THE SPIRIT OF PROGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Benalla Ensign — 18 February 1938
THE SPIRIT OF PRO GRESS IT'S a far cry from Berosaus (Circa? 150) who invented time, to the ultra-modern. Victorian train, "The Spirit of Progress." Yet there is a link. Berossus spent o life-time in Babylon trying to divide the day' into equal parts. Before he lived, it was.": just morning, evening and night. Berosesase's great discovery revolu tlonized the then civilised world.. Berossus wanted an accurate meal-; - ure of time, and so do the drivers of the Spirit of Progress. Accurate time-the human world depends on accurate time, a train service exists on accurate time to prevent aci-. dents, to run efmciently. Omega the perfect watch, is sold by Mr Nicholls, of Nicholls and Sullivan. Omeg4 watches were used in the great Ber lin Olympic games to dcplde world records. Omega watches were used Omega watches are the Iest word in accurate time keeping. The Victorian railways have lssued Omega watches to every one of their: crack drivers.
