ADVANCE OF DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 23 October 1908
ADVANCE OF DEMOCRACY. It does not Elltter; it does not hasten. i It Is rather like th« Vienvlng of the breast of Nature herself. The mass It- > eelf Is no ordered mechanical thing like ' nn army; It Is a seething multitude of ; currents flowing lu tortuous kaleidoseo- i pie courses. But the thing ever Hows i onwards, Irresistible, omnipotent. It be longs to the eternal life of nature, not to the puny creation of the will of man. I -"Socialist IJevlew."
THE DUTCH BULB TRADE. AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 23 October 1908
THE DUTCH BULB TRADE. AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY. An industry characteristic of the Netherlands is the raising of. Tulip and Hyacinth bulbs. Attempts have been made in several parts of the world to propagate these bulbs, but nowhere can the experiment be said to have been successful, as the proper kind of soil for the production of perfect bulbs seems only to exist In the small space of territory be tween the cities of Leyderi and Haarlem.

Mistaken Notions about Lightning. It is a popular failKcy -that "lightning never strikes twice in the same place." This is quite tho opposite of the truth; Not only does lightning strike several times in the saino place.) -says Professor Houston, but, having struck once, it is more likely to strike tliore again than in any other .place in -the neighbour hood^ ' ? -V It is natural that tliis*, should bo so. This bccomes evident when- tho causos that determine tho path of .an elec tric discharge , are understood. Take, for examplo, tho case of a lightning flash between a cloud and soino ob ject on tho earth, such' as a tall treo or a church steeple. "When a charged cloud comes in"the'neighbour hood of such ail object, there is produc ed by induction, on its nearest parts, a charge of electricity opposite in name to the freo electricity -iu the cloud, say, with positive electricity, th£ near ost parts of the object become negative ly charged, and vice versa. Theso opposite charges in t...
