THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
THE J)EAI) SEA A HEALTH RESOKT. i Sir .John Gray Hill, a. Palestine explorer, believes that the curative value of the waters of the Dead Sea will some day make its shores a place of resort in the winter months for curative purposes. " I have found the use of the Dead Sea water most invigorating," he says. "I get a supply at my house brought in old petroleum tins on donkey back, and use it somewhat diluted, for my morning tub." It may be some time before the inva lid tide sets that way, but the other attractions of the country should aid its popularity." "Does the baby talk yet ?" asked a friend of the family of the little brother, v. "No," replied the little brother, disgustedly. -"He don't need' to talk. All he has to do is yell,. and he gets everything in the house , worth having,.'-' 1933.

To Tell the Age of an Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
To Tell the Age of an Egg. The method, explained below, of easily ascertaining whether an egg is fresh or otherwise, comes from tho Agricultural Society of Saxony. All the apparatus required is a ves sel filled with water. Placed in tho water, the egg, if fresh, will remain resting at the bottom of the vessel in a horizon tal position. If, however, the egg is not quite fresh, it. will rest with the big end raised higher than tho small end, ana the highor the big end is raised the older is the egg. An egg three weeks old rests diago nally at the bottom of the water. A three month3 old egg stands actually poised on its small «nd. An egg that Is mora than thrco months old will float. The reason why tlio egg acts thus, and itself answers the question. "How old are you ?" is simple. As an egg gets older it—unlike some persons—becomes more buoyant. The water contained in the white" of tho egg evaporates, and this causes the empty space at the thick end- of every egg- to become enlarged. T...
MUSIC AND LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
MUSIC AND LABOUR. f ■ An interesting development in con nection with the loud-speaking tele phono is its use for distributing music during working hours in fac tories, warehouses, and other institu > lions where men are engaged in, work of a monotonous character. It lias long been known that 'work requiring mechanical skill without the necessity of mental concentra tion can be promoted by supplying the workers with some kind of plea sant amusement that will not take the attention from the. work, and the loud-speaking telephone ap pears to make this possible on a sc&lo not hitherto thought of.
WIRELESS WAVES AND BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
WIRELESS WAVES AND BIRDS. r Observations made in parts of the world where there are many wire less stations indicate that birds are disturbed in a singular way by the wireless waves. It is stated that gulls are apparently the princi pal sufferers, but that also large numbers of doves are in some way prevented from finding their way home when there are wireless sta tions in the line cV flight. This strange phenomenon is attributed to some effect of the ether waves not yet understood.
Tuning-Fork Tests. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
Tuning-Fork Tests. 1 The tuning-fork is the latest mar vel of medicine. Dr. .James Can tile, a doctor who learned many st range clinical secrets during his adventures in China, and who is to-day one of our greatest experi mentalists in the field of tropical medicine, has discovered^ that the tuning-fork can provo of great help to physicians. By vibrating a tun ing fork and moving it about against the body, the density of the organs situated beneath can be gauged almost to a hair's breadth. "The- fork used gives out the note of C sharp; it has a specially-de signed striker attachment, so that it need not be removed from its position for the purpose of revi brating. Pr. Cantile in certain cases com pared the results of his tuning fork method with those obtained by means of X-rays, and found that ihe former were absolutely accurate. He believes that tho'method will be very useful, when dealing with bro ken ribs und other bones, and he is now trying to tabulate the different sounds made...
Colouring Copper. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
Colouring Copper. Copper and brass lend themselves readily to a colouring- process an'l may be worked to all shades .imagin able, excepting the lighter shades, which aro lost on a copper surface, as that metal cannot be given a tint lighter than its natural colour, says a correspondent of Sheet Metal Shop. Zinc colours fairly well sometimes, through a narrow range, • while tin is a hard metal to handle as regards oxide colours. Copper' can bo carried through the entire range of shades/ from a very light copper colour, to the ^darkest brown, or even black, by merely oxidising the surfacc of the metal. Make a paste of iron oxide - and graphite, with wood alcoh^ or with plain water, and apply this to the article, which is then heated in an oven or over a gas flame. It is better to use alcohol, as it dries out much x quicker. The colour ob tained will depend on the amount of iron oxide mixed ■ with the gra-. phite, and the length of time the heat was maintained. The more oxide in the co...
The Song of the Shirt. NEW VERSION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 19 June 1914
The Song of the Shirt. NEW VERSION* That there is a distinctly humor ous side, even to Antarctic explo ration, is illustrated by many amus ing incidents which Mr. Justieo Murray and Mr; George Marston relate in their book* "Antarctic Days" (Melrose). Both these gentlemen belonged to Sir Ernest Shackleton's last expe dition, and they relate how one of tho members, a genius, "hit upon tho plan whereby you can always have a clean shirt, even if you pos sess only two—always,without wash ing', bo it understood. You put on a shirt ; in a week or two it be comes dirty ; you don the other one, and wear it till it is so much dir tier than the first that tho first is clean by comparison, and you revert to it, and so on, ad infinitum." A makeshift in regard to trousers was equally amusing. "Finding tho trousers issued to tho shore party too complicated for overyday wear, or being-, for some other reason, un happy in them, Mac determined to make himself a pair out of a Jaeger blanket. With the ...
The "Commercial" in an Indian Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914
■ The "Commercial" in an Indian Bazaar. Popular conception of India -is of | necessity based on what illustrated \ papers dish up for us, and as they seem to prefer in the. main some of the imposing buildings and streets , in the European quarters of Bom- j bay and Calcutta, varied occasion-; ally with views &lt;nf the famous show-| places, such as the Taj at Agra, | or some notable Mosque or Tcm- 1 pie, with which the country abounds, j we naturally think of India on the. same broad lines as tho pictures ! visualise for us. j But this is not the real Tndia ; to i get to its heart you must leave j the broad streets of European com- ! morce, and dive into its bazaars, : where ■ the teeming millions of na- ; tives still live to-day exactly as they did hundreds of years ago, and as they will, in all likelihood, be found hundreds of years hence, for the placid fatalism of Eastern tem perament abhors change and innova tion, and calmly defies all the laws of hygiene and sanitation...

