GREAT INVISIBLE INVASION. DEADLY BLOWS FROM 500 MIL[?] AWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 24 March 1916

GREAT INVISIBLE INVASIOJ DEADLY BLOWS JTROM 500 MIlJ^. AWAY. I I By ITred. T. Jaue. Many years ago the Kaiser declaimed that Germany's future lay on the water. It does; and a very black future it is! On land the Kaiser has parried every blow, lie ha# conquered Belgium, portions of Bus sia, and is now busy exterminating Serbia. No hostile army has done more than here and there check his victorious advance. Yet on the throat of the Gemini Empire is an invis ible hand, slowly throttling it to death— the hand of the British Navy! But for the British Navy the Kaiser %vould by now be Emperor of Europe and possibly of most of the rest of the world. Years ago he saw the shadow across his path, the one possible obstacle to his dreams. That is why any public man in the past who declared that the British Navy was "too big" could draw practically unlimited Ger man gold for the asking. Not directly, of course, for the Kaiser is no fool. As often as not, perhaps, the Little Navyite apostle knew n...

Referring to the' wounds he- re ceived, he says:-—They have taken the shrap nel out of my shoulder, and -the bullet that went through my right shoulder went through . my back. I think I am lucky to have come out. We were in the front trenches at -r and we started firing bombs ten minutes be fore the attack. I had only fired three rounds before a "coal-box" came and; smashed the gun we had just got out. All our bombs exploded, but only one man was wounded. It was marvellous, as the bombs were filled with the highest explosives we use. Two more guns were then smashed up, so wc ha<? to advance with only one.

DISINFECTION OF SWIMMING POOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 24 March 1916

DISINFECTION OF SWIMMING j POOLS. The danger of the transmission of disease in swimming pools is becoming realised more I prominently with the growing popularity• of | t'hese institutions. The management of pub- j lie baths in such a way as to guarantee a; satisfactory degree of sanitary safety has raised a series of questions involving con struction, equipment, water source and supply, and personal hygiene. Calcium hypochlorite has been highly recommended for disinfecting and has been adopted for many pools. Its efficiency as a disinfectant for the water is not doubted. Its use, however, gives rise to frequent complaints on account of the dis- j agreeable odour attending it. This has led j to much experimentation in search of an i equally efficient and less offensive substitute. ! The difficulties here referred to are decidedly j greater in connection with swimming pools j than with public water supplies. For the treatment of the latter, more, than two parts per million of hypochlo...
