PURITY CRUSADE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 February 1914
PURITY CRUSADE A mass meeting of men, to consider what can be done to check immorality, was held at the Willesden Hippodrome yesterday afternoon (says "Tha \Vest minster Gazette" of December 8), and the principal speakers were the Bishop of London and the Rev. C. Silvester Horne. The Bishop stated that the words of Browning, "God's in His heaven, all's right with the world," could nut be said now. We had been given a very good world, and if a mess had been made of it, it was man's fault and not God's. There was plenty of sunshine in the world, plenty of water, and plenty of land. There was a burst of laughter at the reference to land, whereupon Dr. In gram said, "Oh, MLr Lloyd George and I know each other; we are very good friends." He proceeded to declare that if they spoiled the whole thing by crowding in one place and having star vation wages, and by allowing people to live in places not fit for dogs, then that was not God's fault. "If we have made hell on earth with our bodies,"...

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
RECLUSE OF MIAYFAIR In the heart of 'Mayfair there re cently died a lady of considerable wealth, who for nearly 20 years had lived the life of a recluse, almost un known to her neighbors. She was Mrs Julia Macdonald, and she led a solitary existence, attended by only one servant, at a house in South street, Park lanie. In the same street reside Earl Grey, Katherine Duchess of Westminster. Sir Samuel Scott, M.P., and mnany other prominent people,, but Mrs Macdonald seldom left her house, and : in her lifetime no callers were ever allowed to enter her own particular room. For some time past she had been at tended by a West End medical practi-. tioner for bronchitis, and her death, a natural one. occurred suddenly on Fri day (reports the "Dally Express" of December 12). She was' buried at Kensal Green on Wednesday, and her house in South street is . now being thoroughly overhauled. Apparently, the part reserved for her special use has. not been touched for years. She had only one serva...

TIPPING SYSTEM [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
TIPPING SYST Wi [Pro-printed from "The Daily Ex press," of December 23, 1930.) We regret to announce the death of NMr Herbert James Piper, the great re former,' who, seventeen years ago, brought about the total abolition of Christmas-boxes in the British Isles. Writing in these days, when every town has its Piper statue to commem orate our national deliverance .from the tyranny of tips, it is difficult to realise that the great movement had its beginning in a small semi-detached villa at Ealing. Looking back to that historic morn ing of December 26, 1913, one is able to reconstruct the scene. One sees Piper sitting at his breakfast tabld, and receiving the maidservant's mes sage: "It' you please, sir, the gentle man what empties the dustbin has called to wish you the compliments of the season." Piper (the British Museum has his letter telling the story) had already handed over a shilling, with the curi ous resignation of the tir victims of those days, when he was inspired with an id...
KAISER ON "OUR PROGRESS" [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
KAISER ON "OUR PROQRESS" The Emperor and Empress to-day visited the Rathaus. and were wel comed with an address (says Reu ter's Munich correspondent on -Decem ber 16.) In his reply the Emperor said: "Almighty God willed that it should be vouchsafed to our fathers to sow on the blood-drenched battlefield the seed which has borne such glorious fruit. The paths for all German races to un hindered development of their ideal and material forces were then made smooth for all the German tribes. Jn: addition to these favorable preliminary conditions, the present generation had enjoyed the blessings of a long and un disturbed peace. "Perhaps there is justification for asking seriously whether this favor of the times is being rightly used,. whether the sons are worthy of the fathers, whether our patri mony is heing properly developed even: under the strong protection of our splendid defence force on land and water." The Emperor said a glance at the enormous progress of Munich was cal -culated...

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE Drastic regulations to meet the cel luloid danger are made in the report of the Departmental Committee (Eng land) which has been considering the matter. The proposals (says "The Daily News") are calculated to excite alarm among the public and to re volutionise the trade. The danger to the purchasing pub lic, it is pointed out, is increased by the fact that in many cases the na-. ture of the substance is not apparent, and the committee urge that some such words as "Celluloid, inflam mable," should be marked on or at tached to such articles and toys. Boots and shoes, parts of which other than the eyelets and hooks are coated with sheet celluloid, or to which celluloid buckles are attached, should not be sold without an indi cation to this effect Special risks attach to wearing celluloid in the hair. It is recommended that local autho rities should issue warnings to shop keepers as to the dangerous proper ties of celluloid. The amount of...

QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED Quinine, the price of which has just been advanced, is one of a number of drugs whose values are not wholly gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. The drug is obtained from Cinchona bark, which is no named because it was introduced into medicine in 1638 by Countess Chinchon, the wife of the Viceroy of Peru, who was herself cured of a fever by its aid. In the whole sale drug markets the bark is still call ed Chinchona, but the pharmacopoeial name is Cinchona. Until comparatively recent years the supply of bark was obtained from South America, and- it is in fact still commonly known as Peruvian bark. But about .fifty years ago an Eng tUsh traveller obtained some Cinchona seeds and brought them to England, where they were eventually bought by the Dutch Government. They were planted in the Island of Java. and af ter a long series oa experiments the Dutch Government succeeded in culti vating trees which will yield two or even three times as much quinine as the...

BOWL8. The Stawell "News" refers as fol lows. to the match between Ararat and Stawell, the scores of which were pub-I lished in our last issue:-0 Wednes. day afternoon the Stawell Club played their third match for the above trophy' when they meet the Ararat Club on the local green. Both clubs were strongly represented, and the visitors, bringing one of the strongest rinxs that have ever represented the club off their own green, were confident of turning the tables on their opponents and get ting even by defeating the locals on their own green. The visitors, how ever, reckoned without their hosts, who had instructed Curator Jones to have a fast green, and these instructions were I faithfullv carried out, the green play ing very fast, and to the visecors, used to a heavy green, proved most difficult. The result of the match was an easy win for Stawell by 33 points, although one of the local rinks was badly beaten. By wninning the match the Stawell Club have placed themselves in an exc...

AVIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 February 1914
AVIATION. Interest in the art of flying has bbe? given a great fillip by the feats of Mt II. Hawker and his mechanist,' Mr G. Kauper. Their demonstrations : show how rapill the advance has been in con nection with the manufacture and: im provement of. flying machines. Though the proposal to ly round the world is described by Mr Wilbur Wright as a foolhardy adventuire foredoomeel to failure, there is no room to doubt but that we are so far only on the threshold of aviation, and that before: long, thie conquest of the air will be coanplaete We need only look back a few years to see the progress.
