WOOD BLOCKS FOR SHAVINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
WOOD BLOCKS FOR SHAV INGS. A machine has been invented that turns sawdust, shavings, and chips into solid pieces of wood. The ma terial is carried on a rotary belt to the machine's hopper, thence to a plunger or compressor. Through the centre of the mould into which the shavings and sawdust are forced is a small hempen rope. A pressure of 20 tons per square inch is exerted, and the solid body is driven out of tho machine in a shape similar to a round stick of wood of 4in. diameter. The machine is said to turn out about six tons of sticks per day.
LIGHT FOR THE DROWNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
LIGHT FOR THE DROWNING. The very latest device for lifesav ing at sea shows an interesting de velopment. When sailors or ocean passengers fall into the sea, by night, no matter how strongly they may be able to swim, the darkness is al ways a tremendous drawback. The new lifebuoy, however, will remove this terror, for immediately it touch es the water the lamp with which i#t is fitted is automatically lighted, and sheds a cheering ray for a consider able distance. It guides as well as cheers, for others in danger can see where support is to be had, and the buoy will keep some nine or ten peo ple afloat. Another great advantage is that passing vessels are more like ly to observe that help is wanted, and it is the firm opinion of our sea men that this new self-lighting life buoy will be the means of saving many lives from drowning.
Bits from Books. A MATTER FOR ARGUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
Bits from Books. ?w ? A MATTER FOR ARGUMENT. A most lovable trait of Cecil Rhodes was a certain direct and al most childlike simplicity. A little incident recorded by -a friend, and told by Sir Lewis Mitchell in 'The Life of the Right Hon. Cecil J. Rhodes' gives us more of the real Rhodes than many chapters of for mal biography : I well remember upon one occas ion our guest for the evening was Father Barthelemy, of the Jesuit Mission in Buluwayo, a man who had endeared himself to everyone in the column by his self-sacrifice and devotion, always ready to lend a hand, as brave as a lion, and about the best person I ever met. After dinner the conversation turned upon religion, and Rhodes astonished our Jesuit friend by des cribinef to him in detail the course of probation he had been obliged to un dergo for seventeen years before he could be thought worthy to be rais ed to the dignity of a 'Father.' 'How is it, Mr. Rhodes,' at last said Father Barthelemy, 'that you know so much about u...
A HANDY FIRE ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
A HANDY FIRE ESCAPE. A new fire escape has recently been invented which, when not in use, folds up into a sort of tube. When required for use it may be opened from any floor by anyone, even a child, putting an arm out of the window, when it immediately opens out into a ladder with safety guard. At tho same time a light at the top of the ladder is operated so as to enable persons to see their way, and alarm bells are rung in the house and at the fire station. An auxil iary ladder, reaching from the first floor to the ground, unfolds in a second by simply pulling a handle. This ladder is kept folded out of reach when not in action, so that there is no fear of the escape being made use of by unauthorised per sons from outside, as may easily happen with outside staircases.
FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
FOR FARMERS. Feeding from a common nosebag a horse must toss his head to get all the grain. This causes considerable waste, as some of the grain is thrown out. A new invention is- intended to adjust the bag to the noso of the horse as the grain is eaten away. It consists of brass tubes, one of which telescopes in the other. An open coil spring is placed in such a way as to draw the tubes together. One of these devices is placed in the strap of the nosebag on each side of the horse's head. The tension of the springs is adjusted so as to keep the level of the grain against the horse's mouth at all times.
SCOPE FOR INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
SCOPE FOR INVENTION. French sardine fishers use, as bait, the roes and other waste products of tho Norwegian cod fisheries. The bait is expensive and its price is con tinually rising, owing to the increas ed demand. An artificial bait, which is much cheaper, has recently been employed, But with only partial suc cess, as it sinks too quickly, and often lures the sardines downward, instead of drawing them up into the nets. Attempts are now being made to remedy this defect. The success of these attempts would bring joy to the fisherman, but not to the dealers in Norwegian bait, who enjoy a very lucrative monopoly. The question is one of burning interest, and has nearly led to open war between fish ermen and bait dealers on the French coasts.
MAKING WATCH BALANCE WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
MAKING WATCH BALANCE WHEELS. As the balance wheels of watches, if made of one metal, would expand and contract with changes- of tem perature, and thus run slower or faster according to the degrees of heat, they must be made of different kinds of metals, having different de grees of expansion with the same in crease of temperature. In this man ner the effect of changes of tempera ture on the running of a watch is almost entirely eliminated. To de termine the expansibility of the me tals employed an instrument called a dilatomoter is used, in which a sys tem of delicate levers or a chain of gear wheels magnifies the motion of a pointer over a scale hundreds of times. The change in the length '-f a piece of steel caused by a single de gree of rise or fall of temperature is clearly measured by it.
