Of lute.years, especially in .Lon don, it has become qiiite common for gifted people—beauties,' musi cians, artists, and so forth—to in sure separately those parts of their anatomy on which their suc cess depends. An American actress, for example, who was recently appearing at a London thcatro,' insured her eyes, upon whose power of fascination she relied very largely " for her ef fects, for £0,000. Similarly, Caruso has his voice heavily insured, . whilst the -r hands of • Paderewski, ■ the 1 great'i pianist, are : said ' to ' be ' insured for' some thing like £50,000. .Many artists of course;" insure their hands, and not long ngo a noted scientist, on nccount of the lieavy strain im posed by research work on his eyes, decided to insure his ,vision, despite the high premium ' demanded. Countless "freak" insurances also have been effected. To take a caso in point—a certain erstwhile society beauty, terrified lest her nose,which is at once her pride .and crowning gl...

Microbe that Eats Metal. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 February 1914

Microbe that. Eats Metal. -f Although science knows a Hundred micro-organisms that devour the human tissues and cau.se all sorts of maladies, and nlso many that eat plants, roots, dirt, wood, and clothing, it has never been imagined that there was one capable of eating up bits of steel and iron. Yet the discovery just made by K. M. Mtimford, an English student, shows that this is the case. A bacillus that has a specific ac tion upon solutions of iron and steel was obtained by -Mr. Ilmnford from the Bridgewater Canal tunnels at Worsley, Lancashire. This new species of bacillus varies in its digestive action upon iron and steel • compounds according to whether it acts . in . the presence or absence^ of air. -.When oxygen is present the iron is precipitated by the germs as iron bog-orc, while in the absence of oxygen no iron salts are formed. This iron-eating germ is a short microbc about one-thousnndth of an inch long. It grows readily on po tatoes and then looks greenisU brown in col...
