HOMELY FARE TOMATOES IN ABUNDANCE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
HOMELY FARE By "HOUSEWIFE." TOMATOES IN ABUNDANCE Those fortunate people who have a, lew prolific plants in their gardens; now realise that tomatoes are at their j best, the Victorian sorts, as the market; reports say, coming forward freely. To my mind, the Victorian tomato is. the best of its species with which we in this country are acquainted. Travellers tell marvellous stories of "the excellence of the tomato from the tropics, and, of course, these must be taken for what they are worth; but the luscious, wholesome fruits — if fruits they are—with which the mar kets and shops and barrows now abound do not a little in an agreeable way to vary the diet. Incidentally, they please the eye, which is one of the things that an intelligent cook or provider keeps be fore her mind. The tomato is one of the excellent gifts of America, to the world, and there is now scarcely any P1 ace in temperate or tropical regions where it is not a favorite article of iliet. So many ways of using the tom...

INDIGESTION" CAN IT BE BANISHED ? Most cases of acute indigestion are the result of neglect or of indifference. People get into a foolish habit of think ing that they will be better on the mor row, or in a week or two, and so the complaint gets hold, and the sufferer goes from bad to worse.

In order to banish indigestion, and to prevent its return, take an occasional dose of Mother Seigel's Syrup daily after your meals. Its remarkable effect upon the stomach, liver, and bowels will soon be speedily shown by the improve ment in your health. Mrs M. Scrivener, of 28 Prospect j street, Erskineville, .N.S.W., wanting on January 9, 1913, eay£:— "A few years back I was delicate and weakly, and in almost constant misery j | through indigestion...

SWIMMING By "TRUDGEOX." The record time for the 100 yards was at tacked on Saturday, Jan. 17, at the Mel bourne Club's carnival at St. Kilda, ao.il, con sidei'Ing that the water was fairly smooth and that at least two of the compe ./tors had chances of being selected to represent Vic toria in the Australasian championships something better faan 64 sec. was expected' There were only three competitors in tha event, which was looked upon as a certainty for eiiher T. W. Mason or I. Stedmas, who had both competed in a 100 yards test on the previous Saturday, when Mason just got the verdifct by a touch, in 62 4-osec.

TO HEAT THE WATER JACKET. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
TO HEAT THE WATER JACKET. in a case of piston seizure, or to increase ease of starting in -cold weather, it is help ful to fill the water jacket with hot water. It is not enough to pour the water directly into tie radiator, as its heat is lost before it reaches the cylinders. A funnel and tube should be inserted in. the radiator opening, so as to take the water immediately to the sloping pipe above the cylinders, thus re versing the usual direction of flow, and giv ing heat to the cylinders instead of losing it in the radiator.
SECOND-HAND CARS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SECOND-HAND CARS uas u-my oeen said that appearance, if not exactly everything, certainly goes a long way, and a motorist usually stands a poor chance of selling a car if its exterior be in a bad condition, even though the engine and transmission still be good Purchasers naturally argue that if the outside show neglect, the mechanism will be even more neglected. Consequently, endeavors should be made at all times during a car's working life to keep every part effective and retain the good exterior appearance. A bent and damaged mudguard, a crumpled lamp, a small and unimportant fitting which has become fractured and not replaced are all fraught with suspicion in the would-be pur chaser's mind, and detract more than their face value from the car's price. If the motorist make a point of immediately replac ing anything that goes wrong, he will not only make the car look more complete and effective, but it will have a considerably enhanced value over that which would be obtained if the ...
AN AIR-COOLED CYCLE CAR WRINKLE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
AN AIR-COOLED CYCLE CAR WRINKLE. ^uite a numDer or the 1912 small car brigade have transferred tlieir allegiance to air-cooled "tweenies," or cycle cars. These handy little "prams" are less attractive than the real miniature cars possessing a normal automobile specification a la Liliput, but some of them go.; Their worst defects ar«; connected with rapid cylinder carbonisation, due to the large quantities , of oil required for laill work, and the rather makeshift me thods by which that oil is fed to the parts; and this heavy oiling renders a sooted plpg rather a common occurrence. Now I am quite sure that their designers estimate the com pression ratios of these engines without » thought of carbonisation, and as the normal running condition implies a considerable in crease of the theoretic compression ratio toy dint of carbon-films, no harm is done by reducing the ratio permanently. It is wen worth while fitting the sparking plugs in brass or iron adapters. The "hoisting" of j the p...
