Motor Car Engine Bench Test [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914

Motor Oar Engine Denebc Test -0o A remarkable bench test of a motor car engine was recently car ried oiit under the auspides of the Automobile club of America. A four-cylinder engine (4in bore x 6in stroke) of the Silent Knight tpye, was run for 337 consecutive hours without a stop, at a speed of over 1100 revolutions a minute. During the whole test the engine developed 38 h.p., aind in the last hour's run developed 53 h.p,, at 1678 revolutions. Upon dismant ling the engine at the end of its 14 days' continuous run, there was not the slightest shake or wear in the bearings, and the working parts were practically in the same condition as when the test was started. This is the greatest bench test any automobile engine has yet been put to.

TYRENDARRA. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914

'TYIIENDuItkII. From Our Own Correspondent. We have had some splendid rain here during the past week, which was very much needed. Swamps and water holes went dry this year, a state of things that had not occurred during the past 30 years. Mr M. Crowe had a very narrow escape from what might have proved a fatal accident. With another man, he was engaged cut ting a post at a bush fire, when his companion's axe glanced and struck him on the head, leaving a nasty gash 2Y2 inches long and about a quarter of an inch deep. Mr H. Wright has suffered a big 1ess with his bullocks, seven or eight head having died through contracting a disease called the rickets. Mr Wright has other cattle suffering from the same com plaint. Our local river is at present teeming with bream, and anglers on the noted . Fitzrov river are having a merry time with the fish. Mr Keats' camp -on the river has been well patronised this year. A large party from Port Fairy are there at present, and with the rod and gun, a...

THE LEPROSY OF SIN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 March 1914

A. ' bd. Tr ' LEPROSY OF SIN. BY PASTOR RUSSELL. Text: "Were there not ten cleansed, lbt where are the nine? Only one bath r+ turned to give glory to God" (Luke xvii, 17, 18). Leprosy has long been regarded- as in cmralble, anid may therefore be used as an illustration of sin,. which is also incur curable. As only the \iaster's word could heal the lepers, so tnothing short of a Divine remedy can cure sin. In olden times lepers were re guired to separate themselves from others. and lheu approached to cry, "Unclean!" So sm ners. by Divine decree are isolated from the pure, the holy. Humanity constitutes 'but a small pro ponrtion of God's great family, amongst whom are angels, cherubim, seraphim &c., who always 'have fellowahip with God and with each other. 3But while the Scriptures declare that mankind are sinners by here dity, yet all do not appreciate their condi tion, nor cry aloud, Unclean! There are various degrees of uncleanness. Our Lord illustrates this fact in the Par...

Mr Hockley inquired what was the cost of manufacturing the butter The secretary said it was im possible to say without going into figures. His calculation, how ever, showed that it was a shade over lid per lb. Mr Hockley asked why the wages were so high notwithstand ing that a reduced amount of milk and cream was dealt with.

THE CHINESE GARDEN ER. `Australia has decreed that the Chinese market gardener is to die out. Vi ho, then, . will take .his place?"' This question is aisked by the Sydey '"Daily Telegraph" which prdceeds to discuss the respective merits of the whiter men and the Chinese in this capacity.
