He pitched into the counsel, and, after ft lively little fight, placed him 'hors de combat, after which business was re sumea. But it was not long before an other misunderstanding arose. , Crier !' cried the judge, ' we will ad journ this time for twenty ruinates.' ' Never mind, judge,' cried the counsel, ' keep on your coat — the point is yielded. My thumb's out of joint, and I've sprained my shoulder.' A man whose sanity was being inquired into was about to bo declared sane and to be reloaBed by the court, when he began to insist upon reading an original poem to the judge, lie is in the asylum now I

GAS LIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 27 June 1902

GAS LIGHTING. Few people realise that the use of gas antedates the discovery of matches. A few houses, indeed, were illuminated with gas previous to the opening of the 19th century, but it was in 1813 that ite pos sibilities were strikingly made known to the public through the illumination of Westminster Bridge. In 1805, howevir, David Melville lighted his house with gas made in a home-made apparatus. The apprehended danger of explosions made the first users of ga? Bomewaat timid, but experience shortly proved that the danger could be overcome and gas illumination spread rapidly over the entire world. Now gas itself is in danger of being sup planted. It is the better half that doesn't know as much about how the oth«r half lives as she would like to know. At a woman's convention a gentleman remarked that a woman was the most wicked thing in creation, ' Sir/ waB the indignant reply of one of the ladies, ' woman was made from man, and if one rib is bo wicked, what must the whole body b...
