ITEMS OF NEWS. Sausages Made by Electricity. The uses to which electricity is put are many and varied in character. Nothing seems too large and nothing too small for its energy to be direct ed to. An instance of how easily the electrical power can be employed is afforded in the premises at 416 Bay street, occupied by Mr. F. Daws, butcher. In a special building which he has erected in the rear of his shop there Mr. Daws has installed an elec trically-driven sausage machine. The motor is of three horse-power, en abling the proprietor to turn out, if need be, about five or six cwt. of meat every 'day. There are three opera tions in the manufacture of the fin ished product, and all are carried on at a maximum of speed, and with a minimum of smell, sound or heat. The chamber in which the sausages are turned out is delightfully cool and clean. Now that day consumers are wanted for the electricity in Port Melbourne, other tradesmen might profit by the example set them by Mr. Daws. Port Mel...
