A LIGHT THAT FAILED [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
A LIGHT THAT FAILED When the Clement Mason Bioscope Company contracted with the Municipal Council for a term of rental of the Town Hall, and billed the town in style, people looked forward to something special But suddenly their handbills were withdrawn from circulation, and on Tuesday night no company turned up. It would now appear as though Cartwrights Wednesday evening show will have the field to them- selves in reference to moving picture displays.
RAILWAY DISCONTENT [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
RAILWAY DISCONTENT Is there any talk of a strike on the Tasmanian railways?'' Mr . J. H. Catts, general secretary of the Amalpamaled Railway and Tram- way Employees' Federation who is spending a few days in Hobart, was asked by a "Daily Post" representative. "There is," he replied, 1 very deepsealed discontent amongst the men at their sweated condition and all sorts ot steps are talked of amongst them, but so far the question of a strike haï not been officially considered. We feel sure that when a proper clasification scheme is placed before the authorities, backed up with unanswerable evidence and supported by a united service, that the just claims of the employees will be sympathetically considered.

Random Readings. THE MAKING OF A HOSTESS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
Random Readings, j THE MAKING OF A HOSTESS. Homo lifo in France is far more an institution, and the "cercle de famille" far moro important, than in English homes, but it is so seldom opened to strangers that that is the reason why so few Knglish people have been able to study the French- woman's lifo in her own homo and her mode of living, says Mrs. Hamer Jackson in tho "Women's Encyclo- paedia." To understand a .French- woman it ig necessary to learn how sho has been brought up. Nurseries in France aro practically unheard of. The little child whilo very young sits at its parents' tablo and lives in constant companionship with its mother .-iud father, acquiring at an early ago caso of manners and self confidence. It is often indulged", and seldom spoilt by contradiction. French amiability is indeed trace- able to this early indulgence, soci ahlcncss, and early training in good manners. Thc little French girl is tho centro of family cares and calculation. From tho moment of her birth...
Memory. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
Memory handed down through thir- ty generations is one of the perplexing farts of science. The beaver flour- ished along French rivers until killed off for its fur, btu is now known only in abdul a dozen of its villages on the Khone near Avignon. For three cen- turies these villages.have had no trees to cut down for dams. Thc animals were compelled to adopt a new mode «if life, and have burrowed in the banks, shaping mud with their tails as usual. Recently some of them ' were taken by a Polish count to forests on his estate1;. Very strangely, they resumed thc habits dropped three cen- turies before they were born, and at once began tutting trees and building dams.
CATCHING THIEVES BY MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
CATCHING THIEVES BY MACHINE. Tho clcptograph, as may bo in- ferred from its name, is an appara- tus for tlie recording of theft, which automatically photographs those who break into office or house, anti accu- rately registers the hour of their visit. The room to be protectetl by the clcptograph contains a system of wires and contacts that are proper- ly distributed over thc windows, tloors, safes, etc., being connect oil As soon as a stranger penetrates the room, a photographic camera, under the action of some contact, involuntarily and unconsciously touched by thc person, will direct it- self automatically towards thc con- tact, that is towards thc thief, and after having opened thc objective shutter, will ignite the magnesium powder intended to supply Ibo flash- light, and again dost?

HOW TRIAL BY JURY ORIGINATED. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
HOW TRIAL BY JURY ORIGINATED. Whence tomes thc system of trinl hy jury? , In thc opinion of Bour- guignon, ;i French jurist, "its origin loses itself in thc nicht of time." Blackstone speaks of 'il as "a trial that hath been used time out of minti." Reeves thinks it was in- troduced into England hy the Normans, who. themselves ob- tained it from Northern Europe. If is certain that the Scan- dinavians' had au established jury system more than 1000 years ago. Tho Normans on their arrival in England found prevailing there the ordeal of hot irons, which en- forced tho carrying of a pound of heated metal hy the accused for a given distance, and thc ordeal of hot water, in which by way of varia- tion a stone had to bo withdrawn from a pitcher of boiling water. No attempt at reform in this direc- tion was made by William the Con- queror. A noted case tried in tho reign of tho Conqueror, with Otho, Bishop of Bayoaux, presiding as judge, has boon erroneously supposed lo ho the first jury cas...

Life In Siberia. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
Lile In Siberia. Thc Siberian villages arc surround- ed by a big stockade, some ten or I fifteen feet in height. This erection is.to prevent the sheep and cattle from wandering into the forests and so fal- ling a prey to the wild animals which swarm therein. In addition to this each village makes common property of an enormous number of dogs ©f thc wolf-hound breed, which are kept for protection from thc packs of wolves which in winter, desperate with hun- ger, descend upon thc villages. Such dogs arc highly prized, and, though they belong to nobody in particular, are well fed and cared for.

Pearls as Beautifiers. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911
Pearls as Beautifiers. An ingenious Frenchman has dis- covered a new aid to beauty. In the course of his travels he was struck by thc admirable skin of the Cingalese giris engaged in pearl sorting. His conclusion was that this effect was pro- duced by thc radio active properties of the pearl dust, hitherto regarded as commercially valueless. Accord- ingly the dust has been placed on the Paris market as a sort of ointment, and is recommended as calculated to restore the bloom of youth to fading beauties.
