Sketcher. RACHEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
Sketcher. RACHEL. Bi CuoiE L. BOuEr.. "Yes," there ahe is, a veritable Rochel, and ' weeping for her children," too, I infer, for there are tears in these brave gray eyes of hers to day. Poor thing. Poor thing: " And John Roland turned regretfully to look alter the disconsolate little figure slowly com ingdown the teep, dark stairway of a city shirt factory, his great, generous heart longing to follow after with the needed cheer and con solation; while Gregory Howell, his easy going, good-natured companion, indulged in friendly chafling at the little woman's ex pense (as he termed her) and his friend's su.s ceptibility in the direction of good-looking females. But the raillery fell upon deaf ears, for John Roland had moved a step toward the road and was gazing intently in the di. rectlion of the retreating figure in sombre black gown, and an instant later was starting rapidly down the street in swift pursuit, his former companion evidently, quite forgot ten. Gregory Howell stood amo...
The Magnet in Surgery. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
The Magnet in Surgery. Mechanics and others employed in iron factories frequently suffer some annoyance and no little pain from the accidental intro. duction into the eye of particles of steel, iron flinge, etc. All persons engaged in work of this kind should carry with them magnets, the use of which rarely fails to remove the foreign body. A man in one of our local factories drove a piece of steel filing into his eyeball a few days ago, and a surgeon spent some time in vain endeavors to extract is. Finally he brought a powerful electro.magnet to his aid, by means of which the offensive particle was at once removed. It was over quarter of an inch long, and its entire length had been imbedded in the eyeball.

How Many Stars We See. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
How Many Stars We See. In some remarkable mathematical ob. Eervations by t. Ilermite, concerning the number of stars, he shows that the total number visible to the naked eye of an obh. server of average visual power does not exceed 6,000, and of these the Southern Hemisphere contains somewhat the larger number. In order to see that number of stare the night moust be moonless, the sky cloudless, and the atmosphere pure, and here the power of the unaided eye stops; an opera glaee will bring out 100,000, while a small telescope will bring out at least 150,000, and the most powerful telescopes yet construoted will show more than 100,000,000. Electric welding is the latest of the in. doetrial applications of electricity, and it would seem to have already reached a thoroughly practical stage. Prof. Elihbu Thomeon, of Lynn, Massachossete, has shown that bars of iron, steel, copper, and brass esn be welded firmly together in a few seconds by passing through their junction a very powerful el...

MR. HUNT REVOLTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
MR. HUNT REVOLTS. Mr Hunt does not take his defeat with a good grace. He makes his journal this week. the sole newspaper medium of a sup. gestion that he is the victim of foul play accompanied by what amounts, in plain Eng. lih, to a threat that he will try to upset the verdict of the ltaturning Officr by attempt. ing to pro . "duplicate voting."

I was on board the Union Steam Shipping Company's ill-fated steamer Tarara some years ago sailing from Wellington to Dune din. The steamer left Wellington before the crowing of the cock, and I had left my hotel (which was a considerable distance away) about daylight. On arriving on the Queen's wharf I perceived a man, dressed similar to that of a Highland soldier, apparently as fatigued and dejlcted as myself, leaning upon a' walking stick on the deck of the steamer, and gazing intently on the wild, but roman. tie looking scenery of New Zealand's Empire city. I am no particular disciple of Lavator're yet the 'mn carried his soul apon his face, and we were friends at the first glance. He wore a plain Highland bonnet, and a grey overcoat, buttoned to the throat. Ilie dress bespoke him to belong to the ranks; but there was a dignity in his manner, and a fire, a glowing lhnguage in his e...

Loud-Talking Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Loud-Talking Women. Persons desirous to be thought lndies sometimes converse screamingly in publio vehicles, apparently for the purpose of at. tracting attention. They succeed, but the attention they elicit is not of a compli mentary nature. Their gentler sisters are sorry and ashamed for them, and men are disgousted at euch conduct. There is a magnetism in melodious sounds which is almost irresistible, and when they issue from fair lips they are apt to take the sternest of ns captive. On the other hand, harsh, dise cordant tones, though they should come from the loveliest mouth in Christendom, play the mischief with sentiment and put tenderness to flight. II would be an ad. vantage to every lady if she remembered this, and so modulated her tones that "Her voice was ever soft, Gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman."
