RESOURCEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
RESOURCEFUL, The late General Booth," said a j Salvation Army official, "often used [ to urge the ' down-and-outer ' to cul- j tivate the quality of resourcefulness.! "He would illustrate this ' quality j by the story of a resourceful I American editor; who found, one j night, that he had neither adver- j tisements nor copy for his third page. The page ' accordingly ap peared blank, with a note in small] type at the top :— j " 'This space will be useful for the j children to write upon.' " To make fly-papers boil linseed oilN with a little resin till it forms a stringy paste when cold. Spread this on paper, using a large brush. This is inexpensive, and makes one of the best traps lor flies.
A Seal Story. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
A Seal Story. The following' articlc on " Seals as pels" may be of interest, says a L. \Vhilo ^shore-shoo t suddenly stumbled on a young seal which had evidently been enjoying a nap-. Being anxious to capture it alive and uninjured, I was at a loss how to proceed until I re called some of the reminiscences of a near neighbour, an old Davis-Strait man. Profiting by this recollection I picked up a handy tangle-stalk: and, ever so lightly, struck the seal over the snout. The edect was as tonishing. With a tremulous move ment of the entire body the animal rolled over on its back, the fore flippers waving pathetically for a moment as if deploring the inhu manity of man. Cntching sight of an old sack washed up on the beach I then pulled it hastily over the head of the stunned animal, and slinging the burden on my back soon had tho satisfaction of feeling that my cap tive was very much alive. F'or over a week I kept him anchored by one ! of his tail-flippers in a sheltered creek wherein ou...

SEASICKNESS. HOW IT MAY BE PREVENTED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 28 August 1914
SEASICKNESS. * HOW IT MAY BE rRE^"ENTrWD. There arc nearly 113 many r&lt;jm»S dies for mal do mer as thard ure for a cold in the head; rind any one will know what that means. Hut as tho old saying has it," "one man's meat is another man's poi son." And so, because a remedy i.s efficacious with one, it decs )>ot foiiow that it will provo success ful with another. The moi-al of which is, if one prescription does not cure, try another. Jr. the first place, remember that tho head and the stomr.:h eio fo iruch in sympathy with ea:h other that whatever affects one will surely influence the other ; so that tho worst possible thing you can do is to make up your mind beforehand that you are certain to be ill. That is the very way to produce the head acho and nausea which is the pre cursor of seasickness. As far as prevention goes, the sensible glau is to diet oneself for two or three days before embarking, keeping to plain, . wholesomo food, and neither eating or drinking any thin...

The week's digest of war news shows that Germany has amassed over half a million well-equipped troops in Bel gium, and five pressing steadily forward towards the French frontier. The French and British troops attacked near Mons, but had to retreat to defensive positions, thoro being heavy losses on both sides. - The Germans occupied Brussels, which was abandond by the Belgians who fell back on Antwerp.

