CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 7 May 1914
CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. The ability to seize an opportunity Is a valuable, nay indispensable, busl ness as-et as the following incidents go a long way to prove. An aeronaut and his son met with an accident near Rouen some years ago; through the car of their balloon having broken away, father and son were thrown downwards, but the son had been caught when falling in a hook which pierced his coant. He was carried this way for some miles, ultimately coming to the ground In safety. His coat was pur. chased by the makers and hung in their show windows, with a full de scription of how it saved the wear er's life. And as a fitting reward for tlielr enterprise their sales actually doubled. A Welsh miller lost a sovereign in a bin of flour, and after spending ninny unavailing ,hours In search of it told a friend of his misfortune. "Perhaps it will turn up in one of the sacks," suggested the friend, whereupon tile miller was seized with a brilliant idea. ile advertised in the local papers, offer...
A WOOD THAT NEVER ROTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 7 May 1914
A WOOD THAT NEVER RO'TS. Engineers have often to deplore the rotting of railway sleepers, of piles, -and of wood used to support galler ies, In the building of ships, etc. En glneers, chemists, physicists, blolo gists, doctors, who, for the construc tion of diverse apparatus may require a wood possessing a maximum resist once to the causes of destruction, par ticularly humidity, are Interested in this important question of the un putrescibility of wood. The ideal would be to llnd a wood of a charac ter susceptible of resisting putrefac tion naturally. Now it appears from recent researches that the wood of the mangrove tree may be considered as absolutely unputresclble. Numer ous sample of mangrove wood (Rhizo. phora racenlosa) sent from French Guinea were, in 1909, placed at Col longes (Cote d'Or) in a soaking pit in the depot of sleepers of the Paris Lyons-Mlediterranean Railway Com pany. The samples were surrounded with all the elements susceptible of producing the decomposition a...
Tit for Tat. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 7 May 1914
Tit for- Tat. A well-known comedian has nit in exhnustible stock of good stories. One of the best concerns a visit to a Scot tish town. The prices had been put up a little, and it man explained to a friend that he had gone to the theatre with his wife, Intending to go to the pit, and had found that oighteenponce was being charged instead of a shll lng. "'Of course you didn't go in?" re marked the friend. "Oh, yes, I went in, but I paid them out for their greed. I sent my wife home, so they lost sixpence by it." After a few years of matrimony a man's originality appears to be all concentrated on the thought of some ling noew to have for dinner. No mann ever achieved great success unless he was supplemented by the right kind of subordinate.
