YOur repairing, save money SIMPLE SCIENCE By WOW (Science Service) INK As civilization advances we make more use of written words. We can't trust a man's spoken word nowadays, so have to have it in wr!ting. This writing must not fade away too soon. Many modern lovers use ink that fades in about three weeks in order to avoid legal complications when the infatuation passes away. This sort of ink is also very useful in paying your tailor with a thirty-day note. Ordinary writing ink is pretty per- manent. It's made by mixing nutgalls with copperas, water and gum. This gives a brownish mixture which does not show up well on paper, so a little indigo blue or other dyestuff is put in. This mixture oxidizes slowly in the air and gets nearly black. Copperas does not contain any copper--that's how it gets its name. It contains iron, and the nutgalls contain tannin. The iron combines with the tannin and gives a light colored substance which gets black in the air. The gum keeps the ink from spreading all over the paper when you write. With some people, it fails to do So, however. We owe a great debt to ink. By its agency knowledge has spread to all parts of the globe. Directors of cor- respondence schools are particularly in- debted to it~-perhaps more so than the students. Many preachers would find themselves much more popular if they would make more use of ink by pub- lishing their sermons instead of trying to vocalize them. Ink is a blessing and comfort to the weakhearted, for they can send sulphurous epistles Io their enemies without fear of physical injury to themselves. Printer's ink contains lampblack, lin- seed oil, resin and soap. Many news- papers should use more soap in their ink to keep them clean. Colored print- ing inks are the same except the lamp- .black is replaced with painters' pig- ments. Editors have to be careful what ink they use or their journals will be yellow.
