WHEAT FOR THE MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 October 1914

WHEAT FOR THE MILL. ♦ I Millers complain that farmers will not sell wheat to them. This is the re sult of the fixing of the price, which action was taken in order to "get at " speculators who were suspected of an intention to take advantage of the public in a time of scarcity. The farmer was not to be injured, it was declared ; he was entitled to a fair price. Apparently the farmer does not consider the fixed price at all fair. Possibly he wants some of the wheat for seed; possibly he hopes fcr a better price ; possibly both these considerations are are in his mind. Mr. Adatnson, chair man of the board, however, thinks he is acting "deliberately and out of cussedness." The board cannot compel the farmer to sell ; but the Ministry can, and the Attorney-General is to be approached. If there should be any illegitimate holding with the aim- of ex ploiting the public, the Ministry, as the law directs, will do well to take action to check it ; but it would be a bold step to prosecute the ...

NONE OF 410,000,000 KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

NONE OF 410,000,000 KILLED. Two hundred and ninety-nine rail ways of the United States, operat ing a mileage equal to the com bined railways of the United King dom, Germany, France, Austria, and Italy, went through the fiscal year ended June 30th, 1913, with out a single fatality to a passen ger in a train accident. The railwaj'S, which oporate to gether 120,901 miles of line, consti tute more than two-thirds of the operating companies making their annual reports to the ' Bureau ^of Railway News and Statistics.' During the year the railways thus reporting complete immunity car ried a total of 409,S08,488 passon gers. An amusing incident was witness ed on Braid Hills Golf Course. A gentleman, evidently a tyro, was going over the course, making futile attempts to propel the ball in the direction required, and, indeed, some times missing it. His caddie meekly followed at his heels while he con tinued his exertions, and eventually the gentleman broke one of his | clouds, At this he turn...

Confessions of a Court Photographer. ROYALTY BEFORE THE CAMERA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

Confessions of a Court Photographer. ROYALTY BEFORE THE CAMERA. That Royalty, when they have their photographs specially taken, should order a series of pictures showing them in happy and smiling poses for the members of their family, while for the public they re servo those depicting- them in a grave and serious mood, is but an other illustration of the formality and etiquette which practically for bids them to appear to the public other than dignified. | When, many years ago, the Kal serin, then Crown Princess of Ger many, had her photograph taken, together with that of her eldsst son, the present Crown Prince, when he was about three months old, she posea altogether in twenty-five riif i ferent altitudes before Mr. Adolf Baumann, Court photographer to many of the reigning houses of Europe. "The Princess," says Mr. Bau mann, in some reminiscences in ' The Strand Magazine,' "asked me to h-ring proofs to her hotel. When 11 went there later she looked over the proofs and selected fou...

When next I come I hope the Tun nel will be dug, or perhaps I shall come by aeroplane. Anything • is better than that terrible Channel.

Tho policemen do not swear at those who inquire the way, I as ours in Paris do ; and the misses, i the seaside miss—I love them all ! In France you English are sup posed to take your pleasures sadly. Yes, I thinks it not, as you say. I went to Blackpool, and I know. The mill misses, how they laugh, how they dance, and bow they enjoy themselves ! But I do not like your English public-houses. They aro ugly and hot, and they smell—terrible ! I can not drink in them. You manage many things bettor in England than we do in France. Your ...

LIBERALS AND ELECTIONS. EXPENDITURE OF LOANS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

LIBERALS AND ELE0TI9NS. EXPRNOITURE OF LOANS. When ihey record their votes in some three weeks' time, Victorian electors will decide, amongst n'ber things, how great sums of loan money are to he spent. In a recent Issue, the "Age" took ihe L?bor aovernments of New South Wales and Western Australia sternly to task for reckless finance. We are ahoui to ^nier on a period of heavy loan flotation, and even more imponant than the extent of Labor's Lurrowi-.gs is ihe wav in which it lends to spent money. This is more important, be cause for the moment all Australia is for a borrowing policy, is adopting gieat Britain's war watchword, " Business as usual," and is determined that it will play its part as well on the industrial as on the military battlefield. For the moment then the question is not " How much shall we borrow?" hut "How shall we spend out loans?" To the first question Mr. Fisher and Mr. Cook, the Liberal and the Laborite, return pretty much the same answer, one forced on them ...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN »0F THE CZAR,# 0 R, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. —I fty St. George Rathbome, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. SYNOPSIS OP PREVIOUS PARTS. Owen Dugdale, the wealthy owner of an estate in Leinster ; an artist, journalist, and idler, and an impul sive Irishman, has mapped out for himself a month's journey in South ern Russia. His passport, through a blunder on the part of the officials, calls for Owen Dugdale and wife, a luxury he has never possessed. Naturally this leads to strange and ridiculous complications as in Bohe mian fashion he wanders over the plains and mountains of Russia. Evening is setting in as his telega driven by Vladimir, a Don Cossack, who fears neither man nor devil, ap proaches the town of Rustchuk. Shortlj after passing a mounted mili tary, officer and two Cossacks, our | traveller discovers a wrecked telega in his path, On investigation Owen is startled by the discovery that the luckless vehicle is occupied by a lady and he becomes co...

