HE MEANT WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

HE MEAKT WELL. A countryman who was puffing away at'1 a short clap pipe appeared to be considerably astonished when he came across a gentleman in oil I skins lying in the muddy road un | derneath his motor-car.. He stop | ped some time, then a pitying look crept into his eyes. "Hi he shouted. "I can fix you up, guv'nor !" "What on earth do you mean ?" asked the angry motorist, as he wriggled from under the car. "Mean that you can get a light from my pipe," was the answer. "Weren't you under there to get out of the wind ' Any tub can be made into a washing machine by an inventor's lid to be clamped upon it, carry ing beneath it blades driven by a water-motor mounted on top.

" T T T. " i NEW WIRELESS DANGER SIG NAL FOB OCEAN LINERS. A new wireless danger signal has been invented by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, the decisions of which have been embodied in a bill presented to the British Parliament by Mr. John Burns. The signal takes the form "T T T " repeater! ten times at full strength, and is a message of warn ing to ships that thero are dan gers in their path, such as icebergs, derelicts, cyclones, typhoons, or sud den changes in landmarks. The hill provides that ships ob serving anything dangerous to navi gation shall at once report it. The report is to be transmitted to cer tain powerful • wireless stations, from which the danger signal will be sent out.

Home-made Paint Brush. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

Home-made Paint Brush. 1 "Necessity is the mother of inven tion," so when I wanted a paint hruah and could not find one at hand, I proceeded to make one and was surprised at the good results ob tained. I wound some binder twine in a coil about my hand as shown in the sketch. After removing the coil from my hand I wound more twine tightly around onj-half of the coil, thus forming a handle for the brush and leaving the other halt Brush Made from Ropo Fiber for 'the brush part. I then cut the • brush encl oft square and combed out all the loose ends and the brush was comploto. This brush was excellent for rough work and did fine work with surprising ly good results. The length of the handle part and the length and breadth of the brush can be modi fied to suit the purpose for which it is intended.

Beloved Ugliness. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

Beloved Ugliness. For somo years now there has existed, in different forms, a love of ugliness—or so it appears. Take the Futurists, for instance, the Cubists, Post-Impressionists, and other "ists," that have lately burst upon an astonished world. Their work, if judged by the standards of a few years ago, could not pos sibly be called beautiful ; and yet it is almost worshipped by a grow ing number of people. Even children have developed a love of monstrosities in the shape of toys. One sees a child of to-day fondling some hideous toy freak with all the love imaginable. The same child would probably turn in disgust from the homely old rag doll. Why is it ? Mr. Crane, the famous artist, says it is because "children, like their el ders, like change.-' At present, they ; have taken a fancy for ugly toys, | or, at any rate, are not frightened j of them. Cut he also thinks that children are still fond of the old picture-books of the 'seventies. After all, we ' are all children—of differe...

The Dying Seaforth. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

The Dying Seaforth. Long years ago I made a vow I'<3 . train and go to war, Where'er my country wanted me, whe ther near or far ; A soldier's life I cherished, and I loved the drum and file, I So I joined the gallant Seaforths, | and served them all my life. ) You know I was quite healthy Bill, when serving in that corps, My cheeks were like a cherry red, of health I had a store; And in the cold Crimean trench, with footprints in the snow, I've beard the shrill blast sounded with measured beat and slow. And through Lthe stirring Mutiny my regiment suffered great ; You know those dusky fellows there would skulking, on you wait And cut you down so quickly, they would rarely nlav the game : Thank God, I've been protected to share my regiment's fame. But these things undermined men, somo gallant fellows, too. Much stronger men than T, Bill, yet safely I got through.

No More Bald Heads. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

No More Bald Heads. T A method of sewing hairs in the human scalp in cases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szekely at tho hospital of Saint Stcphane at Budapest, and a report appears in the "Times." The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient has been as many as 50,000. One hundred hairs are drawn through punc- | tures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends are left free, the number is thus 200, or over 1,000 to each square inch. Very fine gold wires arc used, one five-hundredth of an inch in diame ter, and fine long hairs from a woman's head are attached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts cs an "anchor," and after sterilization is introduced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced into the scalp within three-quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely has designed a spe cial instrume...

