"MOVIES" AS A LIFE-SAVER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

" MOVIES " AS A LIFE-SAVER. Motion pictures seem destined to have a repressing influence on reck lessness and crime. Professor Mun sterberg's invention—the cinemato graph nerve test for chauffeurs, pilots, and other men in charge of passenger, and traffic - conveyances— places the candidate in ti motor car in a dark room before a mov ing picture. A child in the picture darts before them ; a' pair-horse van dashes directly towards him ; a heap of rock suddenly appears. In every case the would-be chauffeur must act immediately ; his steadiness or unsteadiness of nerve is plainly ro vcaled. It should be remembered that such a test is as realistic as life itself ; so real ,w«s the dog in a regent picture experiment, that a dog in the house dashed at it and tore the screen to pieces.

Skating on Salt. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

Skating on Salt. Nature has been conquered once more. Men can skate, not on ico, but on salt. A salt skating rink, constructed by the patented process of T)r. Kdward Arnold, was re cently exhibited and operated in Berlin. All skaters will welcome the in vention of a method of producing, by purely chemical means and with out the employment of a costly refrigerating proccss, a saline cry | stalline mass which exhibits all the | characteristic properties of ice. The surfacc of the mass can scarcely be distinguished from a surface of na tural or artificial ice, and the re semblance is increased by the fact that (he shavings produced by the skates have nil '.he appearance of snow. The mass is entirely odour less and contains no ingredient in jurious to the health or the clot.h iiscu-"f»»twn jV uPi\\i skates, in every season and cli mate, except when the temperature is higher than 86deg.

VALUE OF THE SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

VALUE OF THE SCALE. -+ Farmers are extremely las in keep ing any kind of accounts. It might be thought that self-interest would dictate that they should know ex actly the profits they make each year. Yot to ascertain this it is es sential that there he a taking of stock once a year ; and we will guarantee that there is lmrdly onr farmer out of any hundred who does this. Dairy farmers are equally las, in not knowing what their cows do in the way of milk or butter produc tion, in not knowing the cost of feed, or how much each cow con sumes per day. It seems a very difficult matter to pet dairymen to appreciate the fact that dairying is a manufacturing business ; and that to make money at it, it is 6rst necessary to know exactly what each item costs, thus practicing economies where needed. Until the cost of production is known, it is impossible to curtail or lop off the unprofitable items: It is very evident that one of the first things that must be done is to weigh the milk of each co...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. 1 GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. In view of the increased use of this splendid fodder plant, the opin ion of Mr. Alexander, the manager of a large estate near lnverell, in New South Wales (where 15 silos are in use), on the danger of cattle graz ing on lucerne, is worth noting'.. He holds that the feeding off of lu cerne by stock is always attended with a certain amount of risk of loss by tympanitis or bloat. In fact, dur ing certain period? oi tht plant's growth its action on the cow is so active and virulent as to resemble prussic acid poisoning of cattle fed on immature sorghum. A remarkable thing about it is the fact that this extreme efiect is pro duced for perhaps only twe or three days in the plant's growth. which explains why cattle g6azing in one paddock may suffer badly from bloat while those in the next may he im mune, although the lucerne appears to be in exactly the same stage of growth in both. The manager be lieves that the importance of luc...

THE GLORIOUS GUMS OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

THE GLORIOUS GUMS OF AUSTRALIA. . There are people who see no beauty , in the gum tree, by which term they generally know all varieties of the eucalyptus; but to those who trouble to look twice there is an attraction about its shapely "trunk and limbs, and feathery fol iage which entitles it to considera tion on this account, aa well as for its many practical uses. The artistic possibilities of the eucalyp tus are well exemplified in Mr. W. Lister Lister's famous picture in the J Sydney Art Gallery. "The Golden Splendour of the Bush." The two most widely distributed, • and consequently best-know'n, genu ses of trees in Australia are the acacias, or "wattles," and the euca lypti, or "gum trees." Of the latter there is a tremendous number of ^species, and one of their greatest champions to-day is Mr. J. II. v. Maiden, Director of the Botanic Gardens and Government Bctanist for New South Wales. He is fre quently to be found urging their claims for use, either as an orna mental and shad...

