12,000,000 TYRES A YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
12,000,000 TYRES A YEAR. The average man has but a vague idea of the -enormous extent of the automo bile tyre industry." "In the United States alone there are at present in round num bers 1,600,000 automobiles, and not one of them can possibly get along with less thain four tyres a year." As most of. them use much more than that, the most conservative estimate must place the number per carat six tyres a year. This would L t 9,600,000 tyres...In addition there are scheduled' for manufacture during 1915 .not -les 'than 600,000 new ears; which must be fitted with at least 2,400,000 new tyres, :naking a total-of 12,000,000' tyres, 't theovery lowest pos sible' figuring. In reality the number is much greater, even though'a million or more tyres, are"'re-treated," fitted with "'covers," etd. Taxicabs and some of the high-powered :converted racing cars could not' possibly. get along with less than 20 tyres ".ayear.

WIRELESS ON RAILWAY TRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
WIRELESS ON RAILWAY TRAINS. The advance which has been made by American scientists in the practical ap plication of wireless is illustrated in the successful use of wireless train despatch ing upon -:the Lackawanna Railroad, which has recently been carrying on ex tensive experiments in this direction. Stations equipped with Marconi ap paratus have been established at Hobo ken, Scranton, Binghampton, and Buf falo, four of the larger cities along the line of railway. The apparatus on trains. is similar in operation and principle to that of the fixed stations, although of lower capacity. The motor generator on the train is operated from the cat lighting generator. -"A moving train can hold continuous communication with a fixed station at a distance of 30 miles. The aerial on the train is formed of phosphor-bronze wire rectangles, one on the roof of each of the four forward cars, with 'link con nections between the cars.

THE DISCOVERY OF WOOD PULP. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE DISCOVERY OF WOOD PULP. With reference to a recent article on the above subject, Mr. Frank Lund, Bury, writes: I notice the inventor is stated to be an American, and the date of the dis covery being about 40 years' ago.. 'I herewith enclose a correct account of the discovery of the variety of wood pulp which is meant in your article: The use of wood fibres for the manu facture of paper had been suggested long before the year 2800, but it re mained an unkpown quantity until Keeoops, a Londoner, in that year, made paper from wood and used it in the pub liration of his book, "The history of writing materials from the earliest times." -Owing to lack of funds his process was not developed until the year 1846 when Keller, a German hand-loom weaver, obtained what-is now known as mechanical eood pulp, by the simple method of holding - a piece of wood against a grindstone revolving at a high speed; by this means he obtained-a pulp which was used for paper-making. In order to exploit his ...
BLUESTONING WHEAT. A Practical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
BLUESTONING WHEAT. A Practical Question. Suppose I start ' bluestoning'' wheat with 3 lb. bluestone to 20 gallons water; and have ten bags to treat, how many bags could I steep before it would get too weak, and how much bluestone should be added per bag to keep the solution up to the right strength? The reply of the Chief Inspector was that the number of bags the solution would pickle would depend upon how much water each bag required and that was difficult to say. Should the solu tion become exhausted, however, blue stone should not on any account be added. What should be done was to dissolve more bluestone in another vat at the rate of 1I lb. to 10 gallons water, and add it to the butt or vat in which the wheat is being dipped. The strength of the' solution would never be affected by the quantity of wheat treated; the only change would be that some of the water with the dis solved bluestone in it would be lifted out each time with the wheat.
THE "75" GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE "75" GUN. Mr. D. Cambanis, a Greek soldier, who has fought against the Turks and the Bulgarians, has an interesting article in T.P.'s -Journal of Great Deeds of the Grealt War. His subject is the '"75" gun, and he hero tells why it was chosen for the Greek Army:-''When, a few years ago, the Greek Army decided to adept anew field gun, several of the best firms in the world were asked to submit samples. The guns weie to be tested from every point of view. They were to fire a Jarge number of rounds, then accomplish a long journey over different kinds of ground, and fire again more rounds after the conclusion of the jour ney. In addition they were to be tested by being hurled down precipices, and put into water, and, of course, to be fired again after each trial. Among other firms, Krupp and Schneider-Canne sent their field guns, the latter the now famous '75.' The test started, and very soon Krupp's began to break down. It's representatives protested, declaring that there had been ...
THE SENSITIVE KAISER. GERMANS MUST GUARD THEIR TONGUES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
THE 8ENSITIVE KAISER. GERMANS MUST GUARD THEIR TONGUES. The hyper-sensitiveness and megalo mania of the Kaiser have much to answer flo. They created a mild reign of fear in Germany, but they have now turned Eurepe into the valley of the shadow of death, It is nearly twenty years since a popular music-teacher, Fraulein Had wig Jaede, in Stettin was sentenced to three months' imprisonment for having four years previously denounced the Kaiser's composition, the Song of Aegir, as "a piece of rubbish." What she raid was perfectly true, but "the great er the truth the greater the libel." The poor girl addressed a petition for pardon to the Empress, but being afraid to face her husband on such a ticklish inatter, she asked Herr von Levetzow, an ex-president of the Reichstag, to pre sent the matter. That gentleman no sooner broached the subject than the Em peror interrupted him. "''ou think the laws against "lese-majeste" are too rigidly enforcedl " he cried; "why, you astonish me! That the...
REVEALED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
REVEALED. "'The full horror of the Lusitania crime is now revealed, and it has stirred the people even more deeply than the poison clouds and other wanton and murderous acts of the Germans. Never since the world began has there been the spectacle of a whole race of many millions scientifically organised to com mit murder, lust, and devastation." London "Times."
UNIONISM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
UNIONIBSM. It it had not been for unionism noth ing could'have saved the working man. The latter has only his labor to sellU and the only way to protect himself is by uniting. There is nothing in the simple " annals of the poor to compare with the daring sacrifices of the splendid heroic lenders of British trades unionism. I have the most tremendous admiration for that trades union.' +-D?. Long, Bishop of Bathurst.
GREED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
GREED. "Even now, while the war is raging, the greed of the capitalists is of so ravening a nature that they cannot re frain from plundering the soldier in the trenches, and thieving from his help lesse wife and children. shoddy goods and bad food for him, supplied by trai torous contractors. kursQ-stripping prices and blood-draining rents for those he has loft behind in his country's eare. This is the greed that has made the war."
