LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 March 1913

LADIES' LETTER. An English fashion writer has very happily termed the present tendency of modes as the floppy aspect, and this is just what characterises everything;, even the new hats to a certain degree. To be thoroughly up-to-date one must look "floppy." Even the skirts have this appearance, with the loose dra peries and folds which cause a fulness in the upper part, although' there is the caught-in appearance at the foot. The wrap coats all' seem to he mis fits, they are so large about the shoul ders, while many have sleeves that are apparently just arrangements of folds. Some of them certainly seem to suggest that they will evolve into the dolman; pure and simple. Even the more fanciful coats of the coat-and sldrt costumes have this same, 'loose, unfitting appearance. Of course, they do fit, but they hang in such a manner from the shoulders and droop into folds in a way that is essentially flop py. . . The collars are often large and shawl-like. Generally they do not show very ...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 March 1913

PROM VARIOUS SOURCES, j Because he did not die, Goldblatt, a Spokane jeweller, ha& just brought, an action against his physician for 15,000. dol. Plaintiff alleged that the doctor, told liim he had cancer of the stomach. Believing that recovery was impossible, and wishing to leave his j property in cash, lie sold his jewellery business at a sacrifice, which he estim ates at 1*5,000 dol.', a,nd waited - for death to claim him. Becoming impa tient at his continued presence among the living, he consulted other- physi cians, and was told that he was per fectly well. Hence his grievance. Strange tilings happen. An English exchange tells of a Rural Council in Cheshire (one can imagine the pom pous conservatism of the assemblage) which was worried by labor troubles. The council employed roadmen at a wage of lGs. per week and has lately been worried by frequent applications for an increase. Some good old Tory genius solved the problem, for at a meeting it was resolved "that in futur...

CANNIBALS IN THE NORTH. AUSTRIAN HUNTERS' PERIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 March 1913

CANNIBALS IN THE NORTH. AUSTRIAN HUNTERS' PERIL. Information has reached Melbourne concerning the danger which besets the hunters of Birds of Paradise in German New Guinea. The birds are worth from £10 to £60, and in a good season a hunter may obtain as many as two or three thousand skins, for which he will receive as much as £8,000 in Friedrich Wilhelmshafen. Many hunters enter the forests and are never heard o£ again, their skulls whitening on the roof of a native vil lage, the eye-sookets filled with mud, and set with cowries, their flesh hav ing formed the piece de resistance at a cannibal feast. News has come to hand of an officer of the Austrian army—a splendid spe cimen of humanity, and an accom plished violinist—who arrived 'in* friedrich Wilhelmshafen, and after snaring the hearts of all the frauleins of the settlement by his playing • of Schubert and Beethoven, vanished with a party of boys into the bush. He camped near a native village, and he stayed in spite of the fact ...

CHAPTER XVI. "I am Sir Oracle." Several weeks had. elapsed before Claude received a note from Miss Thurston, asking him to call, as she had something to tell him. He gladly responded to the invi tation, because, notwithstanding all his efforts, he had failed to make any further advance in his investigations. He soon found that he had not call ed in vain. Miss Thurston had some thing 'really important to communi cate, and he listened to her statement with, much surprise. She said:— "I have not seen nor heard of the Professor personally since the seance at which he distinguished himself as a medium, but a young lady frifend of mine has had a strange' experience which she has confided to me; making me think that the man of whom she spoke was the Professor, but you muBt judge for yourself.

Hundreds of men and women, all sufferers from the white plague, are flocking to the Waldorf Astoria in the hope of seeing Dr. Friedmann, tlio Berlin physician, of whose consump1 tion cure they had hoard so much and who has just arrived in New York. Some pathetic scenes were witness ed ;n the corridors of the hotel, many of the victims being in the last stages of the dreaded disease. Mr. Findlay, a New York million aire, offered Dr. Friedmann £200,000 for the cure of his son-in-law, but the offer was refused. The doctor said the rich man's son would have to take his turn with the poor and that he would treat, everybody irrespective of their financial standing. In the course of an interview with a press representative, Dr. Friedmann said:—"I have been working at this cure for 14 years, and in the last two and a half years I have treated from 2,500 to 3,000 -patients.
