BUILDING WAR CYCLES. ENGLISH ATTITUDE TO A REMARKABLE MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
BUILDING WAR CYCLES. ENGLISH ATTITUDE TO A REMARK ABLE MACHINE. Mr. Donald Menzies, a colonial engineer, has been sent to England by the Cape Government to get made a number of motor "quads," or light four-wheeled machines, for use on the Cape lines which need protection against rebels and Boers. In the first place, specifications were sent to England, but the English makers favored with the order arc said to have declared that a quadricycle of the weight ordered would be useless. They were asked to supply a motor "quad" capablc of carrying six men at the rate of :!0 miles an hour, and weighing not more than 1351b. They replied that the machine should weigh from 4001b. to 5001b. They apparently did not know that a motor "quad" of the re quired capacity weighing 1301b. has run hun dreds of miles during recent months. The motor "quad" in use is built with tubing, and is pneumatic tyred. Flanges attached to the wheels prevent the "quad" from leaving the line, and by its means rapid sco...

PICKING OUT THE PLUMS. \ - — - ( > > SMART PHRASES FROM "THE IM J PORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST." j No play over produced upon the English stage ^ contains more verbal sparkle than the farce now S being played at the Coronet Theatre, London, V written five years ago by the brilliant literary / artist whose tragic fall was a nine days' wonder. ) The dialogue coruscates from beginning to end. ) Here are some of the smartest epigrams:— ) Cleverness is a public nuisance.

A ROYAL RIP VAN WINKLE. THE STRANGE CASE OF KING OTTO. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
! A ROYAL RIP VAN WINKLE. ) , „r , > THE STRANGE CASE OF KING OTTO. The Courts of Europe have their attention fixed upon Bavaria, where one of the strangest dramas in history is being enacted. Since 1886 the throne of Bavaria has belonged to King Otto, but ten years before then the unfortunate Otto had become insane, and, instead of his ruling his people, he has needed constant care and supervision. He never has been King ex cept in name, and has passed his days and nights unconscious of all that has transpired in the world; his mind a blank, his life that of a*Rip Van Winkle asleep in the hills. LIGHT AFTER DARKNESS. It is said now that reason has resumed her sway in King Otto's mind, and that he has re awakened to sanity after the lapse of over a quarter of a century of mental oblivion. But, of course, he knows nothing of the events which have occurred during his period of illness. He takes up the tale of his life and his kingdom's just where it broke off 26 years ago. The thin...
NEW PERPETUAL MOTION MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
NEW PERPETUAL MOTION MACHINE. An improved automatic or self-acting gravity wheel is the modest description of an apparatus which, like all other "perpetual motion" ma chines, promises to supersede steam as a motive power. The invention relates to the construction of a ( ""ANOTHER SEL.K-MOTOR. gravity wheel, witfl concentric rings, secu red to arms radiating from the centre. These arms or weights act as balance and driviug levers, and are so nicely arranged—these on the downward mov ing side being two thirds heavier than those on the other— that a natural falling of the weights insures perpetual motion. It will be fceen that the idea is to got ine ( weights nearer or further from the centre cf ( revolution for the purpose of altering leverage, ( the drop not being taken into consideration. ( A cessation of the driving force can only be / effected by preventing the weights from falling. ) and this is done by a very simple contrivance ) in the form of a spring which acts on all the ) w...
EVER-ACCELERATING PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
EVER-ACCELERATING PROGRESS. S This is an age not only of progress, but of \ advance and of development at an ever-aeeeler ( ating pace. One striking illustration to band is ( found in the 20,000th number of the "Shipping &lt; Gazette." When our contemporary first made c its appearance on January 5, 1836, the steamers ( of all kinds owned in Great Britain represented / considerably less than 150,000 tons. Their total ) to-day is between eleven and twelve million / tons. What will it be on January 4, 1936? He ) would be a bold man who would venture to offer ) any prediction on such a subject.

A TOPIC OF TO-DAY. BRITAIN'S LATEST LITTLE WAR IN WEST AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
A TOPIC OF TO-DAY. BRITAIN'S LATEST LITTLE WAR IN | WEST AFRICA. The "Aro" Expedition in West Africa is Eng land's latest little war. It has been organised at Old Calabar to fight tho Cross River tribes in Southern Nigeria. Four columns, numbering 1500 men, were sent out from three separate bases, and work in co operation under the supreme command of Lieu tenant-Colonel Montanaro. Hard fighting is expected with the Aro tribe in the hinterland of Old Calabar, and the operations are likely to extend as far into the dry seasdn as next April. The Aros have already been in conflict with British troops, and have fought according to the best traditions of Fuzzy-Wuzzy. In August last a Travelling Commissioner was "held up" when marching from Akwete to Old Calabar with only a small escort. In consequence, Colonel Montanaro, commandant of the troops in Southern Nigeria, despatched a column to levy a fine on the natives—the influential Aros—for their truculent behaviour. The force consisted cf...

Great Britain and Germany. FOUR STATESMEN OF THE HOUR. —«— MR. CHAMBERLAIN AND COUNT VON BULOW. SIR HENRY CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN AND LORD ROSEBERY. Throughout the world the names Chamber- lain, Von Bulow, Campbell-Bannerman, and Rosebery are the most largely used just now. Some years ago the Americans dubbed the present Secretary of State for the Colo- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE RIGHT HON. SIR HENRY CAMPBELL- &nbsp; BANNERMAN, G.C.B., P.C. &nbsp; nies "Pushful Joe." He has lived up to it. &nbsp; To-day he is the most prominent person in &nbsp; the world. All other British statesmen (in- &nbsp; cluding the Prime Minister) sink into insig- &nbsp; nificance. The whole political firmament of Europe is filled with the form of Mr. Cham- berlain, the Goliath of the British Cabinet. The Continental press and politicians have vilified him, the German Chancellor, Count Von Bulow, has held him up to the opprobrium of the German ...

