Austrian Dairies Distressed. COWS SOLD FOR £80. Some grotesque consequences of the scarcity of foodstuffs and animal fod der in Austria and Hungary aro de scribed in an article in an Austrian paper. In Vienna, although the price of milk is enormous, the dairies in general are in a most awkward posi tion for want of fodder, and every day one or two of them give up busi ness in consequence. Of tlio 10,000 cows which supplied tho milk needs of the Austrian capital before the war, only 5000 are now in existence, the rest having been slaughtered. T-lie price of a cow to-day Is £80, as against £26 a year ago, tho conse quence being that the dairymen can not resist tho temptation to sell the cows.

Can Turkey Feed Germany? [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 10 February 1916

Can Turkey Feed Germany? Turkey is not normally a largo ex porter of Hie chief food needs of Ger many. Can Germany bo fed with the £2,000,000 worth of barley or the £1,500,000 worth of raisins which the Turks used to export in good years, chiefly to England? The £15,000,000 worth of wool and Angora which she can supply will possibly help to clothe the Teutons a year from now, but they will not feed the hungry to day. The opium of Turkey has its medical uses, but it will not put the (lesli on German bones. The flocks of the Kurds and Arabs will supply a moderate amount of meat, but only after the herding and packing Indus try has been organised. Hungry days may Intervene before that is accom plished. Turkey does in good years raise 325,000,000 bushels of cereals for her own consumption. The surplus that she can spare at present for Germany out of a war-stricken crop is derisory. Xo doubt the extension of railroads and the development of farm colonies could in tirno make Asia Minor an...

Swindling War Widows. SPIRITUALISTIC HUMBUGS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 10 February 1916

Swindling War Widows. SPIRITUALISTIC HUMBUGS. [ Fraud in many, new guises has j sprung up as tlio result of this war, and unscrupulous scoundrels and wo men swindlers are reaping a rich harvest by a variety ol tricks which the police authorities And consider able difficulty in checkmating. There is the swindler, for instance, who houses one or two refugees in order to obtain unlimited funds from the generous-hearted public. No books' are kept in such cases, and, as a rule, no books are asked for. Tradesmen are being swindled every day by 'men in officers' uniform, who order goods without authority, while the military authorities are being extensively de frauded by women who secure extra allowances by a dozen and one differ ent dodges. Again, there have never been such prosperous times for spiritualists and fortune-tellers, who, trading on the credulity of women, reap ricli har vests by pretending to furnish in formation of relatives on active ser vice.

War Strikes in Australia. LOSS OF £330,000 in WAGES FOR ONE YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 10 February 1916

War Striket in Australia. LOSS OF £330,000 in WAGES FOR ONE YEAR. It will not bo pleasant reading for our friends in France, where war-ser vices have been organised up to the highest degree and down to the re motest auxiliary occupation, to look through the list ot what may be term ed war-strikes in Australia. In "ST disputes, nearly 00,000 workers wast ed 545,000 days of time and a total of .C330,000 in wages was lost. That was for a year from October 1, 191-1. to September 13, 1915. In many in stances, as In the present Broken Hill and Newcastle troubles, the industries affected had a direct and enormously important bearing on tho war, and in every instance a bearing in one degree or another. If it could be traced to a connection with tho war in no other way, every strike would bo a blow for tho enemy by the mero effect ol it on the immediate money-producing capacity of the community. We must produce men, munitions, material, money, everything, with the greatest rapidity, for tho ...

Ship Canal Across Europe NORTH SEA TO BLACK SEA. A special correspondent in Switzer land writes to a London nowspaper:— A slilp canal from tlio North Sea to the Illack Sea—this is the latest de velopment o£ the manifold schemes for establishing German supremacy in the Balkans and In tlio Near East. Tlio Rhino and tlio Danube, already navigable for vessels o£ considerable •size, would form tlio greater part of the new waterway, and the whole length could bo completed by widen ing and deepening the ltivor Main, and connecting it by a canal with tlio upper reaches of the Danube in Ba varia. Exports liavo been consulted, and liavo pronounced the plan feasible and comparatively easy to carry out, and engineers aro now engaged in making tho preliminary survey of the ground.

London Letter. Carmelite House, London, England. Dec. 18, 1915. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 10 February 1916

London Letter. f r" Carmelite House, London, England. Dec. IS, 1915. We are having really seasonable winter weather. The rain, the mud, and the fogs have disappeared and London has for some days been enjoy ing a heavy frost. There has been a gold deal of sunshine—cold, wintry sunshine—ami the sky in tho evening is clearer than 1 have known it for many weeks. On Sunday morning we had a snowstorm, hut the snow quick ly disappeared, at least in central London. Tho cold, however, continues, and there must have been several de grees of frost for most of the time during the past few days. If this weather dors net break up we may see Christmas as the novelists love to de scribe it: Christmas with roads block ed with snow, with skating, with sleighing on the hills, and with all the accompaniments of an old-fashioned English winter. However, British weather is much too uncertain to pro phesy about, and even before this letter is in print the frost may have disappeared. Our Uncertain Climate....
