Value of Uncooked Food. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

Vaiue of Uncooked Kood. There can be no doubt that fresh fruits, nuts, and other fresh and uncooked vegetable food, conta'n something which is absent from food which has been dried, suited otherwise preserved. Sailors wht- J bodies havo been reduced to a n. st pitiubla state by scurvy reco-er with most astonishing- rapidity v. v. on frosh fruits and green vegetable are added to thoir dietary. No in vestigator lias yet shown just wluit this necessary element is, but tin., it exists bus been clearly shown by illustrations. Careful experi ments havo shown that frosh jukes' possess the power of destroying germs, especially thoso which ^aro capable of growing in the alimen tary canal. Cooked fresh juices possess this property also to some extent, but by no means to so great an extent as do uncooked fruit juices.

Trouble From Tins. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

Trouble From Tins. Many housewives are suspicious of tinned foods, useful though, the latter arc. On opening a tin, at once plunge into the contents " a bright steel knitting-needle, and let it remain for a minute. A steel knife would do, but it must be quite clean. If copper poison is present it is immediately deposited 011 the steel. This test never fails. Other precautions are : Never ac cept a tin which is dented or bulg ing, or which even looks ancient. Nor if the tradesman takes if from his window. Tinned goods make a brave display there, but it's the wrong place to keep them. All tin ned goods, both in shops and in tlm house, should be kept in a cool, dry place, away from the direct t .sun, or the contents deteriorate, j Do not buy tinned goods which ' hear no maker's name. | And, when you have opened a l.in, | never allow the lish, or whatever it | contains, to remain in it. Empty at once into n dish. These precau tions observed, you can safely ""help out" a meal with tinned...

GIRLS IN THE SADDLE. EXPERIENCES DESCRIBED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

GIRLS IN THE SADDLE. EXPERIENCES DESCRIBED. Three girls, riding astride at the Royal Agricultural '^how' in Sydney, won many prizes and attracted much attention. Each had been accustomed to horses since babyhood, and had broken-in animals for her own use. Describing their experiences and methods, the young riders agreed that the only way to effectively manage horses was to love them. Miss Alice M'Culloch, who gained six first prizes and three seconds, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Colin M'Cul loch, who have been living for many years at Woodlands, near Stawell. She is one of the new school of horsewomen who ride astride. She rides to hounds on her powerful grey hunter, in an at tractive costume, with short habit, bowler hat, and high boots. She was the first woman to appear in the Irish hunting field riding astride. That was four years ago. When the hounds were in full cry there were many people who prophesied her, downfall. In fact, big bets were made on the event. However, the A...

A silence fell on the two, and thus they stood for a brief space in the moonlit, scented garden, their eyes downcast, their ears deaf to the mur mur of the sea and the echoes of dis tant revelry. Speech would not come to Dick. He was thinking of the poor girl's words, and to himself lie ad mitted that they were partly true. He had been carried away by en thusiasm and hope, but. now he was face to face with Round reasoning. There might be no secret exit — no steam-launch. And even if. he found them, and within five weeks, a thou sand things might happen to prevent escape from the Island. " Mary, I will be frank with you," he said.

In "Walks and People in Tuscany," Sir Francis Vane'tells of their surprise when an old woman appeared and announced that she had come to make arrange ments for the journey. They con cluded she must be the mother of their guide, and bargained with her accordingly. ..What was our amazement to lenrn that -this'Velderly: dame was our de stined leader, 'and, indeed, she was goi up for the fray in long boots and short skirts with a workman like-lookiiig. stick. 4 On we tramped, she always ahead, walking . with fine military swing j which a Life Guardsman might | have envied.

YARRA BANK TALK. NEW CHURCH MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

YARRA BANK TALK. NEW CHURCH MOVEMENT.' Mary strange philosophies are ex pounded on the Yarra "Bank on Sunday afternoons. If people will foregather to listen to strange theories, often so strangely expounded, will they not listen to the greatest of all philosophies, Christianity ? The Church of England's Men Society is determined to put the matter to the test, and on Sunday after noon the first service was held. Mem bers assembled outside St. Paul's Cathedral at 3 o'clork, and marched down to the spot chosen for the service Prayers and hymns were followed by a short addrtss by the Rev. Frank Lynch. His subject was the universal appeal of Christianity. Why was it, he asked his listeners, that, while so many philosophies had raised their voice in the world. Christi anity alone is known to the man in the street, finding its way into every corner of the earth ? Pfato, Aristotle, Marcus Aurelius, and many others had taught great truths, but they aroused little interest in the average man,...

CHAPTER XXVII. THE MESSAGE IN THE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

CHAPTER XXVII. THE MESSAGE IN THE NIGHT. | From a troubled dream of far-off England, in which, things real and unreal were strangely Jumbled to gether, Dick was suddenly wakened by a gentle shake and by the sound of his own name softly pronounced. He sat up in bed, half persuaded that what he had felt and heard be_ long-ed to his dreams. But lie was quickly undeceived. By the moonlight that stroamed through the window he saw the figure of a man standing over him—a man whdse features were in too deep shadow for recognition. "Is it you, Volborth ?" he asked, jumping to the conclusion that his visitor was the Russian. "What's wrong ?" "It is- not Volborth," was the whispered' reply, "but it is a friend. Hush ! Make no noise. Do I address Monsieur Valentine ?" "Yes, that's right," said Dick. He observed that -the stranger was a mere lad, and that he spoke with a foreign accent. "Who are you ? What do you want ?" he adde<l. "I want you, monsieur. You must come with mc. It is f...

CHAPTER XXVIII. THE FIGHT ON THE CLIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

CHAPTER XXVIII. THE FTGI-IT ON' THE CUFF. | The Spaniard- and his companions were unprepared for what happened next.. Dick had listened to the words of doom—words that seemed to burn his brain like fire—with feelings that defy description. It was a dreadful fate that he was about to meet, and he knew that the sharks would in deed hide all evidence of the crime. But even more torturing than the fear of death was the thought of his enemy's triumph—the knowledge that tho ruffian wpuld live to pursue his evil designs unmolested. As the vision of Mary's scornful face roso before his. eyes, goading him to mad ness, the young Englishman put all his strength into one fierce effort to free bis arms. And with savage do light he felt the strained cords loosen and slip. It was just then that Montejo stop ped aside, having finished speaking. And almost at the same instant, be fore the fatal sign could bo given, Diclc whipped his right arm free, shook the cords to the ground, and tore the-gag fro...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. WHEY OR SKIM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. 4 WHEY OR SKIM MILK. The relative value of whey and skim milk for the purpose of rearing calves or making pork is an ever green topic for dispute in dairying circles. Generally the varying deci- , sions arc arbitrary, and the result of casual experience, and therefore a test made at the Ontario Experimen tal Station is very interesting. Five groups of pigs were taken for the purpose of demonstration. J To group 1 was fed about 2Jlb. of skim milk to every pound of barley and frozen wheat, to which pollard j was added. That was called meal, , and every group got the same meal, j Group 2 was fed an equal quantity in pounds of butter milk and meal, i Group 3 was fed common cheese fac tory whey in place of skim milk, and the same ration of meal. Group 4 , was fetl whey that had been run • through the separator to take out' the butter-fat (three-tenths of 1 per ' ccnt per 1001b), and meal as . the rest.
