BIRD DAY AT MURTOA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
BIRD DAY AT MURTQA. I Bird day was celebrated throughout the schools of Victoria on the 16th inst. Although recognised quietly in most places, still it is a movement that is having very far-reaching effects. It is safe to say that the attitude towards birds of 95 per cent, of the children of the State has been radically changed by it. Formerly birds and their eggs were regarded as fair prey by all boys ; now nearly all boys are their protectors. Around the lake are numerous nests known to boys, but not robbed. In stead, one band of boys was able to report that they found some young birds on the ground and had replaced them in their nests. This friendship for birds has a refining influence upon the natures of children. They admire the beauty of form and color of the birds; they listen to the outpourings of song; they note the varied habits ot the birds. And this last will have an economic value, for it will ensure pro tection for the useful birds. The outing of the Murtoa school was ...
CHEAP GAS INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
CHEAP GAS INVENTION, A young Marion (Kansas) man an-' nounces the invention of a process for solving the fuel problem. By means of a special motor and gene rator he claims his ability to pro duce pure hydrogen gas from a de composition of water at the low cost of one penny per 1,000 cubic feet. It is understood that he has dis posed of his invention and all the apparatus necessary for the produc tion of gas to an Eastern manufac turer for a large cash consideration and a yearly royalty. His generators and motors, he de clares, will be available for use on motor-cars, launches, stationary and marine engines, and heating and lighting plants. The Arrow's Flight.—"Please, Mrs. Bowles, can I have my arrow ? It's gone over into your garden," said little Bobby. " Certainly, my boy," answered Mrs. Bowles. "Where is it ?" "I—I fink it's in your cat !" was I the timid reply.
Into Thin Air. AN EXPLANATION OF THE PASSING OF MANY MASTERS OF FLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
Into Thin Air. AN EXPLANATION OF THE PASS ING OF MANY MASTERS OF FLIGHT. To anyone who ha3 never noticed the fact, it must come as a shock to realise how rapidly famous fly ers keep disappearing from the fly ing news. Batches of star flyers drop" out every year. Paulhan, for instance, who won the famous £10,000 light- from London to Man h:ster, has long since abandoned flying, and is liv ing quietly in the country in France a rich man, after starting life as a mechanic. Leon Morane, who four years a^o was the most famous of the world's flying men, and who startled the aviation world with his altitude re cords, has long since recovered from a bal fall he once had. But ho flies no more. AN EXPERT AT LAW. Lieutenant Conneau, who, as "Beaumont," won fame by his thrilling victory in the race round Britain in 1911, has dropped fly ing to devote himself to the ; in venting and manufacturing of new types of waterplanes. He has re signed his lieutenancy in the French and has been appointed a...
What Mona Lisa Theft Teaches. FINGER-PRINT SYSTEM FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
What Mona Lisa Theft Teaches. r ♦ FINGER-PRINT SYSTEM FLAW. I The unexpected discovery of "La > I Joconde," or "Mona Lisa,"' the I famous painting by Leonardo* da 1 Vinci, to light a serious defect in the Bertillon system. For as soon as the thief confessed and his name was known his record was looked up in the archives of the French police, and the disconcerting fact that his finger prints had been in , iheir possession since February 9th, 3 900, was disclosed. And imme diately after the theft of the "Mona Lisa," the print of a thumb was j found upon its frame, a print that! turns out now to be identical with that of the thief's—Vincenzo Peru gia—left thumb, which has been on j file at police headquarters for five years. Now, the sole value of the finger print to the police is its ability to point out to them the criminal. Why, then, asks the French public, did the finger print system fail so lamentably in this case ? Enlargement of Perugia's Left Tnumb Print, taken in 1909. Tho...

The Right to Die. 1 Mrs. William Squicr, of Atco, 'Now Jersey, who was doomed to die by her doctors just one year ago, is now cured, and has left her bed, where for many months she had luin a helpless cripple, suffering continuously from an intestinal tumour. Iier case ,has excited world wide interest, because Mrs. Squier, regarding her case as hopeless, ap pealed to the Legislature for a law permitting euthanasia for herself and other victims, equally unfortu . nate, who -lias been "pronounced in curable." * The controversy raised by Mrs. , fr-quier's plea for the right to die . continued throughout the summer months, the tw"o sides apparently being about equally divided "When an animal suffers hopelessly we put it out of its misery," wrote Mrs. Squier, "but we allow human be ings to remain in agony when there is no hope for them." fin" nf ttir> lp.ndinc surcreons in New York heard of a woman's suffering and her unusual appeal, and took interest in her ease.

