So here you may ' learn how to exterminate uiiwel ' come visitors in the shape of ants, beetles, moths, slugs, and the like. Not a pleasant task alw'nys, but it has to be done, and it's the woman's privilege to do it ! Ants.—Damp a sponge, and sprinkle it with sugar.

TO SAVE THE WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
TO SAVE THE WOUNDED. On that fatal day, February 27th, 1881, M'ajuba Hill was the scene of a marvellous exhibition of valour, and an escape from death which was truly providential. While Cor poral Joseph Farmer, of the. Army Hospital Corps, was attending to the fallen amid a hail of bullets, the doctor and one of the assist ants were struck down nt the same moment. Thinking it was the re sult of all accident, he seized a ban dage "and waved it in the air, in the hope that the Boers would see it and respect the wounded. He was bitterly mistaken, how- I ever.'- The deluge of- lead became more^'-and more fierce. A bullet shattered his wrist, and his right arm dropped helpless to his side. "Never mind, I have another," said the brave fellow, as he picked up the bandage with is left hand and waved, it aloft. An instant later, this arm, too, was shattered. But, undismayed, he continued signall ing with his maimed arms as best he could, miraculously escaping a hundred deaths, until at last...

Hairbreadth Escapes in Battle. SOLDIERS WHO HAVE COURTEE DEATH AND LIVED. BENEVOLENT BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
Hairbreadth Escapes in Battle. — ► SOLDIERS WHO HAVE GOUJITB© DEATH AND LIVED. - BENEVOLENT BULLETS. • In one case a bullet which struck a man on the temple passed harm- j : lessly. over the scalp; in another, a: bullet struck a rib, was deflected, and,'• passing under the skin, found its exit on the opposite side of the body. But perhaps the most sin gular illustrations of the vagaries of bullets were furnished at the battlo of Laing's Nek, from which one sol dier emerged with three bullets and j only two wounds to show for them, two of the balls having en tered tiie same wound. In another case a bullet, entering a soldier's left side, struck one of his ribs and re-emerged from the exact spot where it had entered. But even such bullets were not | quite as benevolent as one of which j Lieutenant Worsley tells the story. | "In one engagement," he says, "one | of our officers got a ball in the right' ear, which came out at the back of the neck ; and though, after a painful illness, he...
QUEENS WHO COULD EARN THEIR OWN LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
QUEENS WHO COULD EARN THEIR OWN LIVING. Apropos of Queen Mary's §ssay in p.'i.i ,.n« on china during her lour of the Potteries, a French contemporary remarks that most present-day queens could earn their living at a pinch. The Queen of the Belgians has taken a medical degree at Leipzig, arrd assisted her father, Duk? Charles Theodore of Bavaria, in his practice as an oculist. Carmen Sylva could, of course/ make a good income as an author, and might obtain a post as secre tary, for in addition to her know ledge of languages, she writes short hand and is an expert tjpist. Another versatile Sovereign is the Queen of Norway, who paints admir ably, trims hats in a style that wonM ensure her a good salary from any high-class milliner, and is a book binder of more than average s'ti'I. The German Empress and Qiki-i Wilhelmina of Holland might ke^T themselves going by painting minia tures. Those who wish to appear wise among fools, among the wise seem foolish.

A BONUS EARNED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
A BONUS EARNED. People at sea bet on all sorts of j contingencies. An emigrant ship from England was recently approaching the Australian coast, and an inter esting event was expected at any moment in the married people's quarters. Considerable speculation and excitement was developed over the question whether the happy event would take place within or without the three-mile limit. A great cheer went up when it was announced that the little stranger was legally an Australian, and had earned the £5 baby bonus of the Commonwealth. A minute or two earlier the child would have been n , native of Stepney, London, to whic'? I parish children born at sea belong.— "Daily Chronicle."

A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. The showman looked worried ,and thoughtful. His menagerie was dense ly crowded, it is true ; but how was he to get them out, so as to make room for those waiting to pay for admission outside ? At length a good idea occurred to . him. Painting'up in large letters on a piece of calico : "This way to the egress," he hung it up at an angle of his show. The simple country people, think ing "egress" was some stranee new animal just added to the collection, passed through the slit in the cur tain, and, to their amazement, found ^ themselves outside the show. Seeing the crowd making its way to the corner where the "new animal" was on show, everybody followed, and the outgoing stream being so great, no one, when once caught in its eddy, could turn back. Then the showman smiled, and let in those waiting to .pay for admis sion. outside the main entrance.
THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. Inventors hav« been working oh the mechanical milker f®r years. Like every other invention of importanca there were necessarily many failures before success crowned the efforts of the man who was able to picture in his mind a machino that would re lieve the dairy farmer of much of the so-called drudgery of his work. To-daj the milking machine is a success. There are unquestionably many, who will tell you otherwise, but the truth of the situation is demonstrated by the machines that are in practical successful operation every day in the year. The mere fact that the use of the milking machine has been discontin ued on some farms may be mislead ing. An illustration will make this clear. A dairy farmer who milks about j 100 cows producing a very high class product which tops the market in a western city installed a machine a few years ago. The expense in this case was an item of considerable im portance. After using the milking" I machine for a time it ...

THE FEDERAL CAMPAIGN. MR. FISHER'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
THE FEDERAL CAMPAIGN. MR. FISHER'S SPEECH. The policy speech which Mr. Fisher delivered last week", shows how grave are the dangers which threaten the Commonwealth. If Labor has its fool ish way, the historian of the future will write of Australia as a nation killed with kindness. Whether this Labor member is an adventurer skilfully playing on the amiable weaknesses of human nature, that one a dreamer sharing the weak nesses to which he appeals, we need i not too curiously inquire. Whatever their motives, Mr. Fisher and his parliamentary followers are reviving the old Roman method of placating the many with doles. First the old age pension, next the invalid grant, then the baby bonus, and now allowances for widows with children dependent on them. Of these things every one is good, is absolutely necessary to the building up of a great nation under modern condition, but they shouldcome as the legitimate result of a great scheme of national insurance, not as do es from the S'ate.
