Methods of Construction. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911

. -Methods of Construction. Tlio offtake works at Bcrembed have been constructed by tlio Department under day labour, tlio reason for the selection of this method being the risks involved in dealing with flood waters, and upon which contractors would liava hud to gamble. Half the width of tlio river bed was enclosed by a coffer dam, and tho flow of the river passed through the other half while the works within tho coffer dam were under construction. Upon completion of tho work within tho coffer dam, the other half was then dealt with in the saino manner. Tlio Department has been exception ally fortunate duriug the period that tlio works in the river bed liavo been under construction, as those three seasons occupied represented three of tho lowest flows on record in the Mur rnmbidgeo Uiver. The whole of the earthwork excava tion has been carried out by contract, tlio bulk of it by means of plough and scoop.

THE PURCHASE OF A MOTOR CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911

THE PURCHASE OF A MOTOR CAR. There" is an absurd idea amongst country people that tlioso motor cars which gain so much favour- ill tho city aro quite unsuitablo for uso iu tlio country. ! , - This idea is quite ail. orror, as tho city man always gots a car for touriyg in tlio country.

A special fea ture of this make of car is tho addition of a special colonial model which has a good grouiid ciearanco, and the axles, springs, wheels, and brakcB have been specially strengthened.
