j ? + ? | I WOMEN AND WAR. I Over two thousand years ago thcro was a war botween China and Mongolia, and China was invaded by a . Mongolian army under Mao-tun. The Chinese Em- 1 peror was besieged in the City of Ping, and when the situation seemed to be hopeless ho ordored that a number of ' lay figures representing beautiful women bo made and exposed on the city walls. ! He then caused a message to bo sont to ! the wife of the Mongolian leader to the effect that these attractive maidens were ' intended aa a present to her husband. i The ruse was eatirely successful.

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 7 April 1915
The Weather. On Saturday evening last heavy banks of olouds, nooompsnied by thunder and vivid lightning, gave promise of rain, but beyond a few heavy drops none was recorded in Oobar or Wrightville. A eonple of miles northerly and easterly of the town, however, heavy rain fell. The old town reservoir received 90 cointB. while along the road to Ganbelego to about the 18 mile peg a very heavy storm waB experienced, and it is esti mated two or three inohes of rain fell in plaoes. At the fonr mile and on the flats fenoes were washed away. Ganbelego missed the storm. Thun derstorms the same evening resulted in 167 points for Nymagee and about two inohes at Shuttleton, but we have heard of no other reoords. Sunday and Monday were bright, fine days. On Tuesday it olouded up from the south west and .looked promising, but all indications of rain have now disappeared for the time being.

I Since the commencement of the twelfth century nearly eight million tons of cop per have beon extracted from their ores, and have been consumed in the chief manufacturing countries of tho world. The valjie of tho metal, at an average price of £60 per ton for the whole period, is £481,000,000, or nearly two-thirds of tbe National Debt. Mr. John B. ('. Kgrshaw, writing in 'Engineering,' wants to know: How long can the earth continue to supply this enormous amount of copper, or to keep pace with tho in creasingly rapid growth in tho demand for tho red metal! It would certainly seem probable that within the lifetime of most of the readers of this note — or within the next twenty years — the 'known' oro reserves of the existing mines will be worked out, and that un less now ore deposits of vast extent are discovored, copper will becoino one of the rare and more costly metals before half the century is 'passed away. How evor, by that time som...
