ALL SAINTS' CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

ALL SAINTS' CHUHCH. The Harvest Festival services at All Saints' Church, Terang, wore conducted on Sunday last by Kev. ^v. D. Davies, of C'amperdown. The cimreh was deco rated with much taste and skill. Tho aisle was converted into an avenue of bulrushes, and there was a plentiful dis play ol' flowers, fruits and produce. Mr. Da\ ies at the evening service took for his text James 5: 7 and S "lie patient, therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the prccious fruit of the earth, and hath long pati ence for it, until ho receive the early and tlie latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh." lie said a harvest- festival offered many thoughts for their consideration, Iand one of these was the lesson of patience. Of all the occupations in which men engaged, that of the farmer was the one winch made most demands on patience. It was the man of the soil who had to learn most thoroughly tho necessi...

LEAPING SLEDGE TO CROSS THE DESERTS. AEROPLANE PRINCIPLES APPLIED TO OUST THE CAMEL. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

LEAPING SLEDGE TO GROSS THE DESERTS. AEROPLANE PRINCIPLES AP PLIED TO OUST THE CAJIEL. Motor-sleighing in the Sahara De sert may bccomc a sport, after the success of experiments now being made there with a new type of de scrt-ship designed to oust the okl fashiuncd camel. One vehicle, designed by a corporal of the Frcneh flying corps, has sb: wheels and is driven by an engine of 50-h.p. operating an aerial pro pellc-r. But another is a more in teresting invention — n vropellcr sledge. The idea originated with a cor poral of the Military Aviation Cen tre, nt. Biskra, in Algeria. His; sledge is driven by a GO-h.p. aero plane motor, capable of carrying three persons and of travelling easily over sand dunes at 12 to 20 miles an hour. The original idea oi Corporal Cro3 was to construct n sledge to convey aeroplanes in the dr-scrt across the sand dr.nes of the Grand-Krg, whi-h has hitherto been impassa!.de to every vehicle and every animal.

DIVING MADE EA[?] NEW INVENTION. DEMONSTRATOR TAKES A WALK ON BED OF THE SEINE. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

DIVING [WADE EMw NEW INVENTION. u DEMONSTRATOR TAKES A WALK ON BED OF THE SEINE. A foreman in a Paris parquetry firm has invented a simple device to supplant the old time diving dress, and has given a practical demon stration in the Seine. The new device is a narrow india rubber gsg which the diver fixes over his mouth and straps at the bad: his head. The gag is hei'metic, and through the centre runs a tub?, which widens like a trumpet and fits the mouth. The air is conveyed into the mouth by a length of rubber tube, and is supplied by a common air pump, Jvike a bicycle pump, worked by a man in the boat. The diver only needs to hold in his hand a weight of a few pounds to enable him to walk about on the bed of the river. At the first sign of danger he lets go the w«ght and springs up to the surface. M. Ferme/, the inventor, descended twice in an ordinary bathing suit, with his apparatus, remaining more than ten minutes under water each time. His walk along the bottom of the Seine co...

ANCESTRAL BROLLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

ancestral brollies. Nowadays one can buy an excel lent ,rgamp" for hali-a-erown. When however, umbrella's were first intro duced into the United Kingdom they were very much more expensive. Nor was their appearance greeted with approval. Accoiding to some authorities, a man named Jonas Hanway brought the first umbrella to London early in the eighteenth century, but there seems to be evidence that they were known in that country before that time. Thus a poet, in 1G30, refers to ■'umbrellas, with their feathers, which shield you in all weathers." Swift, . ■ too, in 1710, mentions the umbrella in the "Tatler." Anybody who dared to appear in public in those days with a "gamp" was sure to have a crowd of people jeering at him for going about with I "a walking-stick in petticoats."

Professor William Gowland de livered the Huxley Memorial lccture before the Anthropological Institute. Professor Gowland showed how the I whole of the world's history may have been changed by the chanco action of some person of lh< late Stone Age whilst seated round his camp fire. "Why the discovery of the art of extracting metulB was so long delayed," said Professor Gowland, "it is impossi ble for us to conjecture." But it was his opinion that man first be came really acquainted with metals through the reduction of either cop per-ores, tin-stone, or brown hema tite in the ring of stones surround ing the domestic fire. The cakes or lumps so produced would natu rally attract the attention of pri mitive man, and if he attempted to fashion them, as he was accustom ed to do in making his implements of stone, he would then become ac quainted with their curious proper ties of malleability and toughness which were wanting in his custom ary materials, and so be led apply them to ...

Sugar from Sawdust. -L : In tlie course of a paper read ba foro the Royal Society of Arts, Sir. •U; Zimmcrm&nn described a process by, which sugar might be manu factured from sawViust. | In its natural state, lie pointed but, wood contains no sugar, but when sawdust has been subjected in closed retorts to digestion with a weak sulphurous acid solution under pressure of six to seven at-' mospkeres, a very. remarkable transmutation takes place, as mucli as 25 per cent, of the material be ing converted into sugar. In this Mr. Zimmermann claims that we have a valuable feeding-stuff for horses, cattle, and sheep. Draught horses, in whose daily ration 41b. of "sacchulose-molas ses"- were substituted for <llb. of oats, were kept under observation for seven months, and were all found to have increased in weight, while a colt, which was in so weak a condition that veterinary, sur geons advised its destruction, put on 2601b. in six months, and is now in excollont condition....

DICE IN ALL AGES. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

DICE IN ALL ACrES. The simple little squares which we shake up in a box and throw in games of chance are so old that their origin is lost in the mists of antiquity. Certainly dice in var ious forms have been used in re ligious ceremonies since the dawn of history. The majority of dice have been made in the form of cubes. In practically every variety also, the numbering has been the same. That is to say, the six and 0110, five and two, three and four, have been opposite one another, thus forming the magic total seven in each instance, A . curious form of dice had six sides, and was made to spin nt a twirl of the thumb and second finger, and specimens of dice have now. b«en 'discovered in Babylon. 1404..

Cinema. FIL3I MACHINES AS SALESMEN. Of the uses to which the cinema tograph has been put, one of the I most interesting is the manner in which it is being utilised to-day for the selling of big machinery. Be fore the days of the cinematograph, firms dealing in huge agricultural, building, and mining machinery i either had to pay, the fare of pros peel ive purchasers to and from their factory to see the machines working-, or try to sell the goods by moans of illustrated catalogues, which were generally regarded as un s-'.ti!-f;.ctf.ry( for the simple reason ihat it was impossible to demon v.ivte the real capabilities of the iii;ciines. To-iiny, however, these firms sim ply have moving pictures taken of iheir floods, which their agent or their traveller takes with him and ixhpits to prospective buyers in il.cir ollices, a remarkable cinema tograph machine having been in vented for the special use of tra vellers, which can be carried in a compact little case, together with a miniature ...

Former Warship Gifts. m Gifts of warships to the Imperial Navy have been made before. la 1836 a war vessel was presented to the Navy by the Imaum of Muscat.
