A PLEA FOR CENTLE SPEECH. Mr. Price Collier, in an admirable ■ssay on Gentle Speech, says:— Kvcry sin will express itself in langu :ge.

WOMEN'S PART PLAY THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914

WOMEN'S PART PLAY THE GAME. Dr Mary Scharlieb, the Hnrley street specialist in women's diseases and con sulting gyntecologist to the Royal Free Hospital, discusses in the "Daily Mail" the paper read by Dr Claye Shaw on "Tiie Nervous Factor in Woman's Health" at the Institute of Hygiene. I quite agree with Dr Shaw, Mrs Scharlieb said, that it is a great mis take for a woman to be so devoted (o sports and outside interests that she becomes mannish, but 1 think ho will find very few/married women who neglect their homes for this reason or who keep up their athletics after mar riage. It is generally the young un married woman who is seeking now outlets for her energy.''" Dr Shaw says sport is a bad mar riage market, and that the sporting girl exposes her character _too much to the man. I contend that the man should know the girl's character as thorough ly as he can before marriage. If spirts expose bad qualities, then let them be cured. There is a good deal of good in a young man aa&...

MELBOURNE. THE POSTAL KANGAROO. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914

MELBOURNE. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. THE POSTAL KANGAROO. Mr. Joseph Cook, as Prime J Minister, is being made the sub ject of attack over the dis appearance of the kangaroo from our postal stamps. The " Bulletin" recently published a cartoon cleverly drawn by Norman Lind say, in which Mr Cook was pre sented as judge and the kangaroo as convicted prisoner. It is being explained to the latter that he is guilty of being an Australian kangaroo on an Australian post age stamp. The idea is, of course, to make political capital against the present Government. Since that cartoon appe'ared other journals supporting the Opposition have presented weak versions of the " Bulletin's " criticism. After all, I don't suppose the average citizen cares one dump what is on the postage stamp sold to him. I have asked several business and other people what they thought of the new design, and the answer has been that they had not examined the old design and knew nothing about the new. All they cared about w...

PREVENTIVE DETENTION time to change. I Tho Court of Criminal Appeal— (The Lord Chief Justice and Justices Darl ing, Bray, Lush and Atkin)—was re asked (reports the "Daily Mail" of No vember IS) on behalf of Crown, to malce pronouncement for the guidance of all lesser tribunals as to the meaning of "preventive detention" of criminals, which is prescribed in a recent Act of Parliament, and to lay down specific ally that there is no rule limiting this preventive detention to only five years as the accompaniment of a sentence on the criminal of three years' renal servi tude. The court has recently been quashing orders for preventive detention on the ground that the subjects had not been proved habitual criminals. One more of these appeals came up yesterday. John Crowley, ordered at Somerset Quarter Sessions three years' penal servitude for burglary and ten years' preventive detention afterwards, appealed from that part of his conviction which de clared him an habitual criminal, j\lr Pur...

The president of the shire (Ci\ Nicol) is burdened with the task of carrying on the affairs of the whole of the East Riding. The position of a councillor is generally considered an unenviable one, when attending to even his (air proportionate share of the work of a riding ; therefore, our worthy president cannot be held amenable for the neglect of works in the riding that require urgent attention. The fact is, Or Nieol is the only councillor repre senting this end of the shire, and has borne the task and respousibility for some few nonths, since the departure of Messrs Piteairn and Hawaii. Rate payers are querying as to whether they have resigned, or what is their inten tion in regard to matters- municipal. .Complaints are rife that work is being neglected, and this at a time of year when read works should be progress ins expeditiously.

CURE FOR OBESITY ADVICE BY COUNTESS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914

CUKE FOK OliESITY ADVICE BY COUNTESS. The Countess ot Warwick describes in "Harper's Bazaar" a simple diet plan for women who wish to reduce their weight. She writes:— After having tried every method it is my opinion that the reducing pro cess can just as well be carried out at home, under the normal conditions of everyday. life. All physicians agree in the advice, "Cut out starch,s sugar, and, in a less degree, fats." Tho necessary amount of sleep is permitted, but the earliest hours of rising are greatly to the good, and all forms of exercise in the ordinary way, such as walking, riding, swimming, tennis, and golf, together with sea bathing are encouraged. These help to cure so long as they arc not overdone. The elimination of starch—some 60 per cent, of our food value—is inclined to debilitate, and one must be cautious or a worn, scraggy appearance—most unbecom ing—will ensue, as so often happens to women undergoing a "cure." I will introduce the personal note in giving my advice...

CAXADIAX GHAIX FAI5MI2H IS HE PROSPEROUS? WAYS OP GRAIN SHARKS. i Mr Niels Nielsen, in liis report to ■ the New South Wales Government on | the elevator system in America, says: 1 —"All through the United States .and I Canada wheat is bought in four grades —1, '2, 3, and chicken l'eed; but No. 3 absolutely disappears in the hand ling1 of it through the elevators. By the time it is shipped, or sold in the Eastern States, the elevator owners, and grain sharks, have manipulated it in such a'way as to 'ring in' practi cally the whole of the No. 3 grade wheat into Nos. 2 and 1 in certain pro portions, and this manipulation of the grain results in the enormous prolits that accrue to the elevator owners and grain speculators at the expense of the farmers." It was because of this that it was strongly recommen ded to keep the proposed N.S.W. ter minal elevators in Government hands (says a Sydney paper).
