CHANGING THE COMPOSITION OF IRON. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 March 1914

CHANGING THE COMPOSITION OF IRON. Casting's and forgings of soft iron can be quickly transformed into hard steel by a newly patented electrical process for changing the composition of iron or steel. By the use of an elec trical furnace the entire mass of metal or any clepth of surface can be hard ened and tempered in a few minutes. The old process of changing the com position of iron or steel by cementation is extremely slow; and the more rapid process of casehardening with potas sium cyanide, or some other temper ing substance, produces only a thin superficial skin of harder metal. Both are faulty because of the difficulty of applying the carbonizing substance while the iron is heated near the melt ing point. In the new process, the iron or steel is completely inclosed in a hardening mixture in a small furn ace and an electrical current passing through it heats it above the welding point so that the change in composi tion takes place in a few minutes. In joalousy there is more solf...

Tho uso of the stomach pump, tlio only recourse whero tlio naturo of the poison is doubtful, may bo quito inadequate in somo cases, whereas a simplo antidote would savo tho patient's life if tho poison in question could bo identified.

HOW TO LIVE 100 YEAR8— IN JAPAN. The Japanese conception of the func tion of a newspaper is more compre hensive than our own. Ono of the most influential of the Japanese newspapers, '•Jiji Chimpo," set itself some time ago the task of discovering the means whereby a man could assure himself of a life of 100 years.

"Spend as much time na possible in the open air." MGo to bed early and rise early." "Sleep at least six hours and at most seven and a half hours in a dark room with the windows open." "Be moderate with tea and coffee: Avoid smoking- and alcohol altogether.'' The remaining- eight are in various degrees unfamiliar.
