If Only We Had Keener Senses. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

If Only We Had Keener Senses. 1 I Of course everyone knows by now I that everything we hear or sea comes in a wave motion. But it is not so well known that-there are a great many waves that we cannot detect at all by means of any of our senses, and prenumably a great many more that we have never been able to detect even ar tificially. Take other waves, for instance. We know that those of a certain length are heat waves; they can I be felt, but not seen. Shorter ones are light waves, from the long ■ rod to the short violet. Even shorter ones are what are known | as the ultra-violet., and these have to be detected artificially, by the taking of a picture in the dark. Even shorter ones are the X-rays, which are in visible. Much longer ones than the longest heat wave are the electric waves of wireless telegraphy. Now, remember that all the waves spe cified diller in only one particular —that of length. IVe cannot conceive (says A. L. Hodges, writing in the American "Sunday Magazine") of...

BELL-RINGING RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

BELL-RINGING RECORD. A bell-ringing record which has stood for 130 years was beaten the other day at Ashton-under-L>ync Parish Church by a team of cam panologists under the conductorship of Mr. Samuel Wood. The Ashton •**v ringers decided some time ago to attempt to beat the treble boh royal record on ten bells of 12,000 . changes which was accomplished at ShorediUh in 1781. Beginning their task at seven o'clock in the morning the ringers succeeded in their feat, which they . carried out in nine hours thirty-four , minutes. The peal reached nearly • ; 14,000 changes. The sagacity of a horse belonging to a Captain Watson, of Ardow, furnishes the "Scotsman " with a good story. The horse had been graz ing in a field for some time, and had lost a shoe. Seemingly he felt the loss of his usual metal support, and, managing to get out of the field, he travelled a con siderable distance to Dervaig, on the north-west of Mull. The road he took passes the village smithy, and the blacksmith w...

Effect of Mind and Body. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

Effect of Mind and Body. « "The exaltation of victory makes wounded soldiers oblivious of gain,, and the depression of defeat in creases mortality. If a cat is frightened for ten or fifteen min utes by a barking dog, a sample of its blood will make strips of certain muscles relax when they are immersed in it, though such a por tion of blood had no efiect on them before the emotional disturbance. Frightened rabbits show almost complete prostration, and their brain cells, in contrast with those of nor mal animals, take a deeper stain from certain chemicals, and their size and shape are strikingly al tered." These well vouched state ments are made by Mr. F. W. Eastman, and he adds an interesting experiment. "If an individual is placed in circuit with a delicate galvanometer and made to laugh, to feel sad, or is suddenly surpris ed, there will be movements in the instrument indicating the passage of siTiuH electric currents. Such in teresting scientific facts as these, and many others, ...

THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

I THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. Twelve months at least should be allowed for the "seasoning" of a j high-grade crickct-bat—that is, from j the time it is roughly shaped. I In the final stage of its manufac ! ture the surface of the blade is { subjected to great pressure bv means [ of special machinery. I Why is all this necessary ? Because a hat has to withstand tremen dous blows. ^ An interesting experiment once car ! ried out at Woolwich Arsenal showed that C. T. B. Turner, the ! great Australian bowler, could bowl J a hall at the pace of eighty-one ! feet a .second, and there have been I plenty of bowlers faster than "The j Demon." | However, a tolerably simple ma thematical calculation shows that I a cricket-ball travelling at this rate j and striking a stationary bat. will j exert a pressure equal to about 871b. at the point of impact, j But, of course, a bat is not at i ways stationar3', and when it is swung against the ball, the pres sure on the bat is enormously in creased. j Here...

BIRD SAGACITY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

BIRD SAGACITY. ? A friend residing on the shora of Loch Linnhe tells me, says a cor respondent, of a curious iustancc of bird sagacity that came under his observation last year. In a neigh bour's garden a pair of redstarts had built their nest and hatched out their young. Before tho birds were fully, fledged, my friend happen ed to visit the owner of the gar den and to examine tho nest and its contents. The fledglings num bered four, and, on handling them, he discovered that one of them had its leg newly broken. How the accident had occurred, it was impos sible to conjecture, but the fact remained that the unlucky bird would not be able to fend for it self as soon as the other members of the brood. My correspondent ex pressed a desire to take the cripple home with him, so that he might provide for its well-being until the injured limb would heal. This ar rangement was agreed to, and the chick was deposited on a bed of dry grass within a small basket. The receptacle was taken into th...

