Wereless for Miners. _—.— Aii invention lias been brought .to light which will servo to cousider-' ably minimiso the dangers to which every dny the large number of underground workers are exposed. A clever German subject, 11 err J. H. Reinecke, of Westphalia, has invented a system of wireless tele graphy for use in mines. The sys tem lias been adopted at Dinning toii Main Colliery ini Yorkshire, where instruments have been fixed' at two points and conversations. have been carried on with the same ease as is the case with ordinary telephones. There is a portable instrument adapted .for . use in the cage, whilst: -^ ascending and. .descending the shaft, and ' so a" means of communication, with those above gro.und in time of. disaster has been established. .. By this means rescue work will be considerably facilitated, . for... en tombed miners will be in direct communication with the i>it-head, thus being able to call for assist ance and give directions as to their whereabouts and t...

Law of the Flag. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

Law of the Flag. • 4 - There are quite a number of peo ple whom an excess of enthusiasm may lead into committing an ■ of- ' fence against - the law. On red letter days many a flag is hoisted which ought not to be, and com-, paratively few people are aware of., the restrictions on this point.: The. whole matter was laid down by an 'Order in Council dated November 5th,: 1800. This still remains, in force. The most important point to be. remembered is. that, the Royal Standard is the personal fluff ■ of the Sovereign. It- is hoisted where the Sovereign is residing,. and nowhere else, with, a few excep-; tions, such as certain' fortresses.on. Royal anniversa"ri.es o'r State occa sions, as laid down in the Royal .-Regulations. The Union Jack is the flag of the whole nation, and any-' ono. rniiy fly it. ' • ' ' For over two centuries the Bri tish . Fleet consisted of three divi-' sions—the red; the . white,. and the blue—and each division flew an "En sign" of a corresponding colour, thev ...

A Burglar Fiction. EMINENT DETECTIVE SPEAKS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

A Burglar Fiction. 1 EMINENT DETECTIVE SPEAKS. " Scientific burglary absolutely does not exist," is the pronounce ment of the former head of the Porls Surete, or detective depart ment, Xavier Gulchard, who has Just been interviewed on the subject, by Richard Arapu, a leading cri minologist. M. Ouichard, whose name became well known Inst year In connection with the automobile bandits, says that the conception of the twen tieth century burglar, who goo* about his work armed with all the resources and the latest discoveries I of science, is merely a joko Invented I by writers of fiction. "The truth Is quite different," ho ' went on. "Take, for instance, tho oxy-hydrogen blowpipe, which is : supposed generally to be used now ! to melt oway the locks of safes.

HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. ? By 8. W. Hopkins, Author of "On Four Brass Plates." etc.. etn. PART 12. ■ UHAFTEll XVII.—(Gontinuud.) One day Helen received a letter that made her heart leap. "We are coming to ICngland," wrote Abingdon. "Burton is doing splen didly, physically, but lie lias grown restless again. He is still looking for that girl. This- is troublesome here, for ull the women have black eyes and black hair—that is, most of the pretty one;-'. Once in a while we see a very light blonde, but these are apparently no better to Burton than the brunettes. 1 would like to try again the etlect on him of a gir'. with blue eyes and dark brown hair." There, was great, chattering over this. Mr. Brooke sat for a leng time listening. He had heard considerable about the doctor and his queer pa-' tient of late, since the days got cold enough to keep him indoors more. "You two young ladies do a great deal of talking," ho said, with a pleasant laugh. "Why don't you say right out just what you...

A Gate Latch. The enclosed illustration shows a simple gate latch. The movable part is made of oak about 2in. wide, and 2|iti. deep, with the edges rounded and a slot cut -in about :!in. to. allow of the catch moving buck. The piece of iron can bo Jin. by J-in. or lin. I by iin., with one end sharpened to j drive up into the top rail, and the outer end thinned down for nails or screws, or a small bolt and just a small sot. off to briny it. over the centre of the rail. This catch is very simple and very durable. The cue I am describing has been in use well over fifty years. The small piece of chain is iixed with two staples, and is perfect, in action. This catch could be made in iron, but 1 should prefer it in wood. When fixhifjr, allow n littl" innrp room in the hip part of the mor tice in the head <>f the gate, to nl j low of a slight risp in the latch j when pulled back.

CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

CHAPTER Xyill. In. order to connect the visit of Dr. Carpenter to Marchmere with other events . bearing on the result, we must go back in our history a short .time, and.take up the' thread, of that portion of the narrative touching on the life of the false Lord Chester in London. We have already seen the effect of i Mildred Moore's wonderful beauty i upon Sir Peter Stecde. From the I time he made his first call on her, ! with the purpose in view of entreat- | ing her to set Lord Chester free from ; her ensnaring' friendship, there ardso I a tremendous rivalry between these j two gentlemen for' her smiles. If Lord Chester presented the singer with a 1 diamond bracelet, Sir Peter went him ! one better, and gave her something 1 a little' more costly. Sir Peter had sprung at once into her favour l>y j buying for her the covotcd diamond i necklace which had been beyond the ) means of Barnes. It is apparent at , once that Barnes had little chaiice for success in'this 'war of extrava ga...

Gem Photographs Itself. ? J In a very short time the iris i wlill be extremely fashionable among | well-dressed women—all the more from the fact that it is impossible that it should become common. At present the total weight of the gem does not amount to more than one-teii-thousandth part of that of diamonds. Hidden in a rugged mountain of San Diego, California, the passes of which . are guarded by armed men, are the-only known examples of tho now" gom, placed by connois seurs only next after the dia mond, pearl, and emerald in beauty and surpassing all precious stones, contain radium. ■ If exposed to the Ro-itgcn rays )'■>: five minutes, .and the:) laid upon u photographic plate, fchct iris will print itself; An imitation gem would never do this.

As for .Barnes, his emotion hart overcome him completely." His' pale .face was turned towards Bill Jones almost beseechingly. His nerve, which had nqver before failed him, had de serted him in the hour of greatest need. He sat mute and silent, un heeding the command of Bill Jones to tell the story of his rise to great ness. "Well, said Bill .Jones, turning to Mildred, and emitting another of his soul-sickening, guffaws, ''if lie won't tell yon, I'il tell you what I know. Then lie may t.nll the rest.

Sir Daniel explained the method employed. "In the hot weather," he said, "we get showers perhaps every three or four weeks, and as the rains approach the probability is that those showers v. ill become more frequent. There was u gamble whether the rain would fall on a particular day or not. "There was a little tank with a | spout, fixed up on the top of a house in the Hurra Bazaar of Calcutta, which is the big nati\e market-place, and if the rain fell sufficiently for this spout to ruu, it was consider-J ed to have rained, and the man lost] or won his bet accordingly.

Dunmunkle Standard And Murtoa Advertiser. PUBLISHED WEEKLY FRIDAY FEBRUARY 6, 1914. LOCALISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

ffunmimklc jHamlan! i&nb S&ireton jSuTucetiset. PUBLISHED WEEKLY FRIDAY FEBRUARY 6, 1914. LOCALISMS. It was not a large gathering on Monday evening at Murtoa to form a local committee to work in conjunction with that of the Horsham Hospital, but there was plenty of enthusiasm. The absence of ladies, however—who by some oversight had not been invited to the meeting—rendered it difficult to arrange a " plan of campaign," the ordinary collection being considered by some as too commonplace. One sug gestion is that a Murtoa stall shou'd be arranged at the carnival, furnished by Murtoa people, and worked by Murtoa ladies Thorn is no doubt that if the ladies undertook the tas'c, it would re sult in a creditable display for our town and a pecuniary benefit to the carnival. The meeting adjourned till Saturday evening at nino o'clock, at which time ladies are invited to attend, and it is hoped that a good number of the fair sex will grace the occasion with their esteemed prese...

Remarkable Facts about Babies. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

Remarkable Facts about Babies. f "I never knew before 1 hud one," said the professor of physics to lua bachelor assistant, "just how closely our science could ,jbe applied to a baby. I havo been astounded at the following . true, conclusions : "Ab two similar,, jjiodies vary in weight as the cubes of their di mensions, I And that a baby two feet long should weigh just about one-sixteenth of a man five feet high ; also that, as the surfaces of two similar bodies vary as the square of their dimensions, a baby as before would have about one sixth the surface of the man. So the extent of surface proportional to weight in the baby is vastly greater than in the adult; in fact, a square foot of the baby's skin would shield just one-third the. sub stance- of what a square foot would on an adult. "Arguiny from this, and knowing that the rate of cooling' of a solid depends on the extent . of surface, I found tlmt a baby got cold quicker, or warm quicker, when exposed to. a Tire than a man.
