A Doer. A. useful m\n to Stonewall Jackson in the Ameriosn Civil War was old Miles,-the Virginia bridge builder.

Furnace and Microscope in One. INVESTIGATES MOLTEN METALS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 17 October 1914

Furnace and Microscope in One. INVESTIGATES MOLTEN METALS. One of the most interesting micro scopes ever invented and the only one of its kind in the world has just [ been perfected by Dr. Wright of the Carnegie Institute. It is an electrical furnace and microscope combined and was built in the ma chine shops-' of the laboratory. The object. for which it is intend ed is the examination of metals and rocks at an intense heat, in a con dition similar to that which existed at" the time of their formation By Mother Nature in the earth. In order to study the behaviour of metals a^d stones in a molten state it was necessary to subject them to a' heat which would melt almost any substance and ruin the microscope itself. Hence a plan was devised by Dr. Wright which allows an inconceivable heat to be used, but the machine, other than the oven" itself, is kept cool and no high temperature interferes with the microscope. This is donev by hav ing a metal hollow' jacket, through which water cont...

Unlucky Thirteen. PARNELL'S SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 17 October 1914

Unlucky Thirteen. ♦ rARNELL'S SUPERSTITION. Parnell was a singularly, super stitious man, and the stories told of him in this connection in Mr. Barry. O'Brien's "liife" are confirm ed by Mrs. Parnell in her book on her husband. Mr. O'Brien narrates a story of him which is of particular interest in view of Mrs. Parnell's "Life." ■ Parnell believed that the number 13 was unlucky. He would not sleep in a room numbered 13, and on one occasion, when he had been by mischance put in a room bearing that number, he created a terrible disturbance when he dis covered what had happened, and ac cused the landlord of the' inn of a desire to bring misfortune on him. On another occasion - he was at a dinner party, and one of the guests, Mr. O'Brien states, had to be sent away. from the table because there "were thirteen persons present. The superstitious may be interested in reading this to learn from Mrs. Parnell that she was the thirteenth child of her parents ! One of the striking features about...

Simplon Tunnel Flood. Deep down in the heart of the Simplon Alps lies • a big • unseen lake, upon which rests a super pressure of 13,000ft.' of towering rocks.
