Linenoid for Boats. A new material is being employed in the United States for the building of boats and canoes.

The heel and other parts where etreogth is requisite are made of ash or oak, and where metal is necessary, gun-metal or brass Is employed.

THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
TIHE t arn agul ua1dlltiiut W1ITTH wIICl IS INCOrI:IOIL?TI:D FRIDAY, PEDBRUAItY 22.i, 18953. THI everlasting cry of bad seasons, bad crops and bad times genprally, is being repeated with such '" dimnable iteration " that there is 'a danger of men familiarising themselves with the expressions and passively submitting to what they imagine to be the inevitable instead of reasoning out the perplexities of the situation and casting round for revised methods whereby the present conditions may be either modified or entirely removed. The farmer linds that the prices of to-day fail to yield fair remuneration for his toil, and that consequently after the harvest lie is very little better off than when lie sowed the seed. This, at all events, appears to be the experience of many of our local " sons of the soil," and inasmuch as the entire district depends for its advance ment upon the successful development of its agricultural resources, it neces sarily follows that under present conditions pe...

The Princess of Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
The Princess of Wales. The Princess of Wales never wearies in well-doing, and the sick always find in her a sympathetic friend. The first and most direct immediate results of education in nursing which the Princess gained were, acoording to the "fospital," "the visits paid to the dying groom who had caught the illness, destined for him to prove fatal, at the same time as the Prince. But from that day there has been visible a steadfast and ever-widening interest in all institutions and all persons that minister to the sick." But English loyalty is usually so pro nounced and effuirve that the Princees and other members of the Royal family have to do good by steaslh: When the Princess of Wales and her daughters played at a concers given to the patients in one of our London hospitals, the fact ot theirintention had to be guarded like a State secret. If it had not, governors s?d snebsoribers, with their womenkind, would have forced or wheedled an entrance, and the patients, whose gratifi...

Captive Balloons and Lightning. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
Captive Balloons and Lightning. Benjamin Franklin's celebrated kite ex periment by which he drew electric sparks from the clouds, which is detailed in most works on electricity, has been repeated by others, in some cases with fatal results. Recently at Alderhbot, three men were struck down and severelyhurtin co seqoence of receiving a lightning stroke while in the act of mampulating a captive balloon. The balloon was set on fire by the electric current, which afterwards made its way to the earth by the easiest path-namely, the metallic cable. It seems astonishing that the danger oi sending up such a palpable lightning catcher in thundery weather was not fore seen by those in authority. It was Frank lin's expeziment over again on a very large scale.
A Rat Cuts the Current. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
A Rat Cuts the Current. A singular accident occurred recently to the eiectrio lighting system of Baltimore. The lights of a large portion of the city nsd denly went out with no apparent cause, many connsetions were burnt out, and the switchboard was found to be badly damaged. It was finally discovered that the trouble was caused by a rat which had chanced to step from one copper terminal to another, thus short circuiting the current. The rat's body was wet at the time, thus maktmg it a good electrical conductor. It is estimated that 2700 volts passed through the little animal, a suflcioent voltage to produce 1000 horse-power. The rat's hair was burned off and the body had become rigid as if frozen. This accidental connection of the terminalacaused a sheet of flame to sprmn from one set of terminals to the others, which burnedoff the rubbsrinsulation of the wires, leaving them exposed, and set fire to the woodwork near them.

Extreme Cold and Life. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
Extreme Cold and Life. Some very interesting experiments have lately been carried out by M. Pictet, the well-known Frenop chemist, with the objecu of tryingthe effect of extreme cold on life. A dog placedin a copper receiver kept at a temperature of 60 to 90 deg. C. below the freezing point at water, became warmer by half a degree in the course of the first ten minutes, and after an hour and a half wa found to be only one degree colder than it had been at first. A little later, however, nature seems to have given up the struggle, for it suddenly died. Insects resisted a tem perature of 2Sdeg. C, below zero, but not 35deg. nMyriapods lived down to 50deg., and snails to 130deg. below zero. The eggs of birds lost their vitality at two to three deg. below zero, and those of ants at zero. Infu soria died at 90deg., but at 213deg. below zero bacteria still remained virulent.
POPULAR SCIENCE Sunshine and Pure Air. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 22 February 1895
POPULAR SCIENCE Sunshine and Pure Air. Six mules that had for four years hauled crs in the lower workings of the Spailand coal shaft near Laen. Ill., were broueght to light recently. In all that time the mules had seen no light stronger than the flicker of the Davy lamps the miners carried. The sun was in its zenith when they eached the surface. The astonished mnle. closed their eyes to shut out the flood of light and kept them closed while they were led to the pasture lot,'a mile distant, and turned loose. There they stood tremb. liar, as if afraid somethin, evil was about to befall them. Presently they half opened their eyes and peered around in amaze. ment When they had become accustomed to the suannlight they elevated their heads. Towards sundown they broke into a ohorns of joylul brays. After a quarter of an hour of that music they took to kicking. jumping, whirling around like teetotums and rolling on the sod as if they had gone mad. The sun and pure air were more to them than...
