Criminals' Secret Slang. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Criminals' Secret Slang. That the modern "crook" is a past master in the art of slang, and can carry on a conversation with his confederates which would puzzle Scot land Yard's cleverest linguist, is evident from tho following account ' j of an incident which was related to the writer. 1 ! I quote tho words exactly as I j heard them : "Wo saw a publican who we knew and whose ' lot ' we | admired. Wo ' tailed' him round till he got in a ' scuff ' at a stall. Wo then started performing and lifted his ' kettle.' He had a ' daco ' round while we wero on tho iob, but we lifted the ' tackle.' nut it turned out to be ' Duffman Dick,' and, of course, it was a 'wash out.' But we drew a bit, and had the satisfaction of 'blewing' a ' dead can' who, according to his own idea was very smart." Fuzzling though the terms quoted may seem, they are quite easily un derstood by the criminal fraternity. "Lot" means watch and chain, and any other jewellery which may be 1 displayed by ■ he victim, and "ta...

Bank-notes in Wrecks. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Bank-notes in Wrecks. Although the chances of being able , to do so are considered doubtful, since she lies in seven teen fathoms of water, the Cana dian Pacific Railway have not yet abandoned all hope of refloating the Empress of Ireland. At any rate, every effort will be made to recover £200,000 worth of silver, j in 163 bags, which is still in the spccie-room of the sunken liner. The most notablo salvage of sil ver during recent years was made after the Oceana sank in the Chan nel in March, 1912, through col lision with the Pisagua. The work was hindered by strong currents and tides, but during the succeeding three months silver worth over £500,000 was recovered at a very low cost. The Oceana was lying quite upright ; the Empress of Ire land turned turtle—obviously a very much more difficult position for salvage worlc. The £200,000 worth of silver, however, represents but a small portion of the money which went down with the ill-fated vessel ; for thousands of pounds belonging to...

Royal Palace "Burglars." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Royal Palace "Burglars." Tho escapade of the adventurous .Londoner who achieved notoriety recently by scaling the garden wall and entering Buckingham Palace by way of the servants' quarters recalls the story of the chemist's boj* whom | Sydney Smith nicknamed "In-I-go'' , Jones, who thi'co times in 18-10 and 1841 gained access to the" pal- j ace by a means never discovered, j and on one occasion continued se- I ci-eted there for several days. j The first timo Jones entered the palace he was actually discovered under a sofa in a room next to j that in which Queen Victoria was sleeping, and on the second occasion lie was found in a recess. This se j cond escapade led to him being sent to prison for three months as a rogue and vagabond; but even this punishment did not cure him of his •''miriness for invading the palace, for three months later he tried to get into tho building ngain, only to be captured almost immediately by ' a constable on duty. Instead of sending the boy to prison, ...

HOW TO CUT GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

HOW TO CUT GLASS. i There is a method of cutting glass without the aid of a dia mond which is very little known. Take a piece of common string and dip it in alcohol and squeeze it reasonably dry. Then tie the string tightly around the glass on the line of cutting. Touch a match to the string and let it burn off. The heat of the burning string will weaken the glass in this particular place. While it is hot plunge the glass under water, letting the arm go under well to the elbow so that there will be no vibration when the glass is struck. With the free hand strike the glass outside the ■line of cutting, giving a quick, sharp stroke with any long flat in strument, such as a stick of wood or a long-bladed knife, and the cut will be as clean and straight as if made by a regular glass cutter. At a recent "meet," the hounds were in full cry across a large field, surrounded by a log hedge j and a wide ditch. Presently there was a crash and a thud. Looking back, one of the huntsmen called ou...

MURTOA SHOW. ANOTHER SUCCESS FINE ENTRIES. FAIR ATTENDANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

ANOTHERSUOOFSS FINE ENTRIES. PATH ATTENDANCE. In spite of the abnormal weather con ditions and the prevailing drought there was a good attendance at the show ground on Wednesday, but not equal to that of last year, only ^32/11/- being taken at the gates against .£45/19/- in 1913. The figures however, represent a fair crowd, when it is considered tha: the Murtoa show is one of the very few agricultural societies that do no: charge admission fees for horses, vehicles, motors, and members' families. The truns were not so well patronised as usual, and the absence of several country residents was noticeable, pro bably as the result of the existing de pression. Truth tu confess, there did not appear to be that whole-hearted enthusiasm which hitherto characterised the proceedings of this annual carnival ; but the entries were good and the com petitions keen in many instances. Mr. SV. LAoyd, of the Commercial Hold had the publican's booth, and appeared to be one of the busiest men on the gr...

SHIRE SECRETARY'S REPORT. The following report was submitted to the council on Tuesday showing the result o( a deputation which recently visited Melbourne :— I have the honor to report that on Thursday, 17th Sepfemher last, I inter viewed Mr Shaw, of the State Rivers, re the matter of spoil deposited by their con tractor on road between Tickner's and" Chapman's, and claimed £'25 on behalf of thi) council for putting the road in order, as the Commission's proportion. Mr. Slmw referred this matter for the report of the construction engineer, Mr. M'Nabb, of Warracknabeal.

