CORRESPONDENCE. [It must be distinctly understood that while we are at all times happy to insert correspondence we do not in all cases endorse the remarks of the writer. ] TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEPEAN TIMES Sir,-Do ,you not think that the Government would display great wlisdomli by putting a stop to the prac- tice of allowing a third class police officer appearing as Crown Prosecutor In Country Police Courts, or perhaps the Attorney General's attention might be drawn to the swagger indulged in by some of these men when in Court, and to their demeanour towards Attorneys practising in those Courts. It appears   to me, Mr Editor, that in some cases which I have lately witnessed, this "bossing of these officers" is     only assumed for the purpose of irritating Attorneys, thereby endeavouring to cause them to miss a point or cause them in their natural excitement brought on by such "pettifogger's interruptions," to accidently offend the Bench and th...

NOVEL BALLOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1883

NOVEL BALLOONS. NEW light has been thrown on the construo tion and management of balloons by an ex periment lust week which shows the way how an important change in aerial navigation may be effected. Hitherto it has been con sidered that gas only is snitable for their in flation ; for th« old fashioned fire baloon, which acq aired its asconding power by the rarefied air produced bp a furnace of burning straw at the neck or lower part of the bajf looh was too dangerous for practical pur poses. If a balloon could be constructed of some uninflammable material, all the diffi culties of ascent by means of rarefied air would be overcome, and balloon ascents, whether for scientific or warlike purposes, would be practically useful. Asbestos, it seems, is the substance that may be made available for the pnrposo, for experiments which took place on Tuesday week at Hen don proved that it is the material to be used. A balloon had boon constructed, the whole of the lower part of which is of very...

THE ACTION OF SALIVA IN THE STOMACH. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1883

THE ACTION OF SALIVA IN THE STOMACH. NUMEROUS samples of gastric juioo pumped "o'it of the stomachs or healthy persons, at different stages of the digestive process, have shown that during* the early stages no hyd rochloric can be detected, even when the fluid is strongly acid. The period at which this acid first makes its appearance varies in different individuals and with a mixed d et, seems to depend primarily upon the quan tity of food taken. After a light breakfast the hydrochloric acid will be found in three quarters to one hour, but after a full dinner it does not appear for two hours. ' " Industrie Blatter" says that Reinard von den Yeldon has been expeiment'ng upon the effect that saliva has on the gastric juice. These experiments showed that when starch paste was mixed with aoid gaatrio juice (free from hydrocblorio acid), and fr«Bh saliva added, the mixture at once imparted a light yellow colour to. an aqueous solution of iodine in iodide of potassium.
