INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 March 1914

INCUBATORS IN "EGYPT. The announcement is made by Mr. W. IT. Cadman that he has discovered how the ancient Egyptians incubated chick ens to the number of 120,000,000 a year. He has found incubators which he states wore used in Egypt 5,000 years ago; . The secret has been, well guard ed, but it * is laid bare at last." They had no oil stoves or gas or electric heatcd incubators, but they had ovens which - worked better 6 veil though they required more constant tending. Each oven was calculated to hold 7,000 eggs, and the fuel by which it was heated consisted of chopped straw and dung, but for the last ten days of the hatching the energy was supplied altogether by the chickens themselves. It is the com mouestcerror of those operating our modern incubators to use too much heat,, especially towards the end of the period, and now we may learn from the old Egyptians how not to do things as well as how to do them. The use of the straw and other light fuel shows that the -Egyptians were mos...

SIDELIGHTS ON R.L.S. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 March 1914

SIDELIGHTS ON R.L.S. A genuinely romantic personality is truly inexhaustible. The number of biographies and sketches of Robert Louis Stevenson is beginning to ex ceed the mental compass of the.ordin arily gifted mathematician, yet still they pour in. ,The latest.contributor to the swelling fund of-. Stcvensoniaua is Sir Sidney Colvin, who more than most should be'justified in giving the world his personal reminiscences of R. L. Stevtnson'. These were disclosed— not in a book—though that may, per haps follow—but in a lecture delivered iv little while ago in the Kensington Town Hall. Sir Sidney was for 14 yearsk an intimate comrade of Steven son's. He first met Stevenson when -the latter was only 22, yet even then ,he seemed to have read and remem bered everything, at least in English and French. "His mind and speech ran exultantly over the whole range of life and literature. He was- not appreciated at the time in his native Edinburgh; he was treated as a pcseur, to be regarded with a...
