AS A[?]TIC TRASECT [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914
The story of the discovery of the last relics of Sir John Franklin and his companions, who perished amid the Arctic snows, is familiar to every Englishman. An equally poignant tale of Polar adventure and heroism is told by a scrap of paper piously preserved in tho Royal Library at Copenhagen. It was discovered in 1008 in a cavern among the wild and inhospitable wastes of "Lambert's Land." Three Danes—Hagen, Erichsen, and Broenlnnd—left Greenland in 1907 and pushed Northwards, unaccom panied by natives. They went too far, and exhausted their provisions, etc., ere their homeward march was terminated. Their tent had rotted, their fur " sleeping-sacks" were full of holes, their boots worn out ; briefly, they were at the mercy, of the relentless cold. Hagen died first, Erichsen ten days later, and Broenland was left in awful solitude amidst the per petual darkness of an Arctic win ter. Starved and exhausted, both feet frostbitten, he yet crawled some miles southward, and then dug liis gr...

Gla; hen «ws« Clothes now W&fn. '.T CLEANED AT HOME IN»THE FIRE. It has remained for the twentieth century to show us the advantages of garments made of minerals. In credible as it may seem, stone, iron, and oven glass, are now being manu factured into clothes. The latest no.veltv in women's dresses is repre sented by robes of spun glass. The cloth comes in shades of white, green, lilac, pink and yellow. The inventor is an Australian, and the goods are as bright and flexible as silk. The first lady to wear a glass riresr, was of royal rank. It was of a delicate shade of lavender shot with pink, and its peculiar sheen re minded observers of the sparkle of diamond dust. The Russians are manufacturing a fabric from the fibre of a filamen tous stone from the .Siberian mines which is said to be of so durable a nature that it is practically inde structible. The material is soft to tho touch and pliable in the ex treme, and when soiled has only to he placed in a fire to be made ab ...

Scientific Puzzles. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914
Scientific Puzzles. 7 Everyone knows that the diamond is only charcoal crystalized; but there are' a great many other things in Nature that, though possessing widely different properties, are com posed of exactly, equal quantities of the same elements. The white of an egg and rattle • snake poison are formed of Identi cally, the same amounts of the same elements. The oil of roses and common coal gas are each formed alike, both be ing composed of four atoms of hy drogen and four atoms of corbon. Sugar and gum arabic are like wise brothers of the same weight and texture. All the hydrocarbons, known to science as a combination of six teen atoms of hydrogen and ten atoms of carbon, are alike in their composition. To enumerate some : Oil of orange, lemon, cloves, ginger, and black pepper. The suggested explanation of these peculiarities is that the atoms are placed differently toward one an other in the molecules of the differ ent substances. Other tilings just as peculiar are evident wh...

PUNISHED BY KAISER MILITARY DESPOTS LOSE POSTS [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 February 1914
PUNISHED BY KAISER MILITARY DESPOTS LOSE POSTS The Kaiser to-day had a long con ference at Donaueschingen with the Minister of War and the chief of his military cabinet, at which it is stated (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Express," December 2\ that the Emperor did some extremely plain talking about the events at Zabern, in Alsace, where the popu lation is in revolt against the ex cesses of the Prussian garrison. The trouble began, as has been told in "The Express," with an offer by Lieutenant von Foerstner, of the 99th Regiment, of 10/ for every "Alsatian vagabond" bayoneted by a sentry. This was resented by the peo ple of Zabern, and a series of inci dents followed, culminating oil Fri day last in an outbreak by the mili tary and the arrest of twenty-six citi zens. Complaints of brutal treatment by tlie soldiers were made by the pri I soners, many of whom were citizens of standing. [ A number of German newspapers I to-night state that the Kaiser has ordered drastic p...

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 February 1914
FACT ABOUT MISTI/ETOF, A singular Uilny cuncemiiiy mistlO toe, called attention to by "The Gar den," is that, although it occurs on a wide range of trees and is so very common on the apple, yet it is never found on the pear. Some attempts to grow mistletoes on pear trees were made last year in Messrs James Veitcli and Sons' nursery at Lang-ley, and the results were so remarkable that the subject has since been brought before the scientific committee of the Royal Horticultural Society. Mistletoe seed ivas sown on a number of pear trees, and in many instances germination took place. In no case, however, did the mistletoe get beyond the stage of germination, and no leaves wpre de vciopoa. Tho nfCec* the pear was very noticeable, for the mistletoe, in its attempt to establish itself, killed all the tissue of the tree-stem just within the bark, completely encirc ling the stem. All growth was killed aboVe the point where the mistletoe had germinated.