RICE-THROWING AT WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

I RICE-THROWING AT WEDDINGS, The origin of rice-throwing- at wed dings is accounted for by a quaint Chinese legend. A great sorcerer, Chao, became jealous of another sorcerer, a wo man, Peach Blossom, and thereby conceived si plan to destroy her. fie persuaded her parent to give her in marriage to her supposed son, and craftily chose the most unlucky day for the wedding—the day when the golden rheasant" was in the ascendant—so that, when the bride entered the red chair, the spirit bird would kill her with its beak. Peach Blossom, however, prudent ly gave directions for rice to be scattered at the door, and thus she passed out unscathed, while the spirit-bird was busy eating what she had provided for it. Some women seem to know just where to put things. They put on their hats at the right angle, they put on an air of innocence at the right moment, and they put their furniture and husbands in their right places. It is wonderful. The Sundays of man's life Threaded together on time's st...

PART 5. CHAPTER XIII. THE SHADOW OF THE BARON. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

PATtT 5. CHAPTER XTTI. THE SHADOW OF THE BARON. Just as the Cossack had so simply said, the telega awaited them in a / retired spot beyond the fork of the road. . By the time they reached it the clouds parted and allowed the moon an opportunity to peep out, which . gave Dugdale a chance to cast his eyes over the outfit Vladimir had provided. He made no remark, since time wis so valuable and every minute count ed : but as he tossed the two bags into the vehicle he saw the driver had the saddles, just as he promised, two of the queer Cossack build, and the third a genuine larlv's siddle. which Owen had not believed couiu be found within fiftj miles of Rust ch.uk. Vladimir was indeed a wonder, and had a peculiar ability for ferreting out things. j There were three horses attached to the waggon, something seldom seen ; but a Cossack could handle half a dozen of the beasts with greater ease than any Roman horseman ever ex hibited in those days of Nero and Caesar, when chariot races were ...

An Incident of Talavera. ♦ . Tftlavera, roujjuv , «... 27 and 28, 1809, was most exhaust ing fight for both armies. The Spanish July heat and the long continued fighting had worn out Frcnch and British alike. Long before noon on the second day hos tilities ceased by common consent. The English received rations of bread and wine, the French started pre paring a cooked meal with their usual culinary alacrity. A small stream, a tributary of the Tngus, traversed the battlefield and separated the rival armies. The scorching sun made this the Mecca of both parties ; the}- gradually ap proached the brook, throwing down m'tskefs as a guarantee of good faith, and eagerly drank of its waters. Chat and chaff were freely interchanged, brandy - fias'*s nnd wineskins mutually offered, and that chivalrous friendliness outside the hours of the actual conflict which so often characterised the relations of the French and British in the Peninsula was strikingly mani fested. While the hale and hearty w...

CHAPTER XIV. THE MAD FLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

CHAPTER XIV. THE MAD FLIGHT. That name might be potent enough to work wonders, but since Dugdulo did not even know who the baron was, he somehow could not under stand how their condition had grown worse. Gratschefl was the man to whom he naturallj looked for all trouble. Of course, the baron came in for a share of his hatred, because of him Isolde had been made to suffer ; and yet he did not kmorr but that he ought to thank this cruel persecutor, since but for him he, Dugdale, would never hare met the one who now sr.t so near him, and who filled a vacant spot in hfs life so wonderful ly well. Vladimir also knew that bugle call. He had heard it oft when with the fighting general, and never without a warm glow ; but now it possessed n nf ik. -— wigniovuuuc, oiuue nits heart was being weaned from its birthright, allegiance to Russia. Looking back, Dugdale could see some signs of commotion within that space where the citadel and the bar racks of the soldiers were situated, and he knew o...

CHAPTER XV. VLADIMIR STARTS A LANDSLIDE [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

CHAPTER XV. VLADIMIR STARTS A LANDSLIDE The night wore on. It would never be forgotten by at least one of the participants in the wild ride. Dugdale might have thought it a pratty tough experience, but that consideration for himself was entirely overwhelmed by regard for his com panion. He insisted upon using what rough cushions the telega boasted so that they would in a measure protect Isolde from cruel contact with sun dry sharp edges of the seat and side of the swaying, bounding vehicle, during those hurricane bursts of speed. She saw what ho was doing and demurred. "Ah, monsieur, you rob yourself. I cannot, will not, allow you to do so much," was the way in which she expressed the feeling of gratitude that- swelled within her heart Dug-dale was courteous, but firm. He meant to have his way in this case, at least. He even declared, with the utmost sang froid, that he particularly enjoyed being punched in the back and ri'os by those project ing corners. Why, it was as good as a ma...
