Life Among Lunatics. THE EFECT ON KEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
Life Among Lunatics. ------------- THE EFECT ON KEEPERS. The popular misconception as to the treatment, environment, and daily life of the inmates of insti tutions for the criminal insane is very great, and Dr. Edward IH. Williams, who has great experience in the matter, has set out to clear it up. An interesting point which Dr Williams covers is that of the effect of the peculiar life upon officials and keepers connected with such institutions. - Surrounded by an at mosphere of delusions and hallucina tions, D)r. Williams insists that these men really, become .more level. headed, their normality is accen-. tuated, and, by reason of the con stant thrusting upon their 'atten ti6n of the evil results of lack of self-restraint, they learni to curb certain tendencies of their .own..: If this is true-and the doctor has had sufficient experience to.' know -it is a remarkable. thing. The tirst sensation of the novice in visiting . an institution is to feel that "if he were to remain there ...
Countess Russell Warns 'Black Magic' Dabblers. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
Countess Russell Warns 'Black Magic' Dabblers. (By COUNTESS RUSSELL.) I have long been aware of the con sequences that may affect the thoughtless and carieless sitter at seances, who, longing for a new experience, recklessly joins a number of people bent on receiving some messages from the other side. I do not profess to explain the phenomena that occurs, neither do I affirm that the dead manifest them selves; but I know that sornepower? is developed at such 'a meeting, and demonstrates itself often in a mari vellous way. It is impossible in a short article to give examples of what -occurs, and I would desire rather than to emphasise the danger of meddling in occult matters until more know ledge is gained as to rules and precautions by, whioh the people taking part in, -a seance may be protected. The very fact that sitters are asked to be quite passive, requested not to exert their will power, but just quietly wait and see what happens, ought to he sulicient warn ing in itself of gr...

After Waiting 47 Years. Damages of £500 for breach of promise are claimed by Miss Emma 1Mahaney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. John Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a Civil War veteran, in a suit she has brought at Paterson, New Jer sey. M-iss Mahaney says that the last she saw of her fiance was in 1i6?3 as he was leaving for the Civil War. She never married, believing that some day the sweetheart of her youthful days would return to 'claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last no-eting with him,. she was oxerjciedl to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf, , ho informed her that he had now retired from busi ness withT a ("trt one. A correspond ence ensued in which the spinster alleges the vetran wooed her with all the ardour which characterised him before the wvar. and tinally he proposed marriage. She made all the preparations for the cere rmVny at great expense. When every thino was readyv Mr. Wolf wrote sayinir that the marriage could never take place. Miss Mahaney bases her cla...
Strange Honeymoons. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
Strange Honeymoons. Surely one of the strangest was that of an American couple who, in June ci last year, set out from New York Harbour on a honey moon trip to the Bermuda Islands in a tiny "cockleshell" boat- sonme 12ft. long by 3ft. broad. No less thrilling a honeymoon ex perience was that of a Mr. and Mrs. Edbar,. who were married in Peking - in the Legation chapel, on the day preceding that on which the Boxer riots broke out, and who, perforce, had to spend the first few weeks of their married life prison ers in-the invested- city, witnessing many of the horrors of the rebellion, and going in daily fear of assassi nation. Another couple on the Continent, immediately after the miarriage knot was tied, started off by balloon for England. Leaving Paris at four o'clock in the afternoon, they man aged to land safely on this side of the Channel the following, morning, after a somewhat exciting time among the clouds. Then an ad venturous pair of Swiss lovers, both keen mountaineers, ch...
Cranks Who Hide Money. BANK-NOTES CONCEALED IN BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
Cranks Who Hide Money. ---4 BANK-XOTES CONCE..LED IN BOOKS, Among the eccentricities of the rich. the passion for always possess ing enormous sums oi ready cash is surely one of the most extraordi nary. A former Lord D:,'sart one day asked a comtar:nie -nur'se to go to town and get a cheque cashed for hun at the Bank of England. \\hen she was ready to start the peer sat down and wrote out a che.lue for 12 I:ii,t 00, and told her to be sure and see that she got one note for the whole amount. The che;hue was duly presetnted, and the Bank, having satisfied themosel es as to the nurse's authority for making such a re,i've-t, suggested that a clerk shouldi naccmpany her and hand t he £1i0,,iUO note in per son to his lo:dship. After having done ,o the clerk tol the poer that only three such notes were in existence. "One," lie said, "'we have at the Pank. another 1 have just handed to your lordship, and the third, which soei Tlire ago disap Seared from circulation, we hale neter been able ...
Archduke's Impressions of Australia. FRANZ FERDINAND OF AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
Archduke's Impressions of Australia. FRANZ FERDINAND OF AUS TRIA. In a recent number of the "Fort nightly Rleviewe" Miss Edith Sellers gives us a very interesting account of the archduke. Sone eighteen years ago Franz Ferdinand made a tour of the world, eager to learn, eager to see for himself the different parts of the globe, to watch the wvorl.ing of foreign nations and foreign culture. Austria is for him the most beau tiful wT all lands, the finest and the noblest. And next to Austria-Aus tralia ! The fact that he was trent ed "scandalously" at Thursday Is land over a glass of beer on Sun day did not prevent himn from liking Australia, We read :-'iln Thiirsay Island the fact was fi-st brou ht home to himt that, In perial ligh ess though he be, he is no match for a Scotch woman in wwholt conc"rns th le keep ing of the Sa;bbat;h. While enjoy ing the view fromn the balcony of an inn there, one hot Sunday even ing, he ordered a glass of beer, whereupon the landlady informed him stern...

Bible Facts Varified. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 8 May 1914
Bible Facts Verified. Everybody has heard of the Cali- fornian big trees. Their testimony is now being adduced to verify the stories of the long, long ago, as told in the Old Testament. The rings of these forest Titans have been read as an open book, and lo ! they hark back to the days of the Prophet Elijah and the sore famine that afflicted poor Palestine some 870 years before the coming of Christ. It is a far cry from the acrid wastes of Asia Minor to the mant- ling forests of the California moun- tains. But no uncertain tale do the big trees tell of bygone days now that their story has been read by Prof. Ellsworth Huntington, a very eminent authority on the sub- ject. It is shown that the growth rings in the mighty masts of pine indicate that in general the same climatic changes took place in Cali- fornia as in Asia Minor as shown by its almost prehistoric trees. Rings and curves indicating these changes disclose a remarkable re- semblance between the two regions. &nbsp; ...
Football. BRUNSWICK V. WILLIAMSTOWN. VICTORY FOR BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 15 May 1914
Football. BRUNSWICK V. WILLIAMSTOWN. VICTORY FOR BRUNSWICK. The above match took place on the Brunswick ground on Satutday, when some 5000 spectators assembled. Wil liamstown sustained their first defeat of the season. Their downfall, how ever, was due. more to the bad luck they experienced throughout the game -no fewer than four men, Alley, Reit. man, Gibbs and Mitchell, being crip pled through injuries to the ankle than to any inferiority in play. The game up to half time, when Williams town had its complete team, was re markably even, both sides giving exhli bitions of first class, clean and clever football. There were no changes in the Brunswick team. For Williams town Hoey and Anderson took the places of May and Cameron. Williamstown attacked on the bounce, but were beaten off by Gilles pie, and Chase forwarded. Going up in a crushlfHarrison took a fine mark, and played across to Alley. Carrie re turned, but Anderson, in goal, put in a. fine piece of defensive work, and re liev...