What Killed Them. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
What Killed Them. Hundreds of years ago in a loft in the old Tabard Inn, in South wark, a cat was killed mysterious ly just as she caught and was slaying two rats. One she had in her jaws, tho other she was pinning clown with her foot. How death came is not known, but it came in such a form that cat and rats alike were mummi fied. For centuries the group stood in the same position under the raf ters, hidden from sight. The pas sage of time made no difference to their state, and when the old inn was pulled down they were at last discovered. This cat and her victims are now in a glass case in the offices of Mr. W. Le May, tho hop factor, in Southwark. The cat is still holding the rats, and their skins were still intact. The rat which is held in the cat's jaws has its mouth open just as it had when it started to squeal before death overtook them all.
THE EVERSLEY WATER SCHEME. DEPUTATION TO THE MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
THE EVERSLEY WATER SCHEME. DEPUTATION 1 0 THE MINISTER. A represents* ive deputation from the Wimmern municipalities interviewed the Minister for Waier Supply (Hon. W. Hutchinsoti) Inst Thursday at Mel bourne to urge the carrying out of this water storage. The presidents of Dun munkie, Karkarooc, Borung, Donald, Crs. Pendleuirg, Connellan, Tibb-ls, Dehlenhury and several members of Parliament spolu in favor of the schema. The Minister, in reply stated that although Lake Lonsdale had nut answered all demands it was a matter of gratification that it had accom modated, even in ; his dry season, 95 per cent of the farmers' requiremems. The estimnted cost of the Eversley scheme in 1905 was ^145,000, but that was now increased by the rise in the price of labor and material to rSoooo, at the lowest estimate. Eversley was at the head of the Wim mera, and to save the widening of the channel the Water Commission con sidered that to cut an outlet channel to meet the distributing channels at Gl...

Training Wild Animals. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
Training Wild Animals. When they aro not performing on the stage under the eyes of their J trainer, wild animals are always ] under observation. Day and night ! an attendant is stationed near the cages, and so long as they know he is thsro the animals are happy and contented. Lot him, however, go away forUialf an hour and they becomo restless. The cages used for travelling are,, in general, small aflairs, each pro viding just room enough for one animal to sprawl at full length and in comfort. Then there is an exercise cage, in which they take turns to loll, while t.he big perform ing cage is sot up every day to lot them run about and get some real exercise. Generally, however, l.hey prefer to sleep and dose in quiet. Of course, the cages aro kept scru pulously clean. The false floors ere removed several times every day, and scrubbed and scalded. The glossy coats of the animals are brushed 'down and toileted every day. They arc fed on raw beef, newly killed and warm. On an average, e...
STATE POLITICS. THE COMING ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
STATE POLITICS. THE COMING ELECTIONS. Towards the end of next month Vic toria has to elect a new Legislative Assembly, and if the right men aie to be returned Liberals must exert them selves betimes. Those Liberals who fancy that they can afford to take the State contest as a dress parade, inevitably ending in the triumphant return of Sir Alexander Peacock and his supportors, can not be too soon undeceived. There is no reason to suppose that Labor will secure a majority in next Parliament. There is every reason to fear that it will in crease ist strength. In the metropolitan area certain municipal issues, the taking over of the tramways, the legislation re the Gas Company, and so on, will de termine thousands of votes. A section of the Melbourne electors are dissatisfied •with what has been done, quite unjustly they are blaming Sir Alexander Feacock and his colleagues, and the " Age " is is fanning their indignation. It is well that country elections should bear that clearly in mind...

PART 4. CHAPTER X. 'THE STING OF THE. SCORPION • ' WHIP. Dugdale was charmed with her can dour, and made sure he would be able to accomplish what was of vi tal importance, granting that all other matters had been properly ar ranged. "And you will, o£ course, make a small parcel of what you need most. Not too large to prevent its being carried on a horse if we are compel led to travel in the saddle." "Yes, yes. Monsieur, you do not neglect the details. I fear the general may have more trouble to detain you than he expected. At the same time, I am uneasy, conscious of the fact that we are almost strangers, and" "I am a man of honour, I assure you." "Merci, it was not that. I was afyout to say that since we ba%e ; only recently met I have no claim . upon. y,ou, . and still you insist on forcing me to accept favours that may cost you dear."

