In Abraham's Country. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
In Abraham's Country. — » 'Tho Journey from Beirut to Alep po, scarcely longer in point of mile ages than from London to Manches ter, took UB nineteen hours. A | good-natured Turkish officer shared the compartment, and helped to ©n j liven the way, as well as to keep : undesirables from travelling with us. I Beyond Hmna, on the river Orovitcs, we could see several of the high water wheels which are used to raise wator from the river to the high ground on either side. These naurn, as tlioy are called, are of huge di mensions, some of them nearly 70 feet in diameter. As tho wheel passes through the water, small i boxes are filled with the fluid, and, when they reach tho top they empty their contents into a trough, from which the water- is directed into the necessary channels. Night _ and day these wheels turn, and are only to be stopped by diverting tho force of the water below into another course. Altogether, it is a curious example of Syrian engineering, and the creaking of the wlie...
Australian Irrigated Farms [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
I - Australian Irrigated Farms » I.iurgu areas ju Australia hitherto regarded as of little value, possibly on account of the scanty rainfall1 in those purls, or of, the absence of any comprehensive and cITcctivo means of water conservation, aro now being made highly productive, and consequently very valuablo by tho irrigation schemes carried out under the supervision of tho various State Governments. In this re spect New South Wales and Victoria aro conspicuous, and to-day settlers arc making good headway on tho irrigated lands.

It practically eliminates the leakage «' gas. The secret of Its manufacture cannot 1)3 discovered by examination or analy sis. This material, says our author ity, will make the airship a feasible commercial proposition as a pas songer-carryiny vehicle. He prophe sies that airships running repularly between London1 n-i&lt;! I'ari.-j will carry fifty passengers, and do nixty mile* nil hour with ease and convorl. Ah passengers pass through the turnstiles to the airship, we ttri« told, their weight will bo recorded. Those over 13 stone u'ould have to pay excess. Consequently gentlemen near the limit would discard coats and wraps, and give them to their lighter friends. All England would bo furnished with lighthouses—the white upper light would bo the county one, and the lower red light wonil...

This, lie said, was the most re markable instance which had coma under -his notice, and he had in his time performed about SOO post mortems. The late Sir (Jeorge Paget, ill one 01 his lectures which were pub lished some years ago under the editorship of his son, stated that in most cases where death is at tributed to "broken heart" no rup ture of that organ has actually ta1 en place, although undoubtedly mental troubles do frequently cause disease of the body. lie mentioned nn actual case of broken heart which was cited by Dr. J. K. Mitchell, of the Jefferson College, Philadelphia. In an early period of his career, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sailing- from Liverpool to one of the American ports.

With this issue meats containing interesting serial Island." we give two supple instalments of the tale, " The Secret After a long dry spell and ominous j fears of a bad season, fine rains fell on ! Friday night in the Wimmora, and a splendid fall followed on Monday night, when S9 points were registered at Murtoa Post-Ofliee. Over an inch and a-half fell during tho week, to the delight of tho fanners, and wintry weather still prevails.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If- you want to heat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the gas-Jct will enable you to heat the iron twice as quickly. Scorch-marks on linen :nay be re moved by rubbing fresh-cut onion, the garment being afterwards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccup, give the patient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and vinegar. If this does not afford instant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of greens, use sugar in place of soda, which gives the greens a much better fla vour, but they then require a little longer cooking. To keep the white of an leegfrom leaving the yolk and scattering about in the water, take a spoon and stir the water rapidly round for a few seconds, then drop the egg gently in the "hole" in the centre of the whirlpool formed by the rapid circular motion of the spoon, j Doll up quickly for three or four minutes. To cook foreign eggs and make J them equal in flavour to fresh conn- j Lry egtfs, try tin's plan. Prick n I hole with a n'"'&...
A Nursery Chair. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 April 1914
A Nursery Chair. This nursery chair is such a siniplo contrivance and so very useful that the wonder is no one thought of it till now. A woman has the credit of inventing it. —The chair is fitted | with two drawers to contain all i that is necessary in dressing baby. The drawers are divided into com- j portments to hold the safety pins, ponder pulT, handkerchiefs, brush arid comb, feeding utcnBils, and odds and ends which every mother likes to have handy for baby's toi let. There is 110 doubt this device would greatly simplify t.hc .soirie whal trying operation of dressing a fractious baby, and save nurse or mother much unnecessary trouble. Tlio nursery chair is so simjdo of construction that tliere is no rea son why a handy man should. not adapt one for household use o>»t of a common kitchen chair, one of the square, solid, old-fu.shioned kind. Tt will be found advantageous to cut. short the legs of the chair, to enable tho mother to stoop more- easily while bathing baby.

A "catch" or "stolen" crop i6 one j that in grown between the regular J nnnual crops of the rotation, ami • which is not considered the main j crop ot the year. Tho chief crop ' of tlio year occupies the ground during tho summer months, while the catch or "interpolated" crop lins its activo period of growth in the autumn, nnd perhaps also in tho spring.- In market gardening tho practice of growing interpolated crops is quite common, but in or dinary agriculture it i3 restricted in cold and temperate climates,-and is only extensively pructlsed in warm countries such'as Italy, where numerous secondary crops are suc cessfully grown after the ordinary corn harvest. In 'Jrcat Britain tho practice is most widely followed in the southern parts of England, where the winters, arc short, the au tums mild, nnd the spring curly.
