To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
T'o the Editor. Sir,-I am concerned to notice in IYour open columns that our society is held up as a laughing stock to the public, and it is time that some of the respondents were justified or dispror uncontradicted statements of your cor ed. Unfortunatelv. the present colm mittee does not seem at all concerned that the name of their Society should he badgered and ridiculed, but I feel that out of self-respect I can no lon gor remain a member without a small protest. Surely if the present officers can do no better it is time they re signed (as they should do. if they still wish to be honorably thought of as Scots) and left the door open for bet ter and more able men. Let thenm throw off their garb of conceit and bumptiousness and say, 'Come on you other fellows, and if you can do better good luck to you.'-Yours, etc.. A DISGUSTED SCOT.

LADIES' POLO. STORY OF AN EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
LADIES' POLO. --+ STORY OF AN EXPERIMENT. Once they tried a ladies' polo match at a hill station in India, where Europeans will do anything to dis cover new ways of improving the shining hour. These ladies rode astride. They had borrowed their ponies from their husbands. brothers, and admirers. They were photographcd--it was a happy thought to observe this neces sary formality before instead of after the battle. Then they began. But as they showed no special facility in intro ducing their sticks to the ball, they just continued jostling and walking round each other in the centre of the ground. A pony which must have been getting dizzy by the musical exercise luckily chanced to kick the ball in the direction of a goal, and some of the men sarcastically cried, "Well hit !" Then they held another pow-wow, during which sticks -intermingled like some wonderful "bully-off" in hockey. "Really, Mrs. Robinson." said Mrs. Jones, "are you aware that yourl pony has my stick in his mouth ?"' "Wh...

Well Served. A rather amusing incident occur red during the erection of a factory In Lancashire. A new hand, an Irishman, had been taken on as labourer, and the sig nal for mortar was a sharp whistle. Just below the bricklayers, wh o -ert'r taking up the wa!ls, were the jrciners, who happened to bo tixing the floor-joists. One day a happy thought struck ano of them to play a trick on ,'a(ddy. Presently a whistle was gigon, whereupon the now hand filled the hod with mortar and as :ended. When he got to the top the bricklayer said : "I didn't whistle for any mortar." "I thought ye did," said the hod man. "T didn't.. So go down again, and don't bring any moro until vhistlc.'" A few minutes elapsed, ih1en a sharp whistle was heard again.

DIAMOND CUTTING. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
DIAMOND CUTTINrG. The lapidary's art is very ancient. but the method of cutting diamonds Nyith their own dust was scarcely known -before the thirteenth or four teenth century. This discovery was long - attributed to Louis de Ber quem, of Bruges, . who lived in 1746, and it is dtily :within a: short time that new researches have proved that the art of cutting diamonds was known before -that period. It is known, for instance, that -early in the fifteenth century, princes and lords owned and made presents of diamonds, and that there was In Paris, 1407, a diamond-cutter named Herrmann. who had the reputation of being very skilful ,in his~art.. In the Middle Ages, the jewellers alone practised the cutting of pre cious stones; this privilege they pre served without opposition until the. year 1854. when ,some of their mem bers associated themselves with the masters of an old society of crystal cutters, founded in the time, of 't.
