STOLEN FROM PARK
TWO THERMOMETERS ONE FOUND SMASHED The theft of two valuable thermometers from the Albert Park Government meteorological station was discovered yesterday morning, when the observer, Mr. S. Yallop, arrived to take his readings. One of the instruments, a solar radiation thermometer, was found smashed on the path near the station. The other instrument, a grass minimum temperature thermometer, is still missing. Both instruments are extremely valuable, and it is thought unlikely that there are similar ones in Auckland. It. will be impossible meantime to replace the solar radiation thermometer, which measures actual sun heat, although a substitute may be; found for the other instrument. The loss of the thermometers will mean that the average readings for | 30 or 40 years will be broken, and valuable calculations upset.
