OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
OBITUARY. We regret to chronicle the death of Mrs Frederick Pumpa, an old and re spected resident of Murtoa, who passed away at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. Being of very industrious habits she kept on working up till quite recently. When at last she had to give in, it was found that she was suffering from pericarditis and pleurisy. Under medical treatment she improved, and in fact was considered to be over the worst, but she suddenly expired in the middle of the night from heart-failure. Besides her husband deceased leaves three sons and five daughters to mourn her loss, nil of whom are grown up except one. The funeral will take place this afternoon at 2.30.

He Liked Oysters. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
He Liked Oysters. T "When I was in the produce busi ness years ago," said an old mer chant, "I had, among, my country shippers, a German by the name of Jacob Snyder. He did not often come to the city, but when he did it was a great occasion with him, and ho cxpected some attention. .So one morning, when ho turned up in my shop about ten o'clock, I said to him :— " 'Jacob, you must have made an eurly start to get here so soon. How would you like to have a bit of lunch right away ? Do you like oysters?" " *Vy,' he said, '1 coult eat a few oysters.' "So we went round to a neigh bouring oyster bar, and 1 ordered two stews. "'Now, Jacob,' said I, 'while we are waiting, what do you say to some raw ?' " 'Veil, he replied, ' I don't mind.' " So we had half a dozen raw apiece, and as the stews had not yet come, we had another half a dozen oft the half-shell. "When the stews were despatched, J. asked, «.s a matter of form, if he would not have another, and he said j " 'Yell, them's pretty goo...
AT MURTOA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
AT MURTOA. The party reached Murtoa at nine o'clock, and were met at the Water Commission's office by a number of farmers who desired to ventilate their grievances. Mr. Hutchinson, addressing the as semblage in the big room, said that as a result of their tour that day he was i very pleased with the water conditions I prevailing in this district, notwithstand ing the long dry spell which was making such a strain on all parts of the State. Although the condition of affairs in this locality was very good so far, some com plained that they could not hold out much longer. Over in Rupanyup they had ascertained that the local supply in the channels was pretty well exhausted; and in order to meet requirements, he had decided to hurry up the run tin's year, instead of waiting until the end of June, as hiiherto. They had been gratified with all the meetings that day, finding everywhere that the desire of the Government and the Water Com ' mission to help the farmers was'honestly recognissd. ...

Dr. A. R. Wallace. 1 - t DEATH OF A FAMOUS SCIENTIST. * Br. Alfred Russell Wallace, the I associate of Darwin, Spencer, and Huxley as a. pioneer of the theory of evolution, died at his home, Old Orchard, Broadstone, Wimborne,' Dorsetshire, in his 02nd year. Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace was] the son of a London lawyer. His I father, whose means were not suflt-l c.ient to provide for the upkeep of a large family in London, moved to the town, of Usk, in Monmouthshire; mid here the man who, along with • Charles Darwin, was to startle the whole- thinking world first saw the light. Wallace received his early education at Hereford Grammar School. '■THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST." . "In 1854: lie left Britain, and, travelling .eastward*, arrivad at Singapore, where he was to begin / his, eight years.' wanderings amongst : the-islands of the Malay Archipela go, an account of which is recorded in his most popular work of that name.

