A Locust Swarm. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

A Locust Swarm. ♦_ A novel experience for a new comer to South Africa is to en counter a locust swurni. To dwellers on the High Vel'lt the sight is not unusual, but one's Ar&t ac quaintance with the pest is some what startling. A party of "newly-outs" was tak ing the Journey to the Victoria Falls. When half-way across the Karoo, 011 a bright, sunny day, the 91m suddenly became obscured, and the sky seemed to turn black. The ladies screamed in alarm ; they thought it meant an earthquake, or at least a violent tropical thunder storm, but- a voice along the cor ridor of the train, shouting, " Lo custs swarming—close all doors and window's," explained the peculiar darkness, and partly calmed tho feminine fears. The order was obe}'ed, and the passengers watched developments. The gigantic mass swooped down On the train, covering coaclics and rails, and beating themselves against tho windows. Netting; out all light. The train slowed down to. WJiet-O, roi- cr<mhA.l b^uten...

CHAPTER XIII. THE MISSING PASSENGER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

CHAPTER XIII. THE MISSING PASSENGER. Before half the distance was cover ed the yacht's jolly boat had come up abreast of the launch—the hitter hung back a little for it — and the two went 011 side by side. Leon Mon tejo was in the boat, with four of the crew, and after exchanging a few words with Captain Gore, he shot a glance at Dick that was full of men ace and hatred. Dick returned it scornfully, and then grave his entire attention to the Juno. The ship had a crippled appearance as she laj heaving; on the swell. A few men were leaning from the mil, two were on the bridge, and others were bust ling about, with considerable excite ment and noise. The launch came up to the liner amidships, where a ladder had been put out, and with cool impudence Captain ftore and six of his men clambered aboard the Juno, Peter Smock prodding Dick from behind. Montcjo and a companion followed from the jollyJ>oat. Dick gazed about him with flushed and shamed face. Only a few of the crew, and severa...

Holder for Flexible Lamp Cord. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

Holder for Flexible Lamp Cord. Tho holder is made of a round stick—a piece of a broom handle will do—ns shown in Fig. 3. It is about Tin. long with two not ches cut out for tho strands of the cord. These holders arc easily made and will answer the purpose almost as w'ell as the ones made in porcelain. Painting or enameling will improve not only their appear- | ancc, but also their insulating pro perties. Several of them can be I used along a line, as shown Fig. 2. Two costers were in the I'.rilinh Museum, looking at the statue of a lionian gladiator. One of its arms was broken off, his Left leg ended at the knee, his helmet was haltered, and there wore several chips from the face of the warrior. l.'nder neal.h the statue was an inscription, "Victory." "Lor' lmiiiiio. Bill," said the gen tleman in pearlies, "if that there bloke won the victory what must 'a been the state of the bloke what lost !"

THE DAIRY. ABOUT-BUYING COWS [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

THE DAIRY. ABOUT-BUYING COWS ' A representative letter from an English dairy farmer in t.he "British Agricultural Press" savs: — "Cow buying is a very uncertain business. There is giuch faking in the cow mar ket, but home-bred heifers are at least honest. Horns may be rubbed down, and udders stocked, and other purchases m'ty turn out deceptive owing to udders being what is known as fleshy. Many cows milk well for .the first two or three months, and then quickly dry of!, and these are just the animals which will be run round and offered for sale after' their next calving. Some cows which milk ed well In their own homes do badly when transferred to a newi place. Some are sold because they are kick ers, or liable to blow or suffer from some recurring ailment. "No one doubts that heifers are safer buying than cows, but the fact remains that we are losing ground as to the supply of milking cattle by the system of dealing too exclusively with cows. The indiscriminate sale and slaughter of...

LAND SETTLEMENT. At the A.N.A. conference at Bondigo on Wednesday, Mr. A. L. Bussau (War racknabeul) moviid that Parliament by naked to grant greater facilities to suitable persons to select Crown land, in order to prevent the exodus of settlers from Vic toria.

Why We Write L. S. D. ORIGINS OF EVERYDAY SIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

Why We Write L. S. D. A ORIGINS OF EVERYDAY SIGNS. There are all sorts and kinds of familiar signs which arc often soon in books and newspapers, and which are frequently used in writing, the meanings of which arc well-known, but as to how Ihey came to be used few people are able to say. For instance, money signs for pounds, shillings, and pence are . al ways indicated " by three letters— L s. d.—which originate from the Latin words ' librae, solidi, and de narii, and which'mean pounds, shill ings, and pcn'ce, the initial letters being taken in each case to give the .sign so often used. The let ters lb, for pounds, of weight, is made up of the first and third let ters of the Latin word librae. In the short cwt. for hundred weight, and dwt. for. pennyweight, the wt is an abbreviation of weight the first and last letters being the accepted .rule—and tho.c is the Latin numeral for a hundred, and d is used as the first letter of denar i\iRf a penny. ~ ^ is -lh« . - ~_• there is no /. in ...

Back to the Land. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

Back to the Land. ♦——. : There aro too many "dreamers and thinkers," And not anough tillers of the soil; There are too many eaters and i ri tinkers | Wlui use up the products of toil; Then; are too many boosters and !•<_>( i rncrs, With manners too easy and bland ; We're cursed with too many con sumers. We ought to go back to the land. There are too many getters and • lakers, And not, enough men who producc ; There arc too many broad rolling acres Untouched and untitled—out of use; We stick where the grime and the grit is, And the streets with the poor arc j s-sw&rm; We're crowded too much in the cities, We ought to go back to the farm. We've got to be workers and ploughers, Who sweat in the fields like true men ; We've got to make use of our J ' powers To make the land blossom again. What, me? On a form? And to stay there ? Well, not for a bundle of pelf ! I was trying to show you the way there, J'.ut" I'll stick to the city myself

THE WATCH'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

THE WATCH'S WORK. The work a watch will do in ten years is surprising. Tn that time, which includes two leap years, and consequently a total of 3,652 days, the hour hand has made 7,30*1 and the minute hand 87,648 revolutions. The end of an average minute hand travels over 3 0,820 yards—over six miles. The second hand has made 5,258,880 revolutions, and its ex tremity has traversed on the dial a distance of upwards of 123 miles. The escape wheel has made 52, r>8.S,800 revolutions, and, as it has fifteen tooth, it has comc 788,823, 000 times in contact with each pal let. The balance has made 1,577, 644,000 vibrations, and any point on the outside of the rim has cov ered a distance of about 50,000 miles, iind that is equal to twice the circumference of the earth.
