Motorists in the Mountains. EXCITING EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917

- Motorists in the Mountains. EXCITING EXPERIENCES. A PARTY of motorists, consisting of Messrs A Evans (Myrtleford), Mr Seymour (Wangaratta), L. Roche (Whorouly) and J. Cirthew (Myrtleford), who were being driven by a firat class chaffeur on a busi ness trip 'to Omeo a few days ago, had very memorable experiences as a result of ? a break-down of the car. The car left Wangaratta on Friday morning, the route being via Bright, Harrietville and the Hospice. After -passing Harrietville the road is steep and rough, and it requires an accomplished driver as well as a good car to negotiate the road. Up to the Hos pice and beyond the party were delighted with the excellent progress under most difficult circumstances, and their praises were divided between the car and the driver. Suddenly a grnting noise was heard underneath and the car stopped. It was a case of " get out and get under," and the party felt much relief from the fact that the chauffeur was a competent motor mechanic; but examin...

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917

Sporting., FIRST TRIM, True White, Tom Castro and Ranger are among the horses en gaged in the Autumn Handicap at Hawksbury to-morrow (Saturday), and the former looks to have a good chance. Last year, a Caulfield-trained horse, in Green Cap, beat the big field in this race, . and subsequently ran a good second in the Sydney Cup. C. Wheeler was unfortunate in losing . the services of Patrobas for the Sydney Cup meeting, as the son of Wallace looked to havea mortgage on the weight for-age races, and might have won nearly ^£5000 in stakes. Wheeler, though very lucky in Melbourne, has met with mixed fortune in Sydney. He previously had both The Parisian and Land of : Song well forward for big Randwick engagements when they broke down. H. Cairns will pilot Whitefield in the A.J.C. Doncaster. Whitefield's admirers for the big mile race are increasing every day, and at q o he must run very well. Before he left Caulfield, Whitefield was looking in great heart, and he will strip a fit horse. ...

The Earth An Atom. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917

The Earth An Atom. AH matter Is supposed to consist of a number of molecules, and mole cules, themselves, to consist of a num ber of atoms. It is possible that all matter may be one in essence and that it is merely the difference in the num ber, arrangement and movement of the atoms in a molecule which causes matter to take the form of iron, gold, diamond, etc. At present, it is im possible to demonstrate absolutely these assumptions. The most power ful microscope fails to render visible the atoms; of a molecule or even to disclose a molecule. Our earth may be but an atom, It, together with the other planets, revolving around the sun as a nucleus, forming a molecule of the universe, so that a being, stu pendous enough to take the whole fir mament of stars in its hands, would i find the firmament present to him the same appearance which solid matter does to us. Indeed, the sun and its planets may be the archetype or mod el of all molecules with their consti tuent atoms, identical for...
