A NEW FIREGUARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
A NEW FIREGUARD. A novel form of fireguard has been recently placed on the market. The old-fashioned nursery or kit chen- guard, when not required, takes up a lot of storage room, and the invention is designed to obviate this inconvenience by collapsing. when not in use, into space under the kerb. When required, the guard, which is formed of lattice work, diamond pattern, is drawn up from the kerb, and stands join high by 4ft long by 1 f t deep. It is perfectly rigid and strong, the lat tice being made of 3/8in. iron. It is not, however, essential that the guard should be of iron; it can be constructed of brass or similar ma terial.
A DELICATE INSTRUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
A DELICATE INSTRUMENT. 1 SClfiiHomeiers, T5F''* SeTsmograpTTsT as they are more generally termed, are instruments for detecting or measuring the earthquake shock or wave. Some of the modern ones are extremely delicate and sensitive, so sensitive, in fact, according to Milne, that if the solid column of masonry communicating with the rocky floor be pressed with the hand, the seismograph which rests on the masonry will be affected, and the horizontal boom or pendulums be put oh high buildings opposite each other on one of London's traffic streets when crowded with heavy drays, they will show that the tops of the buildings bend over slightly toward each other.
TAXES ON BACHELORS AND BRIDES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
TAXES ON BACHELORS AND BRIDES. The Bulgarian bachelor, who has to pay an annual tax of 8s. ^d. a year, has less cause to grumble than many a. British celebrate a couple of centuries ago. During the elev en years from 1695 to 1706 the man over 25 who shirked matrimony was called on to pay an annual shilling, with a further sum, ranging accord ing to rank, from 5s, for a gentle man to £12 jos for a Duke — a tax which yielded to the revenue about ^1,000 a week. In these 'good old times' the Briton had to pay a tax when he took a. wife, and an other tax every time he .qualified as a father* Thus, a Duke's nupV tials cost him ^50 4s. ;. his heir} ^30- 2s.; and for .each later male addition to his family his joy was discounted by a payment of £2$ as. TJie Benedict whose r income was less than: ^,*50 ajyear had to pay as. 6d. for his bride,- and as. every time he became a father. - ?==^^=====-- There is nothing the body suffers that the soul may not' profit by.

Facts & Fancies. Galileo and the Telescope. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
Facts & Fancies. ? — -« Galileo and the Telescop*. Galileo, to whom is usually ac corded the distinction of having devised the telescope, is known to have made one in May, 1609. It is asserted, however, that the dis covery on which the instrument is based was made the vear before in Holland, and was acfidental. The apprentice of a spectacle-maker is said to Have noticed that when two lenses were held a certain distance apart they gave a magnified and inverted image of any object seen through them. According to: tra dition, his employer repeated the experiment, and constructed a tele's cope which was placed on exhibi tion in October, 1608. Galileo's telescope was not produced, until the following year. The Cow Tree.

STORIES OF CONJURING AND CONJURORS. Coms [?] to Snakes. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
STORIES OF. CONJURING AND CONJURORS. , ? « ? iu Jiiakes. ? A money trick of Hindu jugglers invariably causes great amusement to everyone who sees it except the victim of the joke. The juggler takes three copper coins and places them in the palm of some one in the group of spectators bidding film hold them as tightly as he can. By and by it seems to the holder of the coins that they are swelling and growing hot. They seem to be moving about. He holds his hand closed as long as he can, and then opens it, always with a gasp of fright; for there wriggling about are three tiny snakes. A Discomfited Card Sharp. To be a magician one has to have a quick eye and keen perception, and frequently the magician is able to put his knowledge and skill to some practical though unexpected use. On one occasion Thurston was travelling' from Constantinople to Bombay by, steamer. There was a nightly game of cards, most of the money going to a handsome Frenchwoman called Madame Mar celle, a brunette whose...

BOTTLING MILK BY MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
BOTTLING MILK BY MACHIN ERY. The filling of milk bottles by ordinary methods is such a tedious task for large metropolitan milk companies that a machine to do the work has become an absolute neces sity. The latest form of milkbottl ing machine is operated by two men, one to operate the machine itself, the other to see that it is properly fed with bottles; it has a capacity of 7,680 bottles an hour. Each operation, which takes about 15 seconds, fills with milk twelve quart bottles in one carrier and 20 pint bottles in another. With almost human- intelligence the machine picks up a carrier of empty bottles, moves it under and lifts it against a battery of spouts from which the milk issues, lowers and carries it to an apparatus which automatically caps each bottle, and then discharg es the carrier upon a car. This car carries the filled bottles either to a cold storage room or a platform from which wagons are loaded.
DOUBLE MAIL-BAG APPARATUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
DOUBLE MAIL-BAG APPARA TUS. I A new bag exchange system, for railway mail-vans, which has been given a test on the Illinois Central Railway, is based on the use of pivotted arms. The apparatus is of the 'giverand-take' type, and the exchange of bags is made by pivot ted arms that release and catch , the rings .to which the bundles of bags are attached. Fastened to the door of the mail-van is an arm for delivering the bags, and a grasping device for receiving them. The bundle of bags to be delivered from the van is strapped to a ring, which is provided with a short spur that fits into the end of the delivering arm. As the van passes the station, the ring is caught by the grasping device on the post, the spur pulls out of the delivering arm, and the bundle of bags is lei I behind. In receiving mail on the van. the same process is carried out, except that the action is reversed. Both the delivery and receipt of mail is ac complished simultaneously and with out jar, a sharp click indica...
