SCIENCE NOTES & NEWS IMPERMEABLE TO X-RAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 5 February 1914

SCIENCE NOTES & NEWS ( ♦ IMPERMEABLE TO X-RAYS. It is well known that persons who conduct lengthy experimental - work With X-rays, and those who have occa sion to make use of them in regular practice, arc exposed to a certain dan ger of injury from these rays. M. Bettremieux has prepared a flexible silk fabric, impregnated with three times its own weight of lead phospho stannate. Tbis fabric is said to be as opaque to X-rays as a lead plate, while being, of course, much more flexible and handy. It can, for example, be made into gloves for the operator's hands.

THE MOUNT Alexander Mail. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 5 February 1914

THE pmmt gtottflat Pail THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 5. lull. The truly atrocious water supply which 'Maldon is burdened with .and blasphemous under is a manor of some moment to Castlemaine, and our pub lic; bodies should assist Maldon in every possible way to prevail on the Water Supply Commission to give that centre the supply of water it is entitled to. At present Maldon is oik short allowance, as there is only 2 feet of water in the reservoir, and a con tinuance of the dry spell for another week or tw0 will bring Maldon into i the grip of a water famine. There is 1 iio reason why this should bo so. The Commission has of laic years been extending the channels to small settle ments the other side of Beudigo, which is proving a severe tax on the Colibau I basins. It would have been a more business-like proposition to have first of all provided good supplies to the i centres between Malmsbury and Beu digo, before going farther afield, i they have done.

COFFEE FROM DRIED FIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 5 February 1914

COFFEE FROM DRIED FIGS. Ii ts claimed that an excellent coffee can be made from dried and roasted figs, which need not be of the first quality. They are dried in the sun, or in evaporating pans, according to cli mate. and then roasted in oven* (ill brown, or almost black and ciuite brit tle. They arc then ground up, and the resultant powder is pressed into tab lets. These must be kept dry. When j made use of they arc merely dissolved in hot water. One hundred kilos of the dry figs give seventy-five kilos of the dry powder. The figs cost 1? francs, and the powder sells for b'O francs wholesale, and one hundred or more at retail, so that the trade ought to be profitable if a demand can be cre ated. The beverage is said to be agreeable in color and flavor, with a somewhat sweeter taste than that made from chicory.

BALDNESS CURED BY FREEZING [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 5 February 1914

BALDNESS CURED BY FREEZING Can baldness be cured by told atmospheric treatment? This is a question thai has been occupying the attention of scientists. Sir Ernest Shackleton, the explorer, laid stress upon the fact that many of the men in his expedition before their sojourn in the Antarctic regions were remarkable for the thinness of their locks. They had barely been a few weeks in the frozen South, however, than their hair began to grow, and j when they returned from their expedi- ! tion all had hair remarkable for its I thickness and luxuriance. It lias been remarked also that < nearly all the men who work the greater part of the day in cold storage i rooms have good heads of hair. The laws of Nature would seem to emphasize the fact that cold is favour able to the growth of hair. Take the case of the animals. In no countries of the world is their fur so thick and luxuriant as in the frozen Arctic re gions. By a special dispensation of ■Providence the animal dwellers the...

? WOMEN'S BUDGET M ■ — .f. ■ "■ ' FASHION -NOTES AND HOWE HINTS. Bright shades arc the choice of the moment. But one must be care ful where bright shades are con cerned, for there is the little mat ter of complexion to consider. Should the bright shades clash ■with natural coloring, then the summer dress will be marred and not made. • * * * As a rule, the blonde woman sel ects pink or blue as her favorite hues, forgetting there are other ■tints which may become -her equally as well.
