- THE STEER BRAKE. One way of stopping a fastmov ing vehicle, whether it be a train of cars' or an automobile, is to throw an obstacle in its path. The method is not always safe.

The inventor states tKat the rotation of the wheel is stopped 'almost instantaneously, by interpibSsini; l-etw?&n the wheel and the ground the roughened drag or shoe.'..

A CONCRETE POTATO-PEELER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
A CONCRETE POTAT&' ? PEELER. . .,v ' A potato-peeling machine of con' crete, the rough interior surface' of which constitutes the peeler, is .be ing manufactured in Chicago. The machine, is an urn-shaped vessel with a revolving disc in the bottom of the bowl. 'This cUsc is driven: from belGw, through' level gearing,! . at a speed of six hundred revplu tion§ per minute; and spins the po tatoes round the inside of the bowl. The rough surfaces, of the- disc and bowl rub off the skins, and sey&ral sprays of water, injected at the up per edge, wash the 'potatoes clean and 'earry the refuse out' at the bot tom. The peeled potatoes are re moved, and a new batch put iri' with- out stopping the machine. A do5r in the side of the bowl is opened at the proper time, and the pota toes are ejected by centrifugal force into a galvanised iron recep tacle. A half-h.p. motor furnishes the power, and it is claimed the po tatoes are peeled in two minutes. .

THE LIGHT BRAHMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
THE LIGHT BRAHMA. Although not so widely kept** as was formerly the case, the 5X-ight Brahma looks like regaining its lost popularity, and I am personally in clined to thmk that, taking all things into consideration,' the Light. Brah ma, if properly handled, will give as good an account of- itself as any. of the other breeds, and will suroass a great many of tjie ? breeds that are being boomed at present. No one will deny that the colour combina tion of the 'Light Brahma is the fin est th*'at has ever been put forth. 1T0 prove this all one has, to do is) to watch the crowds at the shows ; haw they stop aipd admire the- Light Brahma, while to the others they will give but a passing glance. The reason for this-is that fanciers recog nise the beauty of . these markings, and know that if they can produce these markings on their own . varie ties that they will have something that will interest the public.-' As a family fowl for country or suburb, the Light Brahma has no equal. While it m...

IMPROVEMENT IN ELECTRIC LAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
IMPROVEMENT IN ELECTRIC LAMPS. A substitute- for- .platinum in elec tric light bulbs is much to bp desir ed. This metal is very rare and costly, and even the minute pieces used in the 250 1 million electric lamps manufactured yearly have, a total value of more than 'j£ioo,opo. The proposition to use iroh.^vire^in its place has now been jnade Tay Dr 'H. J. Sand. . 'Hitherto only pla'.i num wire has been satisfactorily sealed into the bases of the bulbs on a commercial Scale, but Dr. Sand claims a method of sealing iron wire Yacuum-tight into glass, anji has made a successful demonstration o his process. The cost of iron for the lamp bulbs, if used in the place of platinum, would be. very small.
