DISCHARGED FKOM THE ARMY INCURABLE. CURED BY ' ».- Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ^_ ^ ? ? ? -fe^^^ mtAW © THE REMARKABLE CASE OF ALFRED SHAW. *^ A reportbr of the South London Press recently paid a visit to 59 Paradise Street, Lambeth Walk, London, S.E., and sought out one of those interesting, not to say ' unfortunate, young men— Alfred Shaw by name— who, having chosen a military career, experienced the remorse of being compelled to abandon it from causes over which he had no control. Mr. Shaw stands fine feet nine inches in his boots, and is in appearance a fine specimen of the hardy, robust young Britisher. ' You invalided from the Army I ' exclaimed the interviewer, in astonishment. 'By your appearance, you seem as fit to take a hand in the Soudan or any Other campaign as any man who donned a red coat.' ' So I am— now,' replied young Shaw, laconically. ' But it's Only during the past two months that I have become myself again.' And then he told the story of how Her Majesty lost a you...

Nothing New Under the Sun. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

Nothing New Under the Sun. You would imagine that the auto matic penny-in-the-slot machine was a characteristic product of the latter end of the nineteenth century (says a writer in the 'New Budget').- And you could probably make a wagrer at long odds that such a thing was unknown in the pudding days of the Georges. But I have just come across an automatic ma chine—dated. 1M0— in an old Gloucester shire tavern. You put a penny in the slot, and out came a pennyworth— a very small pennyworth — of tobacco. There are two such machines, to my knowledge, in existence. They are marked ' Slagg's Patent.' And I should like to know if they are unique.

Spray. Ages of Operatic Singers. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

Spi-ajy Aries of Operatic Singers.' j An ungallant writer in- the .French Press, M. Yve-Plessls, has been criti cising, the accounts given of the ages of 'actresses and operatic singers in a little work called ' Nos Artistes.' In all cases the dates given have been furnished by the ladies themselves. M. Yve-Plessis has gone to the records of the Conservatoire for his facts. At the time young people go to study there they have no motive for concealing their age, and there the records remain. The conclusion one arrives at is that there Is hardly one actress in Paris who can be trusted to be quite accurate respect ing her age. Some take off only a year, like Mdlle. Reichemberg, the little doyenne of the Theatre Francais, who was horn in 1853, not, as stated, in 1854. Mdme. Bernaert, of the Galte, however, appears to have taken off six years. M. Yve Plessis is not altogether without mercy. Ladles who1 have allowed themselves a still wider margin he pur posely omits from his list.

Effects of Cold. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

Effects of Cold. A German physician who accompanied a detachment of soldiers in the disastrous retreat from Moscow, states the ' Inde pendent,' has left an Interesting paper containing his observations On the mental effects of the Intense cold upon the sol diers. The first notable effect Is a loss of memory, the next a paralysis of the will. Soldiers forgot the names of the most common things about them — could not oven remember the names of the articles of food for the lack of which they were perishing. It is true that they were enfeebled and half-starved ; but it probably took a less degree of cold to produce the abovenamed effects In them than In men more vigorous. But the paper shows what occurs In a lesser de gree In the robust, in the psychic point of view, when subjected to long and in tense low temperature.

Cirrus Clouds. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

Cirrus 'Cloiitls. . ?? : '.';: ?;.. Helmholtz has attributed cirrus clouds to air waves produced when one stratum of air glides' over; another of different temperature and density, the lower one being . nearly saturated with aqueous vapour. The wave crests become cen tres of condensation, in consequence of clouds, while the depressions form trans parent interspaces.. On this theory a ' mackerel sky' is produced when two series of waves cross. ? Dr. Schelner seeks to explain the mottled appearance of the sun's surface in a similar way, suggest ing that the bright grains of the photo sphere are wave crests of two crossing systems of waves, made visible by an Increase of condensation. The distance between the grains is from BOO to 2000 miles, and it Is believed that waves of this size might be produced without as suming extraordinary velocities.

A Large Price for a Slight Concession. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

A Large Trice for a Slight Con . cession. £100,000 for a gain of ten minutes ! Such Is the price which the Gre,at West ern Company has thought it worth while to pay to the hotel proprietors at Swindon for putting an end to the ten minutes' stop which they bargained half a cen tury ago to make at Swindon for nil trains passing through that otherwise insignificant station. In Itself the ar rangement was eiobuiu, even in liiu uuuy days of railways, when the pace was so much slower than It Is now ; but In recent years the enforced ten minutes' stop at Swindon came to be a terrible drawback to the Great 'Western In run ning Its fast trains in competition with the London and South-Western to Exeter and other parts of the West of England. Various attempts were made by the rail way to get out of its bargain, but all have been unsuccessful till now. '.tv;' :; ?„; ? ,-.- ? ) '- ' ?*'?*?
