FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
FOOTBALL. Minyip visited Stawell on Wednes day, where the game proved rather one ^ sided, owing to the visitors' misfortune 1 in being unable to get together a strong J team. No less than six of their best players were absentees, viz., O'Rourke and Barrett (rovers), Pitman ar.d Peter ing (ruck), Ewins (forward), and B. Stamp (back). It was, indeed, with great difficulty that the officials of the club were able to get sufficient players to make up their team, and they left Minyip with 16 men and a few sup * porters. The game was played at Central Park, where there was a good attendance, the final result being— Stawell 11.19, Minyip 2.5. At Ararat there was a hard-fought game, the home team defeating Hor sham by 5 points, and the gate takings were £18. Harry Lauder bounced the ball at starting amidst great cheer ing. The final scores were—Ararat 6.8, Horsham 5.9. Stawell now leads for the Wimmera championship with 16 points, Ararat and Horsham being level with 12 points each. At a com...

Mr. Birrell's Ghost Story. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
Mr. BirreH's Ghost Storv. « Mr. Birrell told a ghost story at the Bristol Press Fund dinner, when responding to the toast "Literature, nnd Journalism." In referring to a recent speeph by Dr. Silvanus Thompson on the importanco of science, Mr. Birrell said :— "I don't know, my Lord Mayor, whether you ever have bad dreams, but I have been haunted ever since I was almost a boy by the constant repetition of one and the same dream. "It comes to me again and again. It is this. I dream Lam walking about somewhere in some plain or desert, and I suddenly encounter the agitated ghost of Sir Isaac New ton. lie approaches me, his eyes almost starting out of his head ; he tells me who he is, and how ig norant he is of all that has hap pened in the world of science since he left. " 'Now,' ho says, 'I want you to tell me in a . few words—for T have only a quarter of an hour left—all that has happened to the race ; the progress. How is it ? I know what it was when I left it. What is it now ?' "My h...
WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. GAS AND BREAD MADE FROM IT [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
WEALTH°WIQ» SAWDUST. -— T 3AS AND BREAD MADE FROM IT American and Canadian sawmills /' have discovered that the sawdust which they hara been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least £.8 per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extract ing Bas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ot tawa with light and heat at 5ri per 1,000 feet. This is thought to portend that around the great saw mills, which hare been emptying their dust into the Ottawa River, a variety of new industries subsist ing on it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully searched for, sawdust is impreg nated with a mixture of tarry sub stances and heated to the proper temperature ; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, . from which a screw-conveyer takes • it to a press, where it is com pressed into briquettes of tho re- , .. quired size. The press turns out about nineteen every minut...
PARADE AND SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
PARADE AND SPORTS. The welcome rain which fell on Tuesday had the effect of making the show ground very slippery for the military competitions on Wednesday, and Lieut. Hastie felt somewhat chary about allowing the Light-Horse men to risk the competitions, especially as the sky was overcast and there were indica tions of other showers falling. About 10 o'clock he apprised the secretary of the danger, and as the president was out of the town and could not be con sulted, Mr. Lee decided on the advice of some members to act promptly and postpone the sports. A wire was sent to Horsham just in time to stop the horses from entraining, and word was also sent to Rupanyup and Minyip ; but most of the troup had started from the latter place and at two o'clock about thirty mounted men paraded at the square clamoring for the fray. Meanwhile the president had arrived and the weather looked propitious, and several members of the society thought that only a meeting of the committee or the president...

THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914
THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. The Czar of Russia is the wealthi est man in all the world, far richer even than John D. Rockefeller or any, of the Rothschilds. His civil list , alone amounts to something like | £|2,500,000 a year, and more than a half of this is available for his own private use. In addition, the Czar owns land in European Russia equal in area to the whole of Ireland, and derives from it the colossal revenue of £5,000,000 per annum. And then he also owns land in Siberia which, even in' its present undeveloped state brings him in well over £1,000,000 a year. His annual income, including the interest on his savings, has been es timated at £7,500,000. Seeing, therefore, that tlic Czar puts aside every year a large sum of money for each of his four daughters the prince who contracts a marriage in that quarter is likely to do . ex tremely well for himself frb'ai1 k worldly point of view.
