ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. The condensation of moisturo in the rjtmosphcro-i.e., tho initial step in tho formation of clouds, fog, rain, hail, and Baoxv-baa been explained for rnoro than n generation by tho prcsenco in the air of myriads of minuto (mostly ultra microscopic) ''dust" particles, each of which was supposed to serve as a cen tre of condensation. Tho well-known ; instrument invented by Aitken, in 1888, | in which, after a small measured vol ume of air has been cooled by expan ; sion, tho resulting droplets of wator arc inspected through a mioroscope and countcd, is know as the " dust-counter/' bocuuHc it has been assumed that the ; number of drops formed in this procoss j represents the number of particles of [ " dust'' in tho given volume of air. This idea is intrenched in tho very latest works on meteorology in the Eng lish language, though qualified by the admission that in u highly supersatu rated atmosphere, such as may be pro ! duced at will in a labatory but hardly ...
A New Grader. MR T. H. PETTIGROVE'S INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
A New Grader. MR T. H, I'HTTIGROVErS': IN VIvNTION. Mr. T. II. Pettigrove, the well known farmer :it McMillans, lifts obtained letters patent for a new grader, -.which lie claims is an im- ? mense improvement-oil all existing: ? impliments of that important kind.. And to .judge from the unstinted and emphatic testimonials which are flowing iti upon the -inventor from thoroughly practical and ? rep resentative men, this claim is not at. all exaggerated. ; Tlie trials: to which the machine lias been lately;.: subjected have been,: of the most - severe and exacting kind, and ;out\ of each and all it .lias come triumph antly. The new invention is the result of many year's experience with the crude and ineffective impliments that have hitherto . obtained, and is held to meet a great and urgent need. The specific advantage claimed by Mr. Pethgrove for his Spring Heaver Grader is its enor mously greater control over the earth it is levelling! This control is achieved by a combination, of m...
HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. The recent accident to Mine. Pavlova in New York, which was at first repor ted to bo somewhat serious, recalls the fact that, like Paderowski, whose fingers are iusured for a colossal ?um against injury, the charming dancer has a policy which protects her against loss from ac cidents to her limbs, and especially her feet and dainty toes, upon which her art and her income alike depend. It has not yet beeu learnt how far the present accident comes under the terms of this policy, although it ia understood that the disablement of either of the big toes, would menu payment of £6000, "and of- otic of the lessor toes £3000. This, however, is by no means an ex ceptional insurance. Nijiusky, who re cently appeared at tho l'alace, and Mile. Genee have iusured themselves for sevo ral thousand of pounds against acci dents which would prevent Them from dancing, while M. I)e Bicre, the famous illusionist, followed tho example of some well-knowu musicians and insured his lin...
PYRAMID ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
PYRAMID ASSOCIATION. Macorna went to Appin on, Saturday l:ist to meet the locals, who were playing on their own ground for the first time: the draw for the first round gave them no match at home. Appin has a very strong following, and they turned up in force. Macorna also took out a good number of supporters, the result being a large crowd of spectators,.who anticipated an inte resting game. All were greatly disappointed as it turned out to be one of the worst exhibitions of football ever seen in this part of the world. The only redeeming point about the scramble was the close finish. , Macorna were lucky to come out on top. The final scores were-Macorna, 5.8-38 points; Ap pin, 3.16-34 points. Pyramid, 8.4-52 points, beat Ke rang, 5.6-36 points, the match being played1 at Pyramid. To-morrow's matches are - Ap pin" v. Kerang at Appin ; Macorna v. Pyramid at Macorna.

