A Misfit. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
A Misfit. • Money was none too plentiful in tho Juggins' household, so Jimmy, tho son and heir, was generally dressed | in the clothes which once fitted his father. I Jimmy didn't exactly like, this ar rangement, more especially as. his father stood over six feet high, and he himself was barely four and a half, while mother, who had to ef fect the transformation of the gar ments, was but an indifferent tai lor. One day Jimmy was found by his father fumbling' with his waistcoat he had just taken over. ."that's the matter now ?" growled Juggins, senior. "•* "Why,, this 'ere pocket ain't got any bottom to it," said Jimmy. "Away -you silly," said his father. "That's not a pocket ; that's a buttonhole !" A contractor one day missed a wheelbarrow, and ordered his fore man to make a search for it. The foreman called up all his men and lined them up in. front of the of fice, and began to search their poc kets, the contractor looking on awe stricken. The pockets were emptied one after anothe...
THE FARM. ARE PHOSPHATE AND POTASH WASHED OUT OF THE SOIL? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
THE FARM. ,.i ARB PH08PHATE AND POTASH WASHED OUT OF THE SOIL?' It is said that the best time to ap ply basic slag and kainit is in the autumn or early winter, as by thi3 early application the phosphoric acid in the slag becomes available for the plants in the spring, when they start growing;, and the potash in the kain it improves in condition, having part ed during the winter months with, the proportion of chlorides which are not desirable for the crop. But the question is often as'ied whether, with such early application, there is not a great risk of loss of the valuable constituents from bein? washed out during the heavy winter rains, especially in meadows and pastures which are subjcct to being flooded, or," if not washed away, washed too deeply into the soil. It might naturally be assumed that this would be the case, but experi ence shows that there is not much ground for such apprehension, especi ally if the heavy rain does not come directly after the application of tha manur...
SCOTS IN MEXICO. HOW THEY FARED DURING THE FIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
SCOTS IN MEXICO. HOW THEY FARE!) DURING THE FIGHTING}. , In an interesting letter to a rela tive living in Edinburgh, a lady in Lerdo, Mexico, gives the revolution experiences of her family, consisting of her father, a medical doctor in practice there, her grandmother, an Edinburgh, lady, daughter of J)r. Campbell, of Picardy Place, and her sister. The family had resided in Lerdo for some years. On returning from business one day, says the lady, bullets occa . sionally crashed through the win dows of the cars, but none of us were injured, and we all arrived safe at Lerdo. The shots were now so near that the ticket office officials ' begged me to stay there and not attempt to go home, a distance of only five squares. 1 preferred rather to be at home at such a time, and started twice to do so, but each time the bullets came snipping off the leaves and twigs above my head, and made me turn back. Curiouslv "enough, several men, thinking that I was not afraid, followed me, and when I tur...
THE DAIRY PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
THE DAIRY + PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. I Cleanliness has a market value. This i8 particularly true where j cleanliness contributes to the quality | of the food product. It has always i been recognised that cleanliness should have a most important place in the production of mil'-:, but strange to say, until recently, the number of quarts of milk and its. The results of clean methods are the banishment of dirt and the banish ment of bacteria from milk. As soon as the certified milli movement be gan, prices immediately jumped for certified milk from 4d. to 6d., then to 7ivl. and now to lOd. per quart, j The chief reason for this was the standard for bacteria which was set i at 10,000 c.c. by the Certified .Milk j Commission. In certified milk we have only one standard ior cieanu ness and one price. There are no de grees of excellence provided, and no prices corresponding to the same. When one contemplates the other 99 per cent, of the milk supply which is Uncertified, it is obvious that its...
CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. Joshua Hetherinjton sat, to all appearances, composed and quiet. In reality he was simply, wild with ap prehension. "Tho strongest piece of evidence against your nephew is that fact that, a dagger, such as would have inflict ed the wound that killed the doctor, was in his possession at the time of the murder. It seems the housemaid at Mount House is engaged to the village constable, and when they were discussing the murd.er, she told him that Mr. Jack had a dagger in his room, and she, at. her lover's re quest, handed it to him. Then of course, there were the threatening words he used. But personally I do not believe him guilty," he said. "You are rignt ; lie is innocent. Dr. Fitapatrick may have bad enemies, j bitter enemies, who bad even greater | reason to wish him out of the way I than Jack had. You knew him in- I timately ; do vou know nf nnv mn>h "No, but it is possible he had an enemy, as you suggest. He had been many years in India, and the ...
CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. "Call Margaret Wedmorc." As the name fell on his ears Josh Hetlverington started and looked round in time to see her enter, and he was struck afresh by, her loveli ness and grace, which was not mar red by the sad expression her face wore. As he looked he scarcely mar velled that the dead man had loved her, rather than his richly-dowered daughter. "Miss Wedmore, is it true that the dead man asked you to be his wife on the afternoon previous to his death, when he was on the eve of marriage with another lady ?" "It is quite true, and I thought he must have been out of his mind, or he would never have spoken such words. Indeed, when I heard that he had died a violent death, I came to the conclusion that he had commit ted suicide while out of his mind," she said, speaking in a clear, dis tinct tone. The coroner shook his head. "A man cannot stab himself in the I back. And now, Miss Wedmore. I want you to tell us about this quar rel between your cousin and the d...

FEDERAL ISSUES. AUSTRALIA'S NEED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
FEDERAL ISSUES. AUSTRALIA'S NEED. Australia's supreme need to-day is a strong administration. Politicians have prated wearisomely enough about great crises, and have done so just as often as their seats have been in danger. Now, however, everyone realises that the integrity of the Empire, the very life of the Commonwealth are at stake. So deeply has the consciousness of this sunk into the minds of the many, that there is a very real danger of the battle of the polls being ignored by thousands of ihe electors. The men and women who are likely to absent themselves from the poll are thinking of what Germany is attempting in Europe, rather than of what might happen here. They are satisfied with the course Mr. Cook and his colleagues have taken, they appreciate the promptitude with which an Australian force was promised, the spirit with which it is being equipped. They quietly take it for granted, that the "men who are in com mand to day will remain in command after the 5th of September....
