OVERHEAD RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
OVERHEAD RAILWAY. An ingenious overhead miniature railway may be seen doing' effective work at Victoria Station, Manches ter, for the conveyance of passeng ers' luggage from one platform to another. Passengers are never tir ed of watching the movements of tffe aerial engineer as he passes from one part of the station to an other with his swinging basket of luggage. The track, which is a double one, is j suspended from the roof, and runs/ between platforms Nos. 5 to 8. Its motive power is electricity, and the motor is contain ed; between the wheels on the track. Not only does it drive the little rail way, but it also lifts or lowers the basket as the man who works it wills. The basket holds about 15 cwt*. of luggage. As many may know, the platforms mentioned are connected by the subway principle, and the miniature overhead rail way was adopted as the only effici ent means of transferring luggage and other parcels from one platform to another expeditiously.
WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY IN TORPEDOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY IN TORPEDOES. A new and terrible engine of war, a torpedo in which the principle of wireless telegraphy is employed, is now engaging the attention of the Admiralty. Remarkable powers are claimed for it by its inventor, a fair haired, blue-eyed young man of Waltham Abbey, named Alec Avis, who, though trained as an electrical engineer, was torcea t-y circumstan ces to serve behind the counter at his mother's tobacco shop. It is claimed by the inventor that his tor pedo can be started, steered, and fired from a distance — can destroy any vessel at a range of ten miles or even more. It can be made large enough to carry a ton of explosives, and its manipuliation requires no special skill.
THE POWER OF A THUNDERBOLT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
THE POWER OF A THUNDER BOLT. During a thunderstorm at Klan sthal, in Germany, a thunderbolt struck a wooden pillar and melted two nails instantly. From the mass of the nails and the heat required to melt them, Dr. Grottewitz, an elec trician, has calculated that they could only be fused artificially by an electric current of 200~amperes at a pressure of 20,000 volts. Applied for one second this amount of en ergy is equivalent to 500 horse power, and applied for one-tenth second to 50,000 horse power.
