It very often happens that new kid gloves are split the very first time they are tried on. This can he pre vented by placing them between the folds of a damp towel for an hour or so before they are worn. The damp stretches the kid, so that they will stretch to trie required shape , without splitting. Coffee is a fairly good air purifier. A little burnt on hot coals will soon purify a sick-room and abolish bad smells. Many physicianB think high ly of the bracing effects of coffee taken before they visit cases of infec , tious disease. 1946. s

THE RAGING WAR. TRIUMPHANT ALLIES. GERMANS ROUTED. AUSTRIANS DEFEATED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
THE RAGING WAR. TRIUMPHANT ALLIES. GERMANS ROUTED. AU8TRIANS DEFEATED. It is estimated that 3,000,000 soldiers took part during the week in the battle on the Marne, which is described as the bloodiest in history. The Allies succeeded in sweeping the Germans hack to the Belgian frontier with terrible slaughter. The British forces particu larly distinaushed themselves. The Allies are con'inuing to make progress, which means that the Germ ins are nearer the frontier, and further away from their g^l—the French capital. Instead of effecting a glorious withdrawal as a conquering host with the work they set out to accomplish half completed, and le.iving behind the [ opposing armies beaten and crushed, j they are being driven to the frontier wiih their lines broken and their hopes shattered. The time they had allotted for the work of conquering France and then hurrying back to crush the Czar's legions has passed, and the whole task has yet to ba accomplished. One of the most important messa...
Electric Eels. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
Electric Eels. f A correspondent of the " Morning Post," writing of the electric eel, says he recently made the experi ment of touching the young speci men now in the Tortoist House of the Zoo. Although only the tips of the fin gers of one hand came into contact with the fish for a moment, tho shock felt was very sudden, anil powerful enough to be almost pain ful ; it extended up tho arm, an&lt;l was felt most strongly across tho muscles of the upper arm. There can be little c'oubt, con tinues tho writer, that a full shock from a full-grown specimen would be enough to knock a man. down. The grent trnveller Humboldt at the beginning of the last century stated that the natives of Brazil drove horses through swamps where these fishes were, that the horses were thrown off their feet by the shocks, and that when the electric force was thus exhausted the fish could be caught and handled. No later confirmation c*r this as a practico among the natives has been forthcoming, and it ma...
FEDERAL ISSUES. FUTURE OF LIBERALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
FEDERAL ISSUES. FUTURE OF LIBERALISM. The cause of Labor's triumph at the polls is obvious. Up to the day on which Mr. .Hughes declared for a political truce, Liberalism was some thing more than hoding its own. From the day on which Sir William Irvine declared that a truce was impossible, Liberalism steadily fell back. Whether Mr. Hughes was sincere, or whether Sir William Irvine was wise, are matters which the student of political history may consider later; to-d*y the fact which matters is, that Liberalism was defeated nof in a battle waged on any one of its principles, but on aside issue, very important do doubt, but, of quite temporary interest. It may be asked, " If we are beaten, if our enemies are in power, what do js it matter why they won and we lost ? ' The answer is, "It matters everything." If Australia after years of hesitation, of argument in the press and on the plat form, had pronounced for that whole sale nationalisation of industries, which in Australia is loosely ...
Outdoor Fireplace for a Kettle. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
Outdoor Fireplace for a Kettle. When a kettle is used in the open air for heating water, or other pur poses, there is considerable of tho heat wasted, unless a furnace of some kind is built about the fire. The accompanying sketch illustrates a furnace made of aft ordinary drain or sewer tile. The diameter of the tiie must foe of such a size as to let the largest part of the rounding bottom set inside. Dig out a hole in the earth under the tile or break a piece out of the tile to make an opening to feed the fire and for the draught.

