One Tree Hill Mining Co. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
One Tree Hill Mining Co. The One Tree Hill Gold Mining Co. crushed at the Queenstown State battery last week 15 tons of quartz for 42 ozs. 5 dwts. of smelted gold. The mine has four reefs carrying nice gold. The old Swedish and Moonlight reefs, which carried heavy yields in the days of the glory of the Cale- donia diggings at Queenstown and Smith's Gully have been located at the lower level by a tunnel driven over 1000 feet into the hill and those are being worked at a depth of about 200 fete from the surface. During the operations a third reef, nicknamed the Mystery has been struck, from which over 400 ozs of gold. have been obtained from about 120 tons of stone. This reef is now 3 feet wide, and shows good gold in the winze sunk 19 feet from the tunnel and is getting wider and richer every day as the sinking proceeds. This is the first time any deep sinking has taken place; pre- viously only the surface has been scratched, &nbsp; and the old miners have always prophesied t...
Eltham. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
Eltham. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) During last week an official of the Railway Department was deputed by the Commissioners to interview the &nbsp; President of the Eltham and Glen Park Progress Association (Mr Banks) regarding the possibility of the estab- lishment of a flag station to serve that locality. He was instructed to gather information as to the number of residents, and also estates which were likely to be subdivided shortly. The official was escorted over Glen Park by Mr Banks, and interviewed several of the large landholders. One of the latter persons informed the officer that he proposed subdividing his estate in the near future, and a further assurance was given by &nbsp; an influential resident that five houses would be erected in close proximity to and upon the station being estab- lished. The official was much im- pressed by the representations, and stated he would report favourably to the Commissioners. Mr E. Bourke, a former resident of Eltham died ...

Wonga Park. DIGGER LOSES HIS HOME. On Monday evening June 12, the four-roomed house in the orchard of Mr A. Leslie, a returned soldier, was totally destroyed by fire, the origin of which is unknown. It is a severe loss to the digger. Everything in the house was destroyed. As he had a poor crop of fruit last season his loss is more severe The local people have arranged for a social evening to be held in the Mechanics' Institute on Saturday evening, June 24, the pro ceeds to be be handed to the digger to help him along. Such an occasion as this warrants a bumper house.
PRUNING DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
PRUNING DEMONSTRATION. Mr Hatfield, jun., gave a pruning demonstration on Friday last in Mr Thompson's orchard, when there was a good attendance of growers. Mr Hatfield stated that his ideas of prun- ing differed from those which people read about in books, in many in- stances. He studied the growth of the tree, and judged from that how it should be pruned. If his method were followed growers would benefit by it. Interest was taken in the suggestion by those present, but some have an idea of not altogether favoring the exhibition. In the evening Mr. Hatfeld gave a lecture, and chose for his subject &nbsp; "Specimens of apples." It was very interesting, and must have enlightened many orchardists.

Upper .Plenty. (FRoM OUR CORRESPONDENT) Arbor Day was oelebrated at the local, school on Friday aft6rnoon and was a very enjoyable event. A large number of trees had been received from the State Schools Horticultural Society's nursery, and after these had. been..well.and! truly.planted, the. rest of the afternoon was given up to amusements. The parents, visitors, and members of the school c:mmmittee did their best to amuse the gathering. The ladies indulged in.a number of games with the children that they played when they were going to school themselves, such as Here we go round the Mulberry Bush, and Oranges and Lemons. They also took their seats in the sohool'room and had a few minutes' school, whilst the old -buffers and the head teacher (Mr. Webb) joined in a game of cricket with the boys. Then a number of races were run off, and the children regaled with a lot of lollies and biscuits donated by Mr. Webb. Then, towards evening, all present adjourned to the adjacent hall, where t...
A Labour Saving Device. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 June 1922
A Labour Saving Device. Mr. J. N. Gebbie of Lethbridge, who has several patents to his credit, has invented and patented a labour saving d:vice which should prove of inesti n.able value to the primary producer. It consists of an '" Improved Sheaf C.arrier." which is attachable to any make of binder. The ". Improved Sheaf Carrier,' like most successful invcntiinf, is. extremtly simple, and its cost is a mere bagatelle.. Instead of carrying and dropping four sheaves at a tiune, as is ordinarily done, it carries the whole complement of a stook, I6 or more sheaves, and drops them in windrows as desired What this means can he readily understood when it is s:ated the saving in yards walked in a ioo acre paddock going 2 tons to the acre is over i8,ooo yards. There is also this alvantage, that whereas under the old system, in addi tion to this extra distance walked, the man stooking has carried 300 tons of green hay against, under the r.ew sys tem, nothing, as as all the stooker has to do i...

HAVE YOU A ROUND NOSE? QUAINT JARGON USED IN ENGINEERS' WORKSHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 June 1922
HAVE YOU A ROUND I?iOSE ? QUAINT JARGON USED IN EN GINEERS' WORKSHOPS. The above query, addressed: to an engineer's fitter, would. instead of referring to his physignomy, be a re quest for a chisel with a round point. Equally misleading to the unitiat ed are a few other names applied te tools in ouen engineers' workshops, a brief extract of which is given below. A "jig" is not a. dance, but is an appliance for drilling holes accurate ly. A "feather bed" is a groove cut in a steel shaft for the piece of steel appropriately called a "feather" to rest in. A "bolster" is a block used for a stamping-machine. A "cradle" is a support hollowed out in the shape of its namesake. To ask for a "collar" would not resulti in being directed to an out fitter's shop, but would be a request for a circular piece of iron or stel used to act as a stop for a wheel. A "sleeve" would prove to be a piece of metal for a .:heel to revolve tn, a "stud" a piece of screwed steel used instead of # bolt, a "shoe" ...

CONCRETE SHIPS IN COLLISION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 June 1922
CONCRETE SHIPS IN COLLISION. Ferro-concrete ships would not bhe hopelessly smashed like earthenware vessels if they came into collision. It one ferro-concrete vessel travelling at high speed ran mnto another vessel of the same class bow on, damage would naturally result, but the mis chief would be much less than that which would happen to two steel ships, owing to the greater capacity possessed by ferro-concrete for the absorption of shock. The only in stance on record of a collision ol two concrete vessels was furnished during the flooding of a dock basin at Balboa, on the Panama Canal, when two concrete pantoons, 120ft. long by 28ft. beam collided violently without suffering any damage.