Why We are Using Our Touch. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
Why We are Using: Our Touch. The s»»se of touch is very likely to heroine a lost art.. A thousand 'labour-saving devices now take the I lnrc of motions which formerly re quired deftness and skill. -Manual &lt; exterity is giving pla&lt; e to men tal gaidaiioo, and one of the most potent factors in the upbuilding of . civilisation is being abandoned. The effect of this has been made clear by the restlessness of businessmen and the absence of any means to release their nervous energy. Nervous energy is misapplied un less there is some actual physical outlet. The nervous energy of rage | finds its relief in stamping of the I foot . or "in pounding the table with one's fist ; the nervous energy of grief finds remission in tears ; the nervous energy of suspense show's itself in a feverish pacing to and fro ; the nervous energy of joy in quick, rhythmic movements;' for, as the phrase goes, "we ■ dance for joy." Kor centuries the nervous energy ■ of ' women;; has been- cons...
LACE INDUSTRY FOR QUEBEC. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
LACE INDUSTRY FOR QUEBEC. To (he ninny flourishing industries of the Province of Quebec, Canada, it. is possible that the manufacture of lace, and lace-making machinery, may soon be added. Two leading British lace manufacturers, Mr. D. .1. dardine, M.F., and Mr. E. Jar dine, who employ some 3000 work ers in Not.tinghnm, have recently paid a visit to Canada, for the ex press purpose of ascertaining whe ther the time is ripe fur the estab lishment of this industry in the Canadian Hominion. It is thought thai I he fari/V at present in force is scarcely high enough to warrant such an undertaking without some Co\ernni'-nt concession, but hopes are entertained that such n con cession may be secured as to en sure the founding of a lace indus try in the Province of Quebec on a pro.' table "basis.

Laconic Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
I Laconic Letters. f... Some amusing instances of laconic letters are given by Mr. Seton in his "Gossip About Letters and Lot tor-Writers." Lord Berkeley wrote to the Duke of Dorset : "My dear Dorset,—I have just been mar ried, and am the happiest dog alive. —Berkeley." And got for answer, " My dear Berkeley,—Every dog has' his day !—Dorset." A young fellow at college wrote to his uncle, on whom he entirely depended, "My dear Uncle,—Ready for the needful.—Your affectionate nephew." The uncle replied, " My dear Nephew,—The needful is not | ready.—Your affectionate Uncle." It is pleasant' that affection should survive pecuniary embarrassments, as it did in the ease of Samuel 1'oote's mother and himself : "My dear. Son,—I aiti in prison for debt. Come \ and assist your loving mother.—F. Foote." "Dear Mother, —So am I, which prevents his duty being paid to his loving mother by her affectionate son, Sam Foote." An English nobleman was in love with a "lady fair.".. He met her one evening ...
MILKING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
MILKING MACHINES. The New York experiment station at Geneva follows the experiment stations of some of the other States in an endorsement of the practicabil ity of machine milking.* .During the past five years the station has used a popular make that is on the mar ket and a. careful record has been made of its work. Surely this ought to be a thorough test, aud when the machine milling if. endorsed on such a basis it should carry a lot of weight with those dairymen who have been waiting for years for the satisfaction that will come to them once they are able to get away from hand milling. "The Review" was "the first of American dairy papers to express its faith in milking machines, upholding the idea when others unhesitatingly condemned them. Our faith in the triumph of the mind over mechanical problems is.always on the side of mind, and ten years i>go when we ob served intelligent dairymen, and es pecially the experiment stations, get ting satisfactory results from t.bem, we wore...
NIAGARA'S RIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
NIAGARA'S RIVALS. When an idea becomes firmly rooted in the minds of the-general public it is hard to disturb. Ask the next > friend or acquaintance- you .meet j which is tbe greatest waterfall in the) world, and he is almost certain to reply, without the slightest hesita tion, -"Niagara." As a matter of fact, Niagara docs not hold the palm by any me.ins. The Victoria Falls in Central Africa, are I quite a'hundred feet higher than Nia gara. In the neighbourhood' of Bra maputra, too, is &n enormous series I at tails, ■ by which a* vast, rivor des- , ceiuls over a' mile in a very short length of its course ; but this tre mendous waterfall is'in the almost inaccessible heights of the Himalayas In British Guiana a fall has been discovered of recent years with a sheer drop of 300ft. — nearly twice that of the higher .of Niagara's two falls. In British Guiana, too, there is another fall more than 600ft. deep. The American Fall at Niagara is 1,060ft. wide, and the somewhat shal ...
