THE MOSQUITO EVIL. TURNING THE INSECTS TO PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

THE MOSQUITO EVIL. - ■ "• ' .1. TURNING THE INSECTS TO PROFIT. Employing herds of bats to de stroy mosquitoes is tlia newest pro cedure in the campaign against ma laria. It has been put into effect in parts of Texas by Dr. Charles A. Z. Campbell, who recently com municated an interesting report upon it to the International i'nsti ; tute of Agriculture in Rome, j Dr. Campbell observed that tlw bat's favourite food is mosquitoes, and that lie needs a large number of them to keep him in good condition. Tie also inhabits tho caves in which the insects take shelter in the day time, and lie is never bitten by them. By repeating tins observation sev eral days running, and making careful count of tho undigested re mains of mosquitoes, Or. Campbell calculated that each bat ate on an average 500 mosquitoes a day. Now, thought he, an army of a few thou sand bats would be a great assist ance in the war against mosquitoes. He considered how squadrons of bats might be gathered together into one b...

A Remarkable Duel. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

A Remarkable Duel. + There is always something weirdly, fascinating in the accounts of ties; perate .struggles to the death be tween duellists, when often chance, and not skill, settled the encounter. One such enso was that in which Villoneuve, a noted duellist of France, insultod the sister of a young Englishman named Talbot, who thereupon struck him. As a consequence a duel waa fought on March 5, 1805. The conditions that there should be two pistols—one loaded, the other not. They were to be put into a handkerchief and drawn out by chance by the parties, who were afterwards to lake their stand at a distance of only one pace from each other. The first choice fell to the lot of the Frenchman, who endea voured to choose the heaviest ; t.he other was given to Talbot. They look their respective grounds, and so close that the muzz-le of each man's pistol touched his ad versary. When both combatants were ready (ho seconds advanced and took a liust farewell. Talbot shook his friends' hand...

A Dangerous Gyroscope. . The gyroscope Is constructed scien tifically, and is, while moving round its axle, executing a circular move ment round a strong pillar sup porting/it ; a weight at the back insures tho stability of tho appa ratus. The diameter of the wheel is about 13ft.; it is built like a bicycle wheel, and bears on one side a metallic fac ing joined to the axle by eight gir ders of iron ; on the facing - is fixed a track composed of small wooden bars, giving more "grip" to the tyres. i The bicycle is somewhat similar to ordinary machines ; the handles are vertical, the front fork atraighter, and the wholo a few pounds heavier than ordinary bicycles. The performer entering it on his bicycle, commences by riding rapidly thus impressing a reverse movement to the gyroscope ; when this lias at tained a certain speed, he blocks Iii.s wheels by a powerful effort of the legs ; the gyroscopo therefore pulls hi/n backwards to a certain , height.

Testing Milk on the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

Testing Milk on the Farm. To illustrate how a test is made, let it be supposed that a man has a dairy of ten cows, and suspects that four of the animals are "robbers," and wishes to find out what they - are giving in money value. The es . sentials needed for carrying out the test are a centrifugal machine re volving at a hi&h speed whereby the bottle containing the milk can be whirled, and n few pimple pieces of glassware. The cost of the en tire outfit, large enough for a ten cow dairy, will lie about £2. There are seven makes of machines, all hav ing their good points. Tn the long run, however, the best machine will be the simplest, and the same may "be said of the glassware., Test bot tles are needed for both new and skini milk and cream, and it will be , well to have three of each of these kinds on hand. Correct results will depend upon having a good sample. 7n order to get such a sample of -any kind of milk or cream suitable precautions must be taken, as the fat globule...

WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914

>' WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. v r. • (By B. C. BUCKS, THE UPSIDE - DOWN AVIATOn.) ' j FJying is a man's business, and a . woman hasn't the right type of mind to engage in it successfully. That is the chief reason why I don't approve oC. girls becoming aviators. On more than one occasion when I ; j have been up in the air with a lady passenger, the machine has side-slip ;■ pod or struck an air-pocket, and •%%; though I won't say we have been ;VTwithin an inch of death, we have V certainly bocn in great danger. These things happen to the best airmail, : - and cannot be avoided. Having righted the machine and descended to earth, the pilot steps out with nerves all tingling, and he offers a silent prayer for his lucky escape. The lady passenger jumps out, her face wreathed in smiles, and gushingly remarks upon the aw full.-. topping trip she has made, and what a funny little -turn the machine took half a minute ago. She has never realised that her' very life hung upon a thread, and oni...

In the first place, ho was wearing a well-cut suit , ol dark blue serge, that had been part of the captain's wardrobo, and being a tall man, his clothes fitted Josh fairly well; also he had shaved both his moustache and the long straggling beard, and was now clean shaven, which made a complete al teration in his appearance, giving him a smarter look. "Mr. Zetman, Mr. Hetherington wishes to see you..I have drawn up a wiir at his request, and he has just signed it in my presence and that of the two mates. I don't think he can last long, poor fellow," ho said. "I'm afraid not, captain. I'll go to his cabin and flinging away the cigar, Josh descended the stairs...

He had walked many, miles, and the - sun was blazing as only nn Austra lian sun can blaze, and the wayfarer who had worked many weary months at a; claim and at last given it up in disgust, then set of! hoping to And .i spot that would give him some re turn for his toil. But the placc to which he was bound was still many miles distant, and he was weary and footsore, therefore the sight of this unexpected shelter caused him to ex claim with thankfulness. - It was not often he. thought or spoke of the Almighty, not boing a God-fearing man or a swearer, and the words were almost a surprise to himself.
