The 'Herald,' in the course °i an article deploring the mar vellous growth of gambling since ien, points out that no Ie.ss than 135 days are occupied with either horse or pony racing with in the metropolitan area proper, [iot mentioning trotting races and those which are held just out side the defined boundaries of «w metropolitan area, such as ' wsford, Menangte, Kembla 'wnge, Berry, Wyong, and Tag eorali, at each of which places wrse race meetings are held « least once a month, with an 'Qa Pony meeting thrown in. As J matter or fact, the only effect J any value that arose from **? wade's gambling law has J been to diminish open street and shop betting. But since this has been driven to the race course the advantage, as far as the public morals are concerned, is one...

THE CASEMENT TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 4 July 1916
THE CASE&ENT TRIAL. At the conclusion of tile Crown case Sir Roger Casement, who was charged with treason in con nection with tire rebellion in Ire land, made a statement, but not upon oath. Speaking with con siderable emotion, he said he wished to say a few words with reference to some mis-statements in the evidence. He declared that he had never , at any time, asked Irishmen to fight for Ger many, always claiming that Irish men had no right to fight for any land but Ireland. The state ment that' he -had got his own people reduced to starvation ra tions because they had not join ed the Irish Brigade was an abominable faIsehood,rThe rations were reduced throughout Ger many owinig to the blockade. The suggestion that the men were sent ' to the punishment camps at his instigation because they had not joined the brigade was unfounded. He had not sold himself to any man or Government. He had not allowed any Government to use him. From the moment he lan ded in Germany to the mome...

The jury found Casement guil ty of high treason, and he was sentenced to death. The jury were out 50 minutes. When the verdict was announ ced Casement smiled half -sadly, holding the diock rails. He then reached out his hand to a war* de|r- for some papers, and began i;o_ read his statement, first bro kenly, then firmly. He told his story written three weeks ago in prison. 'I am being tried by my peers of the dead past,' he said ; ''so antiquated is the law that must be used to slay an Irishman that they have brought in an Act of 1351 to convict me.'

'Yet there are more than 10, 000 pist dogs kept at Leipzig, use less luxuries, which are fed on good food, the eight of which would make the mouths of many a poor human waif . water with envy. ? . / 'This is a scandalous state of things, ? ^ which must, no longer be tolerated. 'Let the authorities raise the dog tax. The result will be a snug little revenue.

a war Story. A London correspondent tells a . new story— from a military lios- ' pital. Among tlis soldiers in the ' hospital was a rough-looking 'fel low, with the physiognomy of a l'rhseliligliier, and apparently a complete stranger to the tender and sentimental feeling. In the same, ward lay a drummer boy, concerning whom ho hope of re covery was entertained. The man. puzzled the doctors and nurses. His recovery was strangely de layed, though there was no ap parent reason except his own disinclination, why he should not admit that he was all right and fit to be discharged from the hospital. A. watch was set up on him. and it was then discov ered that he was in the habit of making his way to the side of the lad, smoothing Ms pillow, watching over him, and gene rally performing the duty of a watchful and affectionate nurse. It was this devotion to the boy which hold him to .thfr. hospital. The proposed war tax on mat ches in EnglW has brought about a tremendous boom ; in the sale J...

TH15 1?ICH^T MAN IN THE THE CZAR1. Not Rockefeller, Morgati, Roths rIliId or Krupp. .

He is the Czar of Russia, and no man living knows ins weaun. rus inhume Is said to be a million or so dol lars a day, so that one could roughly work out a capital of thin* like ten to thirty billions as the sum of Ms possessions : but after all, it is only guess work. The Dayton 'Daily News' explains something of the sour ces of this vast properly. As head of the church, he owns all of the church property of the realm, amounting to bil lions. But that can be left out of consideration. He owns in his own name a hundred and fifty million acres of land, and upon this land are the most magnifi cent timber, the most colossal mines, and agricultural tracts enough to -furnish food for ana tioji of people. The State, orGo vi'iiiiii'Mil, pays him a salary of i-n million dollars a year ; arid...
