SHE SAVED SOMETHING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
SHE SAVED SOMETHING. A noted music-teacher was giving a lesson to a talented but careless pupil, and was rapklly becoming im patient with licr. Finally, at a most complicated part of a ditli cult piece, the pupil lifted her hands from the piann nnrl made p wild flash for her handkerchief tu-stop a threatened sneeze. It whs the last straw. "Oh," exclaimed the tcachcr, thrusting her own handkerchief at her, "was there ever such a girl ! Von lose your position, you lose your fingering-, you lose jour hand kerchief—you lose everything !" "Oh, no !" responded the pT.ipil, with a twinkle, "not everything ! 1 haven't lost my temper." Coffee is a fairly good air puri fier, and a little burnt on hot coals will purify a sick room and j abolish b:)d smells. Many physi cians think highly of the bracing effects of coffee taken before they visit cases of infectious disease.

He Asked for It. The following bit- of repartee must either havo cleared tho air or brought, on a storm. Which result followed is not stated. An officer known l>,v his friends to be a rather "close" man, has hatl ninny n passage at arms with his wife by reason of that very close ness. &lt;)n one occasion a friend had the misfortune to enter just as the pair were ending: an argument touch ing some question of household ex penditure. The friend was just, in time to hear the husband say "Marie, you cannot hoodwink me in these matters. Do you think that 1 have lived nil these years for nothing V" "L shouldn't be at. all surprised," was the crisp reply. A man's coat should be laid per fectly flat with the wrong side down. The sleeves should be spread out smoothly, and then folded back to the elbow until each end of the sleeve is even with the collar. Fold the rcvers back and then double the coat over, folding it directly in the centrc seam and smoothing: it out care fully.

PART 2. CHAPTER in.—(Continued.) | Dick darted across the pavement, and clasped the outstretched hand. "Grenville, my dear fellow !" he cried. "Why, I. thought tho Malta was thousands of miles away! When did you come to town ?" "Three days ago —. got a month's leave," was the reply. "Awfully sorry but I didn't have a chance to look.' you up. Come and-lunch with me." "Can't; have an engagement." "Let your tailor wait," Grenville-' laughed. "I'll takw no denial. I have so much to tell you." Come along;, old man." Dick yielded and took a Beat in the cab. : It rattled up Regent-street into Piccadilly, and stopped before Hat chett's. The two were soon at a table deep down in that old-time re sort. It was like another world, with the soft artificial light shining on plate and linen, on the richly-colour ed mural decorations, on black-clad waiters moving noiselessly over the thick carpet. Dick glanced about the lunch room, which was moderately" full. He pod ded to several acquaintances, an...
Great Mysteries of Science. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
Great mysteries of Science. (By GARRETT P. SERVISS.). If Sir William Ramsay Is right in the conclusions that he draws from recent experiments of his—anrl he Is strongly supported by Messrs. Collie and Paterson—we may, be fore long, see the dreams of tho an cicnt alchemists fulfilled in ways of which they had no conception. The alchemists, who have been uni versally derided and laughed at un til the last few years, in which chemists have been getting tluur eyes opened, believed that it was possible to turn base metals, such as lead, into gold. Modern science said : "No ! The different elements are fixod in their nature. It i3 idle to think of changing ono into Rnother. What they are they will remain." Then came the discovery of the "radio-active" substances, like ra dium, and chemistry suddenly learn ed a new lesson. To every body'3 astonishment it was found thft atoms are not, as had long been believed, ultimate, Indivisible parti cles, by the heaping together of which, in varying n...

CHAPTER IV. THE SB NOR I/EON MONTE JO. Geoffrey Grenville hesitated for .a moment, enjoying his friend's evi dent curiosity ; he looked at liini and smiled. "I thought you would know at uncc," ho said. "You surely suspect, old chap—it's Miss Ferris." "Mary Ferris !" Dick muttered. He did not know that he had spoken aloud. His face hardened, and his hand shook a little as he lifted a glass of wine to his lips. "I con gratulate you," he said, in a low voice. "You have won a pearl of a J woman." '•fes, I have," replied Grehvillc, who was stupidly blind to the efiect his avowal had produced on his com- j panion. "Thanks for your congratu lations.

