AWKWARD CASH. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914
AWKWARD CASH. Pure silver, broken into small, ir regular pieces, forms the pay of th^ Chinese soldier. Payment is an ex traordinary process. The whole of the night preceding is occupied in weigh ing out for each man his required quantity »»f silver, which is a very tedious huMncss and only successfully accomplished bv infinite care, for here a piece the size of a pin's head has to be chipped off, and there a picce of similar minute proportions added. Each man's silver bits are carefully wrapped in paper, with his name en dorsed upon it, and the various par cels are distributed upon parade. A private receives three and a half taels —equal to about 19/—a month, and, having got his silver parcel, loses no time in exchanging the pieces at the nearest tradesman's shop, where for each tacl (5/5) he receives 1000 small coins, called cash.

A NOVEL DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914
A NOVEL DEVICE. M. Louis Blcriot has invented a de vice whereby aeroplanes and water planes will be able to moor thems^'vis to an overhead cable. Trials of tnf invention were made recently in France by the airman Pegoud oh an ordinary Bleriot monoplane,- fitted above the car with the invention. The contrivance is of wood in the shape of an open capital V, the two arms of which serve to catch the cable. When the machine rises, a catch at the foot of the V is released by pressure on the cable, which slips into a circular hole, and the machine, gliding; along the cable, comes to a stop in a few yards. When the airman wishes to leave his moorings, he simply starts the propeller, and the downward pull on the machine releases the catch. Cinematograph records of the trial have been sent to the British and French naval authorities.
THE GAS METER. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914
THE GAS METER,. Tho heart of a gas meter is its pair of liellows. There aro two In each bos, one filling- itself with gas while the other is pumping it through the house, each alternating on the job. These bel lows aro made of two steel diaphragms, each connected by a piece of sheepskin thoroughly saturated iu oil. Only selected pelts can be used. Each is examined in a dark closet by a man who passes it over & tuhlo in u'.iich there is a hole about four mvhe.s square. Through this a light is thrown from beneath, and thus any thin spots or holes, hopeless defects, aro shown and the skin is rejected. Just behind the three dials in .your meter in the top of the box is the mechanism which figures up your monthly gas consumption. Below arc the two hollows. While one is filling up, tho other is discharging its gas into tho service pipe. Each one, when inflated, holds a fixed and definite volume of gas, and measures the costly, intangible .substance just as we might measure water w...
MARY'S LAMB UP-TO-DATE. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914
MARY'S LAMB UP-TO-DATE. Miss Mary was the possessor of a diminutive and immature specimen of the Ovis Aries, a wool-bearing and ruminant quadruped, whose llosh is highly esteemed by persons to whoso gustatory organs its flavour is agree able . Tho shaggy and agglomerated fila ments constituting in their collective capacity its natural outer covering, in tegument, or garment presented t-o the vision a surface absolutely etiolated and albified, and rivalling in immacu lateness the lustrous mantle of' crys talled vapour that commonly char acterizes the winter landscapo. And to whatsoever locality, conti guous or remote, wHither Mary's vag rant fancy, the call of duty, or per chance tho parental mandate impelled her, when not otherwise engaged, to betake herself, this juvenescent repre sentative of tho genus Ovis Aries, with a fidelity remarkable in one so immature and inexperienced, could be counted upon with absolute and ontiro certainty to accompany her.
