Wonderful Chinese Hens. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

Wonderful Chinese Hens. » It may be of interest to breeders Mid egg farmers, reports Mr. A. TF. Williamson, a Consul in China, to inow that eggs weighing over four bunces ore produced *by on ordi nary hen of no particular breed, fed on corn and kept ill a confined enclosure. This, however, is not a daily performance. The fowl re ferred to is a black hen, of no particular breed, but resembling a Langshan. She lays an egg weigh ing four ounces or over at least every third day for about a week or ten days during which no eggs are laid. The smaller eggs average six to the pound. The shell is brown, with a circle of dark spots near one end. Other hens bought in tho market average six eggs to the pound, with whito or brown eggs, thero being no standard, of course. What theso hens could do if fed and cared for scientifically cannot be told, but they should be wonders. It is common to buy from Chi nese eggs that will average six to tho pound, though smaller ones are also plentiful, but tho ...

All important disco very is an nounced in the''shape of a burial place of the Stone Age which has just been found by Professor Dall Osso, of Ancona, in the Yalle Vi brata, in the Abruzzi.

The bodies are not buried, but arc all laid in small cabins containing from two to eight each, and are ranged on both sides of these little huts on low platforms sloping to wards the centre. With one excep tion the bodies all rest on one side, .with the knees dr'awri up, and -it is assumed that the dead were placed in-this position to give them the attitude of prayer in their death •chamber, for it has been . establish ed that the custom of praying on one's, knees was already in exist ence in the Stone Age in Egypt.

Electric Clothes. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

Electric Clothes. | -4 We may soon hope to sec on tho market apparel which includes an electric apparatus' for -warming1 tho body of the person who wears it. Some-lime ago Dr. Carmichel, pro fessor of physics at the University of Toulduse, in Franco, hit upon the. idea of inventing- electric clothes in an effort to devise a cure for rheumatism. The garments which j he designed, howwer, while theo retically all right, were in many ways entirely impracticable to wear. For one thing, tho wiring made them ' too heavy and altogether too stilt to allow any freedom of move . ment, and quickly wore through j the cloth. Furthermore, after the j fabric had been wet a few times, ■ the heating apparatus rusted and was ruined. Ultimately, however, another French scientist, Professor ITerr ■gott, of Belfcirt, took up the ex periments, and it is said has at. last succeeded in producing suits made from electricallv-wired fabric which meets all practical tests. Tn the suits made by Professor Herrgot...

Gained Most by War. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

Gained Most by War. 1 Comparing her position among nations then ami now, Russia has gained most by w'ar during the last . five hundred years. At that time j she was an insignificant stato in the midst of warring tribes and threatened with extinction by more powerful and better organised neigh bours. Moscow was-the centre from which the Slavonic Empire lias been built up. Early in the ^5th century Vassali conquered Rostov, and Mu rom laid claim to Novgorod. Ivan the-Great, whoso long reign extend ed into tho next century, subdued tho city and its colonies and freed his country from tho suzerainty of the Tartar. The succeeding reign witnessed a protracted war with Lithuania, the annexation of three great provinces, and the subversion of the last of the ancient Slavonic Republics. Ivan the Terrible opened tho way to Si beria and tho North, but the con vulsions that followed his death threatened to destroy the new-born Russian nntion. Then came Peter tho Great. He gave Russia a footing ...

THE FEDERAL FIGHT. PLAYING WITH REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

THE FEDERAL FIGHT. PLAYING WITH REVENUE. The cannon's deadly roar has an nounced the opening of a great war in Europe,- and distant as the thunder is it should convince the Australian people and their .political leaders that the utmost caution is essential in all matters of finance. Great schemes, glorious or inglorious, propounded by rival leaders and involving the expenditure of vast sums, must stand over till peace is assured. To ihose unscrupulous v lk who had hoped that the tariff would be thrown into the melting pot and recast in the old haphazard fashion, the greediest and most imporiunate getting the highest duties from parliamentarians woefully ignorant of detail, this is cruel disappointment. The cup seemed very near their lips. It has fallen to the ground. With a cynical indifference to their own fiscal beliefs, Labor members' agreed that the manufacturer should have just what mess of pottage he demanded in return for his vole. The proposal that the Inter-state Commission...

