HOME RULE BILL PASSED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
HOME RULE Bill PASSED. o The resumption of the interrupted debate on the third reading of the Home Rule Bill was responsible for the House of Commons being crowded on Monday afternoon. The Prime Minister announced that the Government intended to incorporate in the Amending Bill any settlement which might be reached before it was introduced, If no settlement were arrived at before then the Bill would contain the offer he made in the House on 8th March. Speaking on the motion for the third reading of the Home Rule Bill, Mr. Bonar Law declared that Mr. Asquith's statement had not altered the essential factors of the situation. Therefore further discussion would be ridiculous, and he urged that the division be taken without delay. The Prime Minister replied that the indignation of the Opposition was due to their want of imagination. He did not desire a better mandate for a measure than the confidence of a majority of the House of Commons The division was then taken, with the following r...

Lifting Power in Growing Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
Lifting1 Power in Growing Plants. T The rapidity with which drooping .leaves revive under a shower shows the extraordinary quickness with which plant roots take up water and drive it through the stem to the uppermost twigs and leaves. A simple way of discovering how rapid ly this takes place is by watering a white iris with a blue solution.. In a few hours its white flowers will be streaked with blue. The power exerted by the roots and stems of growing trees is almost incredible. The roots of a young oak are known to have lifted a block of granite weighing G£ tons. The lifting began in the fifth year of the tree's growth, and withing the next seven years the stone was raised more than eight' inches. This remarkable feat has been exceeded by the American swamp cypress, which throws out immense but tresses around its stem. A barge loaded with bricks was wrecked on one of these buttresses in the Okla waha river, and si.e years ls'ter the growth of tiie tree had lifte" the wreck above w...
WAGGON BURIED IN MUD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
WAGGON BURIED IN MUD. Though it had rested in the bed of the.river for 25 years, the greater por tion of a waggon was recovered from the-Namoi at Narrabri a few days ago in a state of excellent preservation. The discovery was made by workman who, under the supervision of Mr, J. / A. Jackson, are building a new bridge over the stream. When they were making excavations for the bridge foundation the whole vehicle was un covered, and inquiries showed that 25 years ago it had been wheeled to the •ide of the river from Mr. Buchanan's Killarney Station, and pushed over by a party of shearers who were on strike, or by a parly of sympathisers of the strikers. The waggon was covered by about 8ft. of mud. and was hauled up by the flying fox. TUe wheels and foci en were ' in excellent condition, and if care had been taken the wnole of the waggon could have been removed. But it was ^JOt the idea of furthering archaeological - Research that the men were engaged in. The renqovai of the wheeis allo...
OUR DEFENCES. ADMINISTRATIVE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
: OUR DEFENCES. «. — ADMINISTRATIVE WORK. General Hamilton's report on the ; military forces of the Commonwealth shows that in the matter of defence . ; . there is much for the Liberal Ministry ' to*do. VVhen in office the Labor party displayed a praise-worthy desire to lay the foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Australia safe from foreign attack. But, so much said, it has been frankly pointed out that much of General Hamilton's report is a condemnation of past business methods, a plea for wiser administration iti the future. The General insists that' Australia's army must have a business branch under a comptroller, with a quarter master general as second in command. Itwould be amongst the duties of this branch to watch expenditure closely, to Bee that Commonwealth thousands go ■where need is greatest, net necessarily were demand is most urgent; It would have to decentralise, to establish a pension scheme, to bring about closer co-operation between the Defence a...
Incombustible Linoleum. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
Incombustible Linoleum. 1—.— The manufacture of incombustible linoleum, or, to speak more accu rately, of linoleum that burns with difficulty, has been a goal long aimed at bj' linoleum factories. The at tempts previously made have been based on the plan of adding; incom bustible matter, such as asbestos or ammonium salts, to the mass during the process of fabrication. Fax more promising is a new schcme, described in ''Technische j ■Monatshefte," in which magnesium] carbonate is added to the mass. All the carbonates have the property of giving off carbon dioxide when heated at high temperatures. This, as is well known, is a very heavy J gas, which does not rise, but creeps along the floor. For this reason in case of a fire it would tend to cut off the supply of air from the lino leum. Magnesium carbonate is cho sen because it breaks up at lower | temperatures than any other car I bonate. The principal involved is, of course, one commonly used in the manufacture of chemical fire exti...
A Huge Stadium. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
"Like nothing else more than the Roman Colosseum is the huge sta diunr contemplated for the College ■ of New. York. This is the gift of Adolph Lewisohn, a copper million aire, and is designed to be a cre dit not only to the college, but also to the great city itself. The stadium will be 400ft. long and 350ft. broad, and the great tiers of seats will take up half an ellipse, life the Roman Colosseum.. There will be seating room for 6,500 per sons and standing room for 1,500 more. From any seat the specta tor • may see the baseball game or the football or the track races, or witness a Greek play.' The land slopes to the cast. Spec tators will enter at the top of the tiers and walk down to. their seats. A great gallery- att the rear banked with columns will provide the stand ing room and.1 coinpletetho/picture.. This is to be "painted in Fompeian red to add to the illusion that New York has been ^transported to Rome. The games or Hie plays' will bo framed in a picture, as it were.

