FROM MILDURA TO CALIFORNIA AND BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 January 1914
5 ROM MILDURA TO CALI FORNIA AND BACK. Two prominent Mildura settlers have just returned from an ex tended holiday abroad, during which each visited California, Yrhero the industries are very similar to those of the Murray settlement. Mr E. J. Roberts, ?who, besides being a grower, is the proprietor of a packing factory, was greatly impressed with the use) made of refrigerator care in' conveying Californian fruit to tbe Eastern markets. Without this method the fresh fruit trades would be of very email dimensions- With a olmilar provision it would he possible to put the entire peach crop of Mildura on the Melbourne market. Speaking of the great Cali fornian "frost," M r Roberts in formed the "Cultivator" the trouble was due to an electrical ?wind rather than to frost in tho ordinary acceptance of the term. It would be hard to estimate the real damage, but he saw orobardo of twenty years'growth that had been completely wiped out. On ono large estate the proprietary aria, putting up ai...

COST OF WAR. Ca!an«l Henke, a well-knowa Ger man Authority . on war and. economies, published recently a remarkable study of the cost of war. Ho shows conclu sively .that a war would no more ruin « great State to-day than it did in the past, and that Germany would not Jm..seriously, hit by a year- of warfare. The oosi of a year'a war to a power which lias 3,000,000 men in the field, would not bo more than £550,000,000, or about ten shillings per day per man. This would include the first heavyf cost of mobilisation, extra fortification works, otc.

BALDNESS CURED BY FREEZING [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 23 January 1914
BALDNESS CURED BY FREEZING Can baldness be cured by cold j atmospheric treatment? This is a | question that has been occupying- the attention of scientists. . . Sir Ernest Shackleton, the'explorer,. ' laid stfess.upon the fact that .many of the men in his expedition before their sojourn in the Antarctic regions were | remarkable for the thinness of their '. locks. They had barely been a few weeks in the frozen South, however, than their hair began to grow, and when they returned from their expedi tion all had hair remarkable for its thickness and luxuriance. It has been remarked also that . nearly all the men who work the j greater part of the day in cold storage j rooms have good heads of hair. I The laws of Nature would seem to emphasize the fact that cold is favour-, able to the growth of hair. . Take) the i case of the animals. In no countries j of the world is their fur so thick and . luxuriant as in the frozen Arctic re-' gions. By a special dispensation of , Providence the an...
SOUND WAVES TELL COURSE OF PASSING SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 23 January 1914
SOUND WAVES TELL COURSE OF PASSING SHIP. . A device for determining1 the direc tion of movement of a passing: ship in 1 time of fog- or darkness gave satisfac tory results in recent tests at Liver pool, England. This apparatus sim ply registers the directions from which . the sound waves come in successive blasts of a steam whistle or fog horn. The receiver, mounted in the rigging: ' of the receiving ship, is shaped like a drum, and has cells, each of which I is sensitive to sound waves coming from one direction only. These cells | aie electrically connected with small j electric lamps on an indicator board, J a lamp being lighted as the corre sponding1 cell receives a sound impres-1 sion. By the consecutive lighting of , these lamps the course of the passing . vessel is calculated. In case signals are heard from several ships simul-1 taneously, groups of cells for certain directions can be switched out as re-; quiied. ~ .
SLEEP IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 23 January 1914
SLEEP IN CHURCH. Clergymen will be glad to hear that it is" not the sermon that sends the listener to sleep. I According to the "Religious Telescope," the' offioial- organ; of the-United . Brethren, of.Ravton, i Ohio, somnolence is often due to tbe: sober color scheme of the. oburch. The' dull colors w bidh, prevail, especially, brown, are. soporofic. ' ; "The Wages of Sin, as we know from St- Paul, and an eminent lady novelist who has added her authority, is Death," says Vernon Lee in the " Nation." " There ; ia another of the universe's economio principles, less fre quently inculcated by moralists, who leave the teaching thereof to the less august methods of every day experience. The Wages of flurry, I should sum it up, is Perfunotoriness- To which may be added that, as perfunotoriness implies unreality,, ifc is, in oo far, equivalent to failure."j"
COFFEE FROM DRIED FIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 23 January 1914
COFFEE FROM DRIED FIGS. / . ? - ? / ' Ii ts claimed that an excellent coffee can be made from dried and roasted figs, which need not be of the first quality. They are dried in the sun,' or in evaporating: pans, according1 to cli mate, and thou roasted in ovens "till brown, or almost black and quite brit tle. They are then ground up, and the resultant powder is pressed into tab lets. These must be kept dry. When made use of they are merely dissolved in hot water. One hundred kilos of the dry figs give seventy-five kilos' of the dry powder. The figs cost 1C franc's, and the powder sells for CO francs wholesale, and one hundred or more at retail, so that the trade ought to be profitable if a demand can be cre ated. The beverage is said to be agreeable in color and flavor, with a somewhat sweeter taste than that made from chicory.
