Speed of the Wind. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 February 1914

Speed of the Wind. » ■ Up to" the prpcent the greatest speed of <ho wind has never been measured, for the simple reason that no instrument has yet been in vented capable of doing so. In 1878 nil anemometer 011 Mt. Washington registered 180 miles an hour, which is .the highest velocity, on record, and last November a Robinson anemometer w'as blown away, in-Jamaica,' when registering •120 miles per-hour. A tornado, however, blows far harder than that. At various times attempts Have been made to esti mate the velocity of wind in ti tor nado by observing its effects. For instance, in 1875 a board of pine wood was blown against, and right through, a telegraph-pole ; whilst during the same s tor in another plunk wus driven " 'three inches intd ; -the trunk of a tree. - . It was calculated "that such ef-. feels could only have been pro duced by a force little less than that of a cannon-ball—that is to say, the wind must have been tra velling nt the rate of between six and eight ...

THE GARDEN. SOME OF OUR ENEMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 February 1914

THE GARDEN. T SOME OF OUR ENEMIES. (From "The Sydney Daily Tele- . graph.") It is always an easy matter to write about our friends. Not so in re gard to our enemies. We get no good out of the latter company, and as a rule are not too anxious to say much about them. They do us injury, and many a time bring on no end of trouble. Still there are times when even an enemy must intrude. Garden ers cannot afford to pass him by. We must know him intimately, and must be for ever on his (or her) trail. In most of our life-walks the enemy is held at arms' length. We unfortunate people are placod in the position of being for ever after subjects that bring us no good. And of late our enemies have had a good fling. They have taken a full measure, and have been doing the thing handsomely. Many of us have been warring all we knew. Some have held the pests in check, while others have found themselves with all the losses on their side. These notes have been put together to give our read ers a chance ...

The. •Jeannette left Han Francisco in July, 1879, and imtil September 12 news was regularly received. Then came silence. A whole year passed, and still the relatives of the absent - crew watched and waited in vain. It was on September G, 1879, that the doomed vessel was definite ly. imprisoned by the ice. With a stout ship, provisioned and equip ped to pass an Arctic winter, the crew, felt little anxiety. . But when the long Polar night of three months had passed, the summer of 1880 came, the;-unrelenting lloe still | held their little hark in. its icy grip.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 February 1914

MISCELLANEOUS. The "work cure " which the German Emperor has just completed as a remedy for stoutness consisted of chopping, sawing, and carrying woo^ for from one to three hours a day. It was carried out in the gardens of the Sans Solid Palace, at Potsdam, where passers-!>y could look on at will. The Kaiser kept on chopping and sawing, entirely oblivious of the spectators. He was put to work under the supervision ot an experienced woodman, who was in structed not to spare His Majesty heavy tasks. Garbed in the simplest hunting clothes, 'he Emperor appeared punctu ally at noon remaining at work., from an hour to an hour and a half. The Kaiserin ,.was an occasional observer ot her husband's activities, which recall those of Mr. Gladstone, and several times the Emperor, who is fond of a joke, pressed one of his equerries into the service. A story of canine sagacity comes from Mansfield (England), where a six year-old terrier belonging to Mr. G. Woodwards, fruiterer's carman, has ea...