EAR PROTECTION FOR GUNNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
EAR PROTECTION FOR ' GUNNERS. The ears of gunners are often seri ously injured by the detonation of great guns, the tympanum of the ear being frequently ruptured.' Mariotti has invented a simple device which prevents these injurious effects, with out diminishing the sharpness of hearing. The protector consists of a solid mass of glass of such form as to fit accurately the external ear, in to which it is inserted. It is tra versed horizontally by a perforation, the inner end of which almost touch es the tympanum. The outer end of this horizontal passage does not qifite reach the outer end of ihe mass of glass, but connects 'with a vertical passage, which commu«icates- freely with the atmosphere above and be low. The violent disturbance of the air caused by the artillery discharge produces an aspiration, in the .hori zontal passage, and consequently a rarefaction of the small mass of air confined between the tympanum and the glass protector. In consequence of this rarefaction, says th...
LIGHTNING FALLACIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
LIGHTNING FALLACIES. A popular fallacy is that small steel objects, such as scissors or knives, will 'attract lightning.' Now, the destructive flashes which need be feared range anywhere from two hundred feet to a mile in length, and are commonly of fifty thousand horse-power, while their crctfS sec tions are like those of iron bars heat ed to whiteness. It is, therefore, silly to suppose that such an insig nificant thing as a pair of scissors would attract sucli a force out of its path, and it is equally silly to be lieve that a plate of glass or a few inches of feather bedding would bar its progress once it started toward you. A further superstition is that 'lightning sours milk.' It is true that milk will often quickly decom pose when a thunderstorm is brew ing; but it is the closeness of the atmospnere wmen does tne miscmer, never the lightning, and the milk will turn on an equally sultry day when there was not a thunderstorm within a hundred miles. Then, too, there is the wise ...
TO BE HAPPY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
TO BE HAPPY. Never compare yourselves' with others of the same age, or think you must appear as old as they are because they have passed the same number of years.,. Love is a great healer of all .fife's ills, the great strengthener and beautifier. If you would drink of the fountain of per petual youth, fill your life with it. Pure air both indoors and out is absolutely essential to health and longevity. Cultivate the spirit of contentment; all discontent and dis satisfaction bring age fun ows pre maturely to the face. Keep your mind young and fresh, vigorous thinking, and your heart sound by cultivating a cheerful, optimistic disposition.
MATTERS & FEMININE. GOOD THINGS TO LEARN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
^MATTERS FEMININE.^* GOOD THINGS TO LEARN. Learn to laugh. A good laugh is better than medicine. Learn how to tell a story. A well-told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick room. Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself. The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows. Learn to stop croaking. If you cannot see any good in this world,, keep the bad to yourself. Learn to hide your aches and pains under a pleasant smile. No one cares whether you have the earache, headache, or rheumatism. Learn to greet your friends with a smile. They carry too many frowns in their own hearts to be bothered with any of yours.
FIRST WEEKS AT SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
FIRST WEEKS AT SCHOOL. The first weeks away at school are difficult. Even where there is no home-sickness to contend with, so much depends upon first impres sions. A girl's entire school life — yes, after life — may hinge on the way she acts at first. Here are a few dont's that may help : — Don t boast, pose as exclusive, or talk braggingly of your home friends. Don't rush into friendship; the most desirable girls are rarely the most approachable. Don't be con fidential on silorf acquaintance. You will live to regret it, especially if you discuss teachers or other girls'. Don't be domineering, self-assertive, or a know-it-all as a stranger. Don't be stand-offish. Willingness to meet friends half-way Is a big asset towards popularity.
The Heart of Maureen. (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) PUBLISHED BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT. CHAPTER VIII—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
CDe Bean of tomm. ; (All Rights Risbrvbd.) By JOHN STRANGE WINTER, Author of 'Bootle's Baby,' 'A Blaze oY Glory.' 'Houpilia,' 'The Price of a Wife,' 'Love and Twenty,' 'Lady Jennifer .' Published -By Special Arrangement. ^CHAPTER VIII— (Continued) At last Lorrimcr went away, hav ing about him, it must be confessed, a guilty sort of feeling that he had neglected the invalid shamefully. He reached the station, walked down the bit of semi-country road, past the doctor's house, and turned it at the gate of Ardeen. The first thing that struck him was that there was a light in the diniiig-room. The - circumstance struck him as a fact, but he did not attempt to analyse it. There was a light in the din ing-room — just that, no more. He opened the door with his latchkey, saw the blaze of light coming out from the half-open dining-room door, slipped off his coat, put his ; hat on the rack and his stick in the umbrella-stand, then pushed the door eipen. In his own armchair by the fire sat his ...
Honsehold Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
Household Hints. An enamelled saucepan that is burnt can be cleaned by rubbing with damp salt. Then well rinse it and dry. New tin dishes are apt to give a disagreeable taste to everything placed in them unless water and ammonia are first boiled in them.' When boiling rice try adding a little lemon juice to the water. This gives' the rice a nice white appear ance and keeps the grains well sep arated. Lemon juice will remove stains from the hands. Manicures use ac ids, but the lemon is quite as good, and it js not poisonous, which the acids are. The upper leather of old boots makes capital iron-holders with a covering of serge or any other dress material. The leather keeps all the heat from the hand. Give children their tea early so that they may have a1 good hour's play before going to bed. This play will induce a healthy tiredness,- and sleep will soon follow. A liberal supply of carbonate of soda placed around the 'kitchen hearth and any other favourite haunt of black beetles will...
