High Temperatures and the Eye. The naked cyo ban always - boon the means employed /or .indicating' high temperature, such ns the melt ing of metals or heating them for rolling or forging. . Until tho py rometer made its appearance (says the "Ilardwaroman") the eye was the only method employed for de termining the temperature.

Food of the Kestrel. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
Food of the Kestrel. i ? During a peregrination (says a correspondent) in the Island of Mull I was attractod by a kcstrol hawk flying out from a rock. After a somowhat diligent search, there being many rocks, I dlscovcrod tho cyrio, and in It were three young kestrels at that stage when the brown feathers aro showing fairly well among the white down. Think j iog this vraa an admirable oppor tunity of seeing what aro the food supplies of theee birds, I hid at a distaneo to note what tho parents brought to their nestlings. Even with my binoculars, however, I was unable to discover, and the follow ing day I adopted different tactics. Shooting some young rabbits 1 (again approached tho oyric, when the pa rent birds were away. As in tho habit uf these birds of prey, the" young mn\s faced me with open beak and claw's, but after 1 had dropped bits of warm meat into their open mouths they naturally, after feeling and tasting tho tit bits, swallowed them,, and,, like Oliver Twist, were ready...

THE BURIED CITIES. (I!y ItEV. 13. 1\ WAIIDY.) Ail Australian visiting ^rjeyloh cannot but be impressed by the nn-. li(|ully and historical romance of much that he comes across there. In his own country he con point to no monument dating 'hack liiore, than n century, whilst in Ceylon the age of everything is counted by the thousand years instead of the hundred. One explanation' of the giant footprint on Adam's l'cak takes him back to the very beginning of the w'orld's history, and if he is sceptical about- accepting this, he is on surer ground when he visits (Jalle, -where for thousands of years the merchants of the world havo come to trade, and If to-day the harbour of Oallc is deserted for that of Colombo, it is practically certain that Guile is the site of the ancient Tarshish, from which Solomon drew mnny of his. treasures.

CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 April 1914
CORHKCTLNC. FAULTS XX YOUSp CALVES. One of tiie most dillicult habits to overcome where ;i number of young calves aro running ill a loose box is that ot sucking one another, writes an English correspondent. There is a wide difference of opinion regarding the results which may occur. Many cluim that small quantities of liair arc taken into the stomach, and this is finally matted into a firm bail, which may clog in the stomach or bowels of the calf, resulting in death. The reason for this habit ot sucking may in some measure suggest a re medy. When we feed calves with milk frtrn the pail, they drink so rapidly that they fail to relieve the mouth of the saliva which naturally mixes with the milk, while tliej are suck ing. lii order to relieve their mouths of the secretion which organs of di gestion demand, they will seek some thing to suck which will rid their mouths of the saliva, which has been retained to a large extent, and their favourite object is some portion of the . calf next ...
