FRICTION AVOIDED [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

FRICTION AVOIDED SA very ingenious method of over. coming tile friction of intermeshing gears has recently been devised. The gear teeth are eleotromagnetically held uI engagement, without actually con tacting. The teeth of the driving gear are magndetised by means of suitable coils, while tho teeth of the driven gear serve in pairs as armatures for the magnetised teeth. Of course such an arrangement would hardly be suit able for show, heavy work, because the cost of oirrent would be greater tihanm that of lubricating oil and the loss due to friction, but for light, high-speed work the electro-magnetic engagement would undoubtedly prove very advan tuoeous.

MOTOR CAR MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

MOTOR CAR MAXIMS. The fool rejoioeth in hiB speed; but the wise moan looketh well to his gong. He that is void of wisdom critioises his ineighlbour's vehicle; but a mlan of un derstanlding holdoth his peace. He that trusteih his aut?mobile to tihe care of a hired man shall come quickly to grief; but hle that careth for it himself shall flourish like a branch. It is bletter to ride in a tramoar than with a nerIvous womlan on a brass-trimmed motor-car. A wise man feareth and departeth from crowded streets; but the fool gets in the middle of the crush anid is confident. A 'ighteous man re gardeth thie life of his carriage; but the tender mercies of the scoroher are few and far between. A smooth road maketh a cheerful countenance; but by a rough one are the repairers made glad. When scorching cormeth then coomth shamie; but with the oareful rider is wisdom.

THE OBSCURE MRS. TOWNSEND [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

THE OBSCURE MRS. TOWNSEND lt is a startling, soul-wrenching thing to discosver that one is a nonentity. A womnlan may have quite clearly recog nised the fact that she is not brilliant and have accepted it as her lot and destiny to always make one of the choru?; yet such is the majesty of life, of which she is a pulse, that it will be impossiblo for her, under normal condi tiolns, to ever regard herself as a ne gligible atom of the universe. To find that others do so has the effect of a spiritual earthquake. It shakes the foundations which she has always taken for granted. Mrs. Townsend was truly pmodest, but she had never realised that she was ,rrapped in obscurity, as in a cloak of invisibility, until she went to the Bien nial Meeting of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, held at Waterbury, and she had not really admitted the situation to hcrself until that break fast incident on the morning of the fourth day.. There were two other women wear ing Federationl badges at another...

OUR DEBT TO THE MOSLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

OUR DEBT TO THE MOSLEMS. Startling as it may seemn, tlhe intel lectual salvation of Modern Europ0 from the benumbing influence of the Middle Ages was in a large measure due to the Arabs. As early as the days of Harun-al-Raschid, who was a contemporary of Charlemagne, efforts ars made by that Caliph to make science and literature the permanent denizens of his empire. These efforts were still further carried under the brilliant rule of his son and succssor, Al Mamun, whose caliphate has jlustly been called the Augustan Age of Islan. Leanrned men were invited from manly different countries and remunerated for their labours with princely muniti cence; and the works of the be.t Greek, Syrian, Persian, and Indian writers were translated into Arabio and spread over the entire Mahometdan world. In Spain, the University of Cordova rivalled the literary fame of Baghdad, and Mahomedan writers ap pneared everywiere as the preservers and dlistributolrs of knowledge. In the long night of Mediaeva...

A USELESS INSTRUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

A USELESS INSTRUMENT. At a West country auction of house hold goods an active and successful bidder was a farmer. His purehases were piled high in one corner of the room, and he was still eager when a barometer was offered. There was no bidding from any quarter, and the auc tioneer, holding it out to the farmer said: "Here, give me a half-a-crown for it and tnake it " "Not me!" said the farmer, backing away.• ?* ? "Why, that's dirt cheap l" exclaimed the nuctioneer. Don't you y a a barometer ?" "No1" was the decided reply. '" had one a year or two ago, :nd it never gave me the right time.

SHARE YOUR ROSES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

SHARE YOUR ROSES. 2. tourist brings this pleasant story about Andrew Carnegie from Scotland: At Skibo Castle Mr. Carnegie had a beautiful rose garden. There were thfusands of red and white and yellow roses always blooming there, and the villagers were free to saunter in the garden paths to their heart's content. One day the head gardener waited upon Blr. Carnegie. "Sir, I wish to lodge a complaint," he ventured. "WeUl?" and the master waited. "Well, sir, I wish to inform you that the village folks are plucking the roses in your rose garden. They are de nuding your rose trees, sir." . "Ah," and there was a note of deep satisfaction in Mr. Carnegie's voice, "so my people are fond of flowers, are they, Donald? Then you must plant more 1"

NATURAL SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

NATURAL SOAP. It Is said that in a mountaiil near Eko, Nevada, there is an ineaniustble supply of pure soap. One may enter the mule with a butcher's knife and cut as largo a piec as he wisfl:s. It is beautifully mottled, and on being ex posed to the air hardens omowimat. Thie mountain of clay is of fine- tx ture, end it contains boracic ari, soda and borate of lime. Its colour is given it by the iron and other materials. In its mineral state-it is rather stromig in alkali, and removes ink and other stains rbadily. At one time it was used on the Pullman cars, but when its peculiar origin beoame generally known passengers appropriated it so extensively for souvenirs that the com poany was forced to go back to the common soap of commerce.

