SCENES IN DUBLIN STAMPEDE AND REVOLVER. Mir Bonar Law, Leader of the Oppo sition in the Commons, fulfilled a num ber of political engagements in Dublinr to-day (says the Dublin correspondent of "The Daily News" of November 29), and as a result opposing factions met in the streets, and indulged in scenes of wild disorder.

MAGIC AND TRADE [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

M1AlC AND TRIADE At the Japan Society -last evcnin_ Dr. W. L. Hildburgh,, a member of the council, read a paper entitled "Japanese Popular Magic connected with Agriculture and Trade (says the "Daily Telegraph" of December 11). Mr Henri L. Joly presided, and there was a large and appreciative gather ing of members of the society. Dr. Hildburgh detailed the numer ous charms used and customs prac tised by the Japanese in connection with the weather for protecting crops, for securing prosperity in trade, and for obtaining immunity from fire and thieves. With an incantation rods or skewers were planted in the gropnd for the protection of the property and to draw destruction down upon any body who should attempt to take wrongful possession of it. A charm written on a piece of paper where a wild animal might pass was con sidered likely to turn into a piece of string and catch the animal. A wheel of cardboard and straws with suspended figures was thought to bring prosperity and avert evil. ...

ZOO CUBS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

S ZOO CUBS The London Zoo has little, luck with its youngsters "born in the gardens" S(says ,the "Daily News" of November 'Sam and Barbara, the. Polar bears, were presented-for the seventh year in succession--with two babies on Friday last, but have lost them as usual.. This year the officials -determined that the youngsters should not be left to their father's large and casual feet;, nor to their callous mother. She is worse than the father, by far.. The first cub to these unnatural parents was born in 1907. The father killed it. Since then the youngsters have died each year within a few days of' birth. ..This year. preparations were 'made to give the cubs.every chance. Like all bear babies, they are remark ablyj small, no .larger-than " dog' pup pies, in:fact. Barbara's Polar'Idea is that what her children want is plenty of cold open air and wet concrete, and she gives it to them. Last Friday the cubs were rescued at birth .and put' .into a warm basket with liot water 'bottles.. A...

- BRIBERY ALLEGED FOOTBALL INCIDENT Many prominent footballers were in court yesterday, when the Smethwick magistrates investigated the charge against Pascoe Bioletti of attempting to bribe Jesse Pennington, the captain of the West Bromwich Albion Football Club, to lose or draw a match with Everton (says "The Daily Express" on December 12). Mr Chapman said he had hoped to be able to advise his client to e'e.t for the case to be dealt with summarily, but from certain matters that had come to his knowledge it would be bet ter for the case to go for tria'. Mr J. S. Sharpe outlined the charge, and remarked that the pro c.utcr. were the Albion Club, supported by the Football Assoclation. "The charge," he said, "is a serious one, and Bioletti, if convicted, is liable to two -years'. imprisonment, or a fine of £500, or both. "On November 28, the eve of the match between West Bromwich Albion and Everton, Mr Jesse Pennington re ceived, at Tire Hawthorns, a visit from a mysterious stranger, w...

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

OLD AUE TO STAVE OFF. Notwithstanding the vogue of soured milk, there is really no specific antidote to old age, says a Tgreat Lon don physician in the "Daily Mail" of November 26. "Now and again a very old man attributes his length of days to his abstemiousness. He has never smoked or consumed alcohol, and he has been stringently abstem ious with regard to solid food. "But then another centenarian tells us that he has eaten and drunk heart ily all his life and never denied him self any pleasure. People practise all sorts of things, avoiding salt, eat ing cheese, drinking milk, drinking nothing but water, eating pounds of grapes or other fruits, living on vege tables or nuts; but so far as a medi cal man can see, and he sees all sorts and conditions of men, no particular diet or odd vway of living has any in fluence in prolonging life. AVERAGE PEOPLE: "I speak, of course, with regard to average healthy people. Those dis eased in any way must observe cer tain strict rules appropriate...

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE TRAINERS AT A PROTEST MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

ANIMALS ON THE STAGE TRAINERS AT A PROTEST MEET ING. A little group of a dozen professional animal trainers had a front seat at a public meeting last night at the Ken sington Town Hall (reports "The Daily News" of December 16). The meeting was called to protest against cruelties to performing animals.' The trainers' spoltesnlen were "Captain" Woodward, who trains dogs. Mr Cunninghame-Grahanm, who pre sided over the early part of the'meet ing, declared that exhibitions of per forming animals were debasing alike for the trainer and for the public. There was nothing exhilarating or soul-raising in seeing an elephant standing on its head, or dogs and cats firing cannon. ,Ie urged people to attend such shows and hiss. Sometimes hissing was a sacred duty. Messages of sympathy were read from Miss Lind-af-Itageby, Archdeacon Wilberforce, Lord Mbrley, Mr Percy Illingworth, M.P., and Mr Bernard Shaw. Mr John lGalsworthy said he had a commonsense which told him that wild anilnals \\ere happier...

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. Perugia's pretence that he stole the "'Gioconda" from the Louvre with a view to restoring some of the master pieces carried away by Napoleon is badly chosen (says the Paris correspon lent of "The Daily Telegraph" of De cember 16). He does not seem to know that the "Gioconda" happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that were never in the possession of Italy. It was acquired from the artist by Francois I., King of France, for the sum of 4000 gold ecus, and had been at Fontainebleau and Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre. That Peru gia simply hope to make money out of the theft seems to be proved by the fact that before he carried off the pic ture he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers. Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in his room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December 2?, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the theft,...

