COAL CUTTING MACHINE [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 October 1914

COAL CUTTING MACHINE Revolutionary changes in coal-mining methods arc promised upon the general introduction of a coal-mining machine developed by Mr. H. A. Kulin, a Pitts burg mining and mechanical ongiuoer, who has spent moro than ten years in perfecting the machine. The device, constructed of structural Bteel, can at tack the coal seam in any position, moving up or down or in any direction in which the seam loads. It takes out more than 90 per cent, of the coal in tho ground, whereas the best practices of to-day seldom recover more than 70 per cent, of the coal. It is statod that the machine has demonstrated that it can cut the cost of mining coal by half. It is said that ten of thom can produce over J000 tons of coal a day. Only two men are needed to guide the mechanism of each machine, which takes the coal from tho scam, cuts it. pals it on a conveyor, and loads it in a pit car without a human hand toilet ing it. Electricity or compressed air can be used, and so little power is...

VALUE OF COMMON SALT [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 October 1914

VALUE OF COMMON SALT besides being such nil essential part of culinary art, salt lias man.v other uses perhaps not generally "known. Salt cleu.nso, the palate and furred tongue, and a gargle of salt and water is often efficacious. A pinch of salt 011 tho tongue, followed ten minutes after by a drink of cold water, often cures a sick headache. Salt hardens tho gums, makes the teeth white, and sweetens the breath. Added to the water in which cut-flowers stand, it keeps them fresh. Salted water and alcohol in solution should be used for rubbing weak ankles. Salt used dry in the samo manner as snuff will do much to relievo colds, hay fever, otc., et<'., and, if used for bathing tired eyes, it will be found very refreshing. Salt and water will stop hemorrhage from the extraction of teeth.

IN LESS THAN NO TIME. The market house clock web stopped for repairs, and the wholesale fish dealers thought to have a lark out or "Silly Geordie," who was standing near. Calling him to them, - they challenged him to run round the mar ket buildings in one minute. The challenge was accepted. Geordio toed the line, and they pointed the time to him, just three minutes past, and on the word being given ho set otf.

Thirty years afterward, at Lawton, in Oklahama, Clark was waiting at the hotel for a committee that was to escort him to a meeting. A tall man, with a rod heard and a plug hat, came up to him and put forth his hand. "You don't know me, Mr. Speaker!' he said triumphantly. Clark looked up from his cha>", unt he did not get up. "It's a mean advantage," he said, "after thirty years, to make me tell you right away which one of the three •Mnsely boys you aro." The man was astonished—so mfch so that he took off his hat. "You're Bill," said the Speaker. "H'uv did you know?" asked Bill. "By the motion you made when you took off your hat. You were tlia one who thought he'd be an orator." "That's right." said Bill.
