PHOTO-ENGRAVING. A new and important process for the 'above object isdescribed by Mr. IH. Iein bold, in the currcnt nsmber of the Scican uic Asscrican. Though the processes of ;lciscnbach and Ives have given splendid results, they are too expensive and too iuncertain. In the Meisenbach lprocess t three photcgraphic plates have to be made, and, as a matter of course, this makecs it slow, dependent on the light; and as many of the fine details are lost by copying the subject three times, most of the plates have to be worked over with the tool. As is well known, the above-named processes of prodncing photo-engravings fromnatnre so as to give them the appearance of a phloto graphs, are based on the dissolution of the photographlic tints into dots and cross lines. The inventor of the process under review has long experimented with the ~IMeisenbachl process, and has been a prac tical photo-engraver for several years.

A MARRIED MAN'S EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 1 January 1886

A MARRIED MAN'S EXPERIENCE. Instead of the better-half thinking of what she should have attended to before going to bed, she thinks of it afterwards. Whileshe, very snuglytucked up in bed, is revolving, these matters in her mind, the old man is scratching his legs in front of the fire and wondering how he will pay the next month's rent. Suddenly she says: "James, did you lock the door ?" "Which door ?" says James. ."The cellar door," she says. "No," says James. "Well, you'd better go down and lock it, for I heard some persons in the backyaid last night." Accordingly James paddles down stairs, and locks the door. About the time Janies ieturns and is going to get into bed, she remarks: "Did youshutthe stair door?" "No," says James. " Well, if it is not shut the cat will get into the bedroom." " Let her come, then," says James, ill-naturedly. "My goodness, no," returns his wife. ? She'll suck the baby's breath." Then James paddles downstairs again, and; closes the stair door, and says ...

COUNTRY NEWS. (FROI OUE OWN CORE8RPONDENTWB.) BARADINA, DEC; 29. One of the most successful concerts over held in Baradina took place on Boxing Night, in the local Court-house, its object being to swell the children's school firize fund. A goodly sum was realised, and we look forward toanother such entertainment at a not very far distant date. A local mechanics' institute is much re quired. While sports of any description receive great attention, no one seems in clined to take any interest in matters of this kind. Although I believe an attempt was made some time ago to build a hall, through want of energy it turned out a failure. The weather since last rain has beeoon very warm. The feed is looking well, but it will require a great deal more of tihe precious fluid to do any good. Several mobs of travelling sheep passed during last week.

A CLEVER BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 1 January 1886

± orcsa~nor. The invention of the valvo motion was made by a nere-oy; Newcomen's engine was in a very incomplete condition, from the fact that there was no way to open and close the valves except by means of levers operated by hand? He set up a large engine at one of the mines, and a boy (Humphrey Potter) was hired to work these valve-levers. Although this is not hard work, yet ,it; required his constant attention. As he weas working the levers he saw that parts of. the engine moved in the right direction, and at the same time he had to open and close the valves. He procured a strong'cord, and made onie end feast to the proper part of the engine, and the other end to the valve lever, and the boy had the satisfaction of seeing tlhe engine move with perfect regularity ofe motion. A short time after the foreman came around, and saw the boy playing marbles at the door.
