SCIENCE QUERIES. (Ity I'.iJC.'AI! LUC'IEN LAllKIN.) Q. -J take for 'granted that the earth is an enormous- armature rotating: in a magnetic fluid. We know that heat is produced in a solid armature by eddy currents. Would not these be developed in the earth and generate neat, steam and cause volcanoes ?
