Their master one morning called them both before him that he might hear what they had to say. The cook pleaded that the coacli ir.au was lounging about the kitchen t...

WEALTH FROM, SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 9 May 1914

WEALTH FROM, SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ottawa with light and heat at 5d. per 1000ft. This is thought to portend that around the great sawmills, which have been emp tying their dust into the Ottawa T'.iver, a variety of new industries subsisting oil it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully search ed for, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to the proper temperature; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press, where it is compressed into briquettes of the required size. The press turns out about nineteen every minute, weigh ing two-fifths of a...

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 1G3 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 contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute p.'iin in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief. I havincr tried so many re- C medics without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been hiplity recommended to me by friends wim had derived great benefit from taking the mcdicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually curcd and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years."

FIGHTING FOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 9 May 1914

FIGHTING FOGS. That London's "particular" — the yellow, pea-soup atmosphere which sometimes settles over the Metropolis and materially adds to doctors' bank ing accounts—may be 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 bo put to the test at Lyons. The French city suffers almost as much from fogs as London, nnd HI. 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 fogs to the vapor arising from the Thames, as well as to the excessive siroke. 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. Ilis idea is to suppress (Tie rising of the water vapor by covering the surface of the rivers with...

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 9 May 1914

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. In consequence of the frequency of | railway collisons in various parts of the world recently, the directors of the Western (State) Railway, which torms part of the Newliaven-Dicppe route to London, are conducting a series of experiments with a new de vice which, it is hoped, will render it impossible for engine-drivers unwil lingly to run past signals. The new apparatus, which, from its 1 shape, is known as the "crocodile," is placed between the rails near the (lis- [ lance signals, and is so arranged that when the train passes over it con nection is made"'with the engine in j such a way that a powerful siren on the engine at once warns the driver that the signal, although, perhaps, in visible through fog, is against him.
