MOUNT STIBNITE MINING COMPANY, COIMADAI. IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS. The results of a portion of the first series of divisioaal bulk tests of the lodes exposed in the underground workings have just been made avail able by the Board, through the cour tesy of Mr. Thurston Evans, the Managing ..-Director. In a note ac companying these results, stress is laid on the fact that amplification of the method under which these figures were obtained is necessary before finality may be said to have been reached. In other words bulk sampling can only be carried out with absolute confidence in the -sub sequent .results, when the whole four sides of. a square or block is pre sented to- the sampler's inspection for obtaining the necessary parcels for laboratory analyses. Three sides may convey an accurate return under certain conditions but when only two are available .modification of the figures may be necessary when the third is finally submitted to the As sayer's hands. In the results, furn ished by...

CHAPTER XLVII.-Continued. And Geoffrey refused to say more. As a matter of fact, nobody seemed to" care to hear anything further.. They were worn out with anxiety and exer tion. They had had little food that day; the wearhhours on. the' beach had exhausted them. "For the present we can rest and be thankful," Ravenspur said as he rose to go. "We can sleep with easy minds to-night." They moved off after him, all but Geoffrey and Vera. Mrs. Gordon could still be heard moving about one of the drawing-rooms. Marion had slip ped off unobserved. She hardly felt equal to bidding Geoffrey good-night. The tender smile was still on her face as she crept upstairs. Then when she reached her room it faded away. She flung herself across the bed and burst into a passionate fit of weeping. And then gradually she sobbed...

HOTELS, AND COUNCIL REVENUE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 July 1915

HOTELS, AND COUNCIL REV ENUE. ) To the Editor of the Express. Do the people in the Werribee Shire, as a whole, want to protest against the restriction just put on the hotels? I don't believe it. At any rate, I am sure they have never instructed the Councillors to send in a protest. Cr. Maher and Cr. Beasley can, of course, hold their own opinions, but they have no right to speak for the ratepayers on this matter. There are many rate-' payers who, like myself, would be glad to see the hotels further re stricted. Here we are, sending our young men away to fight an enemy, and Mr. Lloyd George says that drink is the biggest obstacle we have, and Lord Haldane says our shortage of munitions is principally due to drink. Is the nation to be imperilled so that the hotels can thrive? Russia and France have turned the thing down altogether. But if we dare to shorten the hours, even, there is a howl, and Shire Councillors begin to whine about falling revenue. It will be time enough for them to ...

MOTOR PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 July 1915

MOTOR PLOUGH. A motor plough, which was ex hibited at the Royal Agricultural Society's Show at Shrewsbury (Eng land), and which attracted much at tention there, has since been im proved in several important aspects. As originally designed, the plough man walked behind the plough in order to guide it; but now he rides on it. Guiding is effected by the provision that is made for allowing either of the road wheels to overrun the other. On reaching the end of a furrow, gear is engaged that lifts the ploughs from the furrows with out stopping the machine. One of the road wheels is then driven, and the plough swings round as on a pivot. The depth of cut is between 6in. and 7in., and the consumption of petrol two gallons per acre. When working on the low gear in heavy land it will probably average from 21 to three acres per day of eight hours. On light land, when the higher gear can be used, the output will be correspondingly larger.. The motive power is supplied by a sin gle-cylinder petr...
