ABSORPTION AND REFLECTION OF LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
ABSORPTION ANUD REFLECTION OF LIGHT. No one can have failed to notice that the foam along the shore of the sea or of a lake is white. No matter how deep the blue of the water may be, there in tile name white. hess of the froth at its edge. For that mat. ter all foam is white. If the blackeest ink is the world is beaten into foam, tile foam will be ae white an the froth of milk. The reason for this is that we see all objects by reflectel light. If they reflect all the raso, they appear white; if they absorb all the rays, they seem to be black. The ink isort hs all tihe light and in black. Wlen it is heaten inll to froth,the little bubbles reflect all the light froum their surfaces--for their extreme thin. neat maket s them practically nothing but sutr face-annd than Ithey are white.

PATRICK BRONTE. AN INTERESTING EPISODE IN HIS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
PATRICK BRONTE. AN INTERESTING EPISODE IN HIS LIFE. Anything relating to the Bronte family is of interest to Yorkshire people, because of the close relationship which they had with the West Riding by their residence at Haworth. In the recent " Haworth Edition " of Mrs. Gaskell'a biography of the noted novelist, Charlotte Bronte, Mr. Clement K. Shorter, the editor, has done much to remove the misapprehen sion which has prevailed in regard to the character of her father, the Rev. Patrick Bronte. For instance, in her third chaplcr, Mrs. Caskell wrote of him: In the days of tile Luddites hle had been for the peremptory interference of the law, at a time when no magistrate could be found to act, and all the property of the West Riding was in terrible danger. He became unpopular, then, among the mill-workers, sed lie esteemed his life unsafe if he took his long and lonely walks unarmed; so lie began the habit, which he has continued to this day, of invariably catrying a loaded pistol abou...
COPYRIGHT. THE LOOMS OF DESTINY. CHAPTER XLV. WHAT DAVID KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
COPYRIGHT. THE LOOMS OF DESTINY. BY J. MONK FOSTER. CHAPTER XLV. WHAT DAVID KNEW. It was evening again, and once more Geoffrey and David Blandford were to gether. They were walking now in the pleasant places behind the house, and both were sober-faced and thoughtful, sad-eyed, and sombre of speech, as be fitted two young men who had played prominent parts in the solemn and im posing ceremony of that day. Shortly before noonday the funeral cortege of John Blandford had wound its devious way from Parkhurst to that quiet city of the dead on the farther side of the borough; the streets had been lined with the late mill-owner's work people and the townsfolk, mayor, alder men, councillors, had figured in the slow procession, and a local band had added the necessary tinge of religious solemnity to the spectacle by heading the parade and playing the Dead March. If was all over now, and both brothers were pleased that the sad event had passed off so well-that all had been done in a manner be...

SAVED lY A KNIFE. The recent lose of the French steamer, La Bourgogne, leads a contemporary to print a strange and exciting story about the loan of another steamer of the soam line, the Ville do Havre, about 25 yeara ago.

Early the next morning, while the passean Swere restill seleep, the collision occurred, and is the panit that followed, Mr. Witt haue did wbat he could to get the women and children Into the lifeboats.

CURIOSITIES OF THE OCEAN'S DEPTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
CURIOSITIES OF THE OCEAN'S DEPTHS. The temperature at the bottom of the ocean in nearly down to freezing point, and some time actually below it. There is a total absence of light, no far as sunlight is con- cerned, and there is an enormous pressure, reckoned at about one ton to the square inch &nbsp; &nbsp; in every 1,000 fathoms, which is 160 timea greater than that of the atmospherw we live in. At 2,500 fathoms the pressure is thirty times more powerful than the steam pres- sure of a locomotive when drawing a train. As late as 1880 a leading zoologist explained the existenxe of deep sea animals at such depths by assuming that their bodies were composed of solids and liquids of great den- sity, and contained no air. This, however, is not the case with deep-sea fish, which are provided with air inflated swimming bladders. If one of these fish, in full chase after its prey, happens to ascend beyond a certain level, its bladder becomes distended with the decreased pres...
