HOW TO READ A BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

HOW TO READ A BOOK. To read a book in the true sense j — to read it, that is, not as a critic, but in the spirit of enjoyment — is to lay aside for the moment one's own personality, and to become a part of the author. It is to_ enter the world in which he habitually live8 — for each ot us lives in a sep arate world of his own— to breathe his air, and therefore to receive pleasure and pain according as the atmosphere is or is not congenial. I may, by an intellectual effort, per ceive the greatness of a writer whose character is essentially antagonistic to my own; but I cannot feel it as it must be felt for genuine enjoy ment. The qualification must, of course, be understood that a great book really expresses tne most re fined essence of the writer's charac ter. It gives the author trans figured, and does not represent all the stains and distortions which he may have received in his progress through the world.— Leslie Stephen. Words will build no walls. Make each day a critic on the l...

NORTH POLE SHIFTING. Sifrce the autumn of 1099 the slight shifting of the North^ Pole has been observed closely at six sta tions around the world near the 39th parallel of latitude, and Profes sor Albrecht, of Potsdam, has now completed a diagram of the Pole's ™rnnHprinf*-; for ten vears.

MELTING POINT OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

MELTING POINT OF GOLD. It is so 6asy . to obtain gold in a very pure state that its melting point is a fact of much practicai Import ance, because it serves as a basis of comparison, in the measurement of high temperatures. Experiments for the purpose of ascertaining this point with exactitude have been conducted in Paris by Jacquerod and Perrot, using a special type of elec trical resistance fdrnace, and a ni trogen thermometer of fused quartz. The melting point was found to be 1067.2 degrees Centigrade, or about 1953 Fahrenheit. This is eleven degrees higher than some former determinations, but somewhat lower than others.

Do they do so by means of sight? When they were blinded with blackened ^collodion they still found their way hofae, and so M. Bonnier inferred that vision was not necessary.

SOLOMON AND THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

SOLOMON AND THE COW. A judgment worthy of Solomon was pronounced recently by a jus tice of the peace in Bucharest, Rou mania. A certain peasant living in the village of Predeal lost his cow. About two months ago he happen ed to be standing at the railway station, watching a trainload of cat tle about to be sent across the fron tier. Suddenly he gave a shout. 'That's my cow,' he cried, run ning towards one of the cars. The trainman only laughed at him, but he went before the justice. This good man listened to the peasant's ctnrv nation^lt/ Tfion Yip nrnnnnnr. ed this judgment: 'The cow shall be taken to the public square of Predeal and milked. Then if it goes of its own accord to the plain tiff's stable it shall belong to him.' The order of the court was carried out. And the cow, in spite of its ten months' absence, took, without hesitation, the lane which brought it, a few minutes later,, into the pea sant's stable.

EXTRAORDINARY UTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

EXTRAORDINARY UTILITY. Probably the most useful tree in the Jwtorld is the aocoanut palm, tevery portion of which is put to good use. The trunk is used for building houses, for making furni ture and farm implements, and countless other articles; hollowed oui it manes a canoe, 11s leaves are used for thatching, the leaf stalks for puddles and fishing lines. The blossom in bud makes preserves and pickles, besides serving as a staple vegetable. From the pith of the trunk is derived a kind of sago, and from the flowers, sugar, vinegar, and toddy, which after fer mentation, becomes arrack. The ripe cocoanut is a valuable article of *1f*f .

NAVAL TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

NAVAL TERMS. The technical terms used with le ference to naval guns often puzzle people. For instance, one may ask, 'What is the meaning of a 40 calibre 9-in gun ?' The explanation of these terms is as follows: A 9-in gun is simply a gun that fires a shot gin. in diameter, and a 12-in. gun is one that fires a shot i2in. in diameter. , The calibre of a gun refers to ;ts length. Thus a 40-calibre gun is one whose length is forty times its bore; a 40-calibre gin. gun is 30ft. long, and a 50-calibre xa-in. gun would be 50ft loner.

CRAFT AGAINST SPEED. The sea-lion is one of the clum siest—animals in the world, and it has often been wondered how he manages to secure his favourite food— wild sea-fowl, which are so wild that it is difficult even for man to get within gunshot of one. The sea-lion knows that ordinary hunt ing' will not do, so he. dives and comes to the surface _near his gull, 'but only protrudes his black nose. The queer thing caicnes me cy c the gull, rouses its curiosity, and it swoops straight Tor the! little dot. The sea-lion sees it coming and sinks a few inches,' and as the gull strikes the water w;th tremendous force the seal's -Jaws close upward and the gull disappears.
