NATURALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 November 1914
NATURALISATION. In Tuesday's Argus the following letter appears from Rev. Pastor Peters, who is well known in Murtoa Sir,—In "The Argus" of the 29th inst., Senator Pearce is reported to have stated in the Senate :—" Australia could make all the naturalisation laws it liked, but Germany would say that the natura lised person was their subject j and if German troops landed in Australia and a naturalised German came within their ambit, and was given an order and refused to obey, the penalty was death." Allow me to say that when I left Germay 37 years ago my connection with the fatherland was severed officially, as the document of which I append a translated copy will prove. No doubt many naturalised Germans will possess similar documents. Now, Sir, " If Ger man troops landed in Australia," I would show them my " release," and I thev could never force me to obey their j order. -Yours, &C., W. PETERS, Lutheran Minister.

Furs by the Million. 1 LONDON'S WONDERFUL MARKET ^Leading from Cannon Street, and close to Southwark Bridge, is a | tinv street. College Hill by name, which is the centre of interest for j the fur-traders of the world. Here, in a small public auction-room, men of all nationalities are meeting daily for a fortnight, buying up mil lions of skins, from that of the house cat—ranging in price from a few* coppers to half a crown—to £■500 skin- of the silver fox, or the almost extinct sea-otter. And yet there is not a skin to be seen ! . Visitors merely see a hundred or so men—Germans, French, Americans, Russians, with a sprinkling of the Asiatic races—all more or less prosperous-looking, seated at tiers of long desks like schoolboys, each with a catalogue of the sale before him. There is no noise, no confusion, just the quiet announcements of the auc tioneer, who calls out the various items for sale. Business is brisk, for the buyers know to a few shill ings what the skins are -worth to t...
An Emergency Envelope. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
An Emergency Envelope Occasionally a person has use for a long envelope a.nd if none is at hand, two smaller envelopes, says Mr. W. M. Braly, will answer the purpose as well. Cut the right end from one and the left end from the other and place one inside of the other so that the open ends will lap, and paste them at the edge. In this way an envelope of the desired length may be made. A German "farmer was in search of a horse. ; "I've got just the horse for yon/' said the dealer. "He's five years old, sound as a nut, and goes ten' miles without stopping." The German threw his head sky ward. "Not for me," he said, "not for me. I lif eight miles from town, and mit dot horse I should haf to valk back two miles." The German Emperor sent a mag nificent gold cup and' a beautiful Dresden china vase and clock-to the Royal Yacht Squadron, to be raced for by yachts : of above -15 metres duriag the Cowea week.
Cork Kept Away from Opening. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
Cork Kept Away from Opening. ? When trying to extract a cork without the aid of a corkscrew it often happens that the cork is for ced into the bottle. The result is that every lime the bottle is in verted the cork is drawn into the neck of the boliie and stops the liquid from running out. To pre vent this, bend a piece of sprintr wire into the shape shown, and insert it in the bottle neck. The wire form should be long onough to extend slightly into the bottle. When the bottle is inverted the cork will, according to Mr. .T. J. J\"olar, the inventor of the device, be kept back from the neck and there will' always be an opening, re gardless of the position taken by the cork. Of course, this cannot be used in bottles containing corrosive liquids or acids.
Deadly French. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
Deadly French. 1 When Mark Twain was a young re porter in San Francisco he made up his mind to learn the French language. He did not want to go to the expense 01 a teacher ; and so he bought a grammer and conversa- I tion book, and set to work. Be fore breakfast he poured over the lessons: late in the evening he was at it again; and every available mo ment of the day he employed with equal assiduity. He soon began to look about for opportunities to make use of his new accomplishment. Accordingly be began to eat at a French res taurant once a week. One day, as he and his room mate were coming out of the res taurant, they found on the sidewalk just outside the door a Fronch | man. He was asking first one passer-by and then another the way to a certain street, but no one understood him. That was Mark's chance. The Frenchman looked at him with wistful eyes, and began to talk. Mark listejied attentively. Three or four times the stranger was compelled to repeat his question ; then Mark se...