Scarcely twenty minutes elapsed be fore the groom came to tell Mr. Hetherington that the inspector and a constable were exaining the body, and he then left the house and pro ceeded at a rapid pace to join them.

CHAPTER XVII. THE WORK OF A MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

CHAPTER XVII. - THE WORK OF A MOMENT. "I'll have my revenge." The speaker was Therese Morris. She was seated in" her bed room, looking out of the window into the garden. Her grandmother supposed she was in bed. She had complained of headache and gone to her room about nine o'clock, begging that she might not be disturbed, and now she was gazing into the gathering dark ness. It had been a dull, heavy day, and towards evening the clouds had gathered black and threatening, and now at a quarter to ten it was more like midnight. "A pretty bridal eve," the girl muttered. Then rising, she wrapped herself in a long dark cloak, and putting on a snug toque she weiit towards a drawer, out of which—she took a dagger of foreign workman ship, and hiding it under her cloak, she unlocked her door, and stepping on to the landing, she listened. :But there was no sign of either her grandmother or the servants, so re moving the key, she locked the door outside, then stole softly down the stairs, pausin...

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. SENATOR BARNES AT MURTOA There was a good attendance at the Mechanics' Hall to hear Senator Barnes' address on Federal politics The chair was occupied by Mr. T. Slaughter, president of the Dunmunkle Shire, who briefly introduced the speaker.. Senator Barnes, who was received with applause, said they were all very greatly concerned with the important events now taking place in Europe; but it would be well for those in this part of the British Empire to keep their heads cool and continue to live in peace and amity with neighbors and citizens with whom they had always been on the best of terms. (Applause.) For the first time in the history of the Com monwealjh there had been a double dissolution, and ex-members of both Federal Houses were now doing their best to get back. It would be good for them to know how that dissolution was brought about. Make no mistake about it, preference to unionists was the very thing that had brought it about, and it would be well for the...

Ladies' Column. SOME GOOD RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

Ladies' Column. SOME GOOD RECIPES. Tf, when making boiled starch, a piece of soap is left in, it will be found during the ironing process that not only will the iron slip along easily, but a beautiful glossy effect will be produced. The most difficult of all stains to take out are those made by cof fee. With care, however, the stnin can be removed from the most dolicate silk or woollen fabrics. Rub the mark gently with a little pure glycerino, then rinse it in lukewarm water, lay a cloth over the damp part on tho wrong side, and press with a cool iron until dry. Do not wot more of the ma terial than is absolutely necessary. To ascertain whether a room is damp or not, place a. weighed quantity of fresh lime in an open vessel in tho room and leave it there for twenty-four hours, care fully closing the windows and doors. Atjthe end of the twenty four hours re-weigh, the lime, and if the increase exceeds one per cent, of the original weight it is not safe to Iivo in the room. To wash wo...

WANDERING CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 14 August 1914

WANDERING CHURCH. During the floods in Ohio and the neighbouring States of the Middle West a wooden church, which had been washed from its foundations, was deposited on an island in the Ohio River. There was nothing to show where the church had come from or the de nomination of the people who had worshipped in it. It had a belfry with a bell weighing about half a ton, aim during Its curiUUli unpilotod voyage the structure had suffered lit tle damage. The inhabitants of the township in which it landed had had their own church destroyed by the waters. They gladly accepted the gift of the river, hastened to dig a foundation on a desirable site, and moved, the church to it. If the original congre gation learns of its whereabouts and attempts to claim the church some curious legal entanglements may arise. In the meantime, the church is do ing proper duty in housing a congre gation every Sunday, although per haps the congregation might be con sidered somewhat heretical by the former worsh...
