THE EXILED PUNTER IDEAL HOLIDAY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
THE EXILED PUNTER — ♦— — IDEAL HOLIDAY (By 'J«ek«.') The otheT day I stumbled across an article; in a woman's publication to which my better half is addicted, in which a lady correspondent, resident in the bush, set forth her views on the ideal holiday by the sea that she looked for ward to one day having. The article set me thinking. I, to whom the racing game was once the breath of tif e, have also for the ? last few years been a dweller in the bush, and nave not seen a racccouse other than a buss track for many moons. When I go for a, spell it will not be to the seaside. No, Queen-street will be near enough to the coast, and the sight of Breakast Creek, as seen from a race special, well be sea enough for me. I look forward to that first Saturday In town. I will arise early and cat a leisurely breakfast, meantime noting the good things selected for the afternoon by friend 'Sirdar.'* Breakfast over, I .trill stroll round totm, meet old friends, and listen with satisfaction to the c...

NOTABLE EVENTS Rene Antoine de Reaumer DIED OCTOBER 18, 1757. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
NOTABLE EVENTS ? ♦ Rene Antoine de Reaumer DIED OCTOBER 18, 1757. Eene Antoine de Eeaumur is renieui bered, strangely enough, for one of tsie l«ast of his achievements in. science. Had he not fixed a way of graduating a thermometer, a thing which could be done by any schoolboy to-day, and iiti this not been adopted on the continent; and called after him, his name would be forgotten to-day. And yet ne was no mean scientist, and conducted re searches into a great variety of subjects. It is of interest, in this connection, to note that, until the early part of last century, the scales for measuring tem perature were so varied that it was diffi cult for one scientist to understand the records of experiments made by another. In 1724, however, Fahrenheit devised the scale which is used to-day, taking the freezing point of water as 32 degrees and boiling point as 212 degrees. A few years later, Eeaumuj introduced his scale which runs from 0 degrees to 80 degrees, while in 1780 a Swede name...
Jonathan Swift DIED OCTOBER 19, 1745. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
i Jonathan Swift 'DIED OCTOBER 19, 1745. There are probably few of my readers who have not read 'Gulliver's Travels.'-' Its author was Dean Swift, who was born in Dublin in 1667, his father being a lawyer who came of a Yorkshire family. After a brief school career at Kilkenny he went to Trinity College, Dublin. Cora ing to England, he became secretary to Sir William Temple. Here he was intro duced to many famous persons, among others, William III. He also met Esther Johnson, a child of seven, the famous 'Stella,' who afterwards influenced his life so greatly. Becoming dissatisfied with his psos peets, Swift took orders, and secured the small Irish living at Kilroot, where he composed his famous satires, 'The Tale of a Tub' and 'The Battle of the Books,' both of these being published in 1704. His position gave Swift enouifn money to live on, and from time to timo he went to London. He became acquainted with Addison, Steele, Congreve, and other leading literary men of that day. He wro...
Sir Christopher Wren BORN OCTOBER 20, 1632. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
Sir Christopher Wren BORN OCTOBER 20, 1632. Educated at Westminster school, and Wadhani College, Oxford, Wren became professor of astronomy at'Oxfoidi He had always a talent for drawing, but he was 30 years of age before he began to annlv it to architecture. The first work in which he had a chance of sho.wing his genius was the building of a chapel for Pembroke Hall, Cambridge. Later he designed important additions to the buildings of Trinity College, Cambridge, success of these undertakings brought him much more work, the most important being the restoration of St. Paul's Cathe dral. When the Great Fire of London de stroyed this building Wren decided th.'it it would be better to rebuild it entirely; and though the committee at first were much against this because of the great amount of money it would cost, he finally won the King's consent to bis scheme, and immediately commenced his designs. The first design did not please the com mittee or the King, and Wren had to draw another o...
Battle of Trafalgar OCTOBER 21, 1805. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
Battle of Trafalgar OCTOBER 21, 1805. This day marks the glorious victory of Trafalgar. It is likewise the anni versary of the death of the greatest «f Britain's sea heroes, Lord Nelson. The British fleet under Nelson, consisting of 27 ships, sighted the combined French and Spanish fleet of. 33 ships, com manded by vuleneuve, off Cape Tra falgar, on the south-west coast of Spain. The first shot was fired at the Victory, Nelson's flagship, about noon, at a range of over a. mile. The Victory did not, reply until she was within 30 feet of the enemy's stern, when she fired every gun of her broadside, doing fearful damage. Five hours later the battle was over, aud 15 of the enemy ships were de stroyed or captured, while four others were taken and two wrecked shortly afterwards. On the other hand, not a single British ship was lost; but, alas! the heroic Admiral Lord Kelson was mortally wounded. It is interesting to record 'the circumstances in which the famuos saying of Lord Nelson-,-'En...
Dr. Franz Liszt BORN OCTOBER 22, 1811. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
Dr. Franz Liszt BORN OCTOBER 22, 1811. On a concert platform in Vienna,- in April. 1823, stood a little boy of 12 years of age. This was JTranz Liszt, bowing in acknowledgment of the rap turous applause of the audience, who ?were thus showing their appreciation N-f his beautiful playing on the -piano. Then a distinguished-lookinsr man was seen to mount . upon the platform. He kissed the little lad and praised his perform ance. It was the great musi cian, Beethoven, and Liszt never forgot this incident in his career. This little boy. who had tbus delighted one of the world's greatest music composers, became in after years the most celebra.tedi pianist ever known. His father, who had early realised his great musical ability, spared no pains to have him thoroughly taught, and at the ago of nine he made his first public appearance at Oldenburg. ,' ? He made many tours in the principal continental cities, and was received everywhere rapturously. Hie pupils included some of the greatest m...

HINTS TO NOVICBS. \, Jn the ease of t fancier owning s tmall ^ lot of birds, I am of opinion that the best \ practice is to stop all young birds racing after flying 100 miles.