WHEN SEA MEETS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
WHEN SEA MEETS LAND. The Dover cliffs are being stead ily eaten away every year. In 1909 thousands of tons of chalk fell from Shakespeare Cliff, and three years previously there .was a fall during which the coast-guard's watch-house at the summit was hurled into the waves. Year by year the fight for the land goes on between man and sea. i Taken all round, there is an ac tual gain of land, however. Part of this is natural, from river silt, and part artificial, from groynes and embankments. During the last thirty-five years 48,000 acres have been gained from the sea, and only 6,400 lost. The east coast suffers most. At Heme j Bay alone from 1872 to 1896 a thousand feet of coast were lost for ever.
CHAPTER XI. DEFYING THE WAR TIGER OF THE BALKANS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
CHAPTER XI. DEFYING THE WAR TIGER OF THE BALKANS. i When this matter had been satis factorily adjusted, and Vladimir be came a party to the rebellion against General Gratschcfl's authority in the Balkans, Owen Dogdale felt inspired with new zeal. He would ha^e attempted the task alone and single-handed., if necessity had compelled such a thing ; but the chunces of success were meagre at any time, and almost hopeless with out the aid of some one who knew the wild mountain roads, and how by a sagacious trick those who pur sued might possibly be baffled. For it was a foregone conclusion that the chase would be hot enough to please the most fastidious, once the iron general understood how he had been mocked and defied bv this stranger within the gates. Accordingly Dugdale now set about I forming a plan of action. ! The Cossack had a bright mind, and this was directly in line with what he considered his strongest point—action. His suggestions assisted the tra veller not a little in makin...
There and Back. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
There and Back. 1 A certain motor tourist has a small car with an ingeniously con trived luggage-carrier I ehind. Un fortunately the carrier will hold other things besides luggage. When the tourist had got 20 miles on his Easter journey and stopped for re freshment he found that an urchin had taken a free ride in the car rier. ••••■». - Had the boy been 12 years old the matter would easily have been settled. The trespasser might have been punished just by allowing him to walk home again. But what was to be done with a child of eight ? The motorist took him to a sta tion and put him into a train for his home. He declares that the imp's grin of delight when he saw that a free train ride was to fol low the free motor ride was the most exasperating sight of his life.
CHAPTER XII HOW THET SLIPPED OUT OF OLD RUSTCHUK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
HH A PTTCT? XTT HOW THET SLIPPED OUT OF OLD RUSTCHUK. There had been a few changes in his plans. Why bother seeking the door of the tavern when his window would serve the same end ?. It was open, ; and a dozen times his head had j been thrust forth to seek fresh air, since his room had a distinctly stale, musty odour ; and at the same time he was in the habit of sweeping his eyes around that part of the moun tain panorama that fell within the scope of his vision. Some clouds, harbingers of luck in his interest, had swept up from the storm nest to the south-wost, and occasionally screened the pale mis tress of the night skies. Dugdale wished there wore more : indeed, tho gloomiest night would have been preferable to this one with a moon, in so far as making their escape was concerned, though once among the wild roads of the moun tains they might be very glad of the illumination, with perilous preci pices encompassing them on every hand. Dugdale had boldly determined to abandon most o...
Justification. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914
Justification. ( A lawyer tells the following of a judge who in his day was an advo cate of temperance in eating, in drinking, in the use of tobacco—in oil things. Praising temperance at a law yers' banquet, he once told a story about a young wife, who said to her husband— "Jack, dear, I do wish 5rou would stop drinking. Every time you go to one of these banquets of yours you get up the next morn ing pale and tired ; you won't eat anything ; you just gulp down nine or ten glasses of water. Do stop drinking, won't you, dear ? I know it's bad for you." "But all great men 'have been drinking men," • Jack brumbled. "Look at Webster, look at Poe, look at Charles Lamb, look at Grant, look " "Well," interrupted his wife, "you just promise, dear, that you'll quit drinking till you're great, and I'll be satisfied."
