ORBOST POLICE AND LOCKUP [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 April 1914
ORBOST POLICE AND LOCKUP For some time past the inadcquacy of the lock-up accommodation at Orbost has been adversely commented on. There is only one cell which might be made to hold two men if they were either well behaved or helplessly druok, but if Constable Simpson had a violent pri soner or a female to deal with he would be hard put to it to stow any .others away. On representations being made some time ago the Chief Commissioner of Police said he did not see that the requirements of the place warranted any further expenditure, which was an aR tonishing statement to make. The Government had then spent a consider able sum of money in erecting a new police station and it would only have caused a trifling addition to the outlay to erect a couple more cells. As it is now the police are not able to properly carry out the prison conditions, they have to abstain from making arrests and the magistrates at times are not able to deal with prisoners in the way they think most advisable for...

NUT BUTTER. Tho increasing popularity of butter made fro'n vegetable oil is a matter of serious interest to colonials, who have built up a hugo butter trade. Some ten years ago (says the "Standard"), attempts were made to introduco vege table oils in the manulfacture of mar garine, only ,ninal ifats having been previously employed. S:noe then great advances have been inade, and in the nlmanufactl? r e of mliargariue chllemistry Ihas achieved one of its triumphs. T'o day nuti butter is one of the staple articles of food for tli ma sses. At first cocoanut oil only was used in its manl i 'Oture, bIut miany olther substances are now employed, such as ground nut oil, ;, p-aii I: i e' l l,;. o miake all these oils a pericel basis, they are treated with a lighit alkaline solution, which absorbs all free fatty acids in them, making the oil neutral.
