Gun-Running Profits. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

Gun-Running Profits. * A few .years ttgo Pr. A. Berger, an Oriental traveller, stated that gun-running has been pursued with success for some time past in Egypt. He had been assured en good authority that in the event of an insurrection the Egyptian natives would he found well armed with J modern weapons, there being over 10,000 repenting rilles, with am I munition, buried in a certain neigh bourhood. He declared that ships i laden with arms were able to defy I our cruisers by afiirming that the ' cargoes were destined for Abyssinia, t In India a considerable gun-run ning business has been carried on for years, and in 1910 it was discover ed at the Monghyr Railway Rta- | tion that what was supposed to be j a parcel of walking-sticks was in reality a consignment of arms. By an ingenious contrivance the barrel of the gun was concealed in a stick, on the same principle as sword sticks, and, as Monghyr is known throughout Bengal for its walking sticks, large consignments had been J inno...

"THE DAY." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

"THE DAY." This poem, by Henry Chappell, who is employed at the Bath railway sta tion, created quite a furore in Eng land :— You boasted the Day, and you toasted the. Day, And now the Day has come. Blasphemor, braggart, and coward all, Little you reck of the numbing ball, The blasting shell or the " white arm's " fall, As they spued poor humans home. You spied for the Day, you lied for the And woke the day's red spleen, Monster, who asked God's aid Divine, Then strewed His seas with the ijhnstly mini; : Not all the waters of the Rhine Ciui wash thy foul hands clean. You dreamed for the Day, you schomod for the Day ; Watch how the Day will go. Slayer of age and youth and prime (Defenceless slain for never a crime), Thou art steeped in blood as a hog in slirae, False friend and cowardly foe. You have sown for the Day, you have grown for the Day ; Yours is the harvest of red, Can you hear the groans and the awful cries ? Can you see the heap of slain that lies, And sightless turne I to...

A FORTUNE IN HOLSTEINS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

A FORTUNE IN HOLSTEINS. I ' A few years ago, T. W. Sprague, of Battle Craek, Mich., decided to in vest in a herd of registered Holst^in Friesian cattle. With this end in view he went to New York and pur chased a yearling bull for £120, and ten young cows, yearling hei'ers, and heifer calves. A 5 car later he purchased four more y.oung cows and heifers of good breeding, making a foundation herd of 14 females and the t yearling herd bull. I The 15 head cost Mr.' Sprag-ue just a little less than £800. T. W. Sprague I soon became well known among Mi ' chigan Holstein breeders and his Wolverine stock farm, with well-kept herd of Holsteins, was often visited by buyers looking for high-class cat tle. During, the past three years Mr. ! Sprague has sold over £600 worth of females and yo"ng bulls which paid I over 20 per cent, interest on the £800 investment. | Owinc; to the failing health of Mrs. Sprague, Mr. Sprague was forced to sell out his stock farm and the Wol verine Holstein V":l, and...

THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. For several weeks Cheddar cheesc is practically tasteless ; at two mojKths it is beginning to develop its nutty flavour, and a month later this is distinct enough to meet the tastes of many consumers. The ren net, however, having had a better chance than would be possible with higher p. ."portions of retained whey, the cheese is proportionally mora digestible ; and, so far as the con sumer's advantage is concerned, he may use it then without either the effects of indigestibilitj on the one hand, or of pungency of flavour on the other. For tho?e who desire a stronger flavour, it will have to be kept two months more or upwards ; and if made on correct lines and as perfectly as it may be from sound i milk, it will be at its best from I eighteen months to two years old. If such long keeping is sought, it should be stored, after four months' age, in a temperature never exceed ing G2 deg. Fahr. nor fallinc; oelow 55 deg. Fahr., with the humidity of the ...

