The Mysteries of Metal. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 28 October 1882

Tho Mysteries of Metal. NOTWITHSTANDING the . wonderful progress that lias been mado during the last half century in tlio constitution and working of the useful metals, there is yet a vast deal to be learned. The motals, when pure, are commonly supposed to bo simple elements, yet; there are reasons for supposing that it may be proved that at least some-of tliom are compounds. Even the great Faraday gave utterance to the thought that the dreams of the "alchemist might yet be realised-that gold and other metals might bo found to be compounds, and that means miglitbe devised whereby those compounds might bo separated, and afterwards so differ ently reunited that the baser metals'might be converted "into precious. The changes which' were wrought in iron and steel by converting, annealing, and hardening pro cesses :are far from being understood by the most advanced metallurgists of the present day. , ' TJio mysteries of hydrogen gas and its. intimate rotations with iron as arc as much a ...

Sometimes slio had dealings with young girls who quarrelled with their sweethearts, and who, from jealousy or rage, had determined to kill them. This woman's terrible trade pros pered amazingly for two years, ft ho excitcd no suspicion, because tho drugs sho ad ministered acted slowly,'though surely, and in their ofiects stimulated tho symptoms of disease.
