The reading room, it appears, has been so much appreciated that people have some times had to be turned away through lack of seating accommodation, and, in the more practical matter of sales, encouraging business appears to have been done

QUEEN'S UMBRELLA [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

QUEEN'S UMBRELLA Queen Mary was the central figure in an amusing incident on Monday, (says " Lloyd's Weekly News" of January IS), when she paid a sur prise visit to Norwich and spent seve ral hours in the city visiting the shops, the cathedral, the bishop's palace, and the castle.

The Composition of Irrigated and Non-irrigated Apples [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

j The Composition of Irriga ted and Noa-irrigated Apples The following extract is taken j irora the "Journal of the. Board of (Agriculture," London, and should { prove of" considerable Interest to readers:— "It is generally believed that Irri gated fruits are inferior to; nou-ini gated fruits as regards taste and power to resist the various agencies which affect decay, and, in support of this belief, it is frequently stated that the former contain abnormally high percentages of water, and con consequently low percentages of dry matter, and are therefore deficient in those compounds which deter mine the taste and body of the fruit. Although the body of the fruits may not be capable of deter mination from analysis alone it would appear, that in so far as taste depends upon the presence of certaiu compounds, analytical data would be of ma teria! servicc ia fhe settlement of questions relating to quality. lu the experiments described in this paper, the irrigated samples of apples were o...

INVENTIONS OF 1913 During the year just closing' 30,000 applications have been made for patents in the United Kingdom, the total hems' practically the same as last year (says "The Daily News and Leader"). Aeronautics have once more attracted the attention of the ingenious, some five hundred of bhe applications dealing with flight. But locomotion on terra firma is still found in the foremosl place, over 2000 applications having been filed for patents relating to rail ways and motor and other road vehi cles. More than one fortune has been built upon a simple idea—boot protectors are a case in point. There are 110 indica tions that the simple inventions of 1913 will produce a golden lira-vest, but there are many of great interest. One is a paper wardrobe, consisting of an airtight bag made of paper, in "which wearing apparel may be enclosed. Since the invention of the campstool collapsible articles 'have been patented.

SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER Mr Orville Wright's prediction about the popularity and cheapness of aero planing as a national pastime in 1914 (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph") is endorsed by many people here, who believe that a really efficient "stabiliser" will shortly be placed on the market. The Ameri can inventor's device, so successfully tested at Dayton, Ohio, as described al ready in "The Daily Telegraph," con sists of a compensating appliance at tached to the steering post, which, when the machine suddenly dips or swerves, automatically tips the wings and rudder to the proper positions. Mr Wright made seven circles without touching any of the controlling levers. Several times the craft appeared to be diving, but on each occasion righted it self automatically. The flights were made on the fifth anniversary of the winning of the Michelin trophy by Wilbur "Wright, in France. To-day a daily aeroplane passenger service was inaugurated between Tampa, Fl...

POSTAGE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

POSTAGE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES (By Fred. J. Melville, in "The Daily Telegraph.") The Khedive Abbas Hilmi cele brates this day the twenty-second an niversary of his accession (January S, 1S92), and the new stamps of Egypt which have been ready for some time have been withheld for issue to-day. The new stamps have been expected for some months past, the intention of the authorities to have new stamps being first announced in "The Daily Telegraph" in October, 1912. The cur rent number of "The Near East" pre sents a supplement giving illustrations of to-day's issue, showing the stamps to be distinctly Egyptian in design, and not less characteristic in execution of the typography of the London firm of Messrs De La Rue and Company Limited. As "The Near East" states, the most significant fact about the new issue is the use of English wording for French; for "Poste Egyptiennes" is now substituted "Egypt Postage," and the value "Un Millieme" gives place to "One Millieme," etc. All the values ...

MARRYING OF MURPHYS GRAZING RIGHTS AND AFFEC TTPIM3 The marrying' season is coming on in Connaught—it lasts from about mid January until Lent — antl important questions have to be settled. They are questions of money mainly (says the Connaught correspondent of "The Daily Express") because Mary Murphy may be as beautiful as the Dark Rosaleen herself, but if she has not £60 or so by way of a dowry, or a farm with graz ing for about four cows, she is not go ing to find a husband in Mayo. It is hard to believe that so charming a people as the Irish peasantry, to whom the poets have ascribed so many romantic gifts, should measure the ten derest passion in the terms of grazing rights "for four cows, but Mr Finn O'Brolligan, who takes an hereditary interest in the concerns of the con gested district from which I write, as sures me that they all do. j Mr O'Brolligan thinks romance may still linger in Walsall and Stow-on-the AVold, but he says it has not been known about Ballina since the Wi...
