The Dum-Dum Bullet. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 15 July 1915

The Dum-Dum Bullet. The wide publicity given in the public Press to the accusations that the various nations now in conflict in Europe have been making use of "Dum-dum" bullets brings out the fact that few people know what a "<lum-dum" is, and what is more to the point in the present circumstan ces, fewer still have any idea of the widely varying character of gunshot wounds. During the Chitral campaign in In dia, in 1S95, the native troops found that the nickel-jackcted lead bullets' they were using were not as cflective as they wished ; that is, they did not "stop" their man. They found the difficulty could be overcome by partially stripping off the nickel jacket and exposing the leaden head. These bullets, because they came from the Dum-dum Ammunition works, at Calcutta, were known as dum-dums. They became greatly distorted on striking a soft body, spreading out into something like a mushroom shape and producing a very serious wound. This is the true dum-dum bullet. It ...

State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. Article No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 15 July 1915

State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED Article No. 2. A gratifying response lias been made to the appeal of the Stato Parliament Recruiting Committee for additional men to go to the front. Even before tho real work of the recruiting week commenced those willing to serve the Empire, carne forward in large numbers. Since then meetings have beeni held in every contre, and these have been the means of bringing home'to thousands of Victorians the need for immediate action if the war is to bo brought to a suc cessful issue. Yet it is obvious to a!) that there are still many men suitabib *n health and phy sique who have not heeded the call. In the case of some it n'tZy well be that time is required to make the necessary arrangements before joining the colors. With others it may be that family or business reasons preclude imme diate action. But with large numbers it is clear that even the urgent call of the State Parlia ment has not been heard. Why is this ? To such...

TO HARDEN THE SURFACE OF CONCRETE FLOORS. Concrete floors in factories do not always stand the wear, so that the new treatment now. current should become better known. A mixture of 15 or 20 pounds of iron dust or flour with 100 pounds of cement is added to twice that much sand and applied ae a top coat, nearly an inch Ihick. It is said to be hard, very durable for heavy wear, water proof, and not slippery. There are no rules for friendship. It must be left to itself. Wc cannot force it any morO'tha;i love.-Hazllt.

THE SIKH'S TERRIBLE WEAPON. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 22 July 1915

THE SIKH'S TERRIBLE WEAPON. Tho steel arrow used by German military aviatorB ic an interesting reversion to mediaeval methods. But the most remarkable ot handthrown steel iniBsilea is the disc ol the Sikhs. Formerly this was the most terrible weapon of that warlike people, though varioUB Hindu races have known it for centuries. Vishnu him self is sometimes represented holding a disc in each hand. The disc weighs eight ounces ; it is a sixth of an inch thick, and its diameter is eight in. The edge is as keen as a razor. It is thrown as one throws flat pebbles to make ducks and drakes. ItB tra jectory is flat, and its rotation du ring the flight causes a terrible wound. Sir Ralph Payne Gallwey has experimented with it. He has throv.-n it two hundred yards, and it can sever an inch-thick branch with out losing any appreciable velocity. In old days the Sikh soldier carried a dozen.

THE "LIFE" OF A BIG GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 22 July 1915

THE "LIFE" OF A BIG «UN. What is .the life of the big guns thnt play such havoc in modern war fare ? A big battleship gun is used up after firing a hundred rounds. If each shell started the moment the one before had left the muzzle the gun would last only three seconds ! After a hundred rounds the rilling o[ the core or lining of the gun is des troyed by the hot gases from the explosive, not, as one might sup pose, by the friction of the Bhell. As to the life of the guns used' in land warfare information is not so easy to get, but it must (remarks a correspondent) bo much longer than that ol the naval guns, considering the amazing rate of lire and the du ration of the bombardments.

DON'T KISS THE CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 22 July 1915

DON'T KISS THIS CAT. It must be a terrifying revelation, to those foreign Indies v.iio kiss their cats, that has been made by Profes sor Kiocei, the Italian chemist. He has found by experiment tl'-f- v.-hen a cat licks its lips it spreads over them a saliva in which there are swarms of minute bacilli not free from danger to human beings. When lie inoculated rabbits and guinea pigs with this noxious substance they died within twenty-four hours; and he has come to the conclusion that it is dangerous for ladies to in dulge in the habit of kissing their cats. We are not aware that the habit exista in Australia. We can not conceive of any lady indulging in it. By the professor's experi ments we learn, further, that there are ladies in Italy who kiss their lap-dogs, a habit even more danger ous than the other. His analysis of the saliva of these animals brought out facts that are too j-epulsive to be mentioned.

WORLD-WICH 1MGTES* DEATH UNDER FIUI It would seem that our inner ma chinery, having no further use for thiB world, has found a '.[nick affinity with a life that has its roots in an other, from which comes new light and fresh power. "Odd. I don't mind saying that from a boy I havo always had nn awful fear of death. At school often I was afraid to go to bed lest I might die in my sleep. Now it. has come, and I haven't the slightest fear." This was the utter ance of a young officer to his com rade. One could quote many exam ples of similar import. Jn the course of a talk with Geo.

Another Way of Putting It. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 22 July 1915

Another Way of Putting It. In a police-court an inspector was giving evidence of the arrest of the prisoner. "I went to number twenty-seven," he said, in a dignified staccato fas hion that came from long practice, "where I saw the prisoner in bed. I said : 'I have a warrant for your arrest for burglariously entering the premises at " and so on. At the end of the inspector's evi dence the magistrate asked the pri soner : "Any questions ?" "Yes, sir," said the prisoner, and he intimated that the inspector had not given his evidence correctly. "I'm sure," he said, "Mr. Jackson" -the inspector-"don't want to say only what is true. Didn't you come to my room"-turning to the in spector-"and say : 'Now, then, Gin ger, 'op out of it-I -.vant yer' 7" Two neighbours had a long litiga tion about a small spring, which they both claimed.

Operating on a Tiger. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 22 July 1915

Operating on a Tiger. A well tiger is'usually not a plea sant individual to handle. Can you imagine, then, the difficulty of hand ling a sick one ? Such a task fell to a Dublin professor when one of the tigers in the Phoenix Park Zoo logical Gardens was threatened witli gangrene in its paw, making an op eration necessary. The .professor's experience was a thrilling one. The mate of the tiger was first secured in a side den. A net was then thrown over the tiger, and he was drawn to the door of the cage Four stoat keepers held tin: feet of the struggling animal while the professor cut away the diseased claw. The suffering beast furiously but vainly tried to get , at him during the operation, but the rage of the tigress looking on through the bars of the side den was much more ter rible to behold. She roared and violently threw herself against the barriers in her mad desire to go to the rescue of her mate. When the tigress was admitted to the cage after the wound in her mate had been d...
