THE SOCIETY JOURNAL POEM. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 14 March 1914
THZE BOIETY JOURINAL POMIL Br A DIBILrusIONremD ADMonTa. Oh,"so sweet were the dainty verses That rippled of dawn and bloom, O tihe thrush, that its song rehbarsee Mid the roses' odorous sloom; 01 the dainty white feet, and dimpled, That splaehed in the rushy st!eam; And the little face sweetly wimlled- The angel face of a dream. And I said, as I read and pondered, "'A woman's spirit is here, 3o sweet and so pure I" so 1 wonderel Which Muse of this nether sihers Had put her life in the poem The tale of her love had told At least, all its dawn-tinted proem, Too tender for heart to hold. And I strove to seek out the singer, And found no Sappho with lyre Vibrating to rosy-tipped finger For there sat by a tavern fire One who quaifed from a pewter esselt, And smoked from a sooty bowl, And berhymed on a grimy tressel, While his boots were away to sole I --4-4,-
SUPERSTITIONS CONCERNING THE ASH. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 14 March 1914
SUPERSTITIONS CONCERNING TRU ASU. Among the ancients the ash was esteems a sacred tree. In the Scandinavian my thology it is stated that the court of th gods is held beneath a miraculous ash whose branches cover the surface of thb world, and whose summit touches th heavens, while its roots descend to th region of Pluto. The Edda of Wodin holds the ash in a high a veneration that man is described a being formed from it." Hesiod, who is sup posed to have lived in Homer's time, de duces his brazen race of men from the ash The inner bark of the ish often was th substance the ancient writers wrote on be fore the invention of paper. It was believe, that serpents had such an antipathy to th ash that they would not approach evye within its morning or.evening shadow; anm Pliny tells us (he says on experience) tha if a fire and a serpent were surrounded b. ash boughs, the serpent would sooner rum into the fire than the boughs. Dioscorides the celebrated physician to Antony anm Cleopatra; assu...

SCIENTIFIC. MAKING INVISIBLE THREADS FROM ROCK CRYSTALS. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 14 March 1914
SCIENTIFIC. \IsKTING INVISIBLE THREADS FROM ROCK CRYSTALS. SLJr. C. V. Boys, F.B.S., has recently been describing the improvements he has made in the suspending fibres used inthe construction of the most exact scientific apparatus. In some investigations Mr. Boys required some thing very much superior to anything then existing, and this led him ultimately to the discovery of a way of making fibres by melt ing rock crystal in an oxyhydrogen jet, draw ltg it into rods, and then drawing these rods into the finest fibres by attaching them to the tail of an arrow, which is shot from a wroe-bow as soon as the rod is again melted. He made one of these threads lees than ono 10,000th part of an inch in diameter, and declates ie could make them of any size deown o the limit of microscopic vision. The ends of these are the finest things known to emist, beasuse it is impossible to trace them up to the end with a microscope. They are certainly not more than one-millionth of an inch in diameter, ...
NEW MICROPHONE MEMBRANE. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 14 March 1914
NEW 3MICROPHONE MEEM BRANE. The microphone of Messrs Mix and Genect of 1is, )lea-nburgerstrass, Berlin, has latel1 ncnd'e:ne an important improveient. The sound-plate of this microphone consists of s thin diaphragm of firewood, which has oas yet proved best for sound-plates. There is onlt one inconvenience, and that is dry fir is very susceptible to damp. Under its influence the plates become curved, and often cause s disturbing alteration in the contact points of the carbon rollers and of the transmission of the voice. Until now the plates hare beer lacquered for protection, and several varnishes were tried, but these protected the sound-plate against damp only for a ehort time. The water condensing off the plate during the conversation soon caused small cracks on the lan, which accelerated the introduction of damp into the wood plata The new invention has been found to over come all di~icnltiee. The sound-pltoe isnow covered on both sides with a thin plate o' mica, which, not bein...

Our Band. SUCCESSFUL- GARDEN FETE. £: Q250 RAISED. The Brighton Beach Gardens was the scene of a festive.gathering on Saturday last when the work of a large and energetic commnittee, under the able supervision of Mr. J. 1t. Taylor, in organising a garden fete and children's party to raise funds for the Brighton l)istrct Bra'ss Band, was consunumated. Repeated efforts have been made to establish a band in BtlIJton, and for a while the in stitution flourished, only, however, to agnain become moribund through lack of interest and support on the part of the residents. A municipal band was formed, but it met with a sinsi lar fate as its predecessors. For the last 2 years Brifghton has'bfren without a band of any description, which fact was greatly ideplored iby music lovers. The germ of the present movement started at the West Brighton club's pavilion, and a few preliminary meet ings' were held as feelers to ascertain if there was any possibility of re viving the institution.
