Solid Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

Solid Milk. The markets of Irkusk, in Siberia, are an interesting Bight, for the pro- ■ ducts offered for sale are in most cases frozen solid. Fish are piled up | in stacks like so much cord-wood, ' I and meat likewise. All kinds of fowl , I are similarly frozen and piled up. ! ' Some animals brought into the mar-! ket whole are propped up on their legs, and have the appearance of bo- ; ing actually alive, and as one goes through the markets one 4?eems to be surrounded by living pigs, sh'eep, ' oxen, and fowls standing up. Bui J stranger yet, even the liquids are j frozen solid and sold in blocks. Milk is frozen into a block in this way and with a string or stick frozen into and ' projecting from it. This, it is Baid, ! is for the convenience of the pur- ■ chaser, who is thus enabled to carry j his milk by the string or stick han dle. v , . .

Zinc in War Time. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

Zinc in War Time. . . *—-— Zinc is very essential in war time. It is a constituent of cartridge brags and shellfuses", and; is used also as a covering/for iron barbed-wire fencing. In 1913 the United States, Germany, and .Belgium were the leading produ cers of zinc.. Of ..the ' three, only the United States smelted domestic ores. Bel gium knd Germany relied mainly on zinc concentrates that' they imported from Broken Hill mines in New South Wales, where, for' one reason and another, it does not pay to do' the smelting. France, Spain, and Gi'eat Britain also produce substan tial quantities, but not enough to supply their, own needs. Austria and Germany have • considerable deposits of ore in Silesia, Hungary, Carin thia, and the Tyrol. As the zinc smelting furnaces of Great Britain are not well adapted for dealing with the Broken Hill concentrates it buys the bulk of.its supplies from the United States.

Fokker Facts. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

Fokker Facts, The Germans use a special aero plane, a Folcker monoplane, for fight ing and for pursuit of aeroplanes, it' being specially adopted for this work' by reason of its very high speed. It, is not allowed to expose, itself on reconnaissance work. In contrast to the arrangement of our aeroplanes, the machine-gun on the Fokker is immovably fixed, in front of the.pilot. *with barrel straight to the-front— the correct aim of the gun being; in sured by manipulation ' of the whole machine, just as the correct aim of a' torpedo from a ^submarine is con trived only by manipulation of-the boat itself. ... The Fokker'b machine-gun being fixed,'and fixed on the same , plane as the'body of the machino, fires through the propeller. Such bullets as miss the propeller naturally "carry straight to the front ; . while such as are in tercepted by its blades are dispelled by angled and bullet-proof "devia-' tors'' attached to the back face of these' blades. .

ARBITRATION COURT AWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

f ARBITRATION COURT f AWARD. In the Commonwealth Arbitration ; Court on Friday last, Mr Justice Powers delivered his award in the matter of the claims of the Federa ted Mining Employees' Association against the Oswald Gold Mines and the South German Company, Mal don, and the Gre&t Cobar Limited,; New South Wales. In reference to the Cobar Com pany Mr Justice Powers increased the adult wages from 9s to 10s 6d, and reasonable increases for other classes of work, with shorter hours and better conditions, would, he hoped, result in the work being carried on peacefully and satisfac torily to all parties concerned, and enable the company to add to the supply of copper so urgently re quired during the war. i" In his award Mr Justice Powers ' said that the respondents in Vic toria dtd not object to the adult wage and other rates and conditions fixed in the previous award made on December 24th, 1915, to be ob served by the mine owners of the Bailarat and Bendigo districts.

Hearts are Pumps. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

Hearts are Pumps. „ It is an astonishing fact that every heart beats thirty-six million6 of strokes every twelve months, work ing, resting, or sleeping. In that period it does work sufficient to fire with their present velocity a dozen of the largest projectiles used in war, or to lift a light cruiser clean out of the' water. If such is the energy of a single man's heart, what is the aggregate force of three million men in heart beats ? If it were concentrated into one explosion it would be sufficient to destroy utterly the German Navy and the Kiel Canal. , Such an explosion operating in a moment of time, has never been en gineered by man, although Nature has exceeded it many times in her volcanic energies. To put it another way, the hearts of three million men force a broad river of blood, nine hundred feet wide and six feet deep, over a course oi seven miles in a single hour, and in the course of a day as far as from Liverpool to Edinburgh, and in a week- as far as from Paris to C...
