TYPEWRITING MUSICAL SCORES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
TYPEWRITING MUSICAL SCORES. The- typewriting of musical scores is now made possible by a machine that has appeared on the French, mar ket. The same machine may be used for ordinary typewriting in several languages, the letters and numerals, and the musical characters or signs being carried on small drums. The drum for writing music contains eighty-four signs which, singly or in combination, produce all the charac ters necessary to write a complete score within a range of six and a halt octaves. The treble or violin clef, for instance, is written by four operations, the bass clef in three, etc., even the staff itself being written on the machine. The characters are not written side by side as usual, but in a vertical line. The musical characters are all marked on the keys of the machine along with the letters and other signs of the written language, in a dif ferent color. This arrangement is made possible by a simple mechani cal device connected with the shaft of the roll holding the...
ADRIFT ON AN ICEBERG A SECOND OFFICER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
ADRIFT ON AN ICEBERG SECOND OFFICER'S STORY. "''ail lio! Aressel right ahead, sir! She's close to us, sir! Port, sir, port!" yelled the lookout mail at two o'clock one foggy morning, as the Morning Herald was speeding along over the wintry seas of the Southern Ocean, bound for Valparaiso. "Hard a-port!" shouted the chief officer, who was on watch at the time, but had not seen the vessel un til reported by_ the lookout man. "Hardcover, man, hard over!" But, alas! the ship's head paid off too ; late, and, with a fearful crash, we struck, not a vessel, as it was sup I posed, but an Iceberg. I f was second officer of the ship, and it had boon my watch below at the time of the occurrence; but I bad been awakened by hearing the fran tic shouting of the man on the lookout, and the loud, eager, and ex citedly-given. orders of the chief offi cer to the man at the helm, and, hav ing an instinctive dread that some thing serious was about to happen, I hastily jumped out of my bunk, and slipping...

FEMALE DETECTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
FEMALE DETECTIVES. The adoption of women as police may be followed by a similar course in London. Scotland Yard, however, has, . of course, ? employed women for years, and one of the officials there told an interviewer recently that it is.probable that more women will be employed in the. .future to deal with certain kinds of inquiries and cases. ' "The old idea of the policeman's wife being used for detective work," he remarked, "is quite antiquated. At the present moment there are special* &lt;Iy-trained women working on-cases in ' London, and each carries -with her a small card which can be shown to any one who questions her authority. Wo men -detectives had their share . in the campaign against-fortune tellers in the West-end, and where women are to be watched and shadowed it is ob viously impossible to employ men for the work. Some valuable information in regard to the activities of suffra gettes was gained by women, but it would be fatal to their usefulness if these fem...
COMPOSITION FLOORING FOR SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
COMPOSITION FLOORING FOR SHIPS. A composition flooring has at last been invented which seems to meet the requirements demanded by ship builders for waterproof deck and floor coverings. The chief difficulty with other composition floorings has been that they are too hard, and cannot be kept from cracking under the strains and stresses of a floating structure. The new composition has such, resili ency and power of expansion to take 1 up the vibrations. of a ship and all changes in . temperature, from. 30deg. below zero in winter to 100 (leg. in the summer. In addition, the flooring forms a perfect bond with wood, steel, and concrete-so perfect that it can not be removed except with a hammer and chisel. As it is entirely mineral in character, it is absolutely proof against cold, Are, or watec. The com position is a mixture of asphalt, pow dered stone, and other ingredients, which is cooked In a mass for many hours. It is applied boilk.s hot and solidifies quickly. While it is per fectl...
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is the actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can give 'it in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, il travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days .for that snail to move a mile.

SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
SOME BULL'S EYES. . How the weeds do like the warm days after rain. Hit 'em a clip the minute they stick up their heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion for stock to break through. A staple or a post in time saves temper. It is just as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges of his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling and carries in the'coal. The man who wins, is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole , in the bottom, to some account The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in'farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by ski...
CAN YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
CAN YOU? Some,men seem to have such a good idea of balance that they can pick a long ladder up In. the middle, the first pop. Others can't, and so they try it a good while and waste a lot of strength. Just take those ladders now, balance them, and put a stripe of different colored paint right around thoside pieces at the right place. Or, paint the round at the pivotal point some color other than that o£ the rest of the ladder.
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Corks way be made airtight and watertight by keeping them immers ed in oil tor live ninutes. Ink stains 011 the lingers any bo re moved by slightly dumping the brim stone end of a ma .eh, and with ri b bing the stains. When boiling fowls or lisii. add to the water in which they are boiled the juice of half a lemon. This will make them beautifully white. If moths are in a carpet, spread a damp towel over the part and iron it dry with a hot iron. The heat and steam will kill the worms and eggs. livery woman who cuts Qjit from a paper pattern knows of the bother in pinning it flat to the cloth. Take a hot Iron and smooth the tissue paper pattern over the cloth, and it will re main lint without pins. To clean a mackintosh or dark cloths from mud stains, brush off all the mud and rub all stains with the cut surface of a raw potato, then sponge with clear water, using a piece of dark material tor sponging. Before blacking the stove, rub soap suds on the hands, allowing t...
Chill Proof. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
Chill Proof. The Duke of Fothcringill had given ? groat feast at FothcringUl Cnstlo to commemorate the comirrg-of-age of his son ami heir, the (lashing Lord Iiighcollar. To this function had been invited the journalistic representative of a leading "daily." On the scribe's return to Fleet-st. he was asked to relate bis adventures at Ihe ducal home, and, among the questions, someone asked him "if the duchess's affability had not somewhat embarrassed him." "Not a bit of it," ho replied, with thai air of serene ease, calmness, and seif-s:u isl'aet ion which sn eminently becomes him. "llefore I took lip newspaper work, my boy, 1 used to test refrigerators!" If thou canst not obtain a kindness which thou desirest. put a good face en it, show no discontent nor surli ness; an hour may come when thy request may be granted. A lawsuit was recently in full swing, and during its progress a witness was cross-examined as to the habits and character of the defendant. "lias Mr. M a reputation for b...
AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
AGRICULTURE. TECT YOUr. SEEDS. Testing clover, grass seed, etc.: Take two common plates ami get two pieces of cotton cloth about the six.' of the plates. Dip the cloths into warm water and spread one of them en a plate. Take a handful from the seed that is to be tested an:' place it on the fable. Count out lile seeds. Scatter these upon the wet cloth on the plate. Spread the other cloth over the seed and press it down. Then turn the other plate upside down on the plate with the seeds, leaving the cor ners of the cloths sticking out between the plates. Place where it is reason ably warm, and keep the cloths moist by sprinkling with water two or three times a day. Keep a record of the number ot seeds that have sprouted each day, until no more seeds show signs of lite. A week is as long as this should take. If ninety to ninety five seeds grow, the germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value of the seed begins to be doubt ful.
VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. One day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Yim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they ~love their work and are bound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of, the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?
