THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 March 1914

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. Concorning the supposed language of anthropoid apes, Professor Bautan has recently taken up the question and arrives at a negative result. It will be remembered that Dr. Garnier came to the conclusion that monkeys have a language analogous to human languageo and express themselves by signs as well as by sounds which they omit. According to Professor Boutan, there is only a difference of degree be. twoon this and human speech and not one of kind, He observed the sounds made by a biggon which he had cap tured when young, and his experi ments cover more than five years. Hie finds that the animal can produce only epontaneous and instinctive iounda corresponding to a state of satisfac tlon or the like, or again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appeaor to correspond to a real language, but rather to what he eallo "pseudo-lan guage." While sounds of real lanu. guage are acquired by education, those of pseoudo-lan...

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 March 1914

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS, It is notew rthy that two murderers have recently suffered capital puuish. nient in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent, of capital seon tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain being over 50 per cent, IThe newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beheading, but it is left to the separate States to choose their own motho~.l, In those districts which were anni?ied by Napoleon I, the gull lotine utill prevails, Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife If they please, The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he Is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long aword.

FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 March 1914

FORTUNES REFUSED. It is said that when it 'became known that the letters of the great Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, were to be published, offers to pur chase them were received from all over the world, and that one great nowspaper proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon which she 'might inacribe her own price. The offer was refused. Robert BIrowning constantly refused to 'write 'for the magazines and re views. lie only departed from his self-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity, In his later days, when Bro'wnlng so cieties were sipringing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were 'offered to him even 'for a short 'poem, He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying d(lay. But this determination to refuse money when it is offered is evidently not lthe attri'bute of .the wevll-toido qnuy, for a laborer in Pennsylvania has just refused two fortunes amounting to £20,000, which...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XX. Suspense. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 March 1914

h0e Wroat Montamor By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoreas of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XX. Suspense. A veiled woman, finely ,evelopeld, ill black, stood to the left of the vicar, who gazed at her in mild as tonishmlont. Netta stared at her, won derlng rather than alarmed. Lady Montamor's great eyes flashed scorn. She had at once recognisold Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out of the shadow cast by a stone pillar. And Robert drew himself up and looked at tlhe spot in the veil where the eyes of the intermeddler should be. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as well as of determination was expressed by every feature of his comely face. He recognised Gwen dolen--but also recognised that she bad no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, on a par withl thile fact that she had huntu ed him down, probably by detectives in her pay. Indignanlt, his first instinct was to protect Netta, "After that, the de luge," he thought, as, turni...
