PAMPERED ANIMALS PIGS MANICURED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
PAMPERED ANIMALS PIGS M ANICURED. Li\ve sheep, w-carling what appeared to he linen blankets to keep their wool clean, were among the many unfamiliar features yesterday of the exhibits at the Royal Agricultural Hall, which is being rapidly turned into an enormous farmyard and cattle shed for the open ine of the annual Smithfield show by the King on Monday (says "The Daily Ex press," December 6). The remarkable manner in which canldidates for Smithfield honors pre pare for their ordeal is disclosed in the flllowing interesting article: MAKING A CHAMPION. "Townsmen who go to Smithfield to see their prime beef or bacon in the ori ginal seldom give much thoutght to the care with which the beasts on showv are selected and fed. Prize animals are not picked upl haphazard and then merely fattened for thle show, as no champllionshipls would lie won that way. The owner of a pedigree herd looks over his animals carefully when they are still young, and selects those whichl seem most likely to fa...

WAFER OFFENDS WITNESS D1)AMAGES AWARDED Mr John Charles Gurr, a pensioned police sergeant of Sunbury, was awarded £25 damages in the Law Courts yesterday (says "The Daily Ex press." December 6) in his libel action against Mr John Henry Scott and Mr Daniel Collins. also of Sunbury. The statements comlplained of were con tained in circulars charging Mr Gurr with having held up to ridicule the Eucharist wafer. The jury also returned a verdict for Mr Gurr on Mr Scott's counter-claim for damages, but as the judge had left the court judgment was not entered Mr Albert John fBovay, a retired Civil servant, of Teddington, who was the first witness yesterday, said he was a member of the Church of England,. and attended St. Alban's Church. Ted dington. "In August, 1109," he added.

The large wafer fell to the ground, and Mr Gurr said, '...
ST. PANCRAS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
ST. PANCRAS Mrs H. B. Irving, famous as the crea tor of the part of "Trilby" on the stage has played many popular roles, but none more popular than that of "pud ding lady" down St. Pancras way. The name is an invention of the chil dren, and it has stuck. It should be explained to tnose who don't know St. Pancras children that Mrs Irving Is one of the visitors who go unobstrusively among the poor and give valuable hints on.household mar keting and cookery. She related some of her experiences to a "Daily News" representative: "I may find the mother ill in bed when I visit a home," she said. "Or perhaps she cannot leave the baby and ethers of the family. They must .lave their meals, of course, and it may not be wise to give the money to buy them. So I go out myself among the stalls in Somers Town and see what I can get. "Well, I can buy 3 lbs. of potatoes for a penny-quite good-a ha'penny worth of carrots. As for meat, it is bought in 'pieces.' I buy them at 3d. or 4d. a pound." "You p...

SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
SCROOQE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." That Christmas is no longer a fes tival, but a nuisance, has long been a heresy privately held by many. But with the dreadful example of Scrooge before them they have dared to noth ing more than dark mutterings. They are of those who give, but without joy, and who let the dogs loose on carollers if the street is so dark .hat the dogs cannot be recognised. But this year-it is a fact so signii cant that the sounds of the knell should be mentioned to all those who claim they retain the true spirit of Christmnas--the heretics are publicly stating their heresy. "The Christnmas box," said one of :hese blasphemers to a "Daily News" representative, "ought to be sup pressed. We have had enough of this blackmail, and the risk held over us .,f being denounced as curmudgeon, a Scrooge, by all the leeches who have ever said 'Good morning' to us ,hroughuut the year. It is time it was ;topped. It is senseless. "if a man who is employed by some body else ...

SUNSHINE AND SNOW SPORT IN THE ENGADINE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
SUNSHINE AND SNOW SPORT IN THE ENGADINE. New Year's Day in the Swiss moun tain resorts is (says a special corres pondent of "The Daily News and Lead er," writing from Pontresina), one of glorious sunshine and intense frost. 'Better conditions for tihe skaters who have gathered here from all the corners of Europe have never been known; but the ski-ers are still looking for more snow. Yesterday there were a few grey clouds that gave them hope, but the snow suddenly changed its fickle mind, and ahis morning the region of white above the Engadine Valley was defined In gold and blue by a resplen dent sunrise. There is no wind, except that report ed by ski-ers in the hotel smoking room, who have laboriously climbed all day to the snowfields to find it, and then sailed down to tea in minutes to tell us of "wind up there like sharp knives." On the lower slopes the air is in complete repose-which Is fortunate, for'the thermometer shows an astonish ing degree of cold, which, however, weo do n...
THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN IDYLL OF THE FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN 1DYLL OF THE FOREST. (By M. P. Willcocks, in "Daily News and Leader.") Seen from afar, this Breton beech wood is just a blue mist on the horizon. But within it the stillness is so deep that no twig can fall or undergrowth rustle without being noted. With these sounds comes the sense of an abiding presence, as of one n ho moves about his own house. In summer the ponds re flect the green world that surrounds them, and across the long white roads. where the branches almost meet over head, blows the woodland smell, damp and fresh with the breath of air and moss. "Lord of the Seven Forests" was an ancient title of the noblesse when almost all the Breton land was forest, the temple of strange worships, each spring therein a haunt of goat footed dwarfs. Now, through the tunnel of the trees, there shines this winter day the open sky and beyond it, more mist of wood land. A silver birch waves its few pale leaves in air. There is the scent of cleft wood from the heaps o...

