Illusive Speeds. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 26 January 1923
Illusive Speed's. * ? It has long' bdeh known that several com anon forms* of transportation produce illus- ions regarding their speed. The pace of sailing boat can rarely be judgèd accurately, except by the expert. It also appears that bulk has a lot to do with pace illusions. The visual impi-ession pf motor vehicles in mo- tion is not always to bje trusted. TJhirty miles an hour in a little motpr car looks about as fasX,as 50 in a heavy six. And so when the motor cycle shoots past us on the road we are apt to tóné> down, the initial impression that, it must be" going at a rate of 60 or 70* at.-the very least, and decide that, after all, >'Ai is probably going no faster than the or- dinary motorist when he is in a hurry. The "Scientific American" recently published a photograph of a motor cycle spinning along at high speed, and pointed out that a "cop" "mounted on one can overhaul all but tile very 'fastest and most wrecklessly driven cars. The pioture referred to was taken o...

The Wonders of the Chameleon. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 26 January 1923
Thc Wondevs ¿£ the Chameleon.^ The ;. chameleon;... whilst awkward' of . bod- ily movement "and ' oxceeclingly slow »in getting from place to place in his custom v ary haunts, has a compensating', factor in his tongue,. an organ as long as' its head and body, which . can" be shqt out without . warning, and "made to collect its insect, vic-, tim before the insect "or the onlooker ls ¿ware of what has happened (writes Dr. Pocock in "Conquest'.'). But the cham- eleon's six inches or niore of tongue, by reason. of its lightning-like appearance, has not created half the interest, in the world as the^ reputed ability, of the little reptile to' change coloy. . It would appear that these color. changes, mostly for protect- ive purposes, although made under the in-"* fluenees of light,0 only happen when the lighting conditioins are apparent to the . animal's eye. Many experiments have been, made which, prove this, such as plac- ing a" chameleon in a place where, al- though, the body was spec...

BRISBANE NOTES. WHAT OF ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 26 January 1923
BRISBANE NOTES. --: o : ' WHAT OP "ROCKHAMPTON. Àt this «moment the two main topics of conversation are about? the Federal situa- tion and -the Rockhampton conference, and^the wish is uppermost in all genuine anti-Socialist circles that both will be settlfed "satisfactorily. There is no question * that the city wants unity between the two anti-Socialistic parties ; but there is a feeling in some possibly interested quarters that'certain influences are 'operating which are more -personal Uian altruistic. If that doubt be removed at Rockhampton, and probably it will be,~and if it is shown that underlying the movement there is not an over-strong. colouring of the personal fac- tor, the prospect of achieving "real Unity will be hailed with delight. This much at any rate can be' truly said : - That the movement which was initiated in Brisi bane has spread throughout the State and is apparently gaining iii popularity and strength, even beyond the anticipations of those who launched it.
