Not Too Great a Price

A CENTURY ago, Michael Faraday, the great physicist, was showing to a guest in his laboratory a curious thing: whenever an electric current began to flow in a wire placed near a compass needle, the needle was diverted.

GARDEN IDEAS Collected in California

CALIFORNIA GARDENS unite in their variety to throw a new light on outdoor living for visitors from east of the Sierras.
