MONEY MAKES MONEY. Millionaire's Estate Multiplies. [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 2 January 1929
MONEY MAKES MONEY; Millionaire's Estate Multiplies. The rapidity with which. great fortunes jrow in America and become greater, when carefully invested, is strikingly illustrated in tho'e.-icp of the mtat* of the late Pnvnc vhitney, who died suddenly in May, KK7. His estate, for the payment of Federal and State succession duties, was appraised at that time at 190.000,000' dollars, approxi mately £38,000,000, and now, 18 months after his death,' it has increased in value By some £7,000,000.1 -dtie-. to1 ' the apprecia tion in value of the stocks forming tbe bulk of the estate. . But this tolls only half of this Aladdin ikc story. If one 'estimates Whitney's income at £2,000,000 a year at least, a trifle more than fi per- cent, on his capital, and, it' it is true, as a man familiar with ?is affairs asserts, that it was impossible for him lo have spent more than £200,000 a year, or, at the outside, in excess of £300,000 annually, he was able to increase his capital each year by at leas...

FORD'S GREAT POWER. Over Hill 60 in Second Gear. -Recently, a new Ford entered the very select circle of cars that hare, climbed *Hill 60,' leading into Brisbane, in second rear. ' The first car to achieve the almost impossiuie in secona gear was a oianaora Sis. ' This [climb was accomplished about a year ago, and was followed shortly after wards by a Sports '60.' Since that time, until a fortnight ago, no other car has surmounted the hill in second gear. Then another six-cylinder successfully breasted tbe hill. ' ? . ,_. ? ?? The announcement of this achievement created keen interest in motor circles, and during the week Mr. Fred Taylor, of Ford Sales and Setvice, invited motor writers to witness an attempt on the hill by a Kord in second gear.

DUAL IGNITION. New Magneto System. [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 2 January 1929
DlJALpiM New Magneto System. In recent years great attention has been paid;- to the. nductor type of magneto, because many of the defects of the -old type of instiument are avoided, such as tbe, use of iixed windings which eliminate collector brushes and slip Tings. This type of. magneto has proved itself to be very robust and efficient in service. Most of. the types developed up. to the present have been designed for aeroplane work, and it. is significant that most of tbe 'planes that have created long endurance Sights of late have been fitted with this type. The Southern Cross and all other machines of the same make, are exclu sively fitted with this type of magneto, and it would- appear that they are des tined to stay. Recently a similar device, specially designed for car work, has been developed in France, and is at the prc Ecnt moment being exploited in England. Difficulties of Starting. One of the most difficult problems con fronting owners of magneto equipped cars has, in the...
