Dropped On by Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914
[ Dropped On by Accident. + Some of the most celebrated dis coveries in the world oi science and art have been the result of a happy accident. The worker, striv ing earnestly for one thing, finds that, while failing in his original quest, he has obtained another and far more wonderful one. The discovery of steam wan one of these "happenings," as we all know. The boy Watt, always thoughtful and planning, sat one day by his mother's kitchen firo. There was the tea-kettle swinging Irom its hook, and as the water grew hot, it began to boil, anil tho steam violontly lifted the kettle lid,. As it rose and fell, and the boy's eyes followed tho motion, his brain was fired with the thought, "If this email puff of steam can move the iron lid, why should not a larger amount move a larger object ?" and the whole subject of steam naviga | tion was there in a nutshell. The quick wit of a woman dis covered the strange force now known ; as galvanism. The wife of a cele brated savant, Galvani, of Bo...

PLAN TO MELT THE NORTH POLE. AND IMPROVE THE WORLD'S CLIMATE. DAM 200 MILES LONG. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914
PLAN TO MELT THE NORTH (, POLE. - .♦—— AND IMPROVE THE WORLD'S ^ CLIMATE. " ' '-if r DAM 200.MILES LONG. One of the most colossal engineer ing enterprises ever contemplated, is sketched in the Paris edition of the "New York Herald," this being no less than a proposal by Mr. C. L. Hiker, a Brooklyn engineer, to dam the Labrador current as a cost of £38,000.000, and thus im prove the -climate conditions of the civilised world. All that Is needed, writes Mr. Riker, is to build a jetty about 200 miles long across the shoals extend ing eastward from Newfoundland, near Cape Race. This would stop the Labrador current, whose cclji is capable of maki ng . 2A&lt;MrooO"£qv»s of Ice every second, from running right into the Gulf Stream, whose heat is equal to the burning of 2,000,000 tons of coal every minute. They meet now on the Grand Banks, where the water is only about 250 feet deep. If such a jetty were built, the Lab rador current, coming down from the Arctic, would be turned east...
