WARNING TO LAMP-USERS. Moved thereto apparently by the number of acci- dents that have recently occurred, the Public Control Department of the London County Council has issued a circular containing suggestions for securing safety in the use of lamps. The County Council still attaches importance to the raising of the flash-point, and suggests the precaution of never burning oil which has a flashing-point of less than lOOdeg. Fahr. It is further suggested that purchasers of lamps should have regard to strength of reservoir, the make of the burner, and the weight of the base; and they give hints as to the treatment of the wick, as well as to such matters as lighting and extinguishing.
