The Effect of Freezing upon Impurities Contained in Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 April 1891

The Effect-of Frceezing upon im puritics Contained in Water. The extent to which ice is used makes'its importance in relation .to health almost as great as that of water. An idea prevails that ice cannot be impure, from whatever source it is obtained, as it is supposed to. " purify itself" in freezing. About all tbatis thought of is temperature, and as lonbg as ice is cold little else is considered. -lHereis an error that has been the cause` of much, mischief, aud as the ieed drinks a?re sipiped, their re freshing coolness drives away all thought of possible imnurities, just. as candies are eaten and the quality, of sweetness is all that is desired or considered.:. Regarding the eteert of freszing upon impurities in water the Massachusetts Board of Health has published experiments, e.s stated by Public II'.e.h, with seventy-six samples of water and :135 samples of ice from 5S localities. In ice from pol.uted sources compared with water from the same, the experiments showed: 1. That ...

Ipoetry. A 1,IE7 .7 --I HEART. The merry heart goes all the day; It goes and never tires, Free to bestow Much warmth and glow S rom out its hidden tires. Though days are lo0., Ard nights are drer, And all around is sadncas, Tihe merry heart With songs of cheer Bestows the light of gladness. When other hearts are cut of tune, And tinged ith melanr.choly, Tired of 11h strife And toil cf lfe, And quick to frown at flly, The merry bratt, With courage still, Goue bri and is not weary, And evcry day, In every ill, Sees something bright and chccry. 0 rather than a erown of gold, Andrankl and honours groat, Beyond coiparo, And rich and vwast estate, I'd much prif re: A. mcrry heart, With lauthter al all -buble, That strives its j >y ,-,,And hIp? ti' ipart, And sings its way throrghi trouble.

THE CRICKET SEASON. DOWN WITH THE CURTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 April 1891

THE CRICKET SEASON. DOWN WITI THEI CURTAIN. T'le cricket season, so far as Colburg is concerned, is now virtually over, and after a gallant fight our local cricketers have returned home vanquished, but not by any means dismayed. Last year the close of the season brought with it a much more faivorable result, and flubhted with victory the Coburg succeeded in carrying off Boyle and Scott's Cup. The competition during the past few months has been e-seedingly keen, and has done muchl to revive the interest: which in cricket was fast dying ohit. Coburg statted badly, having the nmis fortune at the outset to lose the match against Malvern, but on meeting repre sintatives of that suburb for tke second time, decisively turned the tables. The second defeat was that witnessed last Saturday, when, after a three days' match agaitnst the Ornlond, the shire lost by tan innings and seven runs, and are thlerefore out of the suntest. When the stumlps were drawn on the preceding Saturlday the guame s...

Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 April 1891

?icciIpeS. Recipe for Yeast.--\e have the best authority that the the llowing recipe, strictly followed, will give "perfect" yeast. Boil one large teacupful of hops from 20 minutes to one half hour, in three pints of water. Strain the water upon three cupfuls of grated raw potato, stirring well. Continue stirringit over the fire until it just begins to boil. then remove and add one teacupful each of salt and sugar. When luke-warm add one teacupful of risen }east. In making bread, one teacupful of this yeast is used to two quarts of flour. However, as our cor respondent did not wish to use the yeast for bread, it may be that the beer or brewers' yeast, generally to be obtaint d fromt the bakers will answer the desired purpose better, as it is usually quicker and stronger.

Improvement in Photo-Etching [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 April 1891

lmnprovclncmnt in I'hoto-Etchinl The Papier Zeitnn , of Berlin, announces that adiscovery has just been made at etch ing, and especially in.photogravure.. As usual, the drawing'is traced on a plate of zinc, either by an-artist or by photography, with any suitable etching ground. This ulate, barcked with asphaltum is laid in a bath of dilute acid. :Itis thenput-in circuit with a dynamo, the other pole being merely placed' in the acid.' When a currrit' is allowed to pass, the acid attacks-the metal with surprising rapidity. A few minutes ufllice6o bite the plate, and the deptliof the etchingcandbe easily controlled.. ]t appears to us that the action is probably due to the depolarisation of the surface of the metal, which in the ordinary method, of. etching becomescovered with a film of lhydrogen, or, at tll events, with a sitember of minute bubbles, which make the biting irrenular unless the plate is incessantly rocked and brushed. -
