Artful Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Artful Dog. ♦ A young Army oflicor owned a smart spaniel. Among other tricks, ths officer trained the dog to an swer "Iettar call" and fetch his owner's letters to the mess-table. Pleased with the dog's intelligence, tho officer fell into tho habit of giv ing him a lump cl sugar from the breakfast-table. One morning, soon after tho bug ler had sounded "letter call," the spaniel came in with neither papers nor letters. This was unusual, for tho officer subscribed to a daily paper that invariably arrived in the morning's post, but he thought little of it at the time. About eleven o'clock, however, tho dog en tered his master's quarters and de posited a muddy paper upon the floor. The officer did not under stand the situation, but he gave the dog a lump of sugar. Later the dog appeared with a letter in" his mouth. Then the owner's suspicions were aroused. He gave the dog another lump of sugar and watched him. He soon found that the dog had buried the morning's post in tho rear of the o...
A STRANGE SHAMPOO. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
A STRANGE SHAMPOO. I was much interested to learn from this young woman with the beautiful glossy hair that she never J washes it with soap or artificial shampoo powders. Instead she makes her own shampoo by dissolv ing a teaspoonful of dtallax gra nules in a cup of hot water. "I make my chemist get the stallax for me," said she. "It comes only in Jib. sealed packages, enough to j make up twenty-five or thirty indi vidual shampoos, and it smells so good I could almost eat it." Cer tainly this little lady's hair., did look wonderful even if she has strange ideas of a shampoo. I am tempted to try the plan myself.
THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIR. It is easy to remove superfluous hair temporarily, but to remove it permanently is quita another mat ter. Not many women know that for this purpose such a simple sub stance as powdered pheminol may be used, applied directly to the hair. The recommended treatment is de signed not merely to instantly ro tnove the hair, but also to even tually kill the roots entirely. Al most any chemist could supply an ounce of pheminol, which quantity should be sufficient. r • A simple way to quickly neutralise disagree able body odours is to dust the arinpits occasionally with powdered (white) pergol.
Off the Target. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Off the Target. Tat and .Murpliy, since both had fallen ■ in love With the same wo man, became involved' in a deadly feud. There seemed to be only one way of settling the matter—a duel. Pistols were agreed upon at twenty ' paces. But when • the stout Mur phy saw his lean adversary facing him, he began immediately to raise objections. "Bedad," he said, "I'm' twice as big; a target as he is, so I ought to " stand twico as far away from him as he is from me." Tat's "second" treated this amaz ing proposition quite seriously, and for a long while stood thought ful and puzzled. Then : • "There's no need for that," lie said. "Be aisy, now. I'll soon put the matter right." Taking a piece of chalk from his pocket, ho drew two lines down the stout Murphy's coat, leaving a space between them. "Now," he remarked, turning to Fnt, "blaze away, yc spalpeen, and remember that any hits outside the chalk lines don't count !"
FALLING HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
FALLING HAIR. How often we hear the lament, " I have tried everything on the mar ket, and my hair comes out in handfuls." Not so surprising^-'either when you come to^ think 5 it. Cbyer^. Hair, tonics to be effective must be fresh, and there is "no earthly reason why, every woman should not make her ow"n lotion at home. The finest •vegetable tonic I know of is made by mixing a packet of boranium with £ pint of bay" rum and adding sufficient water to fill a half-pint bottle. This lotion rubbed briskly into the scalp sets the hair roots tingling "with now life, and will, if persevered with, give you back your "crowning glory.'.'

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. To make meat cooked in a gas oven juicy, place a jam jar half filled with cold water at the bot tom of the oven. The steam rising [ from the water makes the air in the oven moist and prevents the meat from getting hard. Before frying the breakfast bacon, cut off the rind and dip each rasher in flour ; then fry or grill quickly. This prevents the fat from running and gives the bacon a bet ter flavour. The problem of rust stains has been solved by holding the dam aged fabric in boiling ehubarb water. When washing and rinsing colour ed materials add a teaspoonful of Epsom salts to each gallon of water, and even the most delicate j shades will neither fade nor run. j Serge or merino dresses, which have ! been dyed black, can be .safely wash- j ed in this way without any risk of I the dye running. | After using a...