THE DAIRY. 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONB MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914
THE DAIRY. ■ ■ ? 1 " 11 • 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONB MONTH. It was recently my pleasure, as re presentative of the Oklahoma Agri cultural College, to supervise th» testing of five cows in the American Jersey. Cattle Club's Register of Mer it, Nowata County, Oklahoma. This Jersey herd which consists of some thirty head of cows and an equal number of calves and yearlings, is recognised as one of the best in Okla homa, and with its strain of good producing show animals will no doubt very shortly rank with the best Jersey farms in America. At the head of this herd is Finan cial Countess's Lad, who was grand champion bull at the 1912 Iowa Dairy Cattle Congress. This was the largest and most strongly contested dairy cattle show ever held in Amer ica. In selecting Financial Countess's Lad, Mr. Jones obtained a bull that is not onlj a great show animal, but one that is also a prepotent breeder. His dam, Financial Countess, one of the greatest Jersey cows ever impor ted, made 9351b. lOoz....
WILLIE'S PUZZLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914
WILLIE'S TUZZLE. -* "Mother," said little Willie, who had just been corrected for mak ing a slight departure from, the strict path of truth, "were you al ways good when you were a little girl •}" ' I "Yes, always." ' j I "And didn't you ever tell stories?" No, never." "Did father ever tell them, then?" he said. "Certainly not," she replied. "Nor grandma ?"• "No." "Nor grandpa ?" "No, of course not." Willie's brow contracted for a mo ment ; then he gave a sigh. "Well, what T can't make out," he observed, thoughtfully, "is where I got the habit from." A bucket was once the innocent cause of a terrible war. Nine cen turies ago some soldiers of Modena stole a bucket as a joke from . a public well at Bologna. When they refused to restore it, scrimmag ing commenced between the soldiers of the rivnl States, and a. war en sued, which spread until it invol ved the greater part of Europe. In I more reccnt times a debt of a few shillings of which the Bey of Al giers. demanded payment through t...
A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OF "EARLY DAYS" WITH AN "OLDTIMER." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914
A South Pacific Echo. — REMINISCENCES OF " EARLY DAYS" WITH AN " OLD TIMER." An elderly, retired South Sea Is land trader ha-s supplied some in teresting information regarding the trade customs of th® Pacific Is landers in the early', days." "I have no objection," he remark ed, "to your making use of niy re* •marks, as long as you withhold my name, as I do not wish to be drawn into any controversy, since you plainly see, I am too old for that sort of thing now." ! On being assured that his wish would be rcspected, he. proceeded to narrate the following :—"Before we ,,whitemen camo to the Islands to trade, the ' niggers' did not have many wants, but after our arrival on the scene their requirements j underwent a rapid change. Most | of them suddenly discovered that jews' harps, tobacco, medicines, china arm bracelets, and especially live dogs, were absolute necessities ; of life. And I guess it was not for us to ' wade in' and alter their 1 views." THE DOG " STUNT." i "But why were l...
THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914
THE JUDGE WHO DIIDN'T JOKE. 1 The funny sayings of a judge who never joked form one of the finest collections of judicial humour ever published. This is "Arabiniana," a selection of the dicta of Sergeant William Arabin, who sat as a judge at the Old Builey from 1830 to 1839.. For instance,'his remark to counsel : "If you can'.show precisely at what moment the offence was com mitted, and prove that the prisoner was not there when he did it, he could not possibly have done it." And he sagely added, as an after thought : "We cannot divest oursel ves of common-sense in a Court of Justice." Another axiom he delivered him- . self of has been fathered on many other occupants of the Bench : "If ever there was a case of clearer evidence than this case, this case is that case."
Eyebrows and Character. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914
Eyebrows and Character. ♦ . j It is now conceded tbat the Greek eyebrow is quite in accord with the conception of mere physical beauty in women. Liko the rose bud mouth, it does not indicate the highest order of intelligence, and the arch is expressive always of greater sensibility and greater sense of character. Pcnnt growth of the eyebrows in variably denotes lack of vitality, and external applications are use less to promote or produce a growth until the general health improves ; on the contrary, heavy, thick eye brows indicate a strong constitu tion and great physical endurance. They are not beautiful on a wo man's face, however much they may signify either mental or bodily vigour, and when they are not only heavy, but. droop and meet at the nose, they are disagreeable. and are said to accompany an insincerc and prying nature. Homantic w'omen usually have a very well-defined arch in the centre of the eyebrow, while a sense of humour is indicated in the arch nearer the nose. v Lo...

MITSON'S DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914
MITSON'S DOG. Mitson's shop in our placc has been closed for a week or so. Mit son was perfectly willing to have' it open, but circumstances rendered it necessary for him to suspend bu siness for a while. There hart been a good many burglaries, and Mitson bought a dog to keep in his shop at night. The man that sold the dog ' said that its one strong peculiarity was its vigilance. So the man turned the dog loose in the shop, and Mitson locked up for the night and went home. When he came down in the morn ing the dog flew at him as soon as he opened the door, and attempted to breakfast on Mr. Mitson's legs ; thereupon Mr. Mitson shut the door and sat down to think. Then he went after the man who sold the dog ; but b» had gone out of town to see his aunt, and wouldn't be''back for a month. Mitson then undertook to coax the dog through the crack of the door ; but the ani mal still mani/tsted a resolute de termination to chew Mitson's legs, and so Mitson closed the door again and began to...
