Two Good Stories. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

Two Good Stories. + Many of the stories told of Mr. Justice Maule,' but (says the Lon don "Globe") wo have to credit Mr. J. G.' Philips with quite the best, which is given in his newly-published bookj ''My Varied Life." A little girl of five or six years old was tendered as a witness be fore him, and counsel objected that it was impossible she could under stand the nature of an oath. "Come up, my dear, and sit by me," said Manic. "Now, my child, you are going to be asked som«? questions." "Yes, sir." "Now supposing you were a naughty little girl, and told stories, do you know where you would go to !" "No, sir." " No more do I," said Maule. " Swear the witness." So far ns we know, the following story of Disraeli which Mr. Philips tells is quite new*, and if it is not trua it ought to bo :— When he was made Chancellor of the Exchequer by Lord Derby dur-1 ing the latter's Government, a cer tain foolish Duke said to him : "Mr. Disraeli, I am glad to see that your talents are rewarded, b...

Pigeon Post. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

Pigeon Post. Although it is indisputable that our telephone and telegraph systems are indispensable to modern busi ness, nevertheless it is very sur prising how useful the pigeon still proves himself to be for short dis tance communication, as the fol lowing will illustrate : A certain old-established firm of dyers and bleachers, whose works are situated on the borders of Cheshire and Derbyshire, maintain a system of communication with their Muncllcator otlicc b,>- ino/xnc of ivi lL ten -messages carried by well-train ed pigeons. Whenever a message is required to be sent either one way or the other a pigeon is lib erated which carried the document to its accustomed destination. The moment of his arrival is indicated by the ringing of an electric bell, due to the bird having automati cally imprisoned himself by enter ing the cago provided at the top of the building.

SPORT FOR CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

SPORT FOR CONVICTS. Humanitarian motives have led the authorities in the States to in stitute remarkable regulations in some of their penitentiaries. The convicts . aro .allowed to smoke, play cards a.nd, various outdoor . games, mindulge.;- in musical evenings, and en joy other privileges in order to re lieve the tedium of their long sen tences. I And still there is a cry for more humane treatment for prisoners, the result of which has been the es tablishment of what is known as the . State "Honour Prison," at Great Meadow, in the United States, a report concerning which has just been published. The prison is really a thousand acre' farm, on which the men are employed, everything being done to make the prisoners contented and happy. That the authorities have been very successful in this direc tion may be gathered from the fact that, although no walls surround $ie" institution, only four men at tempted to escapc last year, and so indignant - were the other convicts at what they cons...

Ocean Fliers. STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

Ocean Fliers, f STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS ' Jn the "Times" Literary Supple ment "is an extremely intWestiiig'iUY ticlo reviewing Mr. Basil Lubbock's boolc on "The China Clippers." It is no accident (says the writer of the review) that the ocean clipper owed its very origin to tho compe tition for fortunes in tho illicit opium trade to China, in the thir ties and forties of last century ; a business which was nothing less than the armed and piratical smug gling of a noxious drug into a country whose . rulers forbade, but Uere too weak to resist, its intro duction. The coolie traffic, too, was a disreputable business. It is only when w'o -conic to . the gold rush to 'Frisco and the clean trade of the fifties and sixties that fascination at tho brilliant qualities and achievements of the clipper overcomes disgust . . at the iniquities associated with tho name. Then indeed the story becomes en thralling. At first the Americans were supreme, their designers, Hall, Webb, and the famous ...

L. S. D. OF AVIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

L. S. D. OF AVIATION. t —.— 4 The day when the well-to-do City man will use an ueropldne on his daily journej-3 between his home attd hia- office,"and £150 will purchase an efficient machine, is foreshadowed, by ' Mr. Gustav Hamel and Mr. Charles C. Turner in their inter esting book, "Flying—Some: Practi cal 'Experiences." Evon now flying is not prohibi tively expensive, apart' from' the original expense of £.400 to £1,500 for the aeroplane itself. The cost of flying, according to the authors, is made up of the "capital expen diture upon the machine, the cost or rental of a shed, repairs and renewal of parts, fuel, and the wages of one or mors mechanics. The price of a machine may be any thing from £400 to £1,500. Tak ing the engine most generally in use nt the time of writing—name ly, the Gnome—the aviator may buy a single-seater machine with a 50 horse-power motor for about £700, or a two-seater machine with an 80-horse-power motor for £1,000.

