MEASURING MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 March 1914

MEASURING MOUNTAINS. Heights of mountains or of airships ■ au be measured by menus of au ordi nary thermometer. The greater the pressure of tho atmosphere on the surface of the water the greater tem perature it takes to boil it. As we rise iu the air, less and less pressure of the air occurs, aud water will boil at a lower temperature than 100 de grees Centigrade (212 degrees Fahren heit). It has been figured out that (or a few miles up for every thous and feet of ascent water will boil one degree lower. Thus if at the bottom of a mountain water hoils at !)9 de crees Centigrade (210 degrees Fahren heit) aud at the top of 9S degrees Centigrade (20S.4 degrees Fahrenheit), the mountain is a thousand feet high. In Government and other .scientific *vork extremely delicate thermometers are now used. They are long, so that, ttie scales may be divided into frac tious of a degree. The entire instru ment for the work is termed a therino barometer, or hypsometer. It con sists of a small metall...

Burnett- (Q.) Notes. (By Brownhawk.) We have just got through the worst period of the Queensland summer. December and January are the only mouths to be feared. The past December opened .with a dry spell and about a fortnight's heat wave. The heat for one or two days registered up to llOin the shade with a "couple of hot nights. About the 10th a terrific thunderstorm came along from the coast. .Several houses were struck by lightuiug, including a villa in Maryborough. With the thunder storm heavy rain fell total'iug 474 points for the month. With the heal of January—which by the way caused a lot of Queensland uatives more discomfort thau myself—an other 535 points of rain fell here. | The result is the country about Byrnestown looks perfect, and about and beyond Gayndah better still, with abuudauce of native grasses. In the south of Queensland below Gympie and in aud about Brisbane as well as Too woo en ba and the most of the Downs country the rainfall has been light, and such crops ...

Items from Punch, ' Punch" welcomed Mr Reid Murphy, P.M., lo Melbourne be cause of bis peculiar proclivities. He is a man who does unusual things, and if they are not always right tliey are almost invariably in teresting. The other day, dealing with a youth who had refused to attend drills, the P.M. insisted on the area officer communicating with the railway department with the view to having the defaulter d is missed. "Every public body in Australia should refuse to employ drill shirker, and every respectable employer should do the same," says Mr Murphy. This is audacious, but is it wise? The State that punishes Its people by turning them into unemployed is cutting off its nose to spite its face. If we can't make the boys drill, is it sane policy to turn round and make them hope less loafers? That would be the effect of tlie Reid Murphy policy. If men can't get work, how are they to get food? Better hang de faulters than starve them to death. Miss E. Cafr is a young lady who with h...

Farming. EFFICIENT AND OTHERWISE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 March 1914

Farming. EFFICIENT AND OTHERWISE The malady that is afflicting the wheat growers has for its symp toms indifference aud inefficiency. For years the average wheat pro duction of Victoria has been be tween 10 and 11.bushels, aud it is not increasing. And the farmers are content to let it remain at that. They could within a few years in crease that average by 50 per cent., and incidentally add L2,500,000 a year to their own banking accounts but they prefer to follow along the track they have smoothed out for themselves, and to complain .that they are receiving no help from the department. They disregard the fact that situated in their very midst are demonstration farms, worked by private individuals, which are of more value to them than the advice of a hundred ex perts. The bureau of Agriculture of the United States, with which is associated the most highly skilled and efficient body of experts in the world, has established a system of demonstration farms as the Uest medium for agricul...
