Is it Pleasant to Die. STRANGE SENSATIONS ON. THRESHOLD OF DEATH. FIRSTHAND STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 11 September 1914

Is it Pleasant to Die. 1 STRANGE SENSATIONS ON-. . - THRESHOLD OF DEATH, . >; ! FIRSTHAND STORIES. K : * , Interest in the discussion on "The pains of death" is stimulated by some recent lettees published in "The Times." A correspondent subscribing himself "A Traveller " \trote :—"Rome years ago, while in Tn iia, I was suddenly and virulent ly seized with Asiatic cholera. In addition to terrible pain, I suffered agonies of thirst, os those stricken with cholera always do. At such moments small pieces of lcc are given to the patient to suck, and he cannot retain evon a spoonful of liquid, but I happened to be where ico was unprocurable. For some time my mind was filled with thoughts of wounded soldiers lying parched at night upon the battle field. I felt at one with them, and then at last I realised the horrors of war. These images haunted me, Then, _ ci3 tne agonising pain pro duced exhaustion, I swiftly under stood that I was probably about to dio. The thought seemed to bring gr...

The First Cigars. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 11 September 1914

The First Cigars. «♦ The cigar is now so common an object that we hardly realise how recently it came into use. A letter of Robert Blootnfield, the author of "The Farmer's Boy," dated May 21, 1803, gives us what is probably the approximate date of its introduc tion. "I. spent two hours yesterday," writes the shoemaker poet, "in the big house at the cornier of Clarges ,street, in company • of the Duke. His Grace gave me three segars, ono of which I then smoaked, carrying the others away in my pocket. Ilis Grace tells me this style of smouk ing is much in favour with French men and Spaniords, and that it is the great cost of segars that stands in the way of their use. here. I do not account . three segars with a pipeful of good, honest tobacco." The cigarette came in much later. Iii the early sixties, cigarettes were J only smoked (in England) by for-1 eigners or Britons who had acquir ed tlie habit while residing abroad, j The first English cigarettes were stained brown, to imitate t...

THE Fin ST STEAMER TO .'.11033 THE ATLANTIC. The 'Savannah, a 350-ton brig, was built for the packet service be tween Havre and New York, j .Moses Rogers, afterwords captain of the Savannah, prevailed upon a firpa of shippers m America to purchase her, and lit her out as a steam ship with a single low-pressure en gino of about UO horse-power. The voyage really commenced from New York, but the vessel coasted round to Savannah as a preliminary trial trip. On May 23, 181.0, the Savannah set out on her daring venture. The following month the columns of the "Georgian" had a very curious para graph to the effect that a schooner had arrived at Newbury Port, the commander stating that on May 29 ho had sighted a vessel from which volumes of smoke were issu ing. Judging it to be a vessel on fire, they bore up to render aid, but soon found she went faster with fire and smoke than the schooner with all her sails set. Again she was reported as a ship on fire. from the telegraph station at Cape C...

Dowries for Gifts. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 11 September 1914

Dowries for Gifts. At different- times thoughtful peo ple have stipulated in their wills that a certain sum of money shall be set aside to provide dowries for girls. The best-known example is the Bute Marriage 'Dowry, established by a Marquess of Bute, who left £1000 for the purpose. The annual inter est upon this money, about £30, is presented each year to a claimant for it, the fortunate girl being cho sen by the Mayor of Cardiff. When handing the money over to the lucky young lady and her sweetheart, it is customary for the mayor to read the young couple a portion of the second chapter of St. Jolin, which refers to the marriage in Cana of Galilee, Dowries for girls are also pre sented at Guildford, the practice of throwing dice for what is called the "maid's money" taking place an nually. The money is derived from capital set apart in the will of a certain .lohn How, who requested i that dowries should be paid to poor ! servant girls who had worked faith ' fully in the borough fo...

A MEXICAN ROYAL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 11 September 1914

„ A MEXICAN ROYAL TRAGEDY. On May 19, 1861, Maximilian, the handsome, blue-eyed, fair-bearderl brother of the Austrian Emperor, made his proud entry into the capi tal of Mexico, the land over which he had been chosen by Napoleon to rule. There was 110 portent on that glorious day to hint at the tragedy which was to close his reign and his life within three short years. It had been from no lack of warn ing that he had accepted the crown jo! Mexico as the puppet of the designing Napoleon. ITis brother, the Austrian Emperor, and every member of the Royal House had warned him of the perils ho would encounter; but Fiis wife, a Belgian Princess, had scoffed at his fears. It was not long, however, before Mexico was seething with rebellion, and Maximilian's ihrone was totter ing to its fa 1'. Then,. thoroughly alarmed, the Empress Charlotte bade her husband hold- his throne I while she started for Europe to J supplicate Napoleon's help.

AN EPOCK-MAKING BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 11 September 1914

AN EPOCK-MAKIXC; BOOK. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was publish ed on March 20, 1852. The author 'Mrs. Beecher Stowe, was despond ent as to "whether anybody would read or attend to, her appeal" on behalf of the enslaved negroes <V the States. She Avas agreeably dis appointed both in a moral and fi nancial sense, for 10,000 copies sold in a few* days, and over i'00, 000 within a twelvemonth. Running night and day, the j mint ing presses could barely meet the demand. Tt was not only read, J but remembered and pondered over. The pity, the distress, the indigna tion long pent up in the writer's soul passed from her into the mil lions of readers of the book. The nation's conscience was awakened. John Brown was the first, but by no means the least, American to lay down his life for the cause of the negro freedom. A mighty civil war shook the Union to its very foun dations ; but the United States sur vived the fiery ordeal intact, and fin ally took her place among the civi lised nations ...

MURTOA PATRIOTIC FUND. Nearly £228 in Cash. PUBLIC MEETING. There was a good response to the meeting convened last Monday evening at Murtoa to organise a local patriotic fund. About 100 persons, male and female, were present, all displaying a commendable spirit of sympathy with the movement. Mr George Evans, J.P., was voted to the chair. The chairman felt that it was un necessary for him to explain why they were called together. Although they were late in starting a fund for the assistance of the lads who were going to the front, he had no doubt that sufficient evidence would be given that I evening to show their practical sympathy with the movement. The ladies of the town had already been working, and a second party of ladies had run a suc cessful euchre tournament and dance, the net proceeds of which (about ^13) would be harvdod over to this fund* Pastor Fischer had sent in a donation from the Kewell Literary Society.

The enemy suffered great loss, the Im perial Guards being decimated. Tha British fought valiantly. It is officially stated that the line of battle extends from Paris to "Verdun, a distance of 150 miles, and that 2,500,000 troops are engaged. With a large portion of their army in full retreat, their German supports withdrawing, and the remainder of their forces being furiously attacked by Russia in the north and Servia in the south, the position of the Austrians is desperate.
