Victor system of changeable needles
If a fixed or permanent point were the best method for
playing records, you may be sure the Victor Company would
equip the Victrola with a fixed point.
There is nothing new about a fixed point. It is the old
original method that was used on the cylinder phonographs
for the past forty years, which has bcoin superseded by the

DISINFECT BY SEA WATER
Brine Treated With Electricity Will
Produce a Strong Antiseptio,
The possibilities of manufacturing
a sung disinfectant from sea water
was a discovery made in the bacterio
logical department of the Liverpool
During a series of experiments in
the electric treatment of milk, Freder
ick C. Lewis, assistant lecturer in the
university, developed the idea of pro
ducing a strong antiseptic from sea
water. This, according to the Liver
pool Courier, was two years ago.
Since then all the disinfection and
cleansing of cultures and slides in the
bacteriological and pathological labo
ratories at the university have been
done by an electric chemical apparatus
which insures a powerful disinfectant
from salt water.
The apparatus employed on the Aqui
tania Is of course on a far larger scale
than the one at the university. The
principle, however, is precisely the
same. There is an electrolytic cell, a
reversipg switch, and some ordinary
insulating electric cable.
The cell stands upon a rubber mat,
to insulate it, and is raised upon a low
table, to enable the contents to be
poured out easily. It is filled with sea
water and an electric current is then
turned on and a solution containing
sodium hypochlorite, or available chlo
rine, will be obtained.
Tie solution Is useful as a sterilizer
of drinking water, and on the Aquita
nia it is added to the water in the

FRIENDSHIP THAT IS REAl
Distance Has but Small Part in Sever
ing Ties Bound Together by
We often hear of cases-more ofter
between men, but sometimes between
women-whore school friends separate
and marry, living their lives apart foi
ton or fifteen years, only to find th(
old relation just as firm as over oni
meeting again. Or in certain instances
friends separate, never to meet again
but keep up their correspondence foi

Friendship knows no space and n<
bounds. It is an indissoluble link be
tweon two human beings. And if you
expect to enjoy the affection of a rea
pal you must be prepared to do you
share. Do not be forever demanding
and expecting from your friends. Yoi
can only keep alive the pure flame o;
friendship by giving unselfish love and
disinterested affection. Do not loo
for them, but give from your heart
and you will receive. That is one of
the beauties of friendship. The more
love you give, the more you receive
But the more you demand and expect
the less you get.
Good pals are more precious thar
diamonds or gold, for they are the
rarert of all valuables. Friendship iE
the salt of the earth and those whc
know the joy of real friendship should
do all in their power to guard and
keep it, not to destroy it.
How often we risk losing the affec
tion of real friends for some worthless
acquaintance! So often we offer in
sults and snubs (sometimes uncon
sciously) to those who weigh moro in
friendship's scales than a thousand of
the aimless flatterers who would try
to make us believe they are friends.
Let us learn to know our real friends
and to give a heartfelt appreciation
for the value of such friendship.
