Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 May 1923
Thoughts. By Mfernda. I have been thinking in many ways what a strange world we live in, and yet. withall, there are many bright and lovely things in the course of our pilgrimage on earth. It is strange the various phases of life we have in this earthly sphere. We have the religious man-very often austere, stern and. unrelenting where freedom of life is allowed; conscientious very often. I admit, but apt to be narrow minxed in judging those of a different way of thinking. In a long life. I have found the above not the most con ducive feeling towards a happy life here. and I do not think it tends to a better life hereafter. True religion, I am an intense admirer of. - Then we- have the social man-one who lives solely to take all he can of the best of life. In his own way. he .has no time for parsons or chur ches: they are a clog -on his actions. and he would sooner spend his money on self-indulgence than to help chur ches or Sunday schools. To him, I would say, "my friend. it were go...

SIGNPOSTS OF THE SEA. --4-e The ordinary magnetic compass has one great fault; its needle does not pount to the North Pole, but is al ways some ditance to one side. or the other of the true north line. Further, this deviation varies from year to year, and it is seldom the same in any twe: c ats of the world. This kind of compass, too, is liable to be upset if there are metals or magnetic substances in its neighbour hood. The latest, instrument carried by all, great ships is called the gyro compass. It consists [or the most part of a he-avy wheel turned at very hi.h igh vi by an electric motor. The aze. cI the -wheel is so -mounted that it can turn in any direction.
