The Internal Bath. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

The Internal Bath. Dr. Garey, the French specialist in appendicitis, has asserted that al most all of his appendicitis pa tients were water drinkers, from which he deduces the theory that wine is a safer beverage than water. Commenting on this, another spe cialist, Dr. \V. F. Varcoe, says that on the contrary, free water dr.'n'cers seldom if ever have ap pendicitis. Most o' those afflicted with that disease have not drunk enough water, but too much wine, beer and whisky. The doctor assures us that pure water or diltillcd water well aerat ed, is certainly better than wine, especially the cheap wines of artifi cial manufacture, which are very in jurious to the system. Constipation is the most frequent Cause of ap pendicitis, and one or two glasses of water before retiring and one half hour before breakfast will cure many cases of that torpid condi lion. Water gives an internal bath ; it dilutes the fluids in which the cells of the body are bathed; it increases assimilation, metabolism...

Does the Air Carry Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

Does the Air Carry Disease. "It's in the air" is a phrase that will no longer be considered appli cable to disease. Dr. C. U. Cha pin flouts the idea that the air can convey infection, and' other medical authorities ' support him. Up till recently it was considered that at least malaria and yellow fover eamo by tho nir route to their victims, as did typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and diarr hoea, not to mention typhus fever and plague. The excretions, as well as the breath, were assumed to give off the germs. When the Prince cy Wales in 1871 contracted typhoid fever at " Sandringham, the escape of sewer gas into his apartment was considered by everyone a sufficient explanation. Now, says the 'Lan cet/ conveyance by infectcd water or food is universally held, and the "carrier" has supplied the missing link, in previously inexplicable cases. The • discovery and study of the cas ual microbes has shown that it is by water, food, contact, flies, and carriers that these diseases are spr...

Counting Time in Panama. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

Counting Time in Panama. . A Far back in the interior of an Empire city (Panama) block, I came upon an old negro woman, parch ment-skinned and doddering, living alone in a stoop-shouldered shanty of boxes- and tin cans. "Ah. don't know ol' ah is, mahster," was one of her replies, "but ah born six years befo' de cholera diskivered." "When did you come to Pana ma ?" "Ah don' know, but it a long time ago." "Before the Americans,.' perhaps ?" Oh, long befo' !. De French ain't only jes' begin to dig. Ah's ashamed to say how long ah been here" (just why was not evident, unless she fancied she should long, ago have made her fortune and left). "Is you a American ? Wei!

City Underlaid with Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

City Underlaid with Gold. » The ground on which Philadel phia is built is said to be of the richest goldfields in the world. The only difficulty there is that the field cannot be worked. Nearly the whole city is underlaid with clay to the depth of about 10ft.—an area say, of ten miles square. . A cubic foot of clay, weighing about . 1201b.; taken from a. depth of 14ft., when the cellar of the Twelfth-street market-house was ex cavated, was practically demon strated to contain seven-tenths of a grain of gold, or lib. in 1,224,000. The experiment was repeated with about the same results with clay taken from a brickyard in the su burbs. Supposing the whole mass of clay to be 4.180,000,0001b. (and it is really much greater), the amount of gravel is much richer in gold than j the clay, but there is not so much i of it. ! Undoubtedly £200,000,000 worthy of gold lies within loft, of the sur face, and still it cannot be used. Feeling not in the best of humour but very hungry, he went into a...

PERSONALITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

PERSONALITY IN MILKING. We have taken opportunity at in tervals to direct attention to the in fluence of kindly treatment as ap plied to milking cows, and to the | fact that a better yield will be ob- | tained from the same animal gently j handled, than if knocked about and , worried by dogs or ill-tempered per sons. Experiments recently communi cated to "Hoard's Dairyman" go even further. It would appear that apart alto gether from ilMreatment of any kind j a cow will often respond more freely 1 to one person than to another, the animals apparently having likes and dislikes, such as occur so frequently in human beings. i A heavy producing Holstein. cow, in the dairy herd at the Kansas State Agricultural College, freshened ' early, in December, and was milked ■ by man No. 1. This man had mil'vjd •her for several weeks, when he left for 'a vacation. Man No. 2 took charge of the milking. The cow re sponded to his milking, and gave as much as 81.4 pounds of milk per day. Her highest da...

Typing Musical Scores. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

Typing- Musical Scores. The typewriting of musical scores is now mn.de possible by a machine that has appeared on the French market. The same machine may be used lpr ordinary typewriting in several languages, the letters and numerals, and the musical characters or signs being carried on small drums. The drum for writing music contains eighty-four signs which, singly or in combination, j produce all the characters necessary to write a complete score within a range of six and a half oc taves. The treble or violin clef, for instance, is written by four ope rations, the bass clef in three, etc., even the staff itself being written on the machine. The characters arc not written side by side as usual, but in a ver tical line. The musical characters are all marked on the keys of the machine along with the letters and other signs of the written language, in a different colour. This ar rangement is marie possible by a simple mechanical device connected with the shaft of the roll holding ,th&...

THE POULTRY FARM. THE IMPROVEMENT OF STOCE [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

THE POULTRY FARM. 1 THE IMPROVEMENT OF STOCK As an instance of what may. I done in the way of improving stoc' I may quote the case of a smal holder who took up poultrv-keepir three years ago with a stock • white Wyandottes procured from leading utility breeder. Becoming co vincetl of the possibility of main taining a high standard of egg-pro duction by carefully selecting bird for breeding, he took up this wor with enthusiasm, gained a high pla< | in a laying competition, and foun ' that by advertising in the poultr j journals he could sell eggs for hatt ing- during the spring at 3s. 6d. t( ! 5s. per dozen, whereas by sendin them to market he could only aver ' age Is. per dozen at the same sea j son Though having no more thar> half an acre of ground he has found it possible to keep a stock of abou' thirty laying hens, and breed sixt.i or seventy chickens every year.

