FAREWELL SOCIAL TO MR. WYNNE. NICE PESENTATION. A large number of friends of Mr. Arthur Wynne assembled at the Presby terian Church school-room on Saturday evening to bid farewell to that gentle man who has severed his connection with the firm of Wynne and Scott, coachbuilders, and is starting business at Horsham on his own account. The room was artistically decorated for the occasion by the ladies, and proceedings were opened with prayer and the sing- | ing of the Old Hundredth Hymn. A programme of musical numbers was thoroughly enjoyed, including a quar tette, " Annie Laurie," by Miss M'Donald, Miss Hasiie, Mr. Westcott, and Mr. Smith; songs by Messrs. J.

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. MR. S. SAMPSON AT MURTOA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
FEDERAL ELECTIONS. MR. S. SAMPSON AT MURTOA* Mr. S. Sampson, who en joys the destination of being the only Liberal member of a Victorian con stituency likely to have a walkover at the general election, paid a visit to Murtoa on Monday and addressed the electors at the Mechanics' Hall. There was a good attendance, the chair being occupied by Mr. Thos. Slaughter, shire president. Mr. Sampson, who had a good reception, u.iid that legislation now either regulated or controlled every avenue of the economic,, industrial and commercial life of Australia, and a study of political questions and an active interest in the present campaign wero of the greatest importance. The finmcial outlook was a matter for the deepest con cern. Ti'6 defence expenditure must in crease next year by £1,000,000. Without allowing for any other increase, the expen diture for the next year must reach at least £'28,000,000.

FOOTBALL. MURTOA v. MINYIP. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
FOOTBALL. MURTOA v. M IN YIP. Although neither of these clubs had any chance of winning the Niewand trophy, the game on Wednesday was anxiously contes'e-J, as these teams never fail to furnish an exciting contest when they meet. Several good phyers were absentees from the Minyip team, including the two Hewnls, Rossiter and Brieriy, and the local team had to make up their tail end. The weather con-, ditions were delightful, with no wind, and there was a good attendance at the show-grounds. The game was umpired by Bernie Jones, of Monoa, who did i very well on the whole, acting strictly impartially. He had to give 42 free kicks against Murtoa men, principally for holding, and or.ly 16 against Min yip, which indicates that the latter played more up to the rules. Towards the end, however, the local umpire was losing his authority over the players, who were giving more advice than obedience. At the bounce Minyip rushed the ball, and soon scored first blood with a single. Murtoa rallied a...

Ladies' Column. SELECTIONS FROM THE WORLD'S SMARTEST BEAUTY ARTICLES SIMPLE RECIPES MOST EFFECTIVE. HOW TO DISCARD AN UNSIGHTLY COMPLEXION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Ladies' Column. ? SELECTIONS FROM THE WORLD'S SMARTEST BEAUTY ARTICLES SIMPLE RECIPES MOST EF FECTIVE. HOW TO DISCARD AN UNSIGHT LY COMPLEXION. How many women exclaim as they behold their ugly cemplexion in the mirror, "If I could only tear off this old skin !" and, do you know, it is now possible to do that very thing ? Not to actually remove the entire skin all of a sudden ; . that ■ would be too heroic a method, and painful, too, • I imagine. The ! worn-out cuticle comes off in such tin5* particles, and so gradually— requiring about ten days to com plete the transformation—it doesn't hurt a bit. Day by day the beauti ful complexion underneath comes forth. Marvellous ! No matter how muddy, rough, blotchy, or aged your complexion, you can sure ly discard it by this simple pro cess. Just get some ordinary morcolised wax at your chemist's, apply nightly like cold cream, washing it off in the mornings.
Shaving Made Easy. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Shaving Made Easy. ' i 1 No genius lias yet arisen and in vented a machine to undress you and tuck you up in bed, but we are getting 011 ! The unhappy man who daily strug gles with a hard beard in the chillj' hour before breakfast may take cheer from the thought that an electric razor has been invented by some benefactor. This machine is a safety razor, connected to a motor by means of a flexible shaft. The blades are ac tuated in such a way as to cut the beard by impact, or blows. This means that the razor does, not need to be so sharp as in hand-shaving. Another advantage is that soap is not necessary, merely wetting the skin being quite . sufficient. A fur ther boon is that it is very much quicker. The after-effects of this method are said to resemble those following a mild face massage. A plug is pro vided for att aching the razor to any ordinary lamp-socket. It sometimes takes a year for the bite of a rat to heal up. 1938.

