The Riddle of Scent. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

The Riddle of Scent. It has been said that the modern inan's chief aim is to be able to travel to nowhere in particular at top • speed.. There is a good deal of truth in the sneer. Non-stop, runs at top speed are nil the rage whether ono travels by land, by water, or through the air. Nature's methods arc, as a rule, more leisurely. She has shown what she enn do in tho case of [ certain birds which will always rc | ruain the despair of tho airman, but so far as most of her ofl'spring are concerned she favours endur ance rather than speed. It is true that many animals- can move like the Yankee's greased lightning, but very few of them can keep it up for long. . A hare can travel at great speed tfor a while, especially I uphill, but left to herself she would ! never dream of doing so; preferring to lob along quite slowly. Why hurry when all time is yours ? Badly hustled, the hare's one idea is to out-pace her enemies by a burst of speed, and then hide, a plan which would answer perfect...

A STRANGE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

A STRANGE CASK. It is doubtful whether there ever was a mysterious disappearance which created quite so tremendous a sensation as was aroused by that of Elizabeth Canning', who disap peared from home on New Year's Day, 3 572. She was either one of the most brazen of liars, or one c»' the mo.st unfortunate of women. Elizabeth, being a general servant, had been given a holiday, and set out from her mother's home in Al dermanbury, dressed in her best, (o pay a visit to relatives. She did not reach her destination however, but disappeared mysteriously. Days lengthened into weeks, but no trace of her could be found. Sho was ad vertised for, a small army of search ers ransacked London, and prayers were offered up for her in the chur ches. On January 29, however, she was found at her mother's door, bleed ing:, emaciated, and in rags. Sho told a story which stirred the whole country, of how she had been attacked by two mon, who robbed her, and bore her oft to an attic, where she was impriso...

THE GOOSE KING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

THE GOOSE KING. ± There ia plenty of money to be made from goose-farming: if you have enough capital to commence the business and sufficient patience to conduct it properly, Probably the biggest goose-farmer alive—the Gooso King, we might call hrin—is a resident--, of . Illinois,. U.S.A., who discovered that, breed ing and fattening these birds was more profitable than owning a pri vate bank. He is a banker by profession. Ten thousand is tho average number of birds, at the farm, which has its own goose hospital and gander prison. . Birds that neglect to conduct themselves in a becom ing manner are promptly incarcer ated in prison, a separate cell for each wrong-doer. Should a -bird break its wing or meet with other misfortune, it is hurried to the hos pital, wliere surgical attention is given. "The Gooso King" "makes his greatest profit by fattening, the birds; breeding them in such a slow process. Ho . buys tiiein, young and haggard, from -all parts of America, and generalQ^rs tojt...

A Wireless Night Mirror. TO MAKE THE SEAS SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

A Wireless Rfght Mirror. * TO MAKE THE SEAS SAFE. A remarkable invention pregnant With useful possibilities is the wire loss long-distance mirror. Its pur pose, in brief, is to convey an image in the same manner that sounds nro now communicated. It is a radical improvement on the old-time camera obscura, a struc ture in which the real image of an object is projected upon a white table or other plane surfnee. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on a mirror all objects located and all happenings occurring- within a much greater area than the camera obscurn, hut it operates at night. Just how the mnchino works lias not yet been revealed, but the ma chine Is known to consist of a wtb of wires attached to a tall mast, and it is this web of wires which receives the impressions and pro jects them on to the mirror located nt th^ base of the mast. j The principal valua of tho new apparatus will be in its applica tion to ships.

PEW PICTURES OF THE PAST. BOURBAKI'S DISASTROUS DEFEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

PEW PICTURES OF THE PAST. 4 BOURBAKI'S PISA3TROUS DE FEAT. One of the rules of war is that when a defeated army I* driven Yn or ft neutr.il frontier it must lay is arms ero it penetrates in to peaceful country. One of the few modern instances of this inter national convention was the retreat of .Oourbaki's army during the Franco-Prussian War, the French men-, numlxjring' 80,000, being dri ven into Switzerland by way of I'ontarlier. The French, desperate at defeat, were loath to lay down their wea pons, and all night long the Swiss soldiers turned back armed strag glers and scattered detachments. On the morning of Feb. 1, 1971, Major de Stockalper, a six-foot Swiss "of herculean strength, took his company to the entry <;f the snowclad pass. The French troops -approached, hesitating, hopeless, and desperate. Drawinghis sword, the giant thundered, "Right! Left! Unbuckle belts ! Disarm !" His determined attitude avoided all dis cussion and dispute. Rifles and ' sabres were th...

MILKING MACHINE TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

MILKING MACHINE TESTS. Bulletin 353 of the New York Ex periment Station at Geneva reports extended tests of the efficiency of the milking machine compared with hand milking; and finds that it^ does not measurably influence the yield of milk. That is, cows in the st-ition herd milked alternately by hand and by the machine in 71 full lactation periods showed no more fluctuation in J ield due to the method of milking than would naturally occur from year to year in a herd milked continuous ly by hand. Ak the station has already proved that clean milk can he produced bv the machine if simple precautions are ob served, the use or non-use of the machine would seem to be merely an economic question whose factors are cost of installation and up-keep, availability and cost of labour, size of herd and general convenience. The bulletin does not dismiss many of these factors, .hut gives some care fully collected data regard in the time necessary in milking by the two methods, figures which shoul...

There was one old gentleman of venerable appearance, who had be come insane through tho shock caused by tho failure of a company in which all his fortune was invest ed, who spent all the day in fly ing a huge kite, in which ho seemed to take as great a delight as any ten-year-old boy.
