FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 March 1914
FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. Some of us (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 7) remember Mr Walter Passmoro's exultant exclama tion In "The Earl and the Girl"—"It ain't the coat wot makes tho man; why, demme, it'a tho trousers." So, evi dently, think certain sartorial experts In America, when they suggest, as we are told, that fashion is about to pro scribe to the "nuts" on the other side, nether garments that shall be "slashed'-' or "slit," Just as women's skirts are, according to the prevailing vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up—as it wore—endless pos sibilities, even to tho average male mind. Wo seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more elaborately embroidered than they arc now in Dudeland. Also do there seem to loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bejewelled shoe-strings, and dainty garters—with, perhaps, a bit of airy frilling thrown in. For, once you open the floodgates of fashion at the trousers seams from the knee d...

But locomotion on terra flrma is still found In the foremost place, over 2000 applications having been filed for patents relating to rail ways and motor and other road vehi cles. More than one fortune has been built upon a simple idea—boot protectors are a case In point. .There arc no indica tions that the simple inventions of 1913 will produce a golden harvest, but there aro many of great interest.

A Friend Advised Her. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 March 1914
A Frfend Advised Her. The following letter from Mrs. Tho mas L'rowii, of Healesville Vic., will prove interesting to many of our readers:— "Some time ago I Buffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The first symptoms were great weak ness and emaciation with terrible Pain all over my body, especially across my back. .My 'Whole body was racked with pain and I could get but little case day or night. Medicines were prescribed for mo, but failed to do me any good. I cared very little what became of me, I was so weak and miserable.

I continued to take the medicine, getting stronger ind 'better every day. I 6oon regain ed my former strength and energy, the pains all left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy." "Warner's Safe Cure Is a wonderful remedy In cases of ki...

AEROPLANE ON ROOF [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 March 1914
AEROPLANE ON ROOF Paris has got over being surprised at the sight of Hying machines (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), but the population of Javel, a working quarter between the Eiffel Tower and the aerodrome of Issy-les-Moulineuax, got excited last week when they saw an aeroplane plunge downwards' over the streets and finally crash on to the roof- of a factory in the Rue Saint Charles. There was a rush to the fac tory, for it was feared that the accident was serious, but the crowd were met by the aviator, M. Gilbert, who, quit© eaJm, and without a scratch, was de scending the stairs, which he had reached through the hole made in the roof by the falling aeroplane. M. Gilbert said his engine had failed. He looked about for a landing-place, but could see nothing but houses, factories, and market garden plots. The broad road would have served his purpose, but there were a number of children scattered along it. staring in wonder at the aeroplane so close above them. As a last r...

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 March 1914
NEW YEAR'S DAY CTJSTOMfl | It Is surprising how many quaint customs and bollofs concerning Now New Year's Day still survive in out of-tho*wny places (says "Tho Westmln Btcr Gazotto"). Ono ot tho oldest cus toms, which originated In ancient Rome. Is tho giving of presents. This custom Uourished at the English Court until tho seventeenth century, and stlH exists In Scotland. A strango belief In some parts of the country Is that no washing must bo dono on Now Year's Dav for fear of washing somo mombor of the family out of existence during tho ensuing year. From Cornwall comos a r.uporatititlon which tells how to ensuro a plentiful supply of money. On New Year's Eve a coin is placed outsido iupon the window-sill and must not be | taken in until tho Now Year; monoy I will then continue to como In all the year. (It is not advlsablo to put your Ivoin on tho sill of a ground-floor win dow, or money may go out Instead of coming In!) I
SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 March 1914
SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER. Mr Orvllle Wright's prediction about the popularity and cheapness of aero planing as a national pastime in 1914 (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph") is endorsed by many people here, who believe that a really efficient "stabiliser" will shortly be placed on the market. The Ameri can Inventor's device, so successfully tested at Dayton, Ohio, as described al ready in "The Dally Telegraph," con sists of a compensating appliance at tached to the steering post, which, when the machine suddenly dips or swerves, automatically tips the wings nnd rudder to the proper positions. Mr Wright mado seven circles without touching any of the controlling levers. Several times the craft appeared to be diving, but on cach occasion righted it self automatically. The flights were mado on the fifth anniversary of the winning of the Michelln trophy by Wilbur Wright, In France. To-day a daily aeroplane passenger service wns . inaugurated between Tampa, ...
