Honesty Insured Here. BEHIND THE SCENES IN A FIDELITY GUARANTEE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
Honesty Insured Here. ■ ^ BEHIND THE SCENES IN A FI DELITY GUARANTEE OFFICE. People think that when a: society guarantees', for.. a consideration, a man's fidelity, it, at aiiy rate, be lieves. that honesty is not ex tinct.- Dear, dear ! As a fact, it often' stands bond for somebody whom it would not trust alone with ; the potty cash.; And it can woll i a fiord to do so because it gets an Indemnity from the man's relatives. ■ By some means a worthless rascal obtained a Poor Law appointment, and a certain oflico guaranteed his honesty to th# extent of £500. In less than six months he bolted with over £-400, which tha insurers had to pay. Not a penny, how ever, did they lose. The runaway's j unfortunate relatives reimbursed the society in full. Contrary to popular belief, a so ciety nearly always insists that a J warrant shall be taken out for an embezzler. This' is -done, not in the interests ' of justico—for who ever knew a guarantee society ac tually prosecute ?—but for self-pro te...
AN EXCELLENT SALAD (GERMAN WAY). [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
AN EXCELLENT SALAD (GER MAN WAY). When a green salad is difficult to got, one nnide of potato is a pala table accompaniment, to cold moat. It is a common mistake to allow the boiled potatoes to get cold. It is "most essential, if they have be corno cold, that they be reheated before sliced, and put into the dress ing, otherwise the absorption will not properly take place. It should consist of equal parts of oil, vine gar, and boiling water, pepper, and salt to taste, a few minced capers, or chopped gherkin, or some boned anchovies; a little minced onion may likewise bo added with advan tage ; so, too, a little chopped celery. It will be seen how easy it is' to vary, the flavour.of potato salad, by adding to or otherwise omitting any one or inoro of the ingredients named. Acfter mixing the ! salad ought to stand for a few min utes iu front of the fire to aid the absorption of the dressing. Of course; it is eaten cold.;, but should not be kept too long'before use.
Ladies' Column. SOME GOOD RECIPES. MACARONI. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
Ladies' Column. j SOME GOOD RECIPES. HACATtONI. It is said that macaroni la not meant to be dressed as a "sweet," and in Italy, I am told, it Is never served in that form. Sweet dishes mado of it are occasionally sent to table there, witness tho following recipe : A quarter, of a pound hi ma caroni, one and a half pints of milk, three ounces of sugar, tho thinly pared rind of a lemon, throe-quar ters of a pint of boiled custard, and a grate of nutmeg. Boll tho milk : add tho sugar, lemon-rind, and macaroni cut into three-inch lengths; and simmer slowly until tender, but not broken. Put the whole into a deep pie-dish, and when quite cold pour over the prepared cold cus tard, grate it with nutmeg, anil serve. Sufficient for four or five persons. When cold suppers are served in stna.d of late dinner, to givo the domestics :mor,e leisure on Sunday, puddingB of the kind described are very acceptable. Considerate mis- I tresses frequently arrange to change | the dinner hour on Sunday from...

The Work of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
The Work of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. In a building at tho corner •! Downing'Street and Whitehall, in ft bright, comfortable room furnished like oi library, three or four elderly gentlemen aca seated at a. horse shoe table. A barrister in robes is addressing them from a kind of lectern. Less than half-a-doz«n other people, including a , couple of at tendants in evening dress, are pro sent. The occasion is a sitting of tho Judicial Convmittea of th« Privy • Council—tha court of appeal for the whole Empire. — I The Judicial Committee, of which the Lord Chancellor is tha head, may sit for weeks on and without receiving any notice in the Eng lish newspapers, savo perhaps in '"Die Times" law reports.

With the Brand of [?] BUSY DAYS AMONG THE CATTLE ON AN AUSTRALIAN RANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
With the Brand of 4 BUSY DAYS AMONG THE CATTLE OX AIV AUSTRALIAN It AN OH. It has been well said that in cer tain parts of Australia there aro just two main industries, cattle raising and "cnttle-dudinjj." Tho diiference is that one man, the one enguged in the "raising,'' breeds the cattle ; the other brands them—with his own brand. Tho "duffer's" programme is first to take up a small piece of country ou the margin of a big man's sta tion, then buy a small stock of breeders, say 100 head. Sometimes, too, even his alleged breeders may be working bullocks—anything, in fact, that answers to the descrip tion of "cattle." A capital of £200 will sec him well on the way to a fortiine. All he now has to do is to "sit tight" Und avoid company. The average pastoralist. does not employ a suffi cient number of men to "brand up" his calves as they are born—it would ! be next door to impossible for him i to do so, in view of the immense! size of his holding;—and consequent- ] ly"the "duffer" plac...

PARLIAMENT AND PEOPLE. PRESTIGE OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
PARLIAMENT AND PEOPLE. PRESTIGE OF MEMBERS. u This fellow is wise enough to play Ihe fool-; and to do that well requires a kind of "wit," said Shakespear, and no doubt Mr Higgs now realises the truth of the utterance. Last week he re moved the mace from the table of the House, and hid it under one of the benches; on Thursday he apologised, and his action may be dismissed as a foolish jest, borne of all-night sittings. But those sittings were due to the dis play of narrow party spirit, and led to acts much more serious than the prank of which Mr. Higgs confessed himself the perpetrator. To tamper with the Speaker's papers, to lock doors which open into a chamber in which a division may be taken at any time, are offences the gravity of which was admitted by the leaders of both parties. It is worth while to consider last week's happenings and the record of the present Parliament as it affects the prestige of members. Members of the two chambers were returned just a year ago; they have ...
