WEDDING BELLS CLERGYMEN'S EXPERIENCES "BRIDES WE HAVE MARRIED" [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
CLERGYMEN'S. EXPERIENCES " BRIDES WE HAVE MARRIED" In the course of his career a clergy man meets many brides—brides young and gladsome in fine raiment and filmy lace, matter of fact spinsters in tailor ed suits, and fascinating little widows, who do not flaunt any orthodox bridal finery on their reappearance at the altar. As one man put it, the majority are, to him, like ships that pass in the night. There are some, however, who leave a distinct impression, not because the clergyman is susceptible to their charm, but rather on account of some incident ; that has robbed the marriage service j of its characteristic solemnity. j For instance, Father is not likely | to forget the bride who figured in the I following story. j How lie Responded j ^ "I was somewhat amused," said (Father "when a deaf old man came with a sprightly young woman to be married. When the usual question ' was asked, 'Wilt thou have this woman,' • he grunted. The bride, rising to the j occasion, shouted, 'Take the...

Training the Modern Girl [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Training the Modern Girl Cable advices state that Dr Caroline Desel, addressing" a National congress on Race Betterment at Battle Creek, Michigan, bitterly condemned the man ner in which modern girls are educated. Girls were turned out of colleges, she declared, who were unfit to achieve a livelihood or motherhood. Such girls were nervous wrecks. Their heads were filled with fancy informa tion which sounded well at club meet ings, but which was utterly useless when ordering steak. "Graduates of these colleges," Dr Desel continued, "possess a penchant for fashions which are the nearest ap proach to nudity allowed by the law. Bachelors often remain bachelors be cause women are spendthrifts. These colleges are completely failing to train girls in life's problems." Dr Desel concluded by saying that HAREM VEILS Veil designers have gone to the ! ladies of the harem for new ideas this season. . A few weeks ago veils of heavy mesh divided with filmy net at the line just above the bridge of ...
THROUGH RIVERINA. WILD LIFE OBSERVED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
THROUGH riXVErtlNA WILD LIFE OBSERVED in© itiverina, New South Wales, is an attractive area for lovers of nature, and many naturalists visit it in the spring and summer- months. Out on the plains, where one may travel for miles without seeing1 a human being-, there are thousands of birds. Ibises patrol the great pad docks, feeding on grasshoppers; hence the good words spoken of these birds by pastoralists. Ibises nest in great rookeries, among lignum bushes in swamps. Native companions may often be seen on the plains; and out of the grass, as one travels, spring song larks, quail, and other small birds. Chats nest among the star thistles or in box thorn hedges around homesteads. Beautiful little birds, th© chats are general favorites. Wood swallows are numerous in the Riverina; their nests are found in due season in all manner of places. These birds are insect-eaters, and should be strictly protected. Along the creeks and rivers thou sands' of parrots and cockatoos con gregate, nest...
Australia GOVERNOR OF VICTORIA [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
GOVERNOR OF VICTORIA Mr P. M'Bride, Agent-General, on j behalf of the Victorian Government, entertained Sir Arthur L. Stanley, the Governor-designate of the State, and Lady Stanley at luncheon at the Auto mobile Club. Mr M'Bride, in proposing Sir Arthur Stanley's health, extended to him the heartiest of welcomes to Victoria, He expressed the hope that he would find the Governorship a stepping-stone to higher positions. Sir Arthur Stanley, in replying, said that he was reminded, of the general in Egypt who told his soldiers when in the neighborhood of the Pyramids that the history of centuries looked down upon them. This made him feel doubly con scious of the responsibility he had un dertaken. He would be glad to sail to what would be his home — his loved home—for the next five years, where he would represent Great Britain in the j greatest Sta-te of the greatest Common wealth in the world. Mi Harcourt, in proposing Mr ; M'Bride's nealth, said that Sir Arthur; ! Stanley had undertake...
SEVERE WEATHER IN EUROPE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
SEVERE WEATHER IN EUROPE! Dozens of villages in Mechlenburg and Wurtemberg, Germany, "have been inundated, and soldiers and sailors were called out to rescue the. inhabi tants. In many cases the people had to take refuge on roofs, where some of them remained for 30 hours, while others in boats lost their way owing to the disappearance of landmarks. The soldiers had to return after evading up to their chests in the icy-cold water for many hours. Hundreds of people abandoned their houses, which were washed away. These people perched on dykes all night, and suffered se verely from cold and hunger. Floods in Switzerland have de stroyed the railway lines and damaged the roads, and trains have been blocked by avalanches. -In consequence of a snowstorm in the north-west of Russia, the railways and roadways are completely covered, and many peasants have been buried in the snow.

