An Engineer's Body FOUND UNDER A FLY-WHEEL. SUPPOSED ACCIDENTAL DEATH. Sydney, January 1. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times — 2 January 1909
An Engineer's Body FOUND UNDER A FLY-WHEEL. SUPPOSED ACCIDENTAL DEATH. (By Telegraph from Our Correspondent.) Sydney, January 1. The Ambulance Brigade was called last evening to Messrs. Grace Bros.' power-house, in Francis street, Glebe, where they found the body of John Francis, engineer, lately living at Annandale, lying in the pit underneath the fly-wheel. The body was in such a position that the ambulance men had to strip to their singlets to get it out. The skull and both forearms were fractured. The bearers pronounc- ed life extinct. It is thought that Francis must have been standing on the grating above the fly-wheel tighten- ing a nut, and must have slipped and fallen upon the coupling of the fly wheel, which would have carried him round and underneath into the posi- tion in which he was found.

E OLYMPIC CAMISES-V - WHY OLnrtet A?N? EXPLANATION. / ' Mr E. Norman Gardiner writesti the 'Daily Mai1":- , How many of all who read and talk about the Olympic Games can shaswer the question: Why Olympic? Some perhaps connect it vaguely with the Olympia of Addison road; others have a glimmering memory of Olymple Games held at Athens. Macanlay's fourtb-formn boy, of course, would tell us that thae Olympic Ganies were the games of the ancient Greeks held at Olympia in Ella, But why should thip series of Interna tional meetings inaugurated in 1896, thanks to the inltiative of Baron Plerre de Coubertirn be called Olympic? TWELVE HUNDRED ThEARS' RECORD. The Greeks were the most athletic wre may.almost say the only athletic nation of antiquity, and the Olympic festival was the greatest of all their athletic meetings.
