Alexander Johnstone, F.G.S., Assistant ta the Professor of Geology and Mineralogy it the University of Edinburgh, states, througt~ the columns of the Chemical News that a new and rapid method for detecting minti quantities of iron in minerals is easai accomplished as follows:--By means of a good strong flasue, produced in the ordinar5 way by the mouth blowpipe, heat for a minut: or two a small portion of the minerx preferably in a powdered condition, on clea~ platinum foil, with about four times its bol of potassium nitrate or chlorate.

That was a fable. But if we cannot yet cheat death we can, if a French profess:r is not romancing, prolong life, and espicci'lly youth. It is a fact which has just been elicited in a most singular communica tion in writing by one of the leading mem bers of the Medical Academy of France (Acadiunie de Medicine), Professor Brown Seguard, and lately read by him at the last meeting of the Biological Society in Paris. Having ascended the rostrum, the professor said, 't. believe the question of youthful existence CAN BE SOLVED by the assistance of ascertained scientific facts." That was the professor's belief 20 years ago; and since then he has devoted much time and care to certain experiments which lie now considers are conclusive of the truth and importance of his theory.

THE DANCE OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 April 1895
THE DANCE OF DEATH. The busy scenes of guilty, crowded cities ; the rush and moil and care of business; the gaiety and fascination of what men call pleasure ; the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life; the glamour of wealth, the fury of ambition, the gratified egotism ofsuccess -this is what men call "life." Scripture scatters over it all the dust and ashes of the charnel-house. All this pageantry of power, and of men absorbed in their own selfishness, and madly bent on their own utter and not distant destruction alas Ito the eye of angels there is no gla mour about it, and they see often in it but the glistering sepulchre, full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. The young man, full of conceit, bent on the lawless gratification of his own desires. goes as an ox to the slaughter, as a foot to the correction of the stocks. He sits at the lighted banquetof the prodigal; he sees there the "flushed guests, and gol den goblets foamed with wine," and be calls...

CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 April 1895
t.H 1LD &bJ. What would the world do withou* them? It would grow sour and ugly and crabbed and dismal and gouty, and finally die of old age and hypochondria Take all the children out of the worid and what would become of the smiles and shouts and grins and giggles that do so much towards making life enjoyable? Smiles would blacken into frowns, shouts into groans, grins into sobs, and giggles into snivels. Banish the youngsters fronu our midst, and the rosy-cheeked apples would rot in the bin, the pop-corn groanr soiled and repulsive, and candy crumb* to pieces and its gaudy colours fade away, the peanuts withier in their shells, and the raspberry jam sleep on in mouldy forgetfulness of its surroundings, while the scones and cookies and angel cake would grow dry and leathery, and become food for the rats and sparrows- With noe children on whom to exercise their powers, what would become of the measles, whooping-cough, chicken-poxw mumps. hiews, and shingles that now do so nuc...
