Which End of a Post Should be Up? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

Which End of a Post Should be Up ? 1 It is a very common belie/ among' farmers that a post jj'ill last longer if sot in tlio ground the reverse or the way it grew in the tree, in other words, with the butt-cud up. Accordingly, one sees many posts, | especially end and gato posts, with Lho small end down. Tho supposi tion is that sap in a treo is al ways ascending, or at least that it is easier for tho sup to go up than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, there fore, renders it less liublo to decay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can /low in either direction with equal facility and tho popular no tion .to tho contrary is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by (lie Ohio Agricultural Ex periment Station (says tho "Scien i tiJio American") and the above ques tion was considered. One fence in particular contained 15(3 black lo cust posts, o...

Tommy's Hobby. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

Tommy's Hobby. ♦ The following happened in n Man chester school recently. The tea cher had been speaking in unique and valuable collections of objects of art nnd interest, and spoke of the fabulous wealth that had been expended by some of the collectors on their peculiar hobby. Thinking- of some idea 01 the char acters of the members of his class in this direction, he asked them what they thought thoy would like to collect if they had plenty of money. Up went the hand of a boy who was not noted for particular bril liance—in fact, answers from him were very scarce on any subject ; ao this opportunity was seized by the teacher. "Well, Tommy, and what would you collect '!" "Rents, sir," wa* the prompt re ply The lesson was changed, and that teacher is recovering- from the shod;. . .Mine. I'liimmarion, wife of M.

FEDERAL ISSUES. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

FEDERAL ISSUES? THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. Through the Governor's speech, for which they are responsible, ministers have hurled a diiect challenge at the opposition. As to the policy which they have pursued since they took office, the friends of Mr. Cook and his col leagues may differ, as friends do whatever Course those in authority adopt. But all Liberals, no matter what their own preposessions or interests, will admit that ministers deserve the credit given . to those who having put their h-ind to the plough refuse to look back. As soon as Labor made it clear that it would not allow Parliament, elected in 1913, to do any useful work, the Govern ment devoted its energies to the one great end, the securing of a double dis solution at the earliest possible moment. Under the hard and fast party system which it thrust on a reluctant Com monwealth, Labor cannot allow the Ministry to do any good which may be prevented or delayed. Every service which Liberals do Australia strengthens their c...

Animal Prize Fights. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

Animal Prize Fights. At Gwailor< a native stalfo of Central India, combats of animals are the chicf entertainment got up to amuse the visitors, says a tra veller. The rams showed the best fight of all. Let fly from opposite -«nds of the circle, they met in the centre of their tremendous course, the repeat ed dull thud of their horns echoing for days after in my ears. A white ram was produced, which was held back with difliculty, springing and showing fight to all the rams that came near him. .He proved too strong and heavy for all the others, and they fled in terror before liitn. Then he would take a mean advantage of their retreat and go after them, butting at their backs and sides and turning them con temptuously over. The traveller also .saw a snake pitted against a .mongoose, but, curiously enough, little fury as the mongoose is, he refused to touch the very handsome spotted snake which was first put in with him, but retreated at every hiss. The second and smaller one...

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. ^ Most of us suppose that we sleep because wo nrc exhausted. Hut J)f. Clnpareclo, the Swiss physiologist, has just advanced a new theory, which is to the clYect that we sleep ia order to avoid being exhausted. The theory is that sleep, instoud of being the result of fatigue, is an impulsive self-disinfection which tlio body conducts in order to get rid of the waste products before they have time to produco exhaustiou. .Tust as combustion of fuel for the production of heat and energy is always attended by ashes and slag, so the sTow combustion which pro duces heat and energy in the body is likewise attended by waste. "Sincc the senses never voluntarily come to rest or • shut themselves - of! from the outer world, a point would eventually be reached when tlio or ganism. would perish as a victim of general nerve exhaustion. In or der to hinder this Nature arranges betimes, i.e., before exhaustion can seriously injure the organism, to set in motion tha...

RHUBARB. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

RHUBARB. f | Hhubarb comes in very opportune ly between the stored wiuter fruits and the fresh fruits of summer. But, just because it is so useful, it is apt to be abused ; one gets too much of it in some form or another, | generally tarts or pudding for dinner and stew for other meals, it appears on the table every day ; while, from a mistaken idea of its exceeding wholesomeness, it is almost forced on children and others who do not care for it, and to whom it is un wholesome. As a matter of fact, rhubarb is not good for everybody on account of the acid it contains, which is generally oxalic, very differ ent to the mild malic acid of the ap ple or gooseberry. It should never he touched by gouty persons, and those ' who are delicate in anj way should partake of it in moderation. On the other hand, however, strong and healthy people may rat as much of it us they care for, and it will be very benefi cial to them, acting as a blood puri fier in the same way as other vege tables and fre...

LIME AND CLOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

LIMB AND CLOVKR. In. this abundance of talk on tho iiae of lime on land, it is well for us to establish certain well known prin ciples in our mind to start with. 1'." That we should not use burned or cjuick lime, unless thoroughly air slacked, becausc of its caustic pro perty "whereby it eats up -the humus or vegetable matter in the soil, thus robbing it of its best nitrogtifl holder. 2. That our main object should be to use limo in order that we may in crease the capacity of our land to grow clover or alfalfa. On these two points we must de-1 pend for a proper rotation, for through them we increase the nitro gen in the soil. Once get our lanrl to producing abundant and sure crops | of clover or lucerne, then we have the key, with proper management, to further enrichment of the land. Hence wc should use ground limestone first of all for the purpose of growing I clover or lucerne. If we keop these principles and objects in mind we will be sure not to go wrong..

FAREWELL SOCIAL. TO MR. AND MRS. WALKER. The farewell social, tendered to Mr. and Mrs. L. Walker, who recently left Natimuk for Martoa, was a success in every way. There was a good assem blage of citizens, representative of all classes. Mr. A. Barker, who presided, said they had met to do honor to Mr. and Mrs. Walker on the eve of their re moval to Murtoa. First of all, he had to apologise for absence of Dr. Bird, who was to act as chairman, but who was laid aside with sickness ; also Mr. J. Sudholz, chairman of the school committee, who was away on holidays. Personally he had, as a member of the school committee, come in contact with Mr Walker a good deal, and that gentleman had been in a large measure responsible for the many improvements carried out at the school. Compare the conditions under which children were taught 20 years ago and those obtaining now. Then there was a miserable, ill ventilated room ; now, there was a fine, well ventilated building, with the interior walls de...

VALUE OF RIPE APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 1 May 1914

VALUE OF RIPE APPLES. The. old idea that apples were the favourite fruit of the gods is a.plau sible theory. The freshness of youth was ever possessed by those who made apples their prine.ipal diet. Cer tain it is that there is no food so valuable. Apples nourish the brain and spinal cord. They contain phos phorus, albumen, sugar, gum, chloro phyll, malic acid, gallic acid, vege table fibre and water. They cure gout and rheumatic disorder, ami ex ercise a beneficent influence on the liver and stomach. Ripe apples and bread as a diet will do more to re stnrc health than drugs. -"Family Doctor." "I went under an operation yester day." "You surprise me. Was it serious?" "I had a growth removed from my head. "My LroiMlncss ! And here you are about, and looking really well."