Thief-proof Satchel for Paymasters. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
Thief-proof Satchel for. Paymasters. A satchel with" a burglar-alarm at tachment is one of the latest ideas for protecting bank messengers and - paymasters from thioves. Inside the satchel are bells and a revolver loaded with blank cartridges, under control of a me chanism similar to the combination lock on a safe. As long as the sat chel is in the hands of the mes- I senger, it is quiet; ) but as soon as he lets go of it, the bells begin to ring and the revol ver is fired. Such a thief-proof satchel, weighing 81b., has recently been patented.—" Popular Mechanics'."

Owen Dugdale, the wealthy owner of an estate in Leinster ; an artist, journalist, and idler, and an impul sive Irishman, has mapped out lor 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 Hustchuk. Shortly 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 c...

PATH1 R. CHAPTER XVI. IN SIGHT OP THE PROMISED LAND. The horses had shown more or less terror when the earth trembled, but they were bo tired it did not take much to quiet them. Besides, Vladimir was on hand to exercise his soothing influence over the beasts. "To your seat, master," he said. The pursuers must be very close at hand, and it would be dangerous to tarry. Again progress was resumed, and the scene of the barrier left behind. Dugdale breathed easier. Surely so long as they had "Vladimir with them they had little reason, to be worried ; his ingenuity could accom plish that which the lack of speed in their horses failed to gain, and'^jGene ral Gratscheff would find a wman worthy of his metal in the Don Cos sack. Then came the roar of anger and the maledictions that announced the arrival of the horsemen at the scene of the late avalanche. It must have been music to Vladi mir's heart. Doubtless his back,where the cruel lash had ontfe been laid, and which burned ever since, fel...
Seventy-one Pair of Trousers. STRANGE AND VINDICTIVE BEQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
Seventy-one Pair of Trousers. STRANGE AND VINDICTIVE BEQUESTS. A well-known citizen of Brooklyn., alike renowned for his wealth and eccentricity, died a short time ago, and his last will and testament was found by his sorrowing relatives, with whom he had been at odds during his lw'e, to contain the fol lowing curious bequest : "I own seventy-one pairs of trousers. It is my desire that they be sold by pub lic auction after my death, and that the proceeds of their sale shall bo distributed among the deserving poor of my parish. They must, however, be disposed of severally to dillerent bidders, no single indi vidual being permitted to purchase more than one pair." These direc tions were duly carried out by the heirs-at-law. The seventy-one pairs Of trousers wcn-c Mucrc««i vely knock ed down to as many purchasers, and their price was handed to the parochial authorities. A few days after the sale one of the buyers took it into his head to make a careful examination of his newly-acquired...
CHAPTER XVII. AT THE GATES OF RUSSIA.. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
Chapter xvii: I AT THR GATES OF RTISSTA. It was not a part of Dugdale'a plan to let Isolde read bis fears up on his face. For her sake, then, he assumed a satisfied appearance which wholly be lied the alarm which raged within his heart, now that the crisis was close at hand, when their fortunes must be decided. It had become a serious matter with our friend, whether success or failure resulted from their efforts to slip across the border by means of an incorrect passport. His own personal liberty was at. stake, but this was not what wor ried him most. He did not want that ogre of a baron, representing the al most omnipotent power of the Czar, to overtake this fair fugitive ; for it seemed to him that in the event of, this happening disaster must over whelm not only Isolde's hopes, but also the delightful chateaux d'Es pagne he had of late b«en 60 indus triously rearing.

Animal's Self-curative Instincts. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 November 1914
Animal's Self-curative Instincts. It is well known that animals pos sess strong self-curative instincts. Dogs and cats when indisposed will eat grasses that have a medicinal action usually of an emetic or pur gative nature. The fibrous-rooted' wheat-grass, Triticum caninum, is frequently eaten by the former. If an animal has been injured it is noticed continually to lick the affected part, which, says Dr. T. Wilson Parry, in some admirable notes on the subject, is a somewhat crude combination of our modern fomentation and massage. Prehis toric man would most certainly have licked his wounds. Later, when lie had lost some of his earliest animal instincts, he would observe what animals did and imitate them. Thus the ,uso of hellebore was believed to have been discovered from the goat. Yii£il tells us that dittany was "eaten by wild goats when they were shot with darts." Pliny tells us that bleeding was taught man by the hippopotamus, " that intelligent animal finding himself plethoric...
