The Mayor presided, and there was a 5arge attendance of the public. The lecture was illustrated with lantern views, Professor Osborne said that if a locomotive had 100 units of energy it would give 8 units of work while the best engine made would give 15 units.

The body was an engine, you could not get more out of it than was put in. The lecturer made an interesting statement when he said that he had averaged that a family of four, two adults and two cbildien, .could l...