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER The Marquis of Salisbury, who pre sidfd last evening at the annual meet ing of the Personal Service Associa tion (says the "Westminster Gazette" of December 12), held at the Portman Rooms, apologised for the absence of Mrs. Asquith, his colleague in the presidency, who was absent for the first time from the annual gathering of the association. They had every reason to be satis fled, said the chairman, with the work of the year. They had planted that plant, and it was flourlshing-not by any great growth, but by a steady growth which belongs to things that succeed. The position of the associa tion in that work reminded him of the ordinary broker. There were any number of enterprises which needed energy to make them succeed, and there was a large number of men 'and women anxious to do. something for their fellow men and women: but until that association came into existence they could never bring them into relationshin. A warm welcome was gi...

REDUCING DIET HOW MR TAFT FARED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

REDUCING1 DIET HOYW lilR TAFT FARED. Professor Taft, the ex-President, af ter lecturing here last night in defen'c of the Monroe Doctrine, the enforce ment of which, he said, was essential in order to exclude from the hemis phere the selfish political interference of European Governments, gaily in formed his old friends that he had in nine months reduced his weight from 221, stone to 1714 (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily News," December 13). Asked lhow he did it, he said, "I've lost 7011)b of flesh since I left the While House by dieting. I have dropped po tatoes entirely, also bread in all forms. Pork likewise is tabooed, but I can eat most vegetables, all fowl, but not sal mon, which is the fat member of the fish family.

TAXI=CAB IN FRANCE DRIVERS ARE DARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 February 1914

TAXI-CAB IN FRANCE. DRIVERS ARE DARING. The Parisian taxi driver ii a pecu liar individual, says "The Motor." While he bears the ear-mar'is of his brethren in other great cities. he has many characteristlcs all his own. i-e can be as ferocious as an Apache or as docile as a lamb-acci rding to his mood, but always he is a dare devil, taking chances at which an auto mobile race-driver would falt'Žr. Upon entering a French taxicab, you usually reach your destination safely, but have many a thrill on .the way. The pilot of the Parisian c(ab pos sesses a fund of general information, providing you speak his language and have silvered his palm. He knows no thing if you are a stranger and have neglected to "come across." He is as garrulous as a politician or as dumb as an oyster: it depends on the way you treat him. There are no half-baked emotions in his makeup. This particular class of taxi man can come closer to running down a pedes trian or crashing into a vehicle, with out hitting eith...

STOMACH TROUBLES [?] TO ACIDITY. SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914

STOMACo H TROjB)LB.? LUE 'TO ACIDIT .. 80 SAYS EMINENT SPEC;IALIST. So-called stomiach troubles, such :ie indigestion, wind, stomach-a'he and in. ability to retain food, instead of indi* eating that the stomach is out of order, are iti nine cases out of ten simply evi tderce tlhat fermentation is.taking place ino the food contents of the stomach, aieusing the formation of gas and cids. Wind distends the stomach; and causes that full, oppressive. fieling sometimes known as heartburn, :while the acid irritates and inflames the delicate lin ilg of the stomach. The stomach, however, is not at fault. The trouble lies entirely in the fermenting, food. Such fermenitation is unnatural, and acid formation is not only unnatural, but may involve the most serious con sequences if not prevented. To proe vent or stop fermentation of the food contents of the stomach and to neutra lise the acid, and render it bland and harmless, half a teaspoonful of bisu rated magnesia, probably the best and most ...

THE BIRD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914

TIHE BIRD MAN. - ; MAr hawker and' his biplane have given Melbourne a new sensation. It is true we have had flying men.before. hut like Labor leaders, who do not work, their special cachet seemed to be their inability to fly. In Sydney they have been more fortunate, but in Mel bourne, until the advent of Mr Hawker, we had only two flying men. One,' ilamniond, certainly was able to: fly: sin-e he negotiated several flights about the city and Geelong. He,ihow ever, required an enormous area of flat ·ountry for rising and landing pur poses, and on the.whole his feats did' not stir the imagination of the phblic. The other bird man who essayed a flight fronm the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where he had an enormous at tendance, was the most unqualifled failure as an aviator the world has known since Iearus. His machine was unable to rise higher than the top of the cricket ground fence, over which the daring bird man hung and tumbled in the most undignified fashion, amid jeers alnd laughter ...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THE SUNDAY BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914

B MaLBOUB 1BRNl ETTBR. THE SUNDAY BOATS. g. L. Stevenson, in one of his charm. iog books, gives a graphic description of the Sunday marine picnics his heroes ran in San Francisco under the title of Ilebdomadary excursions, but better known to popular fame as the Drome daries. These Californian trips had as their distinguishing features abundance of noise supplied by blaring brass bands and unlimited consumption both ashore and afloat, of choice edibles and potables. The San Francisco trips seemi to have been run on a scale of magnificence not known to us, and yet we have for years had in our midst as a permanent feature down the bay pie. iics quite equal to anything the novel ist describcs as existing in the Cali fornian city. Not only at this season of the year have we the trade picnics, which are exceedingly numerous, but tlerc are in addition the daily boat trips to Geelong and the Heads, which are nothing but cheap picnics of which the citizens of Melbourne take full ad. vantast...
