MANCHESTER AND AUSTRALIA BETTER COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

MANCHESTER AAND AUSTRALIA BETTER COMMUNICATION. Coat activity is being displayed Ia the interest of London, Hull, Bristol, and Stettin (Germany) with a view to these ports getting a bigger share of the Australian trade (writes a .11l hourne correspondent, "Mancunia," to "The Manchester Guardian.") I am a Manchester man, established here in business, represent a Manchester house, and, in common with other Manchest.er men also established in this country, regret that so little is being done to, follow the lead of tile ports mentionedt above. JManchester has magnificent docks, unrivalled facilities for handling cargo, is right in the biggest industrial Impulation of the world, and, with all these superior advalitages the best you can do in the way of giving us dirc't comnmunication between Manchester and Australia is to send only one boat per month.

STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFERERS UNABLE TO GET RELIEF [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

STUDENTS ON STRIKE SUFFEIRE: S UNABLE TO GET RELIEF Some thousands of patients with toothache, who as usual went for re lief to the dental hospitals attached to the greater German universities this morning (stated the Berlin corres. pondent of "The Daily News" Decem bet 13) had to be turned away, for the dental students throughout Ger many went on strike, and thee only people left in attendance were the lecturers and their chief assistants, who were quite unable to handle the large number of patients. The students' strike has been caused by the refusal of the university author ities to grant the title of doctor of dentistry. The only wa a student at the Dental Iigh School can obtain a degree is by subsequently taking a philosophy course, which means an extra two years after he has Passed the State examination in dentistry. This examination, which does not confer the degree itself, involves ten terms of study, as against the six which suf fice to give a degree In other subjects. Anot...

"The recent short-lived contest takes ny memory back to what was almost my baptisnml fire as a referee in the prize ring, and at that date the short est light on record..

KISSES FOR CARPENTIER [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

KISSES FOR CARPENTIER The younger generation of France, the new race which is turning France into one of the keenest sporting coun tries in the world (says the Psris cor respondent of "The Daily Mail," De eember 12), thronged the Gare du Nord to the number of many thou sands to-night to welcome home young Carpentier from his great triumph in London. Hundreds of men had tears of emo tion running down their faces, and when at last they got to their hero everyone who could kissed his cheek or hand. He was often lost to sight for long seconds under this human flood of friends and admirers, while those who could not reach him shrieked "Vive Carpentier!" until their voices failed. The police were rushed andl flung aside, and Carpentier, smiling. but pale with emotion, was carried shoul der high. Eventually the crowd thinned out and Carpentier was able to drive away. The train in which Carpentier trav elled was half an hour late, having been delayed by the demonstrations of welcome to him ...

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

TIHE STREET CLEANER A paper having said that "To recog nise the supremacy of the street cleaner would be to usher in the reign of chaos," "The Daily Herald" takes it to task and- says:-"Now, that just I rings us very close to the root of th| matter. 'Supremacy' is indeedl th, wrong word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual ecoiomy he is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. We may thus re-state the proposition: 'To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity.'

DOM MANUEL'S BRIDE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

i DOM MANUEL'S BRIDE It was perhaps the hearty generos ity of the English sporting instinct,. as much as anything else, which sent a suburban crowd to welcome the young ex-ruler of Portugal. Dom Manuel. and.his wife, Dona Augustine de Bra I ganza, to Twickenham on Saturday (says. "The Daily News," December 15);: From the throne of an ancient and splendid -Iatin State to Fulwell Park! That thought touched the sympathetic hearts of-. many British unpolitical households. "Such a youing feller, too," said a dame with a market basket, gazing at 'the Royal motor car outside the deco rated Town H'all at Twickenham. "It only shows' what .might happen to any of us." For others there was. the romance of it. No wonder such a host of young ladies were there when the municipal address of welcome was given. It was. as one soulful girl put it, "like a novel." It was indeed. Dom Manuel and his bride, it must be said, showed no sign that the dignity of most of the Royal blood of Europe, which they r...

When Tommy arrived hore from school the other morning it was evident that he had had something hard to face besides his lessons. His cheek was swollen almost to the size of a small pumpkin, and his. rigst eye looked as If a bit of raw beef might do It good. "Good gracious, child, whatever have you been doing?" cried hie mother "Is It tooth ache?" "i've had toothache, mother-and I've had a fight, too; but I did it to save "you money," said Tommy. "You know, It would have cost you half-a-crown to have had that tooth of mine drawn, so I've had it knocked out by Jimmy Carter for nothing!"

BLACK MAGIC WIZARDS PRACTISE TO-DAY [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

BLACK BMAQIC \VIZARDS PRACTISE TO-DAY Black Magis is by no means so rare a thing nowadays as the sceptical and unsupertitious would think. "There are people in London to-day who practise witchcraft," declared Monsignor Benson, the well-known Catholic author. to a surprised "'Daily News" representative on December 16. "Oddly enough," he went on, "the two persons whom I have in my mind are not women, but a middle-aged man and another male somewhat youriger, so I suppose one should call them wizards, rather than witches." "IN LEAGUE WITH EVIL SPIRITS" "Mediaeval rites." was Monsignor Benson's brief description of the per Iformances of these persons-~"rites which involve fasting and obscenity. They claim that they are in league with evil spirits, 'exactly as the old witches did. They are well educated; whether they are made or not, or whether they are liars or not, are points on which I. would not care to commit myself. But I know they attempt this witchcraft." Explaining what may be ca...

