The Camera. A MIXTURE FOR BLOCKING-OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
The Camera. »- ? ? A MIXTURE FOR BLOCKING OUT. Indian ink, which is often recom mended for blocking-out negatives, has the drawback that if it is ap plied over any large surface in a thick enough layer to be opaque, it dries with a lot of little cracks, which are only too visible in the print. The following is a mixture which I have found to be quite free from these defects, and very suit able for blocking-out purposes. 'In a small, wide-mouthed bottle a cake of ordinary Indian ink is placed, to gether with two ounces of red writ ing-ink. After the lapse of a fe- ' days the ink will have softened, and can be mixed by shaking. To the mixture so prepared about a dram of a strong solution of gum arabic is added.'
WHY RAIN FOLLOWS LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
WHY RAIN FOLLOWS LIGHTNING. The downpour of rain that some times follows a flash of lightning is usually supposed to be due to the coalescence of fine drops on losing their electrical charge, but Professor Laine, a Finnish observer, concludes that the thunder jars the drops to gether. Near Vasa, a heavy thun derstorm came up from the east late one afternoon, and as the sun was unclouded, a 6rilliant 'double rain bow appeared in the east for half an hour, arching from horizon to horizon. At each roll of thunder the rainbows seemed to be much shak en, the edges being displaced and the colors blurred. This could not be due to the lightning, and it seem ed that the same cause might en large the raindrops arid disturb the rainbows.
A WONDERFUL INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
A WONDERFUL INVENTION. A test on the IlHnois Central Rail road of a new device for picking up and delivering mail by fast trains is about to be made. If it will do all that its inventor claims it is certainly a wonder. He tells the Chicago pa pers that in a recent test of the ma chine a live pig weighing 651b. was delivered at Carrollton, Kentucky, the home of the inventor, without the slightest injury from a train run ning twenty-five miles an hour.
LONG DISTANCE WIRELESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
LONG DISTANCE WIRELESS. Mr. Marconi has made an impor tant discovery regarding longdist ance wireless telegraphy as the re sult of experiments recently carried out during a voyage to Argentina. An official of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company states that ex periments rendered the possibilities of' the system practically limitless. Mr. Marconi took with him on his voyage a receiving instrument and a kite, and made arrangements for the transmission to the ship of mess ages from the stations at Clifden, in Ireland, and Glace Bay, Novia Sco tia. The kite was flown by means of a long length of wire, and a mes sage was received in London from the inventor stating that he had been successful in receiving messages by means of the kite and wire at a dis tance of 3,500 miles in the day time, while but for the fact that a storm arose and made the flying of the kite impossible, messages could have been received at an even greater dis tance. The sending of a receiving wire to a much greater...
THE LATEST FLY-CATCHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE LATEST FLY-CATCHER. The ordinary fly-trap is not pleas ing to the eyes, despite its utility, so a Frenchman has devised a no velty. It resembles a wind-mill in exterior appearance, and is very artistic. Within it has a series of cups, each filled with some attractive suosuance. 1 ne ny enters tne wind mill door, and proceeds to regale himself ; the cups revolve, and the visitor finds himself under a grating which alarms him and he flies up wards;'. He reaches a cone tower, through an opening which puzzles him when he wishes to retreat, and remains a prisoner until the execu tioner arrives to dispatch him and his fellow prisoners.
CUTLERY WITHOUT STEEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
CUTLERY WITHOUT STEEL. At the meeting of the American Chemical Society at San Francisco in July, Mr. Elwood Havnes, of Kokomo, Indiana, described a new alloy of cobalt and chromium, com posed by himself, and exhibited ar ticles made of it, which has remark able qualities. It is non-oxitlisab!e, has a tensile strength and elastic limit greater than that of untreated steel, and is capable of being made into edge tools little if at all inferior to those made of steel. Pocket knives, cold-chisels, and even razors, have been made of the alloy, in vary ing proportions of cobalt and chro mium, which withstand sever' tests. In appearance a pocket blade knife differs not at all from that of steel, but there is not a particle of iron in it.
HOUSE FULL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
HOUSE FULL. A new system makes it possible for the ticket-teller of a theatre to know just which seats are in use and which vacant. Each seat is re presented by a tiny electric light on a plan of the theatre under the glass top of the selling counter. The lamp representing each seat burns as long as the seat is vacant, and an electrical contact on the seat extin guishes the lamp when it is occu pied. According to the inventor, the ticket seller may display an 'all scats occupied' sign when every lamp is dark, and may sell addition al admission tickets whenever any lamp is again glowing, indicating that patrons have left their seats. But what about those persons who only leave their seats temporarily?
