" In less than 18 hours he was reokoning in latitude 54° 20' South."

The discrepancies in the above cases were attributed to •Currents, whether the course of the ship was westerly or easterly, ^liich could not possibly be the case. These navigators, 'believing the world to be globular could not imagine any J*ther way of accounting for the discrepancies between 'ongitude by "dead reckoning," maliing allowance for the S^ipposed shorter longitudes, and that obtained by observation. The explanation is .that the world diverges as the I South is approached, instead of converging, as the theorj teaches.

It has also been shown under "Distances" pageji ofthis ' 'Work, that at latitude 32° south, the distance round the world is about 23,000 statute miles; at latitude 35^" south, the distance round is over 25,000 miles; and still further south, at latitude 37^° south, the distance is 2j,5oo miles, about. J These distances, obtained from ship's logs, cannot disputed; and are altogether against the theory of theJ earth's rotundity. By purely practical data, apart from any? theory, it is shown that the world diverges to the south, an^ that, therefore, it cannot be a globe.

^■P Sir Robert Ball, in his " Story of the Heavens, page ^77. says;

I " We find that by observing the swing of a Pendulum afi

I ditTcrent parts of the earth, we are enabled to determine tbftS

shape of our globe."

This is perhaps one of the greatest fallacies of the globular school, and when looked at without prejudice, is sheer nonsense. A Vibrating Pendulum on a globe with various movements would move with the globe, and could not by any possibility record the movement of the globe to which its supports were fastened.

The following is from " Noad's Lectures on Chemistry," page 4

" All the solid bodies with which we are surrounded ai

ostaotly undergoing changes of bulli, corresponding to th,

variations of temperature The expansioa and contrac-

THE PENDULUM.

eI

tion of metals by heat and cold form subjects of serious and careful attention to chronometer makers, as will appear by ^le following statements:—The length of the pendulum vibrating seconds, in vacuo, in the latitude of London 150" 31' 8" north) at the level of the sea, and at the temperature of dz'-' Fahr. has been ascertained with the greatest precision to be 39'i3Qa9 inches. Now, as the metal of which it is composed is ctmslantly subject to variations of temperature it cannot but happen that its Itnglh is constantly vao^ng, and when it is further stated that if the ' bob' be let down i-ioa of an inch, the clock will loae ten seconds in twenty-four hours; that the elongation of I'looo of an inch will cause it to loose one second per day;' and that » change of temperature equal to 30*^ Fahr. will alter its length i'5ooo part, and occasion an er/or in the rate of going of dgbt seconds per day, it will appear evident that some plan must be devised for obviating so serious an inconvenience."

In the " Figure of the Earth,' e informed as follows;
