By removing tho two ] small clamps entirely, the whole lamp can be taken out of the socket and used as la "trouble lamp" in sido or outside tho machine.

In Mexico human teeth have been dug up that were filled and orna mented with stone, but this is the first instnnce of gold filling having been found in « prehistoric skull.
