All who are adultB to-day were taueht what Harrey Maitland Watts calls 'the Gulf Stream Myth,' which was fathered by Maurj and ie still accounted as fact in the physical geographies of the day. Mr Watte, in the Jane number ot Scribner's Magazine, says that the belief that the Gulf Stream is the sole cause of the mild oceanic climate cf western Europe ii still taught in the public schools of England and America, though it is absolutely without any foundation, what soever. ' Modern meteorology kaowe that the Gulf Stream as an oceanic current hat no mere effect on the climate of western Europe than a weather vane has on the winds that turn it* That the belief ii still held ib 'a tribute to its attractive statement by one man and the hypnotio influence of one book,' exerted in a transition ...

HOW GEYSERS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 12 September 1902

HOW GETSEBS WORK. By means of a model geyeer an inventor aims to show in a simple manner the exact wsy in which a real geyser works. The instrument is quite simple. A email aspirator, with a bent glass tube exit, acts as an intermittent syphon, and the water is discharged into a half-iach iron pipe, the long horizontal limb of which messuree about 13 centimeters. Toe glass syphon tubs slips through a rubber ring at the top of the pipe, though a cork would doubtless serve the same purpose, and the lower closed esd ef the tube ie heated by the equivalent of about four burners and should be placed as described, as, if placed under the exit, steam would be geaerated too fast aad the water might be blown back into the aspirator. Water drips iato the aspirator at each a rate that in a few minutes % jet of steam about ax fe-t high, and water about two feet high, appear with many appropriate gurglings.

THE TZIGANE IX BOUMANU. They are always gay, aud brinj merri ment wherever they go, and therefore, in Epiteof their somewhat evil reputation, are generally welcome. Hottelries and fairs are often thronged by tbosi gaudy visitors, whose nudity is barely covered by their bright coloured rags, whose jokes are loud and epinted, aad who?e reckless ness is unequalled. The Tzigane women are versed ia the secrete of witchcraft aad magaetiEai. Oral tzaditioa has had tnr^ii to do with th**ir success, aad thev appear to practice in ea uncouth way many of the rites attributed to &?% Th.es fcpHftTr magiciaas, which, comiag primarily from Eeypt and India, dared a con spicuous part ia Greek mythology, says the ' Contemporary B* view.* When they desire to call down a corse on anyone they f aar or dislike, they bang a loac: red rag at the door of their huts, a survival probably of the famous red mwHn hsag by the priests of Samothruaa atthedeor' of tie temple when the god wasangry with the ci...

The apparatus with which it bores ie located in its head and consists of two oddly shaped scales, -which work together ia perfect harmony. The worm's body is almost transparent aad exceedingly tender. It begins to bora whea it is quite young, aad thenceforth it lives and works in wood. It bores so qaietiy that it merer betrays itself, and it always works in a longitudinal direction. It does not aban don this direction even if a nail or any other obstacle is in it; way, for it simply goes around it

THE PRESIDENT'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 12 September 1902

THE PRESIDENT'S WIFE. Although the fierce light of publicity has beaten upon President Roosevelt for years past, it is surprising how little the American public knowe of tho woman who has suddenly become mistress of the White House — the official residence of the the President in Washington. To understand properly Mrs. Roose velt's retirement in these years, when the newspaper paragrapher has scarcely been able to catch the colour of her gown, one mutt first appreciate the fact that she is distinctly a happy woman— happy in hex horn?, in her husband, in her children. She would rather fifty times reign at her hearthstone than in the White House. Let it not be thought, however, that tbe new First Lady of tue Land is timid or retiring through any fear of not being able to hold her own, or through any false modeety as to her charms or graces. Mrs. Roosevelt has a fund of both. ? . A Clevbb Woman, The wife of the new President is a woman of exceptional tact and amiability. Her social qua...
