SCIENCE QUERIES. i I (lly KUUAlt I.UCUCS" LA.UK1N.) 1 Q. —I lake for granted that the earth is an enormous armature rotating in a magnetic field. We know that heat is produced in ft I solid armature by eddv currents. I Would not these be developed in the earth and generate heat, steam and cause volcanoes ? A.—The earth is a huge armature rotating at high speed .in the son's magnet ic ii^ld. Masses of metal and metallic ores in the earth actually out lines of magnetic force extend ing from the sun, and this cannot be done without generating heat ami electricity. Mathematics proves that the materials in a cut-out' sphere one thousand miles in dia meter, as the central region of the earth, are far heavier than any rocks in the surface layers. The equations deduced by Ncwcomb would all be satisfied if this cen tral globe is as dense as? .gold- or platinum. Therefore, beyond any doubt huge masses of metal exist in the earth. . .

WASTE LANDS ON FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 30 January 1914

WASTE LANDS OM FARMS. — — .. If farmers generally were as carc less with their money as they are with their money's worth, then the amount , of interest would not be worth worrying over. Look at farms of good land that have a selling value of £20 to £30 per acre and it will- be found that there are portions that arc bringing in hut a fractional part of what should be returned, and are not paying current interest on a capital value of twenty shillings an acre instead of C20. On many im proved and old-fashioned farms there arc areas that were at one time soft hoggy swamps, but for >eare past the swamps have been comparatively dry, yet no cfiort is made to rid the surface of the rushes or the big tus socks. In the eyes of the owners the ! swamps are still swamps, , although i for years the surfacc has not held I water. • j There is another source of loss in production on agricultural farms, and I this is the" amount of ground that is f made unprofitable by reason of stack bottoms.- ...

AIDS TO COLOUR IN FHUIT. Mr. G. P.
