YARRAM TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. A.N.A. SUGGESTIONS. At last Tuesday night's meeting of the local branch of tlio A.N.A. tho syllabus item for the evening was a discussion on " How best to improve tho town of Ynrram," but judging by tho attendance of tho townspeople present, they do not seem to care whe ther the town is improved or not. Mr. G. F. Sauer, vice-president of the branch, was in tho chair, and culled on Mr. E. L. Grano to open the discussion. Mr. Ui,ino had evidently come pro prepared. Ho began on tho subject of drainage, and the following are somo of his suggestions:—The 111:1111 drains should have sludgo channels of planks and much wider. The street crossings should have been asphalted and rounded 011 top, as had been successfully done in other coun try towns. No proper prorision had been made for lighting tho side streets. Poles had been erected in tho middle of the road and lights appended to one side of the poie only, the consequence was that the lights only shone around ono...

A Tourists' Resort. FOREST SCENERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 15 May 1914

A Tourists' Resort. VOUliST SCENERY. The reccnt improvement which has been effected by the Forestry Depart ment in clearing the undergrowth along the main road from Toora to Gunyah through the timber reserve, writes a traveller, has opened up that portion of the road, and the residents of Gun yah feel grateful for these small mer cies. Some very fine scenery is to be seen while driving through the Gunyah reserve, and the fern glens make one pause with admiration and admit how perfect Nature is in her virgin state. Huge forn trees up to twenty-live feet in height., mixed with beech trees, sassafras, acacias, and various kinds of (lowering shrubs and creepers, with | moss growing on the trunks of huge mountain asli trees, make the view a perfect picture. One fenls surprised ' that the Gunyah Progress Association has not made it their business to stock the Agnes, 1'Vanklin and Jlorwoll rivers with trout. These rivers take their head waters from the Gunyah reserve, and once the streams ...

UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 15 May 1914

UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. A marine engineer tells of an un pleasant piece of work he once had to do during tlie trial trip of a magnifi cent boat that a large firm of contrac tors had turned out for ono of the big ocean-going steamship companies. The engines were to run at so many knots an hour, and the big steamer left her moorings and put out to sea for her trial cruise that was to de cide whether she would be accepted by the steamship company. He writes:—After we had been out to sea but a ".ittle time, the chief engin eer discovered that one of the piston rods had a slight defect in it—a thing not infrequent in a large mass of ma chinery—and that in passing to and fro the unwonted friction caused by this defect would in the course of a very little time make the piston and all around it red hot. The conse quence of this would 'be very serious, •md would mean a breakdown in the machinery. To allow it to'occur would be madness: to stop toe machinery to remedy the defect v.'ou.il ...

The Roads Board. AN INDEPENDENT BODY. REPLY TO CRITICISMS. THE SALE ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 15 May 1914

The Roads Board. AN INDEPENDENT 110DY. REPLY TO CrUTICr.SM.S, THE SALE HO AD. At tht; clo-ic of yesterday's meeting of the Albcrton shire council Cr. Me 0:ilIi:ird said ho had noticed criticisms in the local Press retlecting on the IIoitls Board. It was inferred tlmt tlie Board was not an independent body, and was inlluenced by the shire councils. Tliis was not true. The Board only conferred with shire coun cils to as far as possible get nil the in formation reijuired. J lo was prompted to make these remarks because it looked as if Mr Caulder could be iti tluenced by the shire councils. Cr. Fahey asked councillors to put on their considering caps, as to how they would pay the piper. If they knew what they had to meet in regard to roads taken over it would givo coun cillors more freedom. At last meeting the Sale road question was moved. There was no serious objection to that proposal provided the north riding took the responsibility. So it was with roads in the other ridings.

PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 15 May 1914

PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. One of the greatest prejudices with which electric lighting lvas had to contend is the assertion that It is in jurious to the eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of the tungsten lamp are harmful. The mere sound of the word "ultra-violet" seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to some people, who, perhaps, conjure up visions of mysterious mal adies analogous to those which at tacked the early experimenters with the X-rays. All this alarm is, fortun ately, unfounded, for the emission of ultra-violet rays by some of the latest types of metal filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a source of illumination. The pow erful new lamps, however, can be in jurious to the eyesight, in the same way as any other illuminant, by caus ing strain owing to glare. More than ever nowadays the science and art of illumination require to be carefully observed. In the days of the candle and the early gas burners the strain on the o...

FOOLS AND THEIR MONEY. Fortune and Folly. A Russian unexpectedly inherited £62,500. Ho began to live In the most expensive manner in St. Peters burg, keeping a yacht and racehorses. Ho gave the finest entertainments to his Iriends, in the course of which mirrors in the restaurants were fre quently broken by champagne bottles and glasses being thrown about, but he invariably paid the bill cheerfully. Heceutly, discov ring that he had come to the end of his money, he in v'ted all his friends to a fete on an island, whither they were taken in his yacht. They spent the day in revelry, but when the last visitor had been landed on his way home, the owner of the yacht sank her, and the next day applied to the municipality of St. Petersburg for a job as cross ing sweeper at 15/- a week, and got it.
