THE RELIEF OF MAFEKING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

THE RELIEF OF MAFEKING. On May 4, 1800, Lord Roberts despatched Colonel Mahon—a cool hcaded Irishman—from Kimberley with a relief force numbering 940, to succour Mafeking, which was be ing so gallantly deftn'ied by Col onel Baden-Powell against the Boers. On the 11th Mahon reached and left Vryburg, the half-way house be tween Kimberley and Afafekin^, and four days later, after some smart fighting and splendid marching, ef fected a junction with Colonel Plu tner—who, with 800 men from liho desisi, was advancing from the north —at Jan Maribi's, twenty miles west of Mafeking. The combined forces sighted Mafe king at eleven, o'clock on the morn ing of May l(j, and a sharp battle commenced with Commandant Sny mari, who fought bravely till six o'clock, when the White House and trenches were carried at the point of the bayonet, and the Boers were on the run, being assisted by Baden Powell's gunners, who dropped one or two shells into the commandoes. At seven o'clock the relief iorca bivoua...

Strathcona's Cheque. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

Strathcona's Cheque. + During his lifetime the late Lord Stratheona made two boasts—one that he never lost a paper onco it got into his hands, and the other that he never received payment for his services to the Canadian Pacific Railway. His executors in going through his papers found 011 file Uncashed cheques from the Pacific from the inception of the company until the time of his death, and they have now made claim 011 the company for the payment of these. The Ca nadian Pacific has announced that . it will honour every cheque, so that the heirs to the estate will re> 1 ceive a considerably augmented sum.

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. When Captain Philipp sailed for Botany Bay with a batch of con victs, on May 13, 1787, probably neither skipper, crew, nor prisoners imagined that they were making his tory. Yet the little fleet, with its 564. rtiale and 192 /emalo convicts (besides soldiers, sailors, ml offi cials), was practically the- founda tion of our great Commonwealth. Considering' the comparatively slight crimes for which transportation was Inflicted in the "good old times," and the merciless nature of the "jus tice" dealt out to the lower classes for slight deviations from the path of virtue, it is quite possible that Captain philipp's gaolbirds and their warders contained an appreciable proportion of what is needed to build up a new colony. The success of the experiment is its be6t excuse, though no one who has studied the black side of the trans portation system would desire to see it renewed in'its entirety. The allotment of prisoners as "servants" (practically as glaves...

GLORIOUS WAR! [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

GLORIOUS WAR ! Gabriel Sachet, who gained his baton and dukedom in Spain, was the only prominent French corps commander to emerge from that grim, inglorious warfare with repu tation enhanced. All Napoleon's other generals imimired their credit, and even Sucket smirched his name, on which the storm of L©rida, in Western Catalonia, May 13, 1810, left a mark not to be whitewashed over by admirers. The city fell, after a brief siege, but Suchet, wanting the citadel also, gained it by methods simple, effec tive, but brutal, perhaps the great est atrocity perpetrated by any j combatant throughout the war. I They consisted in sending detach ments through the streets with or ders to thrust the population, along j with the wreck of the garrison, into ) the ditch and over the drawbridge into the citadel. Pressed on by the French, they filled the castle yard before the governor could exclude them. Then, the castle being cran. med with 15,000 men, women, and children, Suchet bombarded it with, ...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE PARISIAN PITMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. . " > THE PARISIAN PITMAN. While Sir Isaac Pitman died rich and honoured, the inventor of the most popular French short hand system passed away re , cently in comparative obscurity. Abbe Emile I>uploye was a young priest who formed a sudden and inexplicable taste for stenography (which, of course, forms no part ot the curriculum necessary to qualify for Holy Orders, Catholic or Pro testant). He studied the existing systems profoundly, saw their im perfections, and decided to improve them. He quitted hi*; ecclesiastical duties, and, working in collaboration with his brother, invented the Duployan system. But to invent is only the first step. The abbe's notable feat was to popularise his system. He founded at Paris the "Stenographic Institute of the Two Hemispheres." He published journals, founded li braries, formed classes, and deliver ed lectures. His energy was croVn ed by success. Canon J>uploye died at St. Maur des Fosses, near Paris, on May 11,...

EXPEDITIONARY FORCES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

EXPEDITIONARY FAROES. On Friday the officers in charge of 7.3rd battalion of the Citizen Forces received instructions to mobilise, and proceed to -QueensdifTe. As a result Lieut. Smith issued his orders and on Tuesday evening over 30 young men from Murtoa and Minyip assembled here and were equipped in full march ing order. They were joined in the evening by the Warracknabeal con tingent under Lieut. Kinghorn, and nearly seventy of them were quartered at the Mechanics' Hall for the night,. Sentries were placed at all doors and means of exit, and some coarse horse play resulted, one young fellow getting pi'ieked in the cheek by a sentry's bayonet, and he will doubtless have to answer for his conduct. Sleep was out of the question, without blankets, especially as reveille was expected at ■1 a.in. The novelty of tho situation appealed to the buoyant spirits, and . the night was spent in revelry.

After the toast of ''The King" had been honored, Cr. Slaughter proposed the health of the newly-elected president, and con •jratiilated him upon his elevation once more to that dignified position. Cr. Dyer was taking the chair in a troublous time, when the position required a man of experience. Mis term of office would b1 made the m >re important by reason of the fact that Great Britain was not now at peace with other nations.

Big Wars from Little Causes. TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

Big Wars from Little Causes. > TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVE-S. ? While, of course, important prin ciples and interests are involved, the fact reniaiuB that America's ul timatum to Mexico was tho direct outcome of Huerta's refusal to fire _ the salute demanded of twenty one guns. It seems an absurd trifle for two countries to sacrifice human life for. Tho afTair, however, pro vides but another illustration of the manner in which little sparks some times bring about big international blazes. The war in which we lost th. United States, for example, began because the citizens of Boston emp tied a number of tea-chests into Bos ton harbour. They objected to hav ing their tea taxed for the benefit of England, and showed their re sentment by tipping it into the sea. The result was that hostilities be gan at once. And it was really because a fe'n people lost their heads in the ex citement of the moment that South Carolina began the war between North and South in America. Whil...

During the week great fighting has occurred on the Belgian frontier, the Allies being hard pressed, although in flicting great slaughter on Germans. The British losses are 5000, but they fought valiantly, mowing down the enemy in thousands. Tho Austrian defeats by the Rus sians are of a colossal character. The British Fleet sank two German cruisers and three destroyers near Heligoland, about 900 being killed. Japan is bombarding Tsin-tau. Checking and slightly turning the German right, the allied forces have" stemmed the avalanche of invasion in France. The Kasier has ordered his army to take Paris or die.

The Useful Reindeer. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 4 September 1914

The Useful Reindeer. In sub-Arctic countries the rein deer takes the placc of ox, sheep, and horses. It gives milk, meat, and clothing, and is a good beast of burden. From the milk the Laplander makes a cheese. It is true that those who have tasted it do not praise it ; they say it is hard, and i rank of taste. But that may be | due to bad cheese-making. At any rate, reindeer-milk cheese is the Laplander's chief food during the long winters of the North. In the summer he lives on a frugal diet of curds and whey. He makes no but ter, but the Finlanders do ; it is of a very pale colour—nearly white. At' the end of the. summer the reindeer becomes very fat, and the flesh is excellent. It is regarded as the greatest delicacy by their own ers—a delicacy to which they treat themselves only on rare occasions, the reindeer has the thickest skin of all northern animals, and the warmest for clothing. As draught animals, the reindeer are used not only for drawing the sleighs in winter but for ...
