LOST IN A TREE SICKLE HIDDEN FOR FIFTY YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
LOST IN A TREE ? ^ SICKLE HIDDEN FOE FIFTY YEARS. A remarkable find was recently made in the sawmills of the London, Mid laud and Scottish Railway at Wolver ton. This was a complete sickle em bedded in the heart ox a tree.* The tree iu question was an elm, which grew in Bedfordshire, and was i about ninety years old. It was being sawn up into planks when tlie discov ery was made, and as there were more t'-au seventy rings outside the sickle, and a tree puts on an extra ring every year, the implement must have been left sticking in the tree by a wood manor fann servant in the early fif ties. In tlie latter part of last year work- . moil discovered a horseshoe in flic heart of an oak in the timber yard of ?lie same railway's wagon works at Derby. |

IN COLD STORAGE. — — ? ? THE SECRET OF SUCCESS LIES IN GETTING JUST THE RIGHT DEGREE OF FROST. Everyone knows that half the na tion's food is kept in cold storage. Meat, butter, eggs, and all sorts of provisions are sent from the ends of the earth in the refrigerator chambers of great cargo steamers. Cn the other hand, there are but few who have any idea what a tick lish business it is, and how very carefully the temperature must be regulated for different classes of gooes. Ta\e butter, for example. At one time a temperature of 32 degrees — that, is just freezing point — was con sidered exactly right for butter. Years ago, some tons of butter were stored in a refrigerating chamber at this temperature ; then one day the man in charge made some blunder, aad down went the temperature, 20 degrees lower than usual, with the r silt that the butter »was frozen eolid as a rock. C f course, there was a fearful row, anl the unfortunate* blunderer was going to get the sack, when it occur red t...
GOLDEN GIRDLE FOR EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
GOLDEN GIRDLE FOR EARTH, If gold were as common as copper , tin. or even silver, it would be of great use commercially, f of it pos sesses amazing properties in compari son v ith other metals. It is extraordinarily ductile. Iron cannot. be drawn into / very thin wire be ause, vhen a certain smallness is reached, it is so fragile that it-is un wor.i&We. Copper wire can be made very little thicker than a human hair but gold surpasses this easily. A single grain cf gold can be drawn in to a wire 500ft. in length ; an ounce would make I3rty-eight miles, whilst 500pz. would be sufficient to make a foe giidle for the earth ! Gold can be beaten out into sheets of wpnderful thipness. One grain will ma.' e a sheet of gold leaf measuring Tin. by 8in., with a thickness of about? l-350,CC0th of an inch. A pile cf a million of these sheets would be no higher than an ordinary tea cup. The latest wonder of gold working was achieved a few months ago, when f gold sheets were made so thin tha...
