SOUTH AFRICAN REVOLT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914

SOUTH AFRICAN REVOLT. An official announcement made in London on Tuesday shows that there has been an alarming extension of the revolt in South Africa. Generals Christian De Wet and Beyers have headed a rebellion in Northern Orahgia and the Western Transvaal. Heilbron, a mining town 90 miles south-west of Pretoria, and on the rail way line to the latter city, has been seized, and the Government officials in the town made prisoners. The rebels stopped a train at Reitz and took from the train a number of soldiers, whom they disarmed. The Union Government is taking drastic measures to quell the fresh trouble. It is officially stated that the traitor Marita was wounded in the leg, but his condition is not dangerous. The losses among the South- African troops amounted to seven wounded. Many of the rebels surrendered at Kakamas, including several men who had been wounded. Maritz retreated to Schuitdrift, aban doning camp stores and waggonload of ammunition. A further batch of 124 of Mari'...

How Women were Made. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914

How Women'were Made. | -f According to a Hindu legend, this is tha proper origin of woman. Twashtri, the god of Vulcan of the Hindu mythology, created the world. But on his commencing to create woman he discovered that with man he had exhausted all his creative materials, and that not one solid element had been left. This, j of course, greatly perplexed Twash tri, and caused him to fall into a profound meditation. When he I arose from it he proceeded as fol- j lows : lie took the roundness of the moon, the undulating curves of the serpent, the graceful twist of the creeping plant, the light shivering of the grass blade and the slender ness of the willow, the velvety softness of the flowers, the lightness of the feather, the gentle gaze of the doe, the frolicsomeness of the danc ing sunbeam, the tears of the cloud, the inconstancy of the wind, the timidness of the hare, the vanity of the peacock, the hardness of the dia mond, the sweetness of honey, the cruelty of the tiger, the heat...

Tip, or "Kip ?" ♦ —s— Dressed in a much-worn check suit, with the inevitable tight trou sers, and endeavouring to the best <>r his ability to look as "horsey " as possible, the hard-up individual on the "make-haste" stood on a part of the Epsom nowns, anxious ly on the look-out for a prospective greenhorn. Presently a simple looking country youth came along, whereupon the "horsey" man's hopes brightened. x "Going to the races ?" '.he would be benefactor in the faded checks asked the other. "Yes," was the brief reply. "Then let me put you on a good thing," said the tipster, in philan thropic tones. "1 have come straight from the stable !" The country youth quietly pro duced four pennies from his pocket and handed them over to the aston ished speaker. "Come straight from the stable, eh ?" said he. "Well, now you will be able to pay for a bed to-night, anj-way !" The cat was regarded as sacred by the Egyptians ; but though it may still look at a king, few! are now so poor...

A Song of Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914

A Song of Hope. 1 There is a pill • '.'or every ache, a salve for every sore, so let's re joice and never make a rumpus any more. There is a poxiltice for each head, for every pain some dope ; until the doctors say we're dead, no one should give up hope. I knew a man once on a time, who had no store of cash; lie said this world was quite a crime, and all its glories trash; and so lie got a neighbour's axe and by the old horse trough, with sundry strong nnd skilful whacks he chopped his headpiece off. Next week a lawyer printed ads., announcing that this knave had fallen heir to heaps of scads, but he was in bis grave. The darkest hour, as Homer said, is just be fore the dawn; there's often com fort just ahead when all the hope seems gone. There is a syrup for each cough, a lance for every boil, so never think to shuflie of! some yards of mortal coil. Misfortune hits us now and then, but V we bravely grin, she'll go pursuing weaker men and push their faces in. There is a cure for eve...

Possibilities of Brush Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914

Possibilities of Brush Invention. f The manufacture of brushes offers unlimited fields for the inventor, both in the production of a mater ial to replace hog bristle, which is constantly growing more scarce and higher priced, and in the method of making tho various sorts of paint varnish, lather, hair, clothes and other brushes. The following information regard ing past eflorts and present needs (says the " Scientific American ") may be of assistance to any wtio wish to go into the matter. Probably the most pressing need is for a rapid, inexpensive method of setting painl nnd varnish brushes. This setting or fastening must bo nbscilutely imprrvious to the ac tion of all liquids, including water, oils, alcohol, French t-pirits, tur pentine, and the various distilla tion of conl oil, and should not necessitate the application of either he;it or pressure. It should be •adaptable to round, oval, and flat brushes of all sizes and lengths. The system of vulcanisation is ob jectionable on ...

