AN AMAZINQ FEMALE CRIMINAL. The Strange Story of Mary Ann Cotton, the Arsenic Fiend. Prisoner at the bar, have you any thing to say before I pronounce sen tence? The woman in the dock with corpse-like face, and eyes that seemed to start from her head, gave one wild, despairing glance at the juugo and around the awe-stricken court, then, clutching the mil in front of her with a frantic grasp, she gasp ed out, in a hoarse, unearthly voice guiltyn0t g"IIty! 0b§ no' not' Then, in solemn tones, vibrant with emotion, Mr. Justice Archibald pro nounced the death sentence; and as the last words fell from his lips the doomed woman uttered a low cry of horror and collapsed in a swoon. Such was the scone which lingered iong and liauntUigly in the memory Oi all who witnessed it one March tho year 1873, when the cur J tain fell on the last scene of one of i che most terrible dramas in human history, and Mary Ann Cotton was carried away, a limp, unconscious bur den to the fate which she had so wel...

SHOULD COUSINS MARRY? A Scientist Shows the Risks They Run. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

SHOULD COUSINS MARRY? A Scientist Shows the Risks They Run. In an article on the marriage of cousins, printed In the "Eugenics Re view," Professor Edward NottleBhip, ol London University, who died ro-'l cently, adduced statistics of several Isolated localities, in which the inter marriage of near relatives has been almost universal, to show that these communities are unusually healthy, iheir people are long-lived, the fami lies aro large, and there are no signs of weakness. Ills conclusion is that "marriages botween cousins are as safe from the eugenic point of view as any other marriages, provided the parents and stock aro sound. The difficulty, of course, is to decide upon this vital point." When there is weakness in a common ancestor—a weakness that Is or may be hereditary Insanity or tendency to tuberculosis, for instance —the childron of cousins inherit it from both sides. But the same is true of any striking strength or mark o>i talent. However, the objection to the mar ria...

SUNDAY READING. (Conducted by the Rev. E, Eldridge, Boort.) Tho Ronaissanoo In India. Mr C. F. Andrews, of Pembroke Col lego, Cambridge, delivered 11 most in teresting lecture la3t month in Sydney before the University Christian Union on the above subject, and especially in regard to the influence of the " new learning " on the character of thnt cul tured Indian, Sir Rabindranath Tagore. This young knight, who is said to repre sent the flower of the great. Indian Re naissance of 100 years ago, had acquired not only a perfect knowledge of .his own language, but also that of the English tongue, and it is expected that he will introduce a new literary . epoch in his own country. As the new learning of a century ago was not due to Western thought so much as a return to, and an examination of, their own "great Sanskrit classics," so also is the literary structure being raised by Rabindranath based on the classics of his own country. He is said to have reached the highest pinnacle of thou...

How to Keep Young. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915

How to Keep Young'. It goes without saying that in order to keep young one must be still young—young, that is, in heart, in hope, in trust, not merely in years. The years are nothing; we may blow tliem aside as a thistle down, or rather let us sav they resemble snowfiakes, which,' accu mulating on a cold and icy surface, rapidly harden into a frozen mas'! but how quickly these same il.ikes will dusolve and disappear, leaving little trace behind, if that, they fall on, glows with heat! h>0 it is with the young heart. The years have little power over them ; the warmth of their sunny disposition permits no freezing and hardening, thus they carry no heavy burden of age. Provided then we keep the heart vouug and the mind hopeful, and ; an ever-fresh expectant interest in the datails of our everyday exis tence that is to say the spirit of youth within us—it is not difficultJ to retain also the outer garb and trappings of the heydav of life. The bloom of health, the satin skin, the spar...

There is one big gun that throws shells into their trenches in front of where we are, and where they hit they explode and a terrible ! cloud of dust is hurled up and it i fairly shakes our trenches, which | are about 150 yards away.