Quite Correct. t He was one of those inquisitive, loquacious strangers who, not con tent with telling- you of all their doings and achievements, insist on learning all your secrets. And poor Jones . found; himself alono with tho man in the com partment of a railway train which ran without a stop from Crewe to London. Having asked countless questions concerning his fellow-traveller's busi ness and the object of his journey, the stranger began to make inquiry about his family. " Well, if you really want to know," said the exasperated Jones, "I'll tell you. I have a wife and five children, but I've never seen one of them." "Never seen one of them ?" began the stranger. "But—but " "I tell you I've never seen one of them," repeated Jones. "I've been awny from home for a week, and my youngest kiddie was born yes terday." A man rang the bell at "Willie Budd's house one day, and "Willie, aged eight, answered it. " 3s Mr. Budd in ?" said the man. "I'm Mr. B:idd," said Willie, "or do you want...
Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSONI. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914
Rare British Moth. m entomologists and the thompsoni. This moth, which is a striking example of the curious colour variation common among insects, birds, ancl animals, is a special ob ject of interest to entomologists, in iew of the recent discovery of a new and third variety by Mr. J. Thompson, a Chester entomologist. This form of the insect appears at present to bo confined to Dcla mere Forest, Cheshire, and is very rare. It is named Thompsoni, after its discoverer, and is black, with a conspicuous white border to its wings. In its second variety the moth exhibits the first culminating stage of variation, and is black, with grey wing fringes, a change to a darker huo from the common or ordinary type. The sccond variety, of which we al so give an illustration, is named Kobsoni, of Hartlepool. Neither of these varieties, however, is an abrupt transition, for between the typical insect and, each of them are var ious intermediate forms. From THE THOMPSON!, THE RARE BRITISH MOTH WHICH ...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914
PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. ; ( ; ' ■ TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. The first important opoch in the history of modern British labour politics was the formation, in 1834, of the Grand National Consolidated Trades Union, . a really important association, numbering as it did half a million adherents, who represented every branch of labour, including agriculture. Even n'omcn's unions worn affiliated. The tremendous possibilities of such a united body of workers naturally aroused the attention of the governing classes, and a prosecution was instituted for "unlawful conspiracy," of which the most salient incident is that of tho Dorchester labourers. At this period, when the average wage of the English farmhand was 10.9. a week, the Dorset laborers re ceived 7s. Half a dozen of such men, Methodists and local preachers, started a "Orund Lodge of the Na tional Friendly Society of Agri cultural Labourers'' at Tolpuddlo (Dorsetshire). Some farmers insti tuted a prosecution', for "conspi ra...

Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 26 June 1914
Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. Pine-needle oil is a product de rived from the leaves of our pines (says the "Scientific American"). It. has been extracted for a great many years and is wtell known the world over as a remedial agent against rheumatism and allied com plaints. It is a volatile, colourless liquid obtained by distillation of fresh needles, young twigs, and one year-old cones of our western and southern yellow pines. In order to produce oil of the best quality, fresh green needles must be collect ed during- the spring of the year, probably in the beginning of June. Pine-needle pickers go from tree to tree and select the young, thrifty green leaves fit the ends of twigs, which yield about 0.55 por cent. Of volatile oil. Those of old trees, which are dry and tough, producc much less and oi much poorer qual ity. A number of years ago this oil was supplied by a number of small stills or ordinary pharmaceutical distil leries. Tho still itself is a very simply constructed appa...
