THE LADY SEXTON. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914

THE LADY SEXTON. At Crowland, near Spalding, Lincolnshire, a remarkable church controvorsy has suddenly developed as a consequence of the action of the Rev. S. C. Calver, the new rector of Crowland Abbey, in dis charging the lady sexton (Miss S. -T. Hill). The appointment has been in the Hill family for nearly 200 years. The sextons during that time have been her brother, her father, her grandfather, her grout-grandfather, and her groat-great grandfather. Of the latter a tablet in Crowland Abbey records the fact that he lost his sight by walking in a snow storm when forty years ol age, but, despite this, he could go into the churchyard and find easily every grave lie was desired to point out Mr. Calver was recently appointed rector, and a few weeks ago he gave the lady notice co leave the Abbey cottage, a house built many years ago specially for the sexton. At the Exeter vestry, as soon as the ordinary business had been transacted, the rector declared the meeting closed, and he decl...

CLEARING STUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914

ni PABiNft <^Tlin/iP.«i i As the years go by, and land be comes more and more valuable in this country, greater attention will have to be paid to making every part of a holding capable of yielding the maximum return, and in the case of old bush land this can only be done by clearing oil the stumps and fitting the land, where it is level enough, for the use of the plough. Blowing out stumps with ex plosives is, of course, no new thing, but the actual experience of a South Australian farmer may be a guide ns to the methods and approximate cost to those who have had no pre vious experience in the work. "I had," writes a correspondent of the Adelaide "Observer," "some 230 stumps and dead trees removed from the land. Many of them were up to 6ft. in diameter. The work was performed by Mr. E. Thomson of Parkside (better known as "Dyna mite Thomson'), at a total cost of £27, which works out at 2/4 per stump. The time occupied was 34 hours. A considerable expense and needless dela...

THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914

THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. . (Extract from a* Address by L. P. B&iley, Ohio.) The products of the Jersey cow milk, cream, butter and cheese— stand, in the markets of the world, for best quality. All these have won more premiums in the great com petitive shows than all other breeds combined. No name o£ any other breed is used to decorate the sides of milk wagonB that go through our streets nor the signs on butter and cheese stands. The milk from the average nerd of Jersey cows show 5 per cent, and better of butter-fat, making it the most economical the consumer can buy. They can take one pint of cream from one gallon 5 per cent, of milk and the remainder will be as rich as the whole milk of some other brer-da. In this way they get the very best cream and milk in the same bottle at the price of milk. No milkman or dealer can work up or even hold customers in any city, where the people are acquainted with and can get Jersey milk, with any other except that of the Guernsey. Jers...

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. IN THE HEART OF AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914

...-'PIONEERS. OF EMPIRE. IN THE HEART OF- AFKICA. There are few more pathetic part ings in human history than that in- which the white-haired Dr. Liv ingstone said "good-bye" at Un yahyerhbe one March clay in 18712, . to . Henry Morton Stanley, the lion hearted voung man, who, when the world had thought the brave . ex plorer dead, had fought his way to him, in the heart of Afri6u, .through a thousand perils and hard ships. In vain did Stanley urge the bro ken and travel-worn man to return with him to Europe where rest and laurels awaited him. Living stone's work, after thirty venrs in the dark places of Africa, was still incomplete ; he had set his heart on wresting from the Nile the secret of her source; and with unfalter ing courage he said farewell to the last white man lie was destined to see, and turned his feeble steps again towards his goal. A little more than a year later he was found dead, kneeling by the side of his his bed at Chita-mbo, leaving to others the completion o...

THE FEDERAL CAMPAIGN. LABOR LEGERDEMAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914

THE FEDERAL CAMPAIGN, LABOR LEGERDEMAIN. Most of us have seen the conjuror who puts an eggshell into a hat, cries " Heigh ! Ho ! Presto ! " makes a few passes with his wand, and placing the hat on a table draws out a hen and chickens. It is something of this sort which Labor assures Australia it is about to do, The electors have merely to provide the egg-shell, in the shape of their votes, and straightway Labor will give them short hours, a slficlc stroke, high wages, pensions, bounties, incomes for widows and orphans, swift steamers tun at normal rates, a gloiious navy— in brief, all for which they can sigh. As to cost, the voters have merely to put all thought of that aside till after the election. It is little wonder that, having con vinced themselves that they can do all this, Mr. Fisher and his colleagues are convincing the simpler of the folk who crowd to their meetings. But Labor can no more carry out its dazzling programme without additional taxation, than the professor of l...
