Trade Terms that Tease. SOME QUEER TITLES THAT PUZZLE THE BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914

Trade Terms that Tease. ♦— SOME QUEER TITLES THAT ■ PUZZLE THE BENCH. "'"What do you mean. by a yard of ..... apology?" recently asked a metro politan magistrate of a young dra per's assistant, who had used tho LV. phrase in giving- evidence in. a shop lifting case. . ■UTien it was explained to his wor ship that a yard of apology was a . common term in the drapery trade for a yard of ribbon, there were broad smiles in court. The term arises from customers who have given a good deal of trouble buy ing a yard of ribbon as an excuso '* for being in the shop at all. It is only one of many descriptions used iii .various trades. Cheap fui' uiiifls, for example, are known as "bunn-J'-hugs," through a suspicion that tho originally adorned the back of a rabbit.- ^Col lars are "neck-armour," umbreifa?—^ are always "mushes," and veils are "fake-foils." Because it often con ceals dilapidated furniture, chintz is commonly .known f.as "poverty." In the boot trade ' big," , flat-goi.ed, ■ shooting...

Tunnel Manholes. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914

Tunnel Manholes. JL In all railway tunnels refuge or manholes are let into the walls to enable platelayers and others to step inside for safety during the passing of a train. In ordinary cases there is generally enough room between the railway line and j the wall for a person to stand without being in any danger, but in the event of a goods train pass mg with a loose, flapping water proof cover, it would mean prob able death unless the manholes were within easy reach. These refuges are usually about 1ft. wide and 6ft. high,, and are recessed". into the wall about 2ft. They "arc: generally about 20 yards apart-, "and arc spaced alternately on either side ("staggered" it is called), so that, a person has only 10 yards or so ' to run either way to get into a> position of safety. "It's a risky business, making pointed remarks about anyone." " Why so ?" "Because you may have to swallow them,"'

Fathoms Down. 'MID THE RATTLE AND ROAR ABOARD THE SUBMARINE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914

Fathoms Down. . . —» 'MID THE RATTLE AND ROAR ABOARD THE SUBMARINE [WORK. They call it a, boat; but It Is unlike any boat that was ever , built. J At first it seems to be nothing i more - than a diabolical contrivance ' specially designed to burst your i eardrums. The noise is deafening. ' You have to shout to bo heard. When the submarine dives, the sound is like the clatter of hail on a corrugated iron roof. A tiny nail dropped on the outside of the steel hull reverberates within like a clang ing bell. Over all rises the brood-. it)g buzz of electric fans arid motors and the "pop-popping" of gasolene and air-driven machinery exhausts. As you grow accustomed to <the din and dimness you begin to find your way about with your eyes. WHERE PERIL LURKS. Your anticipations are completely falsified.

Speaking the Day's News. THE LATEST THING IN NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914

Speaking the Day's News. — THE LATEST THING IN NEWS PAPERS. I Will the "News-teller" supplant the 1 newspaper ? Will the time come when the average man will learn what is happening to the world and his wife, not with, his eye glued to the newspaper propped against the marmalade-pot as he consumes the morning rasher, but with ear pressed against the receiver of a J telephone • through which he will | hear all the new's and gossip ? I ■ To some it may seem a remote possibility, but in view of the fact | that for the last twenty years a ! telephonic daily has been in active i operation at Budapest, Hungary, I and, furthermore, that preparations for a similar entei-prise are in an advanced stage in London, while it | is also being introduced into Berlin j and.Taris, it will be obvious that the telephonic daily,, like the cine ma newspaper, which shows the news on the-screens of the picture palaces every night, has generally arrived. •A GREAT JOURNAL.

Food Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914

Food Reform. —; ^ The normal, healthy man quite rightly does not think much about' .what ho eats so long as it tastes fairly good and there is plenty of it.. There are reasons, howover, why even he should taka an interest in the question of diot reform—a question .which lias become so acutc of late years. The great movement of scientific research and social study have'both made perfectly clear the fact that the majority of the people are not as healthy and as efficient as they might be, and one of the root causes of this is that they do not obtain sufficient food, or that they do not obtain the right kind of food. The last statement applies not "only to the poorer classes, but also, as has been fully shown by Chittenden, Hindhede, and others in recent years the classes with ample means. The groat increase in the frequency of appendicitis, from a few scattered case's fifty years ago to the thou sands of the present day ; the per sistence of the cancer plague ; the continued proportio...

Cause of Earthquakes. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914

Cause of. Earthquakes. •••• /„ • Tiie-'~ ^evalent^iclea^-'.' that earth quakes are chiefly caused by vol canic eruptions 01' explosions is now held by scientists to be wrong. Professor Milne^-one of our greatest authorities on tfi'o:--subject^ays': " ivjiile*admitting a few small earth quakes . to be volcanic in their ori gin, we recognise the majority of th'ese disturbances 'as the result of a sudden fracturing : of the. r'o'cky crust under the influence of bending." This- bending is" brought about by the gradual contraction: of the earth, which is held .to he the chief cause of .mountain, building. The Himalaya's—the highest range of. -mountains-.'in the world—are oi campavRtlyeiy-^yee&iz; geologic for mation, and the "same forces which found these tremendous folds are, no doubt, responsible for the re cent earthquake.
