NATURE RESERVES [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
NATURE RESERVES If we coduld go back ':a -hundred years we should find many birds anti plants which: are now extinct, or> learly so, comparatively common iri this country (writes H.F.S., in "The Westminster Gazette"). No one seems to have thought of the creation of nature reserves for their protection or for any application of the law to close seasons, except for game. And so birds like the hoopee and the ori ole, the harrier and the crested grebe and the buzzard, are now unknown in many parts of the country where they were once common. This brings ms to the point of this article, which is to call attention to the new society for the promotion of nature reserves which has just been formed with the Right Hon. J. 1W. Lowther as its pre sident, and many distinguished scien tists and ornithologists and botanists on its council. The aim of the society is to add to the number of nature reserves which have already been-formed by the Na tional Trust. These are too few and far between to ...
WOMAN SUFFRAGE DEMAND FOR GOVERNMENT MEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
WOMAN SUFFRAGE DIEiMAND FOR GOVERNMENT MEASURE. (By Mrs M. G. Fawcett, in "Daily News and Leader.") 'All the suffrage ~societies, whatever their fundamental differences as to me thods, are now agreed'that' in order to obtain the object which they have in common a Governmenit measure is a necessity. They are unanimously of the opinion that a private member's Bill is no good, and that -those who would persuade them to the contrary, at this stage in the history of the move ment, are simply trifling with the sub ject. . All that can be done to promote women's suffrage by means of private members' Bills has been done. I will not say it has been useless: far from it. It has been good, for purposes of propaganda, to draw attention to the fact that "the-people" consist of men and women, and thatto enfi-anchise only one half of "the people" is a very im perfect and lop-sided interpretation of democracy; the meetings In support of the" various private members' Bills and the debates upon them ...
KINGLY COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
KINGLY COURAGE. In Sweden a remarkable story is told of King Oscar's courage and resolu tion. The narrative recounts that a sol dier, a manl of imnmense stature, while lying under sentence of death secured a long knife, and defied anyone to en ter his cell. On hearing of the circumstance the King drove at once to the prison, and, d!sregarding the warnings of the otll ciae, entered the man's cell alone and unarmed, locked the door behind him and then reasoned with the convict. It would have been a remarkable in terview, even if the King had taken a pardon to the convict. But so far from this, he actually explained to the condemned man why he had decided to reject any appeal for mercy: 'yet he so worked on the man's feelings that wvhen, with a farewe.t handshake. the King left hint, he was totally sub dued. and ready to meet his fate the next morning like a soldier.

SECOND THOUGHTS THE REFORMED CHARACTER [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
SECOND TIOUHfTS THE REFORMED CHARACTER (By W. Pett Ridge, in "The Westmin ster Gazette.") A distinct amount of swaggering characterised his gait as he came down the road, and the manner in which he removed a pebble that stood in the way indicated proud determina tion. He patted, more than once, the front of. his blue serge jacket to make sure that contents of an inside pocket were safe. "My responsibility," he said, half aloud, "will soon be at an end." The small numbers on the doors were of brass. and use of chamois leather made them glisten in the sun shine. Raising the knocker of a cot tage to give one definite knock, he observed that he had mistaken a 3 for an 8. Be went back for the space of five houses. . "That's my name," said the old lady, with reserve, "but I can't ask you in side because, to tell you the fact, I'm turning out one of the rooms. What have you called about?" "Working up north," replied the young man, "for the. last three months, and I've been on chummy terms ...
FRANCOIS CELLIER DEAD CONDUCTED GILBERT-SULLIVAN OPERAS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
FRANCOIS CELLIER DEAD CONDUCTED GILBEtT-SULLIVAN OPERAS. One by one the famous band that in one way or another were responsible for the Savoy operas is dwindling (says "Lloyd's Weekly News' of January 11). Sir W. S. Gilbert, the librettist; Sir Arthur Sullivan, the composer; Mr R. D'Oyly Carte, the producer, and several of the famous actors and actresses have crossed the border; and now :Mr Francois Cellier, who conducted the orchestra, has gone. Mr CeIlier died o.n.Monday at his residence at Crane's Park, Kingston, at the age, of sixty four. Francois Cellier was the youngest of three brothers, all of whom made their mark in music. Of far wider range was the work achieved by Al fred Cellier, the eldest, the well-known composer of the immensely popular opera, "Dorothy" (which, scarified by all the critics on its production, became one of the greatest successes of its time), and of such serious music as his setting of 'Gfay's "Elegy." Cellier began his connection with the Gilbert and ...