MEAT AND BUTTER IN SAN FRANCISCO. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

MEAT AND BUTTER IN SAN FRANCISCO. The San Francisco-correspondent of lhe Melbourne "Age" thus describes thle condition of the San Franoisco market at the ond of January, when the Waimato-e arrived from Sydney and o lington with 1000 tons of frozen produce and 168 000 Iba. of butter: The tsctics.adosted by the San Fran cisco meat retailers are now, and have been for several months, to sell the imeat as:American meat, and obtain the. prevailiig prices, thereby reaping :icl harvest of prot. They flatly denied they were'handling Australian meat, and refused to bill it as such, although the size and quality of the imported article was patent to all pur chasers. The iprime apipearance of the foreign commodity proved beyond a doubt that consumers were getting the Australian product, but the re tailers maintained that it was Ameri can meat only which they purveyed, and accordingly demanded the local higher prices. One unbiassed official aptly remarked--"If retailers-say uhat it is Au~tralia...

MR. WILLIAM DONALDSON [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

MR. W?ILLIAM DONALDSON There are few men better known in the North-eastern and Goulburn Valley districts than Mr William Donaldson, who was born at Goul h?urn, N.S.W., in 1844. In 1881 his parentsdecided to make a move, and selected Melbourne as their residence; but their stay was of short duration,for within a month they had moved to Bendigo, re maining in the golden city for about twaelve months. The next move was to Oakleigh, returning to Bendigo in 1856. From Bendigo the family proceeded to Kilmore, where land was secured at Meran ding. it was here that the youth William was initiated into the knowledge of farming and dairying. The subject of this personal sketch remained in the Kilmore district for a period of eleven. years, when he felt sufficient 'confidence in his own ability to launch out and follow the dictates of a resolute mnind. In 1867 he proceeded to Avenel. which was a vast sheep run, owned or leased from the Crown by Mr Lloyd Jones. Young William selected 275 acres ...

AMERICAN SHEEP BREEDS. The "American Sheep Breeder and Wool Grower," the organ of the sheep breeders in the United States; gives an intoresting account of the sheep shown at the recent Intoernational Live Stock Exposition at Chicago.

Football. Opening of the Season. Seymour v. Avenel. S (By LoNG SHOT.) The Opening matches of the Wa ranga-N.E. Association were played on Wednesday' under most favor-. .able auspices. The weather was perfect and the grounds in splendid order. Perhaps the most impor tant match was, played at Avenel, where Seymour took the field against the local eighteen. There was a large attendance of support ers of both clubs present, and, fpr an opening match,they were treated to a fairly good display of football. Seymour had slightly the best of the play, and were generally more accurate and skilful than their op ponents. Avenel opened agressively. They gradually forced the ball into posi- i tion, and from a scriminage in front, B. Tlonkin smartly snapped their first goal. Prince, C. Doyle and.Gale, who were playing well in the ruck, carried the ball to the otherend, where Halsall defended I gamely, and returned the play to centre. Prince aigain forwarded, and after a smart.. tussel Woods found ...

FORESTRY AND ITS RELATION TO AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

FORESTRY AND ITS RELATION . TO AGRICULTURE. (By H. Mackay, Conservator of For ests, in "Journal of Agricul- . turs.") Forestry means the preservation and maintenanoa of the naturll tree-growth of a country by wise use. It conicerns itself, indeed, with the restocking or roplenishment of naked and denuded areas, of lands recklessly stripped lby the hand of man or by the devastation of fire: hence it includes the sowing and planting of trees to repair the ravages committed by these agencies. Agrioulturo, on the other hanii is tile utilisation and cultivation of tse soil in order that it may yield the great est d versity of products for. the ser vice of man and beast. The two ,tronces are closely related to eachl other, and forests properly controlled and wisely used always have a bencfi clal influenoe on agriculture. It is when man goes against in'atural laws,; and strips the cover of mountain and hill, that he and his fellows suffer most loss in the long run. If you denude the mounta...
