A GYROSCOPIC UNICYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 14 May 1915
A GYROSCOPIC UNICYCLE. The idea, of a single-wheeled vehicle is by uo means new, The novelty in this motor car lies not in the fact that it is a. one-wheeled vemcle, but that it is stabilised by a gyroscope. Tne ma chine has not been built, but the d-> sign has been offered by one of Jie ' roaders of tho Seieiititic American as suggestion to some enterprising inven tor. If the unicyclo is ever to prove a success, tho gyroscope would undoubt edly prove serviceable in giving the vehicle stability. The idea, is to buiid a large wheol with a track on its- per iphery, and luouut the ear insido the wheel in a frame provided with three rollers adapted U> run on the traoii. Tho motor is suwated in the bottom ol the ear, and drives tho Jhbttom roller by friction.

There was mourning in tlio gipsy's camp, where Bluebell cried her eyes out on a heap of straw, moil rning hi Jielgra via, where a girl with a white face.- and griet'-striefcon eyes, shut up her sorrow in her heart, like the Spar tan with his fox in his breast, and drooped like a Slower shut out from the sun.

Bass. A party of motorists had a thrilling experience the other day, driving to the Woolamai station with little time to spare to oatoh a train.

The momentum carried the machine on to the back oi the steer, the most surprised animal on the whole of Gippsland. With consummate nerve and dexterity, the driver "back peddled" in stantly into terra firma, and re sisting the request of his friends, who remarked " Let's do it again," landed them safely at the Woola mai station without further inci dent. The steer and the car were both none the worst for the en counter. Million Dollar Mystery, 2nd edition, Sunday next, Wontnaggi Theatre.*

ARCHIE'S CREEK v. FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 14 May 1915
ARCHIE'S CREEK v. FIRE BRI GADE. There was a fair attendance at Archie's Creek on Saturday last to witness the first match of the compe tition between the above teams, and although the visitors had a comfortable win over their opponents, the home team played a clean and unselfish game, and will undoubtedly do better on future occasions if favored with anything like good luck. The win was a creditable one when it is taken into consideration that the Fire Brigade was not by any means represented by their hest team. The play throughout was of an in teresting character, although perhaps it was only on rare occasions that bril liancy was shown, but a pleasing fea ture of the match was the entire absence of rough play or any other selfish or unappreciable infringements of the rules. When the final gong sounded.the scores were Fire Brigade, T^goals 17 behinds. Archie's Creek," 5 goals 8 behinds. Thus;it will-be seen that the kicking abilities of either team was not of a brilliant character...

R[?]ISONS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 14 May 1915
POISONS. In some households poisons and pois onous mixtures are not as carefully kept as tliey might be, hence- the cases of poisoning and death which occur through persons ncicdentally taking tlio wrong medicines. Where it is neces sary to keep poisons, &lt;!q 'lot trust only to the poison label, or tho colored label in which tho chemist sells tho poison. These are no use if .von go to the medicine cupboard in the dark. And .it is. thie reaching down a nicdi cine in the dark, when in a hurry, in which lies the danger. All poisons, even ones that arc merely deleterious in tlieir effects, and not destructive to life, should be treated a; spa.rntolv ns possible from other modioinrs. Always keep these in a medicine cupboard by themselves, and tck the door securely, j If the ordinary medicine cupboard is merely fastened and not locked. the I fact of having to unlock tiio door will | at onco arrest attention, and prevent r. mistake. Unfortunately, children are too fono of tasting...
BACTERIA AND LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 14 May 1915
BACTERIA AND LIFE. j In tile course of an address given by j Professor Kmil "Westgaard More tiie ' Koyal Scottish Socicty of Arts on "The Influence of Bacteria on Life." the speaker pointed out that the name ot "bacteria" was, in the minds of most people, associated with :i feeling &lt;>r danger, or at least, of something un pleasant, owing to the fact that these minute organisms were lvsponsible lor many of the most dreaded diseases, and ?not infrequently attacked and destroyed their foodstuffs. Bacteria had, liow erer, other and far greater functions to carry out, and by decomposing and ul timately oxidising organic matter, ther olearetl these dead substances away, and converted them into simple inorganic products, which might bo used again by plants. In this manner the c-arbor and uit;ogen circulation was complete and the bacteria wero thus responsible for what wns the foundation of .the world's food supply.
