Three ideas of Nothing. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 2 February 1914

Three ideas of Nothing. In an Irish school not long ago a school tcachcr asked a class to define "Nothing.' He wrote the question or. the blackboard, and did so quickly atit! rather carelessly. A little red-headed fellow's hand shot up. "Well, Thady, what is nothing?" said the teacher. ''You may tell us." "It's the dot on the i ye've just for gotten to make, sorr!'" was the trium phant reply. An equally good definition was that :>f the lad who declared that nothing was "a footless stocking without ;/ leg." He. too, was Irish. Les^ imaginative, but no less convincing, was the mercenary definition given by j a canny "chiel" in Scotland. "It's when a man asks ye to baud his horse/' he explained, ruefully, "and then just says, 'Thank ye.' "

Blue, Yellow, and White Waves. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 2 February 1914

Blue, Yellow, and White Waves. The blueness of sea-water depends greatly on it? saltncs«. In the tro pics. the tremendous evaporation inducccl by the blazing' sun causes tii' water to be much waiter than ii is r higher latitude?. For about 30dcg. north and south of the Kcjuuter tli( waters are of an exquisite azure. Be yond these latitudes, the blue change? to green, and in the Aivtic and Ant arctic Oceans the greens are almost as vivid as the tropical blues. The extraordinary blueness of the Mediterranean lias two causes. Few large rivers of fresh water run intc ihis sea. and. moreover, the Mediter ranean is virtually land-locked, and ex posed to a powerful sun. so that evap oration is rapid. By actual test the waters of the Mediterranean are heav ier and contain more salt than those of the Atlantic. The Yellow Sea of China is usually supposed to owe its colour to the flooi of muddy water that its great river pours into ir. I.iving organisms are responsible for the peculiar tint. O...
