What Is a Billion? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

What Is a Billion 7 WE learn from a correspondent, who writes from Laverton, W A , that "now the war is on there is a great difference of opinion as to what constitutes a billion, and how long it would take to count a billion of a million millions at the rate ol 200 a minute and 10 hours a d'iy ?'' Some nations, America and France, regard a billion as one thousand millions, but throughout the British Empire a million millions constitute a billion (1,000,000,000,oao). The time taken to count a British billion at the rate of 7.0b per minute, and for 10 hours a day, would be slightly over twenty-two thous and eight hundred and thirty one years (22,831 years). This time includes Sun days, and disregards the odd day in each leap year. Roughly estimating the Chris tian era at 2000 years, a person who started counting a billion at the Birth of Christ would now have scored less than one eleventh of a billion. Paid for his work at the moderate union rate of -if an hour (10/ a day) he would h...

Shamrock Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Shamrock Mine. Tits announcement made in these columns iaet week that the Rose, Thistle and Shamrock mine at Hatrietville, better known as the Shamrock, had been floated into a company with a working capital of £10,000, is very gratifying, the out standing feature of which to onr mind iB that mining investors havo not lost Bight of the fact that-there is more than one avenue io the Bright district that affords an opening for judicious expenditure of capital with a prospect ot an ultimate return. The Shamrock is a property with a history, and one that will stand the test from almobt every s'andpoint. Many j people will arguo that past history io not of much value in determining tho future of a mining field. To a great extent they nre correct, and that theory could, with safety, be applied to many fields ; but with the case of an individual mine, it is 1 logical to aBBUmo that where it can be shown that lodes which have been proved to he strong in character down to a depth of at leist...

Dreaming of a "Fag." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Dreaming of a "Fag." FOR those who remain behind in Aus tralia it i> hard to realise that one of the comforts moat urgently needed by the men wbo aru fighting the battles of the Empire is tobacco. It is almost impossible to send sufficient, for, whether behind the lines, in the trenches themeelvop, or lying wounded, lhe men need always the com forting pull of a pipe or the soothing draw of a cigarette How much Iho oft-despised weed-but never despised by the soldier on active service-can do for the men who are helping to carry tlio Empire's banner to victory, is strikingly illustrated by the following paragraph from A. 0. Richardson's book, "Britain's Awa kening" :-"The village is full of men who have been wounded," ho wrote. ''At tbo entranco a fresh lot of ambulances appear. Some of the men are only slightly hurt, but they bring one man [ in who, seeing mo standing there beckons mo and says in a very husky voice, 1 Got a fag on yer, eir ?

Election Incidents. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Election Incidents. '1 HE most amusing incident of the recent Federal elections occurred in one of the .St. Kilda booths early on election morning, when two children, a boy of eight and a girl perhaps two years younger, put in an appearance. They had been wandering about the interior of the booth for about ten minutes, curious!) observing the pro ceedings, before the boy summed up cour age to breast one of the tables. He was holding the little girl firmly by the hand, andtherewasa look of tiemendous re solution in his eye. " Please sir, we want to vote for someone," said he, to one of the scrutineers. "What ?" gasped the offfcal. " We want to vote for Billy Hughes," explained the boy defiantly There was a yell of laughter from the people about the table, before which the children retreated in some alarm. But a few minutes later the boy was intercep ted in the act of trying to smuggle a paper into the ballot box, and the youth ful pair were removed. The paper read : "Votes for Mister...

Heavy Rainfall. 7.71 INCHES FOR THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Heavy Rainfall. 7.71 INCHES FOR THE MONTH. THE weather conditions, during the past fortnight, in fact lor the whole of the month, have been somewhat trying, particularly to those whose calling forces them into tho open, and up to Thursday morning rain had fallen on 18 days, the total being 7.71 inches. The nearest approach to this record for May was in 1915, when 6 10 inches fell. Since the 20th inst. 2 89 inches have been registered the heaviest fall occurrini on Wednesday when 97 points fell. All the streams in' the district have risen rapidly, and are considerably above normal conditions. The record for the year is now 19 01 inches, as against 13.40 inohe3 for the first five months of last year. Should the present average be maintained, last year's record of 54 68 inches will be easily outdistanced. The recent heavy rains have caused all the streams in the district to rise rapidly. At Tawonga the Kiewa River h« washed away portion of one of the approaches to tho bridge. This will...

Important to Soldiers. RATES OF PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Important ito Soldiers. RATES OF PAY. To remove a misconception wbicli has arisen in some quarters, special attention is directed to the fact that in the " Re cruiting Ready Reckoner," published by the authority of the State Recruiting Committee, the rates of pay and pension specified for married men in the A.I.F. include what the soldier himself draws as well as the amount paid to the family of the soldier. It is also desired to point out that in addition to the amount drawn during the absence of a soldier from the Common wealth, deferred pay of 1/ per day, amouuring to ,£18 5/ per year, is payable to a soldier on his return to Australia. Any promotion from the rank of private means a corresponding increase all round.

Watchful Members OS Tuesday last the HOBS A. O. Sachc, M.L C , and A. A. Billson, M.L.A., waited cm the Minister of Agriculture (MrHagel thoru) to support a request made by the shire council for a continuance of the £. for £ subsidy on salt for eradication of St. John's wort. After listening to the arguments put forward by the hon. gentlemen, the Minister granted its re quest. This is very gratifyiug to those who are making an effort to keep their lauds free of the pest. Both gentlemen then visited the Minis ter of Education to request that a Higher Elementary school be established at Bright. Mr Billson states that although the Minister said he could not' give a definite assurance to them that day, he was taking such action as he felt would enable him to grant the request. Ho was very sympathetic to the claim made for a sohool, and Mr Billson concludes that he personally has no doubt but Bright will have a Higher Elementary school before this year closes.

Lloyd George and Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Lloyd George and Economy^ THE dynamic Prime Minister of Groat Britain, like his fellow Welshman of Australia, Mr Hughes, had a hard struggle in his early days. The English papers are tolling stories of his starved youth and early manhood, with noteB of admiration for tlio pluck and steadfastness that pulled him through, and therein thoso conserva tive journals stand out in strong contrast to the Australim Labour papers that only a little whilo recalled with contempt the email beginnings of Mr Hughes. One story of Mr Lloyd tioorge-'s boyhood, as told by himnelf, seems extraordinary when we rnmembor the masnlfieent position he now holds in the eslimation o£ the world. In his young days Mr Lloyd George knew something of food control, wholemeal bread and two nieatlcBS days. Describing his homo he said:-"My mother had a hard struggle to" bring up hor children. Our bread was home made. We scarcely ever ate freBh meat, and I remember that our groateat luxury was half an egg each on Sunday ...

Two or three days later he-received a hamper with a cat, having a label attached to its neck, on which was written, "You will find her a very pleasant companion, a total abstainer, an early riser, and a good vocalist." The German Union, for the Develop ment of the German language is de manding that "in future peace, ne gotiations. the German language shall be used." But not, we hope, the same language they used when they read the peace terms of the Allies! "The Storyteller" for the current month i§ a fine number. "The Lion's Eyes," by Herbert Ward, is of thrilling interest, and Oliver Cur wood's second instalment of "The Son of Kazan" is worthy of the author.
