In other words he thinks of the oil age iu terms of petrol. But the expert is now warning us of a change. Wv must think, in future, of the oil age in terms of fuel 'oil. AVhen heavy crude oil from the well iw uistilltMl, and' tlio put'rol is vapor- f ised off, black 'residual' oil, which we broadly call' 'fuel oil' is left in ' the still. This fuel oil is p.roduced, of course, in much larger quantities 1 than petrol. About fifty-eight per'ceut of every barrel of crude oil produced Is accounted for by the content of fuel oil.'

STRONGER WOOL MARKET. REGAIN OF CONFIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 27 January 1925

STRONGER WOOL MARKET. REGAIN OF CONFIDENCE. Vi'inehcoinlie Carson & Co. report : — The wool market has apparently found i(s bearings. Uneasiness as to tlie course of values, is showing n mueli healthier tone. As anticipated the re duced basis of rates latterly ruling L'or the better class of fleece wools lias at- I traded a fresh How of orders. I n is evident tluit the decline iu prices was not prompted by any «pe eial setback which had occurred in tex tile manufacturing circles. A 'degree of fear, caused by the high levels to which prices for super wool had mounted \vas no doubt, the cause. Experience of the 1920-21 'boom and hurst' In the fine wools 1$ too ripe in memory -to encourage a develop ment of th.it nature. The position of the raw material is certainly far more sound to-day than on that occasion. Millions of bales wore on hand in tlio world at i.liat time.

Another link with the roaring days of the diggings, and with the strenu ous pioneering of the seventies, has been snapped with the passing, in his ,7011k year, of Albert Edward (fami liarly known as Jack) Payne, of Young. An Australian by birth and with the average Australian's love of horses , and outstanding ability in han dling tliem, ho took to the bush early in life, and by association with Cobb and Co's. coaches in the heyday of their existence, helped to blaze many a- bush track and to carry on the ar duous work or transporting passengers and his Majesty's malls over long dis tances.

LOST FEMINISM. Basil Macdonald Hastings, in . an article in the 'Evening Standard,' bewails the tragedy of 'lost fem inism' as brought about by shingled hair. 'In a day we shall not live to see,1 he writes, 'women will nrt longer be beautiful. They have set them selves to annihilate those features which differentiate them from men, ? and feminity is fading into a fragile masculinity. 'The 'present craze, l'or the sup pression of the chief -feminine- charm dates back, of course, --to the suffra gette movement... Women who clam oured for equal privileges with men were always sub-conscious of the clash between their physical beauty and tljeir mental iijoals. fl'he.v stamped their feet in their bedrooms with rage over their prettiness; dragged on for bidding clothes, and flung themselves about the world in the most unwoman ly attitudes. But always and always there was upon their head a cr wn, and this crown marked them to men as obje cts for tenderness and rove ?- ence. This crowning gl...