Style With the Gloves. POINTS AND TRICKS OF RING CHAMPIONS COMPARED BY OUR EXPERT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Style With the Gloves. POINTS AND TRICKS OF RING CHAMPIONS COMPARED BY OUR EXPERT. Style in boxing is the finishing touch given by a particular man to a general principle? in his own way. To give an instance, the principlo of the straight lead-off at the head is the same the world over. But no two very good boxers do it in quite the samo way. To take this simple blow—the straight, left at the head—there is very little room for much variety. Yet champions have made this best of all blows effective in quite dif ferent ways. Jim Driscoll, to take a present day example, has the quickest left. I have ever seen.' He does not just pop it into his opponent's face once and back aw'nv, but as a rule, with lightning swiftness, he hits again and again—sometimes four times in succession. How different is the Frenchman, Georges Carpentier ! With him there is jfiSt ns much graco of movement, the same eogerness to follow up an aih^intage, but the style is totally tyCfcrent. Instead oi carrying his ...
In Old Japan. THE CHARM OF KYOTO. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
In Old Japan. - —f — THE CHARM OF KYOTO. No city in Japan has more charm than Kyoto, none is per haps so thoroughly worth while from the point of view of the tra veller. The Japanese have a say ing that you must never use the word magnificent till you have seen Nikko. Splendour indeed seems to mock at the hard reality of death on the terraced hillsijie_ planted with giant cryptomenas where the Shoguns sleep in such pomp. But Nikko, despite its per fect natural surroundings, is withal a . tomb, j Kyoto old: in story, a ■placVSof-jiving v'nieh. -•^ This ancient capital of the Mikado/3 has, despite modern innovations, marntained that essentially Japa nese character which is half obli terated in Tokio. True, the nar row streets are a network over head of telephone and telegraph wires and electric cables. Poles almost bending under the weight of the cables they carry are curious and unattractive objects which have to be accepted in every little Ja panese town and village to-day. One of t...
A Home-made Vise. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
A Home-made Vise. 1 While making a box I had sonic dovetailing to do, and as there was no vise on the bench I rigged up a. substitute. I sccurcd a board Jin.thick, : 3in. ; wide and 20in. long and bored a £-in. hole through it, lin. from each end. The board was then attached to the bench with two screws passing through washers and the two holes in the board into the bench top. The screws should be of a length suit able to take in the piece to be worked.
IN BORROWED PLUMES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
IN BORROWED PLUMES. The Amir of Afghanistan, smitten with Westernizing notions, insists upon the personages of his Court appearing in European clothes. There are many amusing features about this craze for European dress. Use is made of cast-off uniforms that may be seen in Kabul is as amazing as it is amusing. The war like Afghan may be ween strutting about even in the stations cm the Indian border as proud as a pea cock in; a uniform which bears on it the name of a well-known Lon don music-hall, while there are others ;in the uniforms of English and Continental railway-guards. Frequently it is only a' coat thut is worn, and a pair of brown bare legs complete the outfit. "You ask my hand in marriage. Aren't you rather ambitious ?" "Yes, but I always did strive for big things." From that moment his case was hopeless.
DIPPING THE FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
DIPPING THE FLAG. The salutation given when a vessel ' lowers or "dips" its flag is one of the oldest and most honourable of all forms of marine greeting. > This form of salute has always been demanded by English-speaking i seamen, and its exaction has warmed up the hearts and used up the povr- ; der of generations of naval comman- I ders. | In the old days, for a foreign ship, whether merchant or naval, to enter an English port without veiling top- . sails or dipping its national flag ' was to run the risk of war, although the profoundest peace existed. i Without warning or argument, the shore defences of a man-of-war would send a round shot across the bows or between the masts of the foreign er, and if the offending flag did not instantly come down the insolent in truder was brought to her senses by being raked through and through. Such was the reception accorded by Sir John Hawkins in the sixteenth century to the Spanish admiral who, in time of peaceN sailed into Ports mouth S...
CHAPTER XI. STILL THE DEVIL'S OWN DARLING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
CHAPTER XI. STILL THE DEVIL'S OWN DARLING.' The sun was shining brightly the next morning when Mr. Hetherington passed out of the park gates on his way to see Dr. Fitzpatrick. This time he did not choose the little door in the wall, feeling it was more prudent to give it a wide berth. Before he had gone many yards he heard the sound of wheels, and, look ing round, he saw the doctor's dog ! cart, with the doctor in it, coming j towards him. Mr. Hetherington paused, and when i the dogcart came alongside of him, [ the doctor pulled up. I "I was coming to see yoU about a j temporary hospital for the fever cases," said Mr. Hetherington. "All right. I'll get out and walk with you as far as my house." the doctor said, flinging the reins to his groom, aftd telling him to drive on ; then, as he joined the other man; he said : "Have you heard that Mr. Carvill's sister-in-law, Mrs. Wedmore, has ! been assaulted and seriously injured, I Mr. Hetherington ?" ! "Seriously injured !" echoed Josh, '...

Useful Winter Wrap. » 'Our sketch shows a useful, little garment that can very ensily bo made, and that may. be slipped ou under a coat prior to going, out, and that not only will protect the shoulders, cheat, and back from tho > cold, but will also keep the neck and shoulders warm without using a scarf of any kind.

Bird Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Bird Hospital. There is in • New York the tiniest hospital .in the world. All sorts of feathered patients lie in the wicker baskets, filled with soft white cot ton and supported on tall, wicker stands, that • forin ■ tfie,- •" beds.-.. ► owner and- director"hospital-** a, lady, knows how-:t6";take ciare of 'birds, and ; she- acts as- surgeon, nurse, and druggist all in one.

Every one of the birds loves "Doc tor" Pope—the lady's name is Vir ginia Fope—and when she passes on her morning rounds rows of little feathered heads bob up over the sides of the baskets, and dozens of bird voices—some of them very faint and we...
IS POWDER NECESSARY? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
IS POWDER NECESSARY ? I say emphatically. No ! There is a simple lotion which can be easily and cheaply made at home, and it is at the same time both effective and beneficial to the complexion. Cleminite is a splendid substitute for face powder, which is nt the bot tom of my complexion troubles. Get about an ounce from the chem ist's and dissolve in four table spoonfuls of water. The result is a fine clear liquid, which instantly gives the face, neck, or arms that peach-like bloom of perfect health. There is nothing to equal it for greasy skins, and the result lasts all day long under the most trying conditions. Try it for the next dance.
