PETRIFIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 29 November 1919

PETRIFIED. A certain milkman was in the habit of watering the milk before starting | on his round. One day, by some unlucky chance, the man omitted to do so, but to his joy he discovered at tne nrst nouse he called at a huge cask, strongly banded with iron, and filled to the brim with water, the head having apparently been taken off. Such a chance of repairing his neg lect was too good to be lost, and the milkman had just succeeded in water ing the milk when the figure of the master of the house appeared in the doorway, and a voice asked, sweetly: 'Are you sure you've put in enough my man?' Poor John was petrified. I 'If I were you,' continued the voice, 'I should have chosen some other cask. 'My doctor has ordered trie a course of sea-water baths, you know, and you have just mixed your milk with salt water. But perhaps your customers like it that, way.'

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 29 November 1919

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. An alchemist, experimenting in earths for the malting of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice; holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighbouring buildings appear ed larger, and thus he discovered' the adaptability of the lens . to the tele scope. A Nuremburg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a: little aqua fortis upon his spectacles.. He found that it corroded and ' softenea th« glass, and he conceived the idea of etching.

Science Ghats. — ♦ — (By Arnold TJ. Henn.) ON THE HORSE AND ITS ANCESTORS. Continued. All the hair-y warm blooded quad rupeds which suckle their young, and are hence called mammuls, are the descendants of small five toed ances tors .about the size, of a spaniel. This is equally true cf the elephant, the gofilia, -the hor.se and the ox. In the sands and clays deposited since the time of the chalk sea the remains (bones and teeth) of the ancestors of living mammals are found in great abundance. These sands and clays are called 'The Tertiaries1' and are divided into lower, rniddle and 'upper — whilst we recog nise as postrtertiary (or quaternary) the later formed gravel and cave deposits in which the remains and weapoqs of the cavermen have been, found. The T-ertiaries consist of a series of deposits ^mounting to about, 3000 feet in thickness and they have fakes several million years in depos iting ; no-one can say how niany/ .

..THE LIFE OF THE WASP. . ' With the coming of winter the life of the wasp ceases, but until that time they are most exemplary crea tures. There are no lazy folk in waspland. They are inost industrious and ambitious— quite as much so, in fact, as their more celebrated rela tives the bees and the ants. Labour and effort are evenly, divided in a nest .; of wasps. For instance, some of them I assume the duty of plunderers, going j out in search of food, while others act f as policemen and- stay at home an* guard the place.

TURNING LEAD INTO GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 29 November 1919

TURNING LEAD INTO GOLD. Professor F. Soddy, F.R.S., declares i that it is only a matter of application to change lead into gold. He saya that, while now we can only work with electricity at one hundred thou sand volts, it is only a matter of per fecting the method to be able to work at ten times that voltage, when tha baser metals can be changed into the more preciou3. In other words, elec tricity, when ' brought to its highest efficiency and application, is the real Philosopher's Stone for which th« alchemists of the Middle Ages search ed so long.
