A SIMPLE APPARATUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
A SIMPLE APPARATUS. There are(- ousands of amateurs who use the^ ^nera for the purpose of recording impressions of holidays and for immortalising the members of their families ; and there are other thousands who would join, the noble army were it not for the fact that they believe photography ot be sur rounded by all sorts of difficulties and mysteries. My conclusion is, says John Kinsman in 'Photo- graphy,' that 'photography with out trouble may be attained by tak ing advantage of — (1) A compact camera, which will not be a burden to the walker or cyc list; (2) An exposure meter, carefully used ; (3) A developing tank; (4) A photographic thermometer for faking the temperature of the developer ; (5) A developer (such as Azol or the Watkins), for which the times of development have be$n worked out ; (6) A simple enlarger ; . And the cost involved is not at all prohibitive; in fact, compared with the cost of other hobbies, it is small. My own expenditure may be a guide to others, alth...
The Comora TO TOURISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
--~-— fllkA^-ilfrmi^y.fl TO TOURISTS. When a fixing-bath is unobtain able, the following will be found a good plan of treating plates : — Place the developed plate for a few minutes in an alcoholic solution of cadmium bromide, made by dis solving one ounce of cadmium bro mide in one pint of alcohol. The developed plate is not only protect ed from any influence of actinic light, but the water in the film be comes absorbed by the alcohol, and the plate dries very quickly. In very hot weather, particularly when touring abroad and in warmer coun tries than our own, it is advisable to add sixty drops of formalin to the above bath. Plates so dried may be safely; exposed to a strong light without any. injury, and fixed and washed on the return home or at one's convenience.

AT THE OPERA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
AT THE OPERA. I 'Well, did you enjoy your evening, my dear?' 'Indeed I did, John. I went to the opera.' 'Oh, what did you hear?' 'Rather, what didn't I hear! I heard that Ruth Jackson is engaged to Tom Harris — the one who got drunk' at the hockey ball last year. And that Jack Courtney and Edith Pas coe have quarrelled, and are not going to be married after all. Then I .heard that the Singletons have a baby, and Mrs. Singleton wants it called Peter Garibaldi, after her mother's stepfath er, but Mr. Singleton wants it called Primus, because it's the first. Then I' heard that Baron von Schmelt is not a Baron at all, and that the John sons ? ' ?'But ? ' 'Don't interrupt. I thought you wanted to know what I heard r ' 'So I did, but—' 'Keep quiet then. Well, .1 also heard — ' 'What I meant was, what opera did you hear?' 'Oh, I don't remember; I saw the name on the programme!'
HE DID HIS BEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
HE DID HIS BEST. Mr. Raymond appeared at his neigh bour's door one November evening at dusk in a towering rage, and uttering fierce threats against his neighbour's dog, Nero. Vainly the neighbour tried to explain that Nero was only a pup py. 'He belongs to Johnny,' he went on, 'and it would break John ny's heart if anything happened to him. I think' — Hopefully — 'that his manners will improve.' 'Manners!' repeated Raymond. 'I'm not com plaining about his manners but his nature. After he had jumped all ov er me, he bit the back of my leg.' 'That's as far as he can reach,' broke in Johnny, in a wounded tone. 'You don't expect a' little pup like him to rbitt^a^biir-in^njike you on the neck, Companion^ — t~-—q~''-~m~-— '?»- ? ,.» ..
"YOU NEVER CAN TELL." [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
'YOU NEVER CAN TELL.' They were youthful enthusiasts in physiognomy. On the seat opposite in the train was a man of command ing figure, massive brow, and serious expression. 'Splendid face!' one of them exclaimed. 'What do you sup pose his life work has been?' 'A lawyer?' suggested the other. 'No-o ; there's too much benevol ence in that face for a lawyer.' 'Maybe a banker?' 'Oh, nor A man with- an expres sion like that couldn't have spent his life in merely turning over money: — ' 'He might be an editor — ' ' 'An editor! Cutting and slashing .*? his enemies at every turn, and even his friends occasionally for the sake, of a smart paragraph ? You can't read faces. That man's a philantroph'ist; or engaged in some sort of public spirited work.' Why, there isn't a. line that doesn't indicate strength of purpose and nobility. Look at that curve there on the left!' At the next station an old country man took his seat beside the man with massive brow; and entered into a con versation with...
URANQUINTY. Sensitive Councillors. Uranquinty Residents Express Their Views. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
URANQUINTY. Sensitive Councillors. Uranqumty Residents Express Their Views The following conespondence ap- | peared in the ' Daily Advertiser ': — At the recent meeting of the Mitchell Shira the refioi-fc appeared in your paper of a letter from tlie secretary of Uranquinty F. and S. Association, termed ''disrespectful.' The letter referred to was one asking them to take steps in haviurr the weed known as Patterson's Curse proclaimed a noxicm.j jKf^i.ciuaWrg lor'pubHcation, to place before the ratepayers to see whether 'they term it disrespectful, or otheiwisp. I may stale that other communications re ceived trom the Uranquinty F. and S. Association, i eceived but very little consideration at the hands of the Mitchell Shire Council, hence the concluding lines in the so-called disrespectful 'letter:— 'To Clerk of Mitchell Shire Council. Dear Sir,— On behalf of Uranquinty Branch of ! Farmers and Settlers' Association I wvite to vou with reference to having the weed known as Patterson's...