GYROSCOPE MOTOR-CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
GYROSCOPE MOTOR-CAR. A motor-car with a full-size botlv, but only two wheels, has been constructed by n Birmingham iiriu from the designs of Dr. 1\ Schilowsky, ami has, it is understood, proved satisfactory in pre liminary trials on fchu road. The two wheels are placed in line as in an ordi nary bicycle, and the machine is kept upright by means of a gyroscopic device controlled by two pendulums, which, when the car inclines to one side or the other from the perpendicular, brings the gyroscopo into action to oppose the tendency to overturning. The inventor claims that a mono-track motor-car run ning under gyroscopic control can attain a given speed with a much less power ful engine, and with a lighter frame and body th.n would be needed for a four-wl ..d car ol' the same rating; that as i; requires only a very narrow it is particularly adapted for use in new and undeveloped countries; that tho smoothness of running is greatly increased; that the cost of manufacture can be reduced; am...
CORK PAVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
CORK PAVEMENTS. A now cork pavemont is favorably ro garded by tho municipal authorities in various cilice. It is noiseless to tlu> tread, but r.t the same time durable. Jt is ft variety of asphalt paving, in which cork is substituted for the sand ot' tho ordinary kind, preventing slip periness, and Mentioning to an oven greater gegrco tho vibrations from pass ing vehicles. Snow does not freeze to it, ami as it is non-absorbent its qualities aeeni much superior to those of wood pavements. Tt is said to "stand" on heavy grades on which the ordinary asphalt cannot be used at all, and still atlord a perfectly safo footing. i'or schools and hospitals it would seem to be the ideal pavement, especially for courtyards, playgrounds, and streets around the building. Kor these pur poses, tho noiseiessness and cleanliness of the new pavement give it a marked advantage.
Football. THE COHUNA—GUNBOWER ASSOCIATION. COHUNA V. GUNBOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914
Football. THE COHUNA- GUNBOWER ASSOCIATION. COHUNA V. GUNBOWER. The play of the Cohuna-Gun bower Association, improves with the progress of the season, whilst in terest increases visibly. The match Cohuna and Gunbower last Satur day was one of the most exciting ever played at Cohuna, and the attendance was the biggest ever seen here. There were fully 400 people looking on : yet the gate money is reported to have been scarcely more than ^4. The un derlying cause of,this special inter est was the uncertainty felt with regard to the issue. Gunbower was known to be bringing several mysterious "dark horses" into the field, and there was a fear amount ing almost to a panic,that the visitors had a reserve of forces that would prove;more than a match for their doughty opponents. ,The locals were, consequently worked up' to the highest pitch of energy and determination. Their .strength was affected by the absence of Splatt and I'etrie, whose places were ably filled however, by Harris and O'D...

A GOOD' BEASON. An English officer, whoso ship was stationed off tho coast of Ceylon, went for a day's shooting, accompanied by a native servant. Coining to a par ticularly inviting river, tho officer re ceived to have a bathe, and asked tho native to show him a place where there wero tfo alligators. The native took him to a pool closo to the estuary. Tho officer enjoyed his swim, and while drying himself asked tho native why there were never any alligators in that pool. "Because, 3ah,f replied the guide, "tlicy plenty 'fraid o£ shark!1' Tlie teacher was instructing the youngsters in natural history.

BEETROOT LEAVES AS F0DDE3. Tlio process of drying the leaves of tlio sugar beet crop is being gradually evolved ui Germany on practical lines, and it ia estimated that when the pro o?ss becomes general it will represent an economy of something like £8,000,000 at present expended on other feeding stuffs. . According to experts, the value of the dried leaves is £3 to £3/10/ a ton, without taking into consideration the residual value of manure. As a fod der the dried leaves nrs eaten readily by cattle, and aro quite free from tho drawbacks arising from tho consump tion of largo quantities of tlio leaves in & fresh state.

WOMEN'S INTERESTS.! \ illy "Ainbrosju;/') All the new coats aiul costumes arc fashioned to show open-fronted collars anil low-cut vesta, winch prove so be coming to tho majority of wearers. The only drawback to this delightful fashion is that it tends to roughen and redden tho part of tho skin so exposed, leaving an ugly mark when evening dreis is worn. To remedy this a now preparation, introduced in the first place to whiten and soften tho hands, will be found invulnerable. This is made in tho form of scent, and a few drops rubbed iuto the skin night and morning does wonders in removing redness or roughness aud preserving tho natural whiteness of the skin. indeed, the little dressmaker of to day linds her hands full of work of this description just now, as a groat many women arc taking advantage of Fash ion's latitude in this direction, and in stead of buying expensive frocks are having their old ones unpicked and dyed, or cleaned anil covered with dra peries ot laco or ninon to me...

RECORD BY PARIS POLICE. SKAIiUlIINd TIIE WHOLE CITY. An extraordinary record has just boon made by tho Paris police, which shows that at any rate in the French capital, a noodle may be sought in a haystack in the words of the proverb-with some chance of success. A little while ago a man named Guimard v)as mur dered in a train, and tho persons sus pected of the crime was thought to have refuge somewhere in Paris. The Pre fecture of -Police decided that a simul taneous search should be made of all the hotels snd lodging-houses in Paris for hini. Accordingly, one moring, at seven o'clock, telegrams were received at all the various polieo .stations order ing that the suspected man should be huutod for in the horols in their re spective districts.
