' A Remarkable Duel. * There is always something weirdly fascinating in the accounts of des perato struggles to the death be tween duellists, when often chance, and not skill, settled the encounter. ? One such case wus that in which ' Villeneuve, a noted duellist of France, insulted the sister of a young Englishman named Talbot, who thereupon struck him. As a consequenco a duel was fought on March 5, 1805. The conditions that thero should be two pistols-one loaded, the other not. Tliey wcro to be put into a handkerchief and drawn out by chance by the parties, who were afterwards to take their stand at a distance of only one pace from each other. The first choice fell to the lot of the Frenchman, who endea voured to choose the heaviest; the other was given to Talbot. They took their respective grounds, and so close that the muzzle of each man's pistol touched his ad versary. When both combatants were ready the soconds advanced "and took a. last farewell.

A Dangerous Gyroscope. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914

The gyroscope is constructed scien tifically, and is, while moving: round its axle, executing a circular move ment round a strong pillar sup porting It ; a woight at the hack insures tho stability of the appa ratus. The diameter of the wheel is about Jflft.; it is built like a bicycle wheal, and bears on one side a metallic fac ing .joined to tho axle by eight gir ders of iron ; on tho facing is fixed a track composed of small wooden bars, giving more "grip" to tho tyres. Tho bicyclo is somewhat similar to ordinary machines ; the handles are vertical, the front fork struighter, and tho wholo a few pounds heavier than ordinary bicycles. The performer entering it on his bicycle, commences by riding rapidly thus impressing a reverse movement to the gyroscope ; when this lias at tained a certain spocd, ho blocks his wheels by a powerful 'efTort of tho legs; the gyroscope therefore pulls him backwards to a certain height.
