Where Sound Cannot be Heard. A MYSTERY OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914
Where Sound Cannot be Heard. --------+-- -4 A MYSTERY OF THEI SEA. It is a singular and somewhat disturbing fact that there frequently exists at sea, in the urea covered by a fog, what might be described as a zone of silence; that is, a belt of space in which sound cannot be heard. ]t is the only thing of all othlers most dreaded by vuariners. There may he danger ahead--say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessel'-s course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or light ship,. is hlanketLed by the fog, but the crew at least expect to hear the waxrinig blast of the foghorn. No such blast reaches themn. The sound is completely lost in the silence zone, and the tirst intiination they have of the ldanger is when the ves sel crashes on the rock. To this cause undoubtedly may be attributed sonime of the great disas ters at sea which have puzzled many shore people. There was the case of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Casqluct l ocks, off Alderney. T'i'he S...
