HOW TO MAKE DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 March 1895
2OW O T' MAKE DIAMONDS. *The' making of artificial diamonds has been the subject of immense thought and research on the part of chemists. Up to this time it has eluded all theeffoortof the experimenters, though carbon crystals closely approaching the gem have more than once been secured, and many chemists think it is only a matter of'time, and not a long one at that, when this secret will be wrenchedfromnature. In some recent resperiments on the effects of high temperature and pressure on carbon, carbol rods were surrounded by benzine, paraffin treacle, chloride, or bisulphide of carbon ant suibjected, to great pressure in a hydraulic press, the rods in the meantime being heated by having an electric current passed through them. In some cases a considerable amouni of gas was evolved, and a soft friable deposit of. carbon produced. In, no case was the density of the carbon increased. When the rod was surrounded -with silica the latter fused and the rod" was largely converted into gra...

The Missing Hand. [?] ADAPTED FROM THE FRENCH OF AURELIEN SCHOOL. CHAPTER II (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 March 1895
aourney tself wil onily take a few hours. On our arrival, you will remain con cealed at a farm, where I have left my faithful servant, Servoni, my confidante, from boyhood, who used to help me to abstract papa San-V'itale's wine, and to open his drawers to extract from them the cash that is a sine qua non to men who want to cut a figure in the world With Serroni there is another accomplice whose Teal name I have never learnt just now, he flourishes under. the name of Spalatro. Spalatro has- been in turn chorister innkeeper, and Neapolitan brigand. Con demned to death seven or eight times in Italy, he seemed to me to possess all the qiialifications requisite ini a trustworthy v;alet. 1f hcever. betrd-dd me, I need only speak oneword,-and he would pay the penaltyof his folly with his head, if I wished it."

PLATING WITH ALUMINIUM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
PLATING WITH ALUMINIU~L AParis correspondent says that the process which is intended to constitute a new trade consists of a new deposit of a coat of aluminium upon a metallic surface by the direct contract of a valatilised salt of alum inum with the surface. The sheets of iron or other metal are first of all cleansed from all impuritics by an acid bath, and they are afterwarls plunged into a solution of borate of eoda, hydrated alumina, and some easily fusible faix so that the surface shall be treated in aestate of perfect cleanliness. The articles which are treated in this manner are placed within c. close muffle, and the walls of the muffleee e raised to a very high temperature bya surounding furnace. In thisoperation of platisg it has been found by the inventor that the metallic sheets ame not only covered with arosting of aluminium, but that they become impregnated with it to such an extent that they are practically an alloy of the two mi - et.ls
IMPROVEMENT IN ALLOYS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
IMPROVEMENT IN ALLOYS. This alloy is intended to be used in thq place of steel in the manufacture of the various parts of watches, such as the balance wheel amd hair spring, so as to obviate the disadvantages which follow on their magneti sation oroxidation. The composition of the alloy is as follows :--Gold 30 to 40 parts, paladium 30 to 40 parts, rholiom 1-16 to 5 parts, silver 1-16 to 5 parts, and platinum 1-16 to parts. The copper and manganese are first of all to be melted, and the other metals afterwards added, or the whole-of the constituents may be placed in the crucible a, once, with the manganese at the bottom.
SCIENTIFIC. HARDNESS AND TOUGHNESS TO BE COMBINED IN STEEL [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 April 1895
SCIENTIFIC. HARDNESS AND TOUGH~NESS TO BE COMBINED IN STEEL After much study and the making of many experiments it is now expected that a very much improved kind of steel will shortly be at the disposal of manufacturers. The new metal, as it may perhaps be called, will consist of an admixture of steel and man ganese-the exact proportion of the latter not having yet been decided upon. Upto the present satisfactory results have been obtained by mixing from 10 to 14 per cent. of manganese with the steel It is said that, nothwithstanding its considerable toughness when cast in the ordinary way, an extra ordinary increase of strength is secured by methods which, in the case of the ordinary steel, would cause defects such as water cracking, brittleness, and so forth. The article which is being treated is heated to a temperature of about from 1600degs. to 2000 degs. Fahr., and then plunged into cold water. The nearer this temperature is reached and the colder the water, the tougher will be...