AN OIL TEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
AN OIL TEST. 1 A good test for oil is to place single drops in line upon a piece of plate glass, about 8 inches wide and 24 inches to 30 inches long, one end being raised about 6 inches to 8 inches, to /form an inclined plane. The drops of oil start from the top of this inclined plane upon a race with each other. The first day sperm oil will be found in the rear, but after a while it will catch up and overtake the rest. An oil hav ing a light body runs quickly and dries quickly, but an oil thai has both a body and a free flow will readily be directed by this test. An oil may have a good body, and yet may have a tendency to gum badly ; while quality will also be easily de tected upon the glass. The oils shouM be covered from dust while these tests are being made.
COWS PUMP WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
COWS PUMP WATER. An inventor in Kansas has hit up on the ingenious scheme for making cattle do their own pumping when they wish for a drink of water. The path that leads up to the watering trough terminates in a treadmill, which is connected by suitable gear ing to the pump. As the treadmill oners tne oniy means 01 access 10 the trough, the animal is obliged to operate the pump while it is taking a drink. One of the advantages of this system is that each animal is assured of having fresh water to drink. A valve is provided which discharges the water automatically when the animal leaves the treadmill.
RAISING THE WIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
RAISING THE WIND. A stenographer has just invented an ingenious desk tool that not only performs the work of the ordinary eraser, but blows away the particles of paper and the dust, cleansing the surface of the paper. At one end of the eraser proper is a small egg shaped'bulb, the neck of which is clasped over the eraser. Through the eraser runs a i-i6th inch bore or air passage. In use the bulb lies easily in the palm of the hand, with the fingers clasping the eraser in the customary way. In making an erasure one proceeds as usual, after which, by compressing the bulb, a jet of air is directed at the rubbing point.
FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
FRIENDS. It is not the seeing one's friends, the having them within reach, the ?hearing of and from them, which makes- them ours. Many a one has all that, and yet 'has nothing. It is the- believing in them, the depend ing on them, assured that they are true and good to the core, and there lore could not but be good ana true towards everybody else— ^ourselves included. Aye, whether we deserve it or not; It is not our deserts which are in question but their good ness, which once settled, the rest follows as a matter of course. They would be untrue to themselves y if they were insincere or untrue to us.
HOW TO ROLL MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
HOW. TO ROLL MUSIC. To roll up a piece of music is obvi ously a simple operation, but at the same time one that is more often done in a wrong manner than cor rectly. The tendency is to roll it with the title-page inside so as to protect it, but the result is that when the music is put on a stand it is apt to roll offi If instead, it is rolled with the title-page outwards, it will cling to the music stand and be eas ier of manipulation.
INDICTMENT OF THE FLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
INDICTMENT OF THE FLY. . A very proper reminder that it is our duty to take precautions to minimise the dangers which menace our lives is given by Mr. E. Whit field Crofts in the 'English Illus trated Magazine.' Now, when it comes to the house fly, says the writer, although there has already been accumulated a con siderable body of evidence showing beyond the shadow of a doubt that it is responsible for the conveyance of pernicious germs and of repulsive non-pathogenic micro-organisms in to our dwellings, and oh to our food arid persons, the general public are as yet woefully ignorant on the sub ject, although it is recognised that the fly is an unmitigated nuisance, more especially perhaps by those with bald pates on which the nimble insect delights to gambol. The pertinacity of flies has passed into proverbs, for they return fear lessly again and again to the attack. Homer, by the way, describes one of his mighty heroes as being .'like un to a fly in his courage and determi nation...
FINLAND AS IT IS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
FINLAND AS IT IS. , In 'Travel and Exploration' a writer on Finland, who evidently knows the country an fond, calls at tention to the popular misconception; of- Finland arid = the Finns, and quotes some amusing structures of Mr. Mac Cullum Scott: ?. ' 1 1 * «v _ _ 'i ? ; ? 11- J ? ? ? 3 ? jno aouDL Due unt/ravenea reauer —but then the magazine - does not appeal to these— is apt to associate vaguely Finland with Lapps and Es quimau dogs. 'To. these the first glimpse of the beautiful city of HeL singfors must indeed come as a pleas ing surprise. Indeed, the average reader thinks of Finland- as- a snowy waste, where the' few fur-clad in habitants contrive to prolong their Existence on whale blubber. The reindeer is supposed to provide the chief means of locomotion, and the polar bear to dispute the mastery of the land with man. In reality, Finland is Arctic only in the winter. In summer the climate rivals that of the south of England. The land is covered with waving forests of pine and...
