CHAPTER IX. FAMILIAR QUARTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

I CHAPTER IX. FAMILIAR QUARTERS. There could be no doubt as to the Spaniard's identity, though he was rather roughly dressed in faded blue serge, flannel shirt, and peaked cap. He seemed in nowise disconcerted by the meeting, and his smile was very genial as he held out a hand to Dick. With the other hand he lifted a foaming pewter to his lips, and took a deep draught. "Your health, Mr. Valentine !" he said. , Dick refused the proffered hand— gave no sign of hearing the words. In a dazed manner he snatched the glass of brandy" from the counter, and poured the fiery stuff down his throat. He stared silently and un easily at the Spaniard, thiirthng of the circumstances under/which he had last' seen him, in the-room of the Jolly Waterman, at Wapping. "So we have drifted together again, my friend !" said Senor Montejo, as he noted the haggard and desperate expression of Dick's features; "A strange meeting in a strange place ! I see the hand of I^ate in this !" "•Then Pate has played me ...

THE FARM. AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

THE FARM. T AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. The value of a fertiliser for crops does not depend on its total per centage of ammouia, phosphate of lime and potash, but upon the per centage of those constituents that the growing crop can utilise. This is the point that, a fanner has to look at when considering the ofli- . cacy of an artificial manure. There are a good many substances that contain a high percentage of one or the other fertilising constituents hut the constituents arc in such an inert form tlmt they afford little , or no nourishment to the crop. They "analyse well," but are bad fertilisers. A glaring instance of this class of substance (the "Mark I.ane Express" points out) is ground leather. Jt contains a very large percentage of ammonia, but decom poses so slowly that it has no right ; to the title "fertiliser." The plant [ asks for food and is given not ex actly a stone, but something' near j ly as hard. With the present sys tem of intensive cultivation, in which large q...

PROGRESS CQIVi'VllTTEE. The monthly meeting was held on Friday evening, when there were pre sent :—Dr. Rab! (president), Evans, Petering, W. L. Lamb and S. R. Lamb (secretary). The president reported that he had got A. Marx to repair the fence near the Chinaman's garden, and to trim dead limbs from the willows at the north end of the Lake. A letter was read from Hon. W. Hutchinson, notifying that ^25 had been voted to the committee from the Parks and Gardens vote, for improve ments to fencing, and planting at the reserve, on conditions that the com mittee expended an additional jQ12 10s on the work.—On the motion of Mr. Evans, seconded by Mr. Petering, it was decided to thank Mr. Hutchinson for his kind offices in this matter. Mr. Evans thought it would be nice if this committee tried to make a lawn near the rotunda, as nothing would im prove the reserve to such an extent. A special effort should be made, and he felt sure that the public would appre ciate their endeavors and give ad...

METHODIST HARVEST FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

METHODIST HARVEST FAIR. One of the prettiest displays seen for some time at Murtoa was that made at the grand Harvest Festival Fair of the Methodists held in the Church grounds on Monday afternoon and evening of the 9th inst. The sultry weather con tributed to make the outdoor gathering a large one, and great inierest was taken by visitors in the proceedings. Well lighted stalls were arranged on three sides of a square, and the grounds were illuminated by a hugh Kitson lamp (thoughtfully obtained through Cr. Gulbin) and a number pf Chinese lanterns. The Murtoa Brass B.md very kindly enlivened the evening by playing several selections, and the stirring strains of the bagpipes, played by a visitor (a Mr. Park), lent additional novelty to the proceedings. All the stalls were well supplied witfi goods, and considering that it was only five weeks since Mrs. Jones (the president), conceived the idea of organising the fair, the number of handsome and costly articles got together by the lad...

No Crowding:. r A travelling showman had a par rot, which was accustomed to imi tate his voice and words when lie was addressing the crowd about his lent, a.ncl always crcnted much amusement by doing so. In the course of man's wanderings they came to .a farming region, and here one day the parrot escaped and took to the fields. The show man organised a posse of-men and boys, and wciit in pursuit .of the fugitive. • After a good deal" of vain scarch, they heard a groat clamour in a tall tree on the edge of a wood. Creep ing up to the. place, they found that the poor parrot was up in the tree, stripped of most of his fea thers, and surrounded by a rtock of screaming rooks, who wore picking ul him mercilessly. In the midst of it all the parrot was calling.out, at the top of his voice : 1 "One nt iv time, gentlemen ! I IJon't crush so, please ! Take your limo ! There's plenty of room! Take your time !"

COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. COST AND EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. COST AND EFFICIENCY. Senator Millen, as Minister of De fence, has spoken a word of warning. When the people of the Commonwealth turned their attention seriously to the matter of defence, they called Lord Kitchener to their aid and adopted his scheme though it involved a large out lay. Lord Kitchener's estimate has been exceeded, and it is more than doubtful whether the ends at which his scheme aimed have been attained. Clearly Australia cannot defend the Northern Territory till there is a Trans continental line running from the populated South to the practically un peopled North 3 the Commissioners appointed to inquire into the construc tion of the proposed railway put the cost of a broad gauge line at 000,000, of a 3ft. 6in. line at ,£5.000,000. Senator Millen is naturally alarmed by the Financial Outlook, but ne is not an alarmist and, whilst appealing to military experts to keep outlay with in reasonable bounds, has not the slightest doubt that the Australia...

"Man Engine" Used in Cornish Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

" Man Engine " Used in Cornish Mine. * I In one of the mines of Cornwall, i England, a curious device, known as a "man engine," is in uso for conveying the miners to and from the deep workings. Near the mouth of the shaft is a large walk ing-beam engine. To the rim of the flywheel of this engine (says "Popular Mechanics") a driving rod is attached, and by means of a pivoted connection, the motion of the wheel is transmitted to a ver tical lifting rod in the mine shaft, as shown in the illustration. The lifting rod has a vertical move ment'' of 12ft. • At intervals of 12ft; platforms are supported both on'the lifting rod and on the side of the shaft, and the scCs of plat forms aro so arranged as to be at I the same level at the high and low position" of the rod. Iu descending, the miner steps on tha moving platform when it is at the end of the up-stroke, and is carried down 12ft. He then steps off and waits for the next up-stroke, when he is 'c-arriod down another L'Jft. This process...