Mitchell's Shire Council's High Horse. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
Mitchell's Shire Council's High Horse. Tiik last Mitchell Shire Council got; on a high horse over a letter from ' the Uraii(.|uiuty Fanners' Association which we publish in another part of this issue. Will .the Councillors be able to gel; down from their high burse or will they want lifting downy Like many another epistle tho si ing j seems to have been in the tail—; ' treat not this lequest the sains us \ others have been treated.' This | seems to have hurt the Councillors j very much, lint was it the Council- j lors who were hurt or was it an | officer of the Council. We would i not dream of saying it regarding Mitchell Shire, but some .shire clei ks iue very sensitive creatures and ou-n- ] 'ionnlly they persuade Councillors to j take strange action to right ineii'| im.igimu'y grievances. In this inst ance, the Council treated an import ant communication from the nite payers with contempt. They did not even go to ihe trouble to lind out whether the alleged offmisiveness in t.lie l...

ELECTRIC LIGHT ON MOTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
ELECTRIC LIGHT ON MOTORS. One of the greatest additions to the pleasure of night motoring is an improved electric lighting sys tem recently perfected. By means of it a greatly increased efficiency for all the lights of the car is secur ed, as well as a much safer and more convenient system than has heretofore been emploved. The system in question consists of a small inultipolar generator having a positive drive from the engine, and is contained under the ^same hood. Beside this, a device known as a load regulator and a small stor age battery are required. ' The gen erator, which runs upon ballbear ings, and weighs but twenty-four pounds, is capable of producing the required current, even on a slow, speed of the engine, to light all: the regular equipment of lamps. It al so furnishes the ignition spark for the engine. If running at a high speed or when the engine is being operated free of the machine, the load regulator comes into play, di verting the excess 'current generat ed into ...
SLEEPING SICKNESS TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
SLEEPING Sic.NESS TERMS. At the French Academy of Medi cine a remarkably interesting cine matograph display has been given which actually enabled the medical men present to observe on the screen the tragic history of the in1 vasion of the blood by harmful germs and their ultimate absorption by the defending leucocytes. To make the display impressive to the highest degree the exhibitors show ed 'living pictures' of the germs of 'sleeping sickness,' that awful scourge of Africa, which has been the object of such anxious investi gations during recent years. Sev eral sets of films enlarged to an al most incredible extent were display ed. The first of these showed the invading germs in full activity, con temptuously regardless of the pre sence of the white corpuscles, which were powerless to harm them. Then, after the employment of the appro priate serum the leucoevtes were seen to have regained their defen sive powers. The disease germs were asjively as ever, but as soon as they came in...
DIRECTIVE WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
DIRECTIVE WIRELESS TELE GRAPHY. The advantages of wireless tele graphy for vessels in distress have been fully demonstrated during the last few years ; but, although in valuable for summoning assistance after an accident has occurred, the ordinary system is 01 little use ior indicating the approach of danger. This disability has lately been over come by the Bellini-Toti wireless compass equipment, which gives the direction from which signals are be ing received. At present two vessels may be communicating wjth each other by 'wireless' in a fog without either of them knowing the other's relative position ; hence no steps can be tak en to avoid a collision. With the direction system each vessel will know in which direction the other is situated, and can steer a safe course accordingly. Another advan' tage of the new method is that, once the required signals have been picked up, the direct equipment shuts out stray messages from other directions, thus avoiding interrup tion. The new wi...
FOR THE GARDENER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
FOR THE GARDENER. Scattered fruit on a tree is diffi cult to pick by climbing a ladder. If the fruit is shaken off the fall will cause bruises that make it unfit for storage or shipping. A picker has beer- devised to remove the fruit growing on the ends of bran^ ches and in nlaces not easily acces sible. The device consists of a long handle to which is attached a board having pegs gin long fasten ed ina circle, and set so that.. their ends incline towarcls the centre. The stem will slip through between the pegs, and the fruit can be easily pulled off and retained by the pegs.
TRUTH AND FREEDOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
TRUTH AND FREEDOM. We must stoutly contend for the freedom of thought, but must re member that thought is only free when true. The ship is master of the 'waves only when it obeys the rudder. The locomotive is free only when guided by the rails. Music and science have their laws and must be obedient to them. There is no true liberty but the liberty whose action is determined by law. Even the most original thinker must 'think God's thoughts after Him.' The secrecy' and independence of thought should be sacredly guarded, but truth must be its law and righte ousness it* end.jj -Douijt of any sort cannot be re moved except by action.— Carlyle.
A PASSENGER-CARRYING MONOPLANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
A PASSENGER-CARRYING ? , MONOPLANE. A monoplane in which four peo ple . will be able to fly through the air is now being built. In its tech nical details the machine will be an elaboration of the wonderful two seated Bleriot monoplane. It will represent many notable steps for ward in the march of progress ;? it will, indeed, open up the area of the passenger-carrying aeroplanes. The four seats in the 'air-car' will be comfortably padded. They will be arranged in pairs. The, driver of the monoplane will be seated in one of the first two. One of the three passengers will be upon his left hand. The other two passeng ers will be seated behind the driver, as thbdgiiin the-tonneau, of. a rnotor-^ car. The car in which the four aer ial travellers will be accommodated is to be su.ik in the body of the monoplane. They will enter it from below. Through its weight and power the four-seated monoplane will be extraordinarily steady when meeting contrary wind gusts. It will be practically vibrati...
