TIME FROM THE STARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
TIME FROM THE STARS. A correspondent of the 'English Mechanic' describes a simple device for telling the time, roughly, from the. stars which may interest some readers Cut out a card disc about 8in. diameter, with a central hole of, say, 2in. diameter. Mark off the twenty-four hours as on a sidereal watch. Write the dates September 6th, October 7th, November 6th, 74-Vi Tonnarv T'ebni- L/ci,cuiuci ? j , T' ? ary 4th, March 7th, April 7th, May 8th, June 7th, July 7th, August 7th, against the hours 0, 22, 20, 18, etc.; respectively. Hold the card with finger and thumb at the point corresponding to the date of obser vation. Now, keeping 0, September^ 6tli, at the top, and the Pole Star in centre of the centre hole, bring the card towards your eye until the pointers meet the edge of the disc. Run your free linger and thumb round to this point, and see how many hours intervene between the date place and the position of the pointers — this is the time (nearly). The reason of this is quite ...
THE SCLEROSCOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
THE SCLEROSCOPE. This little American invention has been described as a kind of me chanical finger, intended to discri minate, by delicacy of touch, be tween various substances submitted 1 to it. The ready detection of the j degree of hardness and elasticity of various surfaces is its special func tion. It consists essentially of a lit tle weight, liKe tne nammer 01 a, pile-driver, which is allowed to fall ( inside a tube, placed upright on the. surface to be tested. The bottom of the 'hammer, which weighs only a few grams, is finished with a blunted diamond,.. intended to give it the re quisite hardness. After a fall it re bounds, and a carefully-graduated, scale on the tube, indicating the height of the rebound, shows the de- 1 gree of hardness of the surface ex perimented with. On a piece of or dinary steel the hammer rebounds nine-tenths of the height of its fall.
FIRE ALARM HANDCUFFS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
FIRE ALARM HANDCUFFS. For a person to be handcuffed every time an alarm of fire is sent in over the wires from a street box and for the person to receive it in such a manner that to refuse the gift is impossible, seems a strange proceeding. Yet such a gift is one inventor's idea of the only way to provide effectually against false alarms. The special handcuff fire box is provided with a cover, which the operator must raise. He is then required to push a button to send in tlio alarm otIupIi arf/mn nlcn causes a handcuff to fasten itself about his wrist. The handcuff mere ly being for identification, is not chained to the box, so the person sending in the alarm carries it away with him. It is a handcuff difficult to conceal, being quite large, and must be unlocked at the fire station. If there is a fire, the wearer of the handcuff is to be thanked, but if the alarm is false he is to be dealt with accordingly.
THE STIMULUS OF COMPANY [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
THE STIMULUS OF COMPANY Does the presence of others affect the mental activity of a person in a manner comparable with the effects of such things as temperature and barometric pressure? To this ques tion Professor W. H. Burnham seeks an answer, and he himself fur nishes many interesting facts bear ing upon it. Doctors Mayer and Qrixn * .1^- 1 ? buaii une work _r ? Ui. auuuuiuuiiuicu ao gcucianj uccucx if. performed in class than if per formed alone. Meumann has shown that young children remember bet ter what they are taught in a class room than what they are taught when alone. Professor Burnham says many persons find the presence of others a stimulus to greater con centration of attention. That a crowd stimulates the imagination of the individuals composing it is a matter of everyday observation.
MARINE FORMS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
MARINE FORMS OF LIFE. Forms of life in the sea are far more wonderful than any that exist on land. However much one may doubt the stories of serpents, there are probably far bigger fish in the sea than ever came out of it; and as for plant life, it has been con clusively proved that sea trees 1,500 feet in height are quite com mon in the ocean. These monster trees are a kind of brown seaweed, the uppermost branches being only about a quarter of an inch, in thick ness. Countiess - bladders, like miniature balloons, and about as big as a hen's' egg, form among the branches of the tree, and, being filled with air, buoy up the trunk and branches so that they grow al most erect. Mammoth sea animals often build their nests in these trees, as they give off several de grees of heat, which makes the sur rounding water comparatively warftt. -
THE BUFF ORPINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
- THE BUFF ORPINGTON. The characteristics of the Buff Orpington fowl are pretty well known to poultry keepers in gener al, but apparently the novice is not so well informed. I can only say that as a layer of nice-sized tint ed eggs the Buff wants a lot of beat ing. Many pullets of this variety have commenced to lay at five mon ths old, but the average age for them to make a start is between five and seven months old. They will come broody, and make excel lent sitters and mothers, but are easily checked, if required, by put ing them in a coop with bars ac ross the bottom. These birds will stand confinement, or do well with an open space to roam over. The points of a Buff Orpington are as follows: Single comb, brown eye, white beak nicely curved, red face and ^ear-lobes, white legs, four toes on each foot ; the plumage should be a beautiful buff all through, and the leg free from featherings. It does not matter whether the colour is a light or dark/bluff, as long as it is clear and sh...
