LONDON TRAFFIC MAGNITUDE OF PROBLEM The sixth annual report of the Lon don Traffic Branch of the Board of Trade, issued last week as a Blue Book (Cd. 7190), indicates (say "The Times" of Janatury 16) the magnitude of the problem confronting the tratfic authori ties of London. After giving details of the area and population of Greater London, the report etplains. that the Outer Suburban Ring, with a radius from the centre of London to the cir cumference of about 30 miles, comprises an extra 2115 scluare miles approxim ately, with an additional 1,219,789 in habitants, giving in all a total popula tion of 8,471,146 to be considered, spread over an area of 2809 square miles.

QUEEN'S UMBRELLA Queen Mary was the central figure In an amusing incident on Monday, (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 1S), when she paid a sur urise visit to Norwich and spent seve ·at hours in the city visiting the shops, 'be cathedral, the bishop's palace, and the castle. Her Majesty was accom panied by Princess Mary and Princes T-Ienry and John. the party motoring ever from Sandringham. After taking ncielbeon with the bishop the Rfoyal visitors were shown over the cathedral. In the afternoon they went mto the city and did some shopping, and iftorwards visited the castle museum, which was opened by the King when Duke of York, nearly twenty years ago. Her Majesty was with him on let. occasion, and she was now de lighted to. renew her acquaintance with this historic building.

CRIMEAN VETERAN STIRRING CAREER. At the inquest, held at Woolwich yes terday, on 'homas Squires, S3, a pen sioner from the Royal Engineers, who lived at Westdale road, Plumstead, a son of the deceased man (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 7) stated that deceased enlisted in the Royal Sap pers and Miners (subsequently the Royal Engineers) in 1847, and was dis charged in 1871.

The evidence as to Squires's death showed that at the end of November 'deceased was knocked down by two do...

MARRYING OF MURPHYS GRAZING RIGHTS AND AFFECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 March 1914
MARRYINO OF MURPPHYS GRAZING RIGHTS .AN.D AFFEC TIONS. The marrying season is coming on in Connaught-it lasts from about mid January until Lent - and important questions have to be settled. They are questions of money mainly (says the Connaught correspondent of "The Daily Express') because Mary Murphy may be as beautiful as the Dark Rosaleen herself, but if she has not £60 or so by way of a dowry, or a farm with graz ing for about four cows, she is not go ing to find a husband in Mayo. It is hard to believe that so charming a people as the Irish peasantry, to whom the poets have ascribed so many romantic gifIs, should measure the ten derest passion in the terms of gazing rights for four cots, but M n O'Brolligan, who takes an herey interest in the concerns of the! con gested district from which I write, as sures me that they all' do. Mr O'Brolligan thinks romance may still linger in Walsall and Stow-on-the WVold, but he says it has not been known about Ballina since the Widow Mullig...
SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 March 1914
SAFETY IN AIR THE NEW STABILISER Mr Orville Wright's prediction about the popularity and cheapness of aero planing as a national pastime in 1914 ('ays the .New York correspondent of 'The Daily Telegraph") is endorsed by many people here; who believe that a really eflicient "stabiliser" w'll shortly be placed on the market. The Ameri can inventor's device, so successfully tested at Dayton, Ohio, as described al ready in "The Daily Telegraph," con sists of a compensating appliance at tached to the steering post, which, wvhen the machine suddenly dips or swerves, automatically tips the, wing. and rudder to the proper positions. Mr Wright made seven circles without touching any of the controlling levers. Several times the craft appeared to be diving, but on each occasion righted it self automatically. The Ilights were made on the fifth anniversary of the winning of the Michelin trophy by Wilbur Wright, in France. To-day a daily aeroplane passenger eerv!Ce was inaugurated between Tampa, ...
FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 March 1914
FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. Some of us (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 7) remember Mr Walter Passmore's exultant exclama tion in "The Earl and the Girl"-"It ain't the coat wot makes the man; why, demme, it's the trousers." So, evi dently, think certain sartorial experts in America, when they suggest, as we are told, that fashion is about to pre scribe to the "nuts" on the other side, nether garments that shall be "slashed" oi' "slit," just as women's skirts are, according to the prevailing vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up-as it were-endless pos -sibilities, even to the average male mind. We seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more elaborately embroidered than they are now in Dudeland.. Also do there seem to loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bajewelled shoe-strings, and dainty garters-with, perhaps, a bit of airy frilling thrown in. For, once you open the floodgates of fashion at the trousers seams from the knee ...
POSTAGE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 March 1914
POSTAGiE STAMPS EGYPT'S ISSUES (By Fred. J. Melville, in "The Daily Telegraph.") The IKhedive Abbas .Hilmi cele brates this day the twenty-second an niversary of his accession (January 8, 1892), and the new stamps of Egypt which have been ready for some time have been withheld for issue to-day. The new stamps have been expected for some months past, the intention of the authorities to have new stamps being first announced in "The Daily Telegraph" in October, 1912. The cur rent number of "The Near East" pre sents a supplement giving illustrations of to-day's issue, showing the stamps to be distinctly Egyptian in design, and not less characterfstic in execution of the typography of the London firm of Messrs De La Rue and Cozihpany Limited. As "The Near East" states, the most significant fact about the new issue is the use of English wording for French; for "Poste Egyptiennes" is now substituted "Egypt Postage," and the value "Un Millieme" gives place to "One Millieme," etc. All the va...
