A CRUSADE AGAINST FLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 12 December 1914
A C.RUAil /I.A:\lS FLIES, 4-~-c---.-- A recent experiment to illustrate 'i diirect connection between Ilies viil di.soae, consisted in allowing a t.iniuma, Ilie-liottlo to walk across a irco of freshly sliced potato. The ,natto subsequently developed colo airs of germs all along the track a' en by the fly, while clsewhere no iccelopmcnt took place. The im oortant question remains how best :o get rid of the fly. The 'Lancet' ;.-:gets a weak solution of weak orla'ldchydo in water (say two tea ;poonfuls to the pint!, It would ,ppear that flies are attracted by a .vsca solution of, formaldehyde, lhich they drink, Some die in the .:ater, others get as far only as the milneldiate vicinity of the plate of rater, but all ultimately succumb, .nd where they occur in largo num iers, hundreds may le swept up from :,h floor.

THE SWORDS OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 12 December 1914
THE SWORI)S OF SPAIN. T'he swords of Spain, and especial ly those of Toledo, were relnoni?ted for .their workmanship and temper. The Toledo blade, famous in song and story, was so keen, so flexible, and withal so strong that its finlenes be came proverbial. \\hen the Moors overran Spain ill the (th century they were lready materi, c1 many of the arts, and epecially were they adepls in the iworkling of metal. Their swords were hig.hly valued for their delicate temiper, and their decoration was also priced.
