MAN-EATERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

MAN-EATERS. ' \ It ".might be thought 1Liat one of •;the results of the progress of civi lisation would have been to protect ; man from the ravages of the animal world, particularly with rsspect to the preservation of human life. Nothing of the kind has happened. Such statistics as are available point to the fact that every year lions, tigers, snakes, and crocodiles con^ tinue to do their deadly work. .. The time is not far distant when Man will have to deal definitely with the question of defending his life against his cruel rivals in the animal world, and when that time comes he will have to exhibit as great a Courage and us great a coolness as if he were fighting on the bloodiest battlefields. ,V.A return, drawn up by the In ..dian Government recently, publishes figures which can do nothing but stupefy. For instance, in 1911 the tigers in the Jndian peninsula killed 767 people, and the number of hu man' beings who met their death either from the attacks of ani •• Thais or from sn...

PRIME MINISTER'S TOUR. LABOR'S WEAK POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

PRlBiE MINISTER'S TOUR. LABOR'S WEAK POINTS. In Melbourne and at Bendigo, Mr. Cook spoke very strongly of Labor's Jack of business ins! inct and administra tive ability. At Bendigo he said, " If the electors had any gumption they would not let a set of muddlers like the ex-Labor Cabinet get control again. These gentlemen had not an ounce of business ability." The language is frank to bluntness. Yet, holding the opinions be does, Mr. Cook was in duty bound to speak in tones which would rouse the most careless of those who listened. In any case the commit ments which lie ahead of the Common wealth are enormous; if the reader strikes from the list every item of expenditure to which both parties are not pledged, the number of millions to be spent is hardly affected. If the necessary outlay is so great and imposes so heavy a burden of taxation, it is madness to place the administration of affairs in the hands of " muddlers." And the expenditure re ferred to is, unhappily, but a fraction ...

Port of Pompeii Unearthed [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

J Port of Pompeii Unearthed After lying: hidden since those aw- j ful days in the year 7'J A.D., when Pompeii was destroyed and burled by a great eruption of Vesuvius, the ancient harbour of the port has now been discovered—about 1,500 yards, inland from the sea shore of to-day. JIow it came to be found is an interesting story. The late cele brated Roman sculptor Lorenzo Coz/.a, who was also noted as a classical scholar, devoted his latter years in this search, impressed as he was by the great mercantile importance which ancient writers unanimously attributed to the Pom peian port. On his deathbed Cozza bequeath ed his studies to his son, urging him to- follow up the buried road leading seawards from the old ma rine gate of the city. Successive borings showed that the sand ex tended a.s far as the sea side of the present railway track. A little further inland the excava tors struck the pavement of an an cient marine street, revealing deep ruts of carriage wheels, such as are familia...

The hive and store of honey was found to have grown to extraordi- i nary proportions, the quantity of accumulated honey and comb having become so great ns to endanger by its weight the structure on which it rested. The bees, of which there were thousands, were killed' so as to enable the workmen to remove the store. The honey, which was in a perfect state of preservation, was removed in pailfuls, it must have,, amounted to several hundred weights. •

Ski Party Held at Bay by Wolves. A party of . ski ers from. Lcnibcrg had": narrow escapes' from being eaten by. .wolves while making- a tour in the Carpathian ~ Mountains between Gnlicia and Hungary. They lieard a howl during the afternoon," and found that a small pack of animals was following them along a narrow forest track down a mountain. Twilight came on be ) fore they got clear of the woods, and the wolves then becamo bolder and threatened to rush the last jnan of the party. v . It became impossible to proceed' to the place which it had been in tended to reach before nightfall, and the ski-ers took up a position where their rear waa protected by a rock, and passed the night behind their skis' stuck upright in the snow. Nearly all had revolvers, and several had electric pocket-lamps, which really saved their lives, as they enabled them to fire at any wolf which . ventured within range of the light.

The Miner's Rat. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

The Miner's Rat. —: * 1 During a recent inquiry into an accident on one of the Rand mines, an old miner giving evidence was asked : "You refused to work at this - place ; why ? Did you notice any thing wrong?" He replied: "No, sir, but I knew the ground must-he bad ; the rats were all leaving it."- - Except among miners, lew people on the Hand appreciate the old sai- . . lors' belief that "rats desert a sink ing ship" is just as strongly held by old miners. - • Spoken to a few days ago, one miner said : " All old miner's know that rats will never stnv where there is caving ground. Old miners will always tell you that, whether they come from England, Australia, or America. When an old miner notices that the rats are going, he alwnj's tries to find out what is wrong. 7< he can't, he generally has enough sense to get out himself." Hats are to be found in very large numbers in all old workings on the .Reef; their forbears probably w'ent below originally in boxes of candles or...

MESSAGES FROM THE DEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

MESSAGES .FllOM THE DEEP. 4 Mr. Olaf Nord, of Copenhagen, has made an invention by means of which the crew of a foundered sub marine will be able to' communicate their position. The invention con sists of a special buoy which the crew sends to the surface of the water. The buo3' is 'fastened to a cable and supplied with an electric . lamp, by means of which the crew below can make light signals, showing where the boat has foundered, and in a buoy is an apparatus through which a rescuing crew can speak to the men in the submarine. "Muriel," said the old gentleman, sharply, "'that 'young miin you had iiv the drawingroom last night is dull of comprehension. All I had to "do was cough when the other chaps re mained ' too late, and they'' would take the hint and depart. Did this one say anything when T coughed last ni'^ht ?"

NAVAL PRIZE-MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

NAVAL PRIZE-MONEY. Dating back to the earliest yeard of Britain's supremacy at sea, the custom of allowing naval prize money—which it is proposed shall now ba abolished—recalls some in teresting facts about tho days when pri e money was a great induce ment to recruiting for the Fleet: "Jack Tar" has shared in little prize-money since tho days of Nel son, except when he- has been en gaged in the capture of slavers on the east and west coasts of Africa. In the days when wo sailed the Spanish Main, however, considerable fortunes were secured in the way of loot by officers and men. The biggest haul of prize money on record,-" having regard to tho indi \idi:al shares, occurred in 1761, when the British frigates Actaeon and Favourite captured a Spanish - galleon. On dividing *>p the loot the shares worked out as follows : Captains, £65,000 ; lieutenants, £13,000 ; warrant officers, £4.,336; petty officers, £1,800 ; and seamen' and marines, £485. Another instance of tho capture of treas...

An Easily-made Wash-stand Substitute. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 7 August 1914

An Easily-made Wash stand Substitute. Our first illustration gives an adequate idea of a contrivance which may take tho place of n washstand, when it is not expedient for various reasons to fit a room with this article of furniture. As the sketch shows, it consists of a shelf with a rounded front fixed into a corner at a suitable height from the floor. Two pieces of board nailed above it form a backing, partly to add to the ap pearance of the fitment, partly to prevent splashing of the wall, Drap ery may be added as a frill. The shelf may be enamelled or be covered with oilcloth or other ma terial. As the fitment has to hold a heavy weight it must be strong. It is, therefore, necessary that its attachment to the walls should be rather more secure than nails dri ven into the plaster alone can bring about. Fortunately it is not diffi cult to gain this end. Tho supports of the she!/ may be produced first. Two are required;, one 1ft. 6in. long, 2in. wide, and -Jin. thick, and the other ...
