Cervantes BORN, OCTOBER 10, 1547. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

Cervantes BORN, OCTOBER 10, 1547. The age which gave Shakespeare to England gave Cervantes to Spain. Cer vantes was Shakespeare's senior by 17 years, but their lives were otherwise contemporaneous. Miguel de Cervantes ? Saavedra was born at Alcala de Henares, about 20 miles from Madrid. In 1571 he entered the papal army as a common soldier, and he was pre sent at the great' sea-fight of Lepanto on October 7, 1571, where his bravery attracted the notice of the Commander in-Chlef, Don John, of Austria. In 1576 he received a command in a regiment for the Lotv Countries, but on his voy age thither he was captured by pirates, and remained in slavery for five years. He was ransomed by his family at a coEt which beggared them. Xn 1584 Cervantes married, and wrote poetry and dramatic pieces, which seem to have had much success. The next 20 years of his life were pasted in a struggle with poverty, which almost precluded b'm from writing. In poverty, at Valladolid, the first part of the «B mo...

Nicolo di Rienzi DIED, OCTOBER 8, 1354. Nicolo di Rienzi was the son of a washerwoman. He received, however, a good education, and on reading of the ancient glories of the 'Eternal City,' and comparing them with the terrible conditions that existed at that time, he resolved to devote his life to raising Rome once more to her position. He succeeded in arousing the people against the tyrannies of the nobles, and, taking the old title of 'Tribune,' managed for a, liuic lo restore law ana order. me was not strong enough to hold the Gov ernment which he had created, and be came an exile.

NOTABLE EVENTS An English Bible PUBLISHED OCTOBER 4, 1535. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

NOTABLE EVENTS An English Bible PUBLISHED OCTOBER 4, 1535. Many people have spent their lives working unceasingly so that all the races of the world should have the world's greatest Book, the Bible, written in their own tongue. Not only is it the sacred book of the Christian religion, but it is a wonderful piece of literature, and the task of translating it will be understood when it is realised that it contains 66 separate books of varying lengths. Amongst the many who have been as sociated with this great work there are two who are connected with it this day. Their names are William Tyndale and Miles Coverdale. The former had made a translation of the great work, going back to the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts to do so. He was, however, considered heretie in those days, and his books were burned. Miles Coverdale based his efforts on Tyndale's verses, with the result that there was published at Oxford the first complete English Bible, many passages of which are pre served i...

Lord Tennyson DIED OCTOBER 6, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

Lord Tennyson DIED OCTOBER 6, 1892. The great poet of the- Victorian age, Alfred Lord Tennyson, was the son of a clergyman, and was born in 1809, at Somerby, Lincolnshire. He began to write when he was still a boy, and his first volume of poems was published when he was only 18. At 20, while at Trinity College, Cambridge, he won the Chancellor's prize for a poem called, ' Timbuctoo.' A volume of poems pub lished in 1832 contained such exquisite things as 'The Lotus Eater,' 'The uacy or jsnaiott,' ana 'xue .uream 01 Fair Women.' After a period of com parative poverty he gradually obtained recognition, and when, in 1850, 'In Me moriam' appeared, he took his place as the first poet of England. This beauti ful poem mourns the death of Lord Tennyson's closest friend, Arthur Hal lam, and is perhaps the finest tribute to the memory of a man that has ever been written. On June 13 of the same year he married Emily Selwood, and less than six months later he was ap pointed to the laureateship,...

HAD TO HISS IT. The blazing sun ponred down into the quiet country road, making it too dot even to walk on. Two tramps, who had been stolidly trudging along for miles and miles, suddenly gave vent to wearjy exclamations, and ' threw themselves under the shady boughs of an old oak tree that grew beside the hedge row. They had not been ? there very long when a train of gayly-painted circus vans came rattling round tne bena, causing the two wayfarers to prick up their ears. 'I 'speck that's ole Banger's circus.' remarked one, who lay sprawled against the tree trunk, back to the road. 'It must be one of the largest on the road, now,' he continued. 'Yes, it's a pnrty good-sized one,*' j answered his companion. ! 'Urn!' grunted the otLer. 'I'd like to look at it. What a shame I ain't facing that way!*1

THE UMBRELLA Its Hard Fight World Recognition [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

THE UMBRELLA Its Hard Fight World Recognition In the course of an interesting article on 'The Successor of th^ Sword' John Baresford relates in 'The Nation and Atheneauar* the story of the umbrella. He states: The death warrant of the sword was finally sealed, not by the walking-stick, but by the umbre.'la. In England the use of the umbrella made its way with painful slowness. ' At first it was em ployed simply as a parasol, and as such seems to be known in the 17th century in France and England. The parasol had been used immemorially in the East, and from the East it spread into Europe. But it was not, it seems, till the early years of the eighteenth century that the umbrella was used as a protection against rain in Engand. Kersey's Dictionary, in 1708, d-finefi it as 'a screen commonly used by women to keop off rain.' .'Commonly used by women'' — that was the rub: it was effeminate. Hence that highly sarcastic notice in^the ''Female Tatler' for December 12th^ 1709: 'The young gent...

[?] ROAD CONSTRUCTION ? ♦ ^Will Concrete Solve the Problem? .'However serviceable the macadamised road may liave proved in the past, it i« evident that it does not answer tlie requirements of modern traffic, says **'Beiter Roads.'
