THE BRIDE'S GIFT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

THE BRIDE'S GIFT According to an American custom, the bride who has been dowered with gifts innumerable for her wedding day has yet another to receive on her return from her honeymoon. It is a present from her bridesmaids, and figures at all her receptions. Before the bride leaves for her wedding trip the bride's mother claims the coronet of orange blossom, or the little bunches that have caught up the bri dal vei'l. These flowers are then passed on to the bridesmaids, who have the snow white blossoms preserved and pressed, then arranged on a tea tray of beau tiful workmanship, and covered with a sheet of pure crystal. This is the gift which awaits the bride when she returns to take charge of her new home.

H. Cole,' the Coroner, at the Morgue, on De cember 29, found that Van der Yelde met his death through accident.

SPORT AND MARRIAGE WOMEN OF TO-DAY EXPERT STATES VIEWS 92 Fleet, street, Nov. 21. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

WOMEN OF TO-DAY EXPERT STATES VIEWS (PROM OUR LONDON OFFICE.) 92 Fleet, street, Nov. 21. "The Nervous Factor in Women's Health" was the subject of a lecture given this week by Dr T. Claye Shaw, at the Institute of Hygiene. ^he lecturer, as reported, said that the type of 'woman had changed in the last few years; she had become harder In features and. more wrinkled; . her complexion was affected by her, outdoor life; she ;wa-s- more independent, had less reverence for authority and fewer home interests, • was less of a stay-at home, and to some extent had in many instances reverted her sexualJ organi sation. There was no doubt that women could follow an>; kind of a sport in a way. They had not, however, the strength of men, nor could they com pete with them, except, perhaps, in cro quet and ping-pong-, though in a grace ful modification they were excellent. Sport was a bad marriage market; the sporting girl became too like the man and exposed her character to him too much. As a ru...

POLITICIANS ACCUSED "PLUNDER" PHRASE POPULAR [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

. POLITICIANS ACCUSED "PLUNDER" PHRASE POPULAR Politicians in all ages have had. a liking for accusing party rivals of plunder, in a political sense—plunder of power, place, and pay. Mr. W. A. Watt, the Premier, speak ing at Wodonga on December ' 27, compared the Labor Party to bur glars, who had entered the house and helped themselves while the Liberals were having a domestic quarrel. The Conservatives in Great Britain were accused of having caught the Whigs bathing and of having run away with their clothes. The late Mr. William Shiels claimed that the policy he unfolded in his Casterton speech in 18 92 provided a programme not only for his own Go vernment, but also for several suc ceeding Governments. Mr. W. A. Trenwith, who was leader of the Labor Party in the 'nineties, however, accused Mr. Shiels of "lifting" his programme from that of the Progres sive Political League. In 1873 Disraeli wrote to a politi cal friend that the country had made up its mind to close the Gladstone Go...

BOY NATURE STUDIED MANAGER TELLS EXPERIENCES. LADS RISE IN THE WORLD [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

BOY NATURE STUDIED MANAGER TELLS EXPERIENCES. LADS RISE IN THE WORLD "There are other things than appear ance to be taken into consideration when weighing the qualifications and the potentialities of the boy seeking work."'This opinion has been formed by the representative of a business firm who has the control of the boys. Be tween 25 and 40 lads are always em ployed by the firm; the average is 30. "Sometimes they come to me well dressed, nicely spoken, and with such a manner that one would think but ter would not melt in their ,mouths.' They have learnt the game of life early, but, in many instances, they require constant watching. Then a rough-cut diamond might make application. Per haps he is not over-clean, his manners would probably shock a Chesterfield, bis, dress might be more fitting for a scarecrow than for a Beau Brummel, or even for a boy in a city office, and he may be somewhat uncouth in his speech. But the material probably is good. The lad may be able to look one str...

SANITY IN CHARITY KANSAS CITY SETS EXAMPLE. INTERESTS OF POOR GUARDED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

0— ——• KANSAS CITY SETS EXAMPLE. INTERESTS OF POOR GUARDED. Board of Public Welfare is a vague sounding title for a department of mu nicipal government. In some cities it might possibly suggest a sinecure cre mated at the behest of a political boss with friends to supply with motor-cars. But to the people of Kansas City it stands for a commission with a definite humane enterprise, a department under which the work of controlling vice and guarding the interests of the poor is thoroughly organised, if we are to be lieve Alfred Pittman, who writes about it in the Chicago "Tribune." The Kansas City Board of Public (Welfare is not doing anything that has noi been attempted elsewhere; its mis sion is not unusual; but," according to Mr Pittman, it is better organised, has a more systematic programme, and is obtaining more definite results than any other enterprise of its kind in the country. The idea originated in the brain of Frank P. Walsh, a lawyer, and its success is due largely to his...

DOG TAKEN FOR SWIM CHEMIST FOUND DROWNED After Dr. Cole had inquired into the case of Joseph Friend, 40, chemist, who was found drowned in the Yarra on December 20, he found that there was not sufficient evidence to show how he entered the water. Constable S. H. Toomer stated that some pencil writing in a book which was found on the body seemed to show that Friend. was in some trouble, and had been drinking.

I Washington expects various concerns ! to reorganise early in the New Year. | Ah influential section of the A'.neri j can press contends that the decision of j Great Britain and Germany not to be ! represented at the Panama Exhibition | is a manifestation of a secret Anglo ; German agreement to wage a defensive war against American commerce over the whole world.

CABLE BUDGET Imperial Affairs INDIAN UNREST. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

INDIAN UNREST. Lord Harding-e. Viceroy of India, in addressing- an Indian deputation at Calcutta, expressed the hope that the Indian leaders in South Africa would accept the commission appointed to in quire into tlie Indian trouble, and pre pare their case for submission. At the Indian National Congress,! which met at Karachi, the principal j speaker, Mr Visshiodas, said that the South African Cabinet had displayed a sorry weakness, and claimed that In dians were entitled to equality of treat ment with colonials throughout the I I empire. Mr Nawabsyed, of Madras, j who was elected president, declared that the spectacle of a world-wide em- i pi re powerless to restrain an irrespon sible colony was incomprehensible, and j caused dismay to Indians. | Dr "Randall Davidson, Archbishop of Canterbury, preached an important sermon at Canterbury Cathedral, in which he said : "At the present mo ment there seems to be a reversion to such violence, in lieu of argument, which is surely a horrid ...

All the same. I am not fond of New Years. However unpleasant they may have been, I have a certain affection for old years, such as was entertained by Bacon for old wine, old friends, and old books. Like Charles Lamb, I am shy of novelties. I loathe being intro 1 duced to strangers of any kind—men, women, or years. Therefore, I know that when 1914 is 5 brought along and introduced to me I ' will murmur something or other about the pleasure being all mine, blush, stammer, feel horribly uncomfortable, and wish myself back in the middle of 1913. .Of course I...
