We refer to lightning rods or con ductors, for the safety and preservation of bnildings from the effects of lifrbtninc-. In all tropical and semi-tropical countries, lightning is vivid and frequent— rain being oftencr attended by it than not. Science has determined that a bur. dished point of steel or platinnm has the magnetic power of attracting light ning at a distance of thirty feet. As there is hardly a f.-ui -loomed cottage in Brisbane of greater length than this, one would cer tainly answer, and even in a building of sixty feet frontage, a lighting rod terminating, or rather starting, from the centre of the roof, would give a »ense and feeling of se curity to the inmates.
