WILL REVOLUTIONISE WAS. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 20 February 1914

WILL REVOLUTIONISE WAS. Sifrnnr Ulivi has invented a ma chine by which, according to his claim, ammunition depots can . bo blown up at a distance. It projects to any distance rays, designated as "F" rays, at a speed of 360,ODD metres a minut", and the.-o hive the power of causing electric sparks upon all metallic objects with which they come in contact. When the rays are directed upon a battleship eiectrio sparics flash out everywhere in the exterior and interior of the vessel, and the sparks occurring in the am munition magazines cause the ex plosion of the ammunition. It is re ported that the Italian Government has decidcd to purchase the invention. With this discovery and flying ma chines the lion will soon have to lip. down with the lamb whether he likes to or not, as war under existing conditions will be rendered Well-nigh impossible. What use is a dread nought when a person miles away can veritably "strike it with light ning '. and explode all its am munition? BILLIARDS-The co...

AUSTRALIAN LEATHER PRAISED. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 20 February 1914

AUSTRALIAN LEATHER PRAISED. A J.'W." : ' I greet; "J.DS" as a brother when he remarks that Australia should produco tlie best; but I am at a loss to' understand his abuse of Australian leather. His main argument against the article applies really., to-the .English product^ viz., that it.-jj brittle and dry. Most Australian leathers are, on the contrary, what the trade terms "mellow," and that is con sidered a good quality. Further more, English leather.: "is "loaded" up to the hilt-a. feature.-in which the local product shows up very favourably. I'll guarantee that the local product wears better than the imported. I have tasted it by placing English on one boot and Australian on the other, and the local article wins bjOeheths every time. "J.D.S.'' throws a .. boom erang when ho states that the proof s in the prices' paid; Australian leather costs as much as English, and more. I buy both, and pay tor the best English to-day 2s 4d to 2s GJcl per lb. and for the Aus tralian article 2s ...