MILLIONS FIGHT MILLIONS! EUROPE ABLAZE. GREAT POWERS ENCAGED. TERRIBLE SLAUGHTER. GERMAN AND RUSSIAN DEFEATS. THE ALLIES' SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

MILLIONS FIGHT MILLIONS! EUROPE ABLAZE. GREAT POWERS ENCAGED. TERRIBLE SLAUGHTER. GERMAN AND RUSSIAN DEFEATS. THE ALLIES' SUCCESS. Two millions of German and Austrian soldiers are moving against two mil lions of allied troops on the French frontier, all equipped with the mosb modern means of destruction; and Russia is rtrlvaiiciug with two and a half millions on the Eastern frontiers o£ Germany and Austria. Fearful carnage must be the eventual result. Fortunately all news of engagements so far indicates the successes of the heroic Belgians, tho brave French, the fearless Servians and the courageous Russians. Although not unexpected Japan's ultimatum to Germany demanding the unconditional withdrawal of warships from China and Japan waters, and the evacuation of Kiao-chao, is a develop ment of far-reaching importance. Ger many has less than a week to decide what response she will make to the demand, and in the event of a refusal a declaration of war by Japan will follow. For some days...

VERY SMALL. On one of the American railways, in a sleeping-car, one night after everybody had turned in, and the lights were low, a loud voice called from one of the berths : "Porter, have you got a cork screw ?" The porter came hurrying up. "Ross," he said, in a scandalised tone, "we don^t allow no drinkiug in the berths ; it's against the rules. "Oh, it ain't that, porter," the voice answered, "I just want to dig out a pillow that's sort of worked into, my ear.'' Many a man has moft religion in him than he is ready to admit,,

LATER. The German plans have been hope lessly overthrown. The German Army Corps are hope lessly congested, and are being piled up against tho crippled front. The German attempt to pass Nancy failed, ivnd W1W uWxuloviwI, tKc»n fcVlOr French seem to have advanced all along the line. They have entered Belgian Luxemburg, crossed the border of Lorraine and Alsace, and according to latest mossages, have entered Co]mar. It would appear that the objective of the French is to sweep from north to south the province they lost in 1870. After the fight at Dinant the French cavalry organised a big battue and swept the front of the Allied Army clear of Uhlans (light cavalry). The Germans, it is reported, showed little disposition to fight, and many of them hid in stooks on the harvest field. The advance guards of the Belgians and Germans came into contact at various points in Belgium on Sunday, and in every case the German advance was checked. 100,000 of the finest troops thafe England has ever se...

Studied Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

Studied Politeness. Atlantic captains, of the older school were a hardened and humor ous lot of navigators, and many a story of their ecccntricities sur vives them. One in particular is of an old cap tain seeing the terror of the jun ior officer during that nervous or deal of treading: the bridge for the first time with him. This particu lar old salt, after a painful si lence, turned to the young man and said, "I like you ; in fact, my dear sir, I should like to have your photograph. You skip down and get it." j The nervous and delighted youth rushed off to his cabin and informed ' his brother officers r?f the complement the old man had just paid him. He was in luck's way, and ran gaily up onto the bridge, presented his photo graph, blushing modestly, to the old salt. " 'Umpli ! Got a pin wit-h you ?'•' "Ve-es, sir." "Ah, see ! I pin you on to the canvas here. I can look at you there and address you. You.can go, sir ; your photograph is jtfst as , valuable as you appear to be on the...

Therese sat looking at the empty - drawer in amazement; then Bhe shut and locked it, but her resolution was formed. She would not on any account in<juire about or admit that she had lost a cloak ; and as it was one she had seldom worn, it was not likely that it would get her into any trouble. But in spite of reasoning thus she was decidedly uneasy, and there was an anxious feverishness in her manner that did not escape her grandmother's eye. The following morning the inquest / on the body of Brian .Fitzpatrick was held in the dining room at the Red House. It waa a large room ■ ■ with a big bow-window facing over , a smooth, velvety lawn, and had been handsomely furnished, ready for the new mistress of the house.

Flying Train. SPEED OF THERE HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR. REMARKABLE INVENTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914

Flying Train. A SPEED OF TTtttEE HUNDRED MILfeS AN HOUR. REMARKABLE INVENTIONS A remarkable invention, which, if it does under working conditions what it achieves in the model stage has almost limitless possibilities, was displayed in London recently. ; It is a train or car which will run through the air at a speed es timated by the inventor at 200 or 300 miles an hour. One force raises the train into the air, another drives it through the air. At the demonstration in Lon don one first saw a cigar-shaped car supported on two rails. An elec tric switch was moved, and the car was raised into the air and kept there as though held by invisible hands. The onlj' connections with the rails were for the purpose of electrical contact. It was impossi ble even by exerting one's full force to press the train down to the rails again. A second switch sent the train through the air at great speed. The train was brought to rest in the air. The original switch was moved i back and the train dropped ...
