A MOTOR-DRIVEN ROAD BUILDER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
*A MOTOR-DRIVEN ROAD BUILDER. A self-propelled road-building machine has been tried in Los Angeles with recsults that are said to be highly satisfactory : from the standpoints of elfficiency and econ omy. The engine which does all the work is a six-cylinder, distillate burning gas en glne, of 80 horse power, which operates a series of bucket .chains that dig the soil to any depth down to 18 inclhecs, and the tooth-ained buckets are so powerful that they will cut through a finished l)avement if it be desired to robuild old sti'eefs. The earth is picked up by these buckets, carried to a mixer in the body of the machine and thoroutzhly comnbined witlh any desired hinder, hot asphaltumn or crude oil, all in one olperation. A trailer contaiining the bhinder follows the macline, anidl it is neces- • sary to have a string of them in readiness as the device operates with great speed. The earth is dug uip, mixed, relaid and rolled at the rate of 50 square feet a minute for an eight-inch ldep...
SOCIAL CIRCLE SOCIETY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
oA CLE 8OGCETY LETTER. S Dear Nell, A great deal of energy is being directed - just now towards organising bazaars and sales. The Alfred Hospital bazaar to be held in Prahran is one of them. It was to have occupied thile unfortunate town hall, but it is hardly likely that that will be re built in time for it. There has been some talk of moving the town hall to I-igh-street, and there is a good deal to be said in favor of erecting new municipal buildings in the beautiful gardens there. The loss of tie town hall, as we have always known it, is a truly serious one. It was unquestionably the most beautiful hall in Australia simple, dignified and altogether satisfac tory. To return to the question of bazaars, bhowever, a mutua! friend who has recently been concerned with a good many money raising affairs in America, and has inci dentally studied what they are doing in England, has just been giving me .some valuable suggestions for stalls. "One of the most paying things," she remarks, "is...

CRICKET GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
CRICKET GOSSIP. BY SIIORT STOP. The fielding methods of the American baseballers might well be taken to heart by cricketers in general, more particularly in regard to the outfield catching and the throwing. The holding of the flies to the long field by the 'ballem was a miracle of certainty, and many catches. were taken with case which our cricketers would have no hope of getting to. The methods dif fer. The American sights the bail, and then runs head down to the right spot and gathers it in with the greatest ease, whereas a cricketer keeps his eye on the ball all the time, losing immeasurably by comparison. Again, the pick up and re turn of the baseballer is one action, the throw beinrg a snappy jerk of the wris... which carries the ball in a fast, flat, tra jectory straight to the desired spo'. Of course, the Americans have the adventi tious .tnd extremely useful aid of a special ly prepared glove. Th:e "mit" is of con siderable size, varying in shape from the catcher's glove to ...

LOVE'S COMING. She had lookedl for his coming as warriors come, With the clash of arms and the bugle call; But he cramne instead with a stealthy tread, Which she did not hear at all. She had thought how his armor wrould blaze in the .un As he rode like a prince to claim his bride In the sweet dim light of the falling night She found him at her side. She had dreamed how the gaze of his strange, boIld eye Would wake her heart to a sudden glow; Sihe found in hr;s face- the familiar grace Of a friiud she used to know. She had dreamdl how his coming would stir her soul~ . As the ocean is stirred by ihe wild t ' strife; I-Ie brought her the balm of a heavenly calm, . And a place which crowned Ler life. -Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
