MOTOR AND CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
MOTOR AND OYCLING NOCYL Aft? closely watching the trend t things in connection with the advnt and progress or the cycle-car movement in England, one is forced to the corn clusion that thle true cycle car has nh made the progress anticipated. In the early part. of last year it was propb5. sied on all hands that thn cycle-lar was going to revolutionise motoring i England. It hasn't. But whilst there has been a slackening off in the ycle. car movement, the light car has bound. ed into popularity in England, and ap. pears to have come to stay. It is evident that the cycle-ear has not io far made good-it has not proved it. self capable on competing against the light car, whicl costs very lithr more but evidently gives considerably ,et ter results and more satisfactio. From this, one does not mean that none of the cycle-cars marketed are a success, for certain makes have won 4 considerable amount of success, but on the whole the movement has not "'caught on" to the extent anlicipat. ed.

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
The .Heart OF By HENRY FARMER, Authoi of "The Money-Lender,' "I2a Quiltry Street," "Bondage,, etc. (All Rights Reserved.) "'CHAPTER X.--Continued. Thorne's hand closed over the bank-note. The general public had con signed the Hasted bank robbery to the limbo of forgotten things. The police had pigeon-holed it. Only a very small portion .of the money stolen, in the shape of notes concealed in Stan more's bedroom, had been recovered at the time. The police theory had been, and was, that the bulk, composed mostly of notes,, bonds and securities, the greater part being more or less negotiable with caution, might after a time filter back into circulation, probably on the Continent. The race course was another recognised place for the getting rid of stolen notes. The police were pretty sure on one sub ject, whether Stanmore had invented the story of Roy Stannard to distract attention from his real confederate, or had worked the robbery single handed; when Stanmore had served his time he w...

NEW LANGI LOGAN. FUTURE DEVELOPMENT POLICY. " Thelatest letter from the mine mana -ger of the New Langi Logan, dated 10th February, gives the following in formation :- I opened north from the rise, drove 12 feet, and then opener off that east with an incline drive, and when in 20 feet the water came through the back, the wash being just overhead. The following morning the wash was on the poinit of back laths. The wash appears .to.be big, and composed of well water-worn stones, overlying a nice soft reef.

This sample came from the back of the drive. I only got a little in the dish, and obtained bet ter than I dwt., which should at least yield 2 ozs to th...

WONDER OF LIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
WONDER OF LIGHTS "If you had gone to sleep seventy years ago and awoke to-day what would be the most astonishing thing? "In his 'Mid-Victorian Memories' Mis R. E. Francillon answers the question It is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light. The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, the paraffin lamp, which smelt horribly, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago the light of the- home was a candle or two encouraged by snuffers. And; this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzled by the electric lights that turn, midnight into noonday. Our houses and streets have abolished night," says "The Westminster," "and the coming, of light would be the wonder of the man who had gone to sleep with a tal low candle and waked to-turn on the switch."