Teaches Surgery by Films [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

Teaches Surgery by Films After many vicissitudes, the new use of the cinematograph has been begun by Dr. Doyen by teaching surgery to students by films. Ills films also preserve the records of operations. A few years ago a gold medal at Berlin was awarded him for surgical films. lie is the only owner of a collection of such films and now has more than fifty, shoe ing nearly all the great surgical operations. He advocates this method for students before admitting them to a view of the actual operation, which then becomes much more valuable. lie also makes it a point that such a record of his ac« tual work permits a doctor to cri ticise it and his assistants' posi tions in a way that they could not possibly do otherwise. It is also an infallible record of the correct ness and adequacy . of the methods employed. Dr. Doyen advocates the establishment by this means of a . great museum of surgical art, which ) would assemble films of the great est operators engaged in unique or difficult ...

EGGS FOR HATCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

eggs for hatching. In • sending away eggs for hatching several methods may be adopted. Special boxes made of wood, or good strong cardboard, fitted with com partments, are sold for the purpose, and in such cases the trouble is re duced to a mimimum. A cheaper method, however, is to obtain a chocolate or soap box large enough to hold a dozen eggs, and to wrap each egg carefully in newspaper, finallj wedging the eggs tightly in the box with more paper or hay, in such a way that they can not move. All boxes of eggs for hatching should be sent by passen ger train at parcels rates, fully labelled to denote the contents. If consignments of eggs are sent by train to distant markets they should he packed in wooden compartment boxes, such as can be obtained from any appliance manufacturer. These boxes are returned to the sender, and the percentage of breakages is small.

THE FARM. POTATOES. PROMISING NEW VARIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

THE FARM. ■ » POTATOES. PROMISING NEW VARIETY. All growers are on the look-out for a blight-resistant potato, and though we are somewhat diffident in advan cing the claims of any particular va riety out of the hundreds that make their appearance each season, it ie well to note the reports to hand in recent English agricultural papers in regard to a new variety known as Vitality. This potato has been introduced by Mr. James Richardson, Old Leake, near Boston, and some of the Lin colnshire growers—in which county over 80,000 acres were planted in po tatoes last season—have shown great faith in it. The "Mark Lane Express," reports as follows : It is said that this tuber has done remarkably well, and though not sprayed, has emerged through this season's wretched atmo spheric conditions absolutely free from blight. It was in 1S96 that Mr. Richardson, from an apple o3 one of Kerr's varieties, managed to rear th= Vitality tuber. It is a very big crop per, of good flavour, nice shape, a rou...

Swans Crown Property. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

Swans Crown Property. 1 England is at present the only country in the world' which prac tises with success, and on a large scale, the raising of swans. This privilege is largely due to the fact that the British Isles form an im-1 portant halting stage in the route | taken by the numerous flights of wild swans when they leave the northern shores of Scandinavia for Central Africa. Quite the most important of the swan farms or swanneries in the British Islands is that at Abbots- j bury, near Weymouth, in Dorset- j shire, which dates its foundation from the 18t.h century. The birds are distributed over an immense do main, formerly occupied by an ab bey, comprising marshy meadows and copses. A river, rendered brack ish by the close proximity of the sea, meanders through the grounds. The work of the farm is performed by ten men, whose duty it is to cap ture the swans intended for sale, otherwise the birds are left com pletely alone to wander about and I to disport themselves in the water,...

CALF REARING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

CALF REARING. The Royal Agricultural Society of England has been conducting some experiments on the rearing of calves, and has issued a report of the re sults. These experiments were carried out with several batches of animals, I divided into five groups, and over a period of nine weeks. The different kinds of food were as follows i Cod-liver oil and separated milk ; whole crushed-oats with separated j milk. The whole result of the experi- | incuts may he summed up in one I statement — that the crushed oats ! nnd separated milk gave the best re turns. This is very instructive in deed. and is.. ftU. ic_ favour. of the.iiKp duced on the farm. The present writer has just been informed by one of his neighbours that the best food he has discover ed for the growth of calves after the first month of milk feeding is over, is a mixture of oats and whole beans. The beans are only partly chewed and regurgitated and chewed over again in the ordinary way that the cud is treated, and thus the fun...

Happy Convicts. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914

Happy Convicts. 1 A Siviss prison appears to be the very place in which to spend a cheap holiday, as you have practi cally all you want—a comfortable cell, central heating, electricity, good food, a fair quantity of wine . or beer and tobacco, and a library. You can learn a trade, have plenty of exercise, and there is little work to do . in return for all these ad vantages. Until a year ago, at j the Thorberg Prison, good-conduct j prisoners were even allowed out j once a week on "parole," but,1 though no prisoners escaped, this custom has been suppressed. Of all the Swiss prisons perhaps the jollicst is that of Krouzlingen. in the Canton of Thurgau. The.in mates have weekly smoking con certs, when the latest music-hall songs can be heard, and good music, with the result that at even ings the townspeople—ICrctizlingcn has nearly 6,000 inhabitants—gather enviously under the prison walls and promenade in the street enjoy ing the free entertainment, espe cially as some c<l t...
