A Priceless Naval Secret. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914

A Priceless Naval Secret. I It is tho common boliof nowadays that the nation which possesses the largest ships and tho finest and the most deadly puns is tho nation that would emerge victorious from n modern naval war. To a certain degree this is true, but tho part that is played by more recent inventions than cither guns or ships must not be lopt eight of, for in the light of modern discovery a great naval bnttlo might, to a certain extent, be decided before the opposing fleets had sighted ench otlior's mastheads. j To tho averago T3rilisher whoso 'knowledge of naval mnttors does not extend beyond stereotyped Ad miralty or newspaper reports this will at once sound ludicrous ; but does the man in tho street realise to what a degree the game of "blult" can bo carried on by one of the most, apparently, harmless of modern inventions - wireless tele graphy?

The Origin of Screws and Gears. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914

The Origin of Screws and Gears. Fremont, in his recent work on tho origin of screws and gears, brings out some interesting points on the subject. Tho Greeks are sup posed to have invented the scrow, hut tho two Roman authors, Pliny ami Vitruvius, glvo tho most an cient record wo possess on the sub ject, although it must ccrtalnly havo been known long beforo thoir time. Certain authors think that the idea of the screw coiucs from observation of a natural object of helical form such as n gasteropod mollusk, but Fremont thinks that it arises from forms in movement. For instance, when an edible snail fs drawn out of its shell, wo havo tho idea of screw and nut. Un fortunutoly tho ancient records throw scarcely any light on the subject. Tho principle of the screw seems to have been but little used until the middle ages, When it was first up plied for wine or cider presses. During the first centuries of our era bolt and nut was replaced0 by thieadless bolts having a hole con taining a con...

lJl'TJNtS BUOYS IiY WIIU5USSS. A German inventor, Grimtneiscn, claims to have found a method Tor using wireless waves In the best manner for lighting up distant lumps, by the use of an accurately tuned wireless receiver, nt each lamp, so that it is sensitive to <,mly ono wave pitch and no others. The wireless wuves net upon a receiver combined with a local relay . for working un electromagnetic switch so as to turn on the current or gas as the case may be. This idea is in itself now no new one, as we uro already familiar with wireless distant control devices, but tho originality lies in the close tuning of the receivers so that only a given wave frequency will work them. The device will Urns be a valuable one for scucoust lights, and especially for light buoys. lleforo this, sea cables were rim from the I buoys to shore to bring the cur rent, but such cables need to bo i very strong, so as to stand the sc | vere strain of the waves.

Why Women Should Ride Astride. SIDE SADDLES ARE DANGEROUS AND LIABLE TO CRIPPLE THE RIDER. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914

' Why Women Should Ride Astride. StUDK SAl'lDLKS AllR l»ANOEUOUS| AM) TO CUIPrLB THE UIUKU. ' (By l->r. V. V. MANNING.) . The anatomist and physician are aware that tho bony framework of -the. hunmu' Yenuito is as well, and even better, adapted to cross sad dle riding than is the framework of the luunan male. In the female, .that bony basin from which ,the hip bones ore swung, is wider from .side to sido than is the male, and consequently the articulations of the hip bones arc separated by a wider interval in the female than in tho male. The greater width between the hip sockets, and the resultant approximation of tho knees, secure to the woman equal weight and stature an equally firm scat and tho knee grip with the man. This holds true in spite of the fact that her contours arc not so sparingly cushioned.
