Economic Benefits! of Motive Power, Sir William Lever who visited Australia recently, said it seemed a pit}' that men should he doing what he termed " Donkey work," instead of seeking the aid pf machinery to lighten their labours. Motive power is the " breath of life " to most indus tries ; without it many industries would languish and die. There is no senee in unnecessarily doing by hand that which can be done more quickly, and generally more effectively, by the aid of machinery.

In the country districts we have known people to turn a cream separa tor for hours at a time, also to be in the milking sheds.nearly all the day.

An oil engine, or a steam engine and boiler are absolutely neces sary to the comfort and posperity of all who are engaged in agricultural, dairying, und mining p...
