NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914
NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING KICSUI/IS CLAIMED 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 berculosis, and so successful has it proved that it has now 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 j been recognised that the excessive mul ! tipticatlon 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 MotchnikoH! sour milk treatmeut, which purported to purify t...
PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914
PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY I UNITED STATES LEADS. | Tho 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 jOver 50 per cent, of tho world's productions have their origin there. During the first nine months of last year Ihd country exported -'9,000,009 feet of film, more than three-quarters of which came to Great Britain. Tho kinemato graph industry in America must, how ever, bo somewhat hampered by the extraordinary censorship conditions prevailing, which are in the hands of no fewer than 4forty-eight separate and distinct jurisdictions. Though America is responsible for most of tho film-producing, Great Bri tain is easily first in the matter of dis tribution, quite 80 per cent, of tho world's pictures being "released" here. This means employment for mauy thousands of Britons in olllces, theatres mid show-rooms, and is a striking ex ample of the advantage of frcetrade. i On Wednesday evening n...

Preposterous. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914
Preposterous! The christening party consisted ot the proud father, the glfl— Uio grandfather, and the rest of the folks. The grandfather stood nenrest tho priest during tho ceremony. "What's tho cl lid's name?" asked tho priest ot tho grandfather, at tho appropriate moment. "I dmmo," tho grandfather replied. And ho turned to tho faljhor and whis pered hoarsely, "What's Its namo?" "Hazel," replied tho father. "What?" asked tho grandfather. "Hazel," replied tho father. The grandfather threw up his hands deprecatingly. "What d'ye think av that?" he ask ed the priest.

Not so the Archdeacon; he had de cided ta remain. Closeted 'with Hugh in the /private cabin he forgot even to smoke, so gr^at ■ was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me,, my dear fellow, that you propose to take her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "Lam trusting to my judgment," li'i said; "if we did that always, life would Ibe rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do Is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that 1 have met one of the hest of women, and that s* e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this call in at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall aslc my sister to take up her case. After that it will be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though they were oil upo...

Tlio friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and dlscusse.1 it in awesome tones a'bove tile very> cabin whore Leila watched Desdy In his heavy sleep. Tills was a rare blow to thorn, for fhey perceived Immediately that It meant the end of their holiday. Par from being misogynists, In spite of t iio philosopher, they had throughout Hie whole of the cruise Ig nored woman as an Issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hush Donald himself to lie a man who would never marry. His aversion to the sex had become a Sy-word among them, and yet here was the very truth. "A girl aboard the Chrlstnlbel!" But for the light In i lie cabin, which was unoccupied yes terday, they never would have be lieved It. [Ierr Joseph, the steward, broke lhe news to them, and ...

Leila watched.; the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full oC questioning. The long day on board the Chris* tabel had brought with it a moas uro of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. : She had iied from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been" to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be* iieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could- show her. Hero to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she. had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a montli must pass be* for.o the trustees would send her the miserable...

CHAPTER VI. At Abcrfcldy Castle, I. iney put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what lie intended to do,- und she hart lienrd him without protcBt. A rough passage with almost a gale from the1 north oast kept them to the snloon and to the Arcluleacou's humors. The child alone revelled In the uncertainties o£ the day. Ho had Ilerr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes wero on, and tlmt fat worthy wa's a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Allsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and his knowledge of domestic juriapiudoncc intruded hap pily upon this'curious situation. Of Leila he formed ni truly clerical opin ion. I'll ere would bo two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a. little -wild. It was quite possible that: this ibeauUfttl siren tliey had trapped at 'Newcastle was in same measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty...

TOLSTOI DIARIES The long-drawn-out dispute over the Tolstoy manuscripts hus entered upon a new phu.se, according to tho Russian journal "fteteh." Tho main point of contention la that the Countess B. A. Tolstoy refuses to hand over to her daughter, Alexandra Tolstoy, tho tnami scriptn which arc being preserved in tho historical museum at Moscow.

She has pro posed to lior mothor that tho diaries - be entrusted to a third party having ' the confidence of both sides, with the ■ object of photographing the diaries and ' of supplying each aide with a copy.
FAMOUS INSTITUTION [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 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 of 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 tho hospital had tin 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 roce...
JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914
JAPAN'S VOLCANOES I A TROUBLED* LAND. (By E. Bi'ucg Mltford, P.R.G.S., In "The Dally Telegraph.") With characteristic suddenness tho islands of Japan have added one more to tho already Jong list of tlielr vol canic disasters. Tho unexpected and destructive outburst. of tho Sakunis hlina volcano will servo to remind ub that the land which the passing-tourist is wont to apostrophise us that of the lotus—"where it is,always afternoon"— is one of tho most troubled on the fuco 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 Toklo geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the Ho to tho recorders of their history. Sukurashlma, though not "dead," was generally. thought to be "dying." Some ten years ago the 'present writer was taken to task by a local pundit Cor describing this volcano, in a little work of reference, as .still active. Two years before the great erupti...
FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. fflie recent announcement in a con temporary that the Ulster -men are trying to institute a demonstration, when every onan, 'woman and child will wear a flower as a token of their i aversion to Home Rule, reminds one ; how often flowers have "been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist and Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose in the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a white, this flower has been a popular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are symbolical of love and ! white of purity, our national eitfblem ! Is the rose; the Legitimist Party of j France formed the League of the Rose In imitation of our Primrose League, while owing to Gladstone's fondness for white roses many Liberals once wished to make them an emblem for their party, but the idea «was not adopt ed. The primrose, it is said, was" Bea consfleld's favorite 'flower, and has (been chosen by his followers, who formed the Primrose League, as an emblem, while in F...
SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
SPORT AND RELIGION. "I do not bet," he said, "firstly, be cause If I did it would offend some members oC my congregation; second ly, because I do "not think that it is desirable; and, thirdly, 'because I think yiat it would be wrong for me, with my meagre stipend, to bet. I simply cannot afford it. I appeal to all 'sports' not to allow their sport to drive them away from religion. If they can race and bet with a clean canscicnce, I do not think that God will >be offended. There is nothing wrong with clean sport any more than with stock exchange speculations, and yet many people get up and denounce the evils of gambling and never say a word about gambling on the Stock Exchange. I am glad to be able to say that horse-racing is improving, and 1 believe that it "will continue to improve. I have much in common with sporting men, and I am always pleased to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. It will be a sorry day for God and for the church when the feeling that re l...

He would seize a piece of rock in two hands, stand erect, and whirl around on his liceln, till momentum was obtained, and then lor. wo. This missile would Ily like a bulkl, and woo betide anyono who stood in its way.

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914
CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. Paper is at present used for all pos sible purposes In the industries and in all possible forms. It has even been possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar able with stone, so that it can be used as building material, The latest use for paper, however, is perhaps the most peculiar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufactur ing circular saws from paper. These paper saws are used for the manufac turing ot fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws made from drawing paper were shown in an English exposition. The saws were driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabinet makers can use them without further planing.
