HOW FAR CAN WE SEE? [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 27 August 1915

HOW FAR CAN WE SEE? .Experiments made in the German Army show that tbo average soldier can rccojjuise an intimate friend at 500 i'ect, an acquaintance at 1)00 feet, a person whom the soldier had seen only once before at SO feet. An expert rifle man can distinguish the parts of a man's body and any decided movement at o00 feet. A man seems but a spot on the landscape at 1,800 feet, and, as a rule, he cannot be seen if lie keeps still or if his dress does not contrast with the background.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 27 August 1915

;)F RURAL INTEREST (By "Husticus.") Tiio fact that, exccpt on the Eastern front, t!ie war is mainly conducted in ti ouches, and that cavalry have been made use of as infantry, has lessened the demand for light horses consider ably beyond what wns expected. For instance,' practically all the Australian horses are idle in Egypt. There has been some anxiety in the United States on account of the largo sales to Eur ope as a result of the war demand, and a report on the position of affairs has been issued "by the Bureau ot' Aitiinai Industry at Washington. From Sep tember to December inclusive, it ap pears, 75,000 horses were e.vpuru-d t,> Europe from the Unitod States, and many thousands more had been bought by representatives of the belligernnt na tions. Since then purchases have been going on on almost the same scale. There does not appear to be any im mcdiato danger of such sales causing any acute .shortage of horses in Am erica. The 1910 census gave 3,182.7S9 as the number of hor...

Mr. Youill's original statement was as fol lows:-"I feel it a duty I owe to you, and to suffering humanity, to send you this letter, in the earnest hope that others who may be suffering as I was, from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease of the kidneys, ma}' take courage, and learn from my experience to adopt the same method of treatment that I did, feeling sure that bj' so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave.

Wonthaggi District Hospit a AN APPEAL FOR FUNDS. TOWN AND DISTRICT RESIDENTS WANTED TO ASSIST. SUGGESTIONS INVITED. The existing state cf the finan ces of the Wonthaggi hospital are such as to cause well wishers of that deserving institution grave concern. The rapidly enormous advance in the cost of many medi cines, medical and surgical equip ment, and the very highly increa sed cost of food supplies, caused by the European war and the past dry season, are the factors which have been responsible for inroads upon the hospital bank account. After the last month's accounts were passed for payment, there was a debit balance at the bank, and a few months ago the-account was over £1.00 in credit. The position is serious and calls for immediate attention. As- an instance of the advance in cost of certain drugs and medi cines the following are tjuoted as typical, (The first column shows the price before the war and the second column the present price, which may be still further advan ced in...
