WILL LAST FOR CENTURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 5 June 1914
WILL LAST FOR CENTURIES. From time to time discussions arise aa to the probable duration of our conl jupply. Questioned on the subject recently, an expert gave it as his opinion that at the present rate of consumption it .vould lost at least 350 roars longer, even if the mines are not carried to a lower depth than -lliOU feet. As, however, it is regard**] ay probable that mining ran be carried on -at a considerably lower depth, this period may be much extended. Apart from this, however, th« mthority pointed out that as time ^oes on we shall prow far more econo mical in our use of coal than at pre sent, as discoveries arc heinp made and -itiiised in the direction ot obtaining tho maximum of heat from the fuel, fn this connection lie referred to the enormous waste of heat that takes place in the case of the ordinary do mestic prate, which in course of tima .rill inevitably give place to more scientific contrivances, thus adding greatly to the time the cnal will laot.

&lt; . A U K OK 'I'll!-: I!

Glaciers and Icebergs. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914
Glaciers and Icebergs. J Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly ; but how many know how they arc formed ? When snow falls in the lower re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvio explained to a largo audience of young folks in tho thea tre of tho Royal Geographical So ciety at Burlington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts vory little, even during tho summer. So tho layers of snow are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls us an avalanche ; but on a high table land tiiere is no such escape for it. But tho snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, because tho lower layers arc pressed down by the ^rcat weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is the es sential feature in the .glacier. First the grains of ice :are no bigger than a pin's head ; but thoy gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger and bigger, and the large ones absorb tho smaller. The r...