LATEST NEWS. It is expected that a desperate battle will take place between the allies and the German forces entrenched along the Aisue. The general opinion is that the war is merely in its initial stages. Both armies are resting. Petrograd estimates that 259,000 Austrians have been killed and wound ed, and 100,000 prisoners taken. Surrender of Austria expected. Japanese are dropping bombs in Kia-Chao,
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. f Kettles may be thoroughly clean sed by boiling a few potato peel ings in them. When cooking apples put a pinch of salt with them. They will al ways be most beautifully tender. Never put parsley into water, where it quickly decays. It will keep much fresher if placed in an air tight tin or canister. To clear- beetles out of cupboards and larders sprinkle :i little ben zine over the boards, and it will kill the eggs ns well as the in sects. To remove i iron rust from linen or cotton goods, boil a small quan tity of rhubarb and -lip in that portion of the material which is spotted. To serve tip cauliflower whole and unbroken boil in a cloth, as it may then be lifted out of the sauce pan without' any detriment to its appearance* The lives of gloves may be pro longed by placing a small piece of cotton-wool in the tip of each fin ger and thumb. This will prevent the nails rubbing them into holes. To clean lamp-glasses hold them | over a jug of boiling water until irt-1...

NO IDLE TEAKS. An amusing story about Dr. Archibald Pitcairne, the physician, .Jncobite, and scholar, is told by Francis Watt in "The Boob of Edinburgh Anecdote." Doctor Pitcaire was not often a ^ churchgoer, but on one occasion he j took refuge in a church from a ; shower of rain. The sermon was j commonplace, but the preacher was emotional, and he wept copiously, and,, as it seemed to Pitcairne, irre levantly . He turned to the only other occupant of the pew, a stolid countryman, and whispered, "What on earth gars the man greet "You would ' maybe greet your iself," was the solemn answer, "if j you was up there and had as little I to say." 1940.
Mighty Intellacts. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
Mighty Intellacts. - ♦——— I have often thought that the sum ming-up of a certain coroner was about as neat as, well, could be, at an inquest where the evidence varied and contradicted itself in an astounding manner. The jury and coroner were equally lost as to which lot of witnesses to believe. However, the head of affairs in that villago inquiry-room put the mat ter tersely, and very neatly. " Gentlemen," said he, "if you believe the evidence given by the first three witnesses, you will find the deceased died by his own hand; if you believe the testinu ny of the last three, you will find it a case of his gun going off accidentally. For nyself, I can't say which I believe, as both may be wrong !" And the intelligent jury in due course brought in a verdict of "'Found shot by somebody or other!" Occasionally one member, at least, of the average coroner's eleven, twelve, or thirteen underlings at the inquest, gets in a good hit at the expense of others. Thus it came about at an inquest...
A Gigantic Aeroplane. " A FLYING VLLLAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
A Gigantic Aeroplane. 4 " A FLYING VLLL.AGE." A flying village—that is the im pression' given to those who see above their heads that amazing bi plane, the Ilia-Kouramctz. For this gigantic machine, the invention o£ a little-known aeronaut, Igor Sikorsky carried sixteen people a few weeks ago in a record-breaking flight of eighteen minutes. It rose to a height of 300 metres—about 900 feet. The. flight started at the Korpusny Aerodrome, in St. Peters burg." . Two days later Sikorsky accom plished a feat which students of aviation consider still more remark able. With eight passengers he steered the Ilia-Kourametz from St. Petersburg to Tsarkoe-Selo through Gatchina arid back to St. Peters burg. * This flight took place 3000 feet above the ground, and lasted two hours and six minutes. This was a triple record- made—for height, for duration^ and for flight with nine people aboard. The length of this epoeJi-making I machine is 62 feet, and its span is .11.4: feet/- When empty, it weighs...
CHAPTER XXVII. THE SHAPING OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
CHAPTER XXVII. THE SHAPING OF EVENTS. When Laurie reached home the bell was ringing for luncheon, and a few minutes later he entered the dining room, expecting to hear some caustic remarks about his tardy appearance, as Sir Leonard Hatton was a great stickler for punctuality ; but to his surprise he found his uncle was not at the table, and Laurie took his seat with a sense of being one hot ter than the master of the house, and waited patiently for his appear ance. At last, when five minutes had pas sed, he turned to the butler, who was hovering about, sajing : "I suppose my uncle is in the house ?" "Yes, sir. The master's been in the library all the morning. It's queer, Mr. Laurie, that he doesn't come. I have lived in this house forty years, man and boy, and I've never known him half a second late for a meal be fore. I've heard him send people away as had come on business, if it was likely to interfere with his lun cheon. He's mighty particular about his digestion, and it's my opi...

