Blood Will Tell. AN EXCITING DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 February 1914

Blood Will Tell. f AN EXCITING DISCOVERY. A discovery concerning tho char acteristics of blood which has been made by Dr. K. T. Reichert, promises to revolutionise many things. For instance, it may ren der the murderer easy of detection, and tho divorce riddlo, where thero nre children, easy of solution. Un til now there has been no absolute ly reliable method of distinguish ing- tho blood stains of man, ani mal, bird, or reptile, but now we are assured the difference can be showu even between tho blood stains of man and man ! We are told by Mr. A. St. George Joyce, to whom we are indebted for our report, that Doctor Roi chert, in his experiments, has been able to differentiate between the blood of various human beings, to an extent that he has actually dis covered a difference in the shape of blood crystals of one man as compared witli those of another. But his research worto lias not yet been developed to tho point where this differentiation can bo deter mined in the blood of all ...

Ways of Creating Life. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

Ways of Creating Life. V According to Dr. Charlton I>ns tian, the creation of life from non living mutter is an assured fact-. "Living organisms can be obtain ed almost nt will," says Hr. Bhs tian, in his work on "The Origin of Life," from solutions which have been heated in hermetically sealed vessels to a temperature very much higher than that which is known to be their thermal death point. , This leaves no further room for doubt upon the much-disputed point whether or not non-living matter is still capable of coming into cxist ence. " Remarkable , as it may seem, it docs not require any large amount* of scientific knowledge, or' any cost ly laboratory equipment to create life artificially. According to Dr. Jiaslian tho miracle can be per formed with a little pationco in your own hoifie.

The Railway Whistle. 1 The Leicester and Swannington Railway, now owned by the Mid land Railway, lias celobrated its seventieth anniversary. It was oh this line that the steam whistle was first used. ' One of the old "Rockets" rumbling, along the lino ran into a- cart on1 a level cross ing. The cart was smashed to bits, the horse and driver had a narrow escape. The engine-driver had sound ed his horri ; but the sound was not fierce enough to warn the car ter, who; likely enough,- after1 the fashion of country carters, was asleep on one of the shaft^. George Stephenson, , who lived in the neigh bourhood, was appealed to, and he devised the steam whistle,; which was at once adopted by all the. other lines.

Right Way to Eat Pineapples. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

Right Way to Eat Pine apples. I Pineapples used to be considered unwholesome, but in all probability this reputation wns gained because they were not eaten in Uio proper way-or were not ripe enough. Most people eat pineapples the wrong way. They paro oft the coarse, prickly outside skin and throw it away, not knowing that j the skin really contains the best part of the fruit. This outside skin i contains a large proportion of the I alkaloid principle, " bromelin," j which is the digestive ferment of the pineapple' and which is somewhat similar in its medicinal effect to pepsin. • ; The correct why to eat a 'pine apple, to got the most good from it, is Qrst to pare ofT the .rough outsido skin. Squeeze these par ings in a lemon squeezer and pour their juicc, sweetened or not, as preferred, over the pared pineapple when cut in slices. In this ' way all the powerful "brojnelin" 'is saved, and 'enhances the flavour of tho pineapple itself. Pineapples should always lie eaten after meals, ...

SIR HUGO S WILL. A TALE OF AN OLD OAK CHEST. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

SIR HUGO S WILL A TALE OP AN OLD OAK CHEST. In a great gloomy, tapestried chamber in his ancestral home of Dacre Towers lay Sir Hugo Dacre, _ dying. There ' were three other persons in the room ; the iamily doctor who had just arrived in answer to a ■ hasty message sent by the dying man ; a professional nurse ; and a young man bearing a slight resem blance to Sir Hugo. For some time before the lawyer's arrival the baro net had seemed to be sinking rapidly, but as soon as he knew tho former was in the room a new strength seemed to come to him. Raising himself slightly on his el bow, b)3 addressed him in clear firm tones : " Put everyone out of the room, Thompson. I want to speak with you alone." The nurse instantly quitted the a partment. A heavy frown darkened the young man's face ; he made no attempt to move. The lawyer cros sed over to where he stood bj the oriel window. " Pardon me, Mr. Dacre, but your • uncle wishes for a private talk with me. Will you kiindly leave us for a lit...