Oldest Museum in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

Oldest Museum in the World. f Dr. Otto Kummel, head of the East Asiatic Department of the Berlin Museum of Ethnology, tells of the oldest museum in the world, 'in the bulletin of tho. Societe Franco- Japonaise. This museum will be found in the city of Nai'a, the former' capital of Japan. Since its foundation, in 756, it . went through all the chan ges of the Japanese Empire, with lection. Dr. Otio Kununel is one of the few Europeans who were permitted lo visit this museum. It opens- its doors but once a year, on a day in spring-, when a special comiuit tfee inspects the collection, and a new list is made out. The museum contains about 3000 articles, which are said to be the most beautiful specimens of decora tive work which have ever been produced by human hand ; such as lacquer ware, decorative furniture, enamel ware, cambric-like fabric, etc. The origin of the majority of the articles is uncertain ; somo came from China and others from Korea; but most of them appear to be of a mor...

Skyscraper Made of Glass. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

Skyscraper Made of Glass. * The-latest Vender in New York is a sealed skyscraper which, when completed, will be 78 per cent, glass, yet in the building there will | be no windows that may be open ed. The entire twelve storeys will he tight ns a drum, the glass walls being net in steel framework. There will be plenty of ventilation, how ever, and abundance of fresh air the year round supplied at an even temperature by a new ventilating system. In cold weather the fresh atmos phere sucked in from without will be heated ; when the summer comes it will be cooled. At all seasons of the year it will be free from di- J sease-breeding germs, being care fully purified. The ventilating system is unique in its thoroughness. Air is sucked in through a special duct on the second floor, because air at this | altitude has been found to be less impure than at greater heights. The air passes through "shower" cham bers, where the impurities are wash ed out of it after the manner of a rain-shower. At ...

THE MALLEE. ASSISTANCE TO FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

THE NIALIEE, ASSISTANCE TO FARMERS. The present serious condition of Vic toria's wheat areas has led to a great deal of prominence being given to the plight of the settlers in the Mallee (according to a writer in the Argus). While a very large portion of the State ts suffering acutely from the want of rain, the Mallee as been particulary hard hit. Such is the widespread loss and distress that the State Ministry has decided to at once put into into operation a relief policy which will help to tide the farmers over their present troubles. The out I look has occasioned deep anxiety, and work to be at once taken in hand will be directed not only towards the immediate relief of the settlers, but towards the future rapid development of an important wheat-growing area. During the last 12 years, the Mallee has lived down the prejudice that attached to wheat areas subject to light rainfalls. It has emphatically answered in the affirmative the question that was seriously asked some years ago,...

Use for Smoke Rings. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

Use for Smoke Rings. ♦ - The distance from which an aver age man can blow out a candle rarely exceeds three feet. If he is an adept at blowing smoke rings, however, a candle may be extin guished at twelve feet. Of course, the smoke isn't necessary. An or dinary air ring will do, and has the added advantage of being invis ible. Simply pucker the mouth as you would to blow a smoke ring ' and expel air in a quick, sharp manner. It takes a good deal of practice to do it. i An easier way to show the effect, j if one is doubtful, is to place a sheet j of cloth or canvas over the open ( side of a box otherwise closed, i making a small, round hole in an j other side. Then tap in a sharp manner on the canvas, and invisible air rings will be produced. If the hole is pointed at a person's face [ feel them as they strike his face. | Only a few trials are necessary to ' extinguish a candle at twelve feet. | To render the rings visible, a j smudge may be burned in the box, I or a small dish of am...

It is strange that South Africa has taken so small an. interest in ■; an amazing controversy which has ,' separated the zoologists of the Con tinent into two hostile camps, in one of which, stranger still, the Je suit Father Wasmann and his arch opponent, the Agnostic, August Forel, are fighting side by side.
