High Temperatures and the Eye. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 April 1914
High Temperatures and the Eye. The naked -eye has always been tho moans omploj-od for indicating high temperature, such as the melt ing of metals or healing them for rolling or forging. Until the py rometer niado its appearance (says the "ITardwarcman") tho eye was the only method omployed for de termining the temperature. While more or less inaccurnlc and suscep tible to the personal equation, tho eye is still used in the majority of cases. The following table will serve to indicate the temperature of a body as shown l>y its colour :— Dog. C.

Food of the Kestrel. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 April 1914
Food of the Kestrel. , : During a peregrination (says a correspondent) iir (he island of Mull I was attractod by a kestrel hawk flying out, from a rock. After a .somewhat diligent search, there being many rock?, I discovered the eyrie, and in it wore three young kestrels at that atngo when tho brown feathers arc showing fairly well among the white down. Think-' ing this was an admirable oppor tunity of seeing what nro the food supplies of theec birds, I hid at a distance to note what tho pnrotits brought to their nestlings. Even with my binoculars, however, I was unable to discover, and the follow ing dny I adopted different tactics. Shooting some young rabbits llagnin ; approached tho oyrie, when the pa rent birds were away. As in tho habit of these birds of prey, the young ones faced mo with open beak and claw's, but after I had dropped bits of warm meat into their open mouths they naturally, after feeling and tasting tho tit bits, swallowed them, and, liko Oliver Twist, were read...

More and raoro steadily it approached the j much-coveted animal victuals, con sisting of Insects, grubs, reptiles, eggs, birds, and smaller game. Gradually flesh-eating replaced the non-carnivorous diet, and soon hunt ing and fishing vied with the tilled soil and tho vineyards. Finally lifts was really made worth while by the inventor of cooking. The in troduction of cooking, like all new inventions, even of the present day, led at once to an over-consumption of the thing thus plnce.l enticingly within the reach of nil.

THE FARM. WESTERN WOLTHS GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
THE FARM. WESTERN WOLTHS GRASS. (Extracted from the Journal of De partment of Agriculture.) "A great wealth of forage, 15 ton.' to the acrc, is at present being cut for stock-feed at the Ruakurn Farrc of Instruction. It is the Westerr Wolths grass, a variety of *rye-grass said to have originated from apl.int plucked by the wayside by a Dutch peasant. At Uuakura it has undoubt edlj given the heaviest yield of al! rye-grasses, making a rapid dense growth and providing excellent spring feed, admirably adapted for cutting and carting 0ut to stock. Sown or the 14th' of May, it was nvwiv for feeding about the beginning of Octo ber. It Is generally considered t hat n legume and non-legume combination such as peas and oats, is the mo'1 desirable green crop, but this will give but a very poor second cut. Western Wolths, on the other h^n-d. provides several excellent subsetiiipn* cuttings. Undoubtedly a grass whic'i in a very wet season will give an abundance of feed at a critical time for da...
CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG - CALVES. • One of the most difficult habits to overcome where a number of young [ calves are running in a loose box is that of sucking one another, writes an English correspondent. There is a wide difference of opinion regarding the: results which may occur. . M^any claim that small quantities of hair are taken into the stomach, and this is, finally matted into a firm ball, which may clog . in the stomach or bowels of the calf, resulting in death. The reason .for this .habit, of sucking may . in some measure suggest av re medy. When we feed calves with milk" from the -.pail,- they .drink so rapidly that they fail to relieve the mouth of the saliva which naturally mixes with the milk, while thej are suck ing. In order to relieve their mouths of tlie sccretion which organs of di gestion demand, they will seek some thing to suck which will rid their mouths of the saliva, which has been retained to a largo extent, and their favourite object is .some portion o...

FRIGHTENED HIM. Ho was a sewing-machine agent of the most aggressive typo.' For twenty minutes the liuly ot the hoi;se had been awaiting an oppor tunity to say . she already possessed one. At last he paused. Only long enough, however, to thrust a card into the lady's hand. The bit of pasteboard was certainly a novelty. "My name is Sellum," it read, "of the firm of Blang and Company,, sew ing-machine manufacturers, and I in tend to prove to you that it is mad ness to defer purchasing one of our unequalled machines." -After a long description ol the machine carac the following: "You may plead that you are unable to work a machine. I will remove that objection in fifteen min | utes, or in three lessons. Will call inext Wednesday." When the agent called again a six foot man opened the door and bland ly remarked :— "You're the sewing-machine man, I suppose "Yes ; I called last week, and"—— "Yes, I know," interrupted tlic big man. "You don't know me, I sup pose ? My name's Bury, of Bury a...

There had been columns and columns des cribing, it all—the loss of the mail steamer Tropic, 'the rescue of some of licr passengers by the Juno, the Tjoarding of the latter by Gore and liis ruffiaus, and the sinking of the ship after Luke Radford had been murdered and Mary Ferris abducted ; then the lucky falling in of the Juno's "boats with the man-of-war, and the subsequent chase and dreadful fight that ended with the destruction of the yacht and the...
THE BURIED CITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
THE BURIED CITIES. 4 (Jly REV. E. V. WADDY.) Aii Australian vi«iling Ceylon cannot but be impressed hy &lt;-''0 an" iirjin'ty and historical romance of much that he comes across there. In his own country -lie can point to no monument dating buck more than a century, whilst in Ceylon the age of everything is counted by the thousand years instead of the hundred. One explanation of the giant footprint on Adam's Veak takes hiin back to the very beginning of the World's history, and If he is sceptical about accepting \this, he is on surer ground when he visits Galle, where for thousands of years the merchants of the world have come to tra.de, and if lo-dav the harbour of Galle is descried for that of Colombo, it is practically certain that Galle is the site of the ancient Tarshish, from which Solomon drew ninny of his treasures. If something more recent is wanted, Galle again provides it, for the old Dutch fort still stands as it was built three centuries ago, and its walls, in s...

CHAPTER XXIII. THE TWO TOWNS. During the afternoon there was great excitement and noise in the town, and from a front window Dick watched the motley groups of people who passed up and down the street. After dinner Jason Gore came in, and held a private conversation with Dick. "Although our laws forbid it," he began, "I am going to give you two more months of grace. At the end of that time you must take the oath of allegiance, or suffer the conse jquences ot refusal. Meanwhile you will have plenty of freedom, and can ob serve for yourself the sort of life we -■?*" lead Iierc." Dick was too prudent to reply to this ultimatum. It would be bad policy, he reflected, to ruffle the pir ate at such a time, "Will; I be permitted to sec Miss Ferris ?," he asked. "Not until the two months have expired," was ...
