Electric Clothes. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

Electric Clothes. We mny soon hope to sco on tho market apparel which includes an electric apparatus for warming tho body of tho person who wears it. Some time ago T>r. Curmichcl, pro fessor of physics at tho University of Toulouse, in France, hit upon the idea of inventing electric clothes in an effort to deviso a cure for rheumatism. The garments which ho designed, however, while theo retically all rig-lit, were in many ways entirely impracticable to wear. For one thing, tho wiring made them too heavy and altogether too stiff to allow any freedom of move ment, and quickly wore through the cloth. Furthermore, after tho fabric had been wet a few times, the heating apparatus rusted and was ruined. Ultimately, however, another French scient ist. Professor Hcrr gott, of Bolfort, took up tho ex periments, and it is said has at last succeeded in producing suits mndo from eloctrically-wirod fabric which meets ' all practical tests. In tho suits made by Professor Kerrgott the wiring is ...

WHY A MAN'S BRAIN IS BETTER THAN AN ANIMAL'S. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

Speeds for Turning Unusual Materials. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

I Speeds for Turning Un usual Materials. The "Practical Engineer" gives the following information on turning unusual materials : Slate, on ac count of its peculiarly stratified formation, is ratlier difficult to j turn, but If handled carefully, can be machined in an ordinary lathe. The cutting speed should be about the same- as for cast iron. A sheet of fibre or pressed paper should be interposed between the chuck or steadyrest jaws and the slate, to protect the latter. State rolls must not be centred and run on the tail-stock. A satisfactory method of supporting a slate roll having journals at the ends is to bora a piece of lignum vitae to receive the turned end of the roil, and cen tre it for the tail-stock spindlo. Rubber can be turned at a peri pheral speed of 200 foet per mi nute, although it is much easier to grind it with an abrasive wheel that is porous and soft. For cut ting a rubber roll in two, the or dinary parting tool should not be used, but a tool shaped like a knife...

"MOVIES " AS A LIFE—SAVER. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

MOVIES " AS A LIFE-SAVER. Motion pictures seem destined to have a repressing influence on reck lessness and crime. Professor Mun sterberg's invention-the cinemato graph nerve test for chauffeurs,, pilots, nnd other men in charge of passenger and tratiic conveyances places the candidate in a motor car in n dark room before a mov ing picture. A child in the picture darts before them ; a pair-horse viwn dashes directly towards him ; a heap of rock suddenly appears. In every case the would-be chauffeur must act immediately ; his steadiness or unsteadiness of nerve is plainly re vealed. it should be remembered that such n test is as realistic as life itself ; so real was the dog in a recent picture experiment, tbaft a dog in the house dashed *£ it tuid tore the screen to piece*.

Skating on Salt. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

Skating on Salt. Nature has been conquered once more. Men can skate, not on ico, but on salt. A salt skating rink, constructed by the patented process of I)r. Edward Arnold, was re cently exhibited and operated in Berlin. All skaters will welcomo tho in vention of & method of producing, by purely chemical means and with out the employment of a costly refrigerating process, a saline cry stalline mass which exhibits nil the characteristic properties of ice. The surface of the mass can scarcely be distinguished from a surface of na tural or artificial ice, and the re semblance is increased by the fact that the shavings produced by the skates have all the appearance of snow. The mass is entirely odour less and contains no ingredient in jurious to the health or the cloth ing of the skaters. It can be uti lised for skating, with ordinary ice skates, in every season and cli mate, except when the temperature is higher than 86deg. Kahr. The mass can be applied to any tight floor of w...

THE GLORIOUS GUMS OF AUSTRALIA. There are people who see no beauty In ttao gttm tree, by which term they generally know all vorioti&s of the eucalyptus; but to those who trouble to look twice there is nn attraction about Its shape y trunk and limbs, and feathery fol iage which entitles it to considera tion on this account, as well 09 for its many practical uses.

Victory on Saturday rested with Wedderburn by one point, so that now honors are even, As in tho match played at Wedderburn bet« een the two teams, the eighteen that had the best of the play failed in shooting for goal, and thus lost the match. The soil kicking by the winners was exceptionally good, aud served them well. Both teams were fully representa tive, the only notable abs-ntee being Hayes, from Wedderbum's ranks.

VALUE OF THE SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

VALUE OF THE SCALE. Farmers are extremely lax In keep ing any kind of accounts. It might be thought that self-interest would dictate that they should know ex actly the profits they rnaie each year. Yet to ascertain this it is es sential that there he a taking of stock once a year ; and we will guarantee that there is hardly onf farmer out of any hundred who docs this. Dairy farmers are equally lax, in not knowing what their cows do in the way of milk or butter produc tion, in not knowing the cost of | feed, or bow much each cow con sumes per 'day. It seems a very difficult matter to get dairymen to appreciate the tact that dairying is a manufacturing business ; and that to make money at it, it is 6rst necessary to know exactly what cach item costs, thus practicing economies where needed. Until the cost of production is known, it is impossible to curtail or lop off the unprofitable items. It is very evident that one of the first things that must be done is to weigh the milk of each c...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. In view of the increased use of this splendid fodder plant, the opin ion of Mr- Alexander, the manager of H large estate near Inverell, In New South Wales (where IS silos are in use), on the danger of cattle grac ing on lucerne, is worth noting. He holds that tht feeding off of lu cerne by stock if. always attended with a certain amount of risk of loss by tyjnpanitis or bloat. In fact, dur ing certain period? o! tht plant's growth its action on the cow is so active and virulent as, to resemble prussic acid poisoning of cattle fed on immature sorghum. A remarkable thing about it is the fact that this extreme eflcct Is pro duced for perhaps only two or three days in the plant's growth. which explains why cattle grazing in one paddock may suffer badly from blo^t while those in the next mny be im mune, although the lucerne appears to be in exactly the same stage of growth in both. The mana-rcr be lieves that the importance ot luc...