CABLE BUDGET Imperial Affairs DOMINIONS ROYAL COMMISSION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Imperial Affairs DOMINIONS ROYAL COMMISSION Evidence taken by the Domnuwio Royal Commission in New Zealand was published in London. Witnesses examined unanimously em phasised the necessity for better orgar nisation in England. They complained that New Zealand was less known than any other country, and suggested that steamer tickets should be sold to agriculturists on time-payment, at the rate of half-a-crown a week. Similar methods had been successfully em ployed in the United States previously. Whilst farmers were prepared to take young town boys, failing a sufficiency; of country youths, there were bitter 'Complaints at the Hotel Workers' Union. "Wealthy people were engaging domestics by wireless before their ar rival. The shortage of domestic help was seriously affecting the health and well-being of New Zealand mothers. Mr E. Tregear, formerly secretary of the New Zealand Labor Depart ment, deprecated the impression that New Zealand was merely an agricul tural country, saying tha...
Foreign Affairs WAR IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Foreign Affairs WAR I'N MEXICO. "The Times" correspondent at luexiou City, in describing the system of war fare in Mexico, says the Mexican idea of making- a soldier is to cram him into a uniform, give him a rifle, and let him fight as best he can. Most of them are Indians from the fields, and of a very low intellectual scale. Recruits are secured by pressing, while many crimi nals are transferred from prison into the army. Officers show an incredible lack of skill in battle. In one instance, the Federals, using machine guns, forced the rebels to retire. The nature of the country made it easy to cut off their retreat, but the colonel in command looked at his watch, said it was time for dinner, and told a bugler to sound ; the cease fire, and the rebels leisurely retired. Hordes of women laden with lipts, pans, and blankets, and some times babies, form the commissariat without which the army could not move. A train full -of soldiers left Tampico to reconnoitre, but when it sighted a ...
Kaiser Growing Sto[?]t [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Kaiser Growing Stoat The Kaiser lias always been known' as a good all-round man. That is to1 say he is first and foremost a king and emperor, general and admiral, a great hunter, a good shot, and a fair swordsman. He can compose an opera1 and conduct the music thereof, preaefct' a sermon, make boots, and grow vege tables. Report also ascribes to him tfra( ability to sing a good song, drink a fair* amount of beer, sew on buttons, an^ cook a meal. In his spare moments h© finds time to design patterns for new uniforms, to supervise a few factories and run a restaurant. On the whole, then, he is fairly busy, and—one would expect—should keep in pretty fair con dition. Yet the. horrible truth is that he is growing- fat. .. On January 27 ha. will be 55, and should be still an alert* active, brisk man. But the adipose de posit is beating him. Fat is a highly] objectionable article to carry about. It means premature age. A clever jockey who can ride Sst. can earn % princely income: as soon a...

Cost of Living Statistics [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Cost of Living Statistics All people are supposed to take a measure of interest in the locality where they live, and should be "willing to help so far as they can in any movement that has social significance. In spite of a good deal of talk about Australian national spirit, there seems to be a lack of this feeling abroad. Mr G. H. Knibbs, the Commonwealth Statistician, a little while ago issued forms to a number of householders, with a request that a record might be made of certain items of expenditure. The intention was to draw up a return which would have some bearing upon on© of the most interesting social phenomena of the moment—the cost of living. The response has been dis couraging, and there seems to be no good reason for it. The request was a reasonable one ; in the nature of things the information is easy to sup ply ; and the record would be of great value. The Australian housewife is energetic enough, she has, as a rule, a rather better education than her sis ters in Great...

Great Britain's "Decline" [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Great Britain's 'Decline" Great Britain is still persistently dying, according to the pessimists, and, with characteristic phlegm, is taking a long time about it. She has been dying and generally "going to the dogs" for centuries, arid keeps on surprising herself by continually show ing better trade returns each year. It has been proved that she is old fashioned, and is falling out of the running and being supplanted by Ger many and the United States, and that she can take lessons from her owii young Oversea Dominions. She breeds generation after generation of Cassah dras, who hold up every temporary backward fluctuation as proof of their contention, and every forward one as a disaster in disguise. She is the only European country who has in vented for herself a humorous type of character as an "-'emblem, which she calls "John Bull." She seems generally to have reversed the pro verbial petition, and has prayeci suc cessfully to have a bad conceit of herself. Mr. W. D. Howells, the A...

South African Troubles [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
South African Troubles In South Africa the condition of affairs is one that must rivet the at tention of all who pay any attention to the work of Government or legisla tion. What is happening1 there is only a type of what may happen anywhere under given conditions. It was serious enough when it was a question of the white or black race being in the as cendancy; now, owing to that dispo sition which has made strikes so widespread, there is a three-cornered duel going on, and the whites are divided among themselves. To go on strike except as a last resort is always a regrettable thing; but to strike in the face of a dangerous and compli cated race situation, where the ex cesses of the Indian Mutiny itself could be repeated, is nothing less than criminal. There seems to be some kind of infection in the air, and men heedlessly do and say that which no persuasion would have induced a few years ago. For instance, one of the strike leaders, Mr George Mason, a member of the executive of the...