Quebec's New Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
Quebec's New Industry. There is talk of the establishment of a new industry in the Province of Quebec—no less than the making of that epicurean delicacy, "Devon shire" cream. As a result of in vestigations recently carried out in the laboratory of one of the agri cultural colleges of this province, a leading agricultural authority has come to the conclusion that the making of clotted cream practically identical with the far-famed pro duct of Devonshire is perfectly fea sible in Eastern Cnnada. Dairying is n J ready a nourishing industry in Quebec, and the making of clotted cream will open up new possibilities of development. Many farmers in the country districts own large herds of Jersey cattle, and are, therefore, in a very favourable po sition for taking up this new in dustry, for, while it is not at all essential that Channel Island breeds shall be used, a rich, milk is of course preferable. In the large cities and popular summer resorts of Quebec the farmers have a certain marke...
THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING l.ANDS. The proper treatment of old and worn-out grazing land often appears to he a very serious and difficult problem to many farmers. It is, how ever, one which may bo readily solved. Old grass latrls have become rich in nitrogenous matter, hut have usually been depleted of much of their mineral constituents, chiefly by the removal of potash nnd phosphate to build up the bodies of the animals grazing on them. What then is th" chief remedy for such old and im poverishe-d grass lands, or for poor freshly-reclaimed lands naturally de ficient ? Simplj to npply the potash and phosphate whose deficiency pre vents the land from yielding .good crops of hay or carrying a rich and nutritious pasture. The required pot ash may be very profitably appli.d in a dressing of half or even lewt. 30 per cent, potash manure in autumn or winter. The results of all carefully conduct ed experiments by skilful experimen ters demonstrate the advantage to bo gained by potash manur...
Puzzle of a Piglet. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
Puzzle of a Piglet. Mr. Caleb Peaslee gazed at his pig speculatively. It was a little pig—"Hardly make a meal for a growing boy," Mr. Peaslee had said —and it capered about the pen and stood with head uptilted to_ Caleb, pleading to be fed. "I dunno what he doos with all the stuff we give him to eat," ur ged Mr. Feaslcc, plaintively. " T don't see where ho puts it ! lie's such a mite of a thing, anyway. His appetite's something appalling. "Just this mornin' Jed, my hired man, took a brimming pailful of milk and stuff out here and pour ed it into that trough, and stood here and watched that critter eat up the last mite of it. Jed told me the pig didn't make anything of eating it all up in just a minute or two, and then the critter stood and squealed for more right on top of that. "Jed wondered, just as I do, where he found room for so much stuff," Mr. Teaslee ruminated, " and he said the pip wasn't a particle bigger after he'd et all that pail ful. Just to make himself sure that ho w...
LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
LUCERNE. Lucerne is talked of more than ever now at our dairy meetings. It is a well kin own fact that it furnishes the cheapest source of protein of any roughage zrown. One thins.' strongly emphasized by the experts is that it will not start under the ordinary conditions usually iriveil other crops by farmers. Quite contrary to the prevalent opinion, it needs a rich, sweet, thoroughly cultivated, well drained soil at the besinninjr.. When once started it has been found to be one of the easiest crops to grow ever kmown. After a field is Well set it docs not require as much care, and as one farmer said at a recent meet ing, "the more you abuse it then, the better it does.' '—11Jereey Bulle-1 tin." 1918. |

WIMMERA WATER SUPPLY. VISIT OF DEPARTMENTAL HEADS. INVESTIGATING GRIEVANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 6 March 1914
WIMMERA WATER SUPPLY. «. VISIT OF DEPARTMENTAL HEADS. INVESTIGATING^GRIEVANCES.. The Hon. W. Hutchinson, Minister for Agriculture and Water Supply, has been unlucky enough to strike a dry season on assuming the administration of the Water Supply Department, and as a consequence the farmers' cries for water reached our parliamentary repre sentative's ears, exemplifying the truth of the statement " Uneasy lies the head that wears a Crown." It was a wise policy of Mr. Hutchinson to decide to personally investigate matters, and so, in company with Mr. Cattanach (acting chairman of the Water Commission), Mr. Shaw (engineer in charge of the district), and Mr. Southern (the local engineer for Wimmera United Trust), they visited the district, their first appointment being at Warracknabeal at 9 o'clock on Saturday mqrning. After hearing one or two deputations at Warracknabeal, the Minister promised that a run of water would be sent through the channels to accommodate district farmers about t...
