THE MOON AND THE WEATHER. SEAMEN'S BELIEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 19 June 1913

THE MOON AND THE WEATHER. SEAMEN'S BELIEFS. Notwithstanding all that has been written amn said to the contrary, a grrat many officers (according to the "Nautical Magazine") still believe that the moon has a direct influence on thie weather. It is not unusual to meet captains and officers who expect a change of weather at every full or new moon, and sometimes at the quarters. If you ask them their rea sons for expecting a change at full or quarter moon they will probably tell you that they repeatedly found a change in the weather to coincide with the change of the moon. . This can hardly be termed a strong argu ment in support of their theory. As the moon changes so often it is quite possible that changes in it may fre quently coincide with changes of wea ther. Others, again, argue that If the moon influences the tides it is certain to affect the weather. Apparently they don't know-or they. forget that the tides and the weather are governed by totally different laws. Every schoolboy ...

THE CORMORANT AND THE EEL A FISHING STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 26 June 1913

THE CORMORANT AND THE EEL. -+--. i' A FISHING STORY. It was at North Berwlck. The cor morant was fishing in quite a small pool which had high banks on most of its sides, but on one of them a shelving shore of shingle. So one of two men who observed the bird said to the other: "Now a cormorant cannot rise off a little pool like that. He has to flip some way over the water before he can take to wing. There is only that shingle on which he can rise. Let one of us got down to that he fore he gets out and we can stone him to his death." So they tilled their many pockets with many stones, and proceeled, to put the plan and the cormorant to execution. The one of them got to the shingle all right, ind then the stoning began. Both were good throwers. At each fling of an arm the cormorant dived. It seemed to the thrower that he did not always dive quite q?ickly enough. They hit him several times, or at least they told each other that they did, but it was only on the wing or the tall or some n...

Suddenly Travers utters an exclam ation. "You have seen her too. I just dis covered her presence. Something must have drawn our eyes there, at the same moment," says Smithers. "Yes, I could tell Lola Montez even at this distance. She is looking un usually beautiful to night," remarks his companion, keeping his eyes upon the further s'de of the ring below. Smithers smiles grimly. "Yes, but Lola is hardly as beauti ful as her ill-fated mother. I doubt whether a being ever existed with a face and form more perfect," is what he says in a half-menditative way. "You knew her, then, Smithers ?" "Well, yes. She was my'brother's wife."

ARTIFICIAL PUMICE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 26 June 1913

AnTIFICIAL PUMICE. Pumice is a volcanic rock that, when ejected from the volcano, has been- mando'porous by the sudden ex panslon of gas or steam imprisoned? in it. Although the stone is useful in the Industrial arts, especially in lea ther and felt work, in sculpture ands stucco-work, and in polishing woods and grinding lithographic stones, the texture and hardness of it vary so much as to make it untrustworthy for exacting work. That has led to the introduction of an artiicial stone said to be better than the natural pumice. It is manufactured at l3e-. tighelm, Germany, from sandstone and clay, combined in different ways to produce at least ton grades of pumice. Most of the natural pumice used in the United States is import ed. The value of the native supply in 1909 was over £6,000. It is obtain ed principally from deposits in Har tan and Lincoln counties, Nebraska.
