New Weapons of Warfare. ? DISTANT FIGHTING MADE EASY The latest triumphs of the fam ous Krupp factory in Geimany is an illuminating bomb which will ro veal the precise position of tho one my, and (hat without tin: least risk to the observer. Tho enemy may be five or (.-von ten miles nwny when the ollicen; decide that- they should know more about the arrangement, of tho forces nnd how the enemy is encamped. An order goes out to the captain of artillery to get rendy an illuminat ing bonab. lie loads the cannon with the bomb after getting the precise . position of the opposing forces, but he does not try to de stroy anything in their camp. The cannon is aimed up in the air in such a way that tho bomb drops just above the camp. As the cannon is fired it looks as if an ordinary shell were being sent out, but such is far from being the case. It is a shell, but a very unusual one. When this s'ncll reaches a point over the enemy it begins to drop, and the very ac tion of dropping opens a sm...

The New Piracy. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

r | The New Piracy. The old-fashioned pirate captain, with a brace of pistols tucked under his belt, and a coloured handker chief tied round his head, who buried his treasure, and made his cap tives walk the plank, must retire into the background nowadays before the pirate with modern ideas and au aptitude for commercial enter prise, says the "Sketch." A pirate captain flourishes at the present time in the Ued Sea, who commands a large dho>v. He cap tures other dhows currying mer chandise, stores the captured gcods somewhere out of the reach of Tur kish sailors or soldiers, and then enters into negotiations with the merchants to whom the goods were consigned, offering to sell them their, own goods at n very reduced price. This modern pirate has just made a fine haul, haviug captured a cargo worth twenty thousand rupees which was consigned to' merchants at Aden. He unloaded this, set tho captured dhow free, and at once wrote to the merchants at Aden notifying the sums for which th...

Presently the child awoke, and soon began to crawl towards the edge of the blanket. But when it had gone a foot or two the ele phant, stretching out his trunk, gently pulled it buck...

ROBIN HOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

, TtOBIN HOOD. There has never been an outlaw round whoso name such romaiicc has hung as "Kobin Hood" of the Middle Agos. Even" liis exisieuce has been doubted ; but,it is now fair ly certain that such a person did exists and that he gathered round him a band of "merry men." These - outlaws haunted SlTerwood Forest, near-Nottingham; and the identity of - the leader has never been'ascertain ed for certain. Some have thought he was the last of the great Saxons who held out against the Xonnar.s when these conquered the kingdom, others that he was the outlawed Karl of Leicester, who led a revolt in the roign o£ ISdward 11.; others that he was the leader of those gvho were scattered after the death ,of Simon do Montl'ort. It seems certain, however, that he was the "Robyn Hode" who was pardoned by King Edward 11., who gave him a pension on condition that he gave up his lawless life and remained at Court. Hut tir ing of this quiet, after his previous career, lie left the Court, and sum mon...

THE GORDONS AT DARQAI. The conduct of the Gordons at Pargai on October 20, 18Q7, wor thily upheld the best traditions of the British Army. With them were five pipers, named, respectively Find later, Milne, Fraser, Wills, and Kidd. Thoy were ordered to sit down while the batteries -engaged in : a heavy cannonade. Colonel Ma thias's next order was, "Pipers to the front." Milne was the first to step forward, but had oiily gone ft short distance when he was shot, though not fatally wounded. Findlater was the next to "go down. Kidd, rushing forward, tripped over a stone, and in the fall lost his •'■■pipes, but afterwards recovered them. Findlater struck up'the re gimental charging tunc, "Haughs o', Cromdale," as his comrades rushed past him. He was shot in the ankle, the I'athan bullet passing through the limb and striking the heel of his other boot, which was torn away.

The Cold Bath. ITS GLOW OF REACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 February 1914

The Cold Bath. ITS GLOW OF REACTION. If you do not feel warm utter a cold bath you hud better not take it, for it is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness ; cold water may wash oft the superficial dirt, but it does not extract the dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating effect j and unless we get this cft'cct J from it we had better seek Die in vigovatipn in some other way. Cold j water applied suddenly drives tlio blood from the skin by constrict ing the capillaries. It also admin isters a light shock to the nerves, which lifts , an awakening effect upon all the muscles of the body. The capillaries being closed, the resistance of the blood to the heart pressure is greater. The heart re sponds to; this resistance by greater effort ; it beats more rapidly and with stronger force. The blood, surges -through the body more swiftly and forces its way through the capillaries as soon as the cold that lias closed them is ...

Another War Terror. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 February 1914

I Another War Terror. i • i Siguor Ulivi, an Italian, professes to havo invented a machinc which, if his claim can be .•ubstantiated, will add another horror to war far exceeding anything hitherto invent ed. According to his stn foment, the machine projects to any distance rays, designated as "I-'" rays, which [ have tin power of causing clectric sparks upon all metallic objects with which they come in contact. Should tlio "F" rays be directed upon a battleship, the electric sparks •occurring in the magazines cause the explosion of the ammuni tion. Jt would be the same with powder magazines, ammunition wag gons, loaded guns, or anything else containing explosives. Signor TJlivi gave the following account of liis first practical experiment : " Ono evening I thought of projecting the 'F'.rays against the gas-meter. I did so, and the meter blew up. My laboratory was destroyed, and I es-1 caped by a miracle. From that time I made further experiments in ' a similar direction, and having ...
