POPULAR SCIENCE. Harnessing Niagara! [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE. Rarnessing Niagara I Atlasttheefforts olftho Yankees tolarneas the iniagara Fall, or,in other words to uriliep the enormous power running to waste at aiegars, have betn crowned with scecess. At the end of last month a practical test was made of the hydrarelio tunnel which has been under construction for the past three years. The re port says that when the gates were raised at the entrance to the feeder leading from the big hydraulic canal to the wheel-pit of the Niagara palls Paper Company's mill, the waters of the upper river rushed through their newly.foundobanneltothewheel-house, where they poured down the penetock of the plat, a huge iron structure 13ft. in diameter, for a distance of 153ft., then striking in an upward direction three of the largest turbine wheels ever built, and thence passing into the big tunnel and floweg out under the city to the river blow the falls nearly two miles dis tant from the point of the fall. This test hbows what many thouaands ha...
Poor Millionaires. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Poor Millionaires. 0 - Pity the unhappy millionaire ! Mr Andrew Carnegie, preaching once more his gospel of wealth and its responsi bilities, has a difficulty in perceiving how the daily life of the man without wea'th differs from that of a man who has it. Obviously, in the matter of this sort, much depends upon the angle of vision. The Carnegie Steel Company was able last month to pay a fine of 149,4S4 dollars for sending in ferior armor-plates to the American Naval Department, but Carnegie has hardly, in consequence, denied himself a single one of his usual luxuries. Were a poorer sman concerned it might be dif ferant. Carnegie says of the mil lionaire : He works just as hard as his poorest neighbor. As I remarked the other icht, the millionaire is the cheapest man in the commnunity. He works likes a slave, and all he asks of the community in return is his board and clothes. He may be happy in possession of millions, but still his enjoyments, and even his powers, are limited. He c...

Mechanical Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Mechanical Horses. Faust and Mephistopheles on their memor able ride were not mounted on more fiery looking steeds than those mechanical horses designed by Mr Charles Ingrey, M.I.C.E., for operatic purposes. In subdued light under a railway arch (writes a representative of a London paper), I saw these wondrous animals, with foaming mouths, fire-flashing eyes, ears pricking, tails lashing, gallopinr at break-neck speed-and yetstationary, so that the riding tenor could Bo justice to his upper C without any inconvenience. Stage properties will seldom stand a close examination so well as Mr Ingrey's inven tions. This gentleman, on engineer by profession, has used his knowledge of applied mechanics in a very ingenious way. He has made two horses, 16 or 17 hands high, anatomically correct, which are sup ported from their bellies with an iron tube. By means of a hand wheel, which moves in numerable levers, thebs horses' legs imitate thes extremes of galloping in a realistic fashion (which ...
HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
HINTS ON ADVERTISING. Advertising is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a timid, scared kind of way, as if afraid of being caught at it. It should be regarded as one of the niecessatiry ex penses of a business, and should be as regular as rent, fuel or clerk hire. It should be well done; there is such a thing as doing advertising so cheaply that no one finds out that it is being done iat all. If you have a good business you should advertise, lest comupetitors should take advantage of the great lever and outstrip you in the race. If your business is small you should advertise, and let the public know where you are and what you have to sell, that they may come and buy. Trying to do business without adver tising is like making faces in the dark; you may know what you are about, but others do not. The man who, without interruption can keep his niame before the public, is constantly informing possible cus tomers who be is, where he is to be found, and what he is pr...

Work First, Play Afterwards [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Work First, Play Afterwards " You had better doy oar lessons first," said Mrs Paterson. "But I do sowantto go out. Dora is waiting for me," replied Fred. *Yes, Dora has done her lessons." " It may rain later." "Oh, no; there is no sign of rain." " But Dora and I want to have a long walk and gather flowers." "Well, surely the flowers willbe there after lessons are done." " But I do want to so now," urged Fred. "Very good, Fred; you shall have your own way, and see what will come of it." Having thus obtained a reluctant consent, Fred left the room and joined his sister, Dora. A few moments later they were on their way up the lone. After a while they turned into the paddocks and took the path which led to the bush where the flowers grow. The spring sunshine was warm and bright; and the birds sng musically; and Dora was as light-hearted as the birds. But something was wrong with Fred. He was notashappy as be had expected to be. Those unlearnt lessons were heavy on his miod. He felt as i...
A Sinecure. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
ALSiecure. Sir Boyle Roche. was a fine, bluff, sol dierlike old gentleman holding some post at the viceregal court, sitting for a govern ment borough and always voting faithfully for the "castle." The debate one nightwas on sinecures, which Curran had indignantly denounced, and twitted by ono of the oppo site side on some personal inconsistency in the matter he replied hotly, "Sir, I am the guardian of my own honor." To which Sir Boyle neatly rejoined, "Then the gentle man himself has got a very pretty sine cure."-Argonaut.

