AROUND WILLAURA. THE WHEAT CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 15 January 1914
AiuOnUJ WUIAUBSA. THE WHEAT CITY. Willaura, situated half way between Ararat and Dunkeld, on the Hamilton line, is a city of wheat. Long before you enter the township you find this out. There is, just now, wheat .on every side, and tle buzz of the harvester greets you everywhere. Far away, out of earshot, moving clouds of dust tell you of other harvesters, all busily engaged in tearing the golden wheat from its stalk. It is a township reminiscent in a way, of Diekens's city of Eden' whiclh lark Tapely visited, for that fif. teen vea:rs ago there was no Willaura only ihe notion of it. The very name of the place 'is new. It used to be called Wickliffe road, and it was a mere roalsiilo station of really no account But, unlike Eden, Willaura material. ised into a fine, thriving township, busy always, but simply throbbing with work at this time of the year. The Willaura people are exceedingly proud of their record. You are not lone in the place before you hear the stock story illustratin...

A NEW MONO RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 15 January 1914
A NEW MONO RBAILWAY. Mr E. W. CChalmers Kearney gave a lemonstration at Olympia, London, re cently with a working model of his mono-railway. A model of the sort has been shown before, but the present de monstration was given to make clear two things which the inventor has now accomplished. The car, which is one sixteenth of full-size and is driven elec trically, having been stopped-when as cending a gradient of 1 in 7 was start ed again and continued its climb. It is claimed that this has never before been accomplished on such a steep gradient on a railway. It is proposed to use slopes of this kind on Kearney under ground railways, each station being on the street level and the track descend ing to a depth-of about 100 feet be tween stations. In this way accelera tion on leaving a station will be got by gravity, and the slowing up will be brought about by ascending the hill to the next station. The other point made clear was the great security against derailment of the car. .Kinks h...

While Ministers have express ed themselves as confident of Mr Hut chinson's return, they have concentra ted on toe Borung electorate the work of those of his colleagues who have been so fortunate as to be returned inopposed, and two Ministers went through Ararat yesterday afternoon to s...

IMPRISONED IN A GLACIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
IlIPISONMED INl A GL CIER. &mome thrilling experiences once bLe fell Mr. Frederick Chamberlin whilst he was exploring the Alps. In the "Wide World Magazine" he writes of as adventure that befell him on the after noon of a September day when he was descending the snow slope of a mou. tain .- Suddenly I found myself in front of a particularly nasty scrac, or ice-ridge. that gave very little foothold. The surface was not broken and crumbly, but just smooth. treacherous ice. How ever, I was not going to be daunted, so I wormed my. way up, and was about to descend the other side, when with out warning my feet shot from under me, and I started careering down the slope at break-neck speed. Down I slid. straight through a funnel-shaped hole into a partly-formed crevasse. I brought up sharply against a small bar of ice that only lust prevented me from continuing my headlong carcer into a gaping chasm below. "For a few seconds I lay half-stunned. then I carefully got on my feet, felt ...

A REMARKABLE BIRD COLONY. The most remarkable bird colony in the world is on ITat Island, in the Great Salt Lake, Utah The island is. about twelve acres in extent, and on a rocky pinnacle a hundred feet above the brine, with not a drop of freeh water to be found, and where there is nothinm to excite the cupidity or com mercial instinct of man, the birds nulls. pelicans, herons, and cormorants hv the thosisand-make their home The island can be seen atea distance of ten miles, risine like a "cockred hat" ent of the sapphire of the inland sea. The birds are utterly fearless. Pri tected as they are by the laws of the State, they have had little causee to fear man and his death-dealing wean ons. It is necessary to use the creates+ care to avoid steppine on the nests and cns of the tens of thousands of sea fowl that have established their rook eries on the islet.
