RANDOM READINGS. "TURKEY AFTER TWO YEARS." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914

RANDOM R]EADINGS. "TURKEY AFTER TWO YEARS." What the Young Turk revolution has really done for Turkey may be realised by the evidence of Mr. D. G. Hogarth, who describes the more striking changes in an article under the above heading in the "Contemporary." Mr. Hogarth, who knew Turkey well, through personal acquaintance extending over twenty years, before the re volution, recently revisited Constan tinople, and appears to have been astounded by some of the outward effects of the new regimne. One thing which the revolution has done he describes as almost a miracle to anyone who knew the old Turkey: It has made the man in the street speak freely and aloud, and look his fellows in the face unafraid and un alarmed. This is no fancy of mine. In former days one was conscious, the moment one left the railway station or landed on the quays of Constantinople, that ,the men in the streets who were not hectoring or cursing or silent were speaking under their breath. Their eyes habitually looke...

An Anomaly of Tides. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914

An Anomaly of Tides. A curious fact, to which the con struction of the Panama Canal calls attention is that a great difference exists in the range of the rise and fall of the tides between the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the Isthmus. The mean level of the oceans is the same on both sides; but at Colon the mean range from high to low water is only about seven inches, whereas at Pana ma it is more than twelve feet. This great difference is explained by the existence of a tidal node, which pre vents the Atlantic tide from entering the Caribbean. Sea. Panama, on the other hand, lies at one corner of the triangular area of the North Pacific Ocean, and in areas of that shape the range of tide is usually great at the corners. Time delivers fools from grief, and reason wise men. The man who makes others wel come will never lack a roof when he most needs it. Bury the past and make each day Sstarting-point towards a higher life. He who would do a great thing well must first have done the si...

GOLF DEFINED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914

GOLF DEFINED. On the terrace of a country club, overlooking a green dotted with sheep a group of non-golfers were taking tea. A male non-golfer, who took his tea through a straw, said thoughtfully "Golf might be defined as billiards gone to grass."? Spleen on the green I'd call it," said a female non-golfler. "Or the last hlic.ker of. the dying fire of athletics," sneered the young football player. "The misuse of land and lan guage," suggested a tennis champion. "No, no, you're all wrong," said a fa mous augler." Golf is simply a game wherein the ball lies badly and it, player well."--Louisville Times.

MOUNTAINS UNDER THE SEA [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914

M[OUNTAINS UNDER VTIE SEA It was at the captain's table on an Atlantic liner that a young woman idly inquired just how far the ship was from the nearest land. Several passengers would have said ofi-hand, "About 800 miles." But the captain referred the ques tion to a quiet gontleman, who look ed at his watch and a chart, and amazed his hearers by answering, "Just about 70 yards." "The land I speak of," continued the captain's friend, "is just 38 fath oms beneath this ship. It is Ilhe summit of Laura Ethel mountain, which is 20,000 feet above the low est level of the Atlantic basin. If it were some 200 feet higher or the sea wore 200 feet lower, you would call it an island." The Laura Ethel mountain, dis covered in 1878, is the uppermost peak of one of the most celebrated of the submarine elevations in the Atlantic. Mount Chancer, at the eastward of it, was revealed to ocean ographers in 1850. Sainthill, which is westward of both, has the honour to be the first mountain discovered in ...

The American at my side stood stark and stiff, looking neither to the right nor to the left, but strai.?ht before him, t'he old man sitting there in his "pomp of circumstance," with his gentle smile, his flowing grey hair. and his faded eye, was for this Puritan the representative of the 'scarlet woiman," and an emlbodi ment of the abominations, cruelties, sins, sorrows, and shams of the religious world.
