OBITUARY. MR. MURDOCH YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914
OBITUARY. * MR. MURDOCH YOUNG. ■Profound regret was felt at Murtoa on Tuesday when word was received that Mr. Murdoch Young, manager of the Commercial Bank at Dandenong, had died suddenly that day. From the meagre particulars to hand it would appear that Mr. Young had an attack of influenza, and had been suffering for some time from weakness of the heart. Hecollapsed suddenly on Tuesday morn ing, at the bank, the cause of death being heart-failure. Deceased was usually regarded a very healthy man, and his comparatively early death at the age of 56 years, was a shock to all. Thirteen years ago Mr. Young filled the position of manager of the Murtoa Commercial Bank, and it is safe to say that no more popular gentleman ever lived in the community. Both he and his good lady were the beloved of the people, and the feeling was evidently reciprocal, aa only last year Mr. and Mrs. Young and Miss Young paid a visit to Murtoa spending a very happy holiday amongst friends. Mr. Young left Murtoa...

Under the care of his profes sional nurse and the kind attention of his sorrowing mother, Clarry was taken &lt; to Beulah by train on Saturday after- I noon ; but he gradually became weaker, and despite all human aid, he passed peacefully away at ro o'clock on Sun day evening, a victim to the terrible scourge consumption. Clarry was a well-grown lad of 16^ years of age, and a year ago was a smart pupil of St. Patrick's College, Ballarat, with every promise of a bright future. He was attacked by a cold which settled on bis lungs, and although the best of medical skill was requisitoned, the insidious disease set in, and could not be shaken off. Clarry was an affectionate and loving son, and highly popular with all his co...
REV. WILLIAM MOORE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 July 1914
REV. WILLIAM MOORE. Another painful shock to the Murtoa community was the sad news of the sudden death of the highly-respected ; Methodist minister, the Rev. William Moore, which occurred at Clunes last Thursday evening. It is reported that - Mr. Moore, who was apparently in. good health, hurried to the railway station to meet the Rev. John Thomas, B.A, president of the Methodist Conference, who was expected by the train from Ballarat, to pay an official visit to Clunes. When Mr. Moore was near the station, he was observed to fall to the ground. Several people ran to his i assistance and a doctor was sent for, but the medical man, when he arrived, could only pronounce life extinct, death being due to heart failure, from which he suffered. Mr. Moore will remain in affectionate remembrance at Murtoa, where he was ! repeatedly re-called by the Methodist congregation until he had spent the | lengthened period of six years amongst them. He was a powerful preacher, and an earnest worker i...

MR. MICHAEL,MORRIS. It will be learnt with deep regret that the illness which seized Mr. Michael Morris a few days ago termi nated fatally on Tuesday at the Com mercial hotel Ararat, where he was stricken down. Mr. Mick Morris ®(as he was familiary termed) was in business as a general storekeeper for many years in Minyip, and was a councillor of the shire of Dunmunkle.

Quite recently, when the officials at Victoria Station, Nottingham, Were examining the wheels of a Manchester to London express, at three o'clock a.m., they were sim ply flabbergasted to find a boy hanging firmly to part of the me chanism of the brakes. The lad was absolutely stiff with cold and exposure, and told the ollicials that he had. travelled in that manner all the way from Manchester, a distance of eighty miles.

Horses and Men. » A Boston man tells of an inno cent farmer who onco so out n. phrenologist at cho Hub nn>i r&ked that his "bumps fia -road." In revealing: to Uio farmer Ills temperament as sho.vn i»v Hie' aforesaid bumps, the professor said :— " Your tastes are _the simple, homely ones of the farmer. You, are a farmer, are you not ? Ah ! I thought so. And I, am right as to your tastes, am I not ? You are sadly deficient in judgment, and j have little knowledge of human na [ ture. Your innocent and trustful | disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your I own pcrfect honesty prevents you from cither suspecting or defraud ing anyone." j The following week, it appeal's, the j phrenologist bought a horse from the innocent, farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, it had beon made to appear young and skittish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £5 for the ani mal, he contrived without diffi culty to unload him oil the pro fessor for £15....

A Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
A Gentleman. It is almost a definition of a gentleman to say he is one who never inflicts pain. This descrip tion is both refined and, as far as it goes, accurate.' Ho is mainly oc cupied in merely removing the ob stacles which hinder the free and | unembarrassed action of those about; him ; and he eoncurs with their movements.rather thap takes the ini tiative himself. '"His-benefits may bo considered as parallel to what are called comforts or conveniences in arrangements of. a personal na- ; ture, like an easy chair or a good j fire, which do their part in dis- I pelling cold and fatigue, though na ture provides both means of rest and animal heat without them. The true gentleman in like manner carefully avoids whatever may cause ' those vitii whom he is cast—all clashing of opinion, or collision of feeling, all restraint, or suspicion, f or gloom, or resentment ; his great concern being to make everyone at their ease and at . home. He has eyes on nil liis company ; he is tender tow...
SHIN FOR A BACKBONE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
SHIN FOR A BACKBONE, Two very unusual operations were performed recently at a New York hospital. In one ease a man whose spine was broken some while back has had a new lease of life offered him by what might be termed "splicing." A strip of bone three j inches long was taken from his shin and placed in a groove cut in the broken section of his backbone. The other case was that of a small boy who fell from a roof top and fractured his forehead, with the result that part of his brain was exposed. Alter several weeks of treatment it was decided to substi tute celluloid tor the broken bone as the only chance of saving his life. The operation has been per formed, and it is now- thought that there is every likelihood of the boy recovering.— "Standard." "How much do you want for that dog '?" "Twenty-three shillings, guv'nor." "But you asked me a pound yesterday." "Vus, but 'es goru and eatou a chicken since then !" Surnames began to be used first among the nobility in .1200.

Thk Agricultural Society will meet this (Friday) evening to revise and arrange the programme for the annual show to be held on 21st O :tober.

To Make a Bookcase. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
To Make a Bookcase. .—* A bookcase such as eur first dia gram illustrates when white enam elled looks rc-jnavkatiy well—8. fit adornment for any drawing-room, though it may be constructed in a short time by the veriest amateur in .furniture-making. Prices of wood differ in different towns, but taking a fair average, the total cost of a. bookcase, 3ft. C5in. high and 3ft. long, should not exceed 12s., and this in cludes one shilling for enamel. The ends, shelves and top are cut from wood Jin. thick, while the back boards have a thickness of Ain. The latter should be yellow pine, for the defects of this stuff will not be noticeable in the position it oc cupies. The shelves may also be of yellow pine ; but it would be belter to give one halfpenny afoot more and have them, as the ends and top, of canary, which is a wood with a particularly nice surface. For the sake of example, we have taUen iV that the bookcase is one having three shelves, 3ft. 6in. high and 3ft. long; but it is scarce...

£40 for a Tattooed Head. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
£40 for a Tattooed Head. + At one time tattooed heads fetch ed as mud* as; -£30 to .£10 for goocj specimens, said Dr. S. H. Harri son, the curator of the Horniinan Museum at Forrest Hill, in a lec ture on the paint, powder, and per sonal adornments of savages. He was describing the ancient Maori custom of tattooing the head, and said that they always cut oft the head of anyone slain in war, and it was looked upon afterwards as a sacred object. tn process of time collectors began to purchase these heads, and - this led to many murders being committed in order to secure the head and offer it for sale. It then became a practice to tattoo the heads of slaves, so that they might eventually be killed, and their heads sold ; but this had long since been stopped. The wearing of necklaces and ear rings went back many hundreds of years amongst every class of savage and the present use of powder and paint by. them was a continuation of the use of pipeclay ami red ochre centuries ago. In many p...
