Concrete with Leacock's Latin: Years are long, hours short
The house was built in an English style - the plaster on the outside does not stand up to Canadian winters and with the solarium and the dark floors and paneling it's REALLY hot inside in Canadian summers!
Fire extinguisher - the museum doesn't know what's in it - you were supposed to throw this glass bulb at a fire and it would put it out. (update - it's carbon tetrachloride!!)
Leacock was a small man!
