RAIN MAKING AN AUSTRALIAN CLAIM. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919

RAIN MAKING. AN AUSTRALIAN CLAIM. LONDON, Saturday.-Meteorologi- cal Office experts discredit the re- port that the Australian Department is able to "materially stimulate rain- fal by scientific means."   One official declares that it must be misreported, as such claims hitherto have been made only by humbugs. He added:-"If we cannot stimulate the moisture-laden atmosphere here, it is   not likely to be done with the Aus- tralian clear skies." It is a fact that Australia has for years past been paying for rain-making experiments, and that the officer-in charge Mr. Balsillie, now claims to be able to "materially stimulate" rainfall by scientific means. The Act- ing Prime Minister, hard-headed busi ness man as he is, was sufficiently im- pressed by the progress made six months ago to authorise the continu- ance of research work.

SPREYTON. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919

SPREYTON.   Fire-A fire occurred on Saturday   afternoon at Mr.H. A. Dúmbleton's   orchard, by which some four chains of paling fence along the railway line were destroyed.

The blaze spread rapidly, and the fire was noticed by railway of- ficials, who communicated with Mr. Dumbleton at Devonport. The latter   telephoned Mr. Hugh Smith, who sent a party out to combât the flames. Mr.   Eric Walpole also cycled to the fire from the racecourse. The action of   the fire fighters saved the homestead   and also the' orchard from destruc-       tion.
