OUR YOUNG FOLKS. APPLE CUTTING. A Clever Trick That Young Folks Will Want to Learn. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 March 1891

OUR YOUNG FOLKS. ? — — ? APPLE CUTTING. A Clever Trick That Young Folks Will Want to Learn. In a recent number, e&ys ' Golden Days,' we bad a word to say on catting an orange within the peel so as to leave the peel in a pair of interlaced baskets. This seems to have amused some of our readers who were carefal to follow oar instructions, though it worried a few slap-dash workers, who, as asual, knew all about it before they began. One of these impatient once asked us, ' in revenge,' if we can cut an apple in half with out cutting the peel. We can ; but for the entertainment of those who have not tried the apparent impossibility we will tell how it is done. Wiil you please look at this illustration for a nan ate or two ? it shows three figures, being three stages of tbe experiment. The third stage should perhaps have come first, as it is the ono with which the 6tranger first APPTffi COT p; ITS PEEL. makes acquaintance.

M. Pasteur. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 March 1891

HI. Pasteur. In front of the Pasteur Institute, in Parip, ie a bronze statue of a French Bhepherd boy engaged in a death struggle with a mad dog which had been worrying his sheep. With bare hands, and with no weapon save his wooden sabot, the boy killed the dog, but was horribly bitten in tbe fight, and this Btatue represents an actual struggle which took place in October, 1885. The event gave the now famous French savant his first prominent opportunity of experimenting with his anti-rabic treatment upon a human being. The treatment was successful, and from that time to this many thousands of persons who have been bitten by rabid animals, of all aountrieB and all stations in life, have been visitors to Pas teur's laboratory, to receive such treatment as would insure them, so far as human science could do eo, against a horrible death. The French nation raised a monument the discoverer o! this anti-rabic treatment in the ehape of the ' Pasteur Institute,' and there are now many simila...

The action for slander brought bv Mr W* O'Brien, M.P., against the Marquis of Salisbury has resulted disastrously for that gentleman. The action was tried at Manchester in. July, 1889, when the plaintiff' claimed £10,000 damages in respect of a state ment contained in a speech delivered by the defendant on March 19, 1889, in which he accused the plaintiff . of having incited to murder and- robbery.

THE SOIIMCE OF SCIfiKOE. How the Bessemer Process was Invented. Sir Henry Bessemer, in a letter read at the meeting of the iron-masters in Pittsburg, gives some details of his first trials : ?' At the time or the Crimean War I had invented a modA nf firmer ulnntratcH nrnip.n. tiles from a smooth-bore gun, the rotation necessary to insure their proper position during flight being obtained by utilising a portion of the powder gas to produce rotation by reaction, after the manner of producing rotation in turbines, and not by the rifling of the gun, consequently rendering all smooth-bore guns at once suitable for firing elongated shot or shell. I, of course, offered this plan to our own government, but it was discarded without a trial. - ?' A little after this period I happened to be on a visit for a week or two with Lord James Hay, at the house of his daughter, at Paris.
