NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 12 February 1914

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is comiug into use in Germany a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing "ood results. The space between pav ing blocks are cleaned out to the depth of about an ino.h, and then a layer of melted asphalt is flowed over the strict surface, tlio depth of the layer being .about one inch. Before it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on and the surfaoe is smoothed. At Frankfort a section of this kind is now laid, and it appears to stand, the wear remarkably welJ. Should tho method prove a success in general practice it will afford an excel lent means of deadening tli£ noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is quicklv carried out, and it need not stop the circulation on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, repairs are easily made.

Backus who are studying tlie big Autumn sprints would very much hku to know just now which of vhe two ^en gagements—Oakleigh Plato or New market Handicap—-Gold Brew is des tined to fulfil. The desire to ascertain Gold >^nrew"s probable Autumn pro gramme is the greater since the report gained circulation that vhe Malstor four-year-old had clipped i)11' wings of the living Traqueue m a live furlongs trial.

APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be interested iu suuie sta tistic.- compiled by Mr Thus. Boss Walker, regarding the actual results of shipments nrade last season from Tas mania, under the private marks of individual oroharditfts. The* opera tions of L'O small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating G10U eases for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 0/10 to 'J/0 per ease. Sixty seven other grown'-, exported between them 32,1(35 and their individual av^age net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged, from 3/9 to o/'J per ease. It iiiiiii bci remembered that Tasraanian apples as a rule do not sell in Europe at. such high prices as thoso from tho main land of Australia.
