Wh[?]t Invention Has Done.. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 23 May 1891

Wheel Invention, Mas Done.. What' has invention done? Well, this will serve as an example merely. It used to take by old methods, as compared with inventions now used, five times as much labour in boot making, flour making, three times as much in coal mining, six times as much in making tin cans, three times as much, in carriage making', and ten times as many looms can now be managed by one weaver. At a silver mine in Nevada a stream of water falling 460ft is made to turn a water-wheel, and gives 20g horse- power. The same stream is carried down another 16S0ft., and is caught on fix water-wheels, giving off 750 horse power, which by mean's of electricity is conveyed to the surface, and runs a 60-stamp battery. It is by the same inventions — the water-wheel and electricity — that the great task of using Niagara is about to be affected. Only 4 per cent of the water will be used ; it will not be noticeable, but that quantity will supply 120,000 horse-power. The power will not be used o...

Mining Nuggets. Tliere ^jras a good deal of} talk last week about an alluvial 'deposit being louhd fi'sar' Dan^dpngadale, on the Rose River. I did not mention it last week as 1- had- -no faith* in it, and wished. to hear more about : it. A friend of mine went up , -to see it, J a thoroughly practical prospector, and when he -returned he said it was no good, and that there had been some thirty or forty people there,; but all, with the exception of one man, had left. In spite of all, the news got to Melbourne,' /and two diggers came up by train from there only to be dis appointed. Doubtless there is a 1 ittle gold in that quarter, as small pros pects have been frequently obtained, but nothing of a permanent or paying character.-- — Observer.
