A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

LOST NIGHTSHIRT. Some years ago (says a reader) I was employed as "general" iu Scot land. We were having exceedingly cold weather, so com indeed, that every night I carried my bed from my bedroom to the kitchen floor, it being much warmer there. I had just retired, about midnight, one night, feeling rather tired after a long day's work, when, clang, clang, clang! went imy master's and mis tress's 'bedroom bell. Now, I had just begun to feel warm, and as the hour was so late, I did not intend to an swer it; 'but in a few seconds, claug, clang, clang! went that bell again. I hastily rose, and slipped on a skirt, threw a shawl round my shoulders, and opened the kitchen door. My mistress, who Was standing up stairs on the landing, called down: "Annie, where did you put Mr. A's. nightshirt?" "Isn't it under the pillow?" x asked. Then Mr. A. roared: "No; and you'd better come and find it!" Upstairs 1 went and searched every where, ibut all in vain, and wasn't Mr. A. cross, and didn't lie ...

Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at sea, and tlie captain was continually being asked if-there were any danger-by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was aiboard. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. The parson, on. doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you think those men would swear like that if tliey thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not," said the 'parson, and went away satisfied; ibut soon afterwards, getting nervous again, lie rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "All," he said, much relieved, "thank Heaven they're still at it."

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day war will become a thing <3f the past, and universal peace will toe' establish ed. Only a few weelcs ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have >been given to the cause; -but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Damvm, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this lit in with the ideal? As far 'back in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have :been lighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. ' The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as i...

GIRL'S INFATUATION [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

GIRL'S INFATUATION I A remarka.ble story of a schoolgirl': Infatuation for a music hall artist for whom she sacrificed her hair, waf ! told at the Central Criminal Couri 1 (says "The Daily Kxpress" of Janu ■ ary 16), when Frank Harwood, aged | 30, was indicted on a charge of having unlawfully taken a girl named Nellie Dunn, under the age of 16 years, out of the possession of Charles Herbert Dunn, her father. Harwood pleaded not guilty. Mr. Travers Humphreys, who pro secuted, stated that Harwood was a married man, and the girl would be 15 years old on February 20. "She lived with her parents at Streatham," he added, "and in Sep ! tember, 191:2, when she was 13 Vi years old and attending Streatham Modern College, Harwood got into conversa tion with her and some other girls outside the school. He seemed to take a fancy to Nellie Dunn, and asked her to meet him that evening neat Streatham Common. She agreed, but did not keep the appointment. "A few days later she found him waiting for h...

FAMOUS INSTITUTION [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

FAMOUS INSTITUTION An informative sketch of the history of the Foundling Hospital in Blooms bury was given by the Solicitor-Gene ral, Sir Stanley Buckmaster, K.C., in Mr Justice Joyce's Court yesterday, in an action by the Crown against the governors of the hospital (says "The Daily News," January 21). The Court was asked for a declara tion that the defendants were not leg ally entitled to part with lands in Bloomsbury without the consent of the Board of Education (who took the place of the Charity Commissioners under the Charitable Trust Act, 1853), on the ground that the hospital was not a cha rity exempt from the provisions a£ the Act of 1853. The hospital, he said, could not claim exemption unless it was a mixed char? ity—partly maintaned by income from endowments and partly by voluntary subscriptions. At the present day the hospital had an income of upwards of £27,000 a year from its endowments, and received from voluntary annual subscriptions a sum of £11 a year. It also recei...

JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

( " "JAPAN'S* VOLCANOES " A TROUBLED LAND. (By E. Bruce Mitford, P.R.G.S., in "The Daily Telegraph.") With characteristic suddenness the islands of Japan have added one more to the already long list of their vol canic disasters. The unexpected and destructive outburst of the Sakuras hima volcano will serve to remind us that the land which the passing tourist is wont to apostrophise as that of the lotus—"where it is always afternoon"— is one of the most ti'oubled on the face of this planet. Japan has 160 separate volcanoes. Three-fourths of these are "dead." That is to say, they are so regarded official ly—in the maps of the Tokio geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the lie to the recorders of their history. Sakurashima, though not "dead," was generally thought to be "dying." Some ten years ago the present writer was taken to task by a local pundit for describing this volcano, in a little work of reference, as still active. Two years before the great erupti...

FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND On several occasions "The Daily Ex press" has called attention to the in congruities connected with the cham pionship titles that go with the Lons dale boxing belts. There is nothing wrong with the belts themselves, it says, nor with the methods imposed for acquiring them. Although belts do not make champions, the introduction of these trophies into boxing has brought about a most desirable improvement in the sport. To eliminate the belt interest from boxing now would be wiping out one of the greatest inducements for aspirants to fame and fortune to keep on the path to success. To drop belt interest would be to curtail, if not almost entirely era dicate, public interest in the more im portant boxing matches. Conditions have arisen, however, for which the framers of belt rules made no allowance. The rules, excellent in their way, fail to provide for one con tingency, and the fact has lately been brought home with increasing' em phasis. T...

