THE POWER OF DAYLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 30 January 1909

THE POWER OF DAYLIGHT. , It is found that in an ordiuary room, from which sunlight, is excluded, the i brightness of the daylight commonly i runs as low as 1/10, or. even 1/100 can dle power, per square inch. „''Th©intrlii i sic brightness of /nearly all artificial ?lights is. much greater than this, which ^accounts for the injurious effects they produce on the eyes if located within the. range of vision. In a, paper read be fore .'UhiP Illuminating Engineering Socie ty of Philadelphia, J. E. Woodwell dis cussed this subject, -arriving at the con clusion that the best illumination , is a diffused light of from 2/10 to 1/10, can dle' power per- inch. .Although ? ultra violet light has. heretofore been ilield ac countable for strain and other injury to the eye, lie- points out. that there is less ultra-violet light in the. rays of various incandescent :illuminants than, in direct ot- even : reflected sunlight.

Reports from eighteen, districts in Beiir gal now show that in 198 cases where the treatment was resorted to there were only 23 deaths. In a number of instances the persons bitten were not re ceived in hospital until the. fatal symp toms had developed, when the .perman ganate fails, of course, in its effect. The cases which como under treatment are comparatively few, as the people still believe in; their snake, charmers, but it is hoped that tho ? efficacy of the new remedy/will gradually become known to all classes. It is suggested, by a 'Lancet'' correspondent, that ,. as the treatment is very simple and efficacious, local- government might well: order that 'every police station'and outpost,, dvery school and every resident; of a pauchay at, should be provided with permangan ate lancets, so that cases of snakebite may receive tlie earl...
