A Turtle Picnic at Night. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

A Turtle Picnic at Night. The hordes of purple and white crabs that fled on tiptoe at our ap proach, halting at a safe distance to turn round and stand upright, hissing and spitting defiance, so amused and absorbed us as to dis tract our attention from the pur pose in hand. Not that of Sad die, however, for, with, a hoarse yell to the stragglers behind, he did an astonishing grand circus act, and, not stopping to halt and kneel the camel, hurled himself like the arms of windmill, to the ground and rushed forward to intercept a huge, crawling monster of a tur tle he espied that had nearly made its escape into the breakers. The other men joining him, the curious creature was soon tilted and turned over on its back, a helpless fury of flapping 'flippers and snapping jaws. The camels indulged in ridi culous thrills, panics and strange antics at sight of the fearsome beasts and a camel doing a mas seul in the chaste light of the moon is not a dignified sight, and still looked askance eve...

IF YOU TRESPASS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

IF YOU TRESPASS. Trespassing is defined legally to be the entering upon the land of another without his permission or against his will. A trespasser may be "peaceably ejected." Damages, nominal or otherwise, can be claim ed for trespass without actual loss having to be proved. Actual damage to hedges, crops, etc., may be dealt with as a cHme—malicious damage to pro perty—and the punishment may be a fine or a term of imprisonment. It is an offence to set man-traps or spring guas on land a3 a pro-' tection against possible trespassers or poachers. A trespasser accom panied by a dog which worries cattle or sheep is liable for all damage, even if he pleads that the dog has never done damage before. No first bite is allowed.

FIERCE JfARFARE. WAVERING FORTUNES. A BRAVE ALLIES. FALL OF ANTWERP. "With ;-.n overwhelming force the Germans brought their big siege guns to hear 011 the Antwerp fortresses, and reduced them to powder.

There were horrible scenes of destitution, sickness and death during the flight.

THE FARM. THE VALUE AND IMPORTANCE OF LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

THE FARM. THE VALUE AND IMPORTANCE OF LUCERNE. One ton of lucerne hay has the same feeding value as 60 bushels of ! oats. Lucerne can be expected to average at least two tons per acre. | This is the equivalent of 120 bushels 1 of oats. There is no land that will 1 average 120 bushels of oats—in fact, 1 it takes good land and good hand j ling to average 60 bushels of oats ! per acre. The lucerne requires less work and less expense to handle than 1 a grain crop. And the lucerne will improve the soil while the oat crop will reduce its productive power. To get this value from lucerne it must be fed on the farm. It needs to be kept in mind that the lucerne is a roughage. ! The securing oi a stand ot luccrne V requires that the conditions neces sary to the lucerne be supplied. These are : Organic matter in soil. best supplied by manure ; good deer> compact seed bed, best furnished when land is manured ; ploughed deep for corn and the corn clean cultiva ted. Lucerne needs bacteria. If t...

THE DAIRY + PASTEURISED MILK CHEESE. I EXTRA COSTS OVER ORDINARY , METHOD AS COMPUTED IN" WIS CONSIN BULLETIN. | (Ninth instalment of Research Bulle tin 27, Wisconsin Experimental Sta tion, describing New Process of Manufacture of Cheddar Cheese from !

The extra cost of making pasteuri sed milk cheese is given in the fol lowing figures, which are estimated for an outfit handling 2000 It), of milk por hour and operated one hour per day. It is, of course, true that the charges against one pound would be reduced if the capacity of the out fit or the daily time of operating it were increased. The figures are re garded as expressing the maximum extra costs of making cheese by the new method, as compared with the old. The additional outfit required for making cheese by the new process, consists of a receiving vat, a pasteu riser and cooler, and an acidulator. ■which latter can be home-made.

BRUSHES WITH DEATH. AT THE LAST MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

BRUSHES WITH DEATH. AT THE LAST MOMENT. Few have had narrower escapes from a tragic death than the men of St. Kilda, when searching for sea-birds' eggs, suspended by a rope from the summit of cliffs several hundred feet high. Of one such es c-apc the following thrilling st,ory is told. The egg-hunter had been lowered over the cliff, when sud denly a loop that had been made in his rope, with the object of shorten ing it, taught in a projecting pin nacle. The sudden jerk slipped the knot of the loop, and down the climber dropped some thirty feet in to space, until he was brought up with a terrific jerk. When he recovered his senses, he saw on looking up, that the fall had cut his rope and that 4ie was hanging by a single stranl. To add to his horror the men at the top oT the cliff, ignorant, of what had happened, lx>gan to haul him up. At a.ny second the frnil strand might break, and precipitate him to certain death two hundred feet or more below. There was only one chance of savin...

The grey battleship seems stran • gels' deserted and bare, for her decks are denuded of men, while all rails and other upstanding encum brances have been laid flat on deck. The gun-turrets, five of them, are trained round with the long, lean muzzles of their twin weapons pointing out over the sea, and every now and then one of the guns twit ches ever so slightly, or a turret revolves a little, as the gunlayers keep their sights aliened on the distant target. The ten K?..Vs the ship carries are powerful weapons. Each one of them is over 50ft. long, and weighs close on 80 tons, while (heir 1,2501b shells can be hurled to a distance of over fifteen miles. The enormous projectiles, too. leave the muzzles at the rate of over 1,800 miles an hour, and can pene trate the thickest armour afloat at a range of 5,000 yards. INSIDE THE TURRETS.

