A MARVELLOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
A MARVELLOUS MACHINE. We hear through a New York corres pondent that a New England inventor has perfected a machine for making n'siil which is truly a marvel. It is said that the trial machine, full size, not a model, worked to perfection the first time a belt was run on. Ordinary machines now in use, which ope rate in thesame manner as a pair of shears, make 250 nails per minute, and compound machines, consisting of several sets of shears working in what is called a vibrator, are able to turn 1,250 nails per minute. But this new maehine,incredible almost as it may seem, makes at half-speed 12,000 hails jier minute, or three tons in a day of 10 hours. Theiprocess'is of the sinplest des~e riptioh. Instead of having'separate shear-like cutters through which to feed the strips, the cutters consist of smalL tempered steel?lies.imbedded in two narrow cylindrical rollers, which have much the appearance oftiwo cog wheels with dinminutive cogs. ?Between these rolls the strip of metal is fed...

A FAR-SIGHT MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
A FAR-SIGHT MACHINE. Mr. Edison is reported, in a conversation with a reporter who. solicited his ideas on the subjec" of the projected world's fair fin :New York City, as saying that he would take an aere of space in such a fair and com pletely cover it with his inventions, of which he has.no less than 70 now under way. "One of the most peculiar,- and now promising good results," said Mr. Edison, "is what I may call a far-sight machine." By means of this extmrordinaryinvention, the Electriczal Review says, he hopes to be able to increase therange of vision' by hundialds of miles, so that, for instance, "'a man in New York eunld see the features of his friend in Boston isvith as much ease as he could see a per formance on.the stage..." That," he added, '" would be anlinvention wortliv a prominent place in the world's fair, and I hope to have it perfected long before 1S92."
WHEN SHOULD A CHILD GO TO SCHOOL? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
WHEN SHOUL??D L A COIOLd G TO SCHOOLI Dr. Jacobi, after a careful examination of the growth and development; of the child fixecs the' school agb at the end of thd si'entlr year, and Hufeland, in his work on the "Art of Prolonging Life," says--" All labour of the mind which is required of the children before their seventh year is in opposition to the laws of nature, and will prove injurious to the organisation, and prevent its proper development."' Spurzhein and Broussais alike condemn intellectoual labours during the early years of life, and agree that "precocity of mind is nearly always disease. Tissot, a learned philosopher and practical physician, says-" No custom is more im proper and crel! than that of some parents who exact of their children much intellectual labour and great pirogress; of study.

HOW TO MAKE DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
HOW TO MAKE DIAMONDS The making of artificial diamonds has bees the subject of immense thought and research on the part of chemists. Up to this time it has eluded all theeffortsof the experimentera. thiough carbon crystals c~usely plprunhing l gem have more than once bccn ?a.ued, rnd many chemists think it is only a mattet of time, and not a long one at that, when this secret will be wrenched from nature. In some recent experiments on the effects of high temperature and pressure on carbon, carbog rods were surrounded by benzine, paralimn trencle, chloride, or bisulphide of carbon and ·pbjeceted to great prcssure in a hydraulii press, the rods in the meantime being heated by having an electric current passed through them. In some cases a considerable amount of gas was evolved, and a soft friable deposit of carbon produced. In no case was the density of the carbon increased. When the rod was surrounded with silica the latter fused and the rod was largely converted into Iraphite. The s...

Nth. Melbourne Battery Social. The second Annual Social in connec tion with the Band of thie North Mel bourne Garrison Artillery was held in the Orderly-room, Ireland-street, on Friday evening, March 29th, and was attended by about one hundred couples, who spent a very enjoyable evening. Among the visitors were Lieutenants Robertson, Minash, Leaves and Hiill. The floor was in capital order, tile room was tastefully decorated with flags, and the music sup plied by the Band fairly good, though closer attention to time in the circu lar dances would have been an improve mient. Even the presence of two big guns at ore end of the room didn't seem to affect the fair sex in tlheslightest, unless it was with a feeling of curiosity, which is only natural to them. Gunners Davidson and Bosisto fulfilled the positions of Mi's.C. with satisfaction, and the hlon secctalaes, Sergts.

CLOTH AND PAPER OF CORN HUSKS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
CLOTH AI~ND PAPER OF CORN HUSKS. One of the best utilised waste products in Austria, resulting in the manufacture of largs quantities of paper and cloth, are corn housas. The husks are boiled with an alkali in tubulsa boilers, as a result of which the fibres of the husks are found at the bottom of the boilel in a spongy condition, filled with a glutinous substance, and which proves to be a perfect. dough of corn meal, containing in a conces trated form all the pabulum originally con tained in the husk. The glutinous matter ix pressed out from the fibres by hydraulia apparatus, leaving the fibre in the shape of a mass or chain of longitudinal threads inter spersed with a dense mass of shorter fibre. The linen made from thelong fibres furnishes a very good substitute for the coarser kinds of flax and hemp, and is superior to jute. gunny cloth, coir, and the like. The paper. for which mostly the short fibres are used -the long fibres constituting the material for spinning-is stronger t...
