NEW SOURCE OF RADIUM SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
,MW SOURCE OF RADIUM SUPPLY. Paradox Valley, in South-Western Colorado, is said to have become the richest radium-bearing field in the world. A small supply, from pitch blende residues, had previously been found in Colorado, and this, with the other limited sources in Austria and in Coriiwall, r?actically -completed' the - radium-bearing field. The newly-discovered source -is due' tosthe enterprise of the Crucible Steel Company of America (Pittsburg), among the largest producers of high speed tool steel.. -This company uses: vanadium ores in th , manufacture of its speciality, and, the :supply of the ores from South America falling low, it was decided -to prispect in- the Paradox Valley. -A lairge tract of minieral-bearing laid was purchased, and it was found to contain not only a large tonnage of vanadium ore, but rich depiosits of uranium, from which radium is cx tracted.

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
Bowling. By BOWLER. Notwithstanding that we are getting dangerously close to the winter sea son, the interest in bowling is not yet completely extinguished for the season. So enthusiastic are some bowlers that even if they had to play in waterproofs and leggings, they would come up smiling. All the same there has not been much cause for grief at the sample of weather that has been supplied to the bowling fraternity right up to the present. Last Saturday in the "A" section Jika District Competition, the final was won b:i Thoinbury against Ivan hoe, the scores being 94 to 74. The Knox Trophy (to be won twice) hias ddefinitely become the property of the Auiburn Heights Club under the - sonditions mentioned.

Last Saturday it went ahead another stage, and there wvere several representative bowlers as onlookers. There were some good cointests 'twixt bowlers from diff...
Travellers' Motor Cars in Chapel Street. Mr Ellis Stewart Formulates a Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
Travellers' Motor Cars in Chapel Street. Mr Ellis Stewart Formulates a Complaint. With the addendum of " auditor and ratepayer" to his name, Mr Ellis Stewart wrote thus to the Prahran Council-" Perhaps it is unknown to the council that the block in the traffic is caused on certain mornings in the week in Chapel street by the oars of commercial traveller' to the number of 50 and over. I his leaves little or no room for ordinary traffic and tram cars from 9 a.m. until 12 noon at least. The council, by regu lation, shunted the hawkers' carts, and in the interests of the driving public it is suggested that the council will be doing good by shunting the commercial travellers' cars into the many convenient side streets without delay, as the main street is often conigested by its ordinary traffic." CrGinn moved that the letter be simply received. The facts should bhe correct. The statement as to quantity and position taken up was devoid of truth. The council should do nothing that would te...

He reiterated the assertion that the present site would sell for be tween £500 and [600 per foot. Cr H. C. Heyward ...

Pies and Cakes. Risk of Contamination. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
Pies and Cakes. Risk of Contamination. At the meeting of the Prahran City Council on Monday evening last, a communication was received from the Board of Health, drawing atten tion to the risk of contamination of pies, cakes, &c., exposed on the out side of glass cases or on counters in shops. Prosecution of offenders was recommended. Or Morris agreed that there should be proper protection of food supplies. Cr Gino said the matter was an absurd one to come before the council. No doubt they had eaten pies three days old, or three weeks old, and yet they were still alive. (Laughter). There was too much spoon feeding. Cr Morris-I referred to pies. Cr Ginn-Referred to pies! He mixes up the pies with the Board of Works, and then gets " crusty" on the whole question. Let us deal with important questions, and not waste time. Cr Scott (with emphasis)-Then why don't you sit town? (Much laughter). The communication was referred to the health committee. -

GREAT AMBER DIAMOND NEEDS REGAL BUYER. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
GREAT AMBER DIAMOND hi?NEDS REGAL BUYER. Enormous in size, and glorious in -olour, a diamond is just now in Lon don awaiting the advent of some princely purchaser. It was found in the dry bed of the Vaal River, Cape Colony, by Mr. H. Bowker and his partner, their only reward for stren uous months of toil, but a big one when it came. It weighs 1781 carats, and therefore ranks amongst the greatest of the world's -gems. But its glory is its colour, which is --that of red amber. At present it looks, very like a nice piece of: barley-sugar with polished indentAtions and rounded-ol -corners. Mr. Bowker has shown it to several dealers, but has not yet effected a sale. They seem to think it is much too big for them. Experts gazed with -astonishment at the quiet-looking man-who, calling on them, unrolled a .it of - wash-leather and placed before them one of the most remarkable stones they.had ever seen. All were agreed as to the beauty of the diamond and its immense value. One said : "This m...
