Lost in Windsor Castle. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

Lost in Windsor Castle. Mr. J. C. Millar, the celebrated 1 ortrait-painter, used to tell how he went by command to Windsor Castle for1 a few days, to paint the picture of a certain Queen whilst she was living there. One morning he arrived earlier than usual, had luncheon in good time, all by him self, and then got the Queen in question to sit for an hour to him. Having thus made fair pro gress with his picture, he resolved to take a stroll in the park for a little while as a change, and ac ! cordingly started to find his way o t. But, unfortunately, he got lost ! He went up one corridor after an other in vain, hut he could not meet any servant who might he questioned effectively for his pur pose. Finally, at the end of a long passage, he came to a door which seemed as if it must surely lead into the courtyard. So he opened it and went on. Hut what was his surprise and chagrin when he found himself in a room where | sat the very Queen he had been painting, with her maid placing a clo...

How I was Saved. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

How I was Saved. 1 (By One of the Sur\'ivors of the Empress of Ireland.) Mr. C. U. Clark, the sales man.a- I ger for one of the best-known motor i tax firms in London, wns one of the few survivors from the wreck of the j ill-fated Empress of .Ireland. In (he , following article he graphically tells j the story of the awful sensations he experienced when the vessel sank and he was dragged into the whirl- | pool of wreckage and bodies, being j ultimately saved by the merest chance :— j AN AWFUL AWAKENING. About 2 o'clock I was awakened by the sound of the Empress' siren blowing, and almost immediately afterwards I distinctly heard two answering notes from another ship, which evidently was the Storstad. I got out of bed and looked out of the window to see if it was foggy, but found that there was only a slight mist on the water, and so got back to bed again. Two or three minutes afterwards I felt a bump, but it. did not seem j very severe, and I did not then get | out of my bunk. A few...

AUSTRALIA AND ADVERSITY. SHARING THE SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

AUSTRALIA AND ADVERSITY. SHARING THE SACRIFICE. Possibly robust folk who march through life making light of difficulties may object to the suggestion that Aus tralia is facing adversity. As compared with the lot of the Belgians, or of the (oik on whose territory Russian and Austrian armies are battling, ours is a joyous one. No foreign troops march through our streets, take possession of our homes, trample our fields; we do not wake in the night, startled by an unaccustomed sound, and leap to our feet fearful that it may be the noise of distant guns. None the less there is much unemployment, far more half em ployment, general cutting down of pro fits and widespread failure of crops. A very big percentage of Australians will have to forego every luxury, to dispense with many comforts which use has made well nigh necessary, and not a few will actually stint themselves rather than admit industrinl defeat.. Happily all parties are eager to make the suffering which war and drought in vol...

The German Way. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

The German Way. J It is an "astonishing fact that a blind man may drive a motor-car in the United Kingdom. Anyone who has a driviAg licence, which can be obtained on I the payment of 5s. without any /test of qualifica tion, is entitled to drive a car whe ther he is able to do so or not. The German method is in strong contrast to that of Britain. If a German wishes to drive a motor car he must first take out a one month's tuition licence, which per mits him to learn to drive. At the end of the month he is taken 1 into the heart of a large city, and with an official at his side is made to drive in and out of the traffic. One little slip, a slight hesitation in slowing up, and back he is put for another month of tuition. There are many cases in which even three months' tuition is insisted on, and there are others in which licenses are refused altogether. The result of this is that the accident per-1 centage in Berlin is only half that of London. —"Manchester Evening News."

A Wind-made Mountain. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

A Wind-made Mountain. 1 Earthquakes and volcanoes some times in a few secondB work havoc with the topography of a country, but the wind works more slowly in making changes on the face of the earth. It has been on one job at Cape Henry, Va., for unknown centuries, and while it has accom plished much, it does not seem to consider its work there completed, and promises to sticki to it for hun dreds of years longer, unless it chan ges its favourite routes of travel or the ocean currents theirs, or the hand of man intervenes. The work the wind has been doing at Cape Henry and of which it never tires, from the beach, perhaps a hundredth Part of an inch a day, a small mountain of sand. As the prevail ing winds at the Cape are north east, south-westward lies the course of this sand mountain. In its path is a dense forest .of sypress, pine, and beach ./treesj -sheltering a jungle of undergrowth, in which make their home little black bears, an occa sional deer, foxes, raccoons,, in numerable ...
