A New Invention. I A remarkable invention pregnant with useful possibilities is the wire less long-dislance inirroiu Its pur pose, in brief, is to convey an image' in the same manner that sounds are ; now communicated. It is a vadical improvement on the old-time camera obscura, a structure in which the real image of an ob ject is projected upon a -white table or other plane surface. Not : only does the new apparatus reflect on a mirror nil objects located and all happenings occurring within a much greater area than the camera obscura, but it operates at night.

Glaciers and Icebergs. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914
Glaciers and Icebergs. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly ; but how many know how they nro formed ? When snow falls in tho lower re gions, or nt high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a largo audience of young folks in tho thea tre of tho lloyal Geographical So ciety at Burlington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So tho layers of snow are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an a%-alanche ; but on a high table land there is no such escape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, because tho lower layers are pressed down by tho groat weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is the es sential feature in the .glacier. First the grains of ice :are no bigger than a pin's head ; but they gradually, as ' the pressure increases, get bigger and bigger, and the large ones absorb tho smaller. The ...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914
FOOTBALL. It was an exciting game at Minyip on ^Monday, when Horsham brought its best team, and Minyip was strengthened by Sprake (2) and Sleith, from Murtoa; Cantwell, Smith and Ryan from War Tacknabeal; and Robb from Rupan yup. During the first quarter the blues were most prominent, being decidedly a smarter team than Horsham, although the latter excelled in marking and pass ing. The home team looked like win ners until Brierly, who was doing great work, got a kick in the ankle and his football was ended for the day. With 17 men they finished the first quarter a goal ahead. Horsham then crowded the play, and at half-time the scores were even. In the third quarter the big fellows forged ahead, and led by 12 points. It seemed all over then, but in the final spurt, Minyip played a big up hill game after Horsham had put on another goal. The blues replied with two goals and there was great excite ment as they seemed to have the game in hand ; but after a couple of singles the bell rang...

To what extremes folk afflicted" with a mania for such popularity will go is well instanced by the case of a young lady of good fam ily, who complained of being con tinually followed by a tall, dark i stranger when out alone.

A NOVEL RAT THAI'. A boy, while playing in the yard close to a grain house, dug a hole and buried ati old-fashioned fruit jug or jur that his mother had throw'n away, says the " Iowa Homestead."

Strangled by an Airship. One of the strangest of the many fatalities which accompanied the conquest of tho air in Germany oc curred on March 5, 1912, and re sulted in the tragic death of the foreman of tho Parseval "advertise ment" airship.

Fair-Haired Flirts. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
Fair-Haired Flirts. 1 "Ninety of every hundred respond ents in divorce cases are blondes," said a celebrnted American lawyer, Mr. Herman I,. Roth, recently. "Blondes are vain. Blondes are fic kle. Blondes love no one well but themselves. Blondes invite flirtation and challenge insult. Blondes bear the trade-mark of the coquette. "They say, in effect, ' Catch me ! I am easily caught.' > A blonde at tracts instant attention because she bears the trade-mark of the flirt. Her golden hair is a challenge. She is the trouble-maker of the world." Mr. George Robinson, another di vorce specialist, adds his quota to the indictment of the bright-haired woman. i "In the first analysis of a man's I emotions," he writes, "even though the man bo a fool, ho wants a woman who is true, and the bru nette is nothing - if not faithful. But it takes a man to win a bru nette. He must put up a fight for her, for she has a mind and will of her own, and a brain superior to that of the blonde. A judge of th...