SAFETY AT SEA WIRELESS WATCH CONTINUOUS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

SAFETY AT SEA WIRELESS WATCH CONTINUOUS Important regulations for scouring the safety of life at sea have been made by the International Conference which was convened by the British Government. All the great maritime countries were represented, under the presidency of Lord Mersey, and on Monday (states "The Daily News" January 21) the Conference, which dealt with separate branches by means of five sub-committees, adopted a convention of 74 articles. This will not be published until February 15, but an outline of the principal points has been officially communicated. The results are of the utmost im portance, inasmuch as this is the first time that there has been a conference of all the maritime nations on the subject. The convention must be ratified by the end of this year, and it is proposed that it should come in to operation on July 1, 1915. It is laid down that there must be boats for all. These may be open lifeboats, pontoon lifeboats, and some pontoon life-rafts. As large a nu...

CHARMS OF THE CAT POPULAR PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

CHARMS OF THE CAT POPULAR PfiTS. (By a Cat Lover). "Tile best way to keep a cat is to let it keep itself," seems to be the. general rule anions' most owners o£ thai popu lar pet. This, no doubt, may be all very well for the nondescript "tabbies" and "blacks" which inhabit the majo rity of homes, but it is a most disas trous treatment for all the beautiful highly hied creatures who are gradu ally ousting- the common cat l'rom aris tocratic houses. Once one has felt the artistic delight of owning- a lovely blue, smoke, white, or other Persian, it is almost impossible lo be satislied again with the ordinary short-haired mon grel. There is a general impression that all pure-bred cats are extremely delicate. This wrong idea is due to the fact that so many people are entirely ignorant as to the proper methods of feeding and keeping cats generally. They either let them run wild and feed them irregu larly (if at all), or go to the other ex treme and coddle (hem as if (hey were us lender as ...

TOLSTOI DIARIES [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

TOLSTOI DIARIES The long-drawn-out dispute over the Tolstoy manuscripts has entered upon a new phase, according to the Russian journal "Retch." The main point of contention is that the Countess S. A. Tolstoy refuses to hand over to her daughter, Alexandra Tolstoy, the manu scripts which are being preserved in the historical museum at Moscow. Among these manuscripts is a collection of Tolstoy diaries relating to the closing years of the last century. Alexandra Tolstoy, according to her] father's will, regards herself as the owners of the diaries, but in order to end the struggle she lias agreed to give up her rights of ownership of the diaries and content herself with the rights of publication. She has pro posed to her mother that the diaries be entrusted to a third party having the confidence of both sides, with the object of photographing the diaries and of supplying each side with a copy.

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY , UNITED STATES LEADS. . The United States is the greatest film-producing country in the world (writes L.R., in "The Westminster Ga zette"). It is no exaggeration to say that over 50 per cent, of the world's productions have their origin there. During the first nine months of last year the country exported 29,000,000 feet of film, more than three-quarters of which came to Great Britain. The kinemato graph industry in America must, how ever, be somewhat hampered by the extraordinary censorship conditions pi-evailing, which are in the hands of no fewer than forty-eight separate and distinct jurisdictions. ' Though America is responsible for most of the film-producing, Great Bri tain is easily first in the matter of dis tribution, quite 80 per cent, of the world's pictures being "released" here. This means employment for many thousands of Britons in offices, theatres and show-rooms, and is a striking ex ample of the advantage of freetrade. On Wednesday evening nex...

NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING KJESULTS CJOAIMED The excitement created among doctors by the radium treatment of cancer (says the "Central News") will probab ly be overshadowed at an early date by the announcement to the medical profession of an astonishing operation now being performed at Guy's Hospital, which in the near future is bound to re volutionise the whole practice of opera tive surgery. The operation so far has been ap plied to cases of certain forms of tu j berculosis, and so successful has it proved that it has pow been accepted at Guy's as the correct treatment for this disease. The principle of the treatment, the "Central News" was informed by an eminent surgeon, is the removal of the cause of the disease. For long it has been recognised that the excessive mul tiplication of noxious bacteria in the larger intestine and the inability of the body to eliminate them was the pre disposing cause of many diseases. The Metchnikoff sour milk treatment, which purported to purify this ...

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

living without air or food. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as -well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or .food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superfluous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. >The baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or. guide Jt. In its ibrain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the time it ...

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARSi 'Damages of- £500 for breach of pro mise are claimed by Miss Emma Ma haney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. John Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a (Jivil War veteran, in a suit she has brought at Paterson, New Jersey. Miss Mahaney says that the last she saw of her fiance "was in 1863 as he was leaving for the Civil War. She never .married, believing that some day the sweetheart of her youthful days would return to claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting -with him, she was overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf,' who informed her that he had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the spinster alleges the vet eran wooed her with all the ardor which characterised him before the ■war, and finally he proposed mar riage. She made all the preparations for the ceremony at great expense. When everything was ready Mr. Wolf wrote saying that the marriage could never take place. Miss Mahaney bases her cl...
