HINTS ON GALVANOMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

HINTS ON GALVANOMETERS. . Galvanometers intended to measure small currents passing through a circuit of high resistance are wound with a great many turns of very fine wire, while those intended to measure large currents in a circuit of small resistance are wound with a few turns of very thick wire. A great many bo- called galvanometers measure only roughly the strength of current passed through them : they are ' de tectors ' rather than measurers of elec tricity. A galvanometer to measure the voltage or pressure cf a current is called a ' voltmeter,' and one intended to measure the strength of current is called an ' ammeter.' The fundamental prin ciple of the galvanometer is that when -a conducting wire and a magnetic needle lie parallel and close together, and an electric current is passed through the wire, the needle turns and tries to lie in a direction perpendicular to the wire. You will now see that a very simple galvano meter oan be made with an ordinary com pass having a few ...

ORIGIN OF CHOIR BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

ORIGIN OF CHOIR BOYS. From the days of King Solomon, when worship music was seemingly raised to the very highest point of perfection, and the large choral bodies of adult male Bingers were augmented from time to time with hundreds of women ' and boys,' the boy chorister fitted in and out of view, until the dawn of tho Christian era, Bince when he has held almost undis puted and unbroken away in tho choir- J loft and chancel. True, his services were dispensed with in the Sistine Chapel choir at Rome during the fifteenth century, but, at about the same date, boys were sing ing in the Chapel Royal in London, and they continue there to this day. The first recorded praise of any English singer waB that paid to the choristers in the time of Henry VIII., when his royal Viennese visitor was so enshauted that he wrote home that their voiceB were more heavenly than human, and that they did not chant like men, but gave praise like angels. Haydn sobbed when ba heard ' the beautiful voices of th...

QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

QUEENS, The greetings wherewith Londoners in variably acknowledge Queen Alexandra must convince her how deep is the hold she has on the affections of her subjects. She may ba papular in Denmark — we have no doubt that she is — but there she is merely ' one of the King's daughters ;' here she is ' the Queen,' a name already held sb dear and revered through more than sixty years, We are apt to forget that things were not always so. The inoffensive wife of William IV. was supposed by the populace to be influencing the King against the Reform Bill, and waB mobbed in her car riage. The eeuntry was jnst then in a Btate of great excitement. Tbere we're riots in London, Bristol, Darby, Notting ham, and Edinburgh. The only hope of the Cabinet lay in getting the King to consent to create a batch of Peers suffi cient to carrv the Bill through the TTnnno of Lords. Hence the Majesties, the Farmer King and the plain and proper Queen. Royal ladies wed early, as a rule, but PrinaeBs Mary of Cambrid...

Humour. IN A SCHOOL HOUSE. LANDLORD is the North who bad weak limbs, and walked with zMlMC difficulty, even with crutches, took gre^t interest in a school on his estate.

RENOVATING LINOLEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

RENOVATING LINOLEUM. Linoleum or oilcloth in a hall can have its freshnesB restored by the application of a Tittle beeswax nnd turpentine. It must be first washed in the ordinary way with a flannel and hot water, then dip a dry flannel into the polish and rub it over the whole surface very lightly. This is a good preservative, but should not be used too often. It is a good plan to wash linoleum over with milk once or twice a month, as it helps to preserve the colours, sour milk answering the purpose as well as fresh. The only way to take scratches out of linoleam is to rub them down with a sheet of moderately fine sandpaper, and finish with very fine sandpaper. Spots may be taken out with benzoline applied with a rag, rubbing until the spots are gone. Be careful of fire when using benzoline. To prevent moulding, lay felt paper underneath the linoleum, or mix 2 ;z. patent driers to each pint of oil, strain, and dress linoleum with it. Let each coat dry firBt before applying the next....

KNOWING BY SIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

KNOWING BT SIGN. When Coleridge was Btaying among the Qu«ntox:hills, he was fond of riding over to Taunton whenever he could find a sober steed. One day, on a familiar rout?, his horse cast s Bhoe, and *.e stopped at a village to have it replaced. ' ' Wnat time is it P* he caked the smith, chiefly with the desire of making con versation. ' i ll tell ee present, sir, said tne man. Then he lifted a hind foot of the horse, looked acrOBB it attentively, and added, ' half past eleven.' ' How do you know P' asked Coleridge. ' Do 'ee think as I've ehoed horses all my life, and 'don't kn .w by sign what o'clock it is ?' The poet went away pnzzTod, but he returned that evening and offered the blacksmith a shilling to show him how he could tell time by a horse's hoof. ' Ju*t you get off your horse, sir,' aaid the smith, with a twinkle in hiB eye ' Now, do 'ee stoop down and loak through the hole in yon pollard ash, and you'll see the ehnreh clock 1'

Science. SEWAGE FUEL AT 10s. PER TON. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

Science, SEWAGE FUEL AT 10s. PER TON. jSHKNVENTORS have evidently not said gig their last word in regard to pro fitable means of disposing of sewage. ' The latest proposal on the subject emanates from a German chemist, who proposes to turn the sewage into block fuel and at the same time to sterilise the affluent m such a way as to produce a chemically and bacteriologically pure liquid which can be discharged into any river. He contends, says the 'Public Health Engineer,' that the cost' of the process can bo recouped by Belling the fuel for steam-raising purposes. The in ventor of this process, who is named Erich Springborn, has actually produced fuel from the sludge during trialB made by permission of the Romford District Council, and the assurance is given by Mr Prescott, the borough engineer of Redhill, that the new fnel, which is virtually smokeless and devoid of objec tionable smell in burning, proves ' a very quick steam-raiser.' We are informed that Mr Springborn is to be affo...

Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES SORGHUM AS A SOILING CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES SORGHUM AS A SOILING CROP. v^flTOLL forage plants are subject to sWXs change, from a normal growth, in extremes 0f temperature — also by humidity and varied fertility soil— that with large experienoe, and without prophetic knowledge, it is not oaflv (TAiitTA tha Aran, of nantanurn to the number and demands of live stock on hand. In seasons of warm, dry weather the Sorghum plant is excellent in supply ing the emergency demanded. 8orghum flourishes in the heat that withers most of the a-rasaes and withstands the lack of moisture. In a general way three yeirs out of four the pasture crop becooios shortened during the Bummer months, and at the latter end of this period the pinch is often felt by stockmen. Sor ghum may be planted early as corn planting time, in order to obtain sufficient growth to supply -the deficiency at drought time. The largest crop may be grown on land ploughed in the autumn, or early in the spring of the year, and thoroughly cultiv...

GROWING TREES TO WITHSTAND DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

GROWING TREES TO WITHSTAND DROUGHT. It has been long noticed how much better deep-rooted trees and growing plants stand a drought than thoBe which are shallow rooted. The tendency to root in any particular way is largely an in herited characteristic in the various varieties of trees or plants, but also partly a matter over whven man oas some con trol, There are conditions in which moisture is frequently supplied, by rain, or whero the water from below comeB so near the surface of the ground that it is impossible and unnecessary to try to make the trees root deep. Fruit trees in a central way as far as known, and but' a fen- kinds of nut trees, do well if their rootB extend to perpetual water strata. But on ordinary soils and under usual conditions trees may be so pruned and trained that they will send their roots ? down deep, and the deeper rooted the trees become the healthier, the longer lived, and the more productive they will average. Trees raised on these principles and planted...
