Gregory and Alderman Frank Myers,
of the

There was no cause for their action

account of controversies growing out
of differences of opinion regarding
the construction of certain paragraphs

Yankee Chemists Discover New Filler

Just as new processes of making pe
trol and dyes have been discovered by
scientists because of the war con
ditions, so the universally adopted
Mnzda lamp has a romantic touch dat
ing from the assassination of the Aus
trian archduke. The death of the duke
precipitated the war, which put an end
in a few hours to the importation of
the so called "rare gaseous elements"
which give the new 100 watt lamp its
extraordinary white brilliancy and also
its exceptional efficiency.
Just enough of the rarity was on
hand to enable the electrical chemists
to try discovery experiments In the big
laboratories. Day and night entire
forces of scientists labored to find
the tallsmanic substance equal to
the foreign product. Thrown on our
own resources, the American chemist
again succeeded. He found the "good
stuff" necessary to supplant the foreign
material. In fact, he has done so well
that America Is not only Independent
of Europe for this chemical, but the
new American brand is rated, of supe
rior capacity.

What is electricity?
Although evidences of electricity in a
primitive way were known as long ago
as the sixth century B. C., no one has
ever been able to tell definitely what
electricity is. At different times it bas
been thought to be a form of matter, a
thin, weightless fluid, a kind of unseen
force, a byproduct of thunder, a va
riety of motion, and so on. Yet we are
sure electricity is a self existent force
by which we are at all times and ev
erywhere surrounded.