A Plant-Food Percolator. * Obtain two butter tubs and bpro, a large number 'of j-in. holes in the bottom of one, then cover the perforated part with a piece' of fine brass gauze (Fig. 1), tacking tho pauzo well at the corners. The other tub should bo fitted with a faucet of some kind—a wood faucet, costing about ' 3d. will answer tho purpose. Put the first tub on top of tlie other with two narrow .strips between them-:(Fig. 2).: Fill the tuU, about three-fourths full, "with* well packed horse manure, and pour water on it until'-it-is well soaked. When the water has -per colated through into the, lower tub, it is ready-, to use on house and garden -plants and is better than plain water, as it adds both fer tilizer and moisture.
Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
Then the Judge Laughed. —t — HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is tho oratory of counsel at times, but one would have some difliculty, perhaps, in finding a more amusing example of highfalutin legal, language than the following, which is quoted from "Law and Laughter" :— " ' Slander, gentlemen,' said the learned counsel, in a libel action, ' like a boa-constrictor of gigantic size and immeasurable proportions, wraps the coil of its unwieldy body about its unfortunate victim, and, heedless of the shrieks of agony that come from tha utmost depths of its victim's soul, loud and reverbe rating as the night thunder that rolls in the heavens, it finally breaks its unlucky neck upon tho iron wheel of public opinion ; forcing him to desperation, then to madness, and finally crushing him in the hideous jaws of mortal death.' " No less mousing was the address of the American Judge Rodgers to a prisoner who had been convicted in his court in Louisiana. "pri soner. stand, up!" he said...
THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
THE DAIRY ——+ ONE OP THE -EFFECTS OF THE; COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. \ J It takes time to see a thing on all its sides and especially to test its [results. It is so with these cow-test . ing associations. A Wisconsin sub- ■ scr'iber writing us recently said that one of the most important efTccts ol cow-testing was that it tests out the cow owner as well as the cow. "That is the reason," he said, "why you' see so many farmers unwilling to en gage in it. They are afraid of them selves as' well as their cows." That's a pretty sharp criticism, but we art. confident it is a true one in mans cases. There is such a lot of farm;,? ers keeping cows who have-no pride i in their business, who are willing tc | do business with a lot of inferior.-, money-losing cows, provided thej i thought their neighbours did not j know it, that it is hard to react i them by any appeal to sound busi ' cess principles. Any other class of men would have ;a horror in keeping, for instance, j ! stack of goods or set...
FOOTBALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
FOOTBALL MOTES. Minyip visited Horsham on Wednes day, when competitions was opened for the main-line trophy. The all blues made an excellent start, beating Hor sham against the wind, arid at half-time ■ the were 12 points in the lead. Hobson was disabled by a kick in the ankle and Minyip finished with 17 players. At three-quarter time Horsham had pulled up, and were only a point behind. The game in the final quarter was cramped, and the light-weights had a bad time, Horsham finishing as winners by 7.8 against 4.10. The conspicuous players for Horsham were Swindells, Errington, Fortington, and Coutts ; whilst for Minyip Rossitor(in the ruck), O'Rourke and Symes distingushed them selves. Siawell delighted their supporters on Wednesday by defeating Ararat for the main line trophy—the first time they had beaten them for five years. The first quarter ended in favor of the visitors by four points, and at half-time the scoring was level. At three-quarter tima Ararat was leading by 5 points...

COMPLIMENTARY SOCIAL. PRESENTATIONS TO THE MISSES GATES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 29 May 1914
COMPLIMENTARY SOCIAL PRESENTATIONS TO THE MISSES GATES. When two popular young ladies (sisters) in a community simultaneously resolve to sever the social ties which have pleasantly existed for many years, by selecting residences in distant parts, it is natural that local feeling should be exhibited by their associates. And so, when it was recently announced that Miss Georgina and Miss Rosina Gates, two daughters of Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Gates of the Commercial Bank, would be leaving Murtoa at once—Georgie to reside at Mannum, and Rosie at Werribee—a wave of genuine regret was felt at their departure. These two young ladies had been associated for the last twelve years with every local function that merited the assistance and support of the fair sex, graduating from their teens through the Girls' Friendly Society, Children's League, Church of England Choir, and as willing workers on ladies' committees for all deserving movements, up to accomplished and charming womanhood, and so have ma...
