A MOUTH BATTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
A MIOUTII BATTERY. To be eating, drnnking, talking and sleep. ing with a primary electric battery in one's mouth sounds rather remarkable. But that is what a lady is reported to have being doing hltely, and, what is the most surprising feature of the case, doing it without know ing it. For though Nature compelled her to adopt attificial teeth, yet when they were bought it wasn't known that there was also purchased an electric battery at the same time. For though a battery wasn't saked for when the teeth were obtained, yet neverthe!eas it was unwittingly given. And she was carrying it about day and night in her mouth, and was not aware of the fact, save for a pain experienced in the tongue. Ultimately this became so unpleasant that a doctor was consulted. But his assurance was that there was nothing the matter. A visit, raid to her dentist, obtained from him" the statement that the teeth were perfectly sound; but having some doubts as to the truthfulness of the infurmation, and the p...

ELECTROPLATING SHIPS HULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
ELECTROPLATING SHIPS' HULLS. The elecsroplating of ships' hulls would appear to be undergoing a severe test in America. A steam tug of 200 tons and 9S feet long was recently purchased and placed in a dry dock. Whilt there the whole surface of the ship's hull below the water line was covered with a coating of copper one-sixteenth of an inch thick by applying to it, in sections, tanks or baths measuring about 5 feet Equare. These are cut to con form to the curvature of the vessel's plates, and then firmly braced and shored against the ship's side. They are only about IS inches in depth at the broadest part, and each bath is applied three times. ithe first time, after it has been mad, tight against the vessel's sides by cotton and oakum, it is filled with a strong acid sola. tion for cleansing purposes. There it is allowed to remain for twenty-foor hours, and when removed the spot is washed and cleansed again4. This completed, it is again replaced for twenty-four hours, and this time c...

THE wTeH WBICH Is ui2C01U'OEAresau: hea ` rraug us: tU . -FRIDAY, MAY aa 1589. Sixteen Hours a Day. A . disconcerting report has been circulated among the local towns-folk during the past fewdays to the effect that the Railway Commissioners con template the removal from Warragul to Melbourne of most of the employees resident in the township - some twenty families in all-and that in all probability the rumor would be verified at a very early date. It appears that representations have been made to the Commissioners complaining of the excessive number of hours the drivers, firemen and guards have to work, and requesting such an alteration of the existing system as would lead to a modification of the conditions, and at the same time enable the officials named to put in their present number ol hours per week. The men have no grievance in respect to their weekly total odf hours. They' simply com. plain at having to squeeze that total into abous three days. A man, for instance, under prese...

I saw a doctor, who said my lungs were weak; he gave me some medicine, and said I must not go out in the night air, but instead of getting better I gradually got worse, and I was gl?d enough not to have to go out at all, but lie down all day.
