AUSTRALIA TO-DAY. THE STORY OF PROGRESS. A RICH AND EMPTY LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
V AUSTRALIA TO^DAY T 1 THE STORY OP PROGRESS. A RICH AND EMPTY LAND. BY HA.RRY S. CULLETT. It is frequently remarked that the greatest development ol the twen tieth century is to be the reawaken ing of the great Asiatic peoples, and it is forecasted by pessimistic West erners that the millions of the East may, 100 years hence, be the domin-' ant influence in the world. But j those who take this view are surely . short-sighted. It is youth that wins and a little study must convince that' 100 years hence there should be no ! more ambitious or more powerful j nations in the world than those which are now so rapidly building up in the wide, new, fertile, and, as yet, almost empty regions of the earth. We have seen in a singlo century what has been done in the United i States ; we hav.€ seen the American ! people increase in 100 years from some seven or eight million to near ly 100,000,000. And just as certain is it that in the next 100 years this wonderful performance will be equal-1 le...

THE BITER BIT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
THE BITER BIT. The " Daily Post" of Hobart is a Labor journal, which has advocated strikes to cripple the capitalist; but when its own mechanical staff struck for higher wages this is how it wailed "It is a strange thing truly that the organ of Labor should be enmeshed in an industrial trouble, but in these piping times we suppose we must be in the fashion. Our mechanical staff has seen fit to make demands on this journal which the directors (Labor, be ii noted) could not concede without signing a certificate of bankruptey " We have been strenuous in the advocacy of the just claims of unionism, but we have always maintained that the claims must be of a character that an arbitration court would be likely to entertain them. There is an end of all stability if a union can make its de mands a law, and no such principle has over been asserted by ihe Labor party, by the Trades and Labor'Council, or by an official body of representative unionism. " We offered a compromise which would have ...

TO THE EDITOR. Dear Sir,—The many absentees from tlio hall on Monday night have cattle to regret that they missed the chance of hearing a great (Ir;v!un, well staged, and performed in Srst-el iss style. Although an old resi dent I have nevi-r seen a better play staged here The only pity is that this real good company also adopte 1 the latest craze, namely, to have the piano going- all the time during the dial"guo. Tt does not matter how softly the piano is played, it is a disturbing element and kills the dialogue. Surely there is enough chance for the piano at the beginning and during the intervals. Tnis gifted company ought to he good and strong enoiiL'h to break with a had habit. Thanking you in anticipation, I am yours trulv, PLAYGOER.

At the Birchip police court, Leslie John Bevan, butcher; and Thomas Oliver, drover, boih residents of Birchip, were charged with having stolen three sheep on January 27, the property of Thomas Henry Grace. Accused pleaded not guilty, and reserved their defence. They were commited for trial at the General Sessions to be held at Donald on February 19, each being allowed bail. The threatened trouble in the meat trade did not affect the selling price of cattle at the Ballarat Sale Yards 0,1 Tuesday.

Fashions for Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
Fashions for Dogs. The very newest and most striking sartorial effect for dogs includes a gold necklet, mul a pair of patent leather shoes. Ordinary sweaters have long been fashionable for dogs, ■and some of the small beasts who ; suffer very much from the cold have been seen during the last win ter with two coverings while out on promenade. The under wrap was a j tight-fitting sweater,'- which extend ed to quite a distance over the ani mal's legs. Over this garment was worn the usual blanket coat, which was formerly considered quite sufli cient as a wrap. The fashionable small dog lias al ways its monogrammed handker chiefs, which are smartly tucked ill the pocket of its coat or sweater. Boots to be worn when it is al lowed to play in the streets or gar den, and taken off when it enters the house, aro also not infrequent ly a feature of its wardrobe.

HAWKER'S FLIGHTS. SOME OF HIS IMPRESSIONS, [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
HAWKER'S TLIOHTS. ? SOME OF HIS IMPRESSIONS, One of ihe rmny interesting phases of aviation is the acquisition of a sepse o? direction, which ro a person in the air for the first time is almomst losi. Even such an experienced man as Mr. Hawker admits to great difficulties, although he may be flying over familiar places. When he mide a call upon Lord Denman recently Mr. Hawker had the greatest difficulty in locating 1 Government House, although he has known the district all his life. He circled in the air several times looking for his objective, and it was only by picking up" the shimmering Albert Park Lake that he recognised where he was, Mr. Hawker explains that as a person rises he immediately loses ' his sense of direction. When Miss Cole" was 1,000ft. in the air with Hawker on Friday morning the aviator offered a challenge her to indicate where Esse'ndon lay from the biplane. The lady pointed in the direction of Brighton. Mr. Hawker, or any odier aviator, is in exactly the s.une...

