Ancient Thermometers. 'I he earliest thermometers were of 4lib expansion typo, and were duo to the overt ions and research of (.ialileo. They consisted of a glass ttiilb with a capillary tube attach ed, 1 lie bulb belli/* filled with alco hol, which expanded with tem perature, the expansion being indi cated by the movement of the alco hol tip or down the capillary. Tho .scale on the thermometer was pure ly an arbitrary one, and it was not until Hooke, in .1(381, sug gested tho melting-point of ice and the boiling point of water that any attempt was made to obtain a fundamental scale of temperature. Thirty years afterwards, in 1711, .Fahrenheit suggested his scale. As the Fahrenheit scale is still the one almost universally used by Kng lislt and American engineers, it nmy be of interest to know ho>v Fahrenheit obtained his scale.

Mixed, those are near the' earth's surface,- in tho proportion •of about four volumes of nitrogen to one of oxygen, the air is re- j spirable, and the inertness of the1 nitrogen docs no harm.

INDIAN SNAKE-CHARMERS AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 20 February 1914

INDIAN SNAKE-CHARMERS AT WORK. Tho main contention of the snake charmer, whether ho he Indian or Ked Indian, iB that ho is absolutely im mune from the bites of the most pois onous snakes, and tho manner in which ho allows himself to be bitten 1 by a cobra or adder never falls to impress, not only the native, but al so tho white man unacquainted with tho tricKfj of these humougs. Kor humbugs they really arc, although it must be confessed that thoj pro vide a very interesting and fascina-; ting entertainment.. As a matter of fact, snako-charmers almost without exception, play either I with snakes whoa:} fangs, and poison- j ous glands have been removed, or use' non-poisonous reptiles which 'they I pass otl as dangerous varieties.
