EMPIRE DAY AT MURTOA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914

EMPIRE DAY AT MUSTOA. Empire Day was celebrated in Mur toa on Friday.. The geography and history lessons during school week dealt with the extent and growth of the Empire, and the ideas of the pupils were reproduced in essays whfch were read Friday morning. At u o'clock the ceremony of saluting the flag was gone through in the presence of mem bers of the School Committee and a few parents. Drawn up in three sides of a hollow square the girls stood at attention, the boys a* the salute, as the Union Jack was run to the masthead. Then followed a decl iran'on of loyalty in the following terms :—I love God and iny country ; I honor the flag; I will serve the King ; and cheerfully obey my parents, teachers, and the laws."" 'Ihe singing of the National Anthem was followed by three hearty cheers for the grand old flag. The children were then assembled in the big class room, and the head teacher (Mr. R. Walker) briefly intro duced Cr. Slaughter, President of Dunmunkle Shire. In doing so he s...

SOPHISTICATED PARSNIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914

SOPHISTICATED PARSNIPS. When just plain boiled, this vege table is rarely appreciated, cxcept by persons who have a strong lik ing- . for it. Dressed ns follows, it will prove very relisliable. Feel and boil the parsnips, putting a little fat , in the water they are eooked in. Then, cut them into slices, spread a little butter on each slice. Put the slices into a hot vege table dish, and pour over a cupful of white sauce made with milk, two dessertspoonfuls of flour, rubbed in butter, pepper, and salt to taste. Boil for a minute or two to take off the rawness of the flour. Serve very hot. Curtain-rings sometimes run v'ith great difficulty, and seem to stick to tlie pole. To remedy this, take all the rings off and well rub the pole with fiaradin until it is quite smooth, when the rings may be re placed ; they will-then glide along with the greatest ease. The "Daily Uepublic," one of the native newspapers of Hankow, pub lished "The Pilgrim's Progress" as a serial. ■MMMI ill .

GOOD ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914

GOOD ADVICE. Good advice, we are assured, is never out of season, and we are just now be ing tendered .;uvice by General Sir Ian Hamilton. We are assured by General Hamilton that the world's storm centre is drifting towards the Pacific, and in his opinion there is a probability that in the future (and perhaps not very distant) we may find that we must fi^ht for our lives against the yellow raccs, with whom we could under no circum stances share our land in amity. The general, therefore, thinks that Australia is making a good step in a right direc tion by training all her sous to the use of arms. Perhaps Sir Ian Hamilton was hardly wise when he referred to the Japanese as "people of low ideals and low standards," because he is simply stirring up distrust and suspicion, which in time will assume the concrete form of hatred in the breasts of a race now a sworn ally of Great Britain—an alliance of great import just now when the con trol of the high seas is being so vigor ously challenge...

A THRILLING MEETING. : The Russian was brief and to the ' . point, explaining what he had to say very clearly. Dick was to swim out to the Malta, and through Grenville . obtain an interview with the com , manders of the two cruisers. This conference, it was hoped, would re sult in a speedy, settlement as pro posed in behalf of the conspirators ; which, in substance, was as follows : At 12 o'clock on the next night, by 1. means of a previously-laid torpedo, the thin shell of rock on the seaward side of the cliff was to be .blown up. Through the passage which was cer tain to be opened a hundred marines ; in boats were to advance at .once •. and make a landing straight across the lagoon.

CHAPTER XXXIX. THE SENTENCE OF THE COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914

CHAPTER XXXIX. THE SENTENCE OF THE COUNCIL It was about two o'clock in the morning, and the lower town was comparatively quiet ; at intervals a distant voice, or an echoing footstep broke the silence. This state of peace fulness, the Russian assured Dick, was a sure sign that Carlos had not yet been missed or discovered ; otherwise there would have been a widespread alarm. So the two pushed on hopefully through the dark] and deserted streets, aiming straight for the ap proach to the upper town. They were half way to it when a significant thing occurred. A man stepped from a cross passage, tapped Yolbortla on the shoulder, and drew him to one side. Dick waited in some alarm, while the two held a brief and whispered conversation. Then the stranger hur ried off, and Volborth returned to his companion. "It is bad news," he announced, gravely. "There is a warrant out for my arrest, and a lot of Gore's men have been quietly searching for me. They, are in the neighbourhood now, Valentine."...

CHAPTER XL. THE HEAD IN THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914

CHAPTER XL. THE HEAD IN THE WALL. To be hanped at sunrise next morn ing ! Over and over Dick repeated the words to himself. They throbbed unceasingly through his brain when he sat down on the bench, with his back to the wall, and tried to rea lize what it all meant. At the time of his capture he had anticipated the worst, but somehow it was different now, with the reality staring him in the face. He had heard the sentence and he shrank from death with hor ror and rebellion. He was not a coward, but it seem ed to him bitterly hard to (lie just when the future had turned bright. He had not valued life very much in the past, but it was a thing to be j prized with Lucille to share it. And to lose her ! To be hurried out of the world leaving behind him the woman he loved so passionately — it was a black and torturing thought. lie did not utterly despair, it is true ; but at present, while the im pression left by Gore's visit was so keen, he was in no mood to consider his situation from o...

CHAPTER XLI. AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914

CHAPTER XLI. AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. Almost instantly the door swung gently open, but the Russian, in stead of striking, receded a little in amazement. And both he and Dick exclaimed sharply, lor thej saw be fore them the figure of a woman muf fled from head to feet in a black cloak. This she parted at the top, revealing the lovely face of Lucille Montejo. "Dick !" she whispered, eagerly. "Lucille, you here !" he replied. "Merciful Heaven, what does it all mean ?" "I have come to save you, Dick, if that be possible. Follow mc—ah, you are not alone !" She shrank timidly from the Rus sian. "This is Captain Volborth, my fel low-prisoner," Dick explained. "He is a friend—he is on my side. Save us both, Lucille !" "Come; every moment is precious, Dick," the Spanish girl answered. She led the two bewildered men across the corridor, and thence to the open, moonlit space before the prison. To the left of the outer door, huddled against the wall as though asleep, was the sentry. i "Did you' do...

Mrs. Meggin was stolidly cleaning her windows, and never cast an eye at the little gathering. "Hi, old woman," called out one sallow-looking youth, "when does this house sail ?"
