ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 30 June 1914

[.ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSATION. The condensation of moisture in tho atmosphere-i.o., tho initial atop in tho formation of clouds, "fog, rain, hail, anil _ snow-has been explained for more than a generation by the presence iu tho air of myriads of minute (mostly ultra microscopic) "dust" particles, each of which was supposed to sorvo as a cen tre of condensation. The well-known Jnatrument invented by Aitkon, in 18SS, in whi^h, after a small moasured vol ume of air has beoii cooled by expan sion, tho resulting droplets of water are inspected through a microscopo and counted, is know as thq " dust-counter, bocauso it has been assumed that the number of drops formed in this process represents tho number of particles of "dust" in the' given volume of air. This idea is intrenched in tho very latest works on meteorology in tho Eng lish language, though qualified by tho admission that in a iiglily supersatu rated atmosphero, such as may bo pro duced at will in a lubatory but hardly occurs in na...

HOW CLERGYMEN ARE SWINDLED. CUNNING TIIAPS INTO WHICH THE UWVAKY CLERIC FALLS. (Dy the' Rev. Forbes Phillips Authpr of "CnnEock and Comedy,' Etc., etc.) A celebrated judgo oncc said to mo: "The clergy are easily swindled. . It Is because they deal with human na ture as it ought to be, instead of looking at it as it is!"

A wo man, gcnorally dressed in deep mourning, will appear in the vestry after a service, and say she has put hilf-a sovereign In the plate instead of sixpence ; Unit she is a poor widow who is taking a week-cn 1 holiday, etc. She exhibits a purse containing a sixpence, accompanied by a vehement declaration that when she entered the church tlio same purse contained a half-sovereign as well.

PSYCHOLOGY OF HUMOR. UA sense of liuiuour in men and wo men serves as a shield between them and the cares am] responsibilities of life." This remark was made recently by Miss Gravcsou in a lecture she gave before the Child Study Society in Lon dou. As she was speaking about chil dren, she added the equally wise re mark:-"As children know nothing olJ one they have neither need nor know ledge of the other.'' llumor is nei ther an anacsthotic nor a hypnotic, but it is-0110 of tho great collision pads of human life, and does a great deal to soften tho more violent effects of -the .work-a-day world. Its psychology is still rather obscure, and it is not 0110 of those phenomena that lends itself to laboratory measurement like perception of colors or quickness in appreciation of pain "or pleasuro or sensitiveness to heat or cold. So for tho proseut no matho matical unit has been worked out cither for wit or humour. Novcrtholess, it is an uudoubted fact that humour is an excellent'psychologi...
