I lio former method ii a very easy anil simple method, but it has the disadvantage of destroying all the natural juices of the food—juices which cannot lie replaced by adding water at feeding time.

A Valuable Mineral. The very high price now being ob tained for molybdenite— £500 per ton—lends special interest to :i recent | discovery of fresh lodes ol' this miner al in the State of Queensland.

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 October 1914

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO Tbo only matched sold in Loudon 100 years ago were cedar splints tipped with a paste of chlorate of potash and sugar. On dipping one of these into a littlo bottle containing asbestos wetted with sulphuric acid, and withdrawing it, a flamo burst forth, fifty iu a box, to gether with the bottle, wore sold for a shilling. The matches invented by John Walker in 1827—the first to ig nite on sandpaper—were sold at the same price. Chviug to the damage caused by the heads flying off after ignition, the use of these matches was prohibited iu France and Germany. Six years later came the invention of lucifers, the iirst matchos with phos phorus in their composition. Tlicso, too, wore originally sold at a shilling a box, and when in course of time the price fell to a penny a motto from '' Paradise Lost" was suggested for the boxes, "O, Lucifer! how greatly art thou fallen!"

UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 October 1914

UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT Novel life-saving apparatus is carried by the steamer Reeto, which arrived at Dover recently from Norway. Slung from her davits is to be seen a lifeboat, which bears a striking resemblance to a submarine, sylindrical hull and con ning tower complete. It is of sufficient size to accommodate the whole of the steamer's crew of fifteen hands, and is entered through the conuing-tower, the hatch of which may bo closed. The craft is self-righting and above the tower is a Bmall mast on which a sail can bo rigged. it is claimed for this lifeboat that it is unsinkable unless it should be stove in, and that it can live in the roughest sea. Tho Becto also carries a motor life-boat of tho open type, and has probably the finest life saving equipment of any mercantile vessel of her sizo.