OIL FOR LIFEBOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

on. FOR LIFEBOATS. Ten lifeboat crows are experi menting with a small oil bag to ascertain the effect upon rough, shallow water. The minutely perfo rated bag, containing a tin of thick oil—which is smashed by the coxswain—and a wad of oakum, is towed from the weather side of the boat, and is designed to moderate breaking, following- seas. These latter are always a menace to the safety of a lifeboat, and hitherto the view has been generally held that oil, although an effective agent in deep water, was of no avail against them. The quantity of oil varies from a gallon to half a gallon, according to the size of the boat. Recently the device was tested at Worthing in exceedingly rough wea ther, and it has been reported to the National Lifeboat Institution, wliicli iswuetJ the that the tests are regarded as satisfactory.

' ' .Perhaps tae 'most, r«iu»<.w«' <«*•••• —w. point was that which was associa ted the name of tho late Mr. 'Wil liam Henry Hunt. One day this talented artist discovered a rustic village beauty, and proceeded to uti lise har face as a model for one of his gloriously brilliant water colour picture-portraits. After it was finished ho sold it, and at the purchaser's earnest request, divulged the identity r«f the model. The girl was sought out by the buyer, who found her as intelligent as she was beautiful. He had her educated, and in due course led her to the altar, the marriage turning out a most happy one. Mr. G. A.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. HIS HUNDREDTH HUNDRED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. 1 HIS HUNDREDTH HUNDRED. ■ Tom Hay ward eucceeded in scor ing his hundredth century in .first class cricket, and ther^jy robbed Dr. W. O. Grace of the distinction of being the only cricketer able to claim this honour. T)r. W. G, Grace began playing first-class ericket in I860, but it was not until 1893 that he made his hundredth hundred. Hay ward accomplished the feat in his twenty first season. But then, of course, being a younger man, he had many wore opportunities owing to the fact that the first-class fixture list has been greatly extended during . recent years. Hayward's greatest season undoubt edly was 1906, though probably tho finest innings he ever played w'as the 130 he made against Australia at Manchester, in 1899,

THEREFORE, ADVERTISE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

THEREFORE, ADVERTISE. The following paragraph from an article by Andrew Lang may prove profitably suggestive to those who have wares to sell and are shy about advertising them :— "When a goose lays an egg," said Mr. Lang, "she just waddles off as if she was ashamed of it—because she is a goose. When a hen lays an egg—ah, sho calls heaven and earth to witness it. The hen is | a natural-born advertiser. Hence j the demand for hen' eggs excoeds the demand for goose eggs, and. the hen has all the business she can at tend to."

is the Sun Losing Mass? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

is the Sun Losing Mass ? The work of Einstein on the Principle of Relativity shows that a body which radiates energy loses a portion of its mass depending on the energy radiated. It follows that the sun, which continually ra diates energy, is constantly losing mass; ■ M". J. Rosier has calculat ed that the sun loses a mass equal to that of our earth in thirty mil lion years. If it 1 >o assumed that the mass thus lost is gravitational mass, it follows that the length of the year increases by six seconds in a million years, and that in the same time the mean longitude of the earth is affected in such a way as to produce a variation of one tenth of a year, i.e., a retardation of thirty-six days in the seasons. Such variat ions are too minute to be ob servable. - In stellar systems pos sessing a higher temperature the ef fect would be much more marked, for the energy radiated "by a body varies as the fourth power of its absolute temperature. If, as M. Nordmann believes, there exists ...

The Eccentric Clubs of New York. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914

The Eccentric Clubs of New York. The clubs of New York are in many cases novel and eccentric in character. There Is, for instance, the Tenderloin. Tenderloin is the nickname of & district of rather un savoury reputation between Four teenth and Forty-second Streets. Part of it is thickly inhabited by coloured people; another part con tains most of the theatres ; and in the heart of it, established in a tumble-down wooden shanty, which was once known as " Eel Pot," is the Tenderloin Club. It was formerly a haunt of thieves; it now numbers among its members some of the moat distinguished authors, artists, musicians, doctors, and lawyers in the city ; but it still retains many of the internal characteristics of a thieves' kitchen. The floors are sanded or saw dusted ; the furniture is rude in the extreme ; and there is an ostenta tious absence of comfort ; and short pipes and stone mugs ot beer are the order of the evening. Above the entrance is the motto. " Who enters here leav...
