"THAT MYSTERIOUS INFLUENCE." To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

' THAT MYSTERIOUS INFLU ENCE.' To the Editor. Sir, — It would seem by w- at took place in Green-street the other day, that we are not quite past the day when there are people who seem to think that they are privileged to side-step the law, and to be offensive when a constable realises his duty, and also that he is paid by the gen eral taxmver arfd that the averatro i » ^ ? temperate taxpayer is not too easily set aside when~t he laws of his coun try requiros to be maintained. Let the bombastic individual, who went so far as to say, ' Do you know who I am ? I will report you,' allow his vanity to carry his threat into effect and its consequeuce will be watched with interest. Permit it to be said that the constable might not know the bombastic individual, but the writer does, and maik it well, or put into the pipe and smoke it, the law relating to the cause of dispute will be upheld regardless of ' Mr Do You Know Who I Am.' I am, eto., I DO.

A TRUE "SPORT." [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

A NEW COMPASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

A NEW COMPASS. A form of compass which auto matically registers the route follow ed by a ship has been invented by a Frenchman. It is a matter of practical experience in navigation that the steersman often varies from the course set for him in ad vance, and sometimes the final ef fects of these variations may be come serious. The new compass preserves a record of all the depar tures made by the ship from the set course from one end of the voyage to the other, and this record may be consulted at any time. The compass is connected with an elec trical apparatus in such a way that once every minute the angle made by the ship's course with the mag netic meridian is recorded by means of an electric contact. The records are made on a moving roll of pa per, whose motion is so timed that the hour and minute of the contact are automatically indicated. Thus the ship's captain has continually before his eyes a chart of the course that helhfl® . *rai«»r«»d_4_ ? ?

It is presumed that most photo graphers make mistakes, and all pro bably have a stock of oia negatives' on hand for which they would like to find a use. The following method is suggested by H.

Hav ing now a nice pile of clean glasses, he° selected a corresponding number of prints and turned the whole into small passe-partout framed pictures.

EXTRAORDINARY GRADIENTS ON BRAZILIAN RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

EXTRAORDINARY GRADI ENTS ON BRAZILIAN RAILWAY. ? ^ The steepest gradients of any rail way built with ordinary rails are found in Brazil on the road joining the bay of Rio de Janeiro with Nova Friburgo, where grades of 92 in 1,000 are encountered. It requires a three-truck locomotive, weighing tone, all the wheels of which are drive-wheels, to draw a train over j this bit of track at the rate of 10 miles an hour. During the descent of. such grades the brakes are used, and for the steepest places the loco motives are equipped with special brakes that act on an auxiliary rail | set between the regular rails.