Your Eyes are Like a Japs. WHY THEY LOOK DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
Your Eyes are Like a Japs. * — WHY THEY LiOOK DLFFERENT. We call the .Japanese "almond eyed" and the Chiueso "slit-eyed," and most of us are apt to suppose that their eyes are of entirely dif ferent shape from our own. But j such is not the case. The eyes of \ all the races are practically alike ' in shape, their dilTerencc in appear-, ance being due solely to a differ ence in the opening of the lids. Among- the Caucasians when tho eyelids are drawn open the outer and inner ends of the lids form a straight, horizontal line. The lids open wide without any special ef fort, presenting the elYect or the full eye. Among the Chinese and other Mongolians the lids do not open so far, and on this account they arc often spoken of as "slit-eyed." Al so the line from the inner to the outer corner of their eyes is riot perfectly horizontal, the outer end being slightly higher than the in-, ner corner, thus giving tho oftcct of what is termed the "almond eye." In tho Caucasian eye tho end of the ...
Painting Restored by Clever Method. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
Fainting Restored by Clever Method. Otio of tho cleverest methods of re storing a painting ever used was that applied, in New York recently in treating a canvas which, oil ac | count of its great age, had become j almost as fragile as tissue paper, ! The first step was the gluing, by means of a vegetable compound, of a thick piece of Manilla paper over the face of the painting. The pic ture was then turned over, and from its back w'as jacked tliread by thread all the rotten canvas. At the end of this operutiou all that remained of the original work was ! a delicate shell of paint glued to a i sheet of paper. A new pieco of canvas was then attaohod to the back of the paint shell by means of strong lish glue. Tho Manilla paper on tho face was easily re moved with hot water, after which there remained the painting as be fore, but mounted upon a strong new cdiiivns.
Ancient Thermometers. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
; Ancient Thermometers. • 4 • The earliest thermometers were of • the expansion typo, and were duo ; ; to llio exertions and research of Galileo. They consisted of a glitss bulb with a capillary tube attach ed, the bulb being filled with alco hol, which expanded with teni perature, the expansion being indi cated'by the movement of the alco hol iip or down the capillary. The - .scale on the thermometer was pure ly an arbitrary one, and it was iiot until IJooke, in 168.1, sug gested the. melting-point of ice and the boiling point of water that tiny attempt was made to obtain a fundamental scale of temperature. Thirty years afterwards, in 1711, Fahrenheit suggested his scale. As ' the Fahrenheit scale is still the one 1 almost universally used by Fng- ; lish and American engineers, it : may be of interest to know how Fahrenheit obtained his scale. The explanation generally accepted is d&lt;:e to the late Dr. G'amgee. The lower lixed point of the scale was determined by a mixtur...
"LUCKY" COINS SENT TO CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 February 1914
" LUCKY '* COINS SENT TO CRICKETERS. Fortunate is tho captain of a county cricket club, who lias never received a " lucky " coin. For he is as "good at tossing" as was the man who owned—and used— a two headed halfpenny, or the Hon: F.S., Jackson when he captained many teams against the Australians. : On six successive occasions he won the toss against Mr. Darling. On the seventh, at Scarsborough, he found the famous Australian in his tent, stripped to the waist, encircled -> by the Union Jack, and with his arms folded. "Now," said he, " we will have a proper tossing, and the one who gets on the top wins the toss." " All right," said Mr. Jackson. " Here, Georgic "— hailing a burly member of his team—"you come and toss this time." " Very well, then," returned Mr. Darling, hastily ; "we will toss in the old-fashioned way I" Mr. W. G. Grace has had soveral spells of " bad luck " in tossing, and has in consequence been presented with ''luc.ky" coins innumerable. Lo:d Hawke, when he ca...
