Photographing Moving Bullets. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

Photographing Moving Bullets. i Bloving pictures have unlimited possibilities, apparently, for the study of rapidly-moving objects. An apparatus capable of making pic tures at the rate of 100,000 a se cond has been. made. With it seventy-two pictures of a revolver bullet were taken while moving ten inches. Pictures of a. bullet passing through a stick of wood showed a curious condition. The bullet pass sd completely through the thin stick and was woll on its way beyond before the wood showed any signs of distress. Then some tiny splinters started out, following the bullet; the stick bogan to split, and after the bullet had proceeded some distance | the stick suddenly fell to pieces. | No camera shutters are fast enough J to take pictures at anything like j thi6 speed, so no shutter was used. Instead a series of electric sparks ' was flashed, tho sparks following' one another at the rato of 100,000 a second, each spark making a ' picture. The film was mounted on a wheel about three f...

MARKETING COLONIAL PRODUCE. MAJOR NORTON DISCOURSES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

MAJOR NORTON DISCOURSES. Probably no more distinguished per ion.ige could be interviewed at the present time on the subject of market ng colonial produce than Major A E, M. Norton, D.S.O., F.R.G.S., F.G.I In addition to his business pursuits, the Major has had a distinguished military career, having gained the D.S 0. in the Boer war. For seven years he acted as Trade Commissioner in London for South Australia, and in that capacity he had every opportunity of watching the operations of speculators, agents, middle men and sharks in juggling with the colonial produce consigned to Lon don. Receniiy Major Norton volun tarily resigned the S. A. appointment, and took up the Managing Directorship of the Bristol and Dominions Producets I Association, a concern formed partly with New Zealand and partly with English capital to develop the frozen meat trade. At the Mechanics' Institute on Wed nesday af'.ernoon several residents in terested in the marketing of frozen meat and other colonial prod...

LATEST. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

LATEST. Demonstrations have taken placo at sea, and street fighting at Scutari. Foiled in their march on Calais, the Germans may make Bologne their ob jective. They are fiercely striving to break through the Allied lino. Along the Belgian front fighting has almost ceased, the whole district hav ing been converted by tho Belgian en gineers into a vast lake. •Nieuport has been evacuated by the enemy. Lord Charles Beresford thinks that Britain will need another million men. The war expenditure last week was £7,168,829. It has been suggested that Japan be invited to send troops to Europe. Authority has been given fur the spening of ^£35.000 during the next 12 months on the Cavendish to Toolondo railway. Perparations are now being made for the building of the line.

"Greyhounds in the Slips." [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

" Greyhounds in the Slips." The moment one attempts to deal, with the anti quity of the greyhound one is literally embarrassed by the wealth of material to hand. It is amusing to notice how each young writer in the history of the domestic dog sooner or later makes the great discovery that the grey hound is an extremely an cient variety. There is something quite refreshing in the joy the great "find" causes—to one person at anv rate. The discoverer straightway announces the amazing fact that a dog almost identical with a Waterloo Cup winner was beloved by the Greeks ! True, quite true, oh ! industrious searcher in the archives of the past; but, since we- are dealing with doggy matters, may I in doggy language urge you to " try back," It is true that the dog's graceful form appealed very strongly to tho Greeks—thoy would have ad- j mired an English thoroughbred—but they again were only adopting a race far, far older than themselves. "Try back." J How far ? Now that is the dhliculty, b...

WAR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

WAR NOTES. Turkey is now at war against the Allies. Half a million trained Turks are mobilised, whereof 100,000 are in the Caucasus, 200,000 on the Bosphorus, 40.000 in Palestine, in addition to other irregulars. Four Russian armies, each 250,000 strong, ciossed the Vistula on Saturday, between Warsaw and Ivangorod. These forces are distinct from the great Russian armies in the north and south. The Germans and Austrian armies are everywhere outnumbered, and are retreating. Przemysl has been reduced to ruins, and the Austriaos are reported to be preparing to evacuate it in the hope of saving the garrison. The persistency with' which the Germans are maintaining their attacks along the front stretching from Nieuport .to Arras indicates that they have not given up hope of being able to cut their way through the Allied Armies and march on to Calais. The Kaiser is very anxious to fly the German eagle in Calais for more reasons than one The capture of Calais would cause much jubilation in ...

"WHITE-ROLL FEAST. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

" WHITE-ROLL FEAST. At Potsdam recently, the Kaiser took part in the annual "white-roll feast" of the model infantry battal ion of the German Army. The feast is the one occasion in each year tvhen wheat bread instead of black army "commisbrod" is served to the battalion, together with a good dinner of meat, stewed fruits, vege tables, and "moibowle,"'or-hock cup. The Kaiser, in accordance with tradition, sat down among the sol diers, broke "white rolls" with them, and then drained a tumberful of "maibowle" from the glass of a soldier who had already drunk from it. The model battalion of 600 offi cers and men is made up of two picked men from each infantry re giment in the army except the Ba varian Corps.—' Glasgow News.'

LATEST ENGINE OF WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

LATEST ENGINE OF WARFARE. A terrible weapon of, warfare has been. invented. In the ""Naval An nual" for 1914, there is a descrip tion that might almost be described as devilish. It is of the Leon torpedo mine, which has now been acquired and is being manufactured by a British firm. This engine is so constructed that it can be set to hover between any depths below the surface that may be desired. When placed in the water it has a Blight negntive buoyancy, and sinks until automati cally a propeller is brought into action which drives it upwards again. It can be used in the open sea by any type of ship, or, in the case of tidal harbours, it could be released by a vessel outside so as to make its way with the tide into the anchorage, and perhaps destroy shipping there. A touch on the deadly steel "whiskers" which pro ject from its upper surface, and the enemy would be sent to the bot tom.

