HINTS AND TIPS RELATING TO MOTOR CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915
HINTS AND TIPS RELATING TO MOTOR CARS. (Per favor Carey Motor Co., Balla rat.) A starting hint.-Place a ht stove lid up against the intake manifold, aind in five minutes the engine will think it is summer, and start easily. Destructive strain.- Letting the clutch in suddenly to get a push in overcoming road obstructions, such as mud or snow, puts a destructive strain on the parts between the en gine and drive wheels. SImpossible starting.-It is well to remember that a few drops of water frozen in the bottom of the float chamber will stop the feed outlet, and render starting impossible: Small tyre cuts.-A mery small cut that extends to the fabric will often result in a big sand blister that will strip the tread from the fabric for many square inches. Rim sticking.-Tyres should not be allowed to stick to the rims. -A certain amount of slip and give will. enable you to get much more mile age than when the tyres are stuck fast to the rims. Uneven brakes.-Oil working out of the axle hous...

FORD CARS. The latest model Ford cars have just come to hand, and the Carey Motor 'Co., Ballarat, are unpacking and assembling same at the Ford hea&lt;Jquarters for this district, Arm strong street, Ballarat. They have several new and improved features. The body has a pleasing streamline effect, with a scuttle dash, and the car is now fitted with electric light. Some time ago the Ford Motor Co. discarded the speedometer, as being unreliable. After the usual Ford research and experiment be fore fitting another one, they are now fitting a*.new speedometer, with a direct drive. It is the attention to detail that has made the Ford reputation, and what it justly claims to be-the Universal Car. The Russian Government has placed an order for some thousands of Ford cars for their army, after exhaustive tests, thus proving their reliability under hard service con ditions. - There is an ever 'increasing de mand for Ford- cars, and the Carey Motor Co.'cannot guarantee deliv ery unless ...

OUR SENSATIONS OR IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
OUR SENSATIONS OR IMPRES SIONS. The following address was given by Rev. T. W. Davis (President) it the opening meeting of the Bacchus Marsh United Churches Debating Society: Knowledge is a great and wonder ful'thing; yet it does not always engender satisfaction and peace. All our human knowledge though might be symbolically represented by a tiny island, surrounded by a limit less ocean. Sir Isaac Newton must have realised this when he picked up a few grains of sand from the seashore, and said, "These I know; the rest I have to learn." Even after spending an eternity in con templating the universe, there would still remain the inexhaustible chain of being completely lost in the In finite. Still we must press on, and gain all the knowledge we can while life lasts; although there must ever be a vast number of things which be long to the domain of the.unknown. We are told that there are five doors to human knowledge. What are these five doors, and what do they open out to us? They are s...
FOOTBALL. (By Eye Witness.) [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
FOOTBALL. (By Eye Witness.) Bacchus Marsh played Exford Stars on Melton ground last Satur day. The game was inclined to be a bit rough, owing to overcrowding the ball. The Stars have some fair players, but no combination. Exford won the toss, and kicked with the wind, but were unable to make use of it, owing to the good defence of the Marsh backlines--H. Densley being a tower of,;strength to them. In a rush for goal, J. Dens ley had a shot, but only a point re sulted. The same player marked the kick-in, and added another point. The play was kept .well to wards the Red and Blue goal, and Hughes snapped third point. Some good even play followed. J. Val lence (who was playing well) gave the forwards a chance, and Hughes, taking a fine mark, kicked first goal for his side. Exford worked the ball forward, but were unlucky in hitting the post, which gave them the only point for the quarter. Hughes added another point to the Marsh score, finishing the quarter with Bacchus Marsh, 1 goal 4 b...
Smart Idea. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
Smart Idea. Some little time ago an Irishman was being shown the enormous saving he could make if he used a certain kind of stove. "Take this one," said the dealer, "and you will save at least half your coal." "Begorra," was the reply, "then I'll take a couple and save the lot!" Clarence was usually so restless and fidgety in church that his mother was obliged to reprove him from time to time. One Sunday he was very quiet and well-behaved. "What a good little boy Clarence was in church to-day!" his mother said.. "I was so proud of him." "Well," said Clarence, "I. had to be. The choir looked right.at me, and sang over and over again, 'Please be still, please be still!'"' Photographer: Your son had some p!hotographs' taken a long time ago, mr:d here is a proof I happen to have by me. A capital likeness, don't you think so? But the gentleman hasn't paid for them; yet, I am sorry to say, Father: H'm that's a good deal morq 1ike lim! The value of cotton manufactures ýx;,orted from the Br...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
THE Italian Parliament decided to declare war against Austria, and the Army very soon gained a vic tory, taking several thousand pris oners. This increases the horrors of the war, but it also strengthens Russia, and may hasten the end of the war. The reconstruction of the British Ministry is a powerful testi mony to the strength of the Mon archy. Changes are effected by mutual consent, and "business as usual" goes on. The crops are moving wonder fjlly since the recent rain. The farmers are jubilant and no wonder. There are still a few late crops going in. Although we have had nice growing weather during the last week, the grass is coming on slowly, but we cannot expect much grass for the winter, when the autumn rains, came so late. . We have had nice mild rains for the week, amounting to 32 points, assisting the growth of vegetation materially. Farmers are looking for ward to a good season. The edible mushroom is again in existence, and there are many looking for them. Messrs. ;McPh...
DO DOGS DISCOVER CRIMINALS? [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
DO DOGS DISCOVER CRIMINALSt Do dogs discover criminals? Won ,drous stories of their prowess are re ported from the Continent, but in no case in which the dog has been call ed in in Britain has the dog detec* tive distinguished himself. It may not, however, be the fault of the - dog. The four-footed tracker is, in Britain, generally called on too late, is brought to a district it has no knowledge of, and is set upon a trail that numberless people have pasped over. A trained dog tracker would probably prove of enormous assist ance in ridding suburban districts of the burglars that periodically infest them. The last great crime in Bri tain in which a dog played a part in bringing a criminal to justice was the murder of a little girl at Blackburn. The girl having disappeared, suspic ion lighed on a hairdresser. The police took a dog to his premises, and the animal made a spring, and bark ing furiously up a chimney, it was searched, with the result that the child's body was found there.<...

DISCONTENTED WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
DISCONTENTED WOMEN. Discontented women are always ego tists. They never win confidence, for their discontent breeds distrust and doubt; however clever they may be. an obtrusive self, with its train of likings and dislikings, obscures their judgment, and they take false views of people and things. For this rea son it is almost a hopeless effort tf show them how little other people care about their grievances, for they have thought about themselves so long and so much that they cannot conceive of any other subject so generally interest ing to the rest of the world.