CHAPTER IV. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BORDER PROVINCES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

CHAPTER IV. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE' BORDER PROVINCES. Dugdale perhaps did not feel quite so gay as he looked. Something1 told him ho was about to encounter one who was destined to have more or less to do with his future, so far as it might be connected with that of the fair fugitive. And the reputation of the grim old. fire-eater, as well as the appearance of his square jaws, was enough to provo that any one who ran up against him must expect to encoun ter a tough proposition. There was but little time to whip his wits into line and decide upon what tactics he should use. He knew Gratschef! to be a tiger in battle, and shrewdly concluded that while such a man might rage at first to find his will defied, he could not but secretly respect an antagonist who refused to bend before him, and who proved a foeman worthy of his steel. It was a bold game Dugdale set out to play, in which he depende-d on other powers to assist him. The lieutenant led him across to the fortress or citadel ; night ...

PART 2. CHAPTER III.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

PART 2. CHAPTER III.—(Continued.) As he turned to enter the tavern ..he heard the clear notes of a bugle floating down from the heights. What story it told was evident, for there was a sudden hustling and excitement among the uniformed guardians of the citadel. Officers appeared buckling on swords, horses were brought hastily forth, into the saddles of which sprang valiant sol diers ; and, lo ! in an incredibly brief space of time a company of fully five score men lined up to re ceive the great commanding general, whose special signal had aroused the sleepy camp. Then the three horsemen appeared in view, the general saluted officers and men, and remained in consulta tion for a short time, during which Dugdale vi-hk thriiled to see them all look in his direction and iaueii. His annoyance was evident as he stalked into the inn. Isolde had already gone to her room, leaving word that with his permission she would join him when supper was ready, unless he had some engagement elsewhere. T...

CHAPTER VI. DUGDALE DINES WITH THE FAIRY QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

CHAPTER VI. DUGDALE DINES WITH THE FAIRY QUEEN. As yet Dugdale was not conscious of having done anything extraordin ary, unless his boldness in the face of the autocrat might be looked up on in that light. I He had carried his point. The general called him a fool, and per haps time might prove him to be such, but just at present he felt like rejoicing over the fact that he had gained the privilege of seeing this bright little lady of the proscription as often as he pleased, and even sharing her journey out of the country. What would she say ? He winced a little tinder the fear lest she might think him bold to thus forcc his company on her unasked. He was settled in the belief that she could not be the Vera OrlofI of whom so many startling stories had gone the rounds of the continental press, and was more than puzzled to understand why so bluff and truthful a soldier as General Gratschefl could defile his lips with a deliberate lie in order to deceive him — perhaps to make him recoil...

About April Fools. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

About April Fools. 1 Nobody appe<T.rs to be able to say. with any degree of ccrtainty, how, when, or why the custom of trying to make fools of one's friends and neighbours on the morn ing of April 1st came into being, i The custom is not by any means | confined to England. .It prevails j almost throughout the world. In i Scotland they call an April fool | a gowk (cuckoo) : the French call | him un posson d'Avril—that is to • say, a mackerel. We ourselves ■ have the expression, "You silly mac ! kerel !" and silly indeed are most j of the people who get caught by j the jokes engendered on April 1st. Home authorities say that the custom owes its origin to the pro verbial uncertainty of April wea ther ; others, to the mockery trial of our Lord. But similar tricks are played in Hindustan, at the Huli Festival (March 31st.) Perhaps, then, it may be a relic of the Roman "Cerealia," held at the beginning of April. The tale is (hat Proserpina was sporting in the F.h'siau meadows, ...

FARMERS' INSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

FARMERS' INSURANCE. Special interest attaches to the opera tion of the workers' Compensation Act with respect to its application to farmers, and the State insurance commissioner (Mr. W. Holmes) has made a statement for the guidance of those engaged in farming operations. Mr. Holmes points out that the rate • of premium to be paid by fanners is 20/ per cent, on the estimated remuneration for a period of twelve months to employees who come within the scope of the act. This rate applies irrespective of work they may engage in, including bush falling, harvesting and threshing, and horse-breaking. To the actual wages must be added the estimate value of " keep," and this is taken as 15/ per week for each employee "found;" so that if a farm hand is in receipt of, say, per week and "keep," the actual remuneration on which the pre mium to cover the employer's liability to pay compensation as provided in the act is based is .£177 per annum, con sisting of wages ^78 and estimated value of " ke...

LIVIII8 LIKE RABBITS. Writing from the Aisne, an officer in the trenches says that for the ten days they have been there aeroplanes watched them, shells flew overhead by day, and there were alarms and rifle fire by night. " We live like rabbits," the letter goes on, " digging ourselves deeper and deeper into the hearth, till we are com pletely sheltered from above, coming out now and then when things are quiet to cook and eat. We do not wash, do not change clothes, but sleep at odd in tivals whenever we gel a chance.. Daily we become more accustomed to our lot, or, rather, our existence. Holes just large enough to sit in are our homes, with straw and perhaps a sack for warmth. " The cold is intense at night, Those who have made woollen caps and com forters for us have earned our . thanks. The coldest moments are those when there is an alarm of a night attack, and we spring from our sleep to stand shiver ing behind the parapet, peering over the wall to see our enemies, and firing at ...
