Trams on Holy Ground. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 July 1914

Trams on Holy Ground. ? ± The statement-that Jerusalem nncl its vicinity are to bo. modernised by the laying dottfn of an eleetric lighting plant and the construction of a water supply, from. WndyForah, and a tramway, between, the city and Bethlehem, causes' little dis quiet in quarters whpre any vandalism in Jerusalem would be resented most keenly. " Ileal ly, I think tho tramway to Bethlehem will bo quite a' good thing," says a prominent member of the Palestine Exploration Fund Committee. "It will be well outside the city walls, and there is nothing of interest that needs to bo' jealously preserved on tho four or five miles of country road between Jerusalem and Beth lehem. For tho electric light pro ject, too, there is much to be said, and tho water supply is certainly ur gently needed." Up to tho' pre sent, Jerusalem, so far as tho city within tho old walls is concerned, .has suffered singularly little from its contact with twentieth-century civilisation.

Indian Heraldics. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 July 1914

Indian Heraldics. Alert Bay, an old Indian village on Vancouver Island, Alaska, pos sesses the most completo collection of totem poles to bo found any where on the Pacific const. They represent tho family heral dics of tho Siwash or Const In dians, and every house has its own totem pole, consisting of figures of birds and animals and other monstrosities rudely carved in wood I and quaintly coloured. Tho top figure represents tho crest of tho owner of tho house,, the one beneath it that ' of his wife, and tho re maining ones those of his wife's relatives. As a rule," thero aro only | three or four figures carved on a | totem, and only tho totems of the | greatest chiefs havo six figures car ved on them. This custom seems to havo origi nated in the transmigratory idea of the souls of men passing into tho forms of birds and animals, and is | interesting as showing that tho In I dians had some faint idea of ' a I supernatural power.