&nbsp; A DUKE'S WEDDING. &nbsp; &nbsp; MISS NINA POORE BECOMES THE &nbsp; DUCHESS OF HAMILTON. &nbsp; The little church in the old-world village of &nbsp; Newton Toney, Wiltshire, was the centre, on &nbsp; &nbsp; December 4th, of a beautiful wedding picture, &nbsp; which so closely had the secret of the time and &nbsp; place been guarded, was witnessed by only a few &nbsp; of the bride and bridegroom's relations. &nbsp; Tall, stately, beautiful, the sun shining on her &nbsp; golden hair and on her wedding braverie of white &nbsp; &nbsp; satin and Brussels lace, Nina Mary Benita, the &nbsp; last unmarried daughter of Major and Mrs. &nbsp; Poore, of Old Lodge, Salisbury, walked up the &nbsp; aisle to take part in the ceremony which made &nbsp; her Duchess of Hamilton and Brandon, premier &nbsp; Duchess of Scotland. &nbs...
MEDICINAL MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
MEDICINAL MUSIC. &nbsp; A new society has just been organised in New York which intends to employ music as an aid to the cure of disease. Musicians and singers will be invited to give their services free and to visit the hospitals and homes of invalids and attempt to divert the thoughts of the patients by vocal and instru- mental music. Miss Eva Vescelius, a well-known soprano, is the organiser of the society. She says: "We shall use great tact and judgment in selecting the music. Those airs having a soothing effect will be employed in fevers. I have known the 'Pilgrims' Chorus,' from 'Tannhauser,' work &nbsp; wonders in insomnia. I believe the day will &nbsp; come when no hospital will be without a well &nbsp; equipped band." &nbsp; The society will be known as the St. Cecilia &nbsp; branch of the International Sunshine Society. &nbsp; Several doctors approve of the movement. &nbsp;
The King's Chamberlain. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
The King's Chamberlain, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (BY DICK SWIVEL-EYE.) &nbsp; It was beautifully fine and clear on Wednes- &nbsp; day morning, as the workman's tram, in a series &nbsp; of violent jerks, jolted up the steep pinch of Alfred-street, North Sydney. Mr. Jack Plane, the carpenter, bound for the balmy wilds of Willoughby, was endeavoring to read a paper, and waited patiently for the steady current of electricity that would render it possible further along. The North Sydney tram in the early morn is a certain cure for the liver complaint. It is re- commended by the medical faculty to all lodge patients and poor persons whom it is desired to restore to health. Or if it isn't, it ought to be. It would be superfluous to mention that the paper was "The Daily Telegraph." "Takes a boundary-rider to enjoy these early morning trams, don't it?" These sententious syllables were uttered by Mr. Gluesize, the famous house-painter...
COLD WEATHER WINDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
COLD WEATHER WINDOWS. Doubly-glazed windows for cold weather have been experimented with by H. Schoentjes, of Ghent. Using glass one-twelfth of an inch thick, he has found that the heat loss is much less when the sheets are separated 2½in. to 4½in. than when the separation is more or less. Wetting the outside glass increased the loss about 40 per cent. &nbsp;
TORTURE IN ARGENTINA. BRUTAL TREATMENT OF AN INNOCENT SWISS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
TORTURE IN ARGENTINA. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BRUTAL TREATMENT OF AN &nbsp; INNOCENT SWISS. &nbsp; Great indignation has been caused in Switzer- land by the news of the terrible torture which a Swiss has recently been subjected in Argentina. M. Fontaneliaz, a brother of the victim, writ- ing from Buenos Ayres to Geneva recently, says: "On October 15 a large warehouse in the colony of Vera, near Santa Fe, was burnt down, and according to the custom of the country all the in- habitants were arrested and an inquiry held. M. Fontaneliaz, who had been left in charge by the owner of the warehouse, was also arrested. "For some reason or other the chief of the police suspected him of setting fire to the ware- house, but, unable to obtain any proofs, he de- cided to employ torture to obtain a confession. "He was then subjected to the 'Cepo Colom- biano,' as employed formerly by the Spanish inquisitors. It consists in binding ...

&nbsp; RUSHING AUSTRALIAN MAILS. &nbsp; ACROSS AMERICA AT EIGHTY &nbsp; MILES AN HOUR. &nbsp; An American paper gives the following inter- esting particulars regarding the carriage of Aus- tralian mails across the American continent:— "The east-bound Lake Shore, Limited, carrying over 400 pouches of Australian mail to catch Saturday's steamer for Queenstown, arrived in this city at 1.45 o'clock p.m. (November 29), and left for the East on schedule time, having made up fourteen minutes between here and Cleve- land. "The train left Chicago practically one hour late, at 2.56 this morning, and reached Cleveland at 11.34 a.m., or nine minutes late, having made up forty-eight minutes between Chicago and Cleveland. The train attained a speed of eighty miles an hour on a number of occasions during the run, while the average time, including about twenty minutes lost in stops and slow-downs, was fifty-five miles an hour. The train, which consists of nine heavil...
