LIVE STOCK Surplus of Sheep EFFECT OF RECENT RAIN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926
UVE STOCK Surplus of Sheep EFFECT OF RECENT RAIN | Tho rain during last week ensured a good spring and summer and the dis- trict should be looking smilingly .well during the next couple of months. There is still a dullness in the"shcop market owing to surplus numbers, but as the wool market is very solid and seasonal prospects so assured there is no inducement for vendors to accppt the ruling low prices for "off shears" lots. Woodgers' and Calthorpe report that the present ruling raies for forward delivery stock are: .Lambs at weaning .10/- to 12/15, with sales at 10/-; young, wethers ' 12/6 to 15/-, with sales at 12/0. Ewes from 10/- 'to 20/-, accord- ing to age and quality with sales of ii year old ewes for delivery at wean- ing Unie 10/ -to 12/0.

EVERYDAY TALKS Marvels of the Creation [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926
EVERYDAY TALKS -Marvels of the Creation No1 long ago there appeared in England and America a gentleman of Egyptian descent who, for a little) while,* astonished a large number of people, by performing what appeared to be miracles. He hypnotised rabbits, stuck- pins through his own cheeks without winc- ing, and stiffened himself so that his body could be placed like a bridge on two chairs, and a small boy could stand on It without causing it to sag. All these things appeared to be .so mysterious as to seem super-natural, It was difficult to believe that the man did not possess more than earthly powers. In order to further add to this im- pression, he announced that on a certain day he would allow himself to be* seal- ed up in a casket, and have the cask- et lowered under water, where it would remain for an hour. Something happened to that miracle, The electric bell ,the button of which was placed in the casket for emergency use, jingled violently just after tho water closed over the ...
PAPER INDUSTRY MANUFACTURE IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926
PAPER INDUSTRY MANUFACTURE IN AUSTRALIA. Investigations on paper pulp and cel- lulose which aro being carried out by the Council for Scientific and Indus- trial Research have elicited a number of economically important facts dur ng the last 12 months. The major problem under investiga- tion during the period was the pulp. ing of eucalyptus woods by ' flic sul- phite process. This question was first taken up in 1924 following the suc- cessful application of the soda process n a modified form to the pulping of "he eucalypts. It was then considered that, if the sulphite' process could be used, theie would be a strong possi- bility of making pulp cheaply enough to allow of its use in the manufacture of newsprint, of which about 100,000 tons a year was used in Australia at that time. After six months of Inves- tigation in 1924, the results were suf- ficiently encouraging to cause the Amalgamated Zinc Co. Ltd. to carry out a commercial test in Europe, for which purpose 100 tons of stringy...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS STAINS. ON LINEN. ' Stained linen needs special care In the treatment given for removing, for more than any other material, it is likely to rot and become 'discoloured as a re- sult of chemical action. Thus it is most Important that whatever t,he.agent used, it Is completely washed and rinsed out afterwards. 1 Table stains' such as tea, coffee, wine and fruit, sho.uld, aftor washing, be well rubbed with household ammonia onclttuen treated with hydrogen peroxide in- the proportion of one part to 100 parts,of water.' Rust, ironmould, and ink yield to salts of' lemon- rubbed lightly in with smooth stick of wood. The stain should .rest over ia .Vessel containing boiling waten* It may bo necessary to repeal the process, but finally thoroughly .soap ?ing&lt; and rinsing in ammonia water should be given.
