The First Use ot Gas
St Louis Republic
Great was the amazement of all
Europe when at about the close of
the last century William Murdoch
discovered that gas could be used
for illuminating purposes So
little was the invention undentood
by those who had not seen it in use
that even the great and wise men
ofthe British Parliament laugh
ed at the idea How can there be
light without a wick said one mem

and eities with gas He one day
asked Murdoch Do you men

The first shop in London lighted
by gas was one of which a Mr
Ackerman a German was the pro

visited the Ackerman shop was so
delighted withthe brilliancy of a

she requested the proprietor to let
her take it home for the evening
promisingto return it safe and
sound on the morrow
Although many lay elaim to the