It is in the form of a clock, mea suring six inchts -high and eight inches long, with three sets of pi geonhole-?, one series for the months of the year, the second for the days in the month, and the third for each quarter of an hour in the day. The business man makes a memo randum of his appointment on a card, and drops it into the pigeon hole, no matter what the time is, 1 the month, the day, or quarter-hour. At the right time the machine rings a bell, and throws out the card, : thus reminding him of the engage ment.

Facts About the Navy. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

Facts About the Navy. | 1 As Tennyson says "The fleet of England is her all in all." Battleships form the best fighting line of all sea power; without them organised sea warfare is at an end. The torpedo is a most potent en pine of destruction, but it can only bo employed within a certain range. The energy at the muzzle of a battleship's gun is estimated at 45,000 foot-tons. A cruiser acts as the eyes of a fleet. She has a very high speed, and a wide radius of action con ferred by a big coal endurance. Units of the Dreadnought class carry 800 projectiles, whose total weight is 242 tons. A very much wider area of broad side armour is always disposed be low the water-line of a ship than above it. The barbette—the most efficient means of protecting the guns and gunners in a warship—is a circular fortress of steel with a bomb-proof roof, the whole revolving upon a cylinder which goes right down to the bottom of the ship. An "A" class torpedo is 20 feet long, 18 inches in diameter. Its s...

It's so healthy, in fact, that the people who live in it would go on doing so for ever, if ihey did not commit suicide or get accidentally killed or poisoned. At any rate, the sanitary' people who eongressed there not long ago say its climate is the finest on i earth, and that its people possess more stamina to the square inch .than any other place, which is just a variation, of course, on the old gag about brains. Still, between earthquakes, light ning storms, and live wires, the place has its full share of excite ments, and there are always heaps of ways of getting killed besides dying from disease.

THE DAIRY. POINTERS IN CALF RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

THE DAIRY. £ POINTERS IN CALF RAISING. A great many dairymen take the calf immediately from the cow, navei allowing it to suck. Others ■will al low the, calf to taV- part of the milk for three or four days. In any event, it is essential that the calf shall have the first milk from a fresh cow, as the colostrum is necessary in start ing the digestive system of the calf. The calf should be fed at least three times a day for the first wees of its life. The quantity of whole milk fed to the calf must be deter mined by the size of the calf, but at first should not be more than two or three pints per meal, and gradually increased. If the calf is left on the cow for the first four or five days, she should be milked out so that the calf will not get too much milk. At the end of the first week, it might receive four or five pints at morning ; two to four at noon, and four to six at night. Many farmers cannot be bothered feeding the calf at mid day. In such cases the calf for the first three ...

MELBOURNE CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

W1E13H1JRME G'JP. Twenty-eight horses faced the starter for this great rice on Tuesdiy. The betting changed a lot during the course of the day. At opening, St. Carwyne was a hot favorite, with Uncle S-un next in demand. Towards ihe start there was a strong com nission for Uiva's Isle, and he quickly firm-id. St. Carwyne, however, retained his place at the head of the quotations ; but Uncle Sain dropped back to third position. Nearly all the others had friends at one price or another. There was little delay at the post, and punctually on time the large field was sent away 011 its journey. After going about a furlong Pike was unable to hold the top weight back, and he took up the running. Along the river side he was joined by Posinatus, and they were together until nearing the sheds. There Giru ran past him, but was immediately passed himself by Sir Alwynton, who was first into the straight. Kingsburgh, who over the last mile always occupied a prominent position, finished strongly, an...

Namur; Before the War. THE GATE OF THE ARDENNES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914

Namur; Before the War. -4 TOE GATE OF THE ARDENNES. Having a desire to explore the romantic and beautiful region of the Ardennes a little more in detail than I had been able to do on several former brief visits to Bel ' gium, I this year resolved, after ma- j ture reflection, to make Namur my head-quarters. The town lies at the junction, or rather at the intersec tion, of two great main routes— that from Luxemburg to Brussels, and that from Liege to Paris by way of Charleroi. An express train makes the journey to Brussels from Namur in less than an hour, while j the distance to Liege is rather less. Moreover you can reach Dinant in slightly over half an' hour by train, while you have the alternative of the more leisurely but altogether charm ing trip by the Namur-Dinant "'Luxe" steamer (about 3 hours up and 2 hours down). A FINE EXCURSION' CENTRE, I had no cause to regret my choice of Namur as an excursion centre. It occupies a charming position at . the junction of the romantic Meu...

PATRIOTIC DANCE. A patriotic entertainment, held at the Mechanics' Hall on Thursday evening, 29th ult., resolved itself into a very pretty juvenile fancy-dress ball, in which the local pupils of Miss Jessie Thorns showed the wonderful pro ficiency they have attained under her tuition in a very short time. Some advanced pupils from Horsham gave nice artistic displays of dancing, and the spectacle was thoroughly enjoyed by a large attendance of visitors on the stage and in the gallery. The room was nicely decorated with bunting, in true patriotic style. The young folk • enjoyed themselves and entertained the spectators until ix 30; after which their elders had a few dances and a very pleasant evening was concluded. Amongst the fancy dresses of the little ones were — Eddio Gulbin—Clown Florrie Gulbin—Kismet Ollio T'urvey—Britania Mary Turvoy—Fairy Dorris Turvey—Erin Mary O'Loughlin—Poppy Margery Walker—Spring Kathleen Utber—Irish Dancing Girl Ollie Murphy—Moonstruck Eileen Murphy—Dutch...
