Sugar from Old Linen. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

Sugar from Old Linen. There is now in Germany a manu-   factory which turns out daily 1OOOlbs. of pure white sugar made from old   linen. An understanding of the pro- cess helps somewhat to dispel the un- pleasant feeling one experiences on hearing the fact. Clean, old linen     en is vegetable fibrin, and, when treat- ed with sulphuric acid, it is converted into dextrin. This is washed with lime-water, then treated with more acid, and it changes almost immediat- ely and crystallises into glucose or grape sugar, which is so highly valued in the making of rich preserves or jelies. The process is said to be economical, and the sugar is found to chemimcaly the same as in the grape.

GUNNING CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

GUNNING CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS Polling day passed off quickly in Gunning, but before and during the actual polling hours some of the offi- cials had quite a series of exciting events. As M. J. E. Caldwell, presiding officer for Cullerin was just about to set off to his booth, accompanied by his Poll Clerk, Mr. H. Moses, when the shaft of his sulky broke, and the pair were forced to hire a car to reach their polling place by regulation time. After delivering the Collector ballot papers, Mr. D. J. Wheatley of Collector Road, was replenishing his petrol sup- ply from the kerbstone pump at Bail- ey's garage when the fumes ignited. Mr. F. E. Bailey, shut off the petrol, and saved a probable explosion. The car was severely burnt and the bowser looked as if it had been in a furnace. Mr. Wheatley escaped with a singeing of face and burnt coat, and consider- ed himself lucky that he was not blown up. Messrs R. D. Morgan and C. Elliott, returning home from delivering the Bellmont Forest box had...

WORK OF THE ANCIENTS Search for Lost Secrets [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

WORK OF THE ANCIENTS Search for Lost Secrets As all artists know, there are pic- tures 300 years old which need only cleaning to show as clean and light as on the day they were finished. It is doubtful whether any of the pictures painted to-day will last half that time, and experiments are being made to discover the secret of the colours used by the artists of the Middle Ages. One idea is that these painters, who, of course, mixed all their own colours, washed them with the greatest care before using them.   The Romans made cement at least as good as any used at the present day yet this secret was lost for more than 1000 years, and was rediscovered only about a century ago. It was the Ro- mans, too, who made that wonderful pottery called "terra sigillata." This was rediscovered by the Bavarian potter Fischer in quite recent times. Lanolin, the fat made from the wool of sheep, was manufactured and used by the rGeeks 2OOO years ago. Here again the secret was completely lo...

COSTLY, SALT-CELLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

COSTLY SALT-CELLAR. A salt-cellar, made during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and regarded as one of the finest pieces of old silver in existence, was purchased recently by the Victoria and Albert Museum, after negotiations that have lasted for more than a year. The purchase price runs into many thousands of pounds, and the purchase was made possible by the assistance of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, the National Art Collections Fund, and Mr. Edmund A. Phillips. Part of the money came from the Parliament- ary vote for museum expenses.   The salt-cellar is known as the "Vyvyan Salt." It belonged to the Vyvyan family of Trelowarren, Corn- wall. It is designed as a square tower,   supported on four lions. The cover carries a figure of Justice. It has   panels of glass decorated with gold and silver leaf, and bears the London hall- mark for 1592, with an unknown maker's name.

CIVIC CENTRE ADDITIONAL LEASES KEEN INTEREST EVOKED [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

CIVIC CENTRE ADDITIONAL LEASES KEEN INTEREST EVOKED Considerable Interest has been evok- ed by the announcement of the "Can- berra Times" of the intention of the Federal Capital Commission to make available to the public, the balance of the reserved blocks in the second sub- division of Civic Centre. The sale is being looked forward to keenly as an index to the extent to which lease values are increasing in the main centre of the city. It is generally assumed that the upset val- ues set upon the leases by the com- mission will be in excess of the values realised in May last, particularly as some of the blocks then sold have been resold at a substantial advance. The probability of the leases being sold privately has occasioned some disappointment. The preparations for and conduct of an auction sale con- stitute a series of events which serve to focus considerable attention on Can- berra. To the commercialised State capitals the only measure of progress is in terms of money, and the i...

"K.C.'s" WHO SAVE SILK [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

"K.C.'s" WHO SAVE SILK Most people have hoard the phrase "take silk," in connection with the ele- vation of a barrister to the rank of a King's Counsel, and, probably believe that a K.C. always appears in court in a silk gown. This is not the case, how- ever. The K.C. has two gowns, one made of silk, and another of tougher material, known as a mourning gown. This is supposed to have been worn only when the Court, or when the coun- sel personally, is in mourning. Of late, however, many K.C.'s have been "economising" by wearing the mourn- ing gown habitually, except when mak- ing an appearance before the House of Lords or the Privy Council.

MENTAL FITNESS IN GOLF [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 10 September 1926

MENTAL FITNESS IN GOLF (By Herbert C. Jolly) The "professional golfer docs not adopt golf as a profession for what he can get out ol' ii. There are easiei roads to wealth than that which the professional golfer has to tread. He plays .golf because he loves the game. That is 'the first reason for his pro- fessional career, and he gets out of the game, besides s pleasure, just pre Jlscly what he puts Into lt..
