Giant Telescopes. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 18 July 1916

Giant Telescopes. ^ a Light and wireless telegraphy pre-, sent an entertaining study wben pre sented in the manner of Professor^ H. H. Turner, who recently explain ed during a lecture to children that light, sound, and wireless telegraphy j spread out and become weaker as j they travel. An electric message sent on a wire does not weaken near ly so much. - This explains the great difficulty at first experienced in get ting wireless messages across the Atlantic, although it was quite easy to get a message across by wire. On the other hand, light can bo mode to travel without spreading j out, and the searchlights which are j now used keep the light travelling j almost as if it were on a wire, so j that it does not spread out and get i weaker. Thb object of the great telescopes which have been invented is to col lect the light from the stars which: is weakened by its long journey. One of the greatest of the telescopes used for 'astronomical purposes is the j vertical telescope tower, 15...

Measuring Electricity. HOW THE TERMS WERE ORIGINATED. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 18 July 1916

Measuring Electricity. —A HOW THE TERMS WERE ORIGINATED. The terms volt, ampere, ohm, watt, and farad, met with in works on electricity, mean vsry little to i most people. The volt is the unit • of electrical pressure ; the ampere, the unit of current strength ; the ohm, the unit of resistance ; the watt, the unit of electric power ; and the least of all known, farad, the unit of electrical capacity. Current strength is determined by dividing the pressure by the strength thus the number of amperes of cur- J rent strength is equal to the number j of valts divided by the number of I ohms. The watt indicates the amount of electric energy being used when an ampere of current is flowing under a pressure of one volt. However, the term kilowatt, or one thousand' watts, is more generally used. The unit of electrical capacity, the farad, will contain one ampere of current at one volt pressure for one second of time.'- The farad is divided into a millibn equal parts, each part termed the micr...

Hobshaw's Hens. Hobshaw, _ normally a meek and mild individual, whose wildest hobby was until recently connected with foreign stamps, is now ramping round his own particular neighbour hood trying his- utmost to discover the. identity of rogue or maniac who wrote a letter to the editor of a local paper above the name of "Veritas." That credulous editor gave publicity to the misleading mis sive ; Hobshaw chanced to read it, and straightway fell a victim. "Veritas" made the statement that the surest and easiest way to make money was to keep liens. Hobshaw read his statistics, written round a marvellous laying strain, shook his head sagely on agreement, and forth with went out and made a purchase of nine consumptive-looking birds at considerably over market price. j I He installed them in the woodshed, J bought sixteen shillings worth of corn, meal, and spices, and awaited results with a smile on his simple face.
