i FRUITFUL FRUIT FARMS | AT BATLOW. | Realising the price, and demand for fruit, it certainly offers a big future profit for the fruitgrower, and those who are entering into the matter seriously, first of all want to know, where is The Most Suitable Land. This can be answered — in Batlow — as no area ' is more suitable for fruit growing. In fact, it can offer everything but the labor. Areas from 12 to 55 acres can be obtained on easy terms of 10 per cent, deposit, balance by nine equal annual instalments, the first to be paid two years after date of contract. Fertile Ferodale Farms Situated in the Lower Hunter District com prise a large tract of drained swamp land, which is just ideal for agricultural, orchard and dairying purposes. The success of the farmer is assured. The rainfall is excellent. Close to butter factory and railway.

A Cricket Comedy. BUILDERS AND ARCHITECTS TAKE A DAY OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 6 April 1914

A Cricket Comedy. BUILDERS AND ARCHITECTS TAKE A DAY OFF. 'Look here,' said the Editor, with unusual severity, to the member of the staff commissioned to frame up a report of the coinic cricket match between the architects and master- builders of Sydney. 'Look here,' he .repeated, as if indicating a libel that had slipped through — as libels somehow sometimes will — 'our good pals, the architects and builders, are taking a day off on the excuse of play ing cricket. 'Don't fire in any fancy stuff about the gold rimmed sun, the velvet sward, and don't say that Facts will do us. 'So, young man, be careful. Keep your eyes skinned for the Joneses and the Smiths and the Browns and the Whites. Look out you don't con fuse Smith, of the Builders, with Smythe, of the Architects, and don't credit the 'duck' of Brown to Browne — that is, if there be Smiths, Smythes, Browns, Brownes and 'ducks' ; the latter in the cricket sense, of course, in view of the mixed gathering.

ORGANISATION & CO-OPERATION The Moral of the P.L.L. Conference. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 6 April 1914

ORGANISATION & CO-OPERATION . The Moral of the P.L.L. Conference. The recent Labor conference might have done much that appeared absurd in the eyes of employers and common sense people generally. Many, no doubt, are ' prepared to declare it, with the Premier, . 'a vent pipe for the paid officers of the . Movement.' But neither of those opinions can take fmm thp snienrlid examole of organisa tion and co-operation it gave, nor mini mise the striking contrast it set in relation to the disorganisation of employing ?interests. The conference's declaration that it controlled Parliament — that it was the real mouthpiece of legislation, might be .- . discounted, as indeed, it has been. But. ' there is no disguising the equally import '-' ' .' -ant fact that it controls the vital spark of our. industries — the labor market. . . ' ?'?? ..???'.

LONDON'S ELECTRICAL ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 6 April 1914

LONDON'S ELECTRICAL ENERGY. In an address before the Society of Arts, Mr. Frank Bailey, M.Inst.C.E., de scribed the extent of the electric supply of London. The estimated capital expended by the fourteen boroughs which worked their own provisional orders was £6, 602,055, and they sold 1 14J million units last year. The amount expended by the thir teen companies engaged in supply was ;£ 1 4, 6 1 3, 1 96, and last year these sold about \J/\ million units. The Greenwich power-house, erected by the London County Council, contained many of the best features of the com bined experience of other countries, and supplied nearly the whole of the tram way system. The total amount of electrical energy for all purposes for the year 191 2 might .be estimated as follows: — Railways, 271,500,000 units; tramways, 180,000, 000; and general supply, 277,800,000. One effect of the great improvements in steam generating plant was that the 257 million units sold in 191 I, together .with the units expended...

"HOW WE HAVE WORKED." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 6 April 1914

'HOW WE HAVE WORKED.' I 'resident Walter Reeks, of the N.S.W. Engineer ing Association, opened his recent address in sparkling fashion. He said: — 'Already I begin to appreciate the privileges a piosident enjoys in reading an address, as compared with the member who rca'd's a paper'. ' If -this were .1 paper, I feel sure I should sec notes being made in lire back at me in the course of discussion. You would, perhaps, be inclined to just the opposite opinion, and say that the preparation of an address was hard work, and that it can scarcely be work and play at the same time. Well, rather than argue the point, I will admit that, in the words of the old Grace at meat : 'For what we are about to receive, the Lord knows we have worked hard enough.' ' ? ♦ ?

NEAR ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 6 April 1914

? w NEAR ENOUGH. There is a tendency at the present day to slur over things, and say, 'Oh! That's near enough,' instead of endeavouring to produce the best pos sible result at the expenditure of a trifling addition of time or energy (says the 'Sanitary Record and Municipal Engineering''). In talcing off the quantities for one-and-a-half brick walls in a large contract, the 'dimension of ill 1 cl'npcc \irfic f?i1t*r»n ?i c lil.in incfr»'ii-1 nf 15^-lin TMiic small . and apparently insignificant difference, which was considered near enough, resulted in a total quantity of 14 rods being improperly added to the contract, which, at £16 per rod, was a money value of £2'1, with nothing to show for it. In another case a builder was asked to accept bricks j-in. thinner than the standard, as being near enough, but his reply was, 'It would take a mil lion more bricks to carry out the contract.' It is possible to get steel plates of a nominal thickness, rolled full' or bare in thickness, the fo...

FROM DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 6 April 1914

FROM DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS. President Walter Reeks, . in the course of his presidential address to the N.S.W. Engineering' Association, told a good story as follows: — 'Some of us here are, as we say, 'In the Trade.' Some of us are consulting men; some, of us design only; and some of us do some of all those things. Consequently scarcely two of us take precisely the same view of the things and doings round about us. ''As an example of that, on one occasion I was chatting with a friend who sold 'Machines of Kinds' to his very considerable financial benefit, and dis cussing some matters of recent improvements, 1 said, 'Yes, old man, but you must pay for brains.' He said, 'Whose brains?' 1 said. 'Why, the man who invents and perfects the improvement, of course.' 'Oh,' he answered, 'those are cheap. I thought you meant those of the salesman'! ''So one sees that the point of view taken makes all the .difference, and if one could only sec as 'God of All/ to quote a line from Pope, one would...
