ClIAPTKlt XXII. No night in Bebe's life had ever dragged like? this one, on which she hnd united for her lover's com ing and united in vain. "I don't tmdcrct.nm] it.," .she had said nnd thought a hundred times. "If he had not sent an answer hack liy Hugglos, 1 should not think it so strange. Something must have hap pened—something very unlooked-for and very important." The pretty face was clouded, nnd her heart very heavy. Vidn and Sidney treated the matter lightly, lie hnd been called out of town, per haps—some business hnd prevented —it would be explained in the morning. But dinner was u doleful meal.

The niifht passed almost silently. Sidney had manv letters to write, preparatory to ins departure a...

ASEPTIC PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

ASEPTIC PRESERVING. Foodstuffs lo 'be preserved by the aseptic-storage process lo hermetic closure and the oxygen of the Hir is replaced by n» antiseptic gAS. After a few hours, when the Con tainer as well as its contents have become sterilised, the antiseptic gas is removed by pumping it through an absorbent for that pas, without breaking the seal, so thnt. the food is left in residual slerile nitrogen. To prevent evaporation, a low pres sure is produced by pumping in slerile nitrogen or carbon dioxide. The machinery used for such a re frigeration system is a 2-h.p. mo tor, two pumps, and the necessary fittings. Two days' operation of the plant is all that is required, re gardless of the length of period the food is to be kept. The inventor of the apparatus claims that foodstuffs so preserved will keep for years at ordinary temperatures without eva poration or shrinkage. This sounds tempting, but still we prefer fresh foods.
