Of Interest to Mac. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

Of Interest to Mac, ; i • There was no doubt about the fact that Jack MacFaddy was a Scotsman. Last year, when journeying to the country on an important errand, he left liis purse, containing nearly £100 in gold and silver, at the railway station from which he started. He telegraphed the fact on his ar rival, and the purse was kept till his return a month later. It was a young clerk who handed .7 ockie MacF. his wee purse with the "spondies" as lie net foot out of the train, and certain wild hopes were making that young man's heart heat a trifle unevenly. But our canny .Scot counted his money unheeding, and ' when. he'd finished lie looked up long and sus piciously at the young man. "Isn't it right, sir ?" stammered the latter, in bewilderment. "Richt—richt : fl.'.s richt enough; but where's the interest, moil V" was MacFaddy's stern retort. A mixture that will remove the grease from Lhe finest fabrics is made of one quart of rain-water, two ounces of ammonia, one tea spoonful of sa...

Leaning Tower of Pisa. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

Leaning Tower of Pisa. Here is a sketch of the famous' leaning tower of Pisa, in Italy, which leans a little more than six feet in eighty. Tho works of this tower were begun in -1174, and the structure was completed towards 'the middle of the fourteenth century. Its height is 167ft. from a base of l'J6ft. in circumference. The peculiarity of the inclination is not i duo to accident but to the plau on which the architect constructed the tower. A staircase of 291 steps leads to the top, from which point there is a splendid view. On the third tier of the tower a feeling of vertigo attacks those ascending, and it is this w<hich accounts for many suicides committed hero.

FOOLHARDY GUIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

FOOLHARDY GUIDES. — » The guides who conduct tourists to Vesuvius often go to ridicu* loua risks to amuse their patrons. A favourita expedient is to take an egg and put it into a small fis sure in the mountain side to bo boiled l,y the heat. The tourist is not allowed to leavo the path and go to the fissure, so does not re alise that the guide, in order to reach a point where the trick is practicable, has to walk across a layer of lava which is so tbin that it may break at any moment. Should it do so, the man's legs will go through into actually mol ten lava, with fatal results. lhc Italians seem to think nothing of tho risk, and gladty undergo it to earn a franc, or even for bra vado's sake, to amuse tho tourist who is employing them. One of tho most daring exploits on record is that of a steeple climber, who, some years ago, con ceived the novel idea of celebrating1 tho F.mpcror's birthday by climb ing £he steeple of St. Stephen's at Vienna, and thero hoisting a flag.

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST BRIDGE. A project is on foot for building a bridge across the Hudson River, uniting New York with New Jer sey. The plans submitted contem plate the biggest bridge in the world, and estimate the cost at £3,250,000. Towers nearly as high ns the Eiffel Tower would be neces sary to carry a single span to pro vide accommodation for 400,000 pas sengers per hour. Eight tracks are contemplated, consisting of two for subway traflic, two for elevated, and four for surface trains, while highways to accommodate ten vehi cles abreast are also included. The bridge's deck will be 200ft. wide, and the towers 550ft. above water and L'SOfl. under water, and the height must permit of the passage of the biggest ocean liners. Where screws are driven into soft wood and subjected to considerable strain, they are very likely to work loose, and it is often very dillicult to make them hold. In. such cases the use of glue is profitable. Make j the gbie thick ; immerse a stick at o t half t...

Blood spurted out in an alarming manner, and although the artery was compressed there was a serious loss of life's fluid before the sufferer could reach Dr. Rabl and have the hemorrhage arrested—in fact, it was a narrow escape from bleeding to death. The artery and sinews were drawn together, and Mr. GeofFs arm placed in bandages, since whic...

Easier to Spell. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

Easier to Spell. — It was a bitterly cold night, and the sergeant in charge of the police station was congratulating himself that he no longer had to patrol a boat. His thoughts were disturbed by the entrance of .l'.-c. Pooke, recently from the country. "What, arc you doing off your beat ?" demanded the sergeant. "Come to report a 'orse dropped dead in Nebuchadnezzar Street," grunted the frozen Pooke. "Well, sit down and make out your report at once, and don't waste any time about it !" retorted tile sergeant, who was something of a disciplinarian.. Dovvh sat Pooke and wrote, with much difficulty, for some minutes. "Sergeant," ho said, looking up. "How do you spell Nebuchadnez zar ?" "Jf you don't know, J ain't going to tell you !" once more grunted the officer. Pooke pondered the matter for a considerable time, then rising wear ily, prepared to leave the station. "Where are you going ?" asked his superior. "You'vo not made out the report yet." "Goin' to lugh the 'orse into the 'Igh...

Woman Proclaims Martial Law. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

Woman Proclaims Martial Law. Governor ' West, of Oregon, took strong action recently against the town of Copperfield, in that State, and by means of his secretary, Miss Fern Hobbs, turned every official of the town out of oflice, and for cibly closed all illegal saloons. Ac cording to newspaper reports, Cop perfield had refused to obey the li quor laws, and it was alleged that the mayor and several of the coun cil were interested in a number of saloons, which were being run ille gally. The Governor sent his lady secretary, in order ijot to cause alarm, as it was known that the liquor interests of the town would fight any coercion. The town offi cials laughed at Miss Hobbs - when she demanded, in the name of the Governor; their resignations, but while their attention was being di verted to what they considered the peacoTiil mission of Miss Hobbs, a, trainload of militia' arrived, and quietly took possession of the town. The Governor's edict was then car ried but, and the military- re...

NOXIOUS WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

NOXIOUS WEEDS. At some recent prosecutions under the Thistle Act at Leonyaiha, the police magistrate, Mr G. Read Murphy, offered of series of prizes to the children who bring the largest numbers of rag wort, a plant with which the district is infested, to the head teacher of the State School. As a result the head teacher wrote to say thut so far 19 943 plants of ragwort have been brought 10 him, and that oyer 12,000 were brought in during the first four days. Ap parently, the idea has been very.success ..fully, and the children have tor the time being cleared the district, more or less, of ragwort plants of appreciable size. There can be no doubt that the same idea might be extended to other dis tricts infested by proclaimed weeds with good effect, although in seems hardly fair to throw a new burden on the al ready heavily laden shoulders of the local teachers. If the nnes obtained as the result of the prosecutions were devoted in some suitable fashion as ' rewards for their destruc...
