BATTLE OF BISHOPS KIKUYU AND ITS ISSUES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

BATTLE OF BISHOPS KIKUYU AND ITS ISSUES. (By A.G.G. in "Daily News and Leader.') \Vhen the heather is dry ita :mall spark will set it alight, and the fi tmes will travel far. That is the e: planation of the fierce conllagration that is raging in the Anglican Church to-day. The spark that fell at Kikuyu in June drop ped innocently enough, uI:: a train that led straight to the po\ t.er inaga zines of the C'hurch. That the storm should have conie fronl Afri a Is in ac cordance with precedent. The desert, 'we have been told, is the hone of the heresy. And yet it would be lifficult to tonceive :t people less likely to be con c.erned about orthodoxy or heterodoxy than the simple pagans who dwell in the highlands of the Kikuyu country, east of Victoria Nyanza aonl a little south of the Equator.

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

" FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE (By Duncan Swann in "The Daily Mail.") It was her long mauve legs and the bow to match in her hair that first at tracted me as I leant against the ball room wall idly watching the gyrations of the dancers. She was waltzing with a youth from Eton at the time, of the same immature age as herself, and wore a look of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unskilled movements of her partner, partly to the fact that the occasion was that anoma lous function, a Christmas party, at which all ages from 12 to 70 are repre sented and the young married women are in unfair request. Just as the band struck up the next item I crossed to where she was wrin kling her pretty forehead over the hieroglyphics on her programme. "Are you engaged for this?" I asked, with the unconscious patronage of the forties towards the teens. "I don't think we've been introduced," she replied with hauteur, tossing a mass of fair hair out of her eyes. "I-I beg your pardon," I stammered,...

IN WILD MONGOLIA PEOPLE ARE STIRRING [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

IN WILD MONfOLIA PEOPLE ARE STIRRING Sir Francis Younghusband, K.C.I.E., in a fine article in the "Saturday Re view," says: "All Asia has of late been stxrring into life. And now in the very Ibart of the continent, in its deepest, re mnotest, least accessible parts there is movement. "Even in wiola, lone Mongolia there is a quickening into life. The dull, lethargic, heavy Mongols are bestirring themselves. They have long been in censed at the gradual encroachment of the Chinese traders and agriculturists upon their pasture lands. They have resented the Chinese demand on them for military service. As long as the Manchu Emperors exercised over them a mild and lenient suzerainty they were willing to be included In the Chinese Empire. But when the Man chu Dynasty fell and the control came into the hands of the Chinese, to whose growing pressure on them they so much objected, then they revolted against such authority; they declared their independence of China; they as serted their ancien...

The old lady had to fight despera:e ly against her inclinations as she mad her way to her drawing-room, whetHa Gwendolen Halldare was awalting her. She drove her pointed nails intt her palms--her lips were tight set, uor eyes gleamled, she looked an aged Clytemnestra. The old butler had switched on all the electric lights.

OFF THE EARTH! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

OFF THE EARTH ! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. (By a special correspondent In "The Daily News and Leader"). You soon learn that winter sport in the Alps means really ski-ing. The skaters are a small and artistic class apart. Toboganning is a healthy and vivacious sport for children and those who are child-hearted. Sleighing, well wrapped up in furs, with plumed horses tad bells a-jingle, is for rich Germans l?ol-sleighing is excellent communal fun, requiring considerable skill for such a run as the full length of the Cresta. But ski-ing is for those who are young and adventurous, who love to range on mountain slopes instead cf a rink behind the hotel, and. who are sound in wind and limb. The man who is just beginning to wonder whether he is too old at forty and is a newcomer looks upon the young ann ruddy ski-ers at the hotel as an elderly farmer regards Hamel at Hendon. Ah: new blood, supple limbs. and exquisite skill! The lucky young rogues! HIe merely listens with interest to their a...

TOURING PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

TOURING PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. "First stop Mars." It sounds adven turous, but then if your car is the tele scope and your conductor Professor H. IH. Turner (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 5) you soon discover that the journey of a few million miles to Mars is a mere fleabite to the distance covered and the sensations enjoyed b fore you are back again at the start ing point in the lecture room of the Royal Institution in Albemarle street. In a flash on Saturday afternoon we were at the end of the first stage of the Journey. True, we had not quite got the length of Mars, but the big telescope 'tad used its seven league boots to some purpose, and before wondering eyes a big globe was floating on the screen, the planet Mars as near as human :gency has so far brought it. We look °d for canals and possible signals from the Martians, but whether it was that the inhabitants had not heard of .ur tour or were disgusted with the liberties taken with their sphere they made no sign...

MILLIONS FOR WORKERS PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

MILLIONS FOR WORKERS PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME. Mr Henry Ford's scheme to distri bute £2,000,000, representing approxi mately one-half of the profits of the Ford Motor Car Company, among the employes attracts universal attention (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph" on January 7). Additional details from Detroit. fur nished by the secretary of the com pony, are to the effect that employes will share in the profits annually, and no employe over the age of 22, not eyvn floor-sweepers, will receive less then. £1 daily. Mr Henry Ford. the originator of the scheme, is quotpd as declaring that capital and labor hith erto have not shared profits to the ex tent they should. As to the possibility of losses, nothing definite is forthcom ing from Detroit so far, but every mechanic in the United States now contemplates offering his services to the Ford Motor Company. "The greatest revolution in the mat ter of rewards for workers ever known in the industrial world," is the de scr...
