Circular Saws of Paper. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 6 March 1914

Circular Saws of Paper. Paper is at present used for all possible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It has oven, been possible by means of compression to give it n. degree of hardness comparable with stone, so that it can bo used as building ma terial. The latest- use for paper however is perhaps the most pecu liar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufacturing cir cular saws from paper. These paper saws are used for the manu facturing of fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws made from drawing paper were shown in an English exposi tion. The saws wero driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabi net makers can use them without further planing.;

An officer known by his friends to be a rather "close'' man, has had many a passage ot arms with his wife by reason of that very close ness. . hi one occasion a friend had the misfortune To enter just as the pair were ending an argument 'touch ing some question of household ex penditure. The friend was just in time to hear the husband say : "Mario, .you cannot hoodwink me in these matters. Do you think that 1 haw lived all these years for nothing V" "I shouldn't be at nil surprised.'' was the crisp reply. A man's coat should be laid per fectly tlat with the wrong side down. The sleeves should be spread out smoothly, and then folded back to the elbow until each end of the sleeve is even with the collar. Fold the revers back and then double the coat over, folding it directly in the centre seam and smoothing it out care fully.

Why Rhodes Was Single. . i . | Some good stories of Cecil Rhodes j are told by one of his private sec | retaries, Mr. Gordon le Sueur, j F.R.G.S. "He tried to give Hie impression of being without feeling;"" we are ! told, "but nothing is more absurd. He .was crammed with- sentiment to his linger tips, but adopted a bru tal manner and rough exterior to cover up the weakness of sentiment, and thus many a broken-hearted man and woman left him with the impression-entirely erroneous-that he was a callous brute lacking in human sympathy." " Rhodes was very careless-about his clothes, and when travelling would make a favourite of one particular coat, and wear it; every' day.. One such favourite he. at last ordered to be. sent to the tailor to be cleaned and mended. Mr. ' lo Sueur re ceived it back next day with the following note :-"Dear Sir,-Here with the Right Honourable C. J.

At Horsham he had come into contact with men of a kind he hsd Tint met at Natimnk - men of wealth, substance and education, ?"sports." (Applause) SG spake Mr ,! Petrie at the fare-* well to Mr Washington at Horsham. The wonder is, that the rest of the banqueters applauded Buch untrue and insulting remarks. As they did not protest, we are right in assuming that they threw out their chests and remarked, sotto voce, " We ave the people" But everyone knows who takes the trouble to think, that the kind of men Mr Petrie referred to only exist in a city in a greater num ber than in a town or village. It is a statement that no thinking man would introduce except in the com* paratite sense, because, following it one logically, we could Gay that Mr Washington had met more criminals, drunkards, river bankers, racecourse dwellers, a...
