The Effect of Freezing upon Impurities Contained in Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

The Effect of Freezing npon Im purities Contained in Water. The extent to which ice is ussd makes its importance in relation to health almost as great as that of water. An idea prevails that ice cannot be impure, from whatever source it is obtained, as it is supposed to ' purify itself 'in freezing. About all that is thought to£ is temperature, and as long as ice is cold little else is considered. Here is an error that has been the cause of much mischief, and as the iced drinks are sipped, their re freshing coolness drives awav all thought of possible impurities, just as candies are eaten and the quality, of sweetness is ail that is desired or considered. Regarding the eilect of freezing upon impurities in water tbe Massachusetts Board of Health has published experiments, as stated by Public Health, with sevepty-six samples of water and 336 samples of ice from 5S localities. In ice from polluted sources compared with water from the same, the experiments showed : 1. That in the ice t...

Corrosion of Zinc in Contact Brick. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

Corrosion of Zinc in Contact wiili Brick. A German paper mentions the fact that nnder some conditions sheet sine, when in direct contract with brickwork, suffers to an appreciable extent from rapid corrosion. In building tbe Berlin city market-halls a por tion o£ the zinc-work which rested upon brick walls was found to be deeply pitted at a number of places, particularly where the metal was close to the bricks. Chemical ex amination of these resulted m showing tbat they contained as high as one and fourteen- ; hundredths per cent, of soluble salts, of which the destructive effect increases by moisture. The proportion of such salts j varies with different kinds of brick, while in ; come there may be nothing to induce any ? such corrosion. As a preventive, roofing felt or similar material may be placed between : the zinc and brickwork.

A Phonograph to Record on Two Cylinders. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

A Phonograph to Record oil Two Cylinders. A phonograph to record on two cylinders simultaneously, so that one may be retained as a file, or so that a message may be re peated from one cylinder to another, is one of the most recent improvements in this line._ The construction is said to permit of listening to the record on one cylinder and simultaneously therewith dictating a reply to tbe other cylinder, or to allow two per sons to dictate at the same time. It will also reproduce two like messages simul taneously, thereby greatly increasing the volume of sound, or a cylinder bearing a record be reproduced on the plain cylinder while the operator listens. Tnis phondgraph is a patented invention of Mr. James P. Magenif, of North Adams, Mass.

Improvement in Photo-Etching [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

Improvement in Photo-Etching j The Papier Zeitung, of Berlin, announces that a discovery has just been made at etch- . ing, and especially in photogravure. As . usual, the drawing is traced on a piate of ainc, either by an artist or by pfcotcgraphy, with any suitable etching ground. This plate, backed with aspbaltum, is laid in a bath of dilutffacid. It is iben pat in circuit with a dynamo, the other pole being merely placed in the acid. When a current is allowed to pass, the acid attacks the metal with surprising rapidity; A few minutes inffice to bite the plate, and the depth of the etching can be easily controlled, it appears to as that tbe action is probably due to the depol&risation of the surface of the metal, which -in the ordinary method of etching becomes covered with a film of hydrogen, or, at all events, with a number of minnte ' bubbles, which make the biting irregular unless the plate is incessantly rocked and brushed. *

When all was ready, the emperor, with b;s coart and a throng ot spectators, rode in solemn procession from cne cad of the bridge to the other. At even, ing the bridge was illuminated wish torches and lanterns ; and Caligula boasted that ba had turced eight into day, as well as the sea into land.

RANDOM REFLECTIONS. A man never forgives awctnan for making hira fed siiiy. No rann best a baud rjan ever payees a mirror without Icoking in ir. A model wife is one who thinks her hu? b.md kno«s more t-han her kin. The birthdays of bis children are a man's landmarks on the read to old age. Every man is a hero to eomo woman, and every woman is a beroine to some man. When a man finaHy Eucieeds in making himself famous his wife gets ths credit of it. 'Nothing pleases a man so much as to ba told that an old flame, since married, stiil admires bim. A weman can be paid no h'gher compli ment than to have ber husband spend all his time in her company.

MINISTERIAL VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

Ministerial Visit. We notice that the Minister of Mines is expected to shortly visit this district on his return journey from the Mt. Wills and Mitta Mitta tin mines. A ban quet will probably be given at both these places, and no doubt much will be done to make the Minister acquainted with the physical and geological features of the country generally. It is evident that the tide in the affairs of this district has at last come, and if ' taken at the flood ' the possibilities of our future prosper ity are very great. The excitement that the discovery of tin mines in the far away portions of the North Eastern district has caused should have much to do with its future development, and once the influx of population begins we can rely upon its being thoroughly prospected for all kinds of minerals. A few finds of minerals other than gold and tin have already been made, and we should not be surprised to learn in the not-distant future that this dis trict as a whole is one of tbe richest in...
