STRAW FOR HATS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

STRAW FOR HATS. The greater part of the straw em ployed for making summer hats comes from Italy. To obtain suitable straw for this purpose the wheat is sown as thickly as possible, in order that the growth of the plant may be impoverish ed, as well as to produce a thin stalk. The Italian wheat blooms at the be ginning of June, and is pulled up by the roots, then the grain is half de veloped.. Should it be allowed to re main in the ground a longer time, the straw would become too brittle for its purpose. Uprooted straws, to the number of about five dozen, the size of the com pass of two hands, are firmly tied togeth er and stowed away in barns. After that the straw is again spread out to catch the heavy summer dews and to bleach in the sun.- When the product has been sufficiently bleached it is put into small bundles and classified. The last step is to cut it close above the first joint from the top, when it is again tied up in small bundles contain ing sixty stalks each, and is then...

MAKING WOOD OUT OF STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

MAKING WOOD OUT OF STRAW. If we are to believe the "''Moniteur des Scieries," wood can now be made out of straw, this being a real wood without. grain or knots which can be sawed as usual, and also turned in the lathe. The "woodt" is moulded in the shape, of ,plank; lath and round sticks. In the pro cess which is said to be used in France, straw is cut by machine anid then reduced to paste by a heating process, employing chemical products whose nature is not ex actly known, but probabily caustic soda is used here.'" The pasteeis 'then com pressed in moulds t suitable shaoe. Such product is of the hardness of poplar wood, and can be worked as easily. It burns like real wood, 'bit gives a large flame and little smoke, so that it will find a use in the match-making industry. It'will also be very good for, making light and strong'packing boxes, so that. these two applications will already assure it a wide use in the industry.

THE WORK A WATCH DOES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

THE WORK A WATCH DOES. Out of 'sight' out :of mind is .particu larly. true in regard to the mdehanism of a watch, and even those interested in mechanical spatters seldom. consider the amount of work performed by this little piecq of machinery. Take the balance wheel, for example.. In the average watch this vibrates/ 300.times a minute, 18,000 times' each hour, 432,000 times 'a day and' 187,788,000 times a year. As each vibration covers about one and a half revolutions,-the shaft on which the balance wheel is niounted Isiakes 236,882,. 000 revolutions in its bearings each year. Compare this with a modern loco motive with'-7-foot drivers;,which would have to run 985,824 miles to make an equal number of rev6lutions; and, run illg at the rate of 'a milo.'a minute, without stopping," it would' take 683 days, or nearly 'two years for the axle of the drive wheel of the locomotive to make as many revolutions as the balance wheel shaft= of -the watch does in one year, 'and'it would 'cove' a'...

Correspondence. NATIONAL RIFLE RESERVES. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

Correspondence. NATIONAL RIFLE IESERVES. (To the Editor). Sir,--It is Universally agreed that the war is going to last a long time. Estimates have been given by vari ous writers varying from 12 months to three years, everything depending upon the supply of men, material and food. It is to be a war of at trition-of wearing out, and- it will not end until the defeated side comes to the last ditch and has used up the last resources. Twenty million men are at each other's throats, and there is a -casualty toll of 23,000 a day. The war is costing ten mil lion pounds per week, and it has now (,10th February) been in progrress for 29 weeks. Such a fearful drain upon the world's resources cannot go on indefinitely, but it must go on until Germany has been rendered harmless both from the military and .the commercial standpoint. She hal made herself an outlaw among na tions and must pay the penalty, it it costs the British "Emliire its i~st man. and its last penny. Kitchener has stated that t...

Very slight consideration, in view of the obvious fact that all wars are, in the. first place, "battles of ideas," will show why it is'a World war.