IN VOLCANO'S CRATER PHOTOGRAPHER'S ADVENTURE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
IN VOLCANO'S CRATER PHOTOGRAPHER'S ADVENTURE With two thousand feet of photo graphs of the very bowels of Vosuvius in his travelling bag, Mr Frederick Burlingham ar'rived in London yes terday (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January 2). Four days before Christmas lhe climbed down into the heart of the burning mountain, and at a depth of 1200ft. (or nearly a quarter of a mile) stayed for twenty minutes to take a series of moving pictures. At any moinent he and his two Italian conm panions might have been burnt to cinders or blown to atoms. CONTRAST IN TWO DESCENTS Only once before has the crater been explored to such a depth. Last year Prof. Malladra. of the Vesuvius Ob servatory. made the pioneer descent, buit lie made it under carefully-chosen conditions, and with ideal equipment, and nearly all his photographic plates were ruinled by chemical action. Mr lurlingham had I-obson's choice in the matter of conditions, could not procure even one serviceable rope, took down with him ...
WOMAN'S LOOP IN AIR "A WHIRLING DELIGHT" [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
WOMAN'S LOOP IN AIR "A WHIRLING DELIGHT" The first woman to loop the loop In the air (says "The Daily Mail" of January 2?) is Miss Trehawke Davies, who experienced this thrilling sensa tion yesterday as a passenger with Mr Gustav Hamel at Hendon Aero drome. Miss Trehawke Davies is also the first passenger to loop the loop in England. In looping the loop the airman as cends to a considerable height and dives vertically for some distance, then suddenly bringing his machine back to the horizontal and forcing its nose upward until the pilot is upside down. The machine then completes the circle and returns to its normal position after a further dive. Before taking up Miss Trehawke Davies Mr Hamel looped the loop seven times to test his machine-an SO h.p. Morane-Saulnier monoplane. Then, with Miss Davies, he climbed to a height of over 1000ft. and described a perfect loop, descending about 300 ft. At the top of the second loop the machine began to plane down on its back, but Mr Hamel had ...
WOMAN OF TO=MORROW IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF FEMINISM [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
WOMAN OF TO=MO1RROW IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF FEMINISM S(By Ht. M. Swanwick in "The Daily News and Leader.") There is one thing one would like feminism to do at once, and that is to change its name to humanism. The great change. which has been coming over the humanist movement of late and which has been increasing the velocity of the movement so that one feels it will in the near future sweep in all humanity, is that it is becoming a working women's movement. It is t turning women who never worked be r fore into workers, and it is touching the greyest lives of toiling mothers with warmth and light. In England, the movement began itn the middle classes, and some of the most effective stimu lus was at first given by men. It now receives its velocity and mass mainly from women, and these tmasses are the o working women. Humanism is a far wider creed than 1 a merely political one. It has its roots a in social necessity, and, deeper still, - in ethical and religious Right. It is t based on til...

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED While there is as yet no doctor who will say that radium is a "cure" for cancer (says "The Daily Express"), there is among those who have had ex perience of the treatment of cancer by radium a growing hope that its strange powers may one day be successfully harnessed. This hope has received what to a non-medical mind seems like a very wonderful confirmation in results which have been obtained in the Cancer Cha rity Home connected with the Middle sex Hospital. But it must be under stood that medical research men are extremely unwilling to create the im pression that they have found a "cure" unless they have much stronger evi dence than has been obtained in the home. Hitherto an inoperable case of cancer has been regarded as ultimately fatal, save in the rare and almost miracu lous circumstances of a recovery tak ing place "by itself." The Cancer Charity was founded many years ago as a place in which incurable cancer patients might await...