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. A HERO OF EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. f A HERO OF EXPLORATION. Among the many men who have faced death to extend the bounds of Empire and human knowledge not one carried a stouter heart on a more perilous adventure than Dr. Kane when one May day in 1853 he turned his face to. the Arctic wastes in search of the lost Sir John Franklin. The ship that carried him was but a tiny craft of 144 tons, with a crew of eighteen men all told ; but she had a well-tried "heart of oak," and every man on board her proved himself a hero, as the fol lowing story—one of the most amazing in the history of adven ture—will prove. Probably no man was ever less equipped physically for the role of explorer than Elisha Kjme. Small and frail and racked by chronic rheumatism, he seemed much more fitted for an invalid's couch than for facing such hardships and perils as must fall to the lot of the man who adventures into the unknown. Hut his heart was as brave as his body was frail ; and already he had shown a grit and an indomit...

(ALL BIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN •OF THE CZAR, ® O R, - THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. ■—{, dy St. George Rathborne, Author ol "Omar Kassam," etc. CHAPTER I. THE TRAVELLER ill THE TALEGA A novice might not have found much pleasure about the long jour ney in a Russian telega drawn by two horses under the control of a daring Don Cossack driver—a journey i:iat had carried Owen Dugdale, a journalist, artist, and idler, over the vast steppes, with their feathery , grasses, and now brought him amid the wild gorges of the southern moun tain border of the White Czar's vast dominions. Dugdale had enough Irish blood in his veins to love more or less ex citement, and. his main purpose in • visiting this domain, upon which a subject of the good Queen had sel dom set eyes, was to discover new objects of interest for his brush and pen, as well as to amuse himself. A man with plenty of money and an artistic taste is very apt to grow weary of such ordinary things as lie | in the beaten track ; and acco...

FLASH ROADS FOR MOTORS. MAJOR LAZARUS OBJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

FLASH ROADS FOR MOTORS. MAJOR LAZARUS OBJECTS. The operations of the Country Roads Board, and the power the Board li s under the Act, were strongly criticised by the engineer of the Bun^aree Shire ' Council ( Vlr. J. S Lizarus) in a report presented to the council on Mondiy. Mr Lazarus, on behalf of the councd, attended a m-e'ing of municipal repre t sematives in Melbourne during Show week to consider the operations of the Board, and "it appears," he said in hi& report, " that the Board is constructing: virtually highways throughout the State on the same principle on which they would construct city streets, and that enormous sums are being spent on this; work, for which the municipalities will be called upon to- pay one-half. The Board has unlimited means at its dis posal, and is spending the money ir> royal fashion, and then instituting some unflattering compmisons between the way they do it and the w;iy shire coun cils do it.

CHAPTER III. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

. CHAPTER III. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. Dugdale had not changed his mind an iota. A dozen things—the exqui site white hands . on which valuable rings glowed, the delicate features, the style of her whole attire—these and other evidences told him plainly this, strange beauty belonged to the select upper circle oE Russia, even that which is very near to the throne itself. The mystery of it all piqued him. He felt somehow as though he had a personal interest in her matters— that her enemies were also his foes ; in fact, that she was being shame fully treated by the powers that were in control of such affairs as banish ment. This was pretty quick work, and almost took his breath away when he came to reflect upon its nature. He had prayed for a chance to feel himself aroused from the "doldrums" and behold, the opportunity had ap peared with a vengeance. Here he was bowling along the mountain road, heading for the next"Village or town, and seated beside the most fascina ting woman he had ev...

CHAPTER II. DUGDALE FORGETS THE BLUES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

GHAFTBR II. DUGDALB FORGETS THE BLUBS. Of course, the wise reader has anti cipated just this thing, but Dugdale had not been granted the same privi lege and hints, so that ho was fairly .staggered. It breathed of romance on the spot —and he had just been seriously con sidering the, wisdom of deserting the army of bachelors, too. He had seen some pretty faces in bis day, this young-old disciple of single blessedness, but never one that had struck him as quite so arch and charming as the countenance upon which ha now gazed so like a boor. And somehow he imagined he saw what might be a frown give way to a look of genuine pleasure. She ap peared pleased to 2nd that the tram pling horses had brought him to the "scene and not others—perhaps the mounted soldiers who waited there on the hillside above. Dugdale pulled himself together. He made no pretence of being a ladies' man, though always at home in society. "Pardon me, madam, you are in trouble. My surprise mad# me rude. Allow mo to ass...