A NEW METAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
A NEW METAL. The coming of the aeroplane has I produced a demand for a metal I which combines the strength and toughness of steel with the light ness of aluminium, which are quali ties invaluable for many other pur poses provided that the metal will not rust or corrode. wh(;n..oviy-c»'t to the weather. Sucn a metal has recently been discovered by Mr. H. | B. Weeks, the chief chemist to the well-known battleship and gun bun ders, Messrs. Vickers, Sons, and 'Maxim. The new alloy, which has been patented throughout the world, is only slightly heavier than alumin ium, whilst it is as strong as ordin ary steel, and can be rolled into sheets or drawn into wire. These qualities, together with the absence of any tendency to rust or corrode, ' have not been commercially pro duced hitherto, and duralumin, as the new metal is called, will no doubt be extensively used in future ; where conditions demand the espec ial features alluded to above. Dural umin is to be manufactured near Birmingham, w...
Science Notes & News. A GRAVEYARD IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
Science Notes Sl News. A GRAVEYARD IDEA. I A curious apparatus 'has been in vented by Professor Jules Mauler, head of the School of Mechanics at Neuchatel, to lower coffins auto matically into the grave without the aid of men and ropes. The inven tion is a kind of 'lift,' resembling a stretcher, on which the coffin is placed, and by its weight descends slowly into the grave, aided by wires. The professor predicts that in a few years every country will employ his invention, which is easilv handled, is cheap, and does awa j with ropes and men 'during a sad ceremony, where the presence of strangers is often resented.'
EFFECTS OF LIGHTNING STROKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
EFFECTS OF ^LIGHTNING STROKE. Lightning striking the earth leaves traces which vary with the character of the soil and rocks. On compact rocks it often leaves a blackish incrustation, in sand-hills it produces fulgurites. These are nearly vertical channels, usually simple but sometimes branched, which are lined with vitrified silica. The outside of the tube is crumbly ? J ? 11— k1« 'Pnlmirifoa ana usucwiy uwiivuucu. uiguiiwu are found in all countries, but most abundantly in regions of frequent thunderstorms. They are particu larly abundant in some districts of the Pyrenees. The electrical origin of fulgurites has been put beyond question by the production of arti ficial fulgurites by the discharge of highly-charged condensers of great capacity through heaps of sand. Ar tificial fulgurites may also be pro duced by accident.
METALS THAT GIVE OFF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
METALS THAT GIVE OFF FIRE. 'The famous inventor of the Wels- . bach gas mantle discovered that the metals of rare earths, of which incandescent mantles are composed, ( when slightly alloyed with iron, have a power of igniting of their own accord. Intense sparks aro ? given off on contact with an iron . tool. A self -igniting gas-burner is now obtained by connecting with the tip of an ordinary incandescent j burner a device for producing sparks . on a fragment of such alloy, as the j gas-cock is opened. An alloy of 60 per cent, cerium, 10 per cent, rare earth, and 30 per cent, iron is an excellent spark-producer, and will furnish hundreds of ignitions at an insignificant cost. 4
Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
Household flints. ? « ? — ' Cut flowers will keep fresh long er if a small piece of saltpetre be put into the water. Ordinary beverages have little food value except those made from cocoa, chocolate,, milk, and eggs. If milk is used instead of water when mixing mustard for the table it will look fresh for several days. If, when packing has.tily, the ribbon threader has been forgotten, try using a safety pin instead. It will answer admirably. ? Orderly ways do not come to children 'by nature,' they must be taught. They are a valuable part of practical education. When a glass stopper will not come out of a bottle, allow one or two drops of glycerine to soak in, and it can be removed quite easily. A little cornflour added to the salt in the salt-cellar will prevent it hardening. ProporTions are, half a teaspoonfuj or cornflour to two tablespoonfuls ipf salt. ? If tomatoes are put into boiling water for one minute before serving at table it will, be found that the skins will come off qu...
MATTERS FEMININE. WOMEN AS ARCHITECTS' ASSISTANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
?wSMATTM'S WOMEN AS ARCHITECTS' ASSISTANTS. There are often defects in house construction which could have been avoided -if a woman . of ordinary ex perience had been consulted as to the interior arrangements. In many cases houses are built __with almost total disregard of, the necessity for cupboard and 'press' conveniences. It is not easv for a woman to make for herself an independent career as a full-fledged architect. To many woman, with plenty of common sense, and with a most practical eye for domestic needs, the artistic sense of the architect is lacking, while the long and expensive training, the physique, and the experience, as well as the authority necessary to control all kinds of work, are also handicaps. It is suggested, however, that there might be a career for women as assis tants in architects offices. A wo man's influence and advice would be worth much to a busy firm, whose orders may vary from a church or an orphanage to a country house, a suburban villa, or a seasi...

BEAUTY SHOULD NOT BE LOST. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
BEAUTY SHOULD NOT BE LOST. Too often the domestically in clined woman will watch her beauty fade with a helpless sigh as though it were one of the many joys which the cares of matrimony have caused to disappear. She fondly imagines that she need not trouble nor waste time trying to preserve her good i looks, that she lives only for her family circle, and they do not love her for her beauty, which, after all, was lost in their service. Here she makes her first mistake. Her family may not love her the less for her faded beauty, but they will appre ciate more any effort on her part to cherish it. Her sons and daughters like well to have a trim, well preserved mother to greet their friends, and one who can and does have enough of her youthful bloom outwardly to show that the heart within can sympathise with youthful pleasures.
