An Oft-Told Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 3 July 1914

An Oft-Told Tale. 1 The lalo of tho loss of the Birken head has often been related, but can never bo too often told. Tho troop transport left Simon's Bay on Fobruary 26, 1852,-^bound for Port Elizabeth. Seven hours after leaving Capetown &ho struck a rock, and twenty-five minutes later all that was visible was her masts, crowded with despairing survivors. Among the troops on board (drafts sent out to tho Kaffir War, then raging), who gave a still unfor gottun example of calm discipline and unflinching courage under such terrible circumstances, were some of the Twelfth Lancers under Captain Bond-Sheldon, a veteran who still survives. Ordered to get the horses over board, tho captain succeeded in do ing so, his own charger among the rest. Some swam landwards, some out to sea; but most doubt less -became tho prey of the sharks, which, hovering around the doomed vessel, added ci now terror to the situation. Then an effort was made to get out the boats, filled with women and chil...

Weather Made to Order. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 3 July 1914

Weather Made to Order. Is it possible to make weather to order ? In the opinion of that emi nent .scientist, Sir Oliver Lodge, it is by no means beyond the powers of man, and he advances the sug gestion that exploration of the up per rogions would result in dis coveries which would enable us to control the weather. The latter, he contends, is merely a matter of electrical conditions, and tho ingredients necessary for flno weather are an upper atmosphere charged with positive electricity i and a negative charge upon tho ' earth's surface. Much, he says, could be done by placing a coppor rod round the earth parallel to tho Equator and discharging millions of amperes (units) from this rod. Sir Oliver Lodge points out that wo .have spent millions on building rail ways, nnd why not invest capital In controlling the weather by this means ? Meantime, while we are thinking about the copper rod, much might bo done by electricians. Sir Oliver Lodge suggrsts that they ehould as cend a high mou...
