Correspondence. ELECTRICITY V. GAS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 22 December 1914

Correspondence. ELECTRICITY V. GAS. ' TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—In your last issue Mr. Hugh Hull accuses me of con veniently ignoring tlie following statement (which he says he made in his letter) viz., " My next state ment was that that a supposedly 50 c. p. gaslight with modern inverted mantle consumed four feet of gas per hour." Now, Sir, in my lettrs I have endeavored to be fair and impartial and have not written from a biassed point of view. In his letter Mr. Hull accuses me of ignoriug a statement which I say empathically he never made. If he will now make the statement I will be pleased to deal with it and other points in his letter in your next issue, after which Mr. Hull is at liberty to write the Melbourne City Council and explain how wide of the mark their engineer is in his calculations—Thanking you for in serting.— -Yours, etc., B. L. TAYLOR, Manager Col. Gas Associaliou, Ltd., Benalla. 21/12/11.

If such there be, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares wore for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, rieuds let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsougiit by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his> a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chnmp who wouldn't advertise,"
