A LETTER from the M aster Plumbers' Association was read at the Council meeting on Tuesday evening request ing that monthly accounts be kept of its transactione with the Council Cr Treganowan moved that the re quest be acceded to.

FACTS AND FANCIES. May Displace Street Lights. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 23 January 1915
FACTS AND FANCIES. ---*-e-- May Displace Street Lights. o One of the many looked for uses of radium is the lighting of cities by its energy. The particles thrown off are not of themselves lumines cent; they become so only upon impact with another substance. Therefore, -when the supply of rad ium is greater, it may perhaps be possible to coat any building with a material of which pitchblende, the ore in which radium is found, forms the basis, and to cover that with a substance which will assist the battery and cause the matter. within it to become luminescent. Then there will be created a con stant soft white light that will never need replenishment. All street lighting would then be needless. Radium is the only sul stance known whose energy is seem ingly perpetual, decreasing so slightly, despite its unparallelled activity, as to be almost indestruct ible. The Significance of Color. Black and brown signify death and sorrow. Persians mourn in pale brown, and Ethiopians in greyish bro...
