SNARING SHARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929
SNARING SHARKS. — w Shark-fishing is, more or less, the same all over the world, but the method employed . by the natives of Aitutaki, an island in the South Pa cific, stands out as unique, even for the intrepid natives of the South Seas, whose reputation for daring in water is almost Droverfcial. The island is celebrated for this sport all over Australia, and -it is now becoming so popular with tour ists that many natives derive quite a comfortable, though deserving in come from it.- - There are many holes and caves under the coral rocks in' the lagoon, which is very shallow for the most part, and heats quickly under the fierce rays of the tropical sun. If the day happens to be very calm, there is not a ripple to break the force of the rays, and by midday the lagoon is unbearably warm. Mr. Shark now begins to feel ex tremely uncomfortable, and either makes for the open sea beyond, or lodges himself in one of the many coral caves, with which the lagoon abounds. Knowing this, the Ait...

HURRICANES TO ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929
HURRICANES TO ORDER. ♦ — Have you ever wondered how the varieties of weather— rain, fog, and wind — that one sees on the -cinema screen are produced ? If artistes and photographers waited for real wea ther such as they required to occur, a lot of valuable time would be wast ed. The simplest solution is to make your own weather, so that you can turn on just the type you want. Three appliances . are used. The first is the rain-maker, which looks like a lightly-made fire-engine. It is provided with a lattice-work towei on the top of which stands an opera tor who, by opening or closing taps, can produce either fine or heavy rain. The rain is directed towards the air current made by the wind ma chine, and by varying the strength of the wind, the rain. can be made to fall gently or in wild driving squalls. The wind-maker Is nothing more than an engine with a large propel ler mounted on a motor-lorry. By regulating the speed you can have a gentle breeze that will just ruffle the heroine's ...

AVIATION LONG DISTANCE FLIGHTS A NEW BRITISH MACHINE. London, January 23. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929
AVIATION LONG DISTANCE FLIGHTS A NEW BRITISH MACHINE, liondon, January '23. Experts in aviation to-day viewed ai the Cranwell aerodrome an aeroplane which has been designed to beat the long distance feats of any aircraft yet built, whether heavier or lighter than air.. It is a new Fairey monoplane built for the Air Ministry. This machine will probably be taken to. Capetown very shortly to fill up with a full load of fuel and will attempt a non-stop night to the north of Scotland. Even if the 'plane only reaches the south coast of England it will easily have beaten the world's long-distance re cord, at present held by Italy with a flight from Some to South America. It is the first monoplane ever built by the Fairey Company and bears a strong resemblance to the Fairey 3F biplanes, high speed bombers, over a hundred of which arc now in use by the Royal Air Force. The engine is a special Napier developed from the Na pier Lion as osed in Schneider Cup racing machines. The object aimed, a...
N.S.W. COAL TRADE EFFORTS TO SOLVE DISPUTE WAITING FOR PREMIER'S MOVE. Sydney, January 23. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929
N.S.W. COAL TRADE EFFORTS TO SOLVE DIS PUTE WAITING rOE PREMIER'S MOVE. Sydney, January 23. Realising that if the existing state of affairs continues many coal mines now working will be obliged to close down or to work on reduced scales, the colliery proprietors are trying to formulate. a scheme for the betterment of conditions. In view of Premier Bavin's state ment that he will go further into the position of the industry, the 'officials of the Miners' Federation are now marking time in anticipation of a move by the Premier or the owners. A general stoppage at the collieries is feared, for there is a possibility that the coal owners will- now decide on the reduction of wages. A strike would mean that many collieries would at once cease operations, while a con tinuation, of the dispute would lead to the gradual tie-up of other interstate vessels.
FARM TRACTORS USE AND MANAGEMENT SOME COMMON MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 25 January 1929
FARM TRACTORS USE AND MANAGEMENT 80ME COMMON MISTAKES. There are (says the Melbourne 'Age') already 1000 tractors in the Winunera. In another five years ther.? ' maj- be 1500. But with the everex tending use of the various forms of motor traction, there does not appear to be a corresponding increase in the : knowledge of the farming community ' of the basic principles which govern the smooth working of their motor- | driven machines. Most tractors are ! fitted with the internal expanding or external expanding type of brake. Each is easy to adjust, and should be set in such a way that there is no friction when the brake is not being used. Yet it should grip well when it is applied. From time to time it in ay be necessary to reline the shoes, but thifc is quite a simple, task, and any good amateur can manage it. The best lining to employ is that made of asbestos and brass wire woven toge ther, and this can be obtained from any motor store or garage. Holes should be drilled in the fabr...
