New Cloth. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 19 January 1923

New Cloth. ^Manchester's youngest industry, the manu facture of an acid-proof cloth, is forging ahead. The formula is the invention of a Lancashire man, who, after exhaustive experiments, began production of the ma-, terial in the early part ,of the year. In Starch the weekly output was 400 yards. To-day 4,000 yards are. being manufactur- ed and 'sold each week. Orders are now being dealt with from" America, Canada, Spain, Holland, and Japan. Following a numbervof tests, the chemical njanufactur ers of this country are ordering garments of the hiaterinl for their workpeople.; The British Admiralty have- intimated . their intention of testing the'cloth, and already the G.PÏO. are using aprons made from it. In addition to being acid and water. proof, the cloth is practically. ..unbearable, ; and each day a^new outlet i's being dis-. covered for the product. 1

That there is a real :, dangeiv. of:-a seriqus spread of the disease is evidenced by the fact that of five batch- es, 'pf shaving brushes recently submitted to the health' authorities for examination - three were infected with anthrax and thes " remainder belonged to types previously found to be -infected.

DEATH BY POISONING.       TRAGIC DEATH OF MISS G. CARR.   Quite a gloom was cast over the town on Friday night of last week (says the "Barcoo Independent," Blackall) when it became known that Gwendlyn Carr had died as the result of poison, self-inflicted. The deceased was very popular, and was employed bt Mr. D. Rider, Union Hotel, as barmaid. She went about her work dur- ing the day as usual, although it was noticed that she seemed to be worrying. After tea she went to town with her mo- ther, and after returning to her room at the hotel, cleared out. Her mother, be- coming alarmed, as her daughter had threatened, when in a depressed mood, several times to take her life, got a couple of men to follow her, but for a moment they lost trace, but when eventually found           she had already taken poison, near the water trough on the common.
