The Escalator, or Moving Stairway. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914

The Escalator, or Moving Stairway. ♦ " Our illustration, taken from "Cas sier's Magazine," shows in a sim plified nmniier the construction of the moving stairways which are taking this place of lifts in largo stores, . drapery establishments, etc. its great advantage over a lift lies in the fact that it is always in motion.; no time is lost in taking' on and discharging passengers as in a lift. The .speed of moving is not great, of course, but just tho .speed at which the passenger may with facility step upon or from it in absolute .safety. Tho first essen tial of design is to inspire conli cluiieo:-.QJQ thp part of the passen ger, tvnd this was one great reason that .determined the inventors to mako it in the form of a stair ease—an" architectural feature fami liar to all from infancy. The esca lator may he -described as a con tinuous series of rigid steps, unit ed by an endless sprocket chain. Through tho arrangement of the tracks, any desired relation of the steps is secured ; on...

LIBERALS FOR THE SENATE: PRE-ELECTION BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914

LIBERALS FOR THE SENATE: PRE-ELECTION BALLOT. . Members of the Liberal Leagues have had no more important duty to discharge than the approaching selec tion of six of the seventeen aspirants who are anxious to carry the party colors, should a double disolutiun be granted |t is of vital importance that the pre election should fairly represent the Liberal thought and Liberal sentiment of the whole State. Even if some one wing carried its own men to the ex clusion of all others, Liberals generally would accept the mandate of April next when the actual election came. But a very large, though quite uncertain, percentage of the electors is neither Liberal or Labor, and its ever doubtful verdict will be determined by the tact and breadth of view displayed when ihe Leagues declare themselves. The pre election poll will decide whether Vic toria is lo be represented or to be mis represented in the next parliament. If members of the Leagues realise that, they will give serious attemion to the c...

CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914

CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. Dick had heard all the foregoing conversation, and he realised what it meant. He knew that the pirate con templated another•outrage, and one infinitely worse than the shooting of Luke Radford. "Must I stand by and see it ?" ho said to himself. "Thay will take this woman by force to the cruiser, and she is probably wall-bred and a lady. : The captain is right ; she had much better be dead than fall into such hands !. I can't play a passive part much1 longer. If J had a pistol I should be strongly tempted to shoot that scoundrel, Jason Gore. And it might be just as well for me, for I am a .doomed man, anyway. I can't see a ray of hope in the future." At that moment there was a stir of curiosity, and Dick's comrades closed I compactly in front of him, blocking | his view across the deck. He shifted I ■ his position and looked. The captain was at the head of the companion way, supporting on one, arm a young atfd most beautiful girl. Her slim figure showed ...

Wireless Works Best During Storms at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914

Wireless Works Best Du ring Storms at Sea, Mysterious as the transmission of wireless messages seems to the aver age lay mind, there are phases con nected with wireless telegraphy whic)ij > battle tiio scientific mind as well. Certain atmospheric conditions are known to be more favourable to tho transmission of, wireless messages than others. ' Thus, the reach of nn instrument.'■ i,s always longer at night than in the daytime, and on a night following a cloudy day the reach is many -times as long. The ideal condition for transmission is a cloudy day across water, and manyj sciciitiiic minds are puzzling thc.m-j solves to find some explanation fori this. Professor A. IT. Taylor, on the subject of wireless, calls attention ■ to the fact that tho explanation I usually accepted is hardly adinissi-, ble. According :.to this theory, sunny days cause ionization of the nir, that is, they; cause . disintegra tion by ultra-violet rays. But Fro-1 fessor Taylor points,out that ioniza tion oc...

CORRESPONDENCE* [Wo <lo not identity ourselves with tho opinions expressed by correspondents in this column, nor will wo in any way hold ourselves responsible for saiwo.} RUNNING AND READING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Being one of the very many who would like to properly enjoy the fine pictures shown every week at the Mechanics' Hall, Murtoa, might I sug gest to the Grampians management the wisdom of exposing the picture an nouncements (the reading notices) a little longer on the canvas. My eyes are quite equal to the average optics, but I confess that in nearly every in stance they fail to take in half of the matter set forth before it is flashed from (he vision and I am left in perplexity. The announcements are deemed neces sary by the film-makers to enable spec tators to follow the plot of a drama, or to appreciate the beauty of any particu lar scene, whilst they are absolutely indispensable in rendering the Topical Budget intelligible. When moving pic tures were first intro...

Jones and Mrs. Jones, and a report of the presentations and valedictory pro ceedings will appear in our next. As tho seiison has been poor for flowers, the committee of Holy Trinity Church have decided to hold their annual flower show this year in the spring. A cricket match has been arranged between the Murtoa branches of the A.N.A. and I.O.O.F., to be played on Good Friday. As each lodge has pre viously won a game this decisive strug gle of the " friondlies " should prove in teresting. The socond slioot for a club trophy took place on the local rifle ranges this week, and some good scores were put on, J. Bates being top with 99 off the rifle over the three ranges. W.

DUTY OF THE ARMY. A REMARKABLE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 April 1914

DUTY OF THE ARMY. A REMARKABLE SPEECH. In the light of recent events—and particularly the part General Sir Arthur Paget has played—a speech delivered by him on February 23 is of special interest. At a dinner given in Dublin Sir Arthur Paget made what was de scribed by the newspapers as a remark able speech. The address is reported in files which arrived from London recently. " Sir Arthur Paget " (says "The Times" correspondent in Dublin)? " is popular in Ireland for family and personal reasons. He has kept himself , strictly aloof from politics, and although ; he is thought to have sirong political ; opinions, Unionists and Nationalists | are equally reluctant to criticise. ! Sir Ariliur Paget said :—1 have no [intention of talking politics. I must l tell you that I have no- authority in [stating what I do, but I am, to a cer^ ; tain extent, behind the scenes, as 1 i keep a permanent seat in the front row [of the theatre.
