Bullet-proof Stream. WATER-POWER THAT MIGHT RUN BIG FACTORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

Bullet-proof Stream. _ • WATER-POWER THAT MIGHT RUN BIG FACTORIES. A stream of water, considerably less than an inch in diameter, moving with such amazing velocity that it :an not be cut by a bullet or by the finest tempered sword, is described in the "Popular Scicnce Monthly." "A factory in Grenoble, France," it is related, "utilises the water of-a reservoir situated in the mountains • at a height of 200 yards. The water reaches the factory through a verti cal tube of the same length, with a Jiameter of considerably lees than an inch, the jet being used to move a turbine. Experiments have shown that the strongest men cannot cut bhe jet with the best tempered sword, ind in some instances the blade has Deen broken into fragments without ieflecting a drop of the. water, and with as much violence as a pane of jlase may be shattered by a blow 'rom an iron bar. It haa been calcu lated that a jet of water - a small ] Fraction of an inch in thickness, mov- j ,ng with sufficient velocity, c...

The Anzac's Home-coming [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

The Anzac's Home-coming j1 t, -♦ The New Zealander glanced once or j twice at the man in the corner en- j grossed in a newspaper before he i ventured the query, "Are you going j to Holly town ?" j The reply was a monosyllabic affir- j mative. "Do you know Hollytown well ?" j asked the soldier. - "Pretty well," said the man with his face buried in the paper. I could have shaken him for his boorish brevity. Discouraged but per sistent, the soldier returned to the attack. "Have you lived long in Hol lytown ?" The man in* the corner detached himself sufficiently from his paper to explain that he did not live in Holly- j town at all, but that he had gone ! back and forward several times a week for a series of years. There was a wistful look in the •soldier's eyes as he turned to me, and I anticipated his question by volun teering the statement that, unfortu nately, I did not know Hollytown, and.that I was bound for a j.oint on the line just short of that' interesting little burgh. j ■ A ...

AN ASTRONOMICAL PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

an astronomical proposal. Sir George Airy, the famous Eng lish astronomer, who searched the heavens with such bold and clear vision, was bo bashful in society that he could not look anyone directly in the face. By reason of his timidity he seemed to be doomed to be a bachelor for life. But fortune favoured him, and he drifted into matrimony in an unexpected way. An intimate friend remarked to him one day :— "Have you ever observed Miss 's eyes ? They have the property of double refraction." Scientific enthusiasm was kindled, and shyness vanished before an un solved problem which he might solve. "Dear me, that i6 very odd !" he exclaimed. "I should like to see that. Do you think I might venture to call ?" And call he did, and begged per mission to examine the eyes. The novelty of the situation may hwe fascinated him. At any rate, he beg ged the privilege of a second call to look at them in a clearer light. The problem grew so interesting that he concluded to make it a life-study.. Th...

NOTHING SERIOUS. HIS FATHER'S SON. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

NOTHING SERIOUS. ' — - HIS FATHER'S 801*. "That boy will be the d««th of me some day," declared the toad of the family. "I am sure I don't know whore he gets all his impudence and self-assurance from ; surely not from me. He returned home from school the other day to spend the holidays, as I supposed, and, entering my office he threw his hat on the floor, select ed an easy chair, put hi« feet on my desk, lit a cigarette, inhaled a few puffs, and then, turning languidly to me, he drawled :— " 'I say, dad, do you remember the time you were expelled from school T>' "I did. There was no use denying it, for one day, in a burst of con fidence, I told him of my escapades as a boy, and lived to regret that J had been so indiscreet. " 'Well,' said he, 'history has re peated itself.' " 'What do you mean, you young rascal ?' I roared. . " 'Oh,' said he, easily, 'I've been expelled, too. Astonishing, isn't it, dad. how such things will run in a family ?' "

CASTOR OIL THE SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 January 1917

CASTOR OIL THE SECRET. —*— t After elaborate experiments it is now declared that ' the embalming fluid in use by the ancient Egyptians is nothing more nor less than the castor oil of commerce. Instead .-of some intricate and involved process, the "70 days in natron" was follow ed by the injection of castor oil. and M. Berthelot, secretary of the Louvre Musrum. has established this fact Be yond a doubt. Many investigators have vainly soug+it to fathom the mystery of the preparation of the preserving1 un guents, but they have gone about their work with the idea that com plicated formulae were to be deducted and have defeated their own ends through elaborateness of research. ,

FISHING BY TELEPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 January 1917

FISHING BY TELEPHONE, Izaak Walson, reincarnated In ths. twentieth ccntury, could further his knowledge of the finny races with a telephone. In Norway they have a telephone by which the sounds oi fish riiay he heard. It consists of a microphone in a hermetically-sealed steel box con nected with a telephone 011 ship hoard by wires, each .-round In the water being testified by the micro phone. The inventor asaerts that, with its aid. the presence of fish, and approximately their numbers and kind, can be recognised. When herring or smaller fish are encountered in large numbers they make a whirling noise. and the sound made by codfish is more like howling. If they come near the sub marine telephone their motions can be distinguished. The flow of water through their gills produces a noise similar to the laboured breathing of a quadruped.

MEASURING EYE JUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 January 1917

MEASURING EYE «HfMPS. ' —*— We know that an eye at ordinary reading distance takes in about lin. of a line at a time, and that in read ing a line of an ordinary book the eye makes five or six f more or less, according to the length of the line J distinct jumps. But how many know what dirertion the eye takes in mak ing these jumps ? And, *s the move ments are so very minute and rapid how have they been studied ? A very ingenious means has been employed as follows : A beam of light is thrown upon th« corner of the eye under ex amination, and this beam is reflected l>y the cornea on to a photographic plate. As the eye moves in reading, the reflected beam also moves, and upon developing the plate, which is also kept moving, a zigzag line is found. A study of such photograph ic tracings shows that the eyes, in turning back to pick tip the next line, have some difficulty in so doing. The longer the lino of print the greater the effort. and for this reason we may, conclude that a narrow...
