Public Opinion. To the Editor WESTERN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 30 December 1914

Public Opinion . To the Editor WESTERN Age. ? Sir. — ' Grajsier' bus a ' tug.' I wonder if it is a tug-boat to take him to Dawson City, where they have no droughts and golden fleece, but goldeu nuggets, and where thoy sometimes shoot one another, and where, too, they also desert their lifelong com panions ? Mr. Grnzior-cinn-rtiatuarant pro prietor, now you bnve taken on the role of Baal em 'a ass, you must find the handling of the undersigned is a vastly different task to handling a little kitty or a soft torn. Your aspersions on tho reliability of tho word of a non-partisan in this, your self-sought biding, brings to mind tho words of tho famous Bobbie Burns, which you might take to heart — if you have one. Oh, would some Power the giftio gio us To see ourselves as other* eco us. Yours, Ke., CHAS. J. WOOLLETT.

Drowned in a Tank. AT WRIGHTVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 30 December 1914

Drowned in a Tank. AT' WRIGHTVILLE. A, sad drowning fatality occurred at Wrightville on Thursday morn ing, whereby a little son -of Alder man and Mrs. D. Geary, aged about 2i years, lost its life. It appears from particulars supplied to the police that Mrs. Geary missed the child, and after searching for it found its dead body floating in a waterhole at the back of the re sidence. As no one .witnessed the accident, there is no evidence as to how tbo little one got into the water, but it is supposed it slipped in while playing about the bank. Much sympathy is expressed .for Mr. and Mrs. Geary in tbeir boroavment. The combined oboirs of the Pres byterian and Methodist Churohes, assieted by friends, visited the Cobar Hospital on Christmas Day, and sang hymns to the patients. Mr. D.

To the Editor Western Age. Sir — I trust I am not encroaching on your valuable space, but 1 would liko you to publish. a few remarks in reference to tbo controversy as to feed depots on stock routes. In falling in with tho views of Mr. Woollett, I have no hesitation in statinc that tho idea is one of utmost value to all people connoctod with travelling stock, and had the idea been put into practice say, five years ago, there would ho no anxiety to people travelling stock now. They would bo assured of at least one feed in twenty-four hours for their stock. I noticed bow wrongly ' Grazier' took the viow of things ; probably he was thinking of losing some cheap country,, and had the idea th&t the whole of the stock routes should be fenced, and not dopots properly ar ranged. Most graziers and drovers think the idea capital, and like most things that aro useful, do not take up with people concerned until too late. Grazier' would have shewn better taste had he avoided personalitie...

SHRAPNEL SHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 6 January 1915

SHRAPNEL SHELL. 'Shrapnel shell,' of which we have heard so much in the preseut war, was the invention of Lieutenant-General Henry Shrapnel, who entered the Royal Artillery iu 1779. It was after ho had served with tho Duke of York's army in Flanders, and somo Jiuie after the siege of Dunkirk, that he invented the form of ease-shot which eventually came to lila- nn inn ITa rotirnri from net'lVO service iu 1825, when the Uovernmeiit recognised his inventive geniuu liy the granting of au allowance of £1200 a year in addition to his Army pension. Shrapnel aro thin cases of tough .steel containing a large number of bullets scientifically .arranged — in the British Artillery 203 and in tho French and German 300— with' a small bursting charge at the base of the projectile. The bursting charge breaks the thin steel ease, when tho bullets sweep forward with the velocity imported to the projectile by the gun. From this we can see how more wounds are caused by shrapnel than by rifle tire. Slir...

DRIVING AWAY MOSQUITOES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 6 January 1915

DRIVING AWAY MOSQUITOES. Closed wolls and cisterns arc favour ite places for 'mosquitoes to deposit their eggs, and for tho purpose of driv ing them away the use of uaplfthalin has been suggestod. Naphthalin, how ever, imports an unpleasant taste and odour to drinking water, so instead of sprinkling it ou the surfaen of the water, after the manner of usiug oil for the purpose of ridding the water of mosquito and gnat larvae, a good j plan is to suspend a bag containing I naphthalin over the water. The readily i volatilized substance will charge the air in auy confined space and drive away the female mosquito thnt solects this plaee for her eggs. The same method might be effectively adopted for the protectiou of dark and damp places about houses. Experiments have shown i that naphthalin vapour 'resulting from natural evaporation is 7alal to larvae iu water as well as to the adult Culox pipiens.
