MR E. W. ALABONE DEATH OF SPECIALIST [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
MR E. W. ALABONE DEATtHE OF SPECIALIST I am sorry to see the death an nounced of Mr E. W. Alabone, the well known specialist in pulmonary con sumption, whose name has often figured in the pages of "Truth" (says "Truth"). Mr Alabone's story is an in teresting and instructive one. While still a young man he devised a treatment of consumption which had very remarkable success. He had, however, one or two indiscreet friends on the press who puffed his perform ances in a way that attracted the notice of- the guardians of professional "ethics," and he was brought before the General Medical Council and struck off the register. That generally means extinction and ruin, but aMr Alabone fought on, and fought successfully. On the principle that you may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, he availed himself of his freedom to start advertising in earnest; and he built up for himse'f a large practice, which continued to flourish down to the time of his death. - The trial of Mr Alabone by the G...

SEARCH FOR A "GRAVE" [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
SEARCH FOR A " GRAVE " The "confession" of wife-murder made by George Hardy, of Birming ham, who is in custody at Dudley on a charge of stealing a bicycle, has proved to be baseless. (says "The Dally Mail," March 26). All day yesterday police were scour ing the district for the "grave" where the man said he had buried his girl wife. Eventually he told the police that the woman was alive, and this, they found to be true. The wife returned to her mother's house at Birmingham yesterday. Neigh bors were in. the street discussing the supposed tragedy when the "murdered" woman was seen. walkiig down the I street. She said she knew nothing about the! matter until that morning. Her land lord at Wolverhampton -had- said to' her, "Look here: this paper- says your husband has confessed to murerlarg and burying you." "That upset me awfully," she- added, "and I left my- breakfast and decided to come to Btrmlnghanm to See what it is bJ1 about"

MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
MORALS OF THE"' NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller in an article in the January "Hibbert Jour nal" says: THE FAMILY The family is the only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to bind the individual's caprice to travel in regular orbits, and to build up an or derly society out of the gravitation of social units. It is a successful mech anism just because it is so 'much more than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a trainfng ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and 'of the factory, and of the Church, though all- these institutions have sometimes grown into unnatural forms which in jure and repudiate their origin. "I remember that when I was an undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, the great Master of Balliol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on -a great var iety of theorie...
ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OF IRISH HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
IROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OF IRISH HISTORY An interesting provision as to the future of Coney Island-one of the four islands in Lough Neagh-is made in the-will of the late Viscount Charl mont, who left unsettled personal estate of the value of £4976. His remains are to be buried on the island, and he left £36 a year for pay ment of a keeper, who will live on the island and keep the "old tower walls and my last resting place in good order." Neither the island nor the house is to be let, and the public are not to be allowed to visit the island except on Tuesdays and Saturdays. People coming to- the island on yachts from a distance may land at any`.hour and have the use of the visitors' room in the keeper's lodge. Lough Neagh (remarks "The Daily News") figures in history as one of the inland waters where naval battles have been-fought. The present Mar quis of Donegal is, in fact, the Here ditary Lord High Admiral of Lough Neagh. There are still the remains of defences on each. of-the...
ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PLEASE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASE'S PLEASE S.Correspoondence between Colonel See l,' the .S~cretary 'fdr War, and Lord Esher, chairman of the County of Lon don Territorial Force Association, on the supply of horses for the Army was made public by the War Office (says "The Daily Mail"). . Lord Esher maintains that "On a general mobilisation every available horse that could be purchased volun tarily would be required for the Army; None would remain for the use of the Territorials." This Colonel Seely de sciibes as a "complete delusion." Colonel Seely denies that the increase in motor vehicles has led to such a decrease in horses as to jeopardise the success of a mobilisation. Arrange ments have been made for an annual military census of the "horse popula tion." This enables the War Office each year to watch the variations. - "To meet the total requirements of all the military forces on a general mobilisation," Colonel Seely says, "some 140,000 horses of all kinds are required: in 'Great Br...
Cycling and Motoring Notes [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
-0 : W. W:J. Bailey. the English crack, who has been the champion amateur sprinter of the world for many years, has now turned pro festional. No other - amateur siprinter of any nationality has had sunch a run of success in recent years. Bailey will race against the -World's best, including F. Kramer, in Paris, at an early date. It's no wonder that motor bus traffic in London is playing, havoc with the tramway returns. During 1912 the passengers carried by the tramways dropped to the extent of 24,332,160 on. the 1911 returns, whilst the motor omnibus service last year showed an increase of 150,933,911 over 1911 figures. These figures are taken from the annual report of the London traffic board. An English motorist, named L. Barwell, has put up a unique per formance. During the past nine years he has never entered a train, but has motored 139,000 miles dur ing that time. Mr Barwell started motoring in 1903, when he pur chased his first car, and since that year he has covered 154,885 ...
PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
PURE ENilLISI CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. Dr. E. A. Abbott, best known to schoolboys as the author of the famous I Latin grammar "Via Latina,' and as part-author of "English Lessons for English People," has given his adher ence to the Oxford movement for the encouragement of pure English, and (says "The Daily Mail") has discussed the possibilities of the new society which has been formed with Dr. Bridges, the Poet Laureate, at its head. "If all the schoolmasters and mis tresses at elementary and " public schools," said Dr. Abbott, who was a senior classic at Cambridge and a scholar and headmaster of the City of London-School, "applied themselves to correcting certain obvious defects, I am sure a great improvement would re sult. What we particularly want to guard against is affectation which mighf result from the teaching in any pedantic way of the use of particular words, phrases, or -pronunciations. But without pedantry we can try to get rid of many agreed faults. "I have riot been ou...

THE DOCTOR'S SHORTHAND Counsel at Clerkenwell County Court, perusing a note made by a doc tor in examining an injured person: You spell "fracture" wrong, doctor. The Doctor : I did not think it was coming into court. Counsel : But you have spelt it wrongly. The Doctor : That is my own shorthand. "Papa, where's atoms?" "Atoms, my boy: what do you mean?"
