ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914
atmospheric' condensation. The condensation of moisturo in tlio atmosphere—i.e., the initial step in tho formation of clouds, fog, rain, lin.il, and snow—Jia3 buen explained for moro tliau a generation by the presence in the air of myriads of minute (mostly ultra microscopic) ."dust" particles, each of which was supposed to servo as a cen tre of condensation. The well-known instrument invented by Aitken, in 1SSS, in v/hieh, after a small measured vol ume of air has been cooled by expan sion, the resulting droplets of water are inspected through a microseopo and counted, is know as the "dust-counter," because it' has been assumed that the number of drops formed in this process represents the number of particles of "dust" in the given volume of air. This idea is intrenched in the very latest works on meteorology in the Eng lish language, though qualified by the admission that in a highly supersatu rated atmosphere, such as may be pro duced at will in a iabatory but hardly occurs in na...

POISON BOTTLE ALARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914
POISON BOTTLE ALARMS;2 1 Numberless lives havo been lost or endangered by tlio carolesa ono who picks-up a bottle from . his modiciuo chest in tlio dark. ' This is boing con stantly done, and measures should ; bo taken to prevent it. It has-been sug gested that poisonous tablets bo given a peculiar shape, different from, tlio or dinary tablets. Another suggestion is . that the bottle bo provided with number of needle points |Okqtxzfiiflff stopper from which a number of. needle points project so that the stopper can not be removed in the dark without pricking the fingers.- Still another sug gestion is to provide the. bottle with ;bells■ that will sound a warning when it is picked up.'
