PANAMA CANAL STOPPAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 3 March 1916

PANAMA CANAL STOPPAGE. Tlie news that landslides are likely to close the Panama Canal to traffic for a considerable period is not only a sore disappointment' to those responsible for this ocean highway, but a serious inconvenience to the' shipping inter ests which had begun to make regular use of the Canal. Some traders have adopted the costly remedy of unshipping cargoes at the ocean terminal of the Canal and. making use of rail transport ae^l'ss the Isthmus, but most of the traffic has returned to the use of the old route through the Magellan Straits. The problem of landslides is an old one at Panama, and goes back to the days, of the PrencK;eii|i; ,gineers who worked under de Lesseps. ^T-he difficulties which they experienced with the notorious Cucuraclia slide have continued down to the present day, and it is noteworthy that the movement has not been confined to the superficial clays,; but has extended to tjic un derlying volcanic rocks.

SHE LOSES LIFE. "If Scrvia falls she does not lose independ ence merely. She does not lose provinces, eco nomic independence or political liberties. Slie loses life. "The battle of Servia. is the simplest, most primitive of all struggles. A year ago, when the Austrian trops crossed the Save and ap-, proached Volievo, they killed as they ad vanced- As they retreated they left behind them a smoking" wilderness. They came to destroy a race, they retired defeated, but left, behind them an appalling wilderness, and for' the victorious survivors the crowning tragedy of a typhus epidemic. .. "If German.

APPLE - GROWING. MOUNT KEIRA AND MOUNT KEMBLA ORCHARDS. The Assistant Government Fruit Expert, Mr. J. G-. E. Grant, writes in the '' Agricul tural Gaaette''— " There is developing in New South Wales a general increase in" the planting out of apple orchards. Most of this development is : taking place around Penrose,. Tallong, Goul burn, Batlow, Young, Orange, and Bathurst. Naturally cach section has its peculiar at tractiveness and value. There is, however, room for much greater expansion in the Mounts Keira section, the prospects of which are cer tainly bright, if the results achieved at pres ent can be taken as a guide. Mount Keira and Mount Kembla are situated to the west and south-west of Wollongong, on the South | Coast. In fact, the range of hills runs paral I lei to the main South Coast line, as well as the Pacific Ocean. Having a protection from the sea air, and situated at an altitude some hundreds of feet from the sea level, the cli mate is naturally a cool and temperate on...

WASTE HEAT TO STIMULATE PLANT GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 10 March 1916

WASTE/ HEAT TO STIMULATE PLANT GROWTH. Attempts have frequently been made of late /years to stimulate vegetation- by electric ty ct radio-activity. Encouraging though their results have been, these investigations, how <djgLJ did not get beyond the experimental A\ new departure on somewhat similar lines is nbw being made at the Dresden Technical Hi git School, where plantation tests on ex tensive grounds heated by waste heat are in progress. v Credit for the original idea is due to Chief . Engineer Schulze of the same city who suggested that the output of the soil could be increased and the growth of plants accele rated considerably by a supply of artificial heat. The most advantageous plan obviously consists of utilising to this effect the waste heat from large factories and electricity works which is now allowed to escape into the air as a useless waste'product; if the heat had to be specially produced, the process, of course, would hardly pay. However, the various nur s...