FAMOUS YACHT A RECORD VOYAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
FAMOUS YACHT A RECORD VOYAGE. SA splendid yachting voyage was completed (says the Bombay corres pondent of "The Daily Telegraph" of January 9) with the arrival of Lord Brassey at Bombay in his famous yacht Sunbeam. Lord Brassey is the father of Lady Wllllingdon, wife of the Governor of Bombay, and their Excellencies boarded the yacht to greet him. The Sunbeam left Marseilles on No vember 29. She encountered a furious gale on nearing Port Said, which the yacht rode out well, but the voyage .from Aden to Bombay was a triumph. The distance is 1800 miles, and the yacht covered it in 10 days 8 hours under sails only, without using her engines. Lord Brassey, in an inter view, declared that such a performance was never done before, and would never be again. FOOT-STONE. R.I.P.

TITLED PAUPERS [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
TITLED PAUPERS Some persons imagine that because a man possesses a title he must neces sarily be rich (says "The Glasgow Weekly Herald." Never was a greater mistake made. More than one noble- j man has inherited a name of great dis tinction, but he also inherited a large number of debts. With property mort gaged and rio ready money to meet pressing claims, his position is dis tinctly .unenviable. Of course, amongi our peers there are a large number of very wealthy men, but, on the other hand, many of the great people whose nornes you see in the Society columns of newspapers from time to time are nothing more than "titled paupers" many of them relatively poorer than the humblest wage-earner. Theirs is a constant light with poverty, which in their case Is a social crime. Almost every day they are confronted with one problem-how to make ends meet in such a way that it will not be necds- i sary for them to forego any of the lix urles or pleasures to which they im agine they are entitled...
GIRLS AS JUDGES COMMUNITY RUN BY CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
tion. GIRLS AS JUDGES COMMUNITY RUN BY CHILDREN. A London magistrate was present when the court of the Little Common wealth at Flowers Farm, Batcombe, sat at the week-end to investigate certain charges which had been brought against the citizens of the unique com munity amongst the hills of Dorset shire (says the Dorchester correspon dent of the "Daily Chronicle"). In this community a number of chil dren-whose characters are not unble mished, they having been sent to the farm from" various juvenile courts throughout the country-are framing their own laws, administering their own punishments, devising their own stan dards of conduct, and evolving a sys temn of life unchecked by any authority beyond that exerted by their own pub lic opinion. They have a judge - a girl of 13-and the Commonwealth con stable is by no means physically the most poweful inmate of the farm; in deed, it is recorded that on the night of his appointment he was requested to. see that a delinquent retired to bed ...
MODERN EDUCATION ADDRESS BY MR BRYCE [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 March 1914
MODERN EDUCATION ADDRESS BY MR BRYCE The Right Hon. James Bryce, upon whom a viscountcy was conferred at the New Year (says "The Daily- Tele graph," of January 3), yesterday open ed the Conference of Educational As sociations at the University of Lon don, and in the course of his inaugural address made an earnest plea for the teaching of the BIible in the schools. He also put before the delegates many suggestions of topics which deserved consideration, asking them, in conclu sion, why English youths employed abroad showed less interest in their work than their foreign competitors. This question he did not answer, but he left it to his hearers as a matter. deserving careful thought. Some idea of the importance of the conference may be gained from the fact that at it are represented numerous influential educational bodies, among them being the Art Teachers' Guild, the Associations of Assistant Mistress es, Science Teachers, University Women Teachers, and Teachers of Domestic Subjects,...