WHY'A MAN'S BRAIN IS &ETTER THAN AN ~ ANIMAL'S. (By WM. LEE HOWARD, M.D.) Within tho surface ; of- the brain four,, different stations for mental activity are well known. They all look; alika sunder the .-microscopy, but. differ - essentially frortv ..other parts of the upper brain in lanatomatical structure. It is tho extraordinary development of these stations, or centres, which distinguishes the hu man brain from that of animals. ' They are called intellectual cen tres, or "centres of association,'.'..be cause. they concentrate the activi ties of the organs of sense with higher units. The intellectual centres are con nected by numerous systems of very fine fibres.

GERMAN-AUSTRALIAN LOYALTY. PATRIOTIC MEETING AT MURTOA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

GERMAN-AUSTRALIAN LOYALTY. PATRIOTIC MEETING AT MURTOA. • No one ever had the slightest suspicion of the loyalty of the German residents, who form such a large portion of the population in and around Murtoa, and who are all either naturalised British subjects or Australian born ; but with the blast of war in their ears, our German friends hastened to assemble at the Mechanics' Institute by private arrangement on Wednesday afternoon | to enthusiastically proclaim their un swerving loyalty and attachment to the British crown. Mr. T. Slaughter, presi dent of the Shire Council, was invited lo take the chair, and there must have been nrnrly 400 Teutons, male and female present. Three large ffags bear ing proud Union Jacks, under which there never trod a slave, were con spicuously unfurled on the stage, and the proceedings were dignified, solemn I and sincere. The chairman explained that the meeting had been privately arranged by our German friends for the purpose of expressing their loya...

Speeds for Turning' Unusual Materials. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

Speeds for Turning' Un usual Materials. ; ^ ; 1 The "Practical Engineer" gives the following information on turning unusual materials : Slato, on ac count of its peculiarly stratified format ion, is rather difficult to turn, but if handled carefully, can lie machined in an ordinary lathe. The cutting speed .should be about the same as for cast iron. A sheet of fibre or pressed paper should be interposed between the chuck or steadyrest jaws and the slate, to protect the latter. State rolls must not be centred and run on the tail-stock. A satisfactory method of supporting a slate roll having journals at the ends is to bore a piece of lignum vitae to receive the turned end of the roll, and cen tre it for the tail-stock spindle. Rubber can .be turned at a peri pheral speed of 200 feet per mi nute, although it is much easier to grind it ■ with an abrasive wheel that is porous and soft. For cut ting a rubber roll in two, the or dinary parting tool should not be used, but a tool shaped lik...

He had loat Meg through his own carelessness and undue haste to seize the riches that dazzled him, and he swore at himself. But was it too late ? He could still make terms with Hetherington. It would be useless to ask him to ac knowledge his marriage with Meg's mother, but he could compel him to give him half the diamonds and the dowry that Pat was to have had.

The Indian Fakir and his Robes. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

The Indian Fakir and his Robes. ♦ 1 « The marvellous stories related o! East Indian jugglery are without foundation in.fact, being in reality the tale3 of travellers exaggerated in the course of constant repetition. The fakir's tricks are, as a rule, of the most primitive order, and often clumsily performed. The cob ra snake trick has always been most puzzling to travellers ; but its performance and solution • are easily explained. A party of jugglers, naked with the exception of clouts about their loins, appear .in tho open market place. After a series of incanta tory sounds, a cobra is produced and tortured into seeming frenzy, until the bystanders, with bated breath, watch tho proceedings, fear ful lest so>me ono of tho dancing, howling jugglers may meet his death from the fangs of the maddened rep tile. Suddenly, before the gaze of every one, the cobra disappears as though "vanished into thin air," and the jugglers appear as disconcerted at the disappearance as the specta tor...