THE DAIRY THE BEST COWS FOR DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914
TH E DAIRY '-st* ? THE BEST COWS FOR DAIRYING. Under th« abovfl caption Mr. J. Long, a popular English writer on dairy subjects, in a recent issue . of the "Dairy" (London) has several articles on the different breeds of dairy cows. Of the Jersey breed he has written. the following :— "The Jersey cow produces the rich est milk of any known breed. Her milk is seldom sold by dairymen, owing to its higher cost, but it pro duces the finest butter that can be made, and not only finer cheese but a larger quantity per gallon than the milk of any other breed. "Farmers as a rule object to the Jersey owing to the fact that she is of little value when slaughtered, or barren, while her calves realise very small sums of money except in those cases where the breeder has a reputa tion. She is also regarded as too delicate for roughing, it in all parts of the country, but Jersejs which are bred for constitution and milk production, without regard to exhi bition points, I believe to be equal to main...
THE TENDERFOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914
i 1 THE TENDERFOOT. j A new chum who, in Garibaldi shirt and leggings, fitted with gigan tic spurs, had provided something of a spectacle in a Queensland mining district, dashed into a camp and in formed a party of prospectors that he had been bitten by a snake. They made an incision in the bitten part, and cauterised the wound by igniting on it a charge of gunpowder extract ed from a cartridge. Then they hur ried the 'unfortunate fellow to the hospital. The doctor applied remedies, but not the slightest symptom of poison ing manifested itself. There appeared to be three punctures in the skin, but the doctor began to doubt whe ther the man had been bitten by a snake at all. The patient was closely questioned, and then the fact was elicited that he had felt the bite when stooping down to take a drink at a creek. He had safr on one of his spurs ! There is a man who makes money whenever he wants it by a crafty ruse. He fills an old port wine bottle nearly up to the neck with water, the...
CHAPTER XVI. WORDS UTTERED IN A MOMENT OF PASSION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914
CHAPTER XVI. WORDS UTTERED IN A MOMENT OP PASSION. Pat stood for a moment looking from her father to the man who was so soon to be her husband, reading rage and hatred in both faces. "What is the matter, father ?" she askred, after a moment. Without answering her question, her father took her by the shoulders, sa7ing : •*Uo away, Patricia." Theri was something bo imperative Ln his tcma that she went without a word, proceeding at onoa to her own bed room. As the door «hut after her, Fitz patricb turned to ..Josh, saying : ''I'll tell her when she's my wife. She shall know" exactly what posi tion she and her mother occupy." "Do, and I'll- make you suffer for it," was the reply, in a threatening tone. "Don't forget I've got the whip hand," said his companion, with a sneer, and he went straight out of the house. Joshua Hetherington crossed the room, and locked the door. He want ed to be quite secure from interrup tion, while he thought matters over. Just then the only thing he was con s...
CHAPTER XV. TAKEN IN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914
CHAPTER XV. TAKEN IN. "What's this about Pat njarrying Fitzpatrick ?" said Lord Ossington., throwing himself into a chair in' the morning room at the Hall, two or three mornings after the latter's en gagement to Pat. That his lordship was put out it was easy to see, as he glanced from his sister to his niece. "It's quite true that Pat is engag ed to him," said Mrs. Hetherington, quietly. "My dear, I don't understand. I was told you refused to marry Lau rie because you loved young Carvlll, then you engage yourself to the doc tor. I'd like to know what it means, Pat ?" said her uncle, in his usual straightforward manner.' "It means that I've changed my mind. It's a woman's privilege," she said, trying to speak brightly. "You're not one of thfe changeable sort, and I'd like to know if your father has had anything , to do with .it. I've a sort of notion that -girls should marry in their' own class"/"and I wasn't keen on you marrying the son of your father's manager ; but he's a fine fel...
