RAILWAY CONNECTION WITH THE GOULBURN VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
RAILWAY1 CONNECTION WITH \ THE GOULBURN VALLEY. Twice have the Parliamentary Stading Committee on Railways reported adversely on the pro posal to connect Dookie with the Yarrawonga line, and on each occasion the reason advancedhas been tliat the line would not pay. The inference to be drawn from that statement is that the Goul burn Valley and Norfih-Eastern line connection :is not needed; but it, is very doubttul whether the ,'committee in question, if pressed, would care to saddle themselves with the responsi bility of such an obvious error of judgment. When the commit tee visited itlhe district on the last occasion the questions put to the witnesses all tended to show that all the country through which the proposed line would pass was already served with railway communication. That is- so far as being able to get produce lo uie seanoard ana .dag occasional trips to Mel bourne is concerned but the time has arrived when something more than a railway service to the metropolis is requ...
TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. In consequence of the frequency of railway collisons in various parts »'of the wbrldi recently, the directors,, of the Western (State) Railway, which forms part of the Newhaven-Dieppe route to London, are conducting a series of experiments with a new de vice which, it is hoped, will render It impossible for engine-drivers unwit tingly to run past signals. ' The new apparatus, which, from its shape, is known as the "crocodile," is placed between the rails near the dis tance signals, and is so arranged that when the train passes over it con nection is made with the engine in such a way that a powerful siren on the engine at once warns the driver that the signal, although, perhaps; in visible through fog, is against him.

FIGHTING FOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
. FIGHTING F0G8. That London's "particular" —the yellow,, pea-soup atmosphere, which sometimes settles, over the Metropolis and materially adds to doctors' hank ing accounts—may be abolished is the hope held out. by a French scient ist, M. Onderio,, the head of the Lyons Observatory, whose novel rem edy is to be put to the test at. Lyons. The French city suffers almost as much from fogs as London, and M.~ Onderio has formed the theory that these fogs are duetto the enormous: evaporation from the Rivers Rhone and Saone, as they flow through that city. . This theory "Is shared by other scientists, who attribute London fogo to the vapor arising-from the Thames, aB well as to the excessive smoke. •Whereas other scientists, however, have usually proposed to banish fogs by attacking them when they have once, been formed in the air, M. On derio proposes to prevent their forma tion by a very simple plan. His idea is to suppress iTIe rising of .the water vapor by covering the surface of the ...

DEVENISH—DOOKIE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
DEVENI8H—DOOKIK RAILWAY. The ' (influential deputation that 'waited upon the Premier) and .the' Minister., for Railways on "Wednesday of .last week in connection "with the Dook'ie" Devenisli railway connection arid the granting of certain privileges to theShepparton freezing works met with a fair reception. The inception of the. latter industry is chiiefly responsible for the re newed interest that is being' taken in connecting the Dookie with the Yarrawonga line. When the construction of the line from Shepparlon to Dookie was mooted some years. ago, the question of its continuance to a junction on the Yarrawonga; Tine was discussed. Definite ac tion was, however, waived by the late Mr Speight (Chief Commis-; sioner of Railways), as the dep utation was divided as to the most suitable place for the con nection. Parochial interests have now been sol aside and those in terested are unanimous in the! opinion that the lines should be lmked at Dcvenish. The chief arguments at present in f...
