TYRANNY OF NOISE RELIEF CALLED FOR THE LAW'S INEPTITUDE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

TYRANNY OF NOISE ; ??'. . . '» RELIEF CALLED FOR THE LAW'S INEPTITUDE *, i\'fs a Pro^oun^ saying of one of «(ie Victorian philosophers t_ Uerbert Spencer, I think—who -declared that you might gauge a man's intellectual capacity Iiy the degree of his intoler ance of unnecessary, noises. The pith of the saying is in the word unnecessary.' A noise, however un pleasant, which is recognised by the subconscious as necessary or inevitable, ia. immediately accepted and discounted, 'uereas a nojse? wnich is unnecessary or impertinent is rejected by the sub conscious and . ininediately b- monies an irritant of the most superlative degree. ? The organ of hearing is very close to the brain, and just as nervous irritation may be very effectually soothed by appropriate music, and pleasure, or ; martial ardour, stimulated, so it. is | that by means of inappropriate and discordant sounds it is possible to excite such a degree of irascibility as ; to provoke homicidal -impulses. It is curious that t...

' Through file and water,' is said to be au allusion to the deliverance of the Jews from the ''iron furnace' of Egypt and from the drowning water of tin Red fc-ea. The mure probable deriva- | tiun is that it refers to the Trial by Ordeal existing in Kngland from the Confessor to Henry Ill.'s time. To establish the innocence or guilt of a j person they resorted to fire (or hot iron) 1 ancl water. j The ancient saying. 'A nu.ss is as g-ooo j as a mile.' had its origin in a tale by | Turphi -if two friends. Amis (or Amys) I and A mile (or Amylr). supposed to have j aiiiiuinting him with tlieir Mood.

CRAWFORD ACCELEREST. Australians have taken kindly to motoring, and one of the most notiee able'features in.that connection has been the attraction of the car and its com ponent parts to the invsntivc mind. Vrnong the more recent inventions is the -Crawford accelerest, evolved by Mr. W- Chas. Crawfor . of Sydney, which is ?nfinufactured in Australia. Mr. Craw ford, who was one of the first half doze-- . motorsitB in the southern - capital, realised what eg cramp meant. to the the 'Rests the Sole,' as th- accelerest is callcJ.

"OVER-RUNNING" THE CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

'OVER-RUNNING' THE CAR. Few mechanisms will stand up for long if run continuously at their maxi mum rate of output, and the motor car is no exception. Consequently in almost every branch of power-plant engineering two outputs are specified for any give pie--c of machinery — the maximum of which it is capable and that which it may be called upon to give, day iu and day out. To run well within the maximum out put is the secret of ensuring reliability, whereas to run 'all out' for any length of time usually spells disaster.
