Shipyard Secrets. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 10 July 1914
Shipyard Secrets. Every shipyard that builds for tho Navy must take great precautions that nono of tho secrets entrusted to its enro shall leak out.

All tho draughtsmen engagod on the draw* ingfl of a now warship aro sworn to secrecy, and tho plans aro in variably kept under lock and key when not In use.

Worth Remembering. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 10 July 1914
Worth Remembering. Many of the little problems which we encounter in daily life may bo overcome if we but give them ft momont's serious thought. Aud, once we discover a method of doing a thing neatly or of saving labour, we should remember just how wo did it, /or the experience will prove useful to us again some day. FiO. > Probably many of our renders have at some time met with a stubborn glass stopper which ab solutely refused to leave the necU of the bottle. -Tapping the stopper with something hard is not a method to be recommended-it is often accompanied with danger to the neck of the bottle. The best method Is to warm the neck and inako It expand around the Fig 2. stopper, when the latter may bo easily removed. All that is necessary is to take a stout piece of string, the coar ser the better; give It a turn around the neck, ns shown in Fig. 1, and saw back and forth' a minute or two. If it is a small bottle grip it be tween the knees and work with both hands, but if it is" a...
Cause of Earthquakes. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 10 July 1914
Cause of Earthquakes. Tho prevalent idea that earth quakes are chiefly caused by vol canic eruptions or oxplosions is now hold by scientists to bo wrong. Professor Mllnc-one of our greatest authorities on the subject-says: " While admitting a few* small earth quakes to be volcanic in their ori gin, we recogniss the majority of these disturbances as tho result of a sudden fracturing of tho rocky crust under tho influence of bending." This- bending is brought about by the gradual contraction of the earth, which'is held to be tho chief cause The Himalayas- tho highest range of mountains in the world-aro of comparatively recont geologic for mation, and the sumo forces which j found these tremendous folds are,;.| no doubt, responsible for tho ro-.j cent earthquake. I Japan is a country which is con-; | tunually shaken by- earthquakes,. arid, i although there aro a largo number of volcanoes in tho country, they | .themselves aro responsible for but a small proportion of the tremors.

Tunnel Manholes. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 10 July 1914
Tunnel Manholes. In all railway tunnels refugo or manholes aro let into the walls to enablo platelayers and others to step inside for safety during the passing of a train. In ordinary cases there is generally enough room between tho railway line and the wall for a person to stand without being in any danger, but in the event of a goods train pass ing with a loose, flapping water proof cover, it would mean prob able death unless the manholes wero WithinNoasy reach. Tlieso refuges uro usually uhout -1ft. wldo mid (5ft. high, and are recessed into the wall about 2ft. They aro generally about 20 yards npart, and are spaced alternately on either Bide ("staggered" it is called), so that a person haa only 10 yards or so to run either way to get into a position of safety. " It's a risky business, making pointod remarks about anyone." Why ao?" ''ilecdUau you may have ^o swallow them.''

Fathoms Down! 4 .MID THIS ItATTO/n) AND KOAK ABOARD THE SUBMARINE WORK. They call It ft, boat; but it Is unlike &lt;i«y boat that was ever built. At first It seems to bo nothing more than a diabolical contrivance specially designod to burst your eardrums. The noise In deafening. You have to shout to bo hoard. When the submarine dives, the sound is Hko tho clatter of hall on n corrugated Iron roof. A tiny noil dropped on the outsido of tho steel hull reverberates within like a clang ing bell. Over all rises tho brood ing buzz of electric fans and motors and tho "pop-popping" of gasolono and air-drlvon machinory exhausts.

Food Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 10 July 1914
Food Reform. The normal, heft!thy man quite rightly does not think much about what ho cats so long as It tastes fairly good and thoro is plenty of it. Thoro aro reasons, however, why even lie shotild lako an interest in the .question of diet reform-a question which lias become so acute of lato years. The great movement of scientific research and social study have both inade perfectly clenr the fnct that tho majority of the people are not as healthy and as efficient as they might be, and ono of the root causcs of this is that they do not obtain sufficient food, or that they do uot obtain tho right kind , of food.
