MR. GARRETT, M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 8 December 1883
MR. GARRETT, M.P. The Herald of Saturday says:—Probably most of our readers will be inclinod to ques tion the accuracy of Mr. Garrett's statement, that Sydney is glutted and stuffed to the very lips with public expenditure. There is not a comfortable court of jnstico within the city. Its Parliament Houso is a make shift. The same may bo said of its Public Library and Art Gallery. ; It is'possible that the metropolis lias had money spont in it that cannot be justified on public grounds. But of what town or district in tho colony could not tho same be said ? It is one of the blots on colonial government that funds which should be devoted to general objects are applied to those which are municipal or sectional. If the people of Sydney got a little too mncli spent on their parks, is it not a fact that country towns and districts get an amount of road and bridge expendi ture of a municipal character altogether beyond their rights ? Mr. Garrett spoke as tho representative of a district ra...

Tm: following account of the effect of practical joking is liy /Egles iti tha " Australasian ":—Arcli ilencon M—, of Now Zealand, was a gcntloman rc-. markable for getting into minor scrapes through an innocent nioddloiiomoncss.

WASTING TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 8 December 1883
WASTING TIME. Tiibrk arc three practices indulged in by certain members of the Assembly t.liat cnn be curtailed in a great measure by the presis, practises which do no good, and loud to no profitable advantage oitber to the gentlemen who indulge in those practices, or to the public. The practices to which we refer are (1) asking a series of frivolous questions with ft make-believe to constituencies tlmt the particular members arc " alive to a sense of duty," in other words, nlive to a morbid sense of their own inilatod vanity; (2) mov ing the adjournment of the House to bring under parliamentary notice some inconse quential matter that could be disposed of by a n'ote to the Minister; and (B) charging members of the Government with mal-prac tices and ofiicial corruption. If the Sydney press were to ignore the reporting of these questions, or omit the names of the honor able gentlemen asking them, the vile prac tice would bo reduced to a minimum. If the debate on motions of adjournmen...

MANUFACTURE OF EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 8 December 1883
MANUFACTURE OF EGGS. It appears that fcho manufacture of eggs is being carried on in the United States on a large scale, one establishment turning out upwards of a thousand an hour. The yolks are formed of a paste composed of cornflour, starch, and other materials. The whites are formed of albumen, and are chemically identical with the wliitesof eggs. The inner skin is a film of gelatine, the shell is plaster of Paris, and is rather thicker than the real article. The yolk is first rolled into a ball and is frozen hard. It is - then enclosed in the albumen, which is also frozen, after being submitted to a rapid rotatory motion, which elongates the sphere to the avoid form. It is then dipped into the gelatine, and then into the plaster, which dries very rapidly and retains the form after the con tents have melted. It is said that in point of taste the eggs are undistinguishable from the real article, while :hey have the advan tage of keeping perfectly good for years, and can be more e...

HOW A LOCOMOTIVE WAS RAISED FROM A RIVER. The " Elevated Railroad Journal" rolates how tho foat of raising a liugo freight engino froiir tlio mud in Bush River, on thu Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Baltimore railroad, bolow JIavro du'Grace, waa RiiccoKfifitlly accomplished a few days since. The ongino fell through the drawbridge sonio time ago. The dilliculties of thu feat may ho imaginod when it is understood that the engine waa soveral feet below the water's surface, and completely buried in tho mud. Tho wreckers have boon at work a wook, tho tirst thing being accomplished being the pinainp; of heavy chains beneath the gjeat masK of iron. Two divers, sent down for this purpose, were compelled to dig several feet beneath tho soft mud at tho bot tom of the river. The chains wevo made taut to four heavy scows, which woro filled with wntor at low tide. Everything boing satisfactory, tho water was pumped out of tho scows, thus tightening thn chains about tho engine. When the tido bogan...
