Ventilation. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 7 August 1875
Ventilation. tFmrnOcltm;,.) TflF. art of ventilating the confined spaces Within -which die inhabitants of civaised countries live aod pursue their avocations is one which is universally admitted' to he of high importance, but which has not tutberto been applied with com mensurate success- There is much reason to believe that some of the- most fatal maladies owe their origin chiefly, if notientkeiy, to the habitual breathing of vitiated air; and this seems to be especially true of consumption, which is about «ix times as frequent among those who lead sedentary lives as in those whose occupation requires them to be constantly out of doors, even in all seasons tfcd ?weathers. Apart from the actual production of disease, it is a mgth*r of daily experience that vitiated air; even that 'of a confined living or' steeping apartment, produces drowsiness, uimtness for active mental or bodily1 exertion, and often headache ; and these evil effects are heightened when the air is contaminated not...

The Arctic Expedition [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 7 August 1875
The Arctic expedition. ' 5^ The 76k» of May 28, observes, the ^ patture of the Artie Expedition maE& this day, in many senses, an epoch in the history of the world. This in the ' first attempt made with a set purpose and elaborate plan, with the best possible preparations and a reasonable hope, to reach the point which for ages has been the goal of universal aspiration. The most adventurous and scientific nations of die world have hitherto rather played with die problem than set about it as if it were really feasible. AD they ap parently hoped for was to push then* way a little further in that frozen chaos than others had done and be thetchampkms for tfae day. All that was necessary for this was to profit by former experience, and be a little more confident, a little better equipped, and a little more calcu lating than omers had been. Bat that would not be sufficient for so large and HiafiniK* an object as diat which England has now devoted itself, to. This is a. march upon ...
