Is the Flying Machine Found? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

Is the Flying Machine Pound? If it be permissible to judge by very plausible appearances, the new year in Russia (says the Sfc Petersburg correspondent of tho Daily Telegraph ) will be ushered in by such a wonderful discovery in applied scienco as would have appeared Utopian to the most sanguine day-dreamer fourteen davs a fro. The secret of the flight of birds and of utilising the ? air for the purposes of human locomotion as readily as we now use land and water is seriously believed to havo leen laid bare by a Russian mathematician named Tsbernoff, The circum stance that his name is not associated with any previous invention or discovery prized outside Russia is attributed to the fact that he spent thirty long years in investigating this one subject, in the course of which he not only was con sidered by most of his acquaintances and friends as ' cracked,' but was more than once disposed to acquiesce in that opinion himself. His present firm belief in his own sanity and in the incu...

The Effects of Polygamy among the Chinese. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

The Effects of Polygamy among the Chinese. Pastor Gottschalk, of the Berlin Foundling House in Hong Kong, draws a sombre picture of the effects of the custom of polygamy among the Chinese. Among these is the lack of marriageable girls. At present girls are sold at a very high price ; a girl of fourteen to sixteen can scarcely be purchased for less than one hundred dollars — a price which, as Herr Gottschalk quaintly says^ ' poor people can ill afford.' Some buy for their infant son m infant wife, who is occasionally nursed at the same breast as her future husband. If this economical device fails, the matter is regarded as serious, as they may have no offspring to perform the sacrifices at their tombs. Young girls (adds Mr. Gottschalk) dare not leave their homes for fear of being kidnapped, as they not unfrequently are. In a place one day's journey from Hong Kong, three or four years ago, twenty young girls were stolen in a night, taken on board a junk, and carried no one knew whithe...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

LOCAL NEWS. State Resumption of Lands in New_ Zea land. — The Victorian Minister of Lands has issued a report upon the system adopted iu New Zealand, under which the State resumes and buys back land to be made available for small holdings.^ The available Crown lands are only about 2,o00,000 acres in extent, are scattered throughout the terri tory, are for the most part heavily timbered, and are not well BUited for agriculture. Consequently, the policy of obtaining land for small settlers was forced upon a Government convinced that tbe prosperity of the country depended upon an in crease in the number of cultivators of the soil. An Act was accordingly passed in 1802, which gives the Government power to buy land which owners are willing to sell. There is no compulsory sale under this Act. The lands bought muBt be situated in localities where there is a demand for small farms, and where the holders of such farms can obtain employment for part of the year. The Minister takes no active p...

Warned in Time. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

Warned in Time. Ifc was tlie policy of the pioneers, says the chronicler of West Virginia history, to cultivate aB far as practical the friendship of the numerous tribes of Indians on the west side of the Ohio River. As a natural consequence of hospitalities repeatedly extended to the Mingoes and Wyandottea, a feeling of good-will existed in many instances between these tribes and tho Whites. In the case of the Zane brothers aud the VVyaudottPs, this friendliness waa increased by the adoption of Isaac Zane by the tribe, and his residence anions them. Among the personal friends of Jonathan Zane was a Wyandatte warrior of great size and courage, known as Captain Jack. j One evening about bedtime Mr. Zane and his wife were surprised by an unexpected call from Captain Jack. Mrs. Zane, as was her custom, cooked venison and prepared a supper, but wlic-n the Indian was invited to eat, he refused and sat in grim silence. This unusual behaviour foreboded ill, and aroused the most serious fea...

MERCURY JUNIOR. THE LAST KISS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

But the little bnre feet on the etairway, And the faint, smothered laugh in the hall, And the eerie-low lisp on the silence, Cry;up to me over ft all. So I gather it up—where was broken, _ tcar-fadea thread of my theme, Tolling how, as one night I sat writing, A fairy broko in on my dream— A little inquisitive fairy— My own little girl, with the gold Of the sun in her hair, and the dewy Blue eyes of the fairies of old. 'Twns the dear little girl that I scolded— T S° « WQ9 a rooracnt \[^Q this,' 1 said, 1 when she knew I was busy, To come romping in for a kiss ?

After witnessing the widow's reception of her son and the uncle's joy over tbe recovery of Dandy, Eli Badger must have given them all credit for very good acting, indeed, if he doubted for a mo ment the entire truth of Kit's story. Even tho horse gave signs of feeling himself at home again and recognising; his master. 'Excuse me for not noticin' you before,' said Uncle Gray, putting up a husky palm to shake hands with Mr. Badger in the waggon. ' I was struck all in a heap at seem' my hoss ag'in.' Eli gave a not very good-natured grunt. ' If anybody's to be struck in a heap, seem's if I'm the man,' he said. ' Your gain is my loss.' 'How so ?' Where d' ye find him ?' Uncle Gray said, turning upon Christopher. 'How did ye bring it about ?' 'It was Branlow who stole him,' Kit explained, ' and he sold him to Mr. Badger here for saventv dollars.'

International Bicycle Race. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

International Bicycle Race. A 100-mile race between Arthur Linton, the English 100-mile champion, and Dubois, the well known French cyclist, (took place on January the 14th. at the Velodrome d'Hiver, and resulted in the victory of Linton, who came in one lap — 333 metre* — and one length in front of his opponent. The distance was covered in 4 hours 47 mins. and one fifth of a second, says Eentsr. The VelodormG d'Hiver, which holds nearly 17,000 people, was crammed. Both cyclists wore their respective national colours, and the sympathy of the spectators was manifestly with the Frenchman. A start was effected at 1.48 p.m., eighteen minutes late. Dubois at once took the lead, but wa3 closely followed by Linton. When 20 miles had been covered Linton spurted past Dubois, and was gradu ally in creasing his lead, when in turning both fell simultaneously. Dubois was the first to remount, but Linton soon resumed his former position. A lap further on the Welshman again put on a spurt. Dubois ...

Is Football Brutal? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

Is Football Brutal? * There is a symposium on this subject in the New York Forum for January. In this the President; of Cornell University, Pro. Schurman, writes — The character of the game has steadily deterior ated, as the experts themselves now dcclare. The 'flying wedge' and other modifications of the play which have lessened the relative importance o£ running, kicking, and catching, have transformed the game into a contest, not merely rough, but dangerous to life and limb, brutal in itself, revolting to look upon, and degrading to tho humanity o£ both participants and beholders. As I understand the matter, however, these conditions are not essential to the playing of football. And if by a football con vention, or in any other authoritative manner, the game could be rescued from the brutalising features which have given a shock to our humane sentiments, I should think it entitled to a now trial on its intrinsic merits ; nnd I see much in it (at any rate as it used to be played) ...

Feats of Modern Engineering [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

Peats of Modern Engineering, Mr. Henry Ward, C.E., lectured recently in London on this subject. He said the piers of the Forth Bridge were higher than St. Parti's Cathedral, and the span between the piers was more than double the width of the Thames at London Bridge. Each pier is made of four minor piers, each weighing 20,000 tons, or the weight of the Great Eastern. One of the great difficulties was that the whole of these piers were built without a particle of scaffolding, the work being raised by hydraulic pressure from the last completed length of the pier. The men became so expert that in spite of the height they did more work at the top than at the bottom. The other great difficulty was that the depth of water in the river, something like 200 feet, rendered it utterly impossible to have any scaffolding. The problem of building a bridge with a third of a mile span without a scaffolding was a new one. The spans were built from each pier by overhanging cranes, the new length bein...
