PEOPLE'S PARTY. The annual meeting of the Tnn gamak branch of the People's Party took place in the Mechanics' Hall on Saturday afternoon last. The presi dent (Mr A. Mulquiney) occupied the cbair, and theto was a good attend ance of members, Tho President, in opening the pro ceedings, said that (lie Liberal Party hid been successful in obtaining a double dissolution, and the forthcom ing election would prove one of the greatest political battles in the his tory o£ the Commonwealth, and the people would have to decide which party would rule Australia-Liberal or Libor. The double dissolution was absolutely necessary in order to pre vent waste of time and the stagna tion of politics. He was pleased to know that their member (Mr C. J.

ADRIFT ON AN ICEBERG A SECOND OFFICER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

ADRIFT ON AN ICEBERG SECOND OFFICER'S STORY. "?'ail ho! Vessel right ahead, sir! She's close to us, sir! Port, sir, port!" yelled the lookout man at two o'clock one foggy morning, as the Morning Herald was speeding along over the wintry seas of the Southern Ocean, bound for Valparaiso. "Hard a-port!" shouted the chief officer, who was on watch at the time, but had not ,seen the vessel un til reported by the lookout man. "Hard over, man, hard over!" But, alas! the ship's head paid off too late, and, with a fearful crash, we struck, not a vessel, as it was sup posed, but an iceberg. I was second officer of the ship, and it had been- my watch below at the time of the occurrence; but I had been awakened by hearing the fran tic shouting of the man on the lookout, and the loud, eager, and ex citedly-given orders of the chief offi cet- to the man at the helm, and, hav ing an instinctive dread that some thing serious was about to happen, I hastily jumped out of ray bunk, and slipping on my ...

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is the actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can give it in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. Thatr snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile.

COMPOSITION FLOORING FOR SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

COMPOSITION FLOORING FOR SHIPS. A composition flooring has at last been invented which seems to meet the requirements demanded by ship builders for waterproof deck and floor coverings. The chief difficulty with jtiier composition floorings has been that they are too hard, and cannot be kept from cracking under the strains and stresses of a floating structure. The new composition has such resili ency and power of expansion to take up the vibrations of a ship and all changes in temperature, from 30deg. below zero in winter to 100 deg. in the summer. In addition, the flooring forms a perfect bond with wood, steel, and concrete-so perfect,that it can not be removed except with a hammer and chisel. As it is entirely mineral in character, it is absolutely proof against cold, fire, or water. The com position is a mixture of asphalt, pow dered stone, and other ingredients, which is cooked in a mass for many hours. It is applied boiling hot and solidifies quickly. While it is per fectly impe...

FEMALE DETECTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

FEMALE DETECTIVES. The adoption of women as police may be followed by a similar course in London. Scotland Yard, however, has, of course, employed women for years, and one of the oflicials there told an interviewer recently that it is probable that more women will be employed in the future to deal with certain kinds of inquiries and cases. "The old idea of the policeman's wife being used for detective work," he remarked, "is quite antiquated. At the present moment there are special ly-trained women working on cases in London, and each carries with her a small card which can be shown to any one who questions her authority. Wo men detectives had their share in the campaign against fortune tellers in the West-end, and where women are to be watched and shadowed it is ob viously impossible to employ men for the work. Some valuable information in regard to the activities of suffra gettes was gained by women, but it would be fatal to their usefulness if these female detectives were to don ...

CRETA HUNGERFORD'S SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

CRETA HUNGERFORD'S SACRIFICE. By Mildred Relphe. If ever a girl's hair could be de scribed as her crowning glory, it was so in the case of Greta Hungerford. In color it was the rarest and mos* exquisite shade of red-gold immortal ised by Titian, and so luxuriant that when, unbound it veiled her tall, slender figure in a mantle of waves and ripples and curls down to her very knees, far finer and more be coming than Lesbia's. It waved olf from her broad, low forehead ii.' heavy, shining masses, and was gath ered into a great silken mass at tlje back of her graceful little head, the thick coils wound in and about until it covered it from the crown to the nape of the slender neck. This perfect June afternoon the brilliant sunbeams stole warmh* through the open window of the cosy sitting-room, and burnished into n golden glory Greta's magnificent tresses as she stood before her young sister, Madge, engaged in animated discussion. "That white 'brocade, with just ~ touch of color in your p...

