The banks of mist, rolling wider apart, disclosed a great white steamer a quarter of a mile beyond ihe yacht., and but a short distance, astern of her. The strange ship bristled with a wealth of armament, and men were crowded on her deck. Ar.d by more than one sign she 'was "promptly re-" cognised as an American man-of-war.

The steam was shut oil, and the ridges of foam fell away from the bow, the King of Troy lay gracefully and at, ease on the swell. By this time jthe man-of-war was laying-to, and it was apparent to all that she was out of action and I badly crippled. The tumult that , then burst from end to end of the cruiser's deck was dreadful. Frantic I with savage exultation, the horde of I pirate ruffians screeched and clam oured until they were hoarse. From the bridge, with a fiendish smile on his face, Captain Gore looked down upon his motley crew. And to l)ick: as lie listened to the din and gazed out over the water, the moment was a bla...

Heligoland, the tiny island in the North Sea, ? which Germany proposes to turn into a great station for ! her. airships, is one of tho most c.ur 1 ions islands in tho world. i Its towering cliffs, for instance, are largely artificial.

Steel Barrels Made to be Nested. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 April 1914
Steel Barrels felade to be Nested. A new and ingenious type of steel barrel ao designed as to permit compact storage when shipped empty is to bo placcd on the market abroad. The chief feature about this barrel is that it is made in halves that aro exactly similar, I with flanges provided so that uny two halves can bo bolted together to form a complete barrel. In the shipping world bulky articles like barrels, when shipped empty, are charged at bulk tonnage rates. Bar rels of this type, when nested com pactly, will bo entitled to weight rates, reducing the shipping charges .materially. 'Phis invention brings to mind (he fact that in the old days of tho whaling industry ships were often compelled to put. to sea with out proper ballast because of tho fact that all the available space was occupied by empty barrels.
