Incombustible Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 19 July 1878

Incombustible Paper. A species of incombustible paper has been invented by two Salamanca savants. It is warranted to resist the most intense heat. A single sheet will carbonise but will not burn, while if a roll of prepared paper be placed in the fiercest fire, although the outside leaves and the extreme edges may car bonise, the interior will remain unaltered, and the writing or printing be perfectly legible. Papers already written or printed on, may undergo the preparation without injury. A novelty called the ' liquid ink pencil' has been brought out by Messrs. Letts and Co. It has a perpetual ' point', con taining its own writing material, and produces the same result as if a. pen had been used.

The Production and Consumption of Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 19 July 1878

^bs Prodtiztion and Consump tion of Wool. Some Very interesting sta Vlstics on the production and consumption of wool have just beenpublished bv Messrs* John iL; Bowes and Brother, :of Livei-pool in their ' statistics relating to wool and and sheep rkins.' The compiler, Mr. James L. Bowes, points out that complete statists of pro duction are not obtainable, : ince the subject has seldom lieen treated in a practical manner. Statisticians bewilder themselves with, guesses based on the estimated numbers of sheep in producing countries, instead of dealing with the returns of the wool actually produced and sold. The prin cipal sources of the supply of clothing wool in Europe are Australasia, the Cape, and the Itiver Plate, and the price of wool from these countries and from the Unitied States governs values in Europe, As almost none of the wool pro duced in the Australian colonies is used there the ex ports thence tell, of course, the actual production ; but as re gards the states recour...

Upper House Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 19 July 1878

Upper House Eeforii. DurHg the session of Parliament there is always a more or less wide spread scrutiny of tiie policy initiated, and well is it that such is the case, for ihe more intimately each unit in the state sympathises with, and is interested in the action of tha representatives, the greater .will- be the likelihood of good Government, and the' less the opportunity for mal-ad^ninistrati0n of the laws; at tie present time this watchfulness on the part of the people, is more than ever needful ; and a wise judgment altrne will prevent disasters that are threatening. We have seen only lately a most disastrous state of things existing in Victoria, caused' by a struggle tor mastery between tie few ^presenting large possessions, and the many having but email property. There is every reason to believe also that the worst of the conflict has not yet been seen, it is not yet decided whether men or pro perty shall govern. Nor is this ques tion likely to affect Victoria only ; we have ...

Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878

Scraps. I was amused whilst visiting Clare a few days since by the recital of the following practical illustration of *' The biter bit.' I give it at it was given me omitting only the names of those connected with the affair. A young gentleman residing in Clare (whom we will name D ? ), holding a respectable position and esteemed by the general public, lived with a number of other fellows (I was going to use the term gentle men, but it would be a mis nomer and a libel), at a highly respectable hostelrie in the above mentioned town. Young D ? refused in all cases to join his fellow lodgers in their 'festive sprees' or larrikinisms; and as a result gained their dislike. He became the victim of many practicl jokes, and was always mentioned in language more expressive than polite. Atlast a'splendid opportunity' jeeurred for the perpetration of in ' immense joke' on the un fortunate D ? . Inaccordance wiih. the polity of the corporate body with which he was con aeeted, he was about to be...

Burning Lenses and Mirrors. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 26 July 1878

Burning Lenses and Mirrors. There are few things in nature we enjoy more than sunshine, and yet just because we may posses it every day, and it costs us nounng, tnere are few things probably we appreciate less. But some times his beams fall rather too hotly upon us, and then we think of them and yet how small an idea do the generality of persons form of the vast heat there is stored up in the sun's rays. If a person moves about in the sunshine, he is conscious of an equal amount of heat wherever he goes. He does not, however, carry the heat he feels about with him : neither does the heat follow him. It is fresh heat which he feels emanating from fresh rays. iVo people of equal size receive between them twicette heat that one does ; an3|l|||p%%x-uld throw upon eithsppisbn the heat received by tEe^bther, he would feel double as hot, of course. If the direct rays of the sun fall upon the bulb of a thermo meter, they will readily raise its temperature 40 degrees. Suppose a thermometer t...
