Speeds for Turning Un Susual Materials. I· Thie "'Practical Engineer" gives the following information ,n turning uniusual materials: Slate, on ac count of its peculiarly stratified formation, is rather difficult- to turn, but if handled carefully, can be machined ih an ordinary lathe. The cutting speed should be about .the'sname as for cast i;d.' 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 nbt' ?e centred and run on the tall-stock. A satisfactory nmethod of supporting a slate roll having journals at the ends is to bore a piece of lignum vitae to receive the.'turned end of the roll, and cen tre it" for, the tail-stock spindle.

Electric Clothes. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

Electric Clothes. -4--- ?e nlay soon hope to see on the market apparel which includes an electric apparatus for warmlng the hody of the person who wears it. Some time ago hr. Carmichel, prm feasor of physics at the, University of Toulouse, in France, hit upon the idea of inventing electric clothes in an effort to -devise a cure for rheumatism. The garments which he designed, howaeer, while, thee retically all right, were' in many ways eritirely impracticable to wear. For one thing, the wiring made themn too heavy and altogether too stilt to allow any freedom of mnove ment, and quickly wore through the cloth. Furthermore, after the fabric had been. wet a few times, the heating apparatus, rusted and was'. ruined. . . Ultimately, however, another French scientist, Professor HIerr gott, of Belfort,, took up the ex periments, and it is said has at iast succeeded in producing suits made from electrically-wired fabric which meets all practical tests. In the suits made by Protesaor Hferrgot...

ENGLISH, IRISH AND SCOTCH. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 26 August 1914

ENGLISH, IRISH AND SCOTCH. Two gentlemen were together in a railway carriage, And one of them, a "commercial," asked the other If, when travelling, he had ever amused himself by guessing at the respective nationalities of his fellow-passengers. "If," he said, "you observe that your fellow-traveller, on approaching his destination, seizes his bag and coat and begins to make feverish prepara tions to leave the carriage before the train has even arrived at the distant signal, it's a monkey to a mouse-trap that that man is an Irishman. Should, however, your companion, having col lected his traps, remain seated till the train comes to a dead stop in the station, and then leave the car riage leisurely and with dignity, that man is sure to be an Englishman. But should your fellow-traveller remain ;seated till everyone else has left the carriage, in order to see if anyone has left anything behind, that man is a Scotsman!"

It is a train or car which will ruln through the air at a speed es timated by the inventor at 200 or -300 miles an hour. One force raises the train into the air, another drives it through the air. At the demonstration in Lon don one t.rst saw a cigar-shaped car supported on two rails. An elec tric switch wai moved, and thecar was raised into the air and kept there as though held by invisible hands. The only connections with the rails were for the purpose of electrical contact. It was impossi ble even by exerting one's full force to press the train down to the rails again. A second switch sent the train through the air at great speed.

A LUCKY STROKE FOR TENNYSON. The story of how Lord Tnn'yoon won the Newdigate prize at Oxfrd isi worth telling again.

That same evening the three examin ers met. "Whatever," abruptly demanded he wvhose task it had been first to read the poem, "made you think so highly of young Tennyson's effort?" "Why," cried the others, in unanim Ity of surprise, "we only followed your lead. You were for ever mark ing the lines with 'g.'" "A 'g'!" cried their colleague.

This particu lar old salt, after a painful S: lence, turned to the young. man and said, "I like you; in fact, my dear sir, I should like to have your photograph. You skip down' and get it." The nervous and delighted youth rushed off to his cabin and informed his brother officers 0f tle compltment the old man had just paid him.

KEEP ON SMILING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 26 August 1914

KEEP ON SMILING. When the sun has ceased his shinlng, Not a cloud with s~ilvcr lining, Naughtl so futile as repining 11e:ter smile! And though F'ortune may ignore us, iHer dlisdain can never floor us. WVorrics cannot triumph o'er us If we smile! Neither countenances tearful Nor anticpations fearful E'er made dismal prospects cheerful. tut a smile. When life's troubles seem terrific, Is a wondrful specific; Cultivaile this beatific Magic smile! Somel there are who fondle sorrow. And will even gladly borrow Th'ia: which oay corne on the morrow; Others smile; And theby deemn it, with good reason, 10o mankind the blackest treason, li whiat,'or tlle time or season, Not to smile! Tl.ere's no eartih:-y uise for sightin, Awful wasite of time ia crying, Spiend your overy nromnlrlt trying Ju.t to mille; It will b:ilish moelancholy; Worry is the worst of folly; Take this tIp, youll 11nId it jolly \WeI worth while!