Value of Intelligence in Cattle [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Value of Intelligence in Cattle A well-known breeder holds that the ideal cattle to breed from should have, in addition to the best beef-making and milking qualities, good brains. When ho sees an animal rushing aimlessly here and there in a sale-ring, he some times leans half-humourously to a friend, and rays, "That beast wants brains." As a matter of actual fact, writes "The Lire Stock Journal," one seldom finds much good in cattle that are narrow between the eyes. With such a formation of forehead there is usually a long muzzle and alean, lanky frame. A good milk ing cow of any of the ordinary breeds used in dairies has generally a muzzle of fair length, and with well-traced lines of beauty in it, but thoe forehead is broad, and the eves full. There is pleasure en studying what may be termed an intelligent head when one goes through a herd of flue cattle. The eyes are beaming mildly with contentment, kindliness, and a well balanced blend of many bovine virtues. There is a small wo...
AGRICULTURAL. Potato-Growing Experiments [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
AGRICULTURAL. Potato-Growing Experiments 0-o Moons. de Vilmorin has recently made to the Societt Nationale d'Agriculture de France a very interesting communication upon some po-. tatogrowng expferiments which he has been crrying on. The exceptional dryness of the summer of 1893 made itself felt upon the potato 1 fields as well as upon most of the other crops. I y comparing the table of theresults obtained at Verrires in good open land, deep and rich, with the fieres obtoteod in past years, et will be seen that if the tichnese of the tubers in fecula is almost the ame, the return in weight 1 of the diffuorent varieties is almost on-hait less in 1893 than it was in 1S2. This is chienfly, save Mions. de Vyl:dori, by the reduction of the volume and et tho individeel weight of ehe i tubers, which has trbn noticed in the decrease of the etur. It is a proof that exterior eon diticonas slightly iuence the varieties in the amount givec, a disposition which is inherent 1 to the variety iodepe...
Mule Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Iule Breeding. The report of the American Bureau of Animal Industry contains a paper on breeding mles. The following note is given as to the sevral varieties of jacks in the United States: We have the Catalonian, the Andalusian, the Maltese, the Majorca, the Italian and the Poitoi-all of which are imported-and the native jack. Of all the imported, the Cata lonian is the finest type of animal, being a good black, with white pointe, of fine style and ac ion, and from 141 hands to 16 hands high, rarely 16 hands, with a clean bone. The Anda lusan is about the same type of jack as the .Catalonian, having, perhaps, a little more weight and hone, but are ail nit colors. The Maltese is smaller than the Catalonian, rarely being over t14 hand, hi-h, hot is nice and smooth. The Majorca is tie lariget of the im ported jacks, the heaviest in weight, bone, head and ear, and frequently grows to 16 hands. These are raised in the rich island of Majorca in the Mediterranean Sea. While they excel in w...
Sanitation and Ventilation of Butter Factories. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Sanitation and Ventilation of Butter Factories. In the course of a very mnstructive paper read at a factory conference in Ireland, a member had the following remarks to makeo: There are various tests for sanitation and drainage. I should suggest the following test for a badly-drained, unsanitary dairy:-Let the cream for churning stand for twenty four hours in a shallow, wide vessel during warm weather in the dairy that is in bad condition, skim off about an inch in depth of this, churn it separa:ely from the remainder of the cream. According to the foulness of the drains and want of sanitary condition in the dairy will be the difference in the quality of the butter made. The top layer of cream will have been impreg. nated with organi~mo of an injurious character to such an extent as to cause the cream to yield butterof a bad character. Every effort should be made lo secure for factories a perfect system of ventilated drain. age. No drain should communicate directly ewith the buildin...
