GIGANTIC WINDMILL [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

GIGANTIC WINDMILL A gigantic windmill, with air-vanes   300ft. long, which is expected to gener- ate electricity at 2 per cent. of the pre- sent cost, is being constructed now near Leipzig, Germany. A massive steel tower, 2000ft. high will support the revolving wheel of   600ft. diameter, which carries the air vanes. The average velocity of the wind in the vicinity of Leipzig is esti- mated to revolve the windmill at a speed of 250 revolutions per minute, and at this speed each gigantic air-blade will develop 1700 horse-power. The windmill tower will also be used as a radiator-broadcasting and receiv- ing station, and an interesting novelty is contemplated in the form of a res- taurant built half-way up the steel tower, 1000ft. from the ground. The cost of construction is placed at £60,000, and there will be, it is stated, practically no running expenses. An- other giant windmill is to be erected near Berlin if the experiment is suc- cessful.

This was moved by the Mayor (Ald.   Freebody), as a mayoral minute, and was confirmed by the Council. Mr. H. Curran had submitted a proposal to subdivide his allotment of town prop- erty, but as the above resolution had been carried, the proposal in its pre- sent form was not entertained. Pre- vious to the passing of this resolution 5,000 square feet was the size allowed.

LANYON HISTORIC ESTATE The sale of the old district station of Lanyon will practically finish the cutt- ing up of the old original holdings. When "Duntroon," "Yarralumla," "Gungahleen," and "Tuggranong" were acquired and subdivided into the pre- sent small holdings, "Lanyon" was not resumed- and ,the late Mr. James Cun- ningham removed from "Tuggranong" to "Lanyon" Homestead.     The property has been in the hands of the Cunningham family for 70 or 80 years, and is one of the best known stations in the south.

WINDBAG'S GREAT WIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

WINDBAG'S GREAT WIN. Now that the Spring engagements   are approaching, speculation is rife amongst race followers as to which favourite will carry off the big money. In the preliminary skirmishes which were carried out on Saturday, interest was evinced at the meeting of the cracks, Windbag and Valicare at War- wick Farm. In my notes last week, I   expressed the opinion that Valicare might down the old champion over the mile, but Windbag showed a brilliant return to form, and beat Valicare by half a neck, doing the distance in 1.38, which was a record for the Warwick Stakes. As a result of his win over the   daughter of Valais, Windbag can be truly described as "as great as ever."   and their next engagement at Rand- wick in the Chelmsford Stakes, when the Tattersall's Club will stage their spring meeting, should be the cause of heavy betting. The nine furlongs should favour Windbag, but it can be confidently expected that the owne...

PERSONALITIES Not Desirable in Speech. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

PERSONALITIES Not Desirable in Speech. Keep clear of personalities in gen- eral conversation. Talk of things, ob- jects, thoughts. The smallest minds occupy themselves with personalities. Personalities must sometimes be talk- ed, because we have to learn and find out men's characteristics for legitimate objects; but it is to bo with confidential persons. Do not needlessly report ill of others. There are times when we are compelled to say: "I do not think Bouncer is a true and honest man." But when there is no need to ex- press an opinion, let poor Bouncer swagger away. Others will take his measure, no doubt, and save you the trouble of analysing him and instruc- ing them. And as far as possible dwell on the good side of human beings. There are family boards where a con- stant process of depreciating, assigning motives, and cutting up character goes forward. They are not pleasant places. One who is healthy does not wish to dine at a dissecting table. There is evil enough in a man. Go...

GROWING-UP. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

GROWING-UP. The just-grown-up girl has usually to be initiated into the art of wearing her clothes so that they shall be shown off to the best advantage, and she must also be duly impressed with the importance of neatness and finish. From head to feet she must look after herself carefully. Her hair must be kept bright and lustrous, and arranged as best becomes her face and style, her nails carefully manicured, her stockings meticulously pulled up, and the seam straight at the back of the leg. And her shoes, both indoor and outdoor ones, kept on trees when not in use. By these small attentions to her per- son and clothes the young girl quickly shakes off any gauchiness she still car- ries from her school life.   The just-grown girl's assets in the case of the majority are enormous, and should be made the most of. The just- grown-up one has generally the clear kin of youth, bright eyes, and a lis- som figure. Sometimes there may be   a tendency to a certain t...
