QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 13 February 1914
QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED Quinine, the price of which has just been advanced, is one of a number of drugs -whose values are not wholly gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. Tho drug is obtained from Cinchona bark, which is no named because it was introduced into medicine in 1638 by Countess Chtnchon, the wife of the Viceroy of Peru, who was herself cured of a fever by its aid. In the whole sale drug markets the bark is still call ed Chinchona, but the pharmacopoeial name is Cinchona. Until comparatively recent years the supply of bark was obtained from South America, and it is in fact still commonly known as Peruvian bark. But about fifty years ago an Eng lish traveller obtained some Cinchona seeds and brought them to England, where they were eventually bought by the Dutch Government. They were planted in the Island of Java, and af ter a long series of experiments the Dutch Government succeeded in culti vating trees which will yield two or even three times as much quinine as the ...

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 13 February 1914
AMERICAN TRADE 1 more unemployment jthan since 1907. President Wilson expects to sign the Currency Bill in about a fortnight, so that the nation may have this long wished-for and much discussed mea sure for giving greater freedom and flu idity to credit as its Christmas present for 1013 (says the New York correspon dent of "Tho Daily News," December 9). The delay in inducing- the Senate to end its deliberations, due to the bank ers' fear that the Bill would estab lish too much political control, has been one of the chief obstacles to the general resumption of business activity. Indeed, industrial conditions, as indicated by the railway returns, the investment market, and the number of laborers out of work, are extremely depressed. It is stated that there are more unem ployed in the Middlo West as well as the Eastern States than in any year sincc 1907. This applies particularly to railways, in consequence of the re trenchment policy by most of the com panies, while reports from Chica...

WONDER OF LIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 13 February 1914
WONDER OF LIGHTS "If you had gone to sleep seventy years ago and awoke to-day what, would be the most astonishing thing? "In his 'Mid-Victorian Memories' Mi R. E. Francillon answers the question •It Is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light. The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, thc paraffin lamp, which smelt horribly, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago the light of the home was a candle or two encouraged by snuffers. And this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzled by the electric lights that turn midnight Into noonday. Our houses and streets have abolished night," says "The Westminster," "and the coming of light would be the wonder of thc man who had gone to sleep with a tal low candle and waked to—turn on the switch."

KAISER ON "OUR PROGRESS" [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 13 February 1914
KAISER ON "OU!t PROGRESS" The Emperor and Empress to-day visited the Rathaus. and were wel comed with an address (says Reu tcr's Munich correspondent on Decem ber 10.) In his reply the Emperor said: "Almighty God willed that it should be vouchsafed to our fathers to sow on the blood-drenched battlefield the seed which has borne such glorious fruit. The paths for all German races to un hindered development of their ideal and material forces wc-re then mado smooth for all the German tribes. In addition to these favorable preliminary conditions, the present generation had enjoyed the blessings of a long and un disturbed peace. "Perhaps there is justification for asking seriously whether this favor of the times is being rightly used, whether the sons are worthy of the fathers, whether our patri mony is being properly developed even under the strong protection of our splendid defence force on land and water." Tim Emperor said a glance at the enormous progress of Munich was cal culated to...

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE [ Drastic regulations to meet the cel | luloid danger arc made in the report of the Departmental Committee (Eng land) which has been considering- the matter. The proposals (says "The Daily News") are calculated to excite alarm among the public and to re volutionise the trade. The danger to the purchasing pub lic, it is pointed out, Is increased by the fact that in many cases the na ture of the substance is not apparent, and the committee urge that some such words as "Celluloid, inflam mable," should be marked on or at tached to such articles and toys. Boots and shoes, parts of which other than the eyelets and hooks are coated with sheet celluloid, or to which celluloid buckles are attached, should not be sold without an Indi cation to this effect. Special risks attach to wearing celluloid in the hair. It is recommended that local autho rities should issue warnings to shop keepers as to the dangerous proper ties of celluloid. The amoun...
