In contrast to the weather ,pn the ■ provi'o'us day, tho sun now shone out warm and bright, and it brought, so mo degree of comfort to think that, any ship which passed over our track would at last have a chance of seoing us. Our number was reduced to five, and we wero all weak and oxhaustod. Dudloy was showing tho least effect from the privations we had undor gono.

MR. WRAGGE AND EARTHQUAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 25 August 1906

MR. WRAGGE AND; EARTH QUAKES. Per-th(VV.A.), Wednesday*—Mr. Clem- - ent Wragge, interviewed at Cue regarding the Valparaiso earthquake, said:—"The. •; earthquake in South America is, a sign, that the solar maximum-is closing, and the minimum gradually approaching, when pronounced seismic action will be? transferred to the sou.thern hemisphere with a declining rainfall. Such action is. due to etheric waves set up by solar con-, ditions, which control the earth's inherent forces, and. emanate especially from par\ ticular meridians oc regions of the sun. More earthquakes may be expected, espe cially south from the Equator during the. next few years.. New Zealand'- should, take reasonable precautions, and be. warned in time. Mount Erebus and Mount Terror will probably be in erup tion kitet on, but South, west Australia, has no.cause for alarm."
