GENERAL NEWS SYNTHETIC MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 15 January 1914

GENERAL NEWS SSYNTHETIC MEAT. 1{a Belgian scientist, M. Effroot, has k succeeded in producing artificial meat, and this is another advance made by modern chemistry, after the synthesis I. of vegetable extracts or perfumes and 1even the albumens which are the base of living substance. MI. Effront now uses a remarkable process for indus trial preparation of nitrogenous foods at a very low price, and these are said to resemble ordinary meat in a striking degree. He uses different residues of manufactures which are al most worthless, such as brewery or distillery refuse products, and from these he extracts a food albumen. The refuse material is first washed, then Spressed and treated by sulphuric acid and afterward by lime, being then put through other operations which are too long to enumerate, ending by fil tering andl evaporating in a vacuum. The result is a pastry extract which lhas a very pronouncedl taste of meat, and hlas three tiimes the food value of thie latter, owing to its c...

MOLES. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 15 January 1914

MOLES. The name of mole is applied to a small spot or tumour of the skin. It is usually supplied with colour, per haps brown, perhaps red, in excess; it generally rises, above the surface, some times very slightly,- at others in a little mound or lump, and very often it is rendered still mrore unsightly by an excessive development of hair, which may be either very stiff or soft almost like a small furry patch. Oc casionally thley may appear late in life, but they are most probably due to somne defect tlrhat has escaped notice until it has increaised considerably in size. The size anrd- distribution of moles vary very much in different peo pie; they may be quite small, or they may occupy a large surface. When they are small and give little trouble they are best left alone, but when they are so extensive as to be a great dis figurement they should be removed if possible. Electrolysis is often success ful when applied to the removal of coarse disfiguring hairs, anid in some cases this ...

The story relates to a clerto, i brand new motor cycle and an uninterrupted trip out on te lains of MIaidstone. When the eye witness entered on the scene the motor cycle was prone on the ground and- the cleric was kicking it. Another witness, rather struck with this novel treatment ot the cyole, and a little surprised that tihe foot Inflicting such punishment bea longed to a man wearing the cloth, asked why he was kicking the machine. "Oh. they do it in England," was the unex pected answer. "They what?" queried the eye witness, incredulous.
