Abstract

p. 24 "Tube of Carbolic Acid:-- Tube contained Carbolic acid. Temp. raised from 75 [degrees] to 600 Fahr. In 1 hour. On taking out fibres, found them to have been acted on in much the same way as that treated in Wood-tar the cementing susbstance being dissolved from between elementary fibres, which when crushed or rubbed became a woolly mass. Not quite as well done as in Wood tar."; p. 25 "Tube of Powdered Rosin:-- Tube contained powdered rosin. Temp. raised from 75 [degrees] to 600 [degrees] Fahr. In 1 hour. Before rosin cooled enough to solidify, tip was broken off then tube broken & forms containing the fibres wre immersed in hot Linseed Oil. When dried, found to have been acted on in nearly same way as those in Wood tar & Carb. Acid, only elementary fibres seemed to be more brittle, & not so soft & woolly when rubbed in the fingers."