PART 8 CHAPTER VI.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

PART 8 CHAPTER VI.—(Continued.) They two sat alone at the rough table, spread with as bountiful a store as could be evolved from the limited menu of a Russian tavern. Dugdale pictured to himself with more or less inward chuckles the in tense astonishment of Sir John Cranford, Lee Whiteley, the famous artist, or any of his London cronies, could they have chanced upon the scene by some queer irony of fate. - He was'a liicliy dog. He bad won the goodwill of this fair goddess by a simple act of courtesy, which she seemed to think should be magnified because of her peculiar environment. What would she say when he told her he had elected to see her safely across the border, in spite of the old war-dog's sneers and warnings ? Perhaps she would be angry. What business had he7 a comparative stranger, to thus force his company, upon her, without so much as ask ing consent ? Dugdale was not wholly at his ease, although he laughed and chatted as might one quite free from all care. Strange to sa...

Disenchantment. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Disenchantment. * Sir Robert Ball, the famous as tronomer, whose death occurred re cently, used to tell a little story of an experience that ho had when he was at the Dunsink Observa tory. A farmer came to him one day, and asked if he might look at the moon through the telescope, j "Surety you can," 6aid Ball. "Come round to-night, and I shall be very happy to let you see it through the telescope." "Can't I see it now,?" asked the farmer, surprised. j "I am sorry that you "cannot," said the astronomer. "You will have to wait until night." I "Huh ! Then your old telescopo is not so great a thing as I j thought it was !" cried the man, relieved from his illusion. "I can see the moon at night without it."

CHAPTER VII. A PRETTY FATHER CONFESSOR. | As Dugdale and his companion pas ! sed outside they perceived that tin? humour of the night had taken a turn, for it was no longer dark and I shadowy. Over the rugged hills had climbed n moon that shone blood red through the vapour, and colour ed all things with a mellow flood of light. To one who loved Nature the scene was particularly beautiful, but for once in his life Dugdale paid very, little attention to the picture. He had other and more weighty thiugB on his mind. Those in the tap room dared not follow now, no matter how strenu ous their curiosity might be. The ru mour had gone forth, borne by many a wagging tongue, that this bein^ of transcendental loveliness was un der the particular charge of the autocrat who ruled the southern campB, and whose frown was feared 1 by man, woman, and child iv?.n more than the devil, for one could be visibly experienced, while t.no other was but a possibility aftfer de mise.

The Ways of Society. RECEIVING ROYALTY, A new book to which the "Lou-J don Evening News" draws atten-1 tion is "The Ways of Society," by [ Mrs. Danvers Delano (Werner Laurie ' Ltd.), which is very amusing on things everybody knows, things not many people know, and things everybody ought to know. Not everybody knows, for in stance, that "the title of Honour able, though (merely a courtesy title, ranks in order of precedence, and a young man bearing such a title is entitled to take his hostess into dinner when older men not sq distinguished are present." There is a note for the older | married woman; the younger lias I already taken it to heart : j "Steadfastly avoid nnytliing ap proaching anxiety about the viands.

CHAPTER VIII. A WARD OF THE CZAR. Dugdale spoke lightly, as though it ■were the merest bagatelle he referred to, and he desired to make as little boasting of It as possible. His companion appeared greatly agitated. She stood back and looked at him in a manner he could not whollj understand. Why, what did it amount to ? Tn three days they'd be over the border. What cared he if his sentence of exile prevented him from ever entering Russia again, save at his peril ? She would be in the same boat, and yet Russia was her native country. "Sir, what possessed, you to do Buch a bold thing ? How dared you, unasked, propose to cast your for tunes with mine ?" she asked, slow ly, with something like a shock of anger in her voice. "I can hardly say. First of all, he aroused my animosity, by his ovor ! bearing ways. It was as much as a dare.

Record in Deep-sea Diving. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Record in Deep-sea Diving. The Italian ironclad Rein a Mor gherita lost an anchor and chain near the Isle of Scarpanto, in the Aegean Sea. The depsh here was 38 fathoms (231ft.), and the iron embedded in liquid mud. No diver in tho ordinary suit and helmet could work at such depths, and the Government decided to employ a Greek fisher, Hadji Statti Geor gius by name. Statti simply stripped and took a 301b. stone beneath his arm to aid his descent. This he never abandons while under the water. It is attachod to a cord, by which it is remounted when he gains the surface. The first day he dived six times. These wero simply trial trips to test the exact depth, etc. On the second day, five descents enabled him to fix . a cord to the links of the chain. The third day, , making five dives, he succeeded in lifting the chain several yards and finding the head of tho anchor. A | short steel hawser was fixed to J this, and on the fourth day (after Hadji had been thrice to tho bot tom of the sea...