SMACK IN THE "I." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
SMACK IN THE " I." Pillingor is an enthusiastic golfer, and when his friend GrifTece met him coining away from the links he found Pillinger in a terrible frame of mind. " What's happened, old fellow," asked GrifTece, amiably. "Everything's the matter," growl ed Pillinger. "It's enough to make one give up golf and go in for fish ing. That ass Fitznoodle has been running all over the course, and actually crossed my tee just as I was about to make a lovely drive. What would you have done, if you had been in my place ?"■ GrifTece is a smart man, and his retort was characteristic of him. "Well," ha replied, with a smile, "seeing that he crossed your ' t,' I think I should have dotted his i'V'i r

THE LARGEST TORPEDO. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
THE LARGEST TORPEDO. I The largest size of torpedo at pre ! sent manufactured by the principal naval powers is .the 18in. White head. Its length is 16ft. l-}in. ; its weight about two tons, and its dia meter 18in. It is not of cigar shape, but is spindle-shaped, and it gets its name from the ray fish named tor pedo. Its effective range depends on the object at which it is discharged, be ing from 1,500 jards at a rapidly moving object, such as a swift crui ser or torpedo-boat destroyer, up to 6,000 yards at a breakwater or fleet in mooring. The latest form of tor pedo, guided by an instrument called a evroscope. travels at a rate of thirty knots.—' 'Ireland's Own." "Do you think Skinner can make a living out there ?" "Make a living ! Why,, he'd make a living on a rock in the middle of the ocean if there was another raaii on the rock."
Climates Changed. HOW SOME COUNTRIES HAVE ALTEHED THEIR WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Climates Changed. HOW SOME COUNTRIES HAVE ALTEHED THEIK WEATHER. One of the difficulties in the path of new countries is that very often . the climate is not just the sort needed for successful agriculture. But science is altering- all that. Climates aro being changed every - year, gradually but surely. The most common difficulty is usually too small a rainfall. Many countries have such severe droughts that if the tiny annual rainfall were . just an inch or two less tho soil ! would be impossible to cultivate^ and tho whole country would be come a desert. TREES AND RAIN.. _ ' ' •', . It is in cases like these" that the'.'; . climate-maker steps in. Where lack • of rain is the trouble he is : .usually ; - the Government's botannical oe'tpfc estry expert. His solution is r/to.v' 'Jf," plant trees. For, strange as it may seem, trees increase tho rainfall; . . They do so in two- ways. The. leaves of trees are always—owing to their chemical make-up cooler than ~ the surrounding atmospher...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. 4 rHE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. In a report of tha New York Dairymen's Association for 1891, we find the following statement in an address given by Dr. Robertson :— "In every case there was a gradual reduction in th« quality of cheese when there was a less quantity of butter-fat in milk. . . . However, this is true also that the increased yield of cheese is not in direct pro portion to the increased percentage of butter-fat ; that is, milk contain ing 3 per cent of butter-fat will yield a certain quantity of cheese, but if you take milk having one third more fat (4 per cent.) it will not yield one-third more chcese. At the same time, such milk is worth one-third more for cheesemaking, and thereby hangs a tale. You see, if it does not yield so much cheese, it yields a quality of cheese so much better that the market value of the cheese from 100 lb. of milk is a third greater than the market value of the cheese in the other case. "Every two-tent...
Yawning as an Exercise. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Yawning as an Exercise. > I ..Yawning1 is said to have an ex-1 ceedingly healthful function besides having a salutary effect in com plaints of the pharynx and the eustachian tubes. According to in vestigations yawning1 is the most natural form of respiratory exer cise, bringing into action fill tho form of rcspitatory muscles of the neck and chest. It is recommended that every per son should have a good yawn with the stretching of the limbs morning and evening for the purpose of ven tilating the lungs and tonifying tho respiratory muscles. An eminent authority asserts that! this form of gymnastics has a re- ' murkable effect in relieving throat and enr troubles, and says that pa tients suffering from disorders of the| throat have derived great benefit from it. He says he makes his pa tients yawn, by suggestion or imi tation, or by a series of deep breaths with the lips partly dosed. Tho yawning is repeated six or seven times, and should be followed by swallowing. I\v this proccss...

Pat had been to New Wynthshay to see Jessie, the girl who was for •'merly, parlour-maid at the Hall, and whose little son had been deprived of his frock by the bull ; but now Jes sie's heart was rejoiced by the sight of one even prettier than the frock; ,that had come to grief, and Pat, having admired the baby and pro nounced him a beauty, was now on her way home. She had not ventured througjii the fields, but had gone along the road through the village. It wbb black and grimy, and she was not sorry when she came to the lane that led to the field-path by which she could reach the path, forgetting that this black, grimy dust was an , evidence of the great wealth that lay within her father's land, and which would one day be hers..
