1 HOW TO FILE AND SET A SAW. j Wlion Dan Rico invented tho fn nitiua Joke about "tho greatest saw to ovor sn,v'-" certainly the saw timt ho saw saw bore no sort of resemblanco to ninny of the saws which we see saw. Saws that snw Olios nerves as well as tho timber, screeching and gnawing through wood instead of cutting it smoothly and sweetly-that malte ono's back ache to witness their operation, nml heart ache to witness the useless expendi ture of power and labor in much of the work performed by this useful and, when properly made, tiled, and 6et, most efl'ectivq tool. A saw is a series of cutters, ar langcd either In one line or In two lines, according to the work to be per formed; and all saws used In wood work (and it is such of which wo speak) may be Included In two classes those w' ich cut across the grain and those which cut. lengthwise of the grain. Tho latter class has its teeth or cut.-ers formed so as most to re semble a narrow chisel or plane bit. The tooth of the former...

II [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914

A little kick, a shudder, and the great Gneugeot swept rushing over the grass of the aerodrome. Traill keyed the snoring engine up and up. then, with the easy lift of an athlete taking a hurdle, the plane was off tho ground. Traill's machine banked sharply, and the plane swung up in lyric cir cles en spiral. In a moment they were above the highest lace-work of trees, and before them in the clarity of the morning lay, like a pattern of bright jewellery, the valley that is the centre of X'omernnnSa. Traill hoicked his machine up quickly to avoid tho down-trend of the trees, swept gently to the left, and lu an instant had opened out, and they were skimming in their ef fortless and irresistible rush north wards. Tho Baronessa leant forward from the passenger seat and shouted in his ear. "Thirty-one minutes' start. Can we catch him?" Traill nodded to a trembling steel finger on a dial.

THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. Threo perspiring and explosive men and a woman as calmly beautiful and as regal as one of Bonguoroait's .Madonnas, called Frazer Traill out of bed in the bitter grey of the morning. Frazer Traill had been working late into the night, putting the final touches, to bin monoplane for the big .i.T>000 duration flight, lie was in an irritable mood, lie refused to per form the ceremony of donning an ade quate costume, and, in pyjamas and dressing gown, went down at tile heels of the night-porter to the bote! lounge. When be looked into the calm eyes of the woman, he wished at least lie had brushed his hair. The men annoyed him. They were excitable creatures, true Latin sons of the romerannia principality, in which they all were at that moment. They all talked together. They as saulted him with their visiting "cards. From the wild and eddying cloud of their conversation Frazer Traill un derstood that...

Musical Society. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914

MttsJcal Society. The Trafalgar Musical Society held what was termed by a pro minent Moe member as a "Con versazione" on Wednesday even ing last, and the evening was characterised by a spontaniety and whole-hearted enjoyment for which the Society arc noted in their less serious moments. A programme of songs and dances provided the members with mental and physical entertainment and the spirit that was infused in to the proceedings made time pass very merrily until the hour set apart for the absorption of the de lightful creature comforts provi ded by the ladies. Interwoven hoops of white artificial flowers with a set-off of artificial peach-tree branches formed a beautiful back ground for the supper tables which were most artistically decorated with miniature lights, enshrouded with a profusion of vari-tintcd autumn leaves. The president Mr H. H. Vail, during a respite in the "discussion" rose and stated that he had a most pleasing duty to perform oa behalf of the members, in the sha...

THORPDALE SOUTH. ru)H Our Own Correspondent TheThorpdale Sth. Bachelors held their annual ball on Friday, .June 5H1 The weather was perfect and there was a la rye crowd present. All of tho adjacent townships were repre sented. The floor was in first-class order and with the aid of the splen did mtisic'supplied by Mr. \V. Mon cur, every couple was able to glide along silently and gracefully ; in deed the Lovelnnd Waltz played made the dancers think they really were in Loveland. 'The supper sup plied by Mr Gilbert was one of tho main features of the evening and the pleasure seekers became almost speechless in their attempts to do justice to it. However, after supper, many vocal organs were worked to hoarseness. Mr Gilbert had included in the menu, tongue sandwiches (in advertently 110 doubt), so the cause of the extra talk was not hard to seek. The catering was of the high est order. Mr Gui:n acted as M.C. and Messrs L. and G. Gunn, acted aa joint hon. sees., and their efforts were th...

Correspondence. OUR ROADS. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914

Correspondence. OUR ROADS. (To tlio Editor) Sir,-I wish to express through your columns my disapproval of the way our roads are allowed to get in disrepair. The Seven-mile toad, for the want of maintenance metal, will soon be impassable. It would seem as if our councillors and officers have no time for anything but the Main Roads' Board Work. At the last meeting of the council, Cr Savage moved the engineer pre pare an estimate for the next meet ing, of the work from tho Moe river to the Eastern boundary. He might have gone a bit further and obtained the estimated cost from Trafalgar to Thorpdale, Yarragon to Allambec, Trafalgar to NVillowgrove and Cat tle Point Road. It will interest the ratepayers to know how our coun cillors intend to meet their share of the cost of the works when comple ted and maintain same, I presume we will have a rate of about 3s. in £1 struck to meet the cost. It is only a little of Willie Watt's social istic taxation, with the unimproved land tux tor the fa...

NIGHT VOICES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914

NIGHT VOICES. Uy ii. S. Soreusou in the "Sytlnoy Mail." ltecently Mr. II. Watson asked for information on tlio night voices o£ the bush, remarking that "there are oilier night birds besides tlio mopoke and Ihe night hawk-those barking birds, for instance, and another fel low which makes a sort of screech." What he calls the night hawk is the white-throated nightjar, a useful in sect-eater; and tlio. chap that yelps for his mate is tliu harking owl. There are many diurnal birds that are not altogether quiescent at night, nor do all tiie nocturnal cries come from birds. Koalas, possums, and squirrels make a lot of noise when a couplo of them have a disagreement. The pos sum calls pleasantly in peaceful hours, and the squirrel ofttiines vents a chat tering squeal as ho darts from one tree to another. Tlio most familiar noctures are thoso of the dingo, the mopoke, and the stono curlew (weelo, or stono plover). The dingo's howl is always a lonely sound; the call of the mopoke is sweet, h...

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no one lias been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his left eye. Somo say that the disaster occurred during the siege of Bastia, in 1793, while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. Ho saj'3 that it was in the year 1780, wTfen tho future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that ho received the wound whfcii added him to tho list of one-oyel warriors.
