New Source for paper. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
New Source for paper. A new. paper-making process de scribed to the Paris • Academy of Sciences has suggested new possi bilities for the French colonies. Paper is made by felting cellulose, the elastic envelope of vegetable cells, and the new process is claim ed to clean and make available much cellulose cheaper than that of wood. The plants include bam boo, alfalfa, poppy, sorghum, rice, maize, and seaweeds.' Most pro mising of all is the banana, which on an equal area yields 133 times as much material as wheat, and is. estimated to supply two tons of excellent pulp per acre every ten months, while the product of a pine forest, cut every sixty years, is only half a ton of pulp per acra annually.
Japan Like Britain: Hard Pressed For Land. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
Japan Like Britain : H3rd ] Pressed For Land. ■ — 4 The peculiar agricultural limita tions of Japan were brought out in a recent paper by Miss 13. C. Seinplo to the Royal CJeographical Society. .With an equable island climate nnd food from both land and sen, the conditions favoured the de velopment of early civilisation, but the lack of new area to cultivate for the growing population soon brought the stage of intensive agri culture. Production within the is land area has been handicapped. Forests and barren land' make culti vation rare above 2,300 feet, and the arable land of Japan proper is only 14.37 per cent. of the total urea, which is a lower percentage than is known elsewhere except in Finland, Sweden, and Norway— sparsely populated countries. The staple crop, rice, is confined to tho vicinity of rivers and streams. The available soil' is not of fertile kind, and low efliciency is promoted by the practical absencc of stock-rais ing. A few attempts to reclaim barren and ill-wa...

Sympathetic Farmers NEIGHBOR'S CHOP SOWN A UNIQUE SPECTACLE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
Sympathetic Farmers NEIGHBOR'S CHOP SOWN A UNIQUE SPECTACLE An example of the sympathetic nature of the district farmers was demonstrated on Wednesday last, when a large number assembled to take part in a working bee for the purpose of putting in a crop on the farm of Mr. II. L. Boneham, near Lake Ilindmarsh. Mr. Boneham, has, unfortunately, been unable to farm his land this season through sickness. The idea originated from Messrs. R. W. Dunn and C. E. Helyar, and these two gentle men, together with those who helped to make the "working bee" so successful, deserve every credit for their laudable desire to render assistance in the time of need. At 7.30 a.m. three teams hnd yoked up, but the main con tingent did not start operations till between nine and ten o'clock. Once the teams had got going at an even pace everything went off swimmingly, and, indeed, the land "seemed to be in the know," for it turned over in a surprising manner and there was not the slightest hitch, the general s...

The British Budget MIXED FEELINGS PREVAIL MUCH DISCUSSION EXPECTED London, Wednesday. Although the Budget delivered by Mr. Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, on Monday, has been received without excitement the Stock Exchange and the Unionists are amazed at the piling up of new taxes upon one class.

Mr. Lloyd George, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer has, for the first time on record, to raise over £200,000,000 to meet the estimated expenditure in 1914-15.

TWO WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 103 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contractcd about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure 011 the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re-' medics without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been j highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years." From Mrs. Eva Sharrer, 24 Hanover strett, Windsor, Vic " Some years ago I was taken -with vi...
Terrible Mine Disaster SEVEN MEN KILLED THE CAUSE A MYSTERY [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
Terrible Mine Disaster SEVEN MEN KILLED - THE CAUSE A MYSTERY Tbe most appalling accident in the history of Bendigo mining occurred at the Great Extended Hustler's mine, at about 10 o'clock on Saturday night, when an ex .plosion destroyed the lives of £even men. The whole staff were work ing at the 1053 foet level. The deaths were mercifully instantane ous. The cause of the accident will be an unsolved mystery, and it will be buried with the men in their graves, that is, even if they knew, which ia by no means a certainty. Many are the conjectures, for many are the probabilities, but expert mining men who viewed the scene of the accident on Sunday, and took into account the whole sur roundings, including the positions where the bodies were found, asserted that the cause will never be definitely known. Moreover, some of the theories, if followed to their'logical conclusion, would fix the blame on any or all of the deceased. Fortunately the opinion of Mr. J. E. M'Coll, mining inspec t...
FIGHTING FOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
. FIGHTING FOGS. That London's "particular" — the yellow*; pea-soup atmosphere which sometimes sbttles over the Metropolis and materially adds to doctors' bank ing accounts—may bo abolished is the hope held out by a French scient ist, M. Onderio, the head 'of the Lyons Observatory, whose novel rem edy is to be pilt to the test at Lyons. The French city suffers almoBt as much from fogs as London, and M. Onderio has formed the theory that these fogs are due to the enormous evaporation from the Rivers Rhone and Saone, as they flow through that city. This theory is shared by other scientists, who attribute London fog*, to the vapor arising from the Thames, as well as to the excessive stroke. Whereas other scientists, however, have usually proposed to banish fogs by attacking them when they have once been formed in the air, M. On derio proposes to prevent their forma tion by a very simple plan. His idea is to suppress £7ie rising of the water vapor by covering the surface of the rivers w...
