MAGNETIC SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
MAGNETIC SEPARATORS. In different kinds of grinding mills it is found that fragments of iron cause disastrous explosions, as for in Sstance in an English .oil works where iron turnings in the nills gave sparks which set fire to the inflammable ma terial. A number of works in Europe, and especially the ones which suffered 'from this class of accident, are mak ing use of magnetic separators in the shape of revolving drums. Inside the drums are powerful electro-magnets which cause the iron particles to ad here to the surface of the drum, so that the pieces are taken up and de livered over to the other side where a suitable scraper takes them off. In the- improved tyier_ ' ' ..-....... . sel-lnsulated ty- oxie, 5so thLat tlhe coils are heat and moisture proof and the device is very reliable. Such mag netic separators are recommenlded for cocoa or bone mills, chemical works, coal- crushers, sugar refineries, and grain mills, as well as in the textile industries. -*.t-*-.
SPRING MOTOR WHEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
SIPRING MOTOR WHEEL. Oi account of the unavoidable in hl:e·Iit disadvantages of the ordinary .lype of pneumatic automobile tyre, designers have been striving for seve ral years to bring forth a tyre with puncture-proof qualities, yet retaining the necessary resiliency to afford de Ssirlble riding qualities. To this end Ione wheel manufacturer in particular claims to have solved the problem and will place his product on the market this month. The fundamental idea of the wheel is the carrying of the load on horizontal helical springs connected alternately to the outer and inner rims with ball and socket connections. There are 14 of these springs arranged around the periphery of the wheel rim in such a manner that each spring carries 1-14 of the total load on the wheel. When the car strikes an ob struction the shock is communicated through the solid rubber tyre and is taken up by the reaction of the helical springs. The centre of the wheel is made in the same way as any ordinary automo...
OVER-DEVELOPMENT OF MUSCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
OVEI.DEVELOPMENT Ol" MUSCLES. "lu all systems of physical training the only aim and object is to maintain health. I cannot agree," says a mcdi cal man, 'with the methods whose aim is to pile on lumps of muscles on every part of the body.. An advertisement showing a man with biceps like a leg of mutton is enough to determine me to have nothing to do with that sys tem. Those enormous muscles are quite useless-.unless-you.?w?.nt-to-go- on the music-hall stage as a strong man, or wish to convert yourself int'o a hu man cart-horse. Then strain put on the heart in the process of acquiring those disfiguring hunks of flesh about the body counteract all the good that the exercise might have done. The important organs of the body-the heart, the lungs, the liver, and the kidneys-derive no benefit from abnor nml muscular development. IMany trainers have a good working know ledge of ,muscular development and how to .acquire it, but they know no thing aboflt the heart. They cannot use a stethesco...
PARS FROM ALL PARTS. WINDOW FLY-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
PARS FROM ALL PARTS WINDOW FLY-KILLER. Flies in a room seek the windows and crawl over the glass. Linking this trait with an idea for destroying them electrically, an inventor places two parallel wires across and close to tile - pane and connects these to a strong induction coil. Crawling over the bar rier causes the fly to touch both wires. closing the electric circuit upon it self. Instant destruction is the result. e -_?.-, e-.I&
MONOPLANES AND BIPLANES. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
-MONOPLANES AND BIPLANES. For aeroplanes of equal span, cross section, aspect-ratio and angle of in clination. the monoplane has about 15 per cent. more lift than the biplane for equal speeds, according .to F. Handley Page, the English designer. A monoplane has a smaller resistance than the corresponding biplane, but the difference is not great. What is gained in the monoplane by having no plane' struts is lost, however, by the increased ;ize .of the uwder-carriage nmenbers for a given size of propeller. For machines having an area of 250 to 275 square feet, the monoplane is conceded to be the more economical type, but beyond this point the bi plane is superior. -t:-*.-*r

His aged wife, who had stood him for manly years, was blind. Finally he died, and his children gave him a fine funeral.

DO MOTORS WEAR OUT ROADS? [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
DO MOTORS 'WEAR OUT ROADS? Francis Bacon one day found a con ferenco of scientists discussing why it was that a tumbler brimful of wa ter did not overflow .when a fish was placed inside it. As he made a prac tice of taking anything for granted. , lhe brought a glass, filled it with wa ter, and dropped in .a goldfish. Inr tnediately there was an overflow, and the conference acquired a better ap petite for facts. In much the same way, while engineers were puzzled to know why soft iediariubber motor tyros did more damage: to roads than iron wheels and-iron horseshoes, the mini cipal authorities of Paris solvbd the problem by proving they did le.s.
