THE BRUNSWICK GAS COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 May 1891

THE BRUNSWICK GAS COMPANY. The opening of the Brunswick Gas and Coke Company's works was cele brated on Thursday with much eclut, the proceeding including a formal de claration of the fact by the Mayor of the town, and a banquet, at which a large and representative gathering of local residents and sympathisers with the undertaking, from neighboring muni cipalities, met to do honor to the occasion. The %orks have been erected with a view to the steady growth of Brunswick as a manufacturing suburb, the constant increase in its population, and although designed mainly to com plete a contract entered into with the local council, the arrangements include the lighting of abont 1600 houses in the town.

MAY 6tu., 391g. . :o:- THE old adage that he who goes a-borrowing, goes a-sorrowing seems not to be the motto of the Coburg council, judging by the manner in which they intend. approaching the Loan Market. The progress of that shire during the last few years has been very rapid, and the ordinary incomle has been, and is, quite inadequate to carry out the necessary public works which an increased popu lation requires. There is no doubt that the council have done excellent work with the funds at their disposal, but they cannot blind their eyes to the fact that whole streets of houses have been built during the last four years that have neither roads or paths worthy of the name. In most instances, two out of three honses in these streets are unoccupicd, and the reasons are not hard to find. Foremost amongst them are the unmade streets and ...

THE ROMANCE OF SCIENCE. How the Bessemer Process was Invented. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 May 1891

THE ROMANCE OF OSCIENCE. How the Bessemer Process was Invented. Sir Henry Bessemer, in a letter read at the meeting of the iron-masters in Pittsburg, gives some details of his first trials: "At the time of the Crimean War I had invented a mode of firing elongated projec tiles from a smooth-bore gun, the rotation necessary to insure their proper-position during flight being obtained by utilising a portion of the powder gas to produce rotation by reaction, after the manner of prodticing rotation in turbines, and not by the riflihng of the gun, consequently rendering all smooth-bore guns at once suitable for firing elongated shot or shell. I, of course, offered this plan to our own government, but it was discarded without a trial. " A little after this period I happened to bie on a visit for a week or two with Lord James Hay, at the house of his daughter, at Paris. During this visit our host gave a farewell dinner to General Ilamlin and several other distinguished oflicers in the Fredc...

How Lightning is Kindled. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 13 May 1891

How Lightning is Kindled. The observations of meteorologists show that the vapor which ascends in an invisible state from the ground carries with it, in calm and fine weather, into the higher regions of the air a very considerable supply of positive electricity. Each minute particle that goes up bears its own portion of the load. When, however, the invisible vapor has mounted into very high regions of the air, it loses its invisibility, and is condensed into visible mist, as has already been explained in detail. Numerous particles of the aqueous substance are drawn close together,and grouped into the form of vesicles or globules. Esch one of these is then a reservoir or receptacle of elec trio force, and as more and more watery vesicles are condensed more and more elee tricity is collected in the gathering mist; but each of the water globules is still enveloped by a space of clear air. In a drifting cloud the mist sp:cks can be discerned floating along with transparent intervals bet...
