PETROLEUM AND SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 18 April 1885

PETROLEUM AND SALT. Sir Lionel Playfair contributes to Good Woris some of the reasons why ! the word 'salt,' as used - in the Bible, often meant what is called- petroleum nowadays; He says : ' Many things become very comprehensible if- we take the generic term salt and apply it to , petroleum and its residue — asphalt. Lot's: wife, if converted into a pillar of common salt, would have been washed away by the first shower of rain ; but a pillar of asphalt, even as a memorial of her; would 'have - been au' enduring monument and, might have be$n! seen ljy ' Josephns and his contemporary, Clement, of Rome, both: of - whom -declare they saw1 it. Soj aleo/when wC arp. told by Mark that ' ever.y/. bfip, shall -be. salted with fire, and every sacrifice ' shall' be salted with salt,' I see a- meaning only when 1 recollect that ' in regions ' con taining petroleum;1 fetoificid 'fires were fed with this, fubl to aid Uie burning.