Saved by Stilts. + Here is an interesting true story I of hew a pair of stilts once saved a man's life when he ^as in deadly i (J anger. | Some j'ears ago, a certain Mr. A. It. Watson ascended the famous , Mauna Lioa Volcano in the Ha waiian Islands, in order to watch an eruption which was beginning, i The party consisted of five peoplo. | Nearing the tree line, Mr. Watson left his companions in order to examine the southern cone. Suddenly there came a great gush of lava which ran down close by him, and, dividing into two, hem med him in on an island surrounded by rivers of fire. It was an awful situation, but Mr. atson was equal to it; Near him was a thicket of small, straight trees of the kind known as iron w'ood, a timber which is inten sely hard and tough. He at once set to worki with his knife to make a pair of stills. All night he worked, and by morn ing they were ready. Mountin? them, lie walked boldly through the broad river of molten rock.

THE FARM. 4 ( BARRIER FOR ROOT BORER. I In America a barrier of wire gauze, I such as is used in fly screens, ia ■ found to he very effective in prevent ing canker worms and other insects from crawling from the ground u? the trunks of trees. From the des cription (says an exchange) it should be equally efficacious against the Australian root-borer. A strip oi wire gauze, 4 to 6 in. wide is wrap ped around the trunk of a tree. It iet tied only at the to?, and a little cloth or similar material put under it so that there will be no cracks or , openings through which the worms can crawl. The lower part of the . strip is bent out from tha trunk so ; that there is a big space under which the insects can gather ; also, the ; wire is so far out that there is no danger of the insects caching the end and crawling up. When a worm starts to crawl up he keeps on the trunk until he reaches the wire, then he wanders around in the cage in stead of walking down the wire to the edge and crawling up ...

Mixed Editorial Figures. • r» • For many years there was nn edi tor of a local paper in e. little Wisconsin town who was a source I of perennial joy to his readers. He j mixed his figures worse than an I absconding cashier. It is on re cord in his flies, preserved by an appreciative local reader, that one week, while rebuking some heinous charge by the Opposition, he announ ced that "chickens," like two-edged swords, ofttimes come home to roost." On another occasion, in handling the case of a contempor ary, he said, "Thus, the black lie, issuing from his base throat, be comes a boomerang- to his hand, and he is hoist by his own pe tard, and finds himself a marked man." Perhaps the man never rose to greater heights in his speciality than when, penning an editorial on the sncredness of the fireside, he spoke of the faithful watch-dog or the good wife standing at the door to welcome the home-coming mas ter with honest bark," though many readers preferred his reference to the "beacon li...

SWIMMING AT LAKE MARMA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914

SWIMMING AT LAKE M&RM Mr. F. Beaurepaire organiser of swim ming,, visited Murtoa on the 22nd inst. in connection with the Education De partment's movements for the establish ment of swimming classes wherever practicable. In company with the head teacher he inspected the dam scooped out in the North Park, and came to the same conclusion as most other people— that it was quite unsuitable. The lake, however, made a strong appeal to him. Subsequently he met and addressed a number of gentlemen from the Urban Trust, Progress Committee, and School Committee, who had assembled at the invitation of the head-teacher. I He explained that the Education De partment set great value on the teaching of swimming. It developed the child ren physically, mentally and morally. It was also a delightful recreation, especially in a hot climate like that of Murtoa. As an evidence of the popu larity of swimming he quoted figures showing that in j6io-ii there were 71 school classes, and in 1913-14 the...

At the Melbourne sheepshin snles last week, all crossbreds advanced ^d per lb. and a similar advance took place in spring lambskins. It has been decided by the Federal auihoriiies to suspend the naturalisation j of Germans and Austro-Hungarians.
