OPTIMISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
OPTIMLISTS. "Theyimake the best of everything, especially of bully beef, which is their daily unvarying fare. Ttas, I learn, nothing more nor less than the best Ar gentino beef, packed in tins weighing Sa'.pound, one being a man's daily ra tions. It'is ready cooked, but some of the men, naturally skilful, make out of it-varied dishes.' The officers who share with their men the bully beef at lunch and dinner generally manage to geot a. rasher of bacon served with their morn ing tea. It is always tea, no coffee. Native bread is a scarcity in Flanders, and the British troops are' served from the produce of camp kitchens rigged up in the rear. Food is in abundance, all of 'excellent quality."-Sir Henry Lucy (London) in "S.M. Herald.'t -

BACTERIA AND LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
BACTERIA AND LIFE. In the course of an address given by Professor Emil Westgaard before the iRoyal Scottish Society of Arts on 'The Influence of Bacteria on" Life,' the speaker pointed out that the name "bac teria" was, in the minds of most peo ple, associated with a feeling of danger, or at least of something unpleasant, ow ing to the fact that those minute or ganisms wore responsible for many of the most dreaded diseases, and not.in frequently attaclhed and destroyed their 'foodstuffs.- Bacteria had, however, oth er and far greater functions to carry out, and by decomposing and ultimately oxidising organic matter, they cleared these dead substances away, and con verted them into :simple inorganic pro ducts, which might be used again by plants. "n:. this manner the carbon and nitrogen circulation was completed, and the bacteria wereo thus responsible for what was the - foundation of the ,orld's food supply....

THE SLAV AND THE BRITON. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
STHE SLAV AND THE BRITON. 'ir. H."G; Wells, the novelist, who has recently returned from a brief. sojourn in Russia "is: much impressed by the fact that there is muel ?physical resemblance .b6tween Englishmen. and Russians. "'So far. as the looks of things go,'?.. he, is' riiorted to .haveosaid, "'the like hess 'surprises me. Russians certainly look more like Englishmen than any .oth er people I have ever been among. They not 'only look like Englishmen, but they move like Englishmen; they hold their 'hands and arms and sit in chairs like Englishmen, and their disposition in cos tume is English. . Y And' the. Russian 'woinen are Eng lish, too, with a kind of natural fresh ness' and an inattention to 'smartness that contrast vividly with the French'or Alnerican woman. They are far 'more. English that the'' Americans' in' style; carriage, and intonation. You can tell whether people.talking in the next room' are English or American, but not wheth-' er they are English' or Russian."'
DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN.'' ; lt is proverbial' that''.-' the .'darkest hour precedes 'the dawn." Mr. WV. F. Denning, the .English, atithority ' on meteors,] hap recently called attention, to the literal accuracy of this. proverb, as established by his. own observations on: thousands of nights. He says: ':Before dawn a greater . darkness seems to drop down like a mantle upon the inmmediat'e surroundings. Objects -which were plainly observable during the previous hours of the night are blot ted out, and a nervous feeling is. some times induced by the denise opacity of the air." He claims to have noticed this phenomenon when the subject was fair from his thoughts, so that it. could :.'ot have been purely subjective. He, is unable to state the exact interval be:, f;ore sunrise when the remarkabloe dark 'ness' comes on, nor whether it is coin mein to each season and sky conditions.

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

Farmers ale beginning to show more wrinkles. The ploughing sea son is on them and no rain. Even when the rain does come it will take some time before there is feed. It is really a- case of "Live sheep till the grass grows !" Shearers are advertised for in this issue to shear 13,ooo sheep at Cuppa cumbalong in March.

MARINE OIL SPREADER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
M UIINE OIL 8PREADER, The value of oil for calming rough seas has long been recognised. The rea son it is not more extensively used is probably because few vessels are pro vided with special apparatus for distri buting the oil properly. When in time of extreme distress a vessel finds it neces sary to use some method of quieting the waves, the only means of distributing the oil is to pour it down the scuppers, or as is sometimes done to fill a canvas bag with oil, perforating the bag so that the oil eau escape, and hang. the bag over the side of the ship. Sometimes a hose is used to distribute the oil. The difficulty with those methods is that'the oil is discharged in the wake of the drifting ship, and as the oil spreads com-: paratively slowly, the ship is constantly moving out of the quieted area. Re cently, H. W. Stocking, of San 'Francisco, has devised an oil distributing apparatus which permits of distributing the' oil where needed, and tfar enough from the vessel to quiet the s...
INFLUENCE OF CHEMICALS ON GERMINATION OF SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
INFLUENCE OF OHEMIOALS ON GERMINATION OF SEEDS. JFarmers and gardeners sometimes soak seeds in various saline solutions, or fumi gate them with certain vapours, in order to preserve the seeds and protect them from insects. This process should not he applied ignorantly, for, while some, ch,,micanl agents accelerate the germina tion of seeds, others retard or even pre vent it. The neutral salts of the alkali metals produce very remarkable effects on seeds. A - per cent. solution of po tassium chloride prevents germination, and a 1-10 solution of an alkaline nitrate lroduces the same result. The toxic effect, which is probably due to a reaction between the salt and the. proteid constitueints of the proto plasm, is strongest in the salts of caesium and lithium, "and weakest in those of subidiumn. Roots dipped in the saline solutions are very strongly attacked. On the other hand germination is ac ceolrated by very small doses of the sulphates of caesium, lithium and subi diumr. The stren...
COMING DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915
COMING DOWN. , "Rents have dropped very mater ially; many houses are empty -in the outer suburbs, and the building trade has slumped. These are facts, and it is useless to deny them. The situation will soon mend if it is frankly faced. People are economising, and that is good. They are saving money, and they have given a severe check to:the wild land boom that was threatening to en gulf M\elbourno before the. war. Rents generally are down 10 to 20 per cent., and we are living 'a thriftier, safer,' life."-'IMelbourne "Table Talk."'
