In all epidemics of plague the history is usually the same -outbreaks of plague occur amongst rodents for several years, and then suddenly there may be an extension of the disease to human beings, "Plague world, with which the Port of London is in constant communication that vessels arriving thence must be con. sidered as potential means of convey ing infection.," Among the measures adopted are tile following:; Daily search for dead rats ; as many rats as possible in the docks destroyed hy burning; ingress of rats to buildings prevented by iron sheeting; rats con stantly examined by bacteriological experts, During 1912 no fewer than 1310 rats were examined, but only r13 were found affected with ...

If he did, lie would aklnolw ledge that our ohannoln were never in botter condltion, never maore ofloiently attended to, noever attended to moro cheaply and never a worse refuge for the arohaio arguamonta of the atagnationiat, I would furthoer point out that his argu. mont is not an argument against a Town Hall in Wllllaratown so much an it Ia an argumont against a Town IIall anywhero ; for I challenge him to name oneO munioi pality in the metropolitan area with leaa d...
OPENING A SAFE WITH A TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
OPENING A SAFI? WITII A TRUMPET. To make safes burglar-proof by abolishing all 'locks, keys nmd key holes, Mr Thorne Baker, of Londcn, utilises the well-knuooi sensitivcness of a tightly stretched wire to respond to its own tiusicel note, The wire i. in the safe, To opefl it, (Jnl Ilust blow a trumpet or sound a tuning fork in the precisely correct key, The wire is connected with an electric battery. When the note is sounded the wire vibrates and turns on the current which operates the locking mechanism. As a greater safeguard, Mr Baker puts three wires, tuned to threes different keys and each operating a lock. So it is necessary to sound three different notes on the b)tgle, trumpet, organ, or tuning fork in order to open the safe. The one evident objection to this lock ing apparatus is that one or more of the wires might get out of tune, in which case the safe could not be opened until the right key was found,

FACTS ABOUT THE GREAT LAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
FACTS ABOUT THIE GREAT LAKES. Lake Superior is the largest and Lake Ontario the smallest of the Great Lakes, but the relative facts are scar. cely known to the average person. While Lake Michigan ranks second in size, being 45 miles shorter than Lake Superior, it is twice as deep at its greatest depth, the figures being gooft for Lake Superior and iSooft for Lake Michigan, so that in cubical contents the latter far outreaches Superior. Lake Huron's greatest depth also is rooft more than that of Lake Superior, so that the greatest is not superior to everythingafter all. Lake Erie and Lake Ontario are comparatively shallow with maximum depth of ao,tft and 412 ft. and yet we should not like to fall overboard on either.
