The deputation which waited on Gen eral Booth on January 11 demanding his resignation has reported to the Council. 'The General looked frail and ex tremely weak. His eyes had little ani mation and his' hands were feeble. It was evident he has not much ability to turn or move in his bed, and speech is with difficulty, but coherent. His pre viously thought our remarks could bo expressed without confusion, though in 15 minutes his power to d,o this is gone. Probably he does not recover his ability to talk until he has had a little rest. Indeed, he took nourishment twice while we were in the room. The Gen eral seemed to remember us all and spoke tenderly to each. He said hi, realised what we were asking, and add ed, * But I must have light to see what I must do and how I must do it.'

BUSH FIRES, VICTORIAN OUTBREAKS A COAL MINE BURNING TWO HOMES DESTROYED Melbourne, Januarv 17 Serious bush fires have been reported from many places in Victoria and ?al- ready much damage to property has been done. Yallourn. in Oippsland, has been '.n the grip of one of the worst fires in its historv. A forty-mile-an-hour gale raged to--iay, driving the fire before it threatening the old brown coal settle ment and destroying two homes. At the settlement, which Ls three miles from Yallourn main township, about 100 persons live in bush humpies, and cement bag bungalows. The whole settlement is surrounded by fires. The settlers had difficulty to-day in saving their homes. The climax came with dramatic sud denness. The whole of the bottom and face of the old open coal cut, 150- feet high, on which the settlement rests, burst into flames, and at nine o'clock to-night the mine was a burning crater belching dense columns of heavy black smoke.

WHAT IS A WATT ? HOW ELECTRICITY IS MEASURED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 18 January 1929
WHAT IS A WATT ? ? ♦ ? HOW ELECTRICITY IS MEASURED The language of the electrician is Greek to most people. Vliilst he talks glibly of volts and amperes and watts, they know only that they have to pay an electric-light bill for so many units, and let it go at that I Though electricity is not a fluid, we can understand moat of its terms by comparing it with water Cowing through a pipe. If we turn a stream of water on to the paddles of a water-wheel, the work, that the wheel will do depends upon two things — the amount, of water deliv ered every second and the pressure of the stream. We measure the first in gallons and the second in pounds. In the case of electricity, we mea sure the rate at which it flows in amperes and its pressure in volts. The work which it will do is found by multiplying amperes and volts to gether, which gives the answer in watts, or units of energy. The Board of Trade unit is 1,000 watts, often called a kilowatt, which is the electrical equivalent of one horse-...

GERMANY'S NEW ZEPPELIN SIZE GREATLY INCREASED EIGHT OR TEN ENGINES London, January 17. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 18 January 1929
GERMANY'S NEW ZEPPELIN SIZE GREATLY INCREASED EIGHT OR TEN ENGINES London, January 17. In anticipation of a greater new Zeppelin, the sheds at Friedrichshafen, which are too small, arc being disman- tled. Called the LZ128, the new Zeppelin will be about the same length as the Graf Zeppelin, but its maximum dia- meter will be increased one-eighth, giv- ing a cubic capacity of 150,000 cubic metres, compared with the Graf Zeppe- lin's 105,000, thus approaching the size of the new British airships. The chief alteration relates to the en- gines in accordance with Dr. Ecke- ner's dictum that greater power is the first essential. There will be either eight or ten engines set in pairs in gon- dolas, each gondola having one tractor and one pusher engine. If there are only eight engines the fifth gondola will be equipped with a reserve steer- ing cabin. &nbsp; Despite the experts' visit to the Brit- ish airships, the designers adhere to cabins and saloons looking straight into the air...