A Rabbit Champion. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

SA _Rabbit Chlampion. Mi. T. WADDELL, in the Assembly last week, had a 'word to say for the rabbit, when the discussion in roference to the meat seizure was proceeding, Mr. Waddell said : "No doubt one, great difliculty that Great "Britain aud her allies had 'to face was jn ,getting a suffioiency of good animal food. Bel gium, they knew, was already suffering terribly because-'of shortage: in this respect. Australia had the opportunity of supplying almost unlimited quanti ties of splendid animal food, in addition to' wheat, by sending large numbers of rabbits, tinned, to England, for des patch to France and Belgium. It seemed a frightful pity that we had countless rabbits going to waste in this country."--At a latter stage, in Com mittee, 'Mr. Waddell again urged that the sending of enormous quantities of good wholesome food in the shape of preserved rabbits would give much useful -employment. Unfortunately, the available supplies of beef and mut ton-were very limited.--Mr. Holman p...

Another Libel Action. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

Another. Libel Action. -MINISTERS are singularly unfor tunate in the scant appreciation of their efforts accorded them by. their own party papers. Not long ago,:Mr D. R. Hall, the Attorney-General, got a verdict foi £500 against the" Worke'.," because of its strictures on his action .in the Lestrange case. Now, Mr.: Griffith, the Minister tor Works, states that he is claiming £1000' damages from " Barrier Truth,",a red-hot-.Labor or gan, for its condemnatin.i of his action in regard to the Broken Hill railway. The Minister says that he will give the1 paper an iopportunity to: prove its as sertion: that he' hung, up :the Broken Hill railway in the interests of the Silverton Tramway Co. ."'Be. ithou chaste as ice,.pure as. snow, thou shalt not escape calumny." - But it is curious that the. statements :complained of should come so uniformly from avowed suppoiters of the Ministers aggrieved.

Valentine's Day. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 February 1915

Valentine's Day. ONE important result of the life-and death struggle in Europe is the stimu lation of ingenuity to do what may be possiblo to show "our boys" at the front that they are not forgotten by those .whom they have left behind. Valentine Day has been made the oc oasion of a special effort to'send little mementoes, not very many of the hideous or silly productions known as " Valentines "--which, happily are falling into well-deserved disuse-but chiefly gifts for 'sick and wounded soldiers in hospital. The response to the appeal, in this behalf, of the Red Cross produce committee, has been es pecially gratifying, hosts of presents, sweets, pipes, tobacco, cigars, walking sticks, boxing gloves, the inevitable cigarettes, and other sundries . too numerous to particularise, having come to hand. The presents will be for warded both to Britain and to Egypt, and will help, no doubt, to hearten up the beneficiaries.

Complete destruction may be in~ store for them; but come what may, if the workers and colonies are destroyed by the Allies, it will be only avenging the destruction wrought by the guns made at Krupp's on some of the finest buildings in Europe. It may revolutionise this mass of workers and free them from the grip of Prussian ism."--J.W.O., in the ''Millgate Month-' ly."

"Thank you,e ' samid Betty, still sleepy ; and then' wondering why" Glen had -not answered the maid as she generally did, sid, "Are you asleep, Glen, dear It is time to get up." But as n0 answer came. she drew back the curtain of her sister's bed, which was close to here. But no Glen was there ! "Glen! Glen! Where are you, dear t" she cried, springing up, and she was just going to look for her in the drepaing-room when a little note on the table attracted her attention. Bhe still thought her sister was playing her some trick for amusement,' and opened the note with a pleased smile on her brightyous.g face.

Correspondence. NATIONAL RIFLE RESERVES. (To the Editor). Sir,-Regarding the Pattiotic Pub lic Meeting held pn Friday night last for the purpose of taking the initia tive for the formation of a Rifle Re serve in Queanbeyan, I would like to point out. that there was evidently some misunderstanding on the part of the promoters of the movement and the members of the local Rifle Club. Of course on seeing the advertisement published, all the members of the local Rifle Club, on reading same, came to the conclusion that there was a movement on foot for the formation of a separate military body, which was no doubt the case. The Secre tary and Committee of the Rifle Club on discussing matters decided to ap proach the promoter of the movement (Mr. H. G. Colman), with a view of gaining further information on the matter. This Mr. Colman agreed to, and a meeting eventuated, between several townspeople and the commit tee of the Rifle Club. After the meeting terminated those present were no furthe...
