It is the supreme act of human perfidy, for it strikes a blow not only at the Balkan States to which Bulgaria owes allegiance, but at' the whole of Europe, now threatened by | the dastard who controls the German armies, whose soldiers shoot English women as they lie^fainting on the ground, whose sailors dr...

TEAN SFORMING SUGikR INTO PROTEINS AND I^ATS. \ 'V,' By Dr. H. W. HILLYEE;. Two announcements which have come froi Germany recently in regard to food supply are of very great interest. ' They; are Wtfi' statements that it is possible to produce necessary foodstuffs in a very speedy fashion by factory methods. / The raw material is sugar, perhaps sugar :now going to waste, and no other organic •material. The activei agents are micro organisms which transform the sugar into pro teins in one ease and into fats in the other case. It is well known that for the growth of a yeast in a sugar solution the presence of cer tain salts is necessary, and also that nitrogen in some form is necessary. Usually this nitrogen is that cLerived from the natural juice to be fermented 01* that derived from • a decoction of Other1 yeast j that is, the nitro gen is present in some form of organic nitro gen. But now it is shown that if nitrogen is supplied in the form of sulphate of anT Jiionia, the developm...

"PEDIGREE." APPLIED TO FARM MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 3 March 1916
APPLIED TO FARM MACHIN ERY. There., is just as much. difference between tlie value of farm machines as there is between the worth of horses. In selecting a horse m uch depends on the "breed," and in buy ing a farm machine, the "make" is the most important thing to know. If it is a Massey-Harris British Built, you know the "pedigree" is right.

THE TURK AND KULTUR. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 3 March 1916
THE TURK AND KtJLTUR. The eager attempts in the German press to present the Turhrs as a nation of Oriental gentlemen anxious to open their doors to the entrance of Kultur, and ready to welcome the remodelling hand of Germany, have a fresh il lustration in a long article in the "Kolnisclie Zeitung." The writer points out that one of the most infallible proofs of national regeh- ! eration in Turkey is the insistence of the na tion on purifying their Osmanli language from Persian and Arabic elements. Like their Ger man masters, they are also '' purifying the streets" by insisting on the removal of English and French signboards arid business notices. Gratifying to the "Kolnische" writer is the magnanimity which permits German signboards, whilp those of the Western nations are being ruthlessly swept away. "Within the past few weeks these energetic regenerated Turks have eyon begun to clear away Greek signboards. We are told also that Turks are much flat tered by the attention which Germa...

FRENCH CAPTAIN. FOUGHT IN WAR OF '70. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 3 March 1916
FRENCH CAPTAIN. FOUGHT IN "WAR OF '70. Captain Arthur Constant Aueher is a French man. He has been an Australian resident | since 1880. Ten years prior to that date he | was a young lieutenant of the 84th Infantry | in Marshal MacMahon's Army of the Rhine, J which had proudly marched to meet the Prus sian hosts, led by von Moltke. Although over 40 years have elapsed since he heard the roar of the guns at the great battle of Worthy when, after 15 hours of the most desperate fighting, MaeMahon was de feated, Captain Aucher is still physically a fine type of a soldier—erect, vigilant, and high ly intelligent. Since the present titanic strug gle in Europe commenced, this veteran. French officer has been chafing to do something of practical value to the common cause, and he recently offered his services to the Defence De partment as a recruiter. "When President Loubet ruled the destinies of the French Republic, Captain Aueher, through M. Chayet, French Consul-General - in Sydney, receive...
