He also considered that in a lake of so complicated a form as that of Geneva observations would be required at at least ten different points, and a complete solution of such a case would be analogous to the study of magnetic intensity in the manner suggested by Gauss.

Page 121 - The variations in the luminosity of a " standard " candle will cease to be of importance. Any candle may be taken ; and if it be placed at such a distance from the apparatus that it will give a uniform deflection, say of 100 divisions, the standard can be reproduced at any subsequent time ; and the burning of the candle may be tested during the photometric experiments by taking the deflection it causes from time to time, and altering its distance, if needed, to keep the deflection at 100 divisions.

All these processes are the necessary consequences of the affinities of the phosphorised substances, and, these being known, the phenomena could be predicted, if they were not sufficiently known as phenomena, though hitherto destitute of an explanation. Thus the so-called brain-fungus, the continued protrusion of brain-matter through apertures of the...
