THE "CHARLEY" EQUIPOISE CAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

THE 'CHARLEY' EQUI POISE CAR. The pneumatic tyre has^ been t?***^ 'the bane of the_motorist,' but without it where would our. 'motor ~ industry - be Pneumatics, although a heavy expense, and at times generally the most inoppor tune a source of trouble and annoyance, have been a leading feature in the popu larising of the self-propelled vehicle, both in private and business life. With the advent of the 'Charley'' motor car patent equipoise suspension, however, it appears that we are on the eve of a r.ew era in motor history.

The new suspension eliminates the mifi cbievous rebound of a car when the wheels strike an obstruction or a gutter, which re bound is always1 preceded by a dip or set tlement as the. springs are compressed.

ADAM LINDSAY GORDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

ADAM LINDSAY GORDON It is 42 years to-day since Adam Lindsay Gordon shot himself at Brighton Beach and the copyright of his 'Bush Ballads and Galloping Rhymes' expired yesterday, un-   der the present Imperial Copyright Act; Mr. Frank Maldon Rbb, of Melbourne,   was some months ago commissioned by Mr. Henry Froude, of the Oxford~University Press, to prepare a biographical and cri- tical edition of the works of the poet. It is expected the book will be published al-   most immediately in London. Six poems   not hitherto appearing in Gordon's col- lected works are included, as Well as some other interesting matter in the Appendices. The biographical notice is, of course, largely based on the late Mr. Alex. Suther-- land's Life, and on the shorter memoir of Mr. J.. Hewlett Ross, both of which are now unfortunately out of print; but it also   contains the substance of a long inter- view with Mrs. Peter Lowe— the widow of &...

THE DAIRY. HOW TO SECURE DAIRY DEVELOPMENT IN HEIFERS FROM BIRTH TILL WEANED. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

THE DAIRY. By 'Jersey.' HOW TO SECURE DAIRY DEVELOP MENT IN HEIFERS FROM BIRTH! TILL WEANED. (Written Exclusively for 'The Mail.') True dairy development of the young calf practically commences when the dairy cow is pregnant, and that is why the wri ter, in a previous issue of 'The Mail,' specially directed the attention of dairy men to the great necessity for judiciously feeding of the dairy cow, securing good development of the foetus or young calf, ensuring strong constitution when born The proper rearing of the young heifer, which is in its turn to take the place of ; the present cow, is, indeed, an important I essential to profitable dairying. Few who rtar calves to-day can realise the very far- ! reaching and good effects which follow the ! judicious feeding and handling of the in- ! fant calf. Could they see clearly the i great advantages at an early date instead : of waiting three and four years then Aus- j tialian dairying production would make j early and marked improvemen...

THE WATTLE PATCH. ITEMS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 29 June 1912

THE WATTLE PAI-JH. By 'Geoff. Swayne.'^ HEMS OF THE WEEK. Bargain sales are very prevalent just now. A group of beautiful Adelaidennes were gazing rapturously into a Rundle street window. Said an almond blossom, 'Aren't they perfect dreams? Just look at that straw beauty; too awfully spon taneous, isn't it!' A double peach bloom remarked, 'Yes, too sweet for heaven. And that cute little felt there? 'Isn't it, now, isn't it just, just?' 'It is too tooty too!' observ ed a plum flower ecstatically. **And see that one with the feathers/' broke in a pink carnation. 'I think that is really the fizzy finish.' 'They are all too double pluperfeclly honeycomby,' ejaculated a damask rose. I left to see my dictionary. The price of meat has advanced con siderably of late, and some of the stock on sale is by no means as prime and robust in condition as an alder man. At a saleyard the other day a suburban, butcher was on the lookout for mutton. By-and-by he came across a pen. of sheep, and bought ...
