THUNDERSTORM DANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 29 January 1914

THUNDERSTORM DANGERS. When clouds are driven past one an- • ther by wind currents, electricity of :a1' trictional kind is produced. Lighte ning is caused .by the passing of the .•lectricity between the two clouds, or rom a cloud to the earth. As it 'ravels if expands and drives the air in front of it. When the lightning has massed the air that was driven away eturns with a rush, and it is this •ttsh which causes the noise of thun !er. It is not safe to stand under a tree ' '.uring a thunderstorm, for the light ling usually strikes the highest object inderneath it, so that the electric cur ent may travel down the tree and rike the person who is taking shel •:r. The chicf clanger is standing inder an isolated tree; to stand under me of a thick group in a wood is not: dangerous. It would be more dan •/erous indeed to stand alone in the -liddle of a field with no tree near, or :i any isolated spot] where we happen o be the highest thing amongst our mrroundings.

A TELEPHONE FOR THE DEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 29 January 1914

A TELEPHONE FOR THE DEAF. An optical telegraph, intended to fill the place of the telephone for talking with a deaf person, has been invented by a deaf and dumb married couple. It consists essentially of a keyboard, as in a typewriter, through whose keys single electric currents pass. In cach circuit is included an incandescent lamp with a flat surface bearing a letter of the alphabet or a Roman numeral. Pressing any key causes the corresponding lamp to glow. Thus, words and sentences are spelled out and numbers are formed. The key board can be operated as fast as that of an ordinary typewriter, so that with practice, communication becomes very smooth and rapid. Each station, of course, must .contain both a sender and a receiver, and these may he in different rooms or in houses a long distance apart. The instrument can be conveniently used for conversation between a deaf and a normal person who is ignorant of the finger languaga The silence with which the device is operated is a ver...

MACHINE PULSE-FEELER. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 29 January 1914

MACHINE PULSE-FEELER. By means of the mierophonoscope one may hear the faintest beating: of .'lis own pulse. This is for use- bv doctors in connection with the sphyg momanometer, an instrument for measuring blood-pressure. Formerly, to ascertain the strength of the pulse a doctor placed two fingers on an artery and increased the pressure of one until . the other finger no longer felt the pulse-beat. Now the sphy momanometer is strapped round the wrist, air being pumped into it until the pulse is obliterated, while with the microphonoscope the doctor listens until the pulse sounds disappear, showing that tlu ilow lias stopped. Other instruments enable the physician to sec inside the internal organs as if they were open to the. light of day. These consist of flexible tubes con taining lenses and lighted by electric ity, which , are passed into the hollow parts of the body. In the gastroscope, for examining the inside of the stomach, there are sixteen lenses." With this appliance a doc...

PIANO KEYS MADE FROM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 29 January 1914

PIANO KEYS MADE FROM MILK. The most delightful music at the | present day is produced by playing- on milk. The supply of ivory nowadays docs not, to a great extent, meet the demand. Strange as it may sound, skimmed milk forms a substitute. It is used for making the keyboards of the pianos, and in appearance this hard ened substance is hardly distinguish able from ivory. What is more, it is much less expensive, and its durability nearly double. Syrolit, as the skimmed milk ivory is named, is a practically new invention, but at the present time thousands of gallons of separated milk are daily transformed into one of the most useful materials of modern in vention. The milk is not mixed with any other substance, but, after being purified, it is compressed, so that all the moisture is extracted, and the sub stances becomes hard and dry. Prac tically in every part of the globe this product is now used. It is turned into umbrella handles, buttons, photo graph frames, etc.
