War and the Woman [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 3 April 1915

War and the Woman By MAX PEMBEBTON. 'Then why do you address them? That is just what Mr. Paber asks. Why not turn to those who can lend the people. If the greut mimes of Europe and America were behind you, the millennium would come. I myself would hope more from two such men as Sir Jules Aclion nml j John Faber than from all the sermons in the world. But I have become a very practicnl person, father. I think some times I am growing terribly masculine.' 'You always used to be, Gabrielle. I remember when you were the greatest tomboy in Hampstead. That, by the way, was before wour engagement to Harry. Do you know, my dear girl, I wonder sometimes if marriage is your destiny at all.' 'If not marriage, what then, father?' 'l'ublie work. The practice of the ideas you have just been pleading to me.' Gabrielle shook her head. She spoke with little restraint, and iu a way that astonished him altogether. 'T don't agree with you. T believe in 'my heart that I. am destined to love and marriage....

THRILLING , AIR FIGHT. TAUBE BROUGHT DOWN. GENERAL'S SON KILLED. A thrilling account of an aerial dial that resulted in the forced descent of u Taube near Amiens has reached Paris. One of tho most experienced French pilots was carrying out a reconnaissance over. the enemy's lines in the north, accompanied by a young lieu tenant. Thu aviators' mission had been ac complished.and they were returning to their own lines, when, 12 miles from Lille, they , sighted a Taube spying out the French posi tions. Without a moment's hesitation it was de cldej t«- give chase, and the French pilot increased speed accordingly, while his ob server made the necessary arrangements for ?a tight. The pursuit lasted* fully an hour, until the two machines were over the outskirts of Amiens, and was carrlo! out with such skill and cunning that the Ge'rnmn aviator was quite sure that he was clear of his pertinaci ous pursuers. He discovered his mistake too late. When within some 15 yards of his adver sary the F...

TRICKS HINDOOS PLAY. | TOO WILY FOR HUNS. In one of his recent famous despatches from the front Sir John French paid a spe cial tribute to the prowess of the Indian I troops, who were doing such splendid ser j vice In helping to bent the Germans. | 'Some of the ruses employed by them to I ; deceive the enemy have been attended with ] the best results, and have doubtless kept superior forces in front of them at bay,' wrote Sir John. He did not go into details concerning the tricks which these wily men from tho East play, but seeing that by now those Germans unfortunate enough lo have been posted near them have learned by bitter and humiliating experience many wayB In which the Indians j 'fool,' there can bo no harm In repeating some of them here. j One of the latest of these Indian ruses to ' come to lih'ht might be called 'faking pitter patters.'

TURKISH AVIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 3 April 1915

TURKISH AVIATION. j According to statements published before the war, Turkey, following the example of the other Powers, entered the aeroplane movement, and may even be in advance of Home In tho way of marine aviation. In considering the make-up of the new aero- j plane fleet there was considerable competi tion between constructors of France, Ger many, and America, the last represented by Gurtiss, wno Uiuue tx scoca the Bosporus to show the advantages of his flying boat. It appears, however, that French builders came In for a good part of the orders, and the Nleuport establishment was to fur nish us many as 30 hydro-aeroplanes. Ac cording to a good authority, Turkey intends to tit up three centres of naval aviation, and the above-mentioned marine flyers are for tills purpose. These are of 8ft horse-power, the Rhone type, the same as made such a good performance at the last French naval manoeuvres and went through a brilliant flights ut Bizcrta. on the Mediter ranean.

Pro fessor of Jurisprudence at Berlin University, to which considerable space Is given by tn* VosBlscho Zeltung. It proves, however, to be merely an attack on England In a new guise.

Correspondent of the Times.) ..ome doubt has been thrown by corres pondents upon the ability of the Zeppelins to reach London from Cuxhavcn. the place from which the raiders of Tuesday night, January 19, appear to have started. The dis tance which the airships travelled, includ ing their manoeuvres over the land, must have been quite U50 miles. This is not nearly as iur as simnur airsnips nave travelled in the past. One of the Zeppelins Hew from Friedrlehshufen, on Lake Constance, to Ber lin, a continuous flight of about lOiHJ miles, in 31 hours. Our naval officers will also recull the occasion of the visit of the First Cruiser Squudron to Copenhagen in September, 1912, when the German passenger uirship Hansa was present.

RADIUM WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 7 April 1915

RADIUM WATER. With the discovery of tho marvellous physical properties of radium, it seemod to bo expected by tho general public, somewhat irrationally, that its medical properties would bo equally marvellous. The consequence has been that a num ber of hasty claims on behalf of the curativo properties of radium havo beeu made which have boon subsequently abandoned, and thcro is now somo danger that tho public, finding itself ropeatodly mislod, will prove itself sceptical of re sults which have undoubtedly been ncbiovod.

HOW MUCH SUPERPHOSPHATE? A Practical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 7 April 1915

HOW MUOH SUPERPHOSPHATE? I ? A Practical Question. What quantity of superphosphate should be used in sowing wheat thU I I ycarf I The question has been asked in. many I forms from all parts of the State this I year, tho idea entertained by farmers | being that where crops failea last year it should not bo necessary to use so much of the fertiliser this year. Tho Chief inspector's reply to sueh quostions is that under certain cireum stancee it is safe and economical to apply a smallor quantity of manure than is usual. He expressed his opinion thus: 'While the Department usually advocates tho sowing of 501b. per acre of superphosphate, this is a rulo that need not be carried out in its ontiroty | this year. Paddocks that were sown I last year with, say, 501b. of suporphos | phate, and that havo not yielded wheat, need not bo treated with so much rranure. It is not suggested that no manure should be used, but about 301b. superphosphate will be sufficient.' An Xlxporiment. Wo are accust...
