To Measure Distance Between Two Objects at a Distance
Cut three poles six, eight, and ten feet long and peg them to-
gether in a triangle. A B C is a right angle according to the
laws of mathematics if the legs of the triangle are six, eight, and
ten. Place the right angle on the shore, the side A B pointing
to the inner side of the ﬁrst object D (say a tree), and the side
B C as nearly as possible parallel with the line between the
two trees. Putin a stake at B, another at C, and continue this
line toward K. Now slide the triangle along this till the side
GFpointstoE,andthesideH GisinlinewithCB. The
distance from D to E, of course, is equal to B G.

Weather Wisdom
When the dew is on the grass,
Rain will never come to pass.
When the grass is dry at night,
Look for rain before the light.
