A Dainty Collarette. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
A Dainty Collarette. p Here is a design of a particularly pretty collarctte that may he car ried out with almost any small remnants of ribbon, lace, and silk, and that specially recommends itself for the ease with which .it can bei made. | Jn the large sketch the collarette may bo seen laid out perfectly flat, in order to show the way in which it is arranged, and in the small sketch it is shown in position upon ! a figure. It consists of a band of velvet ribbon, trimmed on the j outer edge with a broad frill of lace, and inside there is a small vest bf spotted silk, fastening with three tiny gold buttons, and, by the way, this little rest should be finished oft at the neck with a small ribbon bow tie. The col lours be selcctcd to harmonise with the costume with which the col larette is to be worn, and the sketch i'o clearly shows its nature that further description is unneces sary.
Hoaxing the Senators. THE STORY OF A PRACTICAL JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
Hoaxing the Senators. ~ i . THE StfORY OF A PRACTICAL JOKE. An amusing practical joke has just j been played upon French Ministers of Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of au opportunity to bring bis name before the notice of hfs con stituents, and no method is sim pler than that of subscribing for the erection of a statuo to some dead and gone French celebrity who is in danger of bning forgot ten. Knowing this, says the ' Times ' correspondent, a clever newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegesippe Simon. Then ho sent a printed circular to over a hundred Deputies, inviting them to become honorary members of tho committee which was being organ ised to celebrate tho centenary of the illustrious Hegesippe. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant he ad ded a quotation from his works, "When the sun arises, the darkness vanishes away." The Deputies, who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the great man or to...

"The House of Gold." NERO'S MARVELLOUS PALACE IN ROME. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 21 August 1914
" The House of Gold." : r ■ NERO'S MAKVF.LLOUS rALA.CE v TNT TinAfTO. An interesting- description of the wonderful "House of Gold " which Nero had built for him between the Palatine and Esquiline hills in Rome was given by M. Precliat in a recent lecture in Paris. This mighty palace, covered with plates of gold enriched with ivory and adorned with a multitude of; beautiful statues, covered an area equivalent to the Champs Elysees | and the Place de 3a Concorde. The j Emperor conceived the idea after I reading Ovid's description of the ralac.e of the Sun in the "Meta morphosis. And it was in the guise of the Sun God that Is'ero had a statue of himself made near ly 99ft. high. This colossus stood in a great four-horsed chariot, j and was erected in front of the "House of Gold." Within the palace walls was a lake, which ancient authors compare to a sea, and on its waters were given the sumptuous nautical fes-j tivities of which one reads. .Like j a fairy palace the "House of Gold" j wa...

MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRI CITY. | An industrial electrician of Rotter dam is reported to have discovered a method of giving age to cheese by ■ means of electricity. After a long series of experiments, he found that he could take an absolutely fresh cheese and give it all the consis tency, taste, and appearance of a fine cheese that had been stored away and carefully aged for two years. ! He takes a fresh cheese and sub jects it to an alternating current. At the end of twenty-four hours of con stant alternating electrical currents , through this cheese it possess?® all ■ the properties of a fine two-year-old cheese, i This has naturally aroused great interest in Holland, where cheese making is one of the big industries. It is said the electrician claims he can do many other things with cheese by means of electricity., including an j apparatus that will enable the minn ' facturer to so gratuate and direct electrical action of this nature as to j give cheese any taste desired, and any...
THE DAIRY DEHORNING THE DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
THE DAIRY i DEHORNING THE DAIRY CATTLE. Ownera of farm cattle have a mis taken idea of beauty when they think a cow or a bull is more attractive with the horns on. For safety's sake, if for no other reason, the cattle should be dehorned, both to keop them from injuring each other and. ■from doing bodily, harm to persons on the farm. Horns have no possible use to any domestic animal and should be removed at an early age. When cattle roamed wild, horns: were Nature's provision for defence and guard against enemies. In the struggle for existence in the early days, when cattle in a wild state of nature had to hold their own with other beasts of the fields, horns were a valuable asset. Now when thay are bred for domestic purposes and have nothing from which to defend them selves, the horns have absolutely no use, and a cow should be considered more valuable without them. Animals on which the horns are left, possess more or less of thpir former fighting instinct. They often do much injury...
DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. I In locating a cowshed care should be taken to have a gentle slope from the shed in at least one direction af fording good natural drainage to both shed and yard. If the shed is al ready built and poorly located, grad ing and draining will do much to remedy the evil. In most cases it would take but a small amount of labour with a scraper when the ground is in suitable condition to handle to give the surface of the yard a slope from the shed sufficient to carry off the surplus water. Even if dirt has to be hauled in from out j side the yard to accomplish this, it will not be expensive. Tile drainage ' alone will not be sufficient as the tramping of the cattle soon covers the surface, preventing the water from passing down the tile. Thirty years ago the cream separa tor did not exist, and now more than two million are in use throughout ' the world. | | The average girl will find her com ; plexion improved by the following j weekly treatment.

THE ART OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
THE ART OF MILKING. The art of milking is considered as being on a level with pumping water, or any other simple work, and yet there are many, points nended to , stamp a man as a go^od milker. Too many children are allowed to attend to this important work and many chronic troubles of cheese and the cheese factory originate right here. | A good experienced milker can soon I tell if there is something wrong with i the udder and milk, and Trill not al low such milk to be delivered to th? factory, but what can you expect of a child ? Cleanliness is absolutely I necessary to success in the factory. Everybody knows this and yet you can notice cows being milked that have udders covered with dirt, main ly caused by the swamp-like condi tion of some of the barnyards. ! Do tho milk utensils always get 1 proper care ? Are they properly wash ed with hot water, and kept in pro per places ? Are they used exclusively for their purpose alone ? I think not, or else the collection of things of all va...
CHAPTER XXI. POOR PAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
CHAPTER XXI. POOR PAT. It was th# final day of tbo trial o£ John Qarvill ; the evidence had told terribly against him. His counsel had fought hard for a favourable verdict, but when the jury, left the court even the most sanguine feared the verdict would go against him. As for Jack, the confinement and the suspense of the last two days had told upon him, but in spite of that he looked a noble fellow as he entered the dock when the jury had filed into their places. In another moment the foreman had spoken. The verdict was guilty, with a recommendation to mercy, as the prisoner had received great pro vocation. "I will see that your recommenda tion is forwarded to the Home Sec retary, but I do not see how he can act upon it. The murder was not done in the heat of passion, but was deliberately planned, and the de ceased was lured to his doom, under the pretext that he was requirod pro fessionally," said, the judge, who then proceeded t.o pass sentence. A minute or two later Jack disap p...

HUMAN NATURE. ECCENTRICITIES OF THE GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
HUMAN NATURE. - ECCENTRICITIES OF TUB GREAT. * In an interesting: articl* in th« "New York Tribune," entitled "Ec centricities of the Great," Mr. Ed- ] win Tarrisse presents a list of notable people who h«.ve shown pe culiarities of on® sort or another. Kant, the German metaphysician, he says, stands at the head of the class of truly great eccentricities. One of Kant's hobbies in the art of taking care of himself was to avoid garters. He permitted no ligature to be placed on any part of his body, fearing to hinder in the slight est degree the circulation of the blood. 1 He found it necessary at the same time to keep up hie stockings. Ac cordingly, he had Ioors attached to them, and outside each hip he wore a contrivance t-hat may lie called a box windlass. These affairs some what resembled an angler's reel with a spring, which secured the line at any given point. A VIOLINIST'S REVENGE. Paganini had his share of ecceti • tricity. He feared no one, and when "he was disposed to fly off...
