Australian and Imported Articles. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914
Australian and Imported Articles. At the Prahran Council meeting on Monday evening last, Cr. Naylor presented a statement showing the respective values of Australian manu lactured and imported material in cluded in the Boari of Works con tracts for the year 1913. For Australian material the amount expended was £188,528 6s 4d, and for the imported £10,932 18s 6d. Per centage of Australian manufac tured material, 94k- per cent. If the amount of imported cement be de ducted it would give a per centage in favor of Australian goods of 97.6 per cent. If imported cement, iron mongery and oils be deducted, it would give a percentage of 98.8 per cent. in favor of Australian goods. It would thus be seea (said Cr Naylor) how unfounded were state ments that the Board of Works gave preference to imported as against local articles.

PINS AND NEEDLES SOON TURN TO DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914
PINS AND. NEEDLES SOON TURY TO -DUST. What becomes of the millions and nmillions of pins- that are -turned, ou' anifually by the factories? They "get lost.'! Yes,- but if they :merely: "got 'lost"- our.flooors and streets would. be littered with them. They: not only "get lost" but. they vahnish by rusting away to dust. Dr. Xavier, a Paris scientist, ha.s been keeping observation on indivi dual specimens. He finds that an ordinary hairpin took only I.' days to-blow "away in dust. A steel pen -nib lasted just under fifteen months. A common pin took eighteen months while- a polished steel needle took 2, years to disappear.
EXTRAORDINARY FATALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914

Al though in this case the heart was healthy, he thought heart failure fol lowed sudden exertion. The jury ac cepted this view. Fish scales, if they are small and bright, are worth about four shil lings a pound in France. They are made" into pearls, buttons, and all kinds of jewellery for the Indies and Chint.
