a philosophical, inforeuce. Two of a trade may easily see reasons for an honest diffoience of opinion to which the outsider is biinu. Again, two of a trade may agree and both be wrong — on a point of course, connected with their own in dustry. Some years ago there was high debate over the question whether a paint ing, exhibited in Paris, was an original Yelasquez or a copy. Half the artists and connnisseun in Europe got not under the collar about it. It was ono or the other— so they siid. Later on the fact came out. It wes neither an original nor a copy ; it was a replica. The experts wore mistaken. And so runs speculative judgment in everything. Here is tho caso of two doctors ; both, ...
