j CORRESPONDENCE. We Ho not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents in thi.i column, nor will we in any way hold ourselves responsible for same.] TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I desire to supply you with a few lines re the Murtoa Boys who are part of the Expeditionary Force going to the continent. The camp conditions are very perfect, almost to detail. The force is short of horses, but will be complete in about a week. I saw Messrs A. Fairfax and R. Jack who look the picture of health, and are cheerful. I understand the various dis tricts from which volunteers have come have had royal send-offs, but that Murioaites (who by a public meeting expressed their loyalty and devotion to the British Empire) as yet have not entertained their representatives. How about a horse each to the two lads of the Light Horse ? This would be a most acceptable gift, and needs only to be mentioned to be put into execution. The sooner the better. Mementoes have been shown to me by the differ...

GOOD MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

GOOD MORNING. A sunbeam touched my little bed. J "Good morning-, dear," he gently J said. I opened wide my sleepy eyes, And said, "Good morning," with| surprise; "I cannot think that night is gone, And are you sure thatithis is morn?" The sunbeam laughed and shook his head. "Last night you "wduld not go to i bed, . Arid that is why you sleep so late, - And make me c.limb the wintlowi gate | To say, u Wake up,, you sleepy dear ! Wake up—God bless you ! Morning's here !" Little sorrows, while they last, may be as hard to bear as great ones; happily, they do not last so long.—Filacm Young.

Coloured Sweat. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

Coloured Sweat. In connection with the cable mes sage that a woman at Vienna has been imprisoned for obtaining money from pilgrims and sightseers by showing them the phenomenon of blood flowing irom a wound in her side, and perspiring from her skin, it is interesting to note that the ! sweating of blood is an occurrence not unknown to science under the i nanifl of hacmidrosis. It is ex | tremely rare, however. One or two authentic cases have I been recorded where the sweat has been stained blue, and it is said that green sweat is occasionally seek in those who work in the manufacture of copper salts. Col oured sweating is known as -chromi drosis. The condition occurs nearly always in females, and is usually as sociated with, marked neurotic symptoms. Cases similar to the Vienna one are said to havo occurred during the middle ages. The theory has been advanced that by concentrating the mind on the subject, a replica of the wounds of Christ may be produced, such as were reported to ha...

A Handsaw Depth Gauge. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

A Handsaw Depth Gauge. 1 ' When sawing notches for joints, it becomes necessary to have some kind of a gauge to stop the cut ting at the proper depth. Gauge saws can be purchased, but. the ! small amount of use required for them will not warrant the keeping of the extra saw. The illustration shows a clamp gauge for use on any saw. In Fig. 1 is shown the construction of each clamp, and in Fig. 2 the assembled parts on the saw blade. The two gauge bars are fastened to the lower ends of the clanjns . .with glue. When _ this it is held in place by driving two wedges in the, top ends of the clamps.

Incorrigible. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

Incorrigible. f j The late Edmund Garrett-, a bril i liaut journalist and one-time edito J of the "Pall Mall Gazette," was a man whom other men loved. But ' along with his virtues he had an' | extensive list of ^peculiarities, some of which are humorously exploited by his biographer. Garrett had no idea of time and he used to get into some trouble at the "Pall Mall" for that reason. "This must stop," he said, " and matters must be mended." A day or two afterwards an invi tation came from the proprietor to dinner. Edmund said that at any rate there must be no missing this entertainment and his punctual at tendance thereat, and a good deal of fuss was made in getting ready for it. ' Shirts were looked out, white ties and dress-clothes were overhauled, and all the resources of our es-j tablishment brought into requisition so that the appearance of the guest would do justice to the host.. Din ner was at eightand long before that hour .Edmund was arrayed in spotless raiment, starting out...

How to keep Healthy. HINTS FROM CELEBRITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

How to keep Healthy. — T HINTS FROM CELEBRITIES. Miss Marie Studbolme is a firm believer in practising ju-jit9u, the | Japaneso form of self-defence and wrestling-, for a few minutes daily. "Contrary to the general opinion, the life of an actress," she writes, "is very far removed indeed from a sinecure. . . In fact, it is only by tuking the most rigid care of her self from a health point of view that she can possibly successfully fulfil all her engagements from year to year. Thus, as, these days, her time is so fully occupied during the day, the question as to which is the best exercise to tal:e in one's leisure moments to keep one's self "fit and well" becomes an nil-im portant one. "Exercise, I may say, experience lias taught me during my career cm the stage, is absolutely necessary, and, after trying all sorts and kinds, I have come to the conclu sion that ju-jitsu, the Japanese form of self-defence, is the "best possi ble" in its health-giving properties. And the greatest of al...

WHAT TIME "D" MEANT. Mrs. Giles came up to London on a visit and, passing through a suburban street, noticed a card with a big "D" upon it placed in the window of a villa. Curious to know what it meant, she accosted a bystander, who hap pened to be the local wag, and asked him 'what the card was for.

Do Men Exhaust their Originality at Sixty. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

Do Men Exhaust their Originality at Sixty. ——4 Ehrlich and von Kehring have reached that age, and from all over the world congratulations have poured in upon them. The great demonstration seems tinged with a sad note as though these men had reached the end of their productive life. They will work on the old lines until they die, and we hope the final end will be many, many years off, but will th§ product be worth while ? We hope it will be great, but can^ a brain or body of sixty, cut out new trails in the wilderness of ignorance ? Osier showed how rarely it is done, and many thought that he said that men over sixty could not do anything at all. A great work may not be culminated until long after that age, but great discoveries are made by boys. A »rew even believed chat he said that men over sixty ought to i be chloroformed, though he himself ! was nearly sixty at the time. Some' of his critics were too old to j I understand what he said. The j French have recently discovered that ...

A Tortoise's Long Life. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

A Tortoise's Long Life. f— Proverbially slow in every way, the tortoise is perhaps the slowest of all animals to die. Stories about toads found living in closed pockets of the solid rock may be discounted; but that tortoises live to be 200 or 300 years old is be lieved. Tn the hall of the Episco pal Palace of Peterborough there is preserved under glass the shell of a large tortoise. Records prove that it sojourned at Peterborough in the Lime of seven bishops: John Tho mas, 1747-57 ; Richard Terrick, 1757 ; Robert Lnmb, 1764 ; John Hinchclifle, 1769; Spencer Madan, 1794; .John Parsons, 1813; Herbert Marsh, 3819-39. Beside the shell lies the descrip tion, which says : "It is well as certained that this tortoise must have lived 220 years. Bishop Par sons had remembered it for more Uinn sixty years. and had not re It ate all kinds of fruit, and often a pint a I gooseberries at a time ; but it made the greatest havoc among strawberries. It knew the gardeners well, and would always keep n...

Wild Cattle of Chartlet. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

Wild Cattle of Chartlet. 1 j The herd of wild cattle which be-1 longs to the Earl of Ferrers is said to be of an even purer breed than that of Chillinghain. The theory that the breed is indigenous appears to bo supported by their habits at the present day. When alarmed, they start off at full gal lop for a short distance, then turn j and face their foe in a semi-circle, I with the bulls in front, the cows be hind, and the younger animals and calves still further in the rear. If further approached, these tactics, which are clearly those of wild animals, are repeated, or the ad versary is charged . and attacked. The food of the Chnrtley herd con sists of the very coarsest grasses, and in winter of the coarsest hay, rushes, and dried bracken, provided for them in open sheds, which af ford a slight shelter from the cold winds which blow across the open park. The home of these cattle is situa ted on high ground which was en closed about the year 1200, and forms a portion of Chartley Pork...