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

ANATOLE. FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor 1\f. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") M. France has been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is i his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie.. For he is not, nor would he be, any thing so solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise of essays, but he e has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them, or around a them; for he has spent a lifetime in 0 their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing e to express or realise anyone or any thing in art-save in relation to him- r self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITERARY GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, MI. France is a ...

REMARKABLE SCHOOL FARMER AT THE HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

REMARKABLE SCHOOL FARMER AT THE HEAD. A Sunday school in which all tradi tions and old-time theories are upset and swept away is a distinctive fea ture of Hutchinson, Kansas (says "The Christian Science Monitor.") When the questions of public service, betterment and uplift are considered, or when movements for the general bIenefit of the city are proposed, the First Methodist Church Sunday School generally is the first organisation thought of to take hold and push. That is because about all of the pro minent business and professional men of the city are members of this un usual as well as largest Sunday school in Kansas. Sheridan Ploughe, the superinten dent of this Sunday school, with a membership of 1400, is a farmer. He is a stout, jolly fellow, who says he wants to have all the fun there is go ing, and to get all the good possible out of living. Running this big Sun day school, with its SO0 teachers and managing his fine fruit farm and gar den patch two miles away, he says fills...

fiPSIES' STRIKE COPPERSMITHS DISSATISFIED. The latest strike is that of perform ing gipsies. For the past month twelve of the gipsy coppersmiths who attracted at tention when they arrived in London recently from Eastern Europe and set tled for a time in Ilford, have been ap pearing in a performance at the Caba ret Theatre Club at Heddon street, and they are announced to take part in a gipsy play there on the 29th (states "The Daily News' of' December 23). Jura Filipoff, the picturesque chief, when interviewed on the subject, said that his tribe are striking for increased wages. He explained in French that his twelve people only received 30/ a night, and as they have to return home at five o'clock in the morning by taxi cab their net gain works out at only about 2/ each. "We strike,' he added in English, for an eating wage. We cannot eat on 2/ a day three nights a week." Asked why he did not try the music halls, or some of the other night clubs, the chief said that his party had made...

"It was not written with any ti idea of publication, but so finely and d sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is blessed with one of the noblest peasantries in the world, point t the evils which "Tire Vineyard" is h out to fight, and the good which it exists to defend and encourage, that I si venture, in good conscience, to print it without her permission." d "It is like a dream to find oneself again in this romantic land, and in one day we have already seen so much that it seems long since we left home!

GLOWING APPRECIATION "NIGHTINGALE IN THE GLOAMING." [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

OLOWINGi APPRECIATION "NIGHTINGALE IN THE) GLOAM ING." The provincial journalist does at times pile it on. Regarding a lady who recently sang at a village entertain ment an appreciative scribe writes as follows in the latest issue of a Border weekly: When Miss B-- has come Into- the kingdom of the few elect players and London and the Continent claim her, it will delight us to remember that one unforgetful evening we heard melodies such as the nightingale pours forth in the gloaming when the perfume of the rose Intoxicates her heart with the sweet forebodings of spring - tones that kissed mutually and then fled poutingily from one another, and at last embraced and became one, and died away in the ecstasy of union. Again, there were heard sounds of fallen an gels, who, banished from the realm of bliss, sunk with shame-red counten ance to the regions of the lower world.

DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE One of the loveliest stretches of English scenery within range of Lon don is being robbed of both its beauty and use with such speed and certainty that local feeling is coming to a pitch of high irritation and private pro tests are being made (writes the spe- . clal: correspondent of "The' Daily Mail"). The question is much more. than local. By the deliberate choice of a new landlord (1) Some land which produced food, both corn and milk, is put out of cul tivation, is from a ntlional point of view made barren. (2) A famous beuuty spot Is de prived of its native charm and with drawn from the use of the neighbors and a wider public who delighted to walk there.

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

REARINM i CHILDREN. MEAL TIME TERIROIS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately rrefuses to "thrive" " (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M.B., in "The Daily News" of December 9). From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or reasons can be assigned. Unfortunately the truth more or less ge'nerally remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, handicapped by the fact of not thriv ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the child who does not thrive is generally misman aged. The normal, natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree-that is, if we give him a t chance. But our methods of cloth Ing, feeding, and "managing" our off spring detract from the "health and joy of life of far too many of them in this generation at least.

INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. Nobody likes influenza. It has not a friend in the world, and eivery country tries to make out that the wretched thing is a native of some other country. In Russia it is called Siberian fever, and in Siberia Chinese fever. In France it has been called Spanish catarrh, and Spain throws it back as Russian fever. Dr. Arthur F. Hopkirk gives some interesting lists of the names it has been.called in a book on "Influenza." The term influenza came to he gener ally applied in England to the disease wh'ch was successively known as .'the new acquayntance," "the gentle cor rection,"- "the new delight," and "the knock-me-down fever" by a. mistake. Eighteenth century Italian writers, says Dr. Hopkirk, spoke of "una in fluenza di freddo" (influence of cold), s and English physicians, mistaking the s word influenza for the name of the d disease itself, used it. The game term is also used in Ger many, where a. host of dialect names still prevail, such as lightning catarr...
