AIR GAS. THE FUTURE LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914
AIR GAS. THE FUTURE LIGHT. Air Gas lighting has beeome. so iiL'iicrallv known and recognised as tlio future root-hod of lighting that it is scarcely necessary to state that a uv!I tnado unci f-.cicufrcfiinly coiistiuctou system provides a better quality oi lfght, at eonsidera!)ly less exponse, than it can bo had 1'rum any other medium. Tko low cost of maintenance over kerosene and acetylene is, of course, owing to tho fact that with air gas an incandescent niant-lo is brought into use, whereby 96 per cent, of air is ut. lisetl, and only 4 por cent, ol' gas. j With kerosene and acetylene every unit of light produced consumes the I pure kerosene or gas, and practicallj 110 air. Acetylene was certainly an improve ment on kerosene in the way ol con venience, and at the same tnuj. a triilo lower in cost of maintenance. It is; however, next to impossible to pre vent leakages, and tho odour and resi due is most objectionable, and the risk | of explosions will in time totally ban ish it fro...

CATARACT ON THE EYE. A PREVALENT BLEMISH IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914
CATARACT ON THE EYE. PREVALENT lSLliMLSII IN HOliSES. A congenital disease, often observed in horses in particular localities, is ca taract. This consists of an opacity in ouu of the deeper struotures of the eye, known as tlio crystalline lens', that is situated immediately behind tin;, pu pil.

A Duty to Posterity. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914
A Duty to Posterity. "I don't care," exclaimed the prehis toric woman, "if it is on crooked." A shadow of pain flitted across the face of the prehistoric man. "Dearest," he pleaded, "say not so. Thou knowest not " He gazed anxiously into her eyes. "—but it may be the imprint of thy form that the archaeologist will find upon the insensate rock." With a new realisation of the re sponsibilities of existence she turned again to her mirror. Home-fed meat formed 52% per cent, of the total weight consumed last year in the United Kingdom, and the imported meat 47% per cent. The total quantity of beef, Tjeal, mutton, lamb, pork, bacon, hams and unclassified meat consumed in Great Britain and Ireland last year amount ed to 2,277„500 tons, viz.: Home-fed. 1,202,200 tons; imported, l,075,30f tons.
THE PROFITS OF PERSONAL APPEARANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914
THE PROFITS OF PERSONAL APPEARANCE. By Fortune Free. Does not appearance count in life? I fead in the paper a few days ago of a situation being advertised as vacant. One man was wanted, and forty-two turned up. One of the failures wrote afterwards protesting against the "ridiculous" manner in which the guardians set about their task of selec tion. The forty-two were drawn up in two lines, and then the guardians walked down them. After that they retired and sent out for particular candidates. When they had exam ined nine they found the man they wanted. The disgusted gentleman wished to know why he was not "given a chance." One of the guardians thereupon stated that they glanced over the candidates and called in the smartest-looking ones! As one of them —number nine—possessed all the sualifications they needed they stopped I at him. ; People make selections in the same , way every day of their lives. Per haps they do it unconsciously. They do it all the same. I find a good number of m...

LIFE OF MICROBES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914
LIFE OF MICROBES. "What becomes of the microbes tbat fcbound in his body when a person dies ol a contagious disease? This question has been investigated in Ger many by Dr Klein, who buried the bodies of infected animals for stated periods, and then examined them for germ life. He found that the bacillus of cholera lives nineteen days, but does aot preserve its reproductive power after eighteen. The resistance of Eberth's bacillus (that of typhoid) is Dearly the same. The perm of the plague is always alive after seventeen days of burial, but not after 3 weeks. The bacillus of tuberculosis (which, it Bhould be insisted upon, destroys more lives than that of the plague, although it frightens people less), does not survive the animal that it has killed. Klein has found it in th« organs, but has never been able ta make cultures of it, and, a more im portant fact, has never succeeded in reproducing tuberculosis by injectionl of bacilli found in dead bodies.