In answer to his query, the maid said that Miss Wedmore was at home, and she showed him into the drawing room, then proceeded to the dining room, where Meg was busy mending table linen. • "If you please Miss Meg, Mr. Hat ton wants to see you," said this girl. Meg looked up and her face flush ed quickly. "He's in the drawing room, miss," said the girl, who scented a love af fair. "Very well, Jane, I'll see him." But Meg put the. needle again into the damask, then drew it slowly out and folding the cloth neatly up, she left the room. For a moment she paused with her hand on the handle of the drawing room door, then she entered, and in another moment Lau rie had grasped her hand. "I've ...
NOT TOO OLD AT SIXTY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
NOT TOO OLD AT SIXTY. In these days, when we are fre quently hearing "too old at forty," it is refreshing to kno-.v that there are many'people to whom this say ing does not apply in every walk of life, - and especially is it so in the literary profession. Victor Hugo, one of the greatest writers that France has ever produced, wrote "Lies Miserables," the finest • work of -his life, in exile in 1862, when he was sixty years old. This work, which raised its author at ' once ' to a supreme place in, French literature, •■ was published simultan eously in Paris, Brussels, London, • New York, Madrid, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Turin. The story is a particularly fasci nating one, and possesses historical value, because of the accurate de scriptions it gives of Paris at that period. It is a book of lofty mo rality, and in its hero it gives a splendid example of heroic . self-sac rifice. It is a book, moreover, which strikes one forcibly as hav ing been written' by one who be lieved in huma...
To Fasten a Loose Waggon Tire. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
To Fasten a Loose Wag gon Tire. Tires often come loose in hot lea ther and if the wheels are so old or badly dished that it would not pay to have them reset, -the follow ing method to keep them on may be used to advantage. Drill small holes at the fellow joints and against the tire as shown at A in the sketch. Use an irdn drill if you have, one, as rubbing1 against the tire will not injure it. Put a bolt of ^ proper size and length through the hole with washers on both sides of tire and fasten with a nut. This will hold the tire on the wheel and also make a solid joint if the felloes are loose.
PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE "MAGNIFICENT MARQUIS." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 18 September 1914
PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. ♦ THE "MAGNIFICENT MARQUIS." It was towards the close of May, &lt;864, that the "Magnificent " Mar quis of Hastings won Ms first great race, and his luck held till he had won over £75,000 with his fifty racehorses. But the "fickle jade" turned against him at last. - . During the first year of his success he eloped with Lady Florence Paget, the affianced bride of Mr. Henry Chaplin, who had driven with her intended husband to Swan and Ed gar's to complete her purchases for her wedding, which was to have taken place within a week. In stead, she left by another door, and being joined by the marquis, they were at once married. Mr. Chap lin wanted to "call out" his man ; but this was prevented. His time for revenge came when he won the Derby with Hermit in a snow storm, the horse having started &lt;it 40 to 1. By this race Lord Hast ings lost over £100,000, and so little did the "bookies" expect to see their money back that they sold tlieir rights...

Attacked by Bees. ♦ GALLANT POLICEMEN TO THE RESCUE. I The police and Government bee ex ( perts were called upon to. perform i a novel duty, when they were sum i moned to IT Street, in the most j fashionable district of Washington, [ to rescue a number of lightly-clatl i young ladies from a swarm of , bees. I Where the bees came from has not J been discovered, but they were pre j sent in their hundreds, much to the I discomfort of fair promenaders, I who, on account of the extreme heat, had reduced their wearing ap parel to the flimsiest of summer garments. "Feekaboo" blouses, with generous arm and neck openings, diaphanous skirts and "almost" stockings proved no sort of protection against the stings of the vicious little insects, and screams for help were very soon echoing along the thoroughfare. ToJicemen came to the rescue in the most heroic mamcr, but after most had been badly stung they summon ed the official bee experts from the Department of Agriculture. It was some time befo...

SOME FAMOUS ELOPEMENTS RECALLED. Lord Druinlanrig, the young and handsome heir of the sixth Marquis of Queensberry, and Caroline, the lovely daughter of General - Clay ton, of Morden Park, Surre&lt;-, set out, on May 25, 1840, oft their long ride to the Scottish border. Riding day and night, stopping only for necessary refreshment, a few hours of sleep .and change of horses, they reached Gretna Green, and an hour later Miss Clayton had blos somed into_ Viscountess Drumlanrig and the future Marchioness of Queensberry. They were the days 01 famous elopements.
