THE COMING FIGHT. SELECTING SENATE CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 February 1914

THE COMING FIGHT. SELECTING SENAJE CANDIDATES. There is every indication that the great political battle is at hand. The last issue of the " Worker," which is the most influential of all the Labor organs, contained little of any consequence save repealed calls to arms. Again and again, on this page and on that, it warned members of the Labor Party thai they must be in their places ready to fight, determined to win. There is little doubt that the reply will be prompt; the Party has its first line, four hundred thousand adult unionists, who may be regarded as regulars, and bhind them it has its volunteers. ^.Happily it is likely that solidarity will thisjtime be secured in the Liberal camp. The three Liberal Leagues have united to select candidatess for the six Senate seats which will be vacant when the double disolution comes. The ar rangements made for the selection of the six are made necessary under the party system which has been forced on Australia by Labor. Each of the three le...

FATAL BUGGY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 February 1914

FATAL BUGGY ACCIDENT. Mr. Franz Muller, farmer, of Kini makaika, near Nhil!, was killed on Thursday, 19th inst., through a buggy accident. He was driving a pair home wards, and it is thought that the horses took fright and bolted. An examination disclosed the fact that Mr. Muller's neck was dislocated. A ghastly wound was made in the back of the head, while his arm and leg were broken and, in some cases, the bones were laid bare. All the wounds were bleeding profusely. It is surmised that when the horses bolted Mr. Muller stood up in the buggy, endeavoured to pull them up and, overbalancing, was precipitated over the splashboard and caught in the turntable and pole attachment. With his head and arm dangling on-the ground, he was dragged in this position for a mile, and as his head and limbs were dashed against and drawn into the spokes of the front wheels, he re ceived the awful injuries which caused his death. The clothes were almost torn from his body, while one boot was missing. ...

As well as attending to the affairs of his kingdom, he conducts, in a & very thorough manner, a porcelain factory of which he is the owner. The business is a prosperous one, and is run on lines laid down by the Kaiser. He designs many of the goods, and, moreover, sometimes even engages new workmen himself.

Dentistry 1,000 Years ago. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 February 1914

Dentistry 1,000 Years ago. V During & lengthy relic-hunting visit to Ecuador, Professor Mar- ( shall Howard Saville, head of the archaeology department of Colum- i bia University, made several note- J worthy discoveries which will do much to enlighten the present gen eration about the early residents < of that country. The relics indicate these people to have been civilised and possessing scientific knowledge. . The most interesting discoveries were skulls which showed that the men are of a type superior to the Aztecs, for beyond the shape of the skull, teeth were filled with gold , and cement, proof unmistakable that dentistry was at a high stage of development one thousand, years ago. In Mexico human teeth have been dug up. that, were tilled and orna mented with stone, but this is the | first instance of gold filling having . been found in a prehistoric skull. , The gold was inside the teeth, showing little, on the outside, so the purpose was apparently for util...

CAXAWAN7 COLT). The laic Ilev. Dr. Mason when in JJuperfs Land as a missionary had a decidedly unpleasant experience one winter. The cold there is of ten so intense that mercury freezes and thermometers are useless. You get frost-bitten all over, ears, cheeks, nose, hands—all have their turn. Once when I)r. Mason was out shooting' (it was shoot game or starve then), he became very thirsty. A little hoar frost had .gathered on the barrel of his gun and thought lessly he tried to lick it off, but the intense cold of the met a 1 drew his tongue, and it froze to the gun. Strong measures were obviously necessary, so grasping the gun in both hands he simply tore it away and with it a piece of tongue larger than n. shilling. The pain was intense, but he was lucky not to have entirely lost his tongue.