For Nerve Sufferers. A —,— Dr. Edwin Ash, author of "Ner ves anil the Nervous," has written a little book in which lie deals 1 with tho effect of ill-considered hustling, so common to-day. His panacea" is the acquisition of thy habit of self-m-.istery in tho littlo things of life. Three very import ant energy wasters are : Indigest ible and hurried lunches, too tight clothing, needless worrying about details of domestic, professional, and business life. Dr. Ash says more must lie spent in eating, and less meat oaten. lie adds : " You should not lie in bod after you , wake in the morning, and you should not indulge in naps. There is this ! to be said in favour of tft\; early j cup of tea—that when it forms tho ! awakening sign al the mere act of drinking it is likely to rouse tho j mental find physical activities and i prevent the desire for further slum- | ber."

CLEVER OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

CLEVER OPERATION. Joseph Anderson, a young West Aus tralian miner, has just returned 10 Free mantle from .London, after having und^rgi.ne an amazing operation.. .

Surgeons at St. Bartholomew's Hos pital, in London, succeeded in remov ing .the rock. The eye had to be pulled downwards and outwards towards the left ear, and even then so large was the fragment that there was the greairst difficulty in withdrawing it through the orbit. Although his brain must have been considerably hcerated, Anderson suf fers no headaches or other nervous symptoms.

Gas in the Cavities of Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

Oas in the Cavities of Trees. , i . . . Professor J. A. Ferguson, of the Pennsylvania Stale College, rc-1 ports a curious phenomenon connect- | ed with the cutting of hardwood! trees in the Ozark Mountains. Cavi- J ties near the base of the trees arc | often found to contain gas. When these cavities are cut into by the t oak tie cutters of the region the' gas escapes with a whistling sound j showing it to be under pressure, ! and if lighted it will burn with a faint yellow flame. The sides of the cavi tics containing gas are in all i cases darkened, and look as though | seared with a hot iron. The popu- j lar belief of the district is that I these trees are connected through! their roots with a subterranean ' supply of natural gas, and the land on which they grow is valued ac cordingly. An e.xaniinat.ion of the gas collected from a. cotton wood tree was made 1\y Professor lUish ong, of the University of Kansas, and tit was found to be substantially the samo as natural gas, with the ...

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. A NEW IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

A NEW IDEA. A nitihod of dealing with the, rabbit pest thai Mr. W. Patterson, nl Hare field, near Waggn, has found effective, may be commended to the no:ice of landowners. Mr". Pjttersori, who has resided at Harefield for forty seven years, has tried by every known mean* to exterminate the rabbits, but no method has proved so satisfactory as that of steaming out the burrows. His plan may be described as follows :— Take a traction engine into the paddock, and put the steam pipe into one of the burrows as far as it will reach. Cover the pipe over with clay to prevent the steam from blowing out. Let the steam 011 lightly lor a while, so as to discover all the outlets, and do not be surprised to see even this dose of steam send the rabbits out, scampering for their lives. Close all the openings shown by the. escaping steam, then turn on the steam at full force. In less than five minutes every rabbit in the burrow will be dead. The traction engine can be run from one burrow to another li...

TOO MUCH FAVOURITISM. Jt is nut always good to bo tho pet of the ladies. This is the lesson that was learnt by little Archie, aged 9, and with a lace frill round his neck, at a children's picnic. Iattle Archie Irad long golden curls, and a velvet suit, and the ladies just! loved him. Tea-time came, and they all besieged him. Cnkes they gave him, and ices, and wafers, and choco lates, and buns, and lemonade. Thoy were most pressing, and Archie liked it. A little later, however, Archie went into a quii t corner to think, and there, with one hand 011 his head, .and one on his sash, a dainty lady found him. "Wh.\, Archie, pet," she exclaimed, "what's the matter ? Haven't you got all you want ?" "Yes, I've got nil I want, please," murmured Archie, ever polite, "but, please, I don't want all I've got." As Ikey Moses was walking across the golf links he suddenly received a terrific hit on the nose from a hard driven bull. Smarting with rage and pain, he hurried across to the unwitting caus...

INDIAN SNAKE-CHARMERS AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914

INDIAN SNAKE-CHARMERS AT WORK. r Thu main contention of the suake charmer, whether he be Indian or Ked Indian, is that he is absolutely im mune from the bites of the most pois onous snakes, and the manner in which he allows himself to be bitten by a cobra or adder never fails to impress, not only the native, but al so the white man unacquainted with the tricks of these humbugs. Kor humbugs they really are, although it must be confessed that thej pro vide a very interesting and fascina-; ting entertainment. ' As a matter of fact, snake-charmers almost without exception, play either with snakes whose fangs and poison- : ous glands have been removed, or use ! Tion-poisonoOs reptiles which they ; pass of! as dangerous varieties.
