THE ENGINE WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930
THE ENGINE WHISTLE. *? How many people have ever] - fought of the origin of the locomo-i tive whistle, or who invented it ? Itj was brought into use through an* 'accident on an English railway sta-| tion 100 years ago. When the - - Stockton and Darlington railway was ''?opened for traffic a man on horseback preceded the 'Locomotive No. 1,' one - of Stephenson's early locomotives, to warn people of its approach. But Stephenson's engine attained the -?-' hitherto unheard-of-speed of 15 miles - 'an hour and ordered the horseman j - off the track. i The first serious crossing accident i '??on the road followed on September' 15, 1830 when Mr. William Hus-' ' kisson, a Cabinet Minister, was killed.' ' Another accident occurred on May ? : 4, 1833, when a train collided with - farmer's.. waggon containing 501bs butter and. 80 dozen eggs, on a' crossing between Thori.ton and Bags- ? worth, England. :

LAKING THE TEMPERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930
'TAKING THE TEMPERATURE. It is cangercus fcr baby, wh?n mother tests the heat cf baby's bottle by nutting it in hcr^'.' own mouth. When the bottle is read5^, mother* y should just press a drop cr two out of the teat''- on t' her own wrist. If th» vei' on h».r w-ut can bear the heat just n'ceiy, then it is the right temperature for baty SOFT SAFETY STRAPS.

SOME AMAZING FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930
SOME AMAZING FACTS. Dr. Ronald Camipbell Macfie, in his recently delivered Thomson Lectures, made many interesting statements. According to report Dr. Macfie said: 'All the teeming life of our globe — all its forests and meadows and gardens, all its myriads of fishes, birds, and beasts, is in material bulk so small that it might all be buried in the Pacific Ocean without alpprer ciably raising the sea level; while if it were all made up into a ball and flung into the crater of a sunspot it would be licked up like a speck of dust- in a roaring furnace. 'I, who stand before you now, clothed in flesh and cloth — I, who look fairly solid — am really a hol low ghost, for though according to physics I consist of quadrillions nad quadrillions and quadrillions of inr visible, infinitesimal particles, yet they are so small in themselves that I am actually emptier than a yacuum tube. If some terrific grasp were to 'squeeze the particles together as they have been squeezed together in some ^ d...

ST. PATRICK'S HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930
ST. PATRICK'S HANDICAP. I Pat Slattery and Kirrkie have I proved a very formidable combina-j tion during the last few weeks. Theyj have won a number of races, both in; the country and on metropolitan courses. Slat'ery knows this horse and on Saturday, when hard pressed i in the straight, Slattery had to bring, his whip into action and ride his1 horse hard, but over the last fur-1 long he had the measure of Special Call and won decisively. | ; Kirrkie followed up his sequence jof successes by taking the St. Pat ricks Handicap. He was well back in the field early, but ran into a I prominent position going along the, oack and had the leaders well cov ered before the straight was entered. In the run home, Slattery again pre vailed and won nicely. i Special Call again ran consistently. She was never far away from the :eaders and fought out the issue with determination. 1 Bachelor Green was in the leading division all the way, and hung- on well to take third money. j Bowshot, which was la...

I COVE HANDICAP. Green Baize, which was previously 1 raced by the late Dr. Benne/:, was :-it one time expected to turn out 1 top-iio! -„h ::printc-r, but she nev»r realised expectations, and was a dis- i appointment to the doctor. On Sat urday she showed a great 'turn of [ speed in the Cove Handicap; audj ran the five furlongs in 59£ seconds.] Green Baize is now raced and trained] by G. Stanmore. 1 Green Baize caused surprise by' taking the Cove Handicap. She was, five horses back early, but coming' to the home turn ran up close1 be hind the leader (Lakhnao) and easily defeated him in the run home. 1 Lakhnao did all the pacing, but the winner was too good, for him, and he had to take second place. j Steel Guitar was back in the middle | of the field early, but came home well and filled third place. j Miss Two caused surprise by beat-!, ing all but the place-getters. She ! was well placed throughout. Drift : On was another outsider th$t di^ well to finish close up. Mistone wry in com...

LUCK OF THE GAME. LOW-PRICED YEARLINGS SUCCESSFUL. BIG PRIZES TEMPT BIG BUYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930
LUCK OF THE GAME. LOW-PRICED YEARLINGS SUCCESSFUL. BIG PRIZES TEMPT BIG BUYERS. 1 1 1 That tiie marked increase In added money for the A.J.C. and Victoria Derbies had an effect upon yearling prices is a fair conclusion to come to. With the certainty of over £6,000 from one race, buyers can afford to tro higher than when the A.J.C. Derby stake was considerably less. , Unfortunately, few enterprising buyers have received the rewaird they deserved. The luck has princi pally been with breeders racing their own horses, or those ' buyers who lave given, comparatively low prices for yearlings. After remaining at £5,000 for a [few years, the A.J.C. Derby jumped !t.o £6,000 in 1921, and Mr. G. D. [Greenwood won with Cupidon, fori whom he gave 525 guineas , in New Zealand as a yearling. Furious, bred by her owner. Mr. E- E. D. Clarke, was second, and she, to some extent, atoned for her defeat bv winning the Victoria Derby and V.R.C. St. Leger. , In 1922 the A.J.C. Derby was in-j creased to £7...