A NOBLE EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

NOBLE EXAMPLE. In the cliapel of Glenalmond School, in Perthshire, there is a marble slab with this stirring story recorded upon it. There was once in the school a pupil named Alexander Cumine Rus sell, who became an officer in the 74th Highlanders when only a lad of seventeen. In connection with the memorable loss of the "Birkenehad," he won himself immortal glory. The troopship struck upon a rock; the soldiers were formed in ranks upon the deck to die; the women and child ren were being saved in boats. Rus sell was ordered into one of the boats to command it, and a little way off he watched with dimmed eyes the doomed ship. When she went down he saw creatures of the deep contend ing for his beloved comrades. Then he saw a sailor's form rise up close to the boat, and a hand strive to grasp the side. A woman in the craft cried called out in agony "Save him! Oh, save him, sir, he is my husband," but there was no room for another, and the boat was laboring heavily as it was. Russell l...

BABY'S FIRST TOOTH. "George," exclaimed Mrs. Young husband, with a radiant smile, "baby has a tooth!" '?'Has he?" was the response, in a tone which betrayed no emotion. "You don't seem surprised." "I'm not surprised. All babies have first teeth. If ours didn't have any I'd manage to work up some excite ment-maybe." "I thought you'd be ever so pleased and happy about it." "No; I don't see that it's any oc casion for especial congratulation. The baby has my deepest sympathy." "What for?" "For having his first tooth. He has just struck the opening chapter of a long story of trouble. Pretty soon he'll have other teeth." "Of course he will." "Every one he cuts will hurt him. Then his second teeth will come along and push these out. That will hurt him again. Some of the new ones will grow crooked, as likely as not, and he will have to go to the dentist and have a block and tackle adjusted to them to haul them into line. Then he'll cut his wisdom teeth. They will hurt a lot. After that he'...

WRECKED ON AN ICEBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

WRECKED ON AN ICEBERG. In 1911, in the Gulf of Finland, an entire fishing village had been estab lished on an ice-floe outside the is land ot Lavensaari. During a squall, a huge floe broke off, and was driven down the gulf. Owing to the excellent catches of fish, the fishing population was more than twice the usual num ber, and five hundred men, women and children were carried away. Ice-breakers left Helsingfors and Riga to proceed to the rescue. On the next morning a message was re ceived from the lighthouse at Seils kar, stating that many masses of drifting ice had been seen moving in the direction of Incermanland. On the fourth day part of the liugh floe was driven ashore on the Russian coast with a hundred and twenty per sons on it, the survivors of the five hundred. Four terrible days and nights had been passed at sea, the suffering of the poor people being in describable. The floe was constantly diminishing, and masses broke off, the people on these being drowned in the inters...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Corks may be made airtight and watertight by keeping them immers ed in oil for five minutes. Ink stains on the fingers may be re moved by slightly damping the brim stone end of a match, and with rub bing the stains. When boiling fowls or fish, add to the water in which they are boiled the juice of half a lemon. This will make them beautifully white. If moths are in a carpet, spread a damp towel over the part and iron it dry with a hot iron. The heat and steam will kill the worms and eggs. Every woman who cuts out from a paper pattern knows of the bother in pinning it fiat to the cloth. Take a hot iron and smooth the tissue paper pattern over the cloth, and it will re main flat without pins. To clean a mackintosh or dark cloths from mud stains, brush off all the mud and rub all stains with the cut surface of a raw potato, then sponge with clear water, using a piece of dark material for sponging. Before blacking the stove, rub soap suds on the hands, allowing the soa...

Chill Proof. The Duke ot Fotheringill bad given a great feast at Fotheringill Castle to commemorate the coming-of-age of his son and heir, the dashing Lord Highcollar. fo this function had been invited the journalistic representative of a leading "daily." Oil the scribe's return to Fieet-st. he was asked to relate his adventures at the ducal home, and, among the questions, someone asked him "if the duchess's affability had not somewhat embarrassed him." "Not a bit of it," he replied, with that air of serene ease, calmness, and self-satisfaction which so eminently becomes him. "Before I took up newspaper work, my boy, I used to test refrigerators!" If thou canst not obtain a kindness which thou desirest, put a good face on it, show no discontent nor surli ness; an hour may come when thy request may be granted.

SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914

SOME BULL'S EYES. How the weeds do like the warm days after rain. Hit 'em a clip the minute they stick up their heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion for stock to break through. A staple or a post in time saves temper. ' It is just as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges of his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling and carries in the coal. The man who wins is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by skill...
