CHAPTER XXIII. The Eve of Discoveries. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

CHAPTER XXIII. The Eve of Discoveries. Convinced of the danger o£ attempt ing to spend the night as arranged in the uncanny house, Claude Novell re solved to abandon the idea for the present; but, with the object oil put ting his would-be captors to the great est inconvenience, he decided not to inform the caretaker of his altered intentions. Feeling the need of a change, he consulted his diary, and, finding that there was au important meeting that day in London, at which some revela tions were expected to be made with reference to the discovery of radium, he resolved to be present, the ques tion being one in which he had taken great interest. . When he arrived at the scene of the gathering he found that he was a quarter of an hour late, and that the room was crowded by people who were evidently eager to hear every thing that could be said on the sub ject. He had, therefore, to content himBelf with standing just behind the heavy curtains which divided it from the ante-room. Fortunat...

THE STRENGTH OF BONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

THE STRENGTH OF BONE, The wonderful power o£ bone struc ture has been tested scientifically. A very small bone, only one square mil limetre— .0155 square inch—in diame ter, will hold thirty-three pounds in suspension without breaking, while a piece of the best oak o£ the same thick ness will hold up only twenty-two pounds. The bone is therefore half as strong again as the solid oak, thus showing that Nature is economical in the weight given to bones, making them hollow and at the same time making them stronger than if they were solid and much heavier. This principle lias been recognised in .me chanics, engineers using hollow steel tubes instead of solid to meet great strain.