HORSHAM SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

HORSHAM SHOW. The above show proved a success on Thursday and Friday in spite of the prevailing drought. The sheep judging was the principal attraction the first day, and it will be seen by the prize-list that Murtoa breeders distinguished themselves—especially Messrs. Tobin, M'Chntock, and Hateley. Our Light- i Horse troops also did well in the mili tary events. The Rescue Race was an event that cieated any amount of in terest, and the honors went to the Mur toa troop, the representatives being Lanee-Corporal Delahunty and Private Cram, while the Minyip troop, Privates Boyd and Beeton, were a good second. There was a fine attendance on Fri day when the equine events were de cided. The horses were ail in good condition, in spite of the dry season, and there was a good display in all classes.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 October 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. If anything on which paraffin has been spilled—hands included—is rub bed with raw potato, the smell will immediately disappear. New potatoes should be placed in boiling water to which salt, and a little milk have been added. The milk prevents- 'them from turning black. The popular cabbage is useful for drawing and cleansing a gathered finger or poisoned hand. Take a cabbage leaf, roil it out wjfh a bottle until the juice comes, and tie it on the affected pa"t. Salt will remove black beetles. Put plenty of salt where the beetles frequent, and 'keep it there for a week. Do not leave any water where the insects go. When they eat the salt it will dry up their bodies. To remove the smell of fish or cabbage from a saucepan, burn a piece 'of brown paper on the fire and turn the saucepan down over the burning paper. This will re move all odour, whatever it is, in a few seconds. A reinforced-concrete building, 200 feet high, containing a spiral drive way for automobiles to ...

Furnace and Microscope in One. INVESTIGATES MOLTEN METALS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

I - Furnace and Microscope in One. INVESTIGATES MOLTEN METALS. One of the most interesting micro scopes ever invented and the only one of its kind in the world has just been perfected by Dr. Wright of the Carnegie Institute. It is an electrical furnace and microscope 1 combined and was built in the nia ! chine shops of the laboratory. ! The object for which it is intend ed is the examination of metals and ! rocks at an intense heat, in a con dition similar to that which existed at the time of their formation by Mother Nature in the earth. In order to study the behaviour | of metals and stones in a molten ' state it was necessary to subject i them to a heat which would molt, j almost any substance and ruin the j microscope itself. Hence a plan } was devised by 13r. Wright which allows an inconceivable heat to he used, but the machine, other than the oven itself, is kept cool and no high temperature interferes with the microscope. This is done by hav ing a metal hollow jacket, through...

Dissipating Fog by Wireless. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

Dissipating Fog by Wireless. The North Railroad Company in Franco is making experiments on the use of wireless waves for clear ing away fog. It is well known that electric waves act upon the water particles which make up fog, so as to dissolve them and turn them into vapour. Following this idea, it is claimed that as much as 600 feet can be cleared up in front of the electric wires which are sending out the waves, the fcg being ' at least partially dissipated, and this will have a great value in practice, especially for railroads and vessels at sea. The latter will have time to avoid each other in this. But experiments have shown that a small piece of picture wire across the terminals oi one of tho small two-volt batteries, immedia tely becomes red-hot, and easily lights a cigarette. Even if the battery box is locked and the safety terminals applied, it has been shown that two pins stuck through the cable which connects the accumu lator to the lamp will afford such contacts for the ...

Ladie's Column. KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

Ladie's Column. r KITCHEN WRINKLES. A bag of salt standing where there is a smell of fish will absorb the aroma. Raw potato-juice is a valuable cleanser. It will femove stains from the hands and also from woollen fabrics. When making soups or stews, if there is too much flavour of ono particular vegetable, a sprig of par sley added will equalise the fla vouring. A»'ter washing lamp-chimneys, try polishing them with dry salt. This gives the glass a brilliant shine' and prevents it from cracking. To ease a corn which is often painful from long standing, touch it with a little oil of peppermint, and the soreness will be wonderfully lessened. Starched material, even though it keeps clean longest, should be avoid ed during warm weather. The starch prevents a free currcnt of nir passing through. Used in water as a daily gargle, borax keeps the throat healthy. Used in water for cleansing the teeth it "disinfects" them and pre vents their decaying.
