FOOD VALUE OF CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 19 August 1911
FOOD VALUE OF CHEESE. A comparison of the food value of cheese with that of other highly ultra, geuous food materials may be of in terostlng value. No kind of meat ex- cepting dried beef carries such a large percentage of protein ns cheese, arni as dried beef contains a much greater percentage of water, the other loud constituents, apart from the proteja, are much less than ls found in cheese. Fresh beef as purchased has, weight for weight, little more than bah tue food valuo of cheese In either protein or fat, and the same Is true of prac- tically all other fresh meats, which have in many cases such a large per- centage of refuse and In all cases such a large percentago of water that they aro noticeably inferior to cheese In food value. Bacon or fat pork are exceptions, but their food value ls mostly in the fat, which caa be and ls replaced to u great extent by Hie carbohydrates of vegetables at a much, less cost, and sometimes, per haps, at a benefit to the health of the l consume...

HOW GLASS-MAKING BEGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 19 August 1911
HOW GLASS-MAKING BEGAN. Glass-making dates from tho earli- est times, and originated, no douM. with the Egyptians, ns the oldest known specimens found are those dis- covered in tho tombs of Egypt, and tito earliest mention dates back to 3300 U.C. Second to the Egyptians, the an- cient people most renowned for thu manufacture of glass were the Phoe- nicians. The legend ot that people concern- ing the discovery of the art ls rnit slstently retold. Some Hioonician tra- ders, returning to their home in a ship laden with soda, were compelled to land on a sandy track on the Syr- ian coast. They built a Ure on the Band to pre. pare their supper, and placed tlu-ir cooking pots on a lump of soda. The sand ami the soda were both molted by the heat of the fire, ami, flowing together, formed a Bubstance which, although they knew lt not, thc sailor-t recognised ns valuable. Such, sass tradition, is the origin of ono of our mest useful commodities.

ELECTRICITY AND BEAUTY. lt romains for the philosopher to dé- cide whether the natures ol men and women as they exist in the electric age will he finer or less line than those that were bred in days of great- er simplicity, harder work, and lesa luxury. Hut this one can say with certainty, that much of thc squalor and tilth, the dirt that makes both buildings and people unseemly and hideous in our great cities, will have disappeared, and their smoky dens will have become as clean and whole* some as a country villa; trees will ¿.row in our city streets, and if en- vironment counts for anything in the development of the human being, one may say without much doubt, tho people will be a brighter, happier, and less sordid mee than they have been under the domain of steam and coal. It is to electrical engineering, we believe, that one must look for much of the progress we hope for In tho beautification of our towns, the preservation of our buildings, and the reduction of useless labor, ¡i...
