AEROPLANES V. DIRIGIBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
AEROPLANES V. DIRIGIBLES.. Five hundred rounds of ball cartridges were successfully fired from a machine. gun mounted on the upper deck of the marine Zeppelin II., at Friedriehsafen, The airship was travelling at the rate. of forty-five miles an hour in a strong. wind. The gun was handled with ease and precision. Recently the marine Zeppelin I. remained in constant wire less colmmunication with her homc sta tion while the airship was making a twelve-hour fight during which time she could have come to England and return ed. The born enemy of the dirigible is, of course, the aeroplane, in which Eng land is specialising. The aeroplane, for instance, has much greater elevation powers than the dirigible.. It can climb to 18,000 feet, and then its endurance is about exhausted. The Zeppelin can rise to 10,000 feet and then travel for twenty hours at that elevation. The dirigible has an average speed of forty miles an hour, against the seventy-five miles an hour of the aeroplane. But no aer...
THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. The too closely penninig of pigs (ex cept :ulhile topping up) is a mistake. In :;a stai.e of iiatreo the pig is a grazing .inimal: For breeding and growing pigs. a:grass outrun is profitable. Admitting thi t. pigs must be fed differently, from otheir stook, when housed, yet grass is ýstill 't natural food to them, even as "it is to horses and cows. Pigs graze as close to the grund as sheep. It is :sometimes stated4 that pasture deterior iates :under cows, but whether this be so or not, pigs benefit.pasturage, and S'apidly improve poor quality grass. Even the very youngest pigs running w?ith the mother will graze a little, but 'should be given some other food ,as well. Shade and shelter are neces :sary. Sunburn is to be guarded against Even with larger pigs, a sudden change from dull to sunny weather- during the hotter portion or the year means sunburn. "When grass is` plentiful, store pigs of all ages oan be run on it cheaply, _and need but very. little tro...
A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
A LAKE OF SOAP. One of Nature's marvels is to be seen in the north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake which bears the name of Soap Lake, and is three 'miles in length by one mile in breadth. The water in the lake tastes like a mixture of soap and salt, and its peculiar properties are such that.-when the water is heated, no soap is required for a bath, for as soon as the water comes ,into contact with the natural oil of the skins it is gently rubbed, it forms a beautiful lather . The only drawbliack is that when ap plied to the head, one's hair is apt to turn from its natural color to a dusty red, if not washed with fresh water. In other words, it bleaches, the soda in the water no doubt being the cause of this. The Soap lake is well-known through out America on account of its wonder ful healing properties. Indeed, 'it is asserted that its waters provide a oure for all the ills the flesh is heir to. Rheumatism, skin diseases, stomach and blood disorders-all seem to ...

LIVING=IN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
LIVINi-IN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES.

"You will hardly credit it," he continued, "but that very firm had a list of rules, one of which read: 'Any member of the staff leaving meat on his or her plate will be fined six pence.' "

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L.C.C. tramcars are "the latest thing". A six months' experiment with them on tramcars running from the Ham mersmith depot is recommended by the Highways Committee of the LIC.C. The machines are to be fitted to the upper "saloon" decks. The proposal comes from a Mr A. H. Vincent, who is pre pared to pay a rent at the rate of £2/10/ per car each year. If the experiment is a succes-s and the roof-covered cars over the tramway system generally are fitted with these boxes, the Highways Committee thinks that a revenue of nearly £400) would be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add, "the supply in the Council's tramcars of cheap and wholesome chocolate would confer a considerable benefit upon the passengers using the tramways" particularly in the case of the all-night cars and the workmen's services. From automatic machines for choco late (says "The Daily News") it seems but an easy and natural step to ...