Circular Saws of Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
Circular Saws of Paper. - ♦ Paper Is at present used for all possible purposes in tho industries and in all possible forms. It has evon been possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness comparable with stone, so that it can bo used as building ma terial. The latest use for paper howc'-cr is perhaps the most pecu liar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufacturing cir cular saws from paper. These paper saws are used for the manu facturing of fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws niade from drawing paper were shown in an English exposi tion. Tho saws were driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabi net makers can use thorn without further planing.
CHAPTER V. AT THE SIGN OF THE JOLLY WATERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
CHAPTER V. AT THIS SIGN OF THK JOLLY WATERMAN. For fi moment Dick was silent.. He pondered over the Spaniard's words, but with no intention of t.akiug them seriously. He was curious to know to what illegitimate use. the yacht, was to be put—that, it had been purchased with some shady motive in view he was satisfied. And, remembering cer tain rebellions then flourishing in dif ferent parts of the world, be quickly concluded that, be had found the clue. He pushed back bis chair and rose to his feet. "Your offer is a little too tempt ing, too flowery, Senor Montejo," be said, ■ coldly. "I beg to dcclin0 it with thanks. I doubt if the allure ments you bold -out, would compen sate me for a cell: in some .foreign prison, though you may not regard that as a shadow of peril or misfor tune—to quote your'own words." The Spaniard's black eyes flashed mcnacinglv. "Sir, I request that you make your meaning, plain,'.' he answered. "Do you accuse me of having illegal de signs ?" "I accuse you of n...

Worth a Bullet. ? In some reminiscences of the late Boer War, Colonel Kekewich, who no gallantly defended Kimberley for l.'Jfi days, tolls (lift following story. "no day ho was approached by a private, who nsked— "Colonel, when do you expect wo arc going to trot something to eat?" "Ent !" exclaimed the Colonel. "Did ynu join the army merely to get. somcf hin.tr to ont ?" "Well, that's about, the size of it," replied tli" soldier. 'Tlero," said the Colonol, railing an otlicer, "give. tin's man something to eat, and then have hint shut." The oflieer understood the joke, and replied—"All right, Colon*;!."

APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. 1 One important feature in the skilful use of artificials is the proper sea son of the year to apply them (.re marks the "North British Agricul turist"). This point has far greater significance than most farmers com monly imagine. Especially is this true in the case of kainit and potash manure salts, where success or failure may depend on the season of applica tion. Kainit is a very useful manure if applied at the right time. If ap plied at the wrong time, It may be thrown away as far as the crop in question is concerned ; it might even be hurtful to some crops if used at a wrong lime. • The results of a large number of experiments conducted on the Con tinent and in Great Britain give valuable information on this point. The majority of them point to the advantages of early application of kainit and potash salts, that is, au tumn or winter application. Profitable increases are given bj both autumn and spring applications, but in almost every case autumn...

Underground. + MODERN NEW YORK LIFE. In an illustrated article in the popular "Mechanics Magazine," Mr. Leo L>. Hoddlng, states that from a million and a half to a million and three-quarters of the residents of Now York spend a portion of each day underground, and many thousands come to the surface so rarely that the light of day blinds them when they reach It. Discuss ing this phase of modern city life, Mr. Redding continues :—So accus tomed has New York become to the idea of living underground that only a few days ago a public cele bration wus held when a new under ground passageway was opened. This newest tunnel, costing many thousands of dollars, w'as dug to give tho people who live near the Hudson .River and in the neigh bourhood of ISlst Street an op portunity to pass beneath the liilla from their home to tho subway, by which means they travel to the lower end of Manhattan Island, to Brooklyn, and, by means of a transfer, to Xew Jersey.
