SOME CURIOUS EFFECTS OF MAGNETISM. The recent order of the British Admiralty whereby sentries are forbidden to carry side arms when on duty in the dynamo flats of her Majesty's ships appears to be due (saya an English journal) to some experiments which are' said to have demonstrated that bayonets belong* iiiS? to the marines have become highly xoag-j netised owing to close proximity to the dynamos- employed for lighting purposes. Both magne-J tic and electric influences may easily be per*j verted, and sometimes with startling results., Not long- ago a passenger oil board an oceanj steamer folded up his iron deck chair before retiring, and, as the night was stormy, left its, inside the pilot-house. The man at the wheel: presently became aware of something wrong with the compass, and before the delinquent, deck chair was pounced on the ship was half an hour out of her course. An equally well authenticated case is that of a learned professor who took his head student out testing one day. It was winter time, and as a cold wind blew through the station the head student kept on his bat while taking insulation readings. The result showed an unprecedented degree of in- sulation, one, in fact, greater than infinity, and the professor, as well as the student,was amazed and mystified. The former, however, repeated the test and obtained results much less credi- table to the firm who supplied the cables, but still very good. The student had ignored the fact that the felt hat he wore was stiffened with a steel wire in the brim. -K
