    The brief introduction states that a 'scientific friend of mine has written at my request the following description' of the 'scientific sensation of the month': the 'final establishment [...] that it is possible to photograph objects without exposing the sensitive plate to the light'. Describes how 'a peculiar kind' of the cathode rays first produced by Phillip Lenard Lenard, Philipp (1862–1947) DSB

has been used by Wilhelm C Röntgen Röntgen, Wilhelm Conrad (1845–1923) DSB

to create 'shadow photographs' of objects such as coins that were at the time obscured by 'a volume of a thousand pages, [...] a pack of playing cards, an inch of fir plank or of vulcanised rubber, and—much less easily—through glass'. (175) These 'X-rays, as he designates them', have been used by Röntgen to discern 'internal flaws in metals', and, in addition, 'a Vienna surgeon Exner, Siegmund (1846–1926) RLIN

has located a grain of shot in a hand, and has successfully examined a fractured bone in a foot' (175–76). Insists, however, that although the 'discovery will undoubtedly lend itself to the most fruitful and wide application', its 'theoretical bearing is far more important' (176).

    Notes that the passing of the Diseases of Animals Bill means that 'Foreign beef and mutton henceforth are not to enter Britain on four legs', which is a considerable 'gain to the cause of humanity' because it will put an end to 'the hideous horrors of the cattle-ships'. Observes, however, that the legislation will be 'naturally resented by the exporters across the Atlantic', and suggests that 'Some day, when it is possible to hypnotise cattle and sheep into insensibility for a fortnight, the prohibition may be reconsidered'.

more than I. He is a born psychic, with a marvellous gift of realistically rendering his psychic experiences'. Warns, however, that 'the frontispiece alone of his new story is enough to keep it out of circulation. The law against sex intercourse with animals may be, and is, unduly severe, but it is an offence against humanity to represent the result of the intermingling of man and beast. In Mr. Wells's story the hybrid monsters are not begotten: they are represented as the possible outcome of vivisectional experiment. But the result in the picture is exactly that which would follow as the result of the engendering of human and animal. It is loathsome' (374).

    Discusses the alarming number of exploding oil-lamps, and notes that there is 'a good man in Newcastle who has invented a powder, which he maintains will render the oil absolutely non-explosive. He sent me the powder a long time ago to be tested, but I have not yet had time to attend to it. It would be interesting to know how far inventors have succeeded in rendering this useful illuminant free from danger'.

will but pass the Bill authorising the use of horseless carriages, there would be another great stimulus given to a form of enterprise, that could hardly fail to give new life to many a district which by the growth of great towns and great railways are left stranded high and dry' (485–86). Also reports that in 'the ceaseless battle which mankind wages with the invisible bacteria that are now held responsible for all manner of diseases, it would seem that electricity is destined to give the victory to man. By passing a current of electricity through sea-water, or through any water to which salt has been added, it is possible to destroy the bacteria which swarm sometimes to the extent of 10,000,000 per cubic centimetre. An experimental plant has been put up at Maidenhead, where the Maidenhead sewage has been treated with extraordinary results. If electrozone—for such is the name of the electrified sea-water—really accomplishes all that is planned for it, all existing disinfectants, from carbolic acid downwards, will vanish into limbo, and our cities will find the difficulty of dealing with their sewage vanished as by a stroke of a magician's wand' (486–87).

Subjects:

Heredity, Degeneration


    Asserts that Émile Zola Zola, Èmile (1840–1902) CBD
Close   View the register entry >>
is 'the great prophet-priest' of the doctrine of heredity, which views man as being 'overwhelmed by monsters, which issue from the immensity of the past in order to reduce to impotent despair the generation of the present'. In all his novels, and the "Rougon-Macquart" series in particular, Zola describes the 'same appalling tragedy' of individuals and families 'throttled by the ever-constricting folds of what may be described as the antenatal influences of heredity and suggestion, reinforced enormously by the not less potent forces of environment and tradition'. (491) Notes that Zola 'prepared for his great work [i.e. the "Rougon-Macquart" novels] by reading up the question of heredity, finding [...] Doctor Lewis's Lewis, John Benjamin (1832–1914) WBI RLIN
Close   View the register entry >>
work on the law of natural heredity particularly useful'. At this time the 'doctrine was much talked about and little understood', and Zola's 'theory was that if men knew how to master the influence of heredity, they would become rulers of the destiny of the human race'. (498) Comments that 'No one more than he has dwelt upon the terrible living power of heredity, the resurrection of the dead of yesterday in the men of to-day', but Zola's deterministic conclusions are 'not good news for the toil-worn, sin-laden, pain-scourged children of men' (507).
