HOW PINS DISAPPEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 January 1914
HQJV PINS DISAPPEAR. For many years the world has been baffled by the problem of where the pins go that are turned out In millions of millions by the pin factories. But the problem seems to have bepr solved at last. A Paris scientist Xavier, has been experimenting on pins, hairpins, and- needles by the simple^ process of watching a few. He states that they practically disap? pear into thin air, by phanging ijitg ferrous oxide, a hrownish rust that soon blows away in dust. An ordinary hairpin took only "154 days to blow away. A steel niS lasted just under fifteen months. A common pin took eighteen months to vanish. A polished steel needle defied the ravages of the atmosphere longest, taking \wp' and sf half years to disap pear So the reason why (hp vfPild i$ not g foqt fleep ty the j^ins i? tjuys is, it seems, pxactly. the sqine which an iron surface scale off when exposed for a long time to the atmosphere with out the protection of paint.

COFFEE AS A DISINFECTANT [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 January 1914
COFFEE AS A DISINFECTANT An expensive and effective disin fectant for the sickroom is made by putting in a saucer some freshly ground coffee and lighting a piece of camphor on top of it. As this burns it emits the odour of roasting cof fee, an aroma that is agreeable to . most people. This perfume has the advantage) of being healthful, and is to be .preferred to the pastilles and incense' powders, which to some are very unpleasant. The odour of the coffee will counteract any bad aroma in the room, and the fumes of the camphor will'kill ordinary disease germs that may be floating in the air.

Except for clean ing and a few necessary repairs it has never- stopped during a period of more than five centuries. It strikes the hours and chimes the quarters.

FEDERAL SITUATION. QUESTION OF DOUBLE DISSO LUTION. As an outcome of the protracted Commonwealth Cabinet meeting held last week-it occupied two days-the prospects o£ a dissolution of both the Senate and the House of ' Re presentatives. are increasing. Though Ministers declino to admit anything ot the kind, there is reason to believe that tho Cabinet decided that Parliament should be called together m tho early autumn, in order to pro vide legitimate and constitutional grounds on which the Prime Minister may ask for a dissolution of both Chambers, of the Legislature. Tho matter was ? discussed by the Liberal members just before the end of last session, and they were so evenly divided in opinion that the Government was authorised to decide as it thought best. The party meet ing was hold just after the victory of the Labor party in the New South Wales State elections. Tho result of those elections made the. New . South.

BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. Mr Fitzpatrick, one of the Railway Commissioners, who recently visited Europe and the United States to study the latest developments of the transport system, haB just presented hia report to the Minister." Amongst the many matters which Mr Fitzpatrick studied was the marketing of wheat. He formed the opinion that the elevator method, which prevails in the United States and Canada, is vastly superior to the out of date bag system which survives in Australia. Still he is somewhat I cautious in his recommendations, for" he knows that the railways were worked at' a loss, and that a commissioner was brought from America to put them on a busi ness footing. They now pay handsomely, and a treasurer is naturally pleased to get the big profit they produce. But the railways were not built by the State as dividend-making con cerns ; if they pay that is enough, and for the rest they should be so conducted as to assist the develop ment ot the country To give Victoria an up...
