Shock Absorber. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914

ShocktI Absorber. Ietisnestimated that t4,000,000 i stent h annually in the United States by the users of commercial vehicles alone for repairs'and re placements, principally caused by vibration and road shocks: It is tlierefore very evident that the permanent success of the whole commercial motor industry depends in no small measure upon over coming road shocks wrhich is the greatest enemy in its progress and profit. In London the prificipal Omnibus Company have had to look about with a view to reducing road shocks, and are now using with success a peculiar type of shock absorber, which comprises a layer of Min steel balls around that part of the axle within the wheel. These balls are allowed to move in any direction. Owing to their small point of contact they act as a '" fluid steel ring" around the axle,- and thus effectually divert from it both lateral and vertical shocks.

Metropolitan Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914

SMetropolitan Notes. The waterside workers' demands have at last been published and be fore many days have passed the re sult of such demands should be known. The list of the new scale of wages and hours was published in the Gazette some months ago. It is believed amongst Melbourne shippers that the workers will not go out on strike as the lesson re ceived by the N.Z. strikers is fresh in their mind. Melbourne workers however have the full knowledge that Victorian farmers have their time fully occupied with the wheat, etc., and cannot leave their farms as was done in N.Z. At present there is a big rush of ship ping in Mlelbourne ports and freights are good. Wheat, wool and frozen -meat are being loaded day and night. The freezing com panies are working overtime and are still months behind on orders, so that should a strike take place during the next month or two, thihigs will be very awkward in deed. The cross-country jockey, G. Simpson, who has been so success ful at Broken Hill la...

RENEWING OLD FRUIT TREES When fruit trees become stunted and diseased either by old age, bad soils, or unskilful management, they should be headed down or otherwise renovated, or else cleared out and young ones planted in their stead. MIost trees may be renewed by head ing down, which is the simplest mode -indeed, all trees, excepting the peach, nectarine, and.cherry, willbe much improved by being headed down on their showing aymptoms of decay on their showing symptoms of decay tion the whole of the head or bran ches of the tree should be cut off in a, careful manner, with a saw if their branches be large, and with a knife if not of large dimensions.

A True Story. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914

A True Story. Writing from Bamawm, Vic., Mr. William John Youill, late of Harvey town, Eaglehawk, Vie., says: "In re gard to the statemient I gave you some years ago -as to my cure of kidney complaint, I may say that a short time since I had occasion to be medi cally examined and -was entirely free grom any- complaint." Mr. Youill's original statement -was as follows: "I reel it a duty I owe to.you and to suf fering humanity to senid you this` let ,er, in the ear-nest hope that others who may 'be suffering as I was from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease of the Kidneys, may take courage.and learn from my experience to adopt the same method of treatment that I did, feeling sure that by so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave. This may. seem to some a remarkable statement to make, :but it can be substantiated by anyone, who will take the trouble to inquire for themselves -from me or of my friends who were with me at the time.,.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914

SOIL REQUIREMENTS. With a small outlay for practical ex periments a farmer can iearn more in a season regarding the requirements of the soil he cultivates than in any other manner; and the value of such knowledge will enable him to produce the largest possible crops with the smallest expense for fertilisers. He can dispense with such materials as he has proved to be not necessary on his soil. On the other hand, he can add an extra quantity of any ingre dient with his experiments show to be especially necessary.

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS, In the treatment of weeds, it is em phatiially a case of "a stitch in time saves. nine." They should be preven ted-~from seeding, whenever possible, and whin buying seeds for sowing,.get them pure, so as to 'be certain that you are not sowing wild seeds. Weeds- often grow more vigorously than useful plants, and, as a conse quence, they shade or crowd, or par tially choke the seedlings of the de sired crop. Weeds, naturally, make use of the same food as the cultivated plants among which they grow. Consequent ly, they deprive a crop of a large am ount of nourishment; and they rob the succeeding crop as well. On arable soil, weeds are trespassers- that should be prosecuted with.the utmost rigor of the law. Weeds having large leaf sur face draw from the soil and give off through the leaves a large amount of water, and thereby rob,:the surround ing plants. Miany, 'botanists consider this waste of moisture the most ser ious injury done by the weeds.

Honest John. George Carter, a very just man, carrying on business in a small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole chargeof John, his assistant, and, as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity of deal ing fairly with his customers, left him with these words: "Well, John, if ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." He had not been gone long before a lady-walked into the shop and! ask ed to see some shawls. John, pulling one out from under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating, that the price was half a crown. It was a very nice one; but being able to afford better, asked to -see others. John, ready as ever, fetched-"an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, stated the price to be five shillings. Still she was not satisfied, so, fetching an other one,-also out of the same. box, he asked her how she would like that at half ...

THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914

TH E: MAN IN THEI MOON., SBy A.L.S. Is it possible that the Man in the Moon has descended from the posi lon of a fully-credited reality .to that of a mere figure of speech; but even as such he is of great use to us, es pecially when we wish to assert our Ignorance of anything. When we state that we know no more than the Man in the Moon we are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him with being an agnostic of the purest water. He could scarcely be even that if he did not exist at all. By our common language we are perpetuating a remarkable article of old foliO-lore. Science and the tele .scope give us their own interpretation of the features that we discern on the moon's surface, but in popular .belief there was once really a man there, whatever may now have become of him. He was banished thither for the crime of gathering sticks on Sun day. If we refer to the Book of Num bers we find that a man who gathered sticks on the Sabbath ...

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. Farming is no longer without at traction for the enterprising young man. It is calling to its service the cngineer and the scientist. A farm conducted on modern lines can em brace as many of the newest mechani cal developments at any other form of industry. Many farmers have now their own little labIoratory, for exam ination of the soil, and suitable fertilisers, an electric plant for light. ing ithe house and supplying power to the wvorkshops, petrol-driven milking machines, ploughs and cultivators,and portable engines of the internal com bustion type, for thrashing and barn work. Science having got this grip on agriculture, farm life cannot fail to reclaim many who abandoned it originally on the plea of monotony.
