INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914

INTERESTING ITEMS, Liverpool is to have the largest clock in the United Kingdom. Big Ben's dials are 22ft. 6in. in diameter; those on the Royal Liver building .will be 24ft. -Big Ben requires the services of two men for five hours every day in order that its great weight, weighing two and a half tons, may be drawn up 160ft. to keep the clock going. Those weights occupy the whole of the centre of the Westminster tower, and they re present a grandfather-clock on a tre mendous scale. With Liverpool's new clock, however, affairs will be different. There will be no weights at all, and no enormous pendulum comparable to that of Big :Ben. Instead, it will lie an electric clock. It will not need wind ing at all, the only requisite being a steady supply of motive power. Why a Horse Rolls. Horses are fond of rolling on the ground, and no animal more thorough ly shakes itself than they do. After a roll they give themselves a shake or two to remove anything adhering to the coat. The habit is.of...

WHY- PISA'S TOWER LEANS. According to the findings of a Royal Commission appointed to in vestigate the present condition of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it seems that instead of being supported on a massive foundation the tower rests on a ring-shaped masonary base, with an. inner diameter of 24ft 3.in, exactly the same as the inside diameter of the tower. The tower is about I77ft. high, and in 1829 is said to have been r41t. 5in. out of plumb; since that time its inclina tion has been increased by an addi cional o.oo0055 foot per foot of its height.

Proposed Street Hydrant. The conditions imposed by the Council upon Messrs. Swallow and Ariell'in connection with the pro posed erection of an overhanging hydrant, for filling'a new street watering cart, which were regarded as being too stringent and rejected by the firm, formed the subject of considerable discussion at the Coun cl committee meeting on Wednesday evening. The recommendation to be submitted to the next Council meeting is that Messrs. Swallow and Ariell be asked to state exactly what they are prepared to agree to in re gard to the conditions set out. If this course is decided upon by the Council, and Messrs. Swallow and Ariell are agreeable to re open the question, it is quite probable that the hydrant will be erected.

Window Breaking. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914

Window Breaking. James Postle, evidently mistaking the residence of station master Finney for the German trenches, commenced a heavy bombardment with blue metal last Thursday, smashing windows and doing other damage. When Mrs. Finney asked "'who did this ?" pointing to the broken window panes, Postle, look ing something of a hero, said " I did, and I'll break all the other glass in the house." When charged in court Postle did not take the .matter seriously. Help for Naturalised Germans. Many of our readers will have read two letters which appeared in the "Argus," from the pen of the Rev. R. S. Joyce, who, like most ministers, has been brought to see thehardship and dispair which have overtaken many naturalised Germans who reside in Port Melbourne, through being refused employment on account of the countries being, at war. The Rev. Joyce took up the attitude that the funds of our Benevolent Society should not be depleted whilst there are plenty of wealthy Germans in the State. The re...

Fortunes of War. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914

Fortunes of War. In our last issue reference was made to the straightened circum stances surrounding a young Aus tralian woman and her children through her husband, a naturalised German, being unable to obtain employment on account of feeling engendered, by the European war. It was mentioned that the posfibility of being unable to secure sufficient necessities and the threat of eject ment from their tenement caused her to interview Sergeant Sims. This should have read "fear of ejectment," and not " threat," as the person in question states that no threat was made to eject her, although sonie Sweeks' rent was owing, and that the agent had been particularly consider ate with them. The latter also assures us that no mention of.eject ment had been, made, and that when he referred the outstanding indebted ness to the owner of the house he expressed his sympathy with the young people rather than speak of having them removed. Where owners have such humane tendencies it would indeed be unju...

Hats are unknown. : The universal outdoor wrap for all ages and all sizes is the black shawl, with a deep silken fringe. It.'is folded with a short point above, and a long one below, and sometimes it envelops the 'fig ure from head to foot. In their atr tire-. the women of Venice are inde pendent, only wearing local cloth ing, but, with feminine inconsisten cy, they are thoroughly up to date in thie matter of hair dressing, the style of their coiffures changing from time to time, according to the vogue of the moment in London and Paris.
